Five Awesome Rifle Builds You Should Try in Toukiden: Kiwami

Toukiden: Kiwami is the ‘not really a sequel’ sequel to Toukiden: Age of Demons, it’s more of an expansion pack really. Kiwami includes the original AOD game plus the continuation of the story in new chapters.  But wait there’s more, the game also features new characters, weapons, armors, Mitamas, and new monsters to fight. Another awesome feature of Kiwami is that your saved file in Age of Demons can be carried over to Kiwami, cool right? To those who haven’t played Age of Demons will have their money’s worth when they buy Kiwami, it’s the ultimate ‘version’ of the game.

If you played AOD before and you think your character is the sickest slayer in town after killing all the boss monsters, think again. Using just your AOD gear and Mitamas are not enough to kill the bosses in Kiwami. The good news though is that your Mitamas now maxes out at level 12 with 4 passive skills compared to AOD where you can only max out at level 10 and 3 passive skills. There’s a whole lot of Mitama combinations you can cook up for different weapons and bosses. Since I’m a generous guy, I’m going to share with you the awesome builds I use for one of the new weapons in Toukiden: Kiwami, the Rifle.

DCT Rifle Build
Mitama: Lady No
Puncture+ (Amplify)
Puncture (Time +10s)
Puncture (Reduce)
Verity (Lv. 2)

Mitama: Date Masamune
Ebullience
Expert Destroyer
Mitama Pulse
Verity (Lv. 3)

Mitama: Sakamoto Otome
Puncture+ (Accuracy)
Fervor
Verity (Lv. 4)
Verity (Lv. 3)

DCT puncture build

This Deception build enhances the Puncture active skill which lowers the defence of the monster or boss body part hit by Puncture. This active skill makes it easier to break body parts therefore decreasing the time it takes to kill a boss. The recommended weapon for this build is a high precision rifle, preferably the Phantom Rifle which has Sniper bullets. Just go into Snipe mode (O button) and fire away at the Miasmal Nodes (the pink parts/dots).

SPD Rifle Build
Mitama: Sasaki Kojiro
Vigor+ (Special)
Agility+ (Dual)
Swordsmansip
Verity (Lv. 3)

Mitama: Oishi Kuranosuke
Bound Souls
Devastation
Verity (Lv. 4)
Verity (Lv. 3)

Mitama: Okada Izo
Devastation
SPD Master (Minimize)
Energy+ (Accuracy)
Verity (Lv. 3)

SPD Agi dual build

This build focuses on survival, perfect for missions where you are required to solo a boss. Agility+ (Dual) allows you to nullify two hits, whether the attack is a nuke from a boss or a simple slash from a lowly mob. This build is also suitable for Naginata users as they won’t have to worry about the slow build up or loss of their Hyperskilled state (the time the slayer is glowing red). Damage is decent since you have Verity and Devastation. Do note that a high precision weapon is advised for this build.

PLN Intensity Build for Rifles
Mitama: Arahabaki
Intensity (Stock +2)
Intensity (Amplify)
PLN Master (Amplify)
Intensity (Time +10s)

Mitama: Sarutahiko
Heroes’ Rally
Insight
PLN Master (Extend)
Intensity (Time +10s)

Mitama: Jippensha Ikku
Protection of Heroes
Intensity (Destroy)
Breaker (Reduce)
Ablution+ (Restore)

PLN intensity build

The purpose of this build is to maximize the Intensity active skill. If you don’t what Intensity is, this skill allows you to fill your Weapon Gauge super fast so you can hit the boss with a Destroyer. If you know what you’re doing you can hit a boss with two destroyers before the effects expire. Protection of Heroes and Intensity (Destroy) makes sure that you won’t run out of Intensity. The Divine Fox Rifle armed with Pierce ammo is the best combo for this setup.

PLN Rifle Build
Mitama: Todo Heisuke
Fervor
PLN Master (Extend)
Verity (Lv. 4)
Verity (Lv. 3)

Mitama: Minamoto yoshitsune
Insight
Expert Destroyer
Swordsmanship
Devastation

Mitama: Date Masamune
Ebullience
Expert Destroyer
Swordsmanship
Mitama Pulse

PLN build

Like the build above, the goal is to fill the Weapon Gauge quickly. Only this time we won’t be relying on Intensity, instead we’re going to rely on regular attacks to fill the gauge. Expert Destroyer and Swordsmanship are the main stay skills here mixed in with a number of skills to give a decent damage. I find that using the high precision rifles with Pierce bullets is the way to go as it fills the Weapon Gauge faster compared to using other bullets. This is a very balanced build overall and is my second most used setup when I play Toukiden Kiwami.

SUP Altruism Build for Rifles
Mitama: Konohanasakuya
Charity
Altruism+ (Nimble)
Altruism+ (Destroy)
Altruism+ (Reduce)

Mitama: Lady Ina
Majesty
Altruism (Time +10s)
Altruism+ (Qinggong)
Altruism+ (Amplify)

Mitama: Takasue’s Daughter
Affliction (Lv. 4)
Altruism (Time +10s)
Altruism+ (Surprise)
Altruism+ (Accuracy)

SUP Altruism build

Altruism is a buff that increases the attack and defense of you and your allies for a limited time, the perfect setup for multiplayer support role. The buff lasts 20 seconds longer with this setup and with added effects like increase in precision and decrease in Focus consumption. You can use any rifle using this build but I personally use the Phantom Mk. 2 Rifle or the Kingdom Collapser.
