8 Best Katanas In Cyberpunk 2077

What are the best katanas in Cyberpunk 2077? They range from the Tsumetogi to the Cocktail Stick.

If you want to stay alive in Cyberpunk 2077‘s dangerous Night City, you need the coolest and best guns. While it’s great to have the biggest and most powerful guns in the game, a good fighting tool will help you more when you need to stay hidden.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that some of the best melee weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 are katanas, which are one of Japan’s most famous melee weapons. Night City is full of ideas and themes that are based on Japan. These katanas are some of the best in the game.

Basic Katana

One of the easiest weapons to get early in the game is the basic katana, which is a normal version of the katana assault weapon. The weapon doesn’t come with any mods or extra effects, but as you level up, you can make better versions of it.

Once all of the improvements are fully unlocked, the basic blade can hurt your enemies with Electrical, Thermal, and even Chemical damage. This is a good fighting tool to have when you are just starting out the game and trying to figure out where you are.

Black Unicorn

In Cyberpunk 2077, you can find the Black Unicorn, a one-of-a-kind sword. You can’t get this one-of-a-kind tool from normal in-game tasks and goals. To get it, you have to go to the game’s main area.

In the bottom right area of the screen, you should see a choice that says “my rewards.” If you click on this to link your game account to your GOG account, the katana will be in V’s stash. The Black Unicorn blade is in tubes that look like Witcher III, which makes it even more unique.


A Bloody Trophy From A Revolution

The Tsumetogi is a great katana fighting weapon that you can get by finishing the Cyberpunk 2077 side quest “Pisces.” It can be a rare, epic, legendary, or famous weapon in the game.

In a one-on-one fight, this weapon is very dangerous because it lets you hit up to five times per second. The Tsumetogi also makes you 10% less vulnerable to electricity, increases the damage you do with electricity, and gives you a small chance to shock your enemies.


A Powerful Melee Weapon With Impressive Range

The Byakko katana is a one-of-a-kind sword that you can get from Wakako Okada once you finish all of her Professional Widow side quests.

When you use this weapon, you can jump-slash from one enemy to another, which makes it unique among the katanas in Night City. You will also be able to hit from closer range by one meter and have a 15% better chance of applying Bleeding.

Cocktail Stick

You can get the Cocktail Stick sword as a rare, epic, legendary, or iconic weapon. It has three mod spots. Anyone who sees this bright pink sword will want to touch it. You can find it at the Clouds Club during the “Automatic Love” side quest.

Some of the most dangerous weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 are in this group. The Cocktail Stick can do 91 to 111 damage to your enemies. The tool also has a 20% chance of giving your foes the Bleed effect.

Every hit from the Satori blade does 179 to 219 damage. It has a 48.78 percent higher chance of a critical hit and a huge 599.9 percent higher chance of doing critical damage. The tool also gives you a 20% chance to Bleed your enemies, which slowly lowers their health as the battle goes on.

The famous form of the satori blade can be found with Jackie Welles during “The Heist” task. The most interesting thing about his weapon is its long past. The sword belonged to Saburo Arasaka. It is an old blade that was made sometime in the first half of the 20th century, but it is still very sharp after all these years.
