In FFVIII, the weapon system is somewhat different compared to the other FFs in the series. You won't be able to buy weapons at the shops or steal/mug them from bosses or monsters. Instead you'll upgrade your weapons at junk shops with items that you were able to accumulate along the way. Information on upgrading weapons are available at Weapon Monthly Magazines, which you can buy or find in different locations.
Rinoa's Blaster Edge is a type of projectile weapon. Projectie weapons inflict the same amount of damage even if the character is placed in the back row. But since there's no back row and front row in FFVIII, then there's no use in knowing that :S
