The variety of exploration in Genshin Impact is considerably greater, with 7 different Elements to experiment with and 5 different weapons to choose from. Every Genshin Impact character has its own unique weapon type. The Traveler, for example, uses a sword, while Ningguang wields a Catalyst, and Zhongli uses a polearm.

Xiangling was the lone polearm character when the game was first released. With the updates, however, the roster of polearm users and polearm weaponry grew. Here is a list of the Best Polearms in Genshin Impact.
