We have some useful information now for those that are specifically looking for where to get the Sturdy Helixhorn in FFXV for the Ultima Blade.
This is one of the best FFXV weapons for Noctis to use, but we’re willing to bet that many of you are stuck trying to find this item as it is not attached to any specific quest later in the game.
Instead, it is a random drop that you can get from a certain enemy during a certain hunt and here is the FFXV Sturdy Helixhorn location for those that need it.
You need to go to Old Lestallum and start the ‘Scrap it Now’ hunt. You have to face three Leukorn enemies and you can only get the item by breaking the Leukorn’s appendage with a warp attack from distance.
We know that the Duplicorn can also drop the Sturdy Helixhorn but the rate is much higher from the Leukorn so we suggest you get it from them – the method is simply keep warp striking until you get it, if you don’t reload the game and try again.
Weapons such as Sword of the Wise and other weapons that improve appendage break rate will help you here, so let us know how you get on.
Once you have it, simply take it to Cid and you can upgrade the Engine Blade III for the mighty Ultima Blade – one of the best weapons in Final Fantasy XV along with the Balmung.
