AUTHOR'S NOTE

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~



Welcome. I was originally planning to finish Airforce Delta Strike but got

disappointed soon enough due to the really crappy planes and sluggish control

response. I just remembered that I played this game halfway but never

finished it. I was able to beat the game in normal within the whole day, and

here, I created a walkthrough also.



I've never played the previous installments but Im really interested about

Dante's cool, 'astig' and really kickass character. Not to mention the

controls here are cool and simple. The game also offers a lot of combos to

experiment with. You can even interchange weapons and guns in real time,

giving you a more intense and action-packed brawl.



Just like the faq I created for Drakengard 2, I'll just outline the main things

you should do in the missions. I'll try to note also some hints about the

bosses if needed. The faq is primarily created during normal mode, additions

will be mentioned on the consecutive playthroughs.



In any case there's something missing, incorrect or an addition about the

faq, don't hesitate to email me. I can't promise to personally reply to you

since Im working on a night shift and I take 2 hour long rides fro and to my

home and office. I'll update the faq as needed and I'll automatically give

you credit on my next update.



Have fun!











I just have one question though.... what if Dante and Alicia (Bullet Witch)

pairs together? .....hmnnn...

ABOUT THE GAME -- DEVIL TRIGGER  

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~  ~ ~



Devil Trigger is like the "super mode"; this transforms Dante and Vergil to

their devil forms. During this mode, all their attributes increases

significantly. Not to mention that they recover HP gradually while in this

mode, which could be very handy in a tight battle.



You need to fill your Devil Trigger gauge, composed of Runes by performing

combos, defeating enemies and/or taking damage. You don't need to have a

full "Rune" bar to initiate it. One rune is enough to activate Devil

Trigger; but in a very, very short time only.





Several bonuses are also added by using different devil arms while in Devil

Trigger mode. Refer to the chart below

ABOUT THE GAME -- WEAPONS -- DANTE    

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~







GUNS

=====



These are your guns. They are great for blasting, combos and anything else

you can think for a gun. And they come with infinite ammo! Can be upgraded by

spending red orbs to increase damage and other attributes.





EBONY & IVORY - Two .45 caliber, semi automatic handguns. This is Dante's

                starting secondary weapon. Although its not that damging

                it is a great way to iniate/ continue an air combo since

                it allows Dante to 'hover' while firing the guns. The

                faster the player presses the fire button, the faster the

                firing rate of these pair will be.





SHOTGUN       - Its slow rate of fire could be its disadvantage but with

                large spread and great stopping power, this is one gun

                that you want to use to tame a large group of demons trying

                to gangbang you. Not very effective to used in a combo

                though.





ARTEMIS       - A laser blaster that can lock-on several enemies at once.

                Players can charge this weapon before firing for more

                devastating shots.





SPIRAL        - A large and very powerful sniper rifle that is similar to

                a railgun since it can pierce through multiple enemies.

                Its firing rate is a bit slower compared to the shotgun but

                fires a fatal concentrated shot instead of scattered

                shells. Great for taking down/ damaging enemies at a

                good distance. You can't target enemies via viewing scope

                though.

        



KALINA ANN    - Probably the most damaging weapon you can get. Very powerful,

                its rockets deal 'splash damage' than can pwn any enemies

                caught within the blast radius. It has good firing rate too;

                but its size could limit your movement a bit.









DEVIL ARMS

===========



These are your primary weapons. use with guns for maximum effectivity. They

deal the most damage since you can execute devastating combos with melee

weapons alone. Can be upgraded by spending red orbs to increase damage

and other attributes. The first four styles are the default ones. Quicksilver

and Doppleganger styles must be unlocked first. You need to beat specific

bosses later in the game to unlock these styles.







REBELLION      - Dante's detault Weapon. This resembles a broad sword but

        MOVE            DESCRIPTION

    +--------------+--------------------------------------------------------+

    | TIME LAG     | Enemies enter slow motion while you can still move     |

    |              | normally. It consumes runes though you can also        |

    |              | activate Devil Trigger. But that will just make rune   |

    |              | consumption faster. Great tech to eliminate enemies    |

    |              | that has surrounded you.                               |

    +--------------+--------------------------------------------------------+







 





                       D O P P E L G A N G E R

                   ---------------------------------

                                



Style that allows Dante to create shadow copies of himself, assisting him in

battle. A second player mode has been added, allowing a 2nd player to control

the shadow of Dante.





        MOVE            DESCRIPTION

    +--------------+--------------------------------------------------------+

    | AFTER IMAGE  | Summons Dante's shadow. It moves exactly like a shadow |

    |              | following Dante's every move. Consumes Runes yet he    |

    |              | can still activate Devil Trigger.                      |

    +--------------+--------------------------------------------------------+                    





!!Note: The two-player mode can also be used in Mission 19, while Vergil and

Dante is fighting Arkham.  









!Vergil needs to be unlocked first by finishing the game once with Dante or

start a new game with a DMC3 save file in your memory card.



!!NOTE: When starting a new game for Vergil, save it as another file. Do not

overwrite you game with Dante since you will lose your file with Dante and

replace it with Vergil.

         a monster carrying a bomb will appear. Do not attempt to slice and

      -- Just kill the enemies and then, boss will appear.





     !!BOSS- HELL VANGUARD





      -- This is your first bossfight. Just go near him, and slash away

         until he parries your attack. Roll or dodge away after the parry

         to avoid his attack. He will be open after that, take the oppurtunity

         then attack again.



         Time to time, he will teleport to a diffrent spot, just follow him

         and attack. When you notice the ground being distorted, immediately

         roll over to avoid his attack. Also sometimes he dashes towards you

         while swinging his scythe.

        --There will be a enemy type here, the Enigma. Just approach them while

         proceed to the end of the path to go inside the tower, and the ice

         chamber. A boss will be waiting.





     !!BOSS- CERBERUS (WK VS. FIRE)





         You may want to stay adistance for the meantime. Or you can just hit

         and run. Rush towards the boss and hit him until the ice on his heads

         chips out. You can also use your guns to do that but this will last

         longer.





         Attacks:



         1. Frost will begin to form in the ground where you're standing.

            Roll over to dodge it. Later in the battle, the duration of

            the ice rain will be longer, prompting you to evade several

            times.



         2. Cerberus will shoot ice projectiles from his mouth. You can parry

            it for some green (healing) orbs if you have good aim or timing.

            He will be open during this attack so if you're not in the actual

            line of fire, you can go to his side, hit his foot and then take

            time to hit one of his downed heads until he recovers completely.



         3. Halfway on his health, he will start to "pounce" towards you,

            knocking you off and dealing heavy damage. You may want to

            anticipate his attack to evade quickly. He will lean back, ready

            to jump towards you. The chains will retract him back, giving you

            ample time to abuse this vulnerability. Keep on attacking him until

            he reaches his original position.

 

         4. Also, he will stomp the ground, sprouting out ice shards from the

            ground. He will also begin to move faster as he nears death.

            

         5. His basic attacks include bite, strike, shockwave. He will do it

            if you stay close to him for too long.







         --you will obtain CERBERUS devil arm as an addition to your basic

           sword.

          its head and keep hitting it. You can still hit it on the other parts

          of its body but it will spin around and drop you.



          If you're underneath it, it will send out a several purple electric

          spheres. They're easy to avoid. Make your way back to the upper

          You can lock onto it so that you can tell which hole will it come

          Bloodgoyles will attack you. You need to turn them to stone first

          before you can actually kill them. To do that, hit them first using

          your guns until they become stones then hit them with your melee

          weapons until they break. They will turn back from stone to blood

          form if you leave them for a short period of time. And also, they

          "Jester's gonna spank your butt, spank you in the buuuttt!"





          Ok, this is the additional boss for DMC3:SP. This guy is very

          predictable, and you can always anticipate what's he's going to

          do. When he does his taunt just blast your guns at him. He will

          dance to dodge the bullets, then teleports far away from you,

          fanning himself. This is the time to attack him your melee weapons.

               

          Attacks:



          1. He will charge and portals will appear behind him. You need to

             roll over to avoid the projectiles being thrown at you.



          2. Several charged spheres will appear and encircle the area. You

             can also destroy a distinct green sphere to get a healing orb.

             You can also try running and hitting him in between the attacks.





          Just enter the portal and you will taken back.

          Go to the top, there should be panel where you can put the

          ASTRONOMICAL BOARD. An item should be accessible now, and also a

          magical "trampoline" that allows you to jump really high.

 

          Go to the fourth floor on the left part of the chamber, examine the

          shiny thingy on the panel to obtain VAJURA. Go to the third floor

         Also, get an "ALRIGHT!" rank using the Combat Adjudicator with

         Cerberus to obtain another BLUE ORB FRGMNT.



         [ENDLESS INFERNUM]



         Just take the path leading to the door. You will not fall down

         Two Enigmas are initially visible on the screen. The other two are

         offscreen on the left and right. Having the Trickster style here is

         really helpful. Just try to score a few basic hits then roll when the

         arrows are fired. Defeat all of them, mission completes.



         Obtain BLUE ORB FRGMNT.

         [FIRESTORM CHAMBER]

         



         !!BOSS - AGNI (WEAK VS. ICE) & RUDRA



         

         This two mimics each other. If one attacks, you can definitely

         anticipate the other. They will dash, slash or jump at you.

         Just concentrate your hits on one of them if given a chance, if

         you're using Cerberus, it will kill Agni easier.



         Also, you can knock thier weapons by doing a jump attack, leaving

         them vulnerable and you can deal twice the damage. Also, if you

         defeat one of them, the other one will take the other sword, equipping

         it. Just take note of thier attack patterns and you should do fine.

         Just remember that there would be chances when you can attack them

         open. Most of the time, they will yell when they'll gonna do an attack

         There'll also be times that they will charge thier swords. During that

         time, you can rush in and score a few slashes.



         Try to attack them from behind as much as possible. Also, you can

         parry thier own attack to disarm them for a brief period of time.



         

         After defeating them, you will obtain AGNI & RUDRA twin swords.

         Proceed to the door to continue.

         [MUTE GODDESS' CHAMBER]



         Get the red orbs on top of the statue. Head through the red door.





         [CHAMBER OF THREE TRIALS]



         The door on the right is blocked by rock debris and you need to pass

         at least two trials to get two essences, needed to power up the laser

         and clear the path for you. Get three and you will obtain a fairly

         neat weapon. You can choose whichever path you want.

         

         The rooms and trials are:





         TRIAL OF THE WARRIOR -- Right door

         TRIAL OF SKILL       -- Middle door

         TRIAL OF WISDOM      -- Left door

         



         I suggest taking the Trials of Wisdom and Skill first since they're

         easier. But again, it's up you.







         [TRIAL OF WISDOM ]





         "Your wisdom will be put to the test in the chamber ahead.  Use your

          lifetime experience:  from the crawling infant; to the man standing

          tall; and finally to the old man-leaning on his cane."





         This is one age-old phrase. An infant walks on four legs, a man walks

         on two while and old man leaning on his cane is three. Use the pattern

         to find the correct path.



         If you happen to enter the wrong door, you will need to defeat all

         enemies to exit. You just need to enter 3 correct doors to get to the

         chamber that contains the Essence of Intelligence. Exit through any

         door.





         [TRIAL OF SKILL]



          

         The essence is located in the far-most end of the room. You need to

         dodge the series of spikes in all directions. After obtaining the

         Essence of Technique, enemies will appear. Defeat them then leave

         the room.





         [TRIAL OF THE WARRIOR]



          

         Take note of the enemies here. You can't stop them while they still

         have the purple shades on them. You need to light up both firewheels

         completely to release the shades and make them vulnerable. Also,

         the firewheels only stay lit for a few seconds. You need to light

         them again if you notice the purple shades back on the enemies.



         Just defeat them all to obtain the Essence of Fighting.





 

         After obtaining the essences, examine the odd looking statue. After

         putting two of the essences, a laser will fire, clearing your path.

         Put in the third essence and you will obtain ARTEMIS.



         Head through the door.





         [DARK CORRIDOR]



         

         Use Agni & Rudra on the Combat Adjudicator and try to get an

         "ALRIGHT!" ranking to obtain a BLUE ORB FRGMNT. Continue, and note

         Just remember that Air Hike, Ebony& Ivory's rapid blast in mid-air,

         Just defeat all of them, you should get an ORIHALCON FRAGMENT as a

         drop from one of them. Exit the library.

         Jump on the glowing floor emblems and make your way to the very top.

         Enter door.



          

         [TRANQUIL SOUL ROOM]

 

         You will need to clear the rooms of enemies in order to proceed. Go

         to the statue where the candles are lit and new monsters will appear.

         These guys call in reinforcements by sticking thier coffins in the

         ground, leaving them open to attacks as well. In future battles, you

         need to get rid of these guys first. Also, you will know if they're

         gonna swing at you if they raise thier coffins.



         Obtain SIREN'S SHRIEK from the altar after clearing the room of

         enemies. Go to the next area.

         battle.

         His attacks are fairly powerful yet predictable. You need to dodge

         his attacks and when you have the chance, hit him. When he teleports,

         expect that he will appear on your side, ready to strike. Roll away

         to evade. Also, just let him finish the combo he started so that he

         will be open for a few hits.



         Near the end of the battle, he will send out a dimensional wave

         towards you, so just roll to evade it. You can also use your guns

         when you're at a distance. Also, Vergil can dash towards you rapidly

         so watch for it.



         Not to mention that he has a technique where he will teleport towards

         you and begin a combo. You should be able to get through this battle

         red heart and the blue heart. The red one abrorbs the red orbs dropped

         by the defeated basic enemies (Hell Envies) while the blue one

         drains your Devil Trigger gauge. They will try the mob you and you

         need to actually inflict serious damage on both red and blue hearts

         to expose the weakness of the main heart. Also, attacking with your

         guns in the air helps. Note that when the hearts turns red, its about

         to fire a laser. Just make sure you anticipate this and evade. Another

         this is if you manage to own a holy water, you can use it here. It can

         damage all hearts seriously.

         This guy is huge and aggressive. Fortunately, the area is wide enough

         for a moment by hitting him directly in the face and score some free

         hits. Just dont do that infront of him or he will be able to hit you.



         He normally does a basic 3 hit combo. But halfway his health, he

         will charge towards you or just stomp the ground, a huge pillar

         will drop and he will punch it towards you. Also he will stand and   

         punch the ground. You must jump to evade this since that attack also

         sends out a shockwave. Just make sure that you take the chance to

         attack him when he is standing, aim for his eyes for more damage.

         Also, glowing feathers will burst out from his back and shoot at you.

       

         Getting behind him is the trick and also hard hits on his face will

         give you more attack opportunities. Having the swordsmaster style

         in this battle also helps, since you can perform air combos more

         efficiently, giving you more advantage in this battle. Just remember

         Solve the Crystal Puzzle.





         You need to only light one of the two recieving statues and there

         were actually at least five or six diffrent solutions here. Im sorry

         I wont be able to provide you solutions for this one since I consider

         this puzzle a fairly easy one. Obtain a Blue Orb Fragment.





         [ENTRANCEWAY] (Red Door)

         

         As usual, enemies will appear as you enter. Defeat them. If you

         want a Devil Star, proceed to the end of the path to reach the door

         upstairs. You need to battle a set of enemies though.



         When ready just go inside the cracked hole in the wall.





         [CHAMBER OF SINS]



         Light both firewheels to have the two skullspheres to drop. You need

         have both of them to collide and break. After that, railings will

         open and you'll gain ONYX MOONSHARD.

 

         The entrance will be sealed and two Fallens will attack you. Defeat

         them and seal will be broken.





         [SUN AND MOON CHAMBER]



         Examine the panels on the closed door, place the GOLDEN SUN and

         ONYX MOONSHARD. Door will open.





         [ICE GUARDIAN'S CHAMBER]

 

         Alright, Bloodgoyles + Enigmas. Good. You need to make use of your

         trusted guns to survive. Jump up the debris to get to the next area.



        

         [SURGE OF FORTUNAS]



         Bloodgoyles and Lusts will ambush you. You can get rid of them or

         run from them.





         [ENDLESS INFERNUM]

 

         Walk downstairs and take the large red door in the end.

         Either attempt to take the door or head to the library- it doesnt

         matter; scene will occur.







         !! BOSS - LADY





         Lady is one heck of a gunner. She moves a lot and is fast. You need

         to actively lock unto her to know her position. Try to keep her in

         sight as much possible.





         Attacks:



         1. Bazooka -- she will fire a hard bazooka shell in your face. She

                       will always try to get behind or adistance from you

                       to activate this attack       

         

         2. Grenades -- She will jump in the platforms above the shelves and

                        will use time delay grenades. She is open for a few

                        hits while throwing the grenades.



         3. Grappling hook - NOt really an attack but her way to get into

                          another position. She will pistol away as she

                          ascends.



         4. Homing Rockets - she kneels down and loads her RL. Once fired,

                           several homing projectiles will chase you. You

                           can cancel it by hitting here before the launcher

                           fires.







         YOu need to use fast, hard-hitting attacks here. She will run around

         and the shelves are actually good to protect you from her long ranged

         attacks. She staggers a bit so when that happens, score a few free

         hits on her.



         You'll obtain KALINA ANN rocket launcher (Dante only)

 



         [HIGH-FLY ZONE]

          at times.





          [GOD CUBE CHAMBER]

         to open. You just need to evade his attacks, lure him to your

         position near the bulb. As he rushes towards you, begin hitting the

         the bulb to light it up, leaving him vulnerable for a few seconds.

         You will need to repeat the patterns since he will try to shut down

         the bulbs time to time. Also, he will not attack you if you stay on

         the light.



         Using Beowulf in this battle can deal serious damage to him when he

         is stunned by the light.

        [DAMNED CHESS BOARD]



        You need to take out the king when you have the chance. Just take care

        of the pawns first then when the other official pieces makes thier

        move, just evade and use your projectile weapons to take them out

        safely.



        Take note the the pieces do "phase in" and "phase out". When they turn

        gray, they will be invulnerable. Also the Damned Rooks revive

        destroyed pieces. Not to mention they will protect the king by

        "castling" with him. Just be careful on the Queen itself since it is

        the most mobile and dangerous.





        After destroying the King, other pieces shall fall.





        [ROAD TO DESPAIR]



        Follow the path. Two Fallens will appear. Get rid of them. Before

        taking the portal to the next area, go to the right side of the foot

        to the left of the door. There is a rotating cube above you so double

        jump to reach it. Wait for the cube you're standing on floats away

        then starts to float back towards the door. You may need to rotate

        your camera to find the cube that moves up and down. You need to

        double jump then Sky Star (air dash) to get to that cube. Wait until

        the cube moves all the up. Then, double jump to the cube that is about

        to float overhead. You need timing to avoid being pushed and fall to

        the bottom. Rotate your camera if needed to find two rotating cubes

        moving up and down. You need to double jump then air dash to the left

        most cube when it reaches the top. Upon landing on that rotating cube,

        you need to immediately turn around, double jum then air dash to reach

        Defeat the enemies and a portal will appear.





        [NIRVANA OF ILLUSIONS]



        The room is surrounded by mirrors and the only way you can damage the

        enemies is by hitting the mirror with a greenish hue, obviously the

        one that has reflections.  Once the portal appears, jump to the

        top of the chandelier to the right facing it to obtain a Vital Star L.



     

        [INFINITY NIVRVANA]



        You need to defeat the enemies before the sand on the hourglass runs

        out, otherwise the area will be resetted and you will be brought back

        Follow the path, use divinity statue. Boss battle up ahead.

 



        [FORBIDDEN NIRVANA]





        !! BOSS - ARKHAM



        You can run up to him and socre a few slashes. He will attack using

        his tentacles, just jump to evade and attack in the air.



        He will also submerge himself, leaving a group of slimy slug-like

        enemies. Use wide-ranged attacks to defeat the slugs or they'll mob

        you and deal continuous damage. Kalina Ann is good in crowd control.

        

        When attacking Arkham, you may need use Beowulf's attacks since his

        combos includes jumping in the air and smashing downwards, giving you

        more chances on evading his attacks. Also, you can use your Devil

        Trigger here since you will not be able to use that in the second part

        of the battle.



        Halfway on his health, you will be joined by Vergil (Dante) or Red

        Vergil (Vergil). If you have a second controller and buddy, you can

        just press the start button to gain 2nd player control to your shadow/

        brother. The 2nd player is invulnerable so, you just have him do

        the slashing and you take care of the blasting (using your guns)

        !! BOSS -- VERGIL / RED VERGIL



         

        This guy is fast, has devil trigger and hits hard. Be sure to have

        a lot of Vital Star L  that you can afford at the moment. He is really

        agressive and tends to attack you most often. Just evade his combos

        so that you can interrupt him or perform a counter-attack while he

        recovers.



        When he Devil Triggers, stay away from him while firing projectiles

        away. He recovers HP while in this mode so keep hitting him with

        your guns to chip away the life he recovers.



        Do not attempt to continue attacking him once he parries your attack.

        In most instances, he will dash in front of you then combo the hell

        out of you.



        Also, in the latter part of the game, he will use Judgement Cut

        rapidly and will vanish while running around the area leaving a trail

        of air slashes that deal good amount of dmg.



        You can use you own Stinger move to get to him quickly or to counter

        him when he's open. Rebellion and Beowulf are the weapon of choice

        here. For guns, Ebony and Ivory or either Spiral or Kalina Ann. But

        you wont be able to use the secondary weapons often because of thier

        slow firing rate.

================



COATLESS DANTE - clear Easy or Normal



--This is Dante's default and basic costume.





DMC1 DANTE - clear Normal mode



--This is what he's wearing in the ending when he's shop is opened. Obviously,

this is the outfit he is wearing on the original Devil May Cry. Also note that

in this mode, Dante's Rebellion sword will look like the Force Edge but will

remain as it is.





DMC1 COATLESS - clear Hard mode



--This is the outfit of the original game. The Dante's amulet is visible in

this outfit and also Rebellion will look like Force Edge.





SPARDA - clear Hard mode



--Sparda's outfit, complete with his demon shadow and monocle. Again Rebellion

will look like Force Edge and Ebony and Ivory will look like Luce and Ombra.

Again only the appearance will be change. Nothing else.





SUPER DANTE - clear Very Hard mode



--Same as his default sleeveless outfit. It does give Dante unlimited Devil

Trigger. In this form however, his HP is not recovered unlike the normal

trigger. Also, using Time Lag (Quicksilver Style), Flux (devil trigger

explosion and After Image (Doppelganger) consumes trigger gauge.





SUPER SPARDA - clear DMD mode



--Sparda outfit in infinite Devil Trigger mode. Using Flux, Time Lag and

After Image doesnt consume trigger runes. Also, HP recovers fast, giving

--Just like Super Sparda outfit, Vergil gets unlimited Devil Trigger while

having rapid HP recovery. Using Flux and Spiral Swords doesnt consume runes in

this mode.

DANTE                             VERGIL

      -DMC1 Coatless                    -Coatless

      -Sparda                           -Nelo Angelo
