If you have already started playing the game, you should know that the Uchigatana is a powerful katana found in the early areas of Dark Souls 3. This Katana styled weapon comes with a bleeding effect. You need to continue through the game and face Ludex Gundyr, the first Dark Souls 3 boss. You need to defeat him and continue.
Don’t enter the shrine. Instead, take the path to the left of the gate at the top of the hill and circle around the wall. You will spot a lone figure at the top of a few set of stairs. The enemy is tough and attacks quickly. You need to dodge his attacks and simply wait for him to hold his katana to the side. This is when you should make your move.
You need to strike and deal a few hits before you finally roll away before he starts to recover and launch his own set of attacks. Although the Uchigatana has low durability, the weapon causes bleeding besides normal damage.
Meanwhile, Dark Souls 3 is already available in Japan and some fans in the West have already started playing it through imports and walk-arounds. You can download the Japanese PlayStation 4 or English-language Xbox One version of the game. That being said, Bandai Namco warned that the Japanese version isn’t complete and it will remain so till the game launches worldwide next month.
Stay tuned for more updates on Dark Souls 3!
