The Katana is a high-power melee weapon with high damage, a good swing speed, and a reasonably low weight. It is the fourth-most powerful melee weapon by swing. Its swing speed is a little higher than the Knife, but lower than the Machete, making it the second-most fastest melee weapon by speed. Its low weight means it is compatible with many loadouts.

As with all melee weapons it has the ability to back-stab for double damage, to which the head multiplier is then applied. Additionally, like other melee weapons it can also damage multiple enemies in a single swing.

Strategy

  • Aim for the head, and time your swings.
