*''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'' has the Roshule Sword for Reviel and the Wind Spirit spear for Luna, which are their best non-sorcerous weapons. The former is obtained via the story while the latter is obtained by beating [[spoiler:Shylphiel]] at level 32 or lower. Unlike most examples, these two weapons are BoringButPractical compared to the {{Infinity Plus One Sword}}s, which drain the wielders' HP.

*** [[CrazyTaxi The Crazy]] board is this compared to the Chaos Emerald gear(Super Sonic) in Sonic Riders as well. It's also a gear that runs on rings, but it runs on roughly half the rings that the Chaos Emerald does. In Zero Gravity, it even uses the same Gear Parts sans an extra ring storage part.

** And the Gobi Campaign Sniper Rifle, the base game special Sniper rifle (the COS Silenced SR being the alternate), although requiring a somewhat harder requirement, it's in a comparatively peaceful location which is chock-full of the gun's corresponding ammo, and the gun itself has the highest fire rate and 2nd highest critical hit damage of all sniper rifles in the game.

** At first, the Righteous Authority is really nothing special - it's just a laser rifle with a unique mod, right? Not quite. That mod, combined with a high luck build, easily pushes the laser rifle into relevance past the level 30, until you can get some of the later science mods. It's available basically from the start of the game, as, while the side quest might be a bit out of your level range, you're escorted by a man in power armor. You also encounter so much ammunition for the laser rifle on that side quest that you'll probably never want for ammo again.

* An interesting case in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. Weapons are not found or made but rather upgraded from your existing ones. While there are magazines that you get at certain parts of the game telling you which items you need to upgrade which weapon (the last magazine for the ulimate weapons not appearing until disc 3) you don't need them to upgrade your weapons so long as you have the right items. Thus you can get all but one characters' ultimate weapons as early as Disc 1 if you play enough triple triad [[labelnote:*]]The one exception being Irvine, who's final weapon cannot be made without an item you cannot acquire until Disc 3 (Disc 2 if you have a PocketStation).[[/labelnote]]. The minus 1 part comes from the fact that all of these ultimate weapons require incredibly hard to get items and are so tedious and time consuming to get that it really isn't worth it doing until discs 2 or 3 except for bragging rights. That, and the weapons right below the ultimate (like Squall's [[{{BFS}} Punishment]] and Quistis' Red Scorpion) require items that are FAR less rare and can be easily acquired with just s hours worth of card playing. These weapons will still give your characters a massive strength and allow them to [[DiscOneNuke plow through]] most of the early part of the game, and you won't need to play 12+ hours of triple triad to get them.

* All the "plus ones" in ''VideoGame/Persona3'' are obtained by weapon-fusing very high level (the lowest one is 73) Personas, many of which require maxed out [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Social Links]] to create and are often complicated 5 or 6-way fusions. There are a few special weapons that, while nowhere near as powerful, are much easier to obtain.
** The Gae Bolg is obtained by weapon fusing Cu Chulainn, a Lv 40 Persona that doesn't require any Social Links to be completed. It has 260 ATK, far more than anything obtainable at that point. It's only weakness is dealing Wind element damage, making it useless against enemies immune to Wind.
** Mjolnir, Laevatein and Balmung are obtained by weapon fusing Thor, Surt and Siegfried respectively. While all three ''do'' require maxed Social Links, they're among the easier links to max out and all are obtainable at a comparatively low level. All weapons have 300 power, putting them on the level of most endgame ones. Mjolnir and Laevatein have the same issue as the Gae Bolg, dealing elemental damage, but overall they're still very good weapons for the time they're available.
** On the higher end, Deus Xiphos is only slightly weaker than the ultimate sword, Lucifer's Blade (both have 450 power, Lucifer's Blade gives +10 to all stats while Deus Xiphos only give +10 to Magic). It requires weapon fusing Michael, a Lv 75 Judgement Persona who doesn't require a special fusion or any maxed Social Links, while Lucifer's Blade requires, well, Lucifer, who's a complicated fusion of multiple high-tier Personas in the low to mid 80's, including one that requires the Star Social Link to be maxed out.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has weapons obtained from exchanging tomestone currency with a specific NPC. They are usually second best compared to weapons obtained from difficult raids or the more time consuming relics, which are the game's InfinityPlusOneSword. Sometimes weapons made by crafters and putting a lot of materia on them can also serve as a suitable second best weapon.

*** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' introduces the Jagmo-O line, Fighting/Dragon critters that use weaponized scales to battle. They are, obviously, mainly Physical attackers.

* For many players of the ''VideoGame/MechWarrior'' series (and by extension the native ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' tabletop wargame), the top tier of weapons consists of the [[LightningGun Clan ER-PPC]], [[MagneticWeapons Gauss rifle]], and the [[{{BFG}} Autocannon-20]]. All of these weapons are massively powerful, but come with major drawbacks such as high heat generation, immense weight, vulnerable components (particularly their ammo stowage), rarity limiting availability, and especially cost. Players who still want some punch without having to make such sacrifices tend to pick equipment out of the second tier of weapons, which consist of things like standard [=PPCs=], large lasers, and Autocannon-10 variants. These weapons lack the apocalyptic firepower of their top tier counterparts, but they weigh less, don't heat up as much, carry more ammo, and are generally cheaper and more readily available. Most importantly, the majority of these second-tier weapons meet or exceed the all-important 10-point damage threshold, which is exactly the amount of damage needed to remove all the armor from a 'Mech's head in a single hit, as well as possibly kill the pilot.
