Default and full set projectile animation:
Part of the Akuma Slayer set.
Compared to other katana, the Kazekiri has a reduced fire rate, a slightly shorter range, and does less damage per shot than the majority of other top-tier katana. However, it makes up with it with a second shot. Its shots curve outwards before curving inwards again, which is usually not significant enough to make its shots miss.
Also worth noting is that weapon has the rare trait of piercing obstacles along with enemies. This can prove useful in areas that have a lot of obstacles in the way, or if one needs to take cover behind obstacles while continuing to fire at enemies.
When the entire Akuma Slayer Set is equipped, the weapon projectile changes to:
Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a feed power of 500.
Before Exalt Version 126.96.36.199 (Mar 2022), this item dealt 100-120 damage and had an 80% rate of fire.
Its name roughly translates to “Wind Shear” or “Wind Cutter” from the Japanese kanji “風切.”
The odd capitalisation used in the description is indeed how it is written in-game.
