How to get the Catch in Genshin Impact

Fishing was added in Genshin Impact 2.1, but one of the best rewards you can get for it is a polearm that looks like a trident with two prongs. Fishing is the only way to get a weapon called “Catch”.

This is the best free polearm you can get in all of Teiwata.

The Catch Spear is perfect for characters like Raiden Shogun, Zhong Li, or Xiang Ling. If you’ve got the Baal and can’t afford her fancy five-star weapon, the Catch is a great alternative. It’s free, plus Catch grants strong bonuses to energy regeneration, elemental blast damage, and elemental blast critical damage.


This is how you can get the Spear Catch in Genshin Impact.
