There are many characters for players to obtain and master in Genshin Impact, but which ones can you add to your party for free? Here’s a breakdown of all the free characters in Genshin Impact and how you can obtain them.
It can be costly to collect all of Genshin Impact’s characters, especially if you’re aiming to add the game’s 5-stars to your roster. There’s no guarantee that you’ll get the characters you want, even if you secure plenty of Primogems.
Fortunately, there are few characters that can be unlocked for free without having to spend a lot of Acquainted or Intertwined Fates. Whether you’re just beginning your journey in Teyvat, or are just wondering who you can use for free, here’s everything you need to know about all the free characters currently available in Genshin Impact.
All free characters in Genshin Impact
There are currently seven free characters that a player can obtain in Teyvat without spending a thing, and that includes one of Genshin Impact’s best characters, Xiangling. These 4-star characters can also be purchased from Paimon’s Bargains, but you’ll need to wait until they enter the current rotation.
Without further ado, here are all of the characters you can claim for free and the requirements needed to unlock them all.
|4-star||Pyro||Bow||Complete the Quest Wind-Riding Knight.|
|4-star||Cryo||Sword||Complete the Quest Crash Course.|
|4-star||Electro||Catalyst||Complete the Quest Sparks Amongst the Pages.|
