Items are objects found throughout Samurai Warriors Chronicles that give a bonus or benefit to the player. They are earned through defeating officers, breaking boxes or haystacks, and completing missions. Some items are a one time use, such as healing the player, while others are equitable items that can be given to an officer or used in weapon synthesis to build a stronger weapon.
These items only appear for a brief time on the map and must be collected to receive their bonus. The item box and weapon box are one of the main ways players can obtain equitable items and extra weapons for improving their character's stats.
