In combat, a defending unit can perform a counterattack if certain conditions are met. This lets the unit retaliate against the attacking unit.

The default condition to be fulfilled to enable a counterattack is that the defending unit's weapon range matches the distance to the attacker, but certain skill effects can change this condition, for example by guaranteeing or disabling counterattacks.

If the defender can perform a follow-up attack, they will. This attack is also considered a counterattack.
