Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash: Grinding and Leveling Tips
One of the only drawbacks to Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is the amount of grinding you have to do. You have to level up your characters to increase their health and make sure you stay alive long enough to get Soaking Wet mode or for your cards to activate. You have to level up your guns to make sure you and your team have enough firepower to put a dent in the enemy. You even have to level up your Pet and Skill cards themselves to make sure you get the most out of their attacks, buffs, and debuffs!
You level these things up by collecting duplicates of cards you already have. Initially, this will be an incredibly slow process, as most of the cards will be new to you. Luckily, the game gives you duplicate weapon cards (since you start with a complete set) to enable you to level a little bit early on. However, if you really want to level your favorite Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash girls, guns, and cards up, you'll need to grind.

Nothing Wrong with a Little Bump and Grind
The most effective way I found to grind in Peach Beach Splash is by going through the bosses of the initial story mission sets. The fastest one for me was the boss of the Hebijo arc: a giant version of Ryouna. This boss fight consists of simply blasting away soap suds from Ryouna's body until you've done enough damage to shrink her back to normal size. As absurd as this mission is, it's also the fastest boss fight and on three-star difficulty, it will get you a three-to-five star Hebijo pack each time you complete it.
The beauty of this giant Ryouna mission is unlike most other boss missions in Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, you're not under a time constraint nor do you take damage from the boss itself. All you have to do is avoid being hit by ninja grunts and floating explosives while you shoot the suds off of Ryouna. If you manage to do it without losing one of your lives, you're likely to get a five-star pack in addition to 800 zeni for repeat attempts on three-star difficulty.
If you get enough of these packs, you'll eventually be getting five-star duplicates which give you 100-exp per card. That's 100-exp for doing a mission that takes about 1-3 minutes when you're warmed up.
For optimal clear speed, I recommend the Gatling Gun. If you use manual aim, you can clear a good amount off with just two tanks of ammo. She has different phases where, if you've done enough damage, she'll shift positions and gain temporary invulnerability. I use this time to reload, but I'm constantly moving as I do so to avoid getting attacked by grunts. Wash, rinse, and repeat this to level up your characters, guns, and skill cards as quickly as possible in Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.
This is the most effective way I've found to level up in the new Senran Kagura so far. If this helped you or if you've found a better method, let me know in the comments section below!
