Countering is a gameplay element unique to Gungnir. Upon Guarding against a direct attack, a unit may also launch a counter attack with their equipped weapon if a piece of equipment on the unit permits it. However, for this to occur, the value of the skill used must match the Counter Number of the equipped item. The Tamer class has exclusivity to the katanas, Zantetsu and Shin Zantetsu, which are weapons meant only to counter and are very potent for their purpose.
