Boothill is a 5-Star Physical character of The Hunt path likely coming to Honkai: Star Rail in version 2.2.

While Boothill will likely be featured as the boosted 5-Star character on his Banner in version 2.2, he will eventually return to Honkai: Star Rail at some point in the future when the Banner schedule cycles back to him.

If you want to prepare for if you Warp for him successfully, we've detailed reliable leaks of Boothill's Ascension materials and Trace materials so you can level him up to his full potential right away. To understand how you might play him, we've also detailed what we know about Boothill's kit and Eidolons.

Keep in mind that this is leaked beta information, so Boothill's materials and kit might change upon his official release.

Honkai Star Rail Boothill kit

Boothill is a 5-Star Physical character of The Hunt path who scales off Break Effect and can implant a Physical Weakness on enemies with his Ultimate and Technique.

All of the percentages mentioned below are based on Level 1 Traces.

Keeping in mind that this is leaked beta information from honyehunterworld that could change upon his official release, here's a summary of Boothill's kit in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Element: Physical.
  • Path: The Hunt.
  • Rarity: 5-Star.
  • Cropped splash art of Boothill from Honkai Star Rail.

  • Basic Attack: Skullcrush Spurs - Deals Physical damage equal to 50% of Boothill's attack to a single enemy.
  • Enhanced Basic Attack: Fanning the Hammer - Deals Physical damage equal to 110% of Boothill's attack to a single enemy. This enhanced Basic Attack can't recover Skill Points, and can only target the enemy currently with Standoff.
  • Skill: Sizzlin' Tango - When used, his Skill makes the targeted enemy and Boothill enter the Standoff state. Boothill's Basic Attack becomes Enhanced, and he can't use his Skill, lasting for two turns. The remaining turn count reduces by one at the start of Boothill's turn. The enemy target in Standoff is taunted. When the target/Boothill receives an attack from the other, the damage they receive increases by 15%. After the target is defeated or becomes Weakness Broken, Boothill obtains one stack of Pocket Trickshot, then dispels Standoff. His Skill can't regenerate Energy, but his turn will not end after using it.
  • Ultimate: Dust Devil's Sunset Rodeo - Boothill applies Physical Weakness to a target enemy, lasting for two turns. He also deals Physical damage equal to 240% of his attack to the target, and delays their action by 30%.
  • Talent (passive ability): Five Peas in a Pod - Every stack of Trickshot increases Boothill's Enhanced Basic Attack's Toughness-Reducing damage by 50%, stacking up to three times. If the target is Weakness Broken when his Enhanced Basic Attack is used, for every stack of Pocket Trickshot Boothill has, he deals Break Damage to this target equal to 35% of Boothill's Physical Break Damage. The maximum Toughness taken into account by this attack can't exceed 16 times the base Toughness-Reducing Damage dealt by the 'Skull crush Spurs' attack. After winning a battle, Boothill can retain Pocket Trickshot for the next battle.
  • Technique (overworld ability): 3-9x Smile - When using Boothill's Skill for the first time in the next battle, Physical Weakness is added to the target, equal to that applied by his Ultimate. This lasts for two turns.
  • Bonus Trace 1: Ghost Load - Increases Boothill's Crit Rate by 10% of his Break Effect, and his Crit Damage by 50% of his Break Effect. Crit Rate can only be increased by a maximum of 30%, whereas Crit Damage can be increased by a maximum of 150%.
  • Bonus Trace 2: Above Snakes - Decreases the damage Boothill receives from targets not in Standoff by 30%.
  • Bonus Trace 3: Point Blank - When Pocket Trickshot is obtained via Boothill's Talent, he regenerates 10 Energy. This effect is also triggered when obtaining Pocket Trickshot stacks that exceed the maximum.
