The Satori Katana is hailed by players as the best katana in Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 has several options concerning weapons V can wield. While firearms are typically the most popular in-game, there's nothing to stop players from hacking and slashing their way through Night City with a blade. In fact, some have, making the interest and demand around the lauded Satori Katana soar.

Here's how to get the Satori Katana.

Players can find this weapon during the main job, "The Heist" in Act 1. This job has everything to do with the corporate takeover of Arasaka by Yorinobu, the heir to the company's fortune. Fortunately, Arasaka's loss is V's gain.

Toward the end of the job, when Yorinobu murders his father, Konpeki Plaza is placed on lockdown and V is directed toward an exit before they can be caught. However, if players choose to ignore these instructions, they have a chance to get their hands on the Satori Katana early in the game.

Instead of making their escape, players need to head to the stairs and find the second floor to locate a door that will give them roof access. The rain may make it difficult to see, but on the roof V will come face to face with the now dead Saburo Arasaka and his heavily guarded Rayfield.

Using stealth or force is up to player discretion as long as they bypass the guardsmen and open the vehicle door. The katana should be there, sticking up in the man's body. Simply pluck it from its bloody sheath and complete the quest to keep it.

The game describes this weapon as "Property of Saburo Arasaka. An antique katana forged in the first the half of the 20th century that hasn't dulled a day." It's both rare and iconic, and deals around 220 points of damage per second with 57 points per swing at just over 3 swings per second. Most importantly, it has a remarkably high critical damage multiplier.
