From the obvious to obscure, here are the suits you get to unlock in that pretty cool PS4 Spider-Man game from the guys who made Sunset Overdrive and the Ratchet & Clank series. Haven’t seen our review yet? It’s right here (spoiler-free, don’t worry)!
Keep in mind that once you unlock a suit’s power, you can change it even if you’re wearing another suit. Example: you can have the Rock Out suit power on your Daft Punk-inspired Spider Armor MK II getup.
And for fun, we’ll also rate them on a scale of 8, because spiders have 8 legs. If you want a guide on how to Spider-Man like a pro, head here.
Unlock requirements: Backpack Token x2, Crime Token x2
Unlocked Power: Web Blossom. This makes Spider-Man leap into the air and web everything in sight.
Rating: 8. Nothing beats the original Steve Ditko design.

Rating: 4. It’s a product of its time.
Scarlet Spider Suit
Unlock requirements: Crime Token x3, Landmark Token x2, Level 3
Unlocked power: Holo Decoy. Experimental AR tech spawns multiple Holo Decoys that stun attacking enemies before decaying. Because Clone Wars.

Spider Armor – MK II Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x1, Landmark Token x1, Research Token x2, Level 5
Calls two awesome French DJs to party Bullet Proof; this makes you temporarily bullet-proof against all enemies.

Secret War Suit
Unlock Requirements: Backpack Token x2, Base Token x1, Research Token x2, Level 7

Unlocked power: Spider-Bro.Calls in a Spider-Bro to help you out in combat.
Rating: 6. Not as cool as the Iron Spider suit from the Avengers grieve-fest.

Electrically Insulated Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x1, Crime Token x3, Research Token x1, Level 13
Unlocked power: Electric
Company Punch. You get electric gauntlets which electrify enemies with your standard punches. Shocking!

Unlock requirements: Backpack Token x2, Crime Token x3, Landmark Token x2, Level 16
Unlocked power: Rock Out. Blasts enemies with waves of righteous sound.
Rating: 6. Less “The Misfits” and more “Green Day”; really great ensemble but not as legendary & influential.
Unlock requirements: Backpack Token x2, Base Token x2, Research Token x2, Level 19
Unlocked power: King of the Ring. You can Web Throw enemies without having to web them up.
Rating: 2. Not even the WWE would approve of such shoddy craftsmanship.
Fear Itself Suit

Rating: 4. Not as svelte as the Negative Suit.
Stealth (“Big Time”) Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x2, Challenge Token x4, Landmark Token x3, Level 23
Unlocked Power: Blur Projector. Creates a distortion field that can obscure you from non-alerted enemies. Great for perch takedowns and sneak attacks.
Rating: 6. It’s too try-hard for our taste.
Spider Armor – MK III Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x2, Challenge Token x4, Crime Token x4, Level 26
Unlocked power: Titanium Alloy Plates. This power-up temporarily reflect all bullets back at shooters. Doesn’t apply to snipers though.

Spider-Man 2009 Black Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x2, Crime Token x4, Research Token x4, Level 29
Unlocked power: Low Gravity. Decrease gravity while in the air. It’s as OP as it sounds.
Rating: 8. This one’s a 90s futuristic-esque classic that won’t run out of steam anytime soon.
Iron Spider Suit (from Avengers: Infinity War)
Unlock requirements: Base Token x3, Challenge Token x3, Crime Token x4, Level 31
Unlocked power: Iron Arms. Wreak havoc with four articulated arms made from rapidly grown alloys. You get to auto-attack and crowd control like mad.

Spider Armor MK IV Suit
Unlock requirement: Base Token x4, Challenge Token x4, Landmark Token x3, Level 35
Unlocked power: Defense shield. Temporarily absorbs all damage.
Rating: 7. Less obnoxious than the previous MK suit.
Spirit Spider Suit

Unlocked power: Spirit Fire.
Rating: 3. We keep thinking naked malformed Ghost Rider when we think of this. Put on a leather jacket, man.
Spider-Man 2009 White Suit
Unlock requirements: Base Token x4, Challenge Token x4, Crime Token x4, Level 39
Unlocked power: Concussion Strike. Your attacks will send enemies flying.
Rating: 4. Meh. Why change up an already-iconic design?
Vintage Comic Book Suit
Unlock requirements: Backpack Token x 4, Challenge Token x4, Crime Token x4, Level 41
Unlocked power: Quips. Insult your enemy’s pride.
Rating: 8. It’s the classic suit now with cel-shading. Your mileage of the animation technique may vary.

Rating: 2. Last minute getups deserve last minute scores.
Unlock requirements: Unlocked as story progresses towards the end
Unlocked power: Resupply. You get an unlimited supply of gadget ammo and cartridges for a short period of time. Go “thwip” like nobody’s business.
Rating: 7. It’s on-par with the MK-1 Daft Punk suit, that’s for sure.
Unlock requirements: Find all of Black Cat’s stakeouts.
Unlocked power: Nothing. It looks snazzy though.
Rating: 7. The dark colour and red ensemble is pretty awesome if we’re being honest. Probably has a lot to do with how the 2099 costume pulls it off well.
MCU’s Spiderman: Homecoming Homemade Suit
Unlock requirements: Collect all of Peter Parker’s backpacks scattered throughout the map.
Unlocked power: Bupkis…
Rating: 3. Unless you wanna look like a superhero on a budget, we’d steer away from this monstrosity.
Unlock requirements: Landmark Token x2, Backpack Token x2, Challenge Token x4, Level 33
Unlocked power: Blitz. Makes you sprint much faster; your momentum will knock down enemies.

Unlocked power: Equalizer. One hit, one kill for goons and Spider-Man.
Rating: 2. Unless you’re into walking about in the buff.
