Genshin Impact Weapon Types

Genshin Impact is the hit game from veteran game developer, miHoYo. Released in September of 2020, the game now has millions of unique players across different platforms. As of today, you can get the game for free on any iOS or Android device. It’s also available on popular gaming consoles, such as PC and PS4. Sometime this year, Genshin Impact will also become available for PS5. Plus, there have been talks about porting it to the Nintendo Switch.

One reason for Genshin Impact’s rapidly growing popularity is its massive open world. Players enter the world of Teyvat, which houses seven nations. Each one has its own distinct cultures and traditions, making for rich lore and an immersive gaming experience. But another reason why players love the game is its cast of colourful characters. In this Genshin Impact Tier List, we’re listing all the playable characters in the game from best to worst.

Read on to see which of the characters are the best picks.

GENSHIN IMPACT TIER LIST

The Genshin Impact team is constantly growing its roster of characters. Currently, there are 34 different options, with more on the way. So, while players wait for new Genshin Impact characters, it’s a good idea to invest in the best picks in the current pool. Our Genshin Impact Tier List categorizes each of the available characters in one of five tiers: S, A, B, C, or D. It also cites their weapon type and element. S-Tier characters are the best in the game, so you should invest in them the second you acquire them. As for characters in A-, B-, and C-Tier, they’re still useful for your team, but have their setbacks. Lastly, characters in D-Tier are the least optimized. Either their skills are more detrimental than useful or their stats are allocated poorly. Regardless, you shouldn’t invest in these characters, if you can help it.
