Where to find the Katana in Sons of the Forest

The Katana is here to help if you’re searching for a technique to massacre adversaries in Sons of the Forest while saving ammunition for a later time. This tutorial will explain where to locate this useful weapon, which will increase your melee power and increase your chances of surviving.

What is a Katana?

Although it cannot block, the katana in Sons of the Forest is a graceful and quick weapon that is well-known for its power and style. For this reason, some players might not like it even though it offers benefits and drawbacks. The katana looks to have been improved upon in the game, as it is now more proficient than other melee weapons at severing limbs—even before an opponent is vanquished.

Katana’s Location

To obtain the Katana, you’ll need to locate the Residential cave. This cave is positioned on the southeast part of the map. Refer to the image below for precise guidance on identifying the space suit’s location within the intricate layout of the bunker’s corridors.

Navigating The Katana’s Location

When you reach the Residential Bunker door, go inside and continue down the trail until you get to a hole in the ground that leads to the bunker itself. Emphasizing that you must have the Guest Keycard in order to proceed further is imperative.

Bunker Entrance

Once you’ve successfully unlocked the door, descend the stairs and continue along the path. After reaching the bottom, search for a yellow door. Opening this door will trigger a cutscene.


Important Rooms and Items

Similar to other bunkers in Sons of the Forest, this cave features a crucial room integral to advancing the game’s storyline, along with valuable items essential for later stages of the game.

First Room

After the cutscene concludes, you can exit through the door adjacent to the giant mutant. If you opt to continue exploring this area, you’ll need to eliminate several mutants to advance. After successfully dispatching them, move on to the next area, where you’ll find an open room brimming with collectible items.
