Icon Claymore.png

Claymores are one of the 5 weapon types that characters can use in Genshin Impact.

Claymores restrict the character wielding them to slower hits than other melee weapons like Swords and Polearms, but those hits deal much more damage per swing. Claymores also have a damage bonus towards breaking Geo objects, such as Rock Shield Hilichurl Guards' and Rock Shieldwall Mitachurls' shields. They are also the most effective at destroying ore nodes for resources, and rock walls for revealing secret areas.

Normal Attacks

A Claymore user's Normal Attack chain typically consists of 4-5 slow, but powerful and wide, melee attacks.

Charged Attacks

A Claymore user's Charged Attack has a small windup before performing a furious chain of attack that continuously drains their stamina. This attack will end with a more powerful slash once the character runs out of stamina or reaches the max duration, which can also be triggered if you stop holding down the attack button.
