The Weapons Monthly magazines are items in Final Fantasy VIII, found in various places around the world of Final Fantasy VIII. Each magazine contains information about various models of weapons, which can be upgraded. Even though weapons can be upgraded without the magazine in which it is mentioned, it is useful, as it gives the player information on how many items are needed for the upgrade.
Weapons Monthly, March Issue Edit
Weapons Monthly, April Issue Edit
Weapons Monthly, May Issue Edit
Found in the Deling City Sewers. Located behind the Presidential Residence, this portion of the sewers can be accessed by either Rinoa or Squall during their respective trips into the residence. The area where the magazine is obtained becomes inaccessible after climbing up to the Presidential Residence roof with Squall.
Weapons Monthly, June Issue Edit
Weapons Monthly, July Issue Edit
Weapons Monthly, August Issue Edit
The "treasure" of Trabia Garden can be found five steps south of the Gargoyle fountain, barely seen.
Unlike the other Weapons Monthlies that become available in the order of the months, the August issue can be picked up before the one for July. It is possible this is a mistake, and the issues were intended to be in the opposite order.
Weapons Monthly, 1st Issue Edit
Can be found in the Lunatic Pandora Laboratory during the last Laguna dream sequence. The player needs to go back into the Lunatic Pandora Laboratory and pick it up from the floor. The magazine is also sold in Karen's Shop in Esthar City with Tonberry's Familiar ability learned.
