Critical Hits refers to the random occurrence of an attack dealing increased damage to an opponent.

If the attack is a Critical Hit, the CRIT DMG multiplier is applied:

The base CRIT Rate for most characters is usually 5%, while the base CRIT DMG is 50%. These attributes can be increased by:

Note that Sangonomiya Kokomi's CRIT Rate is decreased by 100% via Flawless Strategy, which means her base CRIT Rate will start negative. A negative CRIT Rate just means that the attack will never CRIT.

Critical Hits can still register on some enemies when they are immune to damage and trigger further effects. For example, The Black Sword and Favonius Series weapons' passives will trigger after landing a Critical Hit on a Hypostasis in its protected state.

Critical Hits appear as larger-font numbers on the screen compared to non-crit hits. Another way to tell if you scored a critical hit is to watch the DMG dealt; a critical hit will have damage multiplied.

CRIT Optimization

There is a general rule to maximize the product of CRIT DMG and CRIT Rate to maximize the expected DMG.

Let r be the CRIT Rate probability () and d be the CRIT DMG () in decimal form (for example, 150% CRIT DMG would be ).

Suppose the DMG is x without CRIT. The expected damage is therefore:

In general, the goal is to maximize this product by making r and d as large as possible. However, by introducing a constraint on the relation between r and d, it is possible to calculate an optimal ratio between the two. The rule of thumb is to aim for a 2:1 ratio between CRIT DMG and CRIT Rate. See Attribute Optimization for full derivations of these results.

Guaranteed CRIT Hits

General

  • Having 100% or more CRIT Rate means that attacks will always critically hit.
  • Attacks on an enemy's weak point guarantees a Critical Hit. Note that Bosses do not have weak points.
