Introduction:

Devil May Cry 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Devil May Cry, and now it's back in HD. Unfortunately, the game is nothing compared to its predecessor, removing the brilliant atmosphere and fluid combat for a vast and empty world with spamfest combat. However, it still has its moments. The platinum will require a minimum of 5 Story Mode playthroughs (or 3 if you decide to use the cheats), as well as the several hour endurance race that is Bloody Palace Mode.

Before you start - Cheats:
There are a few cheats available for use in Devil May Cry 2, but unlike DMC1 and 3, the use of cheats does not disable trophies or saving. With this, you can shave off two playthroughs and if you have a PAL version, you can make reaching level 9000 on Bloody Palace Mode much easier. In order to input a cheat, you must have finished Mission 1 on the respective disc, then input the code at the "Press Start Button" menu - you will hear a sound when the cheat registers.
  • Mission Select: , , , , , , ,
  • Unlock Trish: +++ (hold for 5-10 seconds)
  • Unlock Must Die costume: , , , , , , , , , ,
By inputting these three cheats on both Dante's and Lucia's disc, you will unlock not only the rewards affixed to the cheats above, but you may also unlock Hard Mode, Must Die Mode and Bloody Palace Mode, removing the need for two of the playthroughs. This isn't always the case though, read below for more information regarding these cheats.

NOTE: Some members have claimed that inputting these cheats does in fact unlock the other modes, whilst others - myself included - haven't been able to unlock Hard, Must Die or Bloody Palace modes by inputting the cheats. Whether it is due to the disc region like the Infinite DT cheat, or there is another criteria to unlocking them through the cheats, it is currently unknown. I will update this when I know for sure how to unlock the modes with the cheats.

Now for those who have the PAL version of the game, then you're in luck - you'll be able to fly through Bloody Palace Mode (literally) with the Infinite Devil Trigger cheat. To do this, you must select a save file that has completed Normal Mode, Hard Mode or Must Die Mode (indicated by a bronze coin, silver coin or gold coin, respectively), then select it with Trish as the character costume. Then, hold + + + and select Bloody Palace Mode. Don't let the buttons go until the round starts. If done correctly, you will hear the sound of your DT gauge filling up.

Unfortunately for those with an NTSC version of the game, this Infinite DT cheat does not work, so you will have to go through Bloody Palace Mode the normal way.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Finish Normal Mode with Dante and Lucia
First things first, you need to complete both Dante's and Lucia's scenario on Normal Mode to unlock Hard Mode. Use this as a chance to learn the basics of the characters and their moves, as well as the enemies and their attack patterns. Try and collect as many Blue Orbs and Blue Orb fragments during this, and try and find as many Secret Missions as you can, but this isn't necessary just yet.

During the Dante playthrough, upgrade all the swords you obtain to at least Level 3 for the "Like a Hot Knife Through Butter" trophy, and choose a gun to focus your levelling on, as this will be necessary for the "Arms Race" trophy, though all stats will carry on to further playthroughs with Dante, so you can work towards these at your own pace.

For Lucia's playthrough, upgrade her Arsenals to Level 3 for the "To The Max" trophy, and choose a sword to focus your levelling on, as this will be neccessary for the "Armed and Dangerous" trophy. Like Dante, Lucia's stats will carry across playthroughs, so it isn't paramount that these are done in one playthrough.

If using the cheats, then you will only need to do one Normal Mode playthrough.

Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:
Every Knee Will Bend
Two Heads Are Better Than One
Monkeying Around
No Joke
Sin City
Deep One
That's A Big Mother...
Hungry Like The Wolves
Ball 'n Chain

Step 2: Finish Hard Mode with Dante and Lucia
Having finished Normal Mode with both Dante and Lucia, you will have unlocked Hard Mode. Now you must do the same again on Hard Mode to unlock Must Die Mode, the hardest difficulty the game has to offer. If you haven't done so already, collect all the Blue Orbs and Blue Orb fragments, as well as completing up to the 20th Secret Mission for Dante, or 10th Secret Mission for Lucia.

If using the cheats, then you will only need to do one Hard Mode playthrough.

Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:
Every Head Will Bow

Platinum Trophy Road Map 2/2

Step 3: Finish Must Die Mode
If you want to save yourself a playthrough, then you should do Must Die Mode with Trish. She is probably the best character to use for Story Mode, due to all her equipment being fully upgraded from the start, plus her skills are probably the most well rounded of the three characters.

Must Die Mode is the hardest of the difficulties available in Devil May Cry 2. Enemies will be a lot more vicious, deal more damage, and just generally be more of a nuisance. The biggest change in MDM is that enemies can enter Devil Trigger mode, rivalling even the strength of a DT'd Dante, Lucia or Trish. Be careful around DT'd enemies, as they will hit harder, take less damage, and worst of all, will no longer suffer knockback from attacks - this means they can attack through your combos.

Always make sure to have a healthy supply of Green Stars and Devil Stars, as well as a Golden Orb for the boss encounters.

NOTE: If you choose to do Must Die Mode using Trish on Lucia's scenario, you may want to consider either using Lucia, or using Trish in Dante's scenario, as Tateobesu in Mission 7 can be very tedious and difficult to beat using Trish. Refer to "Deep One" for more information.

Upon completing Step 3, you will earn:

Every Tongue Will Confess
Step 4: Finish the game on any difficulty with Trish
If you used Trish to finish Must Die Mode, then you can skip this step. If not however, you will need to complete the game with Trish on any difficulty. To make things easy for yourself, play Normal Mode, as by this stage, you should be able to rush through either story scenario will ease.

Upon completing Step 4, you will earn:

Barehand Beauty
Step 5: Reach Level 9000 on Bloody Palace Mode
I recommend saving Bloody Palace Mode for last, as this will allow you not only to learn the mechanics of the game and the characters, but you should also have well upgraded gear for at least one character.

Bloody Palace Mode will be more tedious than difficult, with a 9000 level session taking anywhere between 3-6 hours for an average gamer, depending on character and technique. You will want to have at the very least 10 Green Star L., 10 Devil Star L., and a Golden Orb, along with as many other items as possible. Having a fully upgraded sword and a few fully upgraded guns or arsenals will also be of great help for this.

Using the Infinite DT cheat on the PAL version, you won't need any items whatsoever, and it will only take you roughly 30-45 minutes to pass 9000 levels.

Upon completing Step 5, you will earn:
First Blood
Blood Letting
Over 9000!
Step 6: Clean Up
You shouldn't need this step, but if you haven't got enough Red Orbs by this stage to upgrade your gear far enough, or missed a collectible trophy, then Mission Select is your friend. Just choose whatever mission is applicable for the trophy that you're missing and finish 'er up!

If not earned during earlier steps, upon completing Step 6 you will earn:
Caeruleus Diabolus
Vita Maxima
Magica Maxima
Full Armory
Check Out My Collection
Take Heart, Lucia
A Secret Revealed
Highest Honor
The Sky's The Limit
Stylish!
En Vogue
Armed and Dangerous
Arms Race
Like a Hot Knife Through Butter

Which will ultimately unlock:
Platinum Trophy

Platinum Trophy Story Mode Trophies 1/2

Trophy Guide:


Platinum Trophy
Unlock all trophies

Congratulations! You've endured what is quite possibly the worst Devil May Cry game to date, and achieved the highest honour - platinum!

Story Mode Trophies:

Every Knee Will Bend
Finish the game on Normal Mode with any character

Compared to Devil May Cry 1 and 3, Devil May Cry 2 is a cakewalk. No real advice for this, just try and get all the weapons and as many of the Blue Orbs as you can, as it will be beneficial in further difficulties.

Every Head Will Bow
Finish the game on Hard Mode with any character

To unlock Hard Mode, you must finish both Dante's and Lucia's scenario on Normal Mode. Hard Mode is comparable to DMC1's Normal Mode - it offers a challenge that newcomers might find overwhelming, but with a little bit of practice and knowledge, anyone can overcome it. If you haven't done so already, collect all the Blue Orbs - from Secret Missions, finding them throughout the Story Missions, and purchasing them - and buy the Purple Orbs. The more health and devil gauge you have, the better. Also, try and upgrade at least two swords and two guns or arsenals to Level 3, and if you can Level 5 for the swords. The stronger your weaponry, the faster the bosses will fall, therefore the easier it'll be for you.

If you need Red Orbs, then you can farm them easily on Mission 13 on Dante's scenario or Mission 9 on Lucia's scenario.

Every Tongue Will Confess
Finish the game on Must Die Mode with any character

To unlock Must Die Mode, you must finish both Dante's and Lucia's scenario on Hard Mode. For the bosses, I recommend always having a healthy supply of Green Stars and Demon Stars of both sizes, and if possible, a Golden Orb. Having a Golden Orb will make boss fights considerably easier, as it will give you a second chance without having to start from scratch - which is a blessing if you die when the boss is in the red.

One of the most noticeable differences from Normal Mode and Hard Mode to Must Die Mode is the fact that enemies can go into a Devil Trigger state like you, and when they're DT'd their attack power sky-rockets, as does their health and defensive abilities. Due to this, I recommend always focusing on the stronger enemies first, as if you clear out the weak enemies only to have a pack of DT'd powerhouses coming for you, chances are you won't get far. Use whatever weaponry that is well upgraded, and focus on the powerful weaponry moreso than the agile weaponry.

Barehand Beauty
Finish the game on any difficulty with Trish

To unlock Trish, you must finish Dante's scenario on Hard Mode. If you decide to follow the Road Map and do your Must Die Mode playthrough using Trish, you'll save yourself an extra playthrough, though it isn't too much hassle to do a sixth playthrough, as it will only add 2-3 hours to your game time.

For those who were fans of the first Devil May Cry, then you will love Trish as a character. Her moveset is the same as that of Dante's from DMC1, plus her equipment is fully upgraded from the moment you start.

Platinum Trophy Bloody Palace Trophies 2/2 and Collection Trophies

Over 9000!
Pass 9000 levels in Bloody Palace Mode

Upon finishing Normal Mode with both Dante and Lucia, you will unlock Bloody Palace Mode. This is essentially a survival mode, in which you must fight wave upon wave of enemies, with the only way to finish being death. You may think passing 9000 levels in one go is excessive, but it isn't too difficult or strenuous if you have a well-upgraded character, and choose the fastest path during Bloody Palace.

When you start a round of Bloody Palace Mode, you will begin at level 1 with your character of choice, pitted against a wave of enemies. After defeating said wave, you will have an option of three portals to go through - the portal with the red glyph in the middle will take you up 1 level, the portal with the white glyph in the middle will take you up 10 levels, and the last (green glyph) will ascend you 100 levels. Therefore, if you take only the third portal, you will only have to endure through 90 battles, as opposed to the potential 9000. To extend on the levels, every level that is a multiple of 10 (10, 520, 9000, etc) will pit you against one of the bosses of the game instead of standard enemies, so plan accordingly if you intend to take a boss path. However, the fastest route going from level 1 through the 100-level portal will completely avoid bosses for the entire Bloody Palace round.

When it comes to which character to use, I would strongly recommend using Dante - he is the strongest, thus meaning you will most likely complete the 9000 levels considerably faster with him. Trish may be considerably better when it comes to staying safe with her excess of overpowered ranged attacks, but using her Round Trip tactic (which is probably her best method for tackling BP) can take a normal player roughly 5-6 hours to complete, whereas a run with Dante can be done in about 3-4 hours. Lucia is fast, but takes damage too easily, so is only really a viable character for it by using her Arsenals, which like Trish, is slow.

Item-wise, you should have at the very least 10 Green Star L. and 10 Devil Star L., as well as a Golden Orb. However it is still highly recommended you have as many Green Star S. and Devil Star S. as possible.

What seems to be the biggest hurdle for most players in BP Mode are the Goatlings. For Dante and Lucia, they are best handled by just keeping your distance and using ranged attacks. For Trish, they are best handled by keeping close and constantly jumping, following up with a Helm Breaker attack (). With correct timing, Trish can avoid practically all Goatling attacks using this method. This Helm Breaker method is also perfectly viable with Dante. Credit goes to Happenstance for this method.

NOTE 1: Bloody Palace Mode can glitch on occasion, resulting in you being unable to continue and having to restart. It seems to occur when you shoot the mages with Dante's Missile Launcher, with the mage glitching into the wall. To avoid this, simply avoid using Dante's Missile Launcher against the mage-type enemies.

NOTE 2: If you're using the Infinite DT cheat through a PAL version, then you can ignore everything written above - it will only take 30-45 minutes holding to do it.

Collection Trophies:

Caeruleus Diabolus
Collect 12 Blue Orb fragments

Glitched.

There has been a report of this trophy glitching, though it could potentially only be for NA versions of the game. Apparently it can glitch if you obtain a Full Blue Orb before collecting 12 Blue Orb fragments.

To avoid the glitch:
  1. Start new game with Dante or Lucia
  2. Collect the fragments and DO NOT collect or buy Full Blue Orb
  3. Dont save or turn off the PS3, quickly continue to the next mission and collect the rest of the fragment 4+4+4 = 12 (make sure you do Secret Mission)
Credit to loner hero for mentioning this glitch and its work-around.

Read "Vita Maxima" for more details.

Vita Maxima
Max out Health Bar with any character

To max out the Health Bar for a character, you must obtain all the available Blue Orbs and Blue Orb fragments. For each character, there are a total of 10 Blue Orbs and 20 Blue Orb fragments, for a total of 15 Blue Orbs.

You can purchase 5 Blue Orbs from the God of Time for a total of 54,000 Red Orbs, but everything else must be found. 5 Blue Orbs and 10 Blue Orb fragments are scattered throughout the missions, whilst the other 10 fragments are obtained from completing Secret Missions. If playing as Dante, you will need to complete 20 Secret Missions to obtain all the fragments. If playing as Lucia, you will need to complete 10 Secret Missions to obtain all the fragments.

For a detailed guide on the location of the Blue Orbs and Blue Orb fragments, please refer to YuriSEAL Prime's Blue Orbs/Secret Missions FAQ. All credit goes to YuriSEAL Prime.

Magica Maxima
Max out Devil Trigger Gauge with any character

To max out the Devil Trigger gauge for a character, you must obtain all 5 Purple Orbs. Luckily, these can all be purchased from the God of Time for a total of 81,000 Red Orbs. Everything carries across difficulties, so you should get this with relative ease, assuming you're getting a decent amount of Red Orbs.

If you need to farm for Red Orbs, good locations include Missions 8 and 13 for Dante and Mission 9 for Lucia.

Full Armory
Collect all Swords with Dante

Dante has three swords: Rebellion, Vendetta and Merciless.
  • Rebellion: Dante's default sword.
  • Vendetta: Can be found in Mission 7 inside the oil room, which is next to the lava pit
  • Merciless: can be found in two locations - in Mission 11, atop the ceiling spikes that drop down, and in Mission 14, next to one of the four spheres you must trigger to enter the Underworld.
There is actually a fourth sword - Force Edge - which is the default weapon for the DMC1 Dante costume, but it is not necessary for the trophy.

Check Out My Collection
Collect all Arsenals with Lucia

Lucia has four arsenals: Throwing Knives, Darts, Cranky Bombs and Bow Gun.
  • Throwing Knives: Lucia's default arsenal.
  • Darts: Can be found in Mission 2, just above where you receive the Aerial Heart. Destroy the Gargoyle statues to get it.
  • Cranky Bombs: Can be found in Mission 5, inside the large aeroplane.
  • Bow Gun: Can be found in Mission 6, after the Noctpeteran fight. It's underwater, inside a blue cave.
Take Heart, Lucia
Collect all Devil Hearts with Lucia

There are a total of nine Devil Hearts to collect with Lucia, one of which she begins with.

Ability Hearts:
  • Aerial Heart: Can be found in Mission 2, in the chamber where you fight the Goatlings. Cannot be missed.
  • Aqua Heart: Can be found in Mission 7, inside the second chamber.
  • Quick Heart: Can be found in Mission 8, after completing the Moving Sphere puzzle.
Elemental Hearts:
  • Electro Heart: Can be found in Mission 5, after placing the Evil Heart.
  • Flame Heart: Can be found in Mission 5, just fly to the top of the staircase using Aerial Heart.
  • Frost Heart: Lucia's defeault Devil Heart.
Support Hearts:
  • Chrono Heart: Can be found in Mission 11. Next to the portal, there is a large, white vein in the ground with a yellow pulsating light being emitted from underneath it. Smash enemies into the vein a few times and it will open, giving you access to the Chrono Heart.
  • Healing Heart: Can be found in Mission 3, inside the empty house off the wharf.
  • Offence Heart: Cab be found in Mission 4, inside the tunnel just before the Orangguerra fight. To access it, you must defeat all of the Infestants.

Highest Honor
Achieve an S Rank on any Mission with Dante

There are 5 criteria for completing a Mission: Clear Time, Orbs, Stylish Average, Damage and Items Used. To achieve an S Rank on a Mission, you must get 3 S Rank and 2 A Rank, or 4 S Rank and 1 B Rank across the criteria. The criteria are very strict, receiving an S Rank for Stylish Average and Damage will pretty much require all combos finishing with an S rank and taking no damage whatsoever.

Good missions for getting an S Rank with Dante are Mission 1 and Mission 8. For Mission 1, rush through the level, fighting only the compulsory fights, making sure to get an "Showtime!" style in every fight. Take no damage and collect as many Red Orbs as you can, and you should succeed.

For Mission 8, use the Submachine Gun at Level 2 or 3, firing at the boss from a distance. Whenever he uses his fire ring or tornado, simply dodge his attacks to build the style up to "Showtime!" style, then continue firing away. Make sure that you kill him up close, otherwise you'll miss his Red Orb drop and not get an S Rank. Credit goes to Dearn over at X360A for this method.

The best mission for getting an S Rank with Lucia is Mission 1. Same as with Dante, just take the mandatory fights, avoid all damage and get "Showtime!" styles. Below is a video of Mission 1 S Rank on Must Die Mode, courtesy of evf02d:

Dante's guns don't increase the combo, however they do preserve it, so if there are no enemies nearby, you can sporadically shoot a distant enemy while moving closer to it so you can continue attacking with your sword. Dodging with will preserve the combo, even if you don't dodge an attack, so you can repeatedly dodge towards an enemy to be able to continue your combo. Doing this, you should easily get an S Rank Combo early on.

1. Choose Trish and head to Mission 5
2. After getting the Evil Heart, Go charge your DT gauge in the spiral stairs.
3. Go to the room where you need to place the evil heart BUT, do not go to the door where there is a a blue gem on it. Instead, go back to the previous room which is the Lava area.
4. Upon returning to the lava area, start dodging and get the stylish meter up to Showtime. After that, start firing your guns like crazy. If your shooting the wall, roll keep the stylish meter up then start shooting again.

BE CAREFUL!

I got glitched 2 times already in Bloody Palace mode. Once at level 301 - so no problem, I just started again.

Then ... again on level 4701.... WHAT THE HELL?! I wasted almost 2 hours getting that far and after I killed everyone on the level the portals never showed up. I think it's worth mentioning in the guide that Bloody Palace is freaking glitched.....

I disliked this game before, now I hate it with such pure hatred, I never felt for any game before....

Same thing happened to me on level 4201.
Black screen, I couldn't continue, tough I could access option menu.
I was angry, Bloody Palace is so boring (floors with a lot of wolwes in particular)
