Beating Tateobesu on Must Die
This boss is very hard for Lucia/Trish on Must Die mode because it always stays invisible. To beat it by firing randomly will take a long time and you will probably die. An easy way to beat it is with Lucia. Swim up to one of the top corners and continually drop cranky bombs. While this might take a while, it's a fairly easy way to beat it if you are having trouble.
chaos heart
in mission 7 when you get the flame heart go through the door in the lava in the next room and get the vendetta once you get it there is another hallway somewhere in the room it's a semi-long hallway and it has a blue light coming from it go down it to get the chaos heart i do not have any clue what it does though

How to defeat Argosax of Chaos in Harder modes
Beat the bosses in this order, using the following methods.

1. Phantom: Firstly dodge all of its attacks. After it finishes, it will pause for a while. This is your chance to go up to the head and give it a combo. Don't get too carried away, otherwise it can blow you away with a fireball that can cause heavy damage. When you see fire forming on the Phantom's mouth, I recommend you stay away. While it shoots this fireball, keep jumping and shooting at the Phantom until it stops.

2. Orangguerra: This is probably the most easiest and stupid boss. Roll to the boss's right armpit. Then keep slashing like hell with your sword. If Dante woulds aside while doing sword combos, quick move him back or you could get hit by those giant wind balls.

3. Jokatgulm: The easiest way to beat this boss is to stand where Jokatgulm is, but closer to where Phantom was, and equip Submachine guns and keep firing. This may take a way, and if you wanna end this quickly, just dodge the boss's tentacle attacks and when it stops, give it a combo if you can.

4.Furiataurus: Now move to the left a little bit but not too much. Just stand there and keep firing. Thats the safest way IMO. If your desperate, strike the boss whenever it stops attacking.

5. Griffon: You should have alot of DT now. My suggestion is to DT and keep attacking. Make sure you have Healing heart equiped. If you revert back to normal form, just dodge his beams and shoot at the same time.

6. Nefasturris: This is a really tricky battle. My suggestion is too keep a distance and keep firing. If his attacks come near you, move away. If you have still DT, use it to end the battle quicker.

get stacks of red orbs the easy way
I'm surprised no one has got onto this handy little one. Find a mission where its possible to get loads of stylish combos and/or loads of enemies. Go through the level like normal but when you near the end,press start and restart the level. You will restart the mission with the amount of orbs you had when you restarted. Blue and yellow orbs dont re-appear but its an easy way of getting red orbs so leveling up weapons is done easily. Enjoy.
