The Katana Up1 is a Melee weapon. It's the upgraded version of the Katana. It has been added in the 10.0.0. update. 


It has a black handle with red dots, as well as a very long blade. It has a small and thin crossguard.


Like it's predecessor, it is a very good, well-rounded melee weapon. This is able to fulfill a variety of roles due to its high mobility and fast swing speed.


  • 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.
  • If traveling with a low-mobile weapon, use this weapon to easily traverse the map thanks to its high mobility.


  • 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.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • 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.
  • Fast-firing (or shotguns) weapons easily pick off its users.
    • If the user can't be easily caught by the said weapons, use a weapon with the Slow Downs Target trait to severely cripple their mobility.
