There is a nice achievement section on the main menu that tracks everything you need to do with counters to let you know how close you are.
It's only the rain - 10 You Killed 10 enemies by pushing them into the Hurricane ride
The Hurricane is the tilt a whirl carnival ride you will come to in mission one. Simply use your B Hightime air attack of the Rebllion to launch enemies in the air. If the low part of the Hurricane hits them they will die. There are enough enemies to get this in one try or you can reload checkpoint to finish it up.
10 - You purchased your first upgrade
During the first mission you will be introduced to Divinity Statues. You use the points you acquire during missions to upgrade your weapons and abilities. Simply purchase one upgrade for this achievement. You can also upgrade from the main menu.
Come on Puppy. Let's go! - 20 You have defeated the Hunter
Story Related. The Hunter is the end boss of the first level, Found. You damage the Hunter via hitting it in the face. Watch for the wild swinging, but pretty easy to dodge. The Hunter will also jump away from you and try to grab you with his grappling hook, simply dodge away and hit him with your guns. The other attack to look out for is when the Hunter will darken the area and throw his blade out at you. During this attack you need to simply keep dodging until it is over.
It's got to stay in the family - 10 You have acquired Arbiter
Story Related. You acquire the Arbiter in the second mission.

Where does the time go? - 10 You completed a level in 2 minutes or less
Once you have Angel Boost in mission 3 you can restart mission 3 on Human difficulty. Kill the first wave of enemies and then just Angel Boost to the end. Easy.
Looks like it's your lucky day - 10 You completed a level without taking any damage
Playing mission 3 a second time on Human, after already getting Angel Boost, is the way to go. There is only the opening area enemies and then you can Angel Boost to finish the level very quickly. An alternate level to get this on is mission 15, there are no enemies, but you need to get to the end without missing a single jump.
Flock off, feather-face! - 20 You have defeated the Tyrant
Story Related. Tyrant is a boss in mission 4. You need to dodge his charge and then quickly use Demon Pull to drag him to you and beat on him while he is down. Repeat several times.
DmC: Devil May Cry - Mission 5 - All Collectible Locations (All Lost Souls, Keys, Secret Doors) - YouTube
A man with guts and honor - 10 You reached the end of the descent on Mission 6 having killed all of the enemies
Play on Human difficulty. This is timed, but you have plenty of time. There are only a hand full of enemies in this level. Just use Demon Pull to bring them in and hit them hard. I personally messed a TON of jumps lol and still got this no problem.
This baby sure can pack a punch - 20 You have acquired Eryx
Story Related. Eryx is acquired at the end of mission six.

Now my coat's all charred - 10 You navigated the Sky Bridge without hitting the lasers
In mission sixteen you will come to a bridge with red and white lasers. You need to get to the end without hitting the lasers. You can restart checkpoint if you need to. There is a battle in the middle, you can get hit by enemies, but not the lasers. Time your jumps to be in sync with when they are off. The third jump is the only hard one, you need to jump, fall a bit, and then Angel Boost.

Every hero has a weakness - 10 You completed Furnace of Souls without taking damage from the furnace
This is in mission seventeen. This is probably one of the hardest achieves. The level is VERY long and whether you have been hit or not can be hard to tell. Keep careful watch on your health meter. Make sure to reload Checkpoints, don't die from the fire and continue.

THE SECOND he calls in a spawn, activate Devil Trigger and then stab him with a standard Y attack.

You need to find keys to unlock the secret doors. There are 10 Copper, 6 Argent, 4 Gold, and 1 Ivory Key/Door. Note that although there are a equal number of keys and doors in a level, you do not necessarily find matching keys. There is a bit of getting keys from other levels and coming back and forth.
Keeps getting better and better - 40 You have been awarded a 100% completion rank on all missions
This is for getting all the Keys, Doors, and Souls. Check out PowerPyx and Savgcom's videos under each mission for full collectible guides.

It's showtime. Come on! - 20 You earned 1,500 Style Bonuses
You get Style points for doing combos during battles. I was just shy of it at the end of my first playthrough.
Impressive - 10 You have slayed 100 Demons
See Looks like we have a winner
Bring it on! - 20 You have slayed 1,000 Demons
See Looks like we have a winner
Looks like we have a winner - 30 You have slayed 5,000 Demons
I was at 1,000 at then end of my first playthrough so this will unlock naturally as you work towards finishing all the difficulties.
For Tony Redgrave - 10 You killed 50 enemies using nothing but firearms
Use Ebony and Ivory to take out the flying Bathos and Pathos enemies. If they have a shield use Demon Pull to remove it, then use your guns to take them down.
In the name of my father - 10 You killed 100 enemies using nothing but Demon weapons
The Arbiter (Mission 2), Eryx (Mission 6) count as Demon weapons.
You'll never have her fire - 10 You killed 100 enemies using nothing but Angel weapons
Osiris (Mission 2), Aquila (Mission 10) count as Angel weapons.
Jackpot! - 80 Completed all missions on the Nephilim difficultly with a SSS rank
I strongly suggest a playthrough on Human to get all the collectibles out of the way. By doing this you automatically get a SSS on collections, but it also helps you cut down your time A LOT by not having to stray off course to get souls and keys.
Too easy! - 40 Completed all missions on the Son of Sparda difficulty
Beat the game on any difficulty to unlock Son of Sparda difficulty.
Devils never cry - 100 Completed all missions on the Dante Must Die difficulty
Beat the game on Son of Sparda difficulty to unlock Dante Must Die.
This is what I live for! - 10 Completed all missions on Heaven Or Hell difficulty
Beat the game on Dante Must Die difficulty to unlock Heaven or Hell. In Heaven or Hell both you an enemies die in 1 hit.
And welcome to Hell! - 100 Completed all missions on Hell and Hell difficulty
Beat the game on Heaven or Hell difficulty to unlock Hell and Hell. In Hell and Hell, enemies are normal health, but Dante still dies in 1 hit.
Sensational! - 10 You gained a SSS Style Rank during combat
You need to vary up your attacks and do major damage very fast. PowerPyx had found a good location for this in mission 11.
Stylish! - 10 Completed a mission with a SSS rank
1. Acquiring all the collectables in a level gains you an immediate bonus of SSS in that category. This is a major help. The other two factors are points and time. Try to do as much damage as fast as you can in the least amount of time. I got this on the final level which is just a boss battle.

On Misson 3 don't make the mistake of turning back after defeating those enemies without getting hit or it triggers more. Or fall down the gap while trying to make the jump across to Kat.

A few questions:
Is Nephilim pretty much the new Devil Hunter mode? If you just have to SSS those, it can't be too bad right?
Are there still holy waters? And bought with orbs?
Is there an infinite respawn part in heaven and hell mode like in DMC 4? 5k is a lot.

Nephilim difficulty is one of three starting options. They can be switched at any time. So Nephilim is the hardest of the base 3, but not that hard.
If you are talking about health items there are 2. One gives you part of your health back, the other gives you all of it. They are bought with Red Orbs and found in missions and you can carry 10 of each. There are also Gold Orbs that you can carry 3 that allow you to die and continue on, not from checkpoint.
There are a LOT of checkpoints. So you can use a Gold Orb if you have one, or just start back at the last checkpoint. Each item and death counts against your total score.

Just got to 1000. Hell and Hell is a joke compared to Dante Must Die and the SSS achievement (which weren't terrible either). Super Dante is totally broken!
I actually only had 4000 kills when I was done tho...
TIP FOR 5000 KILLS:
So I went back to the Raptor News level on Heaven or Hell. In the parts where bob warps you away, enemies infinitely respawn until a certain time has elapsed at about one enemy per second! Just mash shoot! I got about 80 kills in the first segment and 60 in the second. Even better, if you pause and do "restart from checkpoint" YOUR KILLS CARRY OVER. So just mash shoot until the segment is getting near its end, restart from checkpoint, rinse and repeat. I got a 1000 kills in 15 minutes. This has got to be the best way to do this!

How do I get the key on mission 9? I watched the video but I'm not getting high enough. I use the fist move(forget what it is called)and then double jump and then dash forward.
