To initiate a counter, tackle your enemy at the same moment that it's trying to swing its melee weapon. Counters deal massive damage and are a good way to turn around a 1v1 situation as you will also throw the enemy mobile suit onto the ground. Your mobile suit will be invulnerable through the entirety of the counter and a successful counter will also replenish the boost you lost from the initial tackle. The easiest attacks to counter are down slashes as they have a large wind up making them a very identifiable opening to counter.
