The Katana is a melee weapon of Japanese origin. It is available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto Advance, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It is one of the more powerful melee type weapons; it is able to behead opponents with a single slice, and is not as heavy as the cumbersome chainsaw.

Notable appearances

In 1998, Toni Cipriani and Kazuki Kasen engage in a katana duel on the roof of the Big Shot Casino with katanas (though the player may choose to use other weapons.). The same occurs between Snakehead and Carl Johnson in the mission, The Da Nang Thang, on a freighter off San Fierro in 1992. In both cases, the player may pull out a gun and quickly kill the opponent. Mike uses the Katana to force Mafia members into slavery in the GTA Advance mission Down the River.


In GTA San Andreas, there is a glitch that will cause CJ to be able to run around without a head. To exploit this glitch, start a multiplayer game, making sure Player Two has a Katana. At any point during the session, use Player Two to behead Player One, terminating the multiplayer session. CJ will remain decapitated for the remainder of the single-player session, except for during cutscenes. To revert to normal, reload the game.
