Devil May Cry 5 Mega Buster | How to get it

If you want the Devil May Cry 5 mega buster for yourself, there are a couple of ways to get your, ahem, hands on it. The first is by buying one of the two more expensive editions of the game. The Deluxe and Collector’s editions give you exclusive DLC that you can download and add into the game. One of these DLC items is the mega buster gun so, if you fancy paying an extra $10, you can get it this way.

Alternatively, you can buy the weapon from Nico’s shop in-game. The Mega Buster will set you back 1,000 red orbs though, so make sure you stock up before you try and buy it.

The Devil May Cry 5 Mega Buster weapon has a distinctive (and slightly funny) ability that allows Nero to utilize it effectively. It allows you shoot long range projectiles at the various enemies in the game. If you want a break from hacking and slashing your opponents, or you feel like you could get swarmed, take a few steps back and lay into your foes this way.

The humorous part of the Mega Buster gun is that, when he jumps, Nero stretches out his arms above his head. This is a cool little Easter egg that pays homage to Mega Man himself, whose iconic jump is referenced here. With Capcom the developer behind both franchises, it isn’t surprising that they’d use Mega Man’s gun in Devil May Cry 5.
