How to Check Enemy Health in Devil May Cry 5

Recommended Videos

Developed by Capcom, Devil May Cry 5 is the latest entry in the popular action game series. It brings back fan-favorite characters like Nero and Dante, and also introduces a new playable character named V. Here’s what you need to know about how to check enemy health in Devil May Cry 5.

As you play through the various levels in the game, you’ll come across tougher enemies that may take a few extra hits to kill. If you want to know exactly how close you are to taking them down, though, there is an easy way of checking their health.

By holding down RB (or R1 on PS4), you’ll be able to lock on to an enemy, and this will also allow you to check enemy health.

When you’re locked on in Devil May Cry 5, a green ring will appear around the enemy, and that represents their health bar. The more you attack that particular enemy, the ring itself will start to deplete.

Once it’s fully depleted, that means their HP has dropped to zero, and you’ll have effectively killed them.

So if you want to check enemy health bars in the game, just lock on to them and watch the green ring.

Bosses in the game have their own health bars as well, which can be helpful for letting you know just how close you are to ending the fight, and this will allow you to plan your next moves a little better.

In general, it’s a pretty good idea to lock on to your enemies anyway, just so you can focus on your priority targets while also keeping an eye on enemy health.

That’s all you need to know about how to check enemy health in Devil May Cry 5. Be sure to search for Twinfinite and check our Devil May Cry 5 guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
