How to Unlock Double Kalina

The Double Kalina Ann is a secret weapon in Devil May Cry 5 that is used by Dante. It is created by combining two rocket launchers, Kalina Ann and Kalina Ann II. When Double Kalina is equiped Dante holds Kalina Ann in his right hand and Kalina Ann II in his left. Double Kalina Ann will become unlocked if Dante has both individual launchers.
Where to Find Kalina Ann
You will find Kalina Ann hidden in a side area early on in Mission 11 when you get to the buildings through the gates. To reach it you will first need to destroy some red root clusters to move buildings around to create new pathways and open up new areas. The Kalina Ann is the only weapon in the game you can just find and pick up. Once you have obtained it, Double Kalina Ann will unlock when Dante gets Kalina Ann II at the start of Mission 18. If you missed Kalina Ann, you will unlock Double Kalina Ann on replaying Mission 11 and picking it up.

How to Unlock the Secret Ending

In Devil May Cry 5 there is a secret ending that expands upon the story in the main campaign and will also award you the 'Well I'll Be Damned' trophy. In order to unlock the secret ending you must return to a fight at the beginning of the game that you previously regarded as impossible. This is the Prologue section where you fight Urizen for the first time.
You can double back and attempt the fight against Urizen whenever you feel confident in your abilities. The best time though is after you have completed the main campaign as by doing so you will have expanded the Skills and Devil Breakers that are available to Nero which will result in making fight easier now.
How to Defeat Urizen
Urizen deals an incredible amount of damage so even with Nero's added Devil Breakers at your disposal and his expanded health you still need to avoid taking hits as much as possible. What you need to do when fighting Urizen is focus on damaging his crystal from afar with Nero's Blue Rose in order for Urizen to drop his shields. Once his shields have dropped you need to swoop in and deal some direct damage using Nero's Devil Breakers and/or Red Queen. Make sure that the instant Urizen's shields are restored you retreat and repeat the process. Eventually by continually repeating the process you will grind away at his health until he is defeated.

How to get an S Rank

The highest rank you can achieve in Devil May Cry 5 for a mission is an S. Although it is possible to earn an S, SS, SSS in single combat encounters the maximum rank you can earn for a single mission is the S. Listed below are the three ways in which you can get an S rank for a mission in Devil May Cry 5.
Earn at Least 5,500 Stylish Points in All Battles
To be able to earn at least 5,500 Stylish Points in every battle you face in Devil May Cry 5 you will need to mix up your techniques, continuously adding to your combo, and preventing them from breaking.
Use a Variety of Abilities and Techniques
Using a variety of abilities and techniques in battle will earn you an S rank. This means combining weapon use with character specific skills such as Devil Arms for Dante, summons for V, and Devil Breakers for Nero.
Avoid Breaking Combos and Taking Damage
In order to maintain a high Style Rank in all battles you need to avoid breaking your character's combos. This means not taking any damage from enemies by jumping, dodging, or breaking their attacks.

Practice Combos, Evasive Skills and Parrying at The Void

The Void is the name of a special dimension in Devil May Cry 5 that you can use to get some extra practice to fully understand how everything works in the game. In The Void you are able to pick any type of monster that is in the game and practice the perfect combo to take them out and achieve the highest rating. You will also be able to set them to attack so you can practice your evasive skills and parrying. You can change the difficulty modes in The Void by selecting any story mission on the desired mode and then reloading The Void.

Customise your Loadout

Each of the playable characters in Devil May Cry 5 has several weapons at their disposal at any given time which you may find overwhelming cycling through during combat. Fortunately in Devil May Cry 5 you can customise your equipment at checkpoints and prior to tackling a mission.
One of the things you can do is reduce your equipment to one or two weapons. Playing Devil May Cry 5 is a learning curve, if you are new to the game you will find it easier to start with one or two weapons, and then add more when you become comfortablle with the abilities available to you.
If however you are using Nero you need to remember that some Devil Breakers are better for certain enemies than others, for example, if the mission has plenty of guarding enemies you will want to equip Helter Skelter drill arms to punch through their defense, or if the mission has the teleporting demon, Fury, you will want to equip a Ragtime arm to slow his movement.

Do Not Use Auto-Assist

There is a feature in Devil May Cry 5 called Auto-Assist and it becomes available when you play the game on it's easiest settings. What it basically does is automatically injects context-sensitive combos and moves with you only needing to press a single attack button without any special timing or directional inputs.
The problem with this feature is that it stifles creativity as you become reliant on it and you will not learn how to input the proper commands. This will lead to never developing a sense of special attack timing and you will often find the automatic inputs will often interfere with whatever combo you are attempting to set up. Resist the temptation of using Auto-Assist and learn how to play the game yourself even if it means to begin with missing attacks and botching inputs.
Auto-Assist can be turned on or off at any time by holding the right analog stick on the PS4 controller for a short time, or enabled from the gameplay section of the 'Options' menu.

Unlock Characters and Alternate Costumes

Devil May Cry 5 offers several unlockable costumes that are award when you complete cetain feats in the game. Listed below are the different costumes you can unlock along with their requirment and special ability.
Unlock V's Ex Colour Costume (Jade and Gold):
During Nero's fight in the credits, fight well enough to have a Hell Judecca spawn and kill it. Nico should compliment you. This costume gives you no exta abilities.
Unlock Vergil's Ex Colour Costume (Blue and Gold)
Complete the game on Heaven or Hell mode. This costume gives you no exta abilities. You can however customise Vergil to look closer to his Devil May Cry 3 look in all cutscenes.
Unlock Super Nero
Complete the game on Dante Must Die. Rank does not matter. Super Nero has unlimited devil trigger, and his sword is in a permanent state of maximum exceed. He can automatically load his Blue Rose with explosive bullets but still have to charge them.
Unlock Super V
Complete the game on Dante Must Die. Rank does not matter. Super Dante has infinite Devil Trigger and a fully maxed out Royal Guard gauge. He can siphon his unlimited Devil Trigger into his Sin Devil Trigger, but this still drains normally when activated and there’s a short time span where it will automatically recharge.
Note: Using a Super costume reduces your score by 80%.
