While the current Glider is already a very useful tool, there are a couple more ways in which players can increase its utility and effectiveness. This can all be done via Technology Development, which is made possible by exchanging Foreign Books and improving the relationship with Igashichi Iizuka at the Photographic Studio located in Yokohama or Edo.

Players can then use the money to unlock new possibilities, such as assassinations from the Glider, faster flying, and even throwing bombs while in the air. In co-op, it can be very spectacular to see multiple Gliders soaring through the air and taking down groups of enemies at once. Be sure to grab as many Foreign Books as possible and get these upgrades when possible, which will only improve your experience in the wild.
