Rust – How to get, Ascension, stats, and who can use it in Genshin Impact

This weapon is a great pick for Normal Attack-based damage dealers.

Genshin Impact's Rust is a four-star bow with a unique value proposition: it increases the wielder's Normal Attack damage while sacrificing part of their Charged Attack damage. Despite its diminishing returns, Rust offers plenty of value for bow users who rely heavily on Normal Attacks to obliterate enemies.

How to get Rust in Genshin Impact

Rust is a standard banner weapon, which means you can pull for it on the Wanderlust Invocation and all limited character and weapon banners. However, it's sometimes on rate-up in the Epitome Invocation banner, which you can pull on using Primogems and Intertwined Fates. Being a four-star weapon, you can't chart an Epitomized Path for Rust. Obtaining it comes down to pure luck.

Genshin Impact Rust stats

  • Base Attack: 42 to 510

  • Passive: Rapid Firing
    • Increases Normal Attack damage by 40/50/60/70/80 percent but decreases Charged Attack damage by 10 percent.
