Granblue Fantasy Relink: 6 Best Weapons + Locations

I have played Granblue Fantasy Relink for about 15+ hours now and I am certain enough to say that these are the best weapons you can find and forge!

There are a total of 114 weapons in Granblue Fantasy Relink. These weapons are divided into different sections and different characters. Since there are so many of them I found it hard to pick one and label it as the best. The only drawback to these is that each weapon can only be used by one crewmate. Nonetheless, I was able to pick the best weapons which I deducted based on Hitpoints, Traits, and the characters that wield them.

Key Takeaways
  • There are a total of 114 weapons that can be found in Granblue Fantasy Relink.
  • I was able to pick the top 6 that edge every single other weapon in the game.
  • The top 6 weapons are categorized into Stunner, Stinger, Executioner, Defender, and Ascension types.
  • The best weapon is Ascalon, a Stunner wielded by Siegfried which boosts Stun Power.
  • Other notable weapons include Broadsword Of Earth, Joyeuse, Ultima Sword, Ragnarok, and Claidheamh Soluis.
  • Author’s Note: With around 15+ hours in GBFR and after completing most of the storyline and playing co-op, I can safely say that I’ve had enough experience to pick the best possible weapons for you so you can easily trust the following opinionated rankings.

My Take On The Best Weapons

It can be really hard to choose the best weapon among so many, but these 6, in my opinion, these six just edge every other weapon. For me, they look the most aesthetically pleasing, have the most damage output, and have the best traits! Each one of these weapons has its unique aspect that makes it the best of their weapon type. 

So these were the best weapons you can find and forge in GBFR. To get to the top you must pick the best weapons you can. Some players on X have reached one of the top levels using Ultima Sword and are literally having a blast.
