The basic attack action is a standard action that allows a character to use a melee basic attack or a ranged basic attack, two at-will attack powers that every character possesses, regardless of class.

When a power allows a basic attack, either a melee basic attack or a ranged basic attack can be made. If a power specifically calls for a melee basic attack or a ranged basic attack, that type must be used.

A melee basic attack is also included as part of certain other actions, such as an opportunity attack or charge. Some powers or effects (especially warlord powers) give you the ability to take an extra basic attack action when it isn't your turn.
