Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 features not one, not two, but three different skill trees! Here’s everything you need to know about all unlockable skills for Peter and Miles.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will have you web-slinging and fighting crime across New York City as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales’ Spider-Man. And although they share the same superpower, each Spider-Man has his unique charm.
So, you can expect to try out different move-sets with both protagonists to keep your gameplay from feeling repetitive. That said, the only way to dish out the new and improved move-sets in the game is to quickly level up and unlock Skill Points, which you can then use to learn new abilities.
While most basic abilities will cost you 1 Skill Point to learn, more advanced moves may require spending 2 Skill Points to unlock. However, these moves cannot be learned randomly. So, you must first unlock the base skills to be able to move further down the Skill Tree.
Having said that, both protagonists, Peter and Miles have their own separate Skill Tree. So, you have to spend your Skill Points considerately. Luckily, the two Spider-Men also have a third, shared skill tree. So, any ability unlocked from the shared skill tree can be used by both Peter and Miles.
This guide will list every skill from all three Skill Trees in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, along with the abilities they unlock for each Spider-Man, and how to perform them.
