In Metroid Dread, knowing how to block the deadly attack of EMMI is essential for your survival in the game.
Although the game doesn’t teach you exactly how to do this and says this is a very difficult skill to master, don’t worry, it’s less complicated than it looks, and in today’s tutorial, we teach you how to do this.
How to block EMMI’s attack in Metroid Dead
To block EMMI’s attack on Metroid Dread, you first have to understand that each of the robotic enemies operates in one way, but that what you have to do is always the same thing: stare at the enemy’s hand.
When their hand starts to emit light, that is, glow, press the X button, and Samus will make the move to parry their attack, leaving them paralyzed for a moment.
It might seem difficult at first, but as you progress through Metroid Dread, you’ll get the hang of it. This isn’t a skill you’re likely to be able to do 100% of the time, but with some of the EMMI’s it’s critical to know how to stop their attack, as you’ll likely get caught more than once in the same chase.
In case you don’t want to devour the game, the tip is to practice on the first two bosses of the type how to parry their attack since they are the easiest to learn to do this.
