On a Dark Souls 3 for ps4 (latest patch but it's always happened), if you're locked onto an enemy, sometimes hitting circle (to roll) causes your character to parry rather than roll if a shield is equipped.

This happens for all of the weapons I've used but it's not exclusively a parry thing- whatever your L2 trigger does (default control layout- it's the Parry button), sometimes will trigger randomly in fights. Sometimes not even in fights.

Why is this happening and how can I stop it? Has anyone else experienced this?

It's infuriating.

Edit: I've further refined this to a specific, easily reproducible example. If you equip the Deep Battle Axe, pressing up and circle at the same time will cause the action of L2 happen.


Edit 2: Ok this just happens when you press L3. Still. How do you turn it off?

    Have tried noticing if you press L2 by mistake when pressing L3? Have you tried using a different controller to see if there's anything wrong with your DS4? – João Neves May 19 '16 at 12:09
  • definitely happens on my white controller; i'll play for a while on my black one, but im pretty sure it happens on both – Andrew Luhring May 21 '16 at 0:05

Controller was messed up for some reason.
