1. Theme RemixIn 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.
2. Funky HatIn 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 IslandAs 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-ManAs 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 BackpackIf 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 SanctorumAlthough it was already available in the previous game, the Sanctum Sanctorum, mainly associated with Dr. Strange, is back in the game. This time, it is bigger and better and also has a mission, “Make Your Own Choices,” associated with it, where you help out Black Cat.
8. Speed NonagonIf you played Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you might recall Ganke saying he’s working on a game called Speed Nonagon. The game references a real-life indie game known as Super Hexagon, which came out in 2012. 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 MascotWhile 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 FramesIn 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-BotsIn 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 TrophyIn 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 ForeverIn Spider-Man 2, the Wakanda Embassy is one of the few notable buildings. You can approach the building and get the option to do the Wakanda Forever gesture in front of it. There is also a suit for Miles known as the Forever Suit, which is also a reference to Black Panther. In fact, one of its styles makes Miles Look a lot like him.
14. MoonknightRecently, one of the more popular characters from the Marvel Universe has been Moonknight with his amazing show. Well, there is actually a suit in Spider-Man 2 known as Arachknight. In the comics, it is meant to be the combination of Moonknight and Spider-Man.
15. Baxter BuildingWhile swinging around, you might run into a building with a familiar logo. On the rooftop of a building near the southern end of the central park, you’ll notice the Fantastic Four’s logo. That symbolizes the Baxter Building, the main headquarters for the Fantastic Four.
16. Home RunRight next to Coney Island, there is a proper baseball pitch that you can fully explore. If, for some reason, you decide to get on the field and run a full homerun, Peter or Miles will make a few hilarious remarks, and you’ll also unlock the Home Run trophy. To learn more, you can read up on how to unlock all trophies in Spider-Man 2.
17. Knull And The MeteoriteThe meteorite bringing the Symbiote to Earth is black with a red spiral, symbolizing Knull, the god of symbiotes, who aimed to dominate the universe through them. Thor wounded Knull in the comics, freeing the symbiotes from his control. Knull was trapped on the planet Klyntar but got free in the modern era due to Eddie Brock’s actions.
18. Green GoblinLeaving one of the major easter eggs for the end, a huge reference to the Green Goblin. On one of the buildings, there is a mural of Norman Osborn. But, someone decided to graffiti all over it and gave him green-colored horns that look much like the Green Goblin’s horns from the comic. And, if you’ve read about the Spider-Man 2 ending, you might recall that Norman also mentions the “G-Serum,” which could further foreshadow his debut as the Green Goblin in the next game.
