- Rapid fire web shooters. Shoot enemies near walls to stick them to walls.
During his first eight years as the web-slinging defender of New York, Spider-Man continuously upgraded the Web Shooters, improving them so he could deal with all kinds of threats—including villains like Electro, Vulture, the Rhino, and the Scorpion.
The Web Shooter is the default gadget Spider-Man employs in Marvel's Spider-Man. It is introduced in The Main Event, the opening mission; during the raid on Fisk Tower, Spider-Man uses the latest model for his Web Shooters to incapacitate the Kingpin and his men.
At its most basic, a single shot from the Web Shooter is an effective means of momentarily staggering an enemy. A few consecutive shots can also be used to ensnare a target and make them available as a weight to swing around and knock over other enemies. If an enemy is close to a wall, firing multiple webs at them will cause them to stick to the walls, incapacitating them. The Web Shooter is the most effective way of taking down brutes, who need to be webbed up before they can take damage from hits. It can also incapacitate enemies by webbing them to the ground after they've been knocked over.
Like all other gadgets, the Web Shooter can be upgraded with various tokens throughout the course of the game. The first four upgrades either add more capacity or make the Web Shooter refill faster. The final upgrade makes enemies that have been tied up with web unable to move for a longer period.
