Start with additional characters:
Start the game with a memory card with a saved game from Dynasty Warriors 2. Some characters unlocked in Dynasty Warriors 2 will be available in your new game.

Hint: Play as Lu Bu:
On Hu Loa Gate, get over 1000 KOs and defeat Lu Bu. This can only be done while on the Allied forces.
ElPikaloco.

An easier way to get over 1000 KOs on Hu Lao Gate is play on the easy difficulty setting, then pay attention to the enemy gates. If you see a lot of enemy units pouring out, make sure to put your bodyguards on defense then stay near the gate opening. KO the enemies as they appear. Try not to KO the Gate Captain or no more units will appear. This is especially critical around the three gates in Dong Zhuo's fortress where you can accumulate over 450 KOs.
Craig.

Hint: Play as Fu Xi:
Clear Musou mode with Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Jian.
Element2789.

Hint: Play as Meng Ho:
Play the Nanman campaign under the easy difficulty setting. When you fight Men Ho for the fifth time (where you have to break down the wall to get to him), stay where you defeated him. He should appear where you fought him the first time. Defeat him once more to unlock Meng Ho as a selectable character.
Stephen Senko.

Hint: Play as Nu Wa:
Clear Musou mode with Sun Shang Xiang, Xiao Qiao, Da Qiao, and Zhen Ji.
Element2789.

Hint Art Of War Scroll special item:
Play The Siege Of Hei Fei Castle as the Blue forces. Defeat all generals except Sun Quan and the special item message will appear. Go to the big boat that Sun Quan is on to receive the Art of War Scroll. It doubles the time of the effect of the Defense and Attack times two for thirty seconds and Musou full for ten seconds.
Andrew Ponder and DiabloManiac5.

Hint: Black Shadow special item:
Play Huang Gai under the hard difficulty setting at the battle of Chi Bi for Allied forces. Follow orders to execute the fire attack against the Wei (Cao Cao's) forces. Defeat Zhang Liao (and possibly some other generals as well) before defeating Cao Cao. A "Special Item" should be found near the place of prayer at the southwestern end of the map. The Shadow Rod is a +44 attack weapon with 6 hits. It also adds +27 Musou Charge, +82 HP Max, +57 Defense, +52 Mounted Attack, and +23 Reach.
Richard Jenkins.

Hint: Bodyguard Manual special item:
At the Siege Of He Fei Castle level, go to where Xhu Zhu is located. Defeat him on the bridge and the "Special Item Discovered" message will appear. Then, go to the north and turn left out of the "room" the bridge is in. If you run into a broken bridge with a group of bowmen on the other side, then you have gone too far. Note: The Musou +10 is in the room with the bowmen. Turn right up the long, thin passage that leads north. The item is in a box where the passage dead ends. This is directly outside the closed door that leads back to where the bowmen are located. Then, defeat Sima Yi to keep the item.
Aubrey.

Hint: Buckler special item:
This item prevents you from be overpowered while blocking. Play the He Fie level as the Wu side. Allow Taishi Ci to get killed in the arrow attack, then retreat with Sun Quan to the lower right corner of the level, to the broken bridge. You will jump over the bridge with Sun Quan. About five minutes later, Zhang Liao will attack Sun Quan. Defeat Zhang Liao and he will drop the item. This item is very useful when blocking, especially when fighting against Lu Bu.
Brian Donner and Smarg1.

Hint: Cao Cao's special item:
Play the Yellow Turban level, on the Han side. You must defeat Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang, in that order, without any gates being lost. Once you have done this, a supply team will appear on the northwest enemy entry point and will make its way to the entry point on the top center of the screen. Kill the supply captain to get the Cao Cao's fourth weapon, Wrath Of Heaven. This weapon is well worth the work. His sixth attack has a purple haze around it and will kill anyone on contact except a Boss.
Brian Donner.

Hint: Dian Wei's special item:
Play the Battle At Wan Castle level as Dian Wei under the hard difficulty setting . Defeat general Hu Che Er. A supply captain will appear in the south. Defeat him to get Dian Wei's fourth weapon, which as HP +84, Attack +27, and Musou Charge +28.
DiabloManiac5 and Craig.

Hint: Defender special item:
In the Battle of Wu Zhang Plains under the hard difficulty setting as the Wei force, find a place where an intermission sequence starts and you see shooting stars. A special item message should appear for the Defender. This is almost impossible to obtain with one person. Both of your characters should be at full stats with their fourth weapon. This item will have your character's Defense x2 when near death.
David Ast and DiabloManiac5.

Hint: Diao Chan's special item:
Play the Battle of Hu Lao Gate under the hard difficulty setting as Dong Zhuo's forces. Kill Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and Liu Bei. Note: Liu Bei must be the last one to be killed. The special item should be close to the East Gate.
Dennis Rodman and Blacks42.

To unlock Diao Chan's fourth weapon, kill Yuan Shu. It will appear near Sun Jian's unit. Note: If you want to get better items, this weapon is the best one to use as it has Luck +30.
BSlipknot4.

Hint: Diao Qiao's special item:
At the Battle of You Ting, kill Zhang He. Her fourth weapon can now be found in the top left corner near the far left Gate.
george northam, Alex, and Blacks42.

Hint: Dong Zhuo's special item:
Play Dong Zhuo in Battle of Hu Lao Gate as Dong Zhuo's forces under the hard difficulty setting. First, destroy Liu Bei's army by killing Liu Bei himself. It is not necessary to kill Guan Yu and Zhang Fei. Dong Zhuo will tell Diao Chan to go to the front lines. Wait for Diao Chan to defect. It may take a while. After she defects, quickly kill her before Lu Bu does. The special item message for Dong Zhuo's fourth weapon should appear in the center of the map.
Dennis Rodman.

Select Dong Zhuo and his forces for the Battle Of Hu Lao Gate. Wait five to ten minutes until Dong Zhuo says "Diao Chan, go to the front". When Hua Xiong dies, Diao Chan will defect. Quickly kill her before Lu Bu does. The special item message for Dong Zhuo's fourth weapon should appear at the bottom of the map. Note: This will not work if your bodyguards kill Diao Chan.
ThunderWave200.

Hint: Fire Arrow special item:
Play the Battle Of Chi Bi level under any difficulty setting. Ride or run as fast as you can to Zhou Yu and kill him. This must be done before the fire attack starts. A special item message will appear. The item can be found where you usually kill Xiahou Dun/Huang Gai's destination point.
julian and Bucky Spudwater.

Play the Battle of Chi Bi level as Cao Cao's forces. Defeat Huang Gai before he completes his fire attack. Then, attack and kill Zhao Yu. When he has been defeated, a special item will appear where you defeated Huang Gai. It engulfs your arrows in flame, which continues to damage an enemy when they are hit.
Jordan Hyde.

Hint: Fu Xi's special item:
At the Surprise Attack On Liu Biao level, play as Liu Biao's forces under the hard difficulty setting with Fu Xi. Kill Cheng Pu, Han Dang, and Huang Gai. Fu Xi's fourth weapon may now be found on the left side of the map.
Christopher Miskolczi.

Hint: Gan Ning:
At the Battle Of He Fei level, defeat 480 soldiers before Gan Ning launches his surprise attack. After you do, go to where Gan Ning is fighting and defeat him. You may also get a special item called the Power Scroll.
jake ryans.

Hint: Gan Ning's special item:
Play the Battle At He Fei level as Gan Ning under the hard difficulty setting. Let Taishi Ci die from Zhang Liao's attack. Once he dies, a supply unit will appear near Cao Cao (when the level begins). Start going all the way up to where Cao Cao is located. When the supply unit appears, he will immediately retreat.
Derek Spies and DiabloManiac5.

Hint: Gold Harness special item:
This is probably the hardest item to obtain in the game: Make sure you are playing on the easy difficulty setting. Kill Pang Dai and Ma Dai. Make Han Sui defect. Han Sui's defection is based on morale, not time. Your morale on Cao Cao's team has to be higher then Ma Chao's. After the morale drop he will defect sometime during the next two minutes. Protect Han Sui. If you are not careful, he will die before he has the chance to defect. Once he does defect, kill everyone except Ma Chao. After a little while he will retreat behind Tong Gate. After a very long period of time, the supply team will appear. It does take a long time, so be careful and the sooner you accomplish the other tasks the better.
Blacks42.

Han Sui's defection is not based on time or morale. He must get close to Cao Cao. It is recommend that you use Cao Cao on this level. Some "tasks" must be completed first. First, kill Ma Dai and Pang Dai. Then, wait for Han Sui to come out of Tong Gate and then approach, but do not attack him. The defection sequence/negotiations will begin in a few moments. Note: Han Sui will only defect if Ma Chao is behind Tong Gate. After Han Sui defects, defeat all other generals and wait for Ma Chao to retreat behind Tong Gate. After a few minutes, a supply unit will appear. Kill the supply captain to get the Golden Harness.
kellan frank.

Hint: Guan Yu's special item:
Play the Guan Yu's Escape level as Guan Yu's forces under hard difficulty setting. Kill Zhang He, Zhen Ji, and Xu Huang. A supply unit will appear. Ride (or run) as fast as you can to where Xu Zhu is located. On the way you should meet a supply unit. Kill the supply captain and he will drop Guan Yu's Blue Moon Dragon. The supply unit will leave in a short time, so move quickly.
andyb911, IceDrizzle, and Sumo138.

Hint: Huang Gai's special item:
Note: You do not have to wait for the fire attack to unlock Huang Gai's fourth weapon. Just kill Zhang Liao and it will appear in a box near the place of prayer.
BSlipknot4.

Hint: Huang Zhong's special item:
Play as Huang Zhong (Shu Forces) at the Mt. Ding Jun level under the hard difficulty setting. Defeat Xiahou Shang and the special item message will appear. The weapon is in a box to the west of Cao Cao's original position.
Jackie Bottoms and Sumo138.

Hint: Hex Mark Saddle special item:
Play the Assault On Cheng Du level. Kill every officer except for Liu Zhang. A special item report will occur to the northwest of the map. Get the item and equip it. The Hex Mark is Liu Bei's horse.
Alex Martin, Computrwiz89 and j.brozak.

Hint: Imperial Saddle special item:
At the Battle Of Yi Ling level as Shu forces, stop Lu Xun's fire attack and kill Lu Xun. Then, you must kill Gan Ning, Lu Meng (may be optional), and Sun Shang Xiang. Start with Sun Shang Xiang because she is a long way from where you need to be; Gan Ning is closer. Then, a Supply Unit will appear near the northern-most Wu gate (near Sun Quan). Kill the Supply Captain to get the Imperial Saddle. This item allows the riding of any horse. Note: If you do not get there quickly, the Supply Captain either disappears or one of your allies will kill him.
Aubrey.

To help get the Imperial Saddle, kill Zhu Ran to stop the fire attack, then go after Lu Xun. More times than not if you go after Lu Xun, the attack will happen if your character is not strong enough.
Alex.

Hint: Jiang Wei's special item:
Play at Jie Ting, under the hard difficulty setting and kill Cao Zhen and Zhen Ji. A supply team should show up near the gate to the northeast of Sima Yi.
Kevin Loop.

Hint: Lu Bu's special item:
Play the Battle AT Hu Lao Gate level under the hard difficulty setting. Defeat Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Lui Bei, and Gong Dzan. A supply team will appear near the mid-north gate. Quickly kill the Supply Captain and he will have Lu Bu's fourth weapon, the Sky Scorcher. It has Lightning property and has an electrically charged fouth and fifth hit when you hit them to the ground, and a sixth hit.
Millionsb and simon hornick.

Play the Battle At Hu Lao Gate level as Dong Zhou's forces under the hard difficulty setting. Go up towards the east gate and kill Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, then kill Lui Bei. If you kill Lui Bei first, this will not work. After they are defeated, go straight up towards the Gate Captain, go left, and the Supply Captain will be there. Kill him to get his fourth weapon.
Andy Lehoe.

Hint: Lu Xun's special item:
Play the Battle of Yi Ling as the Wu force under the hard difficulty setting. Protect Zhu Ran from the attacking enemies in the path near the Stone Warrior Maze, then wait for the fire attack and kill Zhuge Liang. It helps to have two players, as Lu Xun is all the way in one corner of the map. It will appear in the maze trap. Guide yourself around by pressing Start. The Falcon should be located in the northeast area of the stone warrior formation. It has Speed +22, Musuo Max +73, Defense +43, Reach +29 and an instant death attack.

Yousef Hamdi.

Hint: Lu Meng's special item:
Play the Battle At Fan Castle under the hard difficulty setting. Wait until the water rises then defeat Guan Ping. A special message item will appear. Lu Meng's fourth weapon will be in a box near Sima Yi (not on the castle but on the ground).
nick regal.

Hint: Lu Xun's special item:
Play as Lu Xun at the Yi Ling level under the hard difficulty setting . Kill Wei Yan as soon as possible to make his army retreat. When the intermission sequence of you saying that Zhuge Liang is not here plays, your officer will begin to make his fire attack. Look at message history for the exact location. Make sure that he sets the camp alight by killing any resistance, then kill off everything in the Stone Maze Trap, kill Zhuge Liang, and a special item can be found to the northeast of the Stone Maze Trap. Get it and complete the level. This weapon adds Speed +22, Musou Gage +75, Defense +43, and Radius +29.

Hint: Ma Chao's special item:
Play as Ma Chao under the hard difficulty setting in the Tong Gate level. Ma Chao is the main general. They must kill General Han Sui, but he is on your side. First, you must kill Cao Ren and Cao Hong. Then, wait for Xu Huang to bring his army. Watch Cao Cao and make sure he moves away from Xaihou Yuan. Then, kill Xiahou Yuan. Wait for Cao Cao to move further up the field. Walk across the bridge and go towards Cao Cao. Do not attack his men or him. He should walk across the bridge to the field. Cao Cao will then talk to Han Sui. Wait about five minutes and do anything except attack Cao Cao. Han Sui should defect after awhile. Make sure you have Hex Mark or Red Hare -- when you kill Han Sui you must run to the gate on the top right corner of the screen. A supply unit will appear and try to retreat to there. Kill the supply unit and you will get Ma Chao's fourth weapon, which gives Jump +21, Mounted Attack +60, Mounted Defense +60, and Reach+21.
Chris Carpenter and DiabloManiac5.

At the battle of He Fei, defeat Gan Ning to get the Power Scroll. This item makes the deadlock a tie in which yours and your enemy's weapons are push upwards.
Bucky Spudwater and Calvin Feil.

Hint: Red Hare special item:
On Hu Loa Gate, once you defeat Lu Bu a supply unit will appear (usually to the north). Defeat the supply captain and you will get a secret item. Equip the item to use it on any level.
ElPikaloco.

Note: It is recommended that you have Lu Bu unlocked for this strategy. Select two player mode and The Battle of Hu Lao Gate level. Have Lu Bu as player one if he is your weaker character, or as player two if he is your stronger character. Move player one through the small canyon that leads up to behind the Fan Shui Gate. Fight your way through it until you reach the corner of the small canyon (i.e. where it turns to go further in). Stop at the corner (or fight your way only a slightly further in so you can be safe, but always move back to that corner), Then, use player two to defeat Lu Bu. A supply unit should eventually appear directly next to player one in that small canyon. Run forwards, deeper into the canyon, until you find the Supply Unit and its Supply Captain. Kill the Supply Captain then pick up the item he drops. Next, move player one into an extremely safe location then proceed to defeat Dong Zhuo eventually with your stronger, more powerful character in the player two slot. Make sure you are playing on the easy difficulty setting, and that your weaker character is in the player one slot. The game's difficulty is based on the strength of player one's character.
DonnyD and Easy_Company {Cpt._Winters}.

On the Yellow Turban Rebellion, play on the Yellow Turbans side first. Go to the Han gate, at the very northeast part of the map. When there, defeat all opposing privates and Gate Captains yourself. When done, go north to the very northeast part of the map and stop in the corner. There should be either a box or a pot to smash open for an item. Note: This only works if you destroy all the privates and captains next to the gate. This special item is a Red Hare horse to use in all of the levels. You always will start out on a Red Hare. This special horse can run over anyone in the game, even high ranking generals.
mahoney.

Play as the allied forces under the normal difficulty setting. Kill Lu Bu as quickly as possible. A supply unit should appear around the mid north of the map. If you do not get there in time, it will disappear, or your allies will have killed it
Michael Minervini.

When playing the Hu Loa Gate scenario with any character, never face Lu Bu alone on single player mode. Play with two players. By doing this, both players can defeat him, making the level easier. Also, the Red Hare Saddle will appear, which is a very powerful horse to obtain.
dgamer5555.

Hint: Sima Yi's special item:
Play The Battle Of Wu Zhang Plain level under the hard difficulty setting. Start off by killing Zhang Fei then travel south to where Wei Yan is located. Destroy him and everyone around that area. This is usually where you find the wooden ox, but they will not appear there. Instead, move around that area and wait for reinforcements. A supply team will appear. Kill them and a special item will appear very close by. Open the box to get Sima Yi's fourth weapon, the Dark Feather. It adds +28 Attack +50 Bow Attack, +55 Mounted Attack, +29 Reach, +26 Musou Charge with the electric attack.
marc blackwin.

Hint: Sky Scorcher special item:

Play as Sun Ce under the hard difficulty setting in the Attack In Wu Territory level. Sun Ce is the main general. Go through the level normally until you get to the split, where your army separates. Go left where Taishi Ci is located. Do not fight him. Kill the main general to the left first, then the one to the right. A special item, Sun Ce's fourth weapon, Overlord, should appear next to Taishi Ci. It gives Speed +21, Jump +20, Musou Max +80, and HP +72.
Chris Carpenter, DiabloManiac5, and Sumo138.

Go to the central area and fight with Liu Bei (near Xiahou Yuan). You may get an intermission sequence of Zhao Yun defending Liu Bei. Continue west and defeat Zhang He. Cut back to the east bridge (near to where you started) to defeat Zhang Liao and Xiahou Dun. If you actually fight enemy troops on the bridge, you may get another intermission sequence of Zhao Yun standing off against the enemy. After you defeat Zhang Liao, the supply unit with Zhao Yun's fourth weapon will appear. The supply unit appears in the west, near the gate where Zhang He originally was located. By the time you reach the unit, it may have traveled slightly northeast on the far north path. Zhao Yun's fourth weapon is the Fierce Dragon. It adds Basic +43, Attack +25, Defense +52, HP +74, and Musou Gauge +80.

Fierce Dragon has a fire property. When you use it to do the 5-hit combo to throw an enemy into the air, he or she burns until they come back to its feet. As long as you continue to hit it with 5-hit combo and keep it in the air, it continue to drain out hit points. This is especially useful when killing Boss generals.

Hint: Battle Of Chi Bi: 8000 kills:
This trick requires a character with great stats and his or her fourth weapon (Lu Bu recommended). On the easy difficulty setting, choose the Battle Of Chi Bi. Choose Liu Bei forces. Kill everyone except for Cao Cao. When you see the message "Wei reinforcements have arrived", go to the two enemy gates at the left of the map. Kill the officer, but do not kill the Gate Captains. If done correctly, all your forces will be busy with Cao Cao and will not bother the Gate Captains. Hack and slash to your heart's content. The earlier you get everyone killed, the more kills you can get. A good player may be able to get 9500 kills.
chrper905.

Hint: Battle Of Fan Castle: More kills:
This trick requires a very good character (preferably Lu Bu), or someone with their fourth weapon. Go past all the enemies. Do not stop until you get to the walls of the actual Fan Castle. Go up the stairs, but do not fight Sima Yi. The people that followed you will be there. Also, there is a gate on the wall. People will keep coming until you either want to stop or you die. This is a good way to get a person that is good, but does not have many points.
penguinman09.

Hint: Battle Of He Fei: Quick Musou and health increase:
Play under any difficulty setting as Wei forces. In the northwest corner of the map, there is a pot containing a Health Max +10. In the northeast corner is a pot containing a Musou Max +10. Get the items and complete the level. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Justin Coonce.

Hint: Battle Of He Fei: Get Zhang Liao to ambush Wu leader:
Go to the central area with any Wei character (except Zhang Liao) and fight near Zhang Liao until an intermission sequence featuring your character and Zhag Liao running up behind saying "I'm off to the next battle, I'm leaving the rest to you" starts. Go away from him, and he will retreat and ambush the Wu leader. Note: This must be done before he moves past the central square. Also, this will cause Gan Ning to appear and ambush the Wei leader.
LoOnEyGuY4354.

Hint: Battle Of He Fei: Fire attack:
As Lu Xun on the Wei side, go to the southern square past Lu Xun and Lu Meng into the square. You should see an intermission sequence with your character and some soldiers in the square.

Knightowl115.

Hint: Battle Of Hu Lao Gate: Easy level up:
Play the battle at Hu Lao Gate as anyone desired. Go through the level as usual. After you defeat all the generals except for Dong Zhou, go to the south of the map where the gate is located. Avoid the gate captain and have your bodyguards take care of him . Then, go to the gate and run or stand in front of it. Enemies will start pouring out. Note: This is a good strategy to get Lu Bu. It is possible to get 1,000 kills before you get into Hu Lao Gate, and result in about 11,000 to 15,000 points. This is a great way to increase your stats quickly.
Madskillz6000.

Hint: Battle Of Jie Ting: Easy level up:
Start a two player game in free mode under the normal difficulty setting as the Shu side. With the already strong player, kill the officers and let the weaker player pick up the items. There is also a Musou +10 in the path in the middle and a Life +10 at the top left corner of the summit. There are three weapon crates dropped by officers (Huang Quan, Cao Hong and Sun Li). You will almost certainly get a third weapon from one of them.

GA Ning.

Hint: Battle Of Yi Ling: Easy level up:
Play the level with the character you want to level up. Kill the officers Gan Ning and Lu Meng with a 20+ hit combo or one Musou attack. This should give you Attack+16 and +8 from each general. Next, kill Sun Shang Xiang, Lu Xun, and Cheng Pu. Kill all of them with a 20+ hit combo. This should give you a total of defense+20. Next, kill all Gate Captains with a 20+ hit combo or one Musou attack. You can now get Defense+2 from each Gate Captain. You can also get the Life+10 and the Musou+10 inside of the maze.

If you start near Ma Chao and Gan Ning (Gan Ning being the enemy), kill Gan Ning, then Lu Meng, Lu Xun, Cheng Pu, and Sun Sianux Su. Travel south into the Stone Warrior Formation maze. When you enter, take a left, then the first right. There should be a Musou +10 in the lone pot. Continue along the bottom of the maze until you reach to a fenced off Stone Warrior. Take a left. There should be three pots along the right. One of them has a Life +10. Continue up until you reach the exit. Defeat Sun Quan, then repeat this as needed. Note: Your character must have his or her second or third weapon; or have very good stats.
MATKOZ9.

Hint: Battle Of Yi Ling: Easy kills:
Use the following trick to get over 4000 kills at the Battle Of Yi Ling. Using your best character is recommended. Select the Wu side under any difficulty setting and play through as usual. When you get to the area where Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang are located, kill Zhuge Liang then go to the area behind Liu Bei. The Gate Captain will keep sending troops at you. Keep swinging and slashing. This is also a good way to get a lot of points. If you get there fast enough, you can probably get over 4000 kills.

Hint: Battle At Yi Ling: Easy attack level up:
Play the level under any difficult setting. Acquire a second weapon for your character. Then, kill Gan Ning, Lu Meng and Cheng Pu with a 20+ hit combo or kill them with one Musou attack only.

Hint: Nanman Campaign: Easy level up:
Kill all the officers including Meng Huo every time he appears. This should get you not only very high stats (about Attack+20 and Defense+20 including the Gate Captains), but also your third weapon. Repeat this level a few times until you get the third weapon or you are you satisfied.
DinoJrChris.

Hint: Pong Tong Gate: Hidden items:
You can get an easy Life +10 at the top left by your gate. To the top right of their gate is a Musou +10. Chose the allied team (not Cao Cao's) to do it in less than seven minutes.
Calvin Feil.

Hint: Surprise Attack On Liu Biao: Saving Sun Jian:
In order to save Sun Jian from being crushed, you must kill Kuai Liang before Sun Jian arrives at the area that he is normally killed in. Try going directly to Kwai Liang without fighting any Gate Guards or Lu Gong. This will stall Sun Jian. Another way to save him is to play as his character.
ras102.

Hint: Yellow Turban Rebellion: Hidden items:
There is a Musuo +10 near the Gate for the Yellow Turban to the far left. Head down close to the outside land and you will find it there. The Life +10 is found just outside the river opening to the castle on the north side. There is also another Musou +10 at the second protrusion from the south on the West Castle Wall. There is also another Life +10 at the second protrusion from the north of the East Castle Wall.
Blacks42.

Note: This probably can only be done with Zhang He. Play the level and equip Zhang He's fourth weapon and a good pair of Wing Boots. Zhang He can jump onto the platforms connected on the castle, which stick out to get Life +20 and Musou +20. Note: This depends on your Wing Boots, which may need a +10 or +11 Jump.
Son Gohan.

You can get the Life +10 and Musou +10 on the protrusion by going to the inside corners of the castle and going up the stairs. Jump off the side and land on the platform/protrusion from the wall. Note: Get a horse and leave it near the protrusion so that you know where it is; when you go up on top of the castle walls it is very difficult to see the protrusion.
san saelee.

Hint: Yellow Turban Rebellion: Easy level up:
Play the level as the Han forces under free mode and the hard difficulty setting with a character who you want to make stronger. From where ever you start, go straight to the allied Gate in the bottom left corner and defeat the general who is attacking it. Then, go to the river where there is a scene of the it being frozen, Immediately run back to the gate earlier, without killing any more generals. Wait until Liu Bei, Sun Jian, and Cao Cao die, leaving the castle under siege. Wait until He Jin is under attack and help him. All that remains is to kill anyone who gets in your way. The Gate closest to Zhang Jiao is the only one that will send units your way. Getting a horse to go and close all the Gates is helpful. In doing this, you should be able to kill over 1000 to 2000 enemies, raising you five or six levels.
Emperor_Zhang_Liao.

Get the Life+10s on the east wall platform, and at the top opening of the castle inside the jar atop the ridge to your immediate right. Then, get the Musou+10 on the second platform on the west wall. Repeat this level many times using this strategy. Remember to kill every general this level.

Calvin Feil.

Hint: Item upgrades:
To get better upgrades, such as Tortoise Amulet +60, play the game under the hard difficulty setting in these stages and kill these characters for only items in that stage. Do not bother doing this on any level below Attack On Liu Biao.

Leisa0215.

Play the Assault On Wu Territory level under the hard difficulty setting. Have someone help you defeat the stage. While the other person is defeating the officers, go and take all of the weapon boxes that appear. Some weapon boxes are in boxes. After completing the level, you should have the second and third weapons.
NoLimitsMaster.

Play as Cao Cao and successfully complete the game. His first and second weapons are the same as Liu Bei's, Sun Quan's, and Sun Jian's first and second weapons. When you start a new Musou with these characters, you will automatically get their second weapon.

Wizard of Da Hood.

Play the Nanman Campaign under any difficulty setting. Meng Huo, Meng You, and Dailali Dongzou will all give you weapon boxes. They usually are a mix of second and third weapons.
RowenHashiba.

Start a two player free mode game under the hard difficulty setting at the Battle Of You Ting level. Play as Sun Jian's forces. This stage is the perfect place to find second or third weapons. Player one should be a fresh character you want the weapon for, while player two should be a maxed out character with the fourth weapon. When you start the level, let player two take care of the Gate Captains, archers, and soldiers. Then, walk player one to the crates at the start of the beach and smash them all. One of them contains a weapon and another has an item. Move player two up the path to Liu Biao's castle. On the way, look for a crate. Kill the soldiers there with player two, then move player one to the crate and smash it. Pick up the contents, which almost always is a second or third weapon. Finish the stage with player two.
SetoKaiba1335.

His sub-general Yan Yu will drop the third weapon. The fourth weapon is in a crate in the middle-left part of section where you fight Liu Yong.
Theunseen16.

Hint: Easy second weapons:
Play a two player game with one character who has very good stats and another character who you want the weapon for. Play at the Yellow Turban Rebellion under the hard difficulty setting and have each character equipped with a Red Hare Saddle. At the very beginning, put the character you want the weapon for near Sun Jian but not in a place where he could get hurt. Next, have your strong character fight Sun Jian. When he dies, he will drop a weapon. Let your strong character just stand there. He should have good enough defense that barely any health is taken away. Have the other character quickly run in, grab the weapon, and run out again. Then, go in the castle with the strong character and kill He Jin to end the level. You will almost always get the character's second weapon and sometimes even their third weapon. Note: You may have problems doing this with Zhang He.
Dana.

Hint: Easy third weapons:
Go to the Surprise Attack On Lui Biao level with an already enhanced Lu Bu and the character you want. There are five weapon boxes throughout the level. Get those with the other character, not Lu Bu after killing every person on the level with Lu Bu, except for the main person. Then, kill the last person. There is also a Musou +10 and an Life +10 in the level. For a third weapon, play under the hard difficulty setting. If you do not get their second or third weapon, play on the other side.
JANETF.

Max out a character (with or without a fourth weapon). Put a base strength character in the player one slot. The game adjusts its difficulty according to the first player's strength. Then, put your maxed character in slot two under the normal difficulty setting. Play the Battle At Tong Gate. At the start of the battle, put your first player character in a safe spot nearby then kill Tong Gate Generals Ma Dai, Pang De, and Han Sui. By now Ma Chow will be occupied with Cao Cao -- kill Cheng Yin and he will drop a weapon box. Keep the box on the second player's screen and have player one take the box. Have player two stand there and let his bodyguards take care of any units. Then, take player one to the northern-most point of Cao Cao's side of Tong Gate. Once there you will find a box with a weapon inside. Take the weapon, then hide player one and kill Ma Chow with player two.
Gregory Griffith.

Play the Battle of Mt. Ding Jun level on Shu forces. Turn around and take the path Zhand Fei is taking. Kill Xiahou De to get the weapons box. Go to where Xiahou Yuan is located and go right, then break open the box and pick up the weapons box. Next, find and kill Cao Hond and pick up the weapons box for the last one in the stage. There is also a Life +10 to the right of Cao Cao, to the left of you. You should play the level under the normal or hard difficulty setting for a better chance at getting the third weapon. The weapon will give you better stats. For example, playing on easy results with Life +9, playing on hard results in Life +31.

Play the Battle At Tong Gate level in two player mode under the hard difficulty setting. Have one of the players be powered up and the other as the character that will get the third weapon. Leave the first player where they start (unless there are enemies nearby, then move them away). Have the second player go to the right. Hopefully they will start near Cao Cao. If not, then use someone that does to find the box. Follow the hill to the left and when it makes a sharp turn keep going forward until you find the coast. Then, follow it to the left until you find a box that always has a weapon in it. Get it, then move him to safety. Use player one to finish the level. This may need to be repeated if the found weapon is the player's second weapon.
Dragonspell005.

Play the Siege Of He Fei Castle level. This stage is quite long; save often in case you run out of time. First, defeat all the enemies at the bottom of the map, but do not proceed upwards -- there will be a surprise attack coming from the southeast. Defeat all of them, then go to the northeast part of the map. You will know if you are in the correct location if a message stating something about arrows appears. Quickly run across. Arrows will shoot at you from the sides. Continue on to the Wind Corridor Trap. Instead of going around it, got into it, avoiding the columns. The weapon box inside contains your third weapon. Defeat Sima Yi to finish the level.
Pikoise657.

Play the Fan Castle level under the normal difficulty setting with a Warrior Body Guard (so that you will not get a level 3 body guard weapon instead). Find all the crates in the level. There should be two weapon crates and Gan Ning should drop one. Make sure that you build up your character slightly or equip an Tiger Amulet, Tortoise Amulet, a Buckler (so that your guard can not be broken) and a Speed Scroll. Also have the character's second weapon (or first if you are very skilled). You will get the character's second and third weapons. It is possible to do this level without leveling up at all.
jh27.

Play the Battle Of Tong Gate level as the Wei. At the start of the battle go to the Tong Gate, then go all the way to the right of it. Next to the river is a weapon. Complete the level and it is usually the third weapon. If it does not work on the first try for a character, try it a second time with them.

Hint: Easy fourth weapons:
Play under the hard difficulty setting with two players (one who already has a fourth weapon and the other that needs a fourth weapon). Complete what is necessary with the good character, then use the other character to pick up the fourth weapon. For example, to get Taishi Ci's special weapon, play the Assault On Wu Territory level with Lu Bu and his fourth weapon and Taishi Ci. Get Taishi Ci to safety. Kill every one except Sun Ce. Then, use Taishi Ci to get his fourth weapon.
Mikellcookie.

Note: You do not necessarily have to pick up the item with the weaker character. Anybody can pick up the fourth item for the weaker character. It will automatically be given to the character without the fourth weapon.
chrissrepair.

For precious (special) items, put the character whose weapon you are after in the first slot (base strength) and put a maxed out character in slot two. With player two, perform the actions required to make the weapon appear then just have player one collect it. For Supply Troop weapons, have a base strength player in slot one and the character whose weapon you are after in slot two. Do what is needed to get the weapon under the hard difficulty setting.
Gregory Griffith.

Get a character's second weapon , choose the Nanman campaign, then kill everyone (including Meng Hou), except Meng Hou for the last time. At the end, you should have three weaponsm with one being the special weapon. This can be done with Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Zhou yu, and Xiahou Dun. Note: Always use the second weapon always as it does more damage.
ChiokeB.

Fourth weapons can be picked up by anyone, as the weapons are usually level specific. As long as you have the corresponding character as player one, the weapon will appear after completing the tasks with any character, unless stated "...must pass under <gate name> and it will appear." Just put the stronger character out of harm's way, then have the other character (player one) go through the gate. When the message appears, either retreat back to safety and have the stronger player (player two) pick it up and finish, or pick it up as player one and retreat to safety.
Alex.

Hint: Stay powered-up:
When you are fighting with Xu Zhu during the time when your health is red (True Musou), press Circle to attack the enemy. When you fall down, you are still powering up. Wait until you are fully charged and keep on going through this process.
DBZTrunx10.

Hint: Extra Musou attack:
When you are attacking someone and are surrounded, attack them to your maximum. When you would usually stop attacking immediately press Circle to get the five or so blows plus the Musou.
Agent Doggie.

This trick can be done with Pang Tong when there are at least a few enemies close to you. Do Pang Tong's six-hit combo into a mass enemy group. Immediately after Pang Tong does his sixth hit, press Circle for the Musuo attack. When you normally activate his Musuo attack with the Musuo is down to 25% empty, it gives you less hits. However, since the sixth hit strikes after the beginning of the Musuo attack, the bar is refilled, adding more special attack time. This is best done when Pang Tong is maxed out with Attack and Musuo.
kengi ikazuchi.

Start by choosing two people to play Free or Musou mode. When you build up your Musou attack bar, stand next to your partner. They must also have a full Musou bar. Have both players press Circle simultaneously to get a super Musou attack that can wipe out everyone without touching them.
Abercrombie0138.

If your character has a long Musou you can do a longer Musou attack. Hold Circle while your Musou attack is going. If done correctly and your Musou is long enough, it will do more hits to the Musou. For better results equip a Dragon Amulet and try to pick up Musou +10 items when you find them.
cmsheets.

Hint: Super Musou attack:
Two players are required for this trick. Get the two players to full Musou, then go next to each other. Their hands should be dark blue. Have both players press Circle to do an electrical Musou that will stun the enemy and send him flying.
Mtadog246.

Hint: Longer Musou attacks:
Use the following trick to make your combos larger with Musou. Instead of just pressing Circle or tapping it repeatedly, hold it until your Musou gauge is empty. If you have the Way Of The Musou item, when it ends it will finish the combo. This works well with Guan Yu.
Son Gohan.

Hint: Shorter Musou:
A shorter Mosou Max stat may be better, since it requires less time to fill up and Musou more readily available. Avoid taking the +10 Musou boxes and do not use +xx Musou Max items.
Steel Deng.

Hint: Easy Musou mode:
To complete beat Musou mode easily, start a game in two player Musou mode. Choose the character you want to be. Then, with the second controller choose any character that is already leveled up and is good. Play through Musou mode with the good character and you should win easily. Make sure you keep the other character out of danger.
BaseballNumber6.

Start a two player Musou mode game. When you each find each other and are fully charged with Musou, press Circle. The screen will stop and rotate. Both warriors will do their specials and it usually kills every enemy.
Chris Davenport.

Hint: Super arrow attack:
When you have lots of arrows with a full musou bar, find a large enemy group and pull out your bow. Hold Circle until your Musou bar is empty. There longer your Musou bar, the more arrows you will shoot. This is extremely useful if you have about 50 arrows and get a Musou Max for 10 seconds (Emperors Seal). You can unload arrows for ten seconds plus however long your Musou is.

Hint: Better kill bonuses:
Kill Gate captains with Musou attack (full combos) to get Defense Up +2 instead of +1. You can do this either in Free or Musou mode. One way to fill up you defense meter quickly is to play the Battle Of Hu Lao Gate level as the allied forces. There are seven Gate captains and three officers who have the Defense Up item. Kill them all with Musou attack to get +20 total. You can also use this trick to Attack Up. Everything +1 killed by Musou attack will be +2 (defense or attack).
Dennis Rodman.

Do a 20 or more hit combo to kill a general to get double the amount of the normal + Defense or + Attack bonus. For example, killing Gan Ning at Yi Ling with a big combo will give you +8 Attack instead of +4 Attack. Note: You must kill the general with the combo.
Kris Sarreal.

Get at least an 8-hit combo to get Attack/Defense +2 instead of +1.
Chadsta4.

Hint: More kills:
Go to a gate but do not kill the Gate Captain. Kill his guards and the Gate Captain will call for more men. The Gate Captain will move back. Go to the gate until the small sign appears and kill all the men that appear. You can lower the number of people for that general. You can do this anywhere, with anyone. It is also good training for you and your bodyguard.
Ringo.

Hint: Unlimited combo:
You need at least a five hit weapon for this trick. Attack four times and press Triangle. Repeat this for an unlimited combo.
Brian.

Hint: Better combos at sixth attack:
Note: This trick requires third or fourth weapons and does not work for all characters (works for Lu Bu). Do the usual five normal attacks and when you do the Triangle combo, repeatedly tap it quickly. Note: Some of them have it for the attack where you do four attacks and Triangle (twice so you jump up with them to hit them down). Some characters do not have this type of attack.
Son Gohan.

Hint: Double charge intermission sequence and morale boost:
Select free mode and the Battle Of Mt. Ding Jun on the Shu forces. Select any character. As you start, help Huang Zhong get close to the top of the steep part of the mountain but do not let him go through the gate yet. Then, go down the mountain to the first row of spears and wait until Xiahou Shang comes to attack you. Defeat him and continue fighting in that same area. While you are fighting, track Huang Zhong's movements by pausing the game to check where he is via the unit information. When you notice that he is getting close to the gate, resume the game and look at the doorway. Note: You can also tell if he is close by the intermission sequence of him shooting an arrow over the mountain and killing one of Xiahou Yuan's bodyguards. When you see Huang Zhong fighting in the doorway, get a horse from nearby. If you have the Red Hare or Hex Mark saddle equipped, you could use those horses as well. After mounting a horse, go back and fight alongside Huang Zhong, then follow him down the mountain. If done correctly, you will be shown in the intermission sequence charging down the mountain just behind Huang Zhong to engage with Xiahou Yuan. After the intermission sequence, there should be a morale Boost for all of the Shu forces. Note: This was done under the easy difficulty setting.
Wes.

Hint: Avoid falling:
When you get hit back or knocked off your horse, press Square while in the air.
Johnjc123456789.

When someone does a combo on you, their last hit will usually throw you. While you are being thrown through the air, tap L1 a few times to flip back on your feet.
Pimpcey211.

Hint: Knocking riders off elephants:
Stand in front of the elephant that is going to ram you. When it hits you, press L1 a few times to bounce up. While still in the air from your bounce, press Square to execute your jump attack. Note: Do not try this with weak characters with weak defense.
LumpyCustard693.

Hint: Opening gates:
When fighting on a level with wooden gates, position your character against to and facing a gate. Try to fire an arrow through it, at the enemy soldiers on the other side. When you hit one, the gate will open up.
Brandon and Josh Nash.

Hint: Better horse tactics:
Play under the hard difficulty and get a good Horned Helmet (increases Mounted Attack). Some characters such as Liu Bei and Ma Chao fourth weapons give mounted attack. It is good if you also have a long Musou. When you do your Musou on a horse, hold Circle until your Musou is empty. Your character will do many strong blows until their Musou runs out. For best results, have your characters five items be the Red Hare Saddle (or Hex Mark), Horned Helmet, Cavalry Armor, Dragon Amulet, and Way Of The Musou.

Hint: Avoid getting lost:
If you are in a situation where you have no map during the game, pause game play and use the large map at the equipment screen to navigate.
Shepja7.

Hint: Make a face:
In two player free mode, have player one hold R2 or the bow and player two get in a cinematic scene (such as getting in a battle with an opponent such as Yang Fe or Liu Bie). After the scene ends, you should see player one's face, with that player making a face.
Haro Mashudu.

Hint: Xu Zhu the elephant in opening:
Enable the "Opening Edit option" code. At the scene where the player you select would be on an elephant hitting people, choose Xu Zhu. Play it to see Cao Cao on a elephant, but you will first see Xu Zhu taking the place of the elephant.
Son Gohan.

Hint: No death in hero's end in opening:
In the hero's end part of "Opening Edit", put in one of the following to see him/her order troops to battle while mounted: Lu Bu, Dong Zhuo, Meng Huo, Zhu Rong, Diao Chan, Zhang Jiao, Fu Xi, and Nu Wa. About all the Wu characters have the scene with the boulder falling on someone; try it with Huang Gai.
Son Gohan.

Hint: Special death scenes:
Some warriors in certain battles have special death scenes. These correspond to the battles in which these warriors died in real life. Some examples include:
Shepja7.

Xiahou Yuan, Mt Ding Jun
Zhuge Liang, Wu Zhang Plains
Dian Wei, Wan Castle
Guan Yu, Fan Castle

Hint: Special death sequences:

In the Surprise Attack On Liu Biao, when Sun Jian is killed in Liu Biao's trap, you will see your character behind Sun Ce, crying over his farther crushed under a rock.
Shepja7.
In the battle of He Fei (not He Fei castle), if Taishi C is killed, you will see him being ambushed by Zhang Liao, and killed. Note: This will only happen if Taishi C falls into Zhang Liao's trap. This happens if Wu forces head too far into Wei's part of the middle section.
Shepja7.

Hint: Ending sequences:

Successfully complete the game with Dian Wei and Xu Zhu and they will fight for an onion during the ending sequence.

Danskan.

Hint: Funny ending sequence:
Play through Musou mode in two player mode, with any character as player one and the your best character as player two. Have player two win each level and player one kill nobody. At the end, it will say "0" for the kill number each time. For example, do this with Da Qiao and Guan Yu (player two) and the game will say "In the Yellow Turban Rebellion, Da Qiao won her affection after defeating 0 soldiers" and sometimes it will say 0 soldiers forcing a retreat.
Son Gohan.

Hint: Xu Zhu combos:
Doing a jump attack on any person will make your combo rack very fast. You can also jump attack someone immediately after doing this once to continue your combos. This is very useful for getting 20 or better combo hits on Generals for twice the normal item given.
Knowyourown.

Hint: Zhou Yu singing and dancing:
Play through Musou mode under any difficulty setting as Da Qiao or Xiao Qiao to have Zhou Yu as the singer/dancer in the ending sequence. He still has the woman's voice, and does the same exact dance.

Glitch: Explore level:
Play as Sun Quan on the Mt. Ding Jun level. Help Xiahou Yuan up the main path. A Shu unit will appear near Cao Cao. Go to help him. Get on the bridge where Xiahou Yuan starts out and get hit off your horse. You will flip back over in the air. If Zhou Yun hits you off the bridge, you can walk in the level where you usually cannot travel (through the river, up the mountains, etc.). If you walk back on the path, you will not be able to leave it again.
LeftBehind401.

Hint: Funny opening edit:
Enable the "Opening Edit option" code. You will reach a part that says "Enchantress." Put in someone like Zhang Liao, Dian Wei, or even Cao Cao. Note: You can only put in characters that you have used to win the game with.

Glitch: Shoot through gates:
Go to a level with gates. Before it opens, aim your bow at the gate then shoot. You will hit someone.
Mitsys2000.

Glitch: Misleading message:
In the Battle of Yi Ling under normal mode when playing Lu Xun, if the requirements for getting his fourth weapon are filled, a notice will appear that a special item has appeared in the Stone Warrior Formation, where his fourth weapon would appear. Obviously, since it is in normal mode, there is not anything there and can be frustrating to waste time checking for a non-existent box.
