Automaton Front Genshin Impact: How to Complete the Challenge

To unlock Automaton Front, you'll need to talk to Muzhen, who can be found in Ritou. She'll give you the "Facing Distant Echoes" quest, which you'll need to complete to unlock the stage challenges. The fourth of those challenges will be Automaton Front.

Once you've reached Stage 4, you'll be able to find the Automaton Front Domain west of Araumi. Head to the coast and you'll find a cliff and a waterfall. Make your way down to the base of the falls and you'll find a Domain door you can pass through.

Inside the Domain, interact with the Challenge Mechanism in the center of the room to start the fight. You can complete this fight however you prefer, but you can summon Electrogana nearby using Thunder Sakura Boughs to get some extra buffs.

  • Thunder Dwelling: Use an Electrogana to charge the Thunder Dwelling. Once charged, it will deal a wave of Electro damage.
  • Nimbus Gems: Linking with these will provide buffs. One link increases Energy Recharge, two deals more Elemental Burst damage, and three sends out a shockwave with each attack.

Use these buffs and your strongest characters and you'll get through the challenge in no time.
