In one of the earlier missions, you get to visit Coney Island. Over there, as Miles, you try out Mysterio’s Mysterium and live out Miles’ dream of being a DJ. If you successfully complete all the QTEs, you’ll begin to notice that the music he’s playing is actually a remix of the main Spider-Man theme

In Coney Island, enjoying all the rides grants you funky hats at the reward shop. Peter wears the chosen hat while exploring but loses it during the main mission rides. However, when controlling Spider-Man again, he wears it during the fight. If hit once, the hat comes off and can’t be worn outside the mission.

3. Villain Names In Coney Island

As you explore Coney Island, you might notice that many of the rides’ names are quite familiar. That is because many of them are references to Spidey’s villains from the comics. For example, Hydro Bench and Speed Demon, the main roller coaster that the crew gets on, are references to some lesser-known villains from the comics. 

4. Shirtless Spider-Man

As part of the Photo-Ops, there’s a strange character called “Shirtless Spider-Man.” He’s there because a guy named Greg Miller, who really liked the first game, talked about it a lot on YouTube and also dressed up as the Shirtless Spider-Man. So, the game makers put this character in the game as a surprise.

You can find the “Shirtless Spider-Man” in the new Spider-Man 2 game. He’s on a rooftop in the Upper West Side, dancing and having fun with another “Shirtless Spider-Man” in front of a camera.

5. Amazing Fantasy #15

While exploring Peter’s room as part of the main story, you’ll find a newspaper cover on his pinboard. The image in that poster is a replica of the first-ever comic-book cover in which Spider-Man debuted in the Marvel universe. 

In fact, if you play the side mission “Photo Help,” you get to work with another photographer who is taking inspiration from Peter’s work. In that mission, you also get to see the image in more detail. 

6. Peter’s Backpack

If you played the first Spider-Man, you might recall that Peter’s backpack was one of the biggest collectibles in that game. The backpacks were known for being in the most odd places imaginable. Well, during one of the main story missions in Spider-Man 2, you sneak around Parker’s old high school as young Peter Parker.

In that mission, there is a throwback to the backpack collectibles in the form of a backpack webbed in the ventilation shafts. 

7. The Sanctum Sanctorum

If you played Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you might recall Ganke saying he’s working on a game called Speed Nonagon.

In Spider-Man 2, when you’re playing Peter Parker and exploring his house for the first time, you can see the disc lying on his table. 

9. Teo’s Mascot

While exploring the different Photo Ops in Spider-Man 2, you’ll eventually come across Teo’s Mascot and his less convincing copy. When you approach them, they seem to be having a bicker amongst themselves. But if you stick around, you’ll actually discover that they have at least 10-15 minutes worth of dialogue. They’ll even make remarks about you taking a picture of them. But what’s even better is that Teo’s Mascot is voiced by Nathan Fillion

10. Comic Style Frames

In the previous game, the Spider-Man Into The spiderverse suits had a unique feature where they’d play out in 24fps, giving it an authentic movie-like feeling. The same thing is carried over in Spider-Man 2, but what’s even better is that you can apply the effect to any suit by toggling the option in settings.

The only requirement is that you need to unlock one of the Spiderverse suits first. You can learn more about the suits by reading the best suits guide.

11. Miguel And Spider-Bots

In Spider-Man 2, there are 42 Spider-Bots as major collectibles, scattered throughout the map. As you collect them, Ganke deciphers a message. After collecting all, you unlock a mission where a cartoonish bartender collects the rogue Spider-Bots.

This character is animated in the style of Into The Spiderverse movies and references Miguel, a major character in Across The Spiderverse. She discusses how Miguel wouldn’t want the rogue Spider-Bots just lying around, aligning with his personality. Learn more about the bots in my Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Spider-bot locations guide.

12. Spacebound Science Trophy

In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, there’s a sweet nod to the friendship between Phin Mason and Miles Morales. If you head up to the rooftop of Trinity Church and switch to photo mode while looking down, you’ll spot a Spacebound Science Trophy.

When they were younger, Phin and Miles actually won this trophy together. It’s also a collectible in Spiderman: Miles Morales. Also, if you interact with the trophy, you unlock the “Just Let Go” trophy. You can also find Phin’s gravestone in Spider-Man 2.

13. Wakanda Forever
