Cyno in Genshin Impact
August 11: Cyno appeared in another trailer, showing him in combat against Alhaitham.

Hoyoverse has given us a third trailer focused on the Sumeru region, and this time it confirmed a lot of previously rumoured information. It even gave us a look at Cyno, the Electro character teased so long ago.

The Sumeru teaser trailer showed us new faces like Dehya, Alhaitham and Nilou, along with new enemies and what we can find in the Sumeru region. It's shaping up to be a huge area with a story to match, and will not disappoint players.

We do not know when Cyno will officially release as a playable character, but there are plenty of leaks suggesting it will be in the first few 3.0 updates. Cyno will most likely be a 5-Star character, with his very own banner.

What is Cyno's Vision

In the latest Sumeru teaser trailer, we get a new look at Cyno. Here, we see that he has an Electro Vision equipped. This will make him the second Electro Polearm user in the game, after the Raiden Shogun.

What do we know about Cyno's build?

Both of Cyno's official appearances in trailers have shown him holding a Polearm weapon. Though it is technically not written in stone, it is incredibly unlikely that he would have a different weapon type in combat.

For now, we do not have any information on Cyno's constellation or skills. We will update when we learn more!

Who is Cyno in Genshin Impact?

We first met Cyno as an unnamed character in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview trailer, which released back in September 2020. He is the character appearing after the Sumeru title card, wearing a helm that resembles Anubis. Though we didn't see his Vision at first, we do see him holding a Polearm.

Cyno hails from Sumeru, and is the 'General Mahamatra'. We're not sure what this means yet. Due to his clothing, and where we see him, we can surmise that Cyno will appear in the story when the Traveler arrives in the desert section of Sumeru.

To prepare for the upcoming release of Sumeru, take a look at our new character pages to see who you might want to pull for - we have Dehya, Nilou, and Alhaitham, and a guide to who the Fatui Harbingers are.
