Pressure Plates[1] colloquially known as Pressure Sensors, are objects found while exploring the world of Teyvat. They have various functions once activated, such as spawning chests or creating Wind Currents. All of the locations can be found in the Teyvat Interactive Map.

There are multiple ways to activate the plates: one is having a character step on them, but some plates require creating a construct or summoning creatures to apply the pressure while the player performs another task.

There are currently two types of sensors: small plates which require a single character to activate, and larger ones that require two characters (only possible in Co-Op Mode) or certain constructs to activate.

  • Ganyu can activate large pressure plates by using two Trail of the Qilin charges which can only be done if the constellation The Auspicious is unlocked.
  • Geo Traveler: On unlocked constellation.
  • Yanfei can activate large pressure plates, for example by using two Charged Attacks in succession on the center.
  • Mona's water phantom alone will not activate a large pressure plate (but will make part of it light up). But if one uses Mona's water phantom on a large plate and also stands on it at the same time, then the plate will activate. This suggests that large plates require two times the weight of small plates.
