Dealspwn.com deploys a selection of tips and tricks for DmC: Devil May Cry.

Note that you should only deploy it when you see the telltale red symbol while holding the right trigger, else you'll actually pull the Tyrant around to face you (whoops). The Kablooey stake gun is also well worth busting out for a Tyrant fight, since four simultaneously-detonated blasts can stun them while enraged. Fire the four shots into its back and then follow-up with some demon weapon attacks - save the sweet detonation for when he comes round for another charge."
