FFX2 Tiny Bee Yuna

Guns (, Juu?), also called fire arms and handguns, are a recurring weapon type in the Final Fantasy series. They are ranged weapons which propel bullets toward foes. In some games, the damage they deal is not based on the wielder's Strength, but on the gun's attack power. Guns didn't appear until the PlayStation era games, and are usually equipped by Gunners or Machinists. In some of the later games in the series, guns are named after various stars.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit


The Capella.

Guns can be equipped by any character who has acquired the necessary license, though Balthier joins the party with one equipped. Guns are the slowest weapons, but have perfect accuracy and ignore defense, however, some enemies have a trait which will reduce the damage drastically.

Guns, like all ranged weapons, are incapable of multiple hits, but can deal critical damage from time to time. The guns' names are the names of various stars.

In the Zodiac versions, the Machinist has access to all guns, but the Shikari can also access a few with Espers.

The damage formula for guns is:

$ DMG = [ATK * RANDOM(1..1.125)]^2 $

Due to the weight put exclusively on the combined Attack Power of the gun and ammo, a character with low Strength stat can benefit from using it. Guns will almost never hit for around 9,999 points of damage as there are no guns and ammo to increase the Attack Power to 100 points. A character equipped with the strongest gun and ammo (Folmalhaut with Dark or Windslicer Shot (original version); Aldebaran Y with Dark or Windslicer Shot (Zodiac versions)) can deal up to 3,690 (6201 (Zodiac versions)) points of damage. Additionally, attacking under Bravery raises the damage output as well increasing it to up to 4,797 (8061 (Zodiac versions)) points of damage.
