The weapon equipment list in Final Fantasy VIII is the smallest of its kind in the Final Fantasy series (unless you count Final Fantasy X-2 where you don't equip weapons, since the weapon changes when you change Dresspheres), including the weapons equippable by people who are in your party for a short period of time. There is a total of 35 equippable weapons (13 if you discount the weapons that are upgraded versions of the original weapon).
|Revolver||100G||Rough Divide||The gunblade's original model. What it lacks in power, it more than makes up for with its reliability. An excerpt of this model is mentioned in Weapons Monthly Magazine.||M-stone Piece x6, Screw x2.|
|Shear Trigger||200G||Rough Divide, Fated Circle||An improvement over the Revolver, Shear Trigger uses the same blade as the Revolver, but the gun aspect is now more powerful. An excerpt of this model is mentioned in Weapons Monthly Magazine.||Steel Pipe x1, Screw x1.|
|Cutting Trigger||400G||Rough Divide, Fated Circle||This Cutting Trigger is made by replacing the blade of the Revolver with the powerful Cutting Sword. An excerpt of this model is mentioned in Weapons Monthly Magazine.||Mesmerize Blade x1, Screw x8.|
|Flame Saber||600G||Rough Divide, Fated Circle, Blasting Zone||The Flame Saber got its name from its red blade. This gunblade is very similar to the Cutting Trigger. An excerpt of this model is mentioned in Weapons Monthly Magazine.||Betrayal Sword x1, Turtle Shell x1, Screw x8.|

An excerpt of this model is mentioned in Weapons Monthly Magazine.||Adamantine x1, Dragon Fang x4, Pulse Ammo x12.|
|Hyperion||N/A||No Mercy, Demon Slice, Bloodfest, Zantetsuken Reverse||This gunblade uses a semi-automatic pistol, resembling that of a Beretta, rather than a revolver as a handle and it also has a unique blade. Seifer uses it differently from Squall's gunblades, in a backhand slash rather than a forward one, although this may just be his fighting style and not due to any design mechanic of the weapon, and he also uses it with one hand rather than two. Due to a lack of mention in any source material involving gunblades it is unknown whether this is an actual model type or a custom designed model for Seifer's personal use.|
Wrist mounted ranged weapons. Rinoa's preferred form of defense.

|Ulysses||200G||The Ulysses lacks style, but is a quality rifle with tremendous fire power. The inelegant design was necessary to absorb the powerful recoil after firing. An excerpt of this model is mentioned in the May Issue of Weapons Monthly Magazine.||Steel Pipe x1, Bomb Fragment x1, Screw x2.|

Rinoa's secondary weapon in Dead Fantasy can be folded against the arm when not in use and, when activated, can be unfolded and ready to launch within seconds. Like the Blaster Edges before it the Silenced Tear is fired from a wrist mounted launcher and will return to the wielder near the end of its flight ready to be fired again.
When unfolded the center of the disc can be junctioned with magical power in a similar way to Final Fantasy VIII's Junction System. In Dead Fantasy II, Rinoa junctions it with Holy magic and activates it when clashing against Ayane.
Rinoa Heartilly's primary weapon in Dead Fantasy. It possesses a revolver handle like Squall's gunblade but features a different blade with a white feather and the words Vanishing Star inscribed upon it. Upon further inspection, the Gunblade has two triggers (as noted on Monty Oum's deviant) and an actual gun barrel atop the weapon's blade, as well as exhaust port's on the blade itself, suggesting that it can be used as ranged weapon as well. On said gun barrel, the words All Existence Denied are inscribed: a direct quote of Ultimecia in Final Fantasy VIII
Dion Rogers' Rinoa is seen in concept art wielding this weapon. It possesses a Griever etching on the blade, which is identical in shape to the Revolver's blade. However, it possesses a shotgun handle instead of the Revolver handle.
