[RPG] Can a player split up attacks like they can movement


I didn't think so, but I've read a couple postings elsewhere that make me think otherwise.

Ex. A fighter with 'Extra Attack' from the PHB:

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of
once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

To me, both attacks would be during the same attack action, so the fighter could move 10', attack twice, then keep moving, since you can split up movement.

But, could they move, attack once, let's say the opponent goes down, then move to another opponent and use their second attack?

Best Answer

Yes, you can!

Look at Players Handbook p. 190.

Moving between Attacks

If you take an action that includes more than one weapon attack, you can break up your movement even further by moving between those attacks.
