Im not a weeb, but the katana is very cool and op in smash melee
Katana is good because of the swing rate and damage, chainsaw is literally just an axe
Melees kinda suck now
Chainsaw is just an upgraded Axe.
The Katana is kind of it's own weapon, so definitely katana.
It's got a bad reputation because of the people who use it (Usually Salty and Toxic people) but it's a good weapon if you can get past that.
mfw (my face when) people think katana is better but chainsaw has higher damage and max hits per swing so more damage output
edit: katana isn't bad and its a cool and fun melee but that doesnt mean it performs better than chainsaw imo
Katana Is 13k cheaper though
darien what are you smoking? It's literally the most expensive melee in the game and one of the most expensive secondaries. Also, the chainsaw does 145 damage per second, while the katana does about 340 damage per second. against a prestige 2 or higher player, the katana would be a LOT better, and yeah, it doesn't instakill a survivor, but it sure can do a heck of a lot more dmg/p second, and if you know how to use it it can counter people with chainsaw (ms)
in gamemodes like campaign or pve i still prefer katana for the exact reasons.
money does not affect the performance of it whatsoever so kinda obsolete point
sure, the katana can do more damage per sec but thats only considering a single target, the chainsaw can wipe out hordes faster than katana
chainsaw - 145 x 5 (max hits) = 725 damage per sec (maximum output)
katana - 340 x 2 (max hits) = 680 damage per sec (maximum output)
katana excels at decimating single or few targets but the chainsaw can instakill a lot more targets and a lot more efficiently
also all ffa gamemodes including melee smash have prestige hp removed so yea (unless its a vip server where prestige hp is enabled then i guess katana proves superior in that case)
If you are a disgusting tryhard, you should go for katana.
But if you are a true gamer with skills, then go for chainsaw.
