The Katana is a Japanese sword which appears as a melee weapon. It is available in all games in the 3D Universe, except Grand Theft Auto III. It is one of the most powerful melee type weapons; it is able to decapitate opponents with a single slice, and is not as heavy as the cumbersome chainsaw. The Katana was omitted from the HD Universe games; however, in Chinatown Wars the Sword appears instead.
In GTA San Andreas, there is a glitch that will cause CJ to be able to be controlled 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.
