Yakuza Kiwami 2 Beginner’s Guide
We will be guiding you on combat, spending your free time in the game and how to make yourself better in the game by purchasing new skills. We will also detail on how you can earn some easy money in the game, as you will need money to make different purchases in the game.
Purchase New Skills
Combat is the most important aspect of Yakuza Kiwami 2 and you will spend a lot of time in fighting bad guys. You never know when you might be ambushed by a couple of thugs on the streets of Yakuza Kiwami 2 so it is very important that you make yourself more powerful by purchasing skills.
There are tons of different skills that you can purchase in Yakuza Kiwami 2. These skills range from normal combat to heat meter skills. Purchase them and make sure that you use them in combat to increase your combat effectiveness.
Use Weapons and Equipment
The world of Yakuza Kiwami 2 is filled with different weapons and equipment that you can use to your advantage. Sometimes during fight sequences, enemies will appear with some sort of a weapon. You can disarm these enemies and pick up the weapons yourself.
You can also purchase weapons from shops if you want them to be readily available to you. Head to the Ebisu Pawn Shop and browse their weapon inventory to buy anyone that you like. Weapons will help you a lot during combat as they deal much more damage to enemies rather than punching them in their face.
Each weapon in the game has a durability level so they will break after busting up some enemy faces. You do not want to enter fights with damaged weapons so instead of purchasing a new weapon every time, you can simply head to Kamiyama Works and get your weapons repaired from there. To unlock this shop, you will be required to complete the ‘A Pervy Peddler’ side story quest.
Play Side Quests
Another great aspect of Yakuza Kiwami 2 is its side quests. The game is literally littered with side quest. Side Quests are not only a source of getting involved in the game more but they are also the best source of income in the game. Completing side quests will earn you easy money for the game. These side quests can be completed at any point of the game.
Apart from the side quests, there are tons of mini games as well such as the Cabaret Club and Clan Creator. They have their own missions and they will introduce new characters in the story as well. You must play these mini games, as they will make you earn a great deal of money easily. Clan Creator also earns you great amount of XP in the game.
To make it easier for your to find and start side stories and quests, you can purchase the ‘Substory Finder’ ability in the skills section and you will be good to go. This skill will help you find all the sub stories and side activities easily on the map.
Increase Base Stats
Apart from purchasing new skills and upgrades, you can also increase the base stats of Kiryu. As you earn experience points, you can easily invest them in your base stat skill tree to increase your basic stats. Increasing base stats will make Kiryu better overall as his basic skills will be improved.
Improving base stats will really help you as you make progress in the main story and reach tougher enemies nearing the end of the game. You should make attack and heat gauge stats a priority as you can find health supplements to refill your health easily. Upgrading attack and heat gauge stats will allow you to land more deadly punches to your enemies.
Bonus Tip: Easy Money Farming
If you are looking for some quick buck in Yakuza Kiwami 2, you must play the Cabaret Club mini game. Earn fans by dancing in the club and then as you invest more and more time in the club, you will start to earn some serious buck. As your fan base increase, your income will also increase. This is the best and easiest way to earn money quickly in Yakuza Kiwami 2.
