Spider-Man Miles Morales Gadgets guide

Spider-Man Miles Morales is almost out now on PS4 and PS5, and this guide details all the gadgets and upgrades that are available in-game.

There are 4 Gadgets with 4 total purchasable upgrades to collect each. Spoilers continue on below this paragraph in the form of descriptions and costs. Read at your own peril!

Still with us? Great! Unlocking a gadget upgrade will require one or two resources, detailed below:

  • Activity Tokens: These are obtained by using Ganke’s app and completing red icon crimes. Crimes will also pop up on the map if you’re near one. Finally, you’ll receive these from side-missions too. You can gain bonus tokens by completing optional objectives (air launches, dodges, etc).
  • Tech Parts: These are obtained by looting Underground Caches. They’re displayed on the map by icons that look like chests. Roxxon and Underground gang hideouts also sport the parts.

Got all that? Excellent — here’s each gadget, and what’s involved to upgrade it
