Now Playing: Devil May Cry 5 - S Rank Gameplay Montage With Dante, Nero, and V

The Legendary Bounty Hunter Dante has his largest arsenal of weapons yet in Devil May Cry 5. Along with his old favorites including Rebellion and his twin handguns, he'll also find new armaments including a demonic hat that uses red orbs as ammunition, and a powerful motorcycle that transforms into massive chainsaw swords. However, there's one weapon in the game that can be very easy to miss, opening up access to a set of firearms, that when combined together, form one of the game's most powerful guns.

For some background, one of the weapons that Dante will acquire later in the game (and seen in the many trailers) is the Kalina Ann II--a heavily modified rocket launcher that was specially built for the bounty hunter Lady. The original Kalina Ann was also a weapon that Dante could use in Devil May Cry 3. The second version of the weapon was intended as a replacement after the original was lost in a battle. The souped-up Kalina Ann II can fire off powerful missiles and mini-rockets, causing serious damage to all surrounding enemies. However, there's a way to track down and acquire the original Kalina Ann in one of the missions.

In Mission 11, you'll control Dante as he explores a ruined town. During the mid-point of the level, you'll come to a massive tower that's tangled in demonic tendrils. Attacking the first blood sac will kill the first set of tendrils, causing the building to sink. Below the platform are two more blood sacs. Though you can destroy the one closest to the exit to proceed with the level, there's another one near the tower that will cause it to sink further. Destroying this particular sac will also open up access to the Secret Mission in the area. You can also find an opening in the section below the floor that leads to a room. Enter the room and approach the broken table to find an item. Picking it up will grant Dante the original Kalina Ann rocket launcher.

If you have both rocket launchers in your possession, Dante will combine them together to form the Double Kalina Ann firearm. Essentially wielding both rocket launchers in tandem, switching off between shots, the high-powered weapon is the Devil Hunter's most powerful firearm. In addition to firing off rockets with great speed and power, Dante can merge both weapons together to open up new moves, including a powerful laser attack. In Gunslinger style, the Double Kalina Ann's move-set and power increase further, adding a variety of other options in a fight.

This weapon offers a ridiculous amount of firepower, but if you find that wielding two rocket launchers at once is simply too much to handle, you can adjust your loadout to use only one--choosing either the original Kalina Ann or its upgrade. Still, the Double Kalian Ann is a surprisingly versatile weapon, offering quick, crowd-clearing moves, and also powerful single-enemy attacks at your fingertips.

found it, but never used it nor the dual one. i only used the shottie to shoot of Vergil's arrows in the boss fight (spoilers sort of i guess, but c'mon, of course we fight Vergil at some point), didn't use guns much besides that (as Dante). i found i used Nero's gun more, since he has less combat options in general. Dante is so much more versatile.

@pookeynoodle2019: Okay stop shouting. But I agree, I found DMC3 and DMC4 levels more memorable, but here they got rid of all the annoying bits.

You can clearly see the influence of DmC, as the director actually liked it. I feel they said: Let's do something similar but not copy them, and maybe they went too similar at some point, but decided to cut back, cuz in the concept art you see the scene of an upside down world with the broken bridge, sounds familiar.

That being said, I loved everything else and I don't miss those annoying platforming bits or getting lost in the forest XD

Interesting. I found it in a different place. Spoilers below!

When you fight Urizen as Dante for the first time, he has already beaten Lady and Trish, you can just pick the rocket launcher off the ground.

So when I got the other one later "in place of the lost one" I was like, but it is not lost lol But okay.

@CRAPCOM1926: Truth be told, I actually missed this weapon on my first time going through the game. I've also seen others state that they missed it as well. The game doesn't outright tell you to backtrack during this section, so I figured it would be a worth a shout.
