Final Fantasy 15 has some special weapons for Noctis called Royal Arms. These are special weapons that give unique bonus, or overwhelming power, with drawbacks.

Half of them are obtained just by playing through the story, but the rest are optional. I’m going to go over where to find each Royal Arm, and the stats so you can decide which you want to use.

This guide will go over everything about Royal Arms in Final Fantasy 15 including:

  • Royal Arms Info – Brief info on Royal Arms and what they do.
  • Royal Arms Locations – Where to find all 13 Royal Arms.
  • Royal Arms Stats – The stats of each Royal Arm.

Royal Arms Info

The Royal Arms are weapons only Noctis can wield, and don’t always fill one of the other weapon types in the game. For example there are Bow and Throwing Star Royal Arms.

You lose HP each time you attack with a Royal Arm, but it is a small amount. You will want to keep an eye on it though because you could end up killing yourself if used at low health.

Each one also gives certain benefits, such as increased resistances or high attack power. They could also give other drawbacks such as slow speed, or reduced resistances.
