Re - add the Katana !
While many weapons are disallowed for obtainment as a player, I do find the Katana to be unjustly treated, It indeed has an ability to insta-kill people however triggering that ability is outweighed by it's cons.
To insta-kill with a katana you need to attack a player in punching distance with a certain slice at a certain angle of the back to instantly kill the player. Now I do agree that this is overpowered but it is also hard to achieve, for example you can only perform this on a guy that's super still and dumb or is willing to die.
Killing with the Katana is not an OP feature, performing the kill requires effort, which takes time, time in which someone can easily draw away from you and gun you down, trust me it's not that easy to have someone jump into your face and start slashing a sword which not only makes you completely open to fire but also stops your movement. Katanas can also be added at a good price at gunshops/melee weapon sellers for like $8000 to prevent overuse
Adding the Katana back will include fun Katana 1 v 1 Events or Duals which are highly fun and utilize the Insta-kill feature, it also requires skill and is a cool type of event, it will give the LWS guys one more thing to do, not to mention Air Katana Duels or other events which are possible! Adding the Katana will also help unofficial and soon to come groups which will be based around it, it's an amazing weapon that isn't even overpowered, someone can just draw a CS, start walking away and gun you down in a matter of seconds!! IT is NOT overpowered.
Moreover if people agree with me that Katanas are good enough to be added and still underpowered, a bullet block/deflect feature can also be added which deflects any bullets shot above the crotch at a person who is blocking through the katana, now of course someone can just close the distance and circle kill him with an uzi or a sawed off or another person can snipe/shoot him from behind, it will give the weapon a fun use!
Please leave your feedback below, I look forward to Katana Duels if you guys agree!
