S Rank on Human mode! I’m proud of this okay!

If you haven’t already, you can work your way through S Ranking all 20 levels in Devil May Cry 5. Since I am pretty bad at the game I will point you in the direction of other internet resource which can help you get a firmer grasp on mechanics needed to S Rank levels. This post by user Reddit User itzlandry is starting to get into the mechanics of each character and should be given a read.

Wait For DLC Content

If you’ve done everything up to this point, congratulations! You are among the 0.01% of players playing DMC5. While I imagine you are currently busy speedrunning the game or posting insane combo videos to the socials, my last suggestion on this list may still apply to you!

Although the Capcom producer Matt Walker has stated that there are currently no plans for post-launch DLC (besides the Bloody Palace mode), I full expect us to see more content coming. Given the game’s positive sales (second best PC launch for Capcom), I imagine they will put together more DLC content for players to take part in. What form that takes is beyond me, but MHW like fests would be pretty awesome. Until they announce anything, all we can do is wait (and work on everything listed above).
