Genshin Impact has a huge weapon arsenal for players to pick from. Choosing the right weapon for your characters can greatly improve their potential, and this goes double for DPS characters. To pump out the huge numbers on your Eula or Hu Tao, you would need the best weapon possible. In this article, we are going to showcase the top 5 best weapons for DPS characters in Genshin Impact.

1. Staff of Homa

Hu Tao is generally considered the best DPS character in Genshin Impact, and her weapon, the Staff of Homa, is definitely part of that. It remains at the top of any tier list for Polearms, with its insane 66.2% crit damage boost. This is the best secondary stat type in Genshin Impact.

Its ability scales weapon damage based on the user's HP, which is strong in most situations. Aside from Hu Tao, characters that go best with the Staff of Homa can be any Polearm DPS like Zhongli or Xiao.

2. Polar Star

All 5-star bows in Genshin Impact are top tier, with the Polar Star and the Thundering Pulse being the best weapons for DPS characters. However, the Polar Star is easier to use between the two. All bow characters in the game can use it... while the Thundering Pulse is too focused on physical damage.

The Polar Star's skill buffs ATK%, Elemental Skill DMG and Elemental Burst DMG, which are needed stats for all Genshin Impact DPS. It works best on characters whose damage comes from their whole kit like Tartaglia.

3. Wolf's Gravestone

One of the earliest weapons released in Genshin Impact, Wolf's Gravestone remains one of the most powerful 5-star claymores in the game to this day. Its bonuses are all geared toward offensive with both skill and 2nd stats boosting ATK.

Furthermore, players can get even more ATK bonuses by striking foes below 30% HP. This team buff makes Wolf's Gravestone useful even on support characters. Song of Broken Pines is definitely strong, but it is in no way as versatile as Wolf's Gravestone. This is why the weapon is on this list instead of Pines.

4. Mistsplitter Reforged

Mistsplitter Reforged is the top choice of most sword users in Genshin Impact, especially the ones who focuses on Elemental Damage. The weapon has a massive boost to Elemental DMG Bonus, which is deadly when paired with characters like Keqing or Ayaka.

Getting enough stacks on the Mistsplitter can be tricky sometimes, but the insane Crit DMG bonus and huge Base Attack stat are definitely worth the trouble. That's why it is amongst the best weapons for DPS characters who use swords.

5. Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds

For main DPS Catalyst users like Klee, Mona and Yanfei, the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds is probably the best all-around choice. It is fairly easy to use - the skill boosts players' elemental DMG by 8% every 4 seconds in combat, with the max being 32%.

As Catalyst users only deal elemental damage, this tome would be the best DPS augment for them. The Skyward Atlas has similar damage potential, but for a pure DPS build, Lost Prayer takes the first spot.
