Sushang Honkai Star Rail Build Guide
Best Sushang Honkai Star Rail Build & Team
The best way to build Sushang in Honkai Star Rail is to build her ATK and CRIT Rates. This is because you want her to do the most damage possible with each attack she gets.
|Build Type||Light Cone||Team Comp||Relic Build||Relic Stat Priority|
|Main DPS||Cruising in the Stellar Sea (5-Star)||Sushang (Main DPS), Bronya (Support), Tingyun (Support), Bailu (Healer)||4 Piece Set: Champion of Streetwise Boxing |
2 Piece Set: Space Sealing Station
|Body: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG|
Planar Sphere: Physical DMG
Link Rope: ATK%
Typically, you’d want Sushang to have more SPD than Bronya. This allows players to attack with Sushang and then use Bronya’s Skill to have Sushang attack again.
This helps Sushang build up her Ultimate, which can lead to an extra two attacks from Sushang. Due to her Talent, Sushang gets more powerful the more she attacks one target.
This can lead to her doing huge amounts of damage to tough enemies in the Simulated Universe or Forgotten Hall.
Here is a breakdown of the entire team comp:
|Sushang (The Hunt)||Physical||Main DPS||Sushang is your Main DPS and you'll want to keep her constantly buffed with Tingyun and going multiple times in one turn with Bronya. This will allow her to build up her damage and take down elite enemies.|
|Bronya (The Harmony)||Wind||Support||Bronya can increase the ATK of all the team members and she also has a skill that can grant additional turns to her teammates.|
|Bailu (The Abundance)||Lightning||Healer||Bailu will need to heal any allies that get too low while in battle. Thankfully, she also has the ability to resurrect a fallen ally once per battle.|
|Tingyun (The Harmony)||Lightning||Support||Tingyun raises the offensive capabilites of your team with her ability to increase the ATK of her allies.|
Top 3 Best Lights For Sushang
- In The Night
|In the Night||The Hunt||★★★★★||Increases the wearer's CRIT Rate by 12%/15%/18%/21%/24%. While the wearer is in battle, for every 10 SPD that exceeds 100, increase the wearer's Basic ATK and Skill DMG by 6%/7.5%/9%/10.5%/12%, and increase the CRIT DMG of their Ultimate by 8%/10%/12%/14%/16%. This effect can stack up to 8 time(s).|
In The Night has the potential to be the best Light Cone for Sushang, but due to how difficult it is to acquire, only available during certain Light Cone Event Warps; not every player may have access to it.
This Light Cone boosts the wearer’s CRIT Rate and gives them an added boost to their Basic ATK, Skill, and CRIT DMG that can stack depending on their speed.
This could push Sushang’s attack to new heights, but you’ll want to build her SPD and pair her up with someone like Asta, who can buff her stats.
|Swordplay||The Hunt||★★★★||For each time the wearer hits the same target, DMG dealt increases by 8%/10%12%/14%/16%, stacking up to 5 time(s). The stack effect will be reset when the wearer changes targets.|
Swordplay is a fantastic choice because it allows Sushang to increase her attack damage with each time she attacks the same enemy.
This is incredibly useful against elite bosses and works well with her Ultimate, advancing her action 100%.
- Cruising in the Stellar Sea
|Cruising in the Stellar Sea||The Hunt||★★★★★||Increases the wearer's CRIT rate by 8%/10%/12%/14%/16%, and increases their CRIT rate against enemies with HP less than or equal to 50% by an additional 8%/10%/12%/14%/16%. When the wearer defeats an enemy, increase their ATK by 20%/25%/30%/35%/40% for 3 turn(s).|
Cruising in the Stellar Sea is a fantastic Light Cone for Sushang because it increases her CRIT Rate and improves it with enemies that have 50% health or less.
It also raises her attack damage when she defeats an enemy. This can work well with her Ultimate since it allows her to follow up with an attack immediately.
All three of the Light Cones in this guide work well with Sushang, and some players may find that Swordplay is better than Cruising in the Stellar Sea when it comes to more elite enemies.

|Champion of Streetwise Boxing||4||Increases Physical DMG by 10%.||After the wearer attacks or is hit, their ATK increases by 5% for the rest of the battle. This effect can stack up to 5 time(s).||Cavern of Corrosion, Weekly Bosses, or Relic Synthesize.|
