Weapons are a big a part of Genshin Impact given that they have a great effect on every characters' strength on the battlefield. Developer Hoyoverse keeps introducing one or two weapons each update after the recently added Haran Geppaku Futsu, it seems like players will have the option to get two new bows.
Genshin Impact has already confirmed the appearance of two new characters within the upcoming update 2.7 – Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. Both of these characters are required to reach within the same update, however they will likely be split into two separate banners. In addition, this update looks to become bringing new weapons.
One of the game's most credible leakers named Ubatcha1 has revealed a brand new Genshin Impact weapon for the upcoming update 2.7. The new five-star bow is known as Aqua Simulacra and can function as the signature weapon for the new character Yelan. Based on the leak, the weapon may have the following stats:
- Weapon Type: Bow
- Rarity: Five-star
- Base Attack: 44-542
- Secondary Stat (Crit Rate): 19.2-88.2
- Passive: Increases HP by 16-32%. If there are no opponents close to the weapon holder, the harm is increased by 20-40%. This passive will remain active even if the character leaves the field.
Previous Genshin Impact leaks have previously revealed a big portion of Yelan's whole kit. Her damage output will scale with HP which means that this weapon is a perfect fit for Yelan due to its passive. The current beta leaks reveal that she'll probably be considered a new Hydro support character. With regards to the rarity, she has recently been confirmed to be a five-star character.
This weapon is also a great fit for Fischl, particularly if she's all six of her constellations unlocked. However, Fischl and Razor would be the two characters that rarely get featured on the limited banner which means that players need to acquire them whenever there is a chance to do so. Another potential character for this weapon is Venti who's a part of the current Genshin Impact 2.6 double banner alongside new character Kamisato Ayato.
Aqua Simulacra won't be the only weapon that will arrive in the upcoming update. Exactly the same leaker has previously revealed another four-star bow named Fading Twilight that will apparently be obtainable free of charge by finishing a few quests. Both of these weapons are quite flexible since they may be used on DPS, sub-DPS, and support characters.
Genshin Impact is now on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
