Manufactured by Ariake Technologies, the Katana is a common mercenary weapon, and is also popular on colonies with varren infestations. It's deadly at short range, but ineffective at long range.
Player Notes Edit
- The Katana has a good reload speed which can give you a little breathing room in tight situations.
- One major weakness of the Katana is that it has a shorter range than most other shotguns.
- One must also note the Katana's fairly slow rate of fire, which means each round must count, as a missed shot can give enemies precious seconds to kill you or get away.
- As with all shotguns, the weight of the Katana can cause problems. Some shotguns such as the Disciple and the M-22 Eviscerator are actually lighter than the Katana, making them preferable over the Katana for power-reliant classes like the Vanguard and the Adept.
