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.
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.

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.
If your 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.
The geysers will stop burning or shooting up in the air just before they explode.
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.
For a second weapon, get your weapon to level 4. For a third weapon, get your weapon to level 7.
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.

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.

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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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. While in Musou mode during a duel, if you are losing, run up as close to the wall as possible. Press R 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. When you are losing a duel, go to the side of the dueling fences and hold R 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.
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.
When aiming at someone far away, hold R 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.
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.
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.
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.
Go to a difficult level and let your Gate Captain get killed. A Defense +1 will appear.
After being knocked down or off a horse, quickly press L to flip up and get ready to attack or guard. This also works well when fighting in duels.
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).
