Many video games, unashamedly, are power fantasies that allow us to raise all manner of awesome weapons into the sky and bring force justice and/or destruction. Whether that's swords, guns or something unconventional, great video games have great weapons.
There's a multitude of ways to get new and improved weapons in most games, depending on the context, but the best of them will make sure it's never too late to grab the ones you might've missed.
On the other end of the spectrum, some truly evil developers will put great gear in places that you can only reach up until a certain point or just the once.
Realising that you've missed valuable and even potentially ultimate weapons because you didn't even know they were there is a tough pill to swallow, especially for proud gamers who feel the need to see and do everything in a title.
You want to be that video game magpie and get your hands on every weapon in the game? By all means, you go right ahead... but the following weapons require you to be keen of mind, eagle-eyed and perhaps just ready to consult a walkthrough.
10. Satori - Cyberpunk 2077
The undeniable charm of Cyberpunk 2077 is in player choice; whether that’s who you are, the story you take and even the weapons you have at your side.
The katana weapon type tends to be a popular one and for good reason and these stylish blades are as quick and deadly in the world of Cyberpunk as they are in real life. There’s a good few to pick from but the Satori, the best katana in the game, actually appears in Cyberpunk's first act.
In the mission The Heist, players ascend to the hotel room of Yorinobu Arasaka and then eventually the objective will ask them to leave after a cutscene. Instead of doing as told however, players should turn on their axis and head into the corner of the room to find stairs that head up to the building’s roof.
There, players will be tasked with taking down the enemies waiting around an AV. Once they’re dispatched, players will be able to get their hands on the Satori katana.
It might seem at first like nothing too special as it actually reduces V’s base attack but with a critical damage stat of 500% it’s pretty much going to make the rest of the game a breeze compared to what would’ve happened if you’d missed it, which is very easy to do.
