Final Fantasy 15 Best Weapons locations

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.
▼Article Continues Below▼
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

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.

Cerberus sniper rifle

Cerberus is the only sniper rifle in Final Fantasy 15. It might not have great stats, but it’s definitely one of the best firearms in FFXV. This powerful scoped weapon allows you to zoom in and target specific points on your opponent’s body, but the weapon can be used only by Noctis. The weapon can be found in the Fort Vaullery Imperial Base, once you reach chapter 6. If you want to collect this hidden weapon we have a detailed screenshot guide Cerberus Sniper Rifle Location.

The Dominator is an extremely strong greatsword which can be found as a collectible in a spot north of Alstor Slough. You’ll have to complete the game for it to show up. It has 583 attack, adds 298 health to the user (Noct or Gladio) and increases dark resistance by 32%. The stats aren’t amazing, but it compensates by the amount of damage it does.

Dungeon Seal Door Weapons

Machinery Weapons

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.
