Uchigatana is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A unique katana characterized by the fine craftsmanship of an eastern land where it was forged.

The finely-sharpened blade cuts flesh like butter and causes bleeding, but breaks easily as a result.

Skill: Hold
Assume a holding stance to rapidly execute a lunging slash with a normal attack, or a deflecting parry with the strong attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Upgraded with Titanite.
  • Earliest Katana you can get in the game. Due to its early game availability, players who chose the Mercenary class will be able to use this weapon right away without leveling up as long as they two-hand it.
  • It uses slightly less stamina than all other katanas in the game except Darkdrift.

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Sword Master just outside Firelink Shrine. Should the Sword Master fall off the edge, simply reload the area and the Uchigatana will be where he fell.

      I'm a relatively new player, I don't really know much about the actual move frame data and whatnot but I've been having moments where I kind of but not really hyper armor through an attack when I do the R1 WA (probably more of a hitbox thing since the character ducks when doing the attack?). Just want to know if anyone can give a deeper explanation?

          I have hoped that uchi would have a polished blade with hamon like it did in the second game. Oh well at least we still have ubadachi.

            Not the best choice of weapon for my 10 equip load run through the game, but it served me well enough with the parry ability, and solid damage output, with a nice little boost off of Flynn's Ring. The innate bleed cannot be ignored, really helps cut down certain enemies much faster.

              Note for newbies struggling against the uchi in early-game PvP: the range on the R1s is deceptive, and the slashes come forward faster than most other swords. Its two-handed running attacks are great to parry, though, and katana users do love to overuse it... the animation has one of the game's more visibly obvious indicators for when you should press the parry button -- watch for the elbow to bend (even if the distance seems too far). Works for all parry tools.

                parry isn't bad. You have a lot more frames than you think you do. At least that's what I've found while playing these days. Slash is good for closing a gap against a PVP heal. Since bleed isn't that good in this game time attacks well. Katanas don't have much in poise damage. Doesn't you can't be aggressive it just means you've gotta get in at the right time.

                  Doing a lv60 swordmaster invasion build with this and an offhand simple infused caestus, Flynn’s ring, Cloranthy ring, ring of favor and life ring. Arguably the most fun I’ve had in pvp. Yes it’s technically a dex build so I’m “that guy” but I’m literally wearing rags and laying waste to armoured try hard r1 spamming gimp hosts left right n centre. 10/10 would build again

                    Infusing this with the burial gift, Fire Gem, will make the beginning of the game significantly easier for first time souls players.

                      To new players: this is an excellent weapon for those still learning the game. Its moveset isn’t complicated to use, but it’s hard to get the most out of. The more you use it, the more effective you will be. Infuse it with Sharp (the coal you need to do this is in Crucifixion Woods, just follow the right hand wall once you’re in the clear water area until you come to a door, follow the path to the end) and make sure you carry items to buff your weapon. This sword will see you through, and through its use you will learn spacing, timing and pacing in a fight, without having to actively train to learn these things.

                        Despite all the hype surrounding this weapon, I gotta say it's pretty bad for PvE. Does pitiful damage against common enemies and cannot even not break poise of the bowl throwers in undead settlement. +1 Uchi and you need at least 10 or more hits to take them out. Am I missing something ?

                          Does the Uchigatana have a secondary heavy? Cause i keep using the Heavy and it is going for a slash that's lower than the Light and consumes more FP than the Light and Parry.

                              Any suggestions? ;)

                                Its a hard item to acquire, therefore it is a reward item!

                                I just started my first ever playthrough on DS3 and opted for the uchi. Its tough to use but very fun!

                                It makes the rotting greatwood a bit easier with its 2 handed slashes, recommend for this fight

                                  At SL 71, 24 Dex, 10 Str, with leo ring, flynn's ring, hunter's ring and +10 Sharp infused uchigatana; my backstep+R1 counterattacks have done from 620 damage (unbuffed) up to 812 damage (charcoal pine resin) on other players.

                                  Only ~358 AR. And people never expect backsteps in DS3. At that level, most people don't invest enough in Vigor, and the properly timed backstep+R1 easily ends a fight or at the least puts you at a drastic health advantage. I'll probably experiment with the chaos blade to see if I can get up to 900 or more counterattack damage.

                                  Not sure if katana counterattacks are broken or if it has to do with headshots/attack placement, but it's a very underrated move at the moment.
