This game is fantastic!  Capcom has brought us some of the most addicting 
combat I have seen in a game.  Bloody combat has never been so brutal and so 
much fun in an action game!  This walkthrough is designed to get you through 
the main game of Shadow of Rome and to help you find all the extras that are 
contained within.  All the Salvos, and all of the game's secrets are listed 
below the walkthrough.  Each of Agrippa's Arena stages has a Gold Ranking 
Strategy to help you out on gaining those gold medals and each of Octavianus' 
stages have coin locations for each area.  Please note that everything is 
written for normal mode.  As in my other walkthroughs I have stayed away from 
anything dealing with the plot, but if you consider boss names a spoiler, then 
tread carefully.

Please enjoy this FAQ and give me an email if you have any questions, comments, 
or if you find anything that I missed.  Any comments, suggestions, questions, 
etc. are always welcome.  Email me at berserker_kev@yahoo.com.  Also, if you 
find any errors in this FAQ (I don't care how little of an error), then please 
email me about it.

=========================
 = CHARACTERS CONTROLS =
=========================

-----------------
AGRIPPA'S ACTIONS
-----------------

Auto-target - Hold R1 while an enemy is on the screen to auto-target them.  Use 
the right analog to switch between opponents.  This makes stealth kills much 
easier in the first few stages.

First person view - Hold R2.  This can be used for stealth kill as well, or 
just looking around.

Block - Hold L1.  You can block at any time, but if you have a weapon equipped, 
the block will be more guaranteed.

Appeal to the Crowd - Press X + Square.  This will only help you in the arena, 
but feel free to use as a taunt outside of the arena.

Punch - Press X or Square while weaponless to make Agrippa punch.  Press X or 
Square with a weapon equipped to perform a variety of different moves depending 
on the weapon.  See the weapons section for more details.

Shoulder Ram - Hold R1 and press toward your opponent and X.

Power Attack (Charge Attack) - Press and hold X or Square to charge an attack. 
Most attacks can be charged.

Supra Attack - Hold R1 and press toward your opponent and X.

Kick - Hold R1 and press away from your opponent and X or Square.

Enemy Shield - Stand behind a stunned opponent and press Square to use them as 
a shield to oncoming attacks.

Suplex - Stand behind a stunned opponent and press Square to grab them, then 
keep tapping either Square or X to suplex them.  On the Salvo list this 
referred to as the Human Catapult.

Attacking Enemies on the Ground:

-- Stomping - Press X over a fallen opponent.

-- Grab - Press Square over a fallen opponent.

-- Weapon Attack - Hold R1 and press Square over a downed opponent.

Stealing weapons from enemies:

-- Grab and struggle - While weaponless, stand next to an opponent that is not 
   attacking or taking damage and press X to initiate a struggle for his/her 
   weapon.  Tap X or Square to pull the weapon out of your opponent's hands.

-- Snatch - While weaponless, press X the moment right before a weapon attack 
   connects to instantly snatch the weapon from the enemy's hands.

Dropping Weapons or items:

-- Drop weapon (right-hand) - D-pad right.

-- Drop weapon (left-hand) - D-pad left.

-- Drop helmet - D-pad up.

-------------------
OCTAVIANUS' ACTIONS
-------------------

Pick up, Examine, Talk - Press O.  Do not pick up a weapon in front of a guard 
while disguised or your disguise will be ruined.

Use an Item/Weapon - Press either Square or X depending on which hand the 
weapon is held in.  Like Agrippa, Octavianus can handle two weapons at a time.

Hiding an Item/Weapon - Press and hold both L1 and R1 to hide your current 
weapon behind your back.  Make sure to keep your front side to your foe.  
Octavianus will automatically lock on to the closest foe while the buttons are 
being held.

Whistle - Press both Square and X together.  This move is priceless, and must 
be used during certain stages of the game to lure guards toward a specific area 
to quickly knock them out or get by them - don't forget about it!

Walk - Hold L1 while moving.  You will have to walk a bunch when guards are 
present whether you are in disguise or not.  Running will ruin you disguise.

Crouch - Press and hold L2.  This can be used for sneaking by enemies or to 
knock them out quickly.

First person view - Hold R2.  Just like with Agrippa, this can be used to make 
your aiming better.

Auto-target - Hold R1.  Use this before striking an opponent with an object to 
make sure you hit him/her correctly.  Use the right analog to switch between 
opponents.

Dropping Weapons:

-- Drop weapon (right-hand) - D-pad right.

-- Drop weapon (left-hand) - D-pad left.

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

=============
 = WEAPONS =
=============

-----------------
AGRIPPA'S WEAPONS
-----------------

>> BARE FISTS <<

Agrippa's bare fists are not too damaging, but he does have quite a variety of 
attacks while weaponless

Moves and combos:

-- Square, Square, Square
-- X, X
-- Square, Square, X
-- Square, Square, X, Square, X - Fists of Fury.
-- Toward + X - Ram Supra Attack.  A charged ram is an excellent way to make 
   the enemy drop their weapon.
-- Back + X (or Square) - Kick.  This can also be done with a weapon equipped.
-- Press X right before an enemy's weapon attack - Agrippa will snatch the 
   weapon directly out of the enemy's hand and knock them him down.
-- Press X when next to an enemy with a weapon - This will start a struggle in 
   which Agrippa will attempt to steal the weapon directly out of the enemy's 
   hands.  Tap X when the struggle for the weapon starts.  The enemy must not 
   be in the middle of an attack while attempting to steal.  The best time to 
   do this is while the enemy is blocking with a weapon.

>> GLADIUS (Normal, Guardian, or Power) or SAI (Roma) <<

The Gladius is the most basic weapon in the game.  The Sai can cut off an arm 
from an opponent with a charged hit, but still pales in comparison to the 
Scimitar.

Moves and combos:

-- X, X, X - Sword slash combo.
-- X, X, toward + X - Sword slash into thrust combo.
-- Toward + X - Forward thrust supra attack.  This can be used to finish 
   opponents off for some extra Salvos or when you need to get a quick strike 
   on an opponent.
-- Triangle - Throw the Gladius.  It will impale an opponent if thrown for the 
   final hit.

>> MACE (Normal, Power, or Grand) or GERMAN AXE <<

The Mace is the most powerful of the one-handed weapons and can break helmets, 
shields, or other weapons rather quickly.

Moves and combos:

-- X, X - Overhead strike into mace uppercut.
-- Toward + X - Overhead smash supra attack.  If charged, this will crush an 
   opponents head for the final strike.
-- X, toward + X - Overhead strike into overhead smash.

>> SCIMITAR (Normal or Power) <<

The Scimitar is easily the most deadly of the one-handed since it can cut off 
an arm or head very quickly without even a charged hit.

Moves and combos:

-- X, X, X, X - The main combo for the Scimitar.  This combo can easily cut an 
   arm for your opponent.  The many hits of the combo can be charged to 
   guarantee and amputation.

-- Toward + X - The reaper.

>> MORNINGSTAR and WAR CHAIN <<

This is the ultimate weapon for a crowd since nothing can get to you during the 
X swing.

-- X - This will swing the whip around, and can be done continuously as long as 
   the weapon last.  One hit with an X swing while the enemy is stunned will 
   automatically break an arm.

-- Toward + X - A powerful overhead strike with some pretty good reach.  This 
   will crush an opponents head very easily.

>> MAUL (Normal or Power) <<

Moves and combos:

-- X - Overhead smash.  This will crush an opponent's head for the final attack 
   if charged.
-- Charge X then tap X - This will add an extra hit known as a Tee-Off to the 
   overhead smash.
-- Toward + X - Maul Thrust.  When charged, this move can break an opponent's 
   arm.
-- Square - Horizontal Strike.  If you charge this, it will break an opponent's 
   arm just like the thrust move.

>> DAGGER (Normal or Claw Shard) <<

Not too useful by itself but it has a most deadly instant behind/stealth kill 
that can be performed any time that an opponent staggers.

Moves and combos:

-- Square, Square, Square, Square - the only combo for the dagger.  Not too 
   useful by itself.
-- Square from behind a staggering or weak opponent - This is the dagger's 
   instant kill move entitled "Stuck Pig".  The animation will differ depending
   on which gladiator you do this to.

>> MAGNUS SWORD <<

This is where the party's at!  This weapon will allow you to totally strip any 
opponent of their limbs in seconds.

Moves and combos:

-- X, X - the basic combo.  When charged, this move can take out an arm per 
   slice.  If the enemy is weak, the first strike and second strike will either 
   chop them in half or chop off their head. 
   the second strike will chop off their head.
-- X, X, toward + X - the above combo with an added jumping overhead strike.
-- Toward + X - Overhead strike.
-- Square - horizontal strike.  When charged, this move will almost always cut 
   off some attachment.  If the opponent is staggering it will cut them in half 
   when charged.

>> SPEAR (Normal, Apollo, Gedo, or Zedo) <<

A powerful weapon with good reach, though not as deadly as the other two-handed 
weapons.  The spear can be the best weapon for pressuring techniques and can 
break an opponents weapon pretty quickly when using its charge supra attack.

Moves and combos:

-- X, X, X, X - basic spear combo
-- Square - Spear strike.
-- Toward + X - Spear thrust supra attack.  Do this for the final hit and it 
   will impale the opponent.
-- Charge Toward + X, tap X - This will impale the opponent and throw them.  
   The animation will vary depending on the size of the opponent.
-- Triangle - The spear takes a bunch of damage when thrown and will impale an 
   opponent for the final hit.

>> SHIELD (Roma, German, Parma, Spike, or Guardian) <<

The shields are quite useful, whether you have a weapon in your other hand or 
not.  The Square, X combo can really help out for pressuring opponents.

Moves and combos (without weapon):

-- Square, X - Agrippa will hit his opponent with the shield and then ram them.

Moves and combos (with weapon):

-- Square, X, X, X (w/Mace) - Agrippa will hit his opponent with the shield and 
   then start a three hit Mace combo.
-- Square, X, X, X, X (w/Gladius) - Agrippa will hit his opponent with the 
   shield and then start a four hit Gladius combo.
-- Square, X, toward + X - Same as above, except he will end with the equipped 
   weapon's supra attack.
-- X, Square - Agrippa can cancel into a shield ram at any time during a normal 
   weapon combo before the final hit of each combo.

>> ROCK <<

You are totally open to an attack when grabbing a rock and while throwing it, 
but a rock hit is a guaranteed weapon drop.  Keep that last part in mind.  
These are mainly used for loading catapults.

Moves and combos:

-- X - Rock toss.

>> BARREL (Empty or Oil-filled) <<

It can be risky to go after these during an arena battle, but if you manage to 
hit an enemy with a barrel full of oil, they will be a sitting duck for a torch 
hit.  Some barrels do not contain oil though, so it is a gamble.  Throw oil-
filled barrels at enemies with torches for some instant fires.

Moves and combos:

-- X - Barrel toss.

>> SLING (Stone or Oil) <<

A sling can be useful from a distance if the enemy sits still long enough, but 
for the most part it is totally useless.  Preparing to throw a rock from a 
sling will leave you wide open to an attack.

Moves and combos:

-- Square - Stone (oil) toss.

>> BOW (Normal or Flame) <<

The bow is good to wear your enemies down with from a distance and for constant 
pressure, but it is not too damaging.  For the fire bow, it is much like the 
regular bow by itself, but if the enemy is consumed in oil, this weapon is 
priceless.

Moves and combos:

-- Square - Shoot an arrow.

>> TORCH <<

This weapon is basically useless unless the enemy is consumed in oil.  It can 
be used to light pools of oil into flames also.  It only annoys enemies by 
stunning them for a few seconds otherwise.

-- Square - Wave the torch.

>> ROSE <<

Roses are only used to boost your Salvos.  You can attack, appeal to the crowd, 
or throw a rose to the crowd for some extra Salvos.

Moves and combos:

-- X - Thorns of the Rose.  The Rose's "attack".

-------------------
OCTAVIANUS' WEAPONS
-------------------

>> APPLE or STONE <<

These are basically used to get the enemies' attention, but you can also throw 
them at the enemies for fun.  Sometimes it is required that you throw them.

>> BANANA PEELS <<

Put a banana peel in a foe's path for an instant knock out.  The foe will not 
notice the banana peel on the ground and will slip on it.

>> JUG, OLIVE OIL POT, HONEY POT, WINE FLASK <<

Strike a guard or foe with this to knock them out.  After they are knocked down 
Octavianus can steal their clothes or take valuable items from them.  The Olive 
Oil Pot and Honey Pot can take out multiple foes with the liquid it will leave 
on the ground, which will cause them to slip if they pass through it.  While in 
the maid outfit, Octavianus can carry a jug around freely without being 
noticed.

>> DARTS or PENS <<

These are mainly used for distracting your foes.  Use the first person button 
(R2) for more precise aiming.

>> FROGS or RATS <<

These animals can be used to frighten off maids or waitresses found in the 
game.  Lay them down with the appropriate direction on the directional pad and 
they will move toward the maids or waitresses or throw them in the direction of 
the maids or waitresses to make them run.

>> FLOUR <<

This is only found on one stage, and it is extremely useful when combined with 
a jug.  Tap Square to throw flour at your foes, then strike them with a jug as 
they stumble around blindly.

-- FIRST BATTLE --

CITY ARENA -- Practice Round -- Elimination

o-----------------o
|   Gold - ------ |
| Silver - ------ |
| Bronze - ------ |
o-----------------o

This first arena battle is designed to get you familiar with the controls.  
Agrippa must start without any weapons so you will basically have to take what 
you can get when you first start out.  Immediately run up and grab the Gladius 
and start taking down your opponents.  Use Agrippa's ram attack to make the 
gladiators drop their weapons or try to use the X button when in close to steal 
the weapon right out of their hand when your Gladius breaks.  Wear them down 
with a weapon, then try to do something special to finish them off as they 
stagger.  Bash their head in with a supra attack from the mace, suplex them, 
throw a weapon at them.  Show off with the final hit and appeal to the crowd in 
the hope of getting a powerful weapon.

In the second room grab the Shield and use it combined with a smaller weapon to 
defeat the gladiator in the back with the bow.  Two more gladiators will storm 
into the arena from the back.  Try not to let them get ahold of any big weapons 
if the crowd throws them to you.

In the third room you must kill unarmed prisoners to please the crowd.  They 
will simply drop to their knees exposing them to a one hit kill or run around 
the arena in a panic.  The Roman guard to the side can be killed as well if 
your bloody frenzy is not satisfied with just the prisoners.  When killing the 
prisoners, be sure to appeal to the audience to get some better weapons for the 
fight ahead.  After disposing of the prisoner a big gladiator will come through 
the gates.  He's not too much of a problem if you have any kind of weapon.  The 
main move to watch out for is his ram attack, which can be avoided by running 
to the side.  His Maul swing can be easily avoided by stepping back out of the 
way as he starts to swing.  Get behind him and hit him if he keeps guarding 
your attacks.  Defeat him to finish the stage.
                                                                         [WT01]

-- FOREST OF GERMANIA --

> Germanic Camp

Objective: Mobilize your troops

Break the boxes around the area for a few item pickups.  Be sure to grab the 
Roma Shield from the set of two boxes off to the side.  The helmet inside the 
box in the cave is useless since your current helmet is much stronger.  Walk 
down the path in the upper east portion of the map and talk to the Roman 
soldier.

Three barbarians will attack.  Wear them down with your current weapon and pick 
up one of their weapons when your current weapon breaks.  Hit them with the 
shield first and then do a weapon combo for some extra hits.  If they start to 
stagger from weakness, use a charged supra attack for an instant kill with any 
weapon.

Objective: Find Pansa

Talk to some fellow Romans to gather information and leave the Forum.  You must 
talk to the guy with the robe near the entrance to leave this area.

-- SENATE HOUSE --

Walk down the street ahead until you reach the Senate Gates.

Sneak up behind the first few barbarians down the trail and target them then 
throw a weapon at them (Triangle) to take them out quickly.  Don't pick up 
their weapons, your Gladius is much stronger.  Once the bridge next to the 
waterfall is reached, get behind the wrecked wagon.  Use the R2 button to get 
the barbarian up above in your sites and throw your Gladius at him for another 
instant kill.  There is another barbarian behind the crate to the left side 
across the bridge.  Make sure you have a weapon before you enter the next area! 
Take the meat with you if you do not need it just yet.  Climb the ladder and 
enter the cave.

> Fort Rear Gate

Stay to the left and sneak up behind the barbarian guarding the front gate.  
Crouch behind the trees and he will not notice you.  Throw a weapon at him for 
an instant kill.  If he notices you, two other barbarians will join him and 
make getting inside the fort much harder than it should be.  He will leave you 
with the GERMANIC TRIBE FORT KEY.

> Germanic Tribe Fort

Don't go down the corridor just yet.  Wait by the wall and a barbarian will 
pass by in the distance.  Quietly sneak around the corner and throw a weapon at 
him. There is some meat in the crate further around the corner on the left.  In 
the area where the barbarian came from you will run across one more barbarian.  
Once you get further into the fort, your men will storm the camp.  At this 
point you can either help out your fellow soldiers or run by them.  A few 
barbarians will stand in your path, but the main threat will come from the 
archers up high in the later area.  Throw a weapon (preferably and axe) at them 
for a one-hit kill.  In the second area, try to carry either a Roma Shield or a 
piece of meat in your left hand for the battle ahead.  Keep moving until you 
arrive at a cell that is holding a captured Roman soldier.  Do not grab the 
meat in the crate just yet if you do not need it.  Defeat the barbarian 
guarding the cell to get the FORT PRISON KEY.  Use the key to open the cell 
door.

===============================================================================

> Boss - BARCA

Recommended Weapon: Anything you can get ahold of.

Thanks to the little space you have to maneuver around in, this battle can be 
pretty tough your first time through.  If your fellow soldiers manage to draw 
his attention then hit from the back as he attacks them.  His main attack is 
his axe swipe, which is blockable if you have a shield.  He also has an 
overhead strike that he will sometimes do after the first swing.  When he 
starts his ram attack, run to the sides to avoid it.  Try to hit him sparingly 
as he recovers from his attacks.  Use any weapon that you can find lying on the 
ground.  It is possible to knock his axe out of his hand, and you can actually 
use it if you can grab it quickly - throw a Mace at him to make him drop it, 
then grab it quickly.  It takes off a good chunk of life if you charge each 
swing, but the weapon is very weak in strength causing it to break easily.  
Step in and out from his attacks and you should be able make him swing and be 
able to avoid it in the process.  Attack him while he recovers from each attack 
and you'll whittle his life down in no time.  After his axe breaks, or after 
you steal his axe, he will go for the weapons lying around on the ground.  He 
is completely open to any type of attack at that time.  If you haven't gotten 
it before the battle, there is some meat in a wooden crate near the cell and a 
Gladius in the other crate.

-- PANSA'S HOUSE --

Objective: Find a way inside the Senate Storehouse.

You might want to familiarize yourself with the location of Octavianus' Room.  
From the area you start, enter the room behind you and jump on top of the 
cabinet.  Drop out the window and down the boxes to find the door to his room. 
You may also want to enter the Storage Area right next to Pansa's House for 
some extra coins.  Collect the Silver Fortune Coins around the area and head 
for the Forum.

Coin Locations

- On the floor to Pansa's left.
- Directly in front of the entrance to Octavianus' Room.
- To the left above the entrance to the Storage Area.  Lean against the wall 
  from the wooden platform of Pansa's House or from the crack in the wall in 
  the Storage Area (2F).

> Storage Area

Coin Locations

- Climb up the ladder and it will be at the top.
- Lean against the wall after you climb the ladder and it will be at the end 
  near the exit.

-- THE FORUM --

Talk to the Senator and the guards.  It seems that the Roman guards are being 
underpaid for their duties...how unfortunate.  Leave the Forum area and head 
for the Senate Gates

Coin Locations

- As you enter the Forum, turn right and run all the way to the first two small 
  pillars on the right.  Look in between them.
- On top of the speaker platform, to left of the guards and the Senator.
- In front of the doors of the big building in the back.

-- SENATE HOUSE --

> In Front of Senate

Save your game in front of the Senate Storehouse and talk to the guard.  If you 
did not visit the Forum and talk to the guards, then you will not be able to 
get inside.  Talk to him and when he asks you to state your business, tell him 
"I come bearing important news.", "There's trouble in the Forum.", "The Army's 
gone on strike.", "It's about negotiations for unpaid wages."  Any answer will 
suffice for the remainder of questions and he will give you a silver coin.  
Enter the Senate Storehouse as he runs away.

Coin Locations

- Persuade the guard to leave and he will give you one.

> Senate Vault

Walk down the left hall and walk behind the crate when the guard enters (you 
don't need to duck).  After he walks over to the area in the back, go toward 
the door that he was guarding and enter.  Crouch and move behind the wooden 
furniture and follow the guard in the back as he enters the next room (stay 
behind him, though not too close).  Walk around the side of the bookshelves.  
Go to the far side and you will see a door off to the left.  Make sure the 
guard has his back to you and enter the room.  Grab a jug from the table behind 
the Senator (O) and strike him with if from behind (X).  Stand beside his body 
and take his toga (O).  While in disguise, you must only walk and you cannot do 
any of Octavianus' stealth moves (crouching, walk clinging, running) or you 
will arouse suspicion.  If you grab an item you must hide it behind your back 
(R1 + L1) and keep your front side to each person.  Leave the Senate Vault and 
walk across the street to the Senate House and talk to the guard.

Coin Locations

- To the right of the first crate off to the right when you first enter.
- On the right side of the room with the three guards.
- Knock out the leftmost guard in the room with the three guards (gold).

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

This is a pretty hard gold coin to get.  The guard on the left side of the room 
with the three guards carries it.  Don't worry about the first guard that walks 
down the corridor.  Walk into the room with the Senator, but do not strike him 
just yet.  Pick up either jug and walk into the area with the pacing guard.  
Walk behind the bookshelf and wait till the guard walks toward the door with 
the Senator.  Strike him when he reaches the door and steal his armor.  Drag 
the unconscious guard's body behind the bookshelves to the side of the room.  
Go back and grab another jug.  Walk near the room with the three guards, and 
just before you get to the doorway whistle - this will lure the closest guard.  
Stand behind the bookshelves and wait until he enters the room and leaves, then 
quickly jump out and strike him as he walks back through the doorway.  This is 
where it gets hard.  IMMEDIATELY drag his body behind the bookshelf before the 
guards in the other room enter.  Run to either room and grab another jug.  This 
time stand right next to the door entrance and whistle - this will lure another 
guard.  Hide behind the bookshelf and strike him as he walks away like the last 
guard.  You will have to hide his body just as quickly as the last guard's body 
since the other will come to check out the noise.  Now, grab another jug and 
strike the other guard to get your gold coin.  Go back and strike the Senator 
and take his clothes like you normally would do.

> Senate House Courtyard

Walk by the guards and enter the Senate House.

> Senate Hall South

There is a guard guarding the door in which you need to enter.  Grab a jug and 
stand to the left of the statue and whistle (X + Square) to catch his 
attention.  As he walks around one side, go around the other and sneak up 
behind him and strike him.  Take the HALL OF POMPEY KEY and the Gold Fortune 
Coin.  You can also take his armor if you want.  Use the key on the door that 
the guard was standing next to.

Coin Locations

- Knock out the lone guard (gold).

> Hall of Pompey

Once you walk down the hall, go into the meeting room and save your game on the 
pedestal in the back.  Enter through the next door in the hall.

Coin Locations

- On the far left as you enter the Meeting Room
- On the emblem engraved in the floor of the Meeting Room.
- Behind the second torch in the hall.

> Senate Hall North

Duck and peep through the door (L2 + O) to hear a conversation between Cicero 
and Marcus.  Walk further down the hall until you see some rope to the right.  
Wait for the guard to turn his back, pick up the rope, and sneak behind him to 
strangle him (press Square, then tap Square).  Walk back to the doorway with 
the Roman soldier is guarding and sneak up behind him and strange him.  Walk 
into the Library and strangle the guard behind the left bookshelf.  Leave him 
behind there.  The door in the back has a guard behind it.  Stand next to the 
vase and whistle to get the guard's attention.  Hide in the vase and wait until 
he searches and starts to walk off, then jump out of the vase and strangle him. 
Inside the room there is letter to Caesar from Vipsanius on the table.  Climb 
over the wooden closet and open the red door.

> Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

There are two ropes on the pedestal so this shouldn't be too hard.  Walk past 
the room with Cicero and Marcus and strangle the pacing guard for a Gold 
Fortune Coin.

Coin Locations

- Strangle the pacing guard down the hall from the room with Cicero and Marcus 
  (Gold).
- In the Library on top of the cabinet next to the far left bookshelf.
- On top of the right bookshelf.  Climb the left bookshelf and go across the 
  stone beam to reach the top of the right bookshelf.
- Right next to the table with the letter.
- After viewing the letter, hop onto the cabinet and climb up the side of the 
  wall.  Walk over to the top of the bookcase to find it.

-- THE FORUM --

Objective: Prevent Vipsania's execution.

To start things off, you will have to fight two Roman Soldiers with Spears.  
Dash around them and wait for them to strike, then attack them as they recover. 
They are very weak so you should be able to take them out rather quickly.

===============================================================================

> Boss - DECIUS

Decius is extremely hard in this battle and will give you little chance to hit 
him.  The only way to strike him is to hit him directly after one of his 
attacks - whether it is his lunge attack or during his combo he will be open 
for a slight second.  Any other hit, besides a counter, will be deflected by 
his Sestuses.  Grab the Spear on the ground for a better chance at hitting him. 
This battle is one-sided - whether you win by taking 25% of his life or lose by 
having him taking all of yours, the outcome will be the same.

-- SYRACUSE PRISON --

> Syracuse Prison Entrance

Objective: Find Vipsanius

Walk down the path ahead and climb on top of the yellowish box near the end.  
Climb on top of the rock wall and jump down to the other side.  Through the 
door you will find all types of utensils for knocking out guards.  Grab the 
rope and head through the doorway.  Duck and hug the railing to make your way 
across to the door.  There are guards near the windows so be wary.  Open the 
door and walk over to the doorway on your left.  Strangle the guard inside with 
the rope (do NOT use a jug) and take his armor.  Grab the PRISON KEY 1F on the 
table.  Open the double doors in the back using the prison key.

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

Inside the area where you get the Prison Key, the rightmost guard has the coin. 
Strangle the first guard in the room next to the key and drag him toward the 
rock hall with the door.  Stand next to the right of the doorway to the room 
and whistle.  Hide in the hall and wait for the guards to search around.  As 
they leave, grab the last one and strangle him with the rope.  Drag his body to 
the rock hall as well.  Whistle again in the same area and strangle the last 
guard in the same manner and he will have the Gold Fortune Coin.

Coin Locations

- When you first enter, walk through the right doorway (made of rock) and it 
  will be inside the prison down the right side.
- Climb on top of the yellowish wooden box and climb onto the rock wall.  The 
  coin will be near the end where you can jump off.
- Once on the other side of the rock wall, it will be in the back on the left 
  side.
- In the far south of the rock corridor on the west side.  Look at the map.
- Knock out the rightmost guard in the room with the key (gold).

> Syracuse Prison 1F

Climb up the crate to the east.  In the back, duck down and fall through the 
hole in the wall.  The first door is locked, but the second is unlocked.  Walk 
to the second room and pull yourself to the top of the stone platform.  Duck 
and enter the small crawlspace.  After you drop down, unlock the door in the 
room and go up the stairs.

Coin Locations

- Behind a small crate in the stack of crates on the east side.
- On the west side behind the furthest rock.

> Syracuse Prison 2F

Walk by the guard and head for the door furthest to the left beside the Break 
Room door.  The Break Room door is locked for the moment.  Stay away from the 
guard since he will usually see through your disguise without questioning.  
Keep your distance from the prisoners - the first one gets rowdy.  There is a 
ladder next to the empty cell.

Coin Locations

- In the furthest cell to the right.
- To the left as you step onto the prison walkway.

> Syracuse Prison 3F

Save your game and walk down the hall.

===============================================================================

Boss - Roman Soldiers with Flame Bows

Run to the nearest torch and grab it.  Hide behind the bridge.  One hit from 
any arrow will kill Octavianus so you must be sure to take cover often.  You 
must hit the ropes that hold up the bridge in order to win this battle.  Only 
step out from the cover of the bridge while they ready another arrow and hit 
each rope no more than two times during each trip.  You may have to step out 
every now and then to get them to fire.  It should only take one torch to burn 
all four ropes.

===============================================================================

After the battle climb the wooden planks on the wall across the bridge and walk 
down the corridor.  Open the door to end this segment.

Coin Locations

- Before going across the bridge, look in the back behind the rock on the left. 
  You will have to run against the camera angle.
- To the right of the bridge before going across it.
- Once on the other side of the bridge, it will be on the floor of the 
  corridor.

-- SYRACUSE PRISON --

> Syracuse Prison 3F

Objective: Escape Syracuse Prison

First things first, save that game!  For the rooms that are to follow in this 
segment you will have defeat the Roman guards in your path and protect 
Octavianus in the process.  If Octavianus dies, you die.  All you're basically 
doing at this part is backtracking through the rooms Octavianus just visited so 
you should know your way through the prison pretty well.  Charge through the 
door in front of Agrippa and begin your escape.  Take the weapons of each 
soldier you kill if your current weapon is damaged.  The third soldier will 
have a shield for you.  The gate across the bridge is now open so the stairs to 
the second floor can now be reached.

> Syracuse Prison 2F

There are plenty of soldiers here that can be snuck up on so be sure to stealth 
kill (target and throw your weapon from a distance) if the option is available. 
Start out with a shield hit and then chain that into sword strikes to take out 
the Roman soldiers quicker.  At the end of the prison kill the guard with the 
Spear to get the BREAK ROOM KEY.  He also has a Roma Helmet and, of course, his 
Spear.  The crate to the side contains a piece of Meat.  When you leave the 
room, be sure to break the large crate at the end of the hall for a Halberd.  
Charged X swings with the Halberd will cut the arms of your enemies - a charged 
supra attack (toward + X) will do the same thing.  Travel down the stairs to 
the side.

> Syracuse Prison 1F

The first Roman soldier with the Spear has the CELL BLOCK KEY for the door at 
the end.  In the next room a soldier with a bow will shoot you from up high as 
three other soldiers charge you.  Kill the first three quickly and work your 
way to the stairs to get rid of the one with the bow.  Stay next to the wall 
and the soldier with the bow won't be able to hit you.  The red door at the top 
has a crate with a piece of meat inside.  Carry it in your left hand and a 
sword in the other if you think you might need it.  Go through the double doors 
at the top to reach the next area.

> Syracuse Prison Entrance

A soldier to the right will immediately attack once the room is entered.  Be 
sure to take the right path on your way out and you will be able to surprise a 
few guards with a thrown weapon from the back.  Run toward the area where 
Octavianus started his last mission.

-- FOREST --

Objective: Defeat the Bandits

When the cutscene ends, bandits will attack both Agrippa and Claudia.  Don't 
worry too much about Claudia, since she is immortal for the moment.  Look for 
the bandit with the Maul and attack him first.  Defeat him and take his Maul. 
Use a charged Square swing (or charged supra attack) to break the arms of 
whatever enemies are in front of you.  Once an enemy is crippled, that will 
limit his attacks greatly.  Grab a dagger to finish off a staggering bandit 
from behind with a throat cut.  There is some meat in the crate to the side. 
This battle is merely a preview of things to come in the arena.
                                                                         [WT02]

-- UNDERGROUND ARENA --

Objective: Prove yourself to Sextus

> Round 1 - The basics of one-handed weapons

The first round is designed to get you used to one-handed weapons.  You will 
start without a weapon and will need to either steal a weapon or break one of 
the crates for one.  If you get a Scimitar, use charged swings (X or Supra 
attack) to chop off the arms of your opponent.  Use a charged attack while they 
stagger for a special kill.  Pick up your enemy's severed head and throw it to 
Sextus to show him that you are indeed worthy of becoming a gladiator - you 
don't have to, but it doesn't hurt to show off early.

> Round 2 - The basics of two-handed weapons

Two-handed weapons are where the fun begins.  A charged swing with any of the 
heavier two-handed weapons is basically a guaranteed head/arm crush/cut 
depending on the enemies' life.  The Spear has the longest range of the two-
handed weapons.  It's supra attack can reach incredibly far.  Also, try to do a 
Tornado Maximus swing with the Halberd for some intense damage.

> Round 3 - The basics of one-handed weapons with shields

A one-handed weapon with a shield can make for a very excellent combination for 
one opponent both defensively and offensively.  The shield alone is quite good. 
Use Square to attack with the shield, then chain into an X attack for some good 
combos.  For this round, Sextus will want you to perform a Human Catapult 
(suplex).  Wear your opponent down until he starts to stagger then get behind 
him and press Square to grab him.  Tap X or Square to suplex him.  An enemy can 
also be used as a shield after the grab if you do not press any buttons 
afterward.

> Round 4 - Impress Sextus with your abilities

Basically the more Salvos (or points) you earn for doing special kills, the 
more the crowd (or Sextus in this case) will appreciate your performance.  
After doing enough special kills or Salvo moves (see Salvo List), you can 
appeal to the crowd (Square + X) to double your Salvo points and possibly get a 
more powerful weapon.

> Round 5 - Fight Claudia?

===============================================================================

> Boss - CLAUDIA

For this battle you will only have the option to use a wooden sword.  There are 
two pieces of meat lying around on the arena floor if you start to run low in 
life.  Claudia's attacks consist basically of kick combos and an occasional 
roll and stab.  Wait until she finishes an attack then combo her, or charge a 
supra attack as she finishes an attack or kick combo to immediately counter 
her.  It's good to fight her with a wooden sword in your right hand and a piece 
of meat in your other hand so you can take a few victory chomps after knocking 
her down.  Sextus will throw you a new wooden sword as your first one weakens.

===============================================================================

-- TRAINING FACILITY --

> Underground Arena

It's a good idea to have a look around the living quarters to get used to the 
various rooms.  Talk to the guy near the save point to engage in Underground 
Arena Battles.  These are basically practice battles that will prepare you for 
battles to come.  Only the "Novice" rounds are available at the moment.  Go 
into Sextus' Area 1F, which is near the outside gladiator Training Ground, and 
talk to him when you are ready to start some City Arena challenges.

CITY ARENA -- Round I -- Battle Royale

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 65,000 |
| Silver - 40,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Kill all of your opponents.

2) Get at least 15,000 Salvos.

Just like the first arena battle, Agrippa will start out without a weapon in 
this one as well.  The first objective is to retrieve a weapon from somewhere. 
The statues on the side near the area where you start hold a Scimitar and a 
Mace, and the background statues hold a Maul and Halberd.  The crowd will toss 
a few weapons into the arena at the beginning as well.  Try to ram an opponent 
to make him drop his weapon or steal it right from his hands.  Once you get a 
weapon, I would recommend going to one of the statues in the back and getting 
either the Maul or the Halberd from either statue (break it).  Once you get 
ahold of either one, use it to wound your enemies so they can't fight back too 
well (break their arms).  Try to go for the big gladiators first.  Look for any 
weak opponents and take them out with a charge attack for a special kill, then 
appeal to the crowd.  The hardest part about this battle is getting a weapon, 
but if you manage to get a big weapon and wound some of the other gladiators 
then this round is yours.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Salvos, Salvos, Salvos!  You will need to perform many different types of Salvo 
moves in order to get a gold ranking here.  From the start, go over to the 
Scimitar statue immediately and break it as fast as you can.  Use the Scimitar 
to cut off the limbs of any gladiator that comes up to you.  Appeal to the 
crowd with their head or throw their arms into the crowd if you there aren't 
too many opponents around you.  Once the Scimitar breaks, find a Maul or 
Halberd - hopefully, the crowd has thrown one by now, if not, then get one from 
the statues in the back.  Use a staggering opponent as a shield if you find one 
limping around the arena.  Use the bigger weapon to start breaking or cutting 
off arms.  Stomp your opponents as they roll in agony to boost your Salvos.  Do 
not break the big guys helmets!  You will need those helmets to boost your 
Salvos once they die.  If the audience throws a rose, grab it and appeal to 
them with it for three times the Salvo points.  Pick up a Scimitar when your 
opponents get really weak and start chopping off heads.  Try equipping 
different types of helmets and weapons for some extra Salvo points (See Salvo 
List).

CITY ARENA -- Round II -- Elimination

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 65,000 |
| Silver - 40,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat all of your opponents.

Start out with whatever weapon of your choosing and immediately run up and hit 
the gladiator with the shield.  Knock him down, then run and climb the ladder.  
Defeat the female gladiator or make her get down off the platform.  Get rid of 
her on the ground if she climbs down and take out the male gladiator with the 
shield as well.  On the other side, there is a big gladiator with a Halberd and 
normal size gladiator in the back.  Run to the other side and try to get up the 
ladder as best you can.  If the gladiators knock you off, hit them and run back 
to the ladder.  Get to the top and make the female gladiator retreat or kill 
her.  If you are weaponless when you make it to the top, then ram her, steal 
the bow and climb back down.  After both females have been disposed of the rest 
shouldn't be much of a problem.  Appeal to the crowd and they may throw you a 
Magnus Sword, which will help out greatly.  Wound the big guy and he shouldn't 
bother you too much.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start the battle without a weapon.  Run up to the male gladiator and grab his 
weapon and knock him down with it.  Climb the ladder and defeat the female, 
then get rid of the male below.  Run to the other side and climb the ladder to 
get rid of the other female gladiator.  Knock the other opponents around and 
perform as many Salvos as you can.  Appeal to the crowd and they should throw 
you a Magnus Sword if you have done enough bloodshed.  Use a charged X, X combo 
with the Magnus Sword to totally amputate the limbs of whatever enemy is in 
front of you and stomp on him as he falls.  Do the same to a second enemy.  If 
you cut off his head then quickly grab it and appeal to the crowd.  They should 
throw a second Magnus Sword by then.  Chop down the rest of the gladiators with 
what is left.  If you take off any arms then smack the enemy with one and throw 
the arm into the crowd afterwards.  The key to a gold ranking lies in the 
Magnus Sword for this round.

CITY ARENA -- Round III -- Beast Hunt

o----------------o
|   Gold - 9,000 |
| Silver - 5,000 |
| Bronze - 3,000 |
o----------------o

Requirements:

1) Finish off all the beasts.

As long as you have a weapon, this battle should be a piece of cake.  Start out 
with whichever weapon of your choosing and slash away at the tigers.  Make sure 
to keep an eye on their actions.  If they jump back, they are about to lunge at 
you so be ready to dodge.  Try to work on one at a time and you should be able 
to take them out pretty quickly.  Appeal to the crowd after performing a few 
Salvo moves and they will throw a spear to you.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start the battle without a weapon as usual.  The crowd will throw a Gladius to 
you right at the starting before the tigers even start attacking.  Grab the 
Gladius and perform combos and charge attacks to boost your Salvos.  After 
performing enough Salvo moves, appeal to the crowd and they will throw you a 
Spear. Throw your current weapon at a tiger and grab the Spear.  Combo and 
charge attack with the Spear as you did with the Gladius.  If you appeal to the 
crowd after some more Salvo moves they might throw a Maul to you, which will 
open up a whole new set of Salvo moves for you to obtain.  Be careful when 
attacking with the Maul however since the attacks are very slow and will leave 
you open to a tiger lunge.

Make your way to the Forum.

Coin Locations

- On the wooden area overlooking the streets of Pansa's House.
- Inside the room that allows you to jump through the window to get to 
  Octavianus' Room, at the foot of the bed.
- As you lean against the wall when coming out of the space that leads to 
  Octavianus' Room, the coin will be by the higher area across from the 
  merchant.

> Storage Area

- In the area with all the rats near the ladder.
- On the wooden platform above the rats.  After climbing the ladder, lean 
  against the wall and cross the board.

-- CITY GATES --

> Merchant's Area

- Inside the pub next to the right counter.
- Right in front of the stolen goods merchant (To get back there to him, you 
  will need to lean against the wall near the middle of the area (west side), 
  by some boxes and squeeze behind some buildings).
- Up above the merchant in the middle area (east side) (You will have to climb 
  a box to the left of the merchant).

> City Gates

- As you enter, it will be to the far east.
- Look for a space in between the left and middle corridor right before the 
  exit.
- Beside the women on the second floor of the east house (throw a frog or rat 
  near them to get it).

-- THE FORUM --

Talk to the citizen to the west as you enter the Forum.  After talking to him, 
you need to speak to the people, so go to the soupbox...er, speaker platform 
and walk to the edge and press O to talk to the people.  Convince them to storm 
the Senate House.  There are a variety of speeches you can use to enact them 
into doing so.  Talk to the Senator with the beard afterwards to get a Silver 
Coin.  Leave and go to the Senate House.

Coin Locations

- On the west side of the entrance wall.
- In the far east right before you exit next to a pillar.
- Up the stairs, behind the third pillar from the left.
- After talking to the people and getting them to leave, talk to the Senator 
  with the beard.

-- SENATE HOUSE --

> In Front of Senate

Just look at the mess you've made!  Why someone could sneak right into 
the...exactly!  Sneak inside the Senate via the door off to the left as you 
enter this area.

> Front Garden

Objective: Follow Cicero

For the following areas, if Cicero sees you, then the game is over.  Follow 
behind Cicero but keep your distance and stay hidden behind the hedge (crouch). 
After the first cutscene stay out of the Senator's site and follow Cicero into 
the building. 

Coin Locations

- In the far east behind a tree.  You will have to sneak past the two guards to 
  get it.  Be sure to get it before following Cicero or the Senator will make 
  getting to it that much harder.
- Next to the first crate as you walk toward Cicero, there is a path inside the 
  hedge.  Crouch and follow it to the back to find a coin.
- On the side of the building Cicero enters, in an alcove.  You'll have to 
  climb up to it.

> Senate Hall West

Walk down the hall a little ways and go to the door on the south side closest 
to you.

Coin Locations

- In the room where you first start, in front of the first set of seats.
- In the room where you first start, behind the podium.

> Senate Hall South

Go to the room off to the east (to the left of where you enter) and grab the 
toga from the closet on the right side (open it) upon entering the room.  Go 
around the west side when you follow Cicero or else he will see you.  In either 
room, to the north or south of his meeting room, climb the bookcase (south room 
only) and listen to his conversation through the air duct.  Go back to the 
Senate Hall West after the cutscene.

Coin Locations

- Check the closet of the room to the south of Cicero's meeting place.
- On top of the bookcase (climb it) in the room to the south of Cicero's 
  meeting place.

> Senate Hall West

Follow Cicero, but keep your distance.  In fact, don't even stay in the same 
hall as him.  He cannot get ahead of you so don't worry about keeping up with 
him.  Grab one of the jugs in the room off to the side and use it to take the 
pacing guard's helmet and armor.  Walk to the room that Cicero entered.

Coin Locations

- Knock out the guard with the helmet in the room with the three guards (gold).

Getting the Gold Coin

You must strike the pacing guard with a jug and drag his body to the room in 
the north and hide it.  Grab the other jug and go to the corner right before 
you turn to go down the hall next to the room with the three guards.  The guard 
with the helmet has the Gold Coin.  In order to get it, stand in the corner and 
whistle.  Two of the guards will come to check out the sound.  The one with the 
helmet will stay behind if you let him see you in the distance (hide the jug).  
Wait until the other guard returns to the room - back down the hall just enough 
to where the guard with helmet will turn around and go back to the room with 
his buddies.  Walk as fast as you can and strike him from behind.  IMMEDIATELY 
take the Gold Coin from his body and run back to the other room with the 
unconscious guard since the other guards will enter the hall.  If you do this 
quick enough, they will not see you.

> Hall of Pompey

Walk toward the meeting room on the left.

CITY ARENA -- Round IV -- Team Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 25,000 |
| Silver - 15,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break all the opposing team's stone statues before the time limit expires 
   and before they destroy your team's statues.

For this round you will have to work as a team with a fellow gladiator and 
break the statues of the opposing team.  You are required to break three red 
statues.  If you cut off any of the enemies' arms during this battle then that 
is automatic defeat, since they are required to pull levers.  Take advantage of 
this to quickly dispose of surrounding enemies once you get ahold of a big 
weapon.

Start the battle with whichever weapon of your choosing.  Approach the smaller 
gladiator on your team and get him to follow you by pressing O near him.  Climb 
up the ladder and go across the platform to the next ladder.  By the time you 
reach the bottom of the next ladder, the other team should be approaching the 
ladder that you just got of.  Knock them around a little while your partner 
runs over to the switch.  When the gate around the statue lowers, start 
pounding away on it.  After it is destroyed appeal to the crowd and they might 
throw a bigger weapon to you.  If they throw a Halberd that is great, but if 
they throw a Maul, that is perfect!  The Maul can take out a statue in two hits 
if you hit it with two charged overhead (X) strikes.  Climb up the next ladder 
and walk to the end of the platform next to the ladder at the end.  Your 
partner should automatically climb down the ladder and tend to the switch at 
the bottom.  If the other team starts to climb the ladder then knock them back 
down as they reach the top.  Destroy the statue when the gate lowers and get 
down the ladder.  Run toward the back, and your partner should head toward the 
last switch.  Fight off the other gladiators as best you can and destroy the 
last statue once the gate lowers.  If your opponents stay right on top of you, 
move around the statue so that their attacks might just help to destroy their 
own statue for you.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start without a weapon and appeal to the crowd at the beginning and they should 
throw you one.  Use the same strategy as above, but change your weapon once you 
have performed enough Salvo moves with your current weapon.  Be sure to knock 
the enemies off the ladders as they try to climb them.  You may have to take a 
break from destroying the statues to focus on defeating your foes in order to 
boost your Salvos.  The good part about fighting them is that they tend to 
focus on getting by you instead of fighting back.  Appeal to the crowd often 
and they should keep you supplied with weapons.

CITY ARENA -- Round V -- Siege

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 65,000 |
| Silver - 35,000 |
| Bronze - 20,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break into the enemy fortress and defeat the leader.

There is a catapult that you can use off to the side to break the gate or fire 
at an enemy.  I would recommend choosing the Gladius to start off with.  At the 
beginning, run up to the mud pool and grab the hidden rock in the middle.  Make 
your way to the catapult and launch a rock at the gate.  Grab another rock from 
the mud pool on the left and walk up to the big guy with the Halberd and throw 
it at him.  This will make him drop his Halberd.  Grab the Halberd and chop off 
his arms.  Grab one of the rocks and make your way back to the catapult once 
again and try to hit the archer at the top.  Dispose of the gladiator to the 
right as well and make your way through the gate.  One of the first two 
gladiators will have the key to the locked gate off to the side.  Defeat him 
and use the key that he drops on the keyhole on the side of the wall beside the 
gate to unlock it.  There is a piece of meat lying on the ground on the other 
side.  Soon some gladiators with Spears will come through the door after you.  
This is where things can get ugly.  Try to steal one of their Spears or throw a 
rock at them to make them drop it.  Keep the Spears away from them and defeat 
them quickly.  Use a straggling gladiator as a shield if you must.

Climb the ladder and defeat the female gladiator if you haven't gotten rid of 
her yet.  If she has run out of arrows she will try to climb down the ladder 
and retrieve a weapon.  Try to block her off from the ladder.  Climb down the 
ladder on the other side and a gladiator with a Spear will be blocking your 
path.  He always tries to throw his Spear at you.  Grab the Spear from the 
ground after he throws it and finish him off with it.  At the top of the next 
ladder will be the leader.  This is not an ordinary female gladiator - she will 
hardly ever tire or weaken.  Chopping off her arm will not really do any good 
as she will only use a one-handed weapon anyway and her kicks are her most 
deadly attacks.  Be careful about attacking her when she is on the ground since 
she will sometimes do a spinning kick as she gets up.  If she tries to run and 
get a weapon from near the beginning, wait for her to come back and knock her 
off the ladder as she makes her way back toward you.

Gold Ranking Strategy

This is a hard one to get a gold ranking in.  You will have to perform every 
Salvo you can think of for a gold on this one.  Since the weapons are limited 
to a Halberd, Gladius, and Spear for the most part, that can be a little hard. 
If you manage to chop off a head with the Halberd at any time, then by all 
means, pick it up and appeal to the crowd with it.  Start the battle with 
either the bow or with no weapon.  If you start with the bow, then get on the 
left side of the fortress and shoot the big guy near the gate until you run 
out.  Grab the rock from the middle mud pool and throw it at him and grab his 
Halberd when he drops it.  Cut off an arm and stomp him while he's on the 
ground.  Hit him with some rocks a few more times to gain another Salvo. After 
he's gone, carry a rock to the catapult and destroy the gate.  Try to find 
another rock and aim for the archer up above and launch the rock at her.  When 
the gladiators with Spears enter the arena, try to weaken one of the other 
gladiators and use him as a human shield.  Steal one of the Spears and weaken 
the gladiators.  Try to finish each one of them off with something different.  
Throw a weapon, suplex, stab them with a Gladius, or cut them half with a 
Halberd.  Make sure to do at least one Tornado Maximus with the Halberd as 
well.  Knock either the archer or the leader off of a ladder while they climb 
up or down for an extra Salvo.  If you do not have over 50,000 Salvos by the 
time you climb the first ladder, you will have a very difficult time achieving 
a gold ranking in this battle.  Stun the leader at the end and drag her to the 
ladder (put your back to the ladder) and suplex her off for a good bit of 
points.  Last but not least, throw a weapon at the audience.

CITY ARENA -- Round VI -- Boss Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 10,000 |
| Silver -  6,000 |
| Bronze -  4,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat Barca.

===============================================================================

Boss - BARCA

Recommended Weapon: Your choice (the Magnus Sword will pulverize him if you can 
get it from the audience).

Exclusive Salvos

(thanks to KaraPitchou for the additional info on Salvo #154)

-- Goal!! (#151) - Destroy a pillar by having Barca kick a rock toward it.  
   Hide behind a pillar as he runs toward a rock so he will kick it at the 
   pillar.
-- Stone's Throw Away (#152) - To get this one, Barca must throw a rock toward 
   you and destroy a pillar.  If he doesn't grab one, toss a rock to him.  
   Stand in front of the pillar then dodge to the side quickly or stand behind 
   the pillar.
-- The End of Pompei (#153) - All the pillars in the arena must be destroyed. 
   It's best to lead him toward them and let him destroy each pillar.
-- Rock-Solid Dodge (#154) - Dodge a rock kicked by Barca.  Dodge the rock by 
   stepping to the side using the left analog and it will eventually give you 
   credit for it. *UPDATE* Stay really close to him as he kicks the rock then 
   step to the side and this will work every time.  The closer you are, the 
   better.
-- The Old Switcheroo (#155) - Make him lay his weapon down or knock it out of 
   his hand and grab it off the ground.  The best way to do this is to throw a 
   rock toward him and grab his weapon when he drops his axe to catch the rock.
   You can knock it out of his hand by throwing weapons at him, but he doesn't
   drop it too often this way.  Make sure to do this near the beginning of the
   battle, before he breaks his axe.

He will usually start the battle by running to the nearest rock on the ground 
and will proceed to kick it toward you.  Keep running or step to the side to 
avoid this.  It is best to let him finish his kicking frenzy before bothering 
to attack him.  You can pick up a rock and hit him with it, but he must be in 
the middle of one of his attacks or you must interrupt one of his rock kicks. 
It's best to try for at least one rock hit on him to boost your salvos.

For this battle you need to utilize, what I like to call, the "step-in, step-
out" technique that you used in the first battle.  Barca will try to swipe you 
with his axe each time you get in close to him and will take a few seconds to 
recover from each swing - that is your cue to combo him or smack him with a 
charged hit.  Target him and get in close.  The moment you see him readying his 
attack, step out, and hit him as he recovers.  A normal two hit combo, charged 
attack, or charged combo attack will work nicely.  Watch out for his ram attack 
while attacking him.  As soon as he kneels down to start the ram, release your 
targeting and run to the side to avoid the attack.  If you ever need to break a 
statue for a weapon during the fight, stand behind the statue and let him 
destroy it while he tries to hit you.  This will help to break his weapon 
faster and keep you from doing too much work.

When his weapon is broken, he will ram the nearest pillar and use the pillar to 
attack you.  While he is equipped with the pillar he will have much more reach 
when compared to the axe.  The pillar swing is unblockable so you will have to 
avoid it.  The same method still applies to this part of the battle, but you 
will have to be much more careful because he steps in slightly right before 
each swing to increase the already long reach of the pillar.  He has an 
overhead attack, which he will rarely do usually after a pillar swing or if you 
get too close to him.  Each two hit attack or charged attack that you get on 
him while he recovers from a swing will cause him to drop the pillar.  If you 
can manage to get ahold of a Magnus Sword during the second part of this battle 
you can really tear him up with charged swings at just about any time.  When he 
has 25% of his second to last bar left and is nearing his final bar, you can 
take advantage of this, and get behind him as he staggers and perform a suplex. 
This can be done any time that you can manage to get behind him when his life 
it low.  The suplex will take about 25% of his life, and the crowd will love 
you for it!

Gold Ranking Strategy

It is incredibly easy to get a gold ranking on this round without even really 
trying.  Start without a weapon and grab a rock and toss it to him.  Grab his 
weapon when he drops it.  Hit him a few times with it and throw the weapon at 
him.  Pick up another rock and try to time it so that you throw it right before 
he kicks a rock and it will hit him.  Destroy all four pillars by doing it 
yourself or having him do it for you.  Appeal to the crowd after enough Salvos 
have been achieved and they should throw you a Magnus Sword.  He easily falls 
prey to Magnus Sword attacks so show no mercy in hitting him.  Make sure to 
suplex him when he is low in life to boost your Salvos greatly.

-- TAVERN AREA --

> In Front of the Tavern

As you start, you will notice a citizen in the back will trip over a banana 
peeling.  Hey, that sounds like a good idea!  Pick up the banana peel and take 
it with you just in case.  The Tavern is in the center of the map, but the guy 
at the front door will not let you in and a swarm of bees guard the back door. 
There is a fellow Roman trying, ever so graciously, to deliver honey to the 
tavern through the back door, but the bees stop him from entering.  The strange 
thing is that he keeps attempting it and will not use the front door.  Watch 
the way he walks to the door and place that banana peel in his path next to the 
door (D-pad right).  He will trip on the banana peel and drop the honey pot.  
The bees will fly away from the Tavern entrance to get the honey.  Problem 
solved!  If you accidentally cause him to slip too early, wake him up and he 
will go to get another honey pot.

Coin Locations

- Behind a counter in the far west.
- Near the center of the map, to the left of a torch.

> Tavern

Open the door and walk into the seating area.  After the cutscene, crouch and 
walk up to the booth in front of you.  Stay right against the booth and let it 
guide you around the corner to the kitchen.  Keep an eye on the waitress in the 
back while sneaking and make sure that she is not facing the booth.

This part can be a little tricky if you do it the correct way or the other way. 
Pick up the rat in the kitchen and go back to the area right beside the booth 
that you circled to get into the kitchen.  You can get pretty close to the 
table (while standing) without the Senators seeing you.  Use the R2 button to 
aim and wait for the waitress to walk over to the lone Senator's table in the 
distance.  Toss the rat at her, and she will get scared and run off.  Don't 
worry, even if she runs into you, she will not notice you.  Go back to the 
kitchen and look behind the counter.  There is a crawlspace under the counter 
that you can crawl under.  Follow that path (stay up against the counter) and 
you will reach Marcus' table.  The only time you have to worry about the 
bartender's point of vision is right when you enter the counter area from the 
kitchen and while you sneak around the other side of the counter.  He cannot 
see you from the kitchen at all.

Alternate way

You can easily wait for the waitress to walk away from the counter on her way 
to either Senator's table and walk directly by her.  The camera angle is 
unfriendly once the counter is reached however, so it is best to watch her from 
the kitchen.  You will likely miss out on the rest of the overheard 
conversation this way though since you will have to rush.

Coin Locations

- Right next to the booth that the Senators are sitting at when you first enter 
  the seating area.  It will be to the left of the booth on the side that you 
  start from.
- As you crawl out from under the bar counter it will be to your right.

-- TRAINING FACILITY --

> Gladiator's Dorm

Go to Sextus' Room to start the next set of arena rounds.  If you talk to Dama, 
show him the courtesy of remembering his name.  The "Average" rounds of the 
Underground Arena battles are now unlocked.

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round I -- Rescue

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 35,000 |
| Silver - 25,000 |
| Bronze - 15,000 |
o-----------------o

1) Rescue the prisoner.

2) Escort the prisoner back to the entrance safely.

For this round, you will have to find a male hostage, free him from his cage, 
and lead him back to the beginning.  When starting this battle, be sure to 
choose the Maul.  At the start, lure the little guy toward you so you don't 
have to deal with the blades while defeating him.  After he is taken out, use 
the Maul charged overhead smash (X) to take out each of the rotating blades.  
It should only take one hit.  Go through the door and defeat the next 
gladiator.  There are two pieces of meat in the area behind him.  Through the 
next doorway there are two more gladiators.  One of them has a Maul.  Try to 
beat both of them without using the Maul.  Leave the Maul in the area where 
that gladiator that equipped it was standing.  Go up either ladder and take 
care of the two gladiators with the slings.  The gladiator next to the cage has 
the key.  Defeat him and unlock the cage.  You will need to talk to the hostage 
to get him to follow you.  Once you go to leave, a big gladiator and several 
normal size gladiators will come through the door in the back.  Pick up that 
Maul that I told you to set down earlier and break all of their arms.  They 
will try to go after the hostage, but you should be able to take them down 
quickly if you wound them badly.  Go back toward the door that leads to the 
beginning and several small enemies will ambush you.  Take them out with 
whatever weapons you have left and get back to the beginning.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Be sure to pick the Maul to start out with.  After defeating the small enemy, 
destroy the rotating blades just like above.  Pick up a rock and carry it into 
the next room and toss it at the gladiator.  Try to weaken him and kill him 
with a throat cut from a dagger.  Go back and get the Maul and continue 
normally.  Use the Mace at the top of the platform to bash a head in for some 
more Salvos.  You should be able to get just enough points without trying too 
hard.  Toss all the weapons into the crowd once all the enemies are gone to 
gain some extra Salvos near the end.

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round II -- Elimination

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 70,000 |
| Silver - 40,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat all of your opponents in each room.

This round can be a pain if this is your first time through, but if you can 
manage to get just the right weapons from the audience it shouldn't be too bad. 
Choose to start the battle with the Morning Star.  The gladiator at the 
beginning will pose little threat.  In the room to the southwest (look at your 
map), you will face a smaller enemy and a big gladiator.  You will have a 
choice of two rooms for this arena, but you will have to beat the contents of 
both.  I would highly recommend starting with the southwest room first since it 
is the most deadly room.  This room contains a spike trap, which the enemies 
can knock you into for a one-hit instant death.  DO NOT stand in between the 
spike pits.  Try to always have your back to a wall.  Focus on the smaller 
gladiators at first since they will follow you more quickly.  Run around the 
area and lead them away from the bigger gladiators.  Hopefully the audience 
will throw you a Magnus Sword, which will let you take out the big guys with 
ease.  There is a piece of meat in the middle of the room.  Once you have 
defeated all of your opponents in this room grab the meat along with a weapon 
and head for the next room.

In the other room you will fight two smaller enemies, two normal size enemies, 
and two bigger enemies.  Try to take out the small enemies first since they 
will annoy you the whole time if you try to attack the bigger guys before them. 
The small enemies should fall rather quick depending on the weapon you are 
using.  

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start off with the Morning Star.  Just like the arena battles before, you will 
have to take out the enemies in several ways to boost your Salvos.  The good 
thing about this round is that the audience and gladiators will bring in 
several varieties of weapons so you can do tons of moves to boost your points. 
Be sure to use human shields and throw items to the crowd to really get your 
points up.  Always kill in different ways and appeal to the audience with 
heads.  The Magnus Sword will help you greatly as well.

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round III -- Battle Royale

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 20,000 |
| Silver - 12,000 |
| Bronze -  7,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Kill all of your opponents.

2) Get at least 5,000 Salvos.

Your opponents will basically kill each other in this round, which can be good 
and bad.  Empty barrels and barrels full of oil are spread throughout the area 
along with a few torches.  It is not required to set an enemy on fire - you can 
easily get the required Salvos by killing your enemies in other ways.  Start 
the match out with a Gladius and a Torch.  It's a little risky to go for the 
barrels as the other gladiators will easily grab your weapons.  If you can 
manage to find an opponent with a torch, toss the barrel toward him for an 
instant barbecue if the barrel contains oil.  When you throw a barrel, if it 
makes a oil puddle on the ground, you can run up to the oil puddle and wave the 
torch next to it to make it burst into flames.  Sometimes your opponents will 
actually run through the flames and catch on fire.  If you manage to get ahold 
of a big weapon, use it to wound all the gladiators.  After wounding them 
badly, you can go for some creative kills to boost your Salvos.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start out with the Gladius and the Torch.  Right when the battle starts, run to 
the barrel to Agrippa's left and throw it at the female gladiator.  Use your 
Torch to quickly set her on fire and attack her as she burns.  Try to kill all 
the enemies in a variety of ways with the different weapons spread across the 
arena and you shouldn't have any problem.  The enemies like to kill each other 
quickly so try not to let an opponent steal a kill from you.  Search for 
gladiators that carry torches when you pick up the barrels.

-- TAVERN AREA --

> Tavern Rear Entrance

Objective: Follow Marcus and Cassius

Walk past the Senators and go down the stairs.

> Insulae

Walk down the street to the left.  At the second intersection there will be a 
bandit off to the right side.  Find a banana peel.  There is one in the tall 
building and the smaller building.  There is a crate next to the smaller 
building that you can hide in as well.  Stand in the street midways in between 
the intersection and the crate, place the banana peel there, and whistle.  Hide 
inside the crate, and the bandit will trip on the banana peel when he comes to 
check out the noise.  Steal his clothes and hide his body in the tall building. 
You can easily take out the other bandit down the street the same exact way.  
For the pacing bandit down the street, you can easily just lay a banana peel in 
his path to take care of him.  Grab his mask, you will need it.  Approach the 
two bandits at the end and do not respond to his question - choose "..." and he 
will let you pass.  Walk down the path to end this part.

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

The final bandit that guards the route will have the Gold Fortune Coin.  In 
order to get it you will have to take out many of the bandits in the area, 
especially the one next to him - whistle and lead him out to a banana peel.  
For the bandit guarding the route, grab a jug before you talk to him.  Keep it 
concealed behind your back as you answer him.  Answer him correctly and walk 
down the other path backwards while facing him.  After he tells you to "Wait!", 
he will get back to his post.  Sneak up behind him and strike him to get the 
Gold Coin.  He will not move from his post, so you cannot use a banana peel.

Coin Locations

- On the second floor hall of the tall building in the north of the map.
- Go down the walkway under the middle building and it will be to the right as 
  you exit the walkway.
- On your way around the corner after passing the final bandit, it will be at 
  the end of the walkway to the right.
- Strike the final bandit with a jug (gold).

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round IV -- Team Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 35,000 |
| Silver - 20,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break all the opposing team's stone statues before the time limit expires 
   and before they destroy your team's statues.

For this statue-breaking round, appeal to the crowd often and you might just 
get a Halberd.  If you do, and the opposing team is in your sight, run up to 
them and chop off their arms to slow down their team's progression a little.

Choose to start out with whichever weapon you want, and have the big guy follow 
you at the beginning.  Climb the ladder and start with the statue on the right. 
The little red gladiator from the opposing team may interrupt but concentrate 
on taking the statue down.  Defeat the little gladiator after destroying the 
statue.  After the little gladiator is beaten, run toward the statue in the 
middle up the ramp.  Try to break it quickly, then run back down the ramp and 
go the opposite way.  You will eventually run into the next statue.  While 
breaking this one, keep an eye on the ladder behind you - if see any enemy 
climbing it then knock him back down.  After taking out that statue climb down 
the ladder to the enemy team's side.  There is a Gladius in the back behind the 
archways below the platform.  Take out the statue quickly and don't worry as 
much about the enemies.

Gold Rank Strategy

This is a hard round to get a gold ranking in.  A little bit of luck is 
involved with this one.  Make sure to start without a weapon.  Appeal to the 
crowd at the beginning to boost your Salvos to about 1,600.  Grab a Gladius 
from one of the sides (below the archway or around the side of the ladder) and 
get up the ladder quickly.  Run straight ahead and the team should be running 
toward the middle statue.  Follow them and fight them.  Stay right on top of 
them and try to keep them from breaking that statue.  Use one of them as a 
shield if you to.  After you kill them, you should be able to appeal to the 
crowd for a Halberd.  Use the Halberd to chop off the next two enemies arms as 
they try to reach the middle statue.  Be sure to throw one of the arms to the 
audience.  Go over to the statue right next to the ladder that leads to their 
side and knock them back down as they try to climb up.  Knock them back down 
with an arm if one lands on the ground next to you.  Go ahead and start 
breaking the opposing teams statues as quickly as you can.  Try to use a 
Gladius and save the Halberd for the other team.  The audience should throw you 
another Halberd if you do well once your current one it exhausted.  When you go 
to break the final statue on the enemy's side, try to defeat as many enemies as 
you can when they rush out of the doorway to guard their statues.  Only one 
will enter the arena at a time, so you can easily defeat them.  Make sure to 
watch the time and look for the number of statues your team has left.  Start 
breaking the enemy statue once the clock reaches 40 seconds.

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round V -- Artus Dominus

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 70,000 |
| Silver - 45,000 |
| Bronze - 30,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Get at least 20,000 Salvo Points.

2) Kill more enemies than your rival in the time slot provided.

Simply put, this arena battle is incredibly fun!  In order to win you will have 
to achieve the required Salvo amount and get more kills than your rival in the 
process.  You and your rival cannot hit each other during this battle so focus 
only on the enemies (or your prey).  Start with the Scimitar and use charge 
attacks to start chopping arms off of enemies.  Deliberately steal kills from 
your rival if you see her beating up on another gladiator.  Make extra use of 
the traps spread around the area if you see an enemy underneath them.  Strike 
the gong on either of the four sides to send the masher down on top of some 
unlucky soul.  You can also use the traps to stop your opponent if you see her 
underneath one.  Be careful when running underneath each trap - it can mash you 
as well if an enemy hits it.  If you do well enough, and appeal to the audience 
they will throw you a Magnus which will greatly improve your success.  The 
moment you see that Magnus Sword, be sure to rush and get it before anyone 
else.  Use a charged X, X combo to amputate both limbs on an enemy instantly.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Basically do everything that I have listed above.  Start with the Scimitar, and 
go for the enemies' arms and heads.  The Magnus Sword and Scimitar will be your 
best friend for this battle.  Anytime you chop off a head, be sure to pick it 
up and appeal to the crowd with it.  Beat your enemies with an arm, throw their 
arms or heads into the audience, stomp on them while they yell in agony from 
severed body parts, suplex them, chop them in half...be a real animal, or a 
true Berserker!

NORTHERN ARENA -- Round VI -- Battle Royale

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 40,000 |
| Silver - 25,000 |
| Bronze - 15,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Kill all of your opponents.

For the first part of this battle do not use any of the catapults or items in 
the boxes.  Take out the other gladiators as you normally would and prepare for 
a boss fight.

===============================================================================

Boss - VALCROSS ARCANUS

Recommended Weapon: Spear

Exclusive Salvos

-- Rock On (#156) - Attack a stone pillar with a catapult.
-- For the Birds (#157) - Destroy 10 birds during the battle.
-- Sniper Shot (#158) - Hit Arcanus while she is on top of a pillar.  Target 
   and throw a weapon at her.  A rock from a catapult will not count.
-- Rock Smasher (#159) - Destroy a stone pillar during the fight.  Use the 
   catapults.
-- World Class Rock Smasher (#160) - Destroy all the stone pillars during the 
   fight.  Again, use the catapults.
-- Birdseye (#161) - This particular Salvo can be done in the Arcanus fight or 
   the Great Arena - Round II - Beast Hunt.  Throw a rock or a weapon at one of 
   the vultures to get it.
-- Tag Team Ultimas (#162) - Hit Arcanus while Claudia is hitting her.  It's 
   best to hit her on the ground after Claudia knocks her down.
-- Splitting Headache (#163) - Destroy Arcanus' helmet.  Do this before Claudia 
   does it.  Use a Maul overhead strike if the audience throws it to you.
-- Fried Chicken (#164) - Get ahold of one of Arcanus' bows and shoot a dead 
   vulture while it is on the ground in a pool of flammable liquid.  Kill a 
   vulture and then make it to where another vulture drops a barrel on the dead
   one, then shoot the dead vulture with a flame arrow.

Be sure to keep an eye on the vultures during this entire battle once the 
actual boss battle starts.  Sometimes they will carry barrels and rocks toward 
you and try to drop them on you.  The liquid inside the barrels is flammable so 
if Arcanus shoots you after you have been hit you will catch on fire.  The best 
time to take down the vultures is when they prepare to attack you and Claudia.  
A Gladius will work ok, but a Maul will really work wonders for taking out the 
vultures.  Claudia will help you out during this entire battle.  Don't worry 
about protecting her since she is immortal for the time being.

At the beginning of the battle, Arcanus will jump around the area and shoot 
arrows at you.  If you are quick enough you can get a few hits in before she 
starts with the pillar hopping.  Soon she will jump to the pillars and will 
fire arrows down upon you. Sometimes the arrows will cause the ground to burst 
into flames if the vultures have dropped some oil nearby.  While she is on top 
of the pillars fight off any vultures that are attacking you, and make your way 
to a catapult.  Put a rock on the catapult and target her for some major 
damage.  If you have problems while trying to hit her then just take out the 
pillars, and this will make the battle much easier. If you can manage to knock 
the bow out of her hands during the battle, you can grab it and use for 
yourself.  While she is on the ground you can basically hack and slash her as 
much as you like, but be sure to look out for the vultures and her arrows.  If 
she gets dizzy or kneels over you can suplex her. Add a little insult to injury 
for the final hit by throwing a Spear or Gladius at her to impale her.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Unlike the last boss battle you will need to get many of your Salvos points 
from the actual Salvos list exclusive to this boss battle.  Start out with 
either no weapon or the Spear.  Try to get as many Salvos moves as you can on 
your first three opponents since you want be able to get some of them later.  
The best thing to do is get ahold of the Maul that one gladiator has and break 
some arms and heads.  When the actual boss fight begins you will need to start 
performing many of the exclusive boss Salvos moves.  Don't be in a hurry to 
destroy the pillars since you will run the risk of Claudia breaking Arcanus' 
helmet before you.  Use the catapult to destroy only a few pillars, and to hit 
her at least one time.  Use the Maul's overhead smash when the audience throws 
it to you for your best chance at breaking her helmet.  Destroy as many 
vultures as you can and throw a weapon at Arcanus while she is on a pillar to 
boost your Salvos.  Be sure to stomp on her if Claudia knocks her to the ground 
for the Tag Team Ultimas Salvo.  Throw a rose to the crowd or at Arcanus 
(appeal to the audience with it first) and throw a weapon into the crowd for 
some more Salvos.  End the battle by doing at least one suplex to her and throw 
something at her for the last hit if you haven't done it already with one of 
the first three gladiators.

- Behind the right pot in front of the building.

-- ANTONIUS' ESTATE --

> In Front of Antonius' Estate

Save your game near the merchant and grab an apple - time to create some 
trouble!  Walk around the corner.  Throw an apple at the guard near the gates 
and he will chase after the citizen with the apple in his hand behind you.  Do 
not get in the way of the guard's strike or he will kill you.

Coin Locations

- To the left of the fountain.
- Walk down the far east end and climb over the boxes to find this one.

> Antonius' Entrance

Go to the west side and enter the door.

Coin Locations

- Right beside the furthest tree against the wall on the east.
- As you enter, take the left path and it will be behind the tree on your left 
  as you exit the archway.
- To the right of the bed of pink flowers.
- Around the far west side of the small building.
- Inside the building, in front of the folding screen.

> Guard's Break Room

Climb on top of the wall to your left.  Climb on top of the beam to the side - 
crouch and go underneath the boards.  Rise up in the open space and climb the 
boards above.  Lean against the wall to left and move to the other side of the 
room.  Drop through the hole and drop once again to make it to the door.  Once 
outside, climb the ladder then get on top of the crates to the left.  The 
crates will help you get inside the building above and to the next door.

Coin Locations

- On top of the climbable wall.
- After leaning against the wall the first time, it will be across from the 
  area where you drop through.
- Lean against another wall after the first and make your way over to it.
- After you drop from up above the room, look to the east side of the room. 
  Strangely, the guard will not see you if you walk over to it.
- When you're on the crates, drop off to the other side to see it.
- Once you climb into the building via the crates, walk down the left hall.

> Guard's Anteroom

Walk down the stairs and save your game in the east room.  There are some darts 
on the table, though they do not help out too well.  For this area, you will 
need to look at your map (press select).  Pay attention to the pacing of the 
second guard.  When the second guard is about to walk away from you (judging by 
the map), whistle near the top portion of the stairs to draw the first guard's 
attention.  Quickly run back to the save room and let the guard pass by you 
outside.  You might be able to get both of them to come into the room if you 
whistle close enough.  Walk fast around the corner and into the hall when he 
(or they) passes (or pass) by.  Climb on top of the wall to the side when you 
enter the hall if the guard is still patrolling it.  Try to stay behind a 
pillar while above the patrolling guard or fall down to the pillar and lean 
against it as he goes by.  Do not expose yourself in any way to his face or he 
will see you even up high.  If he sees you, try to stand behind a pillar to 
shield yourself from his vision and to let the alert gauge drop.  Enter the 
door on the right near the middle of the hall.

Coin Locations

- In the room with the save point, it is in the back, behind a crate.
- When you climb on top of the stone wall in the hall, it will be near the 
  doorway where the first guard was patrolling.
- On the stone wall past the room that you need to go into in the hall.  It 
  really doesn't matter whether you get this when you reenter with the toga or 
  not, because the guard will still see you either way - he will not come after
  you though.

> Bath

Walk behind the first maid and follow her around the bath.  When she goes 
around the corner, hide behind the crate and wait for the second made to walk 
by the doorway in the back.  When she turns around, walk through the doorway, 
pick up the jug and strike the Senator.  Grab his toga and leave the room.

Coin Locations

- Next to the crate.
- In the room with the Senator, by the two pots.
- Knock out the guard on the east side of the room (gold).

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

To get this one, you will have to leave the room after you get the Senator's 
toga.  Reenter the room and grab the jug from the room with the Senator.  Sneak 
the jug by the maids and walk up to the guard's side, strike him, and quickly 
take the gold coin from him.  If they see you before you strike him, run out of 
the room quickly, then go back inside.

> Guard's Anteroom

Tell the guard that you were just heading for the bath, if he asks.  Go through 
the door in the back and walk up to the guard in front of the door.  He will 
step aside and let you enter.

> Antonius' Garden

Walk to the double doors on the left side and open them.

Coin Locations

While outside Decius' Room, throw a frog at the maid, and then let her run off. 
Walk by the guards and you will find six coins total in Decius' Room. One on 
the small table, three on the desk, and two at the foot of his bed.

> Antonius' Estate 2F

Walk up the stairs.

-- TRAINING FACILITY --

> Sextus' Area 1F

Speak with Sextus to start the next set of rounds.  The "Advanced" rounds are 
now available in the Underground Arena.

CIRCUS MAXIMUS -- Round I -- 1st Race

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 11,000 |
| Silver -  8,000 |
| Bronze -  5,000 |
o-----------------o

Exclusive Race Salvos:

-- Fender Bender (#181) - Force an opponent's chariot into a wall during a 
   race.  Use L1 or R1.
-- Drive-thru (#182) - Pick up a weapon from a slave on the track during a 
   chariot race.
-- Street Sweeper (#183) - Pick up a weapon from the ground during a chariot 
   race. Basically, pick up a weapon from a dead slave.
-- Moving Violation (#184) - Hit an opponent with a weapon during a chariot 
   race.
-- Dead on Arrival (#185) - Kill an enemy with a weapon during a chariot race.
-- Collateral Damage (#186) - Run over and kill a slave on the track during a 
   chariot race.
-- Totaled (#187) - Destroy an enemy's chariot by smashing him into walls 
   during a chariot race.  Use R1 or L1.
-- Speed Zone (#188) - Complete a lap within a predetermined time limit.
-- Leader of the Pack (#189) - Pass the VIP seating section while in the lead 
   during a chariot race.  The VIP section is at the finish line.
-- Room To Breathe (#190) - Open up a large amount of space between yourself 
   and the nearest competitor when in the lead of a chariot race.
-- Pole Position (#191) - Go from last place to first in a chariot race.
-- Genocide (#192) - Completely destroy each and every opponent during a 
   chariot race.

This first race is basically a practice race to get you familiar with the 
controls for the later races.  To win, you must either kill your opponents or 
win first place in the race.  Snap at the horse with your whip using the X 
button to make him go faster.  The horse's stamina gauge, shown in the top left 
corner will drain as you press the X button, but it will keep recharging 
throughout the whole race.  Do not make a sharp turn when you reach the turns 
or it will slow you down heavily - stay near the wall and gradually turn.  
Battles are unavoidable since most of the time, whenever an opponent is beside 
you, he will take a swipe at you.  Pick up weapons that the slaves on the track 
carry and this will greatly improve your chances in a battle.  To pick up a 
weapon drive by the slave on the right or left and he will hand to you.  It's 
risky to stay with the axe all the time, because you will need to get close in 
order to use it and that will cause you to damage the wheels on your chariot 
when doing so.  If your chariot sustains too much damage on either wheel you 
will automatically loose.

Gold Ranking Strategy

For these races, in order to gain a gold rank, you will need to perform as many 
different Salvos as you can.  All the Salvos obtainable in a race are listed 
above.  Pick off your opponents one by one to start things off.  Ram at least 
one opponent into the wall during the race.  Be sure to leave at least one of 
them alive.  Try to keep ahead of the last opponent to boost your Salvos.  
Also, be sure to pick up a weapon from a slave and hit one on purpose (pick up 
a weapon from his dead body the next lap if you can).  Once you have gotten 
near the required amount, defeat the last opponent and that should boost your 
Salvos enough for a Gold Rank.

CIRCUS MAXIMUS -- Round II -- 2nd Race

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 13,000 |
| Silver - 10,000 |
| Bronze -  7,000 |
o-----------------o

The main difference between the first race and this one is that the course has 
two narrow parts.  Be sure to look for them when engaging in a battle.  The 
number of laps has increased to four for this race.

Go down the corridor to the right and walk to the back entrance of the room.  
Stay by the wall for the moment and allow the maid to enter the room and then 
leave.  Walk over to the maid's dress near the area where she was and put it 
on.  Grab a wine flask from the table and leave the room.  The guards or maids 
will not notice whether you carry a wine flask or not.  Walk down the long hall 
that the maid walks in and out of (you can run down the side corridor).  Pass 
by the guards and they will tell you that you do not look like the usual maid 
that comes there so you cannot enter.  Walk further down the hall and enter the 
room at the end.  Don't mess with the guard.  On the right side of the room 
grab the bandanna from the floor and put it on.  Now your disguise is complete! 
Go back to the door with the two guards and they will now let you enter.

Coin Locations

- In the back of the draperies that shelter the two wine flask.
- To the left of the bandanna.
- Knock out the guard (left guard) that lets you in the room with Antonius 
  (gold).

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

The guard (left guard) that you talk to in order to gain access to the room 
with Maecenas is the one that has the Gold Coin.  It's a good idea to take out 
the guard in the room with the maid bandanna before attempting this.  Stand in 
the hall outside the room with the maid bandanna and whistle to get the 
attention of the guards - only one will come.  He will stop and stare at you 
when he walks around the corner.  Walk toward the lone guard still at his post 
to get out of the suspicious guard's view, then go back around the corner and 
strike him once he turns around.  The guard that has the coin can be struck 
with a wine flask at any time from the side, after he has allowed you access.

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin (alternate)

Walk directly up to the left guard as he lets you in without striking any other 
guard whatsoever - strike him on the left side (his right), IMMEDIATELY take 
the coin, dodge the slash of the other guard, and go into the room.  This is 
very risky, but it works!

-- FOLLOW MAECENAS --

> Antonius Estate 2F

Objective: Keep Maecenas in your site and do not loose him.

During this segment you will have to tail Maecenas throughout the various rooms 
and hallways that he enters.  The tail gauge on the top right-hand side of the 
screen will tell you if you are about to lose him or not.  If the gauge 
completely runs down then the mission is a failure.  You must have Maecenas in 
Octavianus' field of vision to recharge it.  If Maecenas sees you then the 
mission will be a failure as well.  If a normal Senator or guard sees you, you 
can still redeem yourself by hiding.  There is a checkpoint after every 
cutscene thankfully, so things never do get totally out of hand while following 
him.

To start things off, follow Maecenas until you get to the hall with all the 
doors.  DO NOT go into the hall just yet.  Wait for the first Senator that 
appears to go into the room on the right (stay by the wall as he comes down the 
hall) and wait for the second Senator to come through the door in the back and 
then circle back to the same door.  You are free to go after that, but run!  
The first Senator will exit through the back door in a few moments.  Duck in a 
room if you think the Senator is about to see you (the second room would be the 
best).  The first Senator will leave from the first room and travel down the 
hall to the third room, so stepping into the second room will allow you to 
bypass him.  Either way, walk toward the end of the hall.

Coin Locations

- Inside the room through the door of where you start.  Look in front of the 
  desk.
- In the second room on the right in the long hall with the doors.  Walk 
  straight ahead from the entrance.

CUTSCENE

After the cutscene, go into the third room right beside you so the maid will 
not see you.  Look at the map (Select), and when she goes by, exit the room and 
walk down the corridor to keep up with Maecenas.  As you reach the next door 
another cutscene will play.

CUTSCENE

Wait for the Senator to the left to go down the hall in front of you, then 
follow Maecenas down the hall.  As you reach the corner, you will have to step 
against the wall to the left to avoid the next Senators line of vision as he 
walks down the hall.  After he has his back to you, enter the room where 
Maecenas is.

CUTSCENE

Before following Maecenas out of the room, grab the toga from behind the 
Senator on the right side of the room.  Walk out of the room.  The guard will 
question your business there as he walks around the corner.  Go into the room 
Maecenas enters to end this part.

Coin Locations

- Inside the room to the right after the second checkpoint cutscene.  Walk 
  straight ahead after entering.
- Inside the room that the guard is directly across from.  Wait until after the 
  third cutscene when you have the toga before attempting this.

CIRCUS MAXIMUS -- Round III -- 3rd Race

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 15,000 |
| Silver - 12,000 |
| Bronze -  9,000 |
o-----------------o

The whole course is basically narrow on this race so you will need to watch the 
tracks even closer when engaging in a battle.  This race is five laps.  With 
the increase in the number of opponents you are racing against it is vital that 
you get a better weapon from a slave.  Try not to fight too much with your 
opponents until you pick up a weapon with a longer reach or you will run the 
risk of destroying your chariot quickly.

Gold Ranking Strategy

See Round I.

CIRCUS MAXIMUS -- Round IV -- Last Race

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 15,000 |
| Silver - 11,000 |
| Bronze -  7,000 |
o-----------------o

===============================================================================

Boss - VALCROSS NARCLASTESE

Recommended Weapon - Trident or Whip

The requirement for this race is that you defeat Narclastese by attacking him, 
not that you beat him in the race.  Do not attack him much until you get a 
better weapon.  He has small blades on his chariot's wheels that will make 
mincemeat out of your wheels.  Pick up a Whip or Trident from a slave, and then 
go after him.  The Trident seems to work the best for hitting him since it is 
faster than his whip.  Be sure to keep your distance, but try to stay right 
across from him.  If you let him get ahead of you, he will throw firebombs on 
the ground. The firebombs can make this race incredibly frustrating at times 
since they will slow you down greatly.  Move to the sides to dodge them and 
keep up with him.  If you run off and leave him during the battle, purposely 
slow down by not whipping the horse or actually stop the horse altogether.

Gold Ranking Strategy

This is hard and will take quite a few tries.  Risk it and hit him with your 
axe a couple of times to wear his life down quickly.  After hitting him about 
three times with any weapon, be sure to ram him off to the side since you are 
already right next to him.  You will have to get Leader of the Pack at least 
two or three times, and will need to perform plenty of other Salvo Moves as 
well.  Grab a weapon from a slave, run over the next one, pick up a weapon from 
a dead slave, ram Narclastese's chariot into a wall, get a good distance 
between him when you're in the lead a few times - you will have to do all of 
this while wearing him down.  One Fender Bender Salvo will almost always give 
you a Room To Breathe Salvo as long as you do not crash along with him.  If he 
is next to the left wall as you make a turn, ram him and you will almost always 
get a Fender Bender.  If you wear him down quickly, do not defeat him until you 
reach near the gold ranking since Genocide will not raise your points by much.  
You will need about 11,000 Salvos before defeating him to achieve a Gold Rank.

-- PANSA'S HOUSE --

Objective: Find Cicero

Head to the Forum.

Coin Locations

- While facing Pansa, look on the other side of the wall on the pedestal next 
  to the bed.
- Outside Octavianus' Room, next to the stacked crates.
- Next to the merchant counter, to the left of the entrance to the Storage 
  Area.

> Storage Area

Coin Locations

- Behind the bricks like before.
- Next to the entrance.  You will have to fight the camera a bit.

-- THE FORUM --

Talk to the Roman soldier off to the right.  Tell him, "I'd better talk to 
Pansa about this." and "Perhaps I should ask his pupil."  He will give you a 
gold coin and tell you to mention the name "Marius" to the guard at the back 
door of the Senate.  Head for the Senate House.

Coin Locations

- As you enter it will be in the back, to the right of the woman.
- To the soldier's left.
- Talk to the soldier and answer him correctly (gold).

-- SENATE HOUSE --

> In Front of Senate

Talk to the guard at the door to the left and mention the soldier's name from 
earlier.  He will give you the SENATE OFFICE KEY and allow you to go inside.

> Front Garden

Walk straight ahead when the guard turns to pace to the right side.  Off to the 
left you will find an opening in the hedge that will let you crawl through 
about half of it without being seen.  When you reach the end, be sure to view 
your map to make sure no guard is staring your way, and exit.  Walk north a 
little and you will see another opening in the hedge by a crate that will let 
you pass through the other half undetected.  Stay low and sneak along the side 
of the hedge until you have to go out into the open.  Make sure that the pacing 
guard has his back to you and the guard at the door is pacing to one of the 
sides before you venture out.  Keep the guard up ahead in your line of view and 
sneak behind the crates to the left side.  Don't crouch or walk all the time; 
if the coast is clear, run!  Pick up a stone.  Don't throw the stone at the 
guard - yes, it is hilarious, but soon you will run out.  Get behind a crate 
and throw it off to the right somewhere in front of the guard.  When the guard 
walks over to check on it.  Walk to the door and unlock it with the key you got 
earlier.

Coin Locations

- As you enter, it will be to the east, next to the guard's patrolling path.
- After you exit from the second hedge crawlspace turn left at the second 
  intersection.
- On the side of the building next to the stairs.

> Inner Garden

There are a bunch of ways to do this part.  Be sure to constantly stand behind 
something and know where the guards are, especially when you reach the guarded 
door.  One of the best ways to do this is to hop over the fence and grab the 
stone to the right.  Wait till the guard closest to you walks away and sneak 
along the side of the hedge and go straight ahead to the north.  Don't go 
around the other side just yet.  Check to make sure that the guard on the other 
side is pacing away from you and make a break for the stone maze in the far 
north.  The exit to the maze is on the east.  As you venture out, make sure 
that the guard has his back to you and is traveling west, and that the middle 
patrolling guard is walking to the south.  Hide behind the bushes in the 
northeast and grab a stone if you haven't yet.  When the two guards have their 
back to you once again in the same manner described above, move over to the 
pillars and creep toward the guard near the door.  You will have to stay behind 
the pillars just enough so when the middle guard paces, he will not see you.  
Reach the pillar that is closest to the door that the guard is posted at and 
quickly throw a stone near him to distract him.  When you throw it, either 
throw it far off so that both the middle guard and the door guard walk toward 
it or throw it extremely close to the guard near the door.  You can stand to 
the side of pillar directly to the side of the guard and he will not see you 
while throwing the stone.  Move toward the door and open it as the guard walks 
over to check out the noise.

Either way you do this area, you will still have to hide behind a pillar and 
throw a rock to get the guard's attention.

Coin Locations

- On the stone bench in the south (look at the map).
- In the middle pond area in the southwest of that area, behind a tree.
- On the far east side of the stone maze in the north.  You will have to lean 
  against a wall and squeeze through to get to the room.

-- TRAINING FACILITY --

> Gladiators' Dorm

Talk to Sextus in his area to move onward to the next set of rounds.  The 
"Expert" rounds are now playable in the Underground Arena.

DESERT ARENA -- Round I -- Battle Royale

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 50,000 |
| Silver - 30,000 |
| Bronze - 20,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Kill all of your opponents.

2) Get at least 15,000 Salvos.

In this round, firetraps are in each sand trap in the arena.  Press the switch 
at the top of each sand trap to activate the firetrap.  This one can be a 
little hard to get started out in because of the heavily armored enemies.  It's 
best to work a bunch of them into the sand traps and then barbecue them 
altogether.  Lure enemies down into the sand traps and then quickly run up the 
side and press the switch.  If you see some enemies fighting in the sand traps 
then press the switch as well.  Be on the lookout for enemies that will do the 
same to you however.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start out without a weapon, then appeal to the crowd immediately.  They should 
throw you a weapon.  Start out by burning many of the enemies with the 
firetraps, then switch to killing them in another variety of ways.  Try to get 
ahold of a big weapon and this one shouldn't be much of a problem.  Try luring 
a weak enemy down into the middle of a firetrap; hold the R1 button with a 
weapon equipped, and if he is weak enough, he will beg for mercy - at that 
instant, run up to the switch and press it for a most brutal Salvo move.  You 
might get Urine Trouble along with Purgatory Cometh Salvos by doing such.  
Throw weapons and severed arms (after you beat an enemy with it) into the crowd 
as usual to boost your Salvos.

DESERT ARENA -- Round II -- Beast Hunt

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 20,000 |
| Silver - 10,000 |
| Bronze -  5,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Finish off all the beasts within the required time limit (five minutes).

Three tigers and one gladiator with a Spear will be your opponents for this 
round.  Start out with whichever weapon of your choosing - they all have their 
advantages.  The main key for beating this battle is to not let the tigers gang 
up on you.  They can gang up incredibly easy and take off quite a bit if they 
catch you with a bite.  If you need to eat some food, be sure to run behind a 
wooden board and eat quickly.  You will have to use Spears most of the battle 
since the audience will keep throwing them in.  Go after the tigers first and 
then deal with the gladiator.  Stop to throw rocks often to take some good 
damage from a tiger.  Target and throw the rock through a wooden board if you 
have to.  If the audience throws a Maul, then grab it quickly before the 
gladiator gets it.

Gold Rank Strategy

Start the battle with whichever weapon you're comfortable with - I wouldn't 
recommend starting with no weapon.  Go to the left and pick up the first rock 
behind the first board and toss it at a tiger.  Try to make the final hit on a 
tiger either a rock toss or a charged Spear thrust for some extra Salvos 
points.  Toss weapons and roses into the audience.  If the audience throws a 
Maul, use it to break the gladiator's arms and finish him off with it.

DESERT ARENA -- Round III -- Team Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 30,000 |
| Silver - 15,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break all the opposing team's stone statues before the time limit expires 
   and before they destroy your team's statues.

Compared to the last Team Battle, this one isn't really too bad.  The only hard 
aspect is figuring out which switches go with which statues.  The switch on the 
middle platform will lower the gate for the southwest statue.  The switch on 
the left platform will lower the gate on the furthest statue to the left on the 
tall platform in the back.  The left switch at the top of the tall platform 
will lower the gate to the statue right across from it.  Talk to the small 
gladiator on your team and start with the middle switch, which will lower the 
gate to the statue in the southwest.  Your opponents will start on the same 
statue so you may have to fight them off a bit.  Hit them as they climb the 
ladder when you first start out and climb up the ladder yourself.  You may have 
to help your ally a bit against the enemies that are on the middle platform.  
If an enemy follows you to the statue, position yourself so that he hits the 
statue while trying to hit you.  After that statue is broken, move to the left 
platform switch.  This will lower the gate to the left statue on top of the 
tall platform.  Make you way up the tall platform and quickly destroy the 
statue.  If you wait for a little bit after it is destroyed, your ally should 
automatically climb up the ladder to the tall platform without you having to go 
fetch him.  He will lower the statue next to the ladder for you.

Gold Rank Strategy

Start without a weapon.  Immediately grab the rock off to the left and aim for 
the opposing team.  Right as the first guy starts to climb the ladder throw the 
rock at him and this should give you about five Salvo moves in a row.  Destroy 
the first two statues the way that I described above while stopping for an 
occasional kill.  When you make it to the top of the tall platform, knock down 
any enemies that try to climb the ladder.  Kill off as many gladiators as you 
can on the opposing team while on the tall platform before you destroy the last 
statue.  Only go after the statue when you have about forty minutes left on the 
clock.

-- SENATE HOUSE --

> Senate Offices

Wait for the guards up ahead to walk into the sitting room as they continue 
they're conversation then walk down the hall ahead.  Before you get to the 
doorway hop through the window on the right.  Grab the pen if you want.  Wait 
by the doorway.  One guard has his back turned to you and the other will pace 
back and forth between the benches.  Wait for the pacing guard to walk up to 
the doorway and then turn around and pace back - when he does this walk behind 
him until you reach the second bench.  Walk behind the second bench and crouch. 
When he turns around and walks back the other way, sneak out from the back of 
the bench and go to the room up ahead.  The room to the right has a maid 
circling it.  There is a maid's dress and plenty of wine flasks inside.  Wait 
for the maid to turn her back to the doorway and immediately walk in and stay 
right behind her until you can walk to the room in the back.

Put on the maid's dress and grab a wine flask.  Go back to the sitting room and 
walk down the hall behind the guards to get the INNER OFFICE KEY off the desk 
inside.  DO NOT hop through the window or the guard outside will notice you.  
Head back the way you came and unlock the door to the room next to the 
northeast room with the key.  Go inside and strike the guard with the wine 
flask when he turns his back.  Lean against the wall and squeeze behind the 
left bookshelf.  Climb up the crates and lean against the wall next to the 
crates once you make it to the top.  Stay against the wall (you will need to 
duck eventually) until you get the other side above the unconscious guard.  
Crouch and move through the opening then drop to the other side.  Walk toward 
the room in the northeast.

Coin Locations

- On a pedestal in the room with the Inner Office Key.
- Lying on the desk of the center room with the window.
- After leaning against the wall to get to the northeast room it will be in the 
  crawlspace.
- Knock out the guard that is sitting down in the sitting room (gold).

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

Be sure to save the Olive Oil Jug for the two guards in the sitting room.  
Knock out the maid and the two guards in the hall.  You will need to hide the 
body of the guard by the doorway quickly since the two from the sitting room 
will come to check out the noise.  Hide his body in the room to the side.  Grab 
the Olive Oil Jug and head for the sitting room.  Get behind the standing guard 
and strike him from the back.  Walk through the oil as the guard comes toward 
you and he will slip in the olive oil.  Grab the coin from his body.

DESERT ARENA -- Round IV -- Artus Dominus

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 80,000 |
| Silver - 50,000 |
| Bronze - 30,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Get at least 20,000 Salvo Points.

2) Kill more enemies than your rival in the time slot provided.

Just like the other Artus Dominus round before, you will need to kill as many 
enemies as you can and beat your rival in the number of kills.  The key to 
winning this battle lies in the Magnus Sword.  Choose the Maul to start things 
off.  Run to the back right as you start and kill the gladiator that pleas for 
his life.  If he goes under the masher, then set it off on him.  There is 
another pleading gladiator on the left side.  Run in and out from under the 
mashers to lure enemies under them and set it off for some easy instant kills. 
Pick up a dagger when you have a one-handed weapon and look for straggling 
enemies to get some more instant kills.  You will have to steal kills away from 
your opponent as he weakens enemies or he will claim quite a bit of kills for 
himself.  When it asks you to appeal to the audience on the screen, that appeal 
will give you a Magnus Sword.  Immediately run to get the Magnus Sword when the 
crowd throws it so your rival cannot get it.  Use charged attacks to swipe a 
whole area and claim all the enemies' lives for yourself.  There is a catapult 
up the ladder in the back of the area, but it doesn't help out at all.

Gold Ranking Strategy

You will have to be a total animal to get a gold on this one!  Start without 
any weapons and try to lure the back gladiator into a masher or kill him with 
your bare hands.  Look for any kills you can get in any way possible.  Appeal 
to the crowd with heads and roses and throw each of them to the crowd.  The key 
to getting enough Salvos is to variety kill and kill fast!  The Magnus Sword is 
a must for a high Salvo score.  Use daggers for quick kills once the big 
weapons become scarce.  Do not let up on kills for a second even if you have to 
do the same kill a bunch.

DESERT ARENA -- Round V -- Elimination

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 75,000 |
| Silver - 45,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat all your opponents.

The only hard aspects of this battle is the fact that there is very little food 
given to you and the archers on the side can be a pain while dealing with other 
enemies.  Try to get a big weapon and take out the archers quickly.  There is 
also a woman gladiator with a sling full of oil shots in the back right 
portion.  Make extra use of the three firetraps around the area and lure 
enemies into them - this is especially useful for the big enemies.  Use the 
biggest weapons that you can find and break or cut off the enemies' arms.  
There are two enemies on the wooden platforms in the center of the area, but 
they will not come down until you go up the ladders.  Take them out last so 
you're not swamped.  They will always try to go for a bigger weapon if one is 
available on the ground.  Take advantage of this and knock them down the 
ladders when they try to climb back up.

Gold Ranking Strategy

The usual.  Start out without a weapon, kill in a variety of ways, and do many 
Salvo moves.  Make use of the firetraps to get tons of Salvos points.  Try to 
make an enemy beg for mercy before pulling the trap on the last set of enemies. 
You have unlimited time, so try to drag every Salvo out that you can think of. 
Throw all the leftover weapons to the audience.

DESERT ARENA -- Round VI -- Boss Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 40,000 |
| Silver - 25,000 |
| Bronze - 15,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat Valcross Askari

===============================================================================

Boss 5 - VALCROSS ASKARI

Recommended Weapon: Halberd (might want to choose Gladius and Meat from the 
starting though)

Exclusive Salvos:

-- Achilles Heel (#165) - Destroy one of the elephant's leg armors.
-- Four on the Floor (#166) - Destroy all four of the elephant's leg armors.
-- Cruelty to Elephants (#167) - Hit the elephant with a Fists of Fury combo 
   (Square, Square, X, Square, X) to gain this one (this salvo can be earned in
   one other battle later in the game).
-- Don't Kick the Elephants (#168) - Kick the elephant (this salvo can also be 
   done on another battle).
-- Small Splitting Headache (#169) - Break Askari's helmet.  Use the Mace and 
   do the supra charge attack (Forward + Square) while he is dizzy from his 
   spin attack.

At the beginning of the battle the elephant will dash toward you and try to ram 
you.  If you choose to start out with the Halberd you must put down the Halberd 
immediately and move out of the way, otherwise you will be too slow to avoid 
the attack.  Do not stand in front of the elephant for any reason during this 
battle!  The ram attack will take off close to half your life so you cannot 
afford to get hit with it much.  During this part of the battle Askari will be 
constantly throwing firebombs at you from above.  He will always yell out 
"Die!" or something else before he throws each one so be sure to move out of 
the way if you hear him.  In order to severely damage the elephant you will 
have to destroy its leg armors. Focus on the back legs first.  Once the leg 
armors are gone from the back, grab a highly damaging weapon (Halberd) and use 
a charged attack to knock the elephant down.  When it falls, keep using charged 
attacks or combos (Tornado Maximus) to severely damage it.  While you attack 
the elephant from behind it will slap you with its tail and fart on you if you 
are directly behind it so stay to its side.  If the elephant ever raises up on 
its back legs BE SURE to get back or it will come down on you like a ton of 
bricks and take quite a bit of health.  If you get caught directly underneath 
the elephant during this move it will take the entire bar.

When the elephant is defeated, Askari will continue the battle on foot.  He 
only has two attacks but one is incredibly quick and basically comes out of 
nowhere.  His dash attack has very little warning so be sure to stay moving the 
whole time.  It can only be guarded against while using a shield.  If he starts 
to do a combination attack he will most likely end it with a spinning attack.  
Charge whatever weapon you have as he starts the spinning attack to get a 
strong hit on him for some big damage.  A real easy way to break his helmet is 
to hit him with a charged Mace attack (Forward + Square) after his spin attack. 
Stay on the move during the battle and only attack shortly after his spin 
attack or right after his dash attack and you won't have any problems.  There 
is some meat behind one group of boards on the side and a Mace behind the 
other.

Gold Ranking Strategy

In order to pull off a gold rank on this boss battle, you will have to do any 
Salvo move you can think of and appeal to the crowd often.  All the exclusive 
boss battle Salvo moves will be required for that gold rank.  Try to have a 
little over 30,000 Salvos points before killing the elephant.  Choose to start 
the battle without a weapon and appeal to the crowd after you have dodged the 
elephant's ram.  Start breaking the leg armors immediately.  Be extra careful 
about breaking the front leg armors as he might hit you with his snout or ram 
you.  Try to combo as many Salvo moves as possible to gain more points.  Get at 
least one Tornado Maximus with the Halberd on the elephant.  Make sure the 
final hit on both the elephant and Askari are either a supra attack or a thrown 
weapon attack for some extra Salvo points.  A thrown weapon finish to the 
elephant will give you Fetch This and Bullseye Salvo moves.  Break Askari's 
helmet with charged Mace supra attacks, throw weapons to the audience, knock 
Askari into a wall, knock him up in the air with a charged Halberd strike, do a 
Sting Combo...among others to boost those Salvo points.

Grab an apple from the merchant.  Walk down the street to see a horse strapped 
to a carriage.  According to the guy to the side, this horse is a real coward.  
Hmmm, test the horse and see by throwing an apple at him.  The horse will 
trample over the guards.  Take one of the guards' armor and open the doors.

> Wine Cellar

Lean against the wall and make your way across the wall.  Squeeze through the 
crack and hop down to the next room.  Grab an object off to the side and go to 
the next area.  Stand behind the corner and wait until the guard turns around 
to pace down the hall.  Strike him and drag him away immediately.  It may be 
best to stand in the room, whistle to get his attention, then hide in a vase 
and strike him as he leaves the room.  For the second guard, stand in the 
middle of the hall and whistle then run back to the first crate and duck behind 
it.  He will walk down the hall and most likely destroy a few crates, but will 
not come near the third one.  Walk behind him and strike him as he leaves.  
Grab his helmet and coin.

Coin Locations

- Behind the third set of wine bottles next to the guard and the maid.
- On the circular platform against the wall (can't miss this one).
- Behind the second crate next to the pacing guard.
- Knock out the second guard (gold).

> Galley

This room can be a bit tricky the first time and there are several ways you can 
do this part.  You will have to use the flour and a honey pot for the best 
results.  Grab the flour from the side and QUICKLY hide it behind your back.  
The guards will notice, then get back to talking if you hide it quick enough.  
Grab a honey pot from the side as well.  Hold them both behind your back and 
walk into the next room and get behind the first guard.  Strike him and walk 
away, but stand in the path of the honey on the floor. The other guard will 
slip in the honey and the other two that run into the room should as well.  
Sometimes a guard gets stuck behind the other unconscious guards' bodies - if 
this happens grab a jug, then throw flour at him and strike him.  For the final 
guard that guards the door, grab a jug and throw flour at him then strike him.  
It doesn't matter if he sees you.  You don't have to worry about the maid at 
all.  Open the door when finished.

Coin Locations

- Next to the apples.
- In the room with the maid.
- Next to the seats where the guards are sitting in the third room.
- Knock out the guard guarding the door (gold).

> Antonius' Garden

Grab the rope off to the side and get a rat also.  As the first guard paces by 
the door that leads to the hall that you're in, open it and strangle him with 
the rope.  Walk near the middle of the fountain on the right side and stand 
directly facing the maid and the guard.  Lay down the rat (right on the D-pad) 
and it will move toward the guard and the maid.  Move toward both of them with 
your items hid behind your back as the rat moves across the floor, but stay 
behind the guard.  The maid will get scared and will run into the garden. 
Strangle the guard from behind as she runs off or he will follow.  Grab the 
BASEMENT KEY from his body and run back to the hall.  Go through the big door 
across from you.

Coin Locations

- On the desk in Decius' Room.

Getting the Gold Fortune Coin

Do the same as above, but after strangling the second guard take the olive oil 
pot and walk outside.  Don't forget to take the Basement Key and make sure you 
keep the rope with you.  Sneak up behind the guard patrolling the garden and 
strike him with the olive oil pot.  Walk up to the guard next to Decius' Room, 
who should be talking with the maid, and sneak by them into his room (make sure 
to keep the items behind your back when sneaking around them).  Wait inside of 
Decius' Room for the guards to come back after helping the maid.  Strangle the 
first with the rope and hit the second one with the wine flask inside of the 
Decius' Room.  The second guard will have your coin.

> Antonius' Entrance

Walk to the east side and go downstairs this time.  Unlock the door at the 
bottom.

> Basement

Enter the door on the right.

After the cutscene DO NOT go down the path it points you to.  Turn around and 
lean against the wall on the left to go by the three blockades.  Grab the torch 
at the bottom of the steps.  Go back and destroy the three blockades to clear 
your escape route for later.  Light the large torches as you walk further into 
the room.  Walk to the back, near the single tiger.  Light the torches along 
the way.  Swipe your torch to get the tiger to back off and head toward the 
cage in the back.  Open the door and strike the blockade inside to get the 
VAULT KEY.  Walk back out of the room the same way you came in.  Swipe at the 
tigers and they will keep their distance.  Whatever you do during this part, DO 
NOT RUN or they will surely jump at you as you try to escape.  Leave the room 
and unlock the vault door outside.  Walk inside and pick up the note to end 
this part.

Coin Locations

There are a total of nine Silver Coins in the room with the tigers.  There is 
one underneath every group of blockades or lone blockade.  It is very risky to 
get some of these.  Be sure to keep your eyes on the tigers at all times and 
keep them back with your torch.

GREAT ARENA -- Round I -- Rescue Mission

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 50,000 |
| Silver - 30,000 |
| Bronze - 20,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Rescue all three hostages from their cages.

2) Escort each hostage back to the gates safely.

Start with the War Chain so you can kill the first few enemies quickly.  Run to 
the right when you first start and defeat the first two gladiators on your way 
to the ladder.  Hit the first one with the torch, then hit him with War Chain's 
supra attack.  The archer on the back platform may shoot at you when you get 
near the ladder to fight the second gladiator.  The gladiator with the spike 
shield will have the first key.  Defeat him and unlock the cage at the top.  
You can stand to the right of the cage and actually get the archer to break the 
cage for you.  Stand next to the pole on the side and have the archer hit it 
with an arrow to make a bridge across the platform.  If you hit it yourself, 
then it will fall down between the platforms and not on them.  Get the hostage 
to follow you down the ladder and take her back to the beginning.

Don't try to rescue anymore hostages at the moment!  The next gladiator you 
beat will start a chain reaction of gladiators entering the arena through the 
doors at the beginning.  Try to take out the archer (he's very weak and he 
holds the second key) and head back to the beginning.  Wait for the gladiators 
to come out of the doors and take them out until they stop coming.  Try to get 
ahold of a Spear and use a charged supra attack followed by a Human Javelin 
(tap X after supra) to take them out quickly.  Try to get their big weapons by 
stealing them or ramming them to make them drop it, then break or cut off their 
arms.  After they stop coming through the gates, resume your rescue mission.  
You will have to beat the big gladiator in the middle in order to get by him.  
He will leave you with a key as well.  You can actually lead him down one way, 
then climb up the other way and get away with the hostage if you let the archer 
destroy the cage earlier.

Alternate (Quicker) Way

Do the same as above and make sure to break the first cage by having the archer 
hit it.  Pick up the Scimitar from the gladiators body on the right and run 
over the left side and free the next hostage.  Cut the gladiator's arm off, but 
DO NOT kill him.  Don't mess with the gladiator with the bow if he comes down 
since he is too weak and will die quickly.  Bring the hostage back to the 
gates.  Try to find a spear if you can.  Run to the right side and climb the 
ladder.  Get the big gladiator to follow you back down the ladder and race up 
the ramp on the other side to get back to where you were.  Climb the ladder in 
the middle that leads to the cage and break it with whatever weapon you have 
(the Spear works the best).  Climb back down and try your best to get that last 
hostage to safety.  If you kill either of the normal-size gladiators, the other 
gladiators will start to enter the arena back at the beginning.  This is very 
risky, but it will get you through without having to rely on fighting much at 
all.

Gold Ranking Strategy

If you kill off all the gladiators in the arena you should be able to get a 
gold rank pretty easily.  Appeal with heads to speed up the process.  Try to 
carry one of the gladiators to the spike pit and toss him off with a suplex for 
a really good boost in Salvos.

GREAT ARENA -- Round II -- Beast Hunt

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 30,000 |
| Silver - 20,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat all the beasts.

For this battle, you will have to fight a mix of tigers, vultures, and an 
elephant.  I would highly recommend starting with the Power Gladius and Meat 
for this battle.  You will need all the food you can get for this one.  There 
is a catapult in the back, which can be used to weaken the elephant.  Don't use 
it while the tigers are still around.  Take out the two tigers first while 
avoiding the elephant.  The crowd should keep you supplied with plenty of 
weapons and food for this battle.  You can always get the elephant to plow the 
statues that hold weapons in the middle as well.  After the tigers have been 
killed, vultures will enter the arena.  A bigger weapon is the best for taking 
them out quickly.  Use the Maul if the crowd throws it to you.  After enough 
vultures have been defeated, two more tigers and some vultures will enter the 
arena.  Try to take out the tigers and vultures as quickly as possible while 
avoiding the elephant's attacks.  After they are gone it will be just you and 
the elephant.  Grab a big weapon and hit him from the back.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start out with the same recommended weapons as above.  This one shouldn't be 
too hard if you appeal to the crowd often.  Try to kill all the beasts in a 
variety of ways to boost your Salvos and be sure to use the exclusive Salvo 
moves for the elephant (Don't Kick the Elephant, Cruelty to Elephants) to boost 
your Salvos.  Throw weapons into the crowd as well, since you will have plenty 
of them available to you during this fight.

GREAT ARENA -- Round III -- Elimination

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 70,000 |
| Silver - 40,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Defeat all of your opponents in each of the four rooms.

For this elimination match you will have to fight through four deadly rooms.  
Start out with the spike shield and use the combo Square, X to defeat the first 
two gladiators and wait for the audience to throw in an actual weapon.  The 
first room contains a masher in the middle.  Don't go toward the back just yet. 
After beating the first few gladiators, a female archer will enter from the 
gate behind you.  Defeat her and lure the enemies in the distance under the 
masher.  Strike the gong when you have one under the masher for an instant 
kill.  Try to lure the two big gladiators underneath it to dispose of them 
quickly.  Beware the archer on the other side when going under the masher.  
Carry the biggest weapon you can find to the next room with you (preferably the 
Maul).

The second room contains two spinning blades and plenty of gladiators.  Try to 
make your way toward the doorway on the right by crouching and walking under 
the blades.  The gladiators will damage themselves pretty badly while trying to 
get to you.  You will most likely have to cross under the blades to defeat the 
archers since they will not come to you.  Use the Maul to destroy the blades if 
you have it with you.  Like before, bring the biggest weapon you find to the 
next room with you.

The third room is comprised mainly of shrubbery allowing archers to hide from 
you.  Walk around in the shrubbery until you find an archer and take her out 
quickly.  As long as you can get ahold of a big weapon and are able to catch 
them or fight them off with smaller weapons, this room should be no problem.  
The final enemy will be a big gladiator with a Halberd.  Knock the Halberd out 
of his hand and break some arms.  Once again, bring the biggest weapon you can 
find, and go across the bridge to the final room when finished.

The final room is a cage match that will pit you against two female gladiators 
and one male.  Lava will rise in the middle of the room during the fight so 
stay to one of the sides to avoid taking damage.  There are only three enemies 
in this room so you should be able to take them out quickly.  Use fast hits (or 
one charged attack with a big weapon) at first to knock the two females down, 
then start to wound them badly.  The male gladiator will arrive after the 
females are gone.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start out with nothing, since all the weapons they give you are not too useful 
anyway. Steal weapons from enemies and kill them all differently.  You will 
need to have quite a variety of Salvo moves to boost your Salvos in this round. 
In the first room, after killing the big gladiator with the helmet, take his 
helmet and try to wait for the audience to throw a Halberd - grab the Halberd 
for some Salvos points.  Be sure to grab a rose if the audience throws it and 
appeal to them with it.  Make sure to throw all unneeded weapons per room to 
the crowd for some extra Salvos.  When you get to the second room try to 
destroy at least one spinning blade for the Salvos.  It's good to leave one 
blade in the room so you can weaken enemies easily by crawling under it - be 
sure to kill the enemies before the blades however or you will not gain any 
Salvos for the kills.

GREAT ARENA -- Round IV -- Team Battle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 30,000 |
| Silver - 15,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break all the opposing team's stone statues before the time limit expires 
   and before they destroy your team's statues.

Really all the weapons that they give you to choose from for this round are 
useless for this battle.  From the starting walk and speak to the big gladiator 
to have him follow you.  Go through the doorway and the first switch will be on 
the right as you exit the doorway.  When the big gladiator lifts up on the 
switch, pick up his Maul and use it to hit the statue in the section of the 
wall next to the doorway you just came through.  About three charged overhead 
smashes should destroy it.  If the Maul breaks before you destroy the statue, 
you will need to throw weapons or rocks at it (use R2 to aim).  Further down on 
the left you will find the next statue with a switch next to it.  A little 
further and to the right you will see a switch that lowers the gate on the 
center platform.  In order to hit this statue, you will have to throw rocks at 
it or hit it with thrown weapons.  Use the R2 button to aim at the statue and 
the Triangle button to throw.  A thrown rock will take off much more than a 
thrown weapon.  To make matters worse, a team member from the opposing side 
will attack you the entire time - he attacks you from the beginning, but his 
attacks are much more noticeable when you have to aim precisely.  Wear him down 
until he is straggling and leave him alive so no others will come.  After you 
have destroyed the statue, continue down the path to find the final statue with 
a lever next to it.  The other team usually has quite a problem with the statue 
in the middle so you should have no problems in getting through this before 
them.

Gold Rank Strategy

Start without a weapon and use the same strategy from up above to destroy the 
first three stone statues quickly.  When you come to final stone statue, have 
your ally pull the trigger, but don't destroy it just yet.  Go over to the 
other side and boost your Salvos by killing the opposing team as they struggle 
to destroy the last remaining statues.  They usually have a bunch of problems 
with the one in the middle.  Drag a staggering opponent to the edge of the 
spikes and toss him off with a suplex for a large Salvo boost.  Like the other 
battles try to bust out any Salvo moves you can think of.  When the clock nears 
the last minute, go back and take care of the last statue.  These statues take 
a few more hits than the statues in the previous team battles, so don't wait 
too long.

> Temple Path

===============================================================================

Boss - BANDITS

Immediately grab the torch in the fire as the battle starts.  One hit from a 
bandit will kill Octavianus so you cannot get hit any.  This battle is not hard 
at all, you just have to know how to approach it.  The bandits will run toward 
you and one will stop in front of you while the other will run behind you.  
Strike the one behind you with the torch one time to make him catch on fire, 
then run up to the other and strike him.  Run back to the other and hit him 
again.  Run back to the second and hit him one more time.  They will both throw 
their axes at you after they recover from the second hit.  Wait from a distance 
and dodge the axe as they each throw it.  Now all that is left is to hit them 
one more time.  Run by the bandits and dodge their lunge attacks and hit them 
as they recover - only hit them as both of them recover or else the other is 
likely to hit you.

GREAT ARENA -- Round V -- Siege

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 70,000 |
| Silver - 40,000 |
| Bronze - 25,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Break into the enemy fortress and defeat the leader.

Just like the last siege battle in the first group of rounds, you only have to 
defeat the leader in order to win.  There are two ways into the fortress this 
time, either through the main gate or the side door.  Either way is about the 
same.  The archer on the left side of the fortress has the key to the side 
door.  To get it without going through the front gate, take him out with a rock 
from the catapult and walk to the wooden plank that holds up the platform he 
was standing on.  Break the plank with a weapon and the key will fall down to 
you if he is on the wooden platform.  If you want to go through the main 
entrance, break the front gate with a rock from the catapult.

I have found it best to wait outside the gates and let the enemies come to you. 
Defeat them until they stop coming and you will only have archers and the 
leader to deal with.  Once inside the fortress you can either go up the ramp or 
the ladder to the side of the rock platform on the far left as you enter.  If 
you go up the ramp you will run into two archers.  Run quickly as they fire at 
you from the distance and try to knock them off or disable one of their arms.  
If you can get rid of the two on the ramp, the last archer in the distance will 
usually chicken out and run for a big weapon.  Use that chance to hunt him 
down.  The leader is the big guy on the middle platform.  Break his arms with a 
Maul and that will limit his attacks greatly.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start the battle without a weapon.  Make sure to destroy the gate and hit at 
least one enemy with the catapult.  If you see a Rose on the ground, try to 
perform an impressive Salvo move and appeal to the crowd with the Rose.  Toss 
Roses, weapons, and arms into the crowd to boost your Salvos.  One of the 
gladiators that attacks you will carry a Scimitar.  Steal the Scimitar and 
start slicing and dicing.  The audience will eventually toss you a Maul - use 
that chance to start breaking arms and heads.  When you fight the leader, break 
or cut off his arms and then toy around with him to boost your Salvos.  Make 
sure to get behind him when he is straggling and suplex him off the platform 
for an extremely good Salvo boost.  If your score is not high enough while 
fighting him, go back to the bottom and throw weapons into the crowd.  Use a 
flame bow to get the 8-hit shooter Salvo on him while he staggers.  He has a 
bunch of life, so you can get quite an impressive amount of Salvo points from 
him alone.

GREAT ARENA -- Round VI -- Sword Struggle

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 95,000 |
| Silver - 65,000 |
| Bronze - 50,000 |
o-----------------o

Requirements:

1) Find the wooden sword (Rudis) that a female gladiator carries.

2) Climb up to the center platform and hold up the wooden sword before time 
   expires.

The most important rule to remember for this round is that the third female 
gladiator to enter the arena will carry the wooden sword that you will need to 
win this round.  She will only come out during the final two minutes before the 
clock runs out.  Until then, you will have to run around the arena and fight 
off other gladiators while waiting.  Use this time to take out the two archers 
in the area - one is on the back left platform and the other is on the very top 
of the middle platform.  Once you get a big weapon, climb the middle platform 
and cut off an arm from the big gladiator that guards it.  He will instantly 
stop his rounds and try to knock you off once you climb the ladder so you may 
have to block his first attack.  All it takes is one charged Halberd or Maul 
attack to weaken him to where he can't do much for the rest of the round.  Go 
ahead and climb to the very top and take down the medium-size gladiator with 
the bow as well.  After you have cleared your way to the top of the middle 
platform, the only thing left to do is to kill the gladiators around you and 
wait for the female gladiator with the wooden sword to enter.  She will enter 
after two smaller gladiators and she will be the third female gladiator that 
will appear in the entire arena.  Once she enters, run up to her and chop off 
her arm to make her drop her bow and kill her quickly.  She will only drop the 
sword when she is dead.  Grab the wooden sword and climb to the top of the 
middle platform.  Press O with the wooden sword equipped at the very top of the 
middle platform to win this round.

Gold Ranking Strategy

It shouldn't be that hard at all to get a gold rank on this round.  Try to kill 
every gladiator differently at first, and make sure to chop off some heads and 
appeal to the crowd with them.  Throw weapons, arms, and roses into the crowd 
to get some bonus Salvos.  Use one gladiator as a shield, suplex another, cut 
off their arms, beat them with an arm, stomp them as they scream in agony, cut 
their torsos off...the usual.

GREAT ARENA -- Round VII -- Decius' Last Stand?

o-----------------o
|   Gold - 30,000 |
| Silver - 15,000 |
| Bronze - 10,000 |
o-----------------o

Exclusive Salvos:

-- Nail Breaker (#170) - Break one claw on Decius' Sestus.
-- Nailed Him (#171) - Attack Decius when he gets his claws stuck in the 
   lattice work on the side of the cage.
-- Broke a Nail (#172) - Break all four claws on Decius' Sestus.
-- The Vega Connection (#173) - Break one of Decius' Sestus.
-- Declawed (#174) Completely destroy both of Decius' Sestuses.
-- Stop & Smell The Roses (#175) - Throw a rose at Decius as he appeals to the 
   crowd.  This can only be done at the very beginning of the first battle.

===============================================================================

Boss - DECIUS

Recommended Weapon: Halberd or Spike Shield w/Mace

Decius can be pretty hard when you fight him your first time.  The best thing 
to do is to run around him and make him attack, then counter him from the back. 
A Sub, Main, & Supra combo with a shield and a one-handed weapon work 
extraordinarily well for wearing him down - especially if you are trying to 
break his Sestuses.  If you can obtain the Halberd from the audience you can 
totally own him with a charged X swing.  Time your swings just right, and he 
will fall prey to the charge attack every time.

He has a lunge attack, a combo, and a grab.  If he does his lunge he will be 
completely open to your attack.  When he does the combo he will be somewhat 
open.  If he hits you with any part of the combo, immediately block to keep the 
rest of the chained attacks from hitting you.  He will only try to grab when 
you get close or when he blocks one of your moves.  Tap the X button and move 
the analog to break out of your dizzy state during the grab and you might be 
able to hit him.  As his Sestuses starts to break, he will begin to use weapons 
from the ground.  He will usually throw them rather than swinging them.  Appeal 
to the crowd when you start to run low in life and they will throw food to you. 
Eat the food only when Decius is far away from you or while he recovers from an 
attack.  You will still most likely get hit when trying to eat, but at least 
some of your life will be replenished.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Start the battle by grabbing a rose from the ground (there should be one off to 
the side, if not, appeal to the crowd and they might throw you one) and throw 
it at him as he appeals to the crowd.  You can only break both Sestuses for the 
first round and you can declaw him.  Hit him while he is blocking to wear down 
the left Sestus and the right Sestus to ultimately break them.  The Sub, Main & 
Supra combo with a one-handed weapon and a shield will work very well for 
weakening his Sestuses.  Try to appeal to the crowd with a rose right after any 
Salvo - you will have quite a few roses to choose from most of the time.  Throw 
a weapon or do a charged supra attack for the last hit for an extra Salvo move.

(Update: Supposedly, you can declaw Decius with a Halberd (perform a Tornado 
Maximus) if the crowd throws one to you)

Boss - DECIUS (second battle)

Recommended Weapon: Halberd

The same techniques from the first battle still work here, but Decius is much 
more aggressive this time around.  He will now do a lunge attack that will 
knock you down instantly if it connects.  Try to make it so that he rams the 
sides of the cage and he will get his nails stuck in the lattice work leaving 
him wide open to an attack.  His claws from his Sestus can be used as weapons 
after they have been broken off (they are just like daggers).  If he ever 
taunts you DO NOT get near him or he will grab you and unleash a world of hurt 
with a combo grab that cannot be broken.  When he knocks you down to the ground 
and hits you, be sure to spam the X button and rotate the analog to shake him 
off or he will take off quite a bit of your life bar.  Other than the few new 
moves the battle will carry on much like the last battle.  This time you can 
break both of his Sestuses and declaw each Sestus in the process.  You can also 
suplex him from behind when he is on his last bar of life.

Gold Ranking Strategy

This is the battle where you will need to gain much of your Salvo points for 
this entire round.  Just like the first fight, you need to concentrate on 
wearing his Sestus down.  Once again you can break the claws and break each 
Sestus.  For the right Sestus, make him break each claw on it by having him 
lunge into the side of the cage.  After all four claws on the right Sestus are 
broken, break the Sestus by making him block weapon attacks.  The claws for the 
left hand Sestus will gradually break off after he has blocked enough of your 
attacks.  The left Sestus will eventually break, leaving him totally 
defenseless.  Be sure to suplex him at least once when he is on his last bar of 
life.  Like the first battle, make the last hit a thrown weapon attack or a 
supra attack for some bonus Salvos.

===============================================================================

===============================================================================

Boss - ANTONIUS

Recommended Weapon: Halberd

Exclusive Salvos:

-- GS Counter (#176) - Hit Antonius from the back after his helmet-breaking 
   move.  This is the move where he jumps into the air and tries to hit you 
   overhead.
-- Skullcrush Breaker (#177) - Hit Antonius with a thrown weapon the instant he 
   begins his overhead attack.
-- AS Whirlwind Dodge (#178) - Hit Antonius from the back after his drop kick 
   attack with the Spear.  Much like the GS, you will have to dodge his attack 
   by moving to the side.
-- Whirlwind Breaker (#179) - Hit Antonius with a thrown weapon the instant he 
   begins his drop kick attack.  This is mainly a luck issue, as he gives you 
   basically no warning before he starts the attack.
-- Kick Ass (#180) - Kick Antonius from behind.

Patience is required to take Antonius down.  Like Decius, you can get him to 
fall prey to the Halberd attacks, but your attacks will need to be more planned 
out to hit Antonius.  He will start the battle with a Great Sword (much like a 
Magnus Sword).  His attacks have a great distance so you will need to stay far 
away from him and wait for him to attack and counter much like you did with 
Decius.  His main attack will be a two hit combo followed by a lunge attack.  
He will be completely open to any attack or combo while he recovers from the 
lunge.  Look for this move and counter it quickly since it will be your best 
chance to wear him down.  He will sometimes do a very quick overhead attack 
that will leave him open to your attacks as well.  On occasion he will do an 
uppercut slice when you get next to him.  Run around him and wait for him to 
attack, then counter until his sword breaks.

Once the sword breaks he will look for a Spear on the ground.  He is quite 
deadly with the Spear and will have a new set of moves.  He will constantly 
poke at you with either a slight jab of the Spear or a thrust.  The most 
annoying move with his Spear is his sideswipe move (similar to a move that 
Agrippa can do).  When he starts to run toward you, he is about to perform the 
sideswipe.  You will most likely have to block it to keep from getting hit by 
it.  If you have no weapon try your best to avoid it by running to the side.  
He also has a very quick drop kick that he will do without much warning.  
Listen for him to yell out "Take this!" and dodge to the side.  He is left wide 
open to this move as he recovers and this should be your main time to get a hit 
in on him.  His Spear will eventually break, and he will search for another 
weapon.  Try to stand by a Spear and guard it.  He is not too good with just a 
normal sword and shield so you can easily get hits in on him if he ever has to 
resort to these weapons.

If you have a bunch of problems when he has the Spear, try to avoid hitting his 
Great Sword by only hitting him twice per recovery.  If you hit him more than 
twice he will block, allowing his weapon to take the damage - so if you only 
hit him twice you will prolong his first stage of attacks with the Great Sword.

Gold Ranking Strategy

Antonius' exclusive Salvo moves can be a bit risky to get, since you will 
mainly have to counter one of his moves in order to get credit for the move. 
Kick Ass can be easily obtained after a lunge or drop kick, and the AS and GS 
counters are not incredibly difficult to pull off, but the Breaker moves can be 
extremely risky.  There are tons of roses in the cage while fighting Antonius 
so you can get quite a few Salvos from appealing with them or throwing them 
toward the crowd (throw them at the cage wall).  As usual, for the final 
attack, throw a weapon or use a charged supra attack.

===============================================================================

-- CITY IN FLAMES --

> City Streets

You need to get through that locked door to the left.  Pick up a rock and throw 
it at the door - two rock throws should break it.  Pick up your Gladius and 
head inside to find an archer in the back.  Duck behind the counter and rush 
the archer after he fires an arrow.  Be sure to grab his fire bow.  Outside the 
house, use the fire bow and take down the two archers up above.  There is one 
in front of you and one is on top of the burning building to the right.  Use 
the rocks once again to break down the doors on either side.  The right 
building has an archer in it equipped with a Guardian Gladius and the left has 
a soldier equipped with a Guardian Gladius.  Go through either way and grab the 
Guardian Gladius from whichever one.  The crates in the back hold plenty of 
food so load up if you need some life.  Grab the Grand Mace from the last crate 
and carry a piece of meat into the next area with you.

===============================================================================

Boss - GEDO & ZEDO

Recommended weapon: Grand Mace or Spear

Do not stand in the middle area between the bushes as the battle starts!  The 
two bosses will both charge at you with their spears.  They will sometimes do 
this attack in the middle of the battle when together so be sure to watch out 
for it.  Claudia will help you battle them throughout this fight.  Only attack 
the boss that she is attacking for the best results.  If either boss starts to 
swing his Spear when you are close, immediately block or get away.  If your 
weapon breaks Claudia will run outside of the area and fetch you another 
weapon.  While she is gone, keep your distance from both bosses since it is 
hard to fend them off by yourself.  As you wear down Gedo & Zedo's spears they 
will eventually break, and that unarmed boss will run to get another one.  That 
is your chance to strike down that boss as much as you can.  When a Spear 
breaks stay right on top of that boss and try not to let him leave the area. If 
he runs away from you far enough to where you can't strike him, throw your 
current weapon to stop him in his tracks.  If you can manage to block each boss 
well enough when their weapon breaks, you can take down each of their life 
gauges tremendously.  Once you have taken one of them down you can totally own 
the last boss after his weapon breaks.  Use the Spear of the defeated boss if 
it is still available (you can carry it into the next area with you if you have 
it after they are defeated).  A thrown Spear attack will almost always hit 
either boss, but Claudia will not bring a Spear to you until you have drained 
their life gauges down to the final bar.

===============================================================================

> Port of Ostia

You are most likely weak from that last boss battle - grab the meat in the 
crate to the right.  There is a save point further ahead on the left.  Claudia 
will help you throughout this area and in the next few areas ahead.  Up the 
stairs to the left of where you start is a fire bow and an excellent place for 
taking a few shots at the enemies in the distance.  Run down the path ahead and 
take down the enemies.  Strip them of whatever you can carry.  There is some 
food in the back crate.  Go down the manhole to the left after collecting 
everything.  

Two big bandits will be waiting for you as you enter the sewers.  They fight 
just like the big gladiator from the arena.  There are a few items lying around 
in the water including a piece of meat and a spike shield.  Bash through the 
branches at the end and open the door.

On the outside, grab the food and climb the ladder.  Eventually you will run 
into two more big bandits.  Use the weapons in the very back inside of the 
crates if you exhaust your current weapon.  Down the bridge to the right, two 
more bandits will stand in your path.  After you defeat both bandits, run back 
and grab the best weapon you can find and bring it with you up the ramp ahead.

===============================================================================

Boss - SEXTUS

Recommended Weapon - One-handed weapon w/shield or Spear

Sextus is surprisingly pretty easy during this first part of the battle, but he 
moves very quickly.  The key to beating him is to dodge to the side as he 
attacks and then counter him much like the Decius battle.  He will always combo 
each attack and will be left wide open at the end his two and three hit combo.  
The only combo you have to watch out for is his thrust combo where he will step 
into you, thrust a few times, and follow up with an overhead attack - the 
thrust part is quick and has a good reach so you may have to block it if he 
corners you.  There are plenty of weapons and food off to the sides inside the 
crates.

When he shouts out "No more playing around!", his attacks will become much more 
deadly.  A flip kick will be added to the end of his thrust combo and he will 
have a few other new moves as well.  He will start to do a drop kick that 
cannot be blocked if he catches you turtling (blocking).  He also has a really 
long sword slash combo that he will rarely do.  It is risky to finish a full 
combo on him during this phase since he likes to deflect the last hit and 
immediately do his thrust combo.  Stick with short combos, only half of a 
combo, or Spear combos to keep him from deflecting.

===============================================================================

-- BATTLEFIELD AT SEA --

Antonius' Fleet of Ships

Use the save point right next to you then run toward the back of the ship.  
Fight through the two enemies and bash the crates to find many items.  Carry 
the food with you in your left hand.  Hit the lever on the wooden pole up ahead 
to drop a bridge to the ship across from you.  Walk midways across the bridge 
and let the bandit on the other side come to you.  Go back to the boat you were 
on and fight him there.  Grab a strong weapon once he is defeated and cross the 
bridge.  An explosion will take out the bridge so you can't go back.  Open the 
panel to the side.

Crouch and sneak out of the doorway.  Target the soldier in the back and throw 
a weapon at him for an instant kill.  There are a few weapons and some food 
behind the door on the right.  Carry the food with you if you don't need it.  
Go down the stairs the bandit was guarding.  Two enemies will dash toward you 
and a fire will break out.  Defeat them and run to the back to fight the enemy 
guarding the door.  Go through the door and bash the crates for some food.  
Climb the ladder.

There's plenty of weapons in the crates behind you.  It would be a good idea to 
take the fire bow.  Hit the lever on the pole to make the bridge fall.  Across 
the bridge shoot a fire arrow at the archer or throw a weapon at him.  Climb 
down the ladder and you will have to deal with a soldier and a big bandit in 
the back.  Hit the lever in the back on the pole as usual to make a bridge fall 
allowing you to cross to the other ship.

Open the door and quietly enter the next room.  Go up the stairs and throw your 
weapon at the soldier for a one-hit kill.  Creep down the stairs and do the 
same for the next soldier to the left.  Down the hall of the room ahead, you 
will find two more soldiers.  The one in the back has a Spear.  Open the door 
in the back and chow down on the food in the crates.  Feed on the other food 
items besides the meat if you need the health.  Trust me on this, DO NOT grab 
the Spear - take the meat and whatever one-handed weapon of your choosing 
through the door at the top of the stairs.

===============================================================================

Boss - ANTONIUS

Recommended Weapon - One-handed weapon w/shield or Maul

Antonius has a new Great Sword this time, only this is a Great GREAT Sword that 
has quite a reach.  This battle will very much test your patience since you can 
only hit him after a few of his attacks.  His attacks are much like the last 
battle when he had a great sword, but they are much quicker and the reach of 
each attack has gone up quite a bit.  He still has his overhead strike, which 
will leave him wide open to an attack.  He also has the same two-hit combo that 
he will sometimes end with a sword lunge - he will be left open after this 
attack as well.  If he ever shouts "I'm ready for you!" run to the other side 
of the boat because he will step forward and unleash a slash that will cover 
quite a bit of area in front of you and it is unblockable.  When he holds his 
blade behind his back and says "Come on.", he is about to run toward you and 
hit you over the head with his Great Sword - keep running to the side as he 
runs to avoid it and attack him afterward.  A one-handed weapon (a mace 
especially) and a shield work pretty well for this battle for a good defense 
and offense.  While hitting him, if he ever deflects your attack, block 
immediately afterwards since he will almost always retaliate with a slash of 
his own.  It is sometimes best to hit him twice as he recovers and stop, so he 
will not deflect your attack, if your weapon's strength is low.  There are a 
few food items around the area inside of the crates and some two handed weapons 
on the statues (let him break the statues).

A few times during the battle he will jump into the background and the camera 
angle will switch to show him up above you.  After the camera angle switches 
back, listen for a catapult sound and then start to run to the sides because a 
catapult in the distance will launch fireballs toward you.  The camera angle 
will switch back to him eventually and he will jump and try to hit you with an 
overhead strike.  Run to the side as the camera angle changes to avoid the 
overhead strike.  He will resume the battle as normal after this move.

Just when you think you have totally owned the battle and figured out all of 
Antonius' attacks he will start to do a new power-up move that will send him 
into a berserker rage once he nears his last two bars of life.  He will start 
to laugh to himself and will say "You'll regret the day you were born".  Right 
when he does this, run up and attack him (do a full charged overhead hit with 
the Maul if you have it) and then you better get ready to block a lot.  He will 
glow a reddish color and his moves will be much faster than they were.  Oh, and 
did I mention that he will sometimes do that unblockable attack twice in a row 
as he owns everything around him with incredible speed?  Well, to be on the 
safe side, I would recommend hitting him sparingly until his berserker rage 
wears off and run around a bunch when you can.

Salvos: 1,000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

36. Meat Pudding - Cut off an enemy's arms, head, and then slice their torso in 
two.

Salvos: 1,500

Extra Info: This can only be done on a medium-size gladiator.  Grab a Magnus 
Sword and use the first two charged X slices to chop off both of the 
gladiator's arms - one charged X slice per arm.  Now, stand in front of the 
gladiator and hit him with the first charged X slice to cut off his head.  You 
may have to hit him once before he's weak enough for the head chop.  As the 
headless body falls keep holding R1, then press Back + X or Square to do a 
Sadist Kick.  The Sadist Kick will make the body stand once again as it falls. 
Right after the Sadist Kick, perform a Square attack with the Magnus Sword to 
chop off the torso.  The Square attack DOES NOT have to be charged at all!  
While the legs fall, you can kick them to gain an overkill Salvo if you want - 
you evil person you!

The third charged X slash may sometimes chop off the enemy's torso without 
chopping off the head first.  I can't find a way to stop that.  Two of the best 
arena's that I have found to do this on are the Elimination - City Arena and 
Artus Dominus - Northern Arena since the crowd will always throw you a Magnus 
Sword once the "Press [] + X" words pop up.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

37. Double Fracture - Break two bones in a single enemy's body.

Salvos: 600
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

38. Triple Fracture - Break three bones in a single enemy's body.

Salvos: 1,000

Extra Info: In order to get this one, you will need to break your opponent's 
arms and break their neck using the Choke Chain Salvo.  I have found it best to 
attempt this one on the first big enemy in the Northern Arena Round II fight.  
Break both of his arms with the Morningstar, then wait for him to kick you, and 
then perform a Rolling Thunder Salvo followed by a Choke Chain.  Keep in mind 
while attempting to break his arms that one X hit while he is stunned will give 
you an immediate broken arm on him.

You can also try on the Desert Arena Battle Royale.  Choose a power Scimitar as 
your starting weapon and use this to break the arms on the big gladiator.  Two 
charge hits will give you two broken arms because of his armor.  Use the big 
gladiator's War Chain to achieve the Triple Fracture Salvo on him.  You can 
also burn him with the many fire traps to make him drop his War Chain early if 
his War Chain starts to annoy you before you chop off his arms.  This will also 
help to make sure that the War Chain doesn't break as fast.

Salvos: 200

Extra Info: Square, Square, X, Square, X without a weapon.  The timing is very 
strange so it is best to tap the buttons until you see the punches coming 
along.  The combo should look like this: Two standing left punches, an uppercut 
with the right hand, a side punch with the left hand, then a stepping overhead 
punch with the right hand.  Once you see the combo coming along you should be 
able to learn how to time it appropriately.

proper timing while executing a Rolling Thunder.

Salvos: 1,000

Extra Info: In order to get these Salvo moves after the Rolling Thunder, you 
will need to time the X button press so that you press it immediately after the 
roll.  For me, it is easiest to do a Rolling Thunder against a big gladiator's 
kick since you can see it coming rather easily.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

successful downward swing with a Maul.

swing.

every time if you just tap X after the Supra Attack.

85. Ultimate Shield Scraper - Break your opponents' shields five times.

Salvos: 1,000

Extra Info: This Salvo is a little ridiculous considering how hard shields are 
to break when you attack.  Read on for a way to get it though!

Your best bet to get this one is to go to Survival Mode and start the first 
arena fight.  At the beginning, grab a weapon and appeal to the crowd until 
they toss you a spiked shield.  You must get the extra shield tossed by the 
crowd to make five shields!  Count all the shields in the gladiator's hands 
along with yours and make sure that there are five.  Once you have confirmed 
five shields, use any weapon along with the shield and kill the first large 
gladiator with the one-handed weapon.  Weave in and out of the crowds and use 
the shield to block when you need to.  DO NOT allow the gladiators to break 
your spiked shield.  Sit down the shield before it breaks!

After the first large gladiator is killed, try to beat down the final large 
gladiator until he stumbles.  DO NOT cut off either of his arms, you don't want 
a small gladiator to get ahold of that Halberd.  When the big gladiator is 
stumbling, take this chance to cut off all of the smaller gladiators' right 
arms.  You MUST go for the right arm since they will only equip a shield with 
their left hand.  Use one of the many Scimitars the crowd will throw to you and 
charge the second hit of Scimitar combo so that it will cut off the right arm 
of each gladiator - hit them with the first hit and charge the second then 
stop.  If you accidentally cut off a left arm, then kill that gladiator since 
he will only be a nuisance from then on.  You really only need about two or 
three gladiators for this to work.

When there are only left-armed small gladiators left then kill the big 
gladiator.  Now the remaining gladiators can only equip either a Dagger or a 
Shield.  Stumbling gladiators will make this easier!  Grab a Mace and find the 
gladiators with the shields.  Stand in front of them and wait for them to 
block.  While they block, rush up and hit them with one attack from the Mace. 
DO NOT KILL THEM!  If they guard again directly afterwards, you can get another 
attack in, but you have to be quick.  Don't let them hit you with the shield.  
Keep attacking their shields until you break them.  Yes, this is going to take 
quite a while, but it will guarantee you that Salvo!

One last thing, when you destroy each gladiator's shield, run and grab another 
shield and place it in front of them as they stumble toward another weapon.  If 
they start to head toward a Dagger, grab the Dagger and place it somewhere else 
or just stand and hold it.  Once a gladiator grabs either a shield or a Dagger, 
he will not drop it, so you have to go out of your way to make sure it is a 
Shield by placing it in his path.

Also, a stumbling gladiator will only guard when he is moving toward you, not 
when he runs so keep that in mind!  Wait for him to start to stumble toward you 
and then he will hold up his shield.

To speed up this process, you can use the shield slap then ram (Square, X) with 
a shield and no weapon equipped at the beginning of the battle to take down the 
shields life gauge quicker.  Again, don't break it!

-- Contact Info

I can be reached at my email address, which is > berserker_kev@yahoo.com <, so 
please contact me if you have any questions, comments, etc.  I don't mind 
receiving emails at all.  All I ask is for you to try to make the email decent. 
I realize that some people do not speak perfect English or cannot type that 
well, so that doesn't really matter to me, but all that I ask is that you try 
to make it readable.

I would prefer you not to add me to your messenger, but if you do, at least 
tell me a bit about yourself and why, or if I know you, tell me who you are.  
One of my pet peeves is when people just add me to their messenger without 
saying anything.  I usually just deny their request.

-- Version History

Version 1.0 - (January 5, 2006) - Walkthrough is finished.  Still lacking a few 
Salvos though.

Version 1.1 - (May 8, 2006) - Two Salvos (#102 and #105) were added and I also 
added a note about the Merchants' Area in the Secrets section for Octavianus. A 
few mistakes were corrected.  If anybody can help me with the remaining Salvos 
that I am missing then I would definitely appreciate it (#12, #13, #36, #85, 
#107).  I know what they are, but give me a good explanation as to how to get 
them.

Version 1.2 - (July 3, 2006) - Added a much better way to get Salvo #154 thanks 
to KaraPitchou, and it works every time!  I went ahead and added the rest of 
the Salvos, but there are a few (#12, #13, #36, #85, #107) that I cannot find a 
definite way to get yet. If you have any way of performing these easily or any 
advice whatsoever, then please email me.

Version 1.3 - (July 5, 2006) - With the help of KaraPitchou, I have found an 
easy way to get Salvos #12 and #13.  I'm still missing a good way to get #36, 
#85, and #107 right now.  Also, the version history has been moved to the end 
of the document, search codes have been added, and the Salvos section has been 
reformatted along with some corrections here and there.

Version 1.4 - (July 13, 2006) - Meat Pudding (Salvo #36) and (Salvo #107) have 
been found and the methods work perfectly!  Thanks to KaraPitchou, once again, 
for the help with Salvo #107.  The only Salvo that I am missing is the Ultimate 
Shield Scraper Salvo, #85.  That Salvo will be the death of me!

Version 1.5 - (August 9, 2006) - The info for the Ultimate Shield Scraper Salvo 
(#85) has now been updated greatly with a surefire way to get it!  A few of the 
other Salvos have touched up with some extra tips as well (Triple Fracture, 
along with a few others).  I found a mistake with Salvo #164 and that has now 
been fixed.

Well, I am happy to say that this FAQ is now totally complete.  Hell yes!  Big 
thanks to all the people that helped me with this guide along the way.  I could 
not have finished it without so many helpful readers!

Version 1.6 - (September 18, 2006) - Changed the date at the top...forgot to 
change it last update... Added a bit of info about Dead Rising to the Contact 
Info section.  This may very well be the final update for this FAQ.  In 
closing... Capcom, for all that is holy, make a sequel to this wonderful game! 
Thanks and see you next FAQ. :)

Version 1.7 - (November 27, 2007) - Extremely minor updates here and there and 
I added my blog address at the bottom of the guide.
