Sekiro Blazing Bull Cheese: How to Beat the Boss

The Blazing Bull can be found at the very beginning of Ashina Castle. It is weak to the Shinobi Firecracker, and when defeated drops a Prayer Bead. Here's the easiest way to beat it.


As soon as the Blazing Bull charges in, dodge around it and put it in the corner of the walled-in courtyard in which you're fighting. Don't lock onto it. Instead, run to its left side (your right) and start hacking away at its flank. It will repeatedly try to swing around and knock you away, but as long as you maintain your position on its left flank, it will be unable to hit you as you slash.​


When the bull finally tries to charge away from you, use the Firecracker before it can re-establish itself. Repeat the process until you can strike a death blow against it, and you'll find yourself the proud owner of a new Prayer Bead.
