If the player brings Paganini the data from the terminal in Seabed during Quest icon.pngThe West Tower quest, the "Enhance weapon's Photon" option will be available in Paganini's exchange in Quest icon.pngGallon's Shop for the character that completes this sidequest (which can be completed on any difficulty).

The "Enhance weapon's Photon" option allows the player to increase attribute percentages on their weapons in exchange for set amounts of Tool icon.pngPhoton Drops, at a rate of four Photon Drops per 1%, or 20 Photon Drops per 5% on an attribute. A Tool icon.pngPhoton Sphere can also be used to add 30% to an attribute, but only if the attribute in question is 70% or less.

The following restrictions apply to adding attributes:

  • A weapon cannot have more than three attributes
    • Sealed weapons and their unsealed counterparts may not have more than two, including Hit%
  • Attributes cannot exceed 100%
  • Hit% cannot be added to a weapon
  • ES Weapons cannot have attributes

To unlock this option, a character must have already collected Quest icon.pngThe East Tower data for Paganini (refer to adding specials to ES weapons for directions), then follow these steps:

  • Start the quest Quest icon.pngThe West Tower
  • Talk to Hopkins in the lab (he is in the same place you would find him in Quest icon.pngGallon's Shop to access Paganini)
  • Traverse the Seabed Upper levels until you find and access the terminal containing the Research Data (you will receive a Quest Board item)
    • Unlike the previous sidequest, you do not have to continue onto the Control Tower to complete this sidequest. You may simply access the terminal and return to Pioneer 2 via Tool icon.pngTelepipe or Ryuker.pngRyuker
  • Return to the lab and talk to Hopkins before ending the quest

Note: Unlike The East Tower, there is no easy way to check through Hopkins if you have already completed The West Tower sidequest, as Hopkins in Gallon's Shop will say the same "My father is working on a huge project right now." line, both before completing the previous sidequest as well as after completing this one. Using a Photon Sphere to boost an attribute by 30% saves 21 Photon Drops in value, as doing so with PDs alone would cost 120.
