Do it for her.

Spider-Man 2 is lousy with collectibles to track down, and not all of them are readily displayed for you on the map. Case in point: The first batch of collectibles tied to restoring Sand Man’s memories only appear once you’re close enough to them, and can be tricky to spot if you’re not carefully hunting for them. That’s why we’ve constructed this guide covering all of the Marko’s Memories collectible locations in Spider-Man 2 to speed up the process for you.

All Sand Man Memory Crystal Locations in Spider-Man 2

There are a total of 14 Memories to track down in Spider-Man 2. Two of these are only revealed by starting and advancing the quest respectively, while the other 12 are scattered throughout the different districts of New York.

We’ve broken down where you can find each Memory based on the districts in which they appear. You can collect these as either Miles or Peter, and it’s possible to collect every one as soon as you’re introduced to them in the early hours of the game.

The first of Marko’s Memories is found in the Financial District. It’s given to you automatically as you explore the city in the aftermath of Marko’s attack as part of the main story, so it’s impossible to miss this one.

You’re also introduced to the general mechanics of this collectible and how to track them down. They appear as orange crystals on your map, and are denoted by clouds of sand swirling around their immediate vicinity. Once you get close enough, you’ll have to fight off some sand enemies before you can retrieve the Memory Crystals and unravel why Marko attacked the city in the first place.

Memory #2

The second Memory Crystal is on the northern edge of the district. head to the point marked on the map above, and then look for the mini sandstorm in-between two apartment buildings.

It can be a little difficult to overcome the enemies here as the area you can fight in is so cramped. Do your best to pull yourself toward enemies and out of attack range with the Triangle Button, and dodge with the Circle Button whenever an attack is incoming. Before long, you’ll be able to collect the Memory Crystal without issue.

Memory #3

For the next Memory, head to the southern tip of the district and look for a water fountain. The telltale sandstorm will be ranging from a distance, and the Memory Crystal will come into view once you get down on the ground and approach it.

Once you’ve found 13 of Marko’s Memories, the location of the 14th and final memory is revealed to you. Head toward the marker on your map in Downtown Brooklyn, and then look for a Memory Crystal in the sandy wreckage of Marko’s attack during the main story.

After you examine the Crystal, you’ll be dragged into a memory world. Once you regain control of your character, follow the ball of light that appears by hopping from point to point along the sandy heads and hands.

After doing this for a bit, you’re brought to a giant Memory Crystal protected by a near-endless wave of sand enemies. The only way to stop them and restore all of Marko’s Memories is to destroy this giant Crystal by throwing nearby rocks at it in-between the enemies’ attacks.

Focus on knocking out the enemies capable of ranged attacks, and then kite the melee attacker enemies away from the rocks you can throw. Then, toss the rocks in the direction of the giant Crystal. Rinse and repeat, and it should break down before long.

After that, you’ll be given the location of Marko’s Ex-Wife so that you can deliver his completed Memory Crystal to Keemia. The side quest then ends on a high note with Keemia safe and Spider-Man considering ways he can help Marko see her more often.
