The Serpent Spine is a 4-star Claymore weapon in Genshin Impact that’s unfortunately only available to players who pay. More specifically, you’ll need to purchase the Battle Pass to unlock this weapon. The weapon is recommended for offensively-oriented DPS characters.

To obtain The Serpent Spine, purchase the Battle Pass and level it up to Level 30. Once you hit Level 30, you’ll have the option to choose one of five battle pass weapons. There are five battle pass weapons, one for each weapon type.

You can level up your Battle Pass by completing daily, weekly, and special missions. You need 1,000 EXP to level up once in the Battle Pass, which you can accomplish in about three or four weeks if you’re able to keep up with the missions.

Serpent Spine’s Stats

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • ATK: 42 – 510
  • Secondary Stat: Crit Rate
  • Secondary Stat Levels: 6% – 27.6%
  • Passive: Wavesplitter: Every 4s a character is on the field, they will deal 6% more DMG and take 3% more DMG. This effect has a maximum of 5 stacks and will not be reset if the character leaves the field, but will be reduced by 1 stack when the character takes DMG.

Is the Serpent Spine any good?

The Serpent Spine is the best 4-star Claymore for many DPS Claymore characters due to a relatively high Attack stat, Crit Rate percentage, and strong passive. There aren’t many other Claymores that provide the same utility, aside from the Blackcliff Slasher.

The Serpent Spine is highly recommended for all Claymore characters when you do not have a requisite 5-star weapon. Diluc, Razor, Beidou, Chongyun, Eula, and a DPS Noelle use the Serpent Spine to great effect.

In other words, if you have the Battle Pass and lots of Claymore DPS, the Serpent Spine should be your go-to purchase.
