Hint: Excalibur:
The sword that the government general had in the original Way Of The Samurai is also in Way Of The Samurai 2, except it is called Excalibur. To get this sword, you must be extremely loyal to the town's people (do a lot of jobs from the Amakaze Inn Job Broker). Once you have earned enough trust from the townspeople, go to the sword informant at the Amahara Shrine. She will say something about a wild dog visiting Amahara. Quickly go directly to Otemon Gate and talk to the foreigner. Make sure to agree to fight him. Be prepared for a tough fight, and try not to break his sword or all your hard work will be for nothing. Just in case, save the ame before this tough fight. Before you get this sword you must to visit the sword informant at least one time. Note: To get this sword, you cannot fail a single Amakaze Inn job. Try to save the game frequently before jobs. Also, do not pick fights with people unless someone attacks you first, and do not rob any stores. Also, this must be done under the normal, hard, or sudden death difficulty settings.

Hint: Murasame:
The Murasame is obtained under the normal or hard difficulty setting. Select to work for either the Aoto gang or the Magistrates' office. Make sure that whichever you choose, you are completely loyal to the selected job broker. If you choose Aoto, do not work any other broker during the entire game. The same goes if you choose the magistrates; work only for them. One very important factor is that you must not fail a single job from either man you selected. If you chose to work with the Magistrates' office and you have done sufficient jobs, he will give you a job where he will ask you to kill the Aoto Gang job broker. This man wields the Murasame. Kill the job broker and collect his sword. This is the simpler way. Your other option is to work for the Aoto Gang instead and kill the Magistrate job broker when the job arises. After you do this, during the next nighttime period, approach the edge of town. A samurai will be there with a name above him reading "Killer". Talk to him and you will fight him. After his death, he will admit who sent him. Confront the Aoto gang broker as soon as this happens (as in the same time period), and choose the option to kill him. After you are victorious, you will have his sword, the Murasame.

Hint: Sword Powder:
Start a score under any difficulty setting and wait until late at night. Go Numata-Cho and kill the blacksmith. He drops a Sword Powder which will add 5 Attack to your weapon. Repeat this for unlimited Sword Powders.
Bob Hand.

Hint: Weapon Safe upgrade:
You can increase the size of your weapon safe by talking to a woman next to the blacksmith at night time. She will increase the size of your safe for the following prices.
Bob Hand.

Increase from 20 to 30 slots: 500 Mon
Increase from 30 to 40 slots: 1000 Mon
Increase from 40 to 50 slots: 1600 Mon
Increase from 50 to 60 slots: 2400 Mon
Increase from 60 to 70 slots: 3200 Mon

Hint: Special accessories:
Bob Hand.

Get 2,100 points to unlock the Afro.
Get 2,400 points to unlock the Shades.

Hint: Getting money:
Go to the shrine during the day and you will see a boy named Kotsubo. Talk to him to fight a random "Boss" to earn Mon. If you lose the fight, you will lose Mon.
Bob Hand.

When you complete a job you will get paid some money. The Majistrates pay the most for jobs. The Aoto gang pays slightly less. The Job broker pays the least.

Pickpocketing can only be done if you do jobs for the Aoto clan. After you do a few jobs you will get a job that requires you to pick a Magistrate's pocket. This is done by simply bumping into him from his front. Once you get this mission, you will be able to pickpocket for the rest of the game. You can get 10 Mon, 5 Mon, or 1 Mon by doing this. You can pickpocket the same person as many times as desired. Trying to pickpocket a Magistrate and Aoto gang member will probably result in them attacking you (and no money from them).

Every time you kick a foreigner he will drop 5 Mon. Cutting down innocent people will get you some Mon sometimes. If you cut down too many people stores will not let you buy or do anything in them.

Breaking boxes will almost always get you some money or the occasional rice ball. Breaking buckets and pots though fun will not get you anything.

Hint: Great sword:
This can be done with any sword. Go to Numata-Cho to the blacksmith's and get your sword upgraded. You do not pay if you do not have enough Mon. If you have enough Mon, pay him and get it upgraded. You can do this again, even if you don't have enough Mon. Then, get killed and do it again. This can be done as many times as desired.

Hint: Festival fight:
On the 26th, during festival battle, sheathe your weapon and run away. The opponents will kill each other, even if you are not fighting. Kill off any survivors afterwards.
Bob Hand.

Hint: Quick item pick-up:
To quickly pick up an item, even in battle, hold R1 and tap Square when you are near the desired item.
Bob Hand.

Hint: Unlimited food:
In Part 1, Start a new game under the easy difficulty setting. Bring a good weapon. Talk to the "no name girl" at the begging and say "Thanks, you saved my life!" to skip past her part. When you talk to the Aoto Gang 3, say "I'm searching for the way of life" and they should leave you alone. Go to the Magistrate's office and complete the intermission sequence where you have to fight Goshiro. In Part 2, after the first part, keep going to the Magistrate's office and getting jobs. Sleep when needed and keep doing jobs for them. Note: Do not anger or harass people or this will not work later. A day before the Festival on the 26th, on the morning of the 25th, go to Otsuka-cho (where your home is located). Go to the greengrocer there. Buy lots of radishes then go back to the map. Press Start, display the menu, then choose "Safe Selections". Open your item box and store them. Go back and repeat until you are out of money. Then, either finish a game mode or leave Amahara and save the game. In Part 3, once you have done all this, start a new game in any mode. In the starting screen where you can select swords and your look, go to items and take out as many radishes as desired. You can keep doing this trick repeatedly to get more food, and can get food from your safe at any time in any game. Note: If you die you will lose all of your items, swords, and money you are carrying if you save the game afterwards. Note: Radishes cost 250 Mon at the greengrocers. Radishes heal 600 HP.

Hint: Sleeping:

Nap: 1 time period
Lie down: 2 time periods
Sleep a bit: 3 time periods
Sleep: 4 time periods
Deep sleep: 5 time periods

Hint: Broken sword warning:
If you have Dojima work on your sword and he says "There's not much more i can do for this weapon", do not have your sword worked on. If you choose to have it worked on, it could break and you will lose that sword.

Hint: Gold title:
To obtain the Gold title, find a weapon with a quality of at least 15. Have Dojima assess the weapon's quality. This increases the quality by 5.

Hint: Ogre title:
To obtain the Ogre title, improve a weapon's attack to at least 100. Talk to Dojima the Blacksmith, and have him assess the weapon's attack. This will improve your attack by 100 with absolutely no side effects. A weapon can only be assessed one time.

Hint: Pure title:
To obtain the Pure title, improve a weapon's defense to at least 45. Talk to Dojima, and have him assess the weapon's defense. This will improve your defense by 20, again, with no side effects.

Hint: Silver title:
To obtain the Silver title, find a weapon with a quality of at least 11. Have Dojima assess the weapon's quality. This increases the quality by 2.
