Fighting Honda Tadakatsu
This mission is just a one on one fight with Honda in a small arena. There is no shrine or place to stop during this mission, as soon as you start moving once the mission loads Honda will engage with you, so do anything you need to do before you move.
Honda Tadakatsu Boss Fight
Honda was already in the first Nioh game. He uses a spear and electric spirit animal. Just like with most human bosses the same tactic applies. Run sideways near him so he misses all of his attacks (he usually does spear stabs which are really easy to outrun), when he finishes he’ll be vulnerable and you can land a few hits. Repeat. Stick to mid-stance or high-stance for optimum damage output. You also get his spirit animal “Shin-Roku” as a reward.
This finishes Horns on Head, Dragonfly in Hand side mission in Nioh 2.
