Genshin Impact’s new 5-star character Ganyu is incredibly strong, and with the addition of a newly discovered bug, he has become absolutely unstoppable.
The user of Reddit, CryyoticFate, shared a video of the bug in action and explained how to activate it. Simply put, the bug generates the effect of the sixth constellation Ganyu, allowing it to instantly place and fire a fully charged arrow after using its elemental ability. Usually this is only good for one shot fired in 30 seconds, but by swapping characters at the exact moment you use their ability, you can apparently unlock infinite charged instant shots.
This is the first time we’ve heard of this bug, and given its disastrous balancing implications, it’s likely to be fixed very soon. Ganyu can already raze most of the content in Genshin Impact, but this bug allows true god mode. This honestly feels like a cheat code from an old Grand Theft Auto. Weekly bosses, world bosses, Spiral Abyss stages – nothing stands a chance against fully automatic Ganyu.
The good news is that this bug is seemingly unique to the sixth constellation Ganyu, which means that only people who have obtained seven Ganyus can activate it. It can cost upwards of $ 1,500 to get all six constellations on a 5-star character, so very few people will be able to use this. The best news is that since this bug affects a gacha character, MiHoYo will likely give 100 Primogems as compensation when fixed.
