Rebellion- Dante's default sword and the most balanced of the swords
in terms of reach, speed, and power. This sword is not very powerful
at low levels, but it is more than enough to get you through the
first part of the game.
Vendetta- Another one of Dante's swords. This is Dante's most
powerful sword, but it also has the shortest reach and the slowest
movement. A must have for bosses. This sword is found in mission
7 in the oil derrick.
Merciless- The last sword that Dante can find. This one has a
slightly longer reach than any of the other swords. Found in mission
11 above the ceiling spikes, or in mission 14 near where Dante
jumped that gap on his motorcycle.
Cutlaseer- Lucia's default weapons. These blades have a short
reach which means that you'll have to get up close and personal
when using them.
Klyamores- These blades have a longer reach than Lucia's default
weapon. They also seem to be a little more powerful. Once you
get these, you shouldn't need to use the Cut's again. You can
find these in mission 3, in the same room that Dante first fought
Zambak- The most powerful blades that Lucia can find. These blades
are strong but slower than her other blades. Still, they are a
must have. You can find these in mission 10 near where Dante jumped
over the broken road with his motorcycle.
(note that all of the firearms have unlimited ammo, just like
in the first game.)
Ebony & Ivory- Dante's trusted firearms make a return and
they seem to have been improved since his last adventure. Dante
can now shoot multiple targets at once with the guns. While DTed,
these pistols become automatic. All you have to do is hold down
square, and the guns will fire at lightning speed.
This is Dante's default weapon
Sub-machineguns- Dual sub-machineguns that Dante can use just
like Ebony & Ivory. Very useful because of their incredibly
fast rate of fire. You can pick enemies apart in seconds with
these guns. Very useful against the final bosses. There is a small
amount of recoil when you stop firing. These guns
are found in mission 11 but if you miss them, you can pick them
up again in mission 17.
Shotgun- Just like the shotgun from the first game, this gun
packs a punch. It does however have a slower recoil than most
of the weapons, so if you prefer speed and maneuverability, stick
to the subs. If you have your dodging and timing down right however,
this weapon can become very deadly in your hands. The Shotgun
is found in mission 5.
Rocket Launcher- The most powerful weapon Dante can find, and
therefore the slowest and heaviest one too. This gun has a terrible
recoil, and you cannot fire this from the air. This gun is a must
have for some of the bosses in the game because of its sheer power.
The Rocket launcher is found in Mission 9. If you miss it, you
can pick it up again in Mission 14
Throwing knives- Lucia's default weapons. These knives are more
powerful than the handguns, and they work very well when Lucia
needs to perform a long range attack.
Darts- These are less powerful than the knives, but Lucia is
able to throw out multiple darts at a time. Leveling up causes
Lucia to throw more knives and increases the speed in which she
throws them. At higher levels, these are very useful when fighting
multiple enemies at once or flying enemies. They
can be found in mission two inside one of the breakable statues.
Cranky Bombs- These bombs can be set down or thrown depending
upon how hard you are holding down the left analog stick when
you throw them. These only come in handy if you are fighting a
large group of enemies in an enclosed room, like the Bloody Palace.
Other wise these things are too unpredictable to be practical.
These can be found in mission 5 inside a box in the plane.
Bow gun- This gun can only be used underwater. It fires a quick
burst of bolts at the enemy. This gun isn't that powerful, but
it’s the only choice you have when underwater. You can find
this in mission 6.
