Unlock New York City as Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
A clever glitch in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has allowed players to freely roam New York City as Venom. YouTuber Ellemen discovered the glitch and shared it via a video. However, it’s important to note that using this glitch may break the game. Ellemen advises players to only utilize it on a manual save and then return to their main save afterwards to avoid any potential issues.
How to Activate the Glitch
To activate the glitch, players need to start the mission called ‘Don’t Be Scared,’ which grants temporary control of Venom at Oscorp Tower. Players must progress through the mission until Venom is in the city. At this point, they must repeatedly jump to scale a building to Venom’s left. Once on the roof, they should continue scaling the building up to the top.
On the top of the building, players will encounter invisible walls on both the left and right sides. Interestingly, continuously running into the right wall deactivates the one on the left. Once the left wall drops, players can run past it and jump into the city below.
Exploring New York City as Venom
As Venom, players can freely explore New York City without many limitations. However, since Insomniac did not intend for Venom to roam the city, there are some unintentionally hilarious oddities. For example, Venom performs a comical “swimming” animation that mimics a breaststroke but freezes with his arms above the water. Additionally, players can ride a bike through the city, although Venom appears disproportionately large on it.
Currently, this glitch is the only way for players to experience the thrill of free-roaming as Venom in New York City. However, many fans are hopeful for a Venom-themed DLC in the future. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is exclusively available on the PlayStation 5.
