How and when to use gestures in Nioh

Using gestures is pretty straightforward:

  • To open the Gestures tab, press the Options button on your controller. It will show you a grid with nine preset gestures.
  • They are separated into three groups of different colors: blue, yellow and red. Think of the blue as the positive ones, yellow as neutral and red as the negative gestures.
  • To use a gesture, choose the one you want and press “X” on your controller.
  • To change a specific gesture from the preset, choose the one you want to replace and press the switch mode button (triangle on controller). Select the one you want and confirm.

Why are they so important? Throughout the game, you’ll find large chests with golden fittings. Some of them will have three (not two!) horizontal golden bars on each corner. Once you open the chest, a mirror image of yourself will appear in front of you. It will perform one of your gestures. If you repeat it, the doppelganger will rejoice and leave you a new gesture as a gift. Be aware that you need to repeat the same gesture shortly after, and of course, don’t attack him at first sight. If you fail to repeat his move, he will attack you. You can reset the fight by going to the nearest shrine and re-opening the chest later.

The other situation where gestures are really important has to do with mimicking stone walls. If you come close to them, you can see their eyes, and hear the soft breathing. You’ll have to perform a gesture of a certain color to remove the wall, or not fight it all. It’s not important which particular gesture you use, but what color it is. Some of the clues regarding the correct color can be found near the wall.
