This guide was made by Buster WolfBuster Wolf.

This will list the requirements to get the characters Lv. 10 weapon as well as strategy if one is needed, these are an alternate method compared to the vanilla version if you can do mixjoy you can choose which method to do.

  • The characters weapon must be Lv 9.
  • The difficulty must be set to Hard or Expert.
  • The stage won't be listed, but it is the characters Legend Mode unless you are going for an Edit Characters weapon.
  • Be careful if using the Lightning Orb for elemental attacks as it can take your kill which won't count for weapons.
  • If using 2 players as long as one player meets the requirements the weapon will appear.
  • I never mention what Harness to use, but it will always be Shadow Harness due to not being knocked off when struck.

Shu Weapons

Zhao Yun

Power: +55
Restrictions: No bodyguards.
Requirement: Defeat Cao Ren, Xu Huang, Cheng Yu, Xu Zhu & Xiahou Yuan in under 5 minutes.
Suggested Items: Power Rune, Tiger Amulet, Wind Scroll + your choices.
Cheng Yu is Xu Zhu's sub-officer so make sure you kill him before he runs away if you beat Xu Zhu before him.

Guan Yu

Weapon Name: Blue Moon Dragon
Power: +57
Restrictions: No items.
Requirement: Get 150 KOs in under 4 minutes.

Zhang Fei

Weapon Name: Viper Blade

Zhuge Liang

Weapon Name: Peacock Feather

Restrictions: No bodyguards.
Requirement: Defeat Yue Ying 6 times, each time quickly enough to get a "won by a wide margin!" message.
Suggested Items: Orb: Ice, Power Rune, Tiger Amulet, Wind Scroll, Elixir, Secret of Orbs + your choice.
A "won by a wide margin!" message will happen if you take less than 2 minutes to defeat Yue Ying in each appearance.

Liu Bei

Power: +52
Restrictions: None.
Requirement: Defeat 4 enemy officers in under 4 minutes while killing less than 15 peasants.
Suggested Items: Power Rune, Tiger Amulet, Tortoise Amulet, Peacock Urn, Bodyguard Manual.
One of the few stages where bodyguards are useful as KOs they get do not count towards yours. If you are in a group with peasants you will want to wait for your bodyguards to defeat them so you don't accidentally do it. If you get the cutscene with Liu Bei from killing too many peasants you will lose the weapon. Alternatively you can get player 2 to do the requirement as the KOs against peasants only count for Liu Bei.

Gan Ning appears on the right side of the stage when 2 minutes have passed while Lu Meng appears on the left at 2 minutes 40 seconds. Zhou Tai appears at 4 minutes 30 seconds into the stage or if all other Wu officers are defeated before that point.

Sima Yi

Weapon Name: Dark Feather
Power: +50
Restrictions: No bodyguards.
Requirement: Trigger the rain via troop killing and defeat Wei Yan in under 2 minutes & 30 seconds of it happening.
Suggested Items: Power Rune, Tiger Amulet, Wind Scroll, Elixir, Master of Musou + your choice.
I don't mention a KO count which would be 26 due to the fact that if you use your Musou there is the chance that some enemies will get knocked into each other which will result in a kill that isn't added to your counter, rain will automatically happen if 5 minutes pass. You will want to save when the rain starts as Wei Yan can be quite hard to deal with. After getting the weapon message you can choose to grab your horse (Shadow Runner recommended) and finish by going to the retreat point.

While the Gate Captains will respawn you only have to defeat them once. For the Gate Captain near Zhou Tai wait for him to start patrolling so you can move down and defeat it then move North of Cheng Pu without getting spotted when Zhou Tai makes his return trip. For the Gate Captain by Ling Tong if he is inside wait for him to leave by being in the South space near it then defeat it, Lu Meng will head for it so go North and not get detected by him or Ling Tong and make your way to the final Gate Captain. If you get detected, but are able to defeat the last Gate Captain before the dialogue finishes you will get the weapon. Once the weapon message appears if doesn't matter if you get caught.

Sun Ce

Weapon Name: Overlord
Power: +54
Restrictions: No bodyguards.
Requirement: Defeat the real Yu Ji in under 3 minutes.
It is okay for the real Yu Ji to dissappear once, having the item Art of War is recommended so you can use the War God Axe effect for a full minute and abuse the the Imperial Seal to deal loads of damage to the real one when he returns. The real Yu Ji will run away if he got hit and wasn't defeated within 10 seconds.

Others Weapons

Diao Chan

Weapon Name: Diva
Power: +51
Restrictions: No items & No bodyguards.
Requirement: Do not get detected before defeating Dong Zhuo, afterward defeat any 4 officers.
The patrol has bad depth perception due to the darkness so you can walk pretty close without them spotting you, though if they do notice make sure you run away from where they patrol, the minimap is great to use during this to stay out of their range.

You don't need to defeat Yan Liang or Wen Chou.

Yuan Shao

Weapon Name: Sword of Kings

Yuan Shao's prestige doesn't matter, also if Zhang He or Tian Feng defect you do not need to defeat them to get the weapon.

Power: +58
Restrictions: No bodyguards.
Requirement: Get 300 KOs in under 4 minutes.

This is easier than is sounds as enemies will tend to go for you. This setup allows for good KOs via C6 with full musou to get hopeful Vorpal procs, can switch Charge Bracer for Art of War if you feel power ups drop often enough.

Zhu Rong

Weapon Name: Inferno
Power: +53
Restrictions: No items & No bodyguards.
Requirement: Encounter Zhuge Liang in under 4 minutes without being discovered.
The first messenger by Wang Ping is unavoidable so defeat him and his messenger. You can practice the level to get a feel for the layout of the Guard Troops to not be spotted by them.

The timing can be quite tight, specially because of Huang Gai who is constantly near you as he can (and will) toss bombs which will take a good chunk of your health and knock away troops if he isn't knocked off of his horse. You will want to get at least 200 KOs around Hua Xiong & Hu Zhen before going to where Lu Bu is to get the final amount, Shadow Harness is recommended.

Easing the AI

Finding weapon hard to get due to the AI being too aggressive? Here's a way to make them less aggressive making these be easier.

Start the stage on Hard or Expert and make a save immediately, go to the options and change the difficulty to Beginner and start a different stage with any character. After the stage has loaded in battle soft reset (Start+Select) and go back and continue to your original save, enemies will now be more passive.
