'DMC 5' Secret Mission Locations: How to Find Side Quests

Through the story of Devil May Cry 5, players will come across side missions that offer up some neat detours on your journey.

These Secret Missions are marked by pentagrams found lying around certain areas of stages that players need to line up to activate. Once you've found a glowing red beacon, turn the camera around to find one half of a pentagram. Keep moving the camera until you find the second half of the pentagram and line it up. This will activate the Secret Mission.

Whether it's a time trial to see how fast you can take out demons or maintaining your rank, the Secret Mission in Devil May Cry 5 will test the skills you've learned as Nero, V and Dante.

For your trouble, you'll receive a Blue Orb for completing each Secret Mission which increases your Vitality. This will come in handy, especially toward the end game. But don't worry if you can't complete the Secret Mission when you first find it, as long as you activate it you can always go to the main menu and select the quest from there.

There are 12 Secret Missions in total in Devil May Cry 5. Here's all their locations.
