There's a wiki with a complete list here: http://weapon.edf.jpn.com/4-1/?p=r

I've done this twice now. I farmed all the weapons on the JP version without having the DLC. With the US version, I went straight for it. Took me 124 hours to unlock every mission and farm all 802 weapons. The JP version has 801, but includes a code for a gold mech. This is apparently on disc for the US version, hence the difference.

So WHY grind all the weapons first? Less headaches later, really. Think about it. You'll need tons of armor to touch Inferno anyway, and you can burn right through the lower difficulties offline once you have the right tools. Might as well farm now. Then you can grab whatever boxes are close as you play through the game to build your armor as you go without wasting a ton of time hunting every last weapon box with slow as hell classes. Remember, you can also splitscreen offline with 2 classes to get completion for both at the same time.

Anyway, I had the itch after realizing the DLC missions were out here. I didn't have those for the JP version, so I approached this differently. I've been playing offline all week with 2 controllers. I ran through every mission (Main and both DLCs) on easy to unlock them all using Wing Diver on both controllers to get her armor building up a bit. I dialed up difficulty at mission 14 and 75 to get a few decent things, and finally got the IdunnE Custom. For 75 on Hardest/Inferno at low armor, you want to use a good Thunder Sniper (D or 40) and stay way back to clear each section. They reflect off walls. With the Idunn acquired, I was able to start running Golden Darkness (DLC pack 1, M21) on Inferno with only 1500 armor. I kept it 2x Wing Diver until I had all but 2 weapons for her. They were both level 87 special junk I don't use, so I left them go a bit. What I did from there was put each of the other classes on the 2nd controller and used it to follow my WD through and collect weapons. Yes, a little annoying, but you can use them to help out a little too. For example, the Air Raider leaving a pile of C70 at the start to blast a bunch of gold ants through the wall, and popping powerups onto the WD to amp her damage. My goal running this way wasn't to get every weapon, but to get every weapon above level 50. I was mostly grabbing the stuff from the gold ants with my WD at first, as following her through that area is more difficult. I worked it out though once I finally got those last 2 weapons for her. Once I had everything above level 50, I farmed the 2nd tunnel exit on mission 15 for 30-60 minutes at a time, ended and started again until I finished farming for each class. My last weapon was the Ranger's level 3 bound gun. lol

Now I'm about to start online and offline missions to go for 100%-100%. My armor stats after all this fun are as follows:

Ranger 3725
Wing Diver 6351
Air Raider 3770
Fencer 2583

Kind of funny the Fencer has the faster armor gain rate and still ended up with the least armor.

This is just a overview of what I feel was the fastest way to bang it out. You're free to farm for good weapons then work on more missions and go back to farm the rest later. Just putting it out there.
