Breaking And Entering: View development team
Next to some of the computers are pictures of some of the development team.
Chase Through The Sewer: Secret room
You will reach a part where you need to turn off some running water through a water tunnel. When you get to the other end of the tunnel, there will be three thugs. After you take out the thugs, go to the ceiling. You will see a door. Enter it and flick the switch. Then, go back through the tunnel that led to the room. Instead of jumping across the water-filled cage on the floor directly under the tunnel entrance, go into it. You will see an open door which leads to a secret room.
Chemical Chaos: Robots guards stop appearing
After setting off the alarm many times (approximately twenty) and hiding in dark places to not get caught, the robot guards will stop coming out to see what is happening.
Coup d' Etat: Falling panda
Pick up Mary Jane and stand by the spider. When the big panda balloon gets near a building, put down Mary Jane on the spider. In the intermission sequence, the big panda balloon will hit a building, fall, and a lot of people will scream.
Escape From OsCorp: Easy "Perfect" rank
Go directly to the control room on your left, where the shut off to the sentry guns is located. You can break the window and come out behind the laser wall. From there, you can exit as normal. This will save you the trouble of visiting the other control room, and subjecting yourself to extended fire from the super soldier robots.
OsCorp's Gambit: Easy passcode download
When you are downloading the passcode, just wrap the guards in webbing and you can download it. After they break out of the spider silk they will not raise the alarm if you are on the ceiling or walls.
OsCorp's Gambit: Chip combination
After you download all the things off the computers and get to the door with an electrical force field, a screen appears. There are five colored chips and you have to find the combination. It is as follows: fifth chip, fourth chip, second chip, third chip, and the first chip. You should now be able to get to the next level.
OsCorp's Gambit: Easy completion
To complete the level easily while playing under Hero or Superhero difficulty setting, first complete the training with the balloon. Then, when you start to fight, immediately (without killing any machines), swing off to the right and look for a yellow building with a triangular rooftop with a circular hole. When you find it, swing into the hole in the rooftop. There should be a health located there, if needed. Stand in the hole and wait for the machine to catch up with you. Then, shoot webbing at it. Keep doing this until all the machines are destroyed. If you need more health or webbing, across from the yellow building should be a black building with three platforms. Swing down to the lowest platform until you see a health. On the other corner of that building is a webbing.
OsCorp's Gambit: Up close and personal
When you first start the level, do a 180 then web sling to the end of the level. Then, turn right. Web sling that way until you reach a building with two lower buildings attached. When you land on that building (from the way you came from), fall off the building and crawl on the side.
OsCorp's Ultimate Weapon: Destroying the generators
When fighting the Super Mech in this level, you do not have to run around and just dive in for the shield generators. As soon as you start the level, swing off to the left. There should be a big pillar that you can hide behind and go under to the other side. However, do not go to the other side or the Super Mech's laser will hit you. Instead, climb up that wall to reach a walkway. Get on it and when you are up here you do not have to worry about Light Mechs or the lightning bolts. They cannot go this high. Nothing can hit you unless you are too close to the edge. Target the shield generators then jump or double jump and do a web shot to destroy them in two or three shots.
To destroy the four generators in the Super Mech's line of fire without getting hurt, web-zip over to the area where he fires. When he starts to fire, zip up onto the ceiling and crawl to the area with many lights. The Super Mech will to fire, but cannot hit you. His line of fire hits the generators as you move across the ceiling. Continue to move back and forth on the ceiling and you will have destroyed four of the generators without being touched. Wait until his beam goes toward the ground before you try to get back towards him so he will stop firing.
The Razor's Edge: UFO
Look on top of one of the buildings in the area where you start. You will see glowing colors, and if you get closer you will that it is a UFO. If you get too close, it will fly away.
The Razor's Edge: Using Razor Bats
When playing as the Green Goblin you can kill Razor Bats easily. Make five of your Razor Bats and when they get close to the other ones, blow yours up. Most of the others will also blow up. Keep doing this until the last one is gone.
The Razor's Edge: Completing as Green Goblin
As Green Goblin, you should find this level to be much easier than playing as Spider-Man. Before the other Green Goblin sets off his first wave of Razor Bats, run away from him as far as possible. Set the glider so that it is facing all the Razor Bats. Then, go in with turbo on the glider while shooting the guns a blazing. If desired, enable the "Unlimited Green Goblin glider power" code. Then, release turbo and the engine and press [Left] or [Right]. This will make you slide 180 degrees in the direction you selected. Then, use whatever weapons desired to take out the rest. Repeat to get rid of all the Razor Bats. Note: Razor Bats do not work against other Razor Bats.
The Razor's Edge: Avoiding Razor Bats
The Green Goblin will send Razor Bats after you. However, for a few seconds before they attack, they remain clumped together. When playing as Spider-Man, shoot your Impact Webbing at the clump. It will destroy all of them at once. Note: It helps if you use the larger impact.
Search For Justice: Secret sub-mission
During the first level, swing to the left slightly when you start. You should go over a building with a helipad. Then, go down to the next building that has a billboard. There will be two Skulls on the rooftop and a purse. After you defeat the two Skulls your character will notice the purse. Next, turn towards the billboard and go back over the roof with the helipad and start to go right to the next rooftop. There will be two Skulls and a woman. Beat up the Skulls and talk with the woman. She will say she lost her purse. Go back to the building with the purse and bring it back to her. This will give you points for the secret in this level.
Search For Justice: Missing purse
Go to the top of the building that is next to the building with the helicopter landing area. Look around and you will find a missing purse.
Search For Justice: Get sliced by a helicopter
Find a building with glowing green letters that say something similar to "Treytech". Close to it is a building with a green roof. It will have a metal tower on it. Stand on top of that tower. Soon a helicopter, will appear and hit you. You will fall off, but will not be damaged.
Search For Justice: Matrix-style jump
Find the tall building with a green roof, that is pyramid-like while playing as the Green Goblin (not the costume). Press [A] to jump onto the green part of the roof, then hold [Up] and he will do a sort of "Matrix" jump. Note: This does not work as Spider-Man, because he just crawls up the wall and does not run up it.
Search For Justice: Gold Spider Icon
When you start the level, the rock you are standing on has a Gold Spider Icon. To find it, start swinging, then turn around to head back to the starting point.
Search For Justice: Thug survives fall
Go to any building with a Skull Gang thug on it. Find a thug without a gun and walk toward him. He will start to back up and will eventually get to the edge, If you walk towards him a slightly more, he will fall off the building. Fall off with him and you will see that he landed on the sidewalk, but is still alive.
Showdown with Shocker: Get to Shocker faster
Use the Webdome when Shocker fires at you to avoid getting hurt.
Showdown with Shocker: Defeating Shocker
After you chase Shocker into the back room, it is fairly easy to defeat him. Do a double jump, then hold [Kick] to rain your strength down on him. Make sure you are at least on the same floor with him, and are a fairly close. Shocker should fall down, giving you time to repeat the move. After you get him on the ground once, it becomes very easy. Repeat the double jump to slamming kick move until he is defeated.
To defeat Shocker under the hard difficulty setting, after the tunnels go into the room and begin the fight. Shocker will run around and blast at you. If he comes down, get out Advanced Web Gloves and he will probably do a Tornado Sooner or later. When he is done, he will be dizzy. Go to him and keep punching him. If he jumps away and tries to blast you, quickly jump out of the way. You can also use the explosive cans to defeat him.
The Shocker is not that difficult to defeat. Press [Y] + [Left] two times then punch Shocker one to eight times to defeat him.
The Subway Station: Health Spider
After you save the civilian that was about to get crushed, some thugs will come to kill you. Jump over to the broken part of the pillar. Be careful, there are wires that can shock you. There is a health icon on top.
Uncle Ben's Killer Part 1: Secret room
When you are using Stealth, walk into the third room that leads into the next room with a truck in it. There should be a group of boxes clanged up together in the third room. Climb up on it. There should be a opening on the upper right hand corner of all those boxes, if you are looking at it in the front. This will take you to a secret room. Not much is here except a Health Spider, but it should give you some points.
Easier completion of Vulture's lair
When playing as the Green Goblin in Vulture's lair, after you pass the part of the burning log you will go up and find that your path is blocked by some walls, and you must find another way through. Instead of finding another way, simply blast the wall by pressing [L] + [X].T his will greatly reduce your time.
Avoiding Shocker's Ultra Shockwaves
When in the underground subway, Shocker will shoot Ultra Shockwaves every time you appear in one of the four tracks. To avoid this, head to the nearest opening to the side. If you cannot make it, use the Web Dome (not Advance -- save your webbing) and it will shield you from it. You can only use it about three or four times with the Web Dome. Enable the "Unlimited webbing" cheat to use the Web Dome defense through out the entire encounter.
Shocker's tunnels as Green Goblin
When going through the subway tunnel as the Green Goblin against Shocker, you do not have a Web Dome. Once the sequence begins, get behind any wall, but not in line with an attack. While running in turbo, run to a further away tunnel than the recent attack's tunnel. Quickly get on your glider, and go turbo simultaneously. Shocker will not be able to get to your tunnel in time by the time you are at the end.
Skull Gang Level 3 as Green Goblin
As Green Goblin, you cannot stick to walls. Using the hit and run technique when fighting the leader of the Skull Gang does not work well. Once in the big room, make sure you are high as possible. Then, let him freak out a little bit. While he is just lobbing around, throw a few Pumpkin Bombs at him. Then, jump down from the ceiling and land turbo around him. Doing so will injure him enough so that in a minute or so, you will win.
Defeating the Green Goblin while he is on the ground
Shoot webbing at him, which distracts him briefly. Then, hit him when he is distracted. This is easier if you use combos to kill him.
Use this trick to defeat the Green Goblin during a hand-to-hand fight. Enable the "Unlimited webbing" code. Start shooting webbing at him and afflict damage. You will not get damage. Watch out when he throws bombs or when he runs at you. When this happens, swing away or dodge. To make this easier, set on "Lock On" and start shooting. When fighting him hand-to-hand, never jump kick or jump punch him. He will grab you and slam you on the ground, afflicting more damage.
When facing the Green Goblin for the final time, grab Mary Jane (follow the compass) and take her down to the big glowing thing. Follow the compass to get there. It is now safe to fight the Green Goblin easily. Dodge him and target him. When the arrows around him turn green, fire webbing. Do this until he is on the ground. Then, jump down as well. Run up to him but watch out for the glider. Spray webbing at him to distract him, then go up to him and land punches. He should be half health. When he is about to throw a bomb, start swinging and if desired, get health on things similar to the pillars where you found Mary Jane. Drop back down and repeat until he is defeated.
Hit the Green Goblin in his glider
This trick will work on any level with the Green Goblin. Get close to him and while in the air start web attacking him. He will stop to rip it off. When he does this, maneuver yourself towards him and jump. If done correctly, you will be on the back of the glider and can punch him. If you stop punching him, the Green Goblin will throw you off the glider. Note: This is difficult to execute.
Fight Green Goblin on glider
When fighting the Green Goblin, if timed correctly, you can land on the glider. You can fight while on the glider, which is easier than swinging and fighting in mid air.
Throw two multi bombs with the Green Goblin
The best place to do this trick is in basic combat on the training menu. First, hold [Y] button while you are running then hold [L] and press [A]x2.
Unlimited boost as the Green Goblin
This trick requires a controller with a auto-fire feature and works best in an easy difficulty game. Start using the boost while on the glider ( [R] + [A] ) then set the auto-fire to [A]. The glider will still be boosting, but the heat gauge will not increase. To repeat, turn off auto-fire on [A] and do the previous steps again. In normal or higher difficulty games, the gauge will increase slower than usual and will eventually overheat.
Longer lasting ammunition as the Green Goblin
This trick requires a controller with a auto-fire feature and works best in an easy difficulty game. Set the auto-fire to [B] then press [B] while on the glider. The heat gauge will increase slower than usual, but it will still overheat if used too long.
Green Goblin controls
When playing as the Green Goblin, there is an icon of the Goblin's Glider under Goblin's face. The top meter, besides the Heath and Energy (Web Fluid) meters, is an Overheat meter. If you fire weapons too fast or turbo too much, this meter fills. When completely full, the glider becomes disabled for awhile. The second meter is a Harpoon meter. When on the glider and you fire Homing Harpoons too often, this meter drains. When drained, you are unable to use Homing Harpoons until it recharges. The last meter is a Bomb meter. There are Bombs (not Pumpkin Bombs) that come out of the glider. You can only fire five before having to recharge. The Web Fluid meter becomes an Energy meter. Every time you fire any Pumpkin Bomb or Razor Bat, this drains.
Goblin off Glider
[Web Attack]: Turbo Run
[Web Swing]: Activate Glider
[Kick]: Homing Harpoons
[Web Attack]: Glider Bomb (can hurt you if too close)
[Web Swing]: Thrust
[Jump]: De-activate Glider
[Web Swing]+ [Jump]: Turbo Glide
Both on and off Glider
[Action] + [Punch]: Throw Pumpkin Bomb
[Action] + [Kick]: Homing Pumpkin Bomb
[Action] + [Web Attack]: Cluster Pumpkin Bomb
[Zip Line]: Release Razor Bat(s)
[Action] + [Zip Line]: De-activate Razor Bat(s)
Press [L] + [B] to activate Web Gloves. This will inflict more damage on Scorpion and kill him faster. Use a series of punch attacks. Note: The gloves will disappear after awhile and will need to be re-activated.
You can swing up high until you are directly above him. Drop down and you can land on his back. Keep punching repeatedly until you have grounded him. You can now use your combos. Repeat this until he is defeated.
When in the "Air Duel With Vulture" level, swing until Vulture is diagonal to you. Note: Spider-Man must be at the top diagonally. When he flies to you, double jump. When you are over him, use web zip. You will be on his head. Just keep punching and the fight will be easy. Note: You can stay on his head for five to eight seconds, and you cannot be close to the tower. It only takes four or five hits to defeat him.
As the Green Goblin, when you have to knock down the Vulture to defeat him, there is a combo on the very top of the pointed building. In order to get it. Point the glider directly at the peak and press "Accelerate" + [Up] between fighting the Vulture. Fly in circles and shoot at him to knock him down, making sure you do not lower your altitude.
Swing enemies around
Use your Web Yank, then rotate the D-Pad as fast as possible in a big area. You can keep swinging until the enemy hits another opponent or the wall.
Press [Y] while zip-lining.
Fight Crusher Hogan
Go to specials menu, choose "Training", then enter basic combat. After a couple of swarms of enemies, Crusher Hogan will appear. To get up to him easily, enable the "Unlimited webbing" code and keep using the Web Dome or more powerful Web Dome attacks. Crusher Hogan has a life meter and takes a couple of minutes to defeat.
Hold down "Web" then press [L] to zip. You should zip a little then flip upside down. This helps you jump on the Green Goblin's glider in some levels.
To perform the unlisted web combo, zip up to a ceiling. While zipping back down, hold [Y].
On any level in which you have to swing through the city, use you height meter to swing down to the absolute lowest you can go. Cruise at that height. After about ten seconds or more, you will hear people down on the streets start talking about Spider-Man. They will say things such as "Look out honey, the Bugle says Spider-Man's dangerous!" and Spider-Man will reply "Yeah, but they sure have talented photographers!", as well as other amusing anecdotes.
When you playing as the Green Goblin, fly on then glider as low as you can go when outside or in the city. People will start to make comments about you.
Very high view
When you get the Green Goblin suit, go on your glider and fly up as high as possible in the first level. Keep jumping and going on the glider immediately afterwards for a very high view of the level.
The Big Lebowski reference in Pinhead Bowling

Fake movie ads in Pinhead Bowling
In Pinhead Bowling training, look on the side walls when you start to see will be ads featuring fake movies.
Enable the "Play as Mary Jane" code. Complete the game and watch the ending sequence. Mary Jane will kiss another Mary Jane.
At the start of the game when you have to take pictures of yourself, get on any tall building and look around in the sky, in the direction of the Activision building. The world "CHAOS" will be written in the clouds.
Glitch: Super Mech killed by friendly fire
When you fight the Super Mech in OsCorp after you destroy the generators, jump on the mech's neck. All the other enemies will fire, hit the neck, and kill him.
Glitch: Green Goblin off his glider
On the level where you first see the Green Goblin, first save Mary Jane. Then use [L] + [B] then [L] + [B] again to get the Advanced Impact Gloves. Jump up and punch the Goblin. Note: Do not swing while using the gloves or they will disappear. The Goblin will then fall off his glider and become frozen on the ground. His glider will be suspended in mid-air but you cannot jump onto it. After doing this glitch, you cannot finish the level.
Before the Vulture Escapes level, a tip reading "Hold down the web mod button" will appear instead of "Hold down the web mode button".
Glitch: Web Zip on the sky
Stand on the highest skyscraper in the first level and enter look around mode. You will be able to Web Zip onto the sky. Try to aim towards the center of the level, on the blue sky.
Glitch: Crawling on floor
In the The Search For Justice level, swing to the building with the woman who has lost her purse. Kill the members of the Skull Gang. Walk up to the lady and she will ask you to find her purse. Swing to the building with her purse. Kill the members of the Skull Gang and get the purse. Go back to the building with the lady, but do not return her purse yet. Swing to the wall behind the lady. She will thank you for finding her purse. After she disappears, you will be crawling on the floor. If you press [A] or climb onto a wall, you will return to normal.
Glitch: Jump off building and live
While playing as the Green Goblin on the first level, go to the tall building next to the end of the level. Do a running dash jump off the side with the end level spider icon. When you reach the bottom, you will end up still alive.
On some of the earlier levels, if you are swinging or gliding, you can release the web or jump off glider. When you are about to die, you will automatically start swinging or the glider will appear below you.
