Bows in Genshin Impact is a weapon category. The bow is mainly used for hunting targets from afar, allowing the player to inflict damage and poke enemies from afar while maintaining a safe distance, although it is not as strong as the other weapons, the bow is still a force to be reckoned with since it can deliver fast and continuous attacks that can overwhelm enemies. Not all playable characters can equip the bow, but instead, only certain characters specialize in using the weapon in battle. Bows can be obtained as loot, acquired as a reward for completing Quests and Events, given by certain characters or NPCs, purchased from Merchants, and crafted. This page covers a list of bows.
