Saving unlocked costumes
When you unlock a costume (without using cheat codes),
go to the main menu and select "Controller Pak", then
choose "Save Game Data". If this is not done, the costumes
will not be saved. This will not work when the costumes are unlocked
using cheat codes.
Defeating Carnage under the hard
Web-jerk him into the sonic field immediately, and
keep webbing him until he dies out. Do this as Symbiote Spider-Man
or Captain Universe, as they have unlimited webbing.
When you start out, simply select impact webbing. He is already
targeted, so it will hit him plus he will not be able to attack.
Do not release the buttons until his meter runs out, which takes
awhile. After his meter runs out, you will have to stop the impact
webbing attack. He will probably come after you, but a couple
of punches should take care of him.
While fighting Rhino, stand by an electrified pillar.
When he starts to charge, hide behind the pillar. He will get
shocked and Spidey will make a smart comment. Alternately, you
can have him charge the barrels, and jump when he is near. This
is the best way to get the comic.
Hint Defeating Scorpion
When fighting Scorpion under the hard difficulty setting,
fight him as much as possible until JJJ runs into the other room.
If you attack Scorpion and quickly run back into the other room,
he will not go after Spidey. Use the "Web Ball" attack
with Symbiote Spidey or Captain Universe, as they have unlimited
When you are fighting Scorpion for the first time, just sling
him with your web, then punch or kick him one or two times. Then,
jump away and you will also throw furniture at him.
When you get to the sewer and you see the lizardmen,
it only takes this many hits on a close range web ball attack:
Kid mode: 1
To easily defeat the lizards on the subway level, enable the "Unlimited
webbing" code or get a costume with unlimited webbing. Make
lots of web domes constantly. The lizards will either die or fall
of the subway.
Continue shooting web strings and eventually your opponent
In the missile attack level, the missiles can only
hit you if you are on the completely boarded up windows. Avoid
them and you will not get hit.
Bugles Basement: Hidden room
Towards the end of the level, directly behind the last
generator you have to destroy, is a hidden room. You can just
walk straight through the wall. There are two normal web cartridges
and one magnesium located there.
Building Top Chase: Find the Green
On the level, you will pass one crane. You will see
the second crane off in the distance with a large hook attached.
Swing out to that crane. On the top is an exposed hatch. Drop
in to find the Green Goblin's hideout and some Spidey Armor.
Stopping The Fog level: Spidey Armor
There is Spidey Armor in the upper portion of the center
column . You can see it in the introduction sequence at the beginning
of the level.
Waterfront Warehouse: Secret Armor
There is a secret Spidey armor on level 6 stage 1 "Waterfront
Warehouse". At the final drop, near the broken grate door
that you can break, go on the side of the grate door and fall
while holding [Forward]. You should land on a secret platform.
Follow the path until you see the armor. The armor is useful at
the next stage, "The Underwater Trench".
When playing the level after fighting Mysterio you will at one
point reach a fan with a cage over top, so you cannot fall through.
When you go to the next one in the level it will not have a cage
over the top. Jump down through the fan and quickly press [R].
If done correctly, you will stop between the two fans and find
another entrance that contains "Trusty Spidey Armor".
Note: Do not move around too much or the first fan will hurt you
and Spidey will most likely fall all the way down because he is
To find Spidey Armor, defeat all the Symbiotes (so you have no
trouble), and destroy the first two generators. Then, go to the
back of the warehouse (not where the last two generators are located)
to find a wall to the left. Climb up the wall, and you will see
a fire webbing cartridge. Walk inside a box and you will see a
golden cartridge. Touch it to get the Spidey Armor, then get fire
Zip-Line Training: Electrified Spider-Man
Enable the "Invincibility" code then start
"Zip-Line Training" in training mode. Intentionally
drop down to the floor. You will not die. Zip back up to the ceiling.
Spider-Man should now have an electrical aura around him has crawls
on the ceiling and falls.
Unlimited fire webbing
Use a costume that has unlimited webbing and collect
the fire web icon. You will have unlimited fire webbing for the
remainder of that stage.
Extra web cartridge capacity
Use the following trick to get nine web cartridges
in the Peter Parker or Quick-Change Spider-Man costumes. Start
a game in either of those costumes in "Kid mode." Since
this costume only allows two cartridges to be carried, you will
start out with only that number. Die immediately by jumping down
a cliff in the first level. Choose to restart, and you should
resume with nine cartridges as you are supposed to in "Kid
mode". Note: After you die, you cannot collect anymore cartridges
until you get down to one cartridge.
Lose less health
Start a game with the "Invincibility" code
enabled. Get to an area where you are allowed to save to a controller
pack (such as after a boss or a major battle). Turn off the power.
Continue the game without enabling the code. For the first few
hits, you will retain the invincibility. Afterwards, you will
start to take very little damage, thus making it very hard for
you to die.
Lose less webbing
Start a game with the "Unlimited webbing"
code enabled. Get to an area where you are allowed to save to
a controller pack (such as after a boss or a major battle). Turn
off the power. Continue the game without enabling the code. You
should retain unlimited webbing for awhile, but then start to
lose very little webbing. For example, when using a "Web
Dome" will only use up about one eighth of your current web
cartridge, instead of about seven eighths of it.
If you run out of fire webbing to fight the Symbiotes
in the warehouse level, there are two types of boxes that you
can pick up that are flammable. They are large and are scattered
throughout the level. Use these to instantly kill your enemies.
Enter an obscene word as a code. Spider-Man will appear
in one of his costumes, punch the code, and another word will

Thug: If you have enough web fluid, just web trap him until he
is down and he will disappear. You can also just web yank them
into a wall, impact web them off a building, or grapple them and
punch them until they are gone.
Bank Thug: Same strategy as for Thug.
Police and Swat: Do not bother fighting them, just keep moving.
Police Helicopter: When you see the target, move. The easiest
way to get out of the way is to jump towards the nearest building
and web swing over. You cannot destroy the helicopters.
Lizard Men: Strategies vary, depending on where you are. If facing
multiple men in a tunnel, web yank one to you and finish him off
with your fist one at a time. If one is near water, web yank or
impact web him into it. If one is on a pipe above a pit, impact
web him or yank him in.
Symbiotes: First, destroy the generators. If alone (without fire
webbing) jump and hit punch or kick to hit him from above, then
hit with a 1, 2, 3 combo and repeat. If near a furnace, knock
him into it to set him on fire. If you have fire webbing, impact
web him or web trap him until he catches fire. When in the warehouse,
pick up a can or box that is labeled flammable and throw it at
them. If you are low on energy and on the subway or fighting a
large group of symbiotes, constantly create web-domes until they
are all gone, or the sub stops.
Any enemy can be grabbed and punched or kicked except the Bosses.
Often the grab maneuver followed by a punch or kick will do the
job. Most often the punch is more effective because you can perform
it as many times as needed to successfully kill the enemy. Note:
This tactic does not work as well on the pink Symbiotes. They
can sometimes throw you over their back.
Unlock the enhanced strength costumes, then use the web gloves
to kill enemies easier: thugs (1), henchmen (1 or 2), lizardmen
(1 or 3), and symbiotes (3)
Enable the "Invincibility" and "Unlimited
webbing" codes, then do a training mission. This is the easiest
way to unlock Quick-Change Spidey.
When facing an opponent, jump and press [Punch]
or [Kick] buttons while in the air. Spider-Man will fly through
the air and hit the opponent.
Web Dome: Press [Analog-stick Right] + "C-Up
Glitch: Floating web dome
"Web Yank: Press [C-Up] then [Analog-stick Left]
a half second later
Web Ball: Press [Analog-stick Up] + [C-Up]
Go to a level where the ground shakes and use web dome.
When the ground shakes again the dome will be suspended in mid-air,
and stay there even if you break it.
Glitch: Return to normal webdome
Collect a Fire-Webbing cartridge and use a Web Dome.
The Web Dome will be orange, like all other fire webbing. However,
when Spider-Man stands up and breaks the Web Dome, the explosion
fragments of the dome will be white, like normal webbing.
Glitch: Level 1.4 (The Bomb): Guard walks
After destroying both cops in front of the television,
jump to the roof and sneak past the guard that appears. Kill the
robbers, pick up the bomb and throw it to the back of the safe.
Before shutting the doors, aim and hit the guard that you went
past with just a little web. As he runs at you, run to the back
of the safe. Face the guard, and as soon as he approaches you,
jump over him and shut the safe. He will stay in the safe until
the scene almost cuts away. He will pass through the safe's door
and start hurting you.
Glitch: Bank level: Men walk through door
In the bank level go to the security center (first
floor) and kill the thug. Then, open all the doors. Two men will
charge in. Lure the men to the security center, then shut the
door and use the top rail to get out. Get seen by the men and
they will walk through the door.
Alternately, use the Spidey Unlimited costume, shut the doors,
and disappear. The men will go through the door.
Glitch: Bank level: Get stuck
Note: This is best done with as Captain Universe Spider-Man.
In the bank, on level 1 go to the location where you find the
first hostage. Kill all the thugs, then go to the second cubicle.
Zip up and go to the top right corner (looking from the glass),
then fall. If done correctly, some of Spider-Man will be in the
cubicle. Walk in the cubicle and you will momentarily see darkness.
Eventually, you will reappear but become stuck, and eventually
