Genshin Impact features plenty of characters for players to unlock and master, but which ones can you obtain for free? 

Collecting all of Genshin Impact’s characters can be a costly quest, especially if you’re aiming to add the game’s 5-stars to your roster. In fact, even if you secure plenty of Primogems, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the characters you want. This is especially true given that Genshin Impact currently features a whopping 41 playable characters.

Fortunately, there are few free characters that you can obtain without breaking the bank or spending loads of Acquainted Fates or Intertwined Fates. Whether you’re just starting out on your Genshin Impact adventure or just wondering which characters you can obtain for free, then we have you covered.
