Uncover Their Locations, Elemental Weaknesses, and Tactics for Victory
Genshin Impact’s 4.1 update has brought a plethora of new content for players to explore and conquer. Among the various additions, one notable inclusion is the introduction of Fatui Operatives, a new category of elite enemies.
The 4.1 update to Genshin Impact adds a wide range of new features, including all-new characters, locations, and foes that players will come across while exploring. The update also adds a new class of elite foes known as Fatui Operatives, in addition to new bosses, local legends, and the secret monster Thorny Cyst. Fatui Operatives are a type of adversary in the game that comes in several variations, in this case, two, with somewhat varied move sets that players must be aware of.
Players can get Old Operative’s Pocket Watch, Operative’s Standard Pocket Watch, and Operative’s Constancy by defeating Fatui Operatives. The Dockhand’s Assistant (sword) and Cashflow Supervision, the hallmark weapon of Wriothesley (catalyst), are two examples of the new weapons that can be enhanced with the help of these objects, which act as weapon ascension materials. Players looking to upgrade these weapons are strongly urged to start farming Fatui Operatives in Genshin Impact as soon as possible due to the current game’s restricted availability of these foes.
Meet the Fatui Operatives
The Fatui Operatives are a fresh addition to the roster of enemies in Genshin Impact, and they come in two distinct variants: Wind and Frost Fatui Operatives. These elite adversaries present players with a unique challenge due to their higher HP pools compared to regular foes. However, with the right tactics and elemental strategies, they can be defeated efficiently.
Wind Fatui Operatives
The Wind Fatui Operatives specialize in Anemo attacks with larger Area of Effect (AoE) capabilities. These foes can be found in specific locations throughout the game world. When engaging them, it’s essential to be mindful of their potent Anemo abilities, which can make battles more challenging if not properly countered.
Frost Fatui Operatives
On the other hand, Frost Fatui Operatives employ Cryo attacks, making them a frosty adversary to contend with. Their Cryo abilities can pose a freezing threat, especially when encountered near shorelines. Being frozen can significantly hinder your progress in battle, so it’s crucial to stay vigilant and dodge their attacks.
How to Defeat Fatui Operatives
Taking down Fatui Operatives may seem daunting at first due to their elevated HP levels, but it’s a manageable task when approached strategically. Here’s how you can effectively deal with these elite enemies:
Fortunately, Fatui Operatives don’t have any specific elemental immunities, allowing you to choose your preferred characters and elemental combos. Consider building a team that can exploit their weaknesses. For Wind Fatui Operatives, characters with Pyro abilities can deal significant damage, while for Frost Fatui Operatives, Pyro or Electro characters can be effective due to the elemental reactions they can trigger.
Hunt Down Mechanic
Both variants of Fatui Operatives share a common attack called “Hunt Down,” which marks the active character. If your character is hit by this attack, they will be afflicted with the “Bond of Life” mechanic. This status prevents your character from naturally regenerating HP, similar to certain weapon abilities. To dispel this effect quickly, you can either visit a Statue of The Seven or heal your character to exceed the HP threshold indicated by the Bond of Life. Once your character’s HP is restored beyond this point, the effect will automatically be removed.
Given this unique mechanic, it’s highly recommended to include a dedicated healer in your party when farming Fatui Operatives. Having a healer on hand will allow you to avoid frequent trips to the Statues of The Seven.
Fatui Operative Locations
Now that you understand how to tackle Fatui Operatives let’s explore where you can find them across the game world. As of now, there are eight locations where you can encounter these elite enemies:
The majority of Fatui Operatives are concentrated along the shoreline in the Liffey region. Here’s a step-by-step route to efficiently farm them:
- Start at the Statue of The Seven in the Liffey region and head west towards the shoreline.
- The first Wind Fatui Operative stands alone.
- Continue along the shoreline to find two more operatives immediately after a waterfall.
- Head north off the road to locate the final Wind Fatui Operative perched on a cliff near some Crystalflies.
- For Frost Fatui Operatives, continue along the road to encounter another patrolling operative near a Fatui camp.
- To find the last Frost Fatui Operative, use the nearby teleport point to the northwest and head north along the designated route. You’ll come across the final operative on a cliff.
Fontaine Research Institute
If you’re targeting the standalone Fatui Operatives, here’s how to locate them:
- Teleport to the most northeastern teleport point north of the Central Laboratory Ruins to find the first standalone operative in a small camp.
- To locate the last standalone operative, teleport to the point north of the New Fontaine Research Institute. Head northeast through the valley to find the operative perched on a cliff near the regional borders.
In Genshin Impact’s 4.1 update, Fatui Operatives present a fresh challenge for players seeking weapon ascension materials and new weapons like The Dockhand’s Assistant and Cashflow Supervision. While they may have higher HP, these enemies can be effectively defeated by leveraging elemental strategies and being mindful of their “Hunt Down” mechanic.
By following the recommended routes and understanding the locations of these elite enemies, you can optimize your farming efforts. So, gear up, assemble your team, and prepare to face the Fatui Operatives in this exciting new chapter of Genshin Impact. Happy hunting, Traveler!
