View Full Version : Alternate Costume Unlock Requirements

All of the costumes can be unlocked by defeating 50 enemies (except Juggernaut who requires 300), though some require a certain alignment in the Civil War. All of the 50 enemies killed can be done in missions, via replay or in the combat simulations. Be sure to unlock every costume you can for your alignment on your first playthrough before starting your second. So for instance, after Act 1 if you choose Pro-Reg, get all of Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic, etc. before starting a new playthrough or you'll miss your chance to unlock them. Characters marked as Neutral can be done regardless of which side you choose, but still have to be done after Act 1.

Pro-Registration Campaign

I would suggest adding one for the Juggernaut in, Defeat 300 Enemies, which can also be done at anytime

i made 2 saves before i chose a side so i did not have to play act 1 again to get the other side. how will this affect the achievement, does the game have the new game plus?

If I were to miss someone, can I go back and re-do the mission to get their suit or is the achievement missed?

Actually it's the WWII Captain America, not too bad but could have used another

Alt. Costumes are almost impossible to miss. Pretty much beat em up switching characters, that's what I do, test out everyone. Plus they will get their stats raised that way. Only ones I can't guarantee that will unlock is the ones that are on the other side of the law.

You'll have to set-up for round 2 on getting those suits. As for going back, I heard that you should be able to backtrack, although I am not sure how really yet.

I believe the "During Act 2" also works with Act 3. It's giving me credit toward Wolverine during Anti-Registration Act 3.

I'd also like to point out, if you do a Fusion, the kills count for both characters.

Can you get this achievement without having Juggernaut? I didn't preorder my game....

if you go through on pro how do you get the ones on anti or vise versa

Yes, you only need 23 alternate costumes for the achievement. Juggernaut's would be the 24th.

Yup, only 1 alt costume for all characters, except one who has no alt.

Ah man, I was expecting four costumes like last time, and all the X-Men Legends games. As a huge comic nerd, that was part of the games I enjoyed the most.

Oh well, I've pre-ordered it now, not that much of a big deal I suppose.

Would you kindly put them in order by acts and pro and anti. so we can focus on them in 1-2 playthroughs only. it would be great. THX


EDIT: i still had old post up when i wrote. i refreshed. so all have to be unlocked after act 1. i think it would be nicer if they were all in order by pro and anti ......

anybody know if there is a way to find out the names of the alternate costumes. some of them are really cool ie. red and gold spiderman

wish i could find out the story behind some of them, i can't believe the game didn't at least name them like last time, ultimate, classic, etc.

update red and gold is civil war spiderman, the suit is from stark. thanks wikipedia but still how hard would it have been for the game to tell me that lol

I know you solved this costume dilemma, at least, but if you want to find out anyone's alt costume, you get a dossier intel for every alt costume you unlock. Go to one of the review consoles and you can check out the little paragraph about them, as well as the inspiring artist and comic issue.


Also on a side note, some of the names of the costumes from MUA1 weren't all that accurate sometimes, either. I.E. Blade's costumes. The "Ultimate", I believe (main one), is more along the lines of his movie outfit, seeing as he didn't have a stake for a hand :D, and the "Nightstalker" outfit was more along the lines of the costume used in his brief appearance in the 90's Spiderman TV show. Of course, he may have donned that garb for a few issues of his small line of comics, as well, but those are where he'd be more likely know for them.

Ive unlocked all costumes except Nick Fury, and even as Juggernaut and the achievement hasn't unlocked. =/

I've unlocked a few of the costumes so far, and I've been quite disappointed by the costumes. They are not all that interesting, and some are downright ugly, like the ones for Iron Fist and Luke Cage. I liked the breadth of choices in the first one.

I noticed after you beat the game if you choose a full group of characters that were on the opposite side of the civil war you chose you can go back and play the other side of Act II, ultimately unlocking all suits in one playthrough.

note: perhaps I should have tried it before I spoke. It doesn't work to get the suits.

Are you sure Iceman has a second costume ? I've killed more than 30 guys with him and I get no pop-ops whatsoever.

EDIT: It was glitched, I unlocked it.

One question though, spiderman is with the pro-reg. team, but he's playable with anti-reg. too, is his second costume be unlocked with while playing with anti-reg team ?

you can play as every single char in anti except iron man, songbird, and mr fantastic and later on in act III you get them all back still. You just cant get pro reg costumes in anti.

in the stats menu you can go to characters and check your progress. Plus every 10 kills theres a pop up notification that lets you know, except for juggernaut for some reason..

Quick question, but can you earn the 50 kills in simulation battles, or the replay of missions?

I did not realise about this achievement until later in play, and already have a group of hero's I like to use already.

Yes, you can

Thanks for this, I got most of the costumes replaying the simulator where you have to fight a bunch of people, it was easy "simples!"

The one alternate costume of Deadpool that I DIDN'T want them to use, they use. I HATED Ultimate Deadpool. In fact, I pretty much hate the Ultimate universe save The Ultimates 1 and 2. Also, Spider-Man's Red and Gold is more commonly known as 'Iron Spider' among us Spider-Man fans.

Also, I love how they tossed in Red Hulk as Hulk's Alternate. Red Hulk vs Green Hulk is a great read.

So Im confused. If I start a new game do I loose all the alt. costumes that I have unlocked? Because if so how do I keep the anti-reg ones since that is the play through I have already done?

Any chance you could post the DLC costumes and how to get them also? Im mainly not understanding the "defeat your alter-ego" ones

For the 5 DLC Characters:

Black Panther - Defeat 50 enemies (anytime)
Cable - Defeat your best buddy, Deadpool (Have Cable on your team and replay the 1st Washington DC Mission - Capital Offense and defeat Deadpool)
Carnage - Defeat your alter-ego in a Sim Mission (Play Insidious Alliance with Carnage on your team and make it all the way to the last hero, which is Carnage in his alternate costume)
Mangeto - Defeat your alter-ego in a Sim Mission (Play Overload with Magneto on your team, and defeat Magneto since he's wearing the alternate costume)
Psylock - Defeat 50 enemies (anytime)

Insidious Alliance and Overload are 2 of the 4 DLC Sim Missions (Balance and Escort Duty have nothing other than achievements)

Some of the costumes are purely disappointing, unfortunately. Others, like Venom's classic black "Eddie Brock" look are essential. also, the Hobgoblin costume is rad

I agree, i used 2 or 3 alt. costumes, becuse - for me - the rest was ugly :/ Well, i cant tell about pro-registration team, beacuse i havent play second time. But i dont expect better costumes :/

BTW. Tnx for info. Its big helps, beacuse i wasnt sure why after beating 50 people, costumes didnt poop up
