Easy third weapons
Go to the Surprise Attack On Lui Biao level with an already enhanced Lu Bu and the character you want. There are five weapon boxes throughout the level. Get those with the other character, not Lu Bu after killing every person on the level with Lu Bu, except for the main person. Then, kill the last person. There is also a Musou +10 and an Life +10 in the level. For a third weapon, play under the hard difficulty setting. If you do not get their second or third weapon, play on the other side.
Max out a character (with or without a fourth weapon). Put a base strength character in the player one slot. The game adjusts its difficulty according to the first player's strength. Then, put your maxed character in slot two under the normal difficulty setting. Play the Battle At Tong Gate. At the start of the battle, put your first player character in a safe spot nearby then kill Tong Gate Generals Ma Dai, Pang De, and Han Sui. By now Ma Chow will be occupied with Cao Cao -- kill Cheng Yin and he will drop a weapon box. Keep the box on the second player's screen and have player one take the box. Have player two stand there and let his bodyguards take care of any units. Then, take player one to the northern-most point of Cao Cao's side of Tong Gate. Once there you will find a box with a weapon inside. Take the weapon, then hide player one and kill Ma Chow with player two.
Play the Battle of Mt. Ding Jun level on Shu forces. Turn around and take the path Zhand Fei is taking. Kill Xiahou De to get the weapons box. Go to where Xiahou Yuan is located and go right, then break open the box and pick up the weapons box. Next, find and kill Cao Hond and pick up the weapons box for the last one in the stage. There is also a Life +10 to the right of Cao Cao, to the left of you. You should play the level under the normal or hard difficulty setting for a better chance at getting the third weapon. The weapon will give you better stats. For example, playing on easy results with Life +9, playing on hard results in Life +31.
Play the Battle At Tong Gate level in two player mode under the hard difficulty setting. Have one of the players be powered up and the other as the character that will get the third weapon. Leave the first player where they start (unless there are enemies nearby, then move them away). Have the second player go to the right. Hopefully they will start near Cao Cao. If not, then use someone that does to find the box. Follow the hill to the left and when it makes a sharp turn keep going forward until you find the coast. Then, follow it to the left until you find a box that always has a weapon in it. Get it, then move him to safety. Use player one to finish the level. This may need to be repeated if the found weapon is the player's second weapon.
