New Combat Weapon: The Katana
Minecraft should have more weapons and each weapon should have their own unique capabilities. For me, I think that the Katana would be a good addition and here are the stats describing why.
Damage (each tier is .5 damage point weaker than their sword counterpart in the combat snapshots)
- Wood - 3.5 damage points
- Stone - 3.5 damage points
- Gold - 3.5 damage points
- Iron - 4.5 damage points
- Diamond - 5.5 damage points
- Netherite - 6.5 damage points
- Faster(but not too fast) than a sword
- Speed remains the same regardless of the weapon's tier
Recipe: The recipe is the normal sword recipe but in a diagonal line
- Katana critical hits are more powerful than the standard critical hit damage
Just like in real life, katanas are made to be fast and deadly weapons but if they're faster and stronger than a sword in Minecraft, then that would defeat the purpose of anyone using a normal sword in PVP and PVE. According to Mojang, they don't want to add features that remove entire gameplay, and I don't want the katana to be one of those features. That's why its base damage is weaker, but deals more damage upon a critical attack, keeping the fast and deadly vibe to it. It also opens up more strategy to combat, making you decide if you want a sturdy sword that has more attack power or a fast katana than has powerful critical hits.
