Where to find the Katana in Sons of the Forest

If you open the map, you will see a bunch of green pulse icons. These icons lead you to important places such as caves, camps, and other landmarks. To get the Katana, you need to go to the green dot located on the eastern side of the map. This is located pretty far, so make sure you’re well prepared for the journey.

Before going to the location, make sure you acquire the Maintenance Keycard first. Otherwise, you won’t be able to go through a locked door which has the Katana behind it. After acquiring the card, reach the spot in the image below and enter the cave.

You need to make your way through the cave, unlock the door using the keycard, and continue going forward until you reach a bunker. Here, you will find the Katana inside one of the rooms on a table. Grab the Katana and get out.

To equip the Katana, open your inventory by pressing the ‘I’ key. Then, select the Katana, and it will be in your hands. While the Katana is an excellent weapon, you will still need to be extremely careful with it. This is because while using it, you’ll need to stay extremely close to your targets to hit them.
