Free Genshin Characters: Every Free Character in Genshin Impact and How to Get Them

Stay fiscal this summer and snag these free characters

by Caleb Stultz


Trying to get all of the characters in Genshin Impact can be a very costly task. Because of that, some people may only want to keep free in free-to-play in Genshin Impact.

Trying to snag the game’s 5-star characters can even break the bank because of how much money it takes to buy some characters in the game. With 48 playable characters as of now, buying them all out is nearly impossible.

With that in mind, though, out of those 48 characters, there are a few that are free without spending Acquainted or Intertwined Fates.

Whether you have just started Genshin Impact or have been playing for a while and are looking for any new characters to earn without spending a dollar, here is every free character in Genshin Impact and how to get them.

Every Free Character in Genshin Impact and How to Get Them

There are currently seven free Genshin Impact characters that players can earn for free spending no money. These 4-star characters are not necessarily as good in terms of their abilities.

But the tradeoff of staying fiscal is definitely worth it for those Summer Sale-style gamers. Some characters that are on this list are only available during certain rotations. So make sure to play Genshin Impact at the right times to earn these characters.

Amber 4-star Pyro Bow Complete the Quest Wind-Riding Knight.
