Genshin Impact: Aloy’s Weapons Guide

Aloy, as the protagonist of Horizon Zero Dawn, is one character currently available to players in the world of Genshin Impact. Aloy is a 5-star cryo archer with a unique set of abilities all his own, making him an indispensable, versatile support and powerful supplementary character on the team. 

Genshin Impact players have been eagerly expecting its introduction, as Aloy is the first and only Genshin Impact character to date that has been given to players for free, even though it can’t get any Constellations.

Although Aloy is not one of the strongest or most popular characters in Genshin Impact, Aloy still has a clear role, and can find a position in the team as a main DPS or auxiliary DPS of Cryo

Aloy also has a lot of options in terms of weapons, including 4-star and 5-star weapons, each with distinct advantages and disadvantages. Players can choose different weapons for Aloy according to their game preferences and usage habits, while knowing which weapons are most suitable for Aloy.

Predator Bow

Predator Bow is one of Aloy’s signature weapons, and was available from PlayStation from patch 2.1 to patch 2.3. Due to platform restrictions, many Genshin Impact players on other platforms cannot get Predator Bow unless they use the cross-save method.

However, if you gained Predator Bow on PC or mobile, you may not activate its special effects, as this is exclusive to PlayStation users. Players who haven’t got Predator Bow don’t need to worry too much, because there are better 4-star or 5-star weapons for you to choose from in the game.

King's Squire Bow

King's Squire Bow is usually one of the favorite weapons of F2P players, as it is one of the few craftable weapons in Genshin Impact. For some players who want to use Aloy as the secondary DPS and main DPS in the team, King's Squire Bow will be a very suitable weapon. 

For some players who haven't found much during the expedition, Prototype Crescent may be a F2P craftable weapon for you. Its main function and secondary attributes are the same as Predator Bow, but it will have a different use effect. It can increase Aloy's speed and damage output again after Aloy hits the enemy, and it can get twice the result with half the effort when used properly.

Polar Star

For bow users who are secondary DPS and primary DPS in a team and prefer Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst, Polar Star is your weapon of choice. You'll see the full potential of this weapon at 4-Stacks. However, even with 2-Stacks, the damage output that Polar Star brings to enemies is enormous. 

However, before using Polar Star, players need Build Up Stacks to maximize the effect of the weapon. Therefore, if the player does not have the necessary conditions to activate Polar Star, it is not recommended to choose Polar Star first compared to other weapons.


For some secondary DPS characters who pursue strong output and rely heavily on Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst, Stringless is usually one of the most popular weapons in Genshin Impact. Stringless is a great fit for characters who are used to using Elemental reactions, and is easily accessible to players in gacha pulls.

On top of that, Stringless doesn't have to be active to be effective, making this weapon ideal for players who want to use Aloy for Elemental reactions. Even though Stringless is at Refinement Level 1, it provides players with pretty good damage output.

Skyward Harp

Skyward Harp is one of the most commonly used weapons for every bow character. Although compared to Polar Star, Crit Rate of its skill attribute is not high, but its basic ATK attack attribute and the additional effect of Critical Damage are very brilliant

Skyward Harp isn’t a weapon that relies solely on Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst. It continuously improved the additional effects of Skyward Harp and Crit DMG with the upgrade of the character. Therefore, he has also become one of the best choices for DPS Aloy players.

Thundering Pulse

Thundering Pulse is usually associated with Yoimiya by players. But if players want to use Thundering Pulse as Aloy’s main damage output weapon, it can also be one of Aloy’s best Bow choices.

Thundering Pulse needs Build Up Stacks to reach its full potential, but Aloy is usually easy to Build Up Stacks as the main DPS on the team. 

Because Thundering Pulse’s main stat is Crit DMG, and Aloy as a Cryo character will usually get Crit Rate easily when using Cryo Resonance skill. Therefore, Thundering Pulse can also use its own attributes and effects to increase its damage output for Aloy.

I believe players can choose the most suitable weapon for Aloy according to their usage habits after understanding. If you also want to try the role of Aloy, you can experience it by obtaining a suitable Genshin Impact Account. I hope you can enjoy the game.
