During the early portions of the game, players will be in control of both Peter and Miles as they visit The Raft, a prison that contains a variety of powerful villains. As they watch from above, characters like Scorpion & Mister Negative are loaded onto armored ships, only for things to go awry as expected.

Kraven and his squad of goons have crashed the party, and Scorpion can escape after infecting Miles with his hallucinogenic stinger. After navigating through a trippy sequence, players will begin the hunt for The Hunter themselves. However, they will not find what they expect once they encounter Scorpion again.

As Peter explores the Hunter’s lair, he comes across an extensive list of different villains, with Scorpion leading the overall list. Other characters, such as Black Cat also make their appearance on this list, so Peter immediately becomes skeptical. This isn’t a list of Villians to band together but a hit list for Kraven. After a pan toward a PC monitor, a broken jail cell and a fight between The Hunter and Scorpion starts.

Scorpion stabs Kraven in the chest with his stinger, which seemingly unfazed The Hunter, who subsequently cuts off the stinger and plunges it directly into his side while choking him to death in this pit. A somber pan out of the camera shows Gargan’s lifeless body and one less Super Villian in the world of Spider-Man.
