- Gigapede only has 2 forms of
attacks purple orbs that come after you in pairs, and a tall horizontal or vertical blue beam that'll hit you only if you are on ground level.
- You start the battle on a ledge facing
Gigapede right below you, so jump right
on it and start slashing. Also, Spam Spiral Swords if you have enough DT.
- Shoot Summoned Swords at Gigapede
when you can't reach him. It does more damage
than Dante's handguns.
- The fastest way to kill this dude is to
get on top of him, preferably right on its
head, and then slash like mad with Yamato. Sometimes he'll flip around so that
you fall off him, but keep slashing and
shooting anyway. Since Vergil has no Air
Hike, it's not easy to jump onto Gigapede right from the ground. Instead, climb up onto the platforms and jump
onto Gigapede when he passes beneath you.
If you already have LV2 Darkslayer, simply
use Trick Up.
- Watch out for the purple orbs. They're avoidable
but timing is important so keep rolling
and/or jumping away. Depending on where
the orbs come from, hiding behind
the walls may also work. Another possible
way is to deflect them
towards Gigapede using any melee attack.
If the orbs hit Gigapede,
he actually takes decent damage.
(You'll hear a 'ping' if it hits)
