What weapon is good for Raiden Shogun?

I - Best Raiden Shogun Build

Raiden Shogun is apparently the strongest DPS in Genshin Impact being a flexible character who can deal burst damage. Once she obtains the complete stacks of resolve, she is also an excellent sub DPS with extraordinary battery capabilities.

Her elemental burst alone is able to slice down anyone standing in her way. If you can survive that, you are either a Kaedehara Kazuha or you have to fight for your life with the Archon who moves with godspeed and wields a deadly word.

Best Raiden Shogun build requires the best weapon to make her undefeatable.

Raiden Shogun uses a Polearm as her weapon and you should focus on ER/ATK/CRIT or ER/Electro Damage bonus/CRIT. There are a few polearms she can use and below is the best weapon for Raiden Shogun build.

II - Raiden Shogun Best Weapon

What weapon is good for Raiden Shogun? In fact, Raiden Shogun weapon ranges from 5-stars to 4-stars, making it accessible even for free-2-play gamers.

1. Engulfing Lightening

  • Rarity: 5-star

Raiden Engulfing Lightning
Engulfing Lightening is basically made for Raiden Shogun, so equipping it will make her ultra formidable.

This 5-star polearm is Raiden Shogun best weapon. The signature item gifts a secondary boost to her energy recharge and enhances 28% ATK. You get a maximum bonus of 80% with a whopping 30% energy recharge boost for 12 seconds after an elemental burst is cast.

While Raiden’s Electro DMG scales for every 1 percent of Energy Recharge that she owns over the 100% base, Engulfing Lightning just adds one more layer to that effect.

2. Primordial Jade Spear

Primordial Jade Spear
Primordial Jade Spear is the polearm that any player will want their character to wield.

Though much of her initial damage burst will not benefit from its passive, this Raiden Shogun polearm enhances her CRIT Rate by 22.1%. Despite that, the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear remains a fantastic pick if you do not have more viable 5-star weapons at your disposal.

This spear, which is also suitable for building Xiao or Zhongli, is only available via Wanderlust Invocation Standard Wish Banner at a normal rate.

3. Staff of Homa

Staff Of Homa
Staff of Homa is a top-tier weapon for polearm users.

Although Raiden Shogun may yet have a reliable method to lower her HP and maximize this weapon’s effect, Staff of Homa remains a decent polearm in the Raiden Shogun best weapon list.

It has an insane 66.2% Crit DMG and a highly appreciated stat for ATK and HP bonuses. There's a reason why it enters the top of the best Polearm Genshin Impact tier list.

If you can reliably get the electro Archon to less than 50% HP, the Staff of Homa is easily top-tier weaponry to equip. This can also be used in Hu Tao build to make her one of the best Genshin Impact DPS.

4. Wavebreaker's Fin

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • How to get: Wish Banner
Wavebreakers Fin
Wavebreaker's Fin can do wonders especially if you refine it to level 5.

Being a 4-star polearm, an R5 Wavebreaker’s Fin can also be the best Raiden Shogun weapon. Do remember that it shows the best potential at R3. Its effects are not too desirable at R1, so it’s best to get this polearm to the highest refinement possible.

At Refinement 5, it exceptionally pushes the strength of her Elemental Burst onward. Though gacha weapons are truly a nightmare to refine, Wavebreaker’s Fin is indeed more accessible than 5-star weapons. FYI, it is also the best Genshin Impact Shenhe weapon.

5. The Catch

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • How to get: Fishing system

Different from the above options, The Catch can only be obtained once from the Fishing Association. Being a great choice for F2P players, this weapon (at R5) is a serious rival to the Engulfing Lightning.

It features a 45.9% Energy Recharge stat, playing off of her Enlighted One Passive pretty well.

On another hand, it is tied to the Inazuma Fishing Association which means you needn’t spend any Primogem to get it. You must collect 20 Rusty Koi, 10 Golden Koi, and 6 Raimei Angelfish, then exchange them for the weapon.

Other polearms you can take into consideration to equip with Raiden Shogun are Prototype Starglitter, Blackcliff Pole, Favonius Lance, and Deathmatch.
