Spider-Man 2 Marko’s Memories Locations Guide

Learning about the tragic backstory of the city’s most wanted criminal.

Marko’s Memories are a type of collectible in Spider-Man 2 that take the form of large orange crystals containing Sandman’s memories. They are easily recognizable due to their distinct appearance and the large sand cloud hovering over them.

You can start collecting them after completing the main quest One Thing At A Time in Act 2. Following that you can obtain a memory by defeating all nearby enemies and then smashing the crystal as either Miles or Peter.

There are a total of 15 memories that are scattered across all of the Districts. Finding all of them unlocks the Grains of Sand achievement in Spider-Man 2, which is also required for 100 percent District completion.

So whether you are a completionist or an achievement hunter, you will need to acquire these memories, so let’s look into where you can find them.

Marko’s Memories locations in Spider-Man 2

Marko’s Memories in Spider-Man 2 are spread across all Districts of New York so you will have the opportunity to explore the whole map.

With the exception of two Memories, the remaining 13 can be found during free-roam in the open world.


For your ease, we have separated all memories by Districts, and are mentioned in an order that will form the fastest route to get them all. That being said, you can get the memories in any order you want.

The Broken Promise Memory Crystal is found near the building west of Downtown Brooklyn’s park in the center.

Together Again (final memory before Remember)

This memory is available only after gathering the rest of the 13 crystals first. Smashing the crystal will take you into the realm of Marko’s Memories, starting the Remember quest in Spider-Man 2.

How to complete Remember in Spider-Man 2

To complete the Remember mission in Spider-Man 2, you need to first follow the giant golden ball emitting Marko’s voice deeper into the memory realm.

It will lead you to a circular, reinforced crystal with Together Again memory in the center. To break through the spiked barrier, you need to throw the rocks nearby towards it. During this, Marko’s Sandman clones will spawn and attack you, similar to how you got the other Memories.

After you break through, you will get the Together Again Marko’s Memory in the center but you still have a few things to do before you can complete the Remember mission.  

After you have collected all previous 14 Marko’s Memories, MJ will contact you about an address Marko has been repeating that you would want to look into.

The address will lead you to a small grey house on Van Doren St. in northern Astoria. Knock on the door for a small cut-scene for the last Marko’s Memory which will unlock the Grain of Sand achievement and complete the Remember side story.

Spider-Man 2 – Marko’s Memories Rewards

Every Marko’s Memory rewards you with 400 XP and 5x City Tokens except for the Remember Side Quest, completing which gets you 2000 XP and 20x City Tokens.

Unfortunately, finding all Marko’s Memories does not reward you with a new Spider-Man 2 Suit.
