Welcome to the Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018) PS4 Trophy Guide!Developed by Insomniac Games–the makers of Spyro the Dragon, Resistance, Ratchet & Clank – and published by Sony exclusively on PS4, this Spider-Man game will make trophy hunters happy with a list of unmissable and fairly easy trophies. The entire list is completion-based. One portion of the trophies is for completing the story, the other portion for doing all side missions and collectibles. Everything is marked on the map so you won’t be needing a collectible guide this time. The way it works is that you go to Radio Towers, and activating them reveals all collectibles in the surrounding areas. More collectible types and suits become available gradually as you progress the story. If something is locked it means you need to play more of the story. After the story you can free-roam around the map to do anything you still need, thus nothing is missable. You can tackle the trophies in any order you like so the below Roadmap is just what I did but you can mix things up and work on collectibles as you play, if you want.
Just enjoy the game any way you see fit. Nothing is missable and you can do everything in whatever order you like. After the story there’s still free-roam to mop up what you need. Focusing on nothing but the story, a playthrough will last 8-10 hours. It doesn’t matter what difficulty you pick, you can do it all on easy if you wish. There are no difficulty-related trophies.
The reason you should focus on story first is that many of the collectibles and suits are locked behind story progress. To make sure you have access to everything and reduce the running-around-the-map, it’s best to unlock all collectible types first (via story progress) and then clear them out district by district.Everything that is locked is tied to Story Progress, Side Missions and Collectibles. Use the Radio Towers that are marked on the map by default to reveal all Collectible Locations.
Warning:don’t spend your challenge Tokens & Base Tokens yet! Keep them all until after the story! Then you can make a manual save> buy 15 upgrades> reload save to get tokens back> buy all suits.
This is important because you can only get a maximum of6 tokens per challenge but that would require you to perform really well and get a gold rating.To get all trophies you only need 1-3 Tokens per challenge, if you don’t waste any (bronze or silver rating does suffice). That means you can get away with mediocre scores. If you were to overspend your Tokens on stuff you don’t need, then you’d have to go the extra mile and get perfect scores on each challenge for more tokens, which will ramp up the platinum difficulty significantly.
Most of your time will go into the collectible cleanup. There are 358 Collectibles spread across 15 categories. Refer to the trophy “I Heart Manhattan” for more info on all of them. Theyall get marked on the map when you use the radio towers (which are shown on the map by default).
Now that you’re done with the story you will have access to everything. You might still be missing the collectible type “Pigeons” which you unlock from Side Mission “Helping Howard” in Chinatown. The best way is to do all side missions first and then the collectibles, that’s because you get extra gadgets and the aforementioned collectible type from the side missions.
Lastly, do all of the collectibles in all districts. You must achieve 100% completion in all districts, that means all Crimes too. The crimes pop up every 300-1000 meters traveled within a district. They are randomly generated, meaning they don’t have fixed positions and will always spawn near you. There are 4 types: Thugs, Demons, Prisoners, Sable — the good news is that you won’t get repeats of the same type once you’ve completed all in the district. Then only events of the remaining types will spawn. After clearing all crimes in a district they will keep spawning infinitely in case you need more Crime Tokens.
As you do the collectibles, aim to get silver in all challenges (=3 Challenge Tokens) and do all tasks in the Bases (=3 Base Tokens). For crimes aim to complete at least 1 requirement (=2 Crime Tokens). These 3 types of tokens are affected by your performance.
There are5 miscellaneous trophies: paying respect at Ben Parker’s Grave, performing 4 air tricks, climbing atop the Avengers Tower, knock 10 pairs of enemies together with trip mines, complete all optional projects in the lab.
Those are the only things you may not have gotten through natural progression yet. They are all very quick to do in a matter of minutes. Refer to the trophy guide below for their specifics and the Spider-Man Platinum will be yours.
Collect all Trophies
Unlock all Skills
100% complete all districts
To get 100% completion you must do all side missions and collectibles in each district. They all get marked on the map automatically when you use the Surveillance Towers. These Towers are marked on the map by default after the first few missions. Therefore, no collectible guide is needed. Simply use the towers to reveal all collectibles. You can still grab everything after the story in free-roam. Nothing is missable.
- There are 9 Districts total: Financial District, Chinatown, Greenwich, Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown, Upper West Side, Central Park, Upper East Side, Harlem
- There are 358 Collectibles / Side Activities in total, divided into 15 categories.
Collectible Types Explained:
= 55 Backpacks: Go near them and press to pick them up.
= 16 Side Missions: More of them unlock throughout the story and some are part of quest lines, meaning you must complete some side missions to unlock the rest. The only hard ones that don’t have waypoint markers areCollege Buddies,Tick Tock,Over His Head,A Matter of Debate,Home Team Advantage. All the others guide you through the mission with waypoints.
= 47 Landmarks: Get the landmark in frame and press to pull outcamera, to aim it at the landmark, to snap a photo.
= 6 Fisk Hideouts: Defeat all enemies in the hideouts. For bonus tokens, complete the displayed tasks.
= 5 Demon Warehouses:Defeat all enemies in the warehouses. For bonus tokens, complete the displayed tasks.
= 4 Sable Outposts:Defeat all enemies in the outposts. For bonus tokens, complete the displayed tasks.
= 4 Prisoner Camps:Defeat all enemies in the camps. For bonus tokens, complete the displayed tasks.
= 17 Research Stations: They are uniquemini quests. Enter the research stations and interact with the display inside, then it tells you what the task is and how to complete it (generally with waypoints).The Last Research Station in Upper West Side only unlocks after completing all other Research Stations. Also, make sure they got a green checkmark on the map. If you only visited them(but haven’t completed)they will show two green arrows for fast travel but not the green checkmark. Research Stations can also be tracked via the Missions Menu.
= 11 Black Cat Stakeouts: These require you to photograph hidden cat dolls and are the only “tricky” collectible. For their locations refer tofor avideo+ screenshots.
= 12 Pigeons: To unlock Pigeons you must do Howard’s side mission “Helping Howard” in Chinatown. Then you must follow them in the air and press + to grab them.
= 16 Taskmaster Challenges: There are 4 types of challenges — Combat, Stealth, Bomb, Drone. Combat Challenges require you to defeat all enemies as fast as possible, Stealth requires you to defeat all enemies quickly without being seen, Bomb is about defusing bombs as quickly as you can, and Drone is about following a drone and hitting waypoints as fast as possible. You don’t need to get thehighscores. For 100%completionyou only need the lowest acceptable score for the bronze requirement. In order to unlock allsuitsyou should aim for silver though to unlock3 tokens per challenge (you can still get enough tokens with a few bronze scores and no gold scores). After clearing all challenges, the Taskmaster boss will show up and fight you (note: if you lose, just replay a challenge and he will fight you again).
= 45 Thug Crimes: See Sable Crimes.
= 40 Demon Crimes:See Sable Crimes.
= 40 Prisoner Crimes:See Sable Crimes.
= 40 SableCrimes: Crimes are randomly generated events that pop up every 300-1000 meters/yards traveled within a district (roughly every 30-60 seconds). Just swing up and down a district and they will show up. It doesn’t matter if you already cleared the enemy bases in the district, this doesn’t impact spawn rate of crimes at all. Once you’ve done 5 crimes of a type, only crimes of the other types will spawn. This means you don’t get duplicates of the same faction. After all crimes of all factions are done, more crimes will keep spawning in case you need more Crime Tokens for upgrades.
After finishing all 16 Taskmaster Challenges, he will show up and fight you. You don’t need to reach gold in any of the challenges, just the bare minimum score for bronze. Challenges are a late-game unlock, they become available as you progress through the story.Alsosee trophy “I Heart Manhattan” for more info on the challenge types.
Note: If you lose the match against Taskmaster, just replay another challenge and he will fight you again.
Collect all Backpacks
Track down Black Cat
See trophy “I Heart Manhattan” (Do the 11Black Cat Stakeoutsand the resulting mission “Cat’s Cradle”).
Take down each Demon Warehouse
Take down each Fisk Hideout
Take down each Sable Outpost
Take down each Prisoner Camp
Complete all Faction Crimes in a district
Purchase all Suits
There are 27 wearable Suits in Marvel’s Spider-Man. For this trophy only 23/27 are needed, the ones for completing all districts 100%, doing all Black Cat Stakeouts and finding all Backpacks are not required!
All suitsbecome available from story missions, side missions, and collectibles. On your way to the trophy “I Heart Manhattan” (100% completion), you willget access tothem all automatically. Each suit costs Tokens which you get from collectibles and challenges.
It’s best to save up your Tokens until you’ve gotenoughfor all Suits. Make a manual Save, buy all Suits, reload Save, now buy the 15 gadget upgrades for trophy “Science FTW!”.If youwaste tokens on Gadget Upgrades & Suit Mods, you may have to replay a lot of challenges and bases to get enough Tokens forthe Suits. So don’t buy the Gadget Upgrades and Suit Mods, or at least only the cheap and most useful ones. There are enough Tokens in the game to buy all Suits and Upgrades on the same save but it would require you to getthe gold highscore in each challenge which makes this a whole lot harder. The game is easy enough to beat without upgrades, better keep your Tokens till the end.
To buy all Suits you need the following amount of Tokens:16 Backpack Tokens, 60 Crime Tokens, 33 Base Tokens, 15 Landmark Tokens, 16 Research Tokens, 39 Challenge Tokens.

Complete all of the Corrupted Student missions
What makes these quests special is that all you have to go on is a picture of the location you must find, it won’t get marked on the map automatically. Below are walkthroughs for each quest with their starting points and locations where you will find the student:
- College Buddies
- Tick Tock
- Over His Head
- A Matter of Debate
- Home Team Advantage
All Surveillance Towers activated
Get Spectacular or better in a Taskmaster Bomb Challenge
Get Spectacular or better in a Taskmaster Combat Challenge
Get Spectacular or better in a Taskmaster Stealth Challenge
Get Spectacular or better in a Taskmaster Drone Challenge
There are 4 types of challenges:
- Bomb Challenges: Disable all bombs as fast as possible. Press + near the bomb to throw it in the air and repeatedly tap to shoot it with webs in midair.
- Combat Challenges: Defeat waves of enemies as quickly as possible.
- Stealth Challenges: Defeat all enemies as quickly as possible without being seen.
- Drone Challenges: Follow a drone and fly through the bluegoals it leaves behind.
Each challenge has 3 reward tiers, depending on your score (from worst to best): Amazing, Spectacular, Ultimate.
Spectacular which you need for the 4 challenge trophies is right in the middle and very doable within 1-2 tries. Given the fact that you must do all challenges for 100% completion, the challenge trophies will all come naturally along the way. It’s truly not hard at all, the score requirements are very forgiving and you can repeat the challenges as often as you like. Once completed they remain on the map and can be replayed. If you struggle with one challenge, move on to the next – there are multiple of each type.
Complete every Taskmaster Challenge in the city once
Complete all Research Stations
Complete Act 1
Complete Act 2
Complete Act 3
Craft 15 Upgrades
It’s advisable that you save up your Tokens until you can afford 15 Upgrades. Then make a manual Save Game, buy 15 for the trophy, reload Save Game to get Tokens back. Now you can reuse those tokens to buy all Suits for the trophy “A Suit For All Seasons”.
Most important are the Challenge Tokens and Base Tokens, don’t waste those on Gadget Upgrades until you have the trophy for buying all Suits.
Fisk is the first boss fight and unmissable as part of the story.
When the fight starts there are two turrets in the room. Use + to destroy them. In the nextphaseyou must shoot webs at Fisk to stun him, then perform a combo and repeat. When he calls his henchmen, defeat them first and then shoot webs at Fisk again and attack.
This unlocks during your third and final combat encounter with Li, in Act 3 near the end of the story. In the last Li fight,you mustdodge his attacks until he gets tired. Then you can perform combos on him. Just keep dodging around him and attack when the button prompt shows up. In the lastphasehe will summon a demon, but this too is easy to dodge. The same tactic applies, dodge until he and his demon get tired and then you can attack. You may also throw objects at him with + to speed up the process and make him get tired quicker.
Defeat Electro and Vulture
Electro and Vulture are the 4th boss fight and unmissable as part of the story.
This is a midair combat against two bosses at the same time. To defeat Electro, use the web-shooters to stun him and perform combos. When he uses the power generators to send out pillars of energy, destroy the generators with your web-shooter. This will weaken Electro. Rinse and repeat, don’t forget to web him when possible.
Vulture joins the fight shortly after Electro has taken his first big beating from you. Vulture can easily be dodged and is then open for a follow-up. You can also stun him with web-shooters and follow up with a combo.
Defeat Scorpion and Rhino
Scorpion and Rhinoare the 5th boss fight and unmissable as part of the story.
The fight starts out with Rhino. Lure him to areas withdestructiblesthat you can use against him. For example, stand in front of a container to make him charge at it, then dodge away and pull down + the container onto him. Then he’s stunned and can be attacked. There are many objects around the area that can be used against Rhino.
Scorpion joins the fight shortly after Rhino takes damage. It’s best to focus on Scorpion first as he has very little health and is the more annoying one with his ranged attacks. If you’re lucky Rhino will ram him for you and thus cause heavy damage. You can use web-shooters against Scorpion and follow up with a combo. Once Scorpion is down it’s back to the original tactic of letting Rhino ram into objects that you can use against him. Alone he doesn’t pose much of a threat.
Tombstone is an optional boss at the end of a 3-part side quest line. You must play the following 3 side missions and will face Tombstone at the end:
- Tombstone: On the Move
- Tombstone: What’s He Building in There…
- Tombstone: Let’s Get Ready To…
The first quest (On the Move) starts in the Greenwich district in front of Octavius Industries’ Lab. It unlocks as you progress through the story and can still be played after the story, so just keep playing until it becomes available. The 3 quests are very easy and short and have waypoint markers for everything.
In the actual Tombstonefightyou must attack him until his henchmen show up. Defeat those and then attack Tombstone. After landing a few combos, Spider-Man uses thecounter-drug on Tombstone. This will take his powers away and makes him vulnerable. Throw the objects in the room at him, then he’s stunned and can be attacked.
Shockeris the 2nd boss fight and unmissable as part of the story.
In the firstphaseyou must dodge Shocker’s attacks until he uses a blast attack that hits everything around him. After he uses that move his shield will go down and he’s vulnerable for a few seconds. Quickly throw an objectwith + and follow up with a combo.
In the 2ndphaseit’s essentially the same but he learns a new shockwave move. Keep dodging until he uses that move, thenjump + to a safe place at the walls. Get behind Shocker while he uses his shockwave move andthrowan object at him. Now he’s stunned and can be attacked.
In the third phase, he is trapped below a chandelier. Dodge a few times until he stops attacking to recharge. This gives you an opening to pull + the pieces of the chandelier. Repeat until the chandelier is destroyed and falls onto Shocker.
Traverse across the city rooftops
*Before Patch 1.03 the trophy was called “Bird Bane” – “Disturb 500 flocks of pigeons”.They changed the wording but the requirement is still the same and they kept the pigeon on the trophy icon.

Catch all of Howard’s Pigeons
Knock together 10 pairs of enemies with Trip Mines
You unlock Trip Mines automatically in Act 2, Main Mission “Dual Purpose”. So first you have to reach this mission and it will unlock the Tripe Mine Gadget.
The fastest way to farm this is in the Fisk Hideout of Harlem (if it has already been completed you can replay it at any time by returning to the hideout). There are multiple groups of enemies standing close together. Shoot a Trip Mine at one enemy that’s facing another. The trip mine will cause them to get knocked together. Click “Restart Checkpoint” to repeat and farm 10 pairs. If you run out of Trip Mines, use the Anti-Ock Suit’s ability “Resupply”. It instantly recharges your Trip Mines when they’re the actively selected gadget (it’s the suit you get for completing the story). You can farm 2-3 pairs per try. With checkpointrestartyou will be done in 1-2 minutes.
Complete all Side Missions
Craft your first Upgrade
Perfect Dodge 10 attacks
Complete 10 Vehicle Takedowns
Pay respects at Ben Parker’s grave
Ben Parker’s grave is at the cemetery in the north-west (top left) corner of Harlem. When you go there, press to highlight the grave.
Perch atop Avengers Tower
Avengers Tower is the tallest building in the game, found in the middle of the “Upper East Side” district. It has a big “A” at its top and well… it stands out because of its size, would be hard to overlook. Climb to the top and you’ll find 2 red lights on the tower. Climb onto the red lights to pop the trophy. This is the highest point in the game.
You must also have uncovered the Upper East Side district by using the Radio Towers there, otherwise the trophy won’t unlock.
Photograph all Landmarks on the Map
Ride the Subway 5 times
Chain 4 unique tricks before landing
Firstyou must buy the skill “Air Tricks” from the Webslinger skill tree. Now go to the tallest building you can find, jump off and hold + , press to perform 4 unique tricks before you land. Do one rotation of each trick, they only last 1 second. From the tallest buildings in thegameyou have more than enough time before hitting the ground.
Wear 5 new Spider-Suits
Perform 75 Stealth Takedowns
If you’ve 100% completed the game and are still missing stealth takedowns you can simply replay the stealth challenges. Repeat them over and over again until the trophy pops.
Collect 5 Backpacks
Greet 10 citizens
Alternatively, sometimes you will notice people with a button prompt above their head but this is rare. For them you can do a special greeting and these also count towards the trophy.
Collect a Black Cat collectible
Complete all optional projects in the lab
They are little puzzles. If you get stuck, refer to this guide with all solutions:Marvel’s Spider-Man – All Lab Project Solutions.
Complete all objectives in a base
Luckily, you can replay any and all bases after they have been captured. The completed bases are greyed out on the map but still visible. Mark them on the map and you’ll find a blue circle in the base from which it can bereplayed. Therefore, this is not missable and you can keep retrying. In all likelihood, you will get this naturallybecause there are many bases in the game needed for 100% completion. I got it in my first base without even trying.
