Best Genshin team composition to defeat and counter the Matrix

Similar to other Automatons like Ruin Guards and Drakes, the Matrix’s attacks have a slow wind-up, but a bone-crushing blow. Its first attack is an AOE laser barrage marked on the floor. The wind-up is quite long, so you can take your time moving out of its range.

The Matrix then summons four spinning components that will attack you. Your main goal is to destroy the smaller components.

Once you break one of them, the Matrix transforms into two Dendro pillars that can only be destroyed with Electro. If you break both pillars, the boss will be downed for an extended amount of time.

The downed phase is your best chance of attacking. Make sure you deploy a fast Electro unit like Fischl or Yae Miko for the Dendro pillars. Since the Matrix isn’t completely resistant to any specific element, you can bring out your best DPS and sub-DPS characters for maximum damage.
