Genshin Impact has a variety of weapons to choose from whilst playing the game. But in it, players are able to use much more powerful weapons known as 5-Star weapons. However, it can be difficult to figure out what each weapon does or how to get it. So, we’ve put together a list of all the 5-Star weapons.
All 5-Star Weapons in Genshin Impact
All Genshin Impact 5-Star weapons can be found by the game’s loot box system which is known as the Gacha system., There are currently ten of them, with the possibility of more being added in the future. Additionally, each weapon will increase the more you level up your characters. In the list below, you’ll find a breakdown of every 5-Star weapon.
Armo’s Bow on Passive Rank 1 increases the player’s normal attack and aimed shot damage by 12%. It also increases the player’s damage with arrow shots an additional 8% whilst the arrow is in flight for up to 0.5 seconds.
With the maximum Passive Rank, Armos’ Bow damage increases both the basic attack as well as the aimed shot damage by a massive 24% and damage with the arrow shots going up to 16%.
The attack damage of players who use the Aquila Favonia with Passive Rank 1 will increase by 20%. It can also regenerate 100% of the player’s health as well as deal 200% damage to enemies when the soul of the Falcon of the West awakens.
Players can upgrade the Aquila Favonia’s passive rank all the way to increase the attack to 40% with the soul of the Falcon of the West regenerating 160% health and dealing 320% damage to your enemies once awakened.
Kunwu’s Iris Rift
The Kunwu’s Iris Rift 5-Star weapon will increase the player’s attack speed by 10% and increase the damage dealt to enemies who have been hit with any elemental effects by 24%. This isn’t the strongest of Polearms, but the Kunwu’s Iris Rift will allow players to have an increased attack speed of 18% and increase elemental effects by 48% when damage is dealt towards enemies.
Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds
This Catalyst allows players to move 10% faster, and when in battle players will earn a 6% Elemental damage bonus every four seconds. This will last until the character is defeated or leaves the combat area.
When upgraded, the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds won’t increase your movement speed at all but it will increase the elemental damage bonus by allowing players to do 14% more damage to their enemies.
Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
When attacking an enemy, using the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear on Passive Rank 1 will increase your attack stats by 3.2% for six seconds. It increases in damage when leveling up to a certain rank (20, 40 50, 60, 70, 80, 90) with the base attack going all the way up to 674 with a critical rate of 22.1%. This is currently the best Polearm to use in the game and is considered one of the best 5-Star weapons.
Probably considered the strongest of the catalysts in Genshin Impact (next to the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds), Skyward Atlas allows its users to deal more damage to enemies when an elemental attack is used, giving them a bonus of 12%.
It also gives players a 50% chance to get the Favor of the Clouds, which finds and fights all the enemies who are close to you inflicting 160% attack damage to those enemies for 15 seconds. This can only occur once every 30 seconds.
When you upgrade the Skyward Atlas, the elemental damage bonus will increase by 24% with the Favor of the Clouds dealing 320% more damage but still lasting only 15 seconds and only occurring 30 seconds.
When using the Skyward Blade, the chances of hitting a critical increases to 4%. If you use an elemental burst you can gain the Skypiercing might which will increase movement and attack speed by 10%. Additionally, it will increase the basic damage and charged attacks by 20% for 12 seconds.
This bow increases the critical damage by 20% as well as inflicting 100% physical damage occurring only once every four seconds of use. This can be increased on a higher Passive Rank with the critical damage increasing to 40% and the physical damage staying the same.
It also inflicts AoE attacks on enemies when hitting them and when upgraded has a 100% chance of dealing AoE damage compared to its basic chance of occurring which is 60%.
The Skyward Pride is a claymore-like 5-Star weapon that allows players to increase all damage by 8%. When using either a basic, elemental, or charged attack it can create a vacuum-like blade that inflicts 80% of damage to enemies who get in the path of the vacuum.
Once the Passive Rank is increased the damage rises from 8% to 16% with the vacuum blade inflicting 160% instead of 80%. The vacuum blade lasts for 20 seconds or eight vacuum blades with each use.
Another claymore weapon, the last of the 5-Star weapons is Wolf’s Gravestone. When the players use it, they will increase their attack by 20% with every hit on the enemy. It will also increase attacks on enemies when they have less than 30% health and will increase the health of all your party members by 40% once every 30 seconds.
When the Passive Rank is at its highest, the Wolf’s Gravestone attack will increase to 40% and grants party members an 80% health increase. It still also does more damage to enemies who have 30% health and it continues to last for 30 seconds occurring only once.
And that is all the 5-Star weapons that are currently in Genshin Impact. Did you see any you like? Remember, these weapons can all be optioned through the Gacha system, which requires the game’s currency.
This means that you will either have to grind and save up enough to open one and hope you get lucky with the reward or you will have to spend your own money to buy Gacha. We just hope you don’t go bankrupt trying to get them all.
