Spider-Man 2 features over 60 suits for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, all coming with special abilities and even crazier looks. However, the Black suit is a bit different than the rest, due to how heavily tied is to the game's story.

So, in order to get the Black suit in Spider-Man 2, you simply need to progress through the game's missions until you reach a point where Harry Osborn will straight up give you the powers of the symbiote.

Now, we won't go into much more detail than those we've already shared, but that is the gist of it. If you've been keeping your eyes peeled and played previous Spider-Man games in the Insomniac universe, it won't come as a shock that Peter Parker is introduced to the symbiote (and in turn the Black suit) via long-time friend Harry Osborn.

What this means for the story, well, you'll have to play it and find out!
