      Introduction
      ============
      This is my first FAQ and first FAQ for this game so 
      Iím not entirely balanced with FAQ skills. I have 
      decided to create a 4th Weapons FAQ to help and guide people
      on their mission to find 4th weapons.
      I will provide easy and useful steps as to unlocking them.

21. Credits and Thanks.  



Player must play hardmode or over to be able to unlock 4th weapons. 
Unlike previous SW Games,
these weapons are easier to get but they do still provide a challange. 
Some weapon requirements 
require you to complete missions while keeping your allies alive.
 This can be a challange as they die quite easy.
You are going to have to keep your morale higher than the enemies. . .
More will be explained below. . .


============================================================================
1.Yukimura Sanada							SWYS
============================================================================
Assault on the Mid-West

Kill all Generals and Sub-generalsin 20 turns except Nobunaga with Kanetsugu
Naoe and Yasumasa Sakakibara alive.

You have to kill all generals and subgenerals yourself. If any officer kills
them, you will not get the weapon. Try getting an A in every mission you are
given. Don't foeget to use haste, boost or paralyse if you have them. This
will make things much easier for you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
2.Tadakatsu Honda							SWTH
============================================================================
Ieyasu's Volition - Dissension in Shinano

Kill 1000 officers and you will get the precious item report.

This is simple, but time consuming. Leave a few majors alive so they take o-
ver allied bases. This way, it will make it easier to kill enemies. Also take
advantage of the "Kill as many enemies as you can in >insert time<" missions.
Another thing is to move 1 square at a time. This will also give you the
chance to kill more enemies.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
3.Okuni									SWOk
============================================================================
Goemon and Okuni - Flight from the capital

Find all 15 treasure houses in 15 turns. Then defeat Hideyoshi when he shows
up. You will get this weapon automatically.

This is a really hard one. It is based on luck. The formation of the treasure
houses change each time. Here are the 3 formations:

The shape of a heart.
A "G" shape.
A "W" shape.

It is based on luck on luck which one you get. Try getting the rank "A" and 
move 3 squares. This way you may get 3 treasure houses in 3 squares. I cannot
give you much of a stratagey really because this is based entirely on luck.
Try your best and hope you'll win.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
4.Oichi									SWOi
============================================================================
The oda's conquest - The battle of Anegawa

WITHOUT using Valve Charm, defeat Kazumasa Isono and Kagenori Asakura and you
will get the precious item report.

Note: You DON'T have to defeat these two yourself. The two main camps can do 
the job for you if you have enough Rally Charms or damaging charms.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
5.Ina									 SWI
============================================================================
Ieyasu's Volition - Revolt at Mikawa.

Defeat these generals in this order and below 13 turns:
1)Nagateru Udono
2)Sessai Taigen
3)Yasutomo Asahina
4)Ujizan Imagawa
5)The 4 backup generals,in a clockwise order from the top left.
6)If 2 or more generals are in a same battle, 
you still have to follow the orders.
7)Special Item Report.

Not much of a strategy here... its simple.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
6.Magoichi Saika							SWMS
============================================================================
Magoichi Saika - Escape from Kyushu

Take the CENTRAL port to the other half of the map (where the cannons located). 
Defeat every enemy officer except Keiji's unit, INCLUDING subofficers. 
Take out the Cannons using the Sabotage Charm as well.

During the early course of the stage, you'll obtain a Breach Charm. 
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use it to open the side gates. 
You'll need it to get to the special weapon.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
7.Keiji Maeda								SWKM
============================================================================
Keiji and Magoichi - Encounter in the Northwest

Use Valve within 4 turns, defeat every enemy officer 
(you don't have to defeat 
them by yourself)EXCEPT Masashige Jojo and Kanetsugu Naoe,defeat Kenshin Uesugi 
by yourself and you will obtain the special weapon automatically.

Keep doing the usual stuff. . .Cureall, heal, rally or whatever you can do to
boost strength.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
8.Goemon Ishikawa							SWGI
============================================================================
Goemon and Okuni - Dance at Shijogawara

You need to defeat the respawned Miscreant units 10 times! Then you will get
a special item report.

This is easy. Miscreants are slow and easy so you shouldn't have a problem.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
9.Kunoichi								 SWK
============================================================================
Rise of the Takeda - Costly Passage

Overtake the strongholds in all 3 islands within 10 turns! Then you will get
a special item report.

Boost 3, haste is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! also get an "A" in every mission, you
will be able to move 3 squares. Another is to have bodyguard's who start you
off with either haste or boost 3, this will make it easier.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
10.Shingen Takeda							SWST
============================================================================
Rise of the Takeda - Shigen's Pilgrimage

Make a COUNTERCLOCK-WISE passage and capture each Temple, 
defeat Motochika Chosokabe WITHOUT the temples being overtaken by enemies 
and you will get a precious item report.

Use rally to boost defenses and you should be Ok if you follow the 
instructions.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
11.Hanzo Hattori							SWHH							
============================================================================
Enter the Tokugawa-Iga Resistance

defeat Yoshinari Mori, Kazumasu Takigawa,  Ukon Takayama and Noh within 8 turns 
defeat Kotarou Fuuma who appears afterwards and you will get the 
precious item report 
(weapon is located below 1 and right 2 of Noh's initial position)

This easy. Use thunder, fire or rally if it helps you to make it easier.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
12.Yoshimoto Imagawa							SWYI
============================================================================
Strength from Above - Escape from Anegawa

Let Kenshin and Date escape within 20 turns and you will get a precious item
report.

There is a high risk of either 1 of them being defeated
 so rush to their side
using boost or haste.Or you could use rally on them so they defeat the officers.
You have to be quick and fast.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
13.Ranmaru Mori								SWRM
============================================================================
Mitsuhide and Ramaru - Assault on Kyushu

Defeat every enemy general at least once (total of 6) before enemy commander
shows up and you will get a precious item report.

Once again, you have to be quick. Make use of Boost and haste to reach the
generals quickly.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
14.Masamune Date							SWMD
============================================================================
Strength from Above - Assault on the North

Activate all 4 Avalanche Charms within 12 turns 

EASY! just keep at a fast pace and follow instructions to the battle

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
15.Kenshin Uesugi							SWKU
============================================================================
Strength from Above - Assault on the East

defeat Ujimasa Hojo and Ujiteru Hojo within 10 turns, defeat Narimasa Nagano 
who appears afterwards and you will obtain it automatically.

*Yawns* Once again, use Boost or Haste to increase speed and to make it easier

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
16.Mitsuhide Akechi							SWMA
============================================================================
Akechi and Ranmaru - Assault on Sanyo

Force Takakage Kobayakawa to escape within 15 turns and you will get a 
precious item report.

To make Takakage Kobayakawa escape, you need to overtake all enemy
strongholds. Remember to use your charms to make things easier.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
17.Noh									 SWN
============================================================================
Mr. and Mrs. Oda - Nobunaga's Flight

Defeat Goemon ishikawa and capture every stronghold! Then defeat Magoichi
Saika and a precious item report will appear.

I suggest defeating Goemon and then capture the stronghols in a clock-wise
direction. That is the route i took to get it. Also there is a high chance of
Nobunaga dying so use rally on him.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

============================================================================
18.Hideyoshi Hashiba						       SWHHA
============================================================================
Kyushu Campaign

Keep all your allies alive until Yoshihisa Shimazu appears. The weapon appears
at H7.

Rally is essential for this battle. Use it whenever possible when your allies
are in danger of being routed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

=============================================================================
19.Nobunaga Oda								 NWNO
=============================================================================
Northern campaign

Kill either Yukimura Sanada or Kenshin Uesugi with ALL your allies alive.

Rally is important. Follow the same strategy as the above.
