          Introduction
          ============
          This is my first FAQ and first FAQ for this game so 
          Iím not entirely balanced with FAQ skills. I have 
          decided to create a 4th Weapons FAQ to help and guide people
          on their mission to find 4th weapons.
          I will provide easy and useful steps as to unlocking them.

    Player must play hardmode or over to be able to unlock 4th weapons. 
    Unlike previous SW Games,
    these weapons are easier to get but they do still provide a challange. 
    Some weapon requirements 
    require you to complete missions while keeping your allies alive.
     This can be a challange as they die quite easy.
    You are going to have to keep your morale higher than the enemies. . .
    More will be explained below. . .
    
    
    ============================================================================
    1.Yukimura Sanada							SWYS
    ============================================================================
    Assault on the Mid-West
    
    Kill all Generals and Sub-generalsin 20 turns except Nobunaga with Kanetsugu
    Naoe and Yasumasa Sakakibara alive.
    
    You have to kill all generals and subgenerals yourself. If any officer kills
    them, you will not get the weapon. Try getting an A in every mission you are
    given. Don't foeget to use haste, boost or paralyse if you have them. This
    will make things much easier for you.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    2.Tadakatsu Honda							SWTH
    ============================================================================
    Ieyasu's Volition - Dissension in Shinano
    
    Kill 1000 officers and you will get the precious item report.
    
    This is simple, but time consuming. Leave a few majors alive so they take o-
    ver allied bases. This way, it will make it easier to kill enemies. Also take
    advantage of the "Kill as many enemies as you can in >insert time<" missions.
    Another thing is to move 1 square at a time. This will also give you the
    chance to kill more enemies.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    3.Okuni									SWOk
    ============================================================================
    Goemon and Okuni - Flight from the capital
    
    Find all 15 treasure houses in 15 turns. Then defeat Hideyoshi when he shows
    up. You will get this weapon automatically.
    
    This is a really hard one. It is based on luck. The formation of the treasure
    houses change each time. Here are the 3 formations:
    
    The shape of a heart.
    A "G" shape.
    A "W" shape.
    
    It is based on luck on luck which one you get. Try getting the rank "A" and 
    move 3 squares. This way you may get 3 treasure houses in 3 squares. I cannot
    give you much of a stratagey really because this is based entirely on luck.
    Try your best and hope you'll win.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    4.Oichi									SWOi
    ============================================================================
    The oda's conquest - The battle of Anegawa
    
    WITHOUT using Valve Charm, defeat Kazumasa Isono and Kagenori Asakura and you
    will get the precious item report.
    
    Note: You DON'T have to defeat these two yourself. The two main camps can do 
    the job for you if you have enough Rally Charms or damaging charms.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    5.Ina									 SWI
    ============================================================================
    Ieyasu's Volition - Revolt at Mikawa.
    
    Defeat these generals in this order and below 13 turns:
    1)Nagateru Udono
    2)Sessai Taigen
    3)Yasutomo Asahina
    4)Ujizan Imagawa
    5)The 4 backup generals,in a clockwise order from the top left.
    6)If 2 or more generals are in a same battle, 
    you still have to follow the orders.
    7)Special Item Report.
    
    Not much of a strategy here... its simple.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    6.Magoichi Saika							SWMS
    ============================================================================
    Magoichi Saika - Escape from Kyushu
    
    Take the CENTRAL port to the other half of the map (where the cannons located). 
    Defeat every enemy officer except Keiji's unit, INCLUDING subofficers. 
    Take out the Cannons using the Sabotage Charm as well.
    
    During the early course of the stage, you'll obtain a Breach Charm. 
    DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use it to open the side gates. 
    You'll need it to get to the special weapon.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    7.Keiji Maeda								SWKM
    ============================================================================
    Keiji and Magoichi - Encounter in the Northwest
    
    Use Valve within 4 turns, defeat every enemy officer 
    (you don't have to defeat 
    them by yourself)EXCEPT Masashige Jojo and Kanetsugu Naoe,defeat Kenshin Uesugi 
    by yourself and you will obtain the special weapon automatically.
    
    Keep doing the usual stuff. . .Cureall, heal, rally or whatever you can do to
    boost strength.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    8.Goemon Ishikawa							SWGI
    ============================================================================
    Goemon and Okuni - Dance at Shijogawara
    
    You need to defeat the respawned Miscreant units 10 times! Then you will get
    a special item report.
    
    This is easy. Miscreants are slow and easy so you shouldn't have a problem.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    9.Kunoichi								 SWK
    ============================================================================
    Rise of the Takeda - Costly Passage
    
    Overtake the strongholds in all 3 islands within 10 turns! Then you will get
    a special item report.
    
    Boost 3, haste is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! also get an "A" in every mission, you
    will be able to move 3 squares. Another is to have bodyguard's who start you
    off with either haste or boost 3, this will make it easier.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    10.Shingen Takeda							SWST
    ============================================================================
    Rise of the Takeda - Shigen's Pilgrimage
    
    Make a COUNTERCLOCK-WISE passage and capture each Temple, 
    defeat Motochika Chosokabe WITHOUT the temples being overtaken by enemies 
    and you will get a precious item report.
    
    Use rally to boost defenses and you should be Ok if you follow the 
    instructions.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    11.Hanzo Hattori							SWHH							
    ============================================================================
    Enter the Tokugawa-Iga Resistance
    
    defeat Yoshinari Mori, Kazumasu Takigawa,  Ukon Takayama and Noh within 8 turns 
    defeat Kotarou Fuuma who appears afterwards and you will get the 
    precious item report 
    (weapon is located below 1 and right 2 of Noh's initial position)
    
    This easy. Use thunder, fire or rally if it helps you to make it easier.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    12.Yoshimoto Imagawa							SWYI
    ============================================================================
    Strength from Above - Escape from Anegawa
    
    Let Kenshin and Date escape within 20 turns and you will get a precious item
    report.
    
    There is a high risk of either 1 of them being defeated
     so rush to their side
    using boost or haste.Or you could use rally on them so they defeat the officers.
    You have to be quick and fast.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    13.Ranmaru Mori								SWRM
    ============================================================================
    Mitsuhide and Ramaru - Assault on Kyushu
    
    Defeat every enemy general at least once (total of 6) before enemy commander
    shows up and you will get a precious item report.
    
    Once again, you have to be quick. Make use of Boost and haste to reach the
    generals quickly.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    14.Masamune Date							SWMD
    ============================================================================
    Strength from Above - Assault on the North
    
    Activate all 4 Avalanche Charms within 12 turns 
    
    EASY! just keep at a fast pace and follow instructions to the battle
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    15.Kenshin Uesugi							SWKU
    ============================================================================
    Strength from Above - Assault on the East
    
    defeat Ujimasa Hojo and Ujiteru Hojo within 10 turns, defeat Narimasa Nagano 
    who appears afterwards and you will obtain it automatically.
    
    *Yawns* Once again, use Boost or Haste to increase speed and to make it easier
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    16.Mitsuhide Akechi							SWMA
    ============================================================================
    Akechi and Ranmaru - Assault on Sanyo
    
    Force Takakage Kobayakawa to escape within 15 turns and you will get a 
    precious item report.
    
    To make Takakage Kobayakawa escape, you need to overtake all enemy
    strongholds. Remember to use your charms to make things easier.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    17.Noh									 SWN
    ============================================================================
    Mr. and Mrs. Oda - Nobunaga's Flight
    
    Defeat Goemon ishikawa and capture every stronghold! Then defeat Magoichi
    Saika and a precious item report will appear.
    
    I suggest defeating Goemon and then capture the stronghols in a clock-wise
    direction. That is the route i took to get it. Also there is a high chance of
    Nobunaga dying so use rally on him.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ============================================================================
    18.Hideyoshi Hashiba						       SWHHA
    ============================================================================
    Kyushu Campaign
    
    Keep all your allies alive until Yoshihisa Shimazu appears. The weapon appears
    at H7.
    
    Rally is essential for this battle. Use it whenever possible when your allies
    are in danger of being routed.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    =============================================================================
    19.Nobunaga Oda								 NWNO
    =============================================================================
    Northern campaign
    
    Kill either Yukimura Sanada or Kenshin Uesugi with ALL your allies alive.
    
    Rally is important. Follow the same strategy as the above.
