The Katana in use.

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


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.


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


  • 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, but 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.
  • It is a good idea to have a weapon that does area damage, such as the Armageddon.
  • This is a very good weapon in Knife Party, especially when you're in a group of enemies.


  • Pick off its users from long ranges before they can reach the player.
  • Pull out a ranged weapon while backpedaling and fire at the user. Being a melee weapon, this has particularly short range, but be careful not to get cornered so that the user can move in with ease.
  • Pulling out a ranged weapon may be considered unsportsmanlike in some circles when confronted with its users. (Only when an enemy wants the battle to be solely melee-based in any map)
  • If locked in a melee duel with a user, try to strafe around the user and score a good blow before the user can retaliate. If you are unarmored, this is especially important, as users can slay you in a single hit.
  • Try to move out of melee range by 'rocket jumping' or using a weapon with a high mobility. alternatively, try to kill the user with a mobile, rapid-firing weapon such as the Fast Death or Laser Cannon.
