YouTuber Block Flames With a DIY "Sekiro" Umbrella Shield

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a difficult game made easier through an array of ninja gadgets. One of the best gadgets, hands down, is the loaded umbrella shield—a spiral of steel that protects the player from projectiles.

YouTuber-slash-mad-scientist Colin Furze wanted to see if he could recreate Sekiro’s folded umbrellfor himself. Shockingly, it worked, and you can watch Furze wielding the wrist mounted shield below as he uses it to defend against fireworks, a flamethrower, and the sparks from machine tools. According to the YouTube description, the video was made in association with developer From Software and publisher Activision.
