Marvel’s Spider Man 2 PS5: How to Switch Characters

Looking to switch characters in Marvel’s Spider Man 2? We’ve got you covered with our guide on how to switch between Miles & Peter in Spider-Man 2!

One of the biggest selling points in the new Spider-Man game was the ability to switch between two Spider-Men with their own unique sets of abilities. Insomniac Games did a great job making both characters feel very unique. Because of this, it’s only natural that players will likely develop a preference for either Miles Morales or Peter Parker, whether it’s because of their personality or combat capability. Here’s what you need to know to change characters in Spider-Man 2.

How to switch characters in Marvel's Spider Man 2.

Changing characters in Spider-Man 2 is pretty easy! To swap between Peter & Miles, swipe left on your touchpad to open the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man app. From there, hold the square button to switch your current character. You’ll instantly be taken to wherever the other hero currently is! This swapping can be helpful to know when you need to accomplish character-specific missions or challenges, including visiting Aunt May’s grave as Peter.

There are, though, a few instances where you can’t switch between the Spiders. During missions, you’ll almost always be greeted with a message reading “Can’t open FNSM app,” which means you can’t access the app and, subsequently, can’t switch characters. There are also, without spoiling too much, certain situations in the main scenario that will make you unable to switch characters for a while, even in the open world. In both of those situations, the solution is to simply progress and the problem will eventually solve itself!

That’s all you need to know about switching characters in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2! If you’re missing another mechanic, here’s what you need to know about how to fast travel in Spider-Man 2.
