Marvel’s Spider-Man Side Missons Walkthrough: Helping Howard
- Starting location: Chinatown
- Available: Complete Couch Surfing Main Mission
- Rewards: 1,000 XP, 12 Research Tokens
After spending the night at the F.E.A.S.T., Spider-Man will find the homeless man, Howard, right next door on the rooftops. He was evicted, and all of his pigeons were released. In the end only one of 13 pigeons has returned to him.
Your mission is to find the remaining 12 birds. By tackling this challenge you will unblock one more collectible – pigeons. You will be able to find all the pigeons on your HUD, so there is no point in listing their locations.
Once you approach the location of one of the pigeons, you will see a green area on your minimap. That is where the bird is. As soon as the pigeon sees Spider-Man, it will fly off. We have no idea what Howard has been feeding his pigeons with but each of the birds leaves a clear blue mark.
Keep this annoying creature in sight and try to keep up. Use jumping from the points and web zips to keep momentum going. Once you get near the pigeon, press and hold L1 + R1 to grab the bird.
For each pigeon you will be given one Research Token, and by catching all the birds you will get 1,000 XP. Then your ‘collection’ will be seen on the roof where you first saw Howard.
