Get Spectacular or better in all Screwball Challenges Silver

Screwball Challenges are citywide activities found throughout the map in The City That Never Sleeps downloadable content for Marvel's Spider-Man. They feature Screwball, who has started a new show where she sets up several challenges for Spider-Man to complete, lest her fans get angry and begin attacking innocents. Completing the challenges will reward players with various amounts of Challenge Tokens, depending on how they score.

Players can begin these after completing the Something is Screwy mission.

Challenge types

Screwball Challenges come in three forms:

  • EMP Challenges
  • Combat Challenges
  • Gadget Challenges

These test Spider-Man's web slinging, fighting, and gadget-based combat skills, respectively.

Success in each of the challenges can yield up to 6 Challenge Tokens depending on the final score, which is based on how fast players complete the challenge; achieving a bronze ("Amazing") rating will grant 1 Challenge Token, a silver ("Spectacular") rating will grant 3 Challenge Tokens, and a gold ("Ultimate") rating will grant 6 Challenge Tokens.
