Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Scream Boss Fight Guide: How to beat
There are four phases to this fight, so be ready for a long and hellish battle. However, before you test your mettle against Scream, be sure to upgrade your tech as much as possible. Since this fight is divided into different phases, we have divided this guide in the same way too.
The fight will start with Scream delivering two lethal swings at you. Don’t worry, though. You can parry them as usual. Note that this will be a regular attack move from her, so be on your guard. After the swing attack, comes the crush one. Dodge it too if you aren’t keen on dying fast. For her third move, you can expect a sweeping, wide-haired attack. And this one can only be properly dodged by jumping up in the air. You can dodge the attack on the ground too, but that will only save you from one direction of her attack, leaving you wide open to the one from the opposite direction. She will also perform a ranged attack, but that one is easy to deal with if you pay attention to the fight. Like any other boss fight, the motto here is to dodge and attack.
During the first phase, take a good look at her surroundings. Whenever she appears to be near a car, set off its alarms. You can do that by pulling the car door using your webs. When the alarm goes off, it will disorient Scream for a few seconds, which you can use to dish out some attacks. When her health starts going down a little, MJ will try to come out, but Scream will regain her control, and afterward, it will be the start of the next phase.
The second phase is nothing special if you are familiar with Scream’s move set from the first phase. The only unique thing about this phase is that she will ditch her spike attack for a tendril attack. You can just parry it as usual. Keep dodging and attacking her whenever possible. Stagger her at every opportunity you get, as she happens to be quite vulnerable to it.
This is when the boss fight starts getting hard. When Scream’s health has gone down a bit more, MJ will resurface once again, this time arguing with Peter. Following this, Scream will take control and start attacking you with even more speed and precision. Her attacks will now be faster, and you will have very little time to react. You can also expect a new heavy slam attack in her move set. Evade her attacks as best as you can, and chip away at her health bit by bit. MJ will resurface once more, and you will get your usual dialogue. Afterward, it will be the final phase of this boss fight.
This one will be where Scream will be at her deadliest. Always look out for a grab attack from her. Don’t let her grab you, or you will be getting slammed and crushed. In the last phase, dodge only if you think you will be able to. Otherwise, the next best thing will be to simply block her attack. While this will not make you immune to damage, it’s still miles better than feeling the full force of her attacks and going down in just a few moves. Furthermore, always try to find something that can create noise. This is your best option for disorienting Scream, which will help you land some attacks of your own. Just keep going on with this method of blocking and disorienting until you get the boss to no health.
When Scream’s health is low enough, MJ will finally set herself free from the symbiotes’ control, and Scream will be defeated. Now, you can continue on with the game but do expect much tougher fights later in the story. Well, now that you know how to beat Scream, why not learn how to take selfies in the game?
