Dynasty Warriors 6 Unlocking Guide

23 Feb Posted by in RPG Reviews | 233 comments

dynasty warriors 6 lu bu

9 characters are optional from the beginning while over 30 others can be recruited later, by finishing Musou modes with various kingdoms / officers and also by completing certain tasks within battle.

The complete DW6 Unlocking List also points out which of those characters have musou modes (17 characters do).

Feel free to check out the Dynasty Warriors 6 Walkthrough Index

    Hi LYS, I have problems unlocking Xu Zhu… could not find Cao Ren. Can you help?

    Thanks…

    • Lu Bu's Forces says:

      A1: You have to complete any 3 individual musou modes from Wu, Wei, and Shu characters. Then you unlock Cao Cao, Lui Bei, Sun Jian and Diao Chan. Then you complete those 4 musou modes and you unlock Lu Bu. You will do 14 musou modes in all.
      A2: Not exactly sure but I think my son unlocked him by beating the story mode with the leaders of their clans….. cao cao…. lui bei and so on….
      A3: A1 is correct and the sad part is that the charectors are way different right
      A4: Beat mosou mode with the following,Cao Cao,Sun Jian,
      Liu Bie,and the hot Diao Chan,okay?Good.You unlock
      Cao Cao,Sun Jian,and Liu Bie by beating three characters form each of their kingdoms.Dao Chan you unlock by beating mosou mode with one character from each kingdom.
      Hope this helps.
      A5: Complete liu bei,sun jian,cao cao,diao chan musou mode
      A6: Lu Bu is the strongest character in the game and also the hardest to get, you have to complete three Wei and three Wu to unlock sun jian and Cao Cao and then yo have to complete Cao Cao, Sun Jian, Diao Chan and Liu Bei’s musuo mode to unlock Lu Bu

  • Hey Martin…

    The only thing I can think of is you are doing the wrong level? It has to be Battle of He Fei Wu Side (some people get confused and think it’s battle of He Fei Castle). Cao Ren should be protecting the northwest castle and Xu Huang the northeast castle (but I think you just need to defeat Cao Ren, and then Xu Zhu in the center who is roaming around).

    Hopefully that works on He Fei Wu Side for you, if not who else is in the northwest castle there?

  • Martin says:

    Hi LYS,

    Thanks for your answers. I think you are right. I was doing Lu Xun musou mode but apparently the scenario is Battle of He Fei castle and not He Fei Wu side. I will see how do i get on to the He Fei Wu side battle.

  • Vitor says:

    Hi LYS, I have problems to unlock Sun Ce in my game
    I change the correct level, the correct force, but he isn’t unlocked
    Can you help me ?

  • Hmm. Well you just have to complete Xia Pi stage with Sun Ce alive. I assume Sun Jian’s forces is the correct force. Did you try this?

  • masterzhaoyun123 says:

    master yuan shu i have a question how do u unlock red hare please i have the ps3 i mean like when u have lu bu u gotta have red hare.

    thank you my lord.

  • masterzhaoyun123 says:

    its me again its the dw6

  • Well, you can’t find Red Hare like in the other games where there is an item drop. Instead you have to look for a high quality red horse (might have to be a King) and level it up. Look for ‘considers the world’ and ‘heavenly physique’. Those are the best qualities for horses.

  • masterzhaoyun123 says:

    well i got a red horse but i havent leveld it up yet but if i level it up with lubu will it become red hare
    ]
    thank you ,

  • Well it has nothing to do with whether you use Lu Bu or not. You can level up the horse with anyone. Like I said, just look for a red horse that is ‘considers the world’ and ‘heavenly physique’….this will produce a quality horse

  • masterzhaoyun123 says:

    where could i look for red hare and on wat stage for dw6

    thank you

  • ….

    How many times do I have to answer this question for you?

  • Kevin says:

    I’m wondering how many horses there are. Is it all random or is there a set amount of horses in the game? Also what is the best horse. Can the best horse be any horse with the title “considers the world” and ‘heavenly physique’. or would the best horse carry a name in there title.

  • Kevin says:

    I meant what name would most likely be given to the best horse?

  • David(lu bu) says:

    Hi i can see that you are very good lord …is there easy way to find king horses like on ps3 with that cheat….chahnig time…pls answer

  • David(lu bu) says:

    hm…

  • yourcow says:

    hey mr lord yuan shu, just asking, what country are you from? haha err, can i level up the horses with ‘heavenly physique’ with any hero? or must they have horsemanship and be level 50? can they be lvl 48?? please reply fast. thanks.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    I hail from Minneapolis Minnesota of the United States

    Heavenly physique and eyes consider the world.

    The level you are on doesn’t matter. You need a general with horsemanship skill and you need to fight on HARD difficulty on some of the more difficult stages.

  • blackout says:

    how do u do it on the 360

  • 214 SL says:

    is there any 4th weapons for each character..??

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Hey 214 SL :) No 4th weapons in Dynasty Warriors 6, unfortunately. I loved unlocking them in the old games. The best weapons you can get are just random drops (on later levels with high natural difficulty on Hard and Master difficulty level)

  • Nayyir says:

    Master yuan shu,

    i wnat to unlock lu bu in DW6 more easily than doing sun jian, diao chan, cao cao, and Liu Bei

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    haha.

    Unfortunately Nayyir, I know of no other way to unlock Lu Bu. I know that that is a lot of musou modes to complete to unlock him. Maybe there is a cheat somewhere to just unlock Lu bu and the other characters? If you come across a way to unlock Lu Bu without completing all those musou modes, please come back to lordyuanshu.com and let us know
    :D

  • Nayyir says:

    How do you unlock wu side in Xia Pi on DW6.Oh and how do you Get Cao Pi’s Beat weapon in DW6.

  • Nayyir says:

    HOw do you unlock Wu In Xia Pi DW6.

  • Nayyir says:

    I don’t know any way to think

  • Nayyir says:

    I meant how do you get Sun Jian’s Forces in Xia Pi.Ya KNow The Place Where You Defeat Lu Bu.Please tell LYS as soon as you can.Oh And ignore “I don’t know any way to think”.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Hello again Nayyir.

    For Cao Pi, there is no best weapon. There are no special 4th or 5th weapons in this game like the other ones. Simply play some of the harder stages (later years) on Hard difficulty or harder. Shi Ting is a good stage to find nice weapons / horses.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    To unlock Sun JIan’s Forces in Xia Pi, you need to have Sun Jian’s musou mode completed up until Xia Pi. This will unlock Xia Pi – Sun Jian’s Forces in Free Mode.

    Remember, to unlock Sun Jian and his musou mode, you need to complete 3 of the 4 Wu musou modes (Gan Ning, Sun Shang Xiang, Zhou Yu, and Lu Xun).

  • Nayyir says:

    By Cao Pi’s best weapon i meant in Dynasty Warriors 5.I heard you have to go to Wu Zhang Plains, but do you really have to do Hard or Chaos mode? (dynasty warriors 5).And why is Zuo Ci so special?

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    For Cao Pi 4th weapon Dynasty Warriors 5….

    Wu Zhang Plains, Wei Forces; Kill any three officers, Zhuge Liang dies, Destroy all arbalests when they appear

    Yes, it must at least be on Hard. This is okay though because Dynasty Warriors 5 is so damn easy even on Hard. Chaos mode is tough, but just stay on Hard mode.

    I’m not a fan of Zuo Ci myself. He is good in battle, but a pointless addition to the series. Obviously, I would have much rather seen Yuan Shu added! And I do believe Yuan Shu will be present in Dynasty Warriors 7

  • Nayyir says:

    Can you Describe what a arbalests is.Are they the tiger looking things which shoot out fire arrows?

  • Nayyir says:

    Dear LYS,

    Are arbalests the wooden tiger face things which shoot out fire arrows DW5.Oh and how do you unlock Yuan Shao in DW6.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    They are the big tiger looking machines that follow Yue Ying around and shoot fire. So yes, you are right.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    As for Yuan Shao in Dynasty Warriors 6, we need to complete all three tasks at Guan Du stage against Yuan Shao.

    The hardest of the three is to defense Bai Ma and Yan Jin so that they don’t go to Yuan Shao’s forces. He sends a huge amount of officers to both bases, so you will have to protect Bai Ma and then hurry to Yan Jin. Killing officers with a powerful level 5 horse helps make things faster.

  • Nayyir says:

    Oh crazy of me I thought i was supposed to be at Yuan Shaos side.And don’t worry i can kill his troops in one hit because I have Cao Pi level 50.Oh again how do you unlock Cao Pi’s 2nd and 3rd weapon.DW5.P.S. and hard mode is Hard just for the record.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    haha…yea, we can’t play the ‘other’ side (Yuan Shao’s forces) at Guan Du.

    It would be nice to be able to play on the other side at Guan Du, Yellow Turban Rebellion, Hu Lao Gate, etc.

    If you have level 50 Cao Pi then yes, you should be fine. You can complete all three tasks at Guan Du even with a weaker ally (level 5-10 even).

    How do you unlock Cao Pi’s 2nd and 3rd weapon in DW5? His 4th weapon Chaos is the only one you need to unlock, his 2nd and 3rd weapons you can find on harder stages.

    Hard difficulty depends on the Dynasty Warriors. Hard in DW5 is not hard. Hard in DW3 though is pretty damn hard.

    • Dian Man says:

      You can play as yuan shao just finish Zhang he musou mode his first level is guan du Yuan shao side and yea to play Yellow turban as Zhangjiao forces is cool

  • Nayyir says:

    I can Barely get Wu Zhang plains on easy.Oh and are ther any cheats to getting any characters.If you know please tell. THanks DW6

  • Nayyir says:

    I can barely get Wu Zhang Plains on easy DW5.I unlocked Yuan Shao today.Oh and are there any cheats to getting any characters DW5 and DW6.

    Thanks

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Good job on unlocking Yuan Shao.

    I don’t know any cheats to unlock characters in DW5 or DW6, that’s why I asked you to post if you find any cheats out for that :)

  • Nayyir says:

    Thanks by the way and i found a cheat to unlock all generals.(PS2)

  • duken98 says:

    what about ps3 for the cheats

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Hey, thanks for the cheat codes Nayyir. I will publish them on the main part of the site so that other people can see them easier (instead of just those surfing the comments here).

    As for Hu Lao Gate Dong Zhuo’s side, we cannot unlock it in DW6. Same with Yellow Turban side, Yuan Shao side, Yuan Shu side, etc. I wish we could play as the enemy sides. Oh well.

    Maybe Nayyir can scrounge up some cheat codes for PS3 as well, Duke.

  • Nayyir says:

    Duke i will post cheats for ps3 tommoroww if you need. Today i am tired to look for codes. Dear LYS,

    How do you unlock Lu Bu side Hu Lao Gate? DW6 PS2

  • Nayyir says:

    oh and Lys Tell me if codes worked

  • Nayyir says:

    I found on internet

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Nayyir – I don’t think in Dynasty Warriors 6 that we can unlock Lu Bu side Hu Lao Gate on PS2 or PS3 or Xbox360. I do not know how at least.

    Oh, and I can’t tell if the codes work because I don’t have the PS2 version of Dynasty Warriors 6. I only own the PS3 version. Someone else will have to test the codes to see if they work…

    • Dian Man says:

      Finish lu bu musou and get hu lao gate lubu side but things re extremely different from the coalition VS donzhuo thing.

  • Nayyir says:

    LYS
    you can unlock Lu Bu side Hu Lao Gate because my friend has it for xbox360,Ps2,Ps3.
    i will try to find out
    and fellow duke as for PS3:
    all cheat websites said there were no cheats i tried

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Well, you’ll have to tell me how to unlock Hu Lao Gate Dong Zhuo / Lu Bu side. Because I’ve never seen it.

  • Nayyir says:

    mt friend said you have to unlock lu bu the great

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Oh hey now that you say that you’re right, there is a Lu Bu stage Hu Lao Gate. It is the final stage in the game – Lu Bu’s last stage in his musou mode. He fights everyone in China.

    I thought you were saying we can control Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo’s forces at Hulao Gate against Yuan Shao and those folks. Now I see what you’re saying and you’re right, Lu Bu has a Hu Lao Gate stage himself.

  • Nayyir says:

    i think you do cheat codes at title screen PS2 only! If you have any questions ask me. But i do have a question for you. How did you make this site?

    • unknown person... says:

      how can i get a king horse or whatever there called… lol

      do i need special requirements to get it

      what level

      im very sorry for all these questions

  • AlexU says:

    About unlocking Yuan Shao, I did it by just using the strongest character available to me and the fastest horse I have. When the battle starts just charge straight at Yuan Shao in his camp and defeat him to win the battle before Yan Jin or Bai Ma falls.

    It seems the target “Yan Jin and Bai Ma do not fall” is the only real requirement to unlock Yuan Shao.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Nayyir, we made this site with love and care. Started it in 2005. Most recently it has been with WordPress – an active, open community that is always providing new plugins for us to try on the site to enhance everyone’s experience. Chances are we’ll have an update soon to reflect some of these new changes, hope you enjoy. We have other sites also.

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    AlexU, you are right. Having an over-leveled character is very helpful, but having a quality level 5 Horse is probably the most important factor. Even if we are very good at killing officers hand-to-hand, it will still take a lot of time at Guan Du with officers like Yuan Tan, Yuan Xi, Yuan Shang, etc who have their defense powered up. But they are still susceptible to getting trampled by a horse for heavy damage.

    I suppose that yea, you could just charge ahead and take out Yuan Shao. I never thought of that :) I suppose you have to be quick though because Yan Jin and Bai Ma fall quick.

    I think you are right too, AlexU. Probably only need to complete the target about holding Yan Jin and Bai Ma to unlock Yuan Shao as a playable character.

  • Nayyir says:

    LYS,

    How do you unlock Lu Bu DW5.do you have to do 1 general of each kingdom cause if you do i 1/3 finished

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    First of all, DW5 is dumb. Stop playing and get yourself a copy of Dynasty Warriors 3. This game is 10x better.

    If you still are playing, yes, you unlock Lu Bu by finishing 1 musou mode from each kingdom. I just googled it and found the answer, I’m sure you already knew since it’s not hard to find information or anything.

  • Nayyir says:

    Ok i will get DW3 cause also i think DW5 is dumb! How do you unlock Lu Bu DW3

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Good plan. Get Dynasty Warriors 3 for PS2. The graphics are a little old at this point, but it has the best gameplay in my humble opinion (having played all 6). It was the first to have droppable weapons. The first to have a unique musou mode for everyone. Plus it has a ton of stages especially compared to DW6.

    To unlock Lu Bu in DW3, we kill 1000 enemies at the Battle of Hu Lao Gate.

  • Nayyir says:

    Isn’t DW3 the one with the duals and that kind of stuff. And wouldn’t it take time to kill 1000 enemies. Plus i know they are easy to kill but not Lu Bu. Is Lu Bu strong in Hu Lao and Si Shui Gate. Why doesn’s DW6 have a Si Shui gate. SOrry i asked to much but i hope you answer

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    No duels in DW3. Duels are in DW4. And they make the game too easy – just beat the enemy officer in a duel and their entire army is gone!

    Killing 1000 enemies at Hu Lao Gate DW3 is not hard. You go through a lot of kills in DW3, for one. And at Hu Lao Gate, there are a ton of enemies that appear near enemy camp (Dong Zhuo). Just keep fighting them as they spawn from the Gate Captains.

    There is no Si Shui Gate in DW3. DW6 doesn’t have one either, which makes sense considering there are but 20 some odd stages in DW6.

  • Nayyir says:

    how do you unlock yellow turbun side on any matches DW3, DW5, DW6. Oh and i got Dynasty Warriors 3. you are right it is more fun than 5 and maybe 6. thanks for the help

  • Nayyir says:

    also is Lu Bu in this Hu Lao Gate too? DW3 my mother said me play no game till next week

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Probably unlock Zhang Jiao and you can control the Turbans in their stage.

    Lu Bu is indeed at Hu Lao Gate DW3. However Lu Bu does not go to protect Dong Zhuo in DW3, like he does at Hu Lao Gate DW6.

    Too bad you can’t play. I guess I’ll hear from you next week.

  • Nayyir says:

    How do you unlock Zhang Jiao DW5. TY

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    We complete Sun Jian’s, Liu Bei’s and Cao Cao’s musou modes to unlock Zhang Jiao.

  • Nayyir says:

    How do you unlock tellow turban side DW6 cause i already unlocked Zhang Jiao. Oh i forgot you have to go through his Mosou. TY for i dont know

  • Nayyir says:

    How do you you unlock Lu Bu in Dynasty Warriors Strike Force Ps2.I heard something about Chapter 6. Is chapter 6 like the 6th part in mouso mode? I just DW strikeforce. it is way more fun than Dynasty Warriors 3.

  • rocky says:

    how do you unlock xu zhu in dynasty warriors 6

  • rocky says:

    for the ps2

  • Lord Yuan Shu says:

    Nayyir – I don’t know anything about DW Strikeforce. But I do know it’s not better than DW3.

    Rocky – Sorry for the confusion but Xu Zhu is Xu Chu above. For unlocking Xu Zhu / Chu, we have to do He Fei Wu side. Cao Ren and Xu Zhu need to be defeated in 10 minutes – Cao Ren is in the northwest castle of He Fei so you may wish to charge the castle and defeat him quickly. Xu Zhu is in the dead center part of the stage between the two middle bases. Defeat them both in 10 minutes to unlock Xu Zhu.

  • The Ma Family says:

    yo yuan I’v been followin ur unlockables guide and i’m having trouble unlocking cao pi. I do the battle and cao pi never shows up in the first 5 minz of he fei castle. If u could help that would be great, thanks bro.

    • The Ma Family says:

      LYS I figured out how to get Cao Pi and you need to change ur unlockables guide bro. to unlock Cao Pi you need to defeat Cao Pi in under 5 minz on the battle of Hei Fe, Sun Jian’s forces. Hope this could help other people.
