How to Complete The ‘Slack Line’ Trophy After Beating Spider-Man 2

Completing the 'Slack Line' Trophy after beating Spider-Man 2 is notoriously challenging. Here are the best methods we found for Web Line takedowns in the open world.

The Slack Line Trophy in Spider-Man 2 is tricky to achieve once you’ve beaten the game, especially with 100% completion. With no way to replay missions, finding enemies for takedowns seems like an impossible task.

We’ve webbed this guide together to help you earn Slack Line in Spider-Man 2’s post-game.

How to Earn The ‘Slack Line’ Trophy in Spider-Man 2’s Post-Game

The Slack Line Trophy in Spider-Man 2 requires you to perform stealth takedowns on 25 enemies from a Web Line. This is best done during the story’s many stealth segments, though with no way to replay them (yet), we’re going to need to get creative.

If you’ve beaten Spider-Man 2 but haven’t tackled all its optional activities, then challenging Hunter Bases and Hunter Blinds as Miles is your best bet for completing the Spider-Man 2 Slack Line Trophy post-game. Hunter Bases, in particular, are rich with enemies and opportunities for Web Line takedowns. I have personally found that you can easily get above ten stealth takedowns at some of these bases like the Motorpool if you are careful with how you approach tackling them.

Earning ‘Slack Line’ With 100% Completion

For fellow 100% completionists, this will be a little trickier but still completely manageable. Firstly, switch your Challenge Level (difficulty) to Friendly Neighbourhood and switch to Miles. This allows you to quickly dispatch Symbiotes and stealth away to take down human foes.

Look for Crimes in the city involving human enemies, like Hunters. Far easier said than done, I know. Take down any Symbiotes involved, then turn invisible and jump to high ground. Set up a Web Line and carefully take out opponents below by pressing Square when they’re marked as Safe.

I highly recommend picking up Web Line Double Takedown from the Shared Skill Tree, as you can pick up two enemies simultaneously. That’s an extra takedown and far less chance of being spotted again.

To create a Web Line in Spider-Man 2, hold L2 while perched on the edge of a building or platform and press Triangle while pointing at a surface. For example, between two buildings or from a roof to a lamp post.

If you can’t get into a good spot for a takedown, you can use a Web Line as a starting point for another Web Line, just like a Spider would build its web. To perform a Stealth Takedown from a Web Line, press R3 to check if an enemy is Safe, then press Square when they’re in range.

If finding enough enemies to perform stealth takedowns on is proving too much — and I totally get why it would be — then you can always wait for the upcoming New Game Plus update.

Is Spider-Man 2 Easy to Platinum?

Yes, Spider-Man 2 is easier than a lot of games to platinum thanks to the fact that you can’t miss any of the trophies during your playthrough. This means that you will always be able to swing back through the city at any point and collect whichever trophies you still need to get. It won’t take you too long to platinum either, if you’re playing the game on and off for a week after the story completion, you should have the platinum in no time.

Getting this platinum trophy will be even easier now that you know how to get the Spider-Man 2 Slack Line trophy post-game much simpler.
