The Katana is located at the southernmost green blip on the eastern half of the map. Reading the map in-game can be confusing, so we have provided an image for you to reference from. Check the yellow circle and arrow on the GPS in the image above to see the exact location of this spot. The entrance of this area looks exactly like a cave, but the interior suggests it's an underground bunker.

Keep in mind, to go inside this bunker and reach the Katana, you'll need the Maintenance Keycard. We recommend you craft or find other weapons prior, as this bunker has several mutant enemies. So come prepared.

After you enter the bunker and enter a specific door, a cutscene will play out. When you awake again, go down one flight of stairs and navigate to the second open door on the right to the room shown in the image above to find the Katana.
