How to Redeem Codes on Honkai: Star Rail

HoYoverse /

Honkai: Star Rail, the latest free-to-play RPG from miHoYo, released today, allowing players to explore a sci-fi universe populated by unique anime-styled characters. The game, which offers hundreds of hours of content via completing new quests and unlocking new characters, may seem overwhelming at first, but luckily there is a system in place that will allow players to redeem special promo codes and get ahead. Here’s how to redeem codes in Honkai: Star Rail.

Honkai: Star Rail is the fourth game in the Honkai series – which features the titular force as its primary antagonist. The Star Rail in question is a space train players must defend from the invading force. The game’s primary features are turn-based combat and RPG-style progression, along with exploration of its sci-fi setting.

How to Redeem Codes on Honkai: Star Rail

Redeeming codes in Honkai: Star Rail is a pretty simple process, and there are ways to do it in-game and, separately, online. According to PC Gamer, redeeming a code in-game takes just a few steps.

  1. Open the phone menu
  2. Click on the three dots next to the character portrait
  3. Open the menu for code redemption and enter the code
  4. Collect the reward from the player mailbox

If a player can’t redeem codes in-game for whatever reason, they may also be redeemed in a browser. To do so, one must:

  1. Visit the code redemption site, making sure one is logged in and on the right server
  2. Enter the code
  3. Collect the reward from the player mailbox

Simple and straightforward! Furthermore, players already have a chance to try out this system, as miHoYo has released a number of codes for April 2023 to promote the game’s launch, which give players a jumpstart on earning in-game currency. These rewards may only be available for a short time after release, so it might be worth getting familiar with the code redemption process before they expire.
