Parrying is one of the most important part of your defensive toolkit in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. As you continue to fight crimes, you will notice that enemies are relentless. This is why knowing how to parry can be a lifesaver. Once you have learned how to parry, you should easily be able to create counter-attack opportunities for big damage. However, it is important to note that you cannot parry every attack in the game. In this guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about how to parry in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.


Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Parrying

Similar to FromSoftware games, parrying in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is all about the timing. Whenever you are about to get hit, you will notice an on-screen prompt. You simply need to press the parry button i.e. L1 as an attack is about to land. It is important to tap the L1 button when the on-screen indicator is red — doing it too early or too late will fail it. When done right, you will not only negate all the damage but also create an opening for a counter-attack. You will, however, need to practice quite a lot to be able to do it consistently.

Another important thing that you need to know is that the ability to parry enemy attacks is not something that is available from the beginning. You will need to progress through the campaign a little in order to unlock it — during One Thing At A Time mission. Until then, you will need to rely on dodging and nothing else. However, once it becomes available, you should rely on it whenever you can.
