Genshin Impact is such a game that doesn’t fail when it comes to catching attention. From its catchy anime-style surroundings to the diverse characters with magical powers it is a game that definitely lives up to everyone’s expectations.
It offers several items with which you can perform specific activities. Onikabuto is such an item in Genshin Impact that was released on the 2.0 version.
What is Onikabuto?
At the first glance at the name Onikabuto, a kind of traditional or indigenous Japanese object may come to your mind. But you will be surprised to know that it is a beetle. To be precise a purple-colored Rhinoceros beetle. It has a light purple colored pattern on its back.
There are several Onikabutos scattered in the world of Tevyat. They spawn in and around areas that have lavish Electro energy and this is a key to finding them. Their favorite spot to linger around is in the branches of trees and on cliffs in secluded areas.
So, be aware of your surroundings as you are traveling. There are sparkles around them so it is not hard to spot them. If you’re worried that they might get startled and fly away as you get close to it, don’t worry they don’t.
Onikabutos can be used for the ascension of the character Arataki Itto. But for this, you will need to collect all of the 168 Onikabutos. If you don’t have Arataki Itto, don’t worry it has other uses. It can also be used as a crafting material to craft Electro Treasure Compass and for this 30 Onikabuto is needed along with other items.
