There are two pipes leading towards a safe point. Save your game and go back, jump past the first two pipes, and walk towards the single one. Turn 180 degrees and jump onto the first of the two pipes (towards the save point), then hang there and release. Turn the camera to see four or five respawning ninjas coming at you. Load up your ultimate technique and kill the ninjas. If done correctly, you will receive 2,000 essence per attempt. This works with a Dragon Sword, but the best weapon is the Lunar Staff. You can get that weapon further in the chapter then backtrack to this location. After you have done this, walk up the ladder, go to the same pipe, and let go again to have the ninjas attack again. You will have more than enough time to load up your ultimate technique. Occasionally they do not come all at once. If this happens, you will have to fight one or two ninjas at the ladder. You can use the essence collected to upgrade your weapons in the first chapter (Dragon Sword and Lunar Staff). Simply go to Muramasa then return to the farming location. Upgrade your Lunar Staff first because it works well during essence farming. You can then buy a Talisman Of Rebirth and save the rest of your essence.Infinite yellow orbs in Chapter2:When you run up the planks of wood to get onto the roof, you must fight three enemies. Do so, but do not fall down to the room below. Just kill the enemies, jump back to the planks, and jump back to the roof. As you land, quickly double charge your weapon of choice and kill these enemies again. They will continue to respawn as long as you do not jump down into the room below. It is possible to farm 120,000 yellow orbs in around two hours.Rod Of Trial in Chapter2:The Rod Of Trial is an item that grants access to the Test of Valor– a series of challenges found in several chapters that, after completing a test, will generously reward the victor with rare and useful items. In order to get the Rod Of Trial, defeat all the enemies running down from the stairs and into the yard. After killing all the ninjas, the candles behind the fence will light up and the Rod Of Trial will appear. If you are having difficulty defeating the enemies in the yard, target the archers around the perimeter before killing the ninjas rushing towards you. The arrows from the archer are difficult to spot, especially if you are surrounded by a couple ninjas. The in-game description of the Rod Of Trial is as follows: “A rod symbolizing the fighting spirit, cast from the purest of gold. Those upon whom it is bestowed face an endless path of battle, as though they walked through the underworld itself. It is said that those who carry it must face hordes of opponents in fights to the death known as Tests of Valor. According to legend, this treasure was one possessed by the god of war himself.”Easy “100 Hit Combo” achievement in Chapter3:Go next to the save point near the first Test of Valor warp point and, from there, drop down to the subway. Here, you can get the 100 hit combo with almost no effort. After dropping down, run toward the subway cars and try to get into the little hole under the cars. Kill almost everyone. You will eventually see two men appear near the opening from where you came from. If everyone is dead, one will rush up while the other tries to hit you with arrows. Wait until the person running toward you is almost in the pit. Once he is that close, jump up in the air and hit him with shurikens. You will get around four hits each time. The ninja will just stand there and not attempt to block. Do this as quickly as possible. As you hit the ninja, he will stumble back. Eventually you will need to close the distance. Once this has occurred, you must start jumping back and forth to avoid the person shooting the arrows and continue your shuriken attack on the first ninja. He will die once you have hit him about 70 times. Once he dies, you hear him grunt. You now have to close the distance with the other ninja. He will also run toward you to close the gap as well. Repeat with the same trick as mentioned above (jump and throw) to easily get the achievement.Xbox in Chapter4:Enter the Statue Of Liberty museum and find a breakable wall that looks like it is made of straw. Slice it open to find a silver Xbox that will restore your health to full.Infinite yellow essence in Chapter 5:Continue up after the mini-Boss. After the second, wall run over the gap, kill the Wyrms, and enter the hallway. A few steps short of the bend, quickly start charging. Wait for the skeleton scorpions and unleash, then go the way you came out of the hallway a few steps andgo back in. Repeat as many times as desired.Easy “100 slashes” achievement in Chapter 6:Before the skeleton mini-Boss, a big number of scorpion-like skeletons will attack. Jump around them while throwing shurikens until you reach a 100 hit combo. Dead doorman in Chapter 8:When you reach the room with a train in it, go to the train to find a corpse that resembles the body of the doorman from Han’s bar (that asked you before for a ticket).Vigoorian Flail in Chapter 9:Just after defeating the tunneling worm sub-Boss and following the path it makes out, there will be a small fork in it. If you take the fork to the right, you will find yourself climbing a small hill. Atop the hill is a corpse. Examine it to find the Vigoorian Flail.Shoot Sonia in Chapter 13:At the start of the chapter, shoot Sonia with an arrow or similar weapon.Giant Crystal Skull in Chapter 13:Collect all 30 skulls to acquire the Giant Crystal Skull. At the start of the chapter, after going through a few rooms with enemies, you will reach a large green pillar in a room with centaurs. The Giant Crystal Skull is also there. Its description reads “Obtainable only by those with superhuman powers of observation”.Infinite Yellow Essence in Chapter 14:When you get to the save point and go to the room where the Blood Eels appear, go back to land and take out the Eclipse Scythe. This strategy works much better than using the harpoon gun because the eels are not that smart and cannot damage you while you are on land. Keep attacking the Blood Eels until they are all dead. Once the eels are dealt with, go back to the save point. Save the game and the eels will automatically respawn each time you go back into the room. This makes collecting Yellow Essence easy, as long as you stay on land to deal with the eels.Boss obliterations hint:Multiple Bosses in the game actually have an obliteration you can perform on them. For example, towards the end of Silver Worm’s and Fire Armadillo’s lives, they will be stunned. When you can walk up, press Y to finish them off. Note: The greater fiends and Geshin don’t have one.Weapon upgrades hints:-If you don’t want to waste 30,000 karma points, do not upgrade the Dragon Sword. Use one of the other weapons available–the Falcon’s Talons are recommended. By level 3 or 4 you should be able to max upgrade the weapon of your choice, then use it throughout the game. In the beginning of Chapter 11, there will be an intermission sequence in which you get the Dragon’s Eye, which will level max the Dragon Sword automatically. -You will lose 30,000 Karma if you upgrade the Dragon’s Claw and Tiger’s Fang because in Chapter 13, when you defeat Genshin the final time, you will get The Sword of the Archfiend–which replaces the Dragon’s Claw and Tiger’s Fang with the True Dragon Sword and The Sword of the Archfiend.-To fully upgrade a weapon, it costs 30,000 karma points. When you do upgrade a weapon, you have to pay 10,000 points. When you do that, the point count to upgrade that weapon goes up to 20,000 karma points.Crystal Skulls locations:The Crystal Skulls can be found in the following locations:Chapter 11. Once you obtain the Fire Ninpo, you will come outside to a ledge where you are supposed to jump off and land below to fight more enemies. If timed correctly, you can jump across to the roof on the other side to get the skull you can see from where you are standing. If you fall short, use the ladder to climb up and try again.2. The skull is located up next to the first flaming archers you encounter. Run up and jump off the tree halfway down the stairs as you walk towards the bridge they are firing from.Chapter 23.

Near the start of the sewer area, after learning the Wind Blades technique, there should be a short path to the right with a metal staircase. Ascend the stairs to reach the skull near the top.6. After learning how to perform the Invisible Path technique, go the opposite way of the main path. There is a small crevice in the wall you can run back and forth on to reach a rock platform with the skull.Chapter 47. Go to the streets just after exiting the subway. After running for a little while and turning a few corners, you will find an open area and some crowded apartment buildings to your right. There is a skull on one of the steel apartment exterior staircases/balconies near a ninja corpse. Use Wall Run to reach it.8. Near the middle of the level, when jumping from the broken overpass to a ladder, you should see a ledge with a skull on it in front of you. Either use a correctly timed jump to reach it, or wait until after you get above that area and climb back down a ladder to collect it.9. The skull is on the girders inside the Statue Of Liberty. When climbing up the stairs to the saved game point, jump on the girders in the middle of the room. You should see the skull resting on one of them.Chapter 510. Located on a boat in the second body of water you can access. Instead of crossing the bridge, hang left and go around the corner to where you obtain the Kusarigama. Run across the river. The skull is on one of the boats.11. Shortly afterwards, you will walk into a marketplace with some tables and chairs with a single exit on the right-hand side. The skull is just to your right outside the doorway you exit.12. After you collect the spear gun and swim through about two areas, there will be groups of exploding jellyfish creatures. Reach the second group of such creatures on your right in a small passageway. They will respawn for awhile. Keep killing them and collect essence. After they are all dead, swim over there for a skull at the bottom of the floor to your left.Chapter 613. At the beginning of the level, immediately turn around and jump on the section of roof behind you that slopes down into the water. Cross over to the other side of the roof. Walk down a few step to the skull tucked away very close to where you were originally standing when the level began.14. After reaching the guillotine, cut the rope for the skull.15. In the library with a fireplace inside the castle, where you fight a lot of ninjas, there is a skull on one of the bookshelves. It will appear after you make the books fall out by hitting the bookshelves.Chapter 716. When you first reach the controls at the front of the ship and start destroying them, a skull will be uncovered slightly to the left of the main control panel.17. The skull is in an alcove on your right after you start walking into a new hallway around the time that you find the Tonfas off a dead ninja. It is near some debris.Chapter 818. The skull is in the snow when you are crossing the minefield. It is found after the first section of mines where everyone was shooting at you through the windows of the three story building.19. Once you get back inside again and leave the bell tower, you will descend a winding square staircase. The skull is in one of the holes on the wall with candles in it.20. After you enter the subway, in the room before where you find the dignitary’s ID card is a skull on the right-hand side of the room.21. The skull is on the one of the gears about halfway up the area where you are jumping from one to another. It is on one of the medium-sized horizontal gears.Chapter 922. Go to the big open body of water you reach with the two searchlights. Go all the way to the right-hand corner. The skull is behind one of the big wooden towers.23. After using the jade mask and entering a new area, you will eventually reach a rope you must use to climb across to reach the other side. About midway through this climb (just past the giant tree), is a branch you can turn and swing towards on your right. Swing to this and then to one more branch for the skull.24. After defeating the worm Boss, immediately after the game save is another area with smaller worm enemies. The skull is on the far right-hand side of this room on the ground.25. After watching the short intermission sequence with the dead ninjas floating down the river, jump into the water. The skull is in a small alcove on the left near the bottom, midway to the other shore.Chapter 1026. After the fight with the worm enemies in the acid pit, use a Flying Bird Flip to reach the area above you. Wall Run on the wall to your immediate left, then jump to the one on the right. Once back on solid ground, turn around and Wall Run one more time from the wall on the left and jump to the ledge in front of you to reach the skull.27. Once you enter the area with many flying dragon enemies, you will quickly reach a path descending to the area below. Once it levels out, follow it around to the left instead of where you normally go. The skull is on the ground in a small open area.Chapter 1128. After you passing the second shop, you will climb up a ladder and jump out a window into a familiar village setting from the original Ninja Gaiden.

The skull is in a clearing inside a small wooden structure on the right.30. Immediately after leaving the ninja fortress, instead of climbing across the rope in front of you, go to your left and drop down into the opening in the floor. Follow this area back to the beginning of the original game and jump down all the ramps to the far bottom left.
