In Devil May Cry 5 you can equip Devil Breakers for Nero. They replace his right hand and can be used in combat to trigger special moves and combos. One thing you may have wondered is how to switch to the active devil breaker that you want.
To Change the Devil Breaker:
- Press L1 (PS4) / LB (Xbox One) to destroy your active Devil Breaker until you get to the one you want in your inventory.
- Or pick up a new Devil Breaker of the type you seek, assuming your inventory isn’t full.
- Change it at a shop (car or divinity statue) during missions or before missions.
Sadly, there is no way to change Devil Breaker with a simple button press. The next best thing is to destroy the ones you don’t need, which is a waste but that’s how the game handles it. If you like one particular devil breaker, just buy it from the shop and equip it in all slots. You can gain more devil breaker slots by upgrading the skill “Devil Breaker”.
