Beidou is a 4-star character in Genshin Impact, an Electro character who sails the seven seas as the leader of The Crux. This Claymore-wielder is well-renowned for her defensive utility and her brutal Elemental Burst, which deals tons of Electro damage safely as she can cast it from the backline. Beidou will make a fine captain for your team, so read on to see how to get and level up your very own Beidou.

How to unlock Beidou in Genshin Impact

Beidou is obtainable on the Character Event Wish, Weapon Event Wish, and Standard Banner as a standard 4-star character. As a 4-star character, she occasionally receives rate-ups on the Character Event Wish banner, boosting the odds of her dropping. If you want a Beidou, waiting for this opportunity is highly recommended.
