Genshin Impact: Pufferfish fishing locations, preferred bait, and uses

Genshin Impact - Pufferfish Fishing Locations

Pufferfish is one of the several types of fish in Genshin Impact. This fish has round and short pelvic fins, a plump body, and a plain face. Judging by its looks, one can say that this fish is slow, dull, and lazy. It’s probably even harmless.

However, this fish is actually far from harmless, as it can suck water into its body and expel it like a cannon! While that might sound silly, the Pufferfish can do so with remarkable accuracy and force, making this harmless-looking fish a first-rate killer in the water.

This article will discuss all the fishing locations of the Pufferfish, as well as how you can catch it and its uses.

Below are some tips for fishing:

  • The Pufferfish will spawn at any in-game time. However, if you can’t find any in the specified locations, try catching the currently available fish and/or adjust the time to a couple of hours.
  • When in Inazuma, it is recommended to bring the 4-star Pyro character Thoma with you, as he gives a 20% chance of a double catch in the region.
  • After clearing a certain fishing location, note that the fish will only respawn in three whole days (real-time, NOT in-game).

What are the uses of Pufferfish

The Pufferfish can be used to purchase Ako’s Sake Vessel, a refinement material for the 4-star polearm The Catch. You can get this item from Kujirai Momiji in Inazuma.

You can also convert the Pufferfish into Fish (cooking ingredient) via cooking/processing.
