The following is a list of weapons from Final Fantasy Tactics and the remake, The War of the Lions. The extra items introduced in the PSP version received from Multiplayer Mode will be unlocked after the player finishes the game in the mobile version. After the credits have finished rolling, the game will auto-save and all the PSP items will appear in the Poachers' Den. Multiplayer-exclusive weapons cannot be thrown with the Ninja's Throw command.

Some weapons are found as treasures on the battlefields with the Treasure Hunter ability. For the exact location on the grid, see the location article.

Axes[edit | edit source]

Axes can be wielded by Squires, Geomancers, and Onion Knights though any job can equip them if the character has equipped the ability Equip Axes of the Squire. While Axes have higher attack power and can deal more damage than weapons available at the same time, their damage is random and they can do much less than other weapons. Axes can be used with Dual Wield and Doublehand. Axes have a vertical range of 2 tiles up and 3 tiles down, and can be bought at castle Outfitters.

Poles[edit | edit source]

Poles can only be wielded by Arithmeticians, Mystics, and Onion Knights. They have a range of two, which allows the user to avoid counterattacks. Because their power is calculated using magickal attack, it allows Mystics to deal decent damage with physical attacks. Poles cannot be used with Dual Wield, but they be used with Doublehand. Poles have a vertical range of 3 tiles up and down, and can be bought at all Outfitters bar those in the Clockwork City of Goug and castles.

Other[edit | edit source]

Characters that do not have any weapons equipped will fight unarmed for minimal damage, and damage can be boosted by having a greater Bravery.

The damage formula is:

[1]

If they have the Brawler Support Ability, innate to the Monk job and also learned for 200 JP, damage is boosted, and the formula becomes:

A unit can be forced to fight Unarmed if they are struck by the Knight and Nightblade's Rend Weapon ability or by the Sword Saint, Divine Knight, and Delita's Ark Knight's Crush Weapon ability or if they had the weapon stolen from them. Unarmed has a vertical range of 2 up and 3 down.

Unused weapon types[edit | edit source]

Found within the weapons' graphical in-battle sprites within the game's data, there are two unused weapons among the various weapon and shield sprites. The first appears to be a boomerang, while the second is a doll. It is unknown if the doll would have been used as a weapon or a shield, as the graphics contain both intermixed together. The reason for why both does not appear within the final product is unknown, but it could be assumed that the developers could not make them return to the owner's hand after attacking a target much like how boomerangs behave or the doll walking back to the owner.
