A new Genshin Impact leak has revealed gameplay of the upcoming Raiden Shogun weekly boss fight, giving players a sneak peek at her new look and abilities. 

There have been rumors that Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun will return as a weekly boss fight in the game’s 2.5 update, but a new gameplay leak has seemingly confirmed this. Raiden Shogun was originally released as part of the 2.1 update, and since then, the Inazuma Electro Archon has proven incredibly popular amongst players.

While travelers are currently busy enjoying the 2.4 update, the 2.5 beta has led to some rather exciting news. Aside from the various Yae Miko leaks and rumblings of a Raiden Shogun banner rerun, a number of Genshin Impact leakers have uncovered gameplay of a new boss fight with the Electro Archon.

The Raiden Shogun weekly boss fight certainly looks tough.

While players have famously been able to duel Raiden Shogun during The Omnipresent God Archon quest, Ei has yet to receive her very own weekly boss fight. However, according to renowned Genshin Impact leaker, @Ubatcha1, this will change in 2.5.

In fact, it’s rumored that both Ayato and Yae will utilize Raiden Shogun’s item drops. While the latter is mere speculation, a new leak from Genshin Mains has now seemingly showcased how Raiden Shogun will perform during the new weekly boss fight. 

The footage is only 18-seconds long, but it does give us a decent look at how the Electro Archon will utilize her abilities in combat. Unlike her previous encounter, Raiden Shogun can be seen floating above the ground in a mechanical suit, which she uses to wield her Musou no Hitotachi.

At one point, Ei even uses her Eye of Stormy Judgment to unleash a gigantic katana, slicing through everything on the screen. After a brief pause, a crack appears on the screen and Zhongli’s health bar is cut down to zero. Ei then carefully sheathes and unsheathes her katana before sending out a huge Electro attack. 

Of course, like all Genshin Impact leaks, this footage should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, miHoYo could change her moveset before her official release.
