Genshin Impact: Beidou build, weapons and artifact sets

Genshin Impact: Beidou build, weapons and artifact sets

If you're looking to power-up your Beidou here is our complete guide from artifacts to main stats and weapons.

Let it be said: Beidou is not one of the best characters in Genshin Impact. On the one hand because other DPS will be far superior to her, but also because this Claymore wielder is quite difficult to play. Indeed, the offensive character of Beidou rests above all on her counter-attack. If the counter is carefully timed , it will be a great source of damage later on. Otherwise, your character will lose a lot of its usefulness. In the hands of a good player, however, Beidou can be very useful, in particular thanks to its good resilience and its offtank gameplay.

To play alongside:


To look for interesting synergies with Beidou, it is better to turn to the Hydro characters. In particular, we can use Beidou's third skill ( Storm Break ) to create chain electrocutions thanks to Barbara.


Diona is a very good support for Beidou. It allows him to have access to the superconduction reaction but also to have a good reserve of energy since Diona is an energy battery.

Of course, these characters are only examples and do not constitute all the playable characters with Beidou but just a small representation of what you can do. Your imagination will allow you to create your own teams and test according to your preferences.
