Mission 8 Tips & Tricks
1~19. Getting To Urizen - Tips
Combat Heavy Mission
When travelling to Urizen you will encounter several types of enemies. Make sure to stock up on items and Devil Breakers for the long road ahead.
2~6, 18. Defeating Empusas - Tips
Not That Hard To Defeat
Empusas are not that difficult when it comes to combat. You can chain combos with them easily, and they don't attack much nor hit very hard. When they do attack, you can easily sidestep away, and continue your combo after.
Watch Out For The Empusa Queen Spawn
Sometimes, an Empusa Queen will spawn. These enemies can take more hits, and their attacks pack quite a punch. Your best bet is to counter them right after they attack since there is a window where they pause after they lunge at you.
2, 10, 14. Defeating Raptors - Tips
Constantly Be On The Move Against Raptors
Raptors are fast creatures that do not normally have slow wind ups to their attacks. Make sure to keep an eye on Raptors that are crawling dangerously close to you, or getting ready to jump to avoid there pounces!
8. Defeating Hell Cainas - Tips
Be Ready To Dodge Attacks They Telegraph
Hell Cainas, although slow, will sometimes attack as a group. When you're focusing on one of these enemies, make sure to keep an eye on your surroundings. Some Hell Cainas may be winding up their attack on your blind side!Check Controls and Character Movesets Here!
Use Your Devil Breakers To Single Out Enemies
There may be times when you find yourself in a pinch due to the groups of enemies rushing you. You can use your Devil Breakers to clear out these waves. Charging up Devil Breakers can even clear out groups of enemies.Check All Devil List & Guide Here!
10, 14. Defeating Baphomets - Tips
Fight Baphomets One-On-One
Baphomets may spawn with other groups of enemies. Since they are elusive little creatures, it would be hard to focus your attacks on them for the time being. Eliminate the other easy to kill enemies until only you and the Baphomet are standing.
Watch Out For Baphomet Ice Projectiles
Baphomets mainly use ranged attacks when fighting. They telegraph these attacks by summoning 5 ice crystals, and then sending them towards you. As soon as they summon these crytals, be ready to dodge.
11. Heading To The Next Area - Tips
Statue Can Be Found Here
Once you get to the next area, make sure to visit the Statue to customize your loadout. Here, you can buy more Devil Breakers and items if you are running low on equipment.
12~13. Defeating Scudo & Proto Angelos - Tips
Focus On Killing Scudo Angelos First
Scudo Angelos are the lesser enemy between the two. They are much weaker, and can be taken down quickly. Use your grapple to pull them in close, and break their shields. This will help you get through their defenses.
Attack Proto Angelos Cautiously
Proto Angelos have big swords that have a wide range. Attacking them from a distance using Devil Breakers will keep them staggered. This gives you enough time to get in close and get your attacks in.
15. While Going Up The Platform - Tips
Secret Mission Available
While heading up the platform, take a look at where the lava is facing to find a series of objects that you can grapple to. If done successfully, you will then land on a platform where a secret mission is waiting to be completed.Check Out The All Secret Mission List

Gold Orb At The Top Of The Second Lava Elevator

12,16. Blue Orb Fragment Locations

Urizen Boss Tips & Strategy
Attack The Red Rift Near Urizen
Urizen will summon a red rift next to him that he will mainly use to to attack you. Focus your attacks on this object to trigger a cutscene.
You Are Not Supposed To Defeat Urizen
After the cutscene, Urizen will stand up from his throne, and continue the fight. You are not supposed to win in this fight. Once you lose, you will trigger another cutscene, and end the mission.
