Genshin Impact Player Points Out Weird Detail With Rain

Genshin Impact player notices a weird detail with rain which shows drastic changes in weather patterns upon entering and exiting city areas.

The rain in miHoYo’s RPG Genshin Impact is an important feature because of how it interacts with players, but one Genshin Impact fan recently noticed an inconsistency with the weather systems. Prepared with a clip of entering and exiting Inazuma City, this player showed that the weather changes upon entering city areas.

Reddit user Shexxar696 recently shared a clip of a raining Inazuma in Genshin Impact that begins with the player just outside of the nearby city. Climbing the stairs to Inazuma City from the North-East side, the thunder and lightning stopped just as quickly as the rain did and the gloomy sky quickly dissolved into a beautiful sunset with fluffy clouds. Not content simply to show the weather changing upon entering the city area, Shexxar696 also left the city in order to see if the weather would return to the dark wetness that it was before.


After leaving Genshin Impact‘s Inazuma City in Shexxar696’s video, the rain immediately started pouring alongside cherry blossoms and the lighting began striking from the sky again. Returning to the city once more, the weather cleared up as it did the first time which showed the city’s impeccable ability to stay dry. Despite sticking to just Inazuma in their video, Shexxar696 claims that this is consistent in other cities when it’s raining in the nearby area but not in the central hub.

Because of how Genshin Impact‘s lightning and rain interact with the environment and players, it’s likely that miHoYo disables the weather in cities to prevent other issues from arising. While it may look strange to gamers who don’t play Genshin Impact to see weather change so suddenly, it’s likely due to things like the possibility of lightning striking players or rain preventing them from cooking with fireplaces found in the city. There are exceptions to this drastic weather system change in Genshin Impact cities such as during the Archon Dragon Storm Quest, but outside of storylines, players won’t encounter lightning or rain in cities.

The region of Inazuma portrayed in Shexxar696’s clip is also known to Genshin Impact players for being a particularly lightning-heavy area, which is fitting considering the nation worships Raiden Shogun, the Electric Archon. Once a player is struck by lightning in Genshin Impact, they lose all of their Energy and take a big chunk of damage. Rain is less intrusive for players beyond impeding the ability to cook, but like many other weather systems in games such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or The Witcher 3, it adds to miHoYo’s ability to immerse Genshin Impact players in the world of Teyvat.

Genshin Impact is available right now for mobile, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and PS5.
