Description Edit

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.

Acquisition Edit

The M-23 Katana is one of the five starter weapons. Upgrades are randomly rewarded through purchases of item packs. The Katana is categorized as common.

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.
