Resources are collected and used in Marvel's Spider-Man series by players in order to craft various items, such as gadgets and suits. There are six different types of tokens, each with their own collection requirements.
Located in Peter's hidden backpacks found throughout New York City, these are the easiest to obtain. Opening a backpack will award tokens and usually some sort of memento that relates to Spider-Man lore.
Introduced in "Keeping the Peace", Crime Tokens are obtained by interrupting street crimes that Spider-Man comes across on various missions. These crimes can be discovered initially via the intel provided by Yuri Watanabe; later, players can scan their environment () after syncing with Surveillance Towers. Crime Tokens are among the easiest to obtain
Introduced in "Landmarking", Landmark Tokens are obtained by swinging to a notable landmark and taking a high-quality enough picture. These tokens are easy to obtain, but the use for them is relatively small.
Research Tokens are obtained in three ways. The first is by completing the projects puzzles in Otto Octavius's lab, introduced in the "My OTHER Other Job" mission. More of these projects are added throughout the game, and six are obtained this way in total. The second is completing various tasks at Research Stations (two tokens obtained per task), and the third, introduced in the "Helping Howard" side mission, is by capturing pigeons. Research Tokens can be more complicated to obtain.
