Genshin Impact Battle Pass Guide – Rewards, Unlock, Quests, Bounties

Much like any other game you’re probably familiar with, Genshin Impact too, has a battle pass. It comes complete with the usual features: a free track and a premium track, daily quests to speed up progression, and rewards along the way. In this guide, we run down everything you need to know about the game’s battle pass system including the current iteration. From comparing the two different tracks to specific weapon unlocks, let’s dig in.

How to Unlock the Battle Pass

If you’re just starting out, you may be unable to even find the battle pass. That’s because the battle pass is locked behind Adventure Rank 20. Until then, there’s no way to view what’s going on or complete daily quests to increase its level. While you will complete some of the battle pass achievements retroactively, you can’t do so for the quests. For that reason we recommend you get to Adventure Rank 20 as quickly as possible.

You can purchase the premium track of the battle pass for $10 or spend $20 to skip straight to level ten.

If you’re just a few levels short, the good news is levels can be purchased for 150 Primogems which is just under one summon. While we don’t recommend doing so since summons are so limited without spending cash, it’s a good option to have if you’re one level short of getting a few fates or the new BP Bounty weapons.

Sojourner’s Free Battle Pass

The free version of the Battle Pass comes with the following rewards:

  • 27 Adventurer’s Experience
  • 96 Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • 720,000 Mora
  • 36 Hero’s Wit Experience
  • 5 Acquaint Fates to Use for Summoning

Gnostic Hymn Paid Battle Pass

Meanwhile, putting down $10 for the premium track of the battle pass, Gnostic Hymn, will reward you with the following. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to do a ton of grinding to actually unlock everything. Gacha games are notoriously harder to complete when it comes to battle passes.

  • 27 Adventurer’s Experience
  • 384 Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • 2,880,000 Mora
  • 162 Hero’s Wit Experience
  • 5 Acquaint Fates to Use for Summoning
  • 4 Intertwined Fates to Use for Summoning
  • 680 Primogems (Roughly Four Summons)
  • 4 Guidance of the Land of Wind Chests
    • Talent Upgrade Material Choice
  • 3 Guidance of the Land of Earth Chests
    • Talent Upgrade Material Choice
  • 1 BP Bounty Weapon (More on this in a second)
  • 1 Philosophies of the Land of Wind Chest
    • Talent Upgrade Material Choice
  • 1 Philosophies of the Land of Earth Chest
    • Talent Upgrade Material Choice

What is the BP Bounty Chest?

With each battle pass there is a bounty placed at a certain amount of progress. Reaching it will allow you to choose one of the BP Bounty weapons which are available on their own tab in the battle pass page. Each of them have a four-star rarity and the choice is ultimately yours.

Progressing the Battle Pass

There are only three ways to progress your battle pass and they’re all bounty related. Genshin Impact will generate daily missions for you to complete, these are relatively simple and can be completed in one sitting. Then there’s the weekly missions which, you guessed it, refresh at the start of every week. These are static and ask you to do the same stuff every week as far as we know. This includes cooking tasks, completing the Wolf of the North challenge, etc. It’s honestly a bunch of time sink tasks once you get far enough in the game. And finally there are a few limited bounties that span the entirety of the battle pass. Make sure to head in and check things out before you play!
