Aloy throws a Freeze Bomb that explodes upon impact and deals Cryo DMG. This bomb also releases Chillwater Bomblets that explodes and deals Cryo DMG upon contact with enemies. This attack is great for small enemy mobs!
Whenever Aloy's Elemental Skill hits an enemy, Aloy gains 1 Coil Stack that increases her Normal ATK. Upon collecting 4 Coil Stacks, Aloy enters the Rushing Ice State which converts her Normal Attacks into Cryo DMG for 10 seconds.
During her Elemental Burst, Aloy throws a Power Cell and shoots it in mid-air, letting her deal AoE Cryo Damage over a large area. This attack works best on large enemies and mobs, especially when paired with the Hydro element to trigger Freeze.
Aloy's Constellations are currently locked, and there is no way to increase her constellations. It is possible that there may be an event where you can unlock it in the future!
Aloy's passive talent, Easy Does It, lets you sneak up on animals that produce Fowl, Raw Meat, or Chilled Meat!

An outcast since birth, Aloy grew up in a harsh mountain wilderness near the tribe that shunned her. Fostered by an expert hunter, she trained to hunt with cat-like grace and deadly accuracy – but the things she most wanted to learn, he could not teach her. Most of all, she burned to know the circumstances of her birth – who her parents were, and why she was shunned by the tribe.
Her quest for answers swept her into a wider and more dangerous world than she ever could have imagined. She encountered strange and powerful new tribes, ancient ruins rife with mysteries, and dangerous enemies, both human and machine.
Eventually she learned that her origins and destiny were deeply tied to the fate of the world itself, and fought an epic battle to save it against the evil forces of an artificial intelligence from the ancient past.
She thought that this would be the end of her journey. But there is always more to an adventurer's tale. She has now come to Teyvat in search of a new challenges.
In this brave new world, Aloy is ready for the hunt!
Along with Aloy, a 4-star Bow that goes by the name of Predator is also going to be released at the same time. The weapon's special skill only activates when Genshin Impact is played on the PlayStation.
