Every superhero begins their journey as an ordinary person, but they're often given superpowers to help them rise above the problems that most people face. Spider-Man is no different. Peter Parker starts his life as a socially awkward, shy high school student but is bitten by a radioactive spider while on a science field trip, giving him superhuman speed and strength. This combination of superpowers and human struggles makes him one of the most relatable heroes in comics and movies.

In Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, swinging across New York City is a huge part of the gameplay and helps to sell the fantasy of being the most iconic web-slinging superhero. Whether it's the way you use your momentum to gain height or the way the music kicks in as soon as you start swinging off a skyscraper, the game is well-designed to make the experience of traversing Manhattan feel magical and exciting.

Swinging itself is actually fairly simple — just hold R2 to swing and release, then guide your direction with input on the left thumbstick. But there's more to swinging than that, and it takes some practice to get a feel for how the air and physics work in order to swing like a pro.

Thankfully, there are some tips and tricks you can learn that will help you swing faster, both in the standard arc where you're just hanging from the ground and in the more advanced Point Launch and Point Launch Boost skills. Once you've mastered these moves, you can zip through the city at incredible speeds and take out any of the Rogues Gallery with relative ease.
