This Spider-Man Remastered Mod Lets You Play as Uncle Ben… Sort Of

Marvel's Spider-Man Uncle Ben

A Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered mod will let you play as Uncle Ben….’s gravestone.

No, we’re not making this up. We knew there’d be some wild modes when Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered hit the PC (check out our review here), but we never in a million year imagined this. The mod, simple titled “Become Uncle Ben” swaps out your character for Uncle Ben’s gravestone, normally located in the game’s Harlem Cemetery. Still, guess you can’t do much as a gravestone, right.

Wrong. Uncle Ben’s gravestone is surprisingly animated, capable of beating the living hell out of foe after foe. Yes, the gravestone doesn’t quite touch all the foes, given that it’s shorter than the model it replaces, but it’s wild to watch this ridiculous mod in action.

We have The Gamer to thank for bringing this to our attention; as they point out, there’s another grave you can also play as, though if you click through that link, be warned of spoilers. All you need to play this mod is Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (the PC port of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 smash) and a dark sense of humour.

You can watch the Spider-Man Remastered Uncle Ben mod in action above, courtesy of Twitter user Griff Griffin. Sure, you could call this mod disrespectful but that’s nothing compared to Stan Lee who, despite his demise, is still posting on Twitter.

You can find the mod at NexusMods, through this link, though you may need to create a free account first.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
