No matter if you are playing as Peter or Miles in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, very few moves will be more useful in combat than the ability to throw enemies around, as doing so can help in crowd control, as well as allow you to extend combos and set up targets for webbing.

But how can you throw enemies in the game? Here’s how to throw enemies in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

How to Throw Enemies in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

You can throw enemies in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 by holding △ while at arm’s reach of one of them. Like the Swing Kick —which can be performed by holding ▢ while in the air— using the throw is a must when fighting atop buildings. When in close quarters, I recommend that you use the move to send targets toward walls before using your web shooters to glue them to it.

The throw can also be extremely effective if performed either at the end of a combo or after a Web Yank. The Web Yank will allow you to propel yourself toward an enemy in order to close in fast and can be performed by holding while far from your target. After unlocking the Web Whip Skill from the Shared Skill Tree, if the enemy targeted by a Web Yank is holding a weapon, you will be able to yank it away and then hit them with it by tapping R1 repeatedly.

Now that you know how to throw enemies in the game and in order to fully improve your skills when on the field, I highly recommend that you also check out how to effectively parry incoming attacks in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
