How to barge into enemies when using Shield Shot in Forspoken

The best defense manoeuvre.

Forspoken features various magic spells that players can use during combat. One of the Attack Magic spells, Shield Shot, creates a defensive shield that protects you from incoming attacks. You can also use this shield to barge into the enemies and deal significant damage to them.

To barge into enemies using Shield Shot Lv. 3 is a spellcraft challenge in Forspoken. Firstly, you need to have the Shield Shot Lv. 3 spell unlocked in Frey's Magic skill tree. This will cost you 39 Mana to get Shield Shot Lv. 2 and 112 for Shield Shot Lvl. 3.

Secondly, have it equipped as your Attack Magic, which can be done from the spell selection wheel (RB). Then you need to create a rock shield by holding down the Attack Magic input (RT). The longer you hold the button, the bigger the shield becomes until it reaches its maximum limit depending on your spell level. The words indicate this underneath the spell; in this case, wait for it to say Shield Shot Lv. 3.

Now, simply release the button you have been holding to barge into enemies in close proximity. In my experience, but really up close and personal with them. Furthermore, if the enemy attacks you, the shield will absorb the damage and keep you intact, and if done close enough, it will count towards your spellcrafting challenge.

The Shield Shot is a great spell against fast, aggressive enemies. It would have been perfect against the Dragon you faced at the start of the game!
