PSA: Web Grabber is the most useful gadget to upgrade in Spiderman 2

Web Grabber is the best gadget.

In Spiderman 2, there are four new gadgets that are all cool and useful, but I and the community at large agree: Web Grabber is the best.

What’s funny is Insomniac Games knows Web Grabber is the best gadget in Marvel’s Spiderman 2 since it’s an early unlock for those who pre-ordered the game. Start using the Web Grabber as soon as it becomes available to you.

Why is Web Grabber the best gadget in Marvel’s Spiderman 2?

Simply put: it controls the entire battlefield by grabbing four (which can be upgraded to six) nearby enemies and pulling them all together into one area. It’s the perfect crowd-control tool for a game that loves to overwhelm you with baddies.

Once all the enemies are gathered together, that’s when I use my abilities. Big AoE attacks like Venom Smash and Spider Rush are great here because they deal big damage to multiple enemies.

After farming Tech Parts, upgrading Web Grabber makes it even better. With upgrades, you’ll pull in environmental objects that deal even more damage to the collected enemies, you can pull in more enemies, and you can even throw the Web Grabber after it’s used as an electric projectile.

If I’m honest, the next best gadget in Spiderman 2 is Web Shooters, especially when paired with the best Suit Tech upgrades. They are great for quickly eliminating enemies close to walls or knocked to the ground. Plus, one shot from a Web Shooter quickly dispatches a powerful late-game green goon.

I use all the gadgets in Marvel’s Spiderman 2 because they are all useful and fun. Upshot is great to get groups of enemies airborne, Sonic Burst is great to knock enemies away, and Ricochet Web… well, Richocet Web isn’t all that great. Even if you are on the highest difficulty, Web Grabber makes every combat encounter besides bosses in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 a walk in the park.
