How to beat the Blazing Bull in Sekiro
You meet Blazing Bull on the way from the gates of Ashina Castle to the Castle itself after the destruction of boss Gyoubu Oniwa. To kill him, you have to deal two deadly blows.
By the way, you will see one more bull behind the wall of the Mibu Village in the Fountainhead Palace. Walk through the mansion, turn around and see a place for the hook for the roof. The yard is closed, so you can get there only in this way. The tactics are similar.
Try to attack on the head, because the damage will be higher. On the other hand, it is best to dodge, chase the bull and strike some blows on his back. Try to force the bull into a corner so that it does not run from one end to the other. Dodge and strike some blows, including on the head.
