Like a Dragon Gaiden: Akame Points [Earn, Investments, Tips]

Learn everything about the Akame Network in Like a Dragon Gaiden, how to earn points for levels, the investments, and the requests.

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.

Key Takeaways
  • Akame Points are essentially the secondary currency of Like a Dragon Gaiden, unlocked when introduced to the Akame Network activity.
  • Akame Points are earned by completing Support requests for random NPCs, Job requests, AKA Sub stories, and through various feats in the Activity Log.
  • Investments are important as you can use these to help with Akame Point progression via Discounts on abilities and more.
  • In my experience, try to do the Support requests and Side stories in between the main story so you can freely get all of Kiryu’s ability upgrades at the end.

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.

Investments (Image by me)

As you’re generating cash via random drops from enemies and through sub-stories, you can primarily spend them on various kinds of investments, which are passive bonuses to help you in Akame Network’s point progression.

Important: I strongly recommend grabbing the Akame Point increasing and Ability Discount investments first, as these will greatly lessen the overall grind.

Following is the list of investments that you can unlock across 4 different levels:

Unlocks the Akame Shop. Level 1 80,000 Yen
Unlocks extra items for sale in the shop. Level 1 80,000 Yen
More items added to shop inventory Level 1 150,000 Yen

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.

This concludes my guide; while on the subject of Akame Network and its points, be sure to also check out my guide on how to find the Flying Takoyaki for a support request.
