Spider-Man isn’t just your friendly neighbourhood superhero, you know. He’s also just a friendly person on the street, too.
When you’re walking around the streets of New York in Marvel’s Spider-Man, you can interact with the locals that you walk past. There’s not much point to it, but it’s nice to do. And if you’re an achievement or trophy hunter you’ll be rewarded for your efforts. So, how to you greet pedestrians in Marvel’s Spider-Man?
Normally used to attack enemies in combat, pressing the Square button (or X button if you’re using an Xbox controller) when no enemies are nearby in Marvel’s Spider-Man produces different results. When on the streets surrounded by pedestrians, pressing the attack button will greet the people nearby. Maybe Spider-Man will give them a quick wave or a friendly hand gesture. Maybe he’ll say hey.
There’s no XP to be gained or any in-game challenges that involve talking to people on the street. But hey, it’s fun. And Marvel’s Spider-Man is all about having fun. So when you’re in between missions, just wandering around looking for your next crime to solve, don’t forget to say hey to your adoring public.
