The Vibrokatana, introduced in 2450 by the Draconis Combine, is a weapon of choice often used by DEST commandos in close combat. A deadly and elegant weapon, it operates on the same principle as the Vibrosword, with the blade vibrating at an extremely high frequency. Since its introduction, the vibrokatana has gained popularity with other Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units as it is stunningly effective even against battle armor.
