TWO Spider-Men? Are we seeing things or is Marvel's Spider-Man 2 yet another pointing Spider-Men meme? For the PS5's latest superhero adventure, both Peter and Miles have returned with a whole bag of new tricks and moves. So it's only right that you update your own gaming arsenal with some new gear to fully appreciate web-slinging and glide-suiting around New York City's additional two boroughs East of the river. Here's the best gear you can get for Marvel's Spider-Man 2.
The best gear for Marvel's Spider-Man 2
HyperX Cloud III wireless headset
The freedom of swinging and gliding your way through the streets of Manhattan (and across the East River to bits of Spider-Men home turf in Brooklyn and Queens) is the foundational joy of Marvel's Spider-Man 2. And what better way to revel in that same freedom than to ditch the web-like tethers of your own with a fresh pair of wireless cans. The HyperX Cloud III wireless headset uses a 2.4GHz dongle plugged into your PS5's USB-A or C ports to give you crystal clear audio clarity wherever you're playing from – even upside down from the ceiling, if that's your style. The 53mm angled drivers give plenty of depth to capture the wind rushing past your spider-ears, and a 120-hour battery life will let you keep exploring until you complete all those side quests you were just going to do one of.
HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 (PS5)
If you don't mind tethering to your DualSense controller, the HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 offers a similar amount of freedom on a budget more appropriate for the freelance photojournalist who seems to only get work when there's a Spider-Man to snap. The premium leatherette ear cushions keep you comfortable, while a wet weight of just 300g means you can play long into the night catching bad guys. On-ear volume controls mean you don't need to fiddle in the PS5's settings menu if you find an action scene a bit too loud – doubly useful if you're trying not to wake anyone else in the house up on your night-time vigilante missions.
HyperX ChargePlay Duo (PS5)
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 isn't a particularly long game, but if you're going to enjoy those haptic adaptive triggers on the DualSense and do every side mission for the platinum trophy, you'll need to recharge your controllers between sessions. Make it easier and tidy your gaming space up by investing in the HyperX ChargePlay Duo for PS5. A nice display stand for two controllers when not in use ensures you always have at least one ready to go for when you get the dreaded (and surprisingly frequent) controller disconnect message – not what you want in the middle of taking down a mutated crocodile scientist. Or any other time, for that matter.
