This guide is a work-in-progress, and may take some time to complete.
I felt that it was sufficiently complete to post on GameFAQs for now.
If you have any questions, corrections, or concerns, e-mail me at:

The latest version will always be at Gamefaqs!

Note: This FAQ pertains to the US version of Phantasy Star Portable.  The

All weapons in this FAQ are listed according to the order that is in the
game's Weapon Log.  To access this, enter the GUARDIANS Colony, and go to
Your room > Game achievements > Weapon Log.

The stats listed (aside from Cost/Other) are also what is listed in the Weapon
Log.  Actual cost and attributes may vary, depending on upgrades and element.
Melee weapons and R-Mags in particular vary in cost depending on the elemental
attribute.  Higher elemental attributes are more costly. Where applicable, the
weapon costs refer to the non-elemental versions.

Each section has a brief description of the weapon followed by a section that
states "Why should I use this weapon?" and "Why shouldn't I use this weapon?".
This should NOT be read as a "Pros and Cons" list.  If you like two-handed
weapons (playing a Protranser, for example), then it's obviously not a negative
point for you.  It is provided for the beginner as a way of looking at each
weapon at a glance.

Tables are listed in the following format:

Manufacturer (G = GRM, Y = Yohmei Corp, T = TENORA WORKS, K = Kubara product)
and Grade    (C, B, A, or S grade, with C as worst and S as best)

==================
= Swords (WPswd) =
==================

Description
-----------
Swords are large two-handed weapons that attack with a sweeping motion around
the wielder.  They are a great choice for a beginner, as it's difficult to
miss a monster completely even without lock-on.  Swords attack with a 3-hit
combo.

Swords are generally useful for taking on clumps of enemies and slow monsters
with multiple hitzones (like bosses).  They are less useful on single targets
and fast targets (which tend to run out of melee range quickly).

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Large damage per hit
* Hits multiple targets (up to 3 in a 90 degree arc)
* Readily available (all manufacturers make at least one of this weapon type)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Slow
* Two-handed prevents the use of R-Mags
* Less accurate than other two-handed weapons
* Only usable by Hunters, Fighmasters, and Protransers

==================
= Spears (WPspe) =
==================

Description
-----------
Spears are 2-handed weapons that attack with a forward thrusting motion, which
can hit two targets.  They have better Accuracy but less Attack Power than
other similar weapons.  Spears attack with a 3-hit combo.

The Photon Arts for the Spear generally remove the disadvantage of the skinny
arc, as they tend to be wider sweeping motions.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* All types can use this weapon (except Acromaster)
* Large damage per hit
* Hits multiple targets (up to 2 in a small arc forward)
* Long range
* Readily available (all manufacturers make at least one of this weapon type)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Forward piercing attack means complete misses if not locked on a target
* Two-handed prevents the use of R-Mags
* Less power than other large two-handed weapons

= Slicers (WPsli) =
===================

Description
-----------
Slicers are one-handed melee weapons that imitate ranged weapons.  They swing
in a wide arc, hitting multiple targets at close range, and each swing throws
an energy blade that resembles a boomerang in front of the user.  While the
range is short for a ranged weapon, it allows the melee hand to deal ranged
damage.  Slicers hit more slowly and for less damage than other similar
weapons, with a 3-hit combo.

The Photon Arts for slicers are geared toward hitting things in circle around
the user.  They do not have as much range as, say, Tornado Break, but they are
decent for crowd control.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* All types can use this weapon (except Protranser)
* Close swings are in a wide arc, hitting multiple targets.
* Ranged attack in the melee hand.

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Rare (this weapon is available at 7* and above)
* Slower than a Saber
* Less damage than a Saber

= Rifles (WPrif) =
==================

Description
-----------
Rifles are 2-handed ranged weapons.  They deal a decent amount of damage per
hit and fire as fast as a Handgun, although you cannot move while you are
shooting.  The long range of the Rifle makes it a good choice for hitting
bosses in flight.

Rifles are the recommended ranged weapon for beginners, as they are easy to use
and do not run out of Photon Points quickly.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Large Photon Point supply
* Large damage per hit
* Long Range
* Readily available (all manufacturers but TENORA WORKS make this weapon)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Only Hunters, Rangers, Gunmasters, and Protransers can use this weapon
* Two-handed
* Can't move while shooting

= Shotguns (WPsho) =
====================

Description
-----------
Shotguns are 2-handed ranged weapons.  They have extremely short range compared
to other ranged weapons, but they fire up to 5 "bolts" per shot in a wide 
spread.  While they are slow and have low accuracy/attack power, a point-blank
shot with a shotgun will hit a single target 5 times.  The wide arc makes the
shotgun effective for groups.

While it may seem that the cons outweigh the pros, Shotguns can be very
effective at close range and they are a good alternative to melee weapons for
folks like Gunmasters.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* 5 shots in a wide arc
* Point blank attacks hit 5 times

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Only Rangers, Gunmasters, and Protransers can use this weapon
* Two-handed
* Can't move while shooting
* Short Range
* Low Accuracy
* Low Attack Power
* Slow Attack Speed
* No first person mode

= Twin Handguns (WPtha) =
=========================

Description
-----------
Twin Handguns are 2-handed dual ranged weapons that fire a pair of shots
consecutively per attack.  They deal less damage than a single handgun, but
they fire rapidly.  Like Handguns, you can move while shooting.  Whlie you have
a large Power Point supply, this is offset by the high rate of fire.  Still,
this is a mobile alternative to the Rifle that is good for taking on other
ranged attackers.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Large Power Point supply
* High mobility (move while shooting)
* High attack speed
* Readily available (all manufacturers make this weapon)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Two-handed
* High Power Point consumption
* Lower damage than a Handgun

= Crossbows (WPcro) =
=====================

Description
-----------
Crossbows are one-handed ranged weapons.  They are similar to shotguns in that
they can shoot multiple shots (at higher Bullet levels), but they allow you to
strafe and move.  They do not deal nearly as much damage as shotguns, but they
are a good one-handed alternative to handguns.

Crossbows shoot 1 bolt at bullet level 1-10, 2 bolts at bullet level 11-20, and
3 bolts at bullet level 21+.  Obviously, they are most effective when you reach
bullet level 21+.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Multiple shots
* High mobility (move while shooting)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Only Rangers/Gunmasters can use this weapon
* Low damage
* No first person mode
* Rare (this weapon is available at 7* and above)

= Cards (WPcar) =
=================

Description
-----------
Cards are one-handed ranged weapons. They work similar to handguns, since you
are able to strafe while shooting.  Once you achieve a lock-on (red crosshair)
you can throw the Cards, which will shoot a homing projectile, allowing you to
dodge after throwing.  The homing is of little practical benefit, but it still
looks fairly neat.  At bullet levels of 11 and higher, you can throw 3 cards
instead of the default 2 cards.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Forces/Masterforces can use this weapon
* Homing shots
* High mobility (move while shooting)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Low damage
* No first person mode
* Rare (this weapon is available at 7* and above)

= Machineguns (WPmac) =
=======================

Description
-----------
Machineguns are 1-handed ranged weapons.  They are different from other ranged
weapons in that they require you to hold down the attack button rather than
tapping the attack button repeatedly.  The result is a steady stream of damage
on a single target.  They burn through Power Points quickly, but can deal a
massive amount of damage in a short time.

One of the special Photon Arts for this weapon is Meseta Fury (obtained from
the title reward for Meseta Tycoon, 1 million Meseta).  It allows you to use
Meseta instead of Power Points for ammunition.  This gives you a continuous
stream of damage as long as you have the cash to support it.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* All types can equip this weapon (except Protranser)
* Extremely fast hits
* Readily available (all manufacturers but Yohmei make this weapon)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Low damage per hit
* High Power Point Consumption

==================
= R-Mags (WPrma) =
==================

Description
-----------
R-Mags are one-handed ranged weapons.  However, they require no attack button
input to fire.  Instead, they fire automatically when enemies approach.  While
they tend to deal less damage than their manual counterparts, the automatic
nature of the R-Mag allows it to be paired with a one-handed melee weapon for
stacking multiple sources of damage.

It's difficult to quantify how much R-Mags help with a one-handed melee weapon.
Although they clearly add more damage, many folks believe that a two-handed
melee weapon would do more damage than a R-Mag and a one-handed melee weapon
combined.  Of course, some one-handed weapons have no two-handed counterpart
(like Slicers and Whips), so R-Mags are useful in this case.  R-Mags also
continue to fire even if your character is knocked down, which is a bonus.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* All types can equip this weapon (except Protranser)
* High mobility (move while shooting)
* R-Mags fire automatically, thus they can stack with a 1-handed melee weapon
* Unlimited ammunition
* Readily available (all manufacturers but Yohmei make this weapon)

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Low damage
* Short range
* Rate of fire varies depending on the R-Mag type

================
= Rods (WProd) =
================

Description
-----------
Rods are two-handed TECHNIC weapons.  They can store up to 4 TECHNICs.

If all of the TECHNICs on a Rod are the same element, then the rod gains an
elemental bonus equal to 4 percent per TECHNIC above the first one.  Thus, a
rod with two TECHNICs has a 4 percent bonus, a rod with three TECHNICs has 8
percent, and a rod with four TECHNICs has 12 percent.  If a rod has even one
TECHNIC that isn't of the same element as the others, it is effectively neutral
and does not have a bonus.

Why should I use this weapon?
-----------------------------
* Can stack up to 12% elemental bonus with 4 slots
* High Power Point supply

Why shouldn't I use this weapon?
--------------------------------
* Two-handed prevents the use of R-Mags
* Slower casting rate than Wands or TECH-Mags

===============

Q) Why is your drop list incomplete?
A) This guide is a work-in-progress.  I'm taking the time to verify the weapon
   drops in my game.  While there are many good resources for the game, most of
   these have information from the Japanese version, so the information may not
   necessarily apply to the US version.

   Also, I have not been listing most of the drops that are buyable in the
   store.  I may add these drops at a later date, but once you complete the
   Story Mode, you should have access to all of these weapons.

Q) What are the weapon restrictions for each battle type?
A) Here is a table:

Q) What are the differences between the manufacturers?
A) * GRM weapons are average in just about every respect.  The main GRM shop
     is on Parum.  GRM also produces high grade Sabers, Double Sabers, Twin
     Sabers, Swords, Handguns, Twin Handguns, Machineguns, R-Mags, Rifles,
     Laser Cannons, and TECH-Mags.
   * Yohmei weapons have lower Attack Power/Technique Power, but they also
     have higher Photon Points and Accuracy. The main Yohmei Corp shop is on
     Neudaiz. Yohmei Corp also produces high grade Daggers, Twin Daggers,
     Claws, Twin Claws, Cards, Longbows, Wands, and Rods.  They are the ONLY
     manufacturer that makes Slicers (other than Kubara).
   * TENORA WORKS weapons have higher Attack Power/Technique Power, but they
     also have lower Photon Points and Accuracy. The main TENORA WORKS shop
     is on Moatoob.  TENORA WORKS also produces high grade Whips, Knuckles,
     Spears, Axes, Crossbows, Shotguns, and Grenades.
   * Kubara product is the catch-all category for "everything else." It
     consists of the following:
     * Imitations of the other manufacturer weapons (usually duplicating 6*,
       8*, 10*,11*, and 12* weapons) which have extremely low PP and higher
       Attack Power/Technique Power.
     * "Gag" weapons like umbrellas, frying pans, and gigantic white gloves.
     * Unique and powerful high grade weapons.

Q) How can I buy higher grade weapons?
A) The grade of weapons that you can purchase in the various shops are based
   on how many chapters you have completed in Story Mode.  All of the shops
   start selling Grade C/1* rarity weapons, and gain another "star" of rarity
   for every chapter that you complete.  You can buy up to 9* rarity items by
   the time you finish the Story Mode.

   While you will get better drops from missions, the shops are a great place
   to fill up your Weapon log.  You can just buy weapons that you don't have
   in your log and sell them back.

Q) How does weapon grinding work?
A) You can obtain Upgrade Grinders as random drops, title rewards (for every 10
   levels except 50 and 100), and for achieving S rank at the end of a mission.
   To use the Upgrade Grinder, go to the Shop:Upgrade (available on all of 4 of
   the planets).  Upgrade Grinders can be used up to 10 times on any weapon.

   The upgrades received from the grinders are random, but the range only
   differs by 2 or 3 points.  Thus, the most that any weapon at the end of 10
   grinds will be is about 20 to 30 points, assuming that one person gets the
   best grinds on all stats and another person gets the worst grinds.  Under
   normal circumstances, you'll probably be off the maximum possible stats by
   5 to 10 points.

   If you absolutely need the maximum stats for a weapon, you can grind the
   weapon a few times, noting the stat increases with each grind, reload your
   game, then attempt an upgrade.  If it comes up as the maximum number, then
   save your game and repeat.  Otherwise, just load the game and try again.
   This is a tedious and largely unnecessary process, but it's available for
   all of you perfectionists out there.

   I generally upgrade weapons that are 6*, 9*, and 10* plus.  These are the
   breakpoints for the weapon grades compared to rarity stars (6* is B grade,
   9* is A grade, etc.) and thus are the highest rarity weapons usable by
   various battle types in different weapon categories.  It's easy to get more
   Upgrade Grinders and since you can only upgrade 10 times, you'll have plenty
   of them to go around.

   If you are running low on Upgrade Grinders, you can repeatedly run the Story
   Mode mission Plant Recovery C.  It is only 2 blocks, and can be finished in
   2 to 3 minutes (my record time is 1:29).  S-ranking that mission will get
   you an Upgrade Grinder.

Q) What's the deal with the "beef" weapons?
A) Your first experience with the beef weapons probably will be the story
   missions on Moatoob, where an encounter will drop several of them at your
   feet.  The beef weapons all start out as the "Rare" version, as in rare
   steak.  If you use Upgrade Grinders on the beef weapons, you have a chance
   of over-cooking them into the Welldone versions.  If you successfully use
   10 Grinders on a beef weapon, then it upgrades to the Medium version (the
   highest grade) and get the Cooking Fighter title.  You can save, upgrade a
   couple of times, and if it doesn't work, reload your game.

Q) Where can I find the Story Mode ChX: Act X Block 2 weapons?
A) Almost every Block 2 section of all of the Story Mode missions have a box
   which has a secret weapon or armor unit.  Just dig around until you find it.
   Here are some hints:
   * Chapter 1: Act 2 - One of the rooms has 4 boxes in a square.
   * Chapter 2: Act 2 - Behind a tree in a small bush "container" after a
                        short cave.
   * Chapter 3: Act 2 - Near a trap left of Drua Gohra near entrance.
   * Chapter 4: Act 1 - After jumping through a teleporter, look behind you.
   * Chapter 4: Act 2 - There is a Y branch with two locked doors. Right door.
   * Chapter 5: Act 1 - To the left of a Jishagara spawn x3.
   * Chapter 5: Act 2 - Small room with a Bil De Veer.
   * Chapter 5: Act 3 - Room locked by Key 2.
   * Chapter 6: Act 1 - North end of a room after a teleporter.
   * Chapter 6: Act 2 - In the "open maze" area, after a teleporter.
   * Chapter 6: Act 3 - Behind doors south of Key 1.
   * Chapter 7: Act 1 - Left after the Jarba.
   * Chapter 7: Act 2 - Box near the Photon Point Charger.
   * Chapter 7: Act 3 - Right at the first T-section.
   * Chapter 8: Act 1 - Room to the east of the starting room.
   * Chapter 8: Act 2 - Right branch in the northern path.
   * Chapter 8: Act 3 - Near a Dilnazen.

Q) Every so often, I notice that my weapon does a "critical hit".  How do I do
   this more often?
A) This is the Exact Attack and Exact Counter system.  They both appear with
   a yellow flash when you attack and your damage is increased by 40-50%.  You
   can perform an Exact Attack on the 2nd or 3rd attack (NOT hit) of a combo.
   Some fast weapons will actually do two hits in the first press of the Square
   button.  Near the end of the 1st attack's animation, press the Square button
   again to activate the 2nd attack.  If timed properly, you will see a yellow
   flash and you will deal higher damage.  You can also perform Exact Attacks
   with Melee Photon Arts.  Exact Attacks also fill up your Photon Points
   faster than regular attacks.
   
   Exact Attacks are slightly slower than just spamming the attack button.
   They are more useful with slower weapons (which are going to hit slower for
   more damage anyway) than faster weapons.  Conversely, the timing is easier
   to nail down on the faster weapons.
   
   Exact Counter means that when you block an attack (your character is in the
   blocking animation and you take zero damage), you press the Square button
   and counter the attack with a powerful hit.  Even ranged weapons can do a
   "critical hit" this way.

Q) Why can't I find Axes/Laser Cannons/Double Sabers/(insert weapon here)?
A) Several weapons don't show up until Rarity 7*.  These include Double Sabers,
   Axes, Twin Claws, Claws, Cards, Crossbows, Grenades, and Laser Cannons.
   Also, the battle type of the person hosting a game influences the kind of
   drops from the various bosses and monsters.  Hunters/Fighmasters will find
   rarer melee weapons, for example.

Q) Are there any good websites for Phantasy Star Portable?
A) There is indeed a Phantasy Star Portable wiki:
   http://psupedia.info/PSP:Phantasy_Star_Portable
   The information mostly pertains to the JP version of the game, but dedicated
   fans are working on the US version.
