Spider-Man is gifted with incredible reflexes and super strength – which doesn’t mean that he is immortal. Criminals’ attacks will hurt him and can eventually kill him. Luckily, Marvel’s Spider-Man has a nice healing mechanic to help you survive the toughest battles in the game.
In order to heal yourself in combat, you must have a certain amount of focus. You can gain it by fighting or swinging on the web. Throwing objects and fighting in the air also generate a lot of focus. Once you have accumulated a certain amount, press the lower arrow on the controller.
Spider-Man will be recovering health for some time, depending on the amount of focus you’ve used. Note that health gains are not instantaneous, so try to heal up as need it. After a while, you will unlock a modification for the costume – First Aid, which increases the amount of health regained using focus. It’s a good idea to install this upgrade if you need to heal often and feel that your character is underpowered. Also remember that Peter’s health bar is extended from time to time when you advance to a certain level of experience.
How to acquire Focus in Marvel’s Spider-Man?
In addition to standard attacks and gadgets, Spider-Man will accumulate so-called Focus. The following chapter of the guide for Marvel’s Spider-Man will inform you how to acquire this resource and how to use it in combat.
Focus is accumulated in a bar, just below Spider-Man’s health bar. There are several ways to get it – the quickest way is to fight criminals. Each successful attack, dodge or use of the web is rewarded with a certain amount of Focus. We also get quite a lot of it when throwing objects at enemies and swinging on the web.
Two costume modifications also significantly improve Focus gain in combat. The first one is Kinetic Power Cells – the modification increases the rate of Focus generation. The second improvement worthy of attention is Battle Tech, which causes attacks with gadgets to generate this resource as well.
It is also worth acquiring the Air Marshall skill, which strengthens air attacks and improves their ability to generate Focus. An absolute must is also the Perfect Hit skill, which fills our Focus bar in an extremely efficient way.
Enemies in Marvel’s Spider-Man
Marvel’s Spider-Man gives you the opportunity to fight many battles – in addition to super-villains, there are also numerous token thugs to be taken care of, hating the main character with a passion. The creators have provided a large variety of enemies. The following page of our guide presents a list of enemies in the game, along with a description of how to deal with them in the easiest way.
- Unarmed melee opponents. They’re the game’s cannon fodder, which is not really a big problem. They often attack in large numbers – a simple combo or a throw are all that you need to take them out.
- Criminals with firearms. These enemies are much more dangerous because they attack from a distance and their bullets chip away a lot of your health. The priority is to take care of them first. It is worth learning skills that can disarm them, which will significantly reduce the threat from these enemies.
- Criminals with a rocket launcher. These enemies are definitely high on the top-list of the most dangerous adversaries in the game – although it is quite easy to avoid a single rocket, it can hit Peter in the heat of battle, which will really hurt. It is necessary to focus on these enemies first – they have the highest priority in combat.
- Snipers. This type of opponents is often located somewhere high up, trying to target our character from afar. Their attack is quite difficult to avoid, and piercing bullets can quickly defeat even Spider-Man; if possible try to defeat them at the beginning of the fight. Also try to be on the move all the time.
- Enemies with shields. These enemies have shields in front of them, which negate damage from the front. Attack them from behind, or pull away their shield if you’ve unlocked the required ability.
- Brutes. These large enemies come in XXL size and can deliver quite a punch. They can efficiently block your attacks – you have to slip between their legs and attack them from behind. I also highly recommend the Electric Web, which will stun the enemy and neutralize the threat. Be sure to use dodges, because these guys can hit you almost as hard as a rocket.
- Enemies with special hand-to-hand combat weapons. On your way you will also meet enemies with whips, sword or special claws. These enemies have different attacks, although they are practically always fought in the same way – the basis is dodging and wrapping the enemies when they have their face stuck in the web. All kinds of gadgets are also useful, especially Electric Web and Suspensor Matrix. Take a defensive stance, dodge and focus on counters.
- Zombie/mind-controlled citizens. You will meet enemies who have been temporarily possessed by Mister Negative’s power. These enemies are very weak and fall after a few attacks. Their strength, however, lies in their large numbers.
- Enemies with jetpacks. At some point you will be forced to fight against Sable’s mercenaries, including soldiers with jetpacks. Pull yourself to them with the web and finish them off quickly in the air. Also very useful is the ability called Revenge, which takes them out immediately.
- Turrets. To get rid of them, press L1+R1 at the same time – you’ll tear out the turret and neutralize the threat.
