In Nioh 2, Yatsu No Kami makes her entrance in The Viper’s Sanctum. Her big body is targetable as well as her poison puddle and repetitive Snake arm attack provide an easy opening to deal with the damage. Though, her attack pattern changes when she goes all frenzy into Yokai Shift. Her two-arm independently attacks you along with the main Serpent boss charging towards you every single time. In this guide, we will explain how you can deal with Yatsu-No-Kami efficiently.
Snake Boss Or Yatsu No Kami Guide For Nioh 2
As you must have gathered a bunch of Antidote on your way down, select Shortcut for it in case you get poisoned. Poison overtime damage is quite nasty which you want to instantly get rid of. Although her poison spit can be easily dodged and you might not even need Antidote for that occasion but as she goes into Yokai Shift, there is a pretty good chance you might get affected with overtime Poison damage.
Firstly, her tail or whip attacks can be easily blocked by pressing L1 along with her Kunai throwing. You simply need to watch out her grab which she performs when her body is engulfed with black flame or animation. Slowly try to deal with damage when she attacks with her hand or sidesteps her grab leaving her vulnerable to damage. You will get the chance to use your Burst Counter to interrupt her whenever you are in close quarters.
The problematic part is when she turns into Yokai Shift. It’s better to destroy one of her arms before she goes out into rampage in Yokai Shift. You might notice her attacks are similar to her Yokai form when her arm is cut off in normal form. When her arm count is less or maybe two, it is better to focus on the main body. She will charge right at you which will open the window to deal heavy straight thrust damage with your spear or any heavy weapon to interrupt her as shown in the image above. Make distance and let her charge all the time which will simply waste her Yokai Shift duration and take a blow from your character. Remember patience is key, without following her attack or understanding attack pattern will turn this single boss battle a nightmare.
