To attack a nearby enemy, press the Right Thumbstick toward an enemy.
To attack enemies at distance, press the Right Trigger to fire your main pistol or rifle. Press the Left Trigger to fire your left pistol or launch grenades, charged shots, or missiles. Move the Right Thumbstick when shooting to change targets.
As you inflict damage, your combo meter fills (advanced moves provide bonus combo). When the meter completely fills, your combo level increases, which makes slide attacks more powerful, ranged weapons fire faster, and also provides an experience bonus.
Many combat moves can be chained by pressing the controls for one move and then immediately following with another.
One of the best examples is sliding. You can first slide toward enemy A and then hold the Right Thumbstick toward enemy B just as you first strike enemy A. This immediately continues Baldur's slide to the next enemy. Successive moves give bonus damage, speed, and built combo level faster.
