Primal Combat Basics Edit

L2 - Left Strike Edit

  • Strikes with the left hand/weapon.
  • Pressure sensitive.
  • Sequence of light keypresses lead to combination attacks (combos).
  • Light fast keypresses give light fast attacks that can keep enemies too off balance to strike back.


R2 - Right Strike Edit

  • Strikes with the right hand.
  • Pressure sensitive.
  • Sequence of keypresses lead to combination attacks (combos).
  • Light fast keypresses give light fast attacks that can keep enemies too off balance to strike back.

L1 - Spin attack Edit

  • Spin attack.
  • Force and duration don't matter(?).
  • No combos(?)
  • Tends to hit all enemies surrounding Jen.
  • Sometimes the attack moves Jen backwards. This can be useful.

R1 - Block/Parry Edit

  • Block/parry.
  • Holding R1 maintains the block.
  • Force doesn't matter(?).
  • No combos(?)
  • Protects Jen all around(?)
  • If timed properly as an enemy attacks Jen will block, then parry for damage.


This move seems to be the key to combat in Aquis. Block during the long combos of the Aquis Guards. They also seem to attack slowly, with tipoffs when an attack is coming.

Super Attack Edit

  • L2+R2
    • Slow building, very strong attack.
    • Force/duration of keypresses don't matter(?)
    • Also used to trigger Finishing Move on an exhausted enemy.
    • Can be used for a Stealth Kill

Stealth Kill Edit

  • Move up slowly on an unalerted enemy.
  • Use L2 or R2.

Miscellaneous Edit

  • X switches combat lock to a different enemy.
  • Triangle is the taunt move.
    • Only for show, but what a show in the two Djinn taunts.
  • R3 (depress the Right Joystick)
    • Centers the camera behind Jen/Scree during combat.


  • Changing to/from demon forms (D-Pad) can be useful.
    • The transformation sequence "pushes back" enemies near Jen.
    • They can even be pushed off of ledges, etc.
    • When Jen's human form needs to heal, simply transform back and forth a few times.

Scree Edit

  • L1 does nothing.
  • R1 blocks.
  • L2
    • Soft press is straight left jab.
    • Hard press is uppercut.
  • R2
    • Soft press is straight right hand punch.
    • Hard press is harder straight right hand punch.
