The Thermal Katana is brand-new in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0, and it'll catch your eye right away with its fiery design. The Thermal Katana isn't all looks, though, as this Tier 5/Iconic Katana can cut through Cyberpunk 2077 enemies like a hot knife through butter.

If this burning Katana sounds like something you want in your arsenal, this primer will outline where in the game you need to go to find and get the Thermal Katana.

Getting the Thermal Katana from the Disasterpiece Main Job

The easiest way to get the Thermal Katana is to grab it during the Disasterpiece Main Job. During this quest, you will ride with Judy to the old power plant in Charter Hill. As you search for Evelyn, you must navigate through the sublevels of the building, eliminating any scavengers in your way.

Explore the building thoroughly, and eventually, you will come across a room in Sector 2 with a furnace in the center of it. Approach the furnace, and you will find Errata, the Tier 5/Iconic Thermal Katana.

If you have already completed the Disasterpiece Main Job, you can still get the Thermal Katana. To do so, you must return to the Electric Corporation building, which you can get to easily by fast-travelling to Republic East in the Santo Domingo district.

When you go back to the Electric Corporation building, the door to the room with the furnace will be fastened shut. To get to the Thermal Katana, you must take a left and enter through a different door with "KEEP DONORS SEDATED" graffitied above it. To unlock this door, you need Level 20 Technical Ability.
