How to Beat Soldier

Sword Soldier

You won't want to stay away from these soldiers as they'll throw firebombs at you. Always ready your shield and if they do as well, kick it to create an opening then strike for the kill.

Spear Soldier

Similar to the Sword Soldier. Kick when their shield is up then head straight for the kill. Be relentless as they can consume a grass to restore their health from a distance or throw a firebomb at you.

Axe Soldier

A soldier's attack is incredibly slow but the Axe soldier takes it a step further. You can easily parry its attacks for a good riposte. Simialar to the shield and sword soldiers, don't stay away from them as they can restore their health and throw firebombs at you.

Halberd Soldier

A soldier with no shield. They have a larger range than the other soldiers but they lack defense so bait their attack then go for a kill.

Crossbow Soldier

Against crossbowmen, you'll want to bait their attack before launching an attack at them. Their reload speed is pretty slow and it's their most vulnerable phase.
