How to parry in Sonic Frontiers

If you’re like me, you might need help with this.

Sonic Frontiers is out now and puts our favourite blue hedgehog in an open world full of exploration and baddies. This guide will tell you how to parry within Sonic Frontiers.

If you’re like me, you’ve used the tooltip of LB + RB (on Xbox) with little success. Holding down the buttons will cause Sonic to prepare himself to parry an attack, and letting them go will cause an animation of just that.

The problem is that Sonic Frontiers isn’t Elden Ring and doesn’t require timing. To parry, literally hold down LB + RB until the enemy actually hits you. Then keep holding for good measure.

The simple act of holding the two buttons down when an enemy attacks will cause Sonic to automatically parry for you. Simple, eh? Perhaps too simple. Oops.

Sonic Frontiers is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Switch. We wrote this guide as we bought it for 30% off on Black Friday (see links below).
