The katana of a berserker, by its name.
 
The thick, shiny black blade cuts exquisitely. Its origins and owner are unknown, but at some point the blade became known by this name.

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite
  • The shortest of the Katanas.
  • While trying to get this item, resting at the bonfire while the phantom is in your world will cause him to despawn, so checking if the Phantom is there is always required.
  • MUST be in Bell Covenant for the Mad Warrior to have a chance at spawning, although he will never despawn.
  • Like other NG+ phantoms, the Mad Warrior only drops one piece of equipment, and sometimes doesn't drop anything at all.
  • If you want the best possible chance of getting the Berserker Blade, you'll want to increase your item drop rate as much as possible.
  • Does not require NG+/Bonfire Ascetic (does significantly increase drop rate).
  • It's strong attack has an incredibly long wind up and is for the most part inferior to other kantanas' delayed thrusting attack and delayed slashing attack.
  • At 99 DEX and 81 STR Berserker Blade begins to surpass Washing Pole's AR. At 99 DEX and 99 STR it surpasses Blacksteel Katana's AR by 1.

      I fixed the "yeeting" To resting. Also just got super lucky yesterday and got the mask and sword as my first 2 drops from the Mad Warrior in 30 min of farming no less. There is an RNG God apparently! LOL!

        "While trying to get this item, yeeting at the bonfire while the phantom is in your world will cause him to despawn"

        Yeeting at the bonfire, huh? Whether this is vandalism or just a typo I don't know, but it should probably be changed to "resting"
