AUTHOR\'S NOTE

Well, what can I say? A lot of people were extremely unhappy about this game.
I, for one, am not one of them. Sure, it didn\'t \"live up\" to all of the
expectations as \"the best game ever!\", but I never expected it to be. I just
wanted a fun action game after playing Rygar, and I got it in spades.

DMC2 *is* much, much easier than the first one, but that doesn\'t make it any
less fun to play. It just gives you less bragging rights for completing it.
And some gamers only seem to care about bragging rights. If beating Nightmare
3 on DMD is anything to be proud of, then I guess I can be proud. Instead, I\'m
irritated that I took so long to actually even try.

Still, if you\'re looking at this because you wanted to know if DMC2 is a good
game, then I\'ll tell you that \"I like it.\" I don\'t know if you will, but I
know I like it.

If you don\'t know, rent it and find out. If you don\'t like it, then you\'re
not out anything. If you do, then it found its niche.

DIFFICULTY MODES


=== EASY AUTOMATIC ======================================== EASY AUTOMATIC ===
No one I know has been able to find this \"hidden\" (according to the manual)
mode. I tried dying 20 times and getting D ranks on the first three levels
(though I got a C rank on 2 and 3 because I couldn\'t buy items without getting
orbs and I couldn\'t use the items to lower my item rank without raising my orb
rank).

As of now, there\'s no confirmation other than the manual.


=== NORMAL ======================================================== NORMAL ===
This mode has been dubbed Easy Automatic for most DMC players, though those
who haven\'t played the first game often find it as challenging as any normal
difficulty.

The enemies are weak and often would rather stand around than attack you. I
thought for a moment that this was a sliding scale difficulty, but even when
I\'m doing extremely well, the enemies just don\'t want to respond.


=== HARD ============================================================ HARD ===
This is about the tone of normal mode from DMC. The enemies have more attacks
and are often actually motivated to attack you. They are still weak, though.
You won\'t stock up on a lot of orbs in this mode since you\'ve most likely
upgraded your weapons and kill them too quickly now.

You must complete Dante and Lucia\'s game on Normal to unlock Hard Mode.


=== MUST DIE MODE ========================================== MUST DIE MODE ===
This is where the game really picks up. The enemies take less damage and now
have a devil trigger of their own. That\'s right, they can now do some major
damage to you and take none themselves. The bosses also have a wider range of
attacks, including all of them being able to attack if a boss has multiple
forms.

Must Die is unlocked when hard mode is completed.

STORY

(from the Devil May Cry 2 manual)
  In ancient times, a religion arising somewhere east of the Mediterranean
  Ocean split into many different factions. Its disciples quickly carried it
  to western Asia, Europe, and North Africa. As time passed, some gods from
  the various sects were forgotten, others were assimilated into other
  religions, and still others were shunned as evil.

  For one reason or another; the gods all disappeared. What few people
  continued worshipping them were branded as heretics. The dissenters were
  forced to turn their backs on their own homelands in order to continue their
  beliefs.

  Venturing farther and farther away, the outcasts eventually found themselves
  adrift in an unknown land floating on the outskirts of the New World. This
  was Dumary Island.

  Hordes of refugees of different races, beliefs and languages crossed over to
  the island. The first to arrive followed the sea routes of the old Viking
  explorers, around the North Pole and through the Pacific Ocean. Following
  them came runaway slaves seeking sanctuary.

  The newcomers all had a single common point--belief in a pagan religion.
  Tribes that had historically skirmished over old differences running deep in
  their cultures now lived together peaceably on the same island.

  As the generations passed, the former strangers blended together into a
  single people. Their mix of different languages, ethnic customs and various
  gods gave birth to new, totally unique religions.

  The gods worshipped by the new blend of people were an ancient family of
  beings inhabiting a different dimension. They wielded strange powers and
  existed outside the concepts of right and wrong. Deities that were
  considered evil or pagan in the old world were, on Dumary Island, simply
  thought of as \"other gods\"--there were far too many of them to count. Rites
  performed in honor of these idols often resembled exorcisms and demon
  sealing ceremonies.

  The priests of these cults were known as \"guardians\" and were sometimes
  called upon to protect the gods and their worshippers. Many were the legends
  of the guardians who had borrowed the power of their own gods to defeat
  enemy gods. One recent tale, only a few hundred years old, told of a great
  swordsman appearing from \"the outside\" to aid in exorcising the most evil
  god of all time.

  Over the centuries, Dumary Island\'s success in supporting the worship of
  unique religions while maintaining its existence out of the mainstream has
  been nothing short of miraculous. Lately, however, agents of international
  corporations have begun infiltrating the island. Their purpose is to acquire
  the \"special ores\" discovered in the island\'s interior.

  On Dumary Island, the people\'s simple religious piety, as well as the
  fabulous artifacts buried in the inner mountains, are now in great danger.

WALKTHROUGH : DANTE

This is a complete walkthrough for Dante\'s Disc. Read only if you want to be
spoiled. While the difficulty will change with Hard and Must Die modes, the
actual walkthrough and general strategies do not. Enemies get harder and
attack more, but you still do everything the same as you did before.

=== MISSION 1 ================================================== MISSION 1 ===
                              Toward the north,
                          the hunter of dark blood
                          will realize his destiny.
              - \"Guidepost for the Hunters\" Chapter 1 Clause 3
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Break the statue and get the Red Orb from it. Go to the pillar to the left
  and breat the statue there for another one. Go down the small alley to the
  left of the building to get a large one from the face. Next, run around the
  right of the building and continue on. Break the statue and continue. Enter
  the small flag tower and get the large red orb. Continue along the walkway.

  Jump over the gate and jump up on top of the big head on the wall for some
  Orbs. Go up to the archway. Run up the wall and then jump in the air to get
  a Blue Orb fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 1 ]

  Just past the arches, jump up on the train to get more orbs. Continue
  forward until you see a cut-scene.

  Stylishly kill the Agonofinis and continue. Walk into the street and jump up
  to get the red orb over the door on your left. Continue down the street and
  kill the Puia\'s that appear. Search the big door (Circle) to find Secret
  Room 1.

    [ Secret Room Level 1/21/41 ]


  Go down the left roadway. You can jump into the waterway to collect orbs if
  you like. Okay, jump over the small building blocking the road and examine
  the door on the opposite side to find another secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 2/22/42 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 2 ]

  I\'d also recommend searching on the rooftops to find some more. Kill the
  Agonofinis as they come. Take a turn and the next bend. Kill the Agonofinis
  when you\'re blocked in. See the statue? Jump into the waterway and get the
  Blue Orb fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 3 ]

  Jump up through the porticulis to get the red orb. Kill the Msira\'s and get
  the key.

    [ Gate Key Acquired. ]

  Open the porticulis on the ground and get the red orb. Go through the large
  door at the end of the alley.

AREA B
  Search the rooftops and the streets for orbs. When you\'ve got them all
  (including the reb orb generator), go up the path at the end of the street
  to finish the mission.


=== MISSION 2 ================================================== MISSION 2 ===
                          The aerial heart will
                       give the hunter the chance
                           to reach the skies.
               -\"Guidepost for the Hunter\" Chapter 1 Clause 6
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Walk down the hallway and destroy the mask with your sword. Run down the
  steps.

AREA B
  Jump down to the lower area. Break the mask here and get the red orb.
  Kill the Agonofinis there. Continue around the corner and break the next
  mask. Keep attacking the Orb Generator and get the orbs. Search the coffin
  on the back wall to find a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 3/23/43 ]

  Keep going. Break the next mask to open the wall. Kill the Flambats here.
  Break the mask and walk over the newly opened area to break through the
  floor. Get the orbs and the Blue Orb Fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 4 ]

  Jump out and go through the big door.

AREA C
  Walk up to the door and search it. Get away before the hand grabs you and
  stand on the glowing area. Destroy the spheres as the floor changes. After
  destroying eight of them, the door will be cleansed. Go through it.

AREA D
  Go around the corner and kill the pyromancers in the pit. Jump out and break
  the statue. Get the blue orb fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 5 ]

  Kill the Savage Golem (killing it several times is a good way to stock up
  orbs early on, though you\'ll pay when it comes to gametime when you complete
  the mission). Head back to the main hall. Go through the right side and
  break the statue there. Head back towards the entrance and kill the
  Firebats. Break the statue. Go to the opposite side and kill the
  Pyromancers. If you fall in the hole, kill the golems. Break the mask to
  open the door. Look in the coffin to the left of the orb to find a secret
  room.

    [ Secret Room Level 4/24/44 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 6 ]

  Go down the hallway and go through the door.

AREA E
  Kill the Agonoginis and the Pyromancers.

  +--+ Boss Battle : Goatlings +---------------------------------------------+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   Giant demonic human-goat things.                                       |
  |                                                                          |
  |  Attacks:                                                                |
  |    Fireballs - They shoot fireballs at you.                              |
  |    Slam      - They flip and kick you.                                   |
  |    Swipe     - They swipe you with their arms and knock you back.        |
  |                                                                          |
  |  Strategy:                                                               |
  |    The easiest way to kill these is to double-jump up and thwack them a  |
  |    couple of times in the air. They will fall to the ground. Then, attack|
  |    them normally. They don\'t actually have too much life (which is good  |
  |    since they become normal enemies soon).                               |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Get the AerialHeart.

    [ AerialHeart acquired.]

  Use your devil trigger and fly up through the opening.


=== MISSION 3 ================================================== MISSION 3 ===
                        The key to the next journey
                                 begins and
                               ends with death.
             - \"Guideposts for the Hunter\" Chapter 2 Clause 4
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Move up the street. Instead of talking the street in front of you, continue
  backwards to the dead-end. Jump up on the larger pillars for some red orbs.
  Also get the blue orb fragment from the balcony area.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 7 ]

  Kill the enemies and continue down the main street now.

  After the cut-scene, roll down the street and kill the Goatling. Now, head
  back up and get the orbs you missed. On the right side of the street, about
  half-way down, there\'s a door that you can enter for a secret.

    [ Secret Room Level 5/25/45 ]

  Enter the doorway to the station (the one with the red orb on it).

AREA B
  +--+ Boss Battle : Orangguerra +-------------------------------------------+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   Orangguerra is a huge monkey from hell.                                |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Ball Roll     - Rolls into a ball and attacks.                         |
  |   Grab \'n Smash - Grabs you and squashes the life out of you.            |
  |   Whack!        - Knocks you away with a swipe of his arm.               |
  |   Energy Bubble - Blows an energy bubble at you.                         |
  |                                                                          |
  | Strategy:                                                                |
  | This boss is pretty simple. Make sure that you make use of the pillars   |
  | when it goes into it\'s rolling ball mode so that it can\'t hit you. If    |
  | you\'re out in the open when it makes the drop, then roll to the side and |
  | it should miss you (unless something gets in your way). I wouldn\'t       |
  | recommend using your targetting on the boss since it will often target   |
  | the Msiras instead if they get close.                                    |
  |                                                                          |
  | If it\'s climbing up on the ceiling, then target and fire Ebony and Ivory |
  | until it falls to the ground. Then jump up and hit it where the target   |
  | is pointing with a three hit combo.                                      |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Get the Station Key.

    [ Station Key acquired. ]

  Exit the station and use the key on the ornate door nearby.


=== MISSION 4 ================================================== MISSION 4 ===
                    She has many arms but only one heart,
                        as she waits for the hunter
                            deep in the water.
             - \"Guideposts for the Hunter\" Chapter 4 Clause 5
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Run up the street. The first secret room is the first door on your left.

    [ Secret Room Level 6/26/46 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 8 ]

  Continue down the street. Jump up on the ornamental carvings on the wall for
  an orb. Also get the one on the large door. Continue down the rocky roadway.
  Kill the Msiras and jump up on the stone blocks on either side of the road
  to get a red orb and a blue orb.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  Continue to the bottom of the hill and kill more Msiras. Break the boards
  over the door and continue.

  On the left side of the cliff, jump up the ledges until you get the blue orb
  fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 9 ]

  Now, jump over to the buildings to get another red orb. Follow the docks
  back towards the entrance for some more and to find a red orb generator.
  Once it\'s empty, search the door for a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 7/27/47 ]

  Run back down the path and jump up on the scaffolding to get the orbs. Enter
  the doorway.

  Kill the Agonofises and go through the door at the top of the stairs. Get
  the orb and jump up on the engine. Jump up to the ceiling structure to get a
  gold orb. Jump down and get the Quick Heart.

    [ QuickHeart acquired. ]

  Exit the room. Jump down and kill the Agonofises and go through the door.

AREA A
  Hit the object out front and use your devil trigger to use the QuickHeart.
  Go down the waterfront and through the gate. Get the orb near the garage and
  then climb up the stairs for another. Go through the door.

AREA C
  +--- Boss Battle : Jokatgulm ------------------ Boss Battle  : Jokagulm ---+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   Jokatgulm is a giant squid-like creature.                              |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Tentacle Slam - Hits you with a tentacle.                              |
  |   Poison Breath - Spits poison fumes at you.                             |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Okay, there\'s a lot of tentacles to jump over, but it\'s actually not   |
  |   much of a problem.                                                     |
  |                                                                          |
  |  All you have to do is get in the middle of them and attack the head.    |
  |  Use your devil trigger and the boss will die easily and you won\'t take  |
  |  much damage at all.                                                     |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Go into the doorway to get the shotgun and end the mission.

    [ Sub-Weapon Shotgun acquired. ]


=== MISSION 5 ================================================== MISSION 5 ===
                             Close to your eyes,
                         but far-off in your mind,
              the hunter must learn to the value of options.
             - \"Guideposts for the Hunter\" Chapter 5 Clause 4
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Move forward until you\'re trapped. Kill Freki&Geri. When you\'ve done that,
  continue forward up the ramp. Kill the Blood Goats and Puias. Search the
  door to the right of the ruined highway for a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 8/28/48 ]

  Now, head down to the tunnel.

AREA B
  When you come out, you\'ll get to fight some Homromsira and an Orangguerra.

    [ Secret Room Level 9/29/49 ]

  Jump over the truck at the end of the road.

AREA C

  of them and wail on them with your sword. When they start firing their
  machine guns, jump and take them out with the shotgun. Enter the door near
  the first tank for a secret.

    [ Secret Room Level 10/30/50 ]

  |   A helicopter infested by an Infestant.                                 |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Machine Guns - These don\'t do much damage, but they knock you down.    |
  |   Missiles     - Do a heafty amount of damage AND stun you.              |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Okay, this is an easy boss. Make sure you have your shotgun equipped.  |
  |   Double-jump and keep shooting it. When it fires its missiles, just     |
  |   stay on the ground and jump them. Then jump up and continue shooting   |
  |   it. You shouldn\'t even get hurt unless you mistime a jump.             |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Run to the small area where there\'s no fire.

AREA D
  Climb up the stairs and jump up to get the orbs. Double-Jump up to the next

  |   This time the Infected Chopper is much easier since it can\'t shoot     |
  |   over the banister. Just stand at the front of the building and shoot   |
  |   it with your shotgun.                                                  |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Continue jumping as the building burns. Higher up you have to jump up where
  the orbs are to climb higher. Keep climbing. Once at the top of the
  building, exit through the doorway.

  |   Simple. Stay near the doorway and jump and shoot it. Any missiles will |
  |   hit the building and are easy to dodge. You\'ll also not get hit by the |
  |   machine gun fire.                                                      |

  |   It\'s just as easy. Time your jumps to miss the rockets. And keep       |
  |   firing your shotgun.                                                   |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Jump down and get all the orbs. Jump over to the building where you\'re
  supposed to (from the cut-scene) and go around the right side. Get the blue
  orb by jumping in the window-washer cart.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  Jump out and climb back up the building. Jump along the path it shows you.

  Jump up on the girder to get a bunch of red orbs. Go into the small doorway
  if you need a Gold Orb. Jump up on the small building and over to the tower.
  Start scaling the tower at the top you\'ll get to fight the chopper a final
  time.

  |   Use the large pillars to avoid any rockets. Dodge in and out using     |
  |   evade to destroy it. Jump and shoot it. No simpler way to put it.      |
  |                                                                          |
  |   Just make sure to dodge the missiles as they come or they may knock    |
  |   you down a couple of floors. This is one of the easiest bosses in the  |
  |   game...it just has a lot of health.                                    |

  |   Nefasturris is a huge building-sized lifeform. It\'s one of the coolest |
  |   boss designs in the game, but is sadly one of the easiest bosses, even |
  |   on DMD.                                                                |

  |   Form 1: Nefasturris                                                    |
  |     Breath attack - Shoots an electrical beam from its mouth.            |
  |   Form 2: Nefasvermis                                                    |
  |     Debris - Debris flies at you.                                        |
  |     Swipe  - Attempts to swipe you with its arm.                         |
  |   Form 3: Nefascapitis                                                   |
  |     Lotsa Lasers      - Evade to the side of him and shoot him in the    |
  |                         side of the head.                                |
  |     Electric balls    - Evade them and continue shooting him.            |
  |     Horizontal Lasers - Jump them or roll under them, depending on the   |
  |                         height. Shoot him while doing so.                |
  |     Vertical Lasers   - Just evade to the side and shoot him.            |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Nefasturris comes in three flavors...                                  |
  |                                                                          |

  |     All you have to do is jump over his breath attacks and shoot him     |
  |     with your shotgun. Simple.                                           |
  |                                                                          |
  |   Form 2: Nefasvermis                                                    |
  |     Okay, he\'ll do a little damage if you get near his flailing arms.    |
  |     Strafe around him and shoot him and he\'ll go down quickly.           |
  |     Basically, you\'re attacking his appendages...I guess (it still       |
  |     targets his head, but the enemy data comes up as his appendages).    |
  |                                                                          |
  |   Form 3: Nefascapitis                                                   |
  |     The strategy is simple. If it plops down on the ground, it\'s about   |
  |     shoot a lot of lasers at you. Just evade to the side and go in for   |
  |     the kill. Next, if it\'s floating, it will most likely either shoot   |
  |     electrical balls at you, or it will do its hor/vert laser attack.    |
  |     Both are easily avoided by evading. Just keep whittling away its     |
  |     life when it starts its multiple laser attack.                       |

  Run down the path and search the door with an eye to find a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 14/34/54 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 15 ]

  Continue down the path and kill the Agonofinises and the Goatlings. Keep
  going until you go through the arches.

AREA B
  Kill the Gbusmsira\'s and jump down into the next room. Hit the orb and then
  jump up and get the orbs. Make sure you jump into the holes that have orbs.
  The one to the right of the main entrance has a bunch of red orbs in it.
  Smack the orb in the center of the room to turn it. Leave the room.

  Break the two statues and switch to your devil trigger with QuickHeart and
  run down the hall (if you don\'t, you\'ll have to fight some golems). When the
  spikes fall, wait and then bash at the door. Run back to safety and then
  bash some more until it breaks. Jump on the spike lift and go down a small
  corridor. Get the Merciless.

    [ Weapon Merciless acquired. ]

  Go through it. Break the statues and climb up the stairs. Jump down into the
  main room. If you jump on the small platform along the wall left of the
  door, you\'ll get some red orbs. Jump up to the next platform and search the
  relief to find a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 15/35/55 ]

  Jump along the platforms to get to the very top of the room (not where the
  orb is located). Run down the small hallway and get the Submachine Guns.

    [ Sub-Weapon: subMachine Guns acquired. ]

  Exit and smash the orb. Jump on the platform. Jump off and go down the
  hallway. Break the orbs. Okay, this next part is annoying. You need to break
  the stones so that you have time to run to the next room and get the
  HealingHeart. Wear down the first two by not targetting them. Then switch to
  your devil trigger with the QuickHeart and smash the last one. Run and get
  the Healing Heart.

    [ HealingHeart acquired. ]

  Jump in the hole.

AREA C
  +--+ Boss Battle : Bolverk +-----------------------------------------------+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   Bolverk has Freki&Geri with him so he\'s annoying to target.            |
  |                                                                          |

  |   He swings his sword around a lot, so just keep your distance and use   |
  |   your submachine guns to gain some devil trigger back.                  |
  |                                                                          |

  |   He\'s just annoying. He\'ll sit there and swing his sword around and tag |
  |   you out of the air. The main thing to do is keep your distance and     |
  |   use your Devil Trigger when you have it. When you don\'t, stay as far   |
  |   away as possible and shoot him to regain it. There\'s a health orb up   |
  |   on the throne for when you get low, as well.                           |

  Walk up to the seal.

                    the protector meet, the last mystery
                         will be given and received.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Search the large door right behind you to find a secret room.

  [ Secret Room Level 16/36/56 ]
  [ Blue Orb Fragment 16 ]

Jump down to the large room.

+--+ Boss Battle : Protector +----------------------------------------------+
| Description:                                                               |
|   The Protector is a giant orb that spawns Sargassos. It has a ring of     |
|   power boxes swirling around it.                                          |
|                                                                            |
| Attacks:                                                                   |
|   Only the Sargassos attack. Usually they just spit energy at you.         |
|                                                                            |

|   The energy ring around the Protector is annoying because it will knock   |
|   you down and as you\'re getting up, will often knock you down again.      |
|   Still, it\'s not that difficult to beat. The key is to get it down to     |
|   one Sargasso (if you kill them all, it will just spawn more). That way   |
|   you\'ll target them less. Then, just smash the energy boxes. When         |
|   they\'re all destroyed, a hole will open in the floor.                    |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Jump into the hole. Run down the hallway and break the urns. Behind the
first one, search the wall for some red orbs. Behind the last  one on the
left, search the wall to find a secret room.

  [ Secret Room Level 17/37/57 ]

Enter the door at the end of the hall.

|   The Plutinian is a giant, two-headed suit of armor with two huge maces   |
|   that it uses to brain its victims.                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Attacks:                                                                   |
|   Ball Swing - It swings a ball around in a circle to knock you away.      |
|   Ball Smash - Smashes the balls together for a lot of damage.             |
|   Laser Show - Lasers shoot out of the walls.                              |
|   Summoning  - Summons Agonofinses to help him out.                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
|   I did it the simple way. I used my rocket launcher from a distance to    |
|   take down it\'s life quickly. Then I switched to my Devil Trigger and     |
|   ran in to stylishly finish him off. It was an easy battle.               |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Step into the small hole that opens up and take the elevator.

AREA A
  Search the doors on the left side of the area to find a secret room.

  [ Secret Room Level 18/38/58 ]
  [ Blue Orb Fragment 17 ]

  Go through the archway near the item statue and kill the AbyssGoats. Take a
  right down the street and jump up on the rooftops. Jump up on the tall
  building near where you fought the AbyssGoats. Double-jump (or DT and fly
  up) to smash the orb.

    [Orb 1 Triggered]

  Continue on until you reach the area where you first fought the Msiras to
  get the key (on Mission 1). Kill the Brontomancers, Pyromancers, and various
  types of Msiras here and smack the orb around.

    [Orb 2 Triggered]

  Jump out and go up the small path. Kill the Savage Golems and the
  Demonochoruses here and smack the orb up.

    [Orb 3 Triggered]

  Move down the street until you see a path off to the left. Follow it and
  kill the enemies there. Fly up to the ornamental carving for a blue orb
  fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 18 ]

  Smack the orb in the air.

    [Orb 4 Triggered]

  Enter the large door nearby.

  |   An old friend is back from the Abyss. It\'s Phantom, the giant spider   |
  |   from the first game.                                                   |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Claw         - This attack will take off quite a bit of damage and     |
  |                  stun you for a second.                                  |
  |   Tail         - This is a multiple attack that doesn\'t seem to do a lot |
  |                  of damage, but definitely stuns you for a second.       |
  |   Fireball     - Just evade this simple attack. He\'ll shoot three of     |
  |                  them.                                                   |
  |   Fire Pillars - Sometime he will smash the ground and pillars of flame  |
  |                  will appear. Just double-jump to evade them.            |
  |   Energy Blast - He will charge and let a blast of energy go. Just avoid |
  |                  it and go in for the kill.                              |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Okay, first of all, use your Devil Trigger and take off as much as you |
  |   possibly can. Then, switch to your rocket launcher and start taking    |
  |   off more. You can jump on top of him and attack like in the first, but |
  |   this time he is a little smarter and will automatically initiate his   |
  |   tail attack to get you off of him.                                     |
  |                                                                          |

              - \"Guideposts for the Hunters\" Chapter 11 Clause 9
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Smack the central eye. Now, find the mound with a dead eye on it. Knock one of
the Msiras onto it to get the ChronoHeart.

  [ ChronoHeart acquired. ]

Okay, now that you have it, start killing them as fast as you can. It will
most likely take you two tries if you didn\'t get the ChronoHeart right off.
The enemies keep coming.

If you don\'t do it the first time, the enemies will get progressively easier
on Normal mode. If you don\'t do it the first time on Hard and DMD mode, you\'ll
still be in for a hefty battle.

Jump into the center of the thing.

=== MISSION 16 ================================================ MISSION 16 ===

              - \"Guideposts for the Hunters\" Chapter 12 Clause 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Walk up to the door and then kill the BloodGoats as they appear. Go through
  the door.

AREA B
  Kill the various finises that attack you in the elevator. In suck close
  quarters, you should have Showtime in no time. Exit the door when they\'re
  all dead.

AREA C
  Break the vases for some red orbs. Run down the hall. If you need to buy
  anything or upgrade, then do so. Otherwise, take the left hallway and go
  through the door.

AREA D
  Run down the hall and get the orbs in the small room. Next, continue down
  the hall to a door and head on through.

AREA E
  Okay, this room can be annoying. If you get touched by the balls, you\'ll be
  transported to a sub-realm where you have to kill the two Savage Golems. The
  easiest way to do this is to get out of the Mortofinises reach and use your
  rocket launcher. When you get to the end of the hall, jump up and get the
  Sacrilege.

    [ Sacrilege acquired. ]

  Jump down and go through the door below it to find a Secret Room.

    [ Secret Room 19/39/59 ]

  Run all the way around the upper balcony and get the Blue Orb.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  Jump down and put the Sacrilege into the statues mouth.

AREA F
  Head back toward the elevator. Walk down the hall and you\'ll fight Bolverk
  and Freki&Geri again. Kill him to get another Sacrilege.

    [ Sacrilege acquired. ]

  Use it on the door.

AREA G
  The area has changed again. Go past the Msiras and down the small hallway
  near the Msiras and go down it. You\'ll have to fight some Blood Goats to get
  another Sacrilege.

    [ Sacrilege acquired. ]

  Put it in the mouth and exit the room.

AREA H
  Go to the only area that you haven\'t been to yet and go through the door.
  Smash the orb and kill the AbyssGoats. Get the FrostHeart.

    [ Frostheart acquired. ]

  Okay, head back to where you fought the Abyssgoats to get the Sacrilege and
  go through the door in the back of that room.

AREA I
  Take the elevator and kill all the enemies inside. Get off at the top.

  |   This thing has three different faces that it rotates around. Each one  |

  |   I did it the easy way. I just sat back and used the rocket launcher to |
  |   take out the faces. Just evade them when they get close and keep       |
  |   firing and you should be fine. When they converge into a single face,  |
  |   make sure that you watch it charge. Then evade as it fires to avoid    |
  |   the huge attack. Just keep on firing and you\'ll take it out.           |
  |                                                                          |
  |   It has two full bars of life to annoy you with.                        |

+--+ Boss Battle: Argosax the Chaos +----------------------------------------+
| Description:                                                               |
|   Argosax the Chaos is a algamation of all of the bosses that you\'ve       |
|   fought so far.                                                           |
|                                                                            |
| Attacks (Orangguerra):                                                     |
| Attacks (Furiataurus):                                                     |
| Attacks (Phantom):                                                         |
| Attacks (Nefasturris):                                                     |
| Attacks (Jokatgulm):                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
|   Okay, on normal and hard mode, it has a lot of life, but it will only    |
|   attack when in focus, so it\'s easy to strafe in and out of its view and  |
|   whittle it down slowly without taking any damage.                        |
|                                                                            |
|   On Dante Must Die mode, all the heads will be attacking whether they are |
|   in focus or not, so evading and jumping are necessary. In DMD mode, this |
|   boss is annoying and difficult not so much because it\'s hard to kill,    |
|   but because its life is so huge and it has so many attacks. Think        |
|   Nightmare 2 on Hard (from the first DMC) and you know what you\'re up     |
|   against.                                                                 |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+


+--+ Boss Battle: The Despair Embodied +-------------------------------------+
| Description:                                                               |
|   This boss is a firey form which looks very cool, but isn\'t very          |
|   difficult. Though it is annoying on DMD mode.                            |
|                                                                            |
| Attacks:                                                                   |
|   Fireball   - Shoots fireballs at you.                                    |
|   Fireslash  - Slashes you with its sword.                                 |
|   Firethrust - Powerful fire thrust with its sword.                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
|   Constantly keep moving and locked onto it. When you can, use your guns   |
|   to regain some DT. Switch to your devil form and wail on it until out.   |
|   Then, continue firing with your guns and evading its attacks. It takes   |
|   a little while, but reminded me a lot of Bolverk without the reach.      |
|                                                                            |
|   If you\'re having trouble, here\'s a really useful tactic. Save your DT.   |
|   when it attacks, use it to avoid damage. Then get out of it and          |
|   retaliate. Kinda cheap, but it works.                                    |

You have now completed Devil May Cry 2 with Dante. Now go back through it on
Hard and Dante Must Die to unlock more goodies. 99% of everything that I
stated here will hold true on the other modes, you\'ll just have to have faster
reflexes and more skill.

  |   This is actually an easy battle. Whittle off some damage with your     |
  |   daggers and wait for him to jump at you in his ball mode. Then unleash |
  |   your DT and cut him down to size. He\'ll go down in no time at all!     |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Enter the tunnel.

AREA B
  Walk into the main area.

  +--+ Boss Battle : Infested Tank +-----------------------------------------+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   This tank has been infested by an Infestant and is now acting on its   |
  |   own accord.                                                            |

  |   This is simple. All you have to do is get on the bridge and jump and   |
  |   throw knives. It\'ll never hit you. If you want, you can DT and take it |
  |   out quicker. This is especially useful if you are trying to get the S  |
  |   rank for time.                                                         |

AREA A
  Kill the Savage Golems and the Demonochoruses.

  +--+ Boss Battle : Larva and Noctpteran +----------------------------------+
  | Description:                                                             |
  |   The Noctpteran is a giant moth and the Larvae are its worms. Every now |
  |   and again, it will drop eggs to the ground.                            |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks (Noctpteran):                                                    |
  |   I don\'t think it attacks. It just drops eggs and lets the Larva attack.|
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks Larva:                                                           |
  |   Smack  - They burrow out of the ground and smack you. Just evade.      |
  |   Charge - They charge you and swallow you for some higher damage. Evade.|
  |                                                                          |
  | Strategy:                                                                |
  |   It\'s not that hard of a battle, but he does have a lot of life. The    |
  |   main thing to remember is to EVADE. It is so necessary on him that I   |
  |   can\'t stress it enough. Almost any of his attacks can be avoided by    |
  |   evading.                                                               |
  |                                                                          |
  |   You can use your devil trigger to take him down as well, but you       |
  |   should still get an S ranking if you don\'t. I killed him in under 2    |
  |   minutes without using it, and if I can do it, anyone can.              |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

AREA B
  From the cut-scene, you should know that there\'s a blue orb fragment nearby.

  [ Blue Orb Fragment 13 ]

  Okay, time to activate your DT and fly to the top of the pillars. Get the
  orbs there. Now, you need to fly to the ledge along the wall where you just
  got the last fragment. There\'s a huge hole there. Search around inside the
  hole until you find another secret room.

  [ Secret Room Level 6/16/26 ]
  [ Blue Orb Fragment 14 ]

  Jump down into the water and swim under where you got the blue orb fragment
  to get the Bowgun.

                      Holy and filthy at the same time,

  Kill the Auromancers and jump up on the ledge abover where you got the
  heart. Jump up to the next room and break the urns for some orbs. Jump over
  to the right doorway and search it for a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 7/17/27 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 15 ]

  Now go down the right hallway and jump into the water. Swim down into the
  next room.  Swim up into the hole that the cut-scene shows you. Kill the
  Sargassos so that they don\'t interfere. Now, you have to light the 6
  different orbs in this room. Once you do so, platforms will appear. Jump up
  on the platforms and activate the orb at the top.

  Swim back down into the previous room and down the hole. Get any items you
  think you might need and head through the door.

AREA C
  +--+ Boss Battle : Tateobesu +---------------------------------------------+

  |   A big, ugly, annoying fish boss.                                       |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Bite              - Guess what he does.                                |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Just swim around and keep using your Bowgun. It\'s annoying, I know,    |
  |   but you\'ll wear him down. He\'s easy to dodge. When he cloaks himself,  |
  |   just look for the wavery section or he might bite you.                 |
  |                                                                          |
  |   As usual, DT to make it go faster...but, if you don\'t want to get hurt,|
  |   only use your DT when it charges you to avoid getting damaged. While   |
  |   doing this, make sure you keep shooting it.                            |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Swim up through the hole to end the mission.

             - \"Guideposts for the Protectors\" Chapter 9 Clause 9

  Search the small square area right above where you come out to find a
  secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 8/18/28 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 16 ]

  Kill the blades and get the gold orb from behind one of the pillars if you
  need it. Swim through the hole in the ceiling and jump out of the water.
  Walk up to the big eye and examine it.

  Hit the fireball back at the eye three times with your sword to break the
  icon and raise the water level. Kill the Erupt Cells and search behind the
  broken statue to find a Blue Orb Fragment.

    [ Blue Orb Fragment 17 ]

  Swim up to the lit area above the blue orb fragment for some red orbs. Swim
  through the hole and jump out of the water. Get your orbs from the orb
  generator and go down the hallway. Jump into the water.

  Swim down into the next room and kill the erupt cells. Swim forward and down
  through the hole in the floor. Get the Blue Orb and the other orbs.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  Swim back through the tunnel and then up through the hole beyond the
  pillars. Jump out of the water and go through the door.

AREA B
  That\'s right, another annoying \"break the orbs\" puzzle. Examine the glowing
  relief on the wall and jump down to the tiles. Break 8 orbs and the
  waterfall platforms will appear. Jump up to the door.

AREA C
  Kill the Gbuthumiras. Now, the point of this next exercise is to equip the
  weaken the orbs. Weaken them, but don\'t break them. When they\'re all weak,
  break them and run into the next room to get the QuickHeart. Get the orbs
  and run down the hall. Break the statues for some more orbs. Go through the
  door.

  |   The Plutinian is a giant, two-headed suit of armor with two huge maces |
  |   that it uses to brain its victims.                                     |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Ball Swing - It swings a ball around in a circle to knock you away.    |
  |   Ball Smash - Smashes the balls together for a lot of damage.           |
  |   Laser Show - Lasers shoot out of the walls.                            |
  |   Summoning  - Summons Agonofinses to help him out.                      |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Well, you can just sit back and throw knives at him and he\'ll die      |
  |   before he gets to you on Normal and Hard, but I\'d recommend just DTing |
  |   and taking him out quickly. He\'s not hard and has horrendous aim.      |
  |                                                                          |
  |   He\'ll also summon critters that don\'t do a whole lot except wander     |
  |   around near you. They do like to DT on LMD mode, though.               |

|   Just use your daggers and whittle him down. When he heads to the side    |
|   tables, start smacking him around. Make sure to lock onto him of his     |
|   minions will take precedence. He doesn\'t have a lot of life, and is      |
|   relatively easy to kill. The problem is on DMD when the other enemies    |
|   are actually stronger than he is.                                        |

                      will also invite the creepy to play
             - \"Guideposts for the Protectors\" Chapter 11 Clause 7
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AREA A
  Move forward from where you start the mission and get the orb on top of the
  pillar. Kill the AbyssGoats and activate the Trigger Orb by bashing it.

    [ Trigger Orb 1 Activated. ]

  Next, search the door on the left side of the street to find a secret room.

    [ Secret Room Level 9 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 18 ]

  Move down the sidestreet. Jump up on the rooftops and go to the Msira arena.
  Get the gold orb and activate the trigger orb outside of it.

    [ Trigger Orb 2 Activated. ]

  Jump into the arena. Kill the Auromancers and the assorted Msiras. Get the
  Blue Orb.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  Jump out and go down the alleyway near the arena. Activate the trigger orb
  there and continue.

    [ Trigger Orb 3 Activated. ]

  Enter the larger open area (what used to be the pillared balcony area) and
  pick up the Zambak.

    [ Weapon Zambak acquired. ]

  Kill the golems if you must and run down the street. Kill the Agonofinises
  and continue. There\'s a path to your left. If you want to buy items, do so.
  When you\'re ready, take that path. Kill the different mancers and jump up on
  the top sculpture on the building for some reb orbs. Jump over to the ledge
  and activate the trigger orb.

    [ Trigger Orb 4 Activated. ]

  Go through the large door. Whack the eyeball.

  |   An old friend is back from the Abyss. It\'s Phantom, the giant spider   |
  |   from the first game.                                                   |
  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Claw         - This attack will take off quite a bit of damage and     |
  |                  stun you for a second.                                  |
  |   Tail         - This is a multiple attack that doesn\'t seem to do a lot |
  |                  of damage, but definitely stuns you for a second.       |
  |   Fireball     - Just evade this simple attack. He\'ll shoot three of     |
  |                  them.                                                   |
  |   Fire Pillars - Sometime he will smash the ground and pillars of flame  |
  |                  will appear. Just double-jump to evade them.            |
  |   Energy Blast - He will charge and let a blast of energy go. Just avoid |
  |                  it and go in for the kill.                              |
  |                                                                          |

  |   Okay, first of all, use your Devil Trigger and take off as much as you |
  |   possibly can. Then, switch to your daggers and start taking off more.  |
  |   You can jump on top of him and attack like in the first, but this time |
  |   he is a little smarter and will automatically initiate his tail attack |
  |   to get you off of him.                                                 |
  |                                                                          |
  |   Watch out. He can block your attacks as well.                          |
  |                                                                          |

             - \"Guideposts for the Protectors\" Chapter 11 Clause 7
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Smack the central eye. Now, find the mound with a dead eye on it. Knock one of
the Msiras onto it to get the ChronoHeart.

  [ ChronoHeart acquired. ]

Okay, now that you have it, start killing them as fast as you can. It will
most likely take you two tries if you didn\'t get the ChronoHeart right off.
The enemies keep coming.

If you don\'t do it the first time, the enemies will get progressively easier
on Normal mode. If you don\'t do it the first time on Hard and DMD mode, you\'ll
still be in for a hefty battle.

Jump into the center of the thing.

    [ Secret Room 10/20/30 ]
    [ Blue Orb Fragment 19 ]

  Break the vases and run down the hallway. If you need any items, buy them.

  you do that, jump up to the second ledge to get the Sacrilege.

    [ Sacrilege acquired. ]

  Run back and collect all of the orbs. Just above the entry door is a Blue
  Orb.

    [ Blue Orb acquired. ]

  |                                                                          |
  | Attacks:                                                                 |
  |   Frost Face     - Frost breath                                          |
  |   Fire Face      - Fire breath                                           |
  |   Lightning Face - Lightning Orbs                                        |
  |   Main Face      - Huge energy attack                                    |
  |                                                                          |
  | Strategy:                                                                |
  |   I did it the easy way. I just sat back and used the darts to take out  |
  |   the faces. Just evade them when they get close and keep firing and you |
  |   should be fine. When they converge into a single face,  DT and also    |
  |   make sure that you watch it charge. Then evade as it fires to avoid    |
  |   the huge attack. Just keep on firing and you\'ll take it out.           |
  |                                                                          |
  |   On LMD mode, evade constantly to avoid the multiple attacks. Most of   |
  |   the time it\'ll miss you. When it converges to a single face, make sure |
  |   to DT and attack it.                                                   |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  Exit the room through the MOUTH DOOR. Go back in and kill the BloodGoats and

AREA I

|                                                                            |
| Attacks:                                                                   |
|   Charge - Attempts to charge you. Just evade.                             |
|   Grab   - He grabs you and squeezes you.                                  |
|   Tickle - He will grab you from a long distance by reaching through the   |
|            ground.                                                         |
|   Zap    - He sends out small, electrical impulses.                        |
|                                                                            |

|   It\'s going to sound a bit strange, but I want you to get close to him.   |
|   Not too close, mind you, but close enough that the majority of his       |
|   attacks are charges. That way, you can easily evade and then smack him   |
|   around before he recovers. It also makes it easier to judge exactly      |
|   where the electrical impulses are.                                       |
|                                                                            |
|   You can also DT when he attacks and lay into him without getting hurt.   |
|   It\'s a long battle (because of his health), but it\'s an easy one.        |

|   Simple. Just keep shooting it in the mouth. If it swings its tail, jump. |
|   If it vomits, double-jump. Really, really easy...it just has a lot of    |
|   life.                                                                    |

CREDITS AND THANKS

  - CJayC and Shadotak for putting up with my crap for so long.
  - My ferrets for \"helping\" me play by attacking my feet.
  - Andrew Ridgeley, not so much for starting Wham!, but having the decency to
    STOP!
  - Kouli from the GameFAQs message boards. I\'m pretty sure he\'s the first one
    who posted the location of Lucia\'s secret room on level 6. I wouldn\'t have
    found it if he hadn\'t. Thanks.
