Genshin Impact is getting a new five-star limited weapon for Version 2.3, releasing alongside the highly anticipated Geo character, Arataki Itto. The Redhorn Stonethresher in Genshin Impact is a claymore designed to work with characters who scale off of DEF, like Itto or Noelle. As such, if you have access to Geo characters who enjoy the DEF boost this weapon provides, you’ll want to pull for this weapon if possible.

As of this writing, the official method of obtaining this has yet to be officially revealed. It’s almost certain, however, that this will be a limited five-star banner weapon, which means you’ll have to go through the weapons banner to obtain this one.

Is the Redhorn Stonethresher any good?

The Redhorn Stonethresher is a five-star weapon with Crit DMG%, so it’s likely useful for most Claymore users as a pure stat stick. However, this weapon will fit best on characters such as Itto and Noelle due to their scaling off of DEF.

In that sense, the Stonethresher provides amazing stats, and benefits both characters who use normal attacks to deal damage. Noelle, in particular, will thrive with this weapon at Constellation 6, due to her DEF being converted to ATK. And Itto’s kit is full of DEF scalings, so he’ll definitely appreciate the weapon.
