The Best New Weapons in Genshin Impact 2.0 | Screen Rant

Genshin Impact has introduced a considerable amount of new content since its release in 2020, and with the game’s ongoing success and dedicated player base, this will likely be the case for a long time. From new locations to explore, quests to complete, and new characters to wish for, there’s always something new each month. This also extends to the weapons players can wield, as new ones are added over time.

After the long-awaited Inazuma update, Genshin fans now have an all-new region to visit. With a new land comes new enemies to fight, new culinary dishes to cook, and of course, new weapons to wield. Of all the new weapons that came with the 2.0 update, here are the best ones players should keep their eyes on.

Mistsplitter Reforged

  • This slick sword from Inazuma has high attack and extra crit damage as its secondary stat type, meaning it’ll pair well with characters and builds that buff critical hit rates. Its ability, Mistsplitter’s Edge, increases the wielder’s elemental damage by 12% regardless of what element they use. This makes it a highly flexible weapon that every sword-user can take advantage of, especially those that utilize elemental damage in battle. Additionally, it can grant a ‘Mistsplitter Emblem’ that can temporarily boost the wielder's elemental damage further when they deal a normal attack with elemental damage, cast an elemental burst, or have less than 100% energy. Unfortunately, it’s a weapon with a five-star rarity that’s only obtainable through gacha summons.


  • The Hamayumi is a very simple bow: it increases the user’s normal attack damage and charged attack damage when equipped. If their energy happens to reach 100%, these attack buffs are boosted considerably. It may seem simple, especially compared to the Mistsplitter Reforged, but raw damage boosts will ensure the archer wielding it will have consistent damage output. This bow is also much easier to obtain, as it’s one of the new weapons players can forge in Inazuma.

Kitain Cross Spear

  • Those who equip this polearm have their elemental skill damage boosted slightly. Further, after landing a hit with an elemental skill, the wielder will instantly lose 3 energy but regain a little more after a few seconds. This ability sounds strange on paper, but the tradeoff will help characters regenerate energy slightly faster. Another new weapon introduced in the 2.0 update, a claymore called the Katsuragikiri Nagamasa, has the exact same effect as the Kitain Cross Spear. However, the forging recipe for this polearm can be obtained directly through a new side quest called Orobashi’s Legacy, making it easier to create.
