Kingdom Hearts 3: How to Unlock the Ultima Weapon

Kingdom Hearts 3 Director Set to Attend Fan Event

For most fans, Kingdom Hearts 3 has been a long time coming. With the wait finally over, many players are quickly realizing that there's a lot to this game, in both story as well as gameplay mechanics. Keyblades are another a major component of the KH series, and like in the previous games, this third entry has a number of hidden or unlockable ones that players can come across.

One such blade, the Ultima Weapon, makes its return as the best keyblade in the game. The base statistics alone put the weapon in a class by itself, featuring 13 strength and 13 magic. As for abilities, the Ultima Weapon is a great melee weapon as it has combo boost, air combo boost, and situation boost. It also unlocks Sora's Ultimate Form, which gives the player a unique moveset, new abilities, and wide attacks with very high damage output.

For such a powerful weapon, it's going to take a bit of effort and grinding to be able to craft it. Here's how to unlock it in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Get the Recipe


The first step in this process is to obtain the recipe needed to craft the weapon. In order to do this, players will need to acquire 58 different synthesis materials. These items are fairly common and drop from beating enemies, destroying rocks in the gummi ship, synthesizing them from a workshop, and being found as random drops from treasure chests.

Players can also head to a Moogle Workshop to see how many materials they have by going to Collector's Goals. Once 58 is reached, the Ultima Weapon recipe becomes available to use.

Craft the Ultima Weapon

With the recipe unlocked, players now have the option to craft the blade, although the requirements and materials needed are quite high. The required items are 2 Wellspring Crystals, 2 Lucid Crystals, 2 Pulsing Crystals, and 7 Orichalcum+. Wellspring crystals typically drop from high-end monsters and can be rewarded from certain events like Battle Portals in San Fransokyo. The other crystal types can be synthesized at the Workshop as long as the requirements are met.

The Orichalcum is a very rare crafting material that is earned as a reward through various activities. Some of these include finding 80 out of the 90 Lucky emblems, finding a treasure chest on Exile Island and The Final World, getting a random reward from a Moogle Postcard, defeating the Omega Machine Boss in The Eclipse galaxy, finding all 10 Treasures during the Frozen Slider minigame, and earning three fruit high scores from all of the Flantastic Seven when replaying worlds.

Once all of the necessary materials are obtained, players can craft the Ultima Weapon from the Synthesize Items page in the Moogle Workshop.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is available now for PS4 and Xbox One.
