(Spoilers ahead for both the game and Avengers: Infinity War.) If you’re still a little raw after the brutal ending of Avengers: Infinity War, then seeing this suit in action in the PS4-exclusive Spider-Man title may either make you very happy (yay this costume is great and I can pretend everything is OK with Peter Parker) or very, very sad (oh god it just reminds me of that last scene with Tony Stark MY FEELINGS). Either way, the Iron Spider suit stands as one of the most visually striking in the game, and it makes swinging through the skyscrapers of New York just that little bit cooler.
Unsurprisingly, this suit’s power mimics the one seen in the movie, and sprouts four mechanical arms from Spidey’s back when activated. Within the game, these arms add extra power to Spidey’s attacks, allowing you to bust through even the strongest enemies’ defenses (including shielded foes and those pesky brutes), as well as hit multiple enemies at once. When you’re surrounded and need a quick way to land some hits regardless of the enemy types around you, this suit’s Iron Arms power is a lifesaver.
The Iron Spider Suit unlocks about two-thirds of the way into the game, and when looking at the suits list, it’s the 17th you’ll have access to. The first thing you’ll need to do to nab the Iron Spider is reach level 31. After that, you’ll need to have four crime tokens accumulated, as well as three base tokens and three challenge ones. Once you have those, then Stark’s hopefully-not-final creation for young Peter Parker is yours for the taking.
