Beginner’s Guide – Devil May Cry 5

Our Devil May Cry 5 Beginner’s Guide details some important tips and tricks for you if you are jumping in the franchise for the first time. There are some helpful tips here for you even if you are a DmC veteran so do not hesitate to continue with the guide.

Pick the Right Difficulty

We know that nothing else gives you the ultimate bragging rights over your friends than choosing the highest difficulty but if you are not a DmC veteran, the game will humble you to the point that you will stop playing the game and go cry in your bed. The boss battles are insane and on harder difficulties, they become a nightmare.

If you are just starting with the franchise and you are not aware of how the combat system and other in-game mechanics work, you must start the game on Human difficulty. This is the easy difficult of Devil May Cry 5 and it can serve as a base for you to get comfortable with how the combat system works and how you can master different strategies before jumping in the levels again on a higher difficulty.

Practice in the Void

The Void is the practice mode of Devil May Cry 5. This is an excellent addition to the game where you can spend as much time as you like. Practice combos and different moves. You can also spawn any enemy that is present in the game and try out different attacks and combos on them. Learn how you can chain together different attacks to create combos and go back in the campaign fully prepared.

You can set the enemies to attack you in The Void as well which creates a live in-game scenario but here you can try out different things without the fear of dying and failing the mission. Learn to counter attack enemy attacks and create the best attack combos against each enemy. Once you have perfected your attacks, head back to the game and clear out the levels easily.

Choose Between Auto-Combo On or Off

This is again a very helpful feature for new players of Devil May Cry franchise. With Auto-Combo on, you can simply mash buttons and the game will automatically chain together attacks to create deadly combos. You simply press the corresponding attack button and the attack will automatically chain together and form a combo. You can choose Auto-Combo on while you are practicing other game mechanics such as dodging enemy attacks and evading.

With Auto-Combo off, you will need to manually perform combos on enemies. Devil May Cry 5 has a very complicated but a very cool and satisfying combo system which is highly rewarding as well. Once you have gotten hold of all the basic game mechanics, you can turn off the Auto-Combo and land custom combos to really play the game like it is meant to be.

Collect Orbs

You will come across different colored orbs in Devil May Cry 5 and one of them are the Red Orbs. Red Orbs are in-game currency and you will need them to purchase different upgrades and skills later on in the game. You must try to collect as many Red Orbs as possible because the upgrades are not cheap and they really make the game easier for you to play.

You will find Red Orbs on dead enemies, enemies you kill and even in random locations thorough the level. You will also find some clustered red orbs in side areas in each level. Break these crystals to get the orbs hiding in them. You also earn Red Orbs at the end of every level if you played well in the level.

Purchase Upgrades and Skills

Remember the Red Orbs we told you about earlier? They are used to purchase upgrades and skills in the game as you go along. These upgrades and skills will ensure that you remain on top of your game as you progress in the game and your survival. You will need to spend Red Orbs to purchase these upgrades and skills. There are no other ways of purchasing these upgrades.

You can purchase upgrades from Nico’s Trailer and Divinity Statues. Make sure that you have a good amount of Red Orbs in your inventory whenever you have access to Nico’s trailer or a Divinity Statue. You can also purchase equipment with these Red Orbs. Make sure that you spend the Red Orbs in purchasing upgrades and skills so that you can be better at the game.

Kill in Style

Devil May Cry 5’s unique combo system rewards players who are stylish. This does not mean that players who wear a fancy suit and play the game. It means that players must kill demons in a very stylish manner. Use combos, take grounded enemies to air with you and bring them back to the ground and use different means to kill enemies. Switch between weapons to keep the variety going and earn Stylish points.

In every combo scenario, you will see a letter appear at the side of the screen which is your style meter. The grades are D, C, B, A and S. Your goal is to achieve S in every combat scenario. The rating increases as you use different combos, different weapons and different moves. Always opt for different ways to kill your enemies. At the end of the level, you will earn a rating based on your performance throughout the level.

Explore Each Location

Each level in Devil May Cry 5 is full of secrets and hidden Red Orbs for you to find and collect. Make sure that you explore hidden area in each level to find all secret missions, Red Orbs and one secret weapon as well. You will also find some blue and purple orb fragments in each level which will increase your health and Devil Trigger. Explore each level to the fullest if you want to find all secrets and orbs.
