Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Pain Boxes ‘Gems Locations Guide

By   /   Feb 28, 2014

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, although Dragon the Dracula is immortal, the fatal blows from fearsome creatures will still kill you.

But doing so becomes insanely hard if you continue to sacrifice your blood to various Pain Boxes found at different areas of the game. These Pain Boxes will not only grant you with a health boost but will also increase your Void Magic and Chaos Magic.

Sacrificing your blood on five specific Pain Boxes will increase a chunk of your Void Magic, Chaos Magic, or Health.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Pain Boxes Locations

You will come across several Pain Boxes in plain sight but you won’t be able to reach them without some special powers which usually unlock near the end of the game.

After the game is completed, you’ll be able to freely explore different areas and reach all Pain Boxes for different Achievements/Trophies.

To make it relatively easier, I’ll referring to certain locations in the game. These locations are displayed right under your mini-map.
