The Battle of Hulaoguan Pass Walkthrough
You will begin this game in front of your first Battle Flag which you can use before proceeding through this first fort. There will be five more Battle Flag locations in this Battlefield. You can start making your way around the fort, and slowly clearing the enemies in the area. The tents in the area can be checked and looted for any equipment, ammunition, and spare Arrows.
If you check the wooden platforms, you may find a large Ballista loaded with limited Arrows to use against nearby opponents. You will find a few enemies straight ahead towards the fort entrance and a few pacing guards directly in front.
Shooting at one will immediately cause a reaction and they will start to run at you. Clear the surrounding enemies. When you are cleared, you can return to the ballista if you haven't used up all the ammunition. Look out for any soldiers at the watch towers or taller platforms and clear them. They will likely be ranged enemies.
Wooden Fort - First Marking Flag
One Marking Flag can be located towards the side of the fort with the open entrance. There will be a tent at the corner that you can enter. Enter the tent and this is where you will find the location to raise the Marking Flag.
Directly across on the other side of the fort is another open tent you can enter which will have a chest you can loot. Clear the fort of any more enemy opponents. Once you have cleared the fort area, that means you would have also faced Xu Rong and defeated him. Make sure to check all tents and watch towers for any leftover loot. Then leave the fort and pursue your objective marker location.
Mountains - Second Marking Flag
You will have a few paths main paths you can take, but may encounter a few warriors along the way. Be sure to look up for any signs of warriors on higher ground. Climb atop the higher hills and cliffs to gain a vantage point and view anymore lingering opponents in the area. This will also give you a chance to shoot any unsuspecting opponents and do a great deal of damage before engaging in close-ranged combat. You may be able to spot a Flag Location on a platform with a chest just below.
To reach this platform, there is a route behind that you can take which will take you through the mountains. From the image shown above, hop off the cliff and head left until you find an opening leading behind the hill. This will allow you to reach the Marking Flag Location. The route you take to reach this platform can also be taken to continue to approach the next fort where your next marker is.
Second Fort & Battle Flag
Continue towards the second fort which will be facing away from your final objective marker, and once you reach the fort entrance, use the raised platforms just across the entrance to get out on the other side of the spiked fence where another Marking Flag location will be. From the image above where you see the fort entrance, the raised platforms can be found once you face left past the rock hill directly ahead.
When that is done, enter the fort where more warriors will greet you and you will need to clear them. The Battle Flag location will be at the center of the fort.
Second Wooden Fort - Third Battle Flag
When you have cleared the area of enemies, raise your flag then search the tents. There will be a chest to loot in the large tent atop the raised platform. Next to this tent is a smaller one closer to the fort entrance. The corner of this tent will contain Sun Jian Soldier's Letter x1.
One more chest can be found on the opposite corner atop the wooden towers which will be next to another wooden platform with a Ballista perched on it. You can use the ballista to destroy the 2nd highest wall marked in white then climb the 3 levels to reach the chest and loot it to obtain Dragon Vein Essence x1. The location of the chest is encircled below.
From this tower, you should be able to view the garrison gate. When you are ready, exit this fort and move towards the red objective marker. From the vantage point looking outwards, it should be the path to your left. This will be towards the left arch exit.
You may encounter a larger brute enemy if he wasn't previously cleared. Just beyond him is a Battle Flag location with the garrison gates and trenches behind. Below is the Battle Flag captured in the distance en route to the garrison gate behind the enemy.
You may be able to interact with Sun Jian nearby. If you turn to face the trenches, your view should be identical to the image below. Sun Jian will tell you to open the garrison gates with the mechanism up ahead. Before you proceed, take the path behind Sun Jian on the left to loot the chest.
In the Trenches
Make your way towards the garrison gates by entering the trenches directly in front. This is where you will encounter some demons such as the Demonized Soldier or Chang Gui. Search the corner of the trenches to find Golden Cicada Shell x1.
To exit the trenches, look for a platform to climb. There will be a raised cliff edge that will line the edge of the trenches protected by a Chang Gui demon. A broken platform can be used to reach this edge that will have a Marking Flag Location.
Destroy the crates found on the same cliff platform to gain a chance at obtaining more loot. Another Marking Flag can be accessed from the trenches. Look out for a flat cliff area that can be hopped up on. This leads to a short hidden path that only has a Marking Flag at the very end.
This part of the trench is close to a set of open gates with a spiked fence and a siege tower. This will have a broken-off bridge with a loot drop at the end of it. Drop off this broken bridge point to find the hidden path. The broken-off bridge with the loot pick up is circled and highlighted in the image below.
Finish up the area and the trenches before approaching the garrison gate.
Garisson Gate Entrance
As you approach you will encounter Hua Xiong. If you get close enough, you will initiate the Boss encounter against Hua Xiong and the Hua Xiong Military Elite will initiate an invasion. You can circle around to this area later on since your final objective will be through the garrison gates. Clearing this boss battle will also give you access to the Battle Flag in front of the Garrison Gates, which we will deem the last battle flag, Battle Flag six. You can clear this boss encounter first or decide to finish off the surrounding area including the surrounding yard and fort towers before you return to face Hua Xiong and raise the final Battle Flag on this Battlefield. If you wish to face him now, his boss encounter details can be found below.
Siege Towers - Marking Flag 6 & 7
First, try to reach the mechanisms first atop the siege towers in front of the gate and slowly make your way on top of the fort walls and towers while clearing any enemies and demons you encounter. There will be ballista weapons on a few raised platforms that will also give you a good view of the enemy in the area. You may even be able to spot the next Battle Flag on the second level of the fort towers, Battle Flag 4.
You can reach this location later on, once we start climbing the siege towers. You can also then take an initial shot with the ballista once you've gained access to them in order to deal a lot of initial damage before engaging in close-range combat. When you are ready, approach the siege towers and climb them. Rotate the mechanisms on top of the surrounding siege towers to create a better platform for you to advance onto the fort walls. Just below on a nearby lower platform will be a Marking Flag location.
A few more intractable siege towers can be found in the same area. Another Marking Flag location will be near a ballista on a raised wooden structure which can be hopped onto from a taller siege tower. This siege tower will be situated closer to the fort wall than the first one.
Be careful of the number of Demonized Soldier, Demonized Fanatic, Demonized Officer, and Demonized Warlock enemies all surrounding the area of the garrison gate. Use the newly activated platforms to navigate your way to the fort walls while on top of the towers. You can also use the ladders that lean against the tower to make your way up the first Rampart. You may encounter an Oil of Awakening x1 at the edge of a part of the fort wall that is crumbling and broken off and crumbling. This is met with a siege tower already attached to it that can be used to hop up on the wall. If you drop down directly off the right of the siege tower, you should also be able to obtain Rank 5 Leather x2. The fort wall rampart area will be lined with plenty more enemy soldiers and Demonized Soldier enemies. Below is an image of where the Oil of Awakening was obtained.
Fortress Towers - Battle Flag 4 & 5
Once you get on top of the walls and fight off the opponents in this area. You can open the doors and one will contain a Shitieshou Demon and a ladder leading up.
When you use the ladder, there will be a chest there with some loot and a Cup of Cordiality. On the same level just next to the chest will be the fourth Battle Flag location. Make your way around the fort walls to access the rest of the towers, open the tower doors you find and you will find one with two chests and a few more hostile soldiers guarding them. Once you clear them and continue, you will eventually reach a small courtyard area on top of the walls. This will have your fifth Battle Flag Location and the last one to raise before heading back to the garrison gate entrance for the final Battle Flag if you haven't raised it previously.
Hua Xiong Boss Battle
By this point, you would have cleared the surrounding area, including the siege towers, the fort walls, and fort towers. Approach the Garrison Gates and face Hua Xiong. There is a chance that his elite would have already invaded prior to the boss battle, if not, you would have to face them both. During this battle, use the fire in the combat area to your advantage to potentially deal damage over time. Be ready for his charge attack where he uses his polearm and charges forward. Dodge out of the way to avoid damage intake. He also has a jump slash attack where you will need to back away. In between these attack, you may charge at him with a series of melee attacks. Some of his basic attacks include a combination of melee swipes and slashes. Find a window of opportunity in between attacks and try to go aggressive during these openings, he will then attempt to switch to a defensive play and start to dodge roll backward allowing you to advance towards him or even lead him into a nearby flame. Slowly repeat the process until his HP bar depletes and he is defeated. You are now cleared to raise the final Battle Flag in this location and go through the garrison gates. Loot the area then open both sets of garrison gates to trigger the next cutscene.
Lu Bu Boss Battle
When the cutscene concludes, your final boss battle against Lu Bu. Lu Bu begins the fight while mounted on his steed. However, after a few successful hits, he will continue the fight on foot. If he is separated from his hare, steer clear of the path of his horse while in battle.
While mounted, Lu Bu has a number of ranged attacks, melee attacks, and charge attacks. His arrows can be shot and will quickly fan out or spray outwards and then reel back into the center. His ranged attacks are usually avoided by either keeping a great distance or remaining close to Lu Bu. This will allow the arrows to fly directly over you, avoiding damage. When it comes to his special attacks, he has a special ability that can ignite his weapon and arrows that will additionally deal Burn damage when he deals all his regular attacks. This is where the Cleanse Spell can be used to alleviate any inflicted Burn effects. If you have any difficulties with this fight, it is recommended to call in some Reinforcements to slow down his attack reactions and give you time to gain a better position to attack.
He moves very quickly so it is sometimes easier to catch him right before an attack to deal a hit. He can quickly advance and jump very high. When he is close enough, his attack animations will have a drawback to prepare you to react to his attack incoming attack. The best way to face him would be to be patient in between his attack sequences while circling around to try to steer clear of his line of sight. This will also give you a chance to find an attack opening if his back is turned toward you.
Continue to find attack windows to slowly exhaust his HP until he is defeated. His defeat will immediately trigger the next cutscene and complete the mission.
