Armiger weapons or Phantom Weapons are special items in Final Fantasy XV. They are made from souls of Noctis’ ancestors, the previous kings of Lucis. There are 13 of these Royal Arms, which are scattered across the map, hidden in royal tombs. Only Noctis can use them, and they’re extremely powerful. On the downside, using them drains your HP constantly. You’ll have to be careful while wielding them. Getting them all will unlock the Fateful Heir trophy. In this guide, we’re going to show you all Armiger locations in Final Fantasy XV, as well as their stats.
If you’re having trouble finding the tombs, be sure to check out our Royal Tomb Locations guide, which will give you precise directions to each crypt. Most of them are tied to main missions, but some are not, and you might have trouble finding them.
