While players cannot actually break down an individual weapon for materials themselves, there is a way for players to use these older weapons to make specific stronger weapons. All the player has to do is duplicates of the weapon they have. Players can fuse the duplicate weapon into another one to make it stronger. This will break down the weapon and the materials within will go into the second weapon. Duplicates happen when players wish often for weapons and characters.
Genshin Impact shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. The game has not only been a hit in eastern regions of the world, but western fans have jumped on board to massive praise. Another big story update is scheduled to release before the end of the year. Although, it can be a bit frustrating for players who have invested hundreds of dollars into the game and have not received any 5-star characters. It is completely up to chance and is designed to funnel as much money as possible out of their players. Only time will tell if they will make it easier to get higher tier characters.
