Handles in Lies of P are pieces of a weapon that can be removed and combined with different blades to forge a unique weapon. In Lies of P, players discover fully forged weapons that can be dismantled into two parts which are the blade and handle, each having a weapon skill that is bound to it. The combining mechanic of a weapon can only be done when using or resting at a Stargazer. Players can freely swap their weapons as long as it is in Pinocchio's inventory. Most handle parts of a weapon are bound with defensive weapon skills or Fable Arts. This page features all of the featured Blade parts in Lies of P.

In Lies of P, pressing the normal attack continuously, Pinocchio will do a basic attack combination, effective in dealing successive hits to targets. Charge attacks on the other hand are hard-hitting blows that can stagger enemies and quickly raise their Groggy Points (Stagger Points in Souls). It is worth noting that Dash and Roll Attacks are also available in the game making combat fluid and accessible especially for Soulsborne veterans.
Sneaking and Back Stabs are still viable strategies in Lies of P. Like in Souls games, players can sneak past their enemies and perform a Back Stab. This a solid strategy if you want to clear out enemies one at a time and save you the hassle of getting overwhelmed. Enemy placement is Lies of P are represented decently however, expect multiple enemies stationed at key points, keeping their player on their toes.
Players can block enemy attacks by pressing the Left Bumper on an Xbox to guard. On a successful Guard, players will be able to take reduced damage at the expense of some Stamina. The amount of damage mitigated will become Guard Regain, and while players have Guard Regain, attacking enemies will gradually recover HP. Guard Regain will be lost over time.
