Genshin Impact: Tighnari Best Weapons

Build Guide Best Weapons
Team Compositions Constellation Guide

Since Tighnari must trigger Spread reaction to boost his DPS in Genshin Impact, it’s no surprise that his weapon should have Elemental Mastery stat. Additionally, considering Spread can crit, Critical Rate and Critical DMG are both crucial for the Forest Ranger.

However, despite benefiting greatly from Elemental Mastery, ATK is still a good stat for Tighnari. All this enlarges the tier list of Tighnari best weapons in Genshin Impact, where players can consider many available options.

1/12 Hunter’s Path

Base ATK 542
Sub-Stat 44.1% Crit Rate
Passive Gain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. Obtain the Tireless Hunt effect after hitting an opponent with a Charged Attack. This effect increases Charged Attack DMG by 160% of Elemental Mastery. This effect will be removed after 12 Charged Attacks or 10s. Only 1 instance of Tireless Hunt can be gained every 12s.

Low base ATK from Hunter’s Path is not an issue for Tighnari since he also works with Elemental Mastery (EM). Considering this S tier bow also increases Charged Attack damage based on Elemental Mastery, EM is better for his hourglass compared to ATK.

2/12 Polar Star

Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 33.1% Crit Rate
Passive Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG increased by 12%. After a Normal Attack, Charged Attack, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst hits an opponent, 1 stack of Ashen Nightstar will be gained for 12s. When 1/2/3/4 stacks of Ashen Nightstar are present, ATK is increased by 10/20/30/48%. The stack of Ashen Nightstar created by the Normal Attack, Charged Attack, Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst will be counted independently of the others.

Compared to Hunter’s Path, Polar Star has larger base ATK and lower Crit Rate sub-stat. This S tier bow is also great for its passive, where Tighnari can easily obtain the stacks.

3/12 Aqua Simulacra

Base ATK 542
Sub-Stat 88.2% Crit DMG
Passive HP is increased by 16%. When there are opponents nearby, the DMG dealt by the wielder of this weapon is increased by 20%. This will take effect whether the character is on-field or not.

Aqua Simulacra also ranks in the S tier for the best Tighnari weapon in Genshin Impact. Like Hunter’s Path, it has a low base ATK, but a massive Crit DMG. Its passive is great for any DPS.

4/12 Thundering Pulse

Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 66.2% Crit DMG
Passive Increases ATK by 20% and grants the might of the Thunder Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, the Thunder Emblem increases Normal Attack DMG by 12/24/40%. The character will obtain 1 stack of Thunder Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Skill (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.

Thundering Pulse’s passive is almost useless for Tighnari, but this bow is still a great stat stick, ranking in the S- tier.

5/12 Skyward Harp

Base ATK 674
Sub-Stat 22.1% Crit Rate
Passive Increases Crit DMG by 20%. Hits have a 60% chance to inflict a small AoE attack, dealing 125% Physical ATK DMG. Can only occur once every 4s.

Skyward Harp is on par with Thundering Pulse in terms of performance for Tighnari weapon in Genshin Impact, so it also ranks in the S- tier.

6/12 Slingshot

Base ATK 354
Sub-Stat 31.2% Crit Rate
R5 Passive If a Normal or Charged Attack hits a target within 0.3s of being fired, increases DMG by 60%. Otherwise, decreases DMG by 10%.

Slingshot may be a 3-star equipment, but since Tighnari isn’t badly harmed by its low base ATK, this bow still ranks in the A+ tier.

7/12 Amos’ Bow

Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 49.6% ATK
Passive Increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 12%. After a Normal or Charged Attack is fired, DMG dealt increases by a further 8% every 0.1 seconds the arrow is in the air for up to 5 times.

Amos’ Bow sadly also ranks in the A+ tier for Tighnari weapon in Genshin Impact. Its passive is a little unstable, so its performance varies based on it.

8/12 Prototype Crescent

Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 41.3% ATK
R5 Passive Charged Attack hits on weak points increase Movement SPD by 10% and ATK by 72% for 10s.

Assuming players can use its passive effectively, Prototype Crescent is one of the best F2P weapon for Tighnari, ranking in the A tier.

9/12 Blackcliff Warbow

Base ATK 565
Sub-Stat 36.8% Crit DMG
R5 Passive After defeating an opponent, ATK is increased by 24% for 30s. This effect has a maximum of 3 stacks, and the duration of each stack is independent of the others.

Blackcliff Warbow is decent for its Crit DMG sub-stat, but its passive is unstable, so it places in the A- tier. Additionally, since Tighnari is a quick-swap character, it can be tough to align the bow’s buff duration.

10/12 The Viridescent Hunt

Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 27.6% Crit Rate
Passive Upon hit, Normal and Aimed Shot Attacks have a 50% chance to generate a Cyclone, which will continuously attract surrounding opponents, dealing 40% of ATK as DMG to these opponents every 0.5s for 4s. This effect can only occur once every 14.

Battle Pass weapon in Genshin Impact is always great thanks to its Crit Rate sub-stat, however, some of its passives are more niche than others. Viridescent Hunt, for instance, has a passive that only activates upon Normal and Aimed hit, which means it’s not perfect for many bow sub-DPS. Fortunately, the Forest Ranger can benefit from this weapon just fine. Viridescent Hunt ranks in the A- tier for Tighnari.

11/12 Hamayumi

Base ATK 454
Sub-Stat 55.1% ATK
R5 Passive Increases Normal Attack DMG by 32% and Charged Attack DMG by 24%. When the equipping character’s Energy reaches 100%, this effect is increased by 100%.

Hamayumi is a forgeable bow, so it’s amazing for F2P players. Considering his Burst only cost 40 Energy, maximizing the A- tier weapon’s passive is not hard to do.

12/12 Windblume Ode

Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 165 Elemental Mastery
R5 Passive After using an Elemental Skill, receive a boon from the ancient wish of the Windblume, increasing ATK by 32% for 6s.

Windblume Ode is obtainable from a limited event, so only players who own it can use this F2P bow for Tighnari weapon in Genshin Impact. Both its Elemental Mastery sub-stat and ATK buff from its passive are handy for the Forest Ranger, so it ranks in the A- tier.
