Catalysts in Genshin Impact is a weapon category. The catalyst is a weapon that conjures basic elemental magical attacks, this weapon is both deadly and can be utilized in any range. Not all playable characters can equip a catalyst, but instead, only certain characters specialize in using the weapon in battle. Catalysts 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 catalysts.

How to use Catalysts in Genshin Impact

 Catalysts fall into a different kind of weapon category than the other regular melee and ranged weapons. These deal elemental damage and deal magical attacks rather than a physical attack. The casted damage type depends on which character has it equipped and the Vision they are dealt, which grants a character with elemental abilities. In this case, a character's element will be important to note. Even Catalyst users have two types of attacks. These attacks are more diverse from character to character because of their organic nature. These attacks more commonly seen like elemental orbs or beams, and when charged may have a larger area of attack. Its radius is seen when the attack is dealt.
