Nioh Part-2 Walkthrough

Deep in the Shadows Walkthrough Guide

  • From the starting area, you need to continue running ahead onto a narrow passage.
  • You will come across plenty of enemies and items to loot throughout the area so keep your eyes open.
  • Continue heading up, take right, and proceed onto a circular pathway. Again, there are plenty of enemies in the area so be careful!
  • A little ahead, you will come across a locked double-door. To open it, you need Key to Residence that is near a Yokai in the room opposite of the locked door.
  • After opening the door, head down into the village below with fire and enemies all around.
  • If you want, you can engage the enemies, otherwise, ignore them and proceed towards the ship.
  • Near the ship, you will come across both the melee and ranged enemies. Simply proceed towards the ship to face the boss named Onryoki.

Onryoki Boss Fight

  • For this boss fight, you need to ensure that your Equipment Load is on ‘Green’ and you’re playing in Low Stance.
  • You either need to try to dodge behind the boss or strafe in a way that you’re safely on his backside.
  • Once you are safely behind him, land a couple of quick hits, and block his follow-up Chain Attack.
  • This is pretty much all that you need to do in order to complete this boss battle.
