Like a Dragon Gaiden Akame Points are directly linked to Akame Network, the major side activity of the game where you can increase its levels, unlock bonuses in the form of investments, and partake in the sub-stories which gradually unlock. Earning the points is easier said than done, in my opinion, after which you can then use them to purchase either ability upgrades for Kiryu or use them in Akame’s Network shop.
- Why Trust Us: You can trust and rely on my expertise since I’ve gone through Like A Dragon Gaiden for well over 10+ hours and have also played all previous Yakuza titles with over 500+ hours across all of them.
How To Earn Akame Points
You will unlock the Akame Network activity in Chapter 2, accessed by visiting her office.
After which, you can start earning points to level up the Network’s standing in three main ways, which are also presented in the images above:
- Support Missions: Known as Stroll’n Patrol by Akame, and mostly fetch-quest quests like finding a Black Car to photograph for an NPC.
- Job Requests: If you’re a veteran Yakuza series fan like me, you will instantly recognize these as the sub-stories that can offer large chunks of Akame Point and Cash rewards on completion.
- Activity Log: Essentially a large checklist where completing certain feats can help you earn extra points, such as eating at restaurants or traveling a certain distance on foot.
Lastly, there are a total of 30 Akame Network Network levels, offering a bonus for reaching specific thresholds and rewarding you with surplus points and cash from Akame herself.

My Tips To Maximize Akame Points
After spending 10+ hours in Like a Dragon Gaiden, be sure to prioritize the Investment upgrades I mentioned above so that you won’t have to tediously grind surplus Akame points later on to min-max Kiryu’s abilities. I found that the Stroll’n Patrol missions are the best way to get points, but you should also tackle a few substories every once or then between the main story missions.
These tips will ensure you’re not under-leveled against major fights in Like a Dragon Gaiden as well as help you obtain that Platinum Trophy with ease, too.
