Genshin Impact has 7 different Elements to play with and with 5 kinds of weapons, the range for exploration is even more mammoth. Every Genshin Impact character has a significant weapon type of their own. For example, the Traveler is a sword user while Yanfei is a Catalyst user and Hu Tao wields the polearm.

When the game was first introduced, Xiangling was the only polearm character. However, the list of polearm users and polearm weapons expanded along with the updates. To know which one is worth using and is most suitable with which character, you can refer to our Polearm Genshin Impact tier list.

The Polearm Genshin Impact Tier List list includes all 5-star and 4-star polearms until the 2.1 version. The two 3-star weapons are also included based on their performance to an extent.
