Weapons are used for fighting off the minions of darkness while you're going around seeking revenge against Issac.  Needless to say, you won't get far without them.  You start the game off with the most basic weapon, the Short Sword.  As you progress further on and find new materials, as well as the 'Combine' skill, you can fashion more powerful weapons for you to use, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
