Introduction


The DmC series is back! This time it's a reboot of the series, so forget everything you knew about past DmC games. You take on the role of Dante, a half demon half angel. Throughout the game you will be fighting demons to rid the world of their control, so there can be freedom. If you enjoy hack 'n' slash games, this might be a good pick for you!

The platinum isn't easy, but it isn't impossible either. You have to complete the game at least 6 times to get the platinum, as you have to play each difficulty in order to unlock the next one. You have to complete it on Human, Son of Sparda, Dante Must Die, Heaven and Hell, Hell and Hell and Nephilim. All of them are unique in their own way, such as in Hell and Hell you die in one hit, whereas in Heaven and Hell you kill demons in one hit but also die in one hit. That is the bulk of the game in terms of trophies. There are also trophies for collecting all the collectibles; 80 Lost Souls, 21 Keys and 21 Doors. If you follow the Collectible Guide you should have no trouble finding all of them.

*WARNING*


The prices of items increase every time you buy one. Save your devil trigger and vital stars for Son of Sparda or Dante Must Die. Also feel free to spend your Gold Orbs during boss fights. On Heaven or Hell and Hell and Hell you will automatically get 3 gold orbs at every checkpoint so that you have three lives.

Walkthrough


Step 1: Complete the game on Human difficulty

The first step is pretty much just to complete the game, don't worry about trophies for now. Just enjoy the storyline and this awesome game!

You cannot get all the lost souls, keys and doors on the first run because you won't have the weapons and upgrades to do so. Just focus on learning the controls and the combos you like best; mixing attacks up has the best results. This step should only take about 6 hours or so if you watch the cutscenes. One thing you should look out for in this are the mission specific trophies and other miscellaneous trophies, but you will more than likely get some of them in your other playthroughs anyway.


Step 2: Complete the Son of Sparda difficulty, collect all the collectibles and complete all secret missions

The second step is to complete the game on Son of Sparda, this is just a rise in difficulty and is not that hard at all. You also want to collect all of the collectibles in this step: there are 80 Lost Souls, 21 Keys and 21 Doors. Follow the Collectible Guide for all their locations. Some of the doors require keys from later missions, so you will need to do some backtracking here and there. Just replay the missions you are missing doors on after collecting all the other collectibles or do it on your Dante Must Die playthrough. Don't spend too many items on this playthrough. You might want to save them for Dante Must Die to make your life a little easier later on.

The next part is completing all 21 secret missions, all are fairly easy. These can be accessed from the main menu or by going through the secret doors in the story.


Step 3: Complete the game on Dante Must Die

This difficulty is the hardest part of the game. It's an extreme version of Son of Sparda. Enemy spawns are even more extreme and enemies can go into devil trigger mode. Enemies can take even more damage and you die more quickly. In this step you can make use of all your health and devil trigger items as well as gold orbs. After Dante Must Die you will unlock infinite Devil Trigger anyway and on the remaining difficulties you die in one hit. Save the items for the end of the game if you can. Mission 16 and 17 are the hardest and the Vergil bossfight might also require some devil trigger stars. After this step you will earn "Super Dante" which gives you infinite devil trigger for upcoming playthroughs.


Step 4: Complete the game on Heaven and Hell

Note: Make sure you enable 'Super Dante' in the Skins/Perks screen. This will make this playthrough much easier as you'll have unlimited devil trigger. To unlock this you must complete the Dante Must Die difficulty.

This is the easist difficulty in the game. All enemies die in one hit and now that you have completed Dante Must Die you will have infinite devil trigger. Really all you need to do is to activate devil trigger by pressing + and shoot enemies with your pistol. This playthrough is the fastest one and will just take a few hours. Do not worry if you are being hit. You don't need to buy gold orbs, they automatically refill at every checkpoint and are completely free! Therefore you actually have three lives and can take three hits.


Step 5: Complete the game on Hell and Hell

Note: Make sure you enable 'Super Dante' in the Skins/Perks screen. This will make this playthrough much easier as you'll have unlimited devil trigger. To unlock this you must complete the Dante Must Die difficulty.

This is the highest difficulty in the game. Enemies have full health and you die in one hit. Your Gold Orbs refill at every checkpoint, so that you have three lives. Always use your infinite devil trigger. After activating devil trigger, enemies will be floating in the air and you can finish them off with air combos or keep shooting them for a while. During boss fights you will definitely need the gold orbs, so try to save them for there. Also activate devil trigger during boss fights, as you will deal a lot more damage then and the fights become a lot easier. See this thread if your having trouble with any of the bosses:

DmC: Devil May Cry - Hell and Hell Boss Walkthroughs


Step 6: SSS Ranks on Nephilim

You will be a DmC pro now after all those playthroughs, so getting SSS ranks on Nephilim won't be that hard. Don't use items, don't use super Dante, don't die, do long combos without being hit and beat the levels very quickly to get the overall SSS rank. If you do get hit but want to keep your SSS combo, press and quit to the main menu. This way it doesn't count as a death and you'll still have your combo. You will automatically get SSS rank for the completion stat as you already have all the collectibles.

Important Links:
Vergil Must Die Video Walkthrough

Introduction:
Vergil's Downfall acts as a sort of epilogue to the main game, in that it follows Vergil in his fall from grace immediately after the events of DmC Devil May Cry. The DLC is 6 missions long, so it's roughly a third of the length of the main game, making it a decent length. Trophy-wise, it replicates the main game, forcing you into 6 playthroughs. None of these should be particularly difficult if you're half decent in combat in DmC. Overall, it is a worthwhile investment, if you're willing to play through it half a dozen times.

Walkthrough:


Step 1: Complete Vergil's Downfall on any difficulty, collecting all Lost Souls, Health Cross Fragments and Health Crosses.
First things first, you'll want to complete the DLC on any difficulty. I personally played on Devil Hunter, as I wanted to experience a little bit of a challenge. Unlike the main game, you can obtain all collectibles in the first playthrough, so it is recommended you do so. Don't be too concerned if you miss any in your first playthrough though, as there'll be plenty of time to collect them - I did most of the collectibles during my second playthrough.

Other than the collectibles, simply use the first playthrough to adapt to Vergil's unique style of combat and to enjoy Vergil's branching story.

Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:

We have an uninvited guest
You don't belong here
Our souls are at odds brother
Might controls everything

Step 2: Complete Vergil's Downfall on Son of Sparda difficulty.
Upon completing the DLC on Human, Devil Hunter or Nephilim difficulty, you'll unlock Son of Sparda difficulty. This is essentially a slightly harder version of Nephilim difficulty, with remixed enemy spawns. This shouldn't prove too difficult, as all the upgrades you gained in your first playthrough will prove very beneficial. If you missed any collectibles in your first playthrough, now is the time to clean them up. Try to avoid using any items during this playthrough, as you'll want any you have for Vergil Must Die difficulty.

Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:

I need more power!

Step 3: Complete Vergil's Downfall on Vergil Must Die difficulty.
Now comes what is probably the hardest part of the DLC. Vergil Must Die difficulty is unlocked upon completing the DLC on Son of Sparda difficulty. Enemies become once again stronger with remixed enemy spawns, plus they also get their own Devil Trigger, which can make them immensely powerful if they have a chance to activate it. Use all the items you have to get through this playthrough, as you won't require any items in your last three playthroughs.

Completing the DLC on Vergil Must Die difficulty will unlock Super Vergil, a costume that gives you infinite Devil Trigger (at the cost of 50% of mission score). This can prove very beneficial for both the Heaven or Hell and Hell and Hell difficulties.

Upon completing Step 3, you will earn:

This is the power of Sparda!
I've come to retrieve my power

Step 4: Complete Vergil's Downfall on Nephilim difficulty with SSS ranks.
I've listed this as Step 4 as it'll be immediately after playing the hardest difficulty, so you should be well adjusted to enemy attack patterns and your own arsenal. Feel free to do this at any stage, however.

Attaining SSS ranks shouldn't prove too difficult for you if you've managed to complete the other difficulties; just make sure to not die, don't use any items and use a variety of attacks. If you do this and complete the missions relatively quickly, SSS ranks will be easy to achieve.

Do note that if you use Super Vergil for this, Super Vergil incurs a 50% score deduction. SSS ranks are still possible when using Super Vergil though, just as long as you abuse Spiral Sword to maintain SSS-Sensational Style ratings.

Upon completing Step 4, you will earn:

I'll try it your way for once

Step 5: Complete Vergil's Downfall on Heaven or Hell difficulty.
Heaven or Hell difficulty is unlocked by completing Son of Sparda difficulty, and it is the easiest difficulty in the game. Both Vergil and enemies die in 1 hit. Simply plough through the difficulty, as you shouldn't have any problems at all. If you want, you can use Super Vergil for infinite Devil Trigger, as this will allow you to spam the likes of Spiral Sword, which will take out a pack in an instant.

Upon completing Step 5, you will earn:

Now I'm a little motivated!

Step 6: Complete Vergil's Downfall on Hell and Hell difficulty.
Lastly we have Hell and Hell difficulty, unlocked by completing the DLC on Heaven or Hell difficulty. Hell and Hell is similar to Heaven or Hell in that Vergil will still die in one hit, but the enemies will have normal health. If you decide to use Super Vergil, then this should be a non-issue.

Upon completing Step 6, you will earn:

You're not worthy as my opponent

Vergil Boss Fight Tactics and Video without being hit:

Vergil is very quick, but he will become vulnerable when attacking. Use Angel Evade a lot to dodge incoming attacks. Hit him with your sword whenever you have a chance. Using Osiris Shredder will break his defense and he will immediately start an attack. His most dangerous move is where he throws multiple blades in quick succession. You can either counter a blade to throw it back at him or jump in the air and use the glide ability. At the end of the fight you should make use of your shotgun. Jump around, use Angel Evade and attack when he is charging up an attack. Before you can land the final hit you have to activate Devil Trigger to get rid of Vergil's clone.

 

Looks like it's your lucky day
Complete a level without taking any damage (5) 

Location: Mission 15 - The Trade

Mission 15 is very short and none of the enemies have to be fought. All you have to do in this mission is to clear the path for a car. When you encounter enemies (you will encounter two sets, one by the boat propeller and one in the streets after pulling the truck) just run past them and concentrate on the main objective. Make sure that you never fall down, it will cause you damage and you would have to restart the last checkpoint.

 

Every hero has a weakness
Complete Furnace of Souls without taking damage from the furnace (5) 

Location: Mission 17 - Furnace of Souls

During the entire 17th mission you may not be damaged by the fire that is emitted from the ground every 7 seconds. The fire can only damage you while you are in the air, so do your best to move between platforms very quickly. While standing on solid ground you are safe. Restart the last checkpoint immediately if you fall down or are damaged by the fire. During the fight sequences, make sure that you are not pushed into the fire by your enemies. The trophy will unlock after the mission is over.

 

It's only the rain
Kill 10 enemies by pushing them into the Hurricane ride on Mission 1 (2) 

Location: Mission 1 - Found

After walking past a lost soul, you will come to an area with a big hurricane ride (some sort of carousel that is spinning in the air). The screen will say "Death" and 10 enemies will spawn. Lure the enemies below the hurricane ride and press to launch them into the air. They will die instantly if the hurricane ride hits them. Do this to all 10 enemies to unlock the trophy.

 

A man with guts and honor
Reach the end of the descent on Mission 6 having killed all of the enemies (3) 

Location: Mission 6 - Secret Ingredient

Immediately after the mission starts you will have to reach the end of the descent within 2 minutes. It's recommended to attempt this trophy on Human (easy) difficulty because enemies will die after just a few hits. There are a total of 10 enemies. Make sure to kill all of them and open the door at the end of the descent within the 2 minute limit.

 

Now my coat's all charred
Navigate the Sky Bridge on Mission 16 without hitting the lasers (2) 

Location: Mission 16 - The Plan

Towards the end of the 16th mission you will come to a corridor with several laser barriers. To get past them you need to vary your jump height and use your floating skill ( + ). For one barrier you must use the floating skill from the ground, without jumping. If you touch a barrier you can still restart the checkpoint and try it again. Be careful the Dream Runner part way through doesn't hit you into the lasers.

 

Where does the time go?
Complete a level with 2 minutes or less on the clock (4) 

Location: Mission 15 - The Trade

Mission 15 is very short and none of the enemies have to be fought. Cut scenes don't influence your total mission time. It doesn't matter if you watch or skip them. All you have got to do in this mission is to clear the path for a car. When you encounter enemies (You will encounter two sets, one by the boat propeller and one in the streets after pulling the truck) just run past them and concentrate on the main objective. Make sure that you never fall down, it will cause you damage and you would have to restart the last checkpoint.

See Jackpot!

Too easy!
Complete all missions on the Son of Sparda difficulty (1) 

This difficulty mode is unlocked after completing the game on any difficulty.

This is a step up from Nephilim. You lose a lot more health when struck and enemies take more damage to kill. The enemy spawns have also been increased drastically and stronger enemies will spawn early on.

See Devils never cry for some general fighting tactics and the best moves to stay alive.

Devils never cry
Complete all missions on the Dante Must Die difficulty (4) 

Important: Make sure to complete this difficulty before Hell and Hell to get "Super Dante" (infinite devil trigger).

This difficulty mode is unlocked after completing the game on Son of Sparda.

Dante Must Die is the most extreme mode in the game in terms of enemy spawns and the amount of damage they take to kill. You take less hits as well so you will be dying a lot if you're not evading. On this playthrough, you can spend all your vital stars (health items) and devil trigger stars. Enemies can also go into devil trigger mode which makes it harder to knock them off their feet.

General fighting techniques & helpful moves:

  • One of the most helpful moves is the Eryx Stomp. Most enemies cannot hit you while in the air. You can keep spamming it over and over again and it will hit lots of enemies at once. It works against every type of grounded enemy. To perform this move hold down + for a few seconds while in the air.
  • Another fantastic attack is the Aquila Round Trip, + . It can be used to stun enemies. Works great against blue ghost rage cats.
  • Ninjas (Dreamrunners) require a little different approach. Wait until they jump out of their portal, evade quickly and if they miss their attack, they are vulnerable for a short period of time. Attack them with a few normal Eryx strikes or your sword. When they use their portal, you can also hold down + and release the buttons at the same moment they jump out. This will counter their attack and you can deal some crazy damage.
  • Blue enemies take a while to kill because your Angel weapons are very weak. Try to kick them off a ledge or cliff for a quick environmental kill. The Aquila Tornado works very well, hold down + .
  • Red enemies can easily be killed with the above described Eryx Stomp or other Devil attacks. All these attacks deal great damage.
  • Witches can get a little annoying when they throw their red spears. Wait until they pass their shield to another enemy and then attack them with Demon attacks.
  • Flying enemies don't have much health. Use Ophion Angel Lift, + , to get up to them and keep attacking with your sword.
This is what I live for!
Complete all missions on the Heaven or Hell difficulty (1) 

This difficulty mode is unlocked after completing the game on Son of Sparda.

Heaven or Hell is the easist difficulty in the game. All enemies die in one hit and now that you have completed Dante Must Die you will have infinite devil trigger. Really all you need to do is to activate devil trigger by pressing + and shoot enemies with your pistol. This playthrough is the fastest one and will just take a few hours. Your gold orbs will refill automatically at every checkpoint and they don't cost money. You have three lives per checkpoint.

And welcome to Hell!
Complete all missions on the Hell and Hell difficulty (22) 

This difficulty mode is unlocked after completing the game on Heaven or Hell.

Hell and Hell is the highest difficulty in the game. Enemies have full health and you die in one hit. Your gold orbs will refill automatically at every checkpoint and they don't cost money. You have three lives per checkpoint. During fights always use your "Super Dante" (infinite devil trigger) ability that you got for beating the game on Dante Must Die. After activating devil trigger, enemies will be floating in the air and you can finish them off with air combos or keep shooting them for a while. Also activate devil trigger during boss fights. You will deal a lot more damage and the fights become a lot easier.

Here is a thread with boss fight tactics: DmC: Devil May Cry - Hell and Hell Boss Walkthroughs

Jackpot!
Complete all missions on the Nephilim difficulty with a SSS rank (35) 

Note: The SSS ranks have to be on Nephilim difficulty, if you have gotten an SSS rank on another difficulty it will not count towards this trophy. You will get point deductions each time you die or restart a checkpoint or when using items or special abilities such as Super Dante. If you have Super Dante unlocked then you need to deactivate it in the overview screen before starting a mission.

Your final score is judged on 3 things:

  • Score: Your score is judged by how you killed enemies and what multiplier you had when you attacked / killed the enemy. If you don't get hit, your multiplier will keep going up and up depending on what moves you are using. Don't use the same move more than twice in a row. Eventually it will go up to SSS-Sensational!, which means you'll be getting the highest multiplier towards your score.
  • Time: This is how quickly you completed the mission. You want to try and finish as quickly as you can to get the best time. As you will be going for this trophy last, you should know most missions like the back of your hand so you won't have any trouble with this.
  • Completion: This is how many of the keys, lost souls and doors you have found in the level. As you will have already collected all the collectibles in a prior playthrough, you'll always get 100% here and a SSS rank in that stat. Collectibles do not respawn and do not need to be collected again - you will get SSS each time in this category.
This party's just getting crazy!
Complete 10 Secret Missions (1) 

See One hell of a party!

One hell of a party!
Complete all of the Secret Missions (5)

We have an uninvited guest
Defeat a Wisp (1) 

Story-related, cannot be missed. You'll first encounter a Wisp during the first mission, Personal Hell, and it looks like a flying incorporeal beast with crows surrounding it. When you encounter the Wisp, all your standard attacks will be completely ineffectual - the only way to make the Wisp vulnerable is to throw an illusion sword at it by pressing . Once it's vulnerable, simply attack it with any combination of attacks, throwing illusion swords whenever it returns to its incorporeal form.

You don't belong here
Defeat an Imprisoner 

Story-related, cannot be missed. You'll first encounter an Imprisoner at the very end of the fourth mission, Heartless, and it looks like a large six-legged beast. The Imprisoner will use a lot of ranged attacks in the form of a chain of bramble, which will remain in its place for a while and hurt you if you touch it. It also has a few strong close-ranged attacks, so the best tactics is to dash in and chain a few hits together, before retreating to avoid the inevitable barrage of melee or ranged attacks. If it is ever standing in or around its own bramble, then simply use ranged attacks until it moves away from the bramble or the bramble crumbles, as attempting to attack it in that scenario will just result in you taking damage.

Our souls are at odds brother
Complete Vergil's downfall 

Story-related, cannot be missed. Simply complete the 6th mission, Another Chance, on any difficulty to unlock this.

I've come to retrieve my power
Acquire all of Vergil's health, Devil Trigger and combat upgrades (3) 

In order to max out Vergil's health, Devil Trigger and combat upgrades, you'll have to collect all Health Crosses scattered through the missions, as well as purchase all Health Crosses, Devil Trigger Crosses and all 34 combat upgrades. In order to purchase all Health and Devil Trigger Crosses, you will need to spend 15,500 Red Orbs. You should have enough Red Orbs and Upgrade Points to purchase all upgrades halfway through your 3rd playthrough.

Health Cross Prices:

  1. 500 Red Orbs
  2. 1,000 Red Orbs
  3. 2,000 Red Orbs
  4. 3,500 Red Orbs

Devil Trigger Cross Prices:


  1. 500 Red Orbs
  2. 1,000 Red Orbs
  3. 1,500 Red Orbs
  4. 2,000 Red Orbs
  5. 3,500 Red Orbs

See Might controls everything for how to collect all Health Crosses scattered throughout the missions.

Gain a 100% completion rank on all missions in Vergil's downfall (difficulty doesn't matter) (6) 

Throughout each mission (with the exception of the 5th mission, Own Shadow), you'll find a mixture of collectibles in the forms of Lost Souls, Health Cross Fragments and Health Crosses. Unlike the main game, these can all be obtained on your first playthrough, as all necessary abilities are available from the beginning. The only ability you will need to purchase is Enemy Step, which can be purchased from the beginning of the game for 1 Upgrade Point. Do note that once you've obtained all collectibles, the trophy won't unlock until you reach the Mission Complete screen. Don't worry if you fail to obtain them all in a single playthrough though, as you can collect them across multiple playthroughs.

Below is a video showing the locations of every Lost Soul, Health Cross Fragment and Health Cross. Credit to TheJohnnyBigK for the video.

 

There are a few important pieces of information that are skipped in the video:

  • Many people have problems obtaining the Health Cross Fragment at 1:45 in the video. A much easier method for obtaining it is to climb onto the broken bridge parallel to the platform with the Health Cross Fragment. It is much closer, so you can easily reach the Health Cross Fragment.
  • During the 2nd mission, Hollow, you'll eventually come to a point where the path splits (with a Divinity Statue in the middle). One Health Cross Fragment can be found up the right fork, while one Health Cross Fragment and three Lost Souls can be found up the left fork. It can be hard to backtrack if you travel too far, so the easiest method to obtain all the items is the head up the right fork for the Health Cross Fragment, then backtrack to the left fork.
I'll try it your way for once
Complete all missions in Vergil's downfall on the Nephilim difficulty with a SSS rank (2) 

In order to attain an SSS rank on a mission, you must complete missions with a lot of style points, as well as completing it quickly and with all collectibles.

The primary criteria that affect your rank are:

Style: When you fight, you'll receive Style ratings ranging from D-SSS. Chaining combos, not taking damage and just generally annihilating your opponents with a variety of attacks is the best way to attain an SSS rank here.
Time: Completing a level fast is key for this. Given you won't have to worry about getting collectibles or exploring the areas, an SSS rank for this is almost guaranteed, assuming you don't waste time and don't die at all.
Completion: This is based on how many collectibles you have in the mission. If you've collected everything in a mission, then you'll automatically receive an SSS rank for this, so it is a non-issue.

There are also a few secondary criteria that affect your rank:

Items Used: The more items you lose, the greater penalty you'll receive. Ideally you'll want to avoid using any items at all to keep the penalty at zero.
Deaths: Same as above, you'll be penalised if you die. This penalty is far greater than that of using items. As long as you don't die, then you won't have to worry about this.
Super Vergil: Whether or not you used the Super Vergil costume. Using it incurs a 50% score penalty, so obviously you'll want to complete the missions without using Super Vergil. Do note, however, that SSS rank is still very possible when using Super Vergil, as long as you abuse Spiral Sword to main SSS-Sensational Style ratings throughout the entirety of the missions. Thanks to Zatus1 for mentioning this.

If you're having difficulty getting high Style ratings, then there is a simple solution. Whenever in big groups, always ensure to use Spiral Sword by holding , as these can rack up huge style points when a lot of enemies are caught within the radius of the attack.

The one mission that is moderately difficult to attain an SSS rank on is the 5th mission, Own Shadow. I was unable to do it until I stumbled upon this video that shows a great method for it. Credit to Nemesis958 for the video.

 

I need more power!
Complete Vergil's downfall on Son of Sparda difficulty 

In order to unlock Son of Sparda difficulty, you must first complete the DLC on Human, Devil Hunter or Nephilim difficulty. This is essentially a slightly harder version of Nephilim difficulty, with remixed enemy spawns.

See This is the power of Sparda! for tactics on beating the game.

This is the power of Sparda!
Complete Vergil's downfall on Vergil Must Die difficulty 

In order to unlock Vergil Must Die difficulty, you must first complete the DLC on Son of Sparda difficulty. This is the ultimate difficulty, as enemies become once again stronger with remixed enemy spawns, plus they also get their own Devil Trigger, which can make them immensely powerful if they have a chance to activate it. Below are some tips and useful attacks/combos for completing it:

Use your items: You won't need any items beyond this difficulty, so use everything you've got. Chances are you'll need them the most in Mission 5, thanks to Hollow Vergil.

Spiral Sword: This is a Devil Trigger attack that surrounds yourself in swords, activated by holding . It is especially good for clearing through packs, and is the best way to take care of Witches. This is really the only Devil Trigger attack I ever used, save for Doppelganger against Hollow Vergil.

Rapid Slash/Flare: I found that utilising Rapid Slash ( + ) and Flare ( + ) to be extremely beneficial for surviving, as they allow you to hurt a heap of enemies while covering a lot of ground quickly. Abusing these attacks will make it hard for the enemies to hit you.

Drive/Stomp: These two attacks are Demon attacks, both performed by pressing + in midair. This is very similar to Eryx's Stomp attack in the main game, so is extremely good at damaging a compacted group of enemies, all while keeping you airborne so as to avoid ground attacks.

If you're still having difficulty with completing this, feel free to refer to this Vergil Must Die Video Walkthrough, courtesy of Seraphim17.

Now I'm a little motivated!
Complete Vergil's downfall on Heaven or Hell difficulty 

Heaven or Hell difficulty is unlocked by completing Son of Sparda difficulty, and it is the easiest difficulty in the game. Both Vergil and enemies die in 1 hit. Simply plough through the difficulty, as you shouldn't have any problems at all. If you want, you can use Super Vergil for infinite Devil Trigger (obtained by completing the DLC on Vergil Must Die difficulty), as this will allow you to spam the likes of Spiral Sword, which will take out a pack in an instant.

You're not worthy as my opponent
Complete Vergil's downfall on Hell and Hell difficulty (6) 

Hell and Hell difficulty is unlocked by completing Heaven or Hell difficulty, and is a step up from Heaven or Hell. Vergil still dies in one hit, but enemies have normal health. Although you die in one hit, you receive three gold orbs for every checkpoint, so you can realistically take four hits before dying, making things easier. Plus you can use Super Vergil for infinite Devil Trigger (obtained by completing the DLC on Vergil Must Die difficulty) to breeze through the game.

The battle against Hollow Vergil in mission 5, Own Shadow, is very difficult to win if you don't have a good strategy. Luckily, there's a great strategy for the battle in the below video, courtesy of Seraphim17.
