    Welcome to my first FAQ! Playing DMC 3, I noticed the lack of detail in the
    synopses for the Secret missions, so here I am to give you the skinny!
    Normally people would have a good 2-3 pages of mumbo-jumbo, so let me
    make this brief:
    *You can use this FAQ for personal use
    *this will ONLY be on www.gamefaqs.com, and now www.neoseeker.com. Anywhere
    else, and we'll have problems
    *any comments/suggestions, or submissions for info can be sent to my e-mail, I
    have no time for stuff already in this FAQ, so don’t tell me what I already 
    know, so save that, and any other discussions not pertaining to DMC 3, or any
    pics of your hot girlfriend, sister, mom, etc...
    Well you can send those :)
    So let’s get this started!
    First off, if you’re looking for any form of tutorial about equipment, items,
    etc, find another FAQ. But let me just list the weapons and any abbreviations
    of them (in parentheses), for the heck of it. Now is the time to let you know,
    that If you're reading this you should know what those are by now... and let me
    take this opportunity to let you know, there are many SPOILERS in this FAQ. 
    Other than that any (sp?) you see would greatly be appreciated if corrected.
    Spoilers begin NOW!!!!!!!!
    Ebony and Ivory (E&I) - Dante's twin handguns, you have these from the start.
    Shotgun - A double barreled shotgun, found in Mission 3
    Artemis - A homing laser, earned after completing all 3 trials in Mission 6
    Spiral - a high powered rifle, Found in Mission 9
    Kalina Ann (K.A.) - a Rocket Launcher you get after Defeating Lady at the
    end of Mission 16
    Devil Arms:
    Rebellion - A broadsword, you have since the beginning
    The others are from bosses of the same name (except BeoWulf)
    Cerberus - A 3-handled Nunchukaus (sp?) utilizing the power of Ice 
    Agni and Rudra (A&R) - Twin swords, utilizing the power of Wind and Fire 
    Nevan - A Guitar/scythe, utilizing the power of Electricity, and Bats (I guess)
    Beowulf - Arm and leg gauntlets, utilizing the power of Light 
    The Secret missions:
    As you can see I made it pretty simple, what to expect after the blue flash,
    and where to find it.
    Secret Mission 1: The Exorcist
    Objective: Defeat all enemies within the time limit. (1 min)
    Enemies: Hell Pride (5), Hell Lust (4), and Hell Sloth (2)
    Location: Mission 3, 15th Avenue, right after the dumpster on your right,you 
    enter through a pair of brown double doors, right beneath some red orbs
    Location of Mission: Love Planet (Where you first fight the Hell Sloths)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: E&I and Rebellion, Swordmaster Style
    Hack at the Hell prides, until they disappear one by one, but try to get rid of
    the Lusts ASAP, since they normally hop off-screen before attacking. Be sure to
    be very attentive to such sneak attacks from the Lusts and the Sloths, Rinse
    and Repeat until it's over!
    SECOND TIME: DT the last 30 seconds if you can, A&R work well here, but it's
    better to stick with Rebellion
    Secret Mission 2: Untouchable
    Objective: Defeat all enemies while taking no damage
    Enemies: Enigma (5)
    Location: Mission 5, Surge of Fortunas, The red-eyed skull sculpture on the
    wall, next to the seal for the elevator.
    Location of Mission: Ice Guardian’s Chamber (Where you fight Cerberus)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: E&I and Rebellion, Any Style
    Use Rebellion's Helmbreaker attack (triangle in the air) while jumping away at
    any arrows fired, the best way to do this is kick the crap outta any enigma
    that starts to spin its arrows. Another easy one.
    SECOND TIME: just like I said before, DT if you can, A&R also work well
    here, but it's better to stick with Rebellion
    Secret Mission 3: Death from Above
    Objective: Stay in the air for 20 seconds
    Enemies: Hell Pride (infinite)
    Location: Mission 7, The Dark Corridor, this is the first room of this mission,
    so go forward, make a right to head to the brown door, but don’t go in. See 
    that torch on Dante’s right? Jump over it (air hike or wall jump, it doesn’t 
    matter) to a red statue in a crevice. Examine it to enter. 
    Location of Mission: Trial of Wisdom (where you earn one of the 3)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: E&I, Rebellion (I really seem to like these combo) Any Style,
    (Swordmaster or Trickster recommended)
    Lure the prides to the corner, and then do the following: wall jump, then
    jump off the back of a pride, rinse and repeat. If going Swordmaster, use
    the Aerial Rave to stay in the air longer, as soon as a pride jumps up,
    jump off of it, and then use Air Hike. If you're a trickster, use the Wall
    Hike. Keep it up until you're done. Either way, you can always use E&I for
    more airtime.
    SECOND TIME: Do as the first time around, but after 10 seconds or so, DT
    with Nevan, and then use Air Raid if you bought it. Laugh from above as you
    get your prize!
    Secret Mission 4: Devil's Teeter-totter
    Objective: Ride the elevator to the top
    Enemies: Enhanced Hell Prides (infinite)
    Location: Mission 8, Leviathan's Stomach
    Location of Mission: Surge of Fortunas (Where you find Secret Mission 2)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: Shotgun, Rebellion. Trickster style
    Yes, I used the so called 'glitch' to beat this one but it as simple as running
    up any pillar on the 4 corners of the platform while it makes the prides
    disappear after a certain distance. Either that, or actually knock them off
    using Rebellion and the shotgun. Another way to get some off, is to jump off of
    the platform then airhike back on.
    SECOND TIME: Same as first. But by then you'll have the Gun Stinger :) Or K.A.
    Secret Mission 5: Destroyer
    Objective: Destroy every destructible background object within the time limit
    (50 items in 40 seconds)
    Enemies: -none-
    Location: Mission 9 (and 10) Limestone Cavern, when entering from the waterfall,
    it's on Dante's right, an opening in which leads to 2 red crystals by the wall,
    examine them to enter the mission.
    Location of Mission: The Bullseye (Where you get the shotgun)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: Rebellion or A&R with any guns or style
    Just keep track or what you break, but this seemed to work best for me: the
    format is like this:
    The first number shows what order to do the attacks, then what and how you
    should destroy them, then how many your total destroyed should be after
    completing the step.
    This is a 12 step program every alcoholic should take!
    1) Break the sign behind you (1)
    2) In one swipe take out both tables at once (3)
    3) Take out the 2 bottles on one shelf (5)
    4) Then the other 3 on the other shelf (Rebellion Combo II works well here) (8)
    5) Then the Last table with a stool (10)
    6) Then the 2 barrels next to where you got the shotgun (12)
    7) The jukebox, slot machines and the 2 barrels (Rebellion Combo II) (18)
    8) The other 2 barrels next to the jukebox (20)
    9) Do 2 Rebellion Combo I's next to the bar, break 15 bottles and a barrel (36)
    10) Attack the rack with the glasses with a helmbreaker, facing the right. (42)
    11) Combo or Stinger the barstools (47)
    12) Jump up and Helmbreaker the last 3 barrels (50)
    You should finish with 3-5 seconds left.
    SECOND TIME: two words: Kalina Ann
    Secret Mission 6: Flight of the Demon
    Objective: Collect every red orb within the time limit
    Enemies: -none-
    Location: Mission 10, Subterranean Lake, behind the statue where you get the
    Neo-Generator, look for a smaller statue to the right of it.
    Location of Mission: Leviathan's stomach (where mission 8 began)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: Any Guns, Nevan, Any style, Devil Star (optional)
    Another easy one, DT with Nevan, and use air raid, follow the path of orbs
    until it splits; go the right path and as soon as you get the 4th one,
    head back over tot he left path (with the white orbs) making your way back to
    the right path. Snatch those up, and then drop along side the wall so you fall
    between the 3 orbs there, catching them all (Do so by letting go of R1) then as
    soon as you hit ground, fly again, this time just getting all those orbs until
    the end. Use a Devil Star if need be.
    SECOND TIME: Same As before
    Secret Mission 7: Hang 10
    Objective: Obtain the Blue Orb within the time limit. (30 seconds)
    Enemies: Hell Gluttony (5)
    Location: Mission 11, Gears of Madness, when you reach the lower door, look for
    a platform on the left side of Dante (if he's facing the door) Jump on that
    platform, then double jump to find an opening in the wall above, get in there,
    and check the red seal on the wall.
    Location of Mission: Subground Water Vein (where the enigmas start shooting red
    arrows, and get evasive for the first time)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: Any gun, Rebellion, any style
    Just DT it! As long as you got enough you can run from the stairs on (you
    should have about 20 seconds left by then) If you get close, and time's almost
    SECOND TIME: It's best to do it in Mission 12, since DT is infinite (or if you
    unlocked Super Dante) Just don’t die doing it!
    Secret Mission 8: Tough Guys
    Objective: Destroy All Enemies
    Enemies: Arachne (3), Large Arachne (5), Hell Vanguard (2)
    Location of Mission: Underground Arena (where you fought Geryon)
    How I beat it:
    Weapons/Style: E&I, Rebellion, Royal Guard, holy Water (optional)
    Use the RG to use! If you have at least Lv 2 you should be in the clear. When
    the first 3 Arachne emerges hack away with rebellion, yet use the RG block for
    all the attacks, this way it fully charges, try to finish them off so you kill
    them one after another, then the larger ones come, fight then using E&I until
    you have killed at least one, then DT, hack one to death, then use release on
    the last, by then the first Vanguard would have shown up. Whatever you do DONT
    RUN AWAY. This will cause them to attack more fiercely with their teleport
    attacks. Hack until you hear the *ding* of their counter block/attack then
    guard (this will trigger your setup for another release) after so keep the
    pain coming (this would be when you’d use the Holy Water) then voila! Another
    blue Orb fragment in your pocket!
    SECOND TIME: Kind of the same, but this time, use Kalina Ann when they are
    open. Also try using Quicksilver, it lets you get a lot of hits in...
    Secret Mission 9: Target Practice
    Objective: Do not let a single enemy escape
    Enemies: Hell Pride (2), Hell Lust (3), Hell Wrath (17)
    Location: Mission 13, Vestibule, once you break the wall and make the left to
    get inside, it's right above the blue-flamed torch on your left, examine the
    red-eyed skull to enter.
    Location of Mission: Temperance Wagon (Where you go right before and after you 
    fight Beowulf)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: E&I, Anything with air hike, Gunslinger (naturally...)
    This one was simple, your best friends here are the charge, rapid shot, and 
    your L3 Button. Charge up and rapid-fire the Wraths, then let loose on whatever
    is left, this, normally being the Lusts, which can take more damage, since the
    Wrath's explosion pwns any pride. Remember if the Lust is on the ground while
    you're shooting it, you might have to jump up to keep the damage going, (or 
    else you'd be hitting the wagon, and it gets away) if they are suspended in the
    air, perfect. Keep them up there. Don’t stop shooting till it's over.
    Here's the Enemy count per wagon:
    1) 2 Wraths and a Pride
    2) A Wrath and a Pride
    3) 2 Wraths and a Lust
    4) A Wrath and a Lust
    5) 2 Wraths and a Lust
    6) A Wrath <- watch out! That one's quick!
    7) 2 Wraths
    8) 3 Wraths
    9) 3 Wraths
    SECOND TIME: Spiral (fully upgraded if possible), Gunslinger
    Strategy provided by raliem from GameFAQS:
    A pretty easy way to pass this mission is just just Spiral with gunslinger style
    (level 3 recommended for my richocheting). Just press O repeatly (bullets seem
    to be heat seeking because they keep going in the way the wraths are coming) and
    the bullets will hit the demons before they even come near you. So if some are
    still alive just shoot them with the spiral again and finish them off.
    Secret Mission 10: Guiding Light
    Objective: Solve the crystal puzzle
    Enemies: -none-
    Location: Mission 16, Waking Sun Chamber, right after you get the Golden Sun 
    item, it's the golden door next to the altar.
    Location of Mission: Vestibule (where you got the Orihalcon to fight Vergil the
    second time)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: Any
    Solve the puzzle. There are 6 different types that come at random. The best 
    strategy is to look for the crystals NOT being lit, and pointing at the main 
    unlit statue. Then follow the beam from where it comes from to where it may 
    possibly go. If you mess up, hit the clock thingy to start over. THERE IS NO 
    WAY YOU CAN FAIL THIS MISSION, some just may take longer than others, though, 
    and with one of them you'll have to break the wall, so be sure to investigate 
    it before breaking anything else.
    Thanks to some Help from Kamran Riaz Khan (kamran_pro on GameFAQs) He is letting
    me use his kick-ass ASCII guide from his FAQ to show the solution to all 6
    puzzles! The link for his FAQ (which I used to beat the game) is here:
    (T)arget Mirrors, where the beam will finish, (M)irrors to be left alone and
    mirrors to (D)estroy, "=" is the destructible wall.
    Just destroy "D" mirrors to solve the puzzle. If on Puzzle 6 however, you have
    to destroy the = wall too.

    +---------+ +---------+ +---------------+
    SECOND TIME: Same As before
    Secret Mission 11: On Pins And Needles
    Objective: Avoid spikes and obtain the blue orb located at the end of the area.
    Enemies: -none-
    Location: Mission 17, Pitch Black Void, go up the stairs on your left, the hop
    on the beams above those steps, to get the red orbs; the one in the middle of
    the bottom row has a glowing statue. Examine the statue to enter.
    Location of Mission: 'Enhanced' Trial of Skill (Where you just came from to 
    get here!)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: any guns, Rebellion,  Anything with air hike, trickster style
    If you made it this far, you have already done this 'enhanced' Trial of Skill,
    but as I did, you should just dash, dash, dash in the direction of the opening,
    doing so to be parallel to the incoming spikes, if your trickster is leveled up,
    more power to ya, also for kicks, try going through about half of it with 
    normal techniques, then use Quicksilver (or DT) for the rest. Score one more 
    blue orb fragment!
    SECOND TIME: same
    Secret Mission 12: Final Ascension
    Objective: Obtain the Blue Orb fragment on the top level.
    Enemies: -none- 
    Location: Mission 18, Road to Despair, on the left side of the giant foot 
    statue (opposite the red orb pedestal)
    Location of Mission: God-Cube chamber (the second room in mission 17, where you
    use a Combat Adjudicator)
    How I Beat It:
    Weapons/Style: E&I, Any Devil Arms with Air hike, Trickster
    Ironically, I only had Trickster Lv 1 at this point, but I got through like 
    The Cube on the left (near where the Combat Adjudicator would have been in the
    original room) has a cube floating from left to right, above it. once it goes
    to the right and hits center, jump onto it, then jump on the wall and wall hike
    straight up (don’t jump off the wall or double jump before then) when you jump
    off the wall from the wall hike, you should be next to a platform that goes in
    and out of the wall about 3 cubes long, use  the air hike to jump onto it, then
    wall hike to the right to another cube the goes into the wall, you should see 
    it beginning to go back in, but then you can hop onto it and run off to the 
    platform with the silver door, just below the fragment. Then air hike off the 
    single cube wall platform, (on the left of that platform; it should be coming
    back out by now) land on the cube moving in a figure 8. As it goes all the way
    to the right, near the right side of the doorway, wall hike straight up then
    air hike to your prize.
    SECOND TIME: Same, hopefully the trickster is leveled up by then.
    Hope you enjoyed the FAQ. I had plenty of fun writing it! Thanks to:
