Katana builds are some of the most powerful overall setups you can run in Cyberpunk 2077 after the 2.0 update. And the Satori katana is one of the best you can equip. On its own, it deals bleeding damage, has solid stats, and a clean look that goes with most fashions. Pair it with its sister dagger, Nehan, however, and the setup becomes almost too powerful. Here’s how to get the Satori Katana and Nehan Dagger in Cyberpunk 2077.
How to Get the Satori Katana and Nehan Dagger in Cyberpunk 2077
Like many of the best weapons and equipment in Cyberpunk 2077, it’s possible to miss your chance to get the Satori katana, as it’s only available for a brief window early in a playthrough.
- Satori is only available during the Heist mission on Konpeki Plaza.
- Shortly after grabbing the Relic and watching Yorinobu Arasaka murder his father, you’ll be given the optional objective of going to the AV landing pad on the roof of the building.
- However, you should first be sure to pick up Yorinobu’s sidearm, Kongou, off the nightstand near his bed.
Satori and Nehan Location
Once you have the weapon, head to the roof and pick off the two guards there. Approach the AV, open the side door, and you’ll see Satori leaning against one of the seats. Grab the databank, too, for the lore. After grabbing the katana, head back into the main suite and check Saburo’s body for the Nehan dagger.
Buying Satori and Nehan
One final note: if you own the Phantom Liberty expansion, you can visit the black market vendor in the ruined arena and purchase Satori and Nehan for a hefty fee. This is only the case if you don’t already have the katana and dagger in your inventory.
However, should you wait to purchase the two Iconic weapons, you can likely get them at a much higher Tier than if you found them early on in a playthrough, saving you time and resources upgrading them.
How Satori and Nehan Work
Nehan and Satori are meant to work together. Causing bleeding with either one of them and then dealing damage with the other will cause the enemy to hemorrhage, and with every tick of damage hemorrhaging does, you receive a small amount of healing. Defeating an enemy while they’re hemorrhaging will cause a much larger burst of healing.
As a dagger, Nehan is best used as a thrown weapon, which you can enhance using the Cool Attribute. Satori is best used with maxed-out Reflexes and a Sandevistan. That combination, between Nehan, Satori, and the Sandy, turns you into a walking buzzsaw capable of clearing entire rooms before the enemy even knows you’re there. I highly recommend it.
And that’s how to get the Satori and Nehan Iconic katana and dagger in Cyberpunk 2077. If you don’t own the expansion, it can be easy to miss the two weapons. And with them being some of the best in the game, you will want to have them around. You might also want to grab the Errata thermal katana at some point, as well as the MaxTac Mantis Blades if you play the expansion. Check out our Cyberpunk 2077 guides hub for more.
