If you’re hoping to do everything a Spider-Man can, you’ll need to know how to perform different Air Tricks, which give you small XP boosts and make traversal even more exciting. Let’s find out how to do these tricks and why you may want to add them to your normal swings.

How Do I Perform Air Tricks In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?

To begin performing Air Tricks in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, you’ll want to press and hold the Square button on your controller while in the air after swinging. Once you are holding the button, start pressing and holding the Left Thumbstick in any direction to perform different tricks. You can also push the stick in one direction and then switch to another to perform more advanced tricks that will give you extra XP bonuses and help you look amazing while swinging around the city before you.

It doesn’t matter if you’re playing as either Peter Parker or Miles Morales, you can perform these tricks with either Spider-Men available in the game. Each character has their own unique style and flair for the way that they swing around, and their tricks are no different, either.

You’ll know that you’ve successfully started doing a trick if you see your particular Spider-Man of choice start moving differently, alongside a pop-up on the right side of the screen that showcases the name of the trick and the amount of XP that you’ve earned while doing it. Experiment a bit and see what kind of wild moves you can pull off while exploring the city, and start pushing toward the next level so you can unlock new suits like the No Way Home suit for Peter.

Get yourself ready for anything that these villains can throw your way by checking out our Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 section below. Find out if you can swing around the city once again in New Game Plus, or if you’ll run across Peter’s ex-girlfriend Black Cat while you are on your adventure. Spider-Man 2 brings the world to life before your eyes, so be prepared for everything with our help.
