Devil May Cry 5 Qliphoth Roots

Like the previous titles, Devil May Cry 5 features many boss fights and the trend for the difficulty remains the same.

Therefore, the first boss will be a breeze while the second one will get a little tougher and so with each boss fight, the game gets progressively difficult, preparing you for the final clash.

While the bosses get tougher and tougher, so does your equipment. With new things to unlock, you will be able to take out the enemy in style.

However, for the first boss, you will start out as Nero with the basic gear, the Red Queen and the Revolver. However, the basic equipment should suffice, especially for the series veterans for this fight.

Qliphoth Roots is kind of like a giant octopus on land. It stays in one position and only attacks with its long tentacles. Therefore, the only thing to keep an eye for is the Tentacle Attack.

Right off the bat, you will notice that one of the sections of its body is a glowing red bubble. Focus on that since it is the only area you can damage.

It is very easy to spot, but if you still do not know what I am talking about, you can use the lock-on button to lock on it. The metal prosthesis is not of much use here, you will be dealing most of the damage with Nero’s sword, the Red Queen.

Use various combos like jumping in the air while attacking or shooting the revolver between attacks to stack up Style Points for a better grade.

You also have to watch out for the creature’s Tentacle Attack. They are very easy to notice and will sway back when they are ready to attack and then they attempt to hit you.

You can easily brush them off but doing a dodge and then continue with your punishment.

Additionally, if you do not feel like, you will make it, you can always retreat to a safe distance and use the Revolver to inflict deal further damage. The Revolver does not output a significant amount of damage, but if used for a while, the damage adds up.
