Group Attack is the generic name for the Special Combo Moves used by Robin and Nightwing. Group Attack shares the same command as the Special Combo Bat Swarm utilized by Batman and the Special Combo Whiplash used by Catwoman in Batman: Arkham City, namely □+✕ on PlayStation, X+A on XBox and R on PC. In Batman: Arkham Knight, with the introduction of the Weapon Steal ability that occupies this command, the command for the Group Attacks was switched to the same as Batman's Special Combo Disarm and Destroy, namely □+△ on PlayStation, X+Y on XBox and Alt+3 on PC.

As the name suggest a Group Attack can deal damage to multiple enemies at once. Like Batman's and Catwoman's aforementioned moves, these moves can be blocked by Armored Henchmen, shielded henchmen and Brutes and they will not affect those enemies if blocked.

When performing a Group Attack, Robin or Nightwing can hit multiple surrounding enemies at once without getting damage, and floor some of those enemies in the process. Group Attacks reward 10 points per multiplier per enemy affected by them, then add 1 multiplier per enemy floored as a result. Group Attacks will go to waste if they hit no enemies, although they won't break the combo if they fail.

Robin performs his Group Attack by sweeping his surrounding with his Bo Staff. Nightwing does so by throwing and kicking his Escrima Sticks at his surroundings.
