Devil May Cry 5 How to Defeat King Cerberus

Fight the Gatekeeper unleashed

Those who played Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening are well-aware of Cerberus. It was the first boss and the first demon to show Dante respect. Well, his superior is in Devil May Cry V and he's not as modest. Here's how to defeat King Cerberus.

Unlike his lesser King Cerberus is gifted with 3 heads sporting a different element; fire, electric, and ice. None of the heads can be cut off and he can only use one at a time.

Ice changes the landscape and Cerberus can summon ice stalagmites from the ceiling but lacks melee. Fire is a close-range fighter with powerful melee attacks but lacks range. And electric can use tracking orbs. Each transformation causes a massive AOE blast before the change but you can see it happening, with Cerberus slowing charging the change and what head is taking over.

For electric, use Trickster to avoid the orbs and put in a few good hits. When in ice use gunslinger to cause long-range damage while avoiding ice. And in fire swordmaster is the best option while you evade his close range attacks. 

Cerberus is powerful but not undefeatable. Change your tactics with each head, avoiding the blast, and take it slow.

Devil May Cry V is now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. Check out our review here.
