Sons of the Forest Katana Location Guide

Let us lead you to the Katana location in Sons of the Forest.

As one of the strongest melee weapons in Sons of the Forest, you’ll want to know where to find the Katana. An added bonus in is there are plenty of other useful items to find in the location you find the Katana.

Sons of the Forest Katana Location Guide

The entrance to the area with the Katana is circled on the map below.

It isn’t particularly close to any of the helicopter crash sites, and you’ll want to be aware of cannibals on your way to the Katana because there are camps along the path on either side of the cave’s entrance.

Once inside, head down. As you descend, you’ll come across a door that requires the Maintenance Keycard to open. Head inside and a cutscene will play. After the cutscene, the door you came in will be blocked off, but that’s fine since you need to keep going deeper to find the Katana.

You come to more stairs. Go down again until you’re at Level 2. There are rooms on the right side that are open. While the Katana isn’t among the first rooms, it’s worth going into them to get items like another Pistol.

The room with the Katana on it has a broken glass table in front of the door. Inside, the Katana is easy to spot since it’s displayed quite nicely in the center of the room.

With that, you’ll have one of the best melee weapons in your inventory. But since you need a few items before you can reach the Katana location, take a look at our Sons of the Forest guides for how to get the Shovel and the Maintenance Keycard, both of which are required.
