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.

The "treasure" of Trabia Garden can be found five steps south of the Gargoyle fountain, barely seen.

Weapons Monthly, 1st Issue[edit | edit source]

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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Squall is the only character to have a weapon in every issue of the magazine.
  • There is a "Weapons Monthly" magazine in the item shop at Meldacio Hunter HQ in Final Fantasy XV as an allusion to Final Fantasy VIII.
