Our Genshin Impact Weapons List & Types Wiki will guide you all information about Weapon in the game, including type, rarity, ascension, etc.
Genshin Impact Weapons
There are 5 different types of weapons in Genshin Impact, which are Swords, Bows, Polearms, Claymores, and Catalysts. Each type of weapon has its own attribute and each character is only able to wield one weapon type.
|Swords||Swords attacks are the middle ground of melee weapons, the damage of their hits and speed of their attacks are somewhere in between the slow attacks of Claymores and the rapid attacks of Polearms.|
|Bows||Bows boast long-ranged attacks in the game, with charged attacks that are capable of hitting monsters as far as the eye can see with the proper aim.|
|Polearms||Polearms have the fastest attacks of all the weapons and good forward reach.|
|Claymores||Claymores restrict the character wielding it to slower hits than other melee weapons deal much more damage per swing. Claymores also have a damage bonus towards breaking Geo objects, like a monster’s shield.|
|Catalysts||Due to their magical nature, all Normal and Charged attacks performed with a Catalyst are considered elemental damage. The element of the damage depends on the wielder’s natural element/vision.|
Ascension & Leveling
Weapons can be ascended once they reach each max level and required adventure rank.
|Ascension||Max Level||Required Adventure Rank|
Weapons can be leveled in order to increase their power by consuming other weapons or weapon enhancement materials.
