Hello there everyone. This guide is rather straightforward. It's the requirements listed, in-game, for getting each final weapon. I've compiled it all in a list for easier referencing. Remember that the difficult must be on at least Hard. Also, I'm missing the details of a few weapons because I unlocked them by accident just while playing through the story mode. So if you haven't, please feel free to list it's requirements so that everyone can benefit from it better.

As soon as you get the missing weapons up there, this will be perfect sticky material.

Great job!
I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.

This would be great with some side notes. As it stands the information is just as easily googled.

Something like: "For Yinpings weapon, it's easier if you rush down to the part of the map where the wu officers spawn, as soon as you kill the wei officers."

Just little extra hints would be awesome.

I agree. As of right now, all this info + the missing ones are available on the wiki. If you make it more of a walkthrough, it'd be more helpful.

I'd appreciate help. I'm not looking to make my own FAQ, but I figured this would be a commonly looked into topic and one that I could contribute to. Like the topic title says, this is version 1.0.
