With the many Genshin Impact codes miHoYo continues to provide players, fans will want to know how to redeem those codes on mobile, PC, and consoles.

miHoYo, the company behind the popular free-to-play gacha game Genshin Impact, has a history of giving out redeemable codes. While these codes usually celebrate special occurrences like Genshin Impact live streams that announce upcoming updates, players can get their hands on them regularly.

As Genshin Impact is playable across mobile devices, PCs, and PlayStation consoles, the method to redeem codes varies depending on the platform. Players can only redeem codes if their account is at least AR 10, as that’s the minimum requirement. For those who meet the level requirement, here is every way to redeem Genshin Impact codes on mobile, PC, and console, both in-game and on the web.

How to redeem Genshin Impact codes in-game for the PC, mobile, and console versions

Redeeming Genshin Impact codes in-game is the most convenient method for mobile and console players as it doesn’t require logging in to a browser.

Firstly, players must load into the game with the same account and server they want to redeem the code with. As this method works for mobile, PC, and console, it doesn’t matter which platform players use as long as the account is correct. Here’s the step-by-step process:

  1. Log into the game on the correct account
  2. Load into the game
  3. Open the hub menu
  4. Navigate to the cog
  5. Go to “Account”
  6. Select “Redeem Code”
  7. Enter code in text box and hit “Exchange”

The process isn’t difficult, but the density and convoluted nature of Genshin Impact’s menus can make it challenging. Here’s how this process looks in action:

After loading up the game in the correct account, open the hub menu. This can be done by pressing the ESC key on a keyboard, the start button on a controller, or tapping the Paimon menu icon on the top left corner of the screen on mobile.
