"greater range and damage"


The Katana is a melee Weapon that evolves from the Short Sword, with improved range and damage, at Age 8.

Technical

  • The Katana is unlocked at Age 8 only if the player earlier chose the Short Sword at age 2.
  • The Katana deals 40 damage.
  • The Katana has the second longest range of any Primary Weapon.
  • Reduces move speed by 20%, making it slightly slower than the Short Sword.
  • It has an attack speed of 0.3 seconds per swing.
  • Mining 5,000 Resources with the Katana will cause it to turn into the Gold Katana.
  • Mining 10,000 resources with the Katana will cause it to turn into the Diamond Katana.

Strategy

  • Due to the improved range, it is easier to double- and triple-strike resources, which can make resource gathering more efficient.
  • Try equipping the Booster Hat or Shadow Wings or both to negate its slow movement speed.
  • Use the Samurai Armor to attack 2x as fast and effectively deal twice as much damage.
  • Use the Soldier Helmet to outlast foes while attacking with your Katana.
  • Try pairing with the Great Hammer in order to move faster.
  • Try using the Shield with the Katana by blocking blows with the shield and then switching to the Katana to hit the enemy before he has a chance to hit you again.
  • A combination of the Katana and Hunting Bow can be very strong, as the Katana can be used to deal huge damage to players and the Hunting Bow can be used to finish players off.
  • The Katana isn't very superior to the Great Axe, as both take 3 hits to kill an unarmed player. The Katana does have a very superior range to the Great Axe though. The Katana is also better for killing Mobs.
  • When battling players with Polearms, wait until he has swung his weapon, then move in for the kill, using your faster attack speed to your advantage.
  • Use for close combat.

Trivia

  • Before 0.894, the Katana was the strongest weapon in the game. To this day it still has the highest rate of damage.
  • The Katana remains many MooMoo Warrior's weapons of choice.
  • The Katana's name and design both originate from a Japanese long sword known as the Katana.
