I got the katana but can’t use it in BR I can equip it but not attack with it?


I got the katana too but for br not multiplayer, I thought it was for both.


I got the katana but can’t unlock it or even find where it is and have completely finished the challenge


I have checked in melee section and still no katana. It’s strange the game never showed the little animated thing it does when you complete a challenge. If I go to sharpen skills challenge it shows it completed? I’m at a loss here. Do you think it unlocks automatically after the time left until the challenge is over has expired?


Same not knowing why:(


Bro same here, i also finished the event and got the katana. But its showing it only in BR not MP. I will attach an ss.


Melee > base melee> gunsmith > select blueprint

Ryan Cress

This 100% you have to select the basic knife and then select gunsmith and bring up the custom blueprint…. I don’t know why it doesn’t have its own tab like the ax, bat, or sickle… The ice pick is in the same place as the katana


Which ice pick


I cant find the event of the katana where do i find it
