The Katana is the newest operator skill in Call of Duty: Mobile.

The Katana switches the player to a third-person perspective when activated. Players equipped with it will be able to lock onto enemies and pounce on them from a short distance. The deadly sword takes down enemies with a single swing. It can even lock onto enemies inside a shroud of smoke.
