This has been tested, you can see some vids on youtube about it...

Rush seems to be glitched anyway, since you can cancel it into Beast and do a Rush-style combo in Beast with Beast damage - doubt this was intended. Just dodge in Rush and mash Square while switching using Change: Evade. You'll do the Rush-style combo with a Yellow Aura and be in Beast Mode.

Yeah, that's the glitch. Apparently it affects Kiwami as well which is how ppl are clearing the last Ultimate Battle in under 10 minutes. Mix of Tiger Drop and the exploit.

Use Beast and try to start fights near bikes or motorcycles. Beast gets super armor for almost all the attacks, plus you can easily throw guys and do a ton of damage, and unlock the ability to throw from the ground as well. I have over 300 KO in Beast compared to like 50 and 60 in Brawler and Rush.

Granted I'm mostly talking about the boss fights, normal fights are still cake thanks to - as you mentioned - Beast.

Nearly all my fights end in 1 second due to the Beast heat move where he grabs one guy and swings him into the others. Piss easy.

And how do you do that exactly? If I even try to grab one I'm swarmed and lose my Extreme Heat before I can even press Triangle. What you say sounds good on paper but is barely functional.

Bosses fall out of combos where I'm back attacking them or they randomly get armor for no reason. The CH10 boss was actually one of the biggest exercises in frustration I've dealt with in a video game for a while. Just not fun at all.

Hey Delusio! Long time no see! The fight just before the car-chase wasn't too bad for me as he actually had a pattern and tells, but how enemies will just randomly get hyperarmor or bounce out of reach after a back attack is pretty stupid. I've had a boss finish his combo, I get behind him and attack him, he suddenly dodges away and starts beating me to death - like how did the designers want us to play then?

Tried to edit down the boxes but keeps saying invalid HTML or something until I take the quote bits out then it looks like I'm having a conversation with myself so I'll just answer the how do you do that exactly bit concerning the Beast heat move it's really easy. As soon as the fight starts grab the one in front of you and press triangle instantly. As soon as you have grabbed him you get instant heat. I've done it about 200 times now, fights over in a second as TEL says

This game is definitely harder than 0. I had to burn potions alot during boss fights compared to other Yakuza games.

Bosses and their permanent super armor really annoys me. Just whacks me as im hitting them with no stun from my hits.

Some of the fights in thsi game are just... bad. There's no sugarcoating it, they're terribly designed. Some of the Komaki Training fights come to mind especially.

Seriously, who the f*** thought the Image of Four Gods training was a good idea? Lets put you against 4 people all of who are basiclaly bosses with super armor and knock downs and give it a time limit. That's fun!

It doesnt help that Dragon style is stupidly underpowered at this point either. My Majima's at Rank A, so it's not like I've been slacking on moves.
How dare the Gods work against me! I don't remember giving them permission.

Sorry, how are you gettign instant heat by grabbing in Beast? My skill trees are almost max (few 85 pointers left) but I get nothing when grabbing.

I have no idea what the skill is but it only works at the start of a fight, it only works the first time you do it in a fight and it doesn't seem to work if you get hit before you manage to grab anyone. The heat move itself is a red heat move so if you have an upgraded heat bar and no heat at all it won't fill up enough to let you do the move however you can just throw him to the floor to get that last bit of heat then grab someone else

Huh. I have one where a knockdown gives me full heat gauge, but nothing for grabbing.
