Mission 4 Tips & Tricks
1. Dying Enemies Have Purple Glow
When using Shadow and Griffon, V needs to finish off the enemies by himself as his summons cannot. Dying enemies will have a purple glow & aura so go near them and use V to finish them off.
3. Use Gambit To Quickly Finish Off Dying Enemies
Utilize V's Gambit skill to teleport you towards a dying enemy that you've locked on to instantly finish them off. This makes the fight much faster and makes it easier to crowd control a well-populated battleground.
5. Summon Nightmare When DT Gauge Is Level 3
While fighting, V will fill up his Devil Trigger (DT) gauge. When it hits Level 3, he can summon Nightmare - a separate being that attacks on its own until the DT gauge runs out.

Niddhog Boss Tips & Strategy
Defeat Tentacles - Hint & Tips
Destroying Tentacles Will Bring Niddhog Down
At the start of the fight, Niddhog will have 3 tentacles that will attack alongside it. Focus fire on these and defeat them - this will bring Niddhog down to the ground so you can attack it using Shadow.
Use Gambit To Finish Off Tentacles
When the tentacles start glowing purple, you can use V's Gamit skill to warp towards it and instantly finish them off. This will help you bring Niddhog down to the ground faster.
Go All Out When Niddhog Falls
When Niddhog falls, unleash all of V's firepower on it! It will be down for a good few seconds, allowing you to deal a lot of damage to its health bar.
Watch Out For Niddhog's Rush Move
Niddhog will do a rush move that will hit you even if you're a distance away. Lock onto it to dodge and watch out when it's drawing up for the attack.
Niddhog Respawns His Tentacles
When Niddhog gets back up again, its tentacles will respawn, just repeat the process of defeating its tentacles first then going ham on it when its down to defeat it.
