In the video game The Amazing Spider-Man, the player has a wide variety of suits or skins, they can unlock to put on Spider-Man. All of these suits, however, are purely cosmetic and have no gameplay effect.
Systems[edit | edit source]
PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360[edit | edit source]
To unlock these suits, the player must have first acquired the camera for Spider-Man. Then, search all around Manhattan to find medium-sized, red spider emblems and take a picture of them. A message will appear telling the player they've unlocked the suit. To wear their unlocked suits, they would need to enter Peter's apartment and look into his wardrobe to find all of the player's suits they've found.
There are a few skins that can be unlocked without the camera, however, such as the Party Hat and the Default (No Belt) suit.
On the PC & Wii U, specific game requirements for each suit must be met.
List of suits[edit | edit source]
This suit is exclusive to the PlayStation 3. It is the suit Peter wears in the movie before he dons the true "Amazing Spider-Man" suit.
It includes a beanie and sunglasses covering red cloth. He wears normal, every-day clothes like a jacket and jeans. He hides his Web-Shooters under his jacket sleeves.
It is also available on the Xbox 360 as part of the Lizard Rampage Pack.
Default (No Belt)
The original suit designed for video game includes a belt for Spider-Man to carry his gadgets, such as web ammunition and his camera. However, that belt can be removed by wearing this costume. Other than the belt disappearing, no other cosmetic changes have been made.
To unlock this costume, the player must simply head Spider-Man down to Peter's Apartment, and it will be there in his wardrobe.

This is the default suit for Spider-Man in the video game and requires nothing to have it unlocked, as Peter is wearing it when the game starts.
Celebrate the webhead's 50th birthday with this great party hat. In order to acquire this hat, you must play the game during the month of August. If you don't want to wait that long, it is easier to simply change your Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC date to a day in August.
To put it on, go to Peter's Apartment and hit the correct button while in the wardrobe menu. A "Happy Birthday Spider-Man!" pop-up will appear, asking the player if they want to wear it. By choosing "Yes", the hat will appear atop Spider-Man's head after the pop-up.
This suit is The Amazing Spider-Man's version of the Black Suit. It has the original suit design from the movie, although all the red/blue areas are black, and the web designs are now silver.
The Venom symbiote attached to Peter's suit in the third of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movie trilogy, Spider-Man 3. It allowed Spider-Man to be faster and more agile than never before.
In Raimi's films, Spider-Man's suit's eye color was white. However, it was changed to fit the design of the game, just like the Negative Zone suit. The rest of the suit looks similar to the classic Spider-Man outfit, but all colors have been made a sleek black, and the web designs are silver.
Despite the suit being from Venom's origin, neither Peter nor anyone else called the suit "Symbiote Suit" or "Venom Suit". It is simply referred to as "Black Suit" or "The Suit" in the movie.
In other Spider-Man media, when Spider-Man entered the Negative Zone, his suit color transformed into this silver-and-black color. It allowed him to become practically invisible. However, wearing this suit does not increase stealthiness in the game.
The suit is the classic Spider-Man suit, but the colored red areas are now black, the blue is silver and the black are silver.
This suit was created by Peter to combat the Hobgoblin's sonic Screams, the suit warps light and sound around it, rendering it invisible. However, none of its features are present in-game.
The suit is a full, tar-black colored suit with a giant, glowing, neon-green spider emblem crawling down his legs and arms. His eye-pieces and foot designs are also glowing neon-green.
Scarlet Spider 2012
This suit was actually worn by Kaine, a clone of Peter Parker in other Spider-Man media and in 2012 comic.
The suit is a red and black version of Spider-Man's original. The eye-pieces and most of the rest of the costume, like the chest down, is red, while the shoulders and some of the back are black in color.
In comics, Spider-Man joins Reed Richards' (Mr. Fantastic) Future Foundation program to fill the spot after Johnny Storm's (Human Torch) apparent death. When the Foundation would go on stealth missions to be unseen, they would invert their original Future Foundation suits (primarily white, black emblems/minor designs) so that they would be harder to see.
Therefore, this suit is primarily black with a big, white spider on Spidey's chest and back. Although this suit was made to enhance stealthiness, the player is no more stealthy than they would be while wearing any other suit.
While Spider-Man tries to rescue the mutant Synch from villain Plantman in the comic The Amazing Spider-Man #437, he is sprayed in the face by mutagenic flowers. In result, Spidey's body was transformed into a half-man, half-spider hybrid, making him truly live up to his primary alias.
Half of his face is that of a spider's head, giving him an additional eight tiny eyes, along with fangs and claws for hands.
This suit is somewhat like the original Spider-Man suit, but it has been somewhat altered in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.
The suit is Spider-Man's original colors - red, blue, black and white - but with minor changes from the suit appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- All of these costumes have no effect on gameplay.
- Spider-Man does not wear a belt in the movie. However, after the events of the movie, Peter realizes that he can't hold all of his items and fight crime at the same time. Therefore, Beenox designers added a belt to Spider-Man's default costume.
- The Cross-Species Spider-Man suit is truly named "Spider-Morphosis" suit. However, in-game, it's known as "Cross-Species Spider-Man".
- There was recently a way to easily make all suits unlockable before their original release time, and that was to set your system's date to any day in December. After that, most of the suits will be available for unlocking. This is because, after the release date for the game, an emblem is supposed to be placed into the game for the player to find and unlock that week's suit. However, if the system thinks all of those weeks have already passed (by the player fast-forwarding time), all of the Marks will already be in the game.
- There are a few suits that can be unlocked without finding emblems.
- Despite the Black Suit being from the Venom symbiote in origin, nobody in Spider-Man 3 refers to Spider-Man's new suit as the "Symbiote Suit" or even the "Black Suit". It is simply named "The Suit."
- The Party Hat will never fall off Spider-Man's head, even if he is upside-down. This is very much likely so that the player won't "lose" the hat.
- Only a few of these costumes can suffer cosmetic damage like the default costumes do (Belted Default, Default, New Black, Classic Black, Negative Zone, and Classic), and certain costumes damage differently than others.
