For the item info, see Driver Combos.

Driver Combos are battle mechanics in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country. They consist of Driver Arts performed in a particular sequence. A Driver Combo begins when an Art inflicts Break on the enemy, after which it can be Toppled, then Launched and finally Smashed by using Arts with those effects before the enemy recovers.

Stage 1: Break XC2 art break none 0.png Effect time: 10 seconds.
Stage 2: Topple XC2 art topple none 0.png Effect time: 5 seconds.

Party's attacks do 25% extra damage.

Stage 3: Launch XC2 art launch none 0.png Effect time: 5 seconds.

Party's attacks do 50% extra damage.

Stage 4: Smash XC2 art smash none 0.png Smash into the ground, dealing heavy damage.

Party's attacks do 50% extra damage.

Toppling or Launching an enemy also produces a medium HP Potion, while Smashing an enemy produces a large HP Potion and causes the enemy to drop items such as Core Chips, Core Crystals, and Gold.

Some Driver Arts, such as Rex's Mighty Ball and Brave Throw Bitball arts, have effects which further increases the damage dealt to Toppled or Launched enemies.

Fusion Combo

Main article: Fusion Combo

If a Driver Combo is triggered while a Blade Combo is active or vice versa, the result is a Fusion Combo, which increases damage, combo duration and EXP, and partly fills the Party Gauge.
