This is how combos in Anthem work: The combination of two different attacks is a combo. This leads to additional damage and an effect that depends on the Javelin you are playing.
Such combos can be caused either by your team or by yourself. The attacks can be divided into two types:
Primer Skills: Primers place negative status effects on the target and cause elemental damage. They are marked in the game by a “circle icon” in the skill description.
Detonator Skills: Detonators trigger the combo effect when they hit an opponent who was previously hit by a primer attack. They are marked by an “exploded” icon in the game. So, If someone in your team is constantly dealing with primer attacks. You can use detonator attacks to make a combo. These combos are one of the most effective ways to deal with high damage.

The choice of your elements can be beneficial: In general, elements in Anthem are an important factor. If you choose them wisely, you can easily eliminate enemies with shields and armor. But elements not only have shield and armor effects, but they can also make life difficult for opponents with status effects.
