How to unlock and defeat the Perpetual Mechanical Array in Genshin Impact

It's not as simple as it may first appear, and you'll need an Electro character in your party.

One of the best Genshin Impact characters to come to Genshin Impact in Update 2.0 was Kamisato Ayaka, a five-star Cryo sword user with an insane amount of damage output. In order to fully take advantage of her abilities, you'll need Perpetual Hearts to ascend her past level 40. Perpetual Hearts are dropped by a new boss enemy, the Perpetual Mechanical Array, and it's not at all intuitive on how to unlock this fight. It's not as simple as finding its waypoint on the map, so we'll walk you through how to unlock it.

No matter if you're playing on mobile with one of the best Android phones or on PC or PS5, the steps remain the same.

How to unlock the Perpetual Mechanical Array

If you look at the map and find the Perpetual Mechanical Arrays location, you'll notice it's completely surrounded by water. Once you go out to that location, you won't be able to find anything because it tells you it's underneath the water somewhere. Seeing as Genshin Impact characters can't dive, you need another plan. You actually have to go through a portal in order to access the battlefield, but thankfully it isn't too difficult. Just make sure you have an Electro character in your party as they're the only characters that can do this.

  1. Make your way to the north of Narukami Island.
  2. Use the Waverider boat to sail to Jinren Island.

  3. Using an Electro character, summon the Electrogranum.

  4. Keep pressing L1 and Square in order to catapult yourself up and through the portal.

  5. You'll be teleported to the battlefield with the Perpetual Mechanical Array.

  6. Walk up to it and begin the battle.

There are multiple stages to the fight, and it packs quite a punch, so be prepared. It will transform into a rocket during the initial phase, launch orbital strikes, and slash out like a spinning top. After you deal enough damage, it will split off into four separate parts. You must defeat these four parts in order to weaken the Perpetual Mechanical Array and leave it vulnerable.

How to ascend Kamisato Ayaka

Kamisato Ayaka's ascension materials vary between certain levels, but you'll initially need Old Handguards, Sakura Bloom, and Shivada Jade Sliver to ascend past level 20. This isn't where the Perpetual Mechanical Array comes into play. To ascend past level 40, you'll need the usual materials along with a Perpetual Heart, and that can only be obtained by defeating the Perpetual Mechanical Arrays over level 30.

New enemies await across the islands

Given that you need to be Adventure Rank 30 to make it to Inazuma, you should have no problem finding your way around and getting to the Perpetual Mechanical Array. It can be a difficult boss, but it's well worth the fight for its loot.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
