Persona 5 Guts
As mentioned earlier, gaining Guts in Persona 5 can be pretty random. The game will occasionally reward players with a Guts boost for doing different tasks. Guts also comes as an additional bonus to various in-game activities. One such example is studying in the school library. Not only does this action grant players Knowledge but also increases their Guts.

The fastest way to get a decent amount of Guts is to participate in Tae Takemi’s clinical trials. As the name suggests, they are dangerous which is why they reward players with a handsome amount of Guts for taking part. Players will meet Tae Takemi before Kamoshida Castle Palace so they can start upgrading their Guts fairly early on in the game.

At night time, players can visit the burger joint on Central Street in Shibuya. Attempting their Big Bang Burger Challenge for a nominal fee will reward players with a prize and a fair amount of Guts. The challenge just checks the players current Guts level and if it is above a certain limit, they pass the test and take away big prizes. Even if the players fail, they still get a small amount of Guts so it is a win in every case.

Similarly, working at the Crossroads bar and ordering coffee from the shop will also give players a nice boost to Guts.

Just like every other social stat, Guts can also be improved by reading books from the school library or purchasing them from a bookstore. Players can check the description to see which bonuses a book provides and then read it in the library or on the train.
