Here’s how to switch gadgets in Spider-Man PS4.
While the game will teach you how to do this, it’s easy to forget how to utilize the gadget wheel. It’s especially easy to forget when you’re taking down goons left and right with no time to stop and think (less you give up that stacked combo you’ve spent the past two minutes creating). Remember this during those heated moments: L1.
To switch gadgets, you simply need to hold L1. Doing so will bring up the Gadget Select. If you’ve done it correctly, you’ll see a large wheel on the screen displaying all of your available gadgets in different sectors of the wheel. To select one of those gadgets, continue holding L1 and while doing so, use R (the right stick) to move the highlight to the gadget you wish to switch to. Once you’ve got the highlight moved to the right gadget, let go of L1 and you should see that Spider-Man now has the gadget you selected equipped.
