- R2 the moment enemy attack lands: Umbrella Deflect. Spread the Umbrella to deflect enemy attacks. Umbrella Deflects are easier to time than sword Deflects
- L1 while holding R2: Spins the umbrella while it's open, allowing you to deflect attacks without breaking guard. The window for deflection is also longer than the standard deflection, allowing you to deflect attacks from multiple enemies or multiple faster attacks from single enemies like Ashina Elite or Long-Arm Centipedes with each spin. Costs 1 spirit emblem per spin.
- With the Projected Force skill unlocked, the Umbrella can also be used offensively. Pressing the attack button while the Umbrella is open will activate a cross slash attack.

Loaded Umbrella - Magnet Notes & Tips
- Speak to the Sculptor located at the Dilapidated Temple to unlock a Prosthetic Tool Upgrade.
- The Magnet variant of the Loaded Umbrella has a few distince features the other umbrellas do not carry. First, it has the ability to magnetically attract light arms bullets and nightjar shurikens. This effect is only slight, but it does bend the trajectory towards the player when out.
- Lastly, the Magnet variant is the only variant that can block cannon fire or other explosions without the player taking full damage and being posture broken/knocked down. Players will need to perfectly deflect the explosion with other loaded umbrella variants.
- These Tools, varying from the Loaded Shuriken to the Shinobi Firecracker, are equipped via the Shinobi Prosthetic and can be swapped out on the fly, allowing for creative and innovative solutions to the many exploratory challenges the player may face.
Loaded Umbrella / Iron Fortress Story & Lore
- The idea of utilizing this extraordinary device may have been derived from the DS Dark Hand, which manifests as a vortex-like shield, when it's left-handedly. Such vortexes represent The Abyss, at times rendered as a headpiece . The Darkness, which The Abyss represents, was often reputable for its heavy weight. Hats like these are called kasa and share their etymology with the Japanese word for "umbrella" (which is also pronounced "kasa", but written 傘). The fan's function as an umbrella (shadow) or parasol (sun ward) may explain its function annulling Darkness/Terror and Fire.
