  • Defeating King Minos

    When the battle begins, avoid his tail strikes when they appear from the ground by constantly moving or dodging. When he rears back to yell, press RB to hang on to the wall to avoid his screaming attack. Wait for him to lower his face, then attack his face until he exposes his belly. Attack the belly, then defeat the minions he sends out afterwards. Avoid his tail attacks again. Dodge his smashing fist shockwave attack. After he slams his fist into the ground, run up to him, and press RT, then successfully complete the subsequent quick time event. Attack his belly again, kill another wave of his minions, and avoid more fist attacks. Keep attacking his face until he gets stunned and his tongue appears. Press RT, then successfully complete the quick time event to defeat him.

  • Easy "Burning Eyes" achievement

    After ripping off and throwing Charon's head while riding the demon, you will find it shortly afterwards stuck in a wall. Go up to Charon's head as he is talking to you, and press RB to push it out of the wall and back into the abyss and get the "Burning Eyes" achievement.

  • Easy "Clear Path Not Lost" achievement ("Dark Forest" DLC)

  • Easy "Poetry in Motion" achievement

    When you enter the Fraud Circle towards the end of the game, you will be faced with ten challenges on ten levels. The fourth challenge (the save point is Malebolge 4) requires you to stay in the air for eight seconds. Instead of doing this, keep hitting the two demons until you get a 666 hit combo and the "Poetry in Motion" achievement. Note: This can be done easier with the "Coin Of Plutus" and "Wings Of Furie" relics. It should only take a few minutes to get the "Poetry in Motion" achievement by doing it this way. -From: Daniel
