Claymores in Genshin Impact is a weapon category. Claymores are heavy weapons that are usually held with two hands, it is a larger variation of the regular sword that can deal with heavy and deadly damage even though it restricts the player's movements. Not all playable characters can equip a claymore, but instead, only certain characters specialize in using the weapon in battle. Claymores 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 claymores.

How to use Claymores in Genshin Impact? 

The Claymore is a much larger weapon type that deals higher damage than the other melee weapon types. It takes a longer time to deal their attacks, but each swing and attack will cause more damage. This is especially effective when dealing with tough objects such as Rocks in the environment and Geo. Characters can use their claymore on rock walls to break them and reveal hidden loot and areas, 

Like other weapons they have a regular attack and a their ultimate charge attack that requires a waiting period before dealing a larger, more damaging claymore smash. These regular attacks have a big swing radius and does not deal as quick as other melee weapons due to their size and weight. Their swing attacks can still be chained back to back to create a faster combat sequnce. Using charge attacks will also temporarily drain a character stamina. As characters charge their attacks, they swill start to rotate and swing. This attack sequence duration ends with a last finishing swing at the end of the stamina meter.
