All Black Cat Stakeout locations and solutions

There are 12 Black Cat Stakeouts in Marvel's Spider-Man. The video below shows the locations and solutions to all of them. The first one is part of the story and unmissable. The remaining 11 get marked on the map. However, the hard part is finding Black Cat's hidden dolls that are scattered around the city. Once you reach the photo spot, you must find the hidden doll in the viewable area. After collecting all of them, you must find Black Cat's hideout, which is shown on the map from a quest marker. Once you find Black Cat's hideout, you will get the Dark Suit and "Cat Prints" trophy.

All lab puzzle solutions

In Marvel's Spider-Man, you can go to the lab at Octavius Industries and complete ten Spectrograph Research Projects and ten Circuit Projects. These are short puzzles that require you to find DNA sequences and wire electric circuits. You earn XP, Research tokens, and the "A Bit Of A Fixer-Upper" trophy as rewards. Additional projects become unlocked throughout the main story. Complete all story missions to unlock all projects. After completing the story, you can still go back to the lab in free-roam mode to complete the missing projects.

Easy "Hero For Higher" trophy

Avengers Tower is the tallest building and highest point in the game. It is found in the middle of the "Upper East Side" district. It has a big "A" at its top and stands out because of its size. Climb to the top to find two red lights on the tower. Climb onto the red lights to get the "Hero For Higher" trophy.

Easy "Hug It Out" trophy

You automatically unlock Trip Mines in the Act 2: "Dual Purpose" main mission. Reach this mission to unlock the Tripe Mine gadget. The quickest way to farm this is in the Fisk Hideout of Harlem (if it has already been completed, you can replay it at any time by returning to the hideout). There are multiple groups of enemies standing close together. Shoot a Trip Mine at one enemy that is facing another. The trip mine will cause them to get knocked together. Select "Restart Checkpoint" to repeat and farm ten pairs. If you run out of Trip Mines, use the Anti-Ock Suit's ability to "Resupply". It instantly recharges your Trip Mines when they are the actively selected gadget (it is the suit you get for completing the story). You can farm 2-3 pairs per try. With checkpoint restart, you can do this in 1-2 minutes.

Easy "Sticky And Tricky" trophy

First, buy the "Air Tricks" skill from the Webslinger skill tree. Then, go to a tall building, jump off, and hold Triangle + Circle and press Up, Right, Down, Left to perform four unique tricks before you land and get the "Sticky And Tricky" trophy. Perform one rotation of each trick, as they only last one second. From the tallest buildings in the game, you have more than enough time before hitting the ground.

Easy "With Great Power..." trophy

Ben Parker's grave is at the cemetery in the northwest (top left) corner of Harlem. When you go there, press R3 to highlight the grave and get the "With Great Power..." trophy.
