Genshin Impact has plenty of resources that you need to collect that can be used in crafting. Some of these resources are minerals that you can only get from mining. In this Genshin Impact mineral mining guide, we are going to go over how you can mine minerals in the game.
The resources that you can mine or gather are highlighted by the game but if you do not know how you can collect them then it can get a bit confusing. On a positive note, you can carry almost endless items in your inventory so you should pick up or mine any resources that you find in the wild as you will need them one way or another.
How To Mine Minerals In Genshin Impact
You need to have a mining bode before anything else. This is an item that you can get by progressing through the main missions of the game. Mining works a bit differently in Genshin Impact as compared to other games.
Once you have the mining bode, you can start mining in the game. In order to mine resources that you find in the open world, you need to use Elemental attacks. Move your character right in front of the resource that you want to mine and hold the elemental attack button which it R2 on console. Release the button and let the item break.
Once you have done that then you can pick up the item and have it added into your inventory.
