In Nioh 2, the game saves in two different ways, through automatic saves and manual saves. Addressing the autosave first, Nioh 2 will automatically save and track your progress as you play. That way, if something gets disconnected and you’re unable to manually save, you can jump back in from the last autosave point.

Nioh 2 autosaves relatively often as you work your way through the campaign. That said, it makes sense that you may want to manually save to be doubly sure you won’t lose progress. To manually save, you have a few options available to you. If you’re actively playing the game, you’ll stumble across Shrines.

By praying and interacting with Shrines in Nioh 2, you’ll manually save the game. Can’t find a Shrine? No problem. You can also manually save by opening your map and pressing Triangle. With all of these methods, you should have no trouble saving the game and tracking all of your progress in Nioh 2.

Now that you know how to save in Nioh 2, we have a few other guides for you that may be helpful including what to give purple Kodamas in Nioh 2, how to leave missions in Nioh 2, and how to get Onmyo and Ninja skill points in Nioh 2.
