This katana was forged from a fragment of azure meteorite. You can hardly imagine the tools the forger needed.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Last Samurai is a Melee weapon introduced in the 13.5.0 Update.

Description

It is a sword with a long blade that attacks and bleeds the opponent in close range. This weapon deals a good amount of damage, high attack speed, and decent mobility. It takes about 3-4 hits to kill an armored player.

Appearance

The weapon is a reskin of the Katana. It has a blue blade which does ombré into a lighter shade of blue and a gold hilt. Whenever the weapon is in hand, a particle effect swirls around the blade.

Performance

The player, holding this weapon from its gold handle with both hands, swings it to attack the opponent in close range, dealing them some damage and making them bleed, which means that the opponent temporarily loses health.

Strategy

Tips

  • Get up close and personal to the enemy and then attack as you would with any other normal melee weapon.
  • Try to take cover or switch weapons when engaging a sniper or fighting users with ranged weapons.
  • It has a decent mobility so it could be used for dodging projectiles.
  • Pair the katana with Burning Tiara, Cape Editor, Demolition Mask, Berserk Boot and Alloy for even better effect.
  • This weapon is very effective when using the 3 category spam method and is used by many players to move around swiftly when not firing.

Counters

  • This weapon is very deadly, so attack from medium or long range using high damaging weapons like Veteran or Warmaster.
  • You could try sneaking up on the users or strafing and running around them to make them confused.
  • Be very careful when using weapons such as Rocket Launcher or Ghost Lantern to kill Last Samurai users. They could easily have a gear piece such as the Berserk Boots active to dodge the projectile, and with the slow reload of such weapons, you are leaving yourself vulnerable.
  • Use slowing weapons or gadgets to impair the weapon's speedy ability, leaving the user vulnerable to your counterattacks.

Equipment Setups

Grab a weapon that performs well at medium range, such as the Casanova or Secret Forces Rifle. Also bring a decent, high damaging Sniper such as One Shot, Laser Crossbow, or Royal Sniper Rifle.
