Trophy: Just the Beginning
Unlock all Skills Gold

There are four distinct Skill Trees in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales that players may invest points to fully customize Spider-Man to fit their playstyle. Each tree has multiple branches, and players are free to dump their points into one, or spread them throughout.

Players earn skill tree points by leveling. The skill tree is only unlocked after players complete the first mission, "Hold Onto Your Web-Shooters".
