Genshin Impact 2.8 weapon - This is a Sword

It is fairly common for Genshin Impact players to see a new weapon released alongside a new character or update, as HoYoverse has been regularly expanding both its character and weapon roster since its inception in 2020. Furthermore, several free weapons are included in the Genshin weapon list, which is provided by HoYoverse at random intervals.

The Genshin 2.7 update was recently released, and with version 2.7, fans received Yelan as well as a new weapon, Aqua Simulacra, a 5-star weapon built exclusively for Yelan. The 2.7 update allowed gamers to test the capabilities of this new weapon alongside Yelan.

However, the latest buzz in the community is about a new free weapon that will be available in Genshin Impact 2.8. Reliable leakers just revealed some new Genshin 2.8 leaks about a new free 4-star weapon.

This new 2.8 weapon, however, is not Heizou's signature weapon, as he is rumored to be a catalyst user, who will also be included in the Genshin 2.8 update, as announced by HoYoverse. So, without further ado, let us turn our attention to the new Genshin Impact 2.8 weapon leaks.

Genshin 2.8 free weapon - Sword (This is a Sword)

One of Genshin Impact's distinguishing qualities is its distinctive character design, which has enabled the title to be a worldwide success that keeps growing with each new version.

HoYoverse has created an odd practice of unveiling new characters on the first day of the beta, presumably to avoid leaks. The same can be said about Heizou, who was just revealed as a new Anemo character in the 2.8 private beta.

This article, on the other hand, is more about the new Genshin 2.8 weapon, which was datamined in the 2.8 beta files and is most likely related to Kazuha.

The new Genshin Impact 2.8 sword is at the moment known as "This is a sword," and leakers have hypothesized that the weapon will be named before the completion of the next Kazuha quest, which will be included in the 2.8 release.

Genshin Impact 2.8 "This is a Sword" stats

The upcoming 2.8 sword appears to be linked to Kaedehara Kazuha, as its design is identical to his. The powers of this sword are quite unusual, allowing gamers to easily lock down adversaries. However, it's unclear whether the effect, like the BP Bow, will have crowd control.

The initial figures for the new Genshin Impact 2.8 sword were "broken," with a basic ATK of 542 and a secondary ATK of 41.3 percent. With the current nerf, the sword's base ATK has been reduced to 510, the same as all other 4-star swords with greater secondary values.

Although this mysterious weapon has yet to be given a suitable name, the stats of this new Genshin 2.8 weapon are as follows:

  • Rarity - 4 star
  • Base ATK - 510
  • ATK - 41.3%
  • Passive Rank 1

"When a Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attack hits an opponent, it summons a Hewing Gale, which deals AoE DMG equal to 180% of ATK and increases ATK by 15% for 8 seconds. This effect occurs once every 8 seconds."

Many people anticipated that the 2.8 "This is a Sword" weapon would be a new sword that defied all of the previous weapon's attack-to-sub-stat ratio limitations, however, this is not the case.

Genshin Impact 2.8 "This is a Sword" appearance

This one-of-a-kind sword is visually appealing to Kazuha, but its ATK percent statline does not currently suit his support playstyle.

Those that use Kazuha as a Sub-DPS unit, on the other hand, will undoubtedly want to use this sword on him. It might also be used on other 4-star supporters such as Bennett or Kuki Shinobu.

Unlike some other free weapons obtained through event challenges, a recent leak suggests that the new Genshin 2.8 4-star sword will be one among the completion trophies awarded to players after completing Kazuha's new Chapter I.

The new Genshin 2.8 sword will use ascension materials from all throughout Inazuma and The Chasm, and fans will need quite a few pieces to fully equip it.

According to sources, the 2.8 This is a Sword can't be polished, hence, currently no refining materials are available for it.

Now due to the lack of additional refining resources, it is unknown whether this weapon will receive an event benefit. However, reaching level 90, which grants its wielder 510 Base Attack and a 41.3 percent ATK bonus, should not be too difficult.

We will update the article if the new Genshin Impact 2.8 4-star weapon receives refining material in the live version of the game.

Genshin Impact Heizou signature weapon

We haven't received any new information about Genshin Impact Heizou's signature weapon, although leakers have already stated that Heizou is a 4-star Anemo Catalyst user. Furthermore, the in-game beta files have discovered a new weapon with Heizou's gameplay.

According to prolific leaker @lumie, Jitte will be one of Heizou's weapons, although it will not be his primary weapon. Heizou describes himself as a top investigator, thus it seems to reason that he would use one of this one-of-a-kind weaponry.

However, the leaks on Heizou's weapon have yet to be confirmed from other sources, as leaks have clearly stated that Heizou will be the Catalyst user.

With all said, it is to be remembered that the weapon mentioned in the Genshin 2.8 leaks might not be the new 4-star weapon for Kazuha and could be any new free Genshin 2.8 weapon. Whatever be the case, we do know that a free weapon is planned for Genshin 2.8 update.
