Weapon data is obtained in a few different ways:

- Obtaining a weapon for one of your characters
- Inspecting weapons while exploring
- Talking to characters that carry weapons
- Fighting monsters that carry certain weapons

Make sure you're using a checklist (the one Ater Magus has works nicely) as you play through the game, as there's a possibility that you will miss some data. There are chests that you cannot return to, and there are monsters that will disappear forever (though it's actually harder to avoid these monsters than it is to fight them at least once, which is all you will need.)

Some annoying / hard to get weapons:

- Any weapon from the Coliseum coin exchange. You will need to accumulate around 20,000 coins to purchase them all. Fortunately, if you're going for the Bunny Racing achievements, you will accrue more than enough coins.
- The Mysterious Scepter and Grim Reaper weapons purchased from the Imitation Gallery shop on EN II. The reason I list this is because the shop is tough to find, as it's not marked on the map. It's on the east-central side of Centropolis, down a skinny alley. There's a metal door at the end that will open when you approach.
- Anything from the Wandering Dungeon. The bad news is that you'll most likely have to make multiple runs through the dungeon to get all the weapons. The good news: the weapons appear only on specific floors, making your search faster and easier. The following weapons can (but don't always) appear on the following floors:

- Artifact Bow (4F, 6F)
- Blazing Wand (7F, 8F)
- Infinity Saber (7F, 11F)
- Trident Harpoon (9F, 13F)
- Hidden Claws "Crimson Falcons" (10F, 12F)
- Blood Scepter (14F, 15F)
- Ultimate Cannon (16F, 18F)
- Demon Sword "Levantine" (17F, 19F)

A final note: it's worth checking out enemy drops, as some of the later enemies drop items that you may have missed. For example, Dark Raptors and Phantom Dragoons on Nox Obscuris drop Cardianon Swords and Cardianon Bows, respectively. Also, you may luck out in the Wandering Dungeon and open a chest with a weapon you missed, but relying on this method is perhaps more trouble than it's worth.
