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.
