Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based RPG but you can even let the game play itself if you turn on Auto Battle. Honkai: Star Rail is a departure from Genshin Impact’s combat style and dwells in the more slow-paced and tactical turn-based combat. This also means that you can activate a system that plays your turn automatically based on certain parameters. If you ever wanted to just relax and know that your characters are strong enough, you can use this to your advantage. This guide will show you how you can turn this on in-game.
How to Use Auto Battle System in Honkai Star Rail
When you enter a combat encounter in Honkai: Star Rail, you have the option to use Auto Battle. In combat, you are given the responsibility to choose the actions of your characters. Each character has their own turn. Once all characters in an encounter finish their turn, that’s the end of a Cycle. However, sometimes you know that your party of characters is strong enough to defeat enemies without much effort. This is when Auto Battle comes into play.
Here are the steps to turn on Auto Battle for combat encounters in Honkai: Star Rail:
- Find an enemy and engage in combat with it.
- Once in combat, find the Auto-Battle button on the top right of the screen.
- There are 3 buttons here, The Auto Battle button looks like an hourglass on its side. It is usually the 2nd or the center one.
- To manually decide which skills your character does, click this button again if you want to turn it off.
Make sure that you only use Auto Battle in Honkai: Star Rail when you are confident you can win the combat encounter with your characters. Most of the challenging fights will require specific input and strategy, so use Auto Battle at your own risk.
