Mision 5 – The Devil Sword Sparda Walkthrough Strategy

Get the Blue Orb Fragment in the room near the tractor

There is a Blue Orb Fragment to the left, in the back of the tractor. Collect it before proceeding to the Empusa Queen fight.

Battle with the Empusa Queen

DMC 5 Mission 5 Walkthrough

Create some distance away from the Empusa Queen while sending out Shadow and Griffon to attack. The Empusa Queen’s attacks have very predictable timing as it always winds up before striking. Stay mobile and avoid getting cornered until you are able to summon Nightmare to distract it. When you see an opening to perform Checkmate, approach it from behind to defeat it.

Get the Purple Orb Fragment in the area with the gas tank

You can get the Purple Orb Fragment by positioning yourself on the platform opposite the fragment and then clinging to Griffon to reach it.

Escaping the tunnel

Before you reach the tunnel’s exit after jumping in the hole, you will fight another mob of enemies and another Empusa Queen. As always, keep yourself in the back lines while Shadow and Griffon attack the enemies. Unleash Nightmare again on the second Empusa Queen and deal with it like with the first.

Boss: Elder Geryon Knight

DMC 5 Mission 5 Walkthrough

Elder Geryon Knight is a rather straightforward boss. The boss gallops around for much of the early stages of the fight, occasionally charging at you with his lance. This can be avoided with a well-timed dodge. When he moves some distance from you, pepper him with Griffon’s long-range attacks.

The best strategy to use against the boss is to maintain a safe distance from him and let your summons do damage. The boss has several area of effect attacks that can easily catch you. Among these attacks is the summoning of electricity his horse stands on two legs, he striking the ground with his weapon to generate lightning.

When you see the boss raise his left hand, be ready to dodge three consecutive bolts of electricity.

Eventually, Elder Geryon Knight’s horse’s mane will glow. This is telegraphing a shout that slows time. The boss will then proceed to teleport to random locations and attack you. The place where he will appear can be anticipated to dodge his attacks.

The horse can also shoot orbs that explode and cause time to slow down in an area. If you get caught inside, move out quickly to avoid a follow-up attack.

Keep dodging his attacks while chipping away at his health with Griffon and Shadow. Summon Nightmare as often as possible. Eventually, the boss’s stead will kneel in pain which allows you to deliver the killing blow.
