Ganyu is a five-star cryo bow-user who can be used in aDPSorsupportrole. Her charged shots are her primary DPS source and, at level two, will create a secondary AoE shot that deals wild damage. Due to its low internal cooldown, Ganyu may be used in various team builds.

The newly releasedHunter's Path, her best-in-slot weapon, is now available via the weapon banner, though, and it doesn't exactly match her esthetically. The standard weapon for Ganyu,Amos' Bow, can be obtained passively via the standard banner.
