The April 21, 2016, update enabled characters equipping additional weapons exclusive to them. Unlike the previous games, however, the weapon is physically visible on the character themselves. The design of the weapon is based on its original design from each character's respective series. As of now, they provide no additional buffs or strengths in battle, and are aesthetic in change.
In addition, the weapons equipped by characters exclusive to the Dissidia series (e.g. Terra's sword) are given official names for the first time.
