Solus Katana Mech Arm is an arm part mech component that can be collected after defeating the boss Swansong. It is the only mech arm that can be neither crafted nor purchased. It is also the only mech weapon with a power rating of 5.

This arm component can be equipped on either or both mech arm slots.

While equipped, the player can use the Solus Katana Mech Arm, while piloting their mech, to cause the mech to lunge forward and swing the weapon. Prior to the lunge, the mech extends the energy blade from its arm and slows to a near stop (if moving) for 0.5 seconds. Once wind-up is complete, the mech lunges in the direction of the attack and swings the blade, producing an energy swoosh and dealing 300 damage and strong knockback to enemies caught in the attack. The mech is invulnerable during the lunge. Afterward, during a 0.5 second cool-down period, the blade is retracted. Total time for the attack is 1.3 seconds, producing ~230 DPS.

Known Bug
Sewer Fly.png
In full planetary gravity, the blade gets stuck during the wind-up phase because mech velocity is not calculated correctly, resulting in an infinite loop. This loop can be broken by jumping the mech; at the apogee of the jump, the lunge will be triggered. This bug does not happen in weak gravity or 0G.
