  • Cao Cao's fourth weapon

    Play the Battle Of Xia Pi on the hard difficulty setting. Defeat Gao Shun before you get the message that he is guarding the dam. You can get the message that he has begun guarding the dam, but you must defeat him quickly after that. Then, just defeat Zhang Liao. The precious item box will show up outside the castle just outside the south gate. Because defeating Gao Shun makes the castle be flooded, you must to go in the castle from the north gate and go through to the south gate. Then, just attack Lu Bu. You do not need to defeat him; if you do not defeat him fast enough, he will get bored and run, then and his troops will turn on him and capture him, making you win the stage all the same.

  • Cao Pi's fourth weapon

    Play the Battle Of Wu Zhang Plains on the hard difficulty setting. It is better to do this in Musou Mode than in Free Mode. Wu Zhang Plains is a five-star battle, but in Cao Pi's Musou Mode it is only his fourth stage. Thus, if you do this in Musou Mode the difficulty will be lowered somewhat. First, defeat any three generals (not sub-generals) quickly. The ones that all grouped in the center make good fodder, as except for Wei Yan they are all generic. Once you kill three generals, Zhuge Liang will pass away. Continue fighting normally. At this point it would be a good idea to seal the enemy's supply route over to the east. Soon you will see an event where Jiang Wei lays a group of automatic crossbows on the central platform. Now all you have to do is get up there and break all of them. There will also be juggernauts floating around, not to mention archer towers -- be careful. Once you have destroyed all single automatic crossbows, the precious item box will conveniently appear in the middle of that central platform. Pick it up and finish the stage to earn your fourth weapon.

  • Cao Ren's fourth weapon

    Play Escape From Chi Bí on the hard difficulty setting. Your task is to defeat all enemy reinforcements quickly. This means that you should be able to defeat the reinforcement before Cao Cao's own reinforcement says something along the lines of "Go on first, I'll take care of things here!". You do not need to worry about sub-generals; just get each major general as they show up. After you defeat Guan Ping, immediately go south, as Sun Quan will show up in the southeast. Once you defeat Sun Quan, the precious item box will show up in the little nook between where Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei appeared. Grab the item, then go up and defeat Liu Bei to help Cao Cao escape.

  • Da Qiao's fourth weapon

    Play the Battle of Xia Kou on the hard difficulty setting. You must defeat Cai Mao and Gan Ning before Ling Tong is defeated. Go up the left side first; Gan Ning will appear almost immediately and kill Ling Cao, which will prompt Ling Tong to charge. Gan Ning is in hyper mode for this battle -- be careful. Luckily, you will have Huang Gai and Ling Tong also keeping him busy. Then, just go to the center section and defeat Cai Mao, who is nowhere near as difficult. The precious item box appears just north of Cai Mao's position.

  • Dian Wei's fourth weapon

    Play the Battle of Wan Castle on the hard difficulty setting. First, rendezvous with Cao Cao. Then, lead him to the escape gates, defeating enemies and generals (there will be two of them) along the way. Once Cao Cao leaves the castle and you get the event where Dian Wei stays behind to block the gates, the hard part begins. You must not let a single enemy past the gates until you get the message that Cao Cao's escape is in progress. This usually happens after you have defeated five or six troop leaders (the generic enemies with names over their heads). Be careful, as the troop leaders tend to ignore you and just run straight past you. Once you get the message, the precious item box will appear slightly in front of you. At this point it does not matter if you let people past the gates (let too many and you lose the stage though), so go pick it up.

Do not forget to press Y after every attack to successfully complete the combo.

    Zuo Ci can shoot both fire and ice orbs with his charge attack. Press Y once to shoot fire and twice to shoot ice. You can use this to freeze, then melt the opponent for a large amount of damage.

  • Burning in the air

    While fighting someone difficult, such as a general or the Boss of the stage, set them on fire with a charge attack or equipped item. It will drain their health until they hit the ground. If you set them on fire and continuously juggle them in the air with an attack, the fire will keep diminishing their health.

  • Cut watchtowers in half

    Certain characters have Jump Charge attacks (A + Y) that send them high in the air (for example, Jiang Wei and Yue Ying). Use this move on a watchtower and the top of the tower will fall off and the bottom will stay standing for a few seconds.

  • Recognizing signature weapons

    In order to recognize a character's signature weapon, pay attention to the blue symbol that appears next to the unlocked weapon.

  • Delayed weapon and valuable item messages

    Sometimes the special message will not appear immediately after you complete everything required to obtain the item or message. If you must complete something before a special attack, you will probably have to wait until the attack occurs for the message to pop up. Before giving up on an item or weapon, double check the battle log to see if you missed the message.
