Devil May Cry 5 Complete Walkthrough Guide

In this Devil May Cry 5 Walkthrough Guide, we’ll show you where to find all Blue Orb Shards, all Purple Orb Shards, all Gold Orbs, all Secret Missions and all Weapons. Things will be laid out in a chronological manner, as the game is mostly linear, which a few exceptions.

Devil May Cry 5 Walkthrough Guide

There are a few Missions through out the game where you can choose different characters, and we’ll make note of any differences that occur in the game when doing so. We’ll start with Mission 1 since there is nothing to collect in the Prologue, and we’ll work our way through each, noting where to find what. We’ll also tell you what to expect on each Mission at the very beginning of each section, so if you can tell if you’ve already acquired everything, saving you time.

Mission 1 Nero

  • Gold Orbs: 1
  • Blue Orb Fragments: 1

The Gold Orb is located near the beginning of the level. It is extremely high in the air near the bridge, and you can get it by jumping onto the bus and using Gerbera after each jump. Note that you will need the triple jump ability that you will only get from defeating the game once, so you cannot get this on the first playthrough.


The Blue Orb Fragment is located immediately after the cut scene where you look down at the Red Empusa. After jumping down, follow it and you will see the Blue Orb Fragment. Jump up to it.


Mission 2 Qliphoth

  • Blue Orb Fragments: 2
  • Gold Orbs: 1
  • Secret Missions: 1

The first thing you will find in Mission 2 is a Gold Orb. After the first enemy encounter you can either go straight down the street or jump up on the right-hand side. If you jump up right you will find another street you can drop down to. You’ll fight another group of enemies just before the Gold Orb, which is at the end of this street.


After picking up the second Nidhogg Hatchling, some enemies will spawn in the room with you. Move over the grey rocky looking ground nearby and let the enemy strike it to break the floor. The Blue Orb Fragment is located here.


After using the second Nidhogg Hatchling, you will come to the first Secret Mission and the game will give you a tutorial on how to find them. By completing the Secret Mission (defeating the enemies in time) you will gain a Blue Orb Fragment.


When you make your way to the third Nidhogg Hatchling out on the street, instead of picking it up, turn around and face the opposite direction. You will see a Devil Breaker up on a ledge, jump up and get it and then jump again to get this Blue Orb Fragment.


Mission 3 Flying Hunter

  • Blue Orb Fragments: 2
  • Gold Orbs: 3
  • Secret Missions: 1

You’ll find your first Blue Orb Fragment after standing on a couple of Grim Grips and using your Wire Snatch. It’s between two white machinery housing structures, on one of the buildings you land on.


Shortly after that you will land on a building where one corner of the roof has crumbled away, and there will be some enemies here. After defeating them, head under and inside through the crumbling area to find a Gold Orb. (Note this area is only available if the player playing V on Mission 4 has broken the Qliphoth vines above and dropped a tower to create this opening)


After this building you will need to shoot an orb to reveal a Grim Grip which will take you to the top of a building with some Red Empusas. Here you will find another Gold Orb on the roof.


Continuing on you will land on a roof that has another Gold Orb smack in the middle of it. You can’t miss it.


There is a Secret Mission as you enter the stairwell in the sewers after breaking the Qliphoth roots, and a short cut scene will show you where you need to go when you enter this area. Jump all the way to the bottom and look up to reveal Secret Mission #2. Don’t let any of the Red Empusa escape to receive another Blue Orb Fragment.


In this same stairwell, at the top is a Grim Grip that you can use to get into a hole in the ceiling. Inside is a Blue Orb Fragment.

After you have destroyed the Qliphoth roots on the bridge it another Gold Orb will be right behind you.


Up head after the Gold Orb is a Purple Orb Fragment.


Next you have to summon Nightmare during the enemy encounter (just ahead) to reveal the first Blue Orb Fragment. Doing so will net you the Trophy “Backyard” as well. Once the enemies are gone, jump into the broken wall and grab the Blue Orb Fragment.  Make sure you grab the second Nidhogg Hatchling here.


The next Blue Orb Fragment is at the end of the street to the left of the white van. You will need to use a Nidhogg Hatchling to get to it.


Use the second Nidhogg Hatchling here to open another door that leads up to Secret Mission #3. You’ll go up some stairs and jump through a whole in the ceiling to get here.

There is a Blue Orb Fragment immediately after you face the enemy that shoves its hand through the ceiling for the second time. After defeating it, head down and under the platform you are on (will be on the left side), and you will find it by a burning barrel.


Immediately after grabbing this, attack the Qliphoth roots and some enemies will appear behind you. Use Nightmare to break the wall here to reveal another area containing Secret Mission #4. You will need to go up the steps to get the vantage point.


After fighting the Empusa Queen head forward and then jump on to the platform above you to find a Purple Orb Fragment.


After defeating the second Empusa Queen, head forward to the end of the sewer and bank left for find a Gold Orb.

Next you’ll find Secret Mission #5 by going up the lava lift (this will be the second one you’ve used), and jumping off to the right before you reach the top. Use the Grim Grips to get to a landing up above. Drop down, and step on the spot to reveal the Secret Mission directly where you just dropped down.

After this you can take the Grim Grip to your left and go up to the top of the lava lift to find a Gold Orb.


Head towards the next blood doorway and kill the enemy behind it before going through to reveal a Blue Orb Fragment.


After using the phone to call Nico, there is a ledge you can jump up near her van that has a Gerbera Devil Trigger. Jump up to it, and then use it to jump across to a darkened ledge. Jump above the ledge to reveal some Red Empusas and a Gold Orb.

Immediately after, in this same area, jump onto the stairs at the back and look back at the entrance to find Secret Mission #6.


After proceeding into the crypt area, drop down the hole and summon Nightmare by the large door to smash it down. Defeat the enemies inside to reveal a Purple Orb Fragment.

Next is Secret Mission #7, which is located through another jagged teeth door in the room with enemies that has two of these doors. Taking the right-hand one from where you entered this area will take you here. The best way to complete this mission is to wait for the Death Scissors to attack and then attacking with your sword at the same time and then quickly firing your Pistols or Shotgun.


The left-hand jagged teeth door holds a Gold Orb. If you don’t finish the fight in time, just reload from the last checkpoint as it is just before this location.

  • Purple Orb Fragments: 1
  • Gold Orbs: 1

After coming out of the other dimension head forward and when you come to a short cutscene head down the left path (which is a dead end blocked by roots). Turn right and drop over the edge to find a Purple Orb Fragment.

Take the high road through the pink spikes, hugging the left, and you will see the Gold Orb up above on the left. You’ll need to use Gerbera or have the triple jump unlocked to make it up there. Or you can attempt to use the Grim Grips on the ride side, but they are hard to use.


After making your way down, there are a bunch of glowing platforms you must make your way across to get to another Gold Orb. You can use the Gerbera arm to get there, which the level gives you plenty of.


Once you get to the Divinity Statue you can go two ways. If you go one way then you will gain a shortcut scene nearly immediately that shows you how to use the Punch Line Jet. This will take you to Secret Mission #11.


Just above Secret Mission #11 is a Blue Orb Fragment. But in order to get there you need to use Punch Line and take the more difficult path. You need to get your Stylish rank up in order to make it to the top, so kill a few enemies and then go. B Rank was enough to get there.


Further on ahead, by a ways is a room that has an Ice Caster enemy on a platform and some other enemies. After defeating them there will be a Grim Grip that you can use to go up to the right to find a Blue Orb Fragment. It’s past the Firebats.

Up ahead you will find a room where you can jump across using a breakable platform, or you can go down. Make your way down and fight a group of enemies at the bottom, instead of going across, and then make your way down carefully to a Purple Orb Fragment. This is the last one in the game.


Now, reload from the checkpoint again and make your way down to above the Purple Orb Fragment, but go on the opposite side of this area. There will be a breakable platform and a Red Orb Tree. Just through the opening, you can drop down twice to a ledge and look up and back to find Secret Mission #12. You will need the Dr. Faust upgrades for this.


Now, retry the mission from the checkpoint and then head across this same room that you spawn in front, across the platform that breaks. Make your way down and you will come to a Blue Orb Fragment. Devil Trigger in Trickster form, and jump and dash and then jump again and hold “X” to glide across to the fragment.
