This is my SW2 4th weapon guide. This was originally published on KW's Samurai Warriors 2 section (ages ago) but since visitors and members rarely view that section, I thought it would be wise to put this guide on forums. If someone is still having trouble for obtaining 4th weapons, I hope this guide is able to provide the help you need :). Enjoy.

**Credit to G.O.W, Gtown and everyone else who have provided various 4th/5th weapon requirements**

Things to remember before trying to obtain 4th weapons:

• You need to complete character's Story Mode at least once in any difficulty. Dream Stages are not necessary, however.
• They can only be obtained in Story Mode (with the exception of Okuni and Ranmaru).
• Difficulty must be set on Hard or above.
• If you're using 2nd player, make sure that 1st player fulfills the requirements.
• If you're playing with XL, you'll need SW2 disc in order to get 4th weapons for SW2 characters.

Yukimura Sanada

Name: Dragon's Tail
Base Attack: +45
Element: Fire
Stats: Life +19, Attack +35, Defense +38, Horse +18, Musou Charge +32

Stage: Osaka Campaign
Requirements: Prevent Ina and Masamune from entering the main keep once they advance. Valuable item appears after Hideyori Toyotomi orders Toyotomi Army to charge.
Recommended level: +25

First take out Katsumoto Takagiri and exit Osaka Castle from the south enterance. Defeat Naotaka Ii, Toshitsune Maeda and Tadanao Matsudaira (if you have time) outside the castle. Ieyasu soon sends out his cannon. Ignore Takatora Todo and destroy the cannon. When the cannon has been destroyed, finish off Todo and proceed to northeast where Ina is. Prevent her entry to Osaka Castle's main keep. Take care of Tadateru Matsudaira and Nagamasa Kuroda as well. Lastly, head to northwest corner where Masamune is with his officers. Defeat Masamune and wait for Hideyori to order Toyotomi Army to charge. Valuable item should appear on the first floor of Osaka Castle. Then, finish the stage normally.

Keiji Maeda

Name: Divine Mandible
Base Attack +50
Element: Lightning
Stats: Life +18, Attack +53, Horse +19, Musou Charge +49

Stage: Battle of Hasedo
Requirements: Obtain 1000 KOs.
Recommended level: +30

Defeat Yoshiaki Mogami at the first gate. Break through the 2nd gate as well by defeating all enemy generals. At the third gate, when your mission is to stop the enemy, start the slaughtering. However, don't kill all enemy generals so that you don't run out of soldiers. Once you have obtained 1000 KOs, a tranport units appears just southwest of the 2nd gate. Catch up with them and go aid Kanetsugu who is being attacked by Masamune.

Nobunaga Oda

Name: Demon Regalia
Base Attack: +46
Element: Wind
Stats: Musou +18, Attack +35, Defense +16, Speed +18, Musou Charge +35, Attack Range +19

Stage: Battle of Tedorigawa
Requirements: Rescue all of your allied units; Hideyoshi Hashiba, Toshiie Maeda, Nagahide Niwa, Katsuei Shibata and Kazumasa Takigawa.
Recommended level: +20

Proceed north and defeat Shigeie Shimura immediately. Cross the bridge in the north and defeat Kagetsugu Amakasu. First ally you're going to rescue is Hideyoshi in the north. Defeat the general near him and Hideyoshi starts his retreat into south. Keep on going and rescue Toshiie Maeda from the enemy general. Katsuie Shibata is fightning against Takahiro Kitajaro in the small island. Rescue him as well. From Katsuie's location head southwest and aid Kazumasa Takigawa. Only one ally remains and that's Nagahide Niwa in the south. Give him a hand and escort him to escape point. Nagaatsu Shimura is probably bothering your allies at the west so take care of him as soon as possible. Once the last allied unit has reached the escape point, transport units appear near Kenshin's main camp. Go grab your weapon, prevent
Kanetsugu's entry to Funaoka Castle and kill Kenshin to complete the stage.

Mitsuhide Akechi

Name: Gilded Talon
Base Attack: +45
Element: Lightning
Stats: Musou +36, Attack +34, Defense +35, Attack Range +37

Stage: Mitsuhide Unites Japan (Dream)
Requirements: When Kotaro appears, have at least 4 allied officers alive so that Mitsuhide's army advances.
Recommended level: +40

Start by defeating Narimasa Sassa. Head to south and recue your ally by defeating Katsuie Shibata, Toshiie Maeda and Kazumasa Takigawa. Go further to the south where Masamune is. Defeat him and his officers in order to rescue another ally. Head back to your main camp. Now defeat all approaching enemy generals (Keiji, Tadayu Okubo, Kazumasa Ishikawa, Okuni, Nagazane Irobe, Tadasuke Okubo, Shigenaga Honjo, Yukimura and Kanetsugu) with the help of your allies. Once you have dealt with all enemy generals, approach Tokugawa main camp from the north. Defeat Mototada Torii and Tadatsugu Sakai who are guarding the first and second gates. Now you can approach Tadakatsu and when you've done that Kotaro appears in the north. If you have at least four allies alive, a message saying 'The Akechi Army is advancing' shows up on the screen and the transport units come out of the stronghold just northwest of the first north gate. Oh, and have fun with Kotaro and Tadakatsu.

Kenshin Uesugi

4th:
Frozen Flame
Base Attack: +46
Element: Ice
Stats: Musou +19, Attack +50, Speed +38, Attack Range +34

Stage: Conquest for Kyushu (Dream)
Requirements: Activate the geyser event, get trapped inside the northwestern garrison, defeat Mitsuhide and Ranmaru in that order.
Recommended level: +40

Recommended equipment:
- Matsukaze, Persian Mare or Moon Child as your mount.
- Have 3rd weapon with Ice or Demon element and if possible, with Attack boost as well.
- Have Fitness, Opportunity, Awakening, Potence, True Power and Ele-Charge skills at level 3.

You start from the south. Take western route, head north, past the geyser. Occupy the stronghold near you and the geyser event triggers soon. You need to take a long detour now. Go all the way north, turn east, past the Takeda main camp and head for Tsuruga Castle where Shingen is already struggling against Hashiba Army. When you arrive to Tsuruga Castle, make sure you defeat all Hashiba generals. Now wait untill the west gate of Tsuruga Castle opens and hurry back to Uesugi main camp. Rescue Kageie Kagizaki and Kanetsugu by defeating all generals in the south. At this point Yukimura is having trouble in the north so advance there. Defeat Nene and Toshiie Maeda/Nagachika Kanamori (XL) and your allies are safe for now. Head to Yoshihiro's location in northwest before your allies do. The gates close behind you and you're ambushed by Yoshihiro, Yoshihisa Shimazu, No and Nobutada Oda. Kill all of them as fast as you can and exit the main camp. First head to Takeda main camp and defeat the generals there. Ranmaru is approaching towards you but you don't have time for him. Instead, head to Mitsuhide's location and take on both of them (sucks, I know). Keep in mind that you must defeat Mitsuhide first and then Ranmaru. Once they both are dead the transport units appear in the Uesugi main camp. Get your weapon, kill the enemy generals while you're there and prepare for the final battle against Yoshihiro and his brother, Yoshihisa.

Oichi

Name: Cup and Gold
Base Attack: +42
Element: Lightning
Stats: Life +34, Attack +38, Defense +34, Musou Charge +32

Stage: Incident at Shizukatage (Dream)
Requirements: Succeed in the mission 'Rescue Nagamasa Azai' and defeat Nobunaga Oda and No. Defeat Ginchiyo Tachibana and Ina. Defeat Ranmaru Mori. Lastly, defeat Okuni (defects) and Nene in that order and wait until No shows up 2nd time.
Recommended level: +40

Take out Narimasa Sassa, Toshiie Maeda and Hidemasa Hori when the stage begins. Move to north and defeat Yoshinari Mori. Enemies should have already ambushed Nagamasa in the north. Go for his aid and complete the mission 'Rescue Nagamasa Azai' by defeating generals near him. Now comes the hard part, you must defeat No and Nobunaga, but not Nene. If you defeat No first, Nobunaga leaves the battlefield and you can't let that happen. So take your horse and charge into Oda main camp. Defeat him quickly though because No might go after Nagamasa and you can't afford to lose him. Once Nobunaga has been defeated, finish off No. Now all Oda and Azai generals retreat, except Nene, Okuni and Nagamasa. Soon Ginchiyo and Ina appear in the east and they're after you. Show them whose the boss while avoiding Nene. Your next opponent will be Ranmaru (hope you're not surprised) who appears in the south. Just like Nene, he's in the hyper mode but at least he's slower than you. Defeat him as fast as you can and yes, you still need to avoid Nene. Now that you have defeated all generals, Okuni thinks she's the most beautiful and decides to defect. However, you must defeat Okuni first (watch out, she's quite strong) and then Nene. Finally, No appears for the 2nd time and at the same time the transport units come out from the stronghold located southwest from the central garrison. Annihilate them and beat No to claim the title of the most beautiful woman in the Japan!

Okuni

Name: Raging Sun
Base Attack: +44
Element: Fire
Stats: Attack +19, Defense +37, Speed +17, Dexterity +39, Attack Range +35

Stage: Survival Mode - The Traveling Dancer
Requirements: Do the mission 'The Traveling Dancer' on floor 61 or above and defeat Keiji Maeda.
Recommended level: +35

Get at least 3000 gold so that you can start the Survival Mode from floor 51.Complete two missions (doesn't matter what they are) and you're on floor 61. Save your game and quit. Continue the Survival Mode and if you don't see the mission 'The Traveling Dancer' on the list, soft reset (Start+Select), go to options menu, load your game and choose 'Continue' again. Keep doing this until the mission appears. The goal of 'The Traveling Dancer' is to help Okuni to collect funds for the Izumo Shrine. If you allow her to be defeated on floors 1-4 the mission fails so take good care of her. On the 1st floor, listen what Okuni has to tell you and the door to the stairs opens. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors you have to convince one of the warlords to donate money for you. The warlords are Shingen, Kenshin, Ieyasu, Hideyoshi and Nobunaga. Succeed in the given tasks on each floor to get the donation. On the 5th floor you'll find Keiji. Help him to defeat the imposter Okuni. After you have defeated the imposter, Keiji says he has something for you... a match against him! Beat him with your umbrella and grab the red weapon box which he drops. Proceed upstairs and you're the new happy owner of Okuni's ultimate weapon.

Magoichi Saika

Name: Marksman's Pride
Base Attack: +45
Element: Fire
Stats: Life +35, Attack +38, Musou Charge +20, Attack Range +39, Luck +12

Stage: Escape from Honnouji
Requirements: Defeat Nobunaga Oda within 10 minutes.
Recommended level: +30

This is not hard weapon to obtain but maybe a bit annoying. And because your time limit is only 10 minutes, I recommend you don't stop to help the peasants (and you might get lost). If you look at the map, you can't see your position but you start from the southwest corner. Go along the western edge of the map until you come to a stronghold. Check the map again and you should see a garrison which is located east from the stronghold. Go there. Once you arrive there, the gates close and you're ambushed by Raiders. Before you dismount your horse, make sure it faces north so you know where you're supposed to go when you mount it again. Kill the Raiders and exit the garrison from the north enterance. No and Ranmaru appear in front of you. Kill them quickly and keep going north until you see another stronghold. From there, head east and you arrive at the gates of another garrison. Gates are being guarded by Shigetomo Akechi. Defeat him and enter the garrison. This time, make sure that your horse faces south when you dismount. Nobunaga should appear pretty soon. Use all your strenght to defeat him as fast as you can and then Interim save immediately. The transport units appear somewhere in the south and they head west. I'm not sure where exactly but if you ride to southeastern stronghold (go along the eastern edge) and then head west, you should encounter them. When you have the weapon, head back to garrison where Kotaro is. Defeat him to finish the stage.

Shingen Takeda

Name: Heaven's Sign
Base Attack: +48
Element: Wind
Stats: Life +18, Attack +20, Defense +51, Ride +20, Speed +19, Attack Range +19

Stage: Battle of Nagashino
Requirements: Succeed in the missions 'Seize control of Nagashino Castle', 'Defend the Tobigasu garrison', 'Prevent Tadakatsu Honda from entering the main camp', 'Prevent Hideyoshi Hashiba from entering the main camp' and wait for the rain event.
Recommended level: +30

Your first task is to occupy Nagashino Castle. Defeat the general in front of the gate. Enter the garrison and defeat two more generals to succeed in the first mission. Head to Tobigasu garrison in the south. Defeat Nagachika Kanamori on your way there. Once you're in Tobigasu, complete the mission by defeating Tadatsugu Sakai and the approaching Mitsuhide. From Tobigasu, cross the bridge and prepare to face Tadakatsu. Your next mission is to prevent him from entering the main camp. He's tough but with Shingen's Special skills Tadakatsu will be dead in no time. With Tadakatsu out of the way, head north where Hideyoshi is. Your mission is to prevent his entry to main camp as well. Fortunetly, he's not in hyper mode so defeating him doesn't take much time. After Hideyoshi is gone, the rain event happens. Shingen then orders a charge and the transport units appear in the most southern stronghold.
Grab the weapon and destroy Nobunaga.

Masamune Date

Name: Manhunters
Base Attack: +44
Element: Ice
Stats: Attack +37, Ride +36, Musou Charge +38, Attack Range +35

Stage: Showdown at Mikatagahara
Requirements: Defeat all enemy officers personally while protecting all of your allies.
Recommended level: +35

All right. Requirements for this weapon are quite simple. However, Interim save often because you don't want to start the stage from the beginning just because your BG or ally happened to deal the finishing blow on enemy officer. First head to northeast garrison, defeat Yoshinao Tokugawa and Ietsugu Sakai there. Before heading out to western garrison, secure the two strongholds near you. This is pretty important since you need to protect your allies. Proceed to west garrison and slay Yorinobu Tokugawa there. Secure the stronghold as well. Go back to central garrison and defeat Naotaka Ii along with Musashi. Now that the central garrison is your main camp, head to southwest corner and defeat Tadachika Okubo and Masanobu Honda. Don't enter to Hamamatsu Castle yet. First secure all the remaining enemy stronholds. When you have done that, lure Tadamasa Honda out of the castle and defeat him. Interim save and enter the castle. Take out Hanzo immediately and go after Ina in the north. Defeat her and hurry back to central garrison. Your allies are
probably struggling against Tadakatsu when you arrive there. He's hard to beat (what a surprise...) and has two generals to help him. Try to do your best and beat him as fast as you can since your allies are already struggling in west garrison. Head there and slay Hidetada Tokugawa. If all of your allies survived and you killed all enemy generals personally, the transport units spawn in the northwest stronghold. Finish them off and steal the Japan from Ieyasu.

No

Name: Delicious Venom
Base Attack: +44
Element: Wind
Stats: Musou +38, Defense +36, Speed +37, Musou Charge +36

Stage: Incident at Honnoji
Requirements: Succeed in the mission 'Rescue Nobutada Oda'. Keep Nobutada alive until Ranmaru is killed without triggering the mission 'Assist Ranmaru'.
Recommended level: +35

Exit Honnoji through the west gate and kill Nobuharu Tsuda. Mitsuhide launches the fire attack soon. Quickly head north towards Nijo Castle and defeat Kaneaki Mimaki. Face Hidemitsu Akechi in the north which triggers the mission to rescue Nobutada Oda. Defeat him to complete the mission. To ensure Nobutada's safety, defeat Junkei Tsutsui and Shigetomo Akechi as well. However, leave Sadaoki Ise alive. He should be able to keep Nobutada busy without defeating him. Interim save now. Return to Nobunaga's location and kill the officers near him. Finally Mitsuhide appears with reinforcements and Ranmaru starts heading towards his location. Defeat all approaching enemy officers and soldiers around Nobunaga. Before you go to Mitsuhide's location, Interim save. If you get too close to him and Ranmaru, you unlock the mission 'Assist Ranmaru'. Take distance from them and watch the fight
of the two. Ranmaru should die pretty quickly and Mitsuhide advances to Honnoji. The transport units will appear in the west stronghold which is southwest of Nijo Castle. Catch up with them and hurry back to Nobunaga to save the day.

Hanzo Hattori

Name: Chained Dragon
Base Attack: +44
Element: Demon
Stats: Attack +39, Speed +36, Dexterity +34, Attack Range +38

Stage: Siege of Ueda Castle (Dream)
Requirements: Defeat all Kotaro doubles and Yukimura before defeating Masayuki Sanada.
Recommended level: +40

Take the hidden path in the west and proceed north. Defeat Tomonobu Saito and Chikanori Suibara. Take Toishi Castle by defeating Yataro Onikojima. Kotaro appears in the south but at the same time the Spy units appear in the east. Stop them first to prevent the flood attack. Return to Kotaro and defeat him. When you approach Ueda Castle, three Kotaro clones appear. First head south and use the ninja route to reach the first Kotaro. Continue to southeast and rescue Ieyasu by defeating all enemy officers around him. Go back to ninja route and head to center. You'll find another Kotaro clone who is fightning alongside Yukimura. Lure him away from Yukimura and defeat him. Now you can try to defeat Yukimura himself. He's in super-hyper mode and extremely hard to beat. If you happen to find Attack x2, you can flinch him with basic attacks. Otherwise stun him with your R1+S attack and juggle him to death. Anyway, the last Kotaro clone can be found inside the castle. Enter to castle and defeat Nobuyuki Sanada. Proceed to underground main keep in the north to face the
last Kotaro. Defeat him and the valuable item appears just a bit north from your location. Grab it and take control of Ueda Castle.

Ranmaru Mori

Name: Iron Vengeance
Base Attack: +46
Element: Ice
Stats: Life +37, Defense +38, Speed +19, Musou Charge +37, Attack Range +14

Stage: Survival Mode - Keiji's Real Request
Requirements: Defeat Keiji Maeda in the mission 'Keiji's Real Request'. In order to unlock the mission, first you need to finish Mitsuhide Akechi's 3rd Request on floor 41 and then Keiji Maeda's 2nd Request on floor 31. When you have finished the missions, 'Keiji's Real Request' spawns on floor 46.
Recommended level: +35

You must reach the last floor in the mission 'Keiji's Real Request' to fight against Keiji. On the first four floors, you need to defeat a certain character(s) in order to advance:

1st floor - Katsuei Shibata
2nd floor - No
3rd floor - Oichi
4th floor - Hideyoshi and Nene

On the 5th floor your first task is to slay as many as enemies as you want to. Defeat 100 and Keiji states that he wants to fight against you. At first, he seems to be too easy but when his HP reaches critical he starts to fight seriously. When this happens, his HP recovers back to max and he's in super-hyper mode. He's now much harder to beat since normal attacks don't stagger him. Once you have taken him down, he drops a weapon box which contains the ultimate weapon. Grab the box and head upstairs.

Hideyoshi Toyotomi

Name: Simian Sansetsu
Base Attack: +42
Element: Lightning
Stats: Speed +60, Dexterity +40, Luck +60

Stage: Battle of Shizukatage
Requirements: Succeed in the mission 'Defeat Keiji Maeda'.
Recommended level: +25

This weapon is pretty simple to obtain. Only requirement is to succeed in a certain mission but you need to do a couple of things before you can trigger it. Defeat Yasumasa Sakuma first and proceed to first garrison in the north. Beat Katsumitsu Fuwa there. Ignore the other garrison for now and head to garrison where Toshiie Maeda is. First defeat Toshinaga Maeda in front of the gate. Enter the garrison and convince Toshiie Maeda to retreat. Once Toshiie has retreated, Keiji decides to move out but don't mind him yet. Morimasa Sakuma has already advanced and is probably at your main camp. Defeat him and Shogen Yamaji (who defected) first. Before facing Keiji, occupy the remaining garrisons and Interim save. At first, you are told to ignore Keiji but keep attacking him and when he has lost half of his HP you unlock the mission to defeat him. Succeed in mission and the transport units appear in the garrison where Toshiie was. Kill them before they escape with your weapon and defeat Katsuie Shibata.

Tadakatsu Honda

Name: Tonbo-giri
Base Attack +50
Element: Fire
Stats: Musou +15, Attack +37, Defense +53, Musou Charge +33

Stage: Tournament of Champions (Dream)
Requirements: Succeed in the missions 'Prevent Keiji/Musashi/Kojiro/Hanzo /Kotaro/Nene/Hideyoshi/Ieyasu/Masamune from entering the central/west/east garrison'.
Recommended level: +40

*See Kenshin Uesugi's 4th weapon for the recommended equipment.

Let's start with good news: You're playing as Tadakatsu who is extremely strong character and is able to annihilate enemies quickly. Then the bad news... this is a Dream stage and you need to be really really fast if you want to succeed in the requirements. Luck is also a big factor when trying to obtain this weapon. That's why giving a detailed walkthrough is hard but I'll try to do my best.

Your main goal is to prevent any of the unique characters from entering the garrisons. The garrisons are located in the center, northwest and southeast. The garrison where the enemy advances is always random. Because of this, you should always Interim save before new group of officers appear. If they happen to proceed toward wrong garrisons, you might not be able to stop them in time. When this happens, you need to reset the game and keep trying until all generals head to the garrisons where they are supposed to go in the first place. Also, defeat generals after the missions appear! If you defeat even one of them before you are told to, you won't get the weapon. The enterances of all three garrisons are protected by allied troops. Try to keep them alive as long as possible since they are able to buy some time for you. Say, if Hanzo advances to northwestern garrison, of which enterance is guarded by allied troops and Nene is advancing to southeastern garrison, of which enterance hasn't got a single soldier, it would be wise to go after Nene first. Anyway, I think I've said enough. Here's the method for obtaining the weapon...

You start from the central garrison. The first three groups appear in random order (my order was Miscreants, Swordsmen and Ninjas but it really doesn't matter). Hope that Miscreants appear first since you only need to stop one of them, Keiji. Head to his location in the southwest and defeat him. There are four officers left, defeat three of them. Lure the last one to southwestern corner and Interim save. Next group to appear are swordsmen or ninjas. Keep reseting until swordsmen appear. This time you need to prevent two of them from entering the garrisons, Musashi and Kojiro. If Musashi heads to southeastern garrison, reset. Defeat Kojiro first and go after Musashi. Again, leave one of the generic officers alive. Lure him near the northwestern gate of central garrison and Interim save. Defeat him and ninjas appear. Your targets are Kotaro, Hanzo and Nene. If Nene proceeds to southeastern garrison, reset. Defeat Kotaro first because he's closest to you. Go after Hanzo (not necessary if he decided to head to northwestern garrison) and take care of Nene before she causes more damage to your army. Again, leave one of the generics alive. Lure him near the northwestern gate of central garrison. Interim save and defeat him. The final group to appear are minor warlords. The generals who you want to prevent from entering the garrisons are Masamune, Ieyasu and Hideyoshi. Reset the game if Hideyoshi moves to southeastern garrison and Ieyasu doesn't advance west. These three are in hyper mode so they are slightly tougher than previous generals. Beat up Masamune right next to you and the approaching Ieyasu. Head towards Hideyoshi's location and prevent his entry to garrison. The transport units appear in the the stronghold south of central garrison's southern gate. The pain is finally over and you can finish the stage by slaying the remaining warlords.

Note: Since obtaining this weapon depends so much about luck, my method always
doesn't work. It pretty much depends how many soldiers there are standing in
front of the gate where the enemy general is heading to.

LittleDragonZ's Guide:
Simply get up to the point where the minor lords group appears, but before you do, make sure you save the game before defeating the last faceless officer. Hopefully he will be in the center as well.

Now what you want is for you to stay in the center garrison and for Masamune to head east, Ieyasu to go west and Hideyoshi to go east. It took me many times to think about this but I think its better this way. But you can also do Masamune and Iesyasu going west and Hideyoshi moving east, but you need to be very fast in doing so and defeat the two together. Anyway:

1. Get Masamune's attention since he will appear north. What you should then do is head through the center garrison whilst mounted. Take his horse if you can and go south to defeat Hideyoshi. This is because Masamune would be stupid enough to fight in the center instead of going east. And remember, it doesn't matter if either three fight in any of the other garrisons that they weren't intended to.

2. So after you kill Hideyoshi, head north and go west to defeat Ieyasu who will be very close to the west garrison. Why I'm saying go this way is because if you go south and north through the west garrison, you might find that Ieyasu will spot you and head towards you going through the base and stopping you from getting the weapon.

3. So lastly, once thats done just move to the middle and defeat Masamune remembering that he is not allowed to be the last officer available to you. You need another to be alive, obviously a faceless officer, in order to stop the special unit troops escape and not end the stage since he, Masamune Date, is a requirement.

Ina

Name: Coiled Viper
Base Attack: +44
Element: Ice
Stats: Attack +17, Defense +33, Dexterity +16, Musou Charge +36, Attack Range +38

Stage: Siege of Odawara Castle
Requirements: Defeat all enemy generals personally.
Recommended level: Any

This weapon is simple and easy to obtain. If you want to have some challenge, reset Ina and try this on Chaos. That's fun. Once again, using the Interim save often is useful because you fail to get the weapon if your ally or BG steals the officer KO. Start out by defeating all enemy troops near you. Hideyohi sends out the siege ramp soon. Defend it with the help of your allies. If it gets destroyed, you're going to waste your precious time. When the siege ramp is in place, defeat Naohide Matsuda immediately. Don't bother with the generals in the center. Go to south first, and defeat three generals there. Get back to center and deal with the two other generals there. Charge through the bomb corridor and head to north gate. Three more generals await you there. Kotaro is getting bored and orders three generals to attack your main camp. Return there and finish them off. Now you should head to southeast where the storehouse is located. You are ambushed by Ujitada Hojo and Yasuhiro Ogasawara in the storehouse. Defeat them and advance north. The doors close and ninjas ambush you. You need to defeat 100 opponents in order to advance. Keep going north to find two more generals who are fightning against Date army. Take care of them and finally it's time to head into Odawara Castle. Once inside the castle proceed east where bomb corridor is being guarded by two generals. Kill them as well and head upstairs. Only one more to go and that's Kotaro who ambushes you. Defeat him and the transport units appear right next to Hideyoshi. They're far away so you'd better hurry if you don't want to lose your weapon. Finish the stage by
defeating Ujiyasu and Ujimasa Hojo.

Ieyasu Tokugawa

Name: Quake Maker
Base Attack: +48
Element: Fire
Stats: Musou +17, Attack +35, Defense +38, Speed +36, Luck +19

Stage: Battle of Sekigahara
Requirements: Defeat all enemy generals personally.
Recommended level: +35

Same requirements as for Ina's weapon but this time you don't need to rush so much. Also, you only need to protect yourself and the main camp. So don't worry about your allies. Go after Hiroie Kikkawa and Hidemoto Mori first. Note that if you defeat Ekei Ankokuji before them they defect and that's isn't allowed to happen. Your next target is Ekei who is in the south. Head to center of the battlefield and slay all generals there (Hideie Ukita, Teruzumi Akashi Shigemasa Toda, Tamaehiro Hiratsuka, Yoshitsugu Otani, Yukinaga Konishi, Satoie Gamo). Ginchiyo has already atttcked your main camp so get back there and kill her as well. In order to defeat Hideaki Kobayakawa, Magobei Fuse must die. It may take some time but lure him to fight against Masaie Natsuka and wait. Eventually Magobei will be killed and Hideaki comes out of his garrison. Mitsunari orders Western army to attack and they all move
to frontlines. Now all you need to do is to slay remaining generals and the transport units appear in the northwestern stronghold. Grab the weapon and kill Mitsunari.

Mitsunari Ishida

Name: Golden Frill
Base Attack: +45
Element: Ice
Stats: Musou +36, Defense +38, Musou Charge +33, Range +37

Stage: Edo Campaign (Dream)
Requirements: Succeed in the missions 'Rescue Hideie Ukita', 'Open Edo Castle's east gate', 'Defeat the traitors quickly', 'Defeat all enemies within the castle', 'Protect Ekei Ankokuji' and 'Prevent Kotaro Fuma from entering the main camp'. Finally, enter to Edo Castle from the north enterance.
Recommended level: +40

You start from the northeast corner. Head to north gate of Edo Castle first and defeat Naotaka Ii. Hideie Ukita is lured to castle and ambushed by Masamune's rifle units. Wait until you get the mission to rescue him and defeat Shigenaga Katakura. Go to northwest corner of the castle courtyard, secure the stronghold and defeat Masanobu Honda there. Exit from the north gate and head to east side of Edo Castle. Your next
mission is to open east gate of Edo Castle, which is guarded by Yoshiaki Mogami. When the gate opens, Kobayakawa (surprise, surprise), Mori and Kikkawa defect to Eastern Army and you find out Ekei Ankokuji was captured (you need to rescue him later). Your mission is to defeat these three before your allies lose hope. Take out Kobayakawa who is right next to you, go south and defeat Hidemoto Mori, along with Nagachika Kanamori. Only Hiroie Kikkawa remains, who is at west gate with Terumasa Ikeda. When you have punished all traitors, return back to east gate of
Edo Castle (because Ieyasu locked all other gates) and before you enter to courtyard, make sure you have secured all the strongholds outside. Once you have entered to courtyard, your mission is to destroy all officers within that area. Mitsunari also comments that Ekei is held somewhere inside the castle. But first, head to north and you find Yasumasa Sakakibara. Defeat him and secure the stronghold. Open the northern inner gate by defeating Defense Captain. Head back to south and
defeat Ietsugu Sakai. Cross the bridge and you'll find Takatora Todo, defeat him as well. There's Defense Captain close to you. You'll find Ekei Ankokuji from the gate behind him and he needs to be escorted back to Toyotomi main camp. Ieyasu's ninja officer Toranosuke Aoyama appears. Defeat him to protect Ekei. Open Edo Castle's south gate, defeat Shigezane Date and Ekei should be able to reach the main camp by himself. Proceed to the west side of courtyard, open the western gate, secure the stronghold and annihilate Naomasa Ii. Kotaro appears in north and heads toward Hideyori (did you really think he was defeated in Odawara?). Exit from Edo Castle's west gate and when you approach Kotaro you need to prevent him from reaching your main camp. Complete this last mission and finally it's time to head inside the Edo Castle.

Now pay attention: You must enter Edo Castle from the north enterance and keep going until a fence blocks your path. Soon Ekei says: "If I remember correctly, the main keep is connected to another keep, smaller keep." After this quote, you get the valuable item report. It's on the bridge, which connects inner and main keep. Destroy Hideyasu Yuki and Hidetada Tokugawa before you head to smaller keep. Now all you need to do is to defeat remaining enemy officers (Hidemune Date, Masamune and Tadakatsu) and collect your valuable item (you can't miss it) before
killing Ieyasu Tokugawa.

Nagamasa Azai

Name: King's Honor
Base Attack: +45
Element: Lightning
Stats: Attack +35, Defense +17, Horse +35, Musou Charge +56

Stage: Defense of Odani Castle
Requirements: Succeed in the mission 'Defeat all enemy officers at Mt. Jizo'. Keep most of your allies alive and get rid of all enemy generals except Nobutada Oda and No. Complete the requirements within 10 minutes and wait for Nagamasa to order full assault.
Recommended level: +25

This is easy weapon to obtain since it's ok if you don't get all officer KOs. Just concentrate on keeping your allies alive and completing the missions. You start from the northeast corner. Go west and defeat the first two officers you encounter, Saizo Kani and Hidemasa Hori. Keep going west and enter the garrison. Complete the first mission by defeating the two officers there. Exit Mt. Jizo from the south enterance and you'll face Ranmaru and Ujisato Gamo. Defeat them and Mitsuhide who appeared right next to you. Then, hurry to central garrison which Hideyoshi blew up and prevent his entry to Inner Ward. Also, when you enter the garrison, defeat the three Oda officers who ambush you. Now head to Kingo Ward in the southeast and rescue Tsunachika Kaiho from Katsuie Shibata. Proceed westwards and defeat Kazumasa Takigawa and Narimasa Sassa. Return to Minor Ward in the north and you'll find the last two Oda officers. Defeat them and Nagamasa orders his army to charge. Assuming you did everything within 10 minutes, the transport units appear in the west stronghold south of Mt.Jizo. Catch up with them and slay Nobunaga in the name of honor and love.

NOTE: Make sure you defeat Hideyoshi, Mitsuhide and Katsuie personally, just in case.

Sakon Shima

Name: Wrecking Blade
Base Attack: +46
Element: Wind
Stats: Life +18, Attack +36, Defense +37, Musou Charge +34, Attack Range +12

Stage: Battle of Sekigahara
Requirements: Defeat all enemy generals personally while keeping all of your allies alive.
Recommended level: +35

It's important to remember that you don't need to protect or kill the defecting units (Kikkawa, Mori and Kobayakawa). However, it's recommended that you kill them in case they defect. Start by defeating the two closest enemy generals, Nagamasa Kuroda and Sadatsugu Tsutsui. Once you have defeated them take out Eastern Army's cannons. With cannons captured, your allies have better chances against enemy. Before Magobei Fuse shows up, defeat as many enemy generals in center as you can (Takatora Todo, Yoshiaki Kato, Masanori Fukushima and Yoshimasa Tanaka).

Tokugawa sends his 2nd wave, but you can ignore it for now. When Magobei Fuse appears, go after him immediately (otherwise Kobayakawa defects and this really lowers your morale). Now head to northeast garrison, where Ankokuji, Kikkawa and Mori are. There you have plenty of generals to defeat: Yoshinaga Asano, Terumasa Ikeda, Kazutoyo Yamanouchi and Hanzo Hattori who is heading towards you. However, before you go to help Ekei, Interim save. If you get too near the garrison, Mori and Kikkawa defect. Try to hit the enemy generals at least once, so that they start to follow you and lure them away from the garrison. Defeat all 4 officers and seal the stronghold in the north to ensure Ekei Ankokuji's safety. Ekei should be able
to care of himself now. Your next goal is to defeat rest of the enemy generals in the center or try to prevent Ina from reaching your main camp (but it doesn't matter if she reaches there).

With Ina and enemy generals in the center being defeated, head to Ginchiyo's location. There you should find Tadaoki Hosokawa. Defeat him and only Tadakatsu Honda remains. If Tadakatsu is surrounded by your allies, Interim Save to make sure that he doesn't kill any of your allies and you deal the final blow on him. Transport units should appear soon if you defeated all enemy generals personally and your all allies survived. Go get your weapon and finish the stage by defeating Ieyasu Tokugawa.

Yoshihiro Shimazu

Name: Beast Crusher
Base Attack: +48
Element: Wind
Stats: Attack +34, Defense +35, Speed +54, Musou Charge +18

Stage: Struggle at Sekigahara
Requirements: First succeed in the missions 'Rescue Mitsunari Ishida' and 'Rescue Sakon Shima', then lastly complete mission 'Rescue Ginchiyo Tachibana'. Defeat all enemy generals personally as well.
Recommended level: +30

You can't afford to lose any of your allies so fast horse is extremely useful in this stage. You also need to slay all generals personally so once again saving often is recommended. You start from the center and you should note there are 5 enemy officers around you (Masanori Fukushima, Yoshinaga Asano, Tadayoshi Matsudaira, Sadatsugu Tsutsui and Yoshiaki Kato). Defeat all of them and then proceed to southwest where Mitsunari is. Rescue Mitsunari by defeating the three officers surrounding him. Head to Sakon's location. When Yoshihiro mentions that Sakon is being surrounded, the gates of the south garrison open and Hanzo is told to attack Mitsunari. Catch up with Hanzo before he reaches the main camp and defeat him. Ride back to Sakon's location and kill the three enemy officers. This time Ieyasu sends out Tadakatsu. Proceed north from your current position and engage with Tadakatsu. He's a tough guy to beat like always so be prepared. Last ally who you need to rescue is Ginchiyo in the northwest garrison. Charge through the enemy ranks and smash the skulls of the three officers near her. However, Ina is still left
from Tokugawa generals and she's send after Gicnhiyo. Smash her skull as well and return to center with Ginchiyo. Soon Hidetada Tokugawa arrives with reinforcements to aid Tokugawa army. Destroy all officers (there are 8 in total) and if you have done everything right, the transport units appear in the northwestern stronghold. Hammer them and crush Ieyasu's helmet to win the battle.

Ginchiyo Tachibana

Name: Heaven's Bite
Base Attack: +44
Element: Lightning
Stats: Life +18, Musou +18, Attack +20, Defense +17, Speed +18, Luck +19, Musou Charge +20, Range +17

Stage: Conquest for Kyushu
Requirements: First defeat three Shimazu brothers: Iehisa, Yoshihiro and Toshihisa. And when you enter the Shimazu HQ, defeat them in order: Iehisa, Toshihisa and Yoshihiro.
Recommended level: Any

This is one of the easiest weapons to obtain in game, no doubt about that. Cross the bridge and defeat Iehisa Shimazu immediately. Take out Nobumitsu Sarawatari as well (and Tadamoto Niiro if he appeared). Head to garrison in the east, defeat Arinobu Yamada and Tadanaga Shimazu. Proceed to Tsuruga Castle in the south and defeat Yoshihiro. Exit Tsuruga Castle from the eastern enterance and you are ambushed by Toshihisa Shimazu, Hisatora Ei and Tadatsune Shimazu. Defeat all three and attack the Shimazu HQ. Yoshihiro, Iehisa and Toshihisa ambush you. First you must defeat Iehisa, then Toshihisa and lastly Yoshihiro. If you did everything right the transport units appear north of Tsuruga Castle. Grab your weapon, give a hand to your allies and defeat the last member of Shimazu clan, Yoshihisa.

Kanetsugu Naoe

Name: Evil's Bane
Base Attack: +45
Element: Fire
Stats: Musou +56, Defense +38, Musou Charge +51

Stage: Last Stand Against Ieyasu (Dream)
Requirements: Defeat Masamune, Hanzo, Ina and Tadakatsu personally without losing a single ally.
Recommended level: +40

Dream stage... and not easy one either. 3rd weapon with high attack boost is a great help here. You start from the northwest garrison and are immediately surrounded by enemy. Defeat Chikayoshi Hiraiwa and Tadasuke Okubo who are approaching from east and Nobumasa Okudaira in the west. Ieyasu has by now set up camp at Zenkoji and Kagekatsu Uesugi along with Keiji appears in the northeast corner. Unfortunetly, they are ambushed by Date generals. Defeat Katakura Kojuro and Masakage Rusu near Kagekatsu. Head to Keiji's location and help him to beat Masanari Naito. Masamune himself has arrived and attacks Kagekatsu. Rescue him by killing Masamune and Shigezane Date. Return to Kaizu Castle and defeat the remaining generals there. More Tokugawa reinforcements appear. Advance southwest from Kaizu Castle and enter the garrison where Tadakatsu is. Slay him and Kazutoyo Yamanouchi. Now head to center garrison where Hanzo is. Defeat him as fast as you can (ignore other generals) and head to south garrison. Kill Ina and if all of your allies are still alive, the transport units appear in the north stronghold just north of the central garrison. Get the weapon quickly and finish the stage.

Nene

Name: Devil Feathers
Base Attack: +42
Element: Ice
Stats: Defense +37, Speed +38, Luck +38, Range +36

Stage: Battle of Komaki-Nagakute
Requirements: Succeed in the missions 'Rescue the detached unit', 'Defeat Yasumasa Sakakibara and seize control of Iwasaki Castle', 'Prevent Hanzo Hattori from entering the main camp' and 'Protect Iwasaki Castle from Tadakatsu Honda and Ina'.
Recommended level: +25

Start by taking out Nobumasa Okudaira. Proceed to southeast immediately because the detached units gets into trouble pretty soon and only lasts couple of seconds. Rescue them from Tokugawa officers and then capture Iwasaki Castle. Soon Hanzo appears in the north but at the same time Tadakatsu and Ina attack Iwasaki Castle. First you should go after Hanzo. Head back to center battlefield and take the ninja route to reach him. Defeat him quickly and return to Iwasaki. Tadakatsu and Ina are a formidable pair but with the help of your allies you should be able to take care of them. Once you have completed the last mission, transport units appear in the west stronghold located in the center battlefield. Don't let them get away and finish the stage normally.

Kotaro Fuma

Name: Thorns of Peril
Base Attack: +45
Element: Demon
Stats: Life +18, Attack +37, Speed +38, Dexterity +17, Musou Charge +33

Stage: Defense of Odawara Castle (Dream)
Requirements: Complete the missions 'Destroy the Siege Ramp', 'Defend the enterance of Odawara Castle, 'Protect Yasuhiro Ogasawara', 'Rescue Ujiteru Hojo', 'Prevent the destruction of the main keep' and 'Rescue Ujimasa Hojo' (order doesn't matter)
Recommended level: +35

The difficulty for obtaining this weapon is overrated in my opinion. Kotaro is fast and strong character so it really isn't that hard to obtain this weapon under level 40. All you need is a strong 3rd weapon with Attack boost and possibly Awakening 3 skill. But let's get to the point... Jump over the wall, proceed north and defeat the first general you encounter, Yoshitaka Kuki. Wait for the siege ramp to appear and destroy it when the mission to do so pops up on the screen. Head to enterance of the Odawara Castle and succeed in the mission by defeating the two enemy officers. Keep going north and rescue Ujiteru Hojo from the three Toyotomi officers. Go all the way back to south and then west. Yasuhiro Ogasawara desperetly needs your help in the southwest garrison. Defeat Hideie Ukita and Terumasa Ikeda but try to avoid killing soldiers. Your next mission is to escort Ogasawara back to castle but don't do this mission yet. Just make sure enemy soldiers keep him busy. You, however, should hurry back to Odawara because your leader doesn't last long against Nene. The enterance gate of the castle is still locked so head back to ninja route. Ignore the Tokugawa officers in the courtyard. You can deal with them later.

Before you enter the castle, Interim save. Next thing you need to do is to prevent the destruction of the main keep. However, the location of explosive kegs and fire ninjas is always random. Find them all quickly (reset if it takes too long time) and rescue Ujimasa from Nene. Ieyasu and his army are still a problem. So defeat them to succeed in the mission 'Rescue Ujimasa Hojo'. Ogasawara may have entered the south garrison already and is fightning against Sakon. Head back to his location (use the ninja route again to exit the courtyard), defeat Sakon and escort Ogasawara back to castle. If you succeed in all missions, the valuable item appears on the first floor of Odawara Castle. Grab the weapon and show Hideyoshi that it's not wise to mess with "Chaos".

Musashi Miyamoto

Name: Mastery & Vision
Base Attack: +48
Element: Demon
Stats: Attack +48, Musou Charge +35, Range +50

Stage: Chaos in Kyoto
Requirements: Succeed in the mission 'Prevent Ieyasu Tokugawa from escaping'.
Recommended level: +20

I don't think you're going to have hard time with this weapon. The requirements are simple and you're playing as Musashi who is one of the strongest characters in game. You start from the center of the map, near the alley and Ieyasu is in the northwest corner and moves east. He actually escapes pretty quickly if you don't go after him immediately. Head east from your position and proceed north. When you catch up with Ieyasu, he should be about halfway. He has one officer to aid him, Yoshinao Tokugawa. Get rid of him first. Although you are surrounded by enemy troops and Ieyasu is in hyper-mode, he's still quite easy to beat. Once you have defeated Ieyasu, the transport units come out from the east gate. Grab the weapon and protect Hideyori in order to finish the stage.

[size=7]XL[/size]

Toshiie Maeda

Name: Dragon's Bite
Base Attack: +45
Element: Fire
Stats: Attack +37, Speed +38, Musou Charge +38, Range +39

Stage: Annexation of Shikoku
Requirements: Within 6 minutes succeed in the missions 'Defeat Chikanao Hisatake', 'Capture landing point', 'Capture south cannon fortress' and 'Capture north cannon fortress'.

LoW's tip: This is not hard weapon to obtain. Just make sure you kill the required enemy generals when the mission pops up and not before.

Gtwon's Helpful Hints: None really. Just make sure Toshiie at least has his level 3 musou attack and a decent 3rd weapon. And bring a horse.

Katsuie Shibata

Name: Heaven & Earth
Base Attack: +46
Element: Lightning
Stats: Life +39, Attack +17, Defense +38, Speed +38, Musou Charge +17

Stage: Battle of Okehazama
Requirements: Within 10 minutes succeed in the missions 'Defeat Ujitoshi Sena', 'Defeat Motonobu Okabe', 'Protect Washizu Garrison', 'Protect Marune Garrison', 'Rendezvous with Hideyoshi Hashiba', 'Protect the Peasants' and 'Defeat Hanzo Hattori'. Defeat 400 enemies as well (no time limit).

LoW's tip: Avoid getting many KO's and always aim for enemy generals only. This way you'll avoid praise quotes. When you get 'Protect the Peasants' mission, push Peasant with your horse and he moves much faster. Once you've completed all missions, get the remaining KOs.

Gtown's Helpful Hints: Make use of Katsuie's elemental ability, as you'll need to make quick work of the generals. Use his horse musou when going into a crowd of enemies, and try to refrain from using his normal musou if it is at level 3. Also, pause the stage EVERY time they talk, be it officer defeated or even 50 kill quotes. This saves you a lot of time.

Motochika Chosokabe

Name: Golden Ginkgo
Base Attack: +45
Element: Lightning
Stats: Musou +38, Defense +18, Musou Charge +35, Range +51

Stage: Battle of Kuzegawa
Requirements: Within 8 minutes succeed in the mission 'Block the Eastern Army's escape route'. Defeat Kojiro, Tadakatsu, Ina and Hanzo once they show up (no time limit).

Gtown's Helpful Hints: Before the mission to close the escape route will show up, you must kill at least one general and listen to Sakon ramble. So just pause through that and get moving. Kojiro will show up right above the escape point so just take care of him then. Immediately after Ina, Hanzo, and Tadakatsu will show up. Make quick work of them and you've got the weapon. P.S. Make sure to keep you're allies alive or you'll lose the stage.

Kojiro Sasaki

Name: Deathly Shadow
Base Attack: +42
Element: Ice
Stats: Musou +37, Attack +36, Musou Charge +20, Range +56

Stage: Chaos in Kyoto
Requirements: Make Musashi appear within 10 minutes. Defeat 300 enemies (no time limit).

LoW's guide: Take out all Vagabonds near Ieyasu and head northeast. Defeat Harunaga Ono and Yoshinaga Asano and keep going east. Defeat the four Toyotomi officers who arrive as reinforcements to secure an escape route for Ieyasu. Head to south and wait for Vagabond to appear. Defeat him and more Vagabonds appear. Your next task is to defeat them and get information about Hideyori. Keep defeating Vagabonds until Kiyomasa Kato appears. If you managed to gather information of Hideyori, find him quickly from the eastern path. Otherwise defeat Kiyomasa and Yukimura appears along with Hideyori. Just ignore Yukimura and go straight for Hideyori. When you defeat him, he reappears in the southwest corner. Go there and wait for Musashi to arrive. If you still haven't got 300 KOs (which I doubt), get them now and Kojiro's 4th weapon is yours.

Gtown's Helpful Hints: Though it is possible to do so without it, you'll really want to pause while they talk in this one. Kojiro will run his trap for almost an entire minute. And combining the ice element with his musou attack will take generals down in a flash.

Yoshimoto Imagawa

Name: Noble Kemari
Base Attack: +42
Element: Lightning
Stats: Defense +36, Speed +34, Dexeterity +35, Luck +37

Stage: Battle of Kawanakajima
Requirements: Keep Kansuke Yamamoto alive and defeat Kagetsuna Naoe, Takahiro Hojo and Sadanaga Sanbonji who arrive as enemy reinforcements from Zenkouji.

LoW's guide: Clear the center area of enemies when the stage begins. Wait until the Takeda's pincer attack fails and Kenshin's moves to southwest corner. Once this happens, first wave of enemy reinforcements appear near Takeda main camp. Defeat all enemy generals and the second wave should appear in Zenkoji shortly. Kansuke decides to move out, so hurry to the south and defeat all enemy generals personally in order to get valuable item report.

Gracia

Name: Sacred Gown
Base Attack: +42
Element: Wind
Stats: Musou +39, Speed +34, Dexterity +36, Range +39

Stage: Battle of Osaka Bay
Requirements: Within 10 minutes succeed in the missions 'Seize control of the south ship' and 'Defend the transport units'.

LoW's guide: Head to south ship first and defeat Murashige Araki (NOTE: Defeat him after you get the mission to seize control of the south ship). From the south ship go directly north. Defeat all enemy soldiers, reserve captains and Hideyoshi along the way. Once you reach Tsuneoki Ikeda's location, defeat him and head to east. Defeat Katsuie, Ujisato Gamo and all soldiers in the northeastern corner. By now Terumoto Mori has arrived with the transport unit. Simply escort him to northeast corner before time limit is up and you get the valuable item report.

You're right, gtown. But truth to be told, I had forgotten the whole guide >_>. I discovered it yesterday when I was going through my old folders. Just proves the fact that visitors rarely use the guides on KW's main site...

I might add 5th weapons once SW2XL is released overseas, but it depends how much trouble people are going to have with them (after all, the requirements for obtaining the 5th weapons are told in the game itself).

Ok, thanks for saying that. Unfortunetly, it may still take 2-4 weeks before I get the game myself and when that happens, I have a feeling that many of you have already gotten most of the weapons.

But no need to worry, I'm pretty sure that someone on GameFAQs is going to post the exact requirements asap.

Katsuie Shibata 4th
Stage: Battle of Okehazama
Requirements: Complete all missions, kill reinforcements, and get 400 kills within 10 minutes of the stage starting. Note that if you get spotted by the enemy you won't get the weapon. And you must personally kill all of the reinforcement generals.
Helpful Hints: Make use of Katsuie's elemental ability, as you'll need to make quick work of the generals. Use his horse musou when going into a crowd of enemies, and try to refrain from using his normal musou if it is at level 3. Also, pause the stage EVERY time they talk, be it officer defeated or even 50 kill quotes. This saves you a lot of time.
Name: Heaven & Earth
Element: Lightning
Stats: Life- 39; Atk- 17; Def- 38; Spd- 38; MuCh- 17

Katsuie Shibata 5th
Stage: Battle of Shizukagate
Requirements: Secure all of the eastern garrisons and kill 300 before your allies think about betraying you.
Helpful Hints: Again, make liberal use of his elemental skill. The time constraints aren't as bad but still work fast.
Name: Epoch Makers
Element: Lightning
Stats: Atk- 55; Life- 53; MuCh- 37

Kojiro Sasaki 4th
Stage: Chaos in Kyoto
Requirements: Acheive 300 kills and make Musashi appear within 10 minutes.
Helpful Hints: Though it is possible to do so without it, you'll really want to pause while they talk in this one. Kojiro will run his trap for almost an entire minute. And combining the ice element with his musou attack will take generals down in a flash.
Name: Deathly Shadow
Element: Ice
Stats: Musou- 37; Atk- 36; MuCh- 20; Rng- 56

Kojiro Sasaki 5th
Stage: Kojiro's Dream
Requirements: Kill 500 and make Nobunaga appear in 12:30.
Helpful Hints: Again, you'll want to pause when they talk. And remember to rack up the kills while completing the missions. Nobunaga won't appear until you've killed Hideyoshi and Katsuie twice. And that comes after the other missions.
Name: Eternal Sleep
Element: Ice
Stats: Def- 37; Spd- 55; Dex- 53

Toshiie Maeda 4th
Stage: Battle of Shikoku
Requirements: Complete all of the missions as quickly as possible.
Helpful Hints: None really. Just make sure Toshiie at least has his level 3 musou attack and a decent 3rd weapon. And bring a horse.
Name: Dragon's Bite
Element: Fire
Stats: Atk- 37; Spd- 38; MuCh- 38; Rng- 39

Toshiie Maeda 5th
Stage: Toshiie's Dream
Requirements: Recruit as many allies as possible before you run out of time. It's about 10 minutes.
Helpful Hints: Since this is his dream stage you'll probably want his fourth before you go after this one. Bring a fast horse as well. And as soon as the stage starts go after the the generals in the corners. Kill the underlings before the clan heads though. And don't forget to pick up the rewards if you have time.

The topic title has been changed. Unfortunetly, I don't have the game so I'm unable to confirm the requirements for new 4th and 5th weapons.

However, I could add the requirements which you guys post here, if it's okay for you. That way we could speed up things.

Same here. I'd be glad to help you out LoW, this needs to be a team effort so it can be done quicker instead of one person pressed for time.

Gtown, you might want to post the stats for the weapons later as well, unless you just dont want to spoil it for those who get them. Just a suggestion.

Yeah, I wll bro. Just that I'm in the library right now and can't remember what exactly is on them. All I remember is that Tsohiie and Kojiro get alot of defense while Katsuie gets alot of attack.

Edit:


Mitsuhide 5th
Stage: Battle of Yamazaki
Requirements: Secure Mt. Tenno and kill Magoichi and Nene as quickly as possible.
Helpful Hints: As soon as the stage starts go up the side of Mt. Tenno that that only has the one general at the top. As soon as you kill Mitsunari head for Magoichi. DO NOT wait for the mission to kill him. Then immediately head for Nene. Afterwards you'll get the message.
Name: Liberator
Element: Wind
Stats: Atk- 36; Spd- 35; Dex- 36; Rng- 37

Much appreciated, my boys. I'll be sure to give you a hand when I'll get my copy.

I'll add those guides tomorrow. You two get the credit, of course ^_^.

5th Weapons

TACHIBANA GINCHYO

Raging Tempest
Base Atk - 44
Element - Wind
Spd +38
Dex +54
Rng +34

Pursuit of Yoshihiro
Immediately take out the enemy cannons (will post names of officers later)
Then, defeat 300 enemies. Appears in special crate by Mt. Tenno's Eastern cannon.

SAIKA MAGOICHI

Sengoku Sniper
Base Atk - 45
Element - Lightning
Mus +36
Def +52
MuCh +54

Assault on the Saika
Succeed in the following missions as quickly as possible;
- Rescue Tsuchihashi Morishige
- Rescue Satake Yoshimasa
- Rescue Horinouch Ujiyoshi
- Rescue Saika Magoroku
Special crate appears by gate south of the central garrison.
NOTE: Toshiie is right behind Hideyoshi. After you defeat Hideyoshi avoid battle with Toshiie until the mission to defeat him and rescue Morishige is prompted. If you defeat Toshiie before hand, the weapon will be lost.

ODA NOBUNAGA

Muramasa
Base Atk - 46
Element - Death
Mus +57
MuCh +39
Rng +57

Incident at Honnoji
Rescue Oda Nobutada by defeating the officers around him. Defeat 400 enemies.
Special crate appears Northeast of Nijo Castle in an alley.
NOTE: Nobutada gets surrounded very quickly, so you may just want to take your horse and rush to his side after the enemy opens the gates to Nijo Castle. Keeping Ranmaru and Noh alive doesn't seem to matter

Keiji Maeda 5th
Stage: Keiji's Dream
Requirements: Keep Yukimura and Kanetsugu alive. Within 10 minutes defeat all playable characters. They are Hanzo, Kojiro, Musashi, Masamune, and Yoshihiro.
Helpful Hints: Don't worry about Yukimura and Kanetsugu, they can take care of themselves. Just make sure to kill all generals quickly, and try not to linger and kill a bunch of peons.
Name: Winged Serpent
Element: Fire
Stats: Musou- 40; Dex- 32; MuCh- 36; Rng- 35

Yukimura Sanada 5th
Stage: Defense of Ueda Castle
Requirements: Succeed in the flood attack. Defeat all 3 of the Hanzos within 3 minutes of them appearing.
Helpful Hints: Just follow the guy that does the flood attack around and protect him. If you don't he more than likely will not make it. Once Hanzo makes his clones, immediately go after them. Make good use of Yukimura's new charge attack, as it does a ton of damage.
Name: Tiger's Blood
Element: Lightning
Stats: Musou- 35; Atk-36; Def-34; Ride- 35

Tadakatsu Honda 5th
Stage: Battle of Sekigahara
Requirements: Stop the enemy cannons from firing and kill 300 within 10 minutes. Yeah I know, not really fare is it?
Helpful Hints: There really aren't any. Just make sure to kill off the cannons in time. It's easy to get wrapped up in totally raping the western army, especially with his new charge attack.
Name: Demon's Tongue
Element: Shura
Stats: Atk- 55; Life- 38; Rng- 52

Sakon Shima 5th
Stage: Sakon's Dream
Requirements: Within 15 minutes defeat all playable characters. They are Hanzo, Mitsuhide, Katsuie, Tadakatsu, and Hideyoshi.
Helpful Hints: You must complete the missions to get all of the playable characters to show up. Kill Ieyasu when he trys to run the first time. You'll waste your time if you go around trying to kill everyone on the stage while he runs away. And definitely use Sakon's new charge against Tadakatsu. Even with his 4th weapon, Honda can still be a major pain in the butt.
Name: Fiery Destruction
Element: Ice
Stats: Atk- 36; Life- 34; Ride- 37; Spd- 38

Kanetsugu Naoe 5th
Stage: Battle of Hasedo
Requirements: Keep all allies alive until the Mogami sends in the second wave, and get 300 kills within 12 minutes.
Helpful Hints: DO NOT leave these idiots alone. They will die. And try to bring a horse. You'll definitely want it when the weapon shows up. And don't use his new charge attack in crowds, it is a waste of time.
Name: Truth & Honor
Element: Ice
Stats: Musou- 56; Atk- 38; MuCh- 51

Musashi Miyamoto 5th
Stage: Musashi's Dream
Requirements: Acheive 700 kills before Kojiro arrives.
Helpful Hints: If I remember correctly Kojiro won't show up until you beat both Sakon and Tadakatsu so just wail on the enemies until you get 700, kill Honda, get the weapon, and finish the stage.
Name: Courage & Conviction
Element: Fire
Stats: Musou- 48; Def- 55; Rng- 36

Edit: stats coming soon. I can you though, Keiji and Musashi got the shaft. Never thought I'd see it happen to either of them though. <_<

Yes, you'd need SW2 to unlock the original characters' 5ths. You have to unlock them in story mode, and you can only play story mode with the SW2 originals by loading the game disc.
