Not to be confused with Epic Fail Katana or Epic Katana (Item).
"It's a trap! Grabbing the katana might result in death if you don't move out of the way. Katanas will start raining once the sword is touched. When this is happening, make sure you look up rather than hiding underneath cover, because the katanas will go through anything."
When the disaster starts, a 4x4 brick pedestal that holds the Epic Katana will spawn around the front of the house, similar to where and how Illumina spawns.
The katana will remain harmless unless another player touches the katana, which will cause the Epic Katana to disappear from the pedestal. After the katana disappears, numerous massive insta-kill Epic Katanas will start spawning and raining down from the sky, falling through any and all terrain until the round ends.
- There are two common methods to survive this disaster:
- Like what the memo says, shelters offer zero protection from the falling katanas.
- In fact, it makes the disaster even more dangerous, as it prevents the player from spotting any katanas about to fall through them.
