How to take a selfie in Spider-Man 2

As mentioned, you can’t take a Selfie the same way you could in the first game. In the previous game, there was a standalone Selfie option in the game’s photo mode, but this time around you have to get a bit creative.

First, you need to enter Photo Mode by pressing the Options button and clicking on Photo Mode in the menu. While in photo mode, you must change the camera type setting to Orbit. Zoom in on Spider-Man using the left analogue stick. With the camera positioned, press Triangle to hide the UI, and then snap your picture using the share button and press confirm on Capture Screen.
