Dante’s got a ton of new surprises up his sleeve, along with some interesting fighting styles. One of his new weapons allows him to fight with his fists and feet. Here’s how to switch between the blow and kick mode when using Dante’s Balrog in Devil May Cry 5.

The Balrog is one of Dante’s latest toys in DMC 5, which is a pair of gauntlets that can beat the life out of an enemy. While they aren’t swords, they still pack quite a punch with each hit.

An interesting thing about this weapon is that it comes with two styles, basically letting you either punch or kick enemies. Both methods each have their own movesets and attacks, so you’ll want to pick the best one depending on the situation you’re in on the battlefield.

Luckily, switching styles with the Balrog is incredibly simple once you know how to do it in Devil May Cry 5. The first thing you’ll want to do is lock on to an enemy using RB/R1 then pressing back and X/Triangle.

Dante should automatically change modes right away after doing this in Devil May Cry 5. If you want to switch back, simply input the same commands to do so.

The kicking style involves plenty of cartwheels and flips along with launchers and diving attacks. Punching, on the other hand, has plenty of boxing-based moves involves jabs, uppercuts, and precise strikes.

The Balrog has a special Ignition mode that lights up and deals extra fire damage to your enemies, which activates whenever you continue to punch enemies or perform special dances.

That’s pretty much everything you need to know about how to switch between blow and kick mode using Dante’s Balrog in Devil May Cry 5. For more tips and tricks on the game, take a look at our expansive wiki with other useful guides.
