1. INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a guide for Koei/Omega Force's action game Sengoku Musou 2. 
Sengoku Musou 2 is the sequel to the popular Sengoku Musou, known in
America/Europe as Samurai Warriors. Sengoku Musou 2 adds many new
characters and features to the franchise.

This guide is about each character's fourth weapon, a unique weapon that
can be earned only by performing specific tasks on a specific stage. Fourth
weapons have the highest base attack for that character as well as many
useful bonuses.

This FAQ makes use of SJIS encoding in order to display Japanese
characters. I included this feature so that if you do not know
Japanese, you can easily match up the characters on your TV screen
to the characters in this guide. You will need to have support for
viewing Japanese characters on your computer, however. Newer versions
of Windows should have it built in; otherwise, you'll either need to
get a program like NJStar Communicator, or you'll need to get 
Japanese character support for Internet Explorer and open this file 
in IE instead of Notepad/Wordpad. Go up to View and select Encoding,
then pick Japanese (Auto-Select) to view the characters properly.

The only website authorized to post this FAQ is www.gamefaqs.com. If 
you see this document elsewhere, not only are they posting without my 
permission, but they likely do not have the most current version of this 
FAQ. Emails to me asking questions already answered in the FAQ, even if 
the answers are not in the version you are reading, will be deleted 
without response.

2. FOURTH WEAPONS LIST
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This list is ordered in the same order as the character select screen,
so Sanada Yukimura comes first, Maeda Keiji comes second, and so on.
Each section gives the name and stats of that general's fourth weapon
and the stage it can be obtained on, with the methods to do so.
Please note that fourth weapons must be obtained on Hard “‚¢ difficulty
and that you must have finished that character's Musou Mode first, not
including their Gaiden. Weapons need to be earned in Musou Mode, not in
Free Mode; you can still use 2P to fulfill the conditions. The exceptions
are Okuni and Ranmaru, who do not have Musou Modes; their fourth weapons
are earned in the Infinite Castle by doing specific missions.
Upon fulfilling the conditions for a fourth weapon, you will get either
a Precious Item report (‹Md•i•ñ) or a supply team notification. Once this 
happens, you can check in your message history (î•ñ—š—ð) to find where on the 
map the box or supply team has appeared. As an added bonus compared to the 
other Musou games, the weapons will show up as a mission (red dot or X on the 
map) so you'll always know where it is, a very nice touch. In the case of a 
box, which is handily colored in black unlike most boxes, all you have to do
is break it open and pick up the item. In the case of a supply team, you 
have to chase the supply team down and defeat the captain to obtain the 
weapon before the supply team leaves the map. 
In Sengoku Musou 2, all 4th weapons have 8 slots for stat bonuses. Multiple
bonuses for the same stat will stack; for instance, Sanada Yukimura's
fourth weapon has two slots with Attack + giving him a total Attack bonus
of +35, even though the maximum for a single slot is +20.

In Yukimura's fifth stage, the Osaka Campaign (‘åã‚̐w), you'll start in
the castle. Defeat the general who comes up here and make your way downstairs
and out. Defeat the enemy generals massed in the courtyard. Once the front
gates open, the Tokugawa army will send a cannon to attack the castle.
You must destroy the cannon before it begins firing. Around the same time,
Inahime will come up towards the castle from the east and Date Masamune
will charge from the west. Go east and defeat Inahime before she enters
the castle. Now cross the courtyard to the west and head northwest to
intercept Masamune. Defeat him as well before he enters the castle and
you'll receive a precious item report. Enter the castle from the west
door that Masamune was trying to enter and go up to the second floor
to find the box with the weapon. Then just finish the stage normally.
You'll want to seal all of the gates around the middle area to make things
easier on your commander. Remember that the AI has a very tough time
guarding Yukimura's C3-3.

*Susanoo is a fire deity in Shinto.

On Keiji's fourth stage, the Battle of Hasedou (’·’J“°‚̐킢), your simple
goal is to get 1000 kills. By far the majority of the kills you will get
will be in front of the third gate, when repeated waves of reinforcements
show up to the south. Simply kill everything you can, and don't let too many
enemies run away through the gates. Remember that you can remove your
bodyguard (square on the bodyguard selection screen) if your bodyguards
are stealing too many kills. Your ally generals will be ambushed by Date
Masamune to the north and will probably start dying, but don't worry;
Naoe Kanetsugu is the only one you need to keep alive, and he's pretty
hardy. Once you've attained 1000 kills, the supply team will show up
from the entry point southwest of the third gate and head southeast.
Intercept them (good thing one of Keiji's specials is to call his horse),
then hurry up to Kanetsugu and defeat all of the generals around him to
finish the stage.

In Nobunaga's third stage, the Battle of Tedorigawa (ŽèŽæì‚̐킢), 
you must assist five of your generals in retreating. The generals in
question are Hashiba Hideyoshi, Shibata Katsuie (ŽÄ“cŸ‰Æ), Maeda
Toshiie (‘O“c—˜‰Æ), Takigawa Kazumasu (‘êìˆê‰v), and Niwa Nagahide 
(’O‰H’·G). As you approach each general you'll get the mission to assist
them in retreating, which involves defeating a nearby enemy general.
After you defeat the general, your ally will retreat to the rear lines
marked by the Xs. Be warned that if they encounter other generals along
the way they may stop and fight, so defeat as many generals on your
side of the river as possible. After all 5 have retreated, Nobunaga
orders a counterattack. The supply team will appear just south of
Kenshin's base and proceed southward. Defeat them and finish the
stage normally. Be careful of the ambush near your home base late in
the stage.

       Attack Range +37

On his Gaiden, Mitsuhide Battle For Unification (ŒõG“V‰º“ˆêí),
the first step is to defeat Date Masamune, Maeda Keiji, Shibata Katsuie,
Okuni, Sanada Yukimura, and Naoe Kanetsugu. Shibata Katsuie starts out
close to your base, so you'll probably want to go after him first. As
the stage progresses Maeda Keiji and Okuni will also charge your base,
as will Yukimura and Kanetsugu. Date Masamune is camped out to the south.
After defeating all of them, proceed towards Tokugawa's home base. After
defeating some of the generals outside, Honda Tadakatsu will appear just
inside. Approach him and it will trigger a mission to defeat him. At
the same time Fuuma Kotarou will appear in the northeast, and the Akechi
army will charge. This will prompt the supply team to show up a short
while later from the north gate. Pick up the weapon, defeat Tadakatsu
to open the door to Tokugawa, and then defeat him to finish the stage.

On Kenshin's Gaiden, Conquest of Kyushu (‹ãBª”°), you must defeat a fair
number of generals by yourself. First head up the left side of the map past
the geyser area. You should get a scene momentarily where the geyser starts
again, blocking your retreat. Make your way over towards Takeda Shingen,
and on the way defeat Hashiba Hideyoshi, Hachisuka Koroku (–I{‰ê¬˜Z),
and Hori Hidemasa (–xG­). Soon Nene and Maeda Toshiie (‘O“c—˜‰Æ)
will appear; defeat them as well. The next requirement is to head to
the enemy home base in the northwest. However, if you have time you should
clean up the rest of the map before you do so. Beware though that if you
kill all the enemy generals outside, your army will charge the northwest
base, and you must enter that base before they do to continue with the
weapon's requirements. Once you enter, Shimazu Yoshihiro and Shimazu
Yoshihisa (“‡’Ë`‹v) will reveal themselves to be fakes, and the REAL
ones will show up in the center of the map. At the same time Nouhime
and Oda Nobutada (D“cM’‰) will come towards the northwest fort as well.
You'll have all four of those generals (two of them being the fake
Shimazus) on you, and you must defeat them all. Finally, Akechi Mitsuhide
and Mori Ranmaru will show up. Defeat Mitsuhide first and then Ranmaru.
This will cause the supply team to show up from the gate inside Kenshin's
camp. Once you get the weapon, you're not done yet; you must fight the real
Shimazus, who are both in hyper and both fairly hard. Their stats are so
high that if you aren't maxed, you may not be able to even stagger them.
You can use Kenshin's exploding doll special (R1+T) to attempt to dizzy
them, but be prepared for a tough fight.

OICHI@‚¨Žs

       Defense +34
       Musou Charge +32

On Oichi's Gaiden, Revolt at Shizugatake (æ˃–Šx‚Ì•Ï), begin by defeating
some nearby enemy generals. Okuni will show up to assist you, and Nene
will show up on Nouhime's side. Eventually Azai Nagamasa will try and
charge out of his home base to assist you, but he'll be ambushed. Go
up and defend him by defeating his ambushers. Now go all the way to
the south and defeat Oda Nobunaga. Return and defeat Nouhime (beware,
Nene will be in your way, and you can't defeat her yet). After you do 
so, Tachibana Ginchiyo and Inahime show up. Defeat them both. Okuni will
also turn hostile around this time, but again, you cannot defeat her
yet. Mori Ranmaru shows up as well; defeat him. Finally, you can now
defeat Okuni and Nene, in that order. Nouhime will show up a second time,
and the supply team will show up as well, from a gate on the left side of
the center area. Pick it up and defeat Nouhime to finish. This weapon
can be quite tough to get thanks to the sheer number of unique generals
mobbing you and Oichi's only so-so crowd control.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

       Musou Charge +35

To obtain this weapon you must clear the Priestess's Temple Donation
Solicitation Pilgrimage (›Þ—‚ÌŠ©is‹r) mission in the Infinite Castle twice.
Of course, you must successfully complete the mission playing as Okuni.
The spawning of this mission appears to be somewhat random, so just take
it as it comes up.
The first floor in the mission has nothing special; on each of the three
subsequent stages, you will have to defeat some subgenerals and then
eventually a general such as Tokugawa Ieyasu or Oda Nobunaga. On the fifth
and final floor of the mission, you'll come across Maeda Keiji fighting a
fake Okuni. Defeat the fake Okuni to finish the mission. The second time
you do this, Maeda Keiji will then say he has something for you and turn 
hostile. Defeat Keiji and he'll drop the weapon box with this weapon in it.

SAIKA MAGOICHI@ŽG‰ê‘·Žs

       Attack Range +39

This weapon wins my vote for the most annoying weapon to get. It certainly
isn't the most difficult, but it sure is annoying. The conditions are
simple enough - beat Nobunaga as fast as possible. The problem is that
it's on Magoichi's fourth stage, Escape from Honnouji (–{”\Ž›’Eo).
As you probably noticed when you were completing his Musou Mode, this
entire map is filled with mist and it never lifts, so you never know
exactly where you are, and you don't have access to your map or minimap.
In any case, keep a few tips in mind. Definitely equip a horse, and stick
close to the walls. If you have to get off of your horse, for instance
to fight a general, make sure you point your horse in the direction
you were headed before you get off. That way you'll know which way to go
when you get back on. Also fight as close as possible to your horse. If
you get too far, you may never find it again!
With that said you should study the map carefully at the stage preparation
screen. Although it won't tell you such, you start in the southwest corner,
facing north. Once the stage starts head northwards, hugging the wall
to your left (which is the west wall). After a little bit of riding
you'll see a villager being attacked by some bandits. Defeat the bandit
leaders and continue on. A little further north you'll come across another
bandit ambush. Save the villagers once again. This happens around the
northwest corner. Now turn east (again by hugging the wall to your left)
and continue forward. Another event will occur, this time with Mori Ranmaru
and Nouhime appearing. Defeat them both. Continue east and you'll finally
spot a fort (which is the fort in the northeast corner of the map). Defeat
the general guarding the doors and enter. Now Nobunaga will finally appear
in the fort. Defeat him as quickly as possible. At this point you SHOULD
get the message saying that the supply team (—A‘—•”‘à) has appeared. But 
of course, you have no idea where, and I can't tell you which way they're 
going either. Ride out the south door of the fort (in other words NOT the door
that you entered by) and go straight south. Once you hit a dead end, turn
right (westwards). Keep going and you should be able to find the supply
team. I encountered them a little bit away from the southwest corner,
but again it's hard to tell exactly where they're going. Just to be safe,
I'd save as soon as you get the message that the supply team has appeared,
so you can reload if you aren't able to find them within a minute or two.
Once you defeat them the stage isn't over; you have to find Fuuma Kotarou
and defeat him. I found him along the east side of the map outside the
fort, but it's possible that he shows up wherever he wants.

In Takeda Shingen's fourth stage, the Battle of Nagashino (’·ŽÂ‚̐킢),
take Nagashino Fort right in front of you. You'll have to defeat the
general outside to open the doors, then defeat both generals inside to do
so. Afterwards proceed south and protect the other fort by defeating
Sakai Tadatsugu (Žðˆä’‰ŽŸ). At about this time Honda Tadakatsu and
Hashiba Hideyoshi will proceed eastwards and attempt to pincer your
commander's base from north and south. Defeat them both before they can
enter the base. I'd take Tadakatsu first as Shima Sakon will go and delay 
Hideyoshi for you. I'd also take out Akechi Mitsuhide along the way since 
he'll be headed towards the fort in the southeast. Once this is done
you'll get an event where it begins raining, thus nullifying Nobunaga's
muskets. Shingen will order a charge and a few moments later the supply
team will show up from the south gate, proceeding eastwards. Pick up
the weapon, then defeat Tokugawa Ieyasu and Oda Nobunaga to finish the
stage.

In his fifth stage, Decisive Battle of Mikatagahara (ŽO•ûƒ–Œ´Œˆí),
your simple goal is to defeat all enemy generals except for Tokugawa
Ieyasu while keeping all of your ally generals alive. The first thing
you should do is ignore the central fort and take out the forts on the
east and west sides. This will cause Miyamoto Musashi to get impatient
and charge, at which point he'll fall into an ambush. The effect of the
ambush is that he'll lose his hyper mode, so he'll be much easier to
go in and kill. After taking the center fort, make your way around the
map killing all of the other enemy generals. The only ones you won't
be able to reach yet are Inahime and Ieyasu himself. Take the 
opportunity to take as many gates as you can too, as things are about
to get a lot tougher. Once you enter Ieyasu's camp the doors will lock,
and Ieyasu will reveal himself to be Hanzou in disguise. At the same
time the real Tokugawa Ieyasu will appear outside the camp, and he
and Inahime will charge your allies, as well as Honda Tadakatsu and
other reinforcements to the north. You must defeat Hanzou as quickly
as possible to open the gates. Then speed out and aid your allies,
prioritizing those who have multiple generals on them. Killing
generals speedily is of the essence, especially when it comes to
Tadakatsu. Once you've defeated everybody except Ieyasu, the supply
team will show up from the northwest gate and head eastwards. After
they show up, all that's left to do is defeat Ieyasu to finish the
stage.

On Nouhime's fifth stage, Revolt at Honnouji (–{”\Ž›‚Ì•Ï), you must
succeed in the mission to defend Oda Nobutada (D“cM’‰), and then
oddly enough you must let Mori Ranmaru die without triggering the mission
to protect him, with Oda Nobutada still alive. As the stage starts, first 
defeat the two nearby enemy generals attacking Nobunaga. After the fire 
attack starts, make your way up the left side (you'll have to take a detour 
through the small alleys) and approach Oda Nobutada. This will trigger the 
mission to defend him, which you can succeed at by defeating both generals 
attacking him. Now return to Nobunaga's side and defeat the new generals 
attacking him. Watch out for Nobutada; if he gets in trouble you'll have
to go and save, but of course that means Nobunaga himself might get into
trouble. After awhile Akechi Mitsuhide will pop up on the east side. This 
will prompt Mori Ranmaru to charge Mitsuhide's position. Let him and take 
out any remaining generals trying to attack Nobunaga. After Ranmaru gets near
Mitsuhide, do NOT approach either of them, as that will trigger the mission
to protect Ranmaru. If you've already defeated everybody around Nobunaga,
feel free to go up back to where Nobutada is and continue protecting him.
Ranmaru will probably take quite a long time to die. Once he does, though,
the supply team will show up from the west gate near Nobutada's position,
conveniently enough. Pick it up and defeat Mitsuhide to finish the stage.

On Hanzou's Gaiden, Attack on Ueda Castle (ã“céU—ªí), your two goals
are to defeat Fuuma Kotarou and all of his clones, and then defeat
Sanada Yukimura before defeating Sanada Masayuki (^“c¹K). First
go up the left side of the map towards the small fort in the northwest
corner. Defeat the general there and it will prompt Kotarou to show up
nearby. At around the same time, the Sanada army will try and start
a water attack on your army by sending some spies to the small fort
just southeast of the northwest fort. Although you don't have to stop
the water attack to get Hanzou's fourth, I highly recommend it as it
stops your morale from plummeting, and the spies aren't too difficult.
You'll need to defeat the three spy leaders (you can tell who they are
because they have names over their head) to succeed. As a bonus, when you
do succeed your map will fill in with all of the hidden passages. Now
go back and defeat Kotarou. Upon doing so, he'll spawn copies of himself
around the map. His three copies are in the southeast corner, just south
of Yukimura, and in the back of the castle on the first floor, on the right
side. Once you've defeated all three, now you must defeat Yukimura. This
is unquestionably the hardest part of getting this weapon. Normally on this
stage you would defeat Masayuki first, capturing the castle and causing
Yukimura to lose his super-hyper status and just being regular hyper. But
to get this weapon you'll need to defeat him first. If your stats are too
low, you won't even be able to stagger him. Once you've defeated him (good
luck) you will receive a precious item report. The weapon is in the back
of the castle on the first floor, on the right side, behind where one of
Kotarou's copies was.

The path to get this weapon is basically a continuation of the Infinite
Castle mission events used to unlock Ranmaru in the first place. Once
Ranmaru becomes usable, Akechi Mitsuhide's Request 3 (–¾’qŒõG‚ÌŠè‚¢3)
spawns on floor 41. You must accompany him through the next few floors.
Upon clearing this mission, Maeda Keiji's Request 2 (‘O“cŒcŽŸ‚ÌŠè‚¢‚»‚Ì2)
spawns on floor 31. Complete this mission as well and a new mission,
Maeda Keiji's Request "The Truth..." (‘O“cŒcŽŸ‚ÌŠè‚¢@^ŽÀ‚́c) spawns
on floor 46. Complete this mission and on floor 50 Maeda Keiji will decide
to test you and turn hostile. Defeat him and you'll gain the weapon.
Note that only the last mission need be done with Ranmaru to earn the
weapon; you can clear the other missions using any character you want.

In Hideyoshi's second stage, the Battle of Shizugatake (æ˃–Šx‚̐킢),
you must defeat Maeda Toshiie (‘O“c—˜‰Æ) and convince him to retreat
before Shibata Katsuie orders him to charge, and then you must defeat
Maeda Keiji when he charges your home base. Toshiie is holed up in the
fort on the west side of the map. Katsuie very quickly orders Toshiie
to charge, so pretty much the first thing you should do is ignore the
mission to take the four forts on the east side and go towards Toshiie's
base, entering from the east. Defeat the guard captain guarding the door,
then charge in and defeat Toshiie. If he goes into hyper mode, it means
that Katsuie ordered him to charge and you're too late. Once he's defeated
his ally generals will also withdraw from the battle. Go back out and
towards your own home base. Maeda Keiji will begin to charge your home base,
but if you go and engage him up north chances are the other enemy generals
will take out your base while you're doing so. It's better to let Keiji
come to you; in the meantime, take out the generals that are already
making their way to your base. Of course, I wouldn't let Keiji IN your
base, because if your base commander is caught in the crossfire he'll
quickly die. Keiji is of course in hyper mode, so be careful and fight
him near a gate if possible for the health item. Remember that Hideyoshi's
C7 is a throw (unblockable), though in general Hideyoshi's attacks come
out so quickly anyway that it shouldn't be too bad fighting Keiji. Once
Keiji is defeated, the supply team will appear from the gate near Toshiie's
base and head southwards. Pick up the weapon and complete the stage
normally.

On Tadakatsu's Gaiden, Match Before Tenshou (“V³Œä‘OŽd‡), you must
defeat all of the following generals before they are able to enter one
of the three forts on the map: Hattori Hanzou, Nene, Fuuma Kotarou,
Maeda Keiji, Miyamoto Musashi, Sasaki Kojirou, Toyotomi Hideyoshi,
Date Masamune, and Tokugawa Ieyasu. The enemies appear in four waves
(i.e. ninjas, and then swordsmen, etc.) and the order is somewhat random.
Once they do appear, the generals will head for one of the three forts
on the map; if you draw near a general, you'll get a mission to stop him
from entering whatever fort he is headed to, which also appears somewhat
random. You must succeed in all 9 missions. If a general goes hyper mode,
it means he's successfully entered the fort he was headed to and you've
failed to get the weapon. It doesn't matter if the other named generals
enter any of the forts, so prioritize the generals listed above first.
This is much easier if you play on 2P and get the 2P to distract (but not
defeat) the generals from reaching their goal while you take them on
one by one. Once you've defeated all nine generals, the supply team
will show up from a southeast gate and head northeast. Pick it up and
kill the remaining generals to finish the stage.

In Ina's first stage, Attack on Odawara Castle (¬“cŒ´éU—ªí), your
simple task is to defeat all enemy generals other than Houjou Ujinao 
(–kðŽ’¼) and Houjou Ujimasa (–kðŽ­) personally. Be careful that you
don't get your kills stolen by other generals or your bodyguard. Take
full advantage of the midstage save system. The enemy generals outside
the castle to the north and south are the ones most in danger of being
killed by other generals, so prioritize them first. You must also defeat
Fuuma Kotarou on the 2nd floor of the castle and the two generals hiding
in the supply depot to the southwest as part of the conditions. Once
you've defeated all of these generals, the supply team will appear from
the northeast gate and head southwards. Intercept them to obtain the
weapon.

On Ieyasu's fifth stage, the Battle of Sekigahara (ŠÖƒ–Œ´‚̐킢), your
goal is to defeat all enemy generals. You don't have to keep your allies
alive, which is helpful. The only tricky part is that you do have to beat
the generals that normally defect to your side if you play the stage
normally. Yoshikawa Hiroie (‹gìL‰Æ) and Mouri Hidemoto (–Ñ—˜GŒ³)
defect if you defeat Ankokuji Ekei (ˆÀ‘Ž›Œbàù), so leave them all
alone for now. Start by just defeating enemy generals in the central
area, and take out the enemy cannons too to stop your morale from
dropping too much. After awhile, Kobayakawa Hideaki (¬‘ìGH)
will start to waver on whether to defect to your side or not. Ieyasu
will send Fuse Magobei (•zŽ{‘·•º‰q) to shoot at Kobayakawa to convince
him. If Magobei reaches the mountain looking over his camp, Hideaki
will defect, so you do NOT want this to happen. Rather, just stay away
from Magobei and let him die. It might take awhile depending on the
status of your morale. Once he dies, the western army will get a
significant morale boost and all of the generals will charge your camp.
Now you can defeat all of the enemy generals without worry. Once you
defeated everybody except Ishida Mitsunari, the supply team will appear
from the fort in the northwest, heading south.

On Mitsunari's Gaiden, the Edo Campaign (]ŒË‚̐w), you must fulfill
a certain number of missions. First go to the eastern gate and defeat
Mogami Yoshiaki (Åã‹`Œõ). This will open that gate. At the same time
the north gate will open and your general Ukita Hideie (‰FŠì“cG‰Æ)
will be lured into a trap. Go up there and you'll get a mission to save
him; do so by defeating the nearby enemy generals.  At this point
some of your generals will go traitor. Defeat them - Yoshikawa Hiroie 
(‹gìL‰Æ), Mouri Hidemoto (–Ñ—˜GŒ³), and Kobayakawa Hideaki
(¬‘ìGH). Return to inside the castle and defeat all of the generals
inside in another mission. Once you do, Fuuma Kotarou will appear and
attempt to sneak attack your base from a secret door that opens in the
west. Go and defeat him before he can arrive at your base. Now defeat
the one guard captain inside the east door of the castle to open a door
and find a captured ally general, Ankokuji Ekei (ˆÀ‘Ž›Œbàù). You'll
receive a mission to escort him back to your homebase. He's a little
annoying since he stops to fight a lot of people, so clear out as many
of the enemies as you can. He will be sneak attacked by some generals
as he moves, so make sure you escort him personally. Now once you've
done so, enter the castle proper from the north side (very important;
if you enter the south side first and go in too far, you won't
be able to get the weapon). Defeat the general there and you'll find
a sealed door. Ekei will mention that there should be another path
from the south side. Once this happens, the precious item report
will trigger and the weapon appears on the bridge between the two
parts of the castle. Now go to the south side and cross over to the
north part of the castle, finding the weapon along the way. Beware as
the stronger generals like Date Masamune and Honda Tadakatsu are lurking
inside the castle.

On Nagamasa's third stage, Defense of Odani Castle (¬’Jé–h‰qí),
first proceed forward and defeat Hori Hidemasa (Œ@G­) and Kani Saizou 
(‰ÂŽ™Ë‘ ). Proceed onwards and defeat Niwa Nagahide (’O‰H’·G) and 
Kanamori Nagachika (‹àX’·‹ß) to take the northwest fort. Immediately 
head towards the fort in the center. Hideyoshi will break the walls and
begin charging the castle. You need to defeat him before he invades the
castle. Meanwhile the fort's doors will close and three more generals
will ambush you. Defeat them all. At around this time Oichi will begin
moving towards the northeast. Once she arrives, Maeda Toshiie (‘O“c—˜‰Æ)
and Ikeda Tsuneoki (’r“cP‹») will show up in the north. Defeat them.
Now hurry to the fort in the southeast and defeat the generals attacking
before Kaihou Tsunachika (ŠC–kje) is defeated. Nagamasa will then order
his army to charge. This will cause the supply team to show up from the
center gate on the west side. It'll head eastwards. Take the weapon and
finish the stage.

On Sakon's fifth stage, the Battle of Sekigahara (ŠÖƒ–Œ´‚̐킢), your
simple task is to defeat all enemy generals while keeping all of your
allies alive. You don't need to defeat the generals that defect from your
side, so you can ignore them unless they are swarming one of your
allies. Once you've defeat all of those enemy generals, the supply
team will show up from a gate along the south side of the map,
heading west. Intercept them and defeat Tokugawa Ieyasu to finish the
stage. The vast majority of enemies on this map are generic generals,
so this shouldn't be too hard even despite the condition that you need
to keep your allies alive.

On Yoshihiro's fourth stage, Breakthrough at Sekigahara (ŠÖƒ–Œ´“Ë”jí),
you must complete a number of missions personally. First defeat a few
generals in the center area just to clear things out. Now head towards
Ishida Mitsunari's position camped out in the southwest. A mission will pop
up to defend him, which involves defeating the three enemy generals
besieging him. Kill all of them yourself (i.e., no kill stealing). Now
make your way towards Shima Sakon in the east to trigger the mission to
defend him. Along the way, Tokugawa Ieyasu will probably order Hattori
Hanzou to charge Mitsunari. If he does so, go down south and intercept
Hanzou, and defeat him personally. Yoshihiro will then tell Mitsunari
to gather in the center. Take out more generals in the center if you
think Mitsunari will have problems. Then return to defending Sakon, which
again involves defeating three enemy generals. After defeating those
three, Ieyasu will order Honda Tadakatsu to charge. Defeat him as he
comes down south and Yoshihiro will order Sakon to the center. Now go
up to the northwest corner, and again defeat the three enemy generals
besieging Tachibana Ginchiyo's camp. Afterwards Inahime will charge
westwards, so go and defeat her. Once Ginchiyo reaches the center of the
map, the real fun begins. A whole mess of Tokugawa army replacements
suddenly appears, surrounding your allies in the general. You'll then
get a mission to eliminate the Eastern Army, which basically involves
killing every new general on the map. You must again do so personally.
Be careful, Ginchiyo and Sakon have a nasty tendency to steal your kills,
since they swing so much faster than you. Save after every successful
kill on your part. Once you kill every general, the doors to Ieyasu's
camp opens; at the same time a supply team will show up from the northwest
corner, heading south. Grab the weapon and then return to defeat
Ieyasu to finish the stage.

On Ginchiyo's first stage, Conquest of Kyushu (‹ãBª”°), first head
eastwards across the bridge. After the ambush scene, defeat Shimazu
Iehisa (“‡’ÉƋv). Continue eastwards to the fort in the northeast and
defeat Shimazu Tadanaga there (“‡’Ã’‰’·). Now loop down southwards into
the fort where Shimazu Yoshihiro awaits. Defeat him and the doors will
open. Head out the east side and go south - time for another ambush
sequence. After this one, defeat Shimazu Toshihisa (“‡’Í΋v). Now
go down to the main fortress where the boss of the stage, Shimazu
Yoshihisa (“‡’Ë`‹v), awaits. This will prompt Iehisa, Toshihisa, and 
Yoshihiro to show up as backup. All four of them will be in hyper mode. 
Now the tricky part - you must defeat IN ORDER Iehisa, Toshihisa, and
Yoshihiro. This will prompt the supply team to show up from a gate to
the northeast, which will head westwards. Ride northwest from the enemy
base leaving Yoshihisa behind (if you defeat him, the stage ends!) to
intercept the supply team. Despite having four hyper generals on you
in the end, this is Ginchiyo's first stage, and her moveset is pretty
darn good, so this shouldn't give you that many problems.

In Kanetsugu's Gaiden, Uesugi Conquest (ã™ª”°), your basic goal
is to defeat Date Masamune, Honda Tadakatsu, Hattori Hanzou, and Inahime.
First defeat the generals that begin charging your base. Soon Uesugi
Kagekatsu (ã™ŒiŸ) will show up in the fort in the northeast. At
the same time the Date army will show up in the north. Approach Kagekatsu
and you'll get a mission to escort him to your base. Do so by defeating
the nearby generals. As he draws near, Date Masamune will show up as
well. Defeat him and Honda Tadakatsu, Hattori Hanzou, and Inahime will
show up in the forts arrayed along the map. Maeda Keiji and Sanada Yukimura
will assist you by taking Hanzou's and Inahime's forts, respectively, so
you should first go after Honda Tadakatsu. Keiji and Yukimura are both
pretty hardy, so you don't have to worry about them losing all that
quickly (although you lose if either of them die, so be warned). After
defeating Tadakatsu, Hanzou, and Ina, the supply team will show up from
the gate north of the central plain and travel northeast. Catch up to
them on a horse; then just defeat Tokugawa Ieyasu in the southwest corner
to end the stage.

In Nene's third stage, Battle of Komaki Nagakute (¬–q’·‹vŽè‚̐킢),
you must save the detached force to the east, take Iwasaki Fort,
and then defeat all of Hattori Hanzou, Inahime, and Honda Tadakatsu. The
first thing you should do is leave your camp and immediately head to the
east side of the map. The detached force is extremely weak and will lose
quickly if you do not get to them right away. To save them, defeat
Niwa Ujishige (’O‰HŽd) and Ii Naomasa (ˆäˆÉ’¼­). Now enter Iwasaki
to the immediate south and take it by defeating Sakakibara Yasumasa
(åŒ´N­). This will prompt Tokugawa Ieyasu to move his camp to the west,
while also causing Hanzou to sneak attack your base and Tadakatsu and
Inahime to come and try and take back Iwasaki. It takes them some time to
get there, so it's probably better to go back to your camp and defeat
Hanzou. Hanzou will seal the doors so you'll have to use the ninja route
just east of the main door to get in; you should defeat him before he
reaches your main camp. With him defeated, return to Iwasaki and defeat
Inahime and Tadakatsu. Beware, since Tadakatsu is in hyper mode. As an
added bonus, defeating the pair nets you 2000 gold. Once this is
accomplished, the supply team will appear from the gate to the left of the
middle area. It should be easy enough to intercept them on a horse.

On Kotarou's Gaiden, Defense of Odawara Castle (¬“cŒ´é–h‰qí),
you'll need to fulfill a number of missions. The first thing you should
do is double jump over the ninja path in the wall and start defeating
enemies in the southern area outside the walls. Pretty soon a siege
device will appear as well. You need to destroy the siege device, but
make sure you wait until AFTER the mission to destroy it has spawned
before you do, or you'll screw yourself out of the weapon. Now
proceed north and defend the front doors by defeating the three attacking
enemy generals without letting Chiba Naoshige (ç—t’¼d) die.
Continue northwards and defend the northern fort by defeating the
attackers without letting Houjou Ujiteru (–kðŽÆ) die. At about
this time Nene will infiltrate the castle, but ignore her for now. Go
towards Hideyoshi's base and eventually Tokugawa Ieyasu and many
reinforcements will show up inside the castle. Return to the castle
and succeed in the mission by defeating all six Tokugawa army generals.
Continue in inside the castle and you'll find that Nene has rigged the
castle to explode. You'll get a mission to stop her plan. You must
do so by defeating all bomb ninjas and all gunpowder kegs on the first
and second floors. The placement is random each time, so search carefully.
When you've gotten all of them you'll get the mission completed notice,
so you'll be able to know if you've missed any. With that done climb up
to the third floor and defeat Nene. Now finally save your ally general
in the southwest corner, Ogawara Yasuhiro (¬Š}Œ´NL). Once you've
defeated the generals around him, he'll begin retreating towards the
castle doors. Escort him along the way, as he'll be sneak attacked by
Shima Sakon. Once he reaches the castle gates you're done. You'll get
a precious item report and the weapon will appear inside the castle on
the first floor. Pick it up and finish the stage normally.

On Musashi's third stage, Revolt at the Capital (‹ž—Œ“®—) all you
have to do is defeat Tokugawa Ieyasu before he retreats. He starts in the
northwest corner and as soon as the stage starts he begins retreating
eastwards. Ride up there and defeat him before he leaves and the supply
team will appear from a gate along the east side, heading south. Pick
up the weapon and complete the stage normally by allowing Toyotomi
Hideyori to reach the escape point on the east side, then defeating Sasaki
Kojirou when he shows up.

3. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. I can't get these weapons!
A. Make sure you are playing on Hard difficulty. Also, be sure that you are
playing Musou Mode, not Free Mode.

Q. I followed everything you said, and I still didn't get these weapons!
A. If I tell you to defeat a certain general, usually you have to do it
personally. That means the finishing blow HAS to be done by you. Not
your bodyguard, not by Yukimura, but you. You should be able to tell
if you did the finishing blow because you'll get the Experience +200
or whatever floating over your head and your general will say "Tekishou,
uchitottari!" ("I defeated an enemy general!") or something similar.
Barring that, it is possible that there are other conditions that I am
not aware of, such as having to do things within a certain amount of
time, or keeping ally generals alive. These methods are the ones that
worked for me; if they don't work for you, power up your character and
try again to do things faster, in case there is an unspecified time limit.

Q. Can I play 2P?
A. Yes, and in fact I recommend it for certain weapons. However, be
careful that the 2P doesn't steal 1P's kills if it's important for
a certain fourth weapon condition.
