Hint: Quick stand from falling:
Press L immediately to stand quickly from falling.
Hint: Body Guard Manual:
In the new officer campaign in the Siege Of Osaka on
Yukimura's side, successfully complete all of the objectives until
Yukimura charges into the enemy camp. Once he charges, follow
him and there will be an ambush inside the enemy's castle. After
you successfully repel the ambush, a special item will appear
on one of the right side gate captains. He moves slowly to the
east -- you should be able to catch him on foot.
Hint: Kankestuba Saddle:
In Sanada Yukimura's summer campaign at Osaka, follow
all the missions up to and including and preventing Date Masamune
from entering the castle. A supply team will appear from the gate
in the west of the center and move towards the gate east of the
center. There appears to be a time limit for getting this item
(possibly about fifteen minutes).
Hint: Matsukaze Saddle:
In Takeda Shingen's stage, Attack On Azuchi Castle,
defeat Akechi Mitsuhide then enter the castle from the east side.
Defeat Maeda Keiju within one minute of when he appears. As soon
as you do so, the supply team will appear next to Maeda Katsuie's
position and move towards the gate next to Niwa Nagahide's position.
Go there and cut them off. They will disappear rather quickly
-- to run there, ignoring all other enemies.
Hint: War Ration:
To get War Ration easier, first use a male or a female
model. Name him or her Kunoichi (most effective if you used a
female model). You should start with a Jump of 115 to 118. Then,
play burst, where you must solve the maze using only sword (because
sword increases jumps). Try to complete the stage without getting
hit, with at least 1:00 to 1:12 remaining. You then should have
a rating of "Great" or "Good", and Jump should
increase about 3 to 4. Keep doing this until you get 130 Jumps
and Goemon might appear. Watch out for the gun in expert; it may
kill you in three shots.
Hint: Easy third or fourth weapons:
An easy way to receive a decent third weapon or your
fourth weapon for anyone is to play through Hanzo's story. Then,
in free mode, play the Ueda Infiltration under the hard or chaos
difficulty settings. You will receive some good items and weapons.
Note: Do not try this unless your character is strong or you already
possess a decent weapon and items -- Kuniochi is difficult.
Another easy way to get a good fourth weapon is to have a second
player with you in free mode. Player two should be a rank 1 character,
because the game sets the difficulty somewhere between the levels
of the first and second player. This makes killing generals a
To get high level 4 weapons (for example, 40+ Attack, Life, Defense,
etc.), play through story mode with Hattori Hanzou and Goemon.
Go to "Free Play", then Goemon. Select "Goemon's
Tale", and play Osaka Intrusion. Find all treasures on the
first floor. The "Valuable Item Found" message will
appear. Return to the start of the level and pick up the item.
It is a Guiding Doll. Note: There are more treasures than the
amount required; find them all. Finish the mission, and you will
get the Doll. Next, switch the difficulty to Hell (chaos), go
to "Free Play", and choose the character for which you
want a good level 4 weapon. Select "Hattori Hanzou's Tale",
then Ueda Infiltration. All you need is the Guiding Doll equipped,
along with any other accessories, and a level 3+ weapon. Note:
Kunoichi is rather difficult; you may want a high level character.
Gather all information on all levels of the castle (along with
all treasures that appear on your map, thanks to the Guiding Doll),
then proceed to the last floor (sub-level 5). Get the final treasures,
then proceed into the room with the secret letter. After the mission,
you should receive multiple items with high stat boosts and two
to four weapons, also with high stat boosts.
An easy way to get a level 4 weapon is to go to free mode under
any difficulty setting, then select Okuni's Tale. Go to the final
scenario on part A. Complete the mission, and at about the third
level there will be a large octagon-shaped room. In the center
is a platform. Go all the way to the other side of the octagon
to find a break in the handrail. Jump on the platforms to the
center get a level 4 weapon. Then, complete the rest of the stage.
To get third or fourth weapons, first choose free mode. Then,
choose the character you want. Select Mitsuhide's Tale, and finally
choose Gifu Infiltration. Go through the stage until you get to
the floor where you fight Ranmaru Mori. Go out to where he is
located, then go to the right side of the room. Attack the crate
on that side to get a new weapon. This should give you a third
or fourth weapon.
Use the following trick to get level 4 weapons for low level characters
easily. First, get Shingen and go to his story mode. When you
get to the Siege Of Azuchi Castle level, thwart the fire attack,
beat Mitsuhide to Nobunaga, then let Mitsuhide join your side.
After this, let him die while he is withdrawing. Then, kill everyone
remaining and you will unlock the Kawanakajima Showdown level.
After completing Kawanakajima Showdown, go to free mode and get
any general. When you start, go directly down to the bottom left
where Keiji is waiting. If you wait until he attacks he is noticeably
more difficult. He is still easy, but gets more annoying if you
wait. Kill him and get his weapon, then kill Kenshin to complete
the level. This works almost all of the time. If it does not work
the first time, keep doing it.
Benji of Buda.
Hint: Level 5 weapons:
You can earn a level 5 weapon under any difficulty

route, then take all the enemy gates and the supply team will
appear. They appear slightly to the east of your home camp and

In the Battle of Yamazaki upper version, first defeat Nakamura
Kazuuji and the guard captains on Tennouzan . A mission will appear
to assist Matsuda Masachika towards the south. Do so by defeating
Nakagawa Kiyohide and Takayama Shigetomo. Next, clear the Tennouzan
of enemies quickly before the Maeda Keiji charge or enemy reinforcements
events show up about five minutes into the battle. If you do so,
a supply team will appear near the enemy commander, heading towards
the cave up north. Defeat the captain for the weapon. Note: You
cannot let your guard captains on the Tennouzan die.
Weapon: Aramasa of Orochi
Stats: Base Attack 48, Night Element, Musou +45, Attack +26, Mounted

it and let him be defeated. Next, defeat Imagawa's generals until
he has two remaining. Hanzou will show up and run towards the
enemy base as support. Get to the base first and the supply team
will appear near the southwest, near Hideyoshi's original location.

the enemy camp and continue towards 1,000 opponents. A supply
team will appear near the southwest of the map and move towards

Hint: Only four missions in Magoichi Saika's
On The fourth mission, Skirmish Of Kyoto, let the enemy's
fire attack succeed. then defeat Nobunaga Oda before your leader
Hint: Fifth mission for Magoichi Saika:
From mission 1, successfully snipe Nobunaga Oda then
clear the mission. Continue sniping Nobunaga Oda until the fourth
mission. When there, control the strongholds and stop the fire
attack. After that, go to the rooftop and snipe him. After you
shoot him, jump off and defeat him before your leader surrenders.
Your next mission will be to eliminate Nobunaga Oda. Defeat him
and you unlock the fifth mission. It is a tower mission.
Hint: Easy items:
An easy way to get items is to play the Abyss survivor
game. If you get Hanzo up to rank 20 with a level 4 weapon, you
can run through the dungeon fairly easily. It is best if Hanzo
has level 2 or 3 "healing items are stronger" skill.
Also make sure Hanzo has the mastery skill where True Musou is
always available. If the weapon has the Flame element on it, the
Musou will make jets of fire around Hanzo. If you run through
the tower sub-levels directly to the next staircase down (not
killing a lot of peasants), you can clear the floor in about a
minute and a half. After three sub-levels, you can save or continue.
If you go deeper, the items get better, but the opponents get
more difficult. If you see an officer that is not blocking the
stairs, kill him as he normally has healing items.
Hint: Easy experience:
If you are using a level 4 weapon you can claim better
experience, even if you are not skilled. Use the Charge Attack
power on an officer. When he is dizzy, attack him with Musou and
you will get 1,000 experience after he is defeated.
Hint: Easy health:
When you are fighting and your health is red, run in
circles and let your Musou charge by itself. Then, turn around
and do your true Musou attack. Repeat this until there are enough
people for you to handle, the enemy officer is dead, you find
health, or you get health because of a dark elemental weapon.
Hint: Regain horse's full health:
Whenever your horse is about to die or has some damage
done to it, get off, then get back on. The horse's health will
be full again.
Hint: Guan Yu and Dong Zhou reference:
When you are inside Osaka castle, on the first floor
you will find pictures of Guan Yu and Dong Zhou from the Dynasty
Warriors series on the wall. Note: Try to find all the rooms
in the first floor.
