Final Fantasy VIII has many different and unique weapons that you can create, one of which is the Lionheart which is Squall’s best and strongest weapon.
Thanks to the ability of certain Summons and Cards you now have the ability to create the Lionheart from as early as disc 1. Warning though, this may be classed as a cheat or exploit considering Squall will most likely be a powerhouse after doing this.
There will also be a lot of Triple Triad and fighting involved to obtain the Lionheart early so be warned! Also, remember to always save when doing this, you have been further warned!
Now to begin this ‘Lionheart quest’ you need to first unlock the ability to play Triple Triad, which you can do from an early point of the game. Just speak to the guy standing near the elevator on 2F and he will give you a starting deck of cards to play with.After acquiring the cards head for 1F and play Triple Triad against the boy who is forever running around in blue, he has the MiniMog card, which you need to help improve your deck of cards.
TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN KING: (GRENDEL OPTION)
If you picked this option continue the story until you reach the Tomb. You need to defeat the Brothers Summon. The tomb is quite straight forward but if you need a video for navigation then here is one
BOTH OPTION – CONCLUSION
Okay now it does not matter which option you pick because now you will need to head for Deling City and to the Weapon Shop where you will now finally be able to make the Lionheart Gunblade, congrats!
