City tokens are the primary currency to unlock most locked features in Spiderman 2. This guide can help to explain city tokens.

Marvel’s Spiderman 2 is the latest action-adventure game by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is the third entry in the Marvel’s Spiderman series, acting as a sequel to Marvel’s Spiderman (2018) and a follow-up to Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales (2020).

The game picks up right where Spiderman: Miles Morales ended; Peter and Miles are struggling to navigate the next steps in their personal lives while tackling new threats, including a private militia led by Kraven the Hunter and the extraterrestrial Venom symbiote.

The gameplay builds on the foundation established by its predecessors, with an emphasis on the multiple playstyles afforded by Peter Parker and Miles Morales as Spidermen.

The game expands on their existing traversal and combat abilities, including new web-based gadgets and suits that can be unlocked through progress in the story. It also introduces the former Spiderman’s symbiote suit, granting Parker unique abilities from his previous playable appearance.

As with the prior games, content outside the main story consists of completing side missions and obtaining collectibles dispersed throughout the game’s open world. One of these collectibles is city tokens, which you can use to unlock different mechanics and collectibles in the game.

The player can switch between Parker and Morales to complete dedicated objectives for each of them.
