Bayonetta 2 Walkthrough
Neither Heaven Nor Hell Can Stop Her!
Bayonetta’s back and more powerful than ever.
In this climactic sequel to the critically acclaimed Bayonetta action game, players will be on the edge of their seats from start to finish. Brimming with jaw-dropping battles and gorgeous cut scenes, this game never lets up on the action. Fight on top of a jet as it soars through a downtown city. Duke it out against a giant angelic monster with a deadly whip-like arm on top of a speeding train. And take to the skies in a fight against a demonic dragon while ascending to the top of a skyscraper.
Wield wild new weapons and execute deadly new moves—like the powerful Umbran Climax—to take out angels and demons in this breathtaking action game. You can even team up with friends in 2-player online* co-op fights.
Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch who wields sweet weapons like pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows. But it’s not just about brawn—it’s also about style. Bayonetta is deadly but sleek, with moves like Witch Time that slows down time itself, and the all-new Umbran Climax—a special magic attack that summons Infernal Demons to devastate enemies. Bayonetta 2 also features an all-new online 2-player cooperative mode where players bet halos on their performance and work together to amplify their sass, cause destruction, and score some riches.
*Broadband Internet access required for online play.
Key Game Features:
- Initiate the new Umbran Climax technique to temporarily summon demons and boost Bayonetta’s attack range whenever you fill her magic gauge.
- Fight with new over-the-top weapons that open new possibilities to the way you battle, including the Kafka, a bow that shoots poisonous arrows; the Rakshasa, a pair of beautiful katana blades; and a giant rifle-inspired scythe known as the Chernobog.
- Team up with a friend in Tag Climax, a two-player online co-op mode.
- In online quick matches, you can wager halos, the in-game currency that you earn by defeating enemies. You receive a large sum back if you can prove you’re a better fighter than your partner. Halos can then be traded in a story mode shop to unlock new techniques, buy accessories, and pick up alternate weapon variations.
- Every chapter ends with a medal ranking: Stone, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Pure Platinum. The more skilled you are, the higher your ranking.
- This game is approachable for players of all levels, with settings of three difficulty levels. Through Touch Play, you can play with the GamePad’s stylus and touchscreen, regardless of which difficulty you choose.
Welcome to the Bayonetta 2 walkthrough! This is going to be epic! 😀
Daedron will be your progamer guide showing you around the game’s chapters on the hardest difficulty level, 3rd Climax, with a Platinum Rank.
In the game intro Bayonetta’s longtime friend and fellow Umbra Witch, Jeanne, appears to assist Bayonetta in performing combination attacks and in doling out intense punishment against enemies.
You cannot die here and nothing you do actually affects anything. Just go to town on the poor enemies.
Note: Each chapter will be completed with all or most of the hidden verses locations found.
Hint: Remember, you can also take all the action off the big screen and enjoy off-TV play using the Wii U GamePad.
In the prologue you move from fight to fight learning new things along the way…
– Take your time on the plane, the scene transitions automatically after a certain amount of time has passed. Even if you kill enemies quickly, new ones will keep spawning in infinitely.
– When you’re on the train fighting the Belief and he’s clinging on, it might be better to not move across its arm to its head to perform the punish QTE. It takes time and the combo points you get from doing it aren’t worth it. For ranked play, it’s better to keep wailing on the arm.
– Gomorrah is a pretty easy fight, most of its attacks are highly telegraphed so reasonably easy to dodge. To keep your combo going from beginning to end, make sure to shoot as he’s climbing up the tower.
Control Tips: Choose between Classic and Touch play styles…
– The Classic Controls represent the technical control scheme unique to Bayonetta, an acclaimed control scheme that fans of the previous game love and all action game fans will enjoy.
– The Touch Controls, on the other hand, offer a more convenient play style for those unfamiliar with action games or simply looking for a new spin on action. Players can use the Wii U GamePad touch screen controls to easily manipulate Bayonetta as she moves, attacks and evades enemies.
In this first chapter you immediately get access to the Panther Within, allowing swift movement across the stage.
You also get access to shop in this chapter, allowing you to buy skills, weapons, items and accessories. It’s recommended that you buy Bat Within ASAP, it basically adds free frames where you’re allowed to dodge right as you get hit.
Hidden Verses Locations: This chapter has a lot of hidden verses, 7 in total. This means about half of them are missable. Though 4 of those are Muspelheim and relatively easy to spot with one exception.
• Verse 1: Muspelheim. After crossing the big plaza and standing in front of the temple submerged in water, look to your left. The portal is in front of a gate.
• Verse 3: After the underwater fight in verse 2, continue on and stay on the left hand-side. Jump over the rubble to find a Muspelheim.
• Verse 4: After coming up out of the water, instead of continuing towards the Gates of Hell portal. Go in the other direction towards the dead end.
• Verse 5: At the plaza, there’s a Muspelheim on the left hand-side, underwater under the archway. Not sure if it’s there from the beginning or if you have to beat Verse 6 first. I missed this one in the video guide above.
• Verse 8: After the Valiance fight, stay on the 2nd floor of the temple and move to the right hand-side for a Muspelheim.
• Verse 11: After Verse 10 is completed, backtrack to the main area of the temple where you freed Loki.
• Verse 12: At the area with the small bridge. Jump in the water and go towards the big open area.
In the second chapter you get introduced to some annoying enemies that put enrage status on the enemies, this pretty much makes them as difficult as normal Infinite Climax enemies (with the damage to boot!) so unless you’re feeling gutsy, take them out ASAP.
You also obtain Kafka in this chapter. This weapon is overall pretty meh imo. I don’t know any situation where Love is Blue isn’t better, for both damage output and combo points. I guess if you love bows, use it. Otherwise keep using Love is Blue.
Hidden Verses Locations: Compared to the first chapter, this one’s pretty short and doesn’t have as many missable verses, but the ones that are missable are very easily overlooked.
• Verse 1: Muspelheim in an alley on the right of the starting area.
• Verse 3: After Loki triggers the tidal wave, evade then go back to the plaza.
• Verse 4: After the talk between Loki and Bayonetta, open the door, go inside a little bit(not necessary?) then go back outside.
• Verse 6: Near where the LP for Kafka spawns, open the 2 chests.
• Verse 9: Muspelheim, in plain sight.
Chapter 3 includes the Glamor boss fight.
– The first and second phase are timed. You can pretty much hold down shoot, dodge the debris and Glamor’s tail as it goes through the water. Prepare to dodge when it faces you, as it’s about to do a charge attack.
– The third phase is an aerial battle. You fight against three Glamor’s total. The first two have low HP and fall quickly. After defeating them, you battle the “main” Glamor.
– It has some new attacks but nothing too terribly hard to see coming.
– When it enrages, it will swipe you 4 times, whenever you dodge Witch time will be triggered for a very very small amount of time. But dodge the 4th swipe and you enter Witch Time for a long time.
– It’s recommended you use Love is Blue on your hands almost exclusively on this fight to keep your combo going. Having Raksasha equipped on hands makes it miss more often than not unless you go for PKP wicked weaves.
Note: There are no Verses hidden in boss chapters.
