Can You Take a Selfie in Spider-Man 2?

Unfortunately, unlike 2018’s Spider-Man and 2020’s Miles Morales, there’s no dedicated selfie button in Spider-Man 2. We know it may be a little disappointing to hear, but right now, it’s not currently in the game. Thankfully, there is a workaround to this.

How to Get a Selfie

Luckily, there is a dedicated Photo Mode, so as long as you’re happy to tinker around with it, you’ll be able to snag yourself a selfie.

All you’ll need to do is make your Spidey strike a pose by pressing the Square button, toggling to “Character Mode”, and turning on “Enable Posing”. Then, simply pause the game by pressing the Options button.

From here, select the Photo mode in the menu, and you’ll then be able to move around the camera and zoom in on the front of Spidey to net yourself a selfie of sorts. Furthermore, don’t forget to hide the game’s UI to get that elegant selfie pic. Yes, it may not be as convenient as getting a selfie in the last duo of Insomniac Games titles, but it’s still possible to snap yourself a nice self-portrait.

Lastly, make sure to experiment with some of the in-game Photo mode features. There are plenty of Lens options to try out and even some Visual Effects settings that add smoke and moving lights. Meanwhile, the Enemy Visibility and Hero Visibility settings allows you to turn both villains and heroes’ sprites off, making for some crisp images of the Big Apple’s panoramic vistas. Of course, turning on that aforementioned Hero Visibility setting may not be so useful if you’re looking to take a selfie!
