Devil May Cry Hints for PlayStation 2
NEEDED:Vortex for Alastor
In mission 4 I believe, the one where phantom chases you down the hall. Start the mission and head down the hall and get to the part where Phantom starts chasing you. As soon as he starts chasing you go into devil trigger and keep using vortex till he leaves. This'll get you 500 red orbs. Save and reset and keep doing it over and over as many times as you want.
To beat nightmare quickly when he transforms into the big bio-weapon and you can see his heart (a round ball thing) use the holy water and it should take off around a quarter of his health keep doing that and attack him while in devil trigger state.
Hope I helped.
To get lots of red orbs that get items and weapon upgrades with all you have to do is get to mission four BLACK NIGHT.
In this mission there is a secret mission after you beat the giant spider.
The secret mission is called PHANTOM BABY II. All you have to do in it is destroy 100 little phantom babys in the time limit without weapons.
But use your weapons so it doesn't count as killing one. You will still get the red orb kill all the phantom babys in the room.
Making sure that you dont kill 100 in the time limit.
Exit the room it will say secret mission failed so go back in and do it again and keep killing them to get the orbs.
But keep failing so you can go back in this can also be done in secret mission Phantom babys but it takes longer.
On the save game screen there is a bit that says "Dante " and a number... This number goes up once you complete the game (Dante 00 - Dante 01 etc) IF you continue from your last file - if you complete normal difficulty then the game will automatically take you to Mission 1 on hard difficulty and although you lose all your items (Devil Stars, Holy Water etc) and only get 1 Vital Star you also get to keep all your life, Devil Triggers and weapons (if you continued - if not then you start with only the normal stuff)...
So, to get to the point... Try to get everything (all purple orbs and all blue orbs) before about mission 20 because the price goes WAY WAY up on hard mode and... i can only imagine the prices on the next difficulties! (for me, now (hard), it's 4000+ for a blue orb)
Quick Guide Part 1
Mission 1 - Curse of the bloody puppits
ok at the start you need to climb up to the castle, on your way take this time to practice and pick up the yellow orb, ok when you get to the castle itself you have to find 45 red orbs (they are scattered around the room) along with a blue orb fragment. ok to get all of the red orbs you need to use wall kick to do this jump at a wall with Triangle then hit Triangle again when your on the wall.
Mission 1 part II
while in this room use wall kick to get up onto the plane in the middle of the room to get your second blue orb, any way in the top right hand corner of the room you will find a sort of button slash it till it lights all up then you will be taken down to the lower levels and will have to fight around 20 - 25 marrionettes these are easy, then return up the lift and fight around 9 more then go through the door and you should clear the mission (try to do this mission within 2 and a half minutes with a few STYLISH combos).
Super sparda devil:
to get this ability you must be in the 22 or 23 mission.in other words the misson were u fight mundis the first time. have the Sparda devil arm in use have some devil trigger gauges full and press R1 u will enter a small cutscene and take a chunck of his vitality.
P.S. you'll have to see how it looks like for yourself.
