What is the Wuthering Waves Levitator?

The Levitator is an important gadget in Wuthering Waves. It does exactly what it says on the tin, allowing you to float objects around, whether it be to clear a path or solve a puzzle. It’s a tool you need to gain access to certain areas in the game by lobbing flaming flowers at spiky thorns, but fortunately, you get it pretty early on, and there’s no way of accidentally missing it.

How do I unlock the Wuthering Waves Levitator?

Getting the Levitator ability in Wuthering Waves is a pretty simple task given that you come across it quite early in the story. You need to clear the Grappling Hook tutorial in the main city of Jinzhou, then as part of the First Resonance quest, Sanhua hands over the Levitator as well as some other key items for exploring the wide world of Solaris-3.

How do I use the Wuthering Waves Levitator?

Using the Levitator is easy, and better still, the game tends to point out when it’s time to use it. If you’re near an object you can levitate, the icon second-furthest on the left on the bottom of the screen should begin to glow yellow, and all you have to do is tap that icon to start levitating. From here, just use touch controls to aim the object and tap again to send it flying or place it down- or if you’re using a PC or keyboard, use the buttons indicated. It really is that simple.

If you are using a controller, though, the ‘put down’ option is hidden in a separate menu – hit LB to bring up the option and then hit Y to gently place the object.
