"Quickly cut down enemies in melee range in third person. Roll to close distance and avoid gunfire."
— In-game description.


In Black Ops 4, the Shadow Blade was added during Operation Spectre Rising. It is a Ninjatō style katana that when activated will force the camera into third person. Whilst active, crouch is replaced by a roll function and enemies within striking distance and line of sight will have a ping placed over their body, attacking with this active will aim the attack towards the pinged target. It can also be aimed with, allowing for the ability to throw the Shadow Blade.

"Swifly kill enemies at close range, while also detecting hostiles within the sound of any smoke granade."
— In-game description.


The Shadow Blade returns as an Operator Skill in Call of Duty: Mobile. It was added during the Season 8 The Forge update.

When it was introduced it was called Katana, but the name and model is changed in Season 9 Conquest update, and it became similar to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Shadow Blade.
