Battle Points, also known as BP, are a mechanic in Xenoblade Chronicles X. They are used to raise the level of Arts and Skills.

Battle Points are earned in a number of ways:

The total BP cost to level a standard non-Tension Art to its maximum is 124 BP, while it costs 186 BP for a Tension Art. The total BP needed to max out a Skill is 62 BP. Most sources of BP are automatically awarded to all party members, even those yet to be recruited.
