Icon Sword.png

Swords are one of the 5 possible weapons that characters can use in Genshin Impact. Sword attacks are the middle ground of melee weapons, the damage and speed of their attacks are somewhere in between the slow attacks of Claymores and the rapid attacks of Polearms.

Normal Attacks

A Sword user's Normal Attack chain typically consists of 5 fast melee attacks.

Charged Attacks

A Sword user's Charged Attack has a small windup before performing 2 fast, arcing AoE attacks in front of them (excluding Jean's currently unique upward launching thrust).
