Ultima Weapons are fabled weapons associated with Ultimate Bahamut. These weapons boost ATK and HP for characters that match a weapon specialty, and at their highest level of crafting have three weapon skills that can be customised with Gauph Keys to the user's needs.
The first weapon stage is called Atma. The first skill offers a selection of modifiers including ATK, HP, Stamina, Enmity, Critical Hit Rate, and Attack Rate boosts.
The next crafting stage develops the weapon into a true Ultima weapon. The second skill can be one of several Damage Cap boosts, and can only be obtained with drops from the Impossible version of the Ultimate Bahamut raid. The third skill, only obtainable with drops from Rage of Super Ultimate Bahamut, offers further specialist skill choices for high-level players.
You must be at least rank 80 to craft these weapons. A free Atma Weapon can be obtained from the event What Makes the Sky Blue III: 000.
Multiple Ultima weapons cannot be equipped in the same grid. At 5★, Ultima weapons can be placed in the additional weapon slots of Party Set Extra.

Step 1: Obtain a Rusted Weapon
The first step to creating an Ultima weapon is obtaining a level 75 Rusted Weapon. There are three ways of getting these: commonly from the Proto Bahamut raid, uncommonly from the Angel Halo dungeon, and by trading Renown Pendants for them at the Shop. If you run Angel Halo, it's recommended to run it on Very Hard.
A rusted weapon can be uncapped by combining 4 copies, but you can also buy Steel Bricks from the Casino to fully uncap it.
Step 2: Create an Atma Weapon
What Element Should I Make the Atma Weapon In?
Before starting the process, you should carefully consider what element to make the weapon in, as restarting the process is very expensive. An Atma/Ultima weapon is best created in an element that you do not have a good main weapon of that type. The Atma/Ultima weapon will still provide its effects even if not in the main hand. If you have two or more single-specialty teams in mind, create the weapon for the element where you the weaker main weapon of that type and element as a replacement. For example, if there are two spear teams
and a fully uncapped Lupercalia is available, but only an Ifrit Halberd is available for the fire team, a Fire Spear Relic should be made. The wind spear team will still be powered up by the eventual Ultima Weapon when it is in the grid.
To create an Atma weapon, you must first create a relic from a level 75 Rusted Weapon. To create a relic, go to the Shop > Weapon Series > Ultima Weapons > Atma Recollection, then look for the weapon type you wish to craft. In addition the following items are needed to create a single relic. These depend on the element you choose for your weapon:
- Low Orb ×250
- Whorl ×250
- Flawed Prism ×250
Creating the Weapon
After creating a relic, the following materials are required to upgrade the relic into an Atma weapon. These also vary depending on the element chosen (Dark requires both Water and Earth trial fragments; Light requires both Fire and Wind):
- Trial Fragment ×20
- Horn of Bahamut ×2
- Meteorite ×10
- Supreme Merit ×20
- Ultima Core ×1
You can currently only obtain Ultima Cores by hosting and clearing an Ultimate Bahamut raid of either difficulty for the first time, by trading in Ultima Units or Cloud Commendation at the Shop, or from the event What Makes the Sky Blue III: 000. Thus, you can only have a limited number of Atma Weapons in your inventory. However, reducing an Atma weapon allows you to regain its core.
Step 3: Create an Ultima Weapon
An Atma weapon at level 100 and weapon skill level 10 is required to create an Ultima weapon. Note that increasing an Atma weapon's skill level is equivalent to that of a Bahamut Weapon. These materials are needed to forge an Atma weapon into an Ultima weapon, some of which correspond to the weapon's type and element.
- Weapon Stone ×500
- Elemental Quartz ×500
- Urn ×30
- Legendary Merit ×10
- Silver Centrum ×10
- Primeval Horn ×3
- Ultima Unit ×5
Uncapping Ultima Weapons
To unlock the third weapon skill, Ultima Weapons need to be upgraded to Level 200.
Note that Ultima Weapons uncaps cannot be skipped with Damascus Ingot or Gold Brick.
4★ Uncap Materials
- Ultima Unit ×30
- Silver Centrum ×30
- Primeval Horn ×30
- Legendary Merit ×30
5★ Uncap Materials
- Ultimate Memory ×20
- Ultima Unit ×30
