The son of Sparda has always had a thing for huge arsenals, and DmC keeps that tradition alive with a host of unique weaponry. Of course, Dante’s trusty demon-slicing sword Rebellion is back, as are his cherished Ebony and Ivory dual pistols. The iconic moves that act as his bread-and-butter damage dealers, like the Stinger, Helmbreaker, and Million Stab, are back, meaning your muscle memory for go-to combos will still be valuable.
Dante’s new toys play off his mixed heritage, with respective angel and demon weaponry assigned to the shoulder buttons. On the demonic side, you’ve got the slow-but-brutal Arbiter axe, which can slice even the toughest enemies to shreds, and some slick molten Eryx gauntlets that let you hilariously annihilate monster faces with charged Falcon Punches. The angelic armory offers up the lightning-fast Osiris scythe, which can rack up loads of damage in the blink of an eye, and the Aquila, spinning blades that enable area-of-effect violence. You can also switch between the two sides on the fly, ensuring that there’ll be hundreds of ways to combo into an SSS grade.
