(The rules here are specific to this category. Go to this page to find the rules that apply to all Devil May Cry 2 speedruns.)

  • You must play on Lucia's Disc.
  • Timer stops on the final hit of Arius-Argosax.


Learning a speedrun in Devil May Cry 2 may seem to daunting, but the game most of the time is generous once you understand and get familiar with the controls. Unlike Dante, Lucia is extremely movement heavy.

You should absolutely watch the Tutorial videos by LonerHero, which breaks down each room very well. Once you are done watching do an initial run and do the following things:

  • Follow the Written supplement without checking any top runners. This helps you to understand the flow of the game.
  • Make savefiles before each part that you probably have issues with. You can backup and copy the savefiles ( Generally in <Steam-folder>\userdata\<user-id>\631510\remote\ ) into a seperate folder.
  • Make splits. Download a program like Livesplit and setup your splits. It does not matter how bad they are in your first run.

Once you have completed your first run and made savefiles practice the parts you are least confident with then try another run. When you get more confident you should stop getting safety routes and start tighten your currency.
