How to Dodge?
The sideways dodge, is also the simplest. Here’s how to do it: Hold down the right shoulder button on your controller.
Then, hit A and at the same time, push the left joystick left to dodge left and right to dodge right.
You can actually hit all three at the same time but given that the right shoulder button activates lock on, it’s handy to keep your finger on that button when fighting powerful foes.
If you’re playing as Dante or Nero you can use this move to dodge most medium to long range enemy attacks. Some enemies have an attack that sweeps from left to right along the ground, in which case dodging is less useful and you’re better off jumping.V also has a dodge but it’s a bit mediocre.
Dodging in Devil May Cry 5 is going to be different depending on which character you are using. Whether you’re using Dante, Nero, or V, you can dodge by using a combination of locking on to a target and then pressing a button on the controller. There are also character specific dodges that you can use as well. This guide will explain how to dodge in Devil May Cry 5 with Dante, Nero, and V.
How to Dodge with Dante?
Dodging with Dante in Devil May Cry 5 is easiest done by changing his style. Dante can dart back and forth when using the Trickster Style. To use Trickster you have to press up on the d-pad. Once in Trickster Style you can then use the B/Circle button to dodge or dash.
If you are using Trickster you can also dash forward with Dante by pressing forward on the left stick and then pressing the RB/R1 Button to lock on to an enemy and then pressing the B Button. Dante will vanish and then re-appear directly in front of an enemy.
When you are on the ground you can also roll from side to side by pressing the RB/R1 button and then moving the left stick horizontally (left or right) and pressing the A/Cross Button.
How to Dodge With Nero?
Like Dante, Nero has some moves to get him out of trouble, but not nearly as many options. Dodging with Nero can be done by holding the RB/R1 button and the using the Left Stick in either horizontal direction (left or right) and also pressing the A/Cross Button will perform a side roll which Nero can also press the X/Square Button during to shoot while evading.
Nero’s Table Hopper Dodge can also be upgraded to include a dodge after the roll away from danger. This alt-dodge mechanic uses the same control input as the Roll, but it’s used as a timing move that needs to be input before being hit.
How to Dodge with V?
V is the least agile of the DMC Trio. Because of that, you’re going to want to keep your distance when fighting with him. V does have a doge move though. Like the other characters, if you press and hold the RB/R1 button and then press the stick left or right while pressing the A/Cross Button you will dash from side to side with V.
One thing to keep in mind though. V’s dash move cannot be used if Shadow (The Cat) is immobilized or stalemated.
