Dynasty Warriors 2 Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Easier Way To Get Lu Bu Than In FAQ

In Hu Lao Gate go way to the right side of the map and go down. Kill ONLY the guys that you have to so you can open the gates. When you get to Hu Lao gate itself, which is the one next to Dong Zhuo, kill the guy next to it. Go into the hallway in it and stay just in the hallway and kill everyone and wait for more. They will keep coming no matter what unless you kill the gate captains. You should have enough time to do it if you follow the the directions carefully. I found this out from the demo disc from PSM Magazine and have done it myself so it should work. An even easier way is with the all characters code (Square, R1, Square, R2, Square, R2, Square, R1).

Way To Build Levels And Experience

An easy way to build levels, experience, and strength is to kepp playing free mode. If you have a memory card, keep saving your games in free mode once you finish a level so your fav character will be stronger in musou mode than normal. This is a good way to help you beat the game. I built up Ma Chao so well that once i started playing musou mode, it only took me an hour to beat the game.

Horses

Don't use horses when you are trying to get experience. When you run over people with a horse you don't get any points at the end for killing them. Horses are good to travel from place to place. When you find one ride to the next area of enemies, get off and kill them. Get back on he horse and repeat. Doing this earns you a lot more points.

Earn Your Characters Up Easy

If you play a level in Free Mode that you can beat your character will become more powerful. The Hu Lao Gate is a great place to earn stuff.

Easy Way to Beat the Hu Lao Gate

On character select pick DianWei and skip all the people until you get to a boss that has a red name over his head and kill 'em.Then when you come up to HuaXiong kill him and go inside the gate and skip all the people until you get to LuRu and defeat him and go inside the gate that he was blocking and you will see DongZhou he will be in red and run up the stairs(Hu Lao Gate stairs)and kill all the bow people and use your bow and aim at DongZhou from a top the Hu Lao Gate and keep on firing until DongZhou is dead and when he is he will say "NO I cannot die now" and you beat the level also now.
