How do I dodge In Wuthering Waves?

Kuro Game allows players in Wuthering Waves to dodge to avoid attacks. If you dodge right before an enemy’s attack is about to land, you will be granted immunity from damage for a short amount of time. You can dodge by clicking the dash button right before the attack hits. Instead of simply running out of the way, you will automatically perform a dodge.

How do I counter attack in Wuthering Waves?

A counter attack is a special kind of move that you can only perform under special conditions. When an enemy is about to perform a special move, a yellow halo will appear around them. If you attack this enemy while the halo is visible, you will trigger a counter attack. A counter will interrupt this special attack, block it, and hit the enemy with a move of your own. The command input for a counter attack is the same as that of a regular attack.

Wuthering Waves is available for PCs and mobile devices.
