Overview

  • Fast, powerful, and easy to use, Katana possesses an incredibly versatile and strong kit.
  • Possesses a Photon Art for nearly any situation, making the weapon extremely adaptable.
  • Specializes in primarily close to mid-range melee attacks, but sports several methods to quickly close gaps to move within range.
  • Many of its Photon Arts are charge or timed release-based; failure to execute them properly will significantly neuter output.
  • Slightly more taxing on PP resources than other weapons.
