There are several different ways to level up in Persona 5. However, reaching high levels requires a lot of grinding, which can get annoying for some players.
This guide will help you reach level 99 very quickly, however, if you are playing the game for the first time, do not use this method and play the game properly. This method requires players to get some levels before trying it, as it will involve killing a very tough enemy that is hard to kill.
How To Quickly Reach Level 99 in Persona 5:
This method can be hard for new players, as you will have to defeat the Reaper over and over again. Before we get started, players should make sure you save your progress before heading to the location.
This method takes advantage of the Influenza Day. On this day, Shadows are in Despair stat and can be defeated in just 3 hits. 11/13, 11/14, 11/15, 12/8, and 12/9 are Influenza Days, so this is when you will attack the Reaper.
During the Influenza Day, head over to the Waiting Room and wait for the Reaper. Once the Reaper appears, check its stat. If it is in the Despair stat, get ready to attack. You have to be very accurate with your attacks as the Reaper won’t give you a second chance. It will go down in 3 hits so make every hit count.
If you are able to defeat the Reaper, you will get 72,000 XP. This is a huge amount of XP if you are at a low level. You can make the whole process easier by having the proper abilities. Having Hifumi’s – after 6/25 – rank-5 ability called Breakout to have 100% escape rate, or you can have Star’s rank-9 Confidante ability, which will also help you escape. Moon’s Confidante ability can also help you earn some additional XP.
Hopefully this guide helped you level up faster in Persona 5. The game is now available on the PS3 and PS4.
