How to Get Red Orbs Fast in Devil May Cry 5
In Devil May Cry 5 you spend the vast majority of your time laying waste to foes, and looking damn good while doing it. While this is innately satisfying in and of itself, there is another reason you might want to play well: you will be rewarded at the end of each mission with those sweet, sweet orbs. Here’s how to get red orbs fast in Devil May Cry 5.
Red orbs are the currency of the DMC universe, formed from the crystallized blood of demons. They are used for many things, but their primary purpose is to upgrade your characters by unlocking powerful upgrades and special moves.
How to Earn them Quickly
With every demon you slay, you will earn red orbs, and this is going to be your primary source of them. However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind in order to maximize your yield: broadly speaking you should explore each environment fully and engage enemies in a stylish and efficient manner.
By venturing off the beaten path, you can find chunks of red orbs, and this will add nicely to the haul you take home at the end of each mission. Similarly, keep an eye out for special Red Empusa enemies, easily identifiable by their large red abdomens.
These special variants of the most basic enemies will attempt to flee from your wrath and escape by burrowing underground. Don’t let them.
You will also earn plenty of red orbs by completing missions in an efficient and stylish manner. This means avoiding taking damage, and destroy enemies with your most powerful combos.
Dying will reduce your overall ranking, so if you are chasing that big score and fall in the attempt, it is more efficient to restart the mission than to try again from a checkpoint.
Dante will also find a weapon in the late-game that is powered by red orbs, and skillful use of it will increase the amount you bring home. As it uses the orbs ammunition, however, it can be very easy to wast orbs if not done correctly.
Bear in mind, red orbs are persistent and across missions, and you can replay missions as often as you like. So with a little patience and some hard work, every ability in the upgrade store can be yours in good time.
