- Genshin Impact player discovers glitch allowing character Charlotte to attack enemies from a distance exceeding her normal attack range.
- The glitch can be triggered by using Charlotte’s 3rd Normal Attack on an enemy and hitting a targetable plant.
- Many players are excited to try out this glitch before it is fixed by the developers, as Charlotte is a versatile character often used as a healer and sub-DPS.
A Genshin Impact player has shared an interesting video showing the recently released character Charlotte attacking enemies despite being nowhere close to them. Charlotte is part of the ongoing double banner which features Baizhu and Furina as the five-star banner characters as well as Beidou and Collei on the four-star lineup.
As the world of Genshin Impact expands with almost every other update, it does not come as a surprise that players often run into various types of glitches that are usually harmless and can even improve the overall exploration experience. At the moment, there are five weapon types in the game, three of which are considered melee, while two are usually reserved for characters that can attack from a safe distance.
One of the two ranged weapon types is the catalyst, which is commonly used by mages, but there are some exceptions, like Wriothesley and Heizou who prefer close combat despite having this type. The ongoing Genshin Impact update 4.2 has introduced a new catalyst user by the name of Charlotte, who was the first Fontaine character to be officially revealed. Charlotte made her first in-game appearance back in update 3.7 where she was introduced as a famous journalist from the Hydro nation. A Reddit user by the name of cycber123 has revealed a very interesting video showing that Charlotte is able to attack enemies from a distance that exceeds her usual Normal Attack range.
The Redditor has revealed that in order to trigger this glitch, players need to use Charlotte’s 3rd Normal Attack on an enemy and then hit a targetable plant like the Mist Flower. In one of their replies in the comment section, cycber123 also confirmed that they tried this trick in co-op mode, which allowed Charlotte to attack enemies in Sumeru while being in Mondstadt.
The glitch has gathered a lot of attention in the community with many players claiming that they need to try this out before HoYoverse decides to fix this glitch. On the battlefield, Charlotte is mostly used in two roles: healer and sub-DPS. Even though she’s reliant on accumulating energy particles for her healing, many fans are still surprised by how well she can perform when placed in the healing role.
Just like most Cryo characters, Charlotte performs the best when placed in two specific team comps that revolve around the Frozen and Melt reactions. When it comes to her go-to weapon, players should try to equip this four-star character with either Skyward Atlas catalyst, which has decent synergy with her kit.
