Genshin Impact 4.6 Leaks Hint At A Unique Weapon For Arlecchino


  • Genshin Impact’s 4.6 leaks reveal an exclusive weapon for Arlecchino with a special animation for her Charged Attack.
  • The weapon may be a commercial tactic to incentivize players to pull for both Arlecchino and her signature weapon.
  • The leaks should be taken with caution, as the weapon’s animation may be updated or the information could be inaccurate.



New Genshin Impact 4.6 leaks are hinting at what may be an exclusive weapon for Arlecchino, establishing a first of its type in the action RPG. The game is currently in the final portion of Version 4.4 and is moving toward Version 4.5, which is expected to arrive in mid-March. In fact, all the details, including characters, events, and updates in Genshin Impact 4.5 have been revealed through its respective livestream. Nevertheless, Version 4.6 is already being plagued by leaks, including a few regarding the highly anticipated Arlecchino.

According to a new piece of information about Version 4.6, obtained by the leaker known as Uncle K, shared by the leaker HXG, and reshared by a user on Reddit, Arlecchino’s signature polearm will have a special animation, triggered by her Charged Attack. As mentioned in the leak, the lance will transform into a scythe when she uses that specific type of attack. This, however, seems to be exclusive to Arlecchino. The leaks highlight that, while other characters in Genshin Impact can equip her signature polearm, the weapon will not transform into a scythe when wielded by them.


Genshin Impact 4.6’s New Area May Fix One Problem, But Leave Another

According to Version 4.6 leaks, Genshin Impact may receive a new and highly expected area that may address a problem, but leave another unresolved.

Arlecchino’s Weapon In Genshin Impact 4.6 May Be A Commercial Tactic

Genshin Impact's Arlecchino looks straight at the viewer's direction while she stands in front of a theater chair.

The leaks mentioning that Arlecchino’s signature weapon has an exclusive animation only activated by her may be a commercial tactic. Locking this special animation out from all other characters aside from the main unit themselves has not yet been employed, but it may be a way of subtly incentivizing players to spend and test their luck trying to pull both the limited-time 5-star character and their signature 5-star weapon within a single update. Players who obtain Arlecchino in Genshin Impact may end up pulling her signature weapon for the special animation alone.

Alternatively, players who obtain the character’s signature 5-star weapon for its stats and potential in combat may end up wanting to obtain Arlecchino as a means of unlocking the special animation, said to be unachievable with other characters in the game. Locking a weapon’s full animation behind a specific character seems more like a commercial tactic than a reward for players who get both of them. It shouldn’t affect gameplay in Genshin Impact, luckily, but the leaks make it feel somewhat demeaning, as players allegedly need both pieces to get a single item’s full experience.

Of course, this is a leak and it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Before Version 4.6’s release, the weapon may be updated to trigger the special animation regardless of the character that employs it. The leak may even be completely inaccurate. This information should only be officially confirmed during the Version 4.6 livestream, which should occur in mid-April, but as the Genshin Impact progresses in Version 4.5, more leaks about the subsequent update should arise.
