Clear the game on any difficulty to unlock Boss Rush and 100 Animal Murder modes. Boss rush is self-explanatory; 100 animal murder are ten challenges where Guts needs to kill a set number of enemies under various conditions (no spells, no tools, tools only, time limit, low life, counters only, etc.).
While almost all the extra weapons may be unlocked by completing the 100 Animal Murder Challenges, the last weapon can only be earned by clearing out each stage of enemies and ambushes. Once the percentage of the stage is reduced to zero, no more enemies will inhabit that stage.
