HoYoverse revealed yet another upcoming character for Honkai: Star Rail update 2.2 in the form of Boothill, who is a completely unknown entity for players at this point – we’ve not met him in the story or heard anyone talking about him, though that might change over the course of 2.1.

Boothill is a 5-Star character dealing Physical Damage and following the Path of The Hunt, which marks him out as a damage dealer specializing in bringing down single targets. If you hadn’t guessed it yet from his striking looks, he’s supposed to be a cyborg cowboy – he’s got the full Wild West package with revolvers, a lasso, and everything else.

His English voice actor is Andrew Russell, who’s had roles in titles like Lost Ark, Diablo 4, and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

Here’s the official lore tidbit about Boothill that accompanied the announcement:

"So, here's the thing: someone went and tinkered with my Synesthesia Beacon, so now, all you folks can hear is me and those adorable little troublemakers talkin' like this... cutie, cutie, cutie. Looky here, see?"

A cyborg cowboy drifting among the stars. Extremely optimistic and unrestrained.

He is a member of the Galaxy Rangers who swore to punish the wretched by any and all means… His flamboyant and brash actions were all to draw the attention of the Interastral Peace Corporation — the target of his revenge.

Boothill will become playable alongside Robin, who has the same Damage Type as the space cowboy.

However, the wait for both of them will require some patience: Update 2.1 is up for launch first and we’ll get all the details about that in the upcoming version 2.1 livestream. It’ll feature the trio of Acheron, Aventurine, and Gallagher as new characters.
