Best Weapons in FFXV guide shows all the ultimate weapons acquired in the end game. End game weapons give a significant boost in attack damage, but some lack the additional stats. This is why the Armiger weapons (royal arms) are the perfect choice for the stats boosts. Arguably the best combination of primary arms for full power is having three armiger weapons and a regular one.
Armiger weapons are weapons of previous kings. Many of them are obtainable through the main story, but some of them you can miss. The best thing about Armiger weapons are their stats boosts. They can increase resistances to various types of damage, raw physical damage and more. To get the Armiger stats boosts, they only need to be sheathed. The downside of the Armiger weapons is that they can only be used by Noctis (because they are royal arms), and they also drain his health bar when he attacks.

Dungeon Seal Door Weapons
Once you are at the end of the game, you can talk to Ezma. This old lady is found in Meldacio Hunter HQ Outpost, in the northwestern part of the map. She gives you a sealed doors key. These doors are found within the dungeons. Once opened, they reveal an entrance to the hardest part of the given dungeon. At the end of these dungeon parts you can collect the ultimate weapon. These weapons are not royal arms (can be used by anyone), and they have a great damage output.

Although these weapons can be acquired even at the start of the game, the biggest value they add are their special attacks and the fact they are ranged weapons. If you equip Prompto with them, he can use their power without your interference. Some of the machinery like Gravity Well performs an attack called Gravity Sphere. This special attack resembles the Ascension talent called Gravisphere. This way you save 26 attribute points.
There is also an one more thing. You can upgrade them, to make them even better. This is the endgame goal for them. You can find these upgrades and the name of the items needed for their completion on our main FFXV link page: Strategy Guides & Walkthroughs.
