What are the best Skills to unlock first in Marvel's Spider-Man 2? With both Peter Parker and Miles Morales playable in the PS5 sequel, you've got Skills for both of them to consider as well as a Shared set of Skills to unlock. As such, it can be pretty overwhelming to know where to begin. As part of our Marvel's Spider-Man 2 guide, we are going to reveal the best Skills to unlock first.
What Are the Best Skills to Unlock First in Marvel's Spider-Man 2?
You can unlock new Skills in the Skills tab on the pause menu, using Skill Points earned from levelling up to purchase them. There's a Skill Tree for Peter, another for Miles, and a third named Shared, which grants an ability for both of the Spider-Men to use. Below you'll find the best Skills to unlock first. We have sections focusing on both Peter and Miles, and another detailing what to pick up from the Shared Skill Tree. You will earn enough Skill Points to unlock every Skill in the game, so you needn't worry about missing out on anything.
