Playa can use the Samurai Sword whilst driving any motorcycle, slicing opponents whilst driving by them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Cheat for this weapon in Saints Row 2 is #948.
  • The range of the Samurai Sword is exceeded only by the Chainsaw.
  • Another use for the Samurai Sword is being able to knock vehicles out of stuck positions or if done fast enough, a motorcycle flipped upside down.
  • This is one of the only weapons that can block, along with the Machete and bare fists.
  • While the damage from a single blow is the same as that of the Knife, landing 3 hits with the Samurai Sword results in a instant kill animation, similar to the Chainsaw. There are different killing animations when slashing from the left or right in different orders.
