About the Character Gallery...And other Notes.                           [Sec0]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This guide will NOT provide you with 100% completion in the Character Gallery.
(Found in the System section before you enter Story or Online Mode.) The
Character Gallery includes multiple entries for characters that appear in
multiple series, as well as a few characters that make cameo appearances in
some of the History Missions. In order to get these additional entries, you
will have to complete the appropriate History Missions, and this guide does
NOT cover that. (Although, if you're going to achieve Level 5 friendship with
Dianna Soriel, you'll end up doing this anyway.)

Section 2: How to Make Friends and Influence People.                     [Sec2]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Playable Characters:                                                     [S2P1]
  Unlike in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, where the pilots make friends with each
other, in DW: Gundam 3 the pilots make friends with the player. This means
there is only one friendship board. After pilots are introduced through the
story missions, you must go to the Terminal and read their "hello" message.
This is extremely important, as you cannot earn accord with these pilots, even
if you play beside them in missions, until you have read this message and they
appear on the friendship board under the Records tab. Once the character
appears on the friendship chart, you can start to build accord with them and
increase their friendship level to receive various benefits based on the
individual characters. (Also, unlike DW: Gundam 2, accord never decreases, even
if you shoot the pilot down in missions.)

For Playable Pilots, there are five ways to earn accord with them and raise
their friendship level:

1) Fight alongside them in battle. For every battle you fight on the same side
   as a pilot you gain a small amount of accord. This amount is slightly higher
   if they are active (not shot down and awaiting respawn) when you complete
   the mission.
2) If a pilot calls for help because they are losing a fight with another ace,
   you will get accord if you can get there and finish off the enemy before
   the friendly pilot is shot down.
3) There are special battlefield objectives that will randomly activate in the
   course of missions. Some of these objectives involve assisting other pilots.
   Successful complete one of these to earn some accord.
4) You automatically earn accord with whatever pilot you have set as your
   partner with every mission you undertake together. While you lose the
   opportunity for bonus accord from #'s 2 & 3 since they will not spawn in the
   mission while set to partner, you are at least guaranteed a small amount of
   accord every mission.
5) Play as the character. You gain a small amount of accord for every mission
   you play as a character as well.

Since most (but not all) characters can't be selected as a partner or as a
playable character until they reach level 2 and 3 friendship respectively, you
are limited to methods 1-3 initially. Most pilots have a story mission in which
they are introduced. A good way to get mission time with them is to replay this
mission. A lot of these intro missions also involve you having to "rescue"
them, so this makes these missions ideal for building accord.

Like DW: Gundam 2, there are friendship missions you can perform as well. DW:
Gundam 3 even has friendship missions for each Gundam series.

Special Note for Fa Yuiry:                                              [S2P1a]
  Even though Fa is not actually playable, she is usable as a partner and
  does appear on the battlefield. She therefore gains friendship the same way
  as the playable characters, with the exception that you cannot, of course,
  gain friendship by playing as her.


Level 5 friendship for Playable Characters:                             [S2P1b]
  Unlike levels 2-4, pilots will not enter the level 5 bracket as soon as their
accord is high enough. Once accord is high enough for Level 5 with a specific
character, then it will unlock a special mission under the Relationship
category under the Missions Tab. This is always a high difficulty mission and
is usually restricted to that particular pilot and their primary mobile suit.
(Not always though, Haman's level 5 friendship mission is actually completed
by Banagher Links in his Unicorn Gundam.) Remember, getting the pilot to level
4 does not unlock their Relationship Mission automatically, you still must earn
additional accord to unlock it.

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

Non-Playable Characters                                                  [S2P2]
For non-playable characters, their friendship levels will depend on your
relationship with the playable ones. Some of the Non-playables want you to make
friends with the characters from their respective series, others prefer you to
make friends with the pilots from the story chapters they are associated with.
Either way, making steady progress with your playable pilots will bring these
friendships along eventually as a matter of course. Unlike the playables,
who's advancement in friendship is reported at the end of missions,
non-playables will send you a message at each level of advancement in the
Terminal. They will not advance to the next level until you have read this
message.

There are two characters, Astonaige Medoz and Dianna Soriel, who have a
special means of gaining friendship.
1) Astonaige: Raise the Tech level of the Mobile Suit Lab by developing and
   upgrading mobile suits. Friendship starts at Tech Level 2 and reaches Level
   5 at Tech Level 10.
2) Dianna: Complete History missions to make friends with Dianna. Her Level 1
   friendship message will appear in the Terminal after you complete the
   Menace of Zeon History Mission plus any other History Mission. Level 5
   friendship is achieved when all History Missions are complete.

Section 3: FAQ                                                           [Sec3]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How do I unlock the various History Missions?

A: The History Missions have various unlock conditions just to make them show
   up in the mission list. Some of them require certain chapters to be
   complete, others seem to require that all of the History Missions from
   one or more other series are complete, and some need Terminal events. All
   seem to require a certain level of friendship with the pilots involved in
   the mission to play it once it's been unlocked. (Usually L1 to 4, but in
   some cases L5 friendship is needed.) These requirements are hard to predict,
   and don't seem to follow any set logic.

   In other words, it's complicated enough to require its own guide.
   Fortunately I finaly sat down and wrote one, and as it happens it's posted
   right here on GameFAQs!

Q: Can you tell me how to unlock a specific set of History Missions then?

A: No, not really. All I can really advise you to do is to complete all the
   Story Missions in all of the various chapters, to make Level 5 friends
   with everyone, and to clear the various History Missions ASAP after they
   unlock. This should get you through all of them eventually.

Q: Do you have any tips on which Pilots/MS are best?

A: No, so don't bother asking; you'll be ignored. If you want information on
   Pilot or MS stats and abilities, consult an appropriate guide that someone
   else has made.

Q: Can you tell me how to unlock skills, movies, or BMG's?

A: No. The only advice I'm going to give you is to complete all missions, and
   make level 5 friends out of everybody. Succeed in this, and the rest should
   come as a matter of course. If you're having trouble with completing the
   missions, consult a walkthrough. You'll notice I don't have a full
   blown walkthrough, and I can tell you I'm NOT going to, so don't bother
   bugging me about this, you'll be ignored.

Q: What about The Black Tri-Stars, and Yazan's wingmen? You don't mention them
   in this guide, but they show up as pilots in missions. Why is that?

A: They're not in this guide because you can't play as them, ypu cant use them
   as Operators or Partners, and you can't make friends with them.

Q: Are they part of the Character Gallery then?

A: Yes. I'm not 100% sure how to unlock them there, but I think it's through
   viewing certain Terminal messages sent by M'Quve & Yazan once they hit level
   3 friendship and become playable.

Q: I completed the Those Who Doubt/Those Who Pass By Chapter and the
   For Victory/For Peace Chapter did not unlock. Why is that?

A: The pilot groups in the two chapters (Those Who Doubt & Those Who Pass BY)
   are split up at the end of their chapters. Part of the characters from
   each group will advance to For Peace, and part will go to For Victory. As
   a result, both chapters have TWO final missions, one of which advances some
   of the pilots to For Peace, and the other that advances the rest to For
   Victory. Each mission is restricted to only the pilots that go to the
   respective chapter it unlocks. The alternate mission will not appear in the
   Mission Queue for the chapter until you select one of the pilots for play
   that can participate in it. Just find a pilot that is still showing the
   Those Who Doubt/Those Who Pass By Chapter heading on the Player Selection
   Screen when the others advance to For Victory/For Peace. If you can't find
   one, then use this guide to unlock more characters from that chapter for
   play until you do.

Q: Since we're discussing unlocking chapters, can you tell us how to unlock the
   For Reform Chapter?

A: Complete both the For Victory and For Peace chapters.
