Final Fantasy XV Best Starting WeaponsAs soon as you get some fuel in your car, you can head north and get the Bioblaster. It’s a machinery weapon that deals a lot of damage and creates a poison mist. You can give it to Prompto, which will make him a force to be reckoned with.
As for the rest of your crew, they’re going to have to wait just a little longer. Your best source of quality early game weapons is the weapon vendor in Lestallum. As soon as you can leave the Leide area, travel to Lestallum and talk to him. He has a kiosk in the eastern part of town.
He’ll ask you to finish Ace of Carpace, a relatively low-effort fetch quest. It’s in your best interest to do it – he’s going to give you a discount if you do. Once you’re done with that, take a look at his wares and get the following:
- Noctis: Flame Tongue has 117 attack, does fire damage and costs only 560 gil.
- Gladiolus: Hardedge has 224 attack, adds 150 HP and costs 1050 gil.
- Ignis: Ice Spear has 133 attack, does ice damage and costs 1050 gil.
- Prompto: Mythril Pistol has 96 attack, improves magic and is sold for 420 gil.
Note: To get the “Ace of Carpace” – weapon vendor quest, you’ll need to finish the quest “A Stroll for Two”. After you come to Lestallum for the first time and spend a night in the hotel, you’ll be asked by Iris to go and see the sights with her. Accept this offer to start the quest “A Stroll for Two”.
