Devil May Cry 5 – How to Farm Red Orbs

Break Red Orb Chunks
Throughout the game if you venture off the beaten path. You will be able to find Red Orb chunks mostly on bushes which if you destroy will add to your haul of Red Orbs.
Red Orb Trees
Hidden throughout the game are trees which are similar to the Red Orb chunks but a lot larger. And they cannot be destroyed with one hit like the Red Orb chunks. Destroying these trees requires a series of the hit to drop Red Orbs. You need to remember you only have several seconds to deal the damage needed for the Red Orbs to drop before the tree becomes corrupt. And you will not be able to collect any of the remaining Red Orbs. The best strategy therefore when dealing with these trees is to use your most powerful abilities on them.
Your main source for collecting Red Orbs is through combat and by performing combos to reach a higher rank. Basically the more techniques and moves you use to defeat an enemy. They will drop the more Red Orbs. Not using any continues will also multiply the number of Red Orbs you get at the end of the mission by 1.2x. The amount of Red Orbs you receive as your reward is determined at the end of a mission. Check out our Raising your Style Rank page to learn more about getting Style Points and getting a higher rank.
