Genshin Impact Heizou Hangout Guide – Unlock All Endings

Here's how to unlock all endings for the Genshin Impact Heizou Hangout, plus choices for the secret achievements!

The Genshin Impact Heizou Hangout Event is all about solving crime. Your new friend, detective Shikanoin Heizou, will teach you the ins and outs of preventing fraud and solving murder cases. Surprisingly dark stuff for a Hangout Event, but don’t worry; it’s mostly happy endings.

As always, your actions will determine the outcome of the Hangout Event. If you manage to unlock all five endings, you will get the maximum rewards. Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide to make that a reality! Of course, we’ll also explain how to find the Heizou Hangout Secret Achievements.

Shikanoin Heizou Hangout Requirements

How to Get All Shikanoin Heizou Hangout Endings

This Hangout Event has a total of five endings. Our step-by-step guide will help you find the corresponding dialogue branches with ease. If a certain dialogue option isn’t mentioned, however, it just means that choice doesn’t influence the Hangout’s outcome.

Heizou’s Hangout Event starts at the Bantan Sango Detective Agency in Inazuma City. Sango and Ryuuji will ask you to find a missing person named (surprise!) Shikanoin Heizou. First, teleport to Sangonomiya Shrine on Watatsumi Island. A guard will then point you to the southeastern corner of Watatsumi, where you need to defeat a group of Nobushi. Once that’s done, our star detective will introduce himself.
