A completionist guide to Devil May Cry 5, including bonus game mode guides. (IN PROGRESS)
I. Starting the Game
There are 6 difficulty mode achievements in Devil May Cry 5, modeled after older games in the series. Lower difficulty achievements may unlock if you complete a higher level difficulty (requires confirmation). Completing all of these achievements will require multiple playthroughs, especially on Heaven/Hell and Hell/Hell game modes. A guide for each of the challenging post-game modes will be posted below.
In addition, there are 3 playable characters: V, Nero and Dante. Several achievements require the you to play a specific protagonist or even all three. I highly recommend playing through the game your way the first time and then going back as needed to collect top rankings, missed story achievements, and the different difficulties. Good luck!
