Of the few melee options available to you in The Forest, the Katana is undoubtedly the best melee weapon you can get. Not only is it fast enough to take down mutants, but you can also prevent them from even retaliating due to how insanely fast it is.
That said, if you want to get your hands on this weapon, you’ll need to find it inside a cave first.
How to Find the Katana in The Forest
To get the Katana, you need to head over to Cave 1 – Dead Cave which isn’t that far away from the river. The entrance to the cave isn’t obvious at first, but you can easily spot it with the bright yellow rope that leads downward.
Simply climb down the rope, head straight until you find another rope, and climb upward. Then, go left while following the wooden boards that are laid on the ground. Simply follow the path until you come across a room containing a lot of loots.
There, you’ll find a Yakuza corpse and the Katana right beside him. Simply loot the Katana and you’ll have it automatically in your inventory.

Genshin Impact: All Primal Embers Locations in Try to Open the Coffin
Opening the coffin in The Secret of Al-Ahmar questline in Genshin Impact requires you to locate and release four Primal Embers.
In Genshin Impact, players can now obtain the questline “Golden Slumber,” which will have players trying to open the tomb of the late Scarlet King, King Deshret.
To do this, players will have to release four Primal Embers and follow them to their corresponding Primal Torches within the Mausoleum of King Deshret.
These Primal Embers are found fairly easily within the Mausoleum of King Deshret, and we’ll tell you all locations in “Try to Open the Coffin,” so you can unlock the secrets of the Scarlet King.
Take the stairs upward to the right-hand side of the main room. Then, take the far left corridor behind the trap mechanism there. Keep moving down the corridor until you reach the room with the Seelie.
Take another left into a new corridor, where you will swing yourself up to the upper level (Four-Leaf Sigil) towards the direction of the mural there. ‘Release’ the first Primal Ember here, and follow it to light the first Primal Torch.
Take the stairs on the right-hand side of the main room. This time, take the far-right corridor that is near the trap mechanism. You’ll then need to open the door with the Blue Book mechanic in front of it.
After this, follow down the corridor and take the right-hand path. Again, look up towards the mural and swing yourself to the upper level. Release the Primal Ember here and follow it to the second Primal Torch.
Take the stairs to the left-hand side of the main room. Then, head over into the right corridor. On your right side, take the first path. Head towards the mural and glide using the wind currant to land on the higher platform level. Release the third Primal Ember here and guide it to the third Primal Torch.
Take the stairs to the left-hand side of the main room. Head instead toward the left corridor. Keep an eye out for the mural on the left-hand side and swing yourself up to the upper level using Four-Leaf Sigil. Here you can release the fourth and final Primal Ember.
Some guides may indicate the Primal Embers done in different order, which doesn’t matter – as long as you are able to release all four, you’ll be able to complete the objective and quest.
After you’re located all four Primal Embers at their respective locations and released them to their Primal Torches, a cutscene will be played involving the opening of the coffin.
