<CHAPTER 2>

run (press A when you hit the water and continue hitting A) and open up the 
chest.

- Life of the Gods 2 - Hayabusa Village -
After entering Hayabusa Village, look to the right and you'll see three statues 
with one of them missing its head. Defeat the enemies and head down the hill to

the statue to receive a Life of the Gods.

- Lives of the Thousand Gods 2 - Tairon; near Clock Tower Plaza -
After grabbing the above item, shimmy back over and kill the two soldiers 
firing at you with your bow. Now, see the blue lines on the right wall? You can

V. Weapons - WPN
----------------
This section lists every weapon in the game along with upgrade prices, move 
lists, and where each weapon is found. Please read below for what everything 
means on the move list.

Acquired: Easy enough, tells you where you get this weapon.
Level 1/2/3/etc.: This tells you how much Yellow essence is required to upgrade 
the weapon to whatever level is listed next to the upgrade amount. The prices 
can change throughout the different difficulties.

If a move says (Throw) by it, then the last button press activates an attack 
which makes you invincible during the attack frames and cannot be interrupted 
by anything once it begins. Usually a Scroll is required for this move to be 
usable.

If a move says (Counter) by it, then pressing the buttons right when the enemy 
hits your guard activates an attack where you perform a different move 
depending on the weapon and what button you pressed. This only works if the 
move does not break your guard and you have the Counter Attack Scroll.

If a button press says (6+X) then you need to press the control stick towards 
the enemy while tapping X. 

If a button press says Hold+Y, then you need to hold down that button until the 
attack animation begins. However, if the move says Essence or Essence MAX next 
to it, you need to continue to hold down the button until either:
- blue lines start coming off of Ryu (Essence)
- orange and red lines start coming off of Ryu (Essence MAX)

If at the end of the move, it says Lv2, Lv3, Lv4, or Scroll, then you must have 
upgraded the weapon to the correct level before that attack is available. You 
need a certain Scroll to activate some moves as well.

+++++m. Projectile Weapons+++++
There are seven different projectile weapons in the game. All of them are 
used with the B button. For prices, they are listed from Ninja Dog to Master 
Ninja. If you're looking for Hard mode prices, count to the third number from 
the left.

- Shuriken
- Incendiary Shuirken
- Windmill Shuriken
- Smoke Bombs
- Bow/Strongbow
- Explosive Arrows
- APFSDS Cores


Shuriken
A simple cross-shaped throwing star.
Location: begin game with them
Shuriken are the weakest projectile weapon you can use. On the plus side, you 
have an infinite amount (ninja magic, of course) so you don't have to worry 
about running out. You can throw up to 4 in a short amount of time by mashing 
B. When you run and press B, Ryu dives forward and throws shuriken. A lot of 
enemies are immune to these, and there are much better alternatives. These 
can help you stay in the air longer though by mashing B.

Incendiary Shuriken
A shuriken with a small timer-detonated explosive at the tip.
Location: Second floor of Archives in Monastery; inside a glass case
Incendiary Shuriken are Kunai with small explosives on the end. They explode 
after a couple of seconds once they hit something, damaging the enemy it hit 
and the surrounding enemies. Jumping off a wall and mashing B lets you throw 
two very quickly. You can only throw one at a time on the ground though.

Windmill Shuriken
A giant shuriken with four folding blades. When thrown, it returns to the 
owner like a boomerang.
Location: Alley near Han's Bar on Pleasure Street (Hard mode not included)
The Windmill Shuriken is a giant shuriken with four folding blades. It rests 
on Ryu's right arm when not in use. It has pretty good range and can hit 
multiple enemies if they are lined up correctly. Normally, it is found near 
Han's Bar in an alley (Hard mode is an exception). After you find out you 
need a ticket, turn around and a Kunai will fly into a wall near by. Grab it 
and you should see blue lines on the walls in the alley. Get a good running 
start and wall run on the blue lines. Jump from wall to wall, and make sure 
to air yourself with the Dragon Sword at the end by pressing X if you don't 
think you'll make it. The Windmill Shuriken is located here, along with a 
silver X that restores your health and Ninpo when you interact with it. In 
Hard mode, you get the Windmill Shuriken by trading in 15 Golden Scarabs to 
Muramasa. A fun combo with the Dragon Sword is XYXXXB. It brings the enemy 
into the air and then chops off their heads while still in the air. This is 
also possible with the level 3 Lunar (6+Y,YXB). Try it out!

Smoke Bombs
When used, this item explodes, temporarily blinding all enemies in the 
immediate area.
Location: On the other side of a valley after gaining Ninpo 
Smoke Bombs are small bombs that release a cloud of smoke where you hit B. 
Enemies will then target the smoke and not you, thus allowing you to get in 
some free hits if possible. You get these in a chest in Chapter 2 after wall 
running across a small valley. 

Bow
A typical bow. As a projectile weapon that makes no sound, it has advantages 
over firearms.
Location: Hayabusa Village, in the two story warehouse
The Bow is acquired in Chapter 2. It fires arrows at enemies and is affected 
by gravity. If something's far away, aim high. After you find Ayane in 
Hayabusa Village, she gives you the Bow and five arrows for your use. Don't 
shoot her though. That's mean. >_<

Strongbow
A composite bow made in Vigoor in medieval times. It cannot be pulled by 
people of average strength.
Location: Behind the Skull Door near the Military Gate
This is found in Chapter 8 near the Military Gate in the Skull Door. This has 
very fast arrow flight and is not affected by the forces of gravity (that 
means no arc; whatever you aim at, you'll probably hit, unless you suck at 
aiming). Open the door and there are two small ledges. Wall run and jump to 
the first one, then wall run and jump to the second one. Run down the hallway 
and trade in your old Bow for the Strongbow. To use this weapon, hold down B 
and release it. For first person mode, hold B and move the left thumbstick. 

Explosive Arrows
Arrows with explosive tips. Very destructive.
Location: Right next to the door leading inside the Warehouse
These are arrows with small explosives attached at the point. These do large 
damage and create a small explosion on whatever they hit. You find these in 
Chapter 9.

APFSDS Cores
The core section of tank shells. Made from a heavy tungsten material, they 
have superb penetration capability.
Location: Inside the warehouse on the second floor
These are tungsten coated arrows. They are essentially armor piercing arrows. 
These do a good amount of damage as well. To find them, after the small laser 
helicopters appear, keep running down the walkway and at the end near the 
stairs are the AFPSDS Cores inside a light tan crate.

VI. Contacting Me - CON
-----------------------
So you found something wrong with the FAQ; typo that's been bugging you, 
missing a location, have the wrong buttons for an attack, got the wrong 
upgrade price, that sort of thing. Anyway, if you need to get a hold of me, 
e-mail me at:

schererenator(at)gmail(dot)com

And replace (at) with @ and (dot) with ".", for all you non-smart people out 
there.

I will not read the following e-mails:

- asking about the main game. This is for ITEMS, not a walkthrough.
- asking how to beat bosses. Again, items, not walkthrough.
- hate mail. It's a waste of my time and your time. Just don't.
- e-mails with little/no grammar or spelling whatsoever. I don't want to take 
the time to read an e-mail that looks like this:

ur faq is awesom can u pleaz tel me how 2 find a scrab kthanx bai

NO. JUST NO. Never will I even glance at these. These kind of e-mails go 
straight into the trash.

If you DO send me an e-mail, make sure the subject says "GameFAQs" somewhere 
in it. If I don't reply within a couple of days, don't resend it or freak 
out. I'm probably at school or doing something else. Don't worry though; I 
generally respond to every e-mail I get.

VII. Outro
