Genshin Impact version 2.8 will introduce the young Inazuman detective, Shikanoin Heizou. He is the first-ever male catalyst user to be added to the fantasy and magical world of Teyvat. In this article, we take a look at some of the best weapon options for Heizou in Genshin Impact.

Which Weapons are Best for DPS Heizou in Genshin Impact?

Best 5-star weapons for Heizou

5-star weapons are great for almost every Genshin Impact character, and Heizou is no exception. To play him as DPS, players can use the following 5-star weapons on him:

1. Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds

Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou (1)
  • Base ATK: 46 / 608
  • Sub stat: Crit Rate 7.2 / 33.1%
  • Passive: Increases Movement SPD by 10%. When in battle, gain an 8% Elemental DMG Bonus every 4s. Max 4 stacks. Lasts until the character falls or leaves combat.

Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds is the best-in-slot weapon for Heizou. The 33.1% Crit Rate from its secondary stat will help players stack Crit DMG and turn Heizou into a powerful DPS. Moreover, the passive is just perfect for Heizou.

Heizou has beautiful normal attack animations, but these animations take a long time. With the weapon passive, Heizou will receive a constant Movement Speed buff of 10%. With this weapon and C1 Heizou, players can boost their Heizou’s ATK speed by 25%.

2. Kagura’s Verity

Genshin Impact 2.5 Kagura Verity
  • Base ATK: 46 / 608
  • Sub stat: Crit DMG 14.4 / 66.2%
  • Passive: Gains the Kagura Dance effect when using an Elemental Skill, causing the Elemental Skill DMG of the character wielding this weapon to increase by 12% for 16s. Max 3 stacks. This character will gain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus when they possess 3 stacks.

Kagura’s Verity is a decent 5-star for players not having Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds. Its juicy 66.2% Crit DMG will bump up Heizou’s DMG by a ton. However, the passive effect doesn’t fit well with Heizou’s kit. Because of his 10-second cooldown on Elemental Skill, Heizou cannot get the max buff from Kagura’s Verity.

Best 4-star Weapons for Heizou

Let’s look at 4-star weapon options available for Heizou in Genshin Impact.

1. Widsith

  • Base ATK: 42 / 510
  • Sub stat: Crit DMG 12 / 55.1%
  • Passive: When a character takes the field, they will gain a random theme song for 10s. This can only occur once every 30s.
    • Recitative: ATK is increased by 60%.
    • Aria: Increases all Elemental DMG by 48%.
    • Interlude: Elemental Mastery is increased by 240.

Widsith is an excellent option for Heizou owners who do not have access to 5-star weapons. Being a Gacha weapon, many Genshin Impact players have access to Widsith with high refinements. Widsith provides a whopping 55.1% Crit DMG and a powerful passive. The only downside of Widsith is the cooldown on its passive effect.

2. Solar Pearl

Genshin Impact Battle Pass
  • Base ATK: 42 / 510
  • Sub stat: Crit Rate 6 / 27.6%
  • Passive: Normal Attack hits increase Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG by 20% for 6s. Likewise, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst hits increase Normal Attack DMG by 20% for 6s.

Solar Pearl comes with Crit Rate sub stat but is a Battle pass only weapon in Genshin Impact. Those with Solar Pearl can use it on their Heizou to hit big damage numbers. Players can easily use Solar Pearl’s passive effect because Heizou uses his entire kit to deal damage.

Heizou is an Anemo DPS unit in Genshin Impact. Players should opt for weapons with Crit DMG and Crit Rate sub-stats to play him as the main DPS. Players can also go with weapons having ATK% sub stat or even Elemental Mastery sub stat for Electro-charge teams.
