Using the quick turn move against mini-bosses can be very useful in defeating them. Some mini-bosses move in an instant and can quickly attack Kratos from behind before he even has the chance to react. Utilizing the quick-turn button will help you dodge, block or counter the attacks and sometimes even stagger some of your enemies. This can very well turn the tide of a difficult battle and can lead Kratos to victory very convincingly. If you are having trouble utilizing the L1 and D-pad combo, then you can easily change to your preferred buttons in the controller remapping section of the Setting menu.
