Elden Ring Katana Location Guide (With Images)

In the Lands Between, there are several weapons to pick from, with Katanas being one of the most effective.

Katanas specialize in mid-range fights and are able to deal slash and thrust hits. This is in addition to the Hemorrhage Status Effect that causes further damage.

Moreover, Katanas are among the greatest weapons for builds that emphasize Dexterity.

They are a justifiably popular choice of weapon but some of them can be tricky to find.
