Welcome to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 achievement guide. This is a nice little movie tie-in and quite an easy game to complete. Like any other Spider-Man games there are some collectables to find, but not as many as the first Amazing Spider-Man game. Everything is pretty straight forward, but a bit of grinding out XP will be required for the completion.
For starters I want to highly recommend that you switch suits once the one you’re wearing is maxed out. This will save you a lot of time when you go for the grind of maxing out all the suits. Keeping your Hero status up will get you more XP.
Start out Super Hero difficulty. The game isn’t all that hard so you might as well only do one playthrough. Just don’t change the difficulty until AFTER you’ve completed the story. There are only 14 main missions, straight forward and fairly short.
There aren’t nearly as many collectables as the first Amazing Spider-Man game, and even then you don’t necessarily have to collect them all. There are only 5 within story missions and 5 within the open city for the “Lover” achievement. The only other collectable you’ll need are the comic pages. There are 300 but you’ll only need 285 for the achievement. Once you fully upgrade Spider Sense these will show up on your mini map and you’ll be able to find them easier while in Spider Sense.
You can do side missions in between story missions or after you complete story mode. If you’re having trouble with any of the side missions, save them after you complete story mode. You can lower the difficulty and it will not affect any of the side mission achievements. There are some side missions that aren’t linked to achievements and I’d advise to just stay away from them as they don’t really offer much XP. The ones you’ll want to do are:
Building on Fire Situations: 10
Deadlock Situations: 10
Petty Crime Situations: 10
Rescue Situations: 10
Combat Challenges: All 12 (found in the comic shop)
Hideouts: All 5
Photo Investigations: All 30
Races: All 15
Maxing Out All Suits
This is really tedious as you won’t even have half of the suits upgraded once you’re done with the story and the required side missions. Luckily you can load up the last chapter and grind out the needed XP. See “Ultimate Spider-Man” for the specific details.
The game is fairly easy and quite fun. Just remember to change suits once you max one out, try to keep your Hero status up, and do NOT change the difficulty until after you’ve completed story mode.
Complete the game on Human difficulty
See “Super Hero”
Complete the game on Hero difficulty
See “Super Hero”
Complete the game on Super Hero difficulty
If you start and complete the game on Super Hero difficulty, the two lower difficulty achievements will stack also. You’ll also earn “Now It Is Over” for defeating the final boss.
You cannot lower the difficulty mid-game and change it back again to earn the higher level difficulty achievements. The game will warn you of this if you try to change the difficulty.
Collect all Spider-Man comic books
There are 300 comic pages in the game, but you only need to find 285 to complete all the comic books. This may seem like a lot, but most are in the open on top of buildings, are easier to see at night, and once you’ve fully upgraded Spider-Sense these will show up on the mini map.
Retrieve all parts of Black Cat’s journal
There are only 10 parts you’ll need to find: 5 within story missions and 5 within the open city. See the video below for their locations.
Retrieve all parts of Menken’s journal
Retrieve all parts of Detective’s journal
I’m on a Roll
Achieve a combo streak of 42
If you’re in an area with a lot of enemies and you mind your dodges, this should come within the story. An easy way that I found was during a petty crimes task. I defeated all of the enemies but one and tapped for a Web-Strike. Wait a bit and do another Web-Strike. Rinse and repeat. You can keep doing this until you get to 42 without finishing off the enemy. I did this before I completely upgraded the Web-Strike, so it’s not certain if that has any affect or not.
Perform 15 signature moves
See “Master of the Web”
Destroy 20 body armors
This will come naturally through story progression. Using the ionic web is the fastest way to destroy armor. Just tap a few times and the armor will deteriorate.
Know Your Enemies
Unlock all character bios
This is basically story-related. Once the game is over and after the credits have rolled, you’ll get another cut scene. After the cut scene is over the achievement will pop.
This achievement has been reported to be glitchy. I recommend NOT skipping the credits and NOT skipping the after-credits cut scene to ensure it’ll pop once you continue the game.
Complete all photo challenges
There are 30 Photo Investigations. These are extremely easy and quick to complete and there are only 3 types of photo challenges that you’ll need to photograph and are associated with 3 other achievements.
1. “Special Agent” – there will be two guys in suits you’ll need to photograph
2. “Investigator” – there will be a cop with a laptop, just photograph the laptop
3. “Hunter of Killers” – there will be a cop over a body, you’ll need to find Cletus Kasady’s initals “C.K.” on a nearby wall to photograph
All Tied Up
Defeat 50 enemies by performing stealth takedowns
A stealth takedown is performed by tapping when close enough to an enemy without then noticing you. They’ll have a purple glow when they are able to be stealthly taken down. Using only stealth takendowns on the hideouts are basically required, so you should get these by completing the hideouts if you don’t use them anywhere else during the story.
Disarm 50 enemies
Pretty simple, just tap to disarm an enemy with a weapon. Just do this to 50 enemies with weapons and the achievement is yours.
Unlock all suits
There are 13 suits in total you’ll need for this achievement.
3 suits are given to you at the start of the game.
2 suits are story-related and are given to you for defeating Black Cat and Carnage.
6 suits are awarded for completing the story hideout and the 5 optional hideouts.
1 suit is awarded for completing all 15 races.
1 suit is awarded for completing all 12 combat challenges.
You will also earn the “State of the Art” achievement for collecting all the concept art while completing these. You’ll unlock all of the concept art by completing 11 races and 11 combat challenges.
Complete all hideouts
These will show up as a purple eye icon on the map. There are only 5 hideouts and are fairly simple to complete. I recommend being stealthy and work on your stealth takedowns. If you’re awareness bar fills you’ll fail and have to restart.
Complete all combat challenges
Once you get to the comic book store with Stan you’ll have the opportunity to “play” the arcade game in the store. There are 12 challenges to complete, each with 4 stages. Some have stipulations, but they aren’t too hard. Also some have a surprise round that really doesn’t affect if you pass or fail the stage, but only extra XP.
Can’t Hit Me
Achieve 30 multidodges
You can only multidodge when two enemies are attacking you at the same time. To dodge one attacker, you tap . To perform a multidodge, naturally you double tap . You should get this naturally while playing through the story. If not, you can grind these out in the same location described in “Ultimate Spider-Man”.
Timing Is Everything
Achieve 100 critical hits
A critical hit is performed by following an attack with another attack. You’ll have to tap when the first attack hits your opponent. You’ll know when you’ve performed this correctly when Spider-Man’s hands and feet have a red glow about them. If you spam while fighting you should get this naturally. If not, you can grind these out in the same location described in “Ultimate Spider-Man”.
Defeat 100 enemies
See “Heavyweight Champion”
Defeat 300 enemies
See “Heavyweight Champion”
Defeat 500 enemies
This may not come before you finish the story, but it’ll come when grinding the XP to max out all the suits.
Hero of the People
Save 50 civilians
This will come naturally while completing the fire situations and rescue situations. If not just complete a few more until it pops.
Reach maximum levels for all suits
The maximum level for each suit is 8. This will be a long grind. Even after switching suits once they were maxed out while playing through story mode I only had 4 suits maxed out. See the video below for a good place to grind out the XP. Replay the last story mission “Maximum Carnage” until you get to the part where you have to save Menken. Use the fully upgraded Seismic Blast to knock out the enemies and quickly perform finishers on as many as you can. Repeat until you’ve defeated them all. Make sure that you’re not within the circle when you defeat the last guy or you’ll get to a save point. Once you get the XP for the fight, reload the save and you’ll start back at the beginning of the fight.
State of the Art
Unlock all concept art
Get your heroism to the maximum
This is pretty simple. Once you’re allowed to to side missions, complete a few to raise your hero level. Once you fill up the 3 bars, you’ll achieve maximum hero status and unlock the achievement.
Complete 10 deadlock situations
Look for the gun icon on the map and you’ll have to land on the helicopter to start the side mission. This will be a shootout against 12-15 enemies and the police. They will be concentrated on the police so getting a lot of stealth takedowns will be easy, but not necessary. Take out all of the enemies to complete the mission. Just complete 10 of these for the achievement.
Complete 10 building on fire situations
These are the fire icons on the map. You’ll have to land on the fire
