Our Marvel’s SpiderMan PS4 Combat Guide will help you with being more efficient in combat with best combat skills, combos, moves, and useful gadgets at Spidey’s disposal.

There are many skills in Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 that can be used in combat; however, not all of them are as efficient as the other. That is where our Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 Combat Guide comes to help you.

Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 Combat

A SpiderMan game would not work without combat and for the same reason, Marvel’s SpiderMan PS4 features combat to give you that feeling of being a SpiderMan taking down enemies and bosses. However, there is a lot of stuff that will help you during combat like skills, combos, and gadgets.

Combat Tips

Marvel’s SpiderMan PS4 features Batman: Arkham series like combat but with a spin of its own. Basic combat is easy; however, pulling off combos require you to remember the button presses.

In combat, all you have to do is attack and dodge and dodging is important; otherwise, you will lose your health. Watch your opponents and look for an opportunity to dodge and get out of the way and continue your combo streak.

Here are a few things for you to consider for a fluid combat experience.

Scope out the Environment
Before you head into the combat area, make sure to scope it out for snipers, as they will give you a tough time during combat.

Make a Memorable Entrance
Once the snipers and other hurdles in the environment have been taken care of, make sure to make your entrance with a bang by doing a ground strike right in the middle of the enemy crowd to knock them back and follow it with Shockwave/Concussive Blast.

If you are on a rooftop and the Concussive Blast can help you knock them off the roof and they will not bother you again.

Make Use of Web-Strike As Much As You Can
Web-Strike is one of the most useful combat skills Marvel’s SpiderMan PS4. This will allow SpiderMan to throw a web at the enemy and goes flying towards him.

This also helps to zip through the combat area and can get you out of the crowded for a little while.

Spam Those Web Shooters
The reason why I am asking you to spam your Web-Shooters as they stop enemies in their tracks for a while and will give you an opportunity to take them out.

Also, do not be afraid to spam the Web-Shooters as they recharge easy. Moreover, if the enemy is right next to a wall or an object, Web-Shooting them will immediately tie them to surface.

Remember to Dodge
Your dodge ability works hand-in-hand with your Spider Sense. When Peter senses danger coming, a white halo will surround his head. The, when Peter senses immediate danger, a blue-ish halo will appear.

You have to practice dodging right as that halo turns blue.

Don’t Choose Targets by Yourself
Instead of moving your aim to another targeting and beating them, press triangle to switch your focus to another target. Doing this is much more efficient than manually choosing the target by yourself.

Make sure to switch targets after you’re finished with one. Try not to switch targets before you’re done beating someone up.

Use Finishers and Healing at the Right Time
If look under your health bar, you’ll see the meter for your Focus. This meter can be filled up by dishing out damage.

Focus does two things in the game: heal you or allow you to perform a finisher. You have to be very conscious with how you use your Focus.

In certain situations, it may be better to use the Finisher and kill the enemy instantly, while in other situations, you’ll be better off healing yourself. When you start off in the game, try to mainly use your Focus with heal as using the finisher will just kill off the enemy, which will give you less time to practice the combat.

Be Creative!
Instead of just brawling with the bad guys, make an effort to be more creative. Not only is this a better way to take out enemies, it’ll also result in a more enjoyable game experience.

There are a lot of ways to take out your opponents, rather than the old-fashioned brawling. You can take enemies out with stealth, throw objects from the environment at them, toss them up into the air and pummel them etc.

How to Fight Each Type of Enemy

There are seven types of enemies in this game. Each of these enemies have to be fought in a specific way; you can’t just punch your way through all of them.

Normal Enemies: The most basic enemy. Anything will work against them.

Melee Weapon Enemy: For this type of enemy, you have to first knock them into the air by holding square.

Shield Enemy: Attack them first by pressing square, and then press circle. Doing this will make you slide through their legs and strike them from the back.

Whip Enemy: You can’t attack Whip Enemies first. You have to wait for them to perform an attack on you, which you’ll then dodge and punish with an attack of your own. The best way to take these enemies down is by performing a perfect dodge, as it’ll blind them; allowing you to easily take them down.

Brute Enemies: For Brute Enemies, you have to first strike them 5 times using your web shooter or other gadgets. Only then will you be able to hit them.

Sable Agents: These agents just have a ton of armor. Meaning, you’ll have to dish out quite a few hits before they go down. Do note that you can remove their armor using your Concussion Blast Gadget.

Jetpack Agents: Get up close to these enemies by pressing triangle, and then strike them two times.
