Mysterio has been pulling the strings from the shadows, but it’s time to bring him down. This guide will show you how to unlock and defeat the Mysterio boss fight in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Unlocking the Mysterio Boss Fight
Before you can take on Mysterio, you must complete all 8 Mysterium challenges. These challenges are automatically marked on your map as you progress through the main story. You can replay the Mysteriums as many times as you want, and you don’t need to earn high scores to unlock the boss fight.
After finishing the Mysteriums with at least a bronze score, a final mission called the ‘Grand Finale’ will become available. This quest will take you back to the original Mysterium located on Coney Island.
Entering the Illusion
In the ‘Grand Finale’ mission, Mysterio will trap Miles Morales in another illusion. You’ll find yourself inside a giant snow globe version of New York City. In this illusion, you’ll battle flying Mysterio clones with unique powers.
To escape the illusion, you’ll need to clear multiple waves of enemies. Miles will swing through the city, dodging Mysterio’s giant fists as they’re summoned.
Mysterio Boss Fight
The true Mysterio appears after clearing the first group of enemies. In this boss fight, Mysterio will fly high in the city, firing green lasers and summoning tracking skulls. Miles can throw the skulls back at Mysterio to deal damage. After damaging Mysterio, he’ll charge and unleash an area-of-effect blast. Circle Mysterio, dodge his attacks, and strike from the sky until you destroy the illusion.
After defeating Mysterio, you’ll discover that there is no escape from the illusion in the hall. Turn around to find an exit leading to another arena.
Final Arena Battle
In the next Coney Island arena, you’ll have to fight a swarm of Mysterios. These Mysterios possess the same powers as the boss and there are now seven of them. They share a health meter, so you can swap targets. Keep moving to hit-and-run each of the Mysterios. Deal enough damage to one, and they’ll disappear permanently.
Upon defeating the final illusion, you’ll return to the main chamber of the Mysterium. Punch through the back doors to discover Mysterio’s true fate. It turns out Mysterio isn’t the mastermind. Two programmers working with Mysterio stole his image and programmed his Mysteriums to kidnap people.
For completing this series of quests, you’ll unlock the ‘Behind the Masks’ trophy and earn a new costume for Miles Morales, allowing you to become a Master of Illusions.
Now, you’re ready to dive into this exciting bonus boss fight in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and uncover the secrets hidden within Mysteriums. Enjoy your journey through the world of illusions!
