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

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

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

Be Ready To Dodge The 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!

10, 14. Defeating Baphomets - Tips

Fight Baphomets One-On-One

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

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.

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

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

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.
