There is a big list of Katanas that you can get in Cyberpunk 2077 after the Phantom Liberty DLC release. However, in this guide, we will only show you the best Katanas and the reason for choosing them.
Best Katanas in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0
Below are the four best Katanas you can get your hands on in the 2.0 version of Cyberpunk 2077:
Errata Thermal Katana
Location: This can be found during the Disasterpiece story mission. You can also go back to the location if you missed it during the mission. Check out how to get the Thermal Katana to find the weapon.
Eratta Thermal Katana is a Tier 3 Iconic Weapon in Cyberpunk 2077 that gives +25% Armor Penetration and a +17% chance to apply the Burn effect to the enemies.
The included perk increases Crit Damage to the enemies that are burning. On top of that, the weapon allows you to leap in the direction you are facing at the cost of some stamina.
Errata is a cool-looking katana with a guaranteed Crit Chance on burning enemies. You can use it when fighting a group of enemies, as you can leap towards the enemy with agility.
Location: Can be looted during The Heist story mission.
Satori is the Katana used by Saburo Arasaka, which you can get in the early phase of the game. It is arguably the best Katana you will come across in the game. Satori provides +25% Armor Penetration and a +17% chance to apply the Bleeding effect to the enemies.
This weapon also offers the ability to leap towards distant enemies and perform a Quickdraw Attack that applies guaranteed Bleeding status to the enemies.
Furthermore, when paired with Nehan, an Iconic Throwable Knife, you can regenerate health on every hit with Satori after you inflict Bleeding on the enemy with Nehan.
Satori is the perfect choice if you want to make a Melee-only or Ninja build in Cyberpunk 2077.
Location: You will get the Scalpel Katana as a reward after completing the Big in Japan side job.
Another weapon to include in the list of best Katanas is an Iconic Katana named Satori, a reference to Raide’s Zandatsu that he used to slow down time.
Scalpel deals increased damage with low stamina cost. It provides +25% Armor Penetration and a 30% chance to apply Electrical Shock to the enemies. Pairing this Katana with Sandevistan will give you an increase of 50% in Crit Chance and a 100% increase in applying Bleed status on the enemies.
Scalpel is one of the best choices overall, with a great base damage value and that extra crit chance with the included perk.
Location: Can be looted during the Pisces side job.
Tsumetogi is a new addition to the arsenal of Katana Weapons in the game after the Phantom Liberty DLC.
It provides a base stat of +25% Armor Penetration and a +25% chance to deal shock damage to the enemies. It is similar to the Scalpel Katana, but with a different modifier that deals increased damage when you execute Non-standard attacks.
