Claymores are one of the five 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. Due to being considered Blunt Attacks, Claymore attacks deal increased damage to Geo objects, such as Rock Shield Hilichurl Guards' and Rock Shieldwall Mitachurls' shields, ore nodes and rock walls that reveal 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.

When initiating a Charged Attack sequence from a standstill, Claymore users will cut short the animation of their first Normal Attack and transition it into the Charged Attack windup animation. However, if the first Normal Attack's Attack Speed is too fast, the character will finish performing the first Normal Attack before starting the Charged Attack windup. For example, Sayu who can normally directly enter a Charged Attack sequence from standstill, when at 150% Attack Speed, will have to perform her first Normal Attack before a Charged Attack sequence.

Two iterations of Claymore Charged Attack exist: a spinning attack for the shorter characters (Chongyun, Noelle, Razor, Sayu, Xinyan) and a continuous slash attack for the taller characters (Beidou, Diluc, Eula). However, they are functionally the same. Arataki Itto has access to a non-standard Charged Attack.

By default, Claymore Charged Attacks cost 40 Stamina per second and can last up to 5 seconds.
