Performing the parry move is a lot easier than you may realize. In Spiderman 2, how you can parry is by pushing the ‘L1’ button when the warning indicator flashes. When Spider-Man is in combat, his spidey senses will let him know when he’s about to be hit. This is indicated by a white circle appearing.

If you press the ‘L1’ button as this indicator pops up, Spider-Man will parry the attack. This has him pushing back against the attacker, while dodging has Spider-Man swerve out of the way from an attack. They both serve similar purposes, but sometimes parrying is better.

You’ll eventually come across heavy attacks that cannot be dodged. In these instances, you can only parry. Once you notice the attackers show a yellow indicator turning redthat signifies a heavy attack. Parry it to block, because dodging won’t work.

If you decide to hold the ‘L1’ buttonSpider-Man will perform a blocking move. This helps to reduce oncoming damage. Hold for block, and tap at the right moment to parry.
