Spider-Bots are more collectibles in Spider-Man 2 that you can find across New York City, especially if you are looking to achieve a 100 percent completion playthrough.
The biggest challenge you face in finding all of the Spider-Bots is that their locations are not marked on your map. If you get close to a bot though, your map marks an approximate area for you to comb.
Considering that they are small in size and easily missable, you are probably still going to find it frustrating to find all 42 Spider-Bot locations in Spider-Man 2.
Collecting all Spider-Bots will unlock The Message secret quest and award you with Funky Wireless Protocols trophy.
This guide will make it easy for you to find all of the Spider-Bots by showing their map locations.

The Message mission
Once you have collected all 42 Spider-Bots, you will unlock a secret mission called The Message. This should happen automatically. However, some players have reported that the mission fails to unlock even after finding the last Spider-Bot.
If The Message mission fails to unlock, you can activate it yourself by opening your FNSM App and selecting The Message from the list of available missions.
You need to head over to the east border of the Financial District and into the alleyway next to the apartment complex. It will initiate a cut-scene where a portal opens and Delilah, a bartender, will take the Spider-Bots off your hands.
This is an Easter egg reference to the “Beyond the Spider-Verse” movie with a little hint about the events that took place in the trilogy.
After the cut scene, The Message mission will be completed, rewarding you with 1000 XP and 400x Tech Parts.
