Spider-Man 2 puts you up against many enemies, and The Lizard is one of them. Kraven has changed Dr. Conners back into the Lizard, and you must change him back by using the antidote. But before you can do that, you need to defeat him in combat. In this Spider-Man 2 guide, I go over how you can defeat the Lizard boss.


How To Beat The Lizard Boss In Spider-Man 2

Before taking on the Lizard, we recommend equipping your Symbiote powers since these are very effective against the boss. If you have enough Tech Parts, then you should also upgrade the Upshot and your Web-Shooters.

The fight with the Lizard boss in Spider-Man 2 is made up of three different phases. The following is what you need to know about each phase and how you can defeat the Lizard.

Phase One

  • Beware of the Crush Attack: Most of the attacks the boss uses can be dodged or parried, but the Crush Attack can only be dodged. The game will prompt you of this special attack, so be sure to press Circle.
  • Open vents: In the first arena, there are a couple of vents that you can open. If you do this right, then you will stun the boss. You can then deal damage. The vents can also be used to interrupt the attacks of the boss.

Phase Two

Use your Web Shooters: During this phase, the boss uses similar attacks as phase one, but it can climb onto walls. You can use your Web-Shooters to bring it down. When the Lizard tries to pull the webs off its face, you can move in to deal damage. Press the Triangle button to close in quickly, or use Upshot if you want to stay away.

Phase Three

  • Dodge the Roar attack: During the last phase of the fight, the boss can use a roar attack, which you need to dodge since it can stun the symbiote.
  • Use Vents: Like the previous phase, you can use vents to stagger the Lizard in Spider-Man 2.
