Nintendo’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is one of the most popular JRPGs on the market. One of the game’s key features is its Chain Attack system, which allows players to team up with three other characters to unleash a special attack. Chain Attacks are incredibly powerful, but they can be tricky to pull off. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the basics of Chain Attacks and provide some helpful tips on how to master the system.
What is a Chain Attack?
A Chain Attack is a powerful ability that can only be used by four characters at once. When activated, it unleashes a combination attack by all four party members. The strength and type of attack depends on the characters involved. For example, if one character has an elemental affinity for fire, their attacks may do extra damage against enemies weak to fire.
Chain Attacks can only be used when all four party members have their special “Party Gauge” filled up. This gauge will fill up over time as your characters fight in battle or use certain abilities or items. When it’s full, you can activate a Chain Attack and unleash devastating damage.
How To Activate A Chain Attack
Once your Party Gauge is full, you can activate a Chain Attack by pressing the + button on your controller. After you initiate the Chain Attack, each character will have their own turn in which they can use abilities or items to boost their allies’ attacks or weaken enemies’ defenses.
The order in which each character takes their turn will depend on how well they are equipped with items and abilities that support or weaken enemy targets. You may want to equip certain characters with items that bolster defense or offense, depending on what type of attack
