If Galvanize in Spider-Man 2 is not working for you and you are stuck in the Set Things Right mission, you're not alone.

Numerous Spider-Man 2 players have encountered a frustrating issue where their game screen freezes at the moment the game instructs them to use the Galvanize ability, leaving them unable to proceed, regardless of their attempts to resolve it.

In this guide, we'll provide proven solutions to help you overcome the issue of Galvanize not working, enabling you to advance to other missions in Spider-Man 2 and effectively use this powerful ability against the Spider-Man 2 villains.

How to fix the Spider-Man 2 Galvanize not working issue

To fix the issue of Galvanize not working in Spider-Man 2, reload the checkpoint and activate the ability just before the in-game prompt instructs you to do so.

Numerous Redditors have confirmed the effectiveness of this method. Galvanize launches a single enemy into the air, and releases intermittent bolts of electricity at nearby foes. The frequency of these electrical attacks increases as you keep the targeted enemy airborne and continue to strike them.

This move has the advantage of enabling you to focus on your main target while simultaneously impacting nearby opponents. In the game, even Miles comments on the effectiveness of this power.

The Galvanize ability in Spider-Man 2 isn't functioning properly due to a game bug. Fortunately, players have discovered a workaround to overcome this problem; otherwise, it could have left you stuck in the mission.
