Here’s everything you need to know about Zenless Zone Zero’s Corin.
Corin deals physical slashing damage with her scythe-slash-multitool. We’re still crunching the details, but we can safely say her best W-Engine is the Housekeeper, and it’s a good idea to equip her with disc drives that boost her attack.
In terms of teams, Corin can access extra talents if you have another physical or slash attacker on the team, so aim for this comp if you can.
Similarly, you can equip Corin with six disk drives similar to Genshin Impact artifacts or Honkai Star Rail relics, but we won’t know which ones work with her kit until we get beta access. Stay tuned!
Corin has a signature W-Engine – the Housekeeper. It’s an A-rank W-Engine, and you can get it on any banner. If you don’t have one handy, there are some other great options, like the [Reverb] Mark II that adds a nice boost when she attacks an enemy at close range.
|Bonus stat: base ATK
Effect: automatic energy regen increases by 0.45 energy per second when not in battle. When an EX special attack hits an enemy, physical damage is increased by 2% stacking up to 15 times and lasting one second. Repeat triggers refresh the time
|Bonus stat: crit rate
Effect: increases physical damage by 25%. This effect increases by an additional 35% when attacking the enemy from behind
|[Reverb] Mark II
|Bonus stat: increases attack
Effect: when an attack hits an enemy, the damage dealt increases with Corin’s distance from the enemy. The closer she is, the greater the damage, with a minimum of 5% and a maximum of 15%
Corin benefits greatly from a set of Assassin’s Blade, either a two- or four-piece set, as it gives her attack stat a boost. Noisy Pop is another option for this. As there are six slots for disk drives, you can get three two-piece bonuses, so another good set is the Vagabond Folk, which increases her impact.
|Disc drive set
|Two equipped: increases attack by 10%
Four equipped: basic attacks deal 20% more damage and an additional 12% upon defeating an enemy. This effect can stack up to three times and lasts for 15 seconds. Repeated triggers reset the duration
|Two equipped: increases attack by 10%
Four equipped: increases damage dealt by basic attacks by 15
|Two equipped: increases impact by 6%
Four equipped: increases daze caused by dodge counters, EX special attacks, and assist attacks by 16%

In order to upgrade Corin’s skills, you need to get some physical chips. These come in basic, advanced, and specialized rarities, and you can purchase them from the 141 store on Sixth Street.
Every few levels, Corin needs a promotion. Think of this like ascending characters in Genshin Impact. To do this, you need some slash seals, which you can earn in VR training exercises. You can also craft them into stronger versions.
Corin’s Japanese voice actor is Hiromi Igarashi who you might recognize as Anzu Futaba in The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls anime and game, HMS Glowworm in Azur Lane, and Reimu Hakurei in Muse Dash. Her Chinese voice actor is Mù fēi.
Corin is a shy and unsure member of the Victoria Housekeeping faction in New Eridu. She dresses like a maid with a frilly apron and headdress sitting between her twin tails. According to her self-introduction, she’s 16 years old with an Rh-negative blood type, which is only half of a real blood type, so she might be a bit confused.
She wields a massive multi-use cleaning tool that also functions as an electric chainsaw and an axe. Corin isn’t very confident in her abilities, constantly asking people not to overhype her skills, but she does enjoy cleaning despite it not being Victoria Housekeeping’s primary objective.
