Genshin Impact Top Tier Weapons

Genshin Impact is a team-oriented game. You will need to obtain great characters and make appropriate team combinations to win the day. As for the best builds for Genshin Impact, you can find them here just click on any character that you need information about and you will be forwarded to the required Genshin Impact build. On the other hand, Genshin is a gacha game and obtaining a particular character might be a problem. Top tier weapons in Genshin Impact are also hard to get but still easier than characters. In any case, it is important to know which weapons are the best for a certain Genshin character. So we made this post to let you know more about Genshin Impact top tier weapons and what characters they fit the most.

Use this list as navigation through the post.

Moreover, each type has different rarity items. They range from 1 to 5 stars just like characters and you can also obtain them from wishes but with some restrictions.

5-star weapons can only be obtained through Wishes in Wanderlust Invocation and the limited time event wish for weapons. You cannot get 5-star weapons from the limited event banner with the featured character. 4-star weapons can be obtained from Wishes, bought through Paimon’s Bargains, and be crafted via Forging. Sometimes they can also be found in chests or during some events. As for 3-star weapons they can be found in chests and in wishes, and 2- and 1-star weapons can be obtained from chests in the open world, purchased from NPC shops, found during Investigation or given by NPCs upon following a certain dialogue branch for the first time. 1-star weapons also come bundled with new characters.

Regular low-star weapons are not that good to care about their effectiveness. But when you get a 5-star weapon it is worth making some research to know what character is the best for this weapon. So below you can see the list of the best Genshin Impact weapons with descriptions taken from wiki. But we made it better as we included to this Genshin Impact top tier weapons list the icons of recommended characters that will make the most advantage of the item.
