The Calamity Queller is a new 5-star weapon designed specifically for the upcoming character, Shenhe. The weapon can boost a character’s Base ATK stat by a significant margin, while also increasing elemental damage at the same time.

The Calamity Queller is a limited featured weapon, and will only appear during the first half of Version 2.4’s limited featured weapon banners. After the banner ends, the Calamity Queller will become unavailable until it is rerun during a subsequent banner.

Is the Calamity Queller any good?

The Calamity Queller is shaping up to be a solid 5-star weapon, although it’s questionable whether or not it’s worth your Primogems. For starters, if you plan on pulling for Shenhe and making her as strong as possible, the Calamity Queller will likely be her best-in-slot. If you have the Primogems, you can consider pulling this weapon for her.

Otherwise, there are other more affordable options for other Polearm characters. Characters like Xiangling, Raiden Shogun, and other Polearm characters can feasibly use this weapon. However, both listed characters above will likely perform on a similar level with a free-to-play weapon, The Catch.

Therefore, it’s not recommended to pull this weapon specifically for other Polearm characters. That being said, if you do have this weapon, it will still be a solid option for your offensive Polearms.
