As for how players will be able to snag these new weapons, each one is acquired differently. The Engulfing Lightning polearm is considered to be the Raiden Shogun’s ideal weapon and as such is on the Event Wish banner releasing at the start of Version 2.1. The fish claymore can be obtained via the Moonlight Merriment Event Shop, while “The Catch” is tied to the new fishing activity coming soon to Genshin Impact. Last but not least, Aloy’s Predator bow is available as a PlayStation console exclusive for those that login to Genshin Impact at any point after the Version 2.1 update and prior to the Version 2.3 update. The bow can technically be used on any platform, though the Strong Strike weapon trait is only active when playing on PlayStation.
Genshin Impact is currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, and Android & iOS devices. Version 2.1 is slated to release on September 1st, 2021.
