There are two types of DPS characters in Genshin Impact. One with good AoE damage that can hit multiple enemies at the same time, and one with high single target damage that is useful against bosses with high HP. While both of them are useful, the latter is considerably more important, as hard content in Genshin Impact usually has only one boss in the final round.

Therefore, in this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best characters for single target DPS in Genshin Impact.

1. Kamisato Ayaka

Ayaka is probably the best boss killer in Genshin Impact 2.7, with CRIT DMG being her ascension stat. At level 80, she can get up to 88.4% bonus CRIT DMG, which allows her to focus on Crit Rate more. Her Cryo element is excellent - not only can players unlock extra crit rate with resonance, but they can also freeze enemies with Hydro support. This allows Ayaka to shine in freeze teams and focus entirely on offense.

Her Elemental Burst summons a wave of Cryo slashes that deal heavy damage to opponents. Combine that with Ayaka's Cryo-infused attacks and all bosses should be destroyed in no time.

2. Hu Tao

Another character with CRIT DMG ascension stat, Hu Tao is neck to neck with Ayaka in the race for single target damage. However, the reason Hu Tao is in the 2nd place is that she needs Hydro support to enable Vaporize. Ayaka, on the other hand, can dish out the high numbers by herself.

Furthermore, Hu Tao's constant need of being under 50% HP also makes her reliant on shielders, which in turn limits her team comps. She needs someone to shield her and can't go with healer characters.

3. Ganyu

Not many characters in Genshin can compare to Ganyu in the ranged damage department. With her CRIT DMG ascension stat and multiple AoE skills, she can deal excellent damage even at C0. Overall, she performs mostly identical to Ayaka in Cryo team comps, freezing enemies to deal high crit damage continuously.

Ganyu’s charged attacks are different from other bow characters in the game. Her charged attacks have different levels and each level has a different damage multiplier. This is super useful against enemies with weak spots, as all bow shots against that are a guaranteed crit.

4. Eula

Eula is the best Physical DPS character in Genshin Impact, with no equal. Most of her DPS comes from her physical attacks and Elemental Burst. Similar to the other characters on this list, her Ascension stat is also CRIT DMG. Her kit revolves around her Burst, which allows Eula's attacks to stack damage during the duration of the skill. When it ends, all the damage is released in the form of a huge AoE explosion, dealing Phys damage.


Her Cryo application also grants access to the Superconduct elemental reaction, which amplifies her physical damage even further.

5. Arataki Itto

Itto has the potential to deal incredible damage with his attacks, however, he needs a lot of support from other Geo Characters. This is the reason why the character is only #5 on the list. His abilities work really well together, with Elemental Skill taunting enemies and Elemental Burst increasing overall DPS. Itto mainly deals damage using his Charged attacks, which are enhanced by Superstrength stacks from Normal attacks and Elemental Skill.

His skill set scales based on DEF, which makes building good artifact sets for him fairly easy.
