Marvel’s Midnight Suns Venom best gifts and best hangouts guide

After Venom joins your roster in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, he’ll be at the default Friendship Level 0. As such, you’ve got your work cut out for you. You’ll have to do various activities to boost it further:

  • Sparring (every four days/missions).
  • Compliments (as long as you have them).
  • Have Venom join missions with the Hunter in the team.
  • Haven (once per character).
  • Hangouts (only at night; slightly RNG-based if it pops up, though make sure you bring Venom in missions to increase the chances).
  • And, of course, gifts.

I’ve listed the best gifts for Venom in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. The list is incomplete since I haven’t gotten his character-specific item to pop up yet, and some haven’t been tested. I do want to thank all the Reddit users who replied to my post. I listed several gift and Hangout results based on early tests, and peeps added more info.

Best Hangouts and Havens for Venom

As for Hangouts, as mentioned earlier, it’s a bit random when you’ll get the option to pop up. It usually occurs after every two missions, and has a higher chance of showing up if you bring Venom along. You do get to choose from three activities, so try to pick those that are “Loved” followed by those that are only “Liked.” Lastly, remember that Havens are one-time use (i.e., each location can only be used once and each hero can only be brought to a single Haven for the entire game). Pick the Haven with the matching activity to maximize the bonuses.

  • Picnic = Loved
  • Having a Drink = Loved
  • Playing Cards = Loved
  • Working Out = Loved
  • Fishing = Loved
  • Pool Lounging = Loved
  • Painting = Likedff
  • Picking Mushrooms = Liked
  • Exploring the Grounds = Liked
  • Watching a Movie = Liked
  • Playing Video Games = Liked
  • Birdwatching = Liked
  • Deep Conversation = Disliked
  • Stargazing = Disliked
  • Meditation = Disliked
