Tackle is a skill in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Lunge into a shoulder tackle, pushing back enemies to create distance.


Skill exclusive to Crossbows, with the exception of the Repeating Crossbow. The player gets down low and lunges forward with their shoulder, causing heavy stagger to enemies and creating distance between them. Grants hyper armor throughout the duration of the skill.


Single playerEdit

A useful defensive skill, Tackle can be handy for instances in which enemies get too close for comfort. Due to the hyper armor granted by the skill, Tackle can be used to push back enemies that have the player swarmed or cornered, allowing one time to regain composure and possibly escape to a more open area.

Online gameplayEdit

Some may find that Tackle has a number of PvP applications. Whether it be used to stop another player's combo, or to interrupt the swing of a larger weapon such as an Ultra Greatsword or Great Hammer, the hyper armor inherent to the Tackle skill can be a big help in a number of different circumstances.
