Cloud and his companions all have very diverse combat backgrounds in the original Final Fantasy VII, and as such, each character prefers to use a particular type of weapon to compliment their fighting style. Designing the characters this way allowed the developers to create and include a wide assortment of weapons for the characters to wield—there are over 80 different weapons, with each one having a unique appearance.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade seems to plan on following a similar trend, as there are already 31 weapons available for players to try out. Cloud, Barret, Tifa, and Aerith each have access to six weapons, while Yuffie has four different weapons to choose from, and Sonon has three. It can be a bit tough to find all of them, though, since quite a few are hidden away in specific shops or treasure chests. So, in order to help, we’ve put together a list of all weapon locations in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade.
