How to use Elemental Katana Attacks in Shadow Warrior 3

Slice and dice elemental style!

There are plenty of ways to take out your enemies in Shadow Warrior 3. Lo Wang has access to numerous firearms and, of course, his katana, The Dragontail. But you may not know that you can use Elemental attacks with your katana in Shadow Warrior 3.

To use Elemental Katana Attacks, you must press Left Stick and hold Right Bumper and wait for the meter that appears to fill. You can see which Elemental Attack Lo Wang will use by the effect on the blade.

To get Elemental Katana Attacks in Shadow Warrior 3, you must upgrade the Dragontail to the second tier. It will cost one point for the first tier and two points for the second tier. Once you have upgraded the Dragontail twice, Lo Wang can perform Elemental Katana Attacks.

These severely upgrade the power of Lo Wang's katana and are great for taking out enemies that rush into your face. We found the ice Elemental Attack to be particularly good against the Shogai, especially the explosive ones.
