Spider-Man for the PS4 is every Spidey fans dream. It’s a fantastic game where you’ll be taking down baddies, web-slinging all over, and laughing to the little references the game wants to give nods to. Here are some of our tips and tricks for first time players of Spider-Man on the PS4.
Spider-Man PS4 Tips & Tricks for Beginners
Always Keep an Eye on Your Health
One of the first things you absolutely have to learn in Spider-Man PS4 is that if you don’t pay close attention to your health gauge, you could quickly find yourself staring at a loading screen waiting for poor ol’ Spidey to respawn. Just because Spider-Man is a superhero, doesn’t mean he has regenerative health… though he kinda does.
In order to heal in Spider-Man PS4, you’ll need to build your focus gauge just under your health bar, and then press down on the d-pad to use it. Doing so restores a chunk of health, and upgrades later in the game can help to extend your focus gauge in order to restore more at a time.
If you’re ever finding yourself getting wailed on by a swarm of enemies that have surrounded you, the best thing you can do is jump and press R2 to web your way to freedom. Be sure to keep an eye on the dodge indicator around Spidey’s head to avoid being killed while you’re escaping. Each dodge you successfully pull off will grant a bit of focus, which you can spam over and over to get yourself back to a safe state.
