If you’ve been playing Genshin Impact , you’ve likely developed a party filled with characters that mesh with your sensibilities. Now that you have the crew of your dreams, it’s time to think deeply about what weapons they’re using.
Weapon quality is denoted by a star ranking that ranges from one to five. Better weapons have higher star counts. Ideally, you’d arm your crew exclusively with five-star weapons, but they can be rather difficult to obtain. Luckily, three-star armaments are abundant in the world and can be upgraded to the point where you can’t tell the difference. Watch out for these five three-star weapons to bring your team to the next level.
How do weapons work in Genshin Impact?
There are five weapon types in Genshin Impact: swords, bows, polearms, claymores, and catalysts. Each type is useful for different circumstances, and each character can only utilize one of these weapon types.
The effectiveness of each weapon depends on three factors.
1) Star rating
As we mentioned before, each weapon has a star rating between one and five. You’ll receive one-star, two-star, and three-star weapons as regular drops from simply playing Genshin Impact. Four-star weapons can be received as rewards for completing specific quests and as rewards from gatcha rolls. Five-star weapons are exclusively gained via gatcha rolls.
