How to get the Katana in Dead Island: Riptide, and also how to select your own Katana stats and name. Also, a trick to get unlimited Katanas :D

HOW TO SELECT YOUR OWN KATANA STATS:

- Enter Stan's house
- Run to the Katanas on the wall
- Look at their stats
- Run back to the entrance, do not exit
- Run back to the Katanas
- The stats and name will have changed
- Rinse and repeat until you get the Katana that you want!

Katana stats will vary for your level, but I have done this none stop for around half hour at level 58, the stats varied with 1700 being the most common, but all the way to a gold 2200 popping up, which is now my current weapon :D

UNLIMITED KATANA TRICK:

- Enter Stan's House
- Run to the Katanas
- Collect them both
- Exit Stan's House
- Re-Enter Stan's House
- Collect more Katanas
- Rinse and repeat!
- There is a shop right next to Stan's House - Use this trick for unlimited money!

I have tested this with both the ER quest in progress and completed. Simply exiting and re-entering the house will make the Katanas respawn on the wall. Just collect them, leave the house, re-enter and go ahead and sell them to the shop next door. I haven't seen a Katana sell less than 1100 yet. Note that the infected also re-spawn including walkers, infected, a thug and a suicider.

Hope this helps! :D

Great trick for Xian users! Katanas are by far the most powerful bladed weapons in the game.
