Soulbound weapons are the most powerful set of weapons in the game. In this guide I will explore each of the Soulbound Weapons and where to find them, as well as the unique abilities that will be acquired once they are upgraded.

Pillars of Eternity 2 Soulbound Weapon Locations

After completing these requirements a new weapon level will unlock in-turn upgrading weapon quality and granting unique abilities, making these weapons a must have.

Pretty much born with gamepad in my hands and been gaming ever since. Love for RPGs started with Fallout 1 and 2. Free time is used for more gaming, training, watching MMA, soccer, movies and moaning about today's world and the stuff that kids do these days. What do they do besides phones and CoD anyway?
