MiHoYo took the lead on possible leaks from the closed beta of update 2.8 started on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 by presenting the character.
Heizou works at the Inazuma Administrative Commission under the orders of Kujou Sara. Until now, we had not heard of him in the game. We let you discover his official description “At first glance, Heizou looks like an ordinary young man, but he is actually the undisputed number one detective in the Administrative Commission. »
Shikanouin Heizou is a 4-star Anemo character. And amazing thing; he is the first male character to fight with a catalyst.
The gameplay of Shikanoin Heizou
Heizou may use a catalyst, but don’t expect to see him fight from a distance. On the contrary, the detective employs a single combat style. He shuns weapons to strike directly with his fists and feet. We can thus expect a particularly fluid and dynamic gameplay. His normal attacks will inflict bonus Anemo damage.
With her basic skillHeizou will be able to land a powerful punch, which you can charge up to do maximum Anemo damage.
His elemental rampage, meanwhile, takes the form of a devastating kick that creates a hurricane and deals area damage. If the skill hits an enemy affected by the Hydro, Pyro, Cryo or Electro element, the latter will receive additional area damage from this element. With its second constellation, the attack will pull in nearby enemies.
Heizou will also be able to boost your team’s elemental mastery by 80 points for 10 seconds (this does not work on him) when his elemental attack hits an enemy thanks to the passive Undeniable reasoning.
But, being still in beta phase, Heizou’s skills and constellations may be modified. All the information concerning him is thus to be taken with tweezers.
