Weapon Types

Genshin Impact has 5 weapon types at the moment which each of the game characters specialize in one.

  • Bow - ranged, charged-shot ability, medium ASPD
  • Catalyst - ranged, caster, medium ASPD
  • Claymore (two-handed) - melee, heavy hit, slow ASPD
  • Polearm - melee, high rate, very fast ASPD
  • Sword (one-handed) - melee, fast ASPD

A full list of all currently exisitng weapons ingame can be found here: Weapon List

The basic weapon a character starts off with is always 1-star ranked. Weapons can be upgraded depending on their grade, thus allowing them to have higher base damage or weapon-specific attributes.

5* weapons can mostly be claimed with wishes (Gacha System) and are the highest tier weapons ingame with unique attributes.

Weapon Ascension

With the Ascension system, you can upgrade a weapon several times to increase the base damage as well as the main attribute stat (3* or higher).

You need to max out the current weapon level to be able to ascend the weapon to the next stage, which are 20/40/50/60/70/80

The upgrade costs differ from weapon to weapon and can be found in our database.

Weapon Attributes & Stats

Depending on the weapon quality you will have a main scalable main attribute, like CRIT CHANCE, CRIT DAMAGE or BASE DMG which will grow with every level and ascension (upgrade).

Unlike artifacts, the mainstat of every weapon model cannot vary and will always be the same percentage or value.
