The Katana in use.

The Katana, formerly called the Emperor's Blade, is a Melee weapon introduced in the 6.0.0 update.

Appearance

It has a black handle with red dots to ressemble a sword wrap, as well as a very long and curved blade. It has a small and thin crossguard.

Strategy

It has average damage, high attack speed, and high mobility.

Tips

  • This weapon is good for tearing down groups. Swing quickly and move on to the next opponent once your former target has been eliminated.
  • Ambush those who are good with guns. Catch them off-guard and you'll be sure to strike them down soon.
    • If they turn on you, you'll be very vulnerable, so this can be a risky tactic. Ambush a sniper for good results.
  • This can circle-strafe very well due to its high mobility and margin for error due to its swing speed. If in a melee duel, try to move unpredictably so that your opponent cannot score a good hit.
  • The Katana causes enemies to bleed and lose health/armor for a short amount of time.
  • Pair the Katana with the Berserk Boots, specifically when they are upgraded to the highest level.
    • The low weight/high mobility the weapon provides, combined with the Berserk Boots providing a tremendous speed boost should you be holding a melee weapon allows you to move quickly when holding the Katana. Use this for quick escapes and pursuing fleeing enemies.

Counters

  • Take out Katana users with long-ranged weapons, specifically your guns, and prevent them from getting close.
    • Make sure to also stay out of range of these users to prevent being hit.
  • Since the Katana inflicts a "Bleed" status, look for armor/health pick ups on the battlefield should you be hit several times.
