 Hey guys, Bkstunt here with a FAQ/Walkthrough of Devil May Cry / DmC. I was
really questioning whether or not I should do this guide. I've had a love/meh
relationship with Devil May Cry for years now, meaning that I greatly enjoyed
1 and 3 and didn't really care for 2 and 4.

 I suppose Capcom sensed the general "mehness" (totally a word) from fans as
well and decided to hand the franchise over to someone. Since Platinum Games
was busy, that someone was Ninja Theory, makers of Heavenly Sword and Enslaved:
Journey to the West. I hadn't played either of those games, which didn't help
me out when it came to deciding if I should do this one or not.

 Well after playing through the DmC Demo and most of Enslaved, I think we all
know that DmC won me over. So come join me on this crazy demon-slaying
adventure!


 Enjoy the guide everyone!

 First of all, let me say that my primary motivation for writing guides is,
and always will be, for the gamer. However, as I've learned by writing just
a few guides on new games, it can hit your pocket book! I wish they'd give me
these games so I could crank out great guides, but they don't! Ah, maybe one
day!

 Until then, if you've found this guide helpful please consider donating to
help me offset my costs. You can donate to my paypal account below:

 Style is VERY important in Devil May Cry's history. So important that
it gets it's own section! There's a few things I feel strongly that you
should know about STYLE.


 o You gain Style as you FIGHT.
 
 o Style is used at the end of Missions to score you.
 
 
 FIGHTING
 --------
 
 Let's cover fighting first. As you fight, you will be given points for
your actions. The game recognizes each and every move you perform and scores
you on it. You even get scored for things like:

 - Combos
 
 - Kills
 
 - Parries
 
 - Evades

 - Environmental Kills
 
 - Enemies hurting eachother
 
 
 All of these things add up and go towards a running tally called
Style Points. Style Points are one factor you get graded on when you
beat a mission.


 As you fight the right side of the screen will keep track of your Style
Points as well as tell you how well you are doing in battle. There are ranks
of Style as well, as shown below from WORST to BEST:


  ___  
 |   \ 
 | |) |
 |___/  I R T Y   ( Points x 2 )

   ___ 
  / __|
 | (__ 
  \___| R U E L   ( Points x 3 )
  
  ___ 
 | _ )
 | _ \
 |___/ R U T A L   ( Points x 4 )
  
    _   
   /_\  
  / _ \ 
 /_/ \_\ N A R C H I C   ( Points x 5 )
 
  ___ 
 / __|
 \__ \
 |___/ A V A G E   ( Points x 6 )
  
  ___ ___ 
 / __/ __|
 \__ \__ \
 |___/___/ A D I S T I C   ( Points x 7 )
 
  ___ ___ ___ 
 / __/ __/ __|
 \__ \__ \__ \
 |___/___/___/ E N S A T I O N A L   ( Points x 8 )
  
  
 
 The KEY to racking up a good style bonus is TWO things:
 
 - Do NOT get his. You will be sent down in the rankings which just kills
   your point accumulations.
   
 - Variety! Doing the same mover over and over will lower the point value
   it rewards drastically. Mix up your moves and weapons!
   
   
   
 MISSION COMPLETE SCREEN
 -----------------------

 Now let's talk about the Mission Complete screen. This is where you are
graded based on what you did. You are judged on a total of FIVE areas,
with a final score being given out afterwards. The areas are:

 o STYLE POINTS
 
    This is your Style Points you accumulated in the mission. This is
   why getting a high ranking for the score multiplier matters so much.
   
   
 o TIME
 
    This is simple. How long did it take you to complete the mission?
   Note that FAST isn't ALWAYS best. Keep in mind that some missions you
   can complete without fighting everything, and that quickness may very
   well hurt your Style Points.
   
   
 o COMPLETION
 
    This shows how many of the hidden items you've found. If you are
   following this guide you will find all of them, naturally. 100%
   Completion always rewards a SSS rank. Note that on some missions you
   will have to COME BACK and find items you can't access at first, so
   your Final Score is coming to suffer until then.
   
   
 o ITEMS USED
 
    Your score will take a hit if you use items. Plain and simple.
    
    
 o DEATHS
 
    Did you die? Your score will take a big hit then. Note that it is
   better to use an item and live than it is to die in a mission. If you
   are struggling to live, you probably aren't worried about maxing your
   score anyways...


 This all goes into your FINAL SCORE. The points will be multiplied
together to form it. From here you can submit your score to the leaderboard
(if you are offline) or it will automatically be posted (if you are online).


 Now that you know these basics of STYLE, go out and make me proud!

 Here's some basic tips and tricks to the game.
 
 
(-NOTE-) This guide is still very new, so if you have something that you
         think belongs in here let me know!
         
         
 o Throughout the guide I will be referring to "Red Orb Containers". This
   is literally anything that gives you red orbs. These containers vary so
   much that you should always be on the lookout. You can find orbs by
   destroying trash cans, pockets of red flesh, lights, boxes... basically
   anything that looks red-ish and crumples up when you get near it. Oh,
   and spiders! Kill all the spiders!
   
   
 o If you're having a hard time in the game put those red orbs to work
   buying items like vitality stars and gold orbs. If you're having an easy
   go of it or can at least hold your own, use them to buy health and devil
   trigger upgrades instead!
   
   
 o Be sure to go back and re-play previous chapters after Mission SIX and
   Mission TEN. You will find a lot of new items as well as get yourself
   some upgrade points.
   
   
 o As you get late in the game it's easy to forget that you still have
   DEVIL TRIGGER. Remember that it charges up as you fight so use it every
   now and again. You may as well.

             KEYS: ONE     SECRET DOORS: ONE     LOST SOULS: SIX
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
        
        
 When you start a game you'll have to pick a difficulty. You have these
three choices from the start:

 o HUMAN: Enemies are weaker and do less damage. Select this mode if you
          don't usually play melee action games, and just want to experience
          the story.
          
 o DEVIL HUNTER: Enemies use core attacks, and do moderate damage. Select
                 this mode if you've played other melee action games, and want
                 a bit of a challenge.
                 
 o NEPHILIM: Enemies are stronger and more challenging. Select this difficulty
             if you've played Devil May Cry before, and want the full DmC
             experience.
             
             
(-NOTE-) This guide is written on DEVIL HUNTER difficulty.     
             
             

 After watching the scenes that establish Dante is a party animal (and still
loves pizza just like we remember), you'll be woken up by a news broadcast.
The Order, huh? Interesting. Not as interesting as the girl knocking at our
door though. Looks like we've been careless. Watch as the Hunter Demon
destroys your house as Dante gets dressed. That's a well-placed piece of pizza,
isn't it? Afterwards it will leave us alone while some smaller demons come out
to play. Thankfully we have our broadsword Rebellion with us.
        

 Time to play! The game will teach you the HACKER combo (Triangle x4) and
then the DEATH COIL combo (Triangle x2, pause, Triangle x3). After taking
out the first two enemies (Who are called "Lesser Stygians"), three more will
pop up. The game will tell you how to LAUNCH enemies here (Hold Circle) and
the juggle enemies in the air. Nothing too hard.

 Take out these enemies and three more will show up. The game will teach you
how to evade now (R1), but remember that you can do this in the air as well.
Slay these enemies and you'll find your first WHITE ORB.


 WHITE ORB
 
  Slain enemies release White Orbs, which fill Dante's upgrade bar.
  
  Each time the bar is filled, Dante can unlock a new ability via the
  Upgrade Shop.
  
  
 You will also find a RED ORB while fighting these foes:
 
 
  RED ORB
  
   Slain enemies release Red Orbs which can be spent at the Item Shop on
   consumables, health upgrades, and more.
   
   
 Kill any enemies that remain and a nearby obstacle will disappear. The woman
from before will tell us to follow her. BEFORE you do so let's pause just a
moment to check out the left side of the area to find a GARBAGE CAN that
shrinks as we approach. You can destroy this thing and similar items like it
(light poles, etc.) to gain RED ORBS. Throughout this guide I will be calling
these items RED ORB CONTAINERS. Every little bit helps.


 Let's follow the girl now. You'll learn you to jump here (X), but you've
already likely figured you that you can jump AND double jump (X x2). You'll
also see your guns dangling in the distance, but the Hunter is back and
destroys the boardwalk!

 Quick, we have to run to safety! This section is fairly easy (its still
early in the game!) so run forward and keep to the left. A trailer will fall
over to the left so steer right and keep running. Steer to the left as more
trailers fall to the right. Double Jump the gap when you come to it and run
and jump to the slanted trailer in the distance.
        
        
 You'll see a quick scene here and then you'll have your girls back.
Ebony & Ivory, together in perfect harmony! The Hunter will leave again
and some new enemies called "Bathos" will show up. Time for some target
practice. 
        
        
   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   EBONY & IVORY
        
    High caliber handguns capable of maintaining high rates of fire against
    a single target.
    
    Though they deal low damage, Ebony and Ivory are useful for interrupting
    weak enemy attacks. 
        
    
   GROUND AND AIR: SHOOT: Square
   
   
 Awesome. The game will tell you how to shoot (Square, of course) so take
this time to gun down the Bathos. They will generally just sit there and
take it (there's a joke there, somewhere...), but will also toss out grenades
so be careful. The grenades explode after some time but also show their
explosion range so it should be really easy to dodge them. After awhile,
some Lesser Stygians will show up to join the party. Focus on them and let
the grenades come down. The grenades will actually help you out here as they
can't tell the difference between friend and foe so use them to help take out
the Stygians and gun down the Bathos afterward.


 After battle destroy the garbage cans nearby. You'll also find some DEVIL
SPIDERS here which you should always take the time to kill as they will give
us red orbs too! You'll run into the girl again who will introduce herself
as Kat. She'll claim to want to help you and can help you out of limbo, saying
you don't want to fight the Hunter. Hmm... well, maybe.


 After the cutscene, turn around and you'll see some Devil Spiders and a
red orb container. The RED DOOR here can't be broken through right now. We
have to wait until AFTER MISSION SIX. Don't worry, I'll remind you.


       AFTER MISSION 6:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Hey guys, welcome back. Now that you have Eryx, go ahead and charge it
 | up and punch through this Red Crystal Door. You'll see that there is a
 | .: LOST SOUL 1/6 :. back here. Trick tricky! He's ours now though!
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 
 
 Continue forwards destroying the crates until the game shows you your first
LOST SOUL (if you don't count the one we can't get yet, that is). These things
are a tad disturbing but need freed. They act as a sort of hidden treasure
throughout the game, so I will be numbering them as we go along. Use melee
attacks on them to destroy them. Destroy this one for .: LOST SOUL 2/6 :..


   LOST SOUL
   
    Souls trapped in Limbo. Free them all to increase your Mission Completion
    Bonus.
    
    
 Cool. BEFORE GOING TO THE RIGHT, turn to the left and jump across the gaps.
You can break several red orb containers this way (the one on the right lamp
is challenging, but you can line up some shots easily enough) and at the end
of the path you will find a .: COPPER KEY :.. Throughout the game we will
find keys to open secret doors and do missions. Keep following the guide and
we'll collect all the keys and lost souls!

 Head back and continue on the right path. Destroy the objects until you get
to the Tilt-a-Whirl. The city will tell you to die (aggressive much?) as more
Stygians show up. The game will teach you how to pop up enemies without
following them up (tap Circle), so if you want to get fancy get under the
Tilt-a-Whirl and pop up some enemies into it! I HIGHLY recommend killing all
of the enemies here that way for a trophy:


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'It's only the rain' Bronze trophy here.

  
 Once all the enemies are dead take the other path out of here and near the
ledge the game will teach you to HOLD X to jump higher. Pretty simple. There's
actually a pathway to the left here too, but we need a special ability for
that that we don't have yet. You can get it after MISSION TWO.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  This path is simply three Angel Lifts, one after another. They lead
 |  out to the far boardwalk in the distance. Out here you can find a
 |  .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :.. Not really worth the effort, but oh well,
 |  it's nice to have these things.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 
 
 Back to business. Use the high jump  to continue on. Head down the slope
and at the end double-jump up to the ledge above you. You'll find a new item
up here, a Golden Orb:


   GOLDEN ORB
   
    Can be used upon death to resurrect Dante.
    Gold orbs can also be purchased from the item shop.
    
    
 So here we have our phoenix down. Interesting. This will undoubtedly be
useful. Let's continue on to the next open area and keep to the right. You'll
find a red orb container and some Devil Spiders, but take the corner and you'll
also see a green items sitting out in the open. Pick it up for a new item:


   SMALL VITAL STAR
   
    Restores a small portion of Dante's health.
    
    During gameplay, press start and select 'Items' to use Vital Stars.
    

 There is another Angel Lift point off to the left here. Once again we must
be past MISSION TWO to use this, so come back later.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  This path is simply three Angel Lifts, one after another. They lead
 |  to a small area with .: LOST SOUL 3/6 :. and a red orb container.
 |  Very nice.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 

 After getting that head back to the open area and you'll see a statue
light up. This thing is a DIVINITY STATUE and is what we're going to use to
upgrade Dante! You should have an upgrade point by now so use it to upgrade
something. It's really your choice on what to upgrade, but I personally like
the STINGER skill (I also tend to like new skills over upgrades, but I dunno,
go with what you're comfortable with). Also note that you can try out new
moves! How cool is that!?


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Time to go to work, guys' Bronze trophy here,
         assuming you purchase something.
    

 Continue on and you'll see that the hunter is back. He'll jump onto the huge
Ferris Wheel as Dante sees his coat. The Hunter will then push it towards you
as Dante will go grab his coat. You'll see how Limbo can affect the real world
as well. Interesting.


 Run forward and take out the team of Stygians and Bathos that show up.
Remember to let the grenades help you and take them all out. After you do
the Hunter will show up in the background and try to shoot his claw at you.
This also makes a giant hand try to grab you. Be sure to avoid it (if you do
get hit you need to fight your way out) and after a couple of attempts Kat
will call out to you. Follow her into the fun house to see a scene.

 Keep going through the corridors destroying anything you can for orbs. You
will be surprised by the Hunter's hand at one point as well. Don't worry
about the barred door on the left, we'll get there. As you continue on keep
your eyes open to the right for a COPPER DOOR. Let's use that key we picked
up earlier here.


 COPPER - AIR BRAWL
 ------------------

 OBJECTIVE: Kill all the enemies within the time limit.
            Enemies only take damage in the air.
            
 TIME LIMIT: 1:20


 This is an interesting challenge. You have to keep the enemies airborne to
damage them so any launching attacks automatically become much more valuable.
We really only have our LAUNCH combo, so simply follow enemies up in the
air and juggle them once you do.

 Keep up strategies like that and avoid attacks and you'll soon clear this
challenge. It shouldn't be too hard since you only have to kill five enemies.
Once you do, you will be awarded with a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :.. Very nice.



 END COPPER - AIR BRAWL
 ----------------------


 Continue on to the giant mirror to see a short scene. Very nice! You got
skills, sir. Continue on past where the mirror was and kill the Devil Spiders
you see as you can get red orbs from them. You can head left or right here.
First, head slightly to the right and look on the right wall. You'll see a
.: LOST SOUL 4/6 :. here. Destroy it. Further down the corridor you'll see a
door glowing red. We can't enter this door until after we finish MISSION TWO,
so come back later.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Once you have the Arbiter, you can smash through this door. Inside
 |  there is a TON of red orb containers and .: LOST SOUL 5/6 :.. Kill
 |  it, collect all the orbs, and kill the Devil Spiders. Nice haul!
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 

 Head back and go down the left path. You'll be shocked by what you see here
(I'm here all week!), but more importantly you'll see a small hallway to the
left (ignore the right path for now). Go through it to kill even more Devil
Spiders. There's also hanging red orb containers in here you should destroy
as well. Be sure to turn around and look above the entryway you came in here
from to find another  .: LOST SOUL 6/6 :.. 


 After all of that head back and continue on. You'll reach a room with an
exit, but that'd be too easy. Watch the short scene and get ready to take
on a number of Stygian foes. You can use the gears in this room to help you
with environmental kills as well (use STINGER to throw them into the gears
if you can). After killing a number of foes off, the room will grow, putting
the exit even further away. As you head towards it you'll see gears on the
ground blocking you way by moving back and forth. Oh, a classic timing
obstacle!

 The first section should be easy to get past, just wait for a gear to move
and get past it. The next one you need to double jump over. The third one
you need to wait until the gears move away and then run through (or jump...
doesn't really matter).


 Continue on and watch the scene. Ha! They're clearly making fun of the old
series here. Heh. Kat will appear again and tell us the Hunter is bullet-proof
(we already knew that). Once you have control break the two red orb containers
to the right and then you can check out the Divinity Statue if you wish, but
then its time to run. Follow Kat and jump over the narrow gaps you come across.
Keep following her but note you can destroy the light poles here for more red
orbs. Head towards the giant clown face and soon you'll see a scene.


 Time to face the Hunter! Check out the boss fight info below.


 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+

 |                                                                          |

 | - General Information: This guy is huge, but still fairly easy. You'll   |
 |   want to attack his face and hands to hurt him. After some attacks he   |
 |   will prop himself on his elbow: press the attack and he will actually  |
 |   fall down, which is a PRIME TIME to attack!                            |
 |                                                                          |
 |   After awhile it will jump to a tower in the background and shoot its   |
 |   claw at you. Dodge like you did before and use your guns to shoot it   |
 |   down. Once he falls, quickly get to him and lay on the pain.           |
 |                                                                          |
 |   Near the end of the fight the Hunter will make the edges of the area   |
 |   dark and hide, then use its kunai throw multiple times in a row.       |
 |   Here you can either focus on dodging until it's over (which is easy    |
 |   enough) or you can COUNTER his kunai back at him (hit it back at him). |
 |   Pay attention to the attacks below and  you'll be fine.                |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Kunai Swipe: The Hunter attacks with the kunai in its right hand. It   |
 |   can attack high or low, depending on what you do. Get in quick after   |
 |   its attack and attack its face.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Kunai Stab: The Hunter uses its knife to stab down into the floor.     |
 |   Dodge the attack and retaliate quickly. You can only get off 1-3 hits  |
 |   here so don't be too greedy.                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Kunai Throw: The Hunter throws his kunai at you. It will come spinning |
 |   at you either horizontally or vertically. Jump over the horizontal     |
 |   spin (Double Jump, that is) and dodge over the vertical ones.          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - High Jump: The Hunter will jump high up into the air. You'll see its   |
 |   shadow coming down after awhile so get away. When it lands a shockwave |
 |   will come out so be ready to jump when he lands to stay safe.          |
 |                                                                          |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 

 After the fight enjoy all of the ensuing scenes. Your Mission Complete screen
will come up here.

    
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Come on Puppy. Let's Go!' Bronze trophy here.

             KEYS: TWO     SECRET DOORS: TWO     LOST SOULS: NINE
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
        

 Lots of scenes to watch here. You'll meet the leader of The Order, Vergil,
who has a hard time convincing Dante of anything, including joining him in
what he is doing or even his own past. Eventually you'll head to a place
called "Paradise". Here you'll learn that Kat and The Order can put you INTO
Limbo. Wow...


 Once you enter Limbo you'll be able to see both Kat and Vergil. You'll also
have control once again. Head forward through the corridor to the open area
where you'll see a short scene. Destroy the red orb containers on the walls
here and note the doorway to the left. We can't do anything over there right
now (not in our current state, anyways) so let's head up the stairs. We can
go left or right up here. For the hell of it let's go left.
 
 Through the doorway you'll find a DIVINITY STATUE. Past that is a hole in the
wall to the right that has blue webbing over a door. We can't do anything with
that right now. We can come back to this once we beat this Mission, MISSION
TWO.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Once you have the Osiris, we can enter this door (well, after we do
 |  some double jumping and slashing. Inside is .: LOST SOUL 1/9 :.,
 |  along with a few red orb containers.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'

 
 Head into the next big room to see it transform before you eyes as Dante
remembers it. You'll then go check out the portrait here. Sparda. Enough
reminiscing, you have some enemies to kill!

 Take out the Stygian foes that show up. After killing off the first wave
you'll have to take on a new enemy that shows up: a "Death Knight". Sounds
intimidating! Despite the name the Death Knight isn't too tough. He's got a
shield to block your attacks and if you attack him while he's blocking too
much he'll bash you and follow up with a swipe. He can also do a medium
range stab and a close upward swipe. Get behind him or attack from the sides
to give yourself an opening.


 After taking him out, go check out the painting again. Dante will notice
the glow and put his hand on it, which turns the rebellion into some sort of
axe weapon. Looks like a new weapon to me!

 
   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   ARBITER
        
    A demonic axe whose swings are slow, but powerful.
    
    Arbiter is especially effective against shields.
    
        
   GROUND: JUDGEMENT: Triangle x3
   
           TREMOR: Circle
           
           
   AIR: AERIAL FLUSH: Triangle
   
        DROP: Circle
 
        
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'It's got to stay in the family' Bronze
         trophy here.
    
 
 Well well well... we have a giant axe. Another Death Knight comes out to
play as well. Time to see what this baby does against shields.

   REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE TO HOLD R2 TO USE ARBITER!
 
 The game will tell you how to use Arbiter so go ahead and try it out against
the Death Knight. It'll be MUCH easier to stun him with this weapon. After he
is dead you'll get some more Stygian enemies to kill, followed by some more
(two) Death Knights. Fun! Try to mix in Rebellion and Arbiter attacks on the
fly.

 Once you kill everyone, exit out of this room (there's only one exit) and
you'll hear laughing. The far wall will zoom away as well as you proceed. Be
sure to note the LOST SOUL here, across the pit. Don't bother trying to jump
over there as you can't (not with our current powers anyways). We'll need to
come back here after MISSION THREE:


       AFTER MISSION 3:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Once you have the BOOST ability you can easily cross this gap and
 |  kill .: LOST SOUL 2/9 :. Now if only everything was this easy.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'


 Oh well. Go ahead and drop down and look behind you for .: LOST SOUL 3/9 :..
There's also some RED ORB containers on the ceiling so be sure to destroy
them. I'm sure you've also noticed the RED CRYSTAL spot on the ground. We
need another weapon to break it. We'll get that weapon after MISSION SIX, so
we'll have to come back then.


       AFTER MISSION 6:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Once you have the ERYX, go ahead and jump up and charge up a STOMP
 |  ability. You'll destroy the ground here and gain an .: ARGENT KEY :..
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'


 Head onwards and drop into the pit. You'll be in the area leading back to
the main hall (that door on the left, remember?). On the way there look up
and to the left and you'll see a blue ring (Angel Lift point). We can't use
it yet, we'll need to wait until we beat this mission.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  You can now use the Angel Lift point to get up here. Head up to find
 |  a bunch of Devil Spiders and another .: LOST SOUL 4/9 :..
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'


 Head back there but once you do you'll be jumped by a Death Knight and
three Stygian enemies. Take them out and afterward you'll see a scene showing
Dante and Vergil as children fighting. They'll run into a door on the second
floor. That's our next destination.


 Head up there and the game will tell you to use ARBITER to break through
doors with red glowing cracks. Before we do that though, head through the
door on the left. You can find Devil Spiders in here along with some red
orb containers. Head back out to the red door and go past it now. You'll
see a glowing object through a doorway ahead. Go grab it to obtain a
.: COPPER KEY :.. There's a red orb container above the key as well.


 Head back and use the ARBITER to break through the door. Step through the
door and look above it to see a .: LOST SOUL 5/9 :.. Destroy it and follow
the corridors and you'll see another blue webbing door. Once again we must
wait until after this mission to get through it.


       AFTER MISSION 2:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use Osiris to get past the door. Kill the .: LOST SOUL 6/9 :.
 |  and the Devil Spiders as well as the red orb container.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'

 
 Keep following the kids out into the next wide open area. You'll have to
fight a bunch of Death Knights here (three), so make generous use of Arbiter.
Once you take them all out, you'll see another scene with the kids heading
under the nearby bed. Dante will look under it and find a small shield.
Holding it makes him remember...


 WHOA, what happened to us. Well, this area really looks cool. Head forward
and double jump the gaps you find until you reach a gap way too far to jump.
Here Rebellion will turn into something else entirely. Always convenient, huh?


   NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!
   ---------------------
   
   OPHION DEMON PULL
   
   Throw out the Ophion Whip to grapple enemies or objects and pull them
   toward Dante.
   
   
   GROUND AND AIR: DEMON PULL: R2 + Square
   
   
 Well, let's try it out. Pull the red point towards you and you'll make a
path. Continue on and pull the next point as well. Use that point and a door
to jump to a bigger area and pull the next demon grapple point you see. Keep
going like this until you get to a large area. Time to fight! The game will
teach you to pull enemies towards you here (R2 + Square, of course), so use it
to take out the Bathos and Stygian enemies. It really helps with the Bathos,
huh!?


 After the fight continue down the path and at the end use Arbiter to destroy
the rock you find. This will let loose a chain and end this segment.


 After a short scene you'll be in control again. Jump down the pit to
continue and break the three red orb containers you find. You'll note the
big Red Floor Crystal as well. We can get to that after MISSION SIX.


       AFTER MISSION 6:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use ERYX to smash the floor open. What shall we find!? Well, just
 |  one single lone .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :.. Damn. Oh well, one more.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'

 
 Let's enter the door here using our COPPER KEY.


 COPPER - SIMPLE ERADICATION
 ---------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:00
 
 
 A very easy combat challenge. We have one minute to kill SIX enemies.
This should be like taking candy from a baby. They are six Lesser Stygian
foes so you can just do your thing here and expect to win.


 Once you complete it, you will be given a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. for
your trouble and be taken back to the door in the "real world".

        
 END COPPER - SIMPLE ERADICATION
 -------------------------------  
    
 
 Continue on and head through the doorway. When the glass breaks stop and
look behind you for another .: LOST SOUL 7/9 :.. Destroy it and continue on.
In this hallway use Demon Pulls to get to the end where you have to break a
door with the Arbiter. You'll see another figment now (a woman, this time)
and you'll be in the first hallway. Go left really quick to kill some Devil
Spiders, then head back out to the big room.


 Here the place will be torn apart and you'll meet a new enemy: Shielded
Banthos! This things are just like normal Banthos but are shielded. You can
rip the shields off with a few Devil Pulls though. Take out the first one
then let them help you kill off the Stygians that show up.

 Once they are all dead continue on and through the Arbiter Door. You'll
run into a Divinity Statue you can use if you wish (I bought my first HEALTH
CROSS here), then head onward. You'll see another BLUE VINE door. We can
come back to this door in a little bit, just be patient.

 
 Once you get into the big room a ways you'll see a short scene. Another
portrait here with Eva. Makes sense. The demons won't leave us alone though,
so it's time to fight. You should get a note here about an advanced tip:


   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   BLOCK BREAKER!
   
   Ophion Demon Pull is useful for opening vulnerabilities on enemies who
   can block.
   
   
 A good tip. Note the light that comes out of enemies when they are
vulnerable! Kill off the Lesser Stygians and the Death Knight and soon the
circle under your mother's portrait will light up. Head over there to get
a new goodie:


   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   OSIRIS
        
    An angelic scythe, particularly useful for dealing with large crowds
    of enemies.
    
        
   GROUND: KARMA: Triangle x4
   
           PROP: Circle
           
           
   AIR: HANGER: Triangle x3
   
        RAKE: Circle
 
        
   FEED: Passive: Osiris becomes powered with Devil Energy when striking
         enemies, granting bonus damage when fully charged.
         
        
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Thing drives me crazy' Bronze trophy here.
    
    
 Time to try it out! Osiris is a grand weapon with crowds. Be sure to check
out it's PROP and RAKE abilities as well, as we will use those quite a bit
in aerial combat.

   REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE TO HOLD L2 TO USE OSIRIS!
 
 Take out the enemies and head back the way we came in. We can get through
the BLUE WEBBING on the left now. Use OSIRIS to hack through it and kill
the Devil Spiders you see. There's a .: LOST SOUL 8/9 :. above the entryway
here too, as well as some red orb containers.

 Head back now and use the Divinity Statue if you wish (Demon and Angel EVADES
are now available) and head back to the hub area.


(-NOTE-) If you haven't already, buy the FLUSH ability for ARBITER.


 The scenery will change again as you are shown another door you need to head
to. Follow the path and use Demon Pull when you have to and cut through some
Blue Webbing. Head down the path and note the gap to the right.

 We can't get over there in our current condition (and we definitely need to),
but if you have the FLUSH ability for the ARBITER we can at least kill the
.: LOST SOUL 9/9 :. over there. If not, don't worry. We need to replay this
level anyways, there's more over there than the Lost Soul. We can come back
to this after MISSION 3.


       AFTER MISSION 3:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use BOOST to cross the gap. Kill the LOST SOUL if you haven't yet
 |  already. Now, to the left is a COPPER DOOR. See below for the mission
 |  it contains.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'


 COPPER - STYLISH VICTORY
 ------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Gain an S rank within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 2:00
 
 
 Not much to say about this challenge. You'll be in a room of constantly
spawning Razor Demons. The game will do its best to make sure you have 3
of them attacking you at all times. Be sure to mix up your attacks. Variety
and NOT getting hit are the keys here! Mix up your attacks and weapons and
be sure to throw in some special hits here and there. Do all of this without
getting hit and you'll be ok.
 
 Once you are done, you'll be given a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. for your
troubles.


 END COPPER - STYLISH VICTORY
 ----------------------------
 

 Continue on killing any Devil Spiders and head into a library. Destroy the
three red orb containers in here. Head to the glowing blue spot on the
ground and Dante will pick up a blue rose... time for a trip again!


 Looks like we're back in that weird world (because Limbo isn't weird enough).
Head forward and at the end of this first piece of rubble we'll get another new
ability:    
    
    
   NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!
   ---------------------
   
   OPHION ANGEL LIFT
   
   Throw out the Ophion Whip to grapple enemies or objects, and lift Dante
   towards them.
   
   
   GROUND AND AIR: ANGEL LIFT: L2 + Square
    
    
 So, pretty much the opposite of Demon Pull. Got it. Continue down the path
and Angel Lift when you need to. You'll eventually be shown that enemies can
be used to Angel Lift to when needed. Use the first enemy then kill it and
continue. You'll use another enemy soon but you'll also have to fight a number
of Stygian and Bathos enemies. Kill them all (the game explains you can Angel
Lift to them, but I'm betting you knew that). 

 Before the next part the game will tell you to Angel Lift twice THEN Devil
Pull. Do so and continue on so you can break the rock with Arbiter at the end.
Doing so releases another chain and takes you back to the "real world".


 Back here you'll get another advanced tip:
    
    
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   PROP PARRY!
   
   Osiris Prop Attack is especially useful for parrying ranged projectiles
   back at the enemy.
   
   Hold L2 + Circle
    
    
 Ah, smart. Go ahead and try it out on the first Shielded Bathos. Follow
that up with a fight against more Stygian and Shielded Bathos enemies. Once
they fall the door past where the rose was open up. You'll see some rather
long scenes here as Dante remembers...


 Well, that was revealing. Continue on and use the three Angel points to
carry on. Kill the Devil Spiders you find. We'll go down a descent now back
to the hub area. It will change yet again. Use Demon and Angel pulls to
continue on: the path is very linear. Just keep going and when you get back
to the hallways and the glass breaks it is time to RUN. Carry on sticking to
the left and jumping the gaps (there's nothing down the side areas) until you
reach the end.


 You'll see several more scenes here as the chapter comes to a close.

(-NOTE-) This is by far the best Mission to get the 'Where does the
         time go?' Bronze Trophy on. Just replay it after you have the
         boost ability and go straight to the exit!
         
         
 You'll see quite a few scenes here as Dante and Vergil talk. Vergil will
quickly point out who the enemy is but soon you'll be "spotted". Grrr, I
guess further talking will have to wait as it's time to fight.

 We're up against some Shielded Bathos and Death Knights here. The game
will take a moment to talk to you about STYLE POINTS, but I won't repeat
that info here since we covered it up above pretty well. Once you defeat
the enemies here a new foe will come out of the walls: the RAVAGER.

 The Ravager has a chainsaw for an arm. Yeah. He can do long runs with it
pointed at you and a couple varieties of close slashes, but isn't too hard.
Just take him out like normal (easier than a shielded enemy). Afterwards
Kat will call for you.

 Before going collect all of the red orb containers in the area as there is
a lot of them. There's also a GREEN growth on the wall here above a door that
holds health for you. It should give you a new item prompt:


   GREEN ORB
   
   Immediately restores some of Dante's health.
   

 Nice. I'll point these out when I can. There's two of them here if you need
them. Also note the BLUE VINE door in this area. It's WAY out of reach: we'll
have to come back here once we beat MISSION 10.


       AFTER MISSION 10:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use AQUILA to open the door, then lift up. You'll be rewarded with
 |  some red orb containers and .: LOST SOUL 1/3 :.. Very nice!
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 

 Head into the archway and kill the Devil Spiders, then take a right. Kill
more and grab the .: SMALL VITAL STAR :. over here. Go back and to the left
now. There is a Divinity Statue over here and near that is a wall the Arbiter
can smash. Destroy it and go inside for some red orb containers and a
.: COPPER KEY :..


 Ok, NOW time to follow Kat. Once you do the city will make the path impassable
forcing you to turn back. Be sure to turn away from the gap and look to the
upper left for a .: LOST SOUL 2/3 :.. Head back to the beginning area now.


 You'll have to do another fight here. TONS of Lesser Stygians and a Ravager.
Quite fun! Take them out and the city will tell you to come closer while
opening up an Angel Lift. Go use it and STOP. Look out the hole and to the
left you'll see a platform. There is an ARGENT DOOR over there, but you likely
do not have a key for it. Just keep it in mind.

 Head down the corridor. A Ravager will come out, so kill him and then kill
the Devil Spiders at the end. This next part wants us to Angel Lift three
times, but we're only going to do it twice for a Lost Soul.


 Angel Lift once, then again but on the second one Double Jump to the right
and use an Air Evade to make sure you land on the ledge over here. Then kill
.: LOST SOUL 3/3 :.. Good. We can continue on from here, using Angel Lift and
Demon pull until Dante sees another blue rose. It's on top of the center
platform, but you have to time your jump to the swirling blocks right to get
to it.


 Once you do, you'll be transported to the other world again, as well as given
a new goodie:
 
 
   NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!
   ---------------------
   
   ANGEL BOOST
   
   Dante propels himself forwards, while airborne.
   
   
   AIR: BOOST: L2 + X
   
   
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Only kind of gift worth giving' Bronze trophy
         here.

   
 A VERY handy ability! The game tells you to use it here and you'll need to
to continue. Keep going as the game tells you to hold down L2 to extend boosts
and then to combine Angel Lifts and boosts. You'll have to get by a tricky gap
here but just remember you can double jump after each lift. You'll use it with
a Demon Pull as well but soon you can get to the end and break the rock to get
back to the "real world".


 You'll be back in the hub now and will face a new enemy: the PATHOS. They are
just like the Bathos except they have bows and arrows. No biggie. Before they
shoot you can tell as a line shows that they are about to hit you. Take them
out with the two Ravagers.


 Now that we have ANGEL BOOST, we can easily get to the ARGENT DOOR. Again,
you likely don't have a key by now so come back when you feel like it! The
door will be waiting for you.


 ARGENT - WHAT GOES AROUND
 -------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies only take damage from other enemy's attacks.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:10
 
 
 This is a fun one! You have to defeat two Lesser Stygians and two Bathos
foes. But they only die if hurt by their own attacks.

 The key here is of course the Bathos. They throw those grenades after all.
Stand by the Stygians until they are dead via grenades. Next, wait for more
grenades and DEMON PULL the Bathos into the explosion. Do that for both of
them and you'll be done!
 
 Once you are done, you'll be given a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. for your
troubles.


 END ARGENT - WHAT GOES AROUND
 -----------------------------
 

 Once they are dead go back to the huge gap we encountered earlier and you
should easily be able to cross it. After that you'll be shown some more
scenes at The Order HQ. We've got our targets. Raptor News Network and
Virility. Time to go hunting.

 Walk forward and take out the two lamp posts on the sides of the street.
You'll be stopped in the open area by a short scene as a camera has seen you
and recognized you. Great. We'll have to kill some enemies here as Kat hides
away.

 You'll meet a new enemy here: the Stygian. Well, I guess they are no longer
"lesser". They'll get a Ravager reinforcement as well. Still, nothing to worry
about. Take them all out and be sure to return to where you started from.

 From the street split, check out the covered walkway to the right to find
a .: LOST SOUL 1/8 :. on the southern end. There's a pocket of red souls on
the northern end. To continue we need to head straight as that's where the
camera is (short scene there as well), so naturally that means head down the
OTHER street.

         
 At the end of this street you can find a group of Devil Spiders to kill.
Get the easy souls and find the Demon Latch on the building on this street.
Pull the ledge out and lift yourself up to it. Jump to the next platform and
pull the far ledge out as well. Now before jumping look to your left and you
will see another .: LOST SOUL 2/8 :. above you and to the left. Take it out
and get back up here. Continue on and lift yourself to the far building, then
double jump to get closer to the camera. Demon pull it out to clear the way
forward.


 Head on and you'll see a scene showing the city street just... disappearing!
Ok... Kat will tell us to follow her. Not like we have much choice. Destroy
the motorcycle and INSTEAD of following her take the left path up the stairs
to a .: SMALL VITAL STAR :.. After grabbing it, turn around and look up.
You'll see another .: LOST SOUL 3/8 :. on the building's wall. Get it and
then follow Kat.


 Head down the stairs and to the right. Here a clown wall will close in
from the distance. We can't get through this wall until after we beat
MISSION SIX. We'll come back after that.


       AFTER MISSION 6:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use ERYX to smash the clown wall. He had it coming. You can find
 |  several red orb containers here and an .: ARGENT KEY :.. Nice.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 
 
 Go back and head straight now. Break the motorcycle and lamppost and head
onward. The city will speak and afterward will throw a Demonic Shards enemy
at you. Whip out Ebony & Ivory and shoot it to death. From here you can see
a key up in the distance but we can't get it yet, so head down the path on
your left.


 Down here you'll have to use a double jump + Angelic boost to get over the
long gap. Easy stuff. On the other side you'll be immediately greeted by a
new enemy: the SHIELDED PATHOS. Bah, I knew that was coming. You'll have to
kill around three of those here along with some Stygian and Ravager enemies.
Just watch out for their arrows. I like to focus on them first with some
Demon Pulls.

 Once they are dead destroy all the motorcycles and items in the area. You can
find some Demon Spiders by the fountain as well. Now we have a couple of Lost
Souls to set free. Stand up on the fountain (up on the very top) and look to
the right. On the building over there you should see .: LOST SOUL 4/8 :.. You
can either double jump/angelic boost over there to kill it or you can use the
Arbiter's Aerial Flush to kill it from range. Easy. After that look to the
south and you'll see an Angel Lift point.

 Use the lift point and once you do look to the right. You'll see yet another
.: LOST SOUL 5/8 :. on the nearby wall. Easy to take out. Be sure to head back
up here and continue through the doorway up here. You'll find SEVERAL (a total
of six) red soul containers up here but more importantly this path leads to
that key we saw earlier: the .: GOLD KEY :.. After grabbing it, head onward
to meet back up with Kat and see a scene.


 Quick, the walls are about to crush us! Jump over the gap with a double jump
and Angelic Boost. As you continue on stay in the middle of the street as a
small ledge will appear. Use it to double jump / Angelic Boost to safety.

 As you land you will be greeted by another new demon: the FROST KNIGHT.
The most important thing to note about this guy is that ONLY OSIRIS CAN HURT
HIM. This is why he's all blue, after all. He also does a ranged ice move that
can trap you, so be sure to avoid it. After killing one another one will be
joined by Stygian and Shielded Pathos enemies, with a Ravager later. Take
them all out to give yourself some peace and quite. If you need it there is
a health container on the walls here. Gather up all the red orb containers
on the streets as well. There's also a Divinity Statue here is you want to
use it for anything.


 After that head down the right pathway and use the Angel Lift to get up.
Once you do look down the street (away from where you came in at) and on the
right wall is a .: LOST SOUL 6/8 :.. Go kill it. Get back up once you're done
Move over to the Blue Vines entry way and go in. There's some red orb
containers here and a COPPER DOOR. If you have a key, use it and get ready
for a challenge!


 COPPER - SIMPLE TRAVERSAL
 -------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Reach the goal within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:00
 
 
 OK, we have a time race here. Note that you have to press select to begin,
so we can check out this area before we run it. I'll take you thought this on
a dry run before we do it.


 Head forward and straight, under the arch and double jump to the higher
ledge. Keep going and you'll see angel lift points. There are three in a row
here, so use them all to get to another platform.

 Run forward and use another lift point to get further. Take a right and
double jump over all the gaps until you come to some more angelic lifts.
There are FOUR in a row here and they lead to the FINISH LINE.


 Ok, pretty easy easy. When you feel comfortable with it, hit select and
run it. You should be able to do it with plenty of time left. Once you
complete it, you will be given a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. for your trouble
and be taken back to the door in the "real world".

        
 END COPPER - SIMPLE TRAVERSAL
 -----------------------------


 After that head out of this room and boost to the next platform. There is
a camera here for us to destroy so do so. From here we can also double jump
and boost / use a angel lift point to reach an ARGENT DOOR, but on your first
run through here you won't have the key for it...

(-NOTE-) Do this one when you come back for the key we missed earlier.
         AKA After MISSION SIX.

         

 ARGENT - FLAWLESS CONQUEST
 --------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies without taking any damage.
 
 TIME LIMIT: N/A
 
 
 This one is fun. A bit challenging, but fun. We have to beat all of the
enemies without taking ANY damage. Yeeha!

 We're facing TWO Frost Knights, ONE Ravager, and TWO Shielded Bathos.
 
 First, focus on the Frost Knights. Let them and the Bathos grenades hurt
everything else. Focus on dodging the ice slashes, grenades, and Ravager
Chainsaw rampages while hurting the Frost Knights.

 Once the Frost Knights fall take out the Bathos. Demon Pull them twice and
Hacker them to kill them fast. That leaves you with one Ravager. Easy stuff.
Once he is dead claim the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. for your troubles.

        
 END ARGENT - FLAWLESS CONQUEST
 ------------------------------


 Ok, let's head down the left path now. Earlier we couldn't do anything but
now Kat is over here. Follow her and you'll see a short scene. She'll make a
Demon Pull point for you on the stairs. Go ahead and use it. Keep using the
pull points until you are on the far building. Once you are, TURN AROUND and
find the .: LOST SOUL 7/8 :. behind you. Take him out. Get back up here once
you are done and use Arbiter to break open the door. Inside you'll find another
.: LOST SOUL 8/8 :., along with several Demon Spiders and three red orb
containers. Good haul.


 Go back outside and head to the camera now. Destroy it. You'll spawn a wave
of enemies after you do. Take out the two Shielded Pathos from where you are
and drop down to fight some Stygian enemies and a Ravager. Fun. Once they are
all dead the pathway will open up and we can continue.


 Make sure you've broken all the red orb items here and continue. Once you do
you'll see some cars ahead while the city says "CRUSH HIM". Yikes! Start to
dash forwards but keep your eyes open for an angel lift point you can use.
After the lift stay roughly in the middle of the screen and keep dashing until
you have to go right. The city will say "FALL" here but you can use another
angel lift point to continue. Head into the archway on the right.


 Here, boost yourself to the opposite far corner and head up the stairs there.
Head forward and you'll drop down. Boost forward and shoot up the Demonic
Shard enemy you find before it crashes into you. Take the right corner and
keep running and Dante will automatically make his way into the church below.


 Here you'll have to face some enemies. This includes two FROST KNIGHTS
(remember OSIRIS only) followed by Shielded Pathos and Ravagers. Once you
defeat them a new enemy called the TYRANT will show up. This fat guy can
charge at you, do a jumping shockwave attack and can quickly turn around and
nail you with his fists. There's also two health orb containers in this area
if you need them. Keep on attacking the Tyrant after his charges and moves
and he'll fall in no time.


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Flock off, feather-face!' Bronze trophy here.


 After that Kat will tell you she's found a way out via the church window in
the distance. Time to get there. You're about to do a lot of double jumping and
air dashing, so get ready! Run forward and double jump forward. Next dash to
the ground to the right, followed by the ground to the left. Now head to the
right platform. DO NOT stick to the right wall here but double jump / dash
towards the middle of the next platform (note that it's missing some area on
its right side). One more jump to the left followed by four consecutive angel
lifts and you're home free!


 You'll see a cool news report afterwards and will be taken to the Mission
Complete screen after that.

 Watch the scenes as Kat and Dante visit the Virility Facility. Hey, that
rhymed huh? Anywaaaay... the Secret Ingredient is thought to be a Succubus
but we'll have to go through Limbo to reach it.

 Once you have control follow Kat. Just stick with her since we can't do
anything else. There's a few alternate paths but just stick with her and
watch all the short scenes until you are in Limbo again.


 Here we have a left path and a right path. It's better to go left here for
now (you'll see why). Use Demon pull to continue and tear away a big black
mass, then Angel Lift. Once you do two Angel Lifts, STOP and look up and to
the left. Another Angel Lift! Take it and follow the path with a boost and
Angel Lift to a .: LOST SOUL 1/6 :.. From here you can boost over to the wide
area ahead.

(-NOTE-) If you didn't take this path you would have got to the same area, but
         you would have used three demon pulls to do it.
       
 You'll kill some Stygian and Shielded Pathos enemies here. Take them out and
then kill the Devil Spiders. We have another choice here: go straight or take
the path to the right. We're going to go right as it has some goodies the
straight path doesn't have. We'll end up in the same place though, so don't
worry: it really isn't much of a "choice".
 
 
 Pull the black gunk away and move to the next platform. This path actually
leads back to the beginning, if you head towards the right (which is why we
picked left earlier). Angel Lift to the left though and you'll hit a bigger
area. There's Devil Spiders here and some red orb containers. From here pull
the nearby box and continue. You'll see an Angel Lift followed by a Devil
Pull coming up: be careful and be sure to BOOST to the container after you do
the Devil Pull.


 You'll be on another big piece of land now. Here you'll meet a new enemy:
the HELL KNIGHT. This guy is the opposite of the Frost Knight, ONLY ARBITER
CAN KILL HIM. He's got close range slashes and can plunge his sword into the
ground and make an area turn to lava, so be sure to get out when he does this.
Take him down with Arbiter. You'll have to fight another one with Stygian and
Shielded Pathos enemies. Near the end you'll even take on a Tyrant. Take them
all out with style!


 Once you're done heal up with the health containers and take a moment and
look out over the abyss. You should see an Angel Lift in the distance. Boost
over there and use it with another one to land near .: LOST SOUL 2/6 :.. Take
it out and return back to where you came from. We're not done yet though.
On the right wall should be some boxes you can jump on top of with a double
jump. Follow this semi-hidden path around and down to the area behind the
fence for a .: COPPER KEY :. and a red orb container. Sweet!


 OK, now let's continue. We'll use that key soon. Head into the hallway and
you'll see a Divinity Statue. Use it if you wish and climb the boxes nearby.
Boost over to the boxes further away and climb those and you'll see a platform
to your left. Boost over there for some red orb containers and a COPPER DOOR.
Let's put that key to use!
       

 COPPER - DEMONIC CONFLICT
 --------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies only take damage from Demon Weapons.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:20
 
 
 A fairly easy challenge. Note that enemies only take damage from demon
weapons, aka the ARBITER (it's all we have right now), so make good use of
it. The flying enemies here are Shielded Bathos, so watch out for their
grenades. The other foes are Death Knights, but since we're using the Arbiter
this should be a cinch. Keep spamming Judgement and Trinity Smash and you'll
have this beat in no time.

 Once you win collect your .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :.. If you're doing a
brand new game and following the guide this is your FOURTH one so you should
get a HEALTH CROSS out of this as well. Wheee! Back to the real world.

        
 END COPPER - DEMONIC CONFLICT
 -----------------------------


 Continue on and a Demonic Shards enemy will pop out. Shoot it to death and
continue up the stacks of soft drinks. You'll soon be shown where you need to
go in a small scene. Kill the cherubs that attack you and Demon Pull your way
to continue. As soon as you do check out the RIGHT path for .: LOST SOUL 3/6 :.
and destroy it. 

         
 We have some choices on what to do in here, and there's some obvious stuff
that we can't do right now, but for now let's take the left path. Follow it
to a long piece of rubble and kill the Pathos you find, then Angel Lift to      
continue. After that STOP and turn around. Boost over to the higher platform
to the right. Once you do that STOP and turn around again. Look to your upper
left and you'll see an Angel Lift. Double jump and grab it. There's a RED
CRYSTAL door nearby but don't jump over there since we can't do anything
with it yet. We'll have to come back after MISSION SIX.


       AFTER MISSION 6:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use ERYX to smash the door down. Inside you'll be disappointed as
 |  all there is there is Demon Spiders and a bunch of Red Orb containers.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 

 Instead boost over to the platform in the other direction and follow the
path using an Angel Lift (and BOOST after the Angel Lift) to find an
.: ARGENT KEY :..That's all the keys in this level.


 Head back to the Red Crystal Door and drop down to the path underneath it.
Continue on (to the left) and Demon Pull the spot you see (the path here
leading off to the right connects back to where we came from so no need to
go that way). Head up two flights of floors and go forward to the wide area.
You'll see a Hell Knight pop up but so will an Advanced Tip:        
 

   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   CAN'T TOUCH THIS!
   
   Demon Mode renders Dante immune to the Hell Knight's Ground Inferno.
   
   
 Interesting. We can totally use that knowledge, as we have to use Demon
weaspons to kill the Hell Knights anyways!

 A Hell Knight and a Frost Knight will team up here so use your special weapons
to take them out and kill the Demon Spiders afterward. From the area they
showed up in, head to the right and at the end is a .: LOST SOUL 4/6 :.. Kill
it and head back to the Hell/Frost Knight area. Go LEFT this time and climb the
boxes you see to get up to another level. Follow this platform to the middle
area and look for another .: LOST SOUL 5/6 :. and kill him as well.


(-NOTE-) There's a set of Angel Lifts / Demon Pulls by the fourth Lost Soul
         but that path just leads back to the Red Crystal door. Don't bother
         with it for now.
         
         
 Up on the top level you can also spy a BLUE VINE DOOR in the distance, out
over the abyss. We can't get to it now, but we can after MISSION TEN. We
will have to come back then...


       AFTER MISSION 10:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use Aquila to open the Blue Vine door. Boost over there and use the
 |  launch points to get up to a higher platform. From here survey the
 |  area around you and you'll see .: LOST SOUL 6/6 :.. Head over there
 |  and kill him. There's another platform you can lift to that leads to
 |  some spiders but we got the big prize already!
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
        
           
 Whew, with all that exploring done let's head past where the Hell and Frost
Knights came from. Follow the corridors until you get to a wide open room
where we'll get into a fight! You'll start out with a TON of Stygian foes
and a Ravager. Soon a Frost Knight will show up along with an advanced tip: 
         
         
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   FRIENDLY FIRE!
   
   Many enemies affect each other with their attacks. This can often be
   used to Dante's advantage.
   
   
 You've likely already seen this happen before, like with the Bathos grenades
and such. Not much of a tip, but keep it in mind. You'll face another Hell
Knight / Frost Knight combo here so take them out. Limbo will tell you to
Fuck Off and THREE DEMON SHARDS will appear. Shoot like crazy! You'll likely
get hit once if you don't have Ebony & Ivory leveled up.

 Let's keep going. We'll come to a split in the path but like most splits
this isn't much of a choice. Go STRAIGHT for now. Keep your eyes open for
red orb containers via barrels and packets on the ceiling. This path leads
to a Death Knight fight but it's easy enough. Keep going past the hallway
opening up to a FOUR WAY SPLIT. The path to the RIGHT is where we came from
though, so there's really only TWO NEW PATHS here.


 Here head left to the BLUE VINE door. Break it open and grab all the red
orb containers and .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :.. The path nearby is a dead end.
Now just go back and take the one path we didn't take with the virility
puddles (don't step in them!). Follow this path and kill the Death Knight we
come across. Keep your eyes open for a RED DOOR on the left we can break and
enter. Gather up the red orb containers and you'll find an ARGENT DOOR. Well,
we DO have a key. Let's do this...


 ARGENT - DISPLACED SKIRMISH
 ---------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies only take damage from within the active zones.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:50
 
 
 GAH! This one is hard!
 
 You'll be in a circular arena with FIVE Stygian and TWO Ravagers. You have
to kill them all. But here's the kicker: you can only do it in the GREEN
CIRCLES! These circles shrink over time and will reappear in other places.

 This is hard but here's some tips:
 
 o Use DEMON PULL to get enemies in the circles.
 
 o Use ANGEL LIFT if the enemies are in the circles and you aren't.
 
 o You can PUSH enemies into the circles with your attacks.
 
 o Let the Ravagers chase you with their chainsaw run into the circles. In
   the meantime pull the Stygians in. Try to attack groups of enemies in the
   circles with Osiris.
   

 This is a tough challenge but with some practice you can do it. It took me
three tries until I got it, but practice makes perfect! Once you win collect
your .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :.. Congrats on a hard fought victory!

        
 END ARGENT - DISPLACED SKIRMISH
 -------------------------------
         
         
 Ok, let's keep going past the red door. You'll run into a Ravager on your
way but keep going. There's a Divinity Statue on the way as well. Keep going
and you'll see some truly disgusting sites. Ugh. We're in the tasting room
now I suppose. Before we can follow Kat though, we'll be in for a fight!


 We'll have to deal with a few waves of enemies here. The big thing to note
here is the arena. Pools of Virility will show up in certain places, so stay
out of them. Kill off the first wave of Stygians then deal with the second,
who have a Hell Knight with them (Note that you can knock enemies up and
down into the middle area to instantly kill them). After that wave you'll be
up against two Tyrant enemies. Dodge there attacks and don't get too greedy!
You do NOT want to be ganged up on here, so try to separate them if you can.
Divide and conquer. Yada yada. Once they are dead grab the health orbs and
red orb containers then follow Kat.

 That's actually the end of the Mission. How did you do?

 Watch the scenes and Dante will fall down. Once you have control IMMEDIATELY
turn around and you'll see a .: COPPER KEY :.. Jump down and collect it.
Off to a good start.


 We are being timed down here. TWO MINUTES isn't a long time. There is a
trophy for killing all the enemies though. Kill or ignore the Devil Spiders
you see and boost to the foe. Kill or ignore him and keep going using the
platform on the right to two more foes. Take them out and continue. We'll
have to kill two PATHOS and STYGIAN enemies next.

 Once they are dead use Demon Pull and Angel Lift / Boost to continue. When
you get to solid ground again TURN AROUND and find the .: LOST SOUL 1/2 :. to
the upper right. Continue on and cross the gap, killing the Stygian. Keep on
going killing the Stygians and following any Angel Lifts, boosting when you
can until you are at the end. Here you need to DEVIL PULL a grate on the left
(it can be hard to see).


 This entire area can be tough to do while killing all the enemies, but you
should definitely aim to do it. If you fail you'll just end up restarting, but
on your second run you won't have to worry about the Key or Lost Soul, so you
will just be even faster! 
        
          
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'A man with guts and honor' Bronze trophy here.
          
          
 Continue on and you'll see a short scene as Dante drops down. Once you have
control look to your LEFT for .: LOST SOUL 2/2 :. and destroy it. Continue on
for a Divinity Statue as well. Before continuing straight down the path be
sure to check out the left wall as there is another platform over there you
can air dash to. Here nab the red orb container and go check out the COPPER
DOOR. Time for a challenge!


 COPPER - RAPID DESCENT
 ----------------------

 OBJECTIVE: Reach all of the goals within the time limit.
            
 TIME LIMIT: 1:20


 This is an interesting challenge. We're heading DOWN collecting goals as
fast as we can. We have 20 to collect before all is said and done. We can
of course do a dry run before we go, so take some time to find out where all
the goals are.

 QUICKLY start and collect the goals as you go down. The first five are
extremely easy: grab 1 and look to the right for 2, then follow them down.
You should have 5 by the time you hit the big area down below.

 From here we can do a number of things. What *I* recommend doing is jumping
straight off to the left, past the closest goal to the one after that. Next,
TURN AROUND and ANGEL LIFT your way up for number 7, and then again to the
left for number 8. From here BOOST your way straight ahead for 9 and boost
again to the platform for 10.


 HALFWAY DONE. Now, after 10 head to the left and double jump / boost out
towards the abyss while HOLDING L2. Aim for the goal on the far right side,
that should be straight in front of you for 11. Turn left quickly for 12 and
air boost ahead for 13. From here turn to the right and get the one in the
middle (careful jumping!) for 14 and then the one further down to the left
for 15! FIVE MORE TO GO.


 Now get another one in the middle for 16, then to the far right up on a box
for 17. Turn around and continue down for the last three, leading down to
the concrete. Congrats! I'm able to do this with 20 seconds left, so you
should have plenty of time.


 Once you win you will be awarded with a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :..
Good job on your descent!


 END COPPER - RAPID DESCENT

 Once you're back to the main area head forwards to enter the boss arena.
Dante and the "Secret Ingredient" will trade jabs at each other until Dante
goads the disgusting creature into attacking!

 |                                                                          |
 |   You start out in the middle platform once the fight begins, but there  |
 |   are also platforms to both your left and your right. You can travel to |
 |   these platforms at any time by using the Lift Points to get between    |
 |   them. In fact, to beat the boss you'll HAVE to travel to the side      |
 |   platforms. The boss actually has THREE LIFE BARS that you will need to |
 |   deplete before you can kill it. Once you take off the first life bar   |
 |   you'll see a short scene. The boss will then be stunned and you'll     |
 |   need to travel to one of the two side platforms (or you may be on one  |
 |   of them already) and use DEVIL PULL to pull off one of its hoses.      |
 |   After that quickly move off the platform to avoid a counterattack      |
 |   which destroys the platform. The fight will resume again and you'll    |
 |   have to take off another life bar. Once you do that you'll need to     |
 |   travel to the other remaining side platform and pull off another hose  |
 |   (and then quickly move off of it, of course). Once that is done you'll |
 |   be working on the last life bar but you'll also be stuck on the        |
 |   initial platform. Take him out and pull one last Devil Point.          |
 |                                                                          |
 |   As far as an attack strategy goes, it's best to get to know its        |
 |   attacks below and learn when to evade. Some of the attacks are quick   |
 |   close-range area attacks, which makes prolonged attacks by you a       |
 |   dangerous proposition, so think about a hit and run strategy and       |
 |   backing off after 3-5 good hits. You can attack and damage the         |
 |   Succubus by attacking its arms and head.                               |
 |                                                                          |
 |   After the last Devil Pull try to leave the area. As you leave it will  |
 |   come back for one last hurrah. Here move to the right platform in the  |
 |   distance when you can and use a Devil Pull. Angel Lift and Devil Pull  |
 |   it until you get it to a point where it is hanging on for dear life.   |
 |   From here simply attack its hands to end the fight. Nice, huh?         |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Claw Swipe: A fairly basic claw swipe. The boss will use one of its    |
 |   hands to swipe at you. This can cover quite a bit of range. Evade      |
 |   towards the swipe to dodge it, then keep attacking. You can            |
 |   alternately just jump over the swipe as well.                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Palm Slam: Another very basic attack that the boss will use when       |
 |   you're too close. He will pick up a hand and slam it down. Be sure     |
 |   to roll away!                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Double-Palm Slam: The ugly beast rears back and brings both of its     |
 |   fists down. You should have more time to evade this than the regular   |
 |   palm slam.                                                             |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Yell/Scream: The beast does a yell attack which hits you and knocks    |
 |   you back a ways. This is a close to mid-range attack and is designed   |
 |   to get you away.                                                       |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Bile Attack: The beast sprays corrosive bile all over the platform you |
 |   are on. When it does this you can double jump in the air and attack to |
 |   wait it out (and take minimum damage) or you can move to another       |
 |   platform to outright avoid damage. If you do choose to move, the boss  |
 |   will follow you. You'll know this attack is coming when the boss looks |
 |   like it is about to hurl.                                              |
 |                                                                          |

 After the fight view the scenes. Hmmm, Mundus doesn't seem too happy. Good.
 
 
 You'll also have unlocked a new weapon:
 
 
   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   ERYX
        
    Powerful Gauntlets, useful for dealing massive damage to a single
    target. Each attack can be charged for greater effect.
    
        
   GROUND: BRAWLER: Triangle x3
   
           SLAM: Circle
           
           
   AIR: SHOWDOWN: Triangle
   
        STOMP: Circle
 
        
   CHARGE: All Eryx attacks gain damage or effect when charged up by
           holding the button down.
         
        
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'This baby sure can pack a punch' Bronze
         trophy here.
         
         
(-NOTE-) Now that you have ERYX you can go back and FULLY COMPLETE
         Missions ONE, TWO and FOUR. Go ahead and do so now, if you wish.

 More info about Kat's backstory. Fun. Sounds like she's had it rough. We'll
meet up with Vergil and check out the Raptor News tower. Looks like that main
news guy is a demon. Figures. Time to head into Limbo.


 When you gain control check out the graphics. Everything is upside down and
raining? Cool. Continue on and the game will teach you how to equip other
weapons. Hit right to equip ENYX, then BASH the door. Note that you can
charge EVERY attack with Enyx. Cool. Past that we'll learn how to stomp
(X, R2 + Circle). We'll crash through the bridge. Continue on and punch the
next crystal, the boost over to the van, Angel Lift and break through the
crystal.


 Here we'll have to fight two Death Knights. May as well try out your fists
like the game tells you to. Try out charge attacks as well. Once you've beat
them continue on and break the next crystal. You'll fight two more Death
Knights here, a Hell Knight and some Stygian enemies before a Tyrant pops
out and gives you an advanced tip: 

 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   TYRANT LAUNCHER!
   
   A fully charged Eryx Uppercut can interrupt a Tyrant and launch him
   into the air.
   
   Hold R2 + Circle, wait until full charge is reached, then release.
   
   
 May as well try it ou.. holy crap that's effective. And cool looking.
Let's do more of that! Anyways, kick his ass and break the next crystal
to keep going. You'll see the prison here. There's a couple of red orb
containers up behind you. Grab them and lift up to the left. Keep using
lift and pull to continue (be fast on that pull after the lift) and you'll
come to some Demon Spiders and another Red Crystal.

 Before breaking the crystal, look to your left. Boost over there to find
a .: LOST SOUL 1/8 :. to free, then go back and break the crystal. You'll
fall down and hear Bob Barbas making a speech. Man this place sucks.


 Here we have to Angel Lift to the Boost Ring, and press X to boost out of
it. Try it out. Useful. Do it again to the left and then Angel Lift to the
point beyond. You'll see a BLUE VINE DOOR to the right, but we can't get
to it yet. We'll have to come back after MISSION TEN.


       AFTER MISSION 10:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Use Aquila to open the Blue Vine door. Boost over there and use the
 |  launch points to get into the building. Inside are several red orb
 |  containers and a .: COPPER KEY :.. Very nice.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'

 
 Head down a bit and look to the left. You should see a small ledge you
can jump to. Get on it and Demon Pull the crate you see. Jump over to that
and BEFORE bashing the Red Crystal look to the left and double jump/boost
over to the ledge here. There is some red orb containers here, a GOLD DOOR,
and a .: LOST SOUL 2/8 :.. Kill it and enter the Gold Door for a challenge.
 

 GOLD - DIVERGENT SLAUGHTER
 --------------------------

 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies.
 
            Do not use the same attack twice.
            
 TIME LIMIT: N/A


 Another interesting challenge. You can't use the same move twice.

 You have to kill TWO Ravagers and TWO Stygians here. The biggest tip I
can give you is to try and KNOCK THEM OFF this platform. You can often kill
one off with LAUNCH alone. Try to get another one with UPPERCUT.

 From there use all of your main attacks, then switch to your forward x2
attacks. That right there should do it, but you also have special attacks
and overdrive to call upon, should you need them. Don't forget to also
switch between Arbiter and Eryx.


 Once you win you will be awarded with a .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :..
This happened to be my 8th one so another Health Cross for me. Yea!


 END GOLD - DIVERGENT SLAUGHTER
 ------------------------------

 
 Head back to the Red Crystal boxcar and punch it. You should make a path
forward and find a new item thanks to it! Oooo!


   NEW ITEM FOUND!
   ---------------
   
   LARGE VITAL STAR
   
   Restores all of Dante's Health.
   
   During gameplay, press start and select 'Items' to use Large Vital
   Stars.
   
   
 Very nice. Head back and take the other path to the right of the boxcar
and you'll have to kill some Shielded Bathos. Take them out and continue.
Once Dante spies the tower STOP and look to your upper right. You can double
jump/boost to an Angel Lift point and get to a .: LOST SOUL 3/8 :. this way.
Head back down once you kill him.

 Use the boost point further on and check out the weird rat thing. Ugh.
There's a Divinity Statue to the right up here. Across of it in the
distance is an Angel Lift. Boost over there and follow the path. This room
has an .: ARGENT KEY :., red orb containers, and Devil Spiders on the
ceiling. Yep, shoot them down.

 Head back and continue on. You'll come to a big rec-room of sorts where
Dante laments the poor bastards here before we get into a fight. This fight
is mostly Stygians but there are Frost and Hell Knights thrown in to keep it
interesting. A lift point will open up afterward.

 Continue on and you'll see the rat again. It'll run off but another
creature (kinda looks like a rat/porcupine) will come out. This is a RAGE.
It has a one-two swipe combo, a regular swipe, a jump attack, and an attack
where it can cast needles in the sky to have them home in on you in a few
seconds. Take it out and another one will show up. This one will be ENRAGED
(oh, I get it!) at the first one's death and will gain the ability to shrug
off most of your attacks and do a spinning charge move.

 Take him out and gather up the health / red orb containers. Jump through the
hole on the left and TURN AROUND once you do for .: LOST SOUL 4/8 :.. Continue
on to see some black rats and a red crystal we have to punch. Out here take
the RIGHT path first and follow it around to another .: LOST SOUL 5/8 :. and
some red orb containers. Go back and head up. The floor will break so you'll
have to jump.


 Up here you'll face a Hell Knight and a couple of Shielded Pathos. Take
them out and grab the red orb containers. Go angel lift to continue, follow
the path, and angel lift again. After that second one TURN AROUND and boost
over to the red orb containers. Gather them up and boost again to another
one. Grab it too and boost once more to find a .: LOST SOUL 6/8 :.. Well,
he was well hidden, huh?

 Head back and continue heading up to get to that red crystal. Smash down
with Eryx and that will open up the path. You'll see another red crystal but
BEFORE smashing it check the room for a .: LOST SOUL 7/8 :.. THEN smash it.
There is a COPPER DOOR down here you can check out but you'll also have to
kill two Rage enemies.


 COPPER - ANGELIC WARFARE
 ------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies only take damage from Angel Weapons.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:20
 
 
 This is like the opposite of the Demonic Warfare. At this point in the
game this challenge just means "Only use Osiris!". Done. I love Osiris.

 We are facing 10 Stygian enemies, so this should be a piece of cake.
You could probably just spam basic moves in win, but be stylish with Prop,
Double Up and Raze. And anything else you can do! :)

 Once you win the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. will be yours! Congrats!

        
 END COPPER - ANGELIC WARFARE
 ----------------------------  


 You MAY not have a Copper Key on you but we can fix that really quickly.
Head to the right wall and go Angel Lift yourself up to continue. STOP and
turn around. Boost over there for a .: COPPER KEY :., just what we need for
that door. How very timely.


 Let's continue on now (door or no door!). You'll run into a Divinity
Statue. Turn around and find the .: LOST SOUL 8/8 :. nearby and the red orb
containers. Continue on with a lift and head out on the platforms. You'll see
a scene here and afterwards you'll see an old man being hassled.

 Head over there with an Angel Lift to the right. Follow the cars and use the
Boost Point to get over there. You'll meet the new enemies: HARPIES. These
things seem to be passive, from what I've experienced. Every once in awhile
they tried to dive bomb me. They resist grab attacks so try to shoot them and
THEN grab them.


 Talk to the old man afterwar HOLY CRAP WHERE'S YOUR FACE?! I mean, um.. hey,
what's up? Watch the scenes and soon the chapter will end.

 Nothing in the world is free, it seems. We gotta help this guy get his
eye back. He'll call down some Harpies on top of him so we can follow them
back.

 Jump down there and the Harpies will flee. Follow them up and check the
room for red orb containers. Head up again and then demon pull the point you
find. Try to jump on it and they'll pull it back! Bastards! Angel Lift up to
the left and break the Red Crystal wall here. Note the BLUE VINE WALL on the
right. Don't worry about it for now, we will come back to it in this very
same mission.

 
 Head forward and break this wall too for a .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :. and
some red orb containers. Head back and to the left pull the demon point, then
use the lift. You'll shoot forward. Keep going to see a train (a demon train,
perhaps!?). Out here head to the LEFT first and find a .: LOST SOUL 1/5 :.
on the left wall. Head down the tracks now and Limbo will tell you to come
closer again. I DON'T TRUST YOU, LIMBO!


 You shouldn't either! The Demon Train will be back. What you want to do here
is to stick to whatever wall has the GREEN LIGHTS as the Demon Train comes
barreling down the tracks. You'll need to do this twice before you are safe.
Use the lift point to get to a station. Here you'll have to fight a Hell
Knight and some Stygians, followed by a Frost Knight and some Stygians. Fun.
The Demon Train will continue to run on the ceiling as you fight, so try and
smack the enemies up into it for quick kills, if you can. Nab the health orbs
on the wall if you need them.


 We have TWO path options here. Head to the TUNNEL with the RED LIGHTS first.
This leads to a dead end straight ahead but there's an open gate on the right.
Follow it and destroy the Blue Vine door. This hallway is FULL of red orb
containers and at the end is an .: ARGENT KEY :.. Head back now and take the
other path through the wall.

 Here you'll need to shoot a Demonic Shard enemy to death and head down. Kill
another one and nab the red orbs, then break through the red crystal wall.
There is a Divinity Statue here and to the left of it jump up for more red
orbs. Continue on and enter the upper RIGHT room for red orbs and another
.: LOST SOUL 2/5 :.. From there head back down and enter the LEFT room, then
break the Arbiter door you find. There is an ARGENT ROOM here. Let's enter!


 ARGENT - MODERATE TRAVERSAL
 ---------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Reach the goal within the time limit.
 
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:30
 
 
 Oh, another race course. Time to go on a dry run (don't you love that we
can do dry runs?!).

 Head to the left (Boost!) and use the two Angel Lifts you find. Drop down from
there and use the Demon Pull. On this long stretch be sure to boost to cover
more ground. Angel lift when you can and BOOST, then Angel Lift again and
boost, then again.


 This next part is tricky. You have to LIFT twice, then PULL. AFTER you pull,
do a DOUBLE JUMP in the air and then BOOST while HOLDING L2 to float further.
Took me awhile to get that! From here hit the Angel Lift and boost, then do
a pull to get on solid ground. Double Jump / Boost to the platform on the
right.


 This part is tricky, but there's a trick to it. Angel lift the JUMP, then
PULL, then JUMP, then LIFT, then JUMP, then PULL, then JUMP, then LIFT, then
Jump. See what you do here? Just jump every time you need to do something.
This makes this part SO much easier. From here just cross the finish line.

 Once you've done a dry run and are comfortable do the live version! You
can do it! You've got this!

 Once you win the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. will be yours! Congrats!

        
 END ARGENT - MODERATE TRAVERSAL
 -------------------------------


 Let's continue on. You'll run into three Demonic Shard enemies as you
continue. Kill them and be sure to nab the red orb containers on the
ceiling. Continue on to the central area. Once you have control again look
for the sign that says PLATFORM 1 and Angel Lift up to it. There's a health
orb up here and some Demonic Shards. Kill them and nab the red orb containers
and the .: LOST SOUL 3/5 :. at the end, then head back.


 Now look for PLATFORM 2 and Angel Lift up to it. More red orb containers
and another Demonic Shard. Kill it and save the .: LOST SOUL 4/5 :.. Head
back. Go ahead and pull out the eye now. You'll then be ambushed by the
Harpies (four, at least) who are reinforced by Shielded Bathos.


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'He's a demon too' Bronze trophy here.
         

 Use your guns to hurt the Harpies and pull them in for combos when you can.
This area is small with no ground enemies, so focus on the Bathos as well
once you can since they are easy to kill. Take them all out and the path will
open. Look for the WAYOUT sign. This leads back up to the hallway we were in
before, meaning you can ignore the side exits and visit the Divinity Statue
if you want.


 Head back up the way we came. Destroy a Demonic Shard and in the station
area kill two Rage enemies. Keep backtracking and on the tracks you'll face
Stygian enemies and Demonic Shards. EASY. Keep going and soon you'll face
two Death Knights and a Tyrant. Take out the Death Knights first with your
Demon Weapons to focus on the Tyrant. He's much easier one on one. After
that the way forward will clear.

 Before you go on, use the Angel Lift and Boost over to the BLUE VINE door.
Attack it in the air. This will need to be repeated several times but you
can get the door open like this.

 Inside is a .: LOST SOUL 5/5 :. and further in a COPPER DOOR.


 COPPER - A TASTE OF HEAVEN
 --------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies and Dante die in one hit.
 
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:20
 
 
 Not too much to say here. Kill or be killed. You have 11 enemies to
defeat and eight of them are Death Knights. This means use Eryx or the
Arbiter. The enemies you really have to watch out for are the three
Shielded Pathos. Dodge their arrows and any charge attacks and you'll do
ok.

 Note that you can also use Demon Pull to stagger/expose the enemies and
follow up with Ebony & Ivory, if you wished.
 

 Once you win the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. will be yours! Congrats!

        
 END COPPER - A TASTE OF HEAVEN
 ------------------------------
 
 
 Keep heading back and soon you'll be back to the old man. Watch the scenes
here as the mission comes to a close.

 Watch the scenes here as Phineas pretty much clears the way to the tower,
undoing what the train did. Continue down the path and break down the Arbiter
door at the end. Continue on inside the building shooting Demon Spiders and
getting the red orbs until you see the .: LOST SOUL 1/2 :. to the left,
behind the Blue Vine door. Easy to get to. Grab the red orbs too.

 Continue on and Phineas will meet up with you and tell you a quick story.
Sounds like a lot of history. We should definitely go check out this Assiel
statue though. To get down there we need to do some double jump / boosts.
Be sure to hold down L2 here so you can float to your targets. Keep heading
down the same way until you can boost on over to the wing.

 Here you'll meet a WITCH. This is a new enemy. The first thing to notice is
the force field, which will stop your bullets. To attack she prefers to send
homing swords at you but if you get up close she can use earth magic to make
the ground jut up at your feet and knock you back. Get in and get off a quick
combo and get out, then get in again after the counter-attack. She can also
do the earth attack at range, as well. You can also knock her off the edges
here if you wish. There's some Devil Spiders in the area as well.


 Watch the scene afterward and you'll see a symbol up above you. Angel Lift
up twice, then do a Pull. Double Jump and dash after the pull and keep up
with the Lifting until you are on firm ground. Keep following the path and
use the Angel Boost once you can to continue.

 You'll see a scene and will be transported to the odd world once again.
Continue forward (it's really easy this time) and destroy this last block.
Watch the scenes that follow. Very nice.


   NEW ABILITY UNLOCKED!
   ---------------------
   
   DEVIL TRIGGER
   
   A manifestation of Dante's true power, Devil Trigger unleashed sends the
   world into chaos, throwing surrounding enemies helplessly into the air.
   
   
   GROUND AND AIR: Enable/Disable DEVIL TRIGGER: L3 + R3


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'You are not a Human, are you?' Bronze trophy here.


(-NOTE-) The shop will start selling DEVIL TRIGGER CROSSES, which of course
         increase your Devil Trigger bar.


 Afterward you'll get a tutorial about Devil Trigger, which I won't go into
since we talked about it earlier. Use it here and use Angel Left to get up
in the air with the enemies and take them out.


 Afterward we need to meet back up with Phineas. Use the lift in the distance
and kill the Spiders you find. Head further on and you'll be in a open area.
This room will throw two Rage enemies at you, followed by a couple of Witches
and Stygian enemies. Before killing the Rages though, check the note below:


       SPECIAL!:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Getting this key is a PAIN. It's up on the catwalk above us, but
 | that is WAY too high to reach. We can get to it though, if we are
 | smart. First we NEED the LEAP ability. If you haven't bought it yet
 | you'll need to and come back. Next we'll need to use a fully charged
 | ERYX UPPERCUT. Go stand on the platform under the catwalk and use it
 | on on of the Rages. Then, once you are in the air, Angel Lift onto
 | the rage, leap off of it, and boost onto the catwalk! Once you've
 | done that, the .: GOLDEN KEY :. is yours!
 |
 | NOTE: You can also (likely; I haven't personally done it) use the
 |       skill ENEMY STEP with an Eryx Uppercut and do this as well.
 |
 | NOTE: I've had a reader point out that he has better luck killing the
 |       Rages and then repeatedly using Enemy Step with the Stygians over
 |       and over. Give it a try if you wish!
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
        
         
 Once the enemies are dead continue on and use the lift point. You'll come
to a Divinity Statue as well. Keep going and lift onwards. Kill the Demon
Spiders and keep lifting to a new wing platform. One more time to the far
building. Once you land, STOP and look to the right. There is another catwalk
to the right. Jump over to it and get the red orb container then round the
corner for the .: LOST SOUL 2/2 :.. Head back to the main path now.

 Enter the big room and some Harpies will come out, along with a tip:

 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   FALLEN HARPY!
   
   Harpies' Wings can be destroyed using Dante's firearms. Be sure to act
   quickly, as the wings grow back in time.
   
   
 Good tip. Destroy the wings, draw them in. That's what I've been doing!
Let's put it to practice. This room should be noted for it's ODD layout
though. Basically the middle is a deathtrap. The four corners are the only
safe points, but they are all divided. You will face two Harpies and some
Death Knights here. Try to focus on the Harpies but feel free to take out
the Death Knights if they are a nuisance. You can knock them down the holes
of course. This wave of enemies is followed up by Witches. Not very fun,
given their ranged attacks.


 Once everyone is dead (Gah, I fell a few times!) the way forward will be
open. There are red orbs and health orbs on the walls here. There is also
a GOLD DOOR in this area, so use it if you got that key earlier.
   

 GOLD - SUBSISTENCE
 ------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Survive until the timer expires.
 
            Each enemy killed restores some of Dante's health.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 3:00
 
 
 Ooo, this one is fun. What they don't tell you right away (but what
makes it interesting) is that your health is AUTOMATICALLY decreasing as
time goes on.


 The first two minutes of the fight are extremely simple. Stygian foes start
things out and after awhile they will be joined by Death Knights. After that
you will have Ravagers thrown into the mix.

 But during the last 45 seconds or so you will be joined by a DREAMRUNNER!
 
 This guy shows up later in the game, but is tough. Don't be too scared
though. He is the skinny guy with the blades. He'll block most of your
attacks unless they are charged, which makes ERYX great for dealing with
him. He can also reflect projectiles and warp. When he warps into a hole he
will often come out and attack you.

 Normally I'd say counter him and his warps with Eryx but in THIS challenge
you are better off forgetting him and focusing on all of the other enemies.
You just need to hold off and do some occasional killing after all; no need
to go after him yet.


 Once you are done you'll be awarded a .: DEVIL CROSS FRAGMENT :.. Congrats!

        
 END GOLD - SUBSISTENCE
 ----------------------  


 Continue on using the lift points and you'll meet up with Phineas once
again. He'll end up blowing Dante's mind. Heh...

 Watch the scenes as Phineas gives you some clues about what would REALLY
piss off Mundus. Good info. He'll open the way for us but we'll have to
travel it upside down! Ugh, this perspective is giving me a headache. You
only have to do it for a little bit though so keep running. Soon the tower
will destroy the bridge and we'll be right-side up.


 Time to get down there. Boost down to the platform and you'll see the tower
is still after us. Go down to the next one (stick to the right) and be ready
to Lift up to the left! Use the lifts here and boost over quickly. The tower
will turn this into a slide. Keep boosting while the viewpoint is straight as
the tower beam chases you. Use three more lift points, stay to the right and
slide down, then four lift points in a row. After this you'll crash into the
monitor and, well... will be inside the news show!


 Yeah... quite the view, huh? Head down this path using the Lift points and
boosting when you need to. It's quite linear so no need to go in-depth. At
the end you'll break through to a circular arena. Time to face ol' Bob.

 | Boss Battle -                  Bob Barbas                  - Boss Battle |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - General Information: While you can go up and hurt Bob's face, it won't |
 |   do any damage. What we need to do here is use the ERYX SMASH ATTACK on |
 |   one of the orange nodes out in the battlefield. This will send a       |
 |   shockwave up Bob's way and make him vulnerable. THEN go attack. You'll |
 |   only get so long to attack, so retreat when you see an orange circle   |
 |   form around him. Keep attacking after that though until a HUGE orange  |
 |   circle appears. Retreat again and repeat this process until you take   |
 |   off 1/3rd of his lift. Once you do that Angel Lift his eye and you'll  |
 |   be taken to the piers. Fight the Stygian's here (a great place for SSS |
 |   and orbs) until you get back to the boss fight.                        |
 |                                                                          |
 |   This second phase ratchets up the speed a bit and changes the attacks  |
 |   a bit. Generally there's either more obstacles or they get faster. Or  |
 |   both. Keep up the same strategy though and pound the ground, attack    |
 |   when he's blue, watch out for orange circles. You have to pound TWO    |
 |   points to make him vulnerable now. Soon you can Angel Lift the other   |
 |   eye and you'll be in the Virility Factory. More cool commentary here   |
 |   as you kill Stygians, then back to the fight for another scene.        |
 |                                                                          |
 |   The third phase turns up his attacks even more and you have to pound   |
 |   all THREE points to make him vulnerable. No biggie. Keep at is and     |
 |   soon you'll emerge victorious!                                         |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Purple Lasers: Three purple lasers fan out and start rotating. This is |
 |   probably his easiest attack to avoid: just jump over them. They aren't |
 |   even really fast... Just be careful of them (randomly) spawning right  |
 |   under you. They get faster, wider, and more numerous as the fight goes |
 |   on.                                                                    |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Green Lasers: Bob spits out two green laser walls and tries to hit you |
 |   with them. He makes them stay in the same area you are and come        |
 |   together. You can easily double jump in-place and remain safe, though. |
 |   These get faster as the fight goes on.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Double-Palm Slam: The ugly beast rears back and brings both of its     |
 |   fists down. You should have more time to evade this than the regular   |
 |   palm slam.                                                             |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Laser Wall: Bob sends a circular wall of laser boxes outward from his  |
 |   center location. It is tall and all-encompasing, meaning it WILL pass  |
 |   you, but the wall has SEVERAL GREEN SPOTS that allow you to pass       |
 |   through unhurt. When you see this attack, look for the green spots and |
 |   get to them to remain safe. There are more walls as the fight goes on. |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Blue Lasers: Bob spits out a tall wall of blue lasers and rotates it a |
 |   bit. He can do this when you aren't even near him to give you a        |
 |   breather. If he does this when you're close, run with the laser        |
 |   direction and you'll be ok. This lasts longer and gets wider as the    |
 |   fight goes on.                                                         |
 |                                                                          |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+


 After the fight, you will acquire a new angelic weapon! Aquila!
 
 
   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   AQUILA
        
    Lightning fast, dual wielded weapons. Their long range and sweeping
    attacks make them devastating against large groups of weak enemies.
    
        
   GROUND: KILLER: Triangle x4
   
           ROUND TRIP: Circle
           
           
   AIR: SKIRMISH: Triangle x2
   
        CALIBUR: Circle
           
           
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'No talking!' Bronze trophy here.


(-NOTE-) Now that you have AQUILA, you can go back and COMPLETELY finish
         Missions THREE, FIVE and SEVEN.

 Good music here. Watch the scene and a demon will spot you. Back to Limbo.
 
 Here the game will tell you to equip Aquila and use it with some tutorial
messages. Go ahead and try it out. I like it's ranged features the best: tie
up enemies and attack other enemies at the same time.

 The fun doesn't last too long though as you meet a new enemy called the
BUTCHER. This thing can use sawblades to attack. Neat. After the quick scene
you'll be in a much wider area (good!). The butcher can fling his blades at
you if you're too far away (both horizontally and vertically, kinda like the
Hunter's Kunai). When you're up close he has a variety of close swipes. His
weak point is the yellow point on his suit, where his stomach would be. A good
idea is to stay close to him which baits him into using close attacks, evade,
then go in for a few hits. A hit and run strategy. The spot will turn red as
you hurt it and he'll explode when he's about to die so be careful!


 Once he's dead the scenery will change a bit. Use the Angel Lift points until
the game gives you another tutorial to throw Aquila at distant Blue Vines. Ah,
so THAT'S how you do that... do so and Lift into the building. Punch the next
crystal and you can use a Divinity Statue if you wish. Punch the ground now
and open the next Blue Vine door but DO NOT go through it. There's another
Blue Vine door in the distance. Open it up too and boost over there for a
.: SMALL VITALITY STAR :. and some red orb containers (and a spider). THEN
drop down.


 Down here look around for a small room  with a .: LOST SOUL 1/7 :. in it,
then break the Red Crystal door. Looks like the SWAT are just killing
whoever. Huh. Keep going through the floor and gather up the red orbs and
then through the next crystal door. You'll see Kat's wards are working.
Jump down and take on the Butcher who is reinforced by Stygian enemies.
After you take them out it is tip time:

 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   ROUNDTRIP
   
   Aquila Roundtrip attack is great for juggling enemies, but is also very
   effective at destroying a witch's shield.
   
   Hold L2 + Circle to charge up the attack, then release.
   
   
 Good to know, what with the witch here. Try it out and it works wonders.
You'll face a Tyrant and a Witch here, so be careful of charge attacks from
the Tyrant as you take out the witch. Once they are dead check the walls for
health orbs. The SWAT team will also blow open the door. Follow them through
another door and into an open area. Look to the left for .: LOST SOUL 2/7 :.
on a wall and where you came in from for some red orbs.

 Here you'll have to fight some Stygians and Shielded Bathos. Take them out
and use Aquila to open the Blue Vine door. Lift up and you'll find yourself
in some sort of server room. Kill the two Demonic Shards and take out the
Stygian and Bathos foes. After that will be a wave of Ravagers and Pathos.
Once they are all dead the pathway will open up.

 This area leads to a split in the path. We can go left or right. The left
path is actually a DEAD END, so let's do that one first...


 Head down the corridor as Limbo shuts off a door (Cannot Hide!). Take a
right and break down the Arbiter door on the left. Grab the red orbs in here
and kill .: LOST SOUL 3/7 :.. Break down the other door and the crystal door
in front of you. Go through the next archway and look to the left wall for
.: LOUST SOUL 4/7 :.. Easy. Continue on and explore the area past here for
red orbs and a COPPER DOOR. Time for a challenge.
          
          
 COPPER - THE POWER WITHIN
 -------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies before Dante's Devil Trigger expires.
 
            Each enemy killed restores some of Dante's Devil Trigger.
 
 TIME LIMIT: N/A
 
 
 This should be a fun challenge. Rather easy. You start off in Devil
Trigger. Angel Lift to each enemy and take them out. Standard Aerial Rave
attacks are more than enough here. Once you kill all of them you'll be
done.


 Collect the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. and rejoice in victory!

        
 END COPPER - THE POWER WITHIN
 -----------------------------  


 After that, head back to the path split. There? Good, let's get a Lost
Soul. Head to the far right and then right again. Past the first archway
look behind you to see .: LOST SOUL 5/7 :.. Kill it and head to further in
to find this is a dead end. Grab the red orbs here and leave, killing a
Ravager on your way out.


 Head back now and take the right path (your first right). Gather the red
orbs but BEFORE going into the green door head to your right and kill off
.: LOST SOUL 6/7 :.. 

 Head through the door now. Go down the stairs to a split. The left is a
dead end but does have some red orbs. Head right and when the path goes left
head STRAIGHT. Around this corner you'll see a key. Follow the path to a red
crystal door and smash it for a .: COPPER KEY :. and red orbs. Good. Kill the
Ravager that rushes you as well. (Go use the Copper Key on the door from
earlier, if you had no Copper Keys!).


 Continue down the path and you'll come to a Divinity Statue. Upgrade if
you wish and continue.

(-NOTE-) I bought my fourth Health Cross here and got the 'This is my kind
         of rain' Bronze Trophy. You get this for spending 10,000 Red Orbs.
 
 
 Head past the statue and take a LEFT. Up here is a .: SMALL DEVIL TRIGGER
STAR :., a new item!
 

   SMALL DEVIL TRIGGER STAR
   
   Restores a small portion of Dante's Devil Trigger.
   
   During gameplay, press Start and select 'Items' to use Devil Trigger
   stars.
   
   
 Cool. Keep going and you'll run into a hallway. Here you'll have to fight
a Butcher and some Stygians. The Butcher will try and stay at range and
throw shit at you. Try to stay close to the walls to make him miss while you
kill the Stygians, then go take him out. After that go forward and note the
LOST SOUL up above (too high up). You'll then meet a new nameless foe (who
when I looked it up online is called a Dreamrunner... let's run with that!).

 The Dreamrunner is AGILE. Very agile. He can do a quick dash attack and
can block many of your moves. He can also create portals and launch surprise
attacks. He'll block bullets and even Aquila (at times). Before we kill him
though, let's address that last Lost Soul


       SPECIAL!:
 .-´ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 | 
 |  Getting this last lost soul is a chore. It's WAY too high to reach.
 | to do this make sure you have the LEAP ability. Now during the fight
 | with the Dreamrunner you want to use ERYX and charge up an uppercut.
 | This is best done when he creates a portal and is about to attack you:
 | charge an uppercut underneath the lost soul. When he comes out let him
 | have it and QUICKLY Angel Lift him, jump off his head, boost over to
 | the lost soul and kill it. That's how you get .: LOST SOUL 7/7 :..
 | Tricky? Yes, but you can do it. It will take some practice so be ready.
 |
 `-.----------------------------------------------------------------------'
 

 Ugh, OK, that last Lost Soul is a pain. Once you have it beat the Dreamrunner
by using Aquila (which can land if you're lucky) and power attacks with Eryx.
He'll run away afterward. Collect the health orbs if you need them and let's
continue. You'll be at the end of the mission soon enough.

 No items to worry about in this mission. Good.
 
 Follow Kat as she makes the red circles near the main door. Pull them
down as soon as you can to stop the SWAT. Go back to the first circle now
and pull it when she completes it. Keep following Kat and watching the
scenes. A SWAT member will find her at one point but you can pull a rack
of equipment down on him.

 Keep following Kat and she'll lead you to Dante... eventually. Just be a
bit patient and soon you'll see Vergil is in Limbo with you and a Butcher.
Tip time!


   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   BLADED BUTCHER!
   
   Using carefully timed strikes, the Butcher's blades can be parried
   back at him, leaving him vulnerable.
   
   
 Oh can they now? Let's try it. Take out the Butcher and Stygian foes.
We'll have to hold out for awhile in this room, by the way. There IS a
Divinity Statue to the left and a bunch of red orb containers.

 The next wave is a challenge. Three Ravagers and a Butcher. Try to isolate
the Ravagers and take them out (be careful of their charges) while avoiding
the Butcher's ranged attacks. After that you'll be introduced to a new
enemy: RAGE SPAWN. These things are tiny and weak, but can get quick hits
in. I recommend Aquila on them.

 Once they are dead the center floor will disappear and waves of Demonic
Shards will show up. Blow them all to bits. Once you've killed them Vergil
will throw you a new firearm! Nice!


   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   REVENANT
        
    A powerful shotgun, useful for clearing crowds of enemies, and
    dealing high damage at close range.
    
        
   GROUND AND AIR: SHOOT: Square

          
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'More than just a few sparks' Bronze trophy here.
          
          
 Very nice! Use it on the upcoming Demonic Shard enemies and you'll see
what power is all about. After that you'll have another wave of Rage Spawn
(good shotgun fodder) followed by a ton of Stygian and Harpy foes. The
Revenant can take off the Harpy wings in a single shot, so use it to drop
them and follow up with Angel Weapon attacks. I like to use Angel Weapons
followed by Drive and Death Coil. They do wonders.


 After that wave watch the scenes. Wow....

 Watch the scenes here as Vergil and Dante argue a bit. Eventually Dante
will win. Sounds like Kat held up quite well. Kinda surprised that she's
still, well, alive. Vergil will find Lilith's nightclub and Dante will
enter. It won't take long for his name to be yelled (go figure) and he'll
be dragged into Limbo. Play time.


 Take out the Death Knights and Stygian foes. Kinda hard to see in here.
After them will be more Stygians and a Hell Knight. Focus on him first
and have fun afterward. That is followed up by a Witch and even more
cannon fodder. After you defeat that wave there'll be some scenes with
Dante and Lilith conversing.


 She'll turn the place into a pit and throw a Tyrant and some Harpies at
you. Take out the Harpies first (Shotgun!) and then the Tyrant. After that
are some more Stygians. After you've killed them all there's another scene
and the place will open up quite a bit!


 First let's turn around and jump up to the level above us. There's a
.: LOST SOUL 1/7 :. up here on the wall above the door, as well as GREEN
Demon spiders! Hah. From up here face the dance floor. Go to the far right.
There's an Angel Lift in the distance you can use. Do so and kill the
spiders where you land. Use the next lift to the right and collect the red
orbs and the .: GOLDEN KEY :..

 Head back to the upper area where the soul was. Go to the far left now.
Another Angel Lift in the distance. Go over there and collect the red orbs.
There is an IVORY DOOR here (but we haven't seen an Ivory Key yet! We'll
have to come back for this!).
          
           
 IVORY - SHENANIGANS
 -------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies.
 
 TIME LIMIT: N/A
 
 
 This is a good old-fashioned fight. Nothing spectacular here.
 
 You are up against THREE enemies: A Witch, a GHOST RAGE, and a BLOOD RAGE.
 
 Take out the witch first. Ignore the rages until she is dead. Use Aquila
to drop her shields and make her vulnerable and take her out. Once she is
dead the Rage's can easily be maintained. Tie up the Ghost Rage with Aquila
while you kill the Blood Rage. After that you just have one pissed off Ghost
Rage to deal with. No biggie.


 Once you finish admire the .: DEVIL TRIGGER CROSS :. you are given!
An entire cross, just for us! Wow!

        
 END IVORY - SHENANIGANS
 -----------------------  


 Head back down to the dance floor. There is a Divinity Statue to the left
if you need it. Now instead of going up the ramp, go BEHIND it to find a
.: LOST SOUL 2/7 :. and kill it. Now up the ramp. There's a health orb on
one of the columns up here. Smash the floor plate with Eryx when you're
ready.


 Time for The Devil Has Talent!


 Or something like that... anyway check out the tutorial on the screen:
 
 Hold R2 for IMMUNITY to Demonic Floors.
 
 Hold L2 for IMMUNITY to Angelic Floors.
 
 
 Pretty easy, no? Head down the RIGHT path and take the right path over
the alternate floors when you can, to the far platform. You'll find spiders
here as well as .: LOST SOUL 3/7 :.. Head back now and continue to the wide
area up ahead. This will be "Round One". We'll have to fight four Stygian
foes here while the floor changes. It's mostly going to be a normal floor,
but strips of Devil and Angel flooring will come out so be ready for them
and use those weapons when they come.


 Once you beat Round One, smash the button with Eryx again. You'll see a
ton of platforms appear. These things bounce slightly when you land on them,
but this path is straight forward with no evil tricks (I was totally expecting
an evil trick). Just boost when you have to and you'll come to the next wide
area. ROUND TWO! Here you have to kill the enemies in 30 seconds. This is
laughably easy. Two Stygian foes and two Bathos. Take them out and smash the
button with Eryx again.


 A new path will pop up. You can choose the high ground or the low ground
here. It doesn't matter which path you choose, they are both linear and
easy to navigate. You will be attacked by a Stygian no matter which path you
take, but only one. Soon you'll be in a wide area again. Time for ROUND THREE!
This is another floor fight with Hell Knights and a Ravager. The floor tiles
will come in sideways this time but no big deal. Kill them all and hit the
button with Eryx to continue.


 Once you hit the button pause and look behind you for .: LOST SOUL 4/7 :.
is right here. Continue on and kill the spiders and soon you'll be in a wide
area. ROUND FOUR! FIGHT! We are up against Rage Spawn here, but we'll get a
tip:


   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   CROWD CLEARER!
   
   Revenant's Fireworks attack is great when surrounded by weak enemies.
   
   Press X + Square to perform Fireworks (Must be unlocked from the
   upgrade shop).
   
   
 Good tip! I happen to have it at this point and it does work nicely.
I used it followed by regular shots to clear the whole room. Lilith will
come talk to you a bit afterward. Hit the button to make some walkways
appear.


(-NOTE-) In the paragraph below I'll take you to a Lost Soul. Go that way
         and DON'T follow the path. If you were curious the path leads to a
         fight with a Frost Knight and some Stygians but makes you give up
         the Lost Soul!
 
 
 Take the right path but look out to the right and you'll see an Angel Lift
in the distance. Boost over there to the platform. There's another one beyond
that, so boost over there and shoot off of it to another platform. Smash the
button here to make a walkway appear. Follow it to .: LOST SOUL 5/7 :..
Pound the button to continue and head down to another platform. Kill the Hell
Knight and Stygians here and collect the red orbs. Lilith will come out to
talk some more shit. Hit the button. Continue on to the next platform and
Angel Lift / Boost to the next big area.


 ROUND FIVE! Oh boy, another Dreamrunner. As usual avoid his attacks and try
to hit him hard with Eryx. The more charged up the better. You can occasionally
get an Aquila to stick and REALLY lay into him then. Just be ready to dodge
at any time. Hit the button when you are done. Head up the stairs and at the
top they will disappear.


 From where you are standing there is a Divinity Statue to the left, with
a red orb container. Use it if you want and check out the edges of this
platform. There is an area with a ARGENT DOOR nearby. If you have a key be
sure to take on the challenge!
          
           
 ARGENT - HASTY ACQUISITION
 --------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Gain the target number of red orbs within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 0:35
 
 
 OOOOH boy.  We have to beat up red orb containers until we get 90
red orbs! And we only have 35 seconds! This one is ROUGH.

 First take a look at the area we're in. Note where all the clusters of red
orb containers are at! Plan a route, but keep this one life saving thing in
mind: you can SHOOT these things to get the orbs too! That being said, you
need to have the proper aim to do it, which is a bit tricky. Line yourself
up with the containers near the walls and you can often shoot them and
save yourself some time.


 Once you have it done, claim the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. as your
own and enjoy the victory!

        
 END ARGENT - HASTY ACQUISITION
 ------------------------------  

 
 After that, head back to the Divinity Statue and look behind it. In the
distance is a platform with an Angel Lift. Go use it. Once you are on it
turn around and look up for another one. Once you are on that look ahead
for a third platform. Get on it for a .: SMALL DEVIL TRIGGER STAR :. and
another .: LOST SOUL 6/7 :.. Head back down to the main area now.

 Continue down the main path. You'll come to a big platform that has the
final .: LOST SOUL 7/7 :. on the far wall. Kill it and smash the button
once you are ready. 

 
 Take a path and continue. You'll soon come to a dance floor. Watch the
scene and you'll soon meet a new enemy: a GHOST RAGE. Fun. Oh, and guess
what? This thing is only harmed by ANGELIC WEAPONS! Take it out however
you can (SHREDDER!) and you'll meet another new enemy: a BLOOD RAGE. Yep,
it's RED, so only DEMONIC WEAPONS. Take him out too.


 Now we'll have to face both. I like to focus on the Blood Rage first
since I can personally kill with Eryx faster but it's up to you. Really
no different than Frost / Hell Knights, just more dangerous perhaps.
Kill them both and the mission will be over.

 This mission is really just a boss fight. And no, it's not against
Lilith. Well, it kind-of is, but not really. We're mostly going up against
Mundus' Spawn.

 Watch the scenes as you find out what that really means. Ugh. Well,
let's do this...


 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 | Boss Battle -                 Mundus' Spawn                - Boss Battle |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - General Information: First of all, note the two health bars. The top   |
 |   one is for LILITH, who as of right now we can't see. The bottom one    |
 |   is for the SPAWN. We can definitely see him! The fight is over when    |
 |   Lilith's life bar is depleted. The Spawn will just get new life bars   |
 |   when we take it out. That's the key here though, once we take out the  |
 |   spawn, we will be able to DEMON PULL Lilith out of it and hurt her.    |
 |   Later on in the fight I HIGHLY recommend using DEVIL TRIGGER when you  |
 |   pull Lilith out so you can layeth the smacketh downeth...              |
 |                                                                          |
 |   But getting the Spawn down needs to come first. You can hurt him in    |
 |   the conventional manor but there's some things you should know about   |
 |   the Spawn. First of all, there's an Angel Lift point ON his body.      |
 |   Check his left side for the point. You can use it to get up close and  |
 |   pour on the aerial combos. A ways into the battle you'll see that the  |
 |   Spawn has a third eye that converts into a Lift Point as well. Handy.  |
 |                                                                          |
 |   As the fight continues the third eye will phase in and out, so you     |
 |   can only grab it at certain times. He'll also try and cover up his     |
 |   side lift point with a short stubby hand. Note that it is red and you  |
 |   can pull it away. Heh. Check out his moves below, and above all be     |
 |   sure to remember to Devil Trigger Lilith near the end of the fight.    |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Shockwaves: This is the most annoying attack, in my opinion. The       |
 |   Spawn will pound on the floor and send out shockwaves. These look      |
 |   like audio waves. Fitting for a club. Double Jump over them. Near      |
 |   the end of the fight it will do this MULTIPLE TIMES IN A ROW. Quite    |
 |   annoying.                                                              |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Punch: A normal punching attack. He does this when you're hanging      |
 |   around his side, to get you away. More of a flick attack, I suppose.   |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Phasing: The Spawn can phase in and out of sight. He often follows     |
 |   this up with a sweeping/swiping attack while charging at you. This     |
 |   isn't really an attack on its own, but you should know about it.       |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Swipe/Sweep: This is the Spawns most dangerous attacks. He uses these  |
 |   the most, I've seen. He can do a large swipe through the air as well   |
 |   as sweep the ground in front of him. Drop down for the swipes and try  |
 |   and stay on the offensive (at least attack the side) on the sweeps.    |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Ball Attack: I rarely see this attack, but from what I've seen the     |
 |   Spawn picks up a ball from somewhere (not sure where) and chucks it    |
 |   at you. Very easy to avoid.                                            |
 |                                                                          |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+


 After the fight watch the entertaining scenes. Dante done good.

 Watch the scenes. You KNOW this isn't going to go well... and sure enough.
How did I know that? Oh well, once you have control, quickly go Angel Lift
to the car, then jump to the railcar box to the left and pull the next boxcar
out of the way. Watch the scene after that. Looks like our work isn't done
yet.

 Go get on the car again and boost ahead. You'll need to slam down three
times to get the boxcars out of the way. Once that is done STOP and look
to the LEFT. There should be a yard full of boxcars over there. Boost
over there and find the .: COPPER KEY :. over there. You can also shoot the
spiders and collect some red orbs.


 Get out of there and continue down the path the car was heading using
all of the Lift points at your disposal. At the end you'll see a scene with
even more trouble for the car. A spinning propeller this time! You'll have
to fight a Ravager and two Stygians here first though, so take them out.
You can even drop them in the hole between you and the car if you wish.
If you're brave there's some red orb containers here you can gather then
boost over there and pull the propeller out of the way.


 More scenes follow. Ride on top of the truck until it goes down, then use
the two Angel Lifts on the light poles on the right side of the street.
After the second one head to the left side and keep going. Time will slow
down once again.

 We have a lot to do! Quickly boost to the right next to the building, gather
the red orbs, break the Blue Vine door and take the .: SMALL VITAL STAR :..
Head back and pull the bus now. Get on it and boost to the LEFT near the
warehouse. Don't go in but up the boxes ahead of you and look to the left.
There is a .: COPPER KEY :. over here. That's all the keys in the level.

 Drop down and enter the warehouse now. There's three Stygian enemies
here you can kill. Do so quickly. After that gather up the red orb containers
and the health one too if you need it and head to the brace where the game
pointed out the Red Crystal. Over here you can gather red orb containers
too. Punch the brace when you're done and we have escaped! Win!

 Watch the scenes as Kat shares what she's learned. Time for the brothers
to split up. Dante sure get's his attention all right...


 Quick, run forward and stay on the street. Keep to the left and boost to
continue. You'll have to Angel Lift soon but you can shoot out of it and
another one to gain some ground. Keep going and use more Angel Lifts when
you can. At the third set by sure to boost inbetween the Lifts.

 Once you reach solid ground you'll meet a new enemy: ELITE STYGIAN. Huh,
I guess it's about time they change them up. They have a much larger blade
and can additionally do a shockwave attack. No biggie, have fun with them
like normal. Once you take them out you'll have to kill a Witch with more
of them. After that a scene will play showing the gates opening up. We only
have a few seconds to get over there so play with the new reinforcements for
a bit and then head inside.


 In here you'll face a Dreamrunner... TO THE DEATH! Heh. Use proven tactics
like charged Eryx attacks to take him out. Grab the health orbs nearby  if
you need to. Time to continue on. You'll find a Divinity Statue up ahead.
Watch the scene and use it if you want but DO NOT go in the elevator. Break
down the Arbiter Door nearby and go down for red orbs, a .: SMALL VITALITY
STAR :., and .: LOST SOUL 1/9 :..


 Head back up and use the elevator now. You'll head to Floor 87 where you
will meet up with Vergil. The two of you will split off. Follow the path
Kat tells you while collecting Red Orbs along the way. You'll have to fight
a Ravager and some Stygians at one point, so kill them and move onto the
sky bridge (the door to the left).


 Watch the scene until the lasers turn off. Move past them onto the next
building and you'll see a scene. After that will be a new tip!
 
 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   PING PONG!
   
   The Dreamrunner can parry Dante's ranged attacks back at him...
   but you can return them again with a well timed strike.
   
   
 Sounds fun. Try it if you wish, but not at the cost of taking him out.
He's joined by two Shielded Pathos: focus on them and then use Enyx to
finish the job. After that you can check out the only open room here to
find a Demonic Shard and Spiders if you wish. The elevator (the one with
the bright light) will hurt you if you try to go in it... yeah...

 Instead find the Lift point and move up a floor. Head to the wide area
and fight two Rage enemies. After they are dead break the Red Crystal
door and kill the spiders. You can also find an area to the left of the
weird moving bookcases where black boxes are floating upwards. If you wait
long enough you can boost past them and find a room full of spiders. Once
you are done playing around hit the elevator.


 Onto Floor 105 for us. Good job, dumbass. Oh well. Follow the path left
(note the path to the right is blocked) and you'll get into a fight. Tons
of Stygian's and a Witch. Kill them all off and the path will open. In fact,
the path near the elevator is open too. Head over there and you'll see
another pit behind the elevator, but this one has a key and lost souls
beyond it! Boost over there and claim the .: GOLD KEY :., .: LOST SOUL 2/9 :.
and .: LOST SOUL 3/9 :.. Very nice.


 Head back. I should mention the health orbs here. Nab them if you wish.
Kill two Demonic Shards that show up and ignore the room on the right.
You'll run into two Ghost Rages over here, and a tip!
 
 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   DOUBLE TEAMED!
   
   Aquila Round Trip can be used to stun one enemy, while you concentrate
   on another. This is particularly useful against Ghost Rages.
   
   Hold then release L2 + Circle to perform Round Trip.
   
   
 We... kinda already knew that. Or well you SHOULD have. Anyway, trap one
or both and attack them. Heck, you could trap them to death if you wanted.
Do what you wish and then jump on top of the room to the right. There's a
Lift point here, get up on it. Kill the spiders to the right and then go
through the door like the game says. The hallway will try to crush you here
so boost to safety. Keep going down the only path (lots of holes in this
next room!) and you'll have to kill some Stygians. The path back will also
close.


 In this new area keep your eyes open for a path to the right. It will have
some pits in it. Get between the pits and go left, to the staircase. From
here if you head UP you will get some red orbs and .: LOST SOUL 4/9 :.. If
you go down you can find a GOLD DOOR!


 GOLD - EXTREME TRAVERSAL
 ------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Reach the goal within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:40
 
 
 Oh man... we knew this was coming eventually...
 
 Thank god for dry runs. Let's dry run this together first.
 
 
 Head forward and use the Lift points. Some of the lift points will shoot
you forward so be ready to hit X right away. Land and pull out the stone so
you can continue. You'll run into an Arbiter door, so smash it. Boost past
the bridge and up to the tree area.


 Here use the Lifts which are all shooters. Be ready to Devil Pull a
piece of land though. It'll go underneath you. Quickly switch to Eryx as
you boost forward and smash the Crystal you see. Run forward to find some
more Lift points. The first ones are shooters while the last two aren't, so
be ready to boost between the last ones to land safely.


 Get up the stairs and bust out Osiris to get through the Vines, then use
Eryx for the Crystal. More Lift points are past the door. Use the first one
then use a Pull. Shoot for a ways and be ready to use another Lift and Pull
after that. Finally just keep shooting to the finish line. Exciting!


 Now that you've got the gist of it all you have to do is execute. Not too
hard but you can't make any serious mistakes. If you do you may as well
start over.
 

 Once you have it done, claim the .: HEALTH CROSS FRAGMENT :. as your
own and enjoy the victory!

        
 END GOLD - EXTREME TRAVERSAL
 ----------------------------

 
 Now that we've done that, head back up and out to Floor 106. If you were
curious, past that second whole is just the part of the floor with all the
holes in the floor. In front of us is a Lift point (DO NOT use it yet) and
a room to the left. There are red orbs in the room. Instead of using the
Lift point drop down to the section below.


 Down here kill all of the Stygian foes that come out. The first room on
the left also has two Demonic Shard enemies. Once they are dead open the
Blue Vine door and claim .: LOST SOUL 5/9 :. and red orbs (spiders!). Head
back out and go check the table for a .: SMALL DEVIL TRIGGER STAR :.. More
importantly, go check out the elevators. The one on the right will open when
you get close enough. Jump in it and kill .: LOST SOUL 6/9 :. as well as
.: LOST SOUL 7/9 :.. Jackpot!


 Head back now and go up a floor (there is a lift where you dropped down).
Use the Lift points with the shooters to carry on. Head through the door
and you'll see a scene. Looks like Vergil has company. We, on the other hand,
have some timing puzzles.


 We HAVE to get through this unscathed. Well, HAVE is a strong word. There
is a trophy in it for us, so we have motivation! This first set of lasers you
can just air dash above. Pretty easy, just time it right. The next one you
need to be a little higher on so double jump then air dash. The third one
needs a short jump and an air dash.


 There's a break between the laser sets now, but it won't be boring.
You'll have to fight a Dreamrunner and two Stygian enemies here. Don't
get hit by the lasers. Take care of the Stygian foes and then use Eryx
to focus on the Dreamrunner. Stay in the middle to be safe.


 The fourth set of lasers requires a high air dash. Shouldn't be too hard.
The fifth one is pretty much the same but different timing. Again, you got
this. After that Kat will talk a bit and soon the trophy is yours.


(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Now my coat's all charred' Bronze trophy here.


 The game wants you to go right but go left instead. You'll be rewarded with
an easy to see .: LOST SOUL 8/9 :.. Head back now and go right. There is a
Divinity Statue here if you need it. Continue on and meet up with Vergil in
the elevator. Watch the short scene and Vergil will give you ANOTHER firearm.
Man, that guy...


   NEW WEAPON UNLOCKED!
   --------------------
   
   
   KABLOOEY
        
    Fires explosive needles that stick in enemies, and can be
    manually detonated.
    
        
   GROUND AND AIR: SHOOT: Square
   
                   DETONATE: X + Square

          
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'You're not going to shoot me' Bronze trophy here.
          

 I suppose we should try it out. The game things so to as it will give you
an enemy and a tutorial just for the gun. Huh. Fun. Keep heading down the
path fighting some Pathos and Stygian foes until the game tells you to go
right. Instead, go STRAIGHT. This corner has .: LOST SOUL 9/9 :. as well as
some red orbs. Now go to the skybridge.


 It will collapse on us. Boost forward and use the Lift, then keep boosting
to the other building. Kat will mention five stories of hell. Ugh. Fun.
BEFORE you go into the elevator open the Blue Vine room and shoot the spiders
and gather all the red orbs. Also, head into the far corner of this area to
see a COPPER DOOR. May as well use a key!


 COPPER - BAIT AND SWITCH
 ------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies within the time limit.
 
            Enemies only take damage while the Demon Evade damage bonus
            is active.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 1:30
 
 
 Huh. I guess this door only works if you bought that skill...
 
 Still, this is a VERY easy mission. Keep Demon Mode on and get ready to
evade. You only have to beat three Stygian enemies. Perfectly evade one
and then retaliate. With Eryx I was able to do this in NINE SECONDS.
 

 Once you have it done, claim the .: DEVIL TRIGGER CROSS FRAGMENT :. as
your own and enjoy the victory!

        
 END COPPER - BAIT AND SWITCH
 ----------------------------

 
 Head into the elevator now and endure your hell! Hah! Note how the floor
numbers change. Yep, I knew that 666 was coming...


 Once you exit you'll be outside. Battle some Harpies until a Tyrant shows
up with yet another tip:
 
 
   ADVANCED TIP!
   -------------
   
   ENRAGE BREAKER!
   
   The Kablooey is extremely useful for getting in behind enemy defenses.
   Using 4 darts, it's even possible to break enemy enrage states.
   
   Press Square to shoot darts.
   
   Press X + Square to detonate.
   

 That actually sounds helpful, especially for Rages and Tyrants. I tried it
out and didn't really like it though. Up to you. Kill the Harpies and the
Tyrant and a "new" foe called the DREKAVAC will show up. He looks like the
Dreamrunner to me. Treat him exactly the same and he will fall soon enough.


 After that Limbo will say NO and start to tear the place apart. Run forward
and dash to the first piece of rubble, then run and dash to the second. Here
you need to use some lift points and a boost to get into a walkway, then run
and use the next lift point to end this level.

 Well, we're in a hell of a place. On our own too... Damn.
 
 
(-NOTE-) There will be continuous periods of fire erupting from down below,
         so we have to time our jumps just right. I won't be pointing this
         out as we go either.
  
   
         
 First of all, there is a split in the path. Left or right? Well, there is
a WRONG way to do this area and a RIGHT way (well, when it comes to gathering
items, that is).

 Take the right path first. Continue on until you get in a fight with a
Hell and Frost Knight on a skinny platform. Kill them both. From here look
off to the left and note the huge rock we can pull. Continue on the main
path instead and kill the spiders. When you get to the platform with the
tree on it, look behind it for a .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :.. DO NOT use these
Angel Lifts! Head back to the platform where we killed the Knights.

 Wait for the fire to die down, then boost to the rock. Pull it down and use
a quick lift to get up there. Kill the spiders and the .: LOST SOUL 1/5 :.
on the wall. Now, from the wall look out to the left. See the platform in the
distance? Jump to it and then the platform beyond it (the one with the wall).
This wall is actually important as you can go BEHIND it (even with the fire
going) and find .: LOST SOUL 2/5 :.. This is the left path from the beginning.
Go ahead and follow it up using the lift points.


 At the top you'll have to fight several Stygian foes with a Butcher. Try
and focus on the Butcher and kill them all. After that is another Butcher
and a Witch. I like to kill the Witch first here. Once they are dead you
can gather the health orbs (two of them) in the area and then check out the
right side for .: LOST SOUL 3/5 :.. Very nice.


 Continue on using the left path. Jump out to the rocks and follow them
using two demon pulls until you can get to a BIG area. Once you land check
out the right path to see more Angel Lifts. Follow them to find a Blue Vine
door with red orbs and a (new) .: IVORY KEY :.. Head back to the big area
now.


 Continue on down the path and you'll have to fight a Hell Knight and a
Ravager. Take them out and look onward. See the Lift with a Pull after it?
Get ready. There's two sets of Pulls - Lifts after the first Lift. You have
to be FAST to do this without getting hit by fire. The far platform you
land on has a Divinity Statue on it you can use.

 After that use the Lift points to continue. You'll have to kill two
Stygian foes but after they are dead check the right wall for yet another
.: LOST SOUL 4/5 :.. Nearly have them all. Before we continue down the main
path, from the wall look out to the abyss to the left. Keep going left and
you'll see a PULL point on a rock. Pull it out. Jump on the platform it makes
and the next, down to a GOLDEN DOOR. Challenge time!


 GOLD - A DAY IN HELL
 --------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill all enemies.
 
            Dante dies with one hit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: N/A
 
 
 Well, this one is an eye-opener. Hopefully you are good at timing and
evading. We are up against six Elite Stygians and one Ravager. A good mix
to get your teeth wet on. Shouldn't be too hard. If you're REALLY having
trouble and wanting to be cheap use DRIVE. Otherwise, get good already!
 

 Once you have it done, claim the .: DEVIL TRIGGER CROSS FRAGMENT :. as
your own and enjoy the victory!

        
 END GOLD - A DAY IN HELL
 ------------------------

 
 After the door you'll need to get back up to the main platform you were
on before you pulled the rock out. Get back up there using the convenient
Angel Lifts and continue on. You'll have to use some shoot points to carry
on but after the second one kill the spiders and STOP. Look off to the LEFT.
Boost over there for the .:  LARGE DEVIL TRIGGER STAR :., a new item.


   LARGE DEVIL TRIGGER STAR
   
   Restores all of Dante's Devil Trigger.
   
   During gameplay, press Start and select 'Items' to use Devil Trigger
   stars.


 And now we've found every item there is. Huh. Took longer than I thought
it would. Boost back to the previous platform and continue on. It's pretty
much a linear path. Pull the pull point and boost over to the large floating
area. Here, as you would expect, you'll have to fight. You'll be up against
some Tyrants, Witches and then Dreamrunners. They'll be working together by
twos. Be sure to take the Witches out first and save the Dreamrunners for
last in any combination you see. There's health and red orbs hanging up. I
actually used Devil Trigger here as well, and I hardly EVERY do that.


 Once the fight is done, use the lift points and get up to solid ground.
Here, check behind the rock on the right to find .: LOST SOUL 5/5 :..
Continue on with the Lift Points and shoot over to some new ground. One
more lift point to go and you'll be done with this mission.

 The brothers will have a quick little chat before starting. There's that
sibling rivalry...

 
 Look behind you for a .: SMALL VITALITY STAR :. and some red orbs, then
continue. Watch the scene and you'll be in a hub area with four different
tunnels. Generators, huh? In limbo? OK... there's a Divinity Statue here as
well. We may as well do this in some sort of order. Let's call the vault
door "NORTH".


 SOUTHWEST TUNNEL
 ----------------
 
 Head down the tunnel and collect all the red orbs (spiders!). At the end
WAIT before jumping down. Get to the edge and look to the right. UPPER right.
There's a Lost Soul over there. We can double jump / boost over there though
so do so for .: LOST SOUL 1/3 :.. Jump down from here and follow the tunnel
down below to the "generator". Pull it to start it. You'll battle a Ghost
Rage and a Blood Rage here, so keep the Ghost busy with Aquila and kill the
Blood Rage off to make things easy.


 NORTHEAST TUNNEL
 ----------------

 Yes, yes, this is out of order. I do this for a reason though (a reason I
leared AFTER playing but oh well). Head down the tunnel and at the first gap
look down. There is a tunnel down below, to the left. Drop down and boost
over there. Follow this path up and collect the red orbs. At the end kill the
two Demonic Shards that show up and claim the .: ARGENT KEY :.. We'll need
this in a bit. Drop down the hole to be near the generator. Go start it up
and you'll need to fight a Butcher and some weak Stygians. Take them out and
head back. Some Demonic Shards will be waiting for you.


(-NOTE-) If this is your last key of the game, you should get the 'Dude,
         the show's over!' Bronze Trophy now. If not, go get the rest of
         the keys already!


 NORTHWEST TUNNEL
 ----------------

 Time to go to the northwest. Head down the tunnel and you'll be in an open
area soon. There's an ARGENT DOOR in the distance. Before we go to it follow
the path and when it ends you'll see a Lost Soul. Boost over to him and kill
it for .: LOST SOUL 2/3 :.. Boost over to the close walkway now and head up
to the door. See, that key we got is useful this way!

 
 ARGENT - COLOSSAL TRIUMPH
 -------------------------
 
 OBJECTIVE: Kill the Tyrant within the time limit.
 
 TIME LIMIT: 0:45
 
 
 This shouldn't be a challenge at all. Just brawl it out with Eryx.
Seriously, you'll have time to spare! Very easy!
 

 Once you have it done, claim the .: DEVIL TRIGGER CROSS FRAGMENT :. as
your own and enjoy the victory!

        
 END ARGENT - COLOSSAL TRIUMPH
 -----------------------------
 
 
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'Let's welcome chaos!' Bronze trophy here if
         this is your last door opened. If it isn't, go find all the keys
         and open the doors already!
         
         
(-NOTE-) Once you complete the door you should get the 'One hell of a party!'
         Silver Trophy for beating all of the challenge rooms! Congrats!

 
 Once you are done, head down the path and start the generator. You'll need
to fight some Bathos, Stygians and a Dreamrunner here. The Dreamrunner is of
course the big threat but the grenades can help. Kill them all and head back,
killing some Demonic Shards along the way.


 SOUTHEAST TUNNEL
 ----------------

 Follow the path until you get to the generator room. To the upper left is a
Lost Soul you can get to using the platforms. Kill it for .: LOST SOUL 3/3 :.


(-NOTE-) If you've been following the guide, this should be your last one.
         This will get you the 'Fill your dark soul with light' Silver trophy.


 Congrats on the trophy, if you've got it. You may need to go find some hidden
Lost Souls before you have them all and if so that's no big deal. Now let's
start that generator. We'll fight a Witch, Bathos and Stygians. Kill them all
and head back.


 After the cool chat we'll have to ALIGN these things. You have to PUNCH
the red buttons to make the circles turn. Puzzle time!


 (-NOTE-) There's probably an easier way to do this, send me your solution
          and if it's better than mine I'll add it in. I just came up with
          this one on the first try, after all...
 
 Punch the buttons in this order:
 
 NORTH - 1
 
 EAST - 2
 
 WEST - 3
 
 SOUTH - 1

 EAST - 1
 
 WEST - 1
 
 SOUTH - 2
 
 EAST - 3

 
 Once that is done watch the scene and the mission will be over.
 
 
(-NOTE-) You should get the 'It's time to finish this!' Bronze trophy here.

 Watch the very entertaining scenes. There's quite a few of them, so enjoy.
You'll eventually see Mundus in his GIANT form. Once you have control use the
three Angel Lift points to escape. After that more scenes. Once you have
control again use the Angel Lift points (some of them are boosts) until you
get to his face, then Demon Pull it.


 More scenes will follow. Vergil will save you and once you have control
again pull the car out of the way and follow Vergil. Use your Pull when
you have to and break the Crystal and Arbiter doors. Sounds like we need to
attack his physical body. Watch the scenes and escape to the right using the
Angel Lift points.


 Here we'll actually get to the boss fight:


 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+

 | - General Information: Time to face the big guy himself. And I do mean   |
 |   BIG. Note the two health bars here. They are for his ARMS, each arm    |
 |   gets its own health bar. The next important thing to note about this   |
 |   fight is that there are TWO building tops you can fight on. From the   |
 |   first building you can boost to the right and use an Angel Lift to     |
 |   shoot over to another one. This is handy for avoiding a single attack  |
 |   (Lava Breath), so keep it in mind.                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 |   This fight is actually a LOT easier than I thought it would be. The    |
 |   arms will do several different types of attacks (see below), but will  |
 |   often stay on top of the building giving you a chance to hurt them.    |
 |   Each arm also has an Angel Lift point on it, meaning you can get in    |
 |   there FAST. Dodge all of the attacks and counterattack when you can.   |
 |                                                                          |
 |   Once each arm is downed, you'll have to pull out an eye. Very easy     |
 |   stuff. Once both arms are downed the armless body will exclusively do  |
 |   the Meteor Rain attack, followed up by screaming at you. When Mundus   |
 |   decides to scream get in there quick (there's another Angel Lift) and  |
 |   attack. There's a new life bar here but it should only take you TWO    |
 |   attacks to finish him off. And that is literally it! Avoid the attacks |
 |   below and you'll win easily.                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Smash Barrage: You'll see this a lot. He basically does three smashes  |
 |   in a row with his fists. You can evade each one and in fact you can    |
 |   even see where they are going to land. No chance to counterattack      |
 |   this move, though.                                                     |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Two-Hand Smash: This is what you want to see. He'll bring both of his  |
 |   fists down. Double jump to avoid the attack and pick your target       |
 |   afterwards. I'd aim for whichever arm has the most health.             |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Lava Flow Attack: A somewhat rarer attack, he'll use an arm to smash   |
 |   the SIDE of a building and send out a wave of lava. Jump over it and   |
 |   counterattack the arm.                                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Lava Breath: This move is easy to see coming. He'll suck energy in     |
 |   for a bit and than breath lava onto the building. This is when you     |
 |   should change buildings. He'll of course follow you but you are safe.  |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Meteor Shot: Mundus will rear back a fist and shoot a Meteor at your   |
 |   location. It's best to boost away as it is coming at you. You have to  |
 |   be quick, though.                                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Meteor Rain: This is the move Mundus does with no arms. He'll make     |
 |   THREE Meteors rain down. Unlike the Meteor Shot though, these aren't   |
 |   really aimed AT you. You'll have to just predict where they'll land    |
 |   and do your best to stay out of the way.                               |
 |                                                                          |

 Watch the scenes here. Awesome. Well, if you've played any Devil May Cry
you probably saw this coming from a mile away but still... Awesome.
         
 Here we go...


 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 | Boss Battle -                    Vergil                    - Boss Battle |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - General Information: Can't let brother rule... everything we've done   |
 |   would be for naught if that was the case. Time for some good ol'       |
 |   fashioned Sibling Rivalry...                                           |
 |                                                                          |
 |   No tricks to this fight. Vergil will block most of your attacks, as    |
 |   you would expect, but he does have several moves you can counterattack |
 |   after, which is where we're going to be doing most of our damage.      |
 |   That being said be sure to read about the moves below and become       |
 |   knowledgeable.                                                         |
 |                                                                          |
 |   Not too much else to say. One last thing: near the end of the fight    |
 |   Vergil will take a knee. Avoid the clone and enter Devil Trigger,      |
 |   then attack Vergil. This will  start the final cutscenes.              |
 |                                                                          |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Summoned Swords: Vergil's ranged attack. He'll materialize swords      |
 |   above him and after a bit they'll home in on you. Pretty easy to       |
 |   dodge. Note that he can do OTHER attacks while he is doing this one,   |
 |   which makes dodging trickier. Later on he'll summon four at once and   |
 |   they'll come at you one after another.                                 |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Rapid Slash: An ultra-cool looking move. Vergil will get ready to      |
 |   pull the Yamato out and will phase forwards. He moves so fast it looks |
 |   like a teleport. In his wake will be slashes from the Yamato. Lucky    |
 |   for you he only does this in a straight line, so get out of the way!   |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Stomp: Much like your stomp, Vergil will teleport above you and stomp  |
 |   down. This attack is ripe for a counterattack: get in there after he   |
 |   lands and put in a solid combo.                                        |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Blade Throw: Another ranged attack. Vergil throws twirling (spectral)  |
 |   blades at you. He can do this from the air where he throws one blade   |
 |   down at you or from the ground where he throws three in a row. You     |
 |   can evade easily from the air but from the ground I recommend an air   |
 |   dash. You can counter the end of this if you are fast. Use an Angel    |
 |   Lift to get over to him.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Starfall: Another aerial attack. Vergil will teleport above you and    |
 |   come crashing down with a diagonal kick. This move is also just        |
 |   begging to be countered.                                               |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Judgement Cut: This is another ultra-cool move. Vergil will charge     |
 |   his Yamato and deliver a sphere of cuts in an area. He can do this     |
 |   when you are close to him or when you are at a moderate distance away. |
 |   If you are too far away he can't reach you. Keep moving to stay safe   |
 |   from this attack.                                                      |
 |                                                                          |
 | - Cloning: Oh boy. Vergil's last trick is to clone himself. His clone    |
 |   essentially acts just like him and he'll be attacking you at the same  |
 |   time as well! This effectively doubles his attacks. However, most of   |
 |   the time the clone will attack at the same time as Vergil. You can     |
 |   destroy these clones but Vergil can make more so focus on Vergil. He   |
 |   only does this near the end of the fight so victory is close at hand!  |
 |                                                                          |

        ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

 Here's a list of all the weapons and moves in the game. This list is in
the same order it is in the game. Note that some moves have LEVELS to them,
which of course make them better. Those levels are in the move names.
 
   
   ABILITIES
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Dante's abilities focus on mobility and being in the right place at
   the right time. Multiple Evade options keep you safe while Angel Pulls
   and Demon Lifts keep the party going!
    

  JUMP
 
  X
  
  Dante leaps into the air.
  
  - A very basic ability... really not too much to say about jumping. If you
    need help with this you're playing the wrong game...
    
  
  DOUBLE JUMP (Requires Jump)
  
  X X
  
  Summons a demonic platform allowing Dante to jump a second time in the air.

  - Another very basic concept. But how the hell does a platform become
    "Demonic"? I don't really wanna know...
    
    
  ENEMY STEP (Requires Double Jump)
  
  In the air, and near an enemy: X
  
  Jump off enemy while in the air. Doing so resets aerial abilities such as
  Double Jump and Aerial Evade.

  - Only useful in VERY specific circumstances. I don't use this much. Maybe
    I'm just not fancy enough?
    

  EVADE
  
  R1
  
  Evade enemy attacks with dashes and rolls. (Can be used on the ground, and
  in the air).
  
  - Your basic evade attack. Very useful. Be sure to master it early and use
    it to string into combo attacks of your own.
    
   
  DEMON EVADE (Requires Evade)
  
  Just before being hit: R2 + R1
  
  Fuelled by adrenaline, Dante's damage output is boosted after the precisely
  timed, last minute demon evade.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage bonus

  - Useful if you want to evade while using demonic weapons. I like this
    evade a lot more than the angelic one due to the increased damage bonus!
    
    
  ANGEL EVADE (Requires Evade)
  
  Just before being hit: L2 + R1
  
  Dante phases through Limbo, granting additional evade distance and
  invulnerable time.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased phase distance

  - Never really used this much as I preferred Demon Evade and don't wish
    to get TOO far away from my foes. Still, try it out.
 
    
  ANGEL BOOST
  
  'Air' L2 + X
  
  Channels Devil Energy to propel Dante forwards in an airborne boost.
  
  - A very handy and often necessary ability. Can of course be combined with
    your double jump for extreme horizontal coverage. Get used to using this!
    
    
  OPHON ANGEL LIFT
  
  L2 + Square
  
  Fire a grappling hook at enemies, or points in Limbo, and lift Dante to
  them.
  
  - Great for closing the gap between you and an enemy. Necessary in all of
    your platforming as well. Good players will use this after knocking away
    an enemy to continue stringing attacks together.
    
    
  PAYOFF (Requires Orphon Angel Lift)
  
  During Lift, Just Before Impact: L2 + Square
  
  Follow up a successful angel lift with a timed uppercut that launches enemies
  into the air.
  
  NOTE: Timing is important to execute the move successfully.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - An entertaining punch move if you have nothing else to do with your
    current Angel Lift. I started using this later in the game to add
    some variety to my attacks.

    
  ORPHON DEMON PULL
  
  R2 + Square
  
  Fire the Orphon whip to grapple enemies or objects, and Pull them towards
  Dante.
  
  - Pretty much the opposite of Angel lift. Use this to pull objects while
    you are platforming. While fighting, use this move when your position
    is safter than the enemies to continue your swordplay.
    
    
  KICKER (Requires Orphon Demon Pull)
  
  During Pull, Just Before Impact: 22 + Square
  
  A timed kick, following a successful Demon Pull.
  
  NOTE: Timing is important to execute the move successfully.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - Another entertaining move, granted you weren't doing anything better
    with your pull. I actually like the kicker better than the uppercut.
    Again, good for variety.
    
    
  LEAP
  
  During LIFT or PULL, just before impact: X
  
  On arrival, Dante leaps off his Angel Lift or Demon Pull target.
  
  - Like the Enemy Step move, only useful in VERY specific circumstances.
    I didn't end up using this much at all.

    
  DEVIL TRIGGER
  
  L3 + R3
  
  A manifestation of Dante's true power, Devil Trigger unleashed sends the
  world into chaos, throwing surrounding enemies helplessly into the air.
  
  - Pretty much puts you in God Mode by making enemies float aroudn you
    helplessly. Use your lifts and pulls and make short work of them. Also,
    remember you have this and be sure to use it every now and again!
  
  

    REBELLION
   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   
     Dante's default weapon and inheritance from his father, Sparda.
    Rebellion will always be with you and provides a wealth of offensive
    choices.
    

  HACKER
  
  'Ground'  Triangle x4
  
  A quick succession of four slashes.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - Your basic attack. "Hacker" is an approriate name. Still, don't get
    caught up in combos too much that you can't pull this out every once
    in awhile. Conversely, do your best to branch out from here!
  

  DEATH COIL
  
  'Ground'  Triangle x2, PAUSE, Triangle x3
  
  Damages enemies surrounding Dante, and clubs a final target with massive
  force.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - The pause here is real brief but still adds a nice area-attribute to this
    attack. I use this one quite a bit. As an added note you can wait for the
    pause and then launch into the extended version of Osiris or other weapons!
    See, versatile!

  
  HIGHTIME
  
  'Ground'  TAP or HOLD Circle
  
  TAP to launch enemy into the air.
  
  HOLD to follow enemy up into the air.
  
  A powerful upward strike that launches enemies skyward.
  
  - Since you can choose to follow the enemy up or not this is another
    good move that offers versatility. Launching enemies into hazards is
    easy here, as is getting into some aerial combos. Make this a go-to move!
  

  AERIAL RAVE
  
  'Air'  Triangle x4
  
  A multistrike combo that juggles airborne enemies.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - Your basic aerial attack. I like Roulette more, but in the heat
    of battle sometimes just pulling out the basic does the job.
   
   
  ROULETTE
  
  'Air'  Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle
  
  A deadly spin that lifts Dante, and his target, higher into the air.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased height gain
  
  - A fun move to use, but mostly useful when there are multiple enemies
    in the air with you. I like how fancy it is

   
  HELLBREAKER
  
  'Air'  Circle
  
  A devastating overhead strike that slams an enemy into the ground.
  
  - SLAM THEM DOWN! This move is great for finishing an aerial string.
    Sometimes just for kicks I use Hightime and this over and over...
   
   
  DRIVE
  
  'Ground' HOLD, then release Triangle
  
  Release a powerful shockwave of devil energy toward distant foes. Charge
  the attack for more power.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - HOLY CRAP what a good move. Seriously. If you want one move that's going
    to seriously help your STYLE rating throw in a DRIVE at least once every
    batch of enemies, ESPECIALLY when you get this maxed up with OVERDRIVE.
    
    
  OVERDRIVE (Requires Drive)
  
  After DRIVE: Triangle
  
  Adds 2 additional shockwaves to the DRIVE attack.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - A complimentary attack to the DRIVE attack. Get it as soon as you start
    using DRIVE regularly.
    
    
  STINGER
  
  'Ground' Towards, Towards, Triangle
  
  Cover great distance with a high speed, lunging stab.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased lunge distance
  
  - A useful move, especially for getting around. Knocking enemies away is
    a pain, granted, especially if you wanted to use Trillion Stabs, but
    still a decent move.
    
    
  TRILLION STABS (Requires Stinger)
  
  After Stinger: Mash Triangle
  
  A blinding flurry of lightning fast stabs.
  
  LEVEL 2: More stabs possible
  
  - If you can use STINGER and not knock an enemy (or a group) away,
    definitely follow it up with this! It just... it just looks SO cool!
    

   
   ARBITER
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  
    A demonic axe whose swings are slow, but powerful.
    
    Arbiter is especially effective against shields.
    
 
  JUDGEMENT
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Triangle x3
  
  A slow, powerful, 3 hit combo.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - Absolutely great for shields and a good early power weapon (I prefer
    ERYX later on). This is your basic attack. I prefer Trinity Smash to be
    quite honest but variety is good.
  
  
  TRINITY SMASH
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle
  
  Dante focuses his demon energy and unleashes a formiddable, triple damage
  strike.
  
  LEVEL 2: Each hit creates a radial ground tremor
  
  - The third attack in this chain is a doozy and looks awesome. Great for
    a line of enemies or if you want to lay down some pain!
    
  
  TREMOR
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Circle
  
  Smashes the axe into the floor with power enough to crack the earth.
  Enemies standing on the fault line are launched into the air.
  
  LEVEL 2: Longer fault line
  
  - I only used this attack sparingly, but it's very useful for attacking
    from a medium range safely and launching enemies skyward.
 
  
  AERIAL FLUSH
  
  'Air'  R2 + Triangle
  
  Hurl the axe at targets below Dante. The weight of the axe makes it
  impossible to aim this attack upwards.
  
  LEVEL 2: Axe head explodes on impact

  - I mainly used this attack for trying to hit distant LOST SOULS, to be
    honest. Using an axe in the air just didn't fly well with me.
  

  DROP
  
  'Air'  R2 + Circle
  
  Drop from the sky with a thunderous strike that cracks the earth. Enemies
  standing on the fault line are launched into the air.
  
  LEVEL 2: Longer fault line
  
  - The aerial version of TREMOR. Didn't use it much, but I can see how it
    would be useful since it can launch enemies.
    
    
  FLUSH
  
  'Ground' R2 + Towards, Towards, Triangle
  
  Hurl the axe head at distant targets. The weight of the axe makes it
  impossible to aim this attack upwards.
  
  LEVEL 2: Longer damage
  
  - The ground version of Aerial Flush. Again, hardly ever used it but it
    did come in handy for getting a Lost Soul early.
  
  
  

   OSIRIS
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    An angelic scythe, particularly useful for dealing with large crowds
    of enemies.
    
    
  KARMA
  
  'Ground'  L2 + Triangle x4
  
  A whirlwind of blades that slashes at enemies surrounding Dante.
  
  - Great for crowds of enemies. Not the most damaging weapon, but it does
    have good crowd control.
    
    
  CLEAVER
  
  'Ground'  L2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle x3
  
  Dante weaves the scythe around his body, cutting at enemies in front, and
  all around, him.
  
  - A fun and stylish move. I like to combine this with Death Coil
    (Death Coil > Pause > Cleaver) when in groups of enemies so I can get
    the spinning scythe action followed by some area attacks.
  
  
  PROP
  
  'Ground'  L2 + Circle
  
  Spin the scythe like a propeller, juggling enemies on its blade.
  
  - This move may very well be overpowered... especially with the SHREDDER
    upgrades. I mean, this move completely makes the enemy your B$!#CH for
    its duration, after all.
    
    
  SHREDDER
  
  After PROP: L2 + Tap or HOLD Circle
  
  Continue slicing and dicing enemies with this extension to Prop. (Hold
  Circle to extend the length of the move.)
  
  LEVEL 2: Can be maintained longer
  
  - Yeah....
  

  HANGER
  
  'Air'  L2 + Triangle x3
  
  An aerial combo of wide, sweeping attacks. Capable of juggling multiple
  airborne enemies.
  
  - A good air move. I prefer Double Up but again variety is good.
  
  
  DOUBLE UP
  
  'Air' L2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle x2
  
  Spins the scythe above Dante's head like rotor blades; lifting him, and
  surrounding enemies, higher into the air.
  
  - A very stylish move and absolutely fantastic for groups of airborne foes.
  
  
  RAKE
  
  'Air'  L2 + Circle
  
  Hook enemies below Dante and yank them into the air.
  
  LEVEL 2: Wider range on hook
  
  - Circumstantially useful, mostly for when you are doing some air combos
    and an enemy walks under you wanting some of the action...
    
    
  RAZE
  
  'Ground' Hold, Then Release, L2 + Triangle
  
  Raise Dante and surrounding enemies in a sweeping, sky bound hurricane.
  
  LEVEL 2: Wider range on launch
  
  - Man I love RAZE. Not only does it look awesome but it can launch you and
    multiple enemies into the air to start some aerial combos. Be sure to give
    this one a try!
    
    
  STREAK
  
  'Ground'  L2 + Towards, Towards, Triangle
  
  A forward lunging attack that ends with a sweeping spin.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increase lunge distance
  
  - I didn't use this that much, to be honest. It looks like a good lunging
    move into a group of enemies.
  

  FEED
  
  Attack enemies continuously to reach full charge.
  
  Osiris becomes powered with devil energy when striking enemies continuously.
  Once fully charged, it grants bonus damage with all attacks.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage bonus when charged
  
  LEVEL 3: Maximum damage bonus when charged
 
  - A good passive ability and one of the few abilities with multiple upgrade
    levels. If you love using the OSIRIS, this ability is a MUST BUY!
    

    
   ERYX
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   
    Powerful Gauntlets, useful for dealing massive damage to a single
   target. Each attack can be charged for greater effect.
    
    
  BRAWLER
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Triangle x3
  
  Unleash 3 brawling punches at a single target. (Hold Triangle to
  increase the damage of each punch)
  
  - A solid three-hit combo. Faster than Arbiter (Unlesh you charge). I
    REALLY like to use two hits and then charge the third one.
   
   
  SLAM
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle
  
  Slam a fist into the ground, shaking the earth and staggering surrounding
  enemies. (Hold Triangle to charge the attack for increased damage.)
  
  LEVEL 2: Larger area of effect
  
  - The slam is a good change from the Brawler, although I hardly ever
    use it. I think I would've liked more punches instead of a slam though,
    but then you'd need to think of another move name!
    
    
  UPPERCUT
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Circle
  
  An uppercut infused with demonic power. (Hold Circle to increase damage
  and cause Dante to follow the enemy into the air)
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - A very cool move. Use this with a charge after a combo to deliver an
   (oftentimes) fatal blow. You can also use this to get foes airborne.
   
   
  SHOWDOWN
  
  'Air' R2 + Triangle
  
  A powerful blow that pounds an enemy into the ground, while leaving Dante
  airborne. (Hold Triangle to charge the attack for increased damage)
  
  LEVEL 2: The target deals area of effect damage when landing
  
  - Your only regular air Eryx move. I mostly used it after Uppercut and NEVER
    charged it since foes often drop too fast.
    
    
  STOMP
  
  'Air' R2 + Circle
  
  Plummet down with earth shattering speed and power. Surrounding enemies
  are pushed back. (Hold Circle to charge the attack for greater effect)
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased area of effect on landing
  
  - Man, STOMP is awesome, especially when you're going down into a group.
    This can seriously build your STYLE meter and points. Be sure to buy it
    and try it out.
    
    
  SNAKE EYE
  
  'Ground'  R2 + Towards, Towards, Triangle
  
  Step back to evade an enemy attack, then counter with a right hook. (Hold
  Triangle to increase the damage of the punch)
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  - An interesting move given its evasive nature before the punch. I had
    fun playing around with this one but still only used it on occasion.

   
   
  ERYX CHARGE
  
  With any Eryx Attack: Hold Triangle or Circle
  
  All attacks performed with the Eryx can be charged up for increased damage
  or effect, by holding the attack button down.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased payoff from charging attacks
  
  LEVEL 3: Maximum payoff from charging attacks
  
  - A cool feature of the Eryx is your ability to charge attacks with it. Be
    sure to try it out.
    
    
  
   AQUILA
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   
    Lightning fast, dual wielded weapons. Their long range and sweeping
   attacks make them devastating against large groups of weak enemies.
   
   
  KILLER
  
  'Ground' L2 + Triangle x4
  
  A storm of thrown blades that slices, and herds, enemies surrounding Dante.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased combo range
  
  - A good basic move. Serious range.
   
   
  BUY IN
  
  'Ground' L2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle
  
  Yank surrounding enemies towards Dante, positioning them for follow up
  attacks.
  
  LEVEL 2: More enemies can be pulled in
  
  - Draws lots of enemies towards you. Great when paired up with something
    like Raze or Stomp or something.
    
    
  ROUND TRIP
  
  'Ground' L2 + Tap or Hold Circle
  
  Send forth a spinning blade that traps enemies caught within it. (Hold
  Circle to charge the attack for a bigger blade, and increased lifetime.)
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased blade lifetime
  
  - This move is essential for opening up Blue Vine doors and dealing with
    witches. It can also easily tie up Ghost Rages and such. Definitely get
    use to this move!
    
    
  SKIRMISH
  
  'Air' L2 + Triangle x2
  
  Effortlessly juggle groups of airborne enemies.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased combo range
  
  - A good air move. Not very much to it and shorter than I would've liked.
  
  
  AERIAL BUY IN
  
  'Air' L2 + Triangle x2  PAUSE  Triangle
  
  Snatch surrounding enemies, and yank them into the air, towards Dante.
  
  LEVEL 2: More enemies can be pulled in
  
  - Pretty much an aerial version of Buy In. I hardly ever used this move,
    to be honest. Try it out for yourself though.
    
    
   CALIBER
  
  'Air' L2 + Circle
  
  A swift aerial dash towards a focused target.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased dash range
  
  - A very cool air move that covers some range and gets you to a distant
    target. Regardless, I didn't use this that much.
   
   
  TORNADO
  
  'Ground' HOLD L2 + Triangle
  
  Slice through enemies as Dante whips forward in a spinning tornado.
  
  LEVEL 2: Can be maintained for longer when holding Triangle
  
  - I got this late in the game but it's a very cool move. Good for crowds.
  
  
  BIG SLICK
  
  'Ground' L2 + Towards, Towards, Triangle
  
  Focus an aerial target, and leap up towards him. Grounded targets in front
  of Dante are also dragged up.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased range
  
  - Haven't even tried this one out yet. Looks like a fast uppercut but I
    suspect I'll still like Eryx's uppercut better...
   
   
  
   EBONY & IVORY
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
   
    High caliber handguns capable of maintaining high rates of fire against
    a single target.
    
    Though they deal low damage, Ebony and Ivory are useful for interrupting
    weak enemy attacks. 
    
   
  SHOOT
  
  Square
  
  Dante fires his dual wielded pistols with lightning speed, at a single
  target.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased damage
  
  LEVEL 3: Maximum damage
  
  - You'll have these beauties for quite awhile and should be used to them.
    Great for aerial foes and keeping your Style up. What else can I say!?
    
    
  RICOSHOT
  
  Hold, the release Square
  
  Infuses a bullet with demonic power. Shots bounce back and forth between
  targets. Longer charges increase the number of potential bounces.
  
  LEVEL 2: Can bounce multiple times on a single target
  
  - Super easy to run around with a charge shot, but I still didn't use
    this that often.
  
  
  RAINSTORM
  
  'Air' X + Square
  
  Dante spirals out of the sky, showering an area beneath him with bullets
  as he descends.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased firing rate
  
  - A really cool and stylish move. Mostly useful in groups. I prefer a
    well-places Stomp, myself.
  
  
  INVERSE RAINSTORM
  
  'Ground' X + Square
  
  A barrage of bullets spray targets above Dante as he spirals into the air.
  
  LEVEL 2: Increased firing rate
  
  - An interesting (and less useful) alternative to Rainstorm.
  
  
  
   REVENANT
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

    A powerful shotgun, useful for clearing crowds of enemies, and
    dealing high damage at close range.
  
 
   SHOOT
   
   Square
   
   A powerful buckshot with a wide spread. Delivers high damage at close
   range.
   
   LEVEL 2: Increased damage
   
   - Man I love the Revenant. It can take down Harpies with a single shot!
     Give it a try and invest!
     
     
   CHARGE SHOT
   
   Hold, then release Square
   
   Powers a shot into a demonic bomb. When released, the bomb sticks to
   enemies and explodes shortly after.
   
   LEVEL 2: Increased area of effect on explosion
   
   - Again, super easy to run around with a charge. The explosion takes a
     bit long for my tastes but it can be useful.
   
   
   FIREWORKS
   
   X + Square
   
   Flip the shotgun around with style and flare, shooting 3 times at
   enemies surrounding Dante.
   
   LEVEL 2: Increased damage
   
   - I really like Fireworks. It makes short work of Rage Spawns and smaller
     foes and is just so damn stylish!
     
     
     
   KABLOOEY
  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

    Fires explosive needles that stick in enemies, and can be
    manually detonated.
 
 
   SHOOT
   
   Square
   
   Fires demonic darts that embed themselves into enemies. The darts have
   no effect until detonated.
   
   LEVEL 1: Maximum of 4 darts
   
   LEVEL 2: Maximum of 5 darts
   
   LEVEL 3: Maximum of 6 darts
   
   - An interesting gun. The last weapon you'll get in the game. Being able
     to choose when to detonate the darts is neat but at this point it's more
     of a luxury than a necessity.
     
     
   DETONATE
   
   While Darts are embedded: X + Square
   
   Detonates all darts currently embedded in enemies.
   
   - Not much to say here. The detonate to Kablooey's shoot!

 Here you can find info on the enemies you'll run into during the game.
Note that these attacks and characteristics are only true for Devil Hunter
mode (I have no idea what they do differently on harder difficulties...).


 o Stygians (Lesser / Normal / Elite)

(-NOTE-) Throughout the guide I just refer to these foes as Stygians. I don't
really pay attention to their "rank"... they are still just cannon fodder to
me.

 Stygians, as noted above, are your typical hack-and-slash cannon fodder.
They are relatively weak foes that telegraph their moves well ahead of time.
They can get in a lucky hit only if you aren't paying attention. The ELITE
Stygians add a tremor move to their repertoire. They get bigger with longer
weapons as they progress in rand but in the end are still just cannon fodder.


 o Death Knights

 The first enemy you'll run across with a shield, the Death Knight is
introduced just in time to try out your newly acquired demonic weapons.
If you don't use a demonic weapon and attack from the front you are going
to waste your time until they counter with a shield bash. They can also
charge up and do a charging move that covers a good amount of ground (it
is very easy to see this coming). Attack from behind or better yet just
use demonic weapons.


 o Ravagers

 You'll recognize the Ravager right away as he has a chainsaw on his arm
and well, he makes a lot of noise. He focuses entirely on offense so you
can often wail away on him. He does have a charge move and various chainsaw
swipes, so be careful. If he catches you you'll be incapacitated for a bit.
Additionally he can go berserk (rage mode) from time to time and be resistant
to all but your heaviest attacks while charging around.


 o Frost Knights

 The Frost Knight is an interesting foe. Besides regular slashes he can make
a line of ice move along the ground that freezes anything it touches in place
(including enemies, by the way). The other thing that makes him interesting is
that only ANGELIC weapons can harm him. Everything else just bounces off, so
have an Osiris combo ready to go whenever you see one.


 o Hell Knights

 Hell Knights are pretty much the exact opposite of Frost Knights. The only
thing you can hurt a Hell Knight with is a DEMONIC weapon. They have a few
regular short-range slash attacks as well as a giant area attack in which
they plunge their sword into the ground and turn it to lava. Boost away to
avoid damage.


 o Bathos / Shielded Bathos

 Bathos (and their cousin Pathos) resemble a cherub, but are anything but
friendly. These enemies will fly around in the air and occasionally throw
grenades at you. These grenades show their blast range before they explode,
so get to safety quick. The grenades can additionally hurt other enemies as
well. You can even knock them back skyward with good timing. Later on in the
game these enemies will come with shields as well. They have very low health
and are more of a nuisance than anything.


 o Pathos / Shielded Pathos

 Pathos (like Bathos) also resemble some sort of Cherub but instead of
throwing grenades they try to hit you with an arrow attack. This attack is
telegraphed well ahead of time and a quick evade should keep you safe. They
also gain shields later on in the game and have very low health as well.
Again, more of a nuisance than anything else.


 o Tyrant

 The tyrant is a big boy that kinda looks like a huge (and ugly) doll.
Still, it can be surprisingly fast. It likes to charge at you (which you can
interrupt with a charged Eryx uppercut) and also likes to jump up and try to
slam into you. Avoid these attacks and counterattack, but be ready to doge as
it also has a short-range slap move if you get too close. I personally prefer
to use Eryx on this guy but that's just me.


 o Rage

 Wow, what a fierce name. The Rage is some sort of animal that, at least on
Devil Hunter, isn't TOO fiercesome. It can do a 2-hit combo attack at will and
can even make quills float up in the air and home in on you for a ranged
attack. You will almost always fight these things in pairs though, and when
one dies the other will enter a berserk mode which causes it to shrug off more
attacks and do a special spinning move.


 o Harpies

 Ugh. These things are annoying. Harpies are of course a flying enemy that you
discover halfway through the game. They will fly in place and occasionally try
to dive-bomb you. They can also through a spear at you with very little warning
or telegraph. They are resistant to grab attacks, although if you spam the grab
move you have a chance to nab them. You can actually blast their wings off and
ground them, although their wings do grow back over time. I personally like to
use the Revnant to ground them immediately and let them play in my ground-combo
games...


 o Witches

 Unlike most enemies witches WON'T try to smack you. Instead, they opt to use
their magic to attack you from range. These attacks include an earth attack by
forming a stalagmite at your feet and launching magic swords at you. They are
also surrounded by a magic shield (which Aquila can just melt away) and can
even transfer this shield to other foes! They have low health and should more
often than not be focused on first when they are in a group of enemies.


 o Butcher

 The butcher is an impressive foe! He's big like the tyrant but looks to be
more machine than monster. He wields a buzzsaw in each hand! He can do a
variety of swipes with these saws but he can also throw them (more than 2!)
at you either vertically or horizontally (high AND low!) if you're far away.
His weak spot is where I suppose his stomach would be, which looks like a
glass tank of sorts that gets redder the closer he is to death. In addition
he can also enter a rage mode and speed up his attacks. Don't get near him
when he's about to die as he explodes upon death.


 o Rage Spawn

 Rage Spawn are just that: children of the Rage animals. They are quite
small as a result (they are just kids after all!) but what they lack in
might they make up in numbers. Or, well... they try to. Honestly you can
just whip out your guns and take care of all of them. They will try to
surround you with their numbers and get a cheap hit in. Use area weapons
like Aquila or Osiris. The Revenant's Fireworks attack is also godly on
these things.


 o Ghost Rage

 The Ghost Rage is a special kind of Rage enemy. Much like the Frost Knight,
the Ghost Rage can only be harmed by ANGELIC weapons. Other weapons will just
bounce off of it. Other than that they act exactly like any other Rage enemy.
They are often paired up with Blood Rages.


 o Blood Rage

 The Blood Rage is the opposite of the Ghost Rage. You can only hurt him
with DEMONIC weapons. He too acts just like every other Rage enemy out
there. He is often paired up with Ghost Rages.


 o Dreamrunner

 Dreamrunners are a good challenge. They are slim and agile foes that attack
with two blades (Wakizashi, maybe?). They will block the majority of your
attacks, but a charged Eryx strike may still get through. They are also very
acrobatic. In fact, the Dreamrunners can create portals to jump into. They
will often wait for a bit afterward and jump out of another portal near you
and attack! Try to charge up an Eryx uppercut and greet them with it when
they attack you.

 Version 0.50: January 17th, 2013
 --------------------------------

 About halfway through the game. I have a feeling I'd be further if I stopped
replaying levels. Oh well. Got most of the items along the way at least.
Also need to go back and post my best times, plan to do that when I beat the
game. This version of the guide is exclusive to Cheatmasters.com.
 

 Version 1.00: January 18th, 2013
 --------------------------------
 
 Finished up the main guide and some other stuff. Still not quite done, but
the guide itself is actually finished. Yea!


 Version 1.10: January 24th, 2013
 --------------------------------
 
 Finished up the weapon section and enemy section. But mostly played a heck
of a lot of Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. What a fantastic game! Not
quite done with DmC though, so stay tuned...


 Version 1.20: February 2nd, 2013
 --------------------------------
 
 Added in a few more tips and some corrections, including an embarrassing one
where I didn't know the difference between Demon Mode and Devil Mode! Whoops!
