Liu Bei Xuan De
Added Items :
Turtoise Amulet (Defense) Lv19
Speed Scroll (Speed) Lv14
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv9
Seven Star Sash (Luck) Lv20
Method :
Defeat all enemy generals.
Do not allow enemy generals to retreat and return to the battlefield for
more than 4 times.
Avoid the Liu Bei killing innocent soldiers cutscene by not killing enemy
soldiers.
All in under 10 minutes.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
If enemy generals retreat and return to the battlefield for more than 4
times, the weapon will not unlock.
The most enemy soldiers you can kill before the cutscene is triggered I've
noticed seems to be somewhere between 15 to 18. So kill less than that.
I suggest not equipping the Wind Scroll (attack radius increase), I found I
was able to avoid enemy soldiers better without the added attack radius.
Overall, other than the not killing enemy soldiers part, this weapon wasn't
too difficult to unlock.
Just defeating the 5 enemy generals alone would give you 100 points,
guaranteeing an "S" rank, so there's no need to worry about that.

Guan Yu Yun Chang
Added Items :
Peacock Urn (HP) Lv17
Speed Scroll (Speed) Lv17
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack) Lv13
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv20
Method :
Keep damage to the horse carriage to a minimum.
Defeat Yu Jin.
Defeat Yue Jin.
Defeat Li Dian.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
The first priority is to protect the horse carriage. As much as possible,
stay beside the horse carriage at all times.
You can defeat Yu Jin, Yue Jin, and Li Dian the 1st time they appear to
attack the castle, or the 2nd time they appear together with ambush troops.
If you defeat an enemy general, that enemy general will not appear later
together with their respective ambush troops.
It doesn't matter either way, but the advantage of defeating at least one of
them the 1st time they appear is that Guan Yu can take their horse and move
around much faster the remainder of the battle.
It is acceptable for the "Horse Carriage In Danger" message to appear 3
times. But if the message appears for the 4th time, the weapon is lost.

Zhang Fei Yi De
Added Items :
Tiger Amulet (Attack) Lv20
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv13
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase) Lv18
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv17
Method :
Do not let any enemies pass through the Chang Ban Bridge.
Defeat all enemy generals that come to the Chang Ban Bridge.
Defeat Cao Cao when he comes to the Chang Ban Bridge.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
It is acceptable if one team of enemy soldiers pass through the Chang Ban
Bridge.
Maybe it's just me, but I felt that if you bring a horse with you, and leave
it parked sideways across the entrance of the Chang Ban Bridge, it kind of
blocks the way for the enemy soldiers. It won't stop them completely, but it
does seem to slow them down.

Zhao Yun Zi Long
Added Items :
Dragon Amulet (Musou Gage) Lv18
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv14
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase) Lv20
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv13
Method :
Find the decorated wooden box containing Ah Do (random) in under 2 minutes.
Defeat all enemy generals.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Zhao Yun and Liu Bei both reach the bottom right Chang Ban Bridge.
All in under 13 minutes 30 seconds.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
I strongly suggest playing the game at least once before trying for the
weapon, mostly to get an idea of where the decorated wooden boxes appear in
the castle. Even though which decorated wooden box contains Ah Do is random,
where the decorated wooden boxes appear in the castle are always the same.
So knowing their locations beforehand will help in your search for Ah Do.
Because the 2 minute time limit is not plenty of time.
Saving the game after finding Ah Do is also recommended.
Defeat Cao Ren and Xu Huang to open the North castle gate.
Defeat Xu Chu, Xiahou Dun, Xiahou Yuan, Yu Jin, and Yue Jin to make Liu Bei
start retreating from the battlefield.
It is acceptable if Xu Chu, Xiahou Dun, Xiahou Yuan, Yu Jin, and Yue Jin are
defeated by allies and not by the player.

Ma Chao Meng Qi
Added Items :
Tiger Amulet (Attack) Lv12
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv20
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv20
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase) Lv15
Method :
Achieve at least 500 KO Count.
Receive Ma Chao is taking the lead message over 5 times.
Finish the stage achieving twice the KO Count as the ally general in the
second place.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
499 KO Count is an "A" rank.
500 KO Count and above can be an "S" rank.
But just achieving 500 KO Count won't unlock the weapon.
Immediately after game start, head to the bottom fort and fight in front of
the bottom enemy entry point, just far away enough from the entry point
captain that you don't attract him to you so that you won't have to fight
and defeat him. Enemy soldiers will come to you by themselves. Keep fighting
here and achieve twice as many KOs as the ally general in the second place.
Be mindful of the KO Count reports of your fellow ally Five Tiger Generals.
The 1st time I tried to unlock this weapon:
Ma Chao = 683 KO Count.
Zhang Fei = 450 KO Count report.
I didn't unlock the weapon.
The 2nd time:
Ma Chao = 772 KO Count.
Guan Yu = 400 KO Count report.
I didn't unlock the weapon.
The 3rd time:
Ma Chao = 484 KO Count.
Huang Zhong = 250 KO Count report.
I didn't unlock the weapon.
The 4th time:
Ma Chao = 561 KO Count.
Huang Zhong = 250 KO Count report.
I unlocked the weapon, but didn't save because I did not understand fully
and wanted to do some more testing.
Then after some more tests, when I was almost certain of the conclusion that
getting twice the KO Count as the ally general in the second place will
unlock the weapon, this result broke the rule:
Ma Chao = 928 KO Count.
Guan Yu = 450 KO Count report (2 seconds before the end of stage).
I did not unlock the weapon.
So I did some re-thinking, and started taking notice of the who's taking the
lead messages. So I started counting.
Test 1:
Ma Chao in the lead = 8 times (734 KO Count).
Zhao Yun in the lead = 0 times (250 KO Count).
Guan Yu in the lead = 2 times (200 KO Count).
I got the weapon.
Test 2:
Ma Chao in the lead = 6 times (585 KO Count).
Guan Yu in the lead = 1 time (250 KO Count).
I got the weapon.
Test 3:
Zhang Fei won.
Test 4:
Ma Chao in the lead = 4 times (775 KO Count).
Guan Yu in the lead = 1 time (300 KO Count).
I did not get the weapon.
Test 5:
Ma Chao in the lead = 5 times (585 KO Count).
Zhao Yun in the lead = 1 time (250 KO Count).
I got the weapon.
Taking all the above test results into consideration, I arrived at my
conclusion.

Huang Zhong Han Sheng
Added Items :
Peacock Urn (HP) Lv8
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack) Lv20
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense) Lv20
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv16
Method 1 :
Shoot Guan Yu off his horse before he challenges at the castle wall
(approximately 30 seconds into stage).
Defeat Zhou Cang.
Defeat Guan Ping.
Defeat Zhao Yun.
Defeat Zhang Fei.
Achieve 100 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Method 2 :
Shoot Guan Yu off his horse before he challenges at the castle wall
(approximately 30 seconds into stage).
Defeat 3 of Zhou Cang, Guan Ping, Zhao Yun, and Zhang Fei.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Right after the stage starts, go to Huang Zhong's front right castle edge
where the rocks are missing for a better view of the area outside the
castle.
Press the R2 button to switch the screen top right map into a zoomed in map,
so you can see Guan Yu faster when he appears.
After defeating an enemy general, take his horse to run around faster.
After defeating Zhou Cang and Guan Ping, there should be a Precious Item
Report, the Cleansed Flame Fire Arrow.
Other than having to shoot Guan Yu off his horse from such a long distance
with such a short time limit, this weapon was pretty easy to unlock.

Wei Yan Wen Chang
Added Items :
Peacock Urn (HP) Lv18
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense) Lv14
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv16
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv19
Method 1 :
Defeat Xiahou Wei.
Defeat Xiahou Hui.
Defeat Xiahou He.
In any order.
All before Zhuge Liang orders the all out attack on Wei Yan (approximately
2:30 into stage).
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Method 2 :
Defeat Xiahou Wei.
Defeat Xiahou Hui.
Defeat Xiahou He.
In any order.
After Zhuge Liang orders the all out attack on Wei Yan (approximately 2:30
into stage).
Defeat all Shu generals and sub-general as they appear (Ma Dai, Guan Xing,
Wang Ping, Zhang Bao, Jiang Wei).
Encounter Zhuge Liang.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Method 1 is a pain to pull off, I definitely do not recommend it unless you
are confident of your skills fighting with Wei Yan.
Method 2 is simple enough.
With method 2, if you did not defeat Wang Ping, just increase the KO Count
to 300 and you will still unlock the weapon.

Huang Yue Ying
Added Items :
Tiger Amulet (Attack) Lv18
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack) Lv13
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv14
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv18
Method :
Defeat the Five Tiger Generals (Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Huang Zhong,
Ma Chao).
Keep all or most Tiger Tanks safe.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Do not move too ahead of the tiger tanks, because enemy attack troops will
appear and attack the tiger tanks if you are too far away, and sometimes
close up gates behind you and block you from them, preventing you from going
back to rescue them.
Move slowly, this is a 60 minute stage, and a weapon that doesn't have a
time limit to unlock. So just walk alongside the tiger tanks and move with
the same pace as them.
It is acceptable to lose 2 tiger tanks, not more.

Jiang Wei Buo Yue
Added Items :
Peacock Urn (HP) Lv14
Wing Boots (Jump) Lv20
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack) Lv14
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv17
Method :
Defeat all 4 playable enemy generals plus 1 of the 2 generic enemy generals.
Keep eliminating Liu Shan's destination enemy entry points to stop him from
retreating for 8~9 minutes.
All the while keeping Liu Shan's HP at approximately more than half.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
In simpler terms, just defeat Cao Ren, Zhang He, Xu Chu, Xu Huang, plus
either Deng Ai or Zhong Hui.
And keep eliminating for 8~9 minutes the constantly reviving enemy entry
points that Liu Shan is headed towards to surrender.
Also, if Liu Shan's HP reaches approximately less than half, and says "Isn't
there anyone who can rescue me?", the weapon is lost.
A chance trick is to bring your strongest bodyguard team into the battle,
and leave them right where one of the entry point captains will reappear, if
you're lucky they can buy you some extra time by lowering the entry point
captain's HP a little before you reach him, or if you're very lucky, defeat
that entry point captain for you. But since this is Expert Difficulty after
all, don't count on that.

Muni Comment :
Eliminate the top left and bottom left enemy entry points.
Defeat Yue Ying and take over the Tiger Tanks.
To the North and South of the castle are Consecutive Arrows, defeat the
respective Guard Troop Captains to take over the Consecutive Arrows.
Be careful not to defeat any of the bomb tossing soldiers nearby, otherwise
Pang Tong's respectability will decrease, and the weapon will be lost.
At map right center is one more Guard Troop Captain, defeat him and take
over the Cloud Ladders.
Defeating the bomb tossing soldier nearby here is acceptable.
Protect the Cloud Ladders, ensure at least 1 of the 2 sets up on the castle
wall.
Pang Tong's respectability increased greatly message.

Cao Cao Meng De
Added Items :
Turtoise Amulet (Defense) Lv18
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack) Lv12
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv16
Seven Star Sash (Luck) Lv20
Method :
Defeat all 4 Shu generals (Zhao Yun, Guan Ping, Zhou Cang, Zhang Fei) before
ally back-up troops appear (approximately 10 minutes into stage).
Guan Yu lets Cao Cao go cutscene.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
If Zhang Fei is not defeated within approximately 10 minutes, ally back-up
troops will appear.
If ally generals are in trouble and calling for help, you must help them
first, because if ally generals are defeated, ally back-up troops will
appear ahead of time.
Guan Yu will appear after all 4 Shu generals are defeated.
After the Guan Yu lets Cao Cao go cutscene, just don't go to the escape
point. Instead, hang around and fight enemy soldiers until you reach 200 KO
Count, and the weapon is yours.

Xiahou Dun Yuan Rang
Added Items :
Turtoise Amulet (Defense) Lv16
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense) Lv20
Seven Star Sash (Luck) Lv12
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase) Lv18
Method :
Defeat Cao Xing immediately.
Go all the way Northward across the center water path before Yuan Shu
appears (approximately 5 minutes into stage).
Encounter Cao Xing after he reappears.
Achieve 100 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
A commonly made mistake is to exit the water path before going all the way
North. If you go up the stairs on the left side, that would not be all the
way North. The correct exit is the stairs on the right side at the North end
of the water path.
It seems after Cao Xing reappears, you only need to encounter him to get the
weapon, but I defeated him anyway.

Xiahou Yuan Miao Cai
Added Items :
Tiger Amulet (Attack) Lv10
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack) Lv19
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense) Lv19
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase) Lv17
Method :
Prevent the "Ally base guard troop decreased" message.
Achieve 400 KO Count.
All before Xiahou Dun's ally back-up troops appear.
Huang Zhong attacks.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
It is acceptable if ally base (map left) is infiltrated by enemies, just as
long as the "Ally base guard troop decreased" message doesn't appear.
For that message to appear, 4 enemy teams can reach the ally base. On the
5th team, the message will appear.
The time of Xiahou Dun's ally back-up troops' appearance is dependant on how
many enemies reach the ally base (map left). The more enemies reach the ally
base, the earlier Xiahou Dun will appear.
This weapon can be unlocked easily using 2 players. The KO Count is the
combined number between the 2 players.

Dian Wei
Added Items :
Turtoise Amulet (Defense) Lv15

Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv16
Method :
Defeat Hu Che Er after he appears.
Defeat Jia Xu after he appears.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
I strongly suggest eliminating all the enemy arrow soldiers first, because
not only are they a nuisance, they are also lethal.
Always defeat the constantly reappearing entry point captains first, they
give you much needed temporary in-game items.
Saving after receiving the weapon learned message is recommended, because it
will be a struggle getting Cao Cao (and Dian Wei) out of this mess alive.

Xu Chu Zhong Kang
Added Items :

Defeat Man Chong.
Defeat Dian Wei twice.
Do not allow the Farmland Damage Spread message to appear.
Do not allow the Ally Guard Team Destroyed message to appear.
Do not allow enemy Supply Troops to successfully deliver their supplies for
more than 3 times.
Achieve 80 KO Count.
For each time a "Farmland Damage Spread", "Ally Guard Team Destroyed", or
"Supply Troop Supply Successfully Delivered" message appears, add 10 more KO
Counts.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Here's a step by step sequence.
Defeat Yu Jin before defeating his Supply Troop Captain.
Defeat Dian Wei's 3 Supply Troop Captains.
Defeat Dian Wei.
Defeat Li Dian before defeating his Supply Troop Captain.
Defeat Dian Wei for the 2nd time, it's acceptable to ignore his 3 Supply
Troop Captains this time.
Encounter Dian Wei for the 3rd time.
Defeat Yue Jin after he appears (approximately 4 minutes into stage at map
East), before defeating his Supply Troop Captain.
Defeat Man Chong after he appears (approximately 6 minutes into stage at map
Southwest), before defeating his Supply Troop Captain.
You should receive a Precious Item Report together with the weapon learned
message, the Meat Bun Sack.
Defeating the enemy generals' Supply Troop Captains (after defeating the
respective enemy generals) is not necessary for unlocking the weapon, but is
nevertheless recommended.
It is acceptable if enemies start pillaging. It is only unacceptable when
the message tells you that farmland damage has spread.
The "add 10 more KO Counts" thing is only conjecture based on my various
tests. There might be a limit to how many messages could appear before the
weapon is lost, but I never tested the limits. So just keep the message
appearances to a minimum and hope for the best. Or just keep them from
appearing altogether.

Method :
Keep all 4 map top castle ally Guard Troop Captains alive until Zhou Tai
appears (approximately 5:30 to 6 minutes into stage).
Achieve 300 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Defeating enemy generals is not a part of the requirement, but it is
nevertheless recommended, for doing so will raise ally morale and prolong
the survival of the ally base.
Li Dian does not need to be kept alive.
Bring your strongest bodyguard team with you, and leave them with the Guard
Troop Captains when you need to venture far away from the castle gate.
Equip the Morale Drum if you have it, it does help.

attacking the castle (approximately 2 minutes into stage).
Defeat all enemy generals except Guan Yu.
Achieve 200 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
There will be 2 Cloud Ladders in front of the 2 West castle gates and 2

Cao Ren Zi Xiao
Added Items :
Peacock Urn (HP) Lv18
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense) Lv17
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense) Lv19
Seven Star Sash (Luck) Lv12
Method :
Meet with Niu Jing only after Niu Jing reaches 8 star morale.
Defeat Han Dang and Gan Ning after meeting with Niu Jing.
Defeat the 2 ambush troop generals (Zhou Tai, Zhou Yu) after they appear.
All the while keeping Niu Jing's HP as high as possible.
Achieve at least 250 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Defeat enemy soldiers and Niu Jing's morale will rise.
Eliminating enemy entry points will also raise Niu Jing's morale.
If you defeat both Han Dang and Gan Ning, you will meet with Niu Jing
automatically. It is acceptable if you defeat one of the two before meeting
with Niu Jing.
After meeting with Niu Jing, there will be a Precious Item Report, the
Bodyguard Manual.
The 250 KO Count seems to be the minimum required for unlocking the weapon.
If Niu Jing loses more HP, or if the battle took longer time, the KO Count
will also have to be higher to compensate for the less than acceptable
performance.
I suggest equipping the Morale Drum if you have it, it does help.

Then achieve 100 KO Count, not before.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Method 1 is impossible! It was pure luck that I was finally able to
accidentally do it once! I do not recommend this method!
With method 2, the 100 KO Count must be achieved after defeating the 2 enemy
generals, not before, otherwise the weapon will not unlock.

Don't go outside the castle into Cao Pi's army and Zhen Ji will remain in
Yuan Xi's army.
Defeat all enemy generals and sub-generals except Cao Pi.
Achieve 150 KO Count.

Muni Comment :
The method is basically the same, regardless of which army you choose to
side with at the beginning of the stage.
Just defeat all enemy generals and sub-generals and achieve 150 KO Count.

Sima Yi Zhong Da
Added Items :

Seven Star Sash (Luck) Lv11
Method :
Trigger the rain manually instead of wait for it to happen automatically.
Defeat 9 of the 10 enemy generals.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
The rain will fall automatically approximately 5 minutes into the stage.
To trigger the rain manually, achieve 26 KO Count at the beginning mine
field area of the game in under 5 minites.
The 10 enemy generals of this stage are Zhuge Liang, Wei Yan, Gao Xiang,
Wang Ping, Yue Ying, Liao Hua, Zhang Yi, Ma Dai, Jian Yong, and Jiang Wei.
Defeat any 9 of them.
Wang Ping's ambush troops will appear after you go up the map right path.
Yue Ying will appear after you deplete Zhuge Liang's HP to approximately
less than half.
If Sima Yi reaches the end of the map top right path, he will successfully
escape from the battlefield and end the stage. Do not make the mistake of
doing so before you get the weapon, like I accidentally did the first time I
played the stage, which was also the first time I tried to unlock this
weapon.

Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack) Lv16
Method :
Defeat Hua Xiong.
Defeat Hu Xin.
Defeat Lu Bu after he appears.
All before passing through the map center castle.
Eliminate the map top and map right enemy entry points.
Encounter Dong Zhuo before the map left ally castle (Chang Sha Castle) is
breached (6 minutes into stage).
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Lu Bu's enemy back-up troops will appear approximately 30 seconds into the
stage.
The map right enemy entry point will appear together with Lu Bu.
An enemy entry point will appear on the top side of the map center castle
after you defeat Hua Xiong and Hu Xin. It is acceptable to ignore this enemy
entry point.
If you defeated Lu Bu in under 2 minutes, you will receive a Precious Item
Report, the Art Of War.
If you pass through the map center castle (meaning go in the right gate and
go out the left gate) without first defeating Hua Xiong and Hu Xin, the map
left ally castle (Chang Sha Castle) will open its gates immediately. Which
is not what you want if you are trying to unlock this weapon.
I suggest equipping the Matchless Shadow Saddle, and then wait for Lu Bu to
appear at the beginning of the stage first and take his Red Hare. This way
you'll have the best ride of all, a Red Hare you won't fall off of.

Method :
Reach the Wei Ship without being discovered by any Wu troops in under 3
minutes 30 seconds.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
After game start, immediately run toward the gate at the center, staying
close to the left wall.
When you reach the small alcove right below the gate, a message will appear
saying that the Guard Troop has heard some noises. Immediately run to the
right wall.
When the Guard Troop leaves the gate to investigate the noise, run pass the
gate, still keeping close to the right wall.
Run directly across to the left edge along the water and continue upwards,
avoiding Ling Tong.
It is acceptable to be seen by the Entry Point soldiers, their discovery of
you doesn't count.
Move past Ling Tong when he's far away and continue upwards still keeping
close to the left edge.
At the turn of the land, go into arrow aiming view and watch the Guard Troop
in front of that last gate, they will move forward just as Lu Meng is
returning and coming close to you.
After they've run a distance, head for that last gate.
It is acceptable if you are seen right after passing the gate.
Run past Gan Ning and sprint onto the Wei Ship.
If Gan Ning discovers you at the last second, it is still good.
You should get the weapon learned message at stage end, with a clear time of
around 2:30 ~ 2:40.
I tested, 3:30 is the limit for unlocking the weapon. 3:31 is no good.
I strongly suggest trying the stage out in an easier difficulty first to get
a feel of the layout of the stage before attempting to unlock the weapon.

Method :
Unite with the 4 female soldiers each within 2~3 minutes of their discovery.
Achieve 200 KO Count before opening the West gate (defeat Xu Sheng and Ding
Feng), to prevent Zhao Yun's back-up troops from appearing.
Do not let Zhou Tai reach the map bottom left boat and seal the retreat
route.
Liu Bei reaches the map bottom left boat.
Learned Lv10 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Zhao Yun will appear if you open the West gate (defeat Xu Sheng and Ding
Feng) without 200 KO Count, making you lose the weapon.
Zhou Tai will start to run toward the map bottom left boat after Jiang Qin
is defeated, or after Zhou Tai's HP is approximately halfway depleted. So
defeat Zhou Tai first and quickly to prevent him from doing so.
There's no need to hurry when trying to unlock this weapon, everything can
be done casually. Just fight alongside Liu Bei and advance slowly to make
sure he's safe.
Even the discovery messages of the female soldiers are triggered manually
and not with time.
The uniting with the 1st female soldier is automatic.
After you pass the first castle gate, the 2nd female soldier discovered
message will appear.
After you pass where the 2nd female soldier is, the 3rd female soldier
discovered message will appear.
After you pass the West gate, the 4th female soldier discovered message will
appear.
They're all manually triggered.
So after game start, just stay close to Liu Bei.
Unite with the 1st female soldier in the castle, eliminate the top right
entry point first to have an easier time.
Defeat Cheng Pu and Pan Zhang and open the castle bottom gate.
Go down the map right path and unite with the 2nd female soldier in the
middle of that path.
Defeat the gate captain and go down to the South of the huge pit and unite
with the 3rd female soldier.
Go up the left path and defeat Xu Sheng and Ding Feng, opening the West gate
behind them, making sure to have 200 KO Count already so Zhao Yun won't
appear.
Run all the way to the top left corner of the map and unite with the 4th and
last female soldier.
Defeat Jiang Qin and Zhou Tai.
Escort Liu Bei down to the map bottom left retreat boat and the weapon is
yours.

Retreat to the broken bridge at the bottom of the map riding on a horse.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
There is a certain degree of randomness as to where Zhang Liao will make his
multiple appearances.
You only need to defeat Zhang Liao 3 times. He will continue to re-appear a
couple more times, but there is no point in fighting him till the end.
Defeating Zhang Liao the 1st time = 10 points.
Defeating Zhang Liao the 2nd time = 20 points.
Defeating Zhang Liao the 3rd time = 10 points.
Defeating Zhang Liao the 4th time and beyond = 0 points.
So 3 times is enough.
After defeating Zhang Liao for the 3rd time, there will be a Supply Troop
Appearance, the Musou Armor.
While on the subject of points.
Surviving ally generals = 10 points per ally general.
300 KO Count = 10 points.
500 KO Count = 20 more points.

in under 8:50 minutes and the weapon is yours.

Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
If when you encounter Hua Xin, only 9 troops or less have joined you, the
weapon is lost.
It doesn't matter if defected troops get eliminated after joining with you.
Just as long as you don't lose them all, because that will result in a game
over.
Hua Xin doesn't need to be kept alive.
There is a total of 15 troops on the map waiting to defect to you.
Here's a list:
East Fort = 4 troops.
Path between East Fort and Center Castle = 2 troops.
North Fort = 2 troops (an arrow troop at the bottom gate after defeating Fan
Neng).
Path between North Fort and Northwest Fort = 2 troops.
Northwest Fort = 1 troop.
Hua Xin = 1 troop.
Path between Northwest Fort and Center Castle = 1 troop (after rescuing Hua
Xin).

It is acceptable if ally generals defeat Zhou Cang and Liao Hua.
I suggest saving after receiving the weapon learned message, because Guan Yu
is retreating pretty quickly, and it is just possible that you might fail to
stop him before he successfully retreats and thus lose both the battle and
the weapon.

Muni Comment :
Li Dian and Yue Jing will start to re-gather their troops approximately 2
minutes into the stage.
If you defeat them before 2 minutes, a Precious Item Report will appear, the
Buckler.
Try to accumulate as much KO Count as possible during the period of time
before Cao Xiu and Zhang Liao appears.
Defeating one of the latter 2 enemy generals will give you an "S" rank. I
recommend defeating Cao Xiu, because he's a lot easier to defeat than Zhang
Liao.
Just a mention, to clear the stage you need to defeat the correct enemy
entry point captain to find the route of retreat. The correct one is said to
be random, but of the 8 times I played, the exit had always been the bottom
entry point. So maybe that is the one?

It is acceptable to let Sun Quan's sub-generals die after rescuing them.
So much testing went into the full-understanding of the unlocking of this
weapon that it's not even funny anymore.
I can't believe I will have to test all of it again with the Big Sword Edit
Character. But at least I already have the testing guidelines figured out,
it's better than starting again completely from scratch I guess.

Defeat the 3 Guest Generals prior to the falling rock ambush attack, each of

Achieve 300 KO Count.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Defeating the first three Guest Generals each under a minute of their
appearances is not as difficult as it sounds, but it's still pretty risky,
so I suggest saving in between each one just to be on the safe side.
As it turns out, getting the weapon isn't the hard part, the hard part is
completing the stage. The 2 remaining Guest Generals are very difficult to
catch up to. So it is definitely recommended that you save the game after
receiving the weapon message as well.
I recommend defeating the Guest General at the center of the map first, then
the one at the top right. Right after the Sun Ce event, turn around and run
directly to the map center Guest General, do not waste any time fighting
enemy soldiers along the way, just keep jumping past them, there is barely
enough time.

Muni Comment :
If you defeat the 4 generals (Xiahou Dun, Xu Chu, Cao Ren, Dian Wei) before
Cao Cao's 4th appearance, they will re-appear, forcing you to defeat them
twice unnecessarily. So wait until after Cao Cao's 4th appearance then
defeat them to minimize trouble.
A convenient thing to do would be to deplete the 4 generals' HP down low and
leave them, then come back and defeat them after Cao Cao's 4th appearance.

What is there to comment on? Except to say kill kill and kill some more.
Just make sure not to defeat all three of Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei

It is acceptable to be detected by enemy patrolling guard soldiers. After Lu

If you got to Dong Zhuo without being detected, and Lu Bu didn't appear,
it's just as well.
After defeating Dong Zhuo, the castle gates will close, just fight your way
toward the escape point normally, defeating enemy generals along the way to
open the closed gates. At defeating Hua Xiong, the weapon learned message

If Yuan Shao never lost integrity, the weapon will be unlocked with 100 KO
Count.
If Yuan Shao loses integrity once, you can increase the achieved KO Count to
200 and still unlock the weapon.
If Yuan Shao loses integrity twice or more, the weapon is lost.
When ally generals call for help, go to them immediately, otherwise Yuan
Shao will lose integrity.
When the White Horse Team appears, get all of them off their horses at once,
otherwise they will challenge Yuan Shao's integrity.
If either Zhang He or Tien Feng show signs of distrust toward Yuan Shao, the

Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
At 8 minutes into the stage:
4 or more enemy entry points remain = 0 points.
3 enemy entry points remain = 40 points.
2 enemy entry points remain = 60 points.
1 or 0 enemy entry point remain = 80 points.
100 KO Count = 10 points.
200 KO Count = 20 points.
In other words, eliminate 6 of the 7 enemy entry points, achieve 100 KO
Count, and stay alive for 8 minutes.
From the remaining enemy entry point, enemy generals will appear. If you
don't defeat them quickly, enemy entry points you eliminated will reappear.
If an enemy entry point reappears, just eliminate it again.
The enemy generals that appear will vary depending on which enemy entry
point remains.
If before the 8 minutes are up, with only 1 last enemy entry point remaining
and you already have 100 KO Count, your allies eliminate that last remaining
enemy entry point, you will win the battle, and also receive the weapon.

Without being discovered at all by the Guard Troops and Zhao Yun.
Learned Lv11 weapon message.
Muni Comment :
Being discovered by Wang Ping is unavoidable, so stopping his Messenger is
the first thing you must do.
Fighting Wang Ping is not necessary.
After defeating the Messenger, head for the right gate of the first fence.
The Guard Troop of that gate should just be starting their rounds leftward.
Then head for the right gate of the second fence. The Guard Troop of that
gate should just be starting their rounds leftward.
Then head for the right gate of the third fence, staying close to the right
wall. The Guard Troop of that gate should just be starting their rounds
downward. If you keep to the right wall, they should just miss you.
Then just run straight across the enemy base to Zhuge Liang, there should be
absolutely no one in the way.
I suggest saving after the weapon learned message, because Zhuge Liang is a
pain to defeat.
If you are discovered by regular enemy soldiers, just stop the Messengers
that get sent out from delivering their messages.
If you are discovered by the Guard Troops or Zhao Yun, the weapon is lost.

3. Change the game difficulty to Novice.
4. Do not re-start the saved mid-game.
5. Start a new game.
6. Soft reset in-game (Select+Start).
7. Re-start the saved mid-game.
This is a convenient trick for unlocking Lv11 weapons.
* Ever since I posted this trick, I was questioned by many about whether I
got my weapons this way.
Well, I have gotten almost all 47 weapons once already before this trick was
discovered, so the answer would have to be no.
But with the many tests I decided to do on each character's Lv11 weapons
since I decided to make a guide for it, I must admit I did perform some of
the tests using this trick. With so many theories and possible scenarios to
test out, the Expert difficulty is simply too time consuming, and time is
the one thing I just don't have at the moment.
So yes, when I tested the unlocking methods for the Lv11 weapons, I did use
this cheat when the battle is too tough.
But no, I have never gotten a weapon personally using this cheat.
With the SSM series, I have never used any cheats, even though I did
discover some cheats first, and help develop PAR codes for a couple of the
games. But that's just for the information. I have completed all the games
in the SSM series fully, and I have never once used any of the cheats I
discovered to do so.

[Playing Xtreme Mode Without Deleting the Previous Save Data]
You need 2 memory cards for this trick.
After playing, select "Mid-game Save" and make a mid-game save on
MemoryCard1.
In the main menu, select "Reload Saved Game" from MemoryCard1.
After it loads, the game will ask if it is okay to overwrite the existing
save data.
Take out MemoryCard1 and insert MemoryCard2.
Overwrite onto MemoryCard2.
This way the previous save data will be kept safe.
Repeat after each mission accomplished if desired.

[Does Item Level Overlap with Lv11 Weapon's Attached Item Level?]
Yes, they do, but with limitations.
These items add up to a maximum of Lv20 and stops:
Peacock Urn (HP Gage Up)
Dragon Amulet (Musou Gage Up)
Tiger Amulet (Attack Up)
Turtoise Amulet (Defense Up)
Elixir (Musou Gage Increase Up)
Herbal Remedy (Charge Attack Up)
These items add up exceeding the Lv20 limit:
Huang Zhong's Bow (Arrow Attack Up)
Nanman Armor (Arrow Defense Up)
Horned Helmet (Ride Attack Up)
Cavalry Armor (Ride Defense Up)
However, with Arrow Defense and Ride Defense, if the level goes too high it
risks overflowing, resulting in buggy one-hit-kills. So be aware of that.
Whether or not these items add up exceeding the Lv20 limit is unknown at
this point:
Speed Scroll (Speed Up)
Wing Boots (Jump Up)
Seven Star Sash (Luck Up)

[Relationship Between Difficulty and Rank]
Here's the relationship between game difficulty and rank:

Expert
Highest Point = 100
Highest Rank = S

Hard
Highest Point = 87
Highest Rank = A

Normal
Highest Point = 75
Highest Rank = A

Easy
Highest Point = 62
Highest Rank = A

Novice
Highest Point = 50
Highest Rank = B

[Best Stage for Weapon Experience?]
Legend of Xiao Qiao.
If you defeat the 4 generals (Xiahou Dun, Xu Chu, Cao Ren, Dian Wei) before
Cao Cao appears for the 4th time, they will re-appear for you to defeat for
a 2nd time.
Then there's Xiahou Yuan that appears together with Cao Cao's 5th
appearance. Plus the 5 times you need to defeat Cao Cao.
That's a total of 14 enemy generals to defeat in one stage.

[Best Stage for Attack Strength Growth?]
Legend of Xiao Qiao.
If you defeat the 4 generals (Xiahou Dun, Xu Chu, Cao Ren, Dian Wei) before
Cao Cao appears for the 4th time, they will re-appear for you to defeat for
a 2nd time.
Then there's Xiahou Yuan that appears together with Cao Cao's 5th
appearance. Plus the 5 times you need to defeat Cao Cao.
That's Attack+8 Swords x 9 enemy generals.
That's on Hard Difficulty or higher of course.

[Best Stage for Defense Strength Growth?]
Legend of Dong Zhuo.
Defeat the 6 Shi Chang Shi eunuchs.
Defeat enemy back-up general Yuan Shao.
That's Defense+4 Shields x 6 enemy generals, and Defense+8 Shield x 1 enemy
general.
That's on Hard Difficulty or higher of course.

[Extra HP Growth?]
Remember the valiant generals that appear randomly in the original Musou and
Free modes?
They are still around in Musou and Free modes if you load the original SSM3
disk.
And the good news is that their appearance possibilities are raised.
How is that good news?
That's good news because now when you defeat these valiant generals, they
drop HP growth Dim Sum items. So if you get the Dim Sum already in the
stage, and also defeat a valiant general, you will grow your character's HP
by twice the usual amount.

[A Trick To Not Lose Duels]
During a duel, stand against the border fence, and aim your arrow towards
the outside of the duel area.
You will never get attacked in this condition.
Useful when you are about to lose a duel.


[The Last Movie?]
To unlock the last movie in the Movie Gallery, complete the Legend Modes of
all the characters.
It is a staff roll movie.
At the same time, the 46th song in the Sound Test will also be unlocked.

[Song 33?]
The 33rd song in the Sound Test will be unlocked after you load the original
SSM3 disk once.
