All Battle-Tested Weapons & how to get them in Octopath Traveler 2

These automatically make any party member busted.

The overworld in Octopath Traveler 2 is filled to the brim with rare and powerful weapons, but the Battle-Tested Weapons put all others to shame. This is quite the boast seeing as there are heavy hitters like the Forbidden Blade out there. Statistically, though, the Battle-Tested Weapons provide more power than anything else a character can equip in the game.

After completing Hikari's main storyline in Octopath Traveler 2, players can revisit Bandelam from Montwise. He changes location to the hill that overlooks the port south of Crackridge. To actually get the weapon (and all the others in fact), it's important to either bring Partitio or a high leveled Throne. The latter can steal the item, while Partitio can just buy them.
