A guide on the list of controls of Genshin Impact. Read on to learn more about the game's controller configuration for PC, mobile, and consoles.
Genshin Impact's mobile version uses touchscreen commands for moving, adjusting the camera, and for combat. The sensitivity of the camera can be adjusted in the Settings menu.
For basic movement, a virtual joystick on the lower left of the screen lets character run across any direction.
The camera can also be rotated by tapping and dragging on an empty part of the screen. You can also zoom in and out by pinching the screen with 2 fingers.
Players can dash and sprint using the Evade button on the lower right of the screen, but keep in mind that sprinting also consumes stamina. Depleted Stamina will replenish over a short period of time.
Players can also jump by tapping the Jump button. This also allows you to climb walls, but keep in mind that Climbing also consumes Stamina.
If you lose stamina while climbing, you will automatically drop from the wall.
For swimming, simply move into the water and drag the joystick in any direction you want to swim. You can also tap the icon on the lower right to swim faster, but keep in mind that this also depletes stamina.
Basic attacks can be executed by tapping the Attack button, an icon with the crossed swords design. Tapping this repeatedly allows the character to attack in succession.
Each character also has Elemental Skills that can be used in combat. The icons show up when facing an enemy, allowing players to unleash special attacks. This icon can also be held down for stronger attacks.
Another way to unleash Elemental Attacks is to use the Elemental Burst command. This allows you to unleash a stronger version of your Elemental Skill on foes.
Special commands will appear on your screen when you get close to elements you can interact with. These include unlocking Teleport Waypoints located across the map.
You can also pick up items, like materials and restorative items, along the way. Simply move close to an item, and tap the icon to pick it up.
Using a bow user's aiming mode also lets you fire more precise shots on foes. To activate this ability, simply tap the aim icon and drag the camera with your finger. Then tap the Attack icon to shoot.
The PC version of Genshin Impact supports PS4 controllers in addition to its keyboard layout.
Basic commands for the PC version rely on the WASD keyboard layout for movement and the mouse for attacking. See below for the list of commands in Genshin Impact's PC version.
W = Move Forward
A = Move Left
S = Move Back
D = Move Right
Right Click = Evade
Left Click = Attack
Mouse = Move Camera/Aiming Mode
1 = Switch to Party Member 1
2 = Switch to Party Member 2
3 = Switch to Party Member 3
4 = Switch to Party Member 4
5 = Switch to Party Member 5
A bow user's aiming mode on the PC version can be activated by pressing R, and using the mouse to aim. You can fire by pressing the left mouse.
The PS4 control layout has actions mapped to each button on the controller. See below for the list of commands.
When navigating the Genshn Impact menu with a PS4 controller, press ◯ to accept and ╳ to go back.
Genshin Impact's PS4 Controller layout involves using the L Stick to move the character, while using the R Stick to rotate camera both when moving and while in Aiming Mode. Other controls are as follows:
△ = Elemental Burst
◯ = Normal Attack
╳ = Jump
◻ = Pick up/Interact
A bow user's aiming mode on the PC version can be activated by pressing L2, and using the R Stick to aim. You can shoot by pressing ◯.

I wonder why on PC the select(A/X) buttons are the back buttons(B/O)? Because on the PS it works normally.
