Marvel’s Spider Man 2: 10 Things The Game Doesn’t Tell You

Marvel Spider-Man 2 is swinging its way into your living room or wherever you play video games, might be in your bedroom. I mean it’s more the swinging part that’s relevant. And while the game’s pretty decent at explaining stuff sometimes it relies on your intuition heavily. Now I don’t have a spider sense so sometimes I just need it spelled out. Hello everyone and today in this blog I will share, Marvel’s Spider Man 2: 10 things the game doesn’t tell you.

10. Turn off swing assist for a more challenging Spider-Man 2 experience

If you’re looking for a more challenging and authentic Spider-Man 2 experience, try turning off swing assist. By default, swing steering assistance is set to 10, but you can crank it down to zero in the options menu. This will make the game play a lot more like the original Spider-Man 2 game from 2004.

With swing assist turned off, you’ll need to be more careful in controlling your swings and building up momentum. It will feel slower at first, but with enough practice, you’ll be able to rocket through New York like a pro.

Of course, this is not the recommended way to play the game for most people. But if you’re a real Spider-Man 2 fanatic, or if you’re just looking for a challenge, it’s worth trying out.

9. Spider-Man 2 Skills to Unlock Pronto

While all the skills in Spider-Man 2 are pretty good, there are a few that are higher priorities to unlock first, especially if you’re playing on Normal difficulty.

Web Throw (Shared skill tree): This classic skill allows you to swing around a webbed-up enemy and damage everybody nearby. It’s also very useful for automatically sticking enemies to surfaces.

Combo Resupply (Shared skill tree): This skill adds a chance for a free gadget shot at the end of a four-hit combo. While it may sound useless if you’re not using gadgets, you really should be, as they’re easy to quick throw and can trivialize certain enemy types. There’s no spoilers here, but getting free recharges of one specific gadget is a huge lifesaver near the end of the game.

Wall Thrash (Shared skill tree): This skill allows you to thrash enemies against a wall, dissolving their health. It’s the most effective way to take out boss-like enemies, which the game starts throwing at you regularly towards the end.

Prioritize unlocking these three skills first, and you’ll be well on your way to mastering Spider-Man 2’s combat.

8. Use L3 to perch on ledges

You can perch on ledges by pressing L3 when you’re near the side of a building. This is a useful feature that makes it easier to perform perch takedowns, walk along ledges without falling off, and explore certain locations.

However, the game doesn’t tell you about this feature anywhere. There’s no button prompt or tooltip, so it’s easy to miss.

But don’t miss it! Perching on ledges is a very useful feature, so be sure to use it.

7. You can web zip to any surface

Spider-Man 2 lets you web zip to any surface, not just the preset web zip points. To do this, simply aim with L2 and web zip with R2. You can also hang from a web anytime you want by pressing L2 after zipping onto a ceiling.

These features are never explicitly mentioned in the game, so it’s easy to miss them. But they can be very useful, especially in combat.

Here are a few tips for using these features effectively:

  • Web zip to enemies to quickly take them down.
  • Web zip to high ground to gain an advantage.
  • Web zip to walls to create obstacles for enemies.
  • Hang from webs to scout out areas or ambush enemies.

Get creative and experiment with these features. You’ll be surprised at how useful they can be.

6. Don’t skip out on side activities

The side activities in Spider-Man 2 are much better than they were in the first game. They’re faster, more fun, and offer better rewards. And if you skip them, you’ll likely be underpowered for the final third of the game, which is very difficult.

So don’t be afraid to take a break from the main story and do some side activities. You’ll get better suit upgrades, skills, and gadget updates, which will make the game much easier.

Here are a few of the best side activities to focus on:

  • FNSM App Requests: These are quick and easy missions that you can pick up from the FNSM app on your phone. They’re a great way to get some extra XP and resources.
  • Prowler Stashes: These are hidden caches that contain loot and collectibles. They’re a bit more challenging to find, but they’re definitely worth the effort.
  • Cultural Museum Missions: These missions take you to different museums around New York City, where you’ll need to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. They’re a great way to learn about the city’s history and culture.
  • Brooklyn Visions Activities: These activities are designed to help you learn about the different cultures and communities of Brooklyn. They’re a great way to immerse yourself in the city and earn some extra rewards.
  • Marko’s Memories: These missions take you back to Marko’s past, where you’ll need to help him remember his lost memories. They’re a great way to learn more about Marko’s character and his motivations.

5. Upgrade your focus first

Upgrading your focus is the most important thing you can do. Having three focus bars will allow you to perform takedowns on tough enemies and heal yourself at the same time. It’s essential for boss fights, which can be very difficult.

Here are a few tips for upgrading your focus:

  • Prioritize focus upgrades in the suit tech menu. Focus upgrades are the most expensive, but they’re worth the investment.
  • Complete side activities to earn resources. Side activities are a great way to earn the resources you need to upgrade your suit.
  • Use your focus wisely. Don’t waste your focus on weak enemies. Instead, save it for tough enemies and boss fights.

4. Unlock the Mega Venom Blast skill to get gold in Mysteriums

The Mega Venom Blast skill in the Miles Morales skill tree is incredibly powerful for Mysteriums. It allows you to fill up your focus meter with a single use, which can be used to perform takedowns and heal yourself.

To get gold in Mysteriums, simply use Mega Venom Blast to fill up your focus meter, and then use focus attacks, takedowns, and gadgets to take out enemies. Rinse and repeat, and you should be able to complete most Mysteriums well below par.

Here are a few additional tips for getting gold in Mysteriums:

  • Spam skills and gadgets as much as you can.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and avoid damage.
  • If you’re struggling, don’t be afraid to turn down the difficulty.

3. Complete the Prowler stashes

Completing all of the Prowler stashes in Spider-Man 2 will unlock a new tech for Miles Morales that gives him extra damage when he attacks from being invisible. This is a very powerful tech, as you can turn invisible at any time, even in combat.

This tech can be used to deal some serious damage to enemies, and it’s especially effective against bosses. It’s not so powerful that it will change how you play the game completely, but it’s a great way to get some extra damage out of Miles’ invisibility power.

Here are a few tips for using this tech effectively:

  • Turn invisible before attacking an enemy for a sneak attack bonus.
  • Use it to get behind an enemy and attack them from behind.
  • Use it to escape from a difficult situation.
  • Use it to set up takedowns.

Get creative and experiment with this tech. You’ll be surprised at how useful it can be.

2. Don't neglect your web shooters

In Spider-Man 2, your web shooters are more powerful than ever. They’re now free to use all the time, and they can be used to web enemies to walls, the ground, or even the air.

Webbing enemies is a great way to thin out the herd and control the battlefield. It’s also very effective against bosses, as it can stun them and prevent them from attacking.

Here are a few tips for using your web shooters effectively:

  • Web enemies to walls or the ground to incapacitate them.
  • Web enemies to the air to throw them back or set them up for a takedown.
  • Use web combos to quickly and easily defeat multiple enemies.
  • Upgrade your web shooters to make them even more powerful.

Don’t neglect your web shooters. They’re one of your most powerful weapons.

1. Be aware of mission 21

You start losing access to powers and characters at mission 21. This is temporary, and you will get everything back after about five missions. However, it’s important to be aware of this so that you don’t get caught off guard.

If you’re in the middle of something or just want to keep playing as a certain character, keep in mind that you’ll lose access to them at mission 21. The game doesn’t give you a point-of-no-return message here, so it’s important to be aware of this yourself.

It’s possible that the turn of events may take players by surprise, but there are cues that can tell you that it’s coming. Just keep your eyes peeled at mission 21.
