There are a variety of weapons for your party members in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Weapons work a bit differently in this game, as not only can they change stats, but they will change the abilities that the character can use. This adds a deeper level to the weapons, as you may want to use one move over the other prompting you to switch to a weapon you found much earlier in the game. The guide below goes over every weapon in the game, what ability it activates, and where to find it.

Instead of Weapon Cores, weapons in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth gain Weapon Skills as your Weapon Level improves.
