Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Tatsu is both the first and only two-handed Nikana type melee weapon currently in-game.
  • 断つ (tatsu) means "to sever".
  • A two handed Katana is called Nodachi or Ōdachi
  • Tatsu wasn't released alongside RevenantIcon272.png Revenant's back in Update 23.5 due to the delay of Melee 3.0 changes.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Hotfix 24.6.2

  • The Tatsu Soul Swarm (Revenant) projectiles now have a lifetime of 5 seconds.

Update 24.6

  • Kills add charges (up to 5 max) that release seeking projectiles (same amount as charges) on slide attacks to stun enemies.
  • Having a ‘signature’ weapon now actually benefits you!
    • Tatsu: Charge cap is 9 when wielded by Revenant.

Update 24.5

  • Removed an unintended projectile launch on the 2nd charge attack of the Tatsu. This feature (as many have already determined) is unfinished, and will be revisited in the near future. Possibly tied to a certain Warframe...

Update 24.4

  • Introduced.

Last updated: Update 24.5
