Bayonetta 3 takes the adventures of this colorful witch to a new level, putting her and her allies against a threat of Multiversal levels. Armed with her trusty quartet of pistols, Bayonetta will have to travel to new worlds to save hers, aided by old and new friends.
The second part of the Cairo arc will see Bayonetta chasing a reflection of this world’s Jeanne, trying to uncover the mystery of what happened in this world before your arrival, and where you can get the corresponding Chaos Gear.
Exit the cave until you find the first open area, and after a cutscene, you will find this new enemy, called Castellanus. Be sure to avoid its tendrils and use infernal attacks to hit the lowest nodes, until you destroy them all, otherwise, Bayonetta won’t be able to attack it with normal attacks. Once you expose its top part, is just a matter of being careful of its rotating blade, and you should be fine.
Once you’re done with Verse #1, look to your right and inside the building, and you will notice a purple portal. This verse will be a Challenge where you’ll have to destroy a wave of enemies under tricky terrain, before the timer runs out. Succeed on this, and you will obtain a Broken Moon Pearl as a reward.
- Enemies: Uncinus, Spissatus, Stratus
Right outside the building where Verse #2 is, you will see this golden Paradiso portal that will trigger a fight against a particular pair of enemies, called Grace and Glory. These two new enemies hit very very hard, inflict fire and electric damage, and are immensely fast, so do not rest on your laurels and pick them out one by one, or they will make a great team and you will be in hot water.
Keep going through a ruined bridge until you meet Jeanne’s reflection again, and after a short cutscene, you will find yourself in a new area. Keep moving through the cave until you find a more open area, and you will have to fight the reflection of the infernal demon Baal. This toad can hit you very hard and it moves really fast, and it has some powerful moves like a poison rain that will hit you no matter where you are. Be careful and hit it as much as you can, until it inevitably gets replaces by Jeanne’s reflection.
Jeanne will use her magic staff using some surprisingly long-ranged melee attacks, and she can also use soundwaves to stun you from afar, so use your witch time as efficiently as you can and do not let her gain momentum. Defeat her, and you will be able to use the Baal demon as your own invocation, for a while.
Proceed to the underground temple and continue until you find a barred door, and you must kill multiple Humilis using the Poison Rain from Baal. Keep moving and walk up a few sets of stairs until a cutscene plays and a new enemy called Radiatus is introduced. These are more aggressive, short-ranged versions of the Cavum, so keep that in mind and do not position in front of them in case they shoot at you. Flank them as much as you can until they’re dead, and you will be able to move on.
This fight also serves as a tutorial to learn Baal’s controls, so familiarize yourself with them.
Proceed until you find a room with a pond of poison and several platforms. Use Baal and jump to lower the platforms, and they will reveal sections of a set of stairs that will take you outside. But before doing that, wait until the west pair of stairs go back to their place, and you will find a new secret room, with a purple portal. This verse will be a Challenge where you’ll have to destroy several enemies before the timer runs out, and using Baal’s Poison Rain should trivialize it. Succeed on this, and you will obtain a Broken Witch Heart as a reward.
Now outside, a cutscene will play and the last verse will trigger a fight between you and a Murus. This sturdy enemy is not the fastest, but it hits like a truck with its wing axes, its crystallized spinning attack, and two massive laser beams. The best you can do is to use Witch Time at all times and hit it as often as you can until the Climax sequence triggers.
In each chapter, there are five objectives called Bewitchments, and they vary from chapter to chapter. These can involve fulfilling certain conditions like developing perfectly in combat, destroying particular objects in the background, or just finding particular secrets.
|#1 – Stand on top of the windmill tower||Very straightforward, climb to the top of the windmill tower right after the first Verse.|
|#2 – Destroy 5 Baal statues inside the temple||Inside the underground temple, find 5 Baal statues and break them.|
|#3 – Enter the hidden room inside the temple||Inside the underground temple, discover the hidden room by breaking the first right statue in the room with the poison pond.|
|#4 – Hit a Castellanus core while at least one segment is intact||Hit the Castellanus core during Verse #1 before you hit the last node. You can do this with your infernal demon.|
|#5 – Hit Murus with Baal’s poison rain||Use Baal’s Poison Rain during Verse#7|
Umbran Tears Of Blood
Across every chapter, you will find three animals called Umbran Tears Of Blood. Collecting the three of them in each chapter will unlock its alternative version, with new challenges and rewards.
|Umbran Cat||The Umbran Cat can be found on top of one of the central pillars in the room with the multiple Humilis.|
|Umbran Frog||On the right side of the first area, behind Verse 3, there will be a lot of frogs, but the Umbran one will be sitting behind the waterfall.|
|Umbran Crow||On the right side of the ruined bridge, the crow will be sitting on a platform in the middle of the moving sands.|
