Marvel’s Spider-Man Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5

Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the greatest games to ever release on PS4, and now it’s out there for PS5 too, with a whole host of Spider-Man Remastered Trophies! This Spider-Man Trophy Guide will see that you find your way quickly and easily to 100% trophy completion on Spider-Man and all its DLC.

Note that in the PS5 Remastered version of this title, it is possible to sync your save for the PS4 version of the game, and unlock all previously-unlocked trophies immediately. This means that you can turn one Platinum into two in a single action. But why would you not want to experience this game again?

Phase One – Complete the Story

To begin with, you just want to complete the game’s main story campaign by going to yellow waypoints and completing the objectives there.

During this phase of the Spider-Man Trophy Guide, you may complete as much side-content as you like. If you want to collect every collectable as soon as it is available and take the time to do all side-missions (blue waypoints) then you are 100% free to do so. In fact, it may benefit you to do so as you will unlock suits, earn exp, and earn upgrade and crafting resources.

I do strongly recommend that you resolve any Crimes which pop up on the radar as you play the game because farming them can be a real pain.

You can complete the game on any difficulty, as there are no trophies tied to difficulty in the base game. There is a trophy in the New Game + trophy pack which will ask you to play the game on Ultimate, but this difficulty is intended for a player who has already unlocked all of Spidey’s abilities and upgrades, and should be played in New Game Plus only.

Unmissable Story Trophies

The following trophies in this Spider-Man Trophy Guide will be unlocked by simply completing the main mission objectives and don’t require any additional effort, therefore you need not worry about them.

Phase Two – Side-Content Completion

During this phase of the Spider-Man Trophy Guide, you’re going to work your way around the map and collect collectables/complete events until all markers on the map are marked as complete. You may well have done a good deal of this during the first phase but now’s the time to mop up!

Map Completion Trophies

There are several collectable and event types to find in Spider-Man but they’re luckily quite easy to find, courtesy of a map system which will become more populated over time. By the end of the game, you’ll be able to see the locations of all required collectables/events. These markers are as follows:

  • Backpacks
  • Side Missions
  • Landmarks
  • Fisk Hideouts
  • Sable Outposts
  • Demon Warehouses
  • Prisoner Camps
  • Research Stations
  • Pigeons
  • Black Cat Stakeouts
  • Taskmaster Challenges
  • Crimes (randomly occurring events)

Please note that there are optional photo opportunities dotted throughout Manhattan and, while these will unlock a suit for Spider-Man, they’re not needed for any trophy-related reason and can be ignored.

I recommend that whilst you are making your way from collectable-to-collectable, do not fast travel, and resolve any and all crimes which occur in order to avoid having to farm them too much.

Trophy Image
I Heart Manhattan

100% complete all districts

In the game’s Map tab on the menu, you can move your cursor over a district to see the District Completion percentage as well as a checklist of all the side-activities which still need completing in that area.

To unlock this trophy, you will need to complete every task on each checklist to bring the District Completion of all districts up to 100%.

Once you have 100% completion across the entirety of New York, this trophy will unlock.

Throughout this process you will also earn most of the other trophies in this phase of your journey.

Trophy Image
Lost and Found

Collect 5 Backpacks

Trophy Image
Backpacker

Collect all Backpacks

Near the start of the game, during a mission in which you will re-activate sabotaged surveillance towers for Yuri Watanabe, you will be introduced to Backpacks.

The green backpack icons will then be added to the map and look a bit like frogs. From that point on, every time you re-activate a surveillance tower (thus revealing more of the map), the locations of nearby Backpacks will also be revealed on your map.

Just set a waypoint to them in the map or use to quickly scan for those nearby and collect the Backpack at each location with .

The above trophies will unlock upon collecting your 5th and 55th Backpack respectively.

Trophy Image
Cat Prints

Track down Black Cat

Eventually, you will get a message from an old friend; “Felicia”. As part of this mission, you’ll go and find a message that she’s left for you on a rooftop in the city at a spot she was staking out.

You’ll then unlock the other 11 Black Cat Stakeout Collectables which will be added to your map at black cat icons.

At those icons you will need to use a camera she left behind to look for a small black cat toy and then zoom in on it with to complete the activity. These can be easy to spot thanks to the bright glint indicating their location, but sometimes the search area is quite broad.

Once you have completed all 12 Black Cat Stakeouts, you’ll unlock a new sidequest, upon completion of which the trophy will be yours.

Trophy Image
All the King’s Men

Take down each Fisk Hideout

Not too long into the story, Yuri will contact Spider-Man regarding a theory that Fisk goons are operating out of building sites, and she wants you to investigate.

After completing that mission, several Fisk Hideouts will be added to the map in the form of a red crown icon. To unlock this trophy, you will need to visit each location and complete the main objectives.

You do not need to complete all Bonus Objectives, but you will get more Base Tokens for doing so, which are useful for upgrades.

A completed base’s icon will turn grey on the map, once all 6 Fisk Hideout icons are greyed out, the trophy will pop.

Trophy Image
Inner Sanctuary

Take down each Demon Warehouse

Shortly after the start of Chapter 2, you’ll unlock Demon Warehouse Enemy Base side-activities, which are added to the map as red devil icons. To unlock this trophy, you’ll need to visit each location and complete the main objectives.

You don’t need to complete the Bonus Objectives, but will earn more Base Tokens if you do, which are useful for upgrades.

A completed Warehouse’s map icon will turn grey. Once you complete all 5 Warehouses, the trophy will pop.

Trophy Image
Mercenary Tactics

Take down each Sable Outpost

Sable Outpost activities will unlock at the start of Chapter 3, alongside Prisoner Camp activities. Sable Outposts are added to the map as red Sable logos. To unlock this trophy you will need to visit each location and complete the main objectives.

You don’t need to complete the Bonus Objectives, but will earn more Base Tokens if you do, useful for suits and upgrades.

A completed Outpost’s map icon will turn grey. Once you complete all 4 Outposts, the trophy will pop.

Trophy Image
Back in the Slammer

Take down each Prisoner Camp

Prisoner Camp activities will unlock at the start of Chapter 3, alongside Sable Outposts activities. Prisoner Camps are added to the map as red Barbed Wire icons. To unlock this trophy you will need to visit each location and complete the main objectives.

You don’t need to complete the Bonus Objectives, but will earn more Base Tokens if you do, useful for suits and upgrades.

A completed Camp’s map icon will turn grey. Once you complete all 4 Camps, the trophy will pop.

Trophy Image
Ace the Base

Complete all objectives in a base

Throughout the game, you will unlock many “Enemy Base” type events, such as Fisk Hideouts, Demon Warehouses, Sable Outposts, and Prisoner Camps.

The first you will unlock, and the easiest to earn this trophy on, are Fisk Hideouts; red crown icons on the map.

When you arrive at – and attempt to complete – an enemy base side activity, you’ll be given a list of two bonus objectives to complete on the side. At one of these locations, you will need to complete both of these bonus objectives before finishing the activity. If you’re successful in doing so just one time, this trophy will unlock upon completion of the event.

If you fail, it is good to note that you can retry any Enemy Base event by simply revisiting the location and stepping inside the blue circle on the ground.

Trophy Image
Neighborhood Watch

Complete all Faction Crimes in a district

For this trophy you will need to complete every Faction Crime event in a single district. There are multiple enemy Factions in the game which will be revealed over time, along with their crime types.

The easiest district to earn this trophy in, however, is Central Park. The only faction crimes that ever appear there are the Thug Crimes, which are available from very early in the game. This means that all you need to do is swing back and forth across Central Park looking for Thug Crime events until you have completed 5.

With all 5 completed (can be tracked from the map) the trophy will unlock!

Trophy Image
Schooled

Complete all of the Corrupted Student missions

To unlock this trophy, you will need to complete all Side Missions related to ESU students who have been corrupted by Mr. Negative’s abilities. There are 5 of these Side Missions which will start showing up during Chapter 2 of the story.

All 5 of them are started at the Empire State University building and given to you by a student there named Philip Chang. With each one you complete, a new one will become available, allowing you to do these back to back if you so wish.

The trophy will pop on completion of the fifth Philip Chang Side Mission.

Trophy Image
Amazing Coverage

All Surveillance Towers activated

Very near the start of the game, you’ll be given a mission by Yuri Watanabe in which she explains that the city’s surveillance system has been sabotaged and she need your help getting the system back up and running.

You’ll need to interact with the towers in the area and then match the wavelength of the signal in a small mini-game to re-activate the tower. This will give you access to the crime-monitoring system, allowing you to see where crimes are happening, as well as revealing the general area on the map and any side-content available there.

There are typically three of these towers to each district of New York and you will want to make these your top priority upon visiting a new district so that you can eventually have full access to the map and the benefits that come with that.

There are 20 of these to re-activate in total and the trophy will unlock once you’ve activated the 20th and revealed the entire map.

Trophy Image
Short Fuse

Get Spectacular or better in a Taskmaster Bomb Challenge

Some time into Chapter 2, Yuri will call you asking you to investigate a suspicious box. From this mission, you will unlock Challenge Recon Points side-events found at orange circular icons on the map within which you need to complete one of four challenge types.

“Bomb Challenge” is one of those challenge types, in which you must reach and dispose of a number of bombs within a set time limit, earning score based on how quickly and efficiently you do so. To unlock this trophy, you will need to earn a Spectacular rating on just one of these Bomb Challenges, which is the equivalent of earning Silver.

There will be a minimum score you need to earn in order to achieve Spectacular rating, which you can check from the map or on the HUD during a challenge.

The trophy will pop at the end of a Bomb Challenge if you are successful in earning a Spectacular rating.

Trophy Image
Fists of Fury

“Stealth Challenge” is one of those challenge types but unlocks once you have done a few Drone or Bomb Challenges first.

Being caught will end the challenge and be an automatic failure.

To unlock this trophy, you will need to earn a Spectacular rating on just one of these Stealth Challenges, which is the equivalent of earning Silver.

There will be a minimum score you need to earn in order to achieve Spectacular rating, which you can check from the map or on the HUD during a challenge.

Trophy Image
Challenge Finder

Complete every Taskmaster Challenge in the city once

Some time into Chapter 2, Yuri will call you asking you to investigate a suspicious box. From this mission, you will unlock Challenge Recon Points side-events found at orange circular icons on the map within which you need to complete one of four challenge types.

There are 16 of these challenges in total, four of each type; Bomb Challenges, Combat Challenges, Stealth Challenges, and Drone Challenges. You will need to complete them all at least once with any score above “Amazing” rank (which is the lowest/bronze) in order to unlock this trophy.

Trophy Image
Master of Masters

Defeat Taskmaster

Some time into Chapter 2, Yuri will call you asking you to investigate a suspicious box. From this mission, you will unlock Challenge Recon Points side-events found at orange circular icons on the map within which you need to complete one of four challenge types.

Once you’ve completed a handful of Challenge Recon Points, Taskmaster will attack you out of the blue, but will flee after a short combat sequence. The trophy is not tied to this fight, but to the fight you will have with him once all Challenge Recon Points have been completed (regardless of score).

Defeat him in your second fight with him and this trophy will unlock.

Trophy Image
R&D

Complete all Research Stations

Eventually, you will unlock access to Harry Osborne’s research stations which can then be found at purple microscope icons on the map.

At each station, you’ll be given information about the city which can help Spidey to improve conditions for its civilians. Completing these mini-quests will award you with Research Tokens which have a lot of value when it comes to crafting and upgrades.

Note that some of these stations cannot be completed without a particular skill or gadget. Those stations in particular will give you a pop-up message telling you what skill or ability you need until you have acquired the thing necessary to complete it.

Additionally, the final research station won’t appear until you’ve completed all of the others.

Upon completion of said final station, this trophy will unlock.

Trophy Image
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man

Complete all Side Missions

Throughout the game, various Side Missions will appear on the map as you make progress in the main campaign. You can complete these whenever you like, you can even wait until the end of the game.

Some Side Missions are tied to other trophies such as Pigeon Hunter, Schooled, and Tombstone Takedown.

Trophy Image
Tombstone Takedown

Defeat Tombstone

Some time in Chapter 2, following relevant main-story events, you’ll get access to a Side Mission called “Tombstone: On the Move”. This is the first in a chain of Side Missions which will eventually lead to a one-on-one fight with him.

Defeat him during the Side Mission “Let’s get ready to…” and the trophy will unlock.

Trophy Image
Sightseeing

Photograph all Landmarks on the Map

After unlocking Fisk Hideouts via a main mission for Yuri Watanabe, Pete will mention that he needs to upgrade his mapping software and that the best way for him to do that is with images of iconic landmarks for cross-reference. And so that’s what you’ll need to do!

By pressing you can open the game’s camera mode (not photo mode +, two different things). In camera mode, hold to look through the viewfinder and press to take a photo.

You’ll need to visit each of the landmarks now marked on your map with a pale blue building icon and take a photo of them via the above method.

Trophy Image
Pigeon Hunter

Catch all of Howard’s Pigeons

Eventually, you will get a sidequest called “Helping Howard” which you can start from a rooftop near the F.E.A.S.T Center. This sidequest will unlock some events called “Pigeons” which can be found at the pale blue bird icons on the map.

There are 12 in total and upon arriving at each location, you will need to chase a pigeon until you are close enough to catch it with + .

Do this at all 12 locations and the trophy is yours!

Trophy Image
A Bit of a Fixer-Upper

Complete all optional projects in the lab

Within one of the first missions of the game, you’ll visit Doctor Octavius’ lab and be prompted to complete some maintenance on a robotic arm via a minigame. This tutorial is an introduction to lab projects, which you can complete from the tablet devices in the lab.

You may visit the lab at any time by heading the the Octavius Industries logo on the map and entering via the door on the rooftop. The story will also bring you back to this lab at several points.

Over time, as you progress, more and more puzzles will become available on the two tablet devices. Completing all of these puzzles will unlock the trophy.

Bug Notice: Sometimes the trophy won’t pop once you complete all puzzles, but this can be fixed by interacting with both tablets again, prompting the trophy to unlock.

Tip: If, for some reason, you want this trophy to be even easier than it already is, you can change the gameplay settings and set”Option to Skip Puzzles” to “On”. This will give you the ability to skip and auto-complete any one of these puzzles. Doing so will not void the trophy.

Misc Map Location Trophies

These next few trophies in this Spider-Man Trophy Guide don’t actually have markers on the map to indicate their location, but below I’ll help you locate the objective and complete it for the required trophy.

Trophy Image
With Great Power…

Pay respects at Ben Parker’s grave

For this trophy, head up to the very north-west corner of the map, where you’ll find a church and some large church grounds. This is actually a graveyard, and in order to earn the trophy you need to find a specific grave at the location shown below.

If you’re struggling to find it, note that you can press and the grave will glow yellow to indicate you can interact with it.

Once you find it, press on it and the trophy will pop after a short moment of dialogue.

Trophy Image
Hero for Higher

Perch atop Avengers Tower

This trophy is quite simple. First, locate the Avengers Tower in the Upper East Side district. It’s very hard to miss, given the enormous “A” symbol on the side, and the fact that it is the tallest building in the city.

Next, climb to the very top of the building. You fill find that the building has two tips due to a two-pronged design. Head to the top of either of these points and you will find two small red lights which keep aeroplanes from crashing into the tower accidentally at night.

Stand on any of these small red lights and Peter will adopt a perched pose, thus unlocking the trophy.

Phase Three – Miscellaneous Cleanup

With the game’s story experienced, and every activity on the map complete, all that remains in this Spider-Man Trophy Guide is for you to cross off the last few items from the trophy list and secure your Platinum…

Character Progression Trophies

Trophy Image
King of Swing

Complete a level 1 Traversal Benchmark

Trophy Image
And Stay Down!

Complete a level 1 Combat Benchmark

In the menu, you’ll notice there is a tab at the top between “Collections” and “Characters” titled “Benchmarks”.

Use / to navigate to the Benchmarks tab where you will see many milestones as well as your progress towards them. Benchmarks with a blue icon are traversal benchmarks and those with a green icon are combat benchmarks.

To unlock these trophies you will need to fill the progress bar on any blue traversal benchmark, and any green combat benchmark, for the first time by completing the goal in the benchmark’s description.

As many of these are related to simple and common mechanics, you’re very likely to unlock both of these trophies naturally, and quite early in the game too.

Trophy Image
The Scientific Method

Craft your first Upgrade

Trophy Image
Science FTW!

Craft 15 Upgrades

The above trophies are tied to upgrade crafting. Once you unlock the “Gadgets” tab of the menu, you can select any gadget to view the available upgrades.

Here, you can use the tokens you’ve earned from side-content to craft upgrades. Upon crafting your first upgrade, “The Scientific Method” will unlock.

Do this a further 14 times and “Science FTW!” will unlock too.

Trophy Image
Snappy Dresser

Wear 5 new Spider-Suits

Though the trophy description says “wear”, you simply need to unlock 5 new Spider-Man suits, as they will be auto-equipped once unlocked.

It seems, however, that DLC costumes and those added since the game’s original PS4 release don’t apply for this trophy and you’ll need to unlock 5 suits which were actually part of the base game.

Considering your goal should be to unlock all suits at some point, just unlock any suit you can once it is available and you have the required tokens and the trophy will pop along the way to unlocking “A Suit For All Seasons“.

Trophy Image
A Suit For All Seasons

Purchase all Suits

For this trophy you will need to purchase all the suits from the base game. DLC suits and those added post-launch do not count for this trophy. Most suits will unlock over time as you level up but others are tied to side-activity completion, such as completing every Black Cat Stakeout.

Once a suit is unlocked, you’ll then need to purchase it from the Suits tab in the menu using tokens you earn from side-activities. Clearly, it is better to focus on unlocking I Heart Manhattan first, as that trophy will be unlocked once you have 100% on all side-activities, ensuring you have the resources and unlock requirements in order to achieve this trophy.

The trophy should unlock once you have the following suits:

  • Advanced Suit
  • Classic Suit (Damaged)
  • Classic Suit
  • Noir Suit
  • Scarlet Spider Suit
  • Spider-Armor – MK II Suit
  • Secret War Suit
  • Stark Suit
  • Negative Suit
  • Electrically Insulated Suit
  • Spider-Punk
  • Wrestler Suit
  • Fear Itself Suit
  • Stealth “Big Time” Suit
  • Spider Armor – MK III Suit
  • Spider-Man 2099 Black Suit
  • Iron Spider Suit
  • Velocity Suit
  • Spider Armor – MK IV Suit
  • Spirit Spider
  • Spider-Man 2099 White Suit
  • Vintage Comic Book Suit
  • Last Stand Suit
  • Homemade Suit
  • Dark Suit
Trophy Image
Superior Spider-Man

Unlock all Skills

To unlock this trophy you will need to reach max level (50) and use all 50 Skill Points to purchase every skill from the “Skills” tab in the menu.

The trophy will pop upon purchase of the final skill.

Misc Combat Trophies

Trophy Image
Hug It Out

Knock together 10 pairs of enemies with Trip Mines

For this trophy you will first need to unlock the Trip Mine gadget via story progression in Chapter 2.

The Trip Mine can be planted on any surface and when an enemy passes through its blue laser, it will web them up and attach them to the same surface.

However, you can also plant a Trip Mine on an enemy, by aiming at one with and firing the Trip Mine at them with . Then, if the laser detects a wall, floor, or another enemy, it will web the target onto that surface.

For this trophy, you will need to plant Trip Mines onto enemies and have them get webbed to another enemy. This is particularly easy in Enemy Base activities because you will often find two enemies stood talking to each other. You can just attach the Trip Mine to the front of one of the two enemies and have them get webbed together.

You can also attach the Trip Mine to enemies at the back of a group, as they’re most likely to activate the Trip Wire on one of the allies ahead of them, causing them to be webbed together.

Once you’ve successfully pulled two enemies into each other with the Trip Mine 10 times, the trophy will pop.

Trophy Image
Spider-Sensible

Perfect Dodge 10 attacks

In Marvel’s Spider-Man, when an attack is about to hit Peter, his Spider-Sense will trigger, indicated by a white flash above his head. By pressing while this flash is there, you can dodge an incoming attack.

However, if you wait until the very last second, the white flash will turn blue. Pressing during this brief window will trigger a perfect dodge, which typically results in a counter-attack of some sort.

You will get more used to the timing for this over time until you’re doing it almost every time, meaning this trophy will very likely occur naturally. You simply need to execute a perfect dodge 10 times.

The Defender skill “Dodge Window” will help a lot with unlocking this trophy as it will increase the amount of time within which you can execute a perfect dodge.

Trophy Image
Overdrive

Complete 10 Vehicle Takedowns

When you’re working through the side-activities in the game, and completing Crime activites, many of these will involve stopping a vehicle. This will happen more commonly once Sable and Prisoner Crimes are available.

To unlock this trophy you will need to successfully complete 10 of these vehicle-combat sequences. A few of these sequences will occur as part of the story or side-missions but the majority will come from Crime side-activities.

You’ll unlock this naturally whilst working towards I Heart Manhattan.

Trophy Image
Arachnophobia

Perform 75 Stealth Takedowns

While unnoticed by enemies you may notice they have a coloured indicator over the center of their body when you look at them. This is to indicate that you can initiate a stealth takedown on that person; purple for and green for .

With a takedown, you will go to the enemy and take them out in a rather loud manner. Therefore takedowns, in which you bring the enemy to you, and web them up silently, are better if you intend to remain unnoticed.

Pressing to scan an enemy while one of these indicators is visible during stealth will bring up a small tag indicating whether or not it is safe to perform a stealth takedown on that person and remain undetected afterwards.

In order to unlock this trophy, you will need to perform 75 stealth takedowns, which isn’t as many as it seems given how useful it is to perform them throughout most of the game.

Misc Exploration Trophies

Trophy Image
Wing It

Traverse across the city rooftops

To unlock this trophy, you need to disturb 500 groups of pigeons while swinging around New York.

Pigeon flocks are very common in the game and are found on almost every rooftop. Simply approaching or swinging close to a flock of pigeons will cause them to scatter and it will happen so frequently (especially if you swing close to, or run across rooftops a lot) that the trophy should pop through natural gameplay.

If not; swing around some more, have some fun exploring the city and it will happen before you know it.

Trophy Image
Born to Ride

Ride the Subway 5 times

In Marvel’s Spider-Man, you can fast-travel across the city of New York by holding over a fast-travel icon in the map once the ability to do so has been unlocked.

Spidey will fast-travel via the subway. Do this 5 times (back-to-back if you want) and the trophy will pop when you fast travel for the 5th time.

If you’re playing the PS5 Remaster, this will take a hilariously short amount of time as fast-travelling is near-instant.

Trophy Image
Sticky and Tricky

Chain 4 unique tricks before landing

While in the air, you can press while pushing in any direction to perform a trick. The trick is different depending on the direction you push .

For this trophy, you need to perform 4 different tricks in a single freefall. This is quite simple, just find a tall building like the Empire State or Avengers Tower and jump from the top, as you fall, push repeatedly while moving in multiple different directions to pull off a multitude of tricks.

The trophy will unlock upon triggering your fourth trick without touching the ground.

Trophy Image
Spider-Man About Town

Greet 10 citizens

If you walk around on the street in this game, you’ll hear various dialogue from the people of New York; some good, some bad.

Occasionally, a fan will want to high five you, which will be indicated by a white circle above their head. Approach this person and the circle will change to a button prompt. Press triangle to initiate a short animation where Spidey greets the fan.

Alternatively, you can just approach a civilian and press . Spidey will greet them instead of punching them.

Do this 10 times in total and the trophy will pop upon the 10th interaction.

Max out one Benchmark type

In the menu, under the Benchmarks tab, you can find your progress on many different benchmarks which you have likely looked at for the King of Swing and And Stay Down… trophies.

Just like those two trophies, you will need to max out progress on one of these Benchmarks by reaching the targets listed. However, for this trophy you will need to max out a single Benchmark 3 times, completed the tier III requirements.

Once a benchmark is fully maxed out at tier III, its icon will change to a small check mark. But you’ll also earn this trophy at that point.

Earn Ultimate on a Taskmaster Challenge

Achieve Ultimate on a Taskmaster Challenge

During Phase Two of your trophy journey, when completing the side-activities, you needed to complete some Taskmaster Challenges and earn Spectacular (Silver) ratings for all 4 different types, earning Short Fuse, Fists of Fury, Ninja, and Spy Hunter.

For this trophy you’ll need to earn Ultimate (Gold) on at least one of those challenges.

In my opinion, doing this on Combat Challenges is the easiest, especially towards the end of the game when you have all your combat skills and abilities. Saying that, I did actually achieve this on a Bomb Challenge.

Simply complete a challenge while achieving the highest completion goal and this trophy will unlock.

Fully Upgrade all Gadgets

Max out all Gadgets

In the “Gadgets” tab of the menu you can upgrade gadgets by hovering over them with the cursor, moving it over one of their upgrades, and purchasing it by holding . You’ll obviously need enough resources to do this, though.

Having enough resources will mean needing to complete every single side-activity in the game, however, you’ll also need to complete all Enemy Base and Taskmaster Challenge bonus objectives. Well, if you don’t play the DLC that is.

Through the DLC, you’ll have much more opportunity to collect more Base tokens from new Enemy Bases, as well as Challenge Tokens from the (frankly, awful) Screwball Challenges.

Once you’ve purchased every upgrade for all gadgets, the trophy will pop.

Achieve a 100-hit Combo and Complete a Base Without Getting Hit

The last two trophies are quite easy to farm in the first Fisk Hideout Enemy Base activity, and you can re-attempt it by visiting the location and entering the blue circle on the ground.

So Many Hits…

Achieve a combo of 100

For this trophy, you will need to reach a 100-hit combo and I would recommend having the difficulty on at least Neighbourhood or higher, as enemies will go down way too easily on Friendly Neighbourhood difficulty.

Obviously, keeping a combo means not getting hit, but you can actually equip a suit mod called Bio Mesh which will make it so that you can take a hit or two without losing your combo meter.

This ability makes the trophy a breeze!

Of course, plenty of players will achieve this trophy naturally through normal gameplay so there’s no need to do this unless you need to farm the trophy.

Complete any Enemy Base without taking damage

This trophy is a little more difficult as it asks you to complete an Enemy Base activity without getting hit at all. If you achieve So Many Hits… legitimately, without needing the Bio Mesh suit mod, chances are you’ll achieve this trophy in the same run.

You basically need to pay attention to your spider-sense and dodge whenever there is danger. Keep practicing the base until you get this down.

Playing on Friendly Neighbourhood difficulty makes this a lot easier as enemies will go down in just 2-3 hits. You can also use the Suit Ability “Equaliser” which you’ll get at the end of the game. This ability will make enemies die in a single hit when active. This will also make you die in one hit, but the goal is not to get hit anyway.

Another useful skill for this is the “Charged Outer Mesh” suit mod. This will electrocute enemies when they hit you. It won’t help you achieve the trophy, but it will help you better identify when someone has successfully landed a hit on you, so you can restart the activity without wasting further time and you won’t find yourself frustrated in not knowing whether there’s a glitch or something.

Additionally, taking out as many enemies as possible in stealth at the start of the activity will make things easier. Use gadgets, too, such as the tripwire or Impact Web which can be useful one-hit-KO attacks.

Once you successfully defeat the final enemy of the last wave without getting hit once, this trophy will pop.
