Wondering how you can get free characters in Genshin Impact? Here’s our guide on all of the free characters in Genshin Impact and how to get them so you can save Primogems.

In Genshin Impact, your journey and exploration across Teyvat can be far more riveting when you’ve got an impressive array of characters at your disposal.

Genshin Impact certainly places a lot of emphases and focus on its vibrant cast. Every character is unique, with their own abilities and backstories that set them apart from the crowd. And who doesn’t love the thrill of adding a new Genshin Impact character to their squad? Especially when it’s for free.

The game generously provides opportunities for players to acquire new characters at zero cost. Instead of trying your luck with the gacha system, we’re here to unveil how you can expand your roster without spending a single Primogem in Genshin Impact.

Above are the seven characters that players can earn for free in Genshin Impact. However, it’s important to note that these characters can also be bought from Paimon’s Bargains, but depending on which character you want, you’ll have to wait for them to enter the store’s rotation.

You can also get free characters from limited-time events, as many characters such as Xiangling, Yun Jin, and Barbara have also been available for free through these events. Players will be asked to complete a specific quest or seasonal activity in order to unlock a character for free during a limited-time event, so keep an eye out for them.

Well, there you have it, that’s every free Genshin Impact character. For more guides on the gacha game, check out our other pieces below:
