Genshin Impact: New 5-star bow leaked; Ganyu rerun is almost confirmed

new 5-star bow featured

Among the huge amount of leaks regarding characters and future events for the 2.2 update of Genshin Impact, we had a leak regarding a new weapon, as usual. This new weapon is a 5-star bow, and its mere existence is almost a confirmation for one of the most anticipated reruns of the game.

The new weapon, which still doesn’t have an official name, has everything that Ganyu needs, and will probably be her new best weapon. This is just like the 1.5 version when a new 5-star bow was introduced alongside Venti’s rerun, and said bow was conveniently perfect for him.

Alongside the huge attack and the Critical Rate substats, the bow has an easy-to-stack, easy-to-maintain passive. This is perfect not only for Ganyu, but almost every bow user in the game. Childe could get even higher numbers on his Burst with this bow, for example.

But why the focus on her? Because this is how she looks equipped with it:

It’s almost impossible to not believe that it was literally made for her. Signature weapons for specific characters are pretty common nowadays, like Hu Tao and Staff of Homa, Eula and Song of Broken Pines and Baal and Engulfing Lightning. They just end up being good for other characters too.

This also goes along with Ubatcha’s previous leak about Ganyu having a rerun. He also mentioned again the possibility of we having another rerun-only version:

While this is true or not, we’ll need to wait for further information, especially from miHoYo, who will probably make a giant announcement about Ganyu’s return. The new bow should be coming alongside her rerun banner during the next update as one of the featured weapons.
