A ranged weapon that maxes Barret's survivability

With its max HP upgrades that total to 1250, as well as skills that save Barret when he hits the low HP range, this weapon's strength lies in survivability. This weapon is particularly good if you do not intend to control Barret on your own much.
First prioritize the HP buffs, followed by all of the Low HP skills. After maxing out his HP and defensive stats, spend your remaining SP on boosting his attack stat, and then unlocking whatever skills remain.
