This will be my first ever Playstation 3 game walkthrough! I did some walkthrough, some trivia, some questions, the special thanks and no thanks, the “unlockables” and some more stuff! 05 Feb 2009 – Before writing anything on the guide today, I just confirmed that it IS definitely impossible to get to Governors Island or the Statue of Liberty. I did some more on the walkthrough, up to the end of the courthouse bombing mission. I also added the New Game + section. 06 Feb 2009 – 07 Feb 2009 – ##################################################################### I) Legal Stuff This may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.

I tell ya, it’s been a tiring search for Web of Shadows. I was all set to get the PS2 version of this game for Christmas, but then I found out that Activision lied to us (just like they did with Spidey 3). The Playstation 2 version of this game is a frikkin’ 2D sidescroller and a bad one at that. Activision never told us it wouldn’t be a 3D free roaming game or anything. So I began my search for the PS3 version instead. After a few months, I finally found the bugger. I found it to be a very enjoyable game, so the long search was worth it! I noticed that many, many people have been wanting and requesting a walkthrough for this game, so I decided to put one together. Enjoy it! --------- III) Contact details If you have any questions about this FAQ, then e-mail moi! My e-mail address is – firstname.lastname@example.org Please remember to read the guide thoroughly before asking me anything though. Chances are you’ll find your answer! Please don’t ask me about where to find each and every Spidey Token because quite frankly, they’re super easy to find. I was locating them easily without even trying, at times, there were 3 on screen at once! As if it couldn’t get any easier, after you’ve collected 1000, the Token locations appear on the mini map for when you find the next 1000! There are over 2000 Tokens hidden around Manhattan. --------- IV) Controls Spider-Man Web of Shadows retains the same basic control scheme of the previous Spidey games by Treyarch, but with a few differences. Here they are; ============================================================ Left Analogue Stick – Move Spidey ============================================================ Right Analogue Stick – Move camera ============================================================ Square button – Attack, Talk to character ============================================================ Triangle button – Web Strike ============================================================ X Button – Jump/Swing Boost ============================================================ Circle button – Web Shot (Red Suit), Throw/Grab (Black Suit) ============================================================ L1 button – Wall sprint, Web Climb ============================================================ L2 button – Spider Sense (hold down), Lock on (tap) ============================================================ L3 button – Switch between outfits ============================================================ R1 button – Web Shield, Wall Crawl ============================================================ R2 button – Web Swing (hold down), Web Zip (tap) ============================================================ R3 button – Centre the camera ============================================================ Down (D-Pad) button – Summon an ally ============================================================ Up (D-Pad) button – Dismiss the summoned ally ============================================================ Left/Right (D-Pad) buttons – Switch through allies ============================================================ R1 + X + Left Analogue Stick – Evade ============================================================ L1 + Square – Special Attack 1 ============================================================ L1 + Triangle – Special Attack 2 ============================================================ L1 + Circle – Special Attack 3 ============================================================= Got those? Great okay, just come back here whenever you get lost! --------- V) Upgrades Upon defeating an enemy, you are awarded experience points. These are kind of like currency; you use them to spend on new moves for our hero. ################################################ ################################################ ##### This section will be expanded upon ##### ##### in a future update!! ##### ################################################ ################################################ --------- VI) Walkthrough Here we go! Okay then, we begin with a cutscene showing Spidey walking across a rooftop to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. Strange song choice but whatever! Chaos is happening all around Peter. He then leaps off the building and takes down a few enemies whilst he remembers things that friends and family have told him about a certain something... ------- Prelude ------- Once you’re in control of Spidey, head towards that yellow pillar. Yikes! Tons of Symbiotes! It’s time to get to grips with the new combat system. Eliminate every Symbiote you see! The small group take one hit each to defeat. After you’ve cleaned up, a yellow point of interest (POI) will appear on screen, so follow it. Once you’re at the destination, you’ll come across a few more enemies; be a hero and take ‘em down. Once again, they all only take just one hit to beat. Another POI will appear afterwards, so follow it. If you get lost, take a look at the lower left hand corner of the screen; that’s your mini map which will be familiar to you if you’ve played previous Spidey games by Treyarch. More enemies, more one hit kills. Beat them and a cutscene will show a soldier get himself into a sticky situation. Spidey will jump and the game will prompt you to press the R2 button to make him swing, so press it! Spidey will end up on the wall and it’s time to play around with the wall combat system. A few different types of Symbiotes will ambush you on the wall, so get to it and beat the living daylights outta them. These enemies take a few hits to kill. Press L2 to lock onto an enemy. If you repeatedly tap the Square button, Spidey will do a stylish little combo. If an enemy is giving you a hard time (very unlikely) then press and hold the R1 button to have Spidey block incoming attacks with his new Web Shield move! After you take out the last one, the soldier will be carried up into the air by a Vulture symbiote, the game will ask you to press the Circle to button to shoot webs. How do I shot web? Yeah, I went there! After Spidey overwhelms the Vulture Symbiote with impact webbing, you’ll be prompted to press Circle again to save the civilian. Hm? Whats this? Spidey’s freaking out! After the cutscene, Spidey will be carrying the soldier. Make your way to the POI. After you’ve made it, more freaking out from Spidey ensues. Spidey is frantically looking for Mary Jane! You’ll now be asked to help the S.H.I.E.L.D agents fight off some more Symbiotes, so help ‘em out. One hit each and they’re outta there! After that, a pod on the side of a building makes itself known. Jump on the wall and head to it. It is protected by a few symbiotes, so take them out first and then focus on destroying that pod. The pod itself takes quite a few hits to demolish, so keep at it. It can also fight back, but don’t give it a chance to! Another cutscene starts, introducing Luke Cage and Mary Jane... and the infamous Black Suit! But now it’s time to begin the flashback to find out just how the heck things got so messed up in the first place. It started 4 days ago... --------- He’s Back --------- Spidey is shown fighting with Venom, eventually getting some symbiote on his costume. You’ll be prompted to press Circle yet again to throw a car at Eddie. Throwing cars is unique to the Black Suit. Thus begins a boss fight with; <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Venom – Yup, Venom is back as the big baddy for the third game in a row (Ultimate Spidey and Spidey 3 both had Venom as the main villain). This battle isn’t really that hard at all seeing as it is the first boss fight of the game. Chuck two cars at him and a short cutscene will take over. Brock will leap onto the wall of a nearby building. Wall Crawl and hit him with your fists and after a short while another short cutscene will interrupt the battle. Chuck another 2 cars at him and we’re done with Venom! For now anyways... <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Notice how MJ calls Spider-Man, Peter? In front of two guards no less! Way to go red! Anyways, after Spidey gets his birthday present (which will mysteriously vanish...), you’ll be prompted to press that L3 button (press the left analogue stick down) to change suits. This can be done at anytime you wish. Red Suit is faster but weaker and Black Suit is stronger but slower. Pick whichever suit you want to use, but remember that it will affect which of the 4 different endings you will get at the end of the game. Now, follow that ambulance! Oh, you also need to swing through those yellow targets between the buildings. Press L2 to lock onto it if you want and follow it, if you can you can just jump onto the top of the ambulance and let it take you to the hospital. Once at the hospital, a gang war will conveniently start right outside! ---------------- Surgical Strikes ---------------- After the cutscene, jump off the building and start wailing on those thugs. Remember that you fight with the red and blue suit, you’ll gain Red Points and with the Black Suit you’ll get Black Points. These determine who will be available to come to your aid during a battle; if you’re a good little boy then the good guys will help you out, but if you’re a bad seed then the bad guys will come and lend a helping hand. After taking them all out, more enemies will show up, but so will a certain friend. It’s Luke Cage, the Power Man himself! You’ll now be asked to help Luke deal with the hoodlums, so do it ya little monkey! Pretty soon, the boys in blue will arrive as well. After disposing of all the enemies, Luke will stand in the middle of the street, so run up to him and have a chat. He’ll tell you to meet him in the park later. Congrats, you’ve completed your first mission! Press the X button to visit the Upgrades screen. Spidey has tons of moves and upgrades to buy with the experience you earn. There is even a way to start a new game with all the upgrades you unlocked in your previous run through. Both the Red and Black suits have moves you can upgrade. Some moves aren’t available right now, but will become purchasable as you progress through the game. Just remember, it is very possible to beat the game without gaining all the moves and upgrades! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission activated: Stop 5 crimes. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Okay, now the game properly begins! Feel free to just swing around the city if you want. The game progresses at your pace. Along the way, you may notice red and blue spiders scattered around the city. These are Spider Tokens and are very hard to miss. You gain a new level for each number of Spider Tokens you acquire. Level 10 is reached at 1000 Tokens and level 11 (the max level) is at 2000. I know it sounds like a lot, but trust me, there are well over 2000 Tokens in Manhattan! I have 2002 Tokens at the time of writing this. Right, so we need to stop 5 crimes. Begin swinging around the city when you’re good and ready. Pretty soon, you’ll see a little icon appear on the mini map on the bottom left hand side of the screen. The icon is a star inside a circle. Follow it to find a random crime. They will be gang members having shootouts with the police. They are easily dispatched! After taking care of them, check the very bottom of the screen to make sure you’ve done it (you’ll get a something/5) Do this 5 times. Once you’ve done that, a yellow icon will appear on the mini map, so head to it. Luke Cage is waiting for you in a small park. (Pssst! There’s a Spider Token on the little castle behind him, centre of the park! -_^). Talk to Mr. Cage. Eventually, you’ll notice some missions become available. This walkthrough will not tell you how to do the OPTIONAL missions, because there’s really no need to. The OPTIONAL missions are infinite to my knowledge. They just keep going. For example, one OPTIONAL mission requires you to beat a certain number of criminals. After you beat the desired number, it asks you to beat a higher number of criminals. Then a higher number and so on. Do these optional missions if you want to, some of them give out some great experience! Anyways, the choices are as follows; - Go to hit location - Chat about the Gang War – OPTIONAL - Goodbye If you pick Goodbye, then you can go back to free roaming around the city. Alrighty then, pick the first choice and then select ‘Accept’ to start the mission or ‘Decline’ to not accept it and go back to free roaming again. Now select Goodbye to start the next mission. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission activated; Go to hit location. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Head for that yellow blip on the mini map. After reaching the destination, its time to learn how to use that Spidey Sense! Press and hold L2 to trigger your Spider Sense. Spider-Sense highlights targets: Blue = Civilian Allies, Red = Enemies Press L2 to lock the camera on the informant. A vertical column of light highlights the locked target. Press L2 a second time to disengage the camera lock. Now press and hold L2 again to once again trigger that trusty Spidey Sense! One more time to lock the camera on a target. Now move the right analogue stick to the left a few times to find out just who your foes really are. Now it’s time to battle! You have to beat the thugs whilst protecting the informant, if his health bar is depleted, game over! But we’re not gonna let that happen now are we? Are each thug is defeated, you’ll be asked to press L2 to find the next foe, do so and pound on him until he’s out of the game. There are 4 enemies total. Mission completed! Buy some upgrades if you’ve got the experience! Head back to the park and speak with Mr. Cage again. The following options become available; - Thug Bashing – Part 1 – OPTIONAL - Chat about the Gang War – OPTIONAL - Save 3 civilians – OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick the last one. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission activated: Spider Sense 10 thugs. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Press and hold the L2 button, the camera will move to face an enemy and he’ll glow more than Joel Schumacher’s Gotham City. Keeping in mind that you only have to locate them, you don’t need to defeat the thugs. You can, but it’s not mandatory. Head back to Luke. After speaking with him, the following options are available; - Cage Match - Thug Bashing Part 1 - OPTIONAL - Chat about the Gang War – Part 1 – OPTIONAL - Save 3 civilians - OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick ‘Cage Match’ and its time to do some training! ---------- Cage Match ---------- You need to perform a Web Strike 5 times to proceed. This can be a little tricky at first, but after a few tries, you’ll get the hang of it. And this move is pretty much need for a few future boss battles. Press Triangle to have our hero shoot a webline to Luke and JUST as he’s about to make contact with him, press Triangle again to have him bounce off Cage. If you’re really good, you can get off 2 Web Strikes before the game resets your position for the next one! I actually did 3 in a row one time. Next up is Web Aborting. Press Triangle and Spidey will shoot a webline to his opponent, only this time we’re gonna hit the X button at any time afterwards to have him cancel the attack. Do this twice. The final move is a little trickier than the others to do, it’s all about timing. Press Triangle and just before the opponent hits you, press Triangle again to counter their attack, you follow? You need to do this twice to proceed. Try pressing it just before you reach Luke. Done that? Great! Mission Completed! Completion of this little training session earns you an ally, Luke of course! See that red bar above Spidey’s mug shot? That’s what’s known as the special meter. You can fill it by beating criminals up! When it’s full, hold the Down D-Pad button down for a few seconds (until Spidey’s head starts flashing) and the selected ally will come to help you! You can dismiss them by holding down the Up D-Pad button. Also, when you get more allies, you can cycle through which one you want with the Left or Right D-Pad buttons. If you’re bad, the bad guys will be the ones available, if you’re good then the good guys will be the characters on offer! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission activated: Web Strike 10 thugs ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Use that Web Strike move on 10 thugs around the city. (Pssst! You’ll be standing next to one of the big bridges leading out of Manhattan Island. There’s a Spider Token on the bridge! -_^) You should be able to get at least 2 Web Strikes on a single thug. After you’ve done 10 Web Strikes, head back to our old buddy Luke in the park! Speak to him and these options will be shown; - Find Training location - Thug Bashing – Part 1 – OPTIONAL - Chat about the Gang War – OPTIONAL - Save 3 civilians - OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick that first option, then ‘Goodbye’ and away we go! Head to that yellow POI. -------------- Chain Reaction -------------- Okay, now it’s time to start chaining those Web Attacks! First up are three thugs. Use a Web Strike on the first one and then, while Spidey is in the air after using it, press Triangle again to launch another webline to the next thug and take it from there. Remember the timing; his the Triangle button a second time JUST as Spidey reaches his opponent! It initiates a slow motion part in between each Web Strike to help you by the way. Land in the yellow area next to Luke. Mr. Cage has another group for us to take out! There are now 4 enemies. No problem right! There is no slow motion this time. Head to the same spot as Power Man and you’ll see that he now wants you to Web Strike a group of 6 enemies! You’ll do it, don’t worry! After you’re done, run up to Luke again. Hm, what’s this? A parlay? Mission completed! Some new upgrades should be unlocked, so take those hard earned points of your and spend, spend, spend! Okay, now we need to find the Rolling 7’s hideout. The Rolling 7’s is the name of one of the gang’s we’ve been pwning. Head to old POI! Huh? DRIVE BY!! TAKE COVER!! ......oh right, we’re in control of Spider-Man aren’t we? Hehehe...! This bit can be fun for some and tricky for others. You need to take out those 5 cars driving around the gas station. To take out cars you can; - Jump on top of the them and press Square to disable them. - Press Square during a Web Swing to Swing Kick them. - Switch to Black Suit, pick them up with Circle and throw them! Keep in mind that the gas station has a health bar. It takes one bullet too many then BOOMSHAKALAKA!!! No more gas station. Buuuuuut, we’re not gonna let that happen are we? After you take out all 5 vehicles, that’s a Mission complete! You will have automatically unlocked an optional mission now – to take out 5 gang cars. Take up the challenge if you so desire. It’s now time to return to the Man of Power... Power Man. >___< Speak with him and the following options will be available; - Wrecking Ball - Thug Bashing – Part 1 – OPTIONAL - Chat about Luke Cage’s origin - OPTIONAL - Chat about the Gang War - OPTIONAL - Save 3 civilians - OPTIONAL - Heavy Hitters - OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick that first option (Wrecking Ball) then Accept! Alright, this part is quite fun. You’ll be on a small building with Luke. Notice the group of thugs in front of you on the ground below? Well, we’re gonna take ‘em all out with one swinging kick! You remember how to do that don’t you? If you don’t, it’s the Square button whilst Web Swinging. For this bit, jump (so you don’t Web Zip) and then swing towards the thugs. The game will enter slow motion mode for you. After you’ve knocked ‘em down like bowling pins, follow Mr. Cage. Now you get to knock over another bunch of thugs, so do so! Follow Luke again after you’ve knocked out the second group. Now you have to do it one more time. Run up to Luke once more. Mission Completed! You’ll automatically unlock another Optional mission – to Swing Kick 10 thugs, do it if you want. Head for the yellow POI and speak to Power Man again. The following is available; - Go to the Park Ave Neighbourhood - Thug Bashing – Part 1 – OPTIONAL - Chat about Luke Cage’s origin – OPTIONAL - Chat about the Gang War – OPTIONAL - Save 3 civilians – OPTIONAL - Heavy Hitters – OPTIONAL - Goodbye Select that first choice. Looks like the leader of the Rolling 7’s has agreed to the parley! Accept the mission and then pick ‘Goodbye’. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission Activated: Go to the Park Ave Neighbourhood. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Head to that yellow POI. Now, if you start this mission, your uncompleted optional missions will be lost. So do some more optional stuff first if you want to and then continue. --------------- Who’s the Boss? --------------- Drop to the floor and take out those 2 gang members. More will appear at the other end of the road. Swing Kick them all into submission if you can. After taking them out, another group will appear at the other end of the street. Another Swing Kick will take care of them! Now, another group will appear at the other end of the street again, you know what to do, so hop to it! If you’ve been Swing Kicking all of them, you’ll complete that optional mission! Guess what happens now. Yeah, ANOTHER group of gang members appear at the other end of the street again. Take ‘em all out and a cutscene will take over. The leader of the Rolling 7’s will agree to the parley and you’ll get a nice Mission Complete! After this, Spidey’s hands free cell phone will start up and Peter and MJ will have a little conversation. Feel free to swing around, whilst waiting for them to finish. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission Activated: Get to the parley. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow the POI, it’ll take you to a rooftop. ------------------- Parley in the park. ------------------- Okay, the two gang members have rendezvoused with Luke, maybe everything’ll turn out okay... wait, maybe not. Snipers have appeared all over the rooftops surrounding the park! It’s up to you to take ‘em down. Use your Web Strike. You’ll also noticed that this part is timed, but don’t worry, you get 4 seconds added to the timer after every sniper you defeat. There are 22 in total to beat. After you’ve beaten the tenth one, the game will slow down and request that you tap R2 to Web Zip. Then take down the rest. After beating 22 of them, Spidey will find out that the whole Gang War was a set up! Now you are needed to beat a further 21 snipers, so do what you did last time and Web Strike them all. After the fifth one, it may be a good idea to double jump over to the next one as the gap in between them is quite big. After taking out the last one, a cutscene will take over. The two lead gang members will pull guns out on one another and you’ll now need to make a choice! Red suit choice – Spidey reveals that the gang war was a set up and gets the two leaders to make their peace. Black suit choice – Spidey will not tell them of the set up and you’ll have to fight off all the gang members. Choose to be good or bad and remember that the choice you make here will influence what happens at the end of the game. After the ensuing cutscene, more upgrades should be available to you. Spidey will now reminisce about what he did next. Looks like we’re gonna pay a visit to Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mission Activated: Go to Kingpin Tower. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Head towards the POI. When you near Kingpin Tower, a familiar face in the form of the Black Cat will come running out and we’ve got a chase on our hands! This chase reminds me of Spider-Man 2; you had to chase Felecia many times in that game! Anyways, give chase! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cut to the Chase. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You’ll be locked onto Black Cat initially, but you can lock off. Don’t do that! Felecia like big jumps, cart wheeling and running up the sides of buildings. You can run up the sides of buildings too ya know, press and hold the L1 button and Spidey will scale the building faster than you can hauler “Aunt May”. After a little while, a mini cutscene will show Felecia scaling Grand Central Terminal, it’ll tell you how to climb up walls; all you need to do is press against it (whilst on the ground). Once you’re on the wall, Press r1 to Wall Climb or L1 to Wall Run from the ground or the air. Chase Black Cat up the side of the very tall skyscraper! Peter and Felicia should have a bit of dialogue here. Once at the top, Felicia will reach a Roxxon building, so jump over after her! If you can, try and Web Zip over to her. If you can’t, don’t worry, Black Cat isn’t going anywhere until you catch up with her. She’ll head across a bank and then start running up the Empire State Building. Along the way, it’ll tell you to tap R2 to Web Zip. If you’re ever at the side of a building, tap R2 to gain considerable height instantly! In fact, if you use multiple Web Zips, then you’ll actually go right past Ms. Hardy! Once at the top another cutscene plays with Peter telling her to “give it a rest”. Looks like she ain’t listening, so resume the chase. Pretty soon, she’ll jump down to street level and we’re done with the chase. However, enemies of gliders will now appear. Huh... Norman Osborne, eat yer heart out. There are 6 of these guys and the game lists them as Black Cat’s escorts. So get over to them and start kicking arse! Web Strike works wonders against the flying enemies, where as normal melee combo’s are great against the non fliers. Remember that you can block attacks with the Web Shield by pressing and holding R1. After taking out the Green Goblin knock offs, Moon Knight will appear! Uh- Oh, seems he thinks you were behind the robbery!? Not to worry though, Spidey quickly explains the situation and now we’re off to fight; <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Black Cat - Keep in mind that you will need to make your way to the rooftop where she arrives at. Black Cat is fast and agile. She is accompanied by a glider enemy, so take him out with Web Strikes first. As for attacks, well she has one where she reels you in for a kiss and then kicks you away, she can counter one of your hits and hurls you away, she has slashing melee moves, she twirls her rope around and reels you in to step on you, oh and be wary of using your Web Strike on her; she can easily counter it and spins around you causing damage. She also loves to pose. Try hitting her when she poses! After you’ve dealt a chunk of damage to her health bar, she tuck her kitty tail in between her legs and escape temporarily, leaving you with a few more glider enemies. Take ‘em out with that old trusty Web Strike and get that lost health back... if you were actually damaged that is! There are 4 glider guys. After besting them all, it’s time to wail on Black Cat again. She’ll be on the wall for a short time this time round though. After knocking another chunk off her life bar, you’ll need to face another wave of glider bad guys, so do what needs to be done. There are also a few enemies on the rooftop and the wall. If they get in your way whilst fighting Felecia, then it might be best to get rid of them first. It is also possible to tie her up with webbing! Impact Webbing works wonders here. Keep up the attacks, watch out when she’s twirling her whip around and you’ll eventually beat her! <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> After you’ve defeated Cat, follow the orange POI to find her. Also, be ready. You remember those annoying cineractives from Spider-Man 3? Well, they’re back unfortunately. Press these buttons in order when prompted: X  O Don’t worry if you get it wrong, the cineractive cutscene will start again from the beginning. However, it is quite fun to see the amusing outcomes if you mess up on the cineractives at any button press! Anyways, after doing that, follow the red POI. It’ll take you to the top of a tallish building, begin climbing it and a cutscene will play. Black Cat will start hitting on Peter and you’ll need to make a choice again: Red suit choice – Spider-Man rejects Black Cat’s offer and swings away. Black suit choice – Spidey embraces her offer and she tells him she’ll give him the city someday. Pick whichever one you want and you’ll get a Mission Complete! You’ll also gain Black Cat as an ally along with Moon Knight. That’s 3 allies now. A new POI has appeared, so follow it (it’s quite far away). The POI will take you to Moon Knight! I love his crescent moon shaped aircraft. Talk to him. The following choices will be available; - Under Construction - Save 3 civilians - OPTIONAL - Chat about Khonshu - OPTIONAL - Goodbye You will start the next mission and also get an optional one automatically. The optional one requires you to defeat 50 Kingpin Tech Enemies. Your objectives for the main mission however are to destroy 5 Wall Drills and to defeat 10 Tech Heavies. You should se a red and white icon appear on the mini map, so head to it. The Tech Heavies will be on the side of the building, around the Wall Drill. If you want, you can just wait on the rooftop for them to come to you if you don’t like Wall Combat. After they are defeated, destroy that huge drill on the side of the building and begin swinging around. Eventually another unique red and white icon will make itself known. Do the same as the last time. Remember, you need to defeat 10 Tech Heavies and destroy 5 Wall Drills. When you’re done and dusted, head back to Moon Knight by following the POI and talk to him. These options will be available; - Glider Tech - Save 3 civilians – OPTIONAL - Chat about Khonshu – OPTIONAL - Police vs Kingpin – OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick Glider Tech and then Goodbye. Okay, now we need to find an intact glider component. So let’s follow that red/white icon on the mini map. It’ll lead you to the glider enemies that you fought in the Black Cat boss battle. Web strike is the way to go! After you’ve beaten them, another red/white icon appears, so follow it. It will lead to some more glider guys, beat them up to make yet another red/white icon appear on the mini map. Head to it and you’ll see some chocolate cake. Nah just kidding, it’s more enemies. Beat this group and you should get that glider component! Follow that yellow POI back to Moon Knight. You’ll find these options; - Go to Daily Bugle - Save 3 civilians – OPTIONAL - Chat about Khonshu – OPTIONAL - Police vs Kingpin – OPTIONAL - Goodbye Pick that first one, ‘Accept’ and then ‘Goodbye’. Follow the yellow POI to the Daily Bugle, it’s not that far. Wait a minute, the Bugle isn’t a target? --------------- Court Ordinance --------------- Crud, a timer... You have just under a minute to follow the new POI to the courthouse. Clever, they used the Bugle as a false lead! After the cutscene you will need to defeat 8Tech enemies, so what are ya waiting for? Run around the courthouse, beating the buggers up. After you take out the required number a cutscene will show... great, bombs! I thought we’d seen the last of bombs in Spider-Man 3, remember Luke Carlyle? Anyways, the courthouse now has its very own shiny red health bar. You need to stop that bar from depleting. Firstly, don’t bother with the enemies, just run up to the front door and go near the bomb to pick it up. Now follow the POI to the bomb squad and get near them to drop the explosive off. Head back and start defeating some more enemies. Pretty soon, another one of them will drop off another bomb. Repeat what you did last time. Those big guys are the ones dropping the bombs off, so make sure you beat them. If you cannot get to a bomb in time then it goes off, taking a chunk out of the courthouse and its health bar. After you’ve done enough, a cutscene will show some red helicopters dropping off some scrawny guys. Problem is they’re wearing huge armoured suits. These things are hella annoying and cheap as they love lobbing mini rockets at you which send you flying miles away. You’ll need to defeat 2 of these to proceed. There are two ways to defeat them. The fist is just using melee attacks and acrobatics to hit them and avoid their attacks. Alternatively you can do the following: - Switch to Black Suit. - Chuck a car at the suit. - Run up to it and press Square. - Do the following cineractive – , X, O This will disable a part of them. Now throw another car at the suit. - Run up to it and press Square again. - Tap the X button repeatedly after Spidey has thrown the guy out. - Now pound on the suit before it comes to life again, or you can throw another car at it to finish it off. It sounds like a lot I know. These are definitely the most annoying non-boss enemies in the game in my humble opinion. You also have to watch the courthouse’s health bar still. After all that’s done, you’ll get a Mission Complete! Follow that POI back to Moon Knight. ################################# And this is where I’ve gotten up to with the main walkthrough at this point. Be sure to keep checking, as I’ll be updating it constantly! ################################# --------- VII) Unlockables Nothing!! That’s right, there is nothing to unlock in the whole game. Fingers crossed for some Downloadable Content though! By the way, the Nintendo Wii version has 6 exclusive costumes, which is really effing unfair. I mean, what makes that console so special? The costumes are; Cosmic Spider-Man Ben Reilly Cosmic Spider-Man Iron Spidey Spider Carnage Spider-Man 2099 I hope these costumes become downloadable content in the near future, but FREE Downloadable content. I mean, why should we have to pay extra for something that the Wii owners got for free? --------- VIII) New Game + Tired of losing all your upgrades and moves whenever you want to start a new game? Fear not, because there’s a way around that! Just follow these simple steps true believer; - After beating the game, watch the credits all the way through. - You’ll be back on the main menu, so press continue. - The credits will start up again, so let them play fully again. - You’ll be back on the main menu, now quit the game and go back to your PS3’s menu screen. - Load the game up again. - On the main menu, select the continue option again. - The game will begin from the beginning, but you have all your upgrades, moves, experience points and Spider Tokens! --------- IX) Frequently asked questions Q) Can I get to the other island in this game? A) Unfortunately, you can’t get to Roosevelt Island. This is strange because you could get to it in the other Spidey games... Q) Bummer. What about the subways and sewers from Spider-Man 3? A) Nope. Treyarch really were quite lazy with the explorable areas in this Spider-Man title and also removed all the free roaming subways and sewers. Which is crap, cause I loved swinging through all the winding tunnels and stuff. Q) Damn it! What about... A) No, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are again unvisitable. Makes you wonder why they bother putting them into the games really doesn’t it? Q) Hey, I’ve heard that song in the intro before! What is it called again? A) The song you are referring to is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata! Q) Why has the Playstation 2 version of this game received so much criticism? A) Because it is a 2D sidescroller. Activision didn’t tell anyone that a completely different company (known as AMAZE Entertainment for some odd reason) was developing the PS2 version of Web of Shadows, so many people found out after they had purchased it. From what I’ve read, it’s not a very well made game at all. People have said it’s extremely short, Spidey’s punches go through enemies, the last boss fight is a complete joke and more. Sheesh, they did this with Spider- Man 3 in 2007, but at least that was a 3D free roaming game! Q) Is this game based on any of the movies? A) Nope, it’s based on the long running Spider-Man comic book series. There is however a small nod to the movies. Spidey goes (whilst fighting enemies on gliders) “Ugh, the Green Goblin is so 6 years ago! Kids today are into the Sandman and Venom!” or something similar. This is a reference to Spider-Man the movie which came out in 2002 (6 years before this game) and Sandman and Venom were of course villains in Spider-Man 3 (2007). --------- X) Trivia - Keep a look out for the blown up Superhero Registration Act newspaper cover in Times Square. - One of Spidey’s quotes references the Spider-Man movie series directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. - For the first time since Spider-Man 2 the game (2004), Roosevelt Island is no longer accessible. - It is no longer possible to get to the very top of the Empire state Building. - The city map (accessible by pressing the Select button) from previous games has been changed. It is now completely blue in color. To select it, go to Options/Missions then press the X button. - Wolverine has a My Face page! Dork! --------- XI) Glitches ############################ ############################ ##### Will be done in ##### ##### a later update!! ##### ############################ ############################ --------- XII) Special thanks and No thanks Thanks go to – - Treyarch for making this game - Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for giving us the webbed wonder that is Spider-Man - Me for writing this guide - You for reading it (unless of course you’re someone I hate) No Thanks go to – - Activision for lying to Playstation 2 owners once again - Amaze entertainment for thinking that the PS2 can only handle lame rushed 2D games - The long bloody search I had to go through to get a copy of this game Looks like you’re done now, go outside and play.
