As people begin to delve further into Final Fantasy 15, they’re starting to find the Royal Arms weapons. This article covers all Royal Arms locations in Final Fantasy 15 so you can find these powerful weapons. If you’re unfamiliar with Royal Arms, these are the weapons Noctus and his crew find in the tombs of fallen kings. While they are very powerful weapons, they deplete Noctus’ health when used, so you have to be very careful in battle and pay close attention to Noctus’ health bar.

There are 13 total Royal Arms in Final Fantasy 15. You can find the first two while you play through Chapter 2 in the main story. They are the Sword of the Wise and Axe of the Conqueror. After that you may have some difficulty finding the weapons, so we’ll be adding more and more information to this article over time to make that task easier for you. You can find more in-depth articles in our Final Fantasy 15 guide hub.
