Mercenary Mode Achievements

Mercenary Mode: Unification 35
Claim victory in a Unification Battle in Mercenary Mode(SW2XL) and save your game.

In order to enter a Unification Battle, you must back a specific clan. The best way to do this is to always fight on one clan's side and never fight against them. Eventually, the option Serve the House of <clan> will appear under Select Event for 50 Gems. Selecting this will force your allegiance with that clan. After fighting for that clan for another length of time, the mission Uniting The Land will appear in Select Mission. Complete this event to end Mercenary Mode and unlock the achievement. Note that you must save your game afterwards to unlock the achievement.

NOTE: I would suggest making a save before completing this event, saving the result to a different slot to unlock the achievement, and going to Save/Load and loading up your old save. The new save will force you to start a new Mercenary Mode, so the old save will allow you to start from before the Unification Battle. You can still unlock new side missions with this event active.

Mercenary Mode: Greatest 35
Become the greatest in the land in Mercenary Mode(SW2XL) and save your game.

Collect all 10 Precious Swords and complete the Battle For Supremacy Mission in Stage 100. This WILL NOT unlock if you complete a Unification Battle instead of the Battle For Supremacy. The Precious Swords are obtained through Secret Missions and offerings in Select Event. The full list of swords is below. Note that you must save your game afterwards to unlock the achievement.

Kanesada - Available from the Select Event menu for 30 Gems upon reaching Stage 21.

Ichimonji - Available from the Select Event menu after completing the Guard the Princess 2 Mission in Stage 27. In order to receive this mission, all other Princess missions to this point must be completed (Guard the Princess 1 and Save the Princess 1 & 2).

Munechika - Available from the Select Event menu after completing the Kagemusha Mission on Stage 36.

Murasame - Available from the Select Event menu as Gift From Peasants on Stage 41. Costs 30 Gems.

Yasutsuna - Received after completing the Treasure Thief Mission in Stage 44. In order to receive this mission, all other Treasure missions to this point must be completed.

Sukesane - Received after completing the Mighty Swordsman Mission in Stage 51.

Koshino - Received after completing the Hero of the Battlefield Mission in Stage 71.

Osamitsu - Available from the Select Event menu as Offering From Noble on Stage 81. Costs 35 Gems.

Odenta - Received after completing the Dream Team Mission in Stage 86.

Ochiba - Available from the Select Event menu as Reward From The Shogun in Stage 99. Costs 40 Gems.

Thanks for looking into this. I'm going to be starting Merc Mode tonight or tomorrow so any info would be great on how to get the last two acheivements. Of course if I get one of them, I'll post what I did.

I am allied to the date clan for 50 gems it just gurantees you fighting for the date clan instead of maybe having to fight against,

I got a second sword called Ichimonji *bottom right corner one* for doing rescue princess 2 mission* at stage 28

Thanks Terrin - that's what I thought.

I believe Unification has to deal with completion of Mercenary Mode and Greatest has to deal with completing Mercenary Mode with all Precious Swords after reading around, as collecting all of the Precious Swords grants a different ending. I'm on Stage 27 currently and I completed the Rescue Princess 1 mission earlier so I should see this soon.

Can someone please document the Princess missions for the previous Stages, or possibly document ALL of the special missions that appear? I'll start doing so from where I'm at on Stage 27, but I'll need the missions from the previous Stages and confirmation from someone else that those are the Stages that trigger the special mission being available in Select Event.

So I was reading the SW2 forums on Gamefaqs and people are posting that you do indeed need all the special swords to get "Greatest". Still no confirmation on "Unification". I'll update you guys if I find anything else. Working together FTW!!

ok stage 36 (allied with date clan) I got a event called unifaction of the land it is 0 gems (you actually get gems) and then a battle is there and if you read the title (not the bottom as usally) it says Unifcation of the land if you do this mission though it ends your mercenary career but gives you the achivement.

Awesome, that's what I thought Terrin. So, should you wait to unify the land in exchange for the swords? Do your stats, including your swords, carry over to the next playthrough? If so, do you get different secret missions going through a second time?

Just got the Unification Battle achievement. I played as Kotaro Fuma and was on the Oda clans side until i joined it at about stage 14. Then i fought on their side until stage 21 then got my first sword from the merchant. I then fought the next battle and after it there was a bunch of dialog about how i survived 21 battles and unified the land. I saved my game and got the achievement but then it took me back to the main menu and now i can't continue from stage 21, i have to start from stage 1 again .

Stage # should work for now so I can track down the mission path (hopefully) when I find the name of the mission. Good job on catching the save there

Dug this up for you guys. This is a copy-paste, so I can't take any credit:

"4 of them can be obtained by paying balls in Event list. Other 6 have to be obtained from clear Special mission stage.

Special missions where you can get sword : (name might be different in US version)
Escort Princess - part 2
Defeat sword master
Rob the rich
One man riding
Defeat fake
Musou fighting

About when you can see the event to buy swords :
(estimated, not fixed)
Around stage 21, 41, 81 and 99."

Credit goes to Opver_gv on Gamefaqs.

So how long does each stage take?? 100 is a lot, so this could take a while.

Okay, cool, thanks. I'll grab the official mission names, required missions (if I can track them down reliably enough) and weapon names and add them to the top as they trickle in. I'll quote this at the top post so that people have a good idea of how to get everything.

It takes approximately 5-10 minutes to clear a Stage if you're going for the maximum number of Gems per stage, which results in approximately 9 - 17 hours worth of gameplay depending on your style and strength of character. It takes me 5 minutes with a maxed out Musashi, clearing the stage completely of officers and checking for events.

Ouch, that's a lot of work. lol So can you actually miss any of these swords?? I'm guessing it would be very important to make a save file after every 10 levels, and also so you can revert back after getting the unification achievement.

For the store, I'm not sure if the options disappear after a length of time, but yes, you could theoretically miss a sword somewhere if you didn't do all of the secret missions.

Yeah, as long as you don't spend your gems on stupid things, you can get away with that. Also, using guards with Charisma and ...Yukimura's skill that gives you gems every 50 KOs, whatever that is... really helps out. I'm blazing through now at about 2 minutes per Stage, which equates to about 3.5 hours (including extra time).

EDIT: It took me 8 hours to complete this, although I could complete it within 6 if I rushed.

...I guess I should put that up there. I realized that the Unification Battle does not constitute becoming the greatest warrior so I just went for Stage 100, saw the Battle For Supremacy mission and knew it was that one.

Oh shit Terrin so you saved over your level 99 file?? That sucks. I'm running 5 save slots. lol

About which stage did you guys get the Unification battle on?? I'm on stage 30 and I've been doing mostly Date clan missions and special missions. I've been part of their clan (50 gems) for like the last 7 stages.

Is it possible to run out of gems and not be able to get something important?? I haven't been increasing my mercenarie's levels beause of the 10 gem cost. I would hate to get a special event or sword to pop up and not have enough gems.

Okay, so it's done. Here are my findings.

You should have enough gems to do EVERYTHING in the special events menu. The only expensive thing is joining a clan. Just make sure you have more than 50 at all times and you'll be fine. There's a bodyguard skill "Adulation" that gives you a gem for every 50 kills which will help ease your mind if you're still worried. Mitsuhide and Yukimuru both have it. If you check the events after every stage and participate in every special battle, you will have all swords by stage 99, then the Battle for supremacy pops for stage 100 and bam you're done.

I'm in the process of doing these two achievements. I've unlocked unification and am into my 6th sword now at Level 62. Some observations/ notes:

I got join the clan at Level 15 and unification at Level 22. The first sword was available at Level 21 but I ignored it and went on to do unification first. I went back to get the sword at a later level and still got it.

For the Munechika (Kagemusha mission), the mission that the ninja gives you is random. But it's usually killing a boss that has several copies of him/herself until the "real" copy appears. Must do in 10 minutes to win the mission.

For the Ichimonji (princess mission), you need to do one escort the princess and two save the princess missions before the 4th one appears to give a sword. The escorting one is a pain because of stupid princess AI. The saving ones are ok, since you only need to kill the specified bosses to "save" her.

For the Yasutsuna (thief treasure mission), you need to do an escort mission (pain, weak AI, etc.), a mission to find a missing document and a mission to find a missing football (sorry if the descriptions are a little vague, cause I'm playing the Japanese version) before it appears. The actual treasure mission that unlocks the sword is pretty easy. Just kill the specified boss and you'll get it.

For the Sukesane (mighty swordsman mission), you'll have to kill the specified boss twice to win it.
