Hint: Jiang Wei: Level 10 weapon:
Play the Battle of Tian Shui on Musou mode. To unlock this area, play the Shu Musou mode and skip to the Battle of Chi Bi on Act 3; do not play the battle of Bo Wan Po. Allow the enemy to spoil all of your ploys (Pang Tong's ploy, Zhuge Liang's calling of the wind and Huang Gai's fire attack). After all of your ploys fail, finish the battle of Chi Bi and play through the rest of the Musou mode normally. The Battle of Tian Shui will appear before the final act. When the Battle of Tian Shui begins, run quickly to the right side of Ji Castle. Kill the Guard Captain there to open the gate. Step inside to activate an enemy ambush. Then, run back around to the southern gate on Ji Castle. Kill the Guard Captain there. Once again, run inside to activate an enemy ambush. Run inside and kill Cao Ren and his two Sub-Generals. You have to do this before Cao Ren decides to charge out and attack Zhuge Liang. At this point, it would be a good idea to eliminate all enemy troops that are not inside Tian Shui Castle, including all Officers and Gate Captains. Zhuge Liang gets in trouble very easily on this map, and the enemy morale stays high throughout. Once that is done, kill the Guard Captain on the left side of Tian Shui Castle to open the gates. Just like in Ji Castle, run in to activate an enemy ambush. Then, move back out and around to the southern gate. Kill the Guard Captain there. Run inside to activate one more ambush. Run in and kill Yin Shang and Liang Xu. You then recieve Jiang Wei's level 10 weapon, Blink. Note: This map only gives you thirty minutes to finish; you must act quickly.

Hint: Xia Pi: Defeating Lu Bu:
During the course of the game, begin running south along the outside of the castle. You will run into Lu Bu's officer, who will challenge you to a duel. Accept or deny; either way, he is not difficult to defeat as long as you assure that you get the first hit. Start by pressing the Analog-stick Up, then prepare to use either a normal attack, or a Triangle attack. Continue to hit him and follow his movements as you hit him. Try not to let up on him for any longer than a second. After you defeat him, continue moving around the map, killing all the Generals. Once you are at the top left section of the map and have defeated the Generals around the screen, you will see a sequence that reveals that the water level is playing havoc on the force's advances. Note: If you play Cao Cao while doing this adventure, you have to assure that he is near the large bolder next to the river on the north end of the stream. You will have to wait until one of the officers says "Use the boulders to block the water", then walk to the boulder. Cao Cao will leap onto it and demand that the forces charge in. From there, either go the long way, and race towards the southeastern section of the map (resembles a donut on the map), or cut through the castle to get there. When you arrive, defeat the small group of men, then run across the exposed section of land to the Red Hare horse. After you "rescue" the Red Hare, race into the castle and join your other officers. Do not go directly to Lu Bu. Pass the massive clump of men that he is pounding on, and head to his sister, Diao Chan. For Cao Cao, she is an easy defeat. Beat her up and let her sequence of running off injured play out. After that, you will be warned that Lu Bu is angry over her defeat. Shortly after that, the General that was near her gives up because he thinks Lu Bu has no "peace" on his mind, and that all he sees is the battlefield. The sequence will play out, and he will tell Cao Cao to "Bind me, I am no longer needed here". Make sure your life meter is full and go after Lu Bu. Be careful, and let your other Generals have a piece of him as well. Through the massive horde of men, keep hitting Lu Bu from behind if possible. If you meter begins to show red, run. Do not stop; just keep running. Chances are he is directly behind you, and he can move. Go to the other side of the river that runs through the castle. Defeat the small enemies and search for bottles and boxes. They may be difficult to find, but they are there. Get a full meter and return. Repeat the same thing. Attack him from behind if possible. When the meter gets red, run. Make sure you leave jars and boxes at the strongholds so you can collect them. The battle will continue endlessly until he has no men left, and has no choice but to go by himself and secure the strongholds outside of the castle. You have lots of time. Repeat this and you will eventually get him. However, he is not dead yet.

Blacks42.

This weapon can be obtained in the Siege of Fan Castle on the Wu side. Note: If you try to get Zhou Yu's level 10 weapon without taking care of Wu's siege weapons, Lu Meng will come forward and get killed by Cao Ren's all out charge. However, if you have an already powered up Lu Meng, choose him as player two and equip him with a Shadow Saddle, level 15 Horned Helm, Tiger Amulet, Tortoise Amulet, and Elixir. You need two good bodyguard teams, one for each player. Make them wait at Lu Meng's camp entrance. Play fast, as you have ten minutes to kill the generals and Zhen Ji's entire side. While doing this, Wei must have destroyed all your siege weapons and charged. After you clear Zhen Ji's area, make Zhou Yu wait there until the Supply Team Captain comes up. Kill him, and once you get the level 10 weapon message, switch to Lu Meng and go for Cao Ren. Cao Ren is weak against mount attacks. Keep moving and bounding him until he dies.
Nick Dart.

Instead of building up Lu Meng to keep him alive during Fan Castle, use this trick to keep him alive manually. First, it is obvious that you need Zhou Yu's level 9 weapon and have him at maximum rank, but, you can can do this trick without touching Lu Meng before (meaning having completely default stats). First, have Zhou Yu as player one, then press Start on controller two and choose Lu Meng for the second player. He should be equipped with any Peacock or Tortoise items, and a Shadow Harness is recomended. At the begining of the level, wait for Cao Ren to charge, then make Lu Meng go next to the bridge on the northern river (by the pots and boxes). Have him wait there and switch to Zhou Yu. Have Zhou Yu fend off troops for awhile, untill the Wei forces start to shift northward (towards Meng). Have Meng ride down to Fan Castle's eastern bridge. The troops should be gone from that bridge by now. With Lu Meng safe once again, Zhou Yu should be free to kill the Supply Captain and acquire the Ancients Sword. Now, it is time to slaughter Cao Ren.

Kingry123.

Hint: Orb recommendations:
Justin Jtz.

Shu: Lightning Orb because of their long ranged weapon that will not steal the experience.
Wu: Fire Orb Because of their costumes and beam that comes appears from their hand when you press Triangle on some character.
Wei: Vorpal Orb because of their short ranged weapon.
Lu Bu: Lightning or Fire Orb because of their strong damage attack.
Dong Zhou: Any Orb because Dong Zhou is a very slow player.
Yuan Shao: Wind Orb to gain more experience for them and strong wind effect.
Nanman: Poison Orb when playing Nanman campaign on Nanman side so you can bring poison from the river to them.
Yellow Turban: Any Orb.

Hint: Electric Orbs:
Electric Orbs are one of the worst Orbs. They give a lot of damage, but there is a 75% chance that the Orb will steal the points that the player gives you (weapon and regular), if the last attack was a T attack that is affected by an Orb.

Destroy the lone pot near the buildings at the left entrance (of the middle part, not the castle) to get +10 Musou. You should also get at least 3,500 weapon experience, which levels you up very fast. As you do this more often, you should be able to complete the level within eight to twelve minutes, depending on who you play as.
Brian.

Hint: Battle Of Hu Lao Gate:
Play as any character in the Allies (in Musou mode, anyone of Wei, Wu, Shu, or Yuan Shao's forces). Quickly defeat the marked general and the general under him (for example, in Wei, the marked general is Li Ru, and Xu Rong is under him) to be able to open the gate blocking you from the rest of the battlefield. Take the marked officer's horse out to the battlefield. An intermission sequence will start, showing a ram rolling and hitting Hu Lao Gate. Game play will resume and Yuan Shao will say, "Protect the ram while it heads for Hu Lao Gate". Quickly get to the gate. There will be a small space on either side of the ram between the gate's sides. Park your horse in the one on the left. Then, get off and try to defeat as many soldiers as possible. At a certain point, start battling near your horse (possibly before, or when an intermission sequence shows the gate breaking apart). Quickly get on your horse and ride through the gate. Continue charging forward until you pass the point Lu Bu starts and the wooden fences are behind him. Then, take a right and take your horse out of the fenced area through the right side. Proceed going around it. Note: Besides challenging you to a duel, Lu Bu will completely ignore you unless you get too close. Do not try to engage in battle with Lu Bu. It is basically impossible defeat beat him in a duel, and you need more allied officers and forces working with you to defeat him in battle. When you get around it, go directly towards the gate where Diao Chan will be waiting. Defeat her, and the gates will open. Just as you get through the gates, Dong Zhuo will say that he has no use for the city anymore and to burn it down. An intermission sequence appears, showing enemy soldiers setting fire to the buildings. Start making your way towards Dong Zhuo, who will be in the area past the open gate on the right, when you enter the city. Try defeating some of the other generals there before you go after Dong Zhuo. Then, take down the officer under him and he will call to retreat. You should be able to catch up to him. His escape route involves leaving his section of the city and proceeding into another section to the left. Quickly defeat him. Note: You do not have to defeat him; you will still have won. However if you defeat him, your weapon gets more experience.
Reetom Bera.

Hint: Battle Of Hu Lao Gate: Mountain climbing:

Go to Zhuge Liang's castle, but do not go inside. Instead take a right go until you are past the building. Then, go left. There should be a lot of hay in those sticks. Go to the end of all of them. There should be a wooden box there. Break it open. There will be a Get Item. Then, finish the level. Note: It is always an Orb under the hard difficulty setting.

Hint: Battle Of Wu Zhang Plains level: Items:
To get the best items get a good character that is fast at running and attacking. Max out his defense and attack, then go to the Wu Zhang Plains level on the Wei side under the hard difficulty setting. There are a few items in crates. Their locations are as follows: top left near gate, middle path, top middle where Cao Cao appears, and on the left-hand side of the Shu fort. Look for single crates. The rest of the items appear with a supply team (group of wooden oxen on wheels that start around Ma Chao's original position heading down the south path towards the bottom left gate). Defeat Jiang Wei and they should appear, but you have to be fast. Note: Have Luck equipped. You should have Seven Star Sash at least level 14 and Hex Mark. You do not have to be on horseback to activate Luck.
Damian.

Hint: Battle Of Xia Pi:
In the Battle Of Xia Pi, your Wei Forces are on the opposite side of the same castle that they were defending during the Yellow Turban Menace. Quickly go south to a small encampment of buildings just west of the southwest corner of the castle, and just north of the river. Wait for a short while and Zhang Liao will appear (he will be against you). Try to defeat him from his horse before he can challenge you to a duel. Getting his horse is crucial. If you defeat him in a duel which he challenged you to on his horse, defeating him will make the horse disappear. If you fail to defeat him from his horse before he challenges you, press Start to decline his duel when he challenges you. Defeat him in battle, then quickly try to get on his horse. Ride north around the northwest corner of the building, past the enemy stronghold at the top, and go to the bridge crossing the northern stream. Soon Lu Bu will say, "The enemy outnumbers us vastly". Just after he says that, the north gates will open and not only will Lu Bu charge out, but so will an enemy carriage. Dodge Lu Bu and destroy the carriage. Do not allow it to escape or your battle will be much harder. Once the carriage is destroyed, Lu Bu will say, "Damn! We will have to retreat". However, he does not retreat and continues fighting. Dodge around him again and try to just enter the castle. An intermission sequence will show the stream running through the castle, then an island in the middle with Lu Bu's horse, Red Hare, and a pot on it. Once this is done, quickly exit the castle. Dodge Lu Bu (setting your guards on attack and letting them distract Lu Bu is recommended) and cross the bridge of the northern stream again. Guo Jia, your ally, will meanwhile say that there is a stream running through the castle that will substantially limit your movements. Go to the big boulder between the bridge and the north stronghold and stand near it. Note: You could go to the north stronghold and take out the gate captain, but be sure to get close to the boulder once done. Also, destroy the pots to regain any lost health. Soon Guo Jia will tell you to use boulders to dam the stream. Then a battle note will state that the Rockslide preparations are complete. Another intermission sequence shows your character jumping on top of the rocks and saying that the water should recede now, attack. Immediately take your horse and ride south around the west side of the castle. Go to the south part of the stream and cross it over a bridge. Then, go to the southwest corner and take out Hou Cheng (or let him surrender and withdraw). Then scan by the river in the southwest corner and you will find another group of five enemies under Lu Bu, guarding a land bridge leading to the island in the middle of the stream. Take out the men, then cross the land bridge. Break the pot, as it has a Musou Up +10 upgrade. Then, mount and capture Red Hare. Note: As you do these actions you may notice that your overall morale expands to a very high extent. During this time, a lot of the generals are withdrawing. Quickly go around the south and east side of the castle. Sneak around Lu Bu again (you could also try to inflict damage to him) and enter the castle through the north side. Then, keep to the building's right by the stream running through the castle. There will be a large alleyway leading to stairs into the water. Go into the stream. Notice that before damming the stream, the water would have dragged you to the south side of the castle, but not now. Go north and exit the river to the west. You are now at the northwest part of the castle. Meanwhile, more of your allies will be starting to advance on Lu Bu himself. As you exit the river inside the castle, there will be enemies on the north side. Ignore the enemies. An intermission sequence will soon appear, showing Chen Gong sadly saying how Lu Bu only sees the battlefield. Then, Chen Gong will surrender to you. When the sequence is over, continue around the buildings and move south along the west wall of the castle. Lu Bu will try to retreat for real this time, along with Diao Chan. If you feel confident enough, and if your health is high, defeat Diao Chan instead of letting her escape. This will anger Lu Bu and he will restart fighting again. Meet him this time and attack. As the others attack, try to get behind him and attack him. He will usually be blocking in front. Note: If no other ally officer is trying to fight him as well, do not go near him. When you succeed in killing Lu Bu, you will have won the battle.

Hint: Battle Of Xu Chang level: Kills:
Play as the Wu or Shu side. After every General is killed on your side, Sun Jian will struggle and will soon only have one or no guards. After Xu Zhu appears, he will bring Cao Cao srtonghold. It will be non-stop; advance slowly and protect Sun Jian while doing so. You will get about 800 to 1000 kills. If you do this and kill lots of Generals, 12,000 points will be given to you after the battle. This also works with Cheng Du on Wu or Wei side, where the non-stop stronghold is in Luo Castle (top where Ma Su is located), and in Jian Ye (bottom of map where Sun Jian is found).
Chris Sofjan.

Hint: Battle Of Ye Ling level: Easy completion:
Play as Xiao Qiao and equip the Red Hair Harness. When you enter the Stone Sentinel Maze, after the figures start to move up and down you can ride over them. When one starts to rise, move directly towards it. When it is about a quarter up, you should run right up and over it. This makes it possible to enter the Bai Di Castle from the maze. If this does not work, try to ride up different parts, such as the sides.

Hint: Battle Of Yi Ling level: Get Meng Huo and Zhu Rong as reinforcements for Shu:

Hint: Guan Yu's Escape level for Shu:
In Act 1 of Yellow Turban Menace, do the Fortress and Rebellion levels for the Yellow Turban. Then in Act 2 at Shi Shui, first let Hua Xiong come out of the gates.

Alex Peacher.

Use a character whose first charge is shooting out elemental orbs (for example, Zhuge Liang, Jiang Wei, Pang Tong, Cao Cao, Sima Yi, Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Lu Meng, and Da Qiao). Then, get their fourth weapons and equip a Blast Orb (level 2 or above recommended). When you get in a duel with Lu Bu, keep tapping Triangle and his life will slowly drain to nothing. Note: this method will let you win any duel.

Chris Sofjan.

Hint: The Two Qiaos level: Easy completion:
After rescuing Xiao Qiao, quickly rescue Da Qiao. Then, meet up with Sun Ce. Once all three are following you, go south. However, go over to the east side of the map, through the gate. When Dong Zhuo's troops arrive, they will hunt for you. If you try to meet them down the center, you will lose, as you will be overwhelmed by their sheer numbers. You might survive, but odds are that you will be defeated. Going to either side causes them to split up, making it easier for you to survive. You will not have to deal with five to officers, their sub-officers (if any), and their troops. A fully decked general is recommended. Equipment should include: Red Hare Saddle (to move quickly), Charge Bracer, Peacock Urn, Tiger Amulet, and Vorpal Orb.
Alan Parson.

Hint: The Two Qiaos level: Fighting Dong Zhuo's Army:
If you want to fight Dong Zhuo's entire army but have problems with the Qiaos dying, get a second player (or control player two by yourself). Have player two collect both Qiaos, and then have player one attack some of Niou Fu's troops so that they will stop following player two. Let player one be found before Dong Zhuo's army splits, then seal a gate in a far-off corner with player two. Wait there and fight the army using player one. The Qiaos will be safe because everyone will be following player one.

Gan Ning and Su Fei will get on the burning ship. The ship will move and hit the other ship, causing a fire. Gan Ning and Su Fei will appear. Gan Ning should be very weak by now.
Alex Peacher.

Hint: Xu Chang level for Wu side:
Play in Musou mode under the Wu side. You may play as any character. Play all levels in any way desired. When you get to Act 3, play The Battle of Chi Bi level.

Hint: Easy stats and experience:
If you have a strong character capable of completing levels with a difficulty rating of about six or more and you need upgrading, go to the Mt. Ding Jun level. Fight for the Shu side. Once in the level, fight your way towards Xiahou Yuan and Zhang He. If you defeat Xiahou Yuan, he will give you +4 attack and 1228 weapon experience points. Zhang He will give you +4 defense and a little less experience points. If your character is not strong enough to battle at Mt.Ding Jun, select the Battle of Guan Du level and fight for Wei. There are many officers and Zhang He, Liu Bei, and Zhang Fei all drop +2 power-ups.
Neek Sody.

Go to the Unification Of Jiang Dong level in the Wu Territory under the medium difficulty setting. All generals and their officers give a minimum of +2 to attack/defence, and the rest give +4. The difficulty for the level is only rated for 4 on medium difficulty. Weapon experience is not very high, however, and you will only acquire about 3000 weapon experience points (more if you juggle the Named Ones).
Bal'al.

The Battle of Jian Ye is the best level for weapon experience, and there are some good power-ups there as well. The four fake Sun Jians will all give over 1,000 experience each, as well as the real one. Then, Taishi Ci, Zhou Tai, Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun Shang Xiang will give you a lot more.
munchies.

Most of the power-ups dropped by Generals in the game are Attack ups. Your attack will reach maximum before your defense does. To raise your defense faster, play the Campaign Against Sun Jian level as any force. Many Generals there will give you Defense ups.

Go to the Hu Lao Gate under the hard difficulty setting and kill all generals. You will get over 5,000 experience points.
Damian.

Go to the Battle Of Hu Lao Gate level as any character (at least Class 10 and weapon level 5). Destroy all generals except Lu Bu (just evade him) and run up sides of gate. Collect the Musou +10 and the Health +10. Many generals in Hu Lao gate have at least +2 items. Note: Do not knock Lu Bu off his horse because it will be easier for him to attack you; just run and stay away from his slash. He cannot go up the stairs of Hu Lao Gate on his horse.
Kylez82.

With any character with a level 5 weapon or above, go to Lu Bu's Revolt on Dong Zhou's side under the hard difficulty setting in free mode. When you start, go to the room west of Gao Shun. Go south and find the pot in the back corner. Get the Life Up +10 from it, then kill Gao Shun to get an Attack Up +4. Go north from there and kill Zhang Liao to get an Attack Up +8. Go west to the room where Chen Gong is found. Go south and break the pot to get a Musou Up +10. Kill Chen Gong to recieve a Defense Up +8. Then, kill Lu Bu. Repeat this level many times. The Attack for the character you are using will fill up first, and Life and Musou should be close together. Defense will fill the slowest.
steve.

Hint: Easy win:
Jump up and press Triangle. Your character will do a slamming stab attack into the ground. This is quite effective, but on the way down your character is defenseless. The enemy will often attack you. However, if you hold Square on the way down, most times you will not get hit.
Luke.

When fighting with a lot of enemies around you, sometimes the game slows down. If you enter the power struggle thing (where you attack repeatedly) while the game is slowing down, you will win easier because everything else is slow while you are at normal speed.
Shawn O'Grady.

Use the following trick for an instant death of any enemy that is not an officer. Equip the Vorpal Orb at a high level so you do not really need a Tiger Amulet.
Wfo870.

Hint: Easy win in two player mode:
If you are having trouble defeating a general, have one player use his surprise attack (R3). When the enemy unblocks, and pulls back, strike. This is also useful when defeating Lu Bu or any other general.
Stuwy and Jared Kingry.

Hint: Musou modes:
In order to unlock the Naman Musou mode, you must unlock the character Meng Huo. To do so, during a Musou mode with either the Shu or Wu Kingdom, defeat Meng Huo in a duel when he challenges you. After that Musou mode, you will unlock him. After have completed the Shu, Wei, Wu, Lu Bu, Yuan Shao and Naman Musou modes, the Yellow Turban Musou mode will be unlocked. To unlock the Yuan Shao and Lu Bu Musou mode, complete the Shu, Wu and Wei Musou mode once.
Dickson Tin.

Hint: Extra spin attack:
When an officer's Musou bar is full, press Triangle + Circle. He will do six spins instead of three.

Hint: Defeating officers:
Grow your Musou, then use your jumping charge attack. When you land, use your musou immediatly to do double damage on any opponent. If you have a high level character, this will work well on any officer. You can usually kill them in two or three hits.
Osprey.

Hint: Easy weapon experience:
Play the Jian Ye level on the Nanman side under the easy difficulty setting. This requires a level 15 Tiger Amulet and a Red Hare Saddle. Play normally, killing the four fake Sun Jians, then kill sub-generals in the following order: Taichi Ci, Cheng Pu, Zhou Tai, Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun Shang Xiang. Any unpowered-up character will instantly have there level 5 weapon and some ranks up. Do this four times and you will have the level 9 weapon and rank 1 or 3 at least.
Nick Dart.

First, get Guan Yu's Escape for Cao Cao's forces (Wei). Access this by selecting the Yellow Turban Rebellion first in Act 1. Then in Act 2, clear both stages. After the Battle of Guan Du in Act 3, it will be Wei Tales, Guan Yu's Escape. Now that you have Guan Yu's Excape, set it to the easy difficulty setting. Equip a saddle of any kind, if available, and sprint up to Guan Yu. Try and isolate and defeat him. He will give you 848 weapons points under the easy difficulty setting after he is defeated. If you hit him with a Charge attack, you will receive 32 weapons points under the easy difficulty setting. Combo him five times at least, and you will unlock the level 2 weapon for any character in under five minutes. Be careful, as Guan Yu has three times his normal stats on this level.
Douglas S.M. Lum.

Play the Yellow Turban Rebellion on Zhang Jiao's side. Defeat every officer and sub officer. By doing this under the easy difficulty setting, you will leave the stage with over 12,000 weapon experience.
killakid98.

Play the Battle Of Jian Ye level as the Shu side in free mode. Choose the character for which you want to maximize his or her power. It is best to have at least the level 7 weapon. Quickly, eliminate Sun Jian at the bottom of the map. If you want to boost your weapon experience first, kill one illusion of Sun Jian. After you kill the real Sun Jian with the static around his body, you will get about 2,028 weapon experience and an +8 attack in normal mode or 1,016 weapon experience and a +4 in easy mode. Sun Ce will now take command. Kill him to get another 2,000 weapon experience and +8 attack. If your health is low, kill SunSan Xiang or one of the elite guards to get an All Recover boost. Sun Quan will now take command. Kill him to get 2,000 weapon experience and +8 defense. Make sure your health is towards full before facing Sun San Xiang; she will have Zhou Tai nearby and lots of soldiers. Taici Ci will also pursue you when facing Sun Quan. If "The main camp is under attack" message appears, forget the general-killing spree. Instead, help Liu Bei get secured. There are lots of 10 second Musous and Life Recovers in boxes near Liu Bei -- do not worry about your vitality bar. If you do not kill the soldiers fast enough, then Sun San Xiang will appear and hunt you down. Kill her, but there will be no weapon experience or status items. Also, before facing Sun Jian, you need to kill Huang Gai to open the gate. To finish the stage quickly, equip Red-Hare, or if you do not have any saddles, knock a general of his or hers. Note: Under the hard difficulty setting, status items will still be the same, but weapon experience will be doubled to 4,000 points.
Chris Sofjan.

Play the Battle Of Jian Ye level under the hard difficulty setting. If you think that your character will die if you play that level on that difficulty, then get someone to be a character who is already powered up (level 10 weapon recommended) and have that person help you. Kill all of the Generals in the level, and if needed have the powerful character weaken the General, then kill the General yourself. Sun Jian alone gives over 2,000 weapon experience points.
R1234ose.

Play the Yellow Turban Rebellion level under the hard difficulty setting. Defeat all enemy sub-officers and officers, but do not defeat any Gate Captians or Zhang Jaio will retreat to prevent this. Do not defeat Zhang Liang; they will have more morale, and it is impossible for allies to get to Zhang Liang. You can now defeat all Gate Captains. The best order is: He Yi, Yan Zhang, Gao Shing, Deng Mao, Cheng Yuanzhi, Pei Yuan Shou, Guan Hai, Zhang Man Chang, Zhang Bao, Zhou Cang, Han Xian, Bo Zhang, Zhang Liang (optional), Lui Pi, Huang Shao, and Zhang Jiao. If you are on the Wei side, you can defeat Deng Mao, Gao Sheng, Cheng Yuanzhi, He Yi, Yan Zheng, etc. Also, you should get Life +10 by killing Lui Pi and going straight up. There should be two pots and one box. Break the pot on the very right. If you are running low on health, break the middle pot and Musou +10 by going to Zhang Liang after killing Han Xian. Charge to Zhang Liang and once you cannot go any further, take a right. There should be three pots. Break the one that kind of pops out. If you are once again running low on health, break the right pot by the end. You should have a good 3,500 experience points, but this is mainly for weaker characters. If you have about a level 7 weapon, just go to the Battle Of Jain Yi level and defeat every officer and sub-officer. Defeat all Sun Jian's images to get a good 10,000 experience points.

Use the following strategy to increase a character's weapon to level 9 within an hour and a half. Do the following levels in order under the hard difficulty setting: Nanman campaign three times, killing every officer and sub-officer; Campaign Against Sun Jian Lu Bu's forces under the normal difficulty setting, killing all sub-officers and officers; and Campaign Against Sun Jian Lu Bu's forces under the hard difficulty setting. You should now have a level 9 weapon.
Jarrod Miller.

Play the Jie Ting leve as ether Cao Cao's Forces (easier) or Liu Bei's Forces. You will get about 1024 experience for defeating a famous officer and about 500 experience for a lower officer. You will also get an extra 40 experience for Charge hits (Square(2), Triangle) or other combos ending in a charge attack on famous officers. Remember that your weapons change at level 3 and level 7. It would help to have a level 15 Tiger Amulet, a level 20 Tortoise Amulet, and a level 15 Peacock Urn. Even if you get knocked around, you will lose less damage if you did this stage without a Tortoise Amulet at all. You could probably do this with a level 2 and higher weapon.
jh27.

Get the desired character with the weapon to level up to the Hu Lao Gate level(on Dong Zhuo's side). Clear the stage of every officer. When you get to Yuan Shao, do not use regular attacks on him. Instead, get a horse and keep riding by, continuously hitting him with the Triangle move. Every time you hit him, you should get 32 weapons experience under the normal difficulty setting.
Eqfreakj.

First, complete the Wei Dynasty campaign or at least make it to the The Siege Of Fan Castle level. Play this level in free mode under the easy difficulty setting. Fight for the Wei Forces as any character you wish to gain weapon experience for. Defeat every officer on the map. Try starting with Zhou Tai and his officer, Xu Sheng. Then head up towards Lu Xun and his officer, Ding Feng. After that, go towards Sun Zhang Xiang and her officer, Ling Tong. After that, go for Taishi Ci and his officer, Zhu Ran. By this time, either both Lu Meng and Sun Quan, or just Lu Meng are at the west gate. Move to Lu Meng and his officer Jiang Qin. Now all that remains in your way is Sun Quan and his officer, Cheng Pu. Once the mission is done, you should have about 8,000 weapon experience. Be careful, as this level is somewhat difficult. Make sure that you have at least a level 12 character.
Brandon Nicholson.

Hint: Easy level 10 weapons:
Play in two player mode. Use a low trained character who has a ninth weapon for player one and another trained character with at least a ninth weapon for player two. If you were supposed to defeat an enemy general, let player two weaken him. Then let player one defeat the enemy general.
Abdulrazzak Al Kazemi.

Hint: Fourth weapons:
If you are trying to get a fourth weapon and it is not working, make sure your weapon is at level 9. If it still does not work, then try it in Musou mode.

Start a game under the hard difficulty setting with the correct level and character for the weapon desired. As soon as you start, pause game play and quit. Set the difficulty to "Easy". Do not select "Continue"; instead, start a new game in free mode or Musou mode. As soon as that level starts, press Start + Select. Do not worry if the game resets, this is meant to happen. Then, select "Continue" to get the weapon in "Easy" mode.
Damien Hine.

I you get three stats for any character completely maxed out, he or she will gain their fourth weapon. Obviously, you must accomplish this with your third weapon already gained.
josh byatt.

Hint: Easy weapon levels:
For easy second weapons or level 4 weapons, play The Yellow Turban Menace a few times. If you want to get your rank faster, also keep playing the Yellow Turban Rebellion.
Kingry123.

Hint: Weapons:
For a second weapon, get your weapon to level 4. For a third weapon, get your weapon to level 7.
Kingry123.

Hint: Locating valuable items:
If you are having trouble locating valuable items when they appear, pause game play, select "History", and scroll to the "A valuable item has been discovered" notice. It will show you the exact location of the item when it appears.
Paul.

Hint: Easy duels:
Use Huang's Bow at level 10 or more. When a duel begins, take out your bow and shoot. The officer will fly back and come towards you. This gives you enough time to use your bow. To do this easier, shoot the bow, release the button, hold it again, and shoot. Repeat this until he or she is dead. Note: This will not work for all generals, especially Lu Bu.
Whity682.

While in Musou mode during a duel, if you are losing, run up as close to the wall as possible. Press R1 to aim with a bow and arrow. The general you are dueling will not attack, and you can survive to fight him on the battlefield.
Christopher Mate.

When you are losing a duel, go to the side of the dueling fences and hold R1 to switch to bow mode. While in bow mode, look outside the fence. Note: You must to be touching the fence and be looking outside for this to work.
Freeman.

As you are starting a one or one duel, the best way to get a good start and kill them quickly is run towards them. Jump and use your Square attack in mid air to hit them. They usually stop guarding when you jump. Then, get behind them when they are on the ground. When they get up, do your 1, 2, Triangle attack and repeat until they die.
Logan Rafferty.

Hint: Defeating Lu Bu:
This trick will take quite a long time, but is worth it. Before facing Lu Bu, charge up your Musou. Then, charge towards him (from behind, if possible). Use your Musou on him. After he is on the ground, use this chance to run away. Charge up your Musou again and return to attack him. Your Musou could be more powerful when your life bar is red. This will set Lu Bu on fire.
Edmond.

Take Lu Bu's Red Hare and run back and forth. Run him over and attack with Triangle to get weapon experience or just a normal Square attack. When he is almost dead, you can get off the horse and use Musou, or keep riding horse and lunge at him.
BillyBob062612.

Use the following trick to defeat Lu Bu in a duel. When in Hu Lao Gate, Yuan Shao will say "Protect the ram while it heads for Hu Lao Gate". After the ram destroys Hu Lao's Gate, Yuan Shao will say "All forces march. Take Dong Zhuo's head." After that, Lu Bu will appear. A few seconds, later Lu Bu will say "You dare face the mighty Lu Bu" . Duel him. Use the following items as Zhao Yun under the easy difficulty settin to defeat him. Note: Also use Zhao Yun's Max combo, which is Square(2), Triangle(3). If done correctly, he should fly in the air, allowing you to land another combo. The items are: Tiger Amulet: 15, Tortoise Armulet: 19, Peacock Urn: 15, Dragon Armulet: 15, Wind Scroll: none. Make sure your character has almost maximum stats.
XxMatt07xX.

Use the following trick to defeat Lu Bu in a duel. This can be somewhat difficult to actually do, but if it works you can defeat Lu Bu in a duel easily. First, get your character's weapon to at least level 4. Going to all three of the Yellow Turban levels twice (and defeating most, if not all Generals and sub-Generals) should take care of this. Attack Lu Bu with the third charge (Square(2), Triangle) and keep pressing Triangle. You will notice that since the character has the second form of the weapon, they do more hits than before. When Lu Bu becomes dizzy from the last hit, get behind him and do a very strong combo (varies for each character). Keep doing this until he is defeated. Note: Some characters tend to push Lu Bu to the side, thus missing the blow that actually makes him dizzy (for example, Liu Bei, Sun Quan, Guan Yu, etc.). However, this does not make it impossible for them to pull this off.
ThaMiniz87.

To defeat Lu Bu in under ten minutes, when the battle of Hu Lao Gate starts, quickly get your gate open by defeating the General that blocks it (Li Ru, Dong Min, etc.). The battering ram should now appear. Kill the General that blocks the Shu army. After killing him, the Shu army should protect the ram. Do not kill the Guard Captains. You will need their health power-ups when fighting Lu Bu. When the gate breaks, quickly hit Lu Bu off his horse. He should now be in rage and pursue you. Do not accept his duels. When fighting Lu Bu non-duel style, just block (L1) all of his attacks. If the light shines, jump and press Triangle for a jump charge. He should now be flying in mid-air. Quickly slash twice before he guards and counter. After jump charging, guard again. It is best for Lu Bu to let him decrease your health to red so you can Musou rather than slashing. Make sure health is nearby. When his life gets low, his Musou attack will shatter your defenses if not blocked correctly. Make sure you are in a stance in front of him. If he Musous, execute your Musou as well if you want to do damage. A stalemate will start; press Square rapidly.
Chris Sofjan.

First, get your character to level 8 or lower. Then, get your weapon to level 5 or higher. Finally, level up your bodyguards until you get 8. At the beginning of the battle of Hu Lao Gate, defeat at least four officers. When the ram appears, do not kill the guard captains. Wait until the ram breaks the gate and Lu Bu appears. Knock him off the Red Hare and do not challenge him to a duel. Get him to chase you, and run into only one other General. Get that General to attack him. Keep your distance and try to use your Charge Bow to knock him out (hold R1, then press Triangle). When he is knocked out, go up to him and perform a combo. If your life is red, keep your distance and let the General and your bodyguards attack him. When you get your Musou, use it on Lu Bu. Keep doing this until he dies. You can kill a Guard Captain to heal.
donny hoang.

Choose Zhao Yun. Equip him with a Lightning Orb. Charge up your Musou, then go to Lu Bu. Use your Triangle attack on him when he runs toward you. This may take a while to do, but it is worth it.
Alex Peacher.

Use the following trick to defeat Lu Bu without getting hit. Use Ma Chao or an edit character who uses Ma Chao's techniques (Spear 2 as a female). Before you get to Lu Bu, get a horse. Having a level 9 or 10 weapon helps, but is not necessary. Having eight bodyguards also helps, but again is not necessary. Once you reach Lu Bu make, kill all of the normal soldiers near him; this is optional if you have the Shadow Saddle equipped. Be careful not to hit him or he will attack you savagely. After the normal troops are dead, you can get to Lu Bu. The reason the normal soldiers must die is that they would knock you off your horse. Once there is noone around, kill Lu Bu with your normal Triangle attack. It has a large range and stuns Lu Bu. The second time will knock him over, but since he always does the fast jump up your next shot will hit him anyway. If your character is weak, it is easier if you have a second person. This is a precaution because if Lu Bu does get a hit in (uncommon) they can charge past and knock him over while you get back on your horse.
IceFlame.

Choose anyone, then if desired try to duel him. It probably will not work. Then try as best as you can with either sticking with groups of men to attack him or doing a small amount of attacking while running back and forth.
KingArvedui.

Hint: Easy kills:
Unlock Ma Chao and the Shadow Rider saddle (to avoid getting knocked off). Then, ride into a crowd of enemies and use your charge attack. It will send a shockwave into the enemies, taking anywhere to half or a little less than half of their health. Repeat this a few times and you will have killed any enemies around you. Using this, it is possible to get 1000 or more kills easily in a stage.
Jason Mabry.

Hint: Regain health:
When you are low on health after an officer battle, you can get health easily by defeating elite guards, guard captains, and gate captains. Note: The Yellow Turbans do not have elite guards, but some of the captains have health.
HBKRVD9.

Hint: Sniper bow:
When aiming at someone far away, hold R1 for a few seconds without touching anything else. You will zoom in on the target, making it easier to select who you want to hit with an arrow.
TeamPudsBandito.

Hint: Flaming geysers:
The geysers will stop burning or shooting up in the air just before they explode.
LeftBehind401.

Hint: Dim Sums and Musou Wines:
This can only be done in Musou mode. Choose the Wu Kingdom and play until you reach "The Little Conqueror" tale. Choose Campaign for Wu Territory first and take the supply depot. Then, choose Unification of Jiang Dong. The Dim Sum is located on the top fort, to the left of the bottom entrance. The next one is located inside the bottom fort, to the left of the center building. The two Musou Wines are located inside the Elft fort, in the smaller center fort, at the bottom left corner, next to a guard watch tower. The other one is on the top fort, to the right of the bottom entrance.
David.

Hint: Defense from Gate Captains:
Go to a difficult level and let your Gate Captain get killed. A Defense +1 will appear.
bigdmiddle14.

Hint: Flip up after being knocked down or off a horse:
After being knocked down or off a horse, quickly press L1 to flip up and get ready to attack or guard. This also works well when fighting in duels.
AJ Wilson.

Hint: Counter-attack:
If you jump and press Triangle, but are hit in mid-air, quickly press R1 and Triangle again. Almost always, you will not get hit a second time.
SoulPiper27.

Hint: Attack Range:
The Attack Range determines how long the sword is ("Reach", according to Dynasty Warriors 3). The Wind Scroll item increases it. The characters with the most Attack Range are Lu Bu and Cao Cao. The ones with the least is Sun Ce and Nu Wa (edit female character with Raeper).
3AnGaRoOo9.

Hint: Luck:
Luck gives you a chance to get better recovery items, Orbs, and special items. The items that increase luck are Seven Star Sash and the Hex Hare Saddle. For example, in Battle Of Jian Ye level, the elite guard next to Huang Gai gives you Life Recovery +100, but if you a Hex Hare equipped it should give All Recovery Full.
3AnGaRoOo9.

Hint: Raising morale:
To raise your army's morale, you must defeat a group of 50 soldiers. Every 50 soldiers defeated, one of your generals will make a comment such as "I bow to your skills", "We will all follow your example", etc. This will raise your army's morale. Defeating 1000 soldiers will raise every general to eight stars.
David.

Hint: Longer Musou attacks:
Hold Circle during a Musou and it will last slightly longer. If you do this during Musou full for ten or sixty seconds, your player will continually do the Musou attack until the bar runs out.
Galickgun327.

Hint: Special Musou attack:
Play with two players. Fill both player's Musou bar to full. Each player must stand near the other player, then press Circle (or do Musou Attack) together. The screen will act like if they did a True Musou Attack (when the health is in the red). Then, both players will have a Special Musou Attack. Note: This can be done even when at full health.
MEGA.

Hint: Horse ability:
Before you start a battle, equip any harness. During the, battle you will get the ability in any horse. For example, equip the Shadow Rider Saddle which prevents you from being knocked off when on a horse. Then, try to sit on other General' horse you will also get that effect.
Virus.

Hint: New sides:
In order to get new sides on levels (Shu on Cheng Du, Wu on Jian Ye, Wu on Battle of Fan Castle, Wei side in Tian Shui gate), you must activate some tales (Imperial Seal, Eliminate Zhang Jiao, etc.) depending on which character you use. For example, getting Jian Ye for Wu is very difficult, as you have to activate tales and finish levels in under the hard difficulty setting.
Chris Sofjan.

Hint: New tales:
Do the following to unlock new "tales" or acts.
Chris Sofjan and jjb234.

To unlock Tong Gate, play on the Shu side. Play the last level in every act until it appears.
To unlock Tian Shui, play the last level for every act with Shu until it appears; ; even after Tong Gate tale, continue on.
To unlock Imperial Seal, play with Wu. Play all three levels in the Yellow Turban act, then play Hu Lao Gate only and kill Lu Bu. It is your choice to kill Dong Zhuo or not.
To unlock the Battle Of Ru Nan (not the race), play with Shu finishing Yellow Turban Rebellion first, then Hu Lao Gate, but do not kill Lu Bu. Also, killing Dong Zhuo is required.
To unlock the Wei Tales- Battle Of Ji Province, in the Wei Musou Mode with any Wei general, when you get to Act II go to Hu Lao Gate first. Defeat Lu Bu. You may kill Dong Zhuo if you wish. Then, after Act III you will go to Wei Tales the Battle of Ji Province.
To unlock the Wu Tales - Battle of Mai Castle, when playing the Battle Of Chi Bi in the Wu Musou mode with any Wu general, make sure all the ploys work. After Act V, you will go to the Battle of Mai Castle.
Instead of playing Si Shui gate in Musou mode Shu Act 2, play Hu Lao gate and the two main officers Hua Shung and Li Jue will appear. Win the level and you may kill Dong Zhou or let him escape. Either way, you will unlock a Shu Tales. You will get more experience this way
AzNDuDe.
Complete the levels in order for the Wu Musou mode. When you get to Hu Lao Gate, do not accept Lu Bu's challenge. Do not kill Lu Bu. Kill Dong Zhuo, then in the next Act just play the last level. You should unlock Wu Tales: The Unification Of Jing.
PoptartSkate.
Kill all Generals, Sub-Generals, Soldiers and Gate Captains and leave Zhang Jiao the only enemy on the map. He will retreat and the next battle will be Eliminate Zhang Jiao.
koh sze enn.
Start a Musou with any of the main forces (Wu, Shu, or Wei) and kill every general including all four of Zhang Jiao's officers. After a few minutes Zhang Jiao will retreat and the next Act will be a Tales level, Eliminate Zhang Jiao.
StnOn20s.

Hint: Alternate endings:
You may have noticed that every time you complete Musou mode, you will get ending 3. There are special requirements for endings 1, 2 and 4. To get ending 1, you must play Musou mode with a clear time of twenty minutes and up on every stage as an average. You must also clear fourteen or less stages (Wei, Shu, Wu) or five or less stages (others). To get ending 2, you must play Musou mode with more than 200 kills average per stage, more than 4,000 points average per stage, and a clear time of twenty minutes and up per stage. You must also clear more than fifreen stages (Wei, Shu, Wu) or clear six or more stages (others). To get ending 4, you must play Musou mode with more than 200 kills average per stage, more than 4,000 points average per stage and a clear time of twenty minutes or less per stage. You will also have to clear more than fifteen stages (Wei, Shu, Wu) or clear six or more (others). You need to fulfill other special requirements for ending 4:

Hint: Poem meanings:
After you have finished Musou mode with any force, you will receive a little poem which reflects your score during Musou mode. Each quote is related to how you performed. At the end of the poem, there is a result. You will get three results.

[Strength of fire] or [Strength of the inferno]
[Mind of lightning] or [Mind of the heavens]
[Speed of the wind] or [Speed of the tempest]

After the results have shown, there is a conclusion which includes either "Thus, a miracle was born", "Thus, conquest was achieved", "Thus, order was restored" or "Thus, the world was changed".

Strength reflects your number of kills either by:
Fire (worst): Less than 200 kills on average
Inferno (best): More than 200 kills on average
Mind refers to the number of points you got either by:
Lightning (worst): Less than 4000 points on average
Heavens (best): More than 4000 points on average
Speed reflects the time it took you to complete a stage either by:
Wind (worst): More than 20 minutes on average
Tempest (best): Less than 20 minutes on average

For example, if you got Strength of the inferno, Mind of lightning, and Speed of the tempest, that counts as two feats and the conclusion will be "Thus, conquest was achieved". This poem will help you get those endings.
David.

Hint: Items dropped by Generals:
If the General's strategy was tactical or balanced, it should give you defense. If the General's strategy was offensive or defensive, then it will give you attack. If the General's strategy was normal, it will most likely give you attack, but may also give you defense. There are some exceptions to the items at times.
3aBoOs.

Hint: Gain power-ups from allies:
Play with one character as Huang Gai and the second player as the character you want to work on. Make sure you are playing on an easy level, such as one of the Yellow Turban levels (because allies are not really needed there). Have the player who is not Haung Gai stay close to him, as the power-ups eventually fade away, and it also saves time. Go near an allied General with Huang Gai. Lay two bombs next to him by pressing Triangle(2). Run away before the bombs hurt you and repeat. The allied General will have 1 HP remaining after you repeat the bombing. Wait for the general to be hit once by anyone, even peons. The General will die, leaving a power-up. It is not a good idea to do it to the commander, considering he or she needs to stay alive or you will lose. This works on any General, friend or not. It also affects your bodyguards; keep them away from the bombs. Put your bodyguards to hold position by pressing Select.
u9b909.

Hint: Preventing bodyguards from killing an officer for you:
To prevent a bodyguard from killing an officer that you are trying to kill for weapon experience, press Select until you see the "wait hand" symbol. This will cause the bodyguard(s) to basically attack the people around you, but not have the finishing kill for the officer.
Jeff Hafkemeyer.

Hint: Easy bodyguard level up:
To level up your bodyguards quickly, play the Yellow Turban Rebellion level as a strong character (preferably with at least a level 7 weapon). Use all your bodyguards as soon as you start the level. Press Select only once. Do not kill many troops. Let your bodyguards do all the work. When you meet any officers or generals, weaken them and let your bodyguards finish them off. This will get your bodyguards up at least one level every time. Collect health when your bodyguards are dying to heal them. Jhang Jaio may be difficult for them; you may have to do it instead.
sleepingdragon.

Hint: Quick Act completion:
In Musou Mode, you do not have to play all three stages in an Act. You just have to win the last one to finish that Act.
Michael Mitten.

Hint: Horse abilities:
Each special horse has an ability.
Whity682.

Red Hare Saddle: Fastest horse.
Hex Mark Saddle: Raises your luck.
Shadow Rider Saddle: You cannot get knocked off when on horse or any other.
Storm Saddle: Raises your horse attack.
Elephant Saddle: Runs over objects such as towers, crates, and bottles.

Hint: Dragon class Bodyguards:
You must have your Bodyguards set on bow from the start until they reach level 10. At level 10, switch them to spear until they get to level 13. When the guards are on level 13, set them to pike all the way through. Note: At about level 17, your guards will change to Phoenix, but when they get to level 20 they will be Dragon class, which gives them the Blast Orb elemental attack.
Lostsoul704.

Hint: Recommended characters:
Lu Bu is of course the strongest character, but others can also be good. Ma Chao has a good mounted attack. Equip him with Herbal Remedy and Horned Helmet and he will be good. Storm Saddle is also recommended for higher attack. Also, if on foot, equip him with an Electric Orb, and do his final charge attack (Square(5), Triangle). He will hit everyone around him and shock them, doing massive damage. Zhou Tai also is strong with quick attacks, a strong final charge attack, and a very powerful Musou attack.
munchies.

Hint: Always have orb effect:
Once you have a level 10 weapon, the orb you equiped to your player will always be in effect, reguardless of how full you Musou bar is.
Kintaroman1672.

Glitch: Multiple Red Hares:
To get multiple Red Hares, play as Zang He under Yuan Shou in the Hu Lou Gate level. Defeat the six generals outside of the main fortress before the ram knocks down the gate. Charge in on foot and watch Lu Bu appear. While you are fighting him, knock him back and get on his Red Hare. Note: Stay inside the main castle. Charge him through a few times on the Red Hare, then go far enough away that he is no longer in your line of vision. Each time you bring him back into view, he will be on a new Red Hare.
Gene Hardin.

When playing the Battle Of Hu Lao Gate level, after facing Lu Bu, knock him off his horse then retreat long enough so that Lu Bu is not visable any more. Then, move forward again. Lu Bu will be sitting on a second Red Hare horse, and his previous Red Hare will still be avalable. Note: You can repeat this as many times as desired.
Mercury.

Glitch: Character off-screen:
At the end of a battle, there is a victory sequence showing your character doing a simple swing or two. If you continue to fight even after you defeat the enemy General, every once in awhile your character will spin slightly, causing them to be completely or partially off the screen when the camera is done spinning around you.
LeftBehind401.

Glitch:Disapearing life, Musou bar, and morale:
Get Ma Chao's Weapon at level 7 or higher so that he can make the final charge attack (Square(5), Triangle). Equip him with the following items: Way Of Musou,Lightning Orb, and Tiger Amulet at level 7 or more. Go to a group of soldiers and use your final charge attack. Thenm quickly hold Circle, Everything will disappear from the screen. Note there must be at least seventeen soldiers surrounding you and have a full Musou bar when doing this. Note: It is important that you hit them with the last Triangle attack.
Justin Jtz.

Glitch: Unlimited Musou for Sima Yi:
Note: This trick requires two players. First, make sure player one is using Sima Yi, and player two is using Zhuge Liang. When player one has his/her Musou bar full, have player two to stand in front of player one. When you do that, you will see that player one's Musou bar becomes full again. Note: This is useful if you use Zhuge Liang to walk in front of Sima Yi and then walk away, in front, away, in front, away, etc.
Freeman.

Glitch: No arrows:
This trick requires two players. Start in free mode with any character and stage. When the stage starts, make both players meet each other. Have one player waste all of his arrows. When there are no more arrows remaining, keep R1 held. Have the other player hold R1 also, and look at the side of your other player. The character will be holding the bow with an arrow in his hand, but will not shoot it.
David.

Glitch: No duel attack:
During a one on one duel with any general, if you think you are about to die from battle, run directly into the fence and pull out your arrow. It seems that the general will not hurt you while you do this until time runs out.
David.

Glitch: Damage from taunt:
Play as Lu Bu and do his taunt when standing a certain distance from enemies. They will actually take damage from the taunt istelf. You can even kill enemies this way (commanders, generals, troops). They will all go down if you do it enough times.
ShadowKnight160.

Glitch: Nothing hits you:
When you are near deathm pull out your bow (R1) and aim into the sky.While holding the bow, hold L1. This allows you to move around. Eventually the officer will run away from you. This trick is very useful when you are trying to escape Lu Bu.
Alex Peacher.

Glitch: Walking in water:
This trick requires two players. Select the Chang Ban level and have each player choose any desired character. Once the game starts, play through the level until Liu Bei commands you to destroy the two bridges near the bottom of the map. Have both players meet, then choose either bridge one or two. Make player one walk past the bridge while player two stands on the bridge. After the intermission sequence showing that your character has destroyed the bridge ends, player two would fall off, into the river. Once you go out of the river, you cannot go in again. This may take a few attempts, as your character may warp to the other side of the river.
David.

Glitch: Temporary air suspension:
This trick requires two players. You must both have a horse. One player must stand next his horse while the other player stands pretty far away (while on his horse) to the side of the of the other player's horse. Next, the player on the horse should run at the other players' horse. The player next to his own horse must get on it just before the other player hits the horse. If successful, when the player is getting on his horse, it should be pushed away by the other player, so that the player will be floating in mid-air and teleport onto the horse when the process of climbing onto a horse is over.
Gotenks971.

Glitch: Lightning element does not give you the kill:
Whenever you kill an officer or soldier with the lightning strike dealing the finishing blow, you do not get the actual kill.
David.

Glitch: Weapon sound:
When attacking with the Xiahou Yuan weapon (Sword 10 in the Warrior Edit mode), it sounds like a blunt weapon, and not a sword as it is supposed to be.
Adam Reese.

Glitch: Yellow Turban Rebellion level: Air flotation:
Go to Zhang Bao's fortress. You will notice that there are some broken buildings that all look the same. Go to the lower right corner to see a different brownish building. Use a high jumping player (Zhang He recommended) and equip her with Fly Boot. Try to jump on the southern side of the building where there is no wall. You will land in mid-air.
Justin Jtz.

Glitch: Yellow Turban Rebellion level: Dead character retreats:
On the Yellow Turban Rebellion stage, after you kill Zhang Jiao if you have killed every other officer on the map, including sub-officers, and enough time has passed after the cinematic when Zhang Jiao falls to the ground, a guard will tell Zhang Jiao to retreat. The "Zhang Jiao is retreating" message will appear, even though he is dead.
william oberg.

Glitch: Both players as Xiahou Dun:
This trick requires two players. Choose Guan Du then select Yuan Shao's Force. When prompted to pick your characters, have player one choose Zhou Yun and the second player to select Xiahou Dun. When the game starts, both players will be Xiahou Dun. Note: This may cause the game to malfunction. This may include player one's character screen not following that character or player two's screen not having any enemies.
David.

Glitch: Both players as Zhou Yun:
Same as above but player one chooses Xiahou Dun and player 2 chooses Zhou Yun
