Regardless of which controller you’re using, jumping in this game is done by holding the dodge button, running forward, and pressing the jump button while running. For PlayStation and Xbox controllers, this would mean holding down the Circle or B button respectively, then pushing the stick forward and clicking the left stick during the running animation. The default controls for the PC version have the jump button on the space bar, making it the same as the dodge button. This means you’ll need to quickly press space to jump, but you can remap this control scheme if it’s too difficult.
Jumping can be useful for accessing hidden areas or alternate paths. They offer some control over where you land and provide a good opportunity for dive attacks. You can use jumps to leave creative messages in hard-to-reach places, or you can use them to outwit slower enemies. Just keep in mind that Dark Souls 3 is not a platform game. Trying to use jumps as consistently as in other games won’t get you anywhere fast, especially since they don’t boost up on level up like normal stats do. If you want to use the jump in combat, it is better to use jump attacks. These are performed in the same way as kicks – just replace the attack button with the strong attack button!

First of all, kidding aside, if you’ve never played Dark Souls 3 before, it can be a bit difficult to figure out how to approach enemies and bosses, what to focus on, and how to get off to a good start. From the beginning. This guide assumes a few things explained in the sections below, but also that you don’t spend your soul until you’re done with Firelink Shrine, however if you feel like you don’t want to risk losing your force-gained souls, feel free to use them. to upgrade your stats as you go… just be sure to read the Stat Mapping portion of the guide if you decide to do so.
I prefer to delete this section first, as I suspect not many people are going to read the entire guide, which is fine, and instead want a quick summary of what to do. So this is it.
Jumping without rolling
There’s a kind of ingenuity to the mechanically crude jumping mechanic of the Dark Souls series (obtained on an Xbox controller by holding B to run and then pressing LS to jump). They make every time you decide to jump off a cliff to get a glowing white mystery item an amazing and suspenseful experience, simply because they feel so elaborate.
