Devil May Cry 5 has a lot of hidden items in its missions, and one of the most important is the gold orbs. These gold orbs have the power to bring Nero, V, and Dante back from death, allowing them to continue the fight. Having a stockpile of gold orbs is important, so finding their locations in each mission is a good idea.
Gold orb locations
Most missions in Devil May Cry 5 have at least one gold orb that can be collected. These can be found either on the main path or off in a secret area. Gold orbs can also be earned by having another player give you a “Stylish!” rating after a co-op section. A gold orb can also be bought from Nico’s shop, for a high price.
A gold orb can be found in mission 3 on the rooftop near the hidden Grim Grip point that must be shot to be activated.

This gold orb can be found when playing as Dante during mission 12. The gold orb is found on one of the ledges around the blood fountain. To reach the gold orb, players will need to make their way through each of the hallways, ensuring that blood flows down the tracks to the fountains.
Another gold orb can be found in mission 13 when playing as Dante. After the fight in the large room with all the bloody enemy spawners, drop down a hole and run through a cave covered in yellow, honey-like substance. Run to the top and across a bridge to pick up this gold orb.

This gold orb can be found during mission 16 when playing as Dante. Defeat the first group of enemies and then progress into the next area, across the gap is the gold orb in a cave. Use the yellow platforms to get closer and then the Trickster style to dash across. The Air Hike ability might be needed to cross the gap.
There are dozens of gold orbs to find in Devil May Cry 5 and each will allow you to come back to life without any penalty. Collecting them all is important, especially when tackling the harder difficulty levels. Be sure to collect all the blue orb fragments, as having more health will ensure you avoid having to use gold orbs.
