You’ve already made the tracker and investigated the Tombstone’s trucks. Now it’s time to check out the Alchemax chemical plant and uncover the villain’s plans. There you’ll find a dozen bikers carrying some secret cargo.
You don’t have to be stealth in this part of a mission if you don’t want to. But still, we recommend you to be sneaky–there are a number of shooters standing far from each other. There is also a good deal of enemies in the courtyard, so it’s better to act in a step-by-step way starting from the northern point of the area.
First, eliminate two shooters in the far corner of the yard who stand on containers. Extended Perch Takedown skill will be really useful in all stealth sections since it increases Perch Takedown range. Leave three bikers near the truck for later–you still have other enemies to fight with.
Move to a post on the eastern side of the yard near the plant corner (see the screenshot above). One biker has taken a stand here, and the other guy comes to him from time to time. Use a Web Throw to yank the first biker towards the containers and pick him off. Wrap the second guard when he’s back.
So now you can go back to those near the truck. Use an ejector to put two bikers aside. When there is enough distance between two enemies, you can web throw both of them. Next, eliminate the biker who is sitting on a container and head to the central part of the area.
If you’ve been following our clues, there should be left five bikers so far: one guy near the gates, two near the truck and two on the left of the plant entrance. Let’s start with the shooter on the eastern side of the building. By gluing him to the lamp post, you’ll make the other guard look for his assistant–now you can beat him up too.
All that’s left is to put two bikers aside by shooting your spider web at the center of the yard and wrap that biker who will decide to stay. You can take out the last pair of enemies by using two consecutive Web Throws. Don’t hesitate, or they will notice you.
Once they’ve all been taken out, search the yellow barrels near the truck which was guarded by two bikers. These barrels contain a toxin which has made Tombstone virtually immortal. It takes these chemicals just a few seconds to affect people.
Before you can properly inspect the barrels, few bikers will appear having, surprise, surprise, inhalers with them! One dose is enough to become immortal for some time: the enemy is almost invulnerable, causes great damage and ignores your attacks.
They have two weaknesses–Web and Finisher. The latter requires only one segment of concentration bar, so feel free to use your costume. Besides, you can stun the enemies with the bikes lying around the area.
As has already been said, the toxin effect doesn’t last long. If you want to reduce your health risks while fighting with invulnerable enemies, stay away from them and beat up the ordinary bikers until the toxic effect reduces.
Many more bikers will start showing up, with guns and unarmed. After destroying the first toxin-inhaling biker, keep an eye out for unarmed enemies–they may use the inhaler too.
When all the bikers are taken out, return to the place where you met the first biker with the inhaler which you’ll find on the ground. Check it out and get ready for another science minigame where you’ll have to match absorption lines with the pattern (see the solution above).
By identifying an unknown substance, Spider-Man will be able to do a counter-drug which counteracts the toxin. You just need to return to the truck full of yellow barrels and push the button. You’ve created the substance for Tombstone’s defeat! Now you just need to test it out...
