When fighting Kraven on the second part, there is an unlimited amount of lizards which enter through the red smoke. Jump there and wait for the lizards to come out. When standing there, Kraven is unable to jump up and cannot harm you. Because you have the Symbiotic Suit, you will have a purple meter which can give you a rage mode. Fill it and trigger the rage mode. You can then jump back down to Kraven and press the RB + Y to jump up and slam down on him. Repeat this until you can begin the button sequence. Note: Kraven might be able to jump on the ledge near the entrance once or twice. If he does, jump down. When he follows, jump back up and continue. Also, if the lizards stop appearing, jump down and kill some of them then go to the red smoke and they will come out again.
Defeating Michael Morbius
When you are trying to open the boarded up windows, if you are far away from him he will do a long jump towards you. Then it takes him a few seconds to recover to attack. Before he jumps, do not stand in the yellow circles. Instead, stand next to the wall opposite the windows. He will now jump to there, recover, etc. While he is recovering, pull down the boards. When he jumps into the light, attack him. Keep doing this until his and his wife's life runs out to complete the level.
He will fly around, etc. When he lines up, use the Spider-Wall to damage him and he will land. Attack him and repeat this strategy.
Defeating The Lizard
You must first defeat The Hunter. Use the Black suit and it will be easy. You will then catch up with the new and improved Lizard. Stand by a generator and wait until he is about to strike, then dodge. He will hit the generator and shock himself. This will also shock you. Repeat this until you must counter-attack him and ride his back. Use the Left Analog-stick to balance and he will run into one. Then, the last one shuts off and you must turn it back on. Go over to the switch, and if done quickly enough, press Y to turn it back on. Ride his back one more time to defeat him.
She has a shield, so do not worry about her. Stand next to a satellite and wait until your Spidey senses activate. Press LT and dodge, causing her to damage her crystal. Repeat this until she runs away.
In your final encounter with Shriek, she temporarily takes away
your Black suit, and figures from your imagination attack you
(your loved ones). You can kill them with one hit, but it is pointless.
Wait until the Black suit recharges, then switch over, revealing
your true enemies. Attack Shriek until she changes you back to
the old Spider-Man. Repeat the previous steps and she will collapse.
Defeating Michael Morbius and Shriek
Wait until Michael is about to rush you, then open
the window. He will be temporarily weakened. Beat him up. Shriek
will heal him, losing some of her health. Repeat this until he
dies, and she flees the scene.
In your first encounter with Sandman, do not try to
attack him, just stay close to him. Counter-attack him several
times on different levels to finally battle him. Unfortunately,
you must use the Black suit to damage him. Just hit him around
until you are prompted to give him a bath. Keep doing this cycle
until you defeat him.
Sandman will create a mini-tornado and you cannot hit him. Use
your Spidey senses to dodge the flying bars and wait until he
throws a tank at you. Press B when prompted and send it
back at him, allowing you to beat him up. Do not get over-confident,
as he will start up his tornado and do some damage. Repeat this
until he dies.
The second battle with Sandman is very easy. Just dodge when your
Spidey senses alert you and run to the yellow circles when they
appear. Complete the prompts to throw TNT barrels into Sandman.
Eventually Harry will kill him, ending Sandman.
Before this battle, go to the upgrade menu and make
sure you have the melee attack volley. Then, fight. Depending
on your health level, you may or may not want to use the power
up. At the moment, you can easily jump over Venom, confuse him,
and chip away at his health. Keep doing this until his black suit
begins to "glow". Now when you jump over him he will
run away. This is a good opportunity to use your new attack and
chip at him, occasionally giving some hits. Keep hitting him until
his "glow" gets bigger and eventually Harry will tell
you to knock Venom into the air. He'll fall back to the ground
same as before, easily confused. Repeat this cycle until his health is really low and you can finish him off.
To defeat Venom in the first battle, use upgraded vaulting to
Vault Web or Jab. Do this repeatedly until he is defeated.
Use the following trick for an easy victory the first and second
time you face Venom. When you meet Venom for the first time at
the construction site, you must beat him down in five minutes
or else Mary Jane will die. A easy way to do this is to defeat
Venom in version one. It should be very easy). Version two is
slightly harder, but all you have to do is watch his five punch
combo. The last punch is his super punch. After he is done with
his combo, beat him up. Repeat this until Venom turns into version
three. You cannot do much once he is in his full power. Watch
carefully and you should see a flashing symbol. Follow what the
game instructs you to do and you should win. This works on both
In the final battle with Venom, it is just the two of you. Repeat
the previously listed steps to defeat him. When his "glow"
is very high, run over to the metal bars and follow the prompt.
This will slowly remove the suit off him. Just keep fighting him
until he dies.
The final button combination to defeat Venom is Up, A,
Left, A(2), B, LB, X, LB,
Use Upgraded Vaulting skills and use it against him until he is
The easy way to defeat the second Venom is to jump around and
fire adrenaline web. When his glow is high, go to the prompt circle
and press the selected button.
Defeating technology person
Dodge him and wait until he shoots missiles at you.
Press B to send them back. This will cause him to land
and you can hit him. Keep doing this until he dies.
To easily defeat enemies jump then keep tapping both
This tip is helpful when doing a combat tour or fighting multiple
enemies. Doing a ROFL Copter (Y(2), X(4)) is very
helpful and attacks multiple enemies that are near at the same
time. Also, when playing in the Black suit, pressing LB
+ A while in rage will pick up all the nearby enemies and
hit them, doing a lot of damage.
Use the following trick to defeat Apocalypse Gang members, Arsenic
Candy girls, and Dr. Connor's Lizard Creations in one hit. Jump
up in the air and pull the enemy up to you. Next, very quickly
press B when they are close then Y repeatedly. You
will pile drive their head in to the ground. This move will only
defeat the lower level gang members in one hit. In order to do
this on the ones with weapons, you must be Symbiotic Spider-Man
in Rage mode. They will lose 75% of their health. For the order
on the Dragon Tail members, this move will take down their health
to about 90%.
Easy gang eradication
Immediately after you defeat The Sandman for the first
time in the "Mary Jane's Favorite Band" mission and
before you "Meet Mary Jane At The Restaurant", you cannot
take off the Black suit. During this time period, which does not
end until you start the next mission, you can wear the Black suit
without any damage being done to you. Use this time to clear the
city of all gang activity. This may take awhile, but it is easier
with the Black suit.
Rival gang reward
Choose any of the gang patrol missions (Apocalypse,
Dragon Tails, H-Bombers, Waste Tribe) and defeat all of their
marked territories that match their logos to earn 3 experience
While swinging through the city you might hear a chime.
This indicates that you are close to a token.
As Black costume Spider-Man, you can find the meteorite
fragments (small rock-like objects surrounded by a purple/pink
glow) by listening for a pulsating sound. The louder it gets,
the closer you are.
Web swinging upgrades
You can earn upgrades for this ability by using it
When you find a ambulance, it should be on top of the
truck. Otherwise, try to complete one of the story mode missions.
If you need to get air very fast swing, on a traffic
light or light pole by jumping towards it while holding B.
While on it press LT repeatedly until Spider-Man swings
very fast then press A to jump. You will get big air. This
is useful for the Mary Jane thrill rides.
Back to morning
When it is dark, do the City Alert one time.
When you go to a crime area controlled by the police,
you will be assigned a task involving a random gang. On completion
of the tasks the effectiveness of the police will be increased
(as seen by the rings around the police symbol on the map). The
more rings you have, the harder it is for gangs to take control
of police-controlled areas and the more likely it is for the police
to take over gang controlled areas.
After you have completed the Final Showdown mission,
swing somewhere far then go on the map and look for the Financial
District. Go there. Go to the left until you see a glass building.
That is the construction site after it was broken Note: You will
see the little square that you was fighting in with Venom and
Dr. Michael Morbius reference
Near Columbia, there is a building with a dome and pillars named "VLAD TEPES HALL" (inscribed across the front). This is not a real building and does not exist anywhere in Manhattan in the real world, and was likely included in the game as a reference to Dr. Michael Morbius (a.k.a. Morbius the Living Vampire). Vlad Tepes is the historical figure that Count Dracula was based on, and thus inspired many of the traits with which we associate vampires today.
Easy Hitchhiker achievement
Do not ride a regular car to try and get the Hitchhiker
achievement because the traffic is very bad and the cars barely
move. Instead, ride a criminal's car for a distance of five miles.
It is easier and faster. Remember to knock out the people that
Easy Web Swinger achievement
Go to the Daily Bugle. Use the Web Sling Shot area
at the pointed part of the building. Immediately before you land,
quickly use the Web Zip or just keep pressing RT to get
To easily get this achievement, go to the subways and swing as
fast as you can into an oncoming train.
Play as pedestrian Peter Parker
When there is a mission available for the Daily Bugle,
go to it. Go inside the building and talk to Robbie. When he assigns
you a project, leave the building and go back in. You will notice
the nav point is now showing up from inside the building. Wait
up to seven minutes inside the building. You will get a mission
failed (you wasted to much time, Eddie has taken your job). You
have two options, "Retry" or "Do something else".
Select "Do something else" and you should then appear
on top of the Daily Bugle as Peter Parker. Walk over to the race
on top of the building but do not start it. When you get the "Press
A to start mission" message you will now have the ability
to use A, which is punch. Walk over to the edge of the
building and hold Forward and do uppercuts until Peter
falls off the building. You are now Peter Parker in the city.
All you can do is run around and punch or web. To exit this mode,
die. When you respawn on top of the building go in the Daily Bugle
and come back out. Note: This was only tested as Dark Spider-Man
but should work for both forms.
Throughout the game if you watch the traffic enough,
other cars besides those of criminals will hit one another and
dent up the rear of the car.
Cars can be moved by finding a cardboard box in a warehouse
or any other location. Push it outside into the street. You can
then push the box into the car and the car will move just as if
you were pushing the box.
Reach the height limit
The maximum height limit is about 850 feet in the air.
To do to get up there, find a Dragon Tail Member and jump web
yank. Press A when they are at your feet and you should
jump up. Then, web yank them again and repeat. This only works
with Dragon Tail Members because they will block your attack when
you jump off them in the air. Even if they lose health at first,
just keep doing it. Once they recover from the first jump they
will start blocking the attacks.
Completing final Dr. Connors misison
On the last Dr. Connors part 2 mission, hold Slow
Motion while putting in the serum into the canister. As soon
as you come into play Web-Zip to the left onto the platform. Note:
Do not jump, Web-Zip only. Stay there and do not move. No Lizards
will appear. Just wait for the time to run out.
