FFVIII Magazine Item Symbol.png

Weapons Monthly First Issue.

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.

Some magazines can be purchased in Esthar's Book Store, but may need the Guardian Force Tonberry's Familiar ability to appear in the shop list.

Magazines[edit | edit source]

Weapons Monthly, March Issue[edit | edit source]

Elvoret battle.

Found at the top of Dollet communications tower after defeating Elvoret. The Elvoret drops the magazine upon defeat.

Weapons Monthly, April Issue[edit | edit source]

Squall's new room.

Found on a table in Squall's new dorm room at Balamb Garden, after the SeeD ball.

Weapons Monthly, May Issue[edit | edit source]

Deling Sewers.

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. If the player did not get it then, the door that connects this section with the rest of the sewers is open after the party escapes D-District Prison, thus the magazine can still be obtained later on.

Weapons Monthly, June Issue[edit | edit source]

Missile Base.

Found after defeating the BGH251F2 at the Missile Base. The machine drops the magazine upon defeat.

Weapons Monthly, July Issue[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

Weapons Monthly First Issue from FFVIII Remastered.png

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.
