Bows are one of the five weapon types that characters can use in Genshin Impact.

Naturally, bows boast long-ranged attacks in the game, with Charged Attacks that are capable of hitting monsters as far as the eye can see with the proper aim. Fully Charged Attacks deal elemental damage based on the wielder's vision. They are, however, the least effective at breaking stone objects like ore nodes, with the exception of rocks that will have an elemental effect (such as Electrical rocks being hit by a fully charged fire arrow from Amber exploding in one shot).

Normal Attacks

A Bow user's Normal Attack chain consists of 5 quick mid-range attacks for 4-star characters and 6 attacks for 5-star characters.

Charged Attacks

Bow users can hold and charge their Normal Attacks in order to infuse their element's energy into the arrow. This allows for precise, but slow, aiming of attacks, and also vastly increases the max range and damage of the shot. Hitting enemy weak spot automatically counts as a critical hit, which in most cases is the head.
