Genshin Impact players are continually finding new and exciting ways to make their travels across Teyvat easier. After all, traversing miHoYo’s vast open-world can take a long time. Find out how you can climb forever with this handy stamina trick.

There’s nothing worse in Genshin Impact than climbing up a cliff in order to reach the treasures above, only to find that your energy is about to run out. As you hurtle towards the ground, you’re simply left with the bitter realization that you’ll need to upgrade your stamina bar. Unfortunately, securing all of the game’s Anemoculus and Geoculus can take a long time, especially if you’ve yet to unlock the entire map. 

Even if you do manage to upgrade your stamina bar, climbing up Genshin Impact’s tallest cliffs can prove tricky. However, Genshin Impact’s craftiest players have found a unique way to scale these monolithic rocks without spending hours searching for stamina-boosting trinkets. Find out how you can use this trick yourself by using our handy guide below.

How to sprint up cliffs in Genshin Impact

While Genshin Impact may share a lot of similarities to Breath of the Wild, it does feature enough differences that help to distinguish it from Nintendo’s hit Zelda series. However, one feature that has been borrowed is that of the game’s climbing mechanic. One of the best features from BotW was the ability to climb literally anything, so it makes sense that miHoYo would want to add this game-changing mechanic to their own open-world. 

Climbing is a lot more forgiving in Genshin Impact as rainy weather has no bearing on your progression to the lofty heights above. Of course, that doesn’t stop the frustrations of watching your stamina bar completely deplete just as your about to reach the top. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll often be sent plummeting towards the ground below with nothing but the hard ground to break your fall. 

However, one clever Genshin Impact player has found a way you can climb up cliffs without using any stamina at all. In order to do this trick, you’ll first need to run around until you’ve completely depleted your character’s stamina bar. Once you have no more stamina remaining, simply begin to bunny hop towards the cliff you wish to scale. 

You can find out how to bunny hop with our handy guide right here, so make sure you nail this speed-enhancing mechanic before attempting this. If you’ve done the bunny hop correctly, your character will ascend the cliff and continuously climb as long as you keep jumping. It can take a few attempts to get the timing down, but if you follow this guide, you’ll be able to make it to the summit incredibly quickly. 

It’s important to note that this technique only works on cliffs that have a gradient to them. If you wish to climb any cliffs that have a 90° angle, then you’ll need to rely on the game’s ordinary climbing mechanic. 


Be sure to use this nifty trick in Genshin Impact whenever you go mountain climbing. If you want to level up the rest of your Genshin Impact gameplay, then be sure to check out our other tips guides.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
