Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is nearly here and it is bigger and better than the first game, even before Parker gets his hands on the Symbiote Suit. Peter Parker and Miles Morales continue to lead their secret lives as friendly neighborhood Spider-Men. That is until the Symbiote is thrown into the mix, causing major troubles in the Big Apple.
In this Spider-Man 2 trophy guide, I’ll tell you everything you need to know in order to get the Platinum trophy for Insomniac’s highly anticipated Superhero sequel. It’s going to be a fun ride, much like the two games that came before it.
Update:The official Marvel's Spider-Man 2 trophy list has been released.
There are 42 trophies to collect as the dynamic duo:
1 Platinum trophy

The trophies we are looking at are very similar to the ones we already earned in the first two Spider-Man games. It is a completion-based list that prioritizes collectibles and district completion. I wonder if the police Surveillance Towers need another round of tune-ups.
Like the previous games, you’ll need to get 100% district completion by collecting all items and completing side objectives. In the first game, the collectibles were memorabilia of past misadventures. I expect the same thing to apply here.
The Amazing and To the Max trophies are closely connected. To get to all upgrades in the game, you’ll need to gather credits that can only be acquired by leveling up. I assume that getting Max Level will get you access to every upgrade and move available.
The Fully Loaded Bronze trophy is earned for purchasing all of Spider-Man’s Tech upgrades. It may be the case that you’ll need to collect Tech Parts in order to pay for the upgrades. That’s where the Resourceful Bronze trophy comes in. I don’t know what’s the cap for resources but, depending on how fast you gain, you can go over 10,000 Tech Parts. This ties in with the Co-Signing trophy where you need to Tech Stashes around the city. Probably Oz Corps related.
Suits are an important part of the game. Fortunately for us, we don’t need to buy any suits via DLC. Insomniac has confirmed that there will be a staggering 65 suits available to choose from in the form of Suit Styles. We have also been guaranteed that these suits can be earned after specific conditions have been fulfilled. I think it has something to do with the trophies and with progression itself.
There are a couple of trophies associated with suits. You get the Stylish Bronze trophy for equipping a Suit Style and the Kitted Out Silver trophy for purchasing all available suits in the game.
As far as I know, there are no difficulty-related trophies yet. Marvel’s Spider-Man didn’t get an Ultimate difficulty trophy until New Game+ was added. This may or may not be the case this time around. I wouldn’t be surprised either way. So, for right now, this Trophy Run is going to be quick and easy. Almost relaxing, in fact.
So, apparently, Symbiote Nests are going to be a thing in Spider-Man 2. Most likely an unintended by-product of whatever experiment was conducted on the alien creature. How it looks like remains unknown but I’m guessing it’s going to be similar to something like Rainbow Six Extraction. To get the Exterminator Silver trophy, you need to complete 10 Symbiote Nests.
It would appear that Sandman is part of the game. The Grains of Sand Silver trophy asks you to piece together 14 broken memories. I guess Sandman has been scattered to the 4 winds once again and we’ll need to remind him of who he really is.
Also, Kraven the Hunter is in town. You’ll get The Great Hunt Silver trophy for completing the “Anything Can Be Broken” mission. Ah, spider torture is on the menu, boys. But that’s not all Kraven’s set up Hunter Bases too. You’ll get the Seek and Destroy Silver trophy for completing all 4 of them.
Photo Ops returns to the Spider-Man games. I don’t know how many places are left to photograph but it would seem like the game wants you to get 23 more and unlock the New York, New York Bronze trophy.
In the first game, we got interesting trophies like jumping from the top of Avengers Tower. In this game, it asks us to hit a home run and round the bases at the Big Apple Ballers Stadium. Don’t know how we’ll do it just yet. Do we have to swing at the ball with our fists or is there a special minigame going on? We’ll see.
And finally, we are paying our respects to our dearly beloved once again. In the first game, we were asked to visit Uncle Ben. This time around, we are going to visit Aunt May’s grave to earn the You Know What to Do Bronze trophy. This is especially heavy after everything we’ve seen at the conclusion of the first game.
And that’s everything I have so far for this Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 trophy guide. Now that the official trophy list has been released, I have a clearer picture of the completion run. This is probably going to go the same way as the first game two games in terms of difficulty: as in it won’t be difficult at all. Even at a casual pace, I’d say you can get everything done in less than 20 hours. But don’t quote me on that. The game is significantly larger compared to the previous games. And those hours can potentially double. We’ll have to see.
I will still be updating this article post-launch to further help you along with in-game specifics. Till next time, Trophy hunters.
