This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of the weapon models.
Weapons are amongst the most recognizable Final Fantasy features. The heavily romanticized designs are the embodiment of the 'fantasy based on reality' philosophy that was used for Final Fantasy XV: real-life weaponry is the point of departure, but the lush ornamentation (inspired by various styles like baroque and rococo) belongs to the realm of fantasy.

Equip menu.

The following is a list of weapons in Final Fantasy XV. Most of the weapons were modified for the 1.02 patch. Most weapons besides the basic for each type had their Attack changed, and there were various other tweaks here and there.

The 1.20 patch adds character swap, allowing the player to control Noctis's allies in battle directly where their battle styles are identical to how they play in their downloadable episodes, meaning the player can't use their secondary arms or Elemancy.

Cid Sophiar offers a series of quests to upgrade some of the player's weapons in exchange for certain treasures. The later quests for Cid's upgrades require the player to complete a number of quests/hunts and rest for Cid to call Noctis about the completed weapon. The upgradable weapons were made sellable in patch 1.03, so the player should be careful to not sell them by accident.

Weapons picked up from the field don't often respawn like items and accessories usually do.

Equipping four weapons at once for the first time earns the Quadruple Threat achievement/trophy. Weapons carry over when using New Game Plus and chapter select, including royal arms (the player also gains a basic Engine Blade and Drain Lance). Royal arms are still "re-obtained" throughout the story, but a second copy won't be awarded. DLC, episode, and unique event weapons can only be obtained once, and all but the Garuda weapons will appear on all saves.

MechanicsEdit

Noctis can equip any weapon, with swords, royal arms, and the Ring of the Lucii being exclusive to him. The other three party members have a primary weapon at all times, and can equip a secondary weapon or magic. Noctis can equip four weapons at once and switch between them on-the-fly. When character-swapping, the battle system changes, and the player can't use the character's equipped Secondary Arm with the Attack command.

Different enemies are weak to different weapon types; when an enemy is weak to the damage, the damage numbers appear orange, and the numbers will be displayed purple if they resist it. Critical hits are displayed with bigger brighter orange numbers. Wielding different weapons triggers different link-strikes with party members. Most weapons can be warp-striked with, aside from magic, machinery, the Ring of the Lucii, and the Cerberus sniper rifle (they can still be used for point-warping, and all but machinery for free-warping). The Ring, Cerberus, and Magic have a quicker free-warp that covers slightly less distance and doesn't involve tossing a weapon.

All weapons have phase counters (attacking after phasing through an attack), all but machines have directional inputs to them (moving while attacking), and all but machines and royal arms have a delayed attack input (attacking, pausing briefly, then attacking again). Delayed attacks are a similar animation to a normal attack, albeit with a higher stagger and breaking rate. It is possible to swap weapons during this small window to perform the delayed attack with any weapon.

All attacks are either physical or magical in nature and each weapon type inflicts a specific type of damage. Royal arms deal non-elemental physical damage, but have a separate weapon type not shown in enemy weaknesses. The damage they deal is not typeless, but only the Dread Behemoth and Omega have resistances/vulnerabilities to them, every other enemy being neutral.

Damage = A * B * C * D * E
  • A = Base Damage
  • B = Target Defense (works as a percentage reduction)
  • C = Affinity Modifier (damage types)
  • D = Conditional Modifier(s) (unique to certain weapons)
  • E = Random Modifier (random number between 0.94 and 1.06)
A = (Str + Weapon Power + Level*3) * Attack Damage Modifier * 2

The Weapon Power of normal weapons is their attack value. The Weapon Power of (most) royal arms is Attack + Strength (thus Str is counted twice).

Attack Damage Modifier (ADM) is a hidden multiplier unique for every attack, and thus some weapons can do more or less damage than their stats would suggest. E.g. Sword of the Tall royal arm has a poor ADM on all of its attacks, while normal greatswords have some of the highest ones.

Some weapons have Conditional Modifiers, such as how Hyperion deals 15% more damage for every additional enemy on the field up to a cap of +100% damage.

Weapons Edit

Swords Edit

Swords-ffxv-dmgtypeicon

One-handed swords are exclusive to Noctis. They have a fast attack animation, and are often considered good aerial weapons as they can be used for airstepping (However, all weapons with an aerial combo of more than one attack airstep by swapping to a sword/polearm mid-combo before swapping back.) One-handed swords trigger link-strikes. Armiger points accumulation multiplier: x1.5.

Forward + Attack: Deals a thrusting attack; holding the button causes Noctis to continue thrusting. Decently strong, has forward momentum, and resets the blitz combo.

Side + Attack: Noctis performs a sidestep followed by a slash.

Back + Attack: Noctis performs a backflip slash. Holding the button links into air combos. It is useful for evading. The backflip animation has invincibility frames.

Many of the weapons share models. Originally only three of the models were used as the weapon Noctis hangs from when point-warping: Engine Blade/Ultima Weapon, Broadsword (shared with Air Step Sword and Soul Saber) and Blazefire Saber; if Noctis had a different weapon equipped, the point-warp animation showed him using the Broadsword model. After patch 1.23, all one-handed swords appear in hanging animations.

Greatswords Edit

Greatswords-ffxv-dmgtypeicon
Slow, yet powerful, two-handed swords. Easy to make enemies flinch.

Two-handed swords can be equipped by Noctis and by Gladiolus as his primary arm. They are the slowest weapon for Noctis, but are powerful and have a better chance of breaking enemies, or making them topple over and become vulnerable. Armiger points accumulation multiplier: x2. Greatswords cannot be used for airstepping, but they are good for link-striking, the strongest combos being specifically with greatswords. When blindsiding an enemy, or when an enemy is charging for a parryable attack, the player can quickly swap for a greatsword to do the best damage with a possible link-strike. Greatsword warp-strikes are also quite fast.

Forward + Attack: Changes the combo depending on when pressed.

Delayed Attack: Delaying an input mid combo activates Tempest, an area-of-effect spin attack. Ironically, it isn't as staggering as other weapons' delayed attacks.

Back + Attack: Holding it charges Noctis's greatsword and releases to do a strong slash.

Attacking directly above a target has Noctis descend upon them, similar to when using a polearm.

Polearms Edit

Polearms-ffxv-dmgtypeicon

Polearms can be equipped by Noctis and Ignis as his secondary arm. Polearms can be airstepped with and thus wielded while midair, as homage to Dragoons (However, all weapons with an aerial combo of more than one attack airstep by swapping to a sword/polearm mid-combo before swapping back.). Polearms trigger link-strikes.

Forward + Attack: Noctis performs a thrusting attack, and at the end of the "thrust" he will do an airstep that can link into a plunging attack depending on positioning.

Side + Attack: Noctis swings the polearm in a wider area instead of stabbing with it.

Back + Attack: Holding it has Noctis perform a backflip attack that can lead into an air combo. If the player releases the thumbstick before leading into an air combo, Noctis will perform the Full Thrust technique that was seen in Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae.

If attacking an enemy directly from above with a spear, Noctis can descend upon them like a Dragoon.

Flayer's passive ability is to boost Noctis's combo finisher. It boosts four attacks in its moveset:

  • The Forward+Attack move
  • The final attack in its basic combo. While other spears end their basic combo with a jump into the air, Flayer's ends with a strong thrust.
  • The final thrust of the Side+Attack combo
  • The final hit of full thrust (Down+Attack).

Flayer does not boost the "Dragoon-like" plunging attack.

Daggers Edit

Daggers-ffxv-dmgtypeicon

Daggers can be equipped by Noctis and Ignis as his primary arm. They are the fastest weapon for Noctis, and also have a fast "free-warping" animation (warping without a "destination"). Armiger points accumulation multiplier: x1.5 Daggers are good for assaulting single targets, especially ones in Vulnerable state. Daggers cannot be used for air combos or link-strikes when wielded by Noctis. If the daggers inflict a status ailment, Ignis can inflict enemies with it with his Analyze skill (doesn't work for Vigilantes' Stop). The aerial attack sends Noctis forward a decent distance.

Forward + Attack: Noctis performs a double stab attack. Resets combos so the player can combo infinitely without performing a finisher.

Side + Attack: Noctis steps around an enemy. Can be used to dodge. Noctis will do a slash when the player stops quickstepping. Alternatively, if the player releases the thumbstick and flicks it again quickly, Noctis will perform an airstep instead of slashing, allowing for a seamless transition to air combos.

Back + Attack: Noctis will step away and start slinging daggers as a ranged attack. If the player builds enough distance while holding Back + Attack, Noctis will perform a dropkick.

Firearms Edit

Firearms-ffxv-dmgtypeicon

Firearms can be equipped by Noctis and Prompto as his primary arm. Firearms never trigger link-strikes when wielded by Noctis, but are the only weapons that can be used while in cover. When used by Noctis, he will fire eight bullets before needing to reload, but the reload animation can be avoided by switching weapons. Noctis is vulnerable while reloading, and cannot reload in mid-air. Ranged attacks deal less damage the further away the target is, and guns are not particularly powerful, but the ability to take cover in safe places is sometimes useful. Bullets also cannot pierce through allies. Parry attacks fire multiple shots.

The Cerberus firearm is unique and allows for manual aiming. When aimed in first-person, it excels heavily at breaking off enemy appendages, head-shotting imperial units, and destroying magitek armors' weapons. Due to its nature as a sniper rifle, the Cerberus uses a different control scheme from Noctis's other weapons. As a result, Noctis cannot warp-strike, lock-on, or parry attacks. It has no aerial attack, phase counter, or delayed attack. It cannot scan enemies with Libra.

Forward, Back and Side + Attack: Roll and shoot.

Shields Edit

Shields-ffxv-dmgtypeicon

Shields can be equipped by Noctis and by Gladiolus as his secondary arm, although shields' passive abilities only trigger for Noctis. The passive abilities that rely on taking elemental damage do not trigger from "friendly fire" from the player's own Elemancy.

Shields' Armiger points accumulation multiplier is x1.5. While using a shield, Noctis will hold a small sword in his other hand, and throw the sword forward to warp rather than the shield itself. Similar to greatswords, they may not provide the best DPS, but can be used to stagger and break enemies. Their most useful function is to defend; Noctis doesn't phase when he has a shield, and thus can still defend in Stasis when phasing is unavailable. Blocking with a shield costs only 3 MP, which is significantly less than the default cost of phasing (15 MP), and can even block some weaker projectiles for free. Blocking can potentially stagger attackers or push Noctis backwards. It's more MP-efficient to swap to shields and defend, and then swap out again to attack. The player can use Airslip to dodge enemy attacks in midair with the guard button with the shield equipped even when in Stasis.

Shields never trigger link-strikes when wielded by Noctis. Blocking a light attack, pausing, and then attacking makes Noctis charge forward with super armor. Phase counters work by swapping to the shield before counterattacking. While swords, greatswords, daggers, and spears will make Noctis warp forward when approaching his target from a distance, he instead charges forward with his shield, though it doesn't block attacks.

Forward + Attack: Holding it makes Noctis include the sword in his blitz combo.

Back + Attack: When near an enemy, Noctis throws his shield forward, striking enemies behind and providing good aoe around Noctis himself. Great for staggering and breaking enemies.

Royal Arms Edit

Special weapons fit for a king, each boasting its own unique properties.

The royal arms are weapons of the previous kings of Lucis. They can be equipped by Noctis. Each have a relatively high attack power and give great stat boosts, but using them as normal weapons drains Noctis's health when he attacks with them (except parrying). If Noctis's HP is below the amount of HP a certain royal arm requires, he will enter Danger state. Royal arms deal physical damage and have a unique weapon type that is not shown in enemy weaknesses; while they don't deal typeless damage, it is very rare for enemies to be resistant or vulnerable to royal arms. They cannot trigger link-strikes, except with Iris and chocobos.

The royal arms are wielded at once during Armiger and Armiger Unleashed where Noctis doesn't lose health from using them. Learning Armiger Chain in the Ascension lets Noctis's party members join in a group attack where they momentarily wield the royal arms as well. Every royal arm has a unique moveset, some based on regular weapons. Collecting all arms earns the Faithful Heir achievement/trophy.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearances Edit

NieR: Automata Edit

A magical blade used by a royal family.
—Weapon description

The Engine Blade appears as part of a collaboration with Final Fantasy XV. It is a small sword-type weapon that can be found in the Abandoned Factory area. If the weapon is fully upgraded, it alters the player character's dodge to resemble Noctis's phase ability and changes the game's damage display font style to match the one from Final Fantasy XV.

Assassin's Creed: OriginsEdit

Assassins-Creed-Origins-Crossover

Crossover spoils.

In December 2017, a Final Fantasy crossover quest was added to Assassin's Creed: Origins. The player can get a "chocobo camel" hybrid as a legendary mount, Noctis's Ultima Blade as a sword and the Ziedrich as a shield.

TriviaEdit

  • When the player changes weapon when Noctis is idle, he shows it off with a twirl, flick or spin but with the Trident of the Oracle, he has no flare and only stares at it solemnly.
