The Weapons Monthlymagazines 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.
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.
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.
