Genshin Impact Bennett Hangout guide

The new hangouts system in Genshin Impact allows you to meet up and hang out with some of the characters you'll spend so much time playing as and trying to draw - including the Bennett hangout event. Hanging out with Bennett allows you to get to know this four-star character better - and he's one of the first four characters to get a hangout alongside a few others in the same rarity class as him.

Like the others, the Bennett hangout can end one of six different ways, with each of the hangout endings reached based on the choices you make throughout your time with him. He doesn't have nearly as many dead-end pitfalls as others, either, thankfully. Bennett's an easy-going guy. This Bennett Hangout guide explains how to get all six endings:

How to unlock & start the Bennett Hangout

The Bennett hangout arrived in version 1.4 of Genshin Impact, but in order to play it you must have first completed the first 2 prologue mission threads.

In addition, it costs 2 Story Keys to unlock the Bennett hangout event to enjoy. You can get your hands on Story Keys by completing Daily Commissions. You'll get one key for every four commissions you turn in - but you can only complete four commissions per day. 

That means you'll need to put in two days' of work in order to kick off any of the hangouts, including the one with Bennett. You can game the system just a little here by being aware of the Genshin Impact server reset times, which might not match up with your timezone completely.

Genshin Impact Bennett Hangout guide: dialogue choices for all endings

The little stories told in Genshin Impact's hangouts are generally pretty straightforward. The mechanics are simple: the character you're hanging out with, in this case Bennett, has a heart-based life/affection bar. Saying the wrong thing can deplete the hearts and end the hangout early, without a proper ending. So you want to avoid those and say the right things.

In addition, what you say will help the hangout to branch across multiple paths - as demonstrated in a flow chart that's available in-game, above screencapped from Genshin YouTube guru TSouL22. Some are moderately more complex than others, but Bennett is one of the simple ones. 

To see all six Bennett hangout endings, you'll just need to pick the right branches in dialogue. We help you do that below - keep in mind that any dialogue choice we don't list won't impact your ending, so you can answer those however you like.

The Bennett Hangout will also give you a chance to earn the Fantastic Voyage: Prologue, The Power of Luck, and Archaic Lord of Lightning and Blitz achievements, which collectively will net you a total of 30 Primogems. By following this guide to see all endings, you'll also coincidentally unlock all three achievements. On a few occasions this quest will take you near Hilichurls, which can lead to you getting dragged into combat. If that happens, your only path is to defeat them to end the combat - you won't be able to continue the hangout until the area is clear of enemies.

Things start out especially slow and easy, with the first of the Bennett hangout event endings simply requiring you to answer two dialogue options in two specific ways. No sweat.

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • We could just do something else instead. (Option 1)
  • Bennett: "So, where are we gonna go?" 
    • How about we hang out around town? (Option 1)

The second ending for Bennett, Hasty Farewell, is nabbed by simply making the same first choice as the first, then the opposite choice for his second question. Easy!

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • We could just do something else instead. (Option 1)
  • Bennett: "So, where are we gonna go?" 
    • How about a walk in the wild? (Option 2)

You can probably imagine where this is going, right? For the next ending, we'll now branch off from the very first consequential dialogue option, and take it from there...

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • Sure! Let's go on an adventure! (Option 2)
  • Bennett: "Oh, uh... do you usually make some food before you set out on an adventure?"
    • I do. (Option 1)

You'll need to provide the ingredients for Bennett to make his food. These are easily enough found; he just wants 1x each of Mint, Radish, and Slime Condensate. You may even have this on you already. Remember to tab over to the materials tab when giving the ingredients over - Mint and Radish are on the ingredients tab, but the Slime Condensate is under materials.

  • Bennett: "Ah, but of course, I'll have to check with my partner first. So, what do you think?
    • ​​​You cooked it, you can do whatever you want with it. (Option 1)

The next ending is familiar, following the same steps as the previous one to begin with before taking a minor detour with a later answer when Bennett asks about what to do with the food.

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • Sure! Let's go on an adventure! (Option 2)
  • Bennett: "Oh, uh... do you usually make some food before you set out on an adventure?"
    • I do.  (Option 1)

You'll have to give Bennett the Mint, Radish, and Slime Condensate ingredients once again here. Remember, the Slime is on the materials tab. 

  • Bennett: "Ah, but of course, I'll have to check with my partner first. So, what do you think?
    • No way. You don't owe him anything. (Option 2)

No Wonder It's a Top-Class Commission | Bennett Hangout ending

Guess what? This time you'll return to an earlier choice and make the opposite choice from earlier, thus unlocking a new branch of dialogue and ending! This stuff isn't quite as complicated as some games with branching stories. Anyway, here's the answers from the start:

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • Sure! Let's go on an adventure! (Option 2)
  • Bennett: "Oh, uh... do you usually make some food before you set out on an adventure?"
    • No, I usually leave straight away. (Option 2)
  • Bennett: "How about letting me try it out first?"
    • ​​​​​​​Go ahead! We won't get anywhere just staring at them. (Option 1)

Finally, there's this ending - which I guess you could call the best ending given that it's home to the secret achievement and therefore is also the most intricate of the solutions. Here's how to reach the sixth Bennett Hangout ending...

  • Bennett: "I don't want to get you into any trouble, so just let me watch from the sidelines... that'd be good enough for me..."
    • ​​​​​​​Sure! Let's go on an adventure! (Option 2)
  • Bennett: "Oh, uh... do you usually make some food before you set out on an adventure?"
    • ​​​​​​​No, I usually leave straight away. (Option 2)
  • ​​​​​​​Bennett: "How about letting me try it out first?"
    • ​​​​​​​Hmm, how can I let you face the danger alone? (Option 2)

As the finale of this test, you will then be given the task of completing a small puzzle. All you have to do is activate the mechanisms in order by walking up to them and interacting them. Doing this correctly will get you a bonus achievement. Do them clockwise, starting at six o'clock. So that's:

  1. First, the "middle" mechanism, directly in front of your starting position.
  2. Second, the "left" mechanism at the back-left from your starting position.
  3. Finally, the "right" mechanism at the back-right from your starting position.
