Devil May Cry 5 innovations



Easy “Backroad” trophy (Devil May Cry 5 Trophies)

After passing the train bridge in Mission 04, you will go through a building and then enter a street. A big fight will take place on this street, and you get a tutorial on how to use Devil Trigger buffs for Shadow and Griffon. At this point, charge up three bars on the purple Devil Trigger gauge (by killing enemies). Then, press L1 to summon a Nightmare (big colossus that fights for you). The Nightmare will come jumping through a wall of a building and you will get the “Backroad” trophy.

Easy “Break A Leg” trophy (Devil May Cry 5 Trophies)

The “Menace From Above” is a large tentacle that comes through the ceiling to attack you. There are multiple of these in Mission 05. The first one is at the start of the warehouse, where you must destroy the second Blood Clot of this mission. It is unmissable because you have to destroy the Blood Clot to advance. However, killing the “Menace From Above” is optional. Just attack it with everything possible. You can focus on it with R1 to see the health bar. If you take too long or walk away, the “Menace From Above” will retreat. Play on the lowest difficulty if you have trouble with this.

Easy “Don’t Mess With The Best” trophy (Devil May Cry 5 Trophies)

Equip the Devil Sword Sparda (R2), and use the Swordmaster stance (D-pad Right). At the final boss of the mission, simply keep pressing R1 + Circle to spin the sword. It will stagger him and unlock the “Don’t Mess With The Best” trophy.

Easy “Eagle Eyed” trophy (Devil May Cry 5 Trophies)

After the first enemy encounter in Mission 09 (where you fight a huge frog-like enemy), proceed straight to the end of the area and jump up the rocks to reach a dead end. A wall will be blocking the path; if you look carefully you can see a gold orb glimmering behind the wall. Press L1 to summon the Nightmare. It will break through the wall and unlock the “Eagle Eyed” achievement. Note: You must have three bars of the purple Devil Trigger gauge to summon the Nightmare.

Easy “Pet Protection” trophy

The only hard part in Mission 05 is the final boss. You cannot let your two shadow pets, Griffon and Shadow, go down. You can view their health bars in the top left corner of the screen. Their health instantly recovers when summoning the Nightmare (requires three purple bars of Devil Trigger). Always summon the Nightmare when your demons’ health gets low. Buy the following skills to make things easier: Griffon Vigor, Griffon Vigor 2, Shadow Vigor, Shadow Vigor 2. This gives your pets a lot more health. The “Trigger Heart” ability is also useful since it makes the Devil Trigger gauge deplete at a reduced rate when you summon the Nightmare — so it lasts longer. Start Mission 05 on the “Human” (lowest) difficulty with the above skills equipped. At the final boss, retreat when he powers up an attack so your pets do not get hit. If one of your pet’s health is below 50%, quickly summon the Nightmare to restore your pets to full health. Immediately press L1 again to make the Nightmare go away. Repeat this when their health drops again. Other than that, you mainly want to attack the boss with Shadow (melee). He does much more damage than Griffon (ranged). It may take a few tries. If you are having trouble, play through the game on higher difficulties first to get a good feel for the boss, then come back to it later on the Human difficulty.

Protect The People trophy

There is only one “hidden” enemy in Mission 01. When you drop down the broken bridge (after the cutscene halfway through the mission), immediately turn around to find a red mantis guarding a Blue Orb fragment. Make sure to kill it. The rest of the enemies are in plain sight. The mission is just one long bridge with enemies on it — you can only go in one direction and the enemies are easy to see. Just kill all of them to get the “Protect The People” trophy.

Easy “Rearm And Repeat” trophy

This can be farmed using checkpoint restarts. The quickest place to farm it is in Mission 15. Play through the trap section until you reach the first Divinity statue in the mission. Go behind the Divinity statue to view a short cutscene of a blue orb fragment on top of a mountain. In this area are seven Punch Line Devil Breakers sitting close together. They only take 30 seconds to collect. Immediately destroy them by pressing L1, then restart the checkpoint and collect them again until you get the “Rearm And Repeat” achievement.

Easy “Seriously Stylish Slaying!” trophy

Most likely, this will come naturally during one of V’s levels on higher difficulties where enemies have more health. To get an “SSS” combos, you must attack with different moves and kill enemies quickly. The character “V” is by far the easiest. He does not fight himself, but lets his pets do the work. Buy V’s “Promotion” skill so you can mount the Nightmare. Enemies cannot hit you while mounted. Attack enemies with the Colossus while also attacking with Griffon and Shadow. A great place to do this is during the first enemy encounter in Mission 05. Even on Devil Hunter, it is doable in this area. On higher difficulties, it gets easier since enemies stay alive longer and you can perform more combos on them. Just attack with Griffon and Shadow without getting hit (no need to summon the Nightmare in this area).

Easy “Slick Moves” trophy

During Mission 15, there are two paths you can take. Regardless of which one you take, they will always cross at the Divinity statues (shops where you buy skills). There are three sections in total where the path splits up and you must navigate some traps to proceed. To get the “Slick Moves” trophy, you cannot take any damage from traps during the free-roam sections. Taking damage from enemies or the final boss is fine and does not void the trophy. To make things easier, run past all enemies in free-roam.

Easy “The Quick And The Dead” trophy

You can defeat five enemies in one second early in the first enemy encounter of Mission 02. Play on the Human or Heaven Or Hell difficulty, and have the “Helter Skelter” devil breaker equipped before starting the mission. It can be bought from the shop. Kill the first three enemies. Five more enemies will then spawn. Let them get close to you, then hold Circle with the Helter Skelter to kill them all simultaneously and get “The Quick And The Dead” trophy. On the Heaven Or Hell difficulty, all enemies die in one hit. On the Human difficulty, you may have to weaken them a little bit first. If it does not work on the first try, restart the checkpoint to retry. Alternately, use Super Nero’s “Maximum Bet” skill. Maximum Bet is a huge shockwave move that kills everything in its path.

Easy “Where The Red Orbs Grow” trophy

After the first enemy encounter in Mission 02, the street will split left and right (there is a yellow ambulance on the street in this area). Take the right path. On the right side of the road, jump up to the hole in a building to find hidden Red Orbs in a room and get the “Where The Red Orbs Grow” trophy.

Easy “Who Needs Weapons Anyway” trophy

First, complete the game on the Son Of Sparda difficulty, and then again on the Dante Must Die difficulty. Completing the game on the Son Of Sparda difficulty unlocks the “Irregular Full Custom” Dante skill. It can then be bought for 100 Red Orbs from the shop. It allows you to completely unequip all weapons. However, you cannot attack with bare fists. Thus, you must complete the game again on the Dante Must Die difficulty to unlock the Super Dante costume, which gives you unlimited Devil Trigger. You can then use your second Devil Transformation to spawn powerful weapons. After completing the game on the Dante Must Die difficulty, do the following:

1. Load Mission 11 on the Human difficulty.
2. Select the “Super Dante” costume.
3. Buy the “Irregular Full Custom” skill.
4. Unequip all swords and guns in the shop.
5. At the mission screen, press R1/R2 to switch to the empty weapon preset.
6. Start Mission 11. Hold L1 to activate Devil Form. Use it to destroy all blood clots and kill all enemies you encounter.

After defeating the Mission 11 boss, you will get the “Who Needs Weapons Anyway” trophy. Note: Make sure there are absolutely no weapons in your inventory, including your sword and Ebony and Ivory pistols.
