Venom is the most challenging villain in Spider-Man 2; the boss fight is incredibly hard, and dealing with him requires a proper strategy
So, if you're wondering how to beat Venom in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, we've got you covered. Here's our guide to help you take down Venom.
How to Defeat Venom in Spider-Man 2?
Before you get to the Venom showdown in the 'Together' mission, you must complete a segment as Mary Jane. You have to sneak through Symbiote cave and take down hive doors and dangerous enemies.
After you've completed the segment, it will lead to a mini-boss fight involving Symbiote Behemoth. It's easy to defeat this Symbiote if you shoot the arena's barrels when it comes close.
In total, there are five waves in the final fight against Venom in Marvel's Spider-Man 2; you'll have to make use of your gadgets and environment.
In the Venom battle's first phase, you have to dodge at all costs. Venom has a lot of combos that can drain your health, so it's best to wait until he has stopped attacking you before landing some hits.
The anti-venom suit shares powers similar to the symbiote suit, so make use of it whenever possible. Don't forget that Venom is completely immune to your webs, so don't use them to distract him. Instead, make use of sonic burst and try to land hits when he is stunned. If you have to deal, there are segments in the arena that you can wing to. Be sure to use these when Venom begins sending mouths to you from the ground.
Once you're on the football field, use a speaker in the environment, as Venom can't withstand loud noises. The distraction lets you damage him with moves like a swing kick.
After you've dealt with Venom's first health bar, you'll get a short cutscene before being thrown right back into the action. The best way to take down Venom during this wave is to focus on him instead of the Symbiote minions he summons. You must make use of your Anti Venom powers to deplete his shield.
Once you've taken out his shield, the second wave is similar to the first one. You have to make use of the same tactics to avoid his attacks as you used in Wave 1. If you are struggling with hand-to-hand combat, make sure to bring some damage-dealing gadgets.
This is where things will start getting tricky. Venom will now have his wings, and you'll have to take control of Miles for a more aerial-based phase than the first two. The best way to take down Venom in Wave 3 is to spam your abilities and dodge his attacks in the air. You have to constantly press Triangle to keep up with Venom in the air and send his boulder back to him by pressing L1 and R1.
Miles has special electricity powers, and well-timed outbursts can deal bonus damage. Once Venom is down to three-quarters of health, he'll crash back to the ground, and the ground combat will begin.
Wave 4 is more like the first one, a straight-up fistfight that will rely on your skills. In order to take down Venom in this wave, you have to make use of speakers on the battlefield again to stun him before spamming your abilities. When he's high in the air, dodge his projectile-based attacks and use your abilities when he's trying to recover.
This wave is just a bunch of quick time events, so get ready to mash square when the prompt appears on the screen and do one trigger mini-game, where all you need to do is hold L2 and R2.
After defeating Venom, you will get the game's final cutscene.
