One of the important aspects of your progression in Genshin Impact is getting all the right materials to upgrade your characters and weapons. That was as true when the game first came out as it is now with the 3.0 update. As you explore the new Sumeru region, keep an eye out for all the new resources you might need. Yet some resources can be scarce or difficult to farm. Some require you to kill specific mobs to have a chance to get them. That becomes more true the further you progress in the game. For instance, Chaos Bolts are needed for weapon upgrades but drop from only two types of mobs in the game. So if you are wondering how to get Chaos Bolts in Genshin Impact, this guide is for you.

Chaos Bolts as loot drops

Chaos Bolts drop as possible loot from only two Elite enemies. They are both part of the Ruin Drake type. Furthermore, they will only drop from those enemies if they are Level 60+. Those Ruin Drakes are:
