How to Knock Down enemies

Attacking an enemy who is not in Guard state will result in a knockdown or will put your target in a Downed state. On the other hand, if the enemies have their Guard up, you won’t be able to knock them down unless you disable their Guard first. In order to remove them from a Guard state, use characters’ skills instead of normal attacks.

What is Guard state?

Persona 5 Tactica - Battle System Cover

A state wherein a character has taken cover behind an obstacle and can no longer be knocked down by normal attacks. Both your characters and enemies can take “Cover” by hiding behind various objects and obstacles during the battle. Furthermore, your characters will enter a “Guard” state whenever you end your turn while being covered.

Guard prevents being knocked down.

Enemies that are in Guard state won’t be knocked down, and attacking them from behind won’t knock them down either. In conclusion, you must first remove your target from the Guard state if you intend to put them in a Downed state.

How to Disable Guard

The enemy’s Guard state can be removed by attacking them with melee attacks or skills. One of the best ways to succeed in battles is to connect your attacks together; therefore, learning how to put your enemies in a Downed state is crucial in this game.

Knocking down enemies may lead to more powerful attacks.

Persona 5 Tactica (P5T) - Triple Threat

Knocking down enemies will activate 1 MORE, which allows your character to take another turn or action. This will give you a chance to activate other battle mechanics, such as the Triple Threat, which deals huge damage to enemies within its range.
