Easy Way To Upgrade 2
Whenever your fighting a general or gate captain, Weaken in any way possible then, charge up your musou bar and unleashed it ALL on him even when he dies, KEEP HITTING him to receive more of an upgrade, Ex. Instead of +1Defense, it becomes+2, instead of +4Attack, its +8Attack etc.
Easy Way To Upgrade Beginning Guy
Play Yellow Turban Rebellion and at the top of the castle, there is Dim sum (Life up+10). Also along the left side of the map near Zhang Liang, there is musou up (Musou up+10). Do this a lot of times to boost those 2 stats up.
When you are playing a 2 player game and you are on the same side, you can increase your musou attack temporarily. First you have to be near the second person. Then you have to charge your musou bar up all the way. Then both players have to press the musou button at the same time and then the 2 characters will do an insane musou attack. (this will work well when your surrounded by enemies).
On the Nanman Campaign, after the elephant cutscene, enemy officers and generals would be riding elephants. One way to take them down is when you are on a horse and next to the elephant, go near the front and knock him off with a left or right strike (Make sure the elephant have your horse shake you off while it charges or you'll lose alot of life). The safer way is to hit off with an arrow form a safe distance (Make sure the elephant is standing still).
The Fastest Way Get Lu Bu
Start out with a Wei Warrior, until you get to "The Battle at Chi Bi" Then prevent the fire attack (Kill Huang Gai)a special item will appear. Get the fire Arrows and beat the level. Equip it and the go to Hu Lao gate. Kill 1000 troops and beat Lu Bu with fire arrows. stay far away or he will kill you. Beat the level and you will have Lu Bu.
Survival Guide Special Item
In the batrle of wu zhang plains under the hard difficulty setting as the shu force, find a place where an intermission sequence starts and you see shooting stars. Note: This may take a while, and may happend when zhang fei dies. A special item message should appeard for the survival guide. This item will have your character attack x2 for thirty second when near death.
On Hu Lao gate level be a Shu officer and head for the Fan Shui gate when you arrive go on top of the gate and go right. If you are in the right spot you will see shingles then jump and quickly tap up. If you did it right you will be on a rooftop with a perfect view of the enemy. If you combine this with the fire arrow hint,you'll get alot of KOs. This may take a litte bit of practice.
Get 4th Weapon Very Easy And Slick
To get your 4th weapon easily and very slick, go to free mode and choose the character that you want to get the weapon with, then with 2nd player, pick somebody very strong (max Lu Bu for example) then start the required level (on hard) and required side. Then do all of the tactics needed to make your weapon appear. The point of the second player as a strong character is simply because he or she can do all of the work. With this strategy, you may get all of the 4th weapons with even new characters that aren't very strong.
Easier To Get 4th Weapons
4th Weapons are only in hard, but all you have to do is complete the task in hard. Once you complete the required task and the special item message shows up you can quit and save then turn it to easy get the weapon and finish of the commander.(before quiting first make sure the item shows up first, check History)
Reinforcements In The Yellow Turban Rebellion
Reinforcements arrive for The Yellow Turban's after 10 minutes into the battle.
Easy characters to start playing as are: Xiahou Dun, Guan Yu, and Zhou Yu or Taishi Ci. Guan Yu is the easiest to get the strongest, because of his 4th weapon.
When you get knocked down or get knocked off a horse, press the block button (L1) right when you hit the ground for a quick flip up recovery. It is the same on a horse just hit L1 right when you come off the saddle to perform this. It helps you to get right back into the action, very quickly!

Never Say Die
If your ever in trouble with a tiny bit of life left adn you cant find any, and a general is just about to take his last shot at you, quickly,pause the game and quit/save, then when your back at the main menu screen, continue. when everything loads up, run your heart out to the nearest gate, if you do this correctly, the general will be on a horse and ride off somewhere else. Go get some life and go back at it.

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need life while playing, these are the two places were you can always find life. The first place is by any gate (guarded by a gate captain). There's always life (in vases)by gates. And the second place is the GUARD CAPTAIN. It's hard to recognize these officers in crowd of enemies while fighting. They are usually accompanied by 4 or 5 guards or they ALWAYS ride those very thin, brown horses and they always give life, usually 100+ or 200+.
Generals Turn Into Robbers
Play mosou mode with Zhang Liao, Jiang Wei and Taishi Ci, Something interesting things will happen in the fourth stage. Zhang Fei will be the leader of the robbers if your are using Zhang Liao, Xu Zhu will be the leader of the robbers if your are using Taishi Ci, Huang Gai will be the leader of the robbers if you are using Jiang wei.
How To Get The Art Of War
In the battle of Hei Fei Castle,join the Wei forces and kill all generals except Sun Quan, then there's a special item discovered, it is in the boat that where Sun Quan is in.
Get Taishi Ci's 4th Weapon
Fight with Taishi Ci at the Attack on Wu Territory on the Allied's side on hard difficulty. Before killing Sun Ce (if he is the last general alive), the special item will appear on the board.
Fourth weapons are usually found at battles where certain and specific generals are important. (ex. Lu Xun is the important general at Yi Ling; Gan Ning and Zhang Liao are the important generals at He Fei; Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei are the important generals at Chang Bang, etc.) Also, when making the attempt to find forth weapons, the game's difficulty setting must be on HARD.
Wu Zhang Plains Secret Items
In order to get the special items at Wu Zhang Plains: On the Wei forces, when too many of your major allied generals are killed by Shu forces, a scenerio will play showing the general that you are playing with say, " Someone else has died" (not all of them say the same thing,though). After that, the SPECIAL ITEM will appear on the board somewhere. And when playing on Shu forces, the information is the same. But this time the SPECIAL ITEM is different. I believe one special item is ATTACK x 2 near death and the other is DEFENSE x 2 near death.
Get Taishi Ci
At the Attack on Wu Territory, follow the orders on the conditions screen. If you notice, it doesn't have Taishi Ci's name as a general to defeat. So to get him, simply ignore him and go fight the other generals. After a while (about 15 min left in the board or so) a scenerio will play showing Taishi Ci surrendering to Sun Ce, making him available to be played with in free and musou modes.
When you are defeating someone, do a combo on them. I had two guards near me. One I just killed and the other one I did a combo on and got life. If you do a long combo (20 or higher) you get a better life or something else.
Beware Of Those Generals!!!
