The Chinatown District is in the center-south of the in-game map of New York City with seven 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 at Chinatown. 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 of Marko’s memory crystals in Chinatown. Here’s where they are.
This crystal is in the center north of Chinatown, on top of a building. Defeat the Sandmen and interact with the crystal.
The second crystal is in the southwest of Chinatown, just at the border to the Financial District. It’s on the ground floor in an alley.
There are two Photo Ops activities in Chinatown. 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.
CHECKMATE – PHOTO OP
Two people in the northwest of Chinatown are playing chess: A newcomer and a local chess champion. Who’s going to win?
THE LITTLE TAIYAKI CART – PHOTO OP
In the northeast of Chinatown, there is a food cart near the water. Take a picture of it!
The Flame is an engaging side mission storyline consisting of four missions. It kicks off in the Financial District and continues in Chinatown as the second Flame mission in the series.
“The Flame: Everything Burns?” is the second installment in a thrilling four-part Side Mission series. Following the hospital incident, Wraith reaches out to Spider-Man, revealing that the Flame has taken refuge in Chinatown. Access the building through a rooftop door adorned with a distinctive red firehand symbol.
Once you’re inside, join forces with Wraith to swiftly take down the cultists. Look out for a photo on the table that you can interact with in the same room. Furthermore, crawl into a vent located in that room, which will guide you to the next area. In this new space, you will encounter and defeat another group of cultists. Please note that the door to the next section is currently locked.
To unlock the door, begin by scanning the surrounding area using L2. Explore the large whiteboard near the locked entrance and examine the graffiti on the wall that says “The Unworthy Hide Everywhere”. Moreover, there are four flames featuring four names displayed on a nearby wall. To progress, begin your investigation of the unconscious cultists individually, searching for the appropriate tattoos that will grant access through the door.
Proceed to the next area by entering the door. Engage and defeat additional cultists while ensuring the safety of their captives.
To progress to the next room, navigate through the opening above the “Intensive Care Unit” Door. Engage in combat with additional cultists, then conduct another scan using L2 to spot a mechanism for unlocking the cells. Follow the path of the cell wiring, leading you to a machine situated on stage. Interact with the machine to liberate the prisoners.
After completing the cutscene and engaging in a fight, use the combination L2 + R2 to forcefully open the doors of the Quarantine Wing. Proceed to engage in further encounters. Due to the obstruction, the imprisoned individuals are unable to exit. Ascend above the doors of the Reception/Lobby elevator and kick open another door to confront the cultists within the cafeteria. Afterward, the way forward is clear, ensuring the prisoners’ successful escape.
EMF EXPERIMENT – Little Tokyo: Plant Science
Located on the rooftops in the northern reaches of the Chinatown district, the experiment beckons. Initiate it by interacting with the experiment station.
COLLECT PLANT SAMPLES
After receiving instructions from Dr. Foster, Peter is tasked with gathering nearby plant samples and utilizing the gene splicer. To commence this process, it’s essential to conduct a thorough scan of the area. This scan will highlight the plant roots, guiding Peter towards the accessible plants. Among these, you’ll find oranges, berries, and what appears to be a weed-like specimen.
GENE SPLICER – SOLUTION
Once you’ve got all three plant samples, head back to the Gene Splicer on the rooftop’s EMF Experiment station. The minigame is a bit like playing “Catan”. Here’s how it works: each card you place in the four remaining spots has lines on its sides – either four, three, two, or one. When you put down the cards, just make sure the lines match up.
Right below the “Plant Attributes” title, remember to use at least two plant cards and one “H” card.
Place them like this to solve the puzzle:
WATER THE PLANTS
After the successful combination of attributes, Peter has to plant a new seed. Yank the valve at the highlighted water tank with L1+R1.
As the water starts to run through the old pipes, the pipe will start to leak. Plug them by shooting webs R1. You sometimes have to yank something away that blocks pipe access. The leaking pipes are highlighted when you scan with R3.
The experiment is a success, when you plug all the holes and the plants are watered.
ALL SPIDER-BOTS LOCATIONS IN CHINATOWN
There are three Spider-Bots in the Chinatown District. Check out the overview map below to see where they are.
High up in the air, near the Williamsburgh bridge, there is a bot. No idea how it got there. Sit on the highest water tank you can find. Then use R2+X to push yourself high in the air. Then open your wingsuit to fly to the Spider-Bot.
SPIDER-ARMOUR MK II
Look for a big, colorful graffiti on a building’s wall in the west of Chinatown. The spider seems to like it, too!
Spider-Woman is crawling on a white building wall in the center of Chinatown.
The Mysterium is called “Fight on Time” and it’s in the northwest corner of Chinatown.
Use 6 Finishers on enemies (Triangle+Square)
Gold: < 3:30
Silver: < 5:00
Bronze: > 5:00
This Unidentified Targets side activity is in the center-north of Chinatown. Look for two metal birds cycling a tall building. Get to the roof and interact with the transmitter. You then have to follow the bird through the wind canal before it escapes. In the slipstream, you just have to steer left and right to follow it.
The Chinatown Symbiote Nest is in the southeast of the Chinatown map. The heart is just below a police car. Move it with L1+R1. Then, you can place the sonic bomb. Defend it until the time runs out.
