Astoria is in the north of the in-game map of New York City with ten different side activities. All of them are introduced in the main quest. Check out the overview map below if you’re just looking for a single item or go through it step-by-step to achieve 100% completion in Astoria. Those activities will give you tech parts, rare tech parts, and city tokens. You will get additional Hero Tokens for a 100% district completion.
Some of these activities can be started with the FNSM App – The Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App by swiping your controller or by opening it in the in-game menu.
Finishing every single activity in the whole of New York will reward you with new suits.
There are two Photo Ops activities in Astoria. Here’s where. To take the photo swipe up on your controller to open up photo mode. Then, move your camera until you see the notification “Subject in Focus” – now you can take the picture.
THE MASKED CHALLENGER – PHOTO OP
In the north of Astoria, near the bridge crossing to the island that also belongs to Astoria, there is a fight club. In front of it is a man with a mask called “Luchador”. Take a picture of him.
STEP UP TO THE PLATE – PHOTO OP
Now, going over to Astoria’s island: On the northern tip of this island is a small park where people are having a relaxed picnic. Take a picture of that.
In Astoria, there is a single FNSM Request known as “Monster in Queens.” It begins in the northern part of the district.
MONSTER IN QUEENS
To start the mission, go to Alma’s house and speak with her. Alma is blind and will inform you about a monster in her backyard.
Search for blue glowing tracks that lead out of the backyard. Follow the tracks and perform another scan at the location of the broken fence. You can interact with the turquoise goo on the floor.
To proceed, solve a puzzle by clicking on the pink corruptions as indicated by the red “X” marks in the screenshot below.
Follow the trail into the woods. It leads to a stream. Scan the area once more. There are tracks near a broken car. Also, examine the broken car. Behind it, there is another puddle of gunk.
Follow the trail of gunk to reach this location. There’s a large paw imprint on the floor and a Hunter-Beast concealed between the dumpsters. Approach it.
Ganke will hack the Hunter Beast. Then, two Hunter Birds appear and the Beast starts hunting them. Spider-Man tracks it down to a church where you have to fight the hunters. After the fight, remove the arrow from the beast’s side and return to Alma, who happily adopts it as a guide dog.
The Astoria District, located in the very northeast of the in-game New York City map, contains only one hidden stash.
This stash sits atop a tall building in the central southern part of the Astoria District.
HOW TO ACCESS THE PROWLER STASH?
To locate the Stash, begin by scanning the area with R3. Subsequently, hold down the L2 button to uncover the initial code. Then, manipulate both the left and right controller sticks into the highlighted area, maintaining this position until the code stabilizes.
This will reveal an area where the metal wall needs to be yanked. Position yourself where Miles is standing in the screenshot below, and then proceed to pull the metal wall towards you using L1+R1.
WHERE ARE THE ELECTRIC PANELS?
Upon removing the metal wall, a door will now be visible in its place. To gain access, you’ll need to locate four Electric Panels/Circuit Boxes and overload them using Chain Lightning L1-Square. Keep in mind that these boxes are on a timer, so you must act swiftly before they reset.
Let’s pinpoint the locations of the Electric Panels:
The first one is positioned right at the entrance of the Prowler Stash.
The second is just above the Prowler Stash room. Climb the stash room’s roof.
Climb up the wall where the second Electric Panel is attached to and you get to the area with the third circuit box:
The last Electric Panel is on the very top of the highest building in the purple Prowler Stash area.
The best way to do this is to work your way from the top to the bottom.
COLLECT THE PROWLER STASH
Now you can enter the Prowler Stash room and open the purple safe on the wall.
The Flame is a series of 4 Side Missions that span across New York City. The one located in Astoria is the third mission in the line-up.
I KNEW YOU HAD IT IN YOU
“I Knew You Had It in You” is the third mission in “The Flame” Side Mission Story. Following Spider-Man and Wraith’s successful cleanup of a former hospital in Chinatown, their attention now turns to a hospital located in the Astoria District in the northeast.
Wraith has left a message on the roof to “Hurry Up”. As Spider-Man arrives at the new location, he finds unconscious cultists and needs to find a way inside. Head to the rooftop where you will encounter numerous cultists to battle. Additionally, the entrance can be found here.
Follow the stairs downstairs. Keep an eye out for reference points on the ceiling, indicating areas where you can crawl deeper into the building. Reach a room featuring a map of Brooklyn. Once inside, activate your scanner using the L2 button. Scan the Brooklyn map, take a look at the Oscorp floorplan displayed on the wall, and observe the whiteboard. Lastly, delve into the information provided in the showcased book. Exit the room through the only available opening.
In the next area, eliminate all the cultists to assist Wraith/Yuri by removing the debris on the wall. Following the subsequent cutscene, you will engage in a battle against Yuri.
ALL SPIDER-BOTS LOCATIONS IN ASTORIA
There are four Spider-Bots in the Astoria District. Check out the overview map below to see where they are.

This crawler is on top of a building at the south of Astoria island.
Head to the southeast of the Astoria Map. There is a building with a red-bricked tower. On the very top of one of its walls is Mangaverse.
Another one that is just hanging in the air. Look for it near the bridge in the west of the Astoria map. To get it, look for the highest point nearby. Then push yourself in the air with R2+X. Then, use the wingsuit to get close.
The Astoria Symbiote Nest is at the park in the northeast of the Astoria district world map. There are two hearts that you have to protect after you’ve placed the bomb.
