There are so many Genshin Impact characters by now that it’s hard to keep track of them all – and while most offer some benefit or advantage under different circumstances, a few of them are simply so strong that they stand out. The best DPS characters in Genshin Impact not only carry you through the story portions of the game, but also make your runs through the Abyss easy as pie.

Naturally, no character in Genshin Impact fights alone, as the action RPG always has you use four units as a team. Your Main DPS will need Support and Sub DPS characters to assist them, but those mainly depend on which Main DPS you choose. This makes them the cornerstone of each Genshin Impact team.

To make things a bit less complicated for you when choosing which team to build up, we’ve listed the best DPS characters in Genshin Impact for all elements in this guide.
