If there are two or more Agents in your squad, hitting a Stunned enemy with a Heavy Attack will trigger a Chain Attack. When the Chain Attack is triggered, players can swap between the characters in the party and the combat Bangboo, to deal massive damage to the enemy.

Chain Attacks can link more than twice on bosses and are the best source of damage output in the game. When in the Chain Attack phase, players get to choose which character or Bangboo they want to use in the next strike, but within a limited time period. Every agent has a different Chain Attack ability, so picking the correct agents for the enemy is the best way to deal the most damage.

Swapping to your Bangboo in the chain attack gives an additional chain attack turn as the Bangboo is always followed by another agent’s chain attack automatically. Also, doing Chain Attacks provides Assist Points, which can be consumed to initiate Assists in combat. Check out the best Bangboos in Zenless Zone Zero that you should use.

Chain attacks are triggered when hitting stunned enemies. To stun an enemy in Zenless Zone Zero, you must build up their Daze meter to the maximum using basic, special, ex-special, dodge counters, dash, assists, or ultimate attacks.

The quickest way to build up Daze on an enemy is using Impact Agents and Defensive Assists. Impact Agents specialize in stunning enemies quickly with hard-hitting attacks. Most of the Defensive Assists of Agents also deal increased Daze buildup on enemies, so make sure to use those Assist points effectively.
