Best Weapons for Support Bennett in Genshin Impact

When Genshin Impact was first released in September 2020, it went live with a large pool of unique characters. Sadly, many original top-tier characters like Diluc and Keqing have fallen behind after getting power crept by new characters. However, certain characters have managed to stay relevant even today.

Bennett is one of the oldest characters in Genshin Impact. He is a 4-star Pyro character hailing from the city of freedom, Mondstadt. Bennett is among the most used characters in Genshin Impact as he can play the role of DPS, healer, and support at the same time.

Bennett, the only member of Benny’s Adventure Team, is the unluckiest adventure of Adventurer’s Guild. However, outside of the game lore, Bennett is a must-have teammate for most of the team comps in Genshin Impact.

Like any other character, weapon choice is essential for Bennett. In fact, players have to be more careful when picking weapons for Bennett. This article showcases the best weapons for support Bennett in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact Bennett: Best Support Weapons Guide

In Genshin Impact, players can play Bennett either as a DPS or support character. Bennett can deal tons of damage by spamming Passion Overload and Fantastic Voyage by combining his short cooldown on Elemental Skill and Burst with his particle generation capabilities.

Bennett is popularly played as a support as he is pretty cheap to build. As a supporting character, Bennett buffs his teammates’ attack stats and provides healing with his Elemental Burst, Fantastic Voyage.

When picking weapons for support playstyle, players should use a weapon with high base attack as Bennett’s attack buffs scales on his base attack, which includes the weapon’s base attack. Also, having Energy Recharge as the secondary stat is a bonus.

Best 5-star Swords for Bennett Support Playstyle

1) Mistsplitter Reforged

Mistsplitter Reforged

At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 674
  • Sub-Stat: Crit DMG 44.1%
  • Passive: Gain a 12% Elemental DMG Bonus for every element and receive the might of Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a (8/16/28)% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character’s Elemental Type. The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.

Like for almost every sword user, Mistsplitter Reforged is the best weapon for both DPS and Support Bennett in Genshin Impact. This weapon offers the highest base attack in the game while also providing a decent 44.1 Crit DMG at level 90. Players are recommended to use Mistsplitter Reforged to obtain maximum attack buff from Bennett.

2) Aquila Favonia

Aquila Favonia

At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 674
  • Sub-Stat: Physical DMG 41.3%
  • Passive: ATK is increased by 20%. Triggers on taking DMG: the soul of the Falcon of the West awakens, holding the banner of the resistance aloft, regenerating HP equal to 100% of ATK and dealing 200% of ATK as DMG to surrounding enemies. This effect can only occur once every 15s.

After Mistsplitter Reforged, Aquila Favonia is the only option for getting maximum attack buff from Bennett. The secondary stat isn’t exactly helpful for Bennett’s support role. Since Aquila Favonia is a standard 5-star sword while Mistsplitter Reforged is a limited 5-star sword, some players only have access to the first one.

3) Skyward Blade


At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 608
  • Sub-Star: ER 55.1%
  • Passive: Crit Rate increased by 4%. Gains Skypiercing Might (lasts for 12 seconds) upon using Elemental Burst:
    • Increases Movement SPD by 10%
    • Increases ATK SPD by 10%, and
    • Normal and Charged hits deal additional DMG equal to 20% of ATK.

Genshin Impact players often shun skyward weapon series. Nonetheless, they are a decent choice for many characters, including Bennett. Skyward Blade provides a whopping 55.1% Energy Recharge while adding a base attack of 608. Skyward Blade is recommended for building high ER Bennett builds that are ready to burst off the cooldown.

4) Freedom Sworn


At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 608
  • Sub-Stat: EM 198
  • Passive: It provides the following benefits from its passive:
    • Increases DMG by 10%.
    • Grants a Sigil of Rebellion to all party members when the character or teammate triggers Elemental Reactions
    • Possessing two sigils increases the entire party’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 16% and increases ATK by 20%.

Freedom Sworn is a fantastic weapon for many support characters in Genshin Impact. Even though its secondary stat is lousy for some characters, the team-wide attack buff from Freedom Sworn’s passive gives a decent damage increase to all party members.

Being a 5-star, it has a high base attack which works perfectly for Bennett. He can also use Elemental Mastery from Freedom Sworn to deal high damage with Vaporise and Melt reactions.

Best 4-star Swords for Bennett Support Playstyle

1) The Alley Flash

The Alley Flash

At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 620
  • Sub-Stat: EM 55
  • Passive: Increases DMG dealt by the character equipping this weapon by 12/15/18/21/24%. Taking DMG disables this effect for 5s.

For being a 4-star weapon, The Alley Flash boasts a whopping 620 base attack, more than some 5-star swords. This high base attack is because of the low scaling of its secondary stat. But since Bennett only cares about weapon’s base attack, The Alley Flash is an excellent 4-star choice for him.

2) Prototype Rancour


At level 90 Refinement Rank 1,

  • Base ATK: 565
  • Sub-Stat: Physical DMG 34.5%
  • Passive: On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks increase ATK and DEF by 4/5/6/7/8% for 6s. Max 4 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s.

Prototype Rancour has the same story as Prototype Rancour. Though its secondary stat and passive is kind of useless for Bennett support, it has a decent high base attack. Moreover, it is a craftable weapon that means anybody can obtain it.

3) Festering Desire


At level 90 Refinement Rank 5,

  • Base ATK: 510
  • Sub-Stat: ER 45.9%
  • Passive: Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 32% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 12%.

Festering Desire is an event-exclusive weapon available for free in Genshin Impact version 1.2. Players who had completed The Chalk Prince and the Dragon event can only use Festering Desire. It has a good base attack with useful Energy Recharge secondary stat. Many old players own this weapon and can use it on their Bennett.

Other options

Apart from the above-mentioned 4-star swords, players can also use Favonius Sword and Sacrificial Sword. Both have an extremely high Energy Recharge of 61.3% but have a low base attack of only 454. These two weapons are only recommended for healer Bennett builds.

In the early game, Genshin Impact players can use 3-star swords like Skyrider Sword, Harbinger of Dawn, Traveler’s Handy Sword, etc., on Bennett. This wraps up our list of best swords for Bennett as a supporting character. If you have a doubt regarding any weapons, feel free to ask in the comments!
