Overview & Review- Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman Job

Joon-gi Han’s unique Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman job is average at best. It boasts access to all the different forms of physical damage (blunt, bladed and gun), as well as extremely high speed, but its attack power leaves a lot to be desired.

In terms of classic RPG archetypes, Hitman is most similar to an Assassin.

Where Hitman falters is its complete lack of access to any good multi-target attacks. It gets Divine Shot, which hits in a huge area, but Divine Shot is relatively weak. At a time in the game where most other classes can wipe out entire enemy teams in one shot, Hitman struggles to bring enemies down to half HP.

His Essence-level skill, Essence of Trick Shots, actually seems to be weaker than Divine Shot, because it only deals full damage when a single enemy is on the screen (perhaps the worst added effect possible for a target-all attack).

To top it off, Hitman doesn’t gain any Attack stat bonuses, instead piling up tons and tons of Dexterity bonuses, which seem to increase critical chance. Increased crit chance is somewhat useful… once you’ve swapped from the Hitman job to a job with decent attack power.

Hitman’s ultimate weapon doesn’t even have any special effects. It’s just a strong weapon with a small agility bonus.

Hitman does indeed get a lot of turns thanks to its exceptional agility, but the moves it makes when it gets those turns are underwhelming. It’s probably better to turn Joon-gi Han into something else in the long run, like a Breaker or a Host. Thanks to his well balanced stats, he does well in pretty much every job.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman Best Weapon

The best weapon for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman job is called the Darksilver Fists EX EX. Like all the best weapons, it’s obtained by upgrading a low level base weapon at the Romance Workshop in the Commercial District in Ijincho.

The base weapon you need is the Inlaid Gloves, which you can buy at the Casino in Chinatown in Ijincho for 500 points.

To finish upgrading the weapon, you need a Dragon Knuckles, which you can win from the 10th Floor of the Sotenbori Battle Arena or you can buy at Le Marche in Kamurocho for 10 million yen.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman Accessory

The Job Experience accessory for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman Job is pretty easy to obtain. It’s called the Bullet of Memory. You can get one from Substory 25 and you can get a second one from a gold chest in Kamurocho in the building across from Lullaby Mahjong where you meet Adachi’s detective friend.

Since you can obtain multiple Bullets of Memory, Hitman is able to equip two at once to boost its job experience by 2x.

Character Skills – Yakuza Like a Dragon Hitman Job

Every job in Yakuza Like a Dragon has two specific Character Skills, which, once learned, can be used by that character no matter which job class they’ve been assigned.

For the Hitman job, the character skills are:

Rapid Shot: Take out dual pistols and repeatedly shoot up an enemy.

Phantom Shift: Joon-gi Han heightens his focus to the limit, boosting Accuracy and Evasion.

Rapid Shot has its uses because as a multihit attack it reliably makes short work of the Invested Vagrants you’ll be farming throughout the game in order to grind experience.

Phantom Shift, on the other hand, is completely useless and you’ll forget you have it almost as soon as you acquire it. There’s just not much need in Like a Dragon for temporary defensive buffs.
