At the beginning of the battle, there will be four spies where you are, so defeat them all and then take the western path out of there. The gatekeeper will turn on you, so take him down and the next part will depend on which character you are playing as. Sima Shi and Sima Zhao will have to go to the east and capture the supply depot, while the other two characters will need to capture the armory.
When you have captured whichever base you were told, make your way to the central square and capture that next, then make your way to the throne room, which should now be open. Defeat the officer there and Cao Shuang's vanguard will appear in two spots. Make your way to the south end of the map, as Cao Shuang will appear with some of his officers. You need to quickly defeat him, as he will try to run away and if he does, then you fail the battle. Take him down to finish.
|Whenever Cao Shuang appears at the end of the battle, he will have three officers with him, who are Cao Xun, Cao Xi and He Yan. To get this star, you to defeat those three before you take down Cao Shuang. This is a problem as Shuang will attempt to escape from battle and if he does, then you fail the battle. That means you need to quickly take the three down quickly with hopefully a Musou attack and then get Cao Shuang.|
