Posted By | On 03rd, Sep. 2018 Under Article, Video Game Tips


Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a remake of the original Yakuza 2 which had released back in 2006, so it’s a great time to experience the game all over again, or even for the first time. There are a lot of unique aspects in the Yakuza games, so if you would like to know any information about the game at all, this guide is here to help you out.

If you’re ready, then let’s get started!

GENERAL TIPS AND TRICKS

Don’t Ignore Your Base Stats

When you earn experience points, there will be a lot of different things vying for your attention. While it’s important to invest in new skills or heat actions, you should also remember to invest in your base stats such as defense, attack, and the rest. These stats are very important and they should be upgraded regularly unless you want to handicap yourself in the game.

Unlock The Substory Finder

There are a lot of substories in the game, but they’re quite easy to miss if you don’t know where to look. This is why it’s essential to unlock the ‘Substory Finder’ ability as soon as you can, as it will allow you to find various substories and earn rewards for completing them.

Play The Clan Creator Minigame

There are a lot of minigames in Yakuza Kiwami 2 that will be vying  for your attention, but out of all them, the Clan Creator is particularly important. This is because it grants good rewards and a decent amount of experience as well. Furthermore, there is even some story content related to the minigame, so make sure you check it out.

Gain Access To Kamiyama Works

You will come across a substory called ‘A Pervy Peddler’ in the early sections of the game, and once you finish this substory, you will gain access to Kamiyama Works. This place will allow you to repair weapons, so make use of it to keep those weapons you like from breaking.

Keep Kiryu Well Equipped

While the melee combat in the game is useful by itself, you can get even more  powerful by making use of equipment. You can buy equipment and you can also just pick them up from random places. Kiryu can equip three items at once, so ensure that you make use of this to get the best out of him in combat.

HOW TO FARM EXPERIENCE POINTS

Experience points are needed so as to improve your stats and also to learn useful new abilities. There are a number of ways to earn experience points including playing minigames, finishing main story missions and substories, eating food, and through combat. However, out of all of these, the best way to earn experience points is to just eat as much food as possible. In fact, there are some abilities that will ensure that you maximize the amount of experience you gain and these are: Boost EXP Gain, Boost Hunger Gauge, and Boost Digestion.

Once you get these abilities, try and get your hands on the item called AppStim RX which allows you to eat more food. With this item in hand, just go around and eat food as much as possible to earn a lot of experience points. This is the best way to farm experience points in the game.

HOW TO FARM MONEY

Initially before you get the relevant skills to farm money, you can make use of some items that will increase the amount of gold you earn from fights. The two items you should keep at hand are: Sengoku Coffee, and BOSS Light Sugar. Buy as much of these as you can but keep in mind that their effects do not stack. Once youve earned enough experience points to unlock some skills, get the ‘Law of Attraction’ skill which will make Nouveau Riche thugs randomly spawn at places and you can get about 50,000 bucks each from beating one of them. Another skill to get is ‘Token of Appreciation’ which will get you more items and money from combat.

The best way to earn cash early on in the game is to gamble but before you do so, you’ll have to get some items ready. These items are in Sotenbori Coin Lockers E3 and E4, and so you’ll have to find the required keys. You can get the E3 key just west of Don Quixote’s northern entrance, and you can get the Blackjack Amulet from the E3 Locker. What the Blackjack Amulet does is that it ensures you get nothing but Blackjacks for a short while. As for the E4 key, go to East Shofukucho Street and take a look in front of the information booth there, and you can get the Bust Amulet in the E4 Coin Locker. The Bust Amulet when active will make the dealer go bust every time for a short duration.

Now that you have the items. just activate one at a time and then max out your bets. Once one item’s effect wears off, repeat the process with the other and once  that one’s used as well, just take the chips and exchange them for plates with the cashier. You can then sell these plates at the pawn shop for a lot of money. With this method, you now have a way to always earn lots of money whenever it’s needed.

CLAN CREATOR GUIDE

The Clan Creator minigame is back in Yakuza Kiwami 2 (it was present in Yakuza 6) and it’s one of the more rewarding minigames for you to spend your time with. This feature will become available in the game once you reach the fifth chapter. This section will tell you all you need to know about how Clan Creator works. There is also an online component to the Clan Creator in the form of Limited Missions, and at the end of the online missions, the results for the top 10 players.

Getting a higher rating after a match will yield better rewards. The rating is dependent on things like how long it took to defeat enemies, how much money you saved, and more. In the Clan Creator, players will have to organize their troops by selecting some employees. You should make sure you select employees that are going to be useful for a particular mission before you begin a match. You can also recruit more employees and strengthen existing employees and equipment.

You will be able to recruit new employees by completing side-missions and simply by finding random NPCs around the game’s world. In a match, you will control nine characters and your goal is to defend your facilities from the enemies. You should notice where the facilities are shown on the map as this is the key to winning the game. Pay attention to enemy patterns and try and react to these with  clever tactics. If an employee is losing strength, you can raise their morale by spending some money, but keep in mind that this will reduce your overall score. You will have to move your characters around the map to engage in battles and also to pick up valuable item drops here and there.

While there are some special enemies such as bosses whom you will have to fight occasionally, these are the main kinds of enemy fights you will encounter:  Brawlers, Gunmen with ranged attacks, Bombers who can throw bombs, Batters who go straight for your facilities, Strongman enemies who are slow and engage in melee combat, Rocket Launchers who also go straight for equipment/ facilities but from a distance by firing rockets.

As for the kinds of employees you will have at your disposal, they are of four types: Balanced employees who has attack and defense balanced, Attack type employees who focuses on attack, Defense type employees who has greater defense, and Protection type employees who fight from a range and can also move quickly through the map. Make sure you use the unique capabilities of each of these employee types to get the best results in battle.
