Anchor Shot ( アンカーショット, Ankā Shotto) is a Driver Art in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It is one of Rex's arts when wielding the Broadsword (Chapter 1) or an Aegis Sword. When using this salvager's unique Art, Rex fires his anchor at the enemy, causing one or more HP Potions to drop that restore Health to all of his allies. The player can choose to preserve this for a pinch or use it immediately as necessary.

After Vandham demonstrates the technique to Rex, Anchor Shot also gains the ability to inflict Topple if the first hit connects.
