Final Fantasy 7 Remake Weapon Abilities Guide

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Weapon Abilities Guide
Weapons have latent abilities in FF7R. This Final Fantasy 7 Remake Weapon Abilities Guide tells you where to find each type of weapon, the weapon abilities associated with the weapon, and how you can unlock the latent power of the weapons to make them permanent abilities.

Once you reach Seventh Heaven and have Tifa escort you around town, you’ll eventually pick up some mercenary work taking down some monsters. Once these are cleared out, and after you have delivered the Water Filters, you can speak with the Weapon Shop owner to buy and sell weapons. Weapons that you equip earn proficiency over time. Once a weapon is fully proficient, the ability it offers is unlocked permanently, whether the weapon is equipped or not.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
