Basic Summary Edit

The Kaizen Katana is essentially a real life Katana. It's very durable and very hard to make. This weapon has a lot of soul. It's damage is high for a melee weapon, and it's lightweight construction allows for a relatively high ROF for a melee weapon. You can complete 10 slashes with this weapon. It provides a 5% speed buff when carried. What makes this melee weapon unique, however, is that it has been modified to cut through the enemy's resistance, allowing the weapon to overcome 20% of enemy's physical resistance.

Playing Style Edit

All melee weapons should be used only as a backup weapon in situations when ammo runs out or you are reloading. However, this weapon is useful for clearing small to medium sized mobs of zombies in a pinch, with it's high damage and pierce.
