Swords in Genshin Impact is a weapon category. Swords are light and are usually held with one hand, it is a balanced weapon that is capable of inflicting light and fast attacks and a decent amount of damage.

Its normal attack can chain up to 5 chain attacks, while a charged attack, takes a moment longer to charge the attack in order to deal a more powerful damaging attack.

They can result in swinging, uppercut slash,  and lunging and can potentially throw enemies back forcing a space between the character who dealt the charge attack dnd the opponent.
