DMC Osiris Upgrades

Osiris is an angelic scythe that Dante has inherited from his mother. It can be used to deliver a series of attacks different from other weapons described so far and more suitable for large crowds of enemies. When charged up, it can deliver more powerful attacks. Dante can deploy the following Osiris moves.

Karma allows Dante to create a whirlwind of blades that slashes at enemies around Dante.

When using the Cleaver move, Dante swings the scythe around his body, cutting enemies in front and around him to shreds.

Prop allows Dante to spin the scythe like a propeller, damaging enemies at the end of the propeller. Prop can be upgraded to a more powerful version of the ability, called Shredder and Shredder level 2 (self explanatory; basically shreds enemies).

Hanger allows Dante to become airborne and launch wide sweeping attacks on the enemies. It can be upgraded to double up and then double up level 2. Airborne moves are particularly helpful when Dante's hidden power Devil Trigger is unlocked.

Rake allows Dante to hook enemies below Dante and then forcefully lift them into the air. It can upgraded to level 2.

Not to be confused with Rake, Raze launches and damages enemies in the air in a sweeping, skybound move. Raze can be improved to level 2.

Streak allows for a forward lunging attack that culminates in a spin attack. It can be upgraded to level 2.

Feed has three levels. In the basic level of feed, Dante must attack enemies to reach full charge. Once fully charged, Osiris attacks can cause damage bonus which will increase as the feed charge increases.

Upgrade and then unlock the weapons moves for Dante's favorite fighting style and then combine them to get stylish points and even more experience points and better upgrades.

Do save some upgrade points for the more stylish, helpful and powerful weapons that will be unlocked in the latter missions of the game. Weapons that can be unlocked include Enyx, Aquila and Revenant.
