[Top 5] Genshin Impact Best Battle Pass Weapons

Genshin Impact Best BP Weapons
How good is the purchased weapons, really?


In the current version of 1.4., there are only 5 Battle Pass Weapons available, one for each kind.

You can get these weapons by purchasing the Gnostic Hymn via in-game purchase. Gnostic Hymn offers more rewards for players when levelling up Battle Pass levels. Once you reach Level 30, you will be able to choose one of the weapons from the BP bounty up to your liking.

This means you can choose to either pick the same weapon over and over again for its Refinement every month, or you can get a few that completes your need. Remember that you can only get one weapon reward A per period.

Of course, the Gnostic Hymn that you purchase only lasts for one period. You’ll have to purchase again once the period ends.

Now from the existing 5 weapons, here’s an attempt to rank them from good to best.

5. Deathmatch

The Polearm representation, Deathmatch, begins at number 5.

As of now, there are only 4 Polearm wielders that you can play, which is also kind of why it’s low in terms of ranking. The users are much too limited, with Xiangling being free and the other three being five-starred characters such as Zhongli, Xiao, and Hutao.

Saying they’re a bit hard to get is undermining. On top of that, they’re all characters from the event wish banners. If you miss the initial event, you’ll have to wait unitl they make a comeback, which takes quite long.

Deathmatch starts off with a 41 Base ATK and ends with 454 on its maximum level. Its substat is CRIT Rate, which is more than great, with 8% on Level 1 and 36.8% on Level 90.

Its Refinement level increases ATK and DEF by 16~32% when there are at least 2 opponents nearby. In the case that there are less than 2 opponents close, ATK is instead increased by 24~48%.

Weapon details: 

  • Stars: 4
  • Ascension Material: Boreas Wolf’s Tooth, Ley Line Branch, Whopperflower Nectar
  • Base ATK: 41
  • Substat: CRIT Rate (8%)

Why Deathmatch Is Great:

  • Great for main DPS
  • Balanced ATK and DEF boost
  • Boosts CRIT Rate up to 36.8% (the highest between BP weapons)

4. The Viridescent Hunt

Much like Deathmatch, this arrow is pretty low on the list because it’s more suitable for characters whose wish banner is time-limited, aka Childe, Ganyu, and Venti.

Other archers like Fischl, Amber, or Diona aren’t exactly the perfect match for this particular weapon, though it’s pretty okay if you want to use them as a main DPS.

The Viridescent Hunt has a 42 Base ATK, which goes up to as much as 510 on its maximum level. Its substat is also CRIT Rate, starting with 6% and maxed at 27.6%.

The passive skill from the Refinement has such effects: upon hit, Normal and Aimed Shot Attacks have a 50% chance to generate a Cyclone. This Cyclone will attract opponents and deal 40~80% of ATK as DMG every 0.5second for 4 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 14~10 seconds.

Weapon details: 

  • Stars: 4
  • Ascension Material: Tile of Decarabian, Heavy Horn, Firm Arrowhead
  • Base ATK: 42
  • Substat: CRIT Rate (6%)

Why The Viridescent Hunt Is Great:

  • Boosts CRIT Rate up to 27.6%
  • 50% chance to get extra ATK
  • Good for main DPS

3. Serpent Spine

Serpent Spine is a really great Claymore to use, even more with its CRIT Rate substat.

To begin, Serpent Spine has a 42 Base ATK and this can be maxed to 510 once reaching level 90. Its substat is CRIT Rate starts at 6% and eventually goes up to 27.6% at max. A rather clear pattern here, right?

Furthermore, the weapon also offers you a bonus of 6~10% DMG dealt for every 4 seconds the character is on the field. But, during this, the character takes more DMG for as much as 3~1.8%. This effect can be stacked up to 5 times. The count won’t reset even if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by one when characters take DMG.

Seems complicated, I imagine. But in short, at 5 stacks, your character will be able to deal at least 30% additional DMG. Playing solo is the key to optimizing the use of this Claymore, just remember to put on a shield over and over again.

Weapon details:

  • Stars: 4
  • Ascension Material: Aerosiderite, Bone Shard, Whopperflower Nectar
  • Base ATK: 42
  • Substat: CRIT Rate (6%)

Why Serpent Spine Is Great:

  • Boosts CRIT Rate up to 27.6%
  • Boosts DMG in general
  • Great for solo play

2. Solar Pearl

Solar Pearl is amazing for your Catalyst main DPS, but also a pretty good choice for your Catalyst users in general.

With a base ATK of 42 on Level 1 and a maximum of 510 on its max. level, this Catalyst also has a CRIT Rate as its substat. Just like the other Battle Pass weapons, at first, the boost is as much as 6%. On Level 90, it goes for as much as 27.6%.

With Solar Pearl in use, Normal Attacks hits increase Elemental Skill and Burst DMG by 20~40% for seconds. In return, Elemental Skill or Burst hits increase Normal ATK DMG by 20~40% for 6 seconds.

It takes me a moment to understand that. But basically, it means that you can just attack with whatever. Keep on spamming your Normal ATK while waiting for your Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst to be back in use.

Weapon details:

  • Stars: 4
  • Ascension Material:  Sands from Guyun, Sacrificial Knife, Whopperflower Nectar
  • Base ATK: 46
  • Substat: CRIT Rate (6%)

Why Solar Pearl Is Great:

  • Boosts DMG done by Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst
  • Boosts CRIT Rate up to 27.6%
  • Great for main DPS

1. The Black Sword

The Black Sword comes forth to take number one the list.

On Level 1, the base ATK is 42 which can be maxed to 510. Also like the other Battle Pass weapons, The Black Sword has a CRIT Rate substat, starting with 6% and ending with 27.6% on Level 90.

This Sword is also rather suitable for main DPS compared to other roles, as its Refinement increases DMG inflicted through Normal and Charged Attacks by 20~40%.

Not stopping there, it also has a chance to regenerate 60~100% of ATK as HP when scoring CRIT HIT through Normal and Charged Attack. This effect can take place once every 5 seconds.

I feel like it’s pretty clear why it’s great for your main DPS; your constant Normal Attack hits are quite encouraged by this particular weapon. 

Weapon details: 

  • Stars: 4
  • Ascension Material: Boreas Wolf’s Tooth, Dead Ley Line Branch, Slime Condensate
  • Base ATK: 42
  • Substat: CRIT Rate (6%)

Why The Black Sword Is Great:

  • Boosts CRIT Rate up to 27.6% 
  • Great for main DPS
  • Gives a chance to heal on hit (though during CRIT)
