Marvel’s Spider-Man Side Missons Walkthrough: Tombstone. Let's Get Ready to...
- Starting location: Harlem
- Available: Complete Tombstone: What’s He Building in There Side Mission
- Rewards: 3,500 XP
After tracking down Tombstone’s truck and developing an antidote to his ‘’immortality drugs’’, Spider-Man decides to get to the villain’s garage in central Harlem. Spidey will find him alone, having a drink. How poetic!
They are definitely not going to have long conversations and will get straight into fight. It’s impossible to do any damage to Tombstone when he’s immortal, so the only chance for Spider-Man to destroy him is to maul the enemy right before giving an antidote.
But it’s not that easy: Tombstone gives really painful and quick blows. His special combo with several punches, kicks and hammer strikes produce a giant shock wave. Stay back or jump over it to stay unharmed.
Speaking of tactics, it’s better to stay away from Tombstone. As compared to Fisk or other enemies with such a physique, you may attack the boss, and he won’t block your blows. However, this leads to suffering some damage from a counterattack (see the paragraph above).
We recommend you to shoot him with the web shooter or throw something heavy. This will stun him for a few seconds. As soon as the boss recovers, jump out quickly not to be kicked or hit by his hammer.
After some time, Tombstone will send his men in to fight, and they don’t hesitate to use their magic inhalers. Focus on them but still keep an eye on the boss. As in the previous mission, you’ll want to wait until the toxic effect reduces.
A few tips on this stage: firstly, look around–some motorcycle riders can show up and knock you over. Secondly, use their parked bikes for fighting. Feel free to throw different objects to resist the attack.
When all the Tombstone’s men are knocked out, he’ll start complaining of getting tired, and this is your chance. Show everything you have – gadgets, costume, heavy objects and finishers – to exhaust the enemy and make him inhale the antidote.
After being flaked out for some time, injured Tombstone will stand up with fire chains in his hands. He launches pretty long combos, so it’s better to keep the maximum distance, otherwise you’ll need to dodge rapidly and repeatedly – the boss can make three-hit combos with a pause.
Again, your strategy is to stay back and freeze him before the attack. Since there are not many objects left, you’ll have to use a Web Strike and the webs shooters.
Web Attack can be used only when Tombstone is stunned or can’t move. If not, Spider-Man will be beaten up while trying to attack him from a shorter distance. Despite the spread of fire, there is no need to rush. Keep out of trouble and wait till you can attack and counterattack.
As a result, Tombstone will be completely exhausted. Now he belongs in prison, so production and distribution of drugs is temporarily stopped. Spider-Man will get a well-deserved reward for helping police with arresting one more dangerous criminal.
