In the dynamic world of Genshin Impact, each update typically introduces at least one new weapon to coincide with the arrival of fresh characters. These signature weapons are carefully tailored to complement each character’s playstyle, offering powerful effects that synergize with the unique abilities of Genshin Impact’s diverse cast. The latest addition to the roster, The First Great Magic, enhances Charged Attacks while providing increased damage or movement speed based on the party composition, aligning perfectly with the skills of the newest five-star unit, Lyney. Now, leaks are shedding light on the weapons to anticipate in the second half of Version 4.0.

As the Fontaine update enriched Genshin Impact with an array of new weapons, the Version 4.0 rollout introduced a set of forgeable weapons representing each weapon type in the game. Additionally, the premium Battle Pass received a significant update, including the addition of five new weapons as rewards for purchasing the “Gnostic Hymn” upgrade. The game’s fishing mini-game also contributed a new weapon, the “Fleuve Cendre Ferryman” sword, for players to obtain.

Version 4.1 promises further weapon excitement, with the introduction of two new characters, Neuvillette and Wriothesley, along with their signature weapons. Leaks have also hinted at an exclusive four-star weapon as a reward for completing Version 4.1’s flagship event.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Android, and iOS, with a Nintendo Switch version currently in development.


Pokdepinion: Personally, I’m not sure if I would bother with weapons yet. It depends on how I feel about the new characters first. Definitely have more than enough resources, just a matter of finding the energy to do a deep dive into the game again given the sheer amount of content I’ve yet to explore.
