Skirmishes is a new system added into Xenoblade Chronicles 3 which was released on July 29th 2022. This page will take you through everything you need to know about Skirmishes, such as where to find, rewards and more.
Where To Find Skirmishes in Xenoblade 3
Whilst you’re progressing through the story and tackling various enemies that attempt to stop you in your tracks, keep an eye out for a prompt which says “Attention”, then press as this will aim your camera towards a Skirmish which is taking place. Approach the enemies fighting each other and you’ll get an option to assist a team, so for example you can choose to backup the Keves Squad or the Kran Crustip Squad.
Skirmish Rewards in Xenoblade 3
Once you’ve chosen a side, help them defeat the opposite side by using various Artes, then you’ll be rewarded with Affinity Points for that team. For example, helping the Keves Squad will give you 50 Affinity Points towards Colony 9. However, sometimes picking a side may not be possible, so just choose whatever option is available.
