Best Team Compositions for Chongyun

When you play Genshin Impact everything depends not only on your main character but also on the composition. You should learn how elements complement each other and build the best team for your main. Below you can see the best team composition for Chongyun with Main DPS, Sub DPS characters and one support. Also, we have included alternative characters for each role that go well with Chongyun too.

Elemental Reactions

Sub DPS

Main DPS

Sub DPS

Support

Superconduct

Overloaded

Melt

Swirl

Chongyun

Klee

Fischl

Sucrose

Alternative Characters

Yanfei

Xingqiu

Diona

Chongyun is one of the most powerful Cryo characters but still, he has his weak point of shifting all physical damage to Cryo when he uses his Elemental Burst. When you play him as sub DPS you should start all combos with Chongyun’s attack to apply Cryo followed by Pyro to get the most out of Melt reaction. So Klee is great for main DPS in such a case. Moreover, she doesn’t deal any physical damage and will not be affected by Chongyun’s Elemental Burst passive. Between Melt elemental combos you can use Fischl’s Oz to deal decent damage and apply either Overload or Superconduct, which lowers physical damage resistance before Chongyun’s physical attacks. Sucrose crowd control comes in handy for all the team.

Good characters for this comp: Diluc, Hu Tao, Venti, Xiangling, Amber, Diona.
