Complete Guide: All Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man App Requests in Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man 2 brings back the beloved Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man (FNSM) app, providing you with a variety of side missions across the city.

Note: Among these missions is ‘Howard’, a mission revisiting a character from the previous two Spider-Man games. We have already provided a detailed guide on how to assist Howard. Completing ‘Howard’, along with all other FNSM app requests, will reward you with the Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man achievement.
