Because Disney Infinity provides a helpful quest compass system for all missions, directions to quest objectives are unnecessary. For this reason, the aim of this walkthrough is to help players achieve as many feats as possible during a playthrough of the Avengers playset. Feats will be noted with an asterisk (*) and written in title case, like so *Name of Some Feat.
This playset will not assume players have every character, but it will provide detail for how to unlock feats for specific characters and recommend certain characters as optimal for some situations.
Finally, this walkthrough assumes users are playing on the Extreme difficulty. The instructions here will thus be applicable for any difficulty, as the strategies discussed here will help players beat the game on the hardest possible difficulty.
Iron Man: (Flight/Tech) – Iron Man is a ranged-focused character with strong melee attacks. Through upgrade, you can activate a deployable mine, and the powerful repulsor blossom ability. You can also upgrade to be able to charge his R2 attack so that it’s much more powerful.
Iron Man’s R1 special, fully upgraded, is one of the best for certain situations, but it has the drawback that you must be roughly facing the group of enemies on which you’re using it, or most of the missiles can miss.
Black Widow: (Super Jump/Tech) – Black Widow is a ranged-heavy brawler. Her standard Triangle attack is a jump kick which does more damage than most others’ starting Triangle, and her R2 ranged guns are full automatic (you can hold to fire). Her special attack is a cloak, but the game AI seems to see right through it.
Thor: (Flight/Maximum Strength) – Thor is a balanced character whose Triangle and R2 attacks start out about equal strength, doing as much damage as Black Widow’s Triangle kick. His upgraded charged R2 does impressive damage, and his hammer can hit both on the way out and on the way back.
Unfortunately, this means it sometimes has a mind of its own and won’t come back right away. You can upgrade to be able to bring the hammer back on R2 press.
Thor’s R1 is a strong area of effect (AOE) attack, but even with full upgrades, I found myself resorting to Iron Man or Captain America if I needed a special attack in a pinch.
Captain America: (Super Jump) – Captain America is one of the strongest characters in the game. Although he can’t fly, his super jump is a significant boost. His Triangle melee attacks are standard strength, but his R2 shield can be upgraded to hit up to eight targets in one throw when charged.
His R1 special attack sends his shield spinning in concentric circles around him, and when fully upgraded can kill most enemies in just a few hits. For most missions which require ground clearing, this attack will destroy entire nodes in a single usage.
Hawkeye: (Tech) – Hawkeye starts as one of the weakest characters, but with upgrades can become quite competent. With only one special ability and no super jump, Hawkeye will require you to ride around in motorcycles or the sky cycle as soon as you unlock them.
His standard R2 with no upgrades is a single arrow shot with a slow rate of fire, but after upgrades Hawkeye can fire 5 explosive arrows for shot in a wide line of coverage. He can also charge these shots. Add in his R1 frontal AOE arrow call down for bonus damage.
His Triangle melee attacks are pretty average, but they have a long upgrade tree, increasing their damage considerably. One of his “melee” attacks in his Triangle mash combo is also an arrow shot.
Hulk: (Wall Crawl/Strength) – Hulk becomes available for all players in a few days, so this section will be updated soon.
Nova: (Flight) – Nova is a ranged brawler who can charge his R2 attacks for added damage but has relatively weak Triangle melee attacks.
Fully upgrading Nova’s R1 special, an AOE stun and damage attack, also boosts Nova with an enormous heal. If you grab enough enemies, you can get a full lifebar heal from a single usage of this attack.
Rocket: (Super Jump/Tech) –
Rocket starts off relatively weak, with a semi-auto Quantum Cannon and only a single Triangle melee attack, his slide attack. The cannon can be upgraded to shoot much faster. Though it never achieves full auto, eventually it no longer has to reload. There is also a charge attack for added damage.
Rocket’s only other Triangle attack is a grenade deployment on hold Triangle, which is deep in his relatively short melee tree. Rocket’s R1 is a strong but short-ranged AOE gunshot attack.
Combat in Disney Infinity is fairly simple. For most enemies (mobs), if you continue to press Triangle, you will keep then stun locked and can combo on them until the mob dies. R2 ranged attacks usually allow a broader flexibility of movement for most characters, while Triangle attacks will thrust your character toward the current target, helping you acquire distant enemies.
Use R2 attacks to get an enemy in hit stun, then follow up with triangle to lock them into a long combo. For large groups of enemies, trim down the numbers using R1 special attacks or jump slams (X and then Triangle), then engage as before.
Before or after any attack, you can press Circle and a direction to perform an evasive dodge. You can also hold Circle to block, and this can be used after or during any attack.
Cold Opening: Battle through Avengers Tower to the power core, securing each area as you go.
For the first mission of the game, you’ll start in Avengers tower. Follow the series of on-screen prompts, which serve as a tutorial on how to use your primary abilities. Soon, you’ll encounter small frost giants (FGs).
You’ll battle your way through a couple dozen before reaching the power core, where you’ll be locked in by JARVIS and have to fight off a couple more waves. After killing the FGs, press the button on the console to complete the mission. Then go to the exit and up the ladder to reach Manhattan.
Thor – *God of Thunder: Defeat 25 small FGs as Thor.
Black Widow – *Romanoff’s Revenge: Defeat 25 small FGs as Black Widow.
Sheer Wheel Power: Collect the SHIELD motorcycle and drive it to Nick Fury’s checkpoint.
You start right next to the motorcycle. Hop on and drive it to the far side of Avengers Tower to meet Nick Fury.
Captain America – *Road Trip: Ride motorcycle as Captain America 5 kilometers.
Energy Crisis: Activate the power generators.
At the beginning of the mission, summon a new SHIELD motorcycle to get the *Call For a Ride feat. Fight off a couple waves of small FGs at each generator, and push the power button. The small armored frost giant will make its debut at the third generator. This mission begins your progress on the *Power Up feat, to activate every power generator.
After Energy Crisis:
The VS challenge at the top of Avengers Tower will unlock. This presents a convenient opportunity to knock out a few feats, if you have Iron Man. If you fly around with Iron Man for a while, you can get the *Cross Country Flight feat for flying 15 kilometers with Iron Man. End at the top of Avengers Tower to achieve *Birds Eye View: Arrow at the top of Avengers Tower. Then, using Hulk and Thor, you can try out the VS mode challenge here and get *Green Thunder: Attack Hulk as Thor.
Street Sweeper: Break 15 ice chunks.
In this straightforward mission, follow the quest objective and break the ice chunks around the city. You’ll occasionally have to fight FGs on the way. This mission will start your progress on *Break the Ice: Break 15 chunks of ice around the city.
Bridge May Be Icy: Save the bus on the damaged bridge.
You’ll have to break some more ice chunks and fight small FGs as you move the bus down the bridge. This mission will get you more progress towards the previous feats for Black Widow, Thor, or ice chunks.
Shaking the Wasp’s Nest: Free Wasp from the frozen building.
Follow the quest objective marker to Wasp’s apartment and break some ice chunks, kill some FGs, then meet the new medium frost giant.
Iron Man – *Heavy Metal: Defeat 10 medium frost giants as Iron Man.
Make Mine Marvel: Clear a path for the vehicle carrying the SHIELD informant.
Go to the SHIELD informant vehicle and clear ice chunks, small, and medium FGs. You can use this mission to get progress on the previous feats.
Chasing a Lead: Follow the frost giants.
While following a herd of frost giants around the city, this mission introduces you to the medium shielded frost giant. If you’ve been playing Iron Man since the Wasp mission, you should get *Heavy Metal during this mission, then you can switch to Captain America. After the mission is over, enter Loki’s warehouse.
Captain America – *Super Soldier Sweep: Defeat 10 medium shielded frost giants as Captain America.
Loki’s Swelled Head: Search the warehouse for clues to Loki’s plot.
This mission sees the introduction of MODOK drones, for which Hawkeye has a feat, but the Nova missions are much better for that, so you should stay Captain America if you have him. Search the warehouse, hitting or hacking the turret terminals as you go.
Following the quest objective, you’ll eventually find your way to the security room and meet Loki.
Loki Boss Fight
The primary strategy at the start of the fight is to avoid the bolts being fired at you by the clones. Use your Circle dodge, and if you’re quick, super jump or flight to move around the room more quickly. Once you get a hit on Loki, he’ll shield up and start spawning FGs.
The FGs he spawns will slowly increase in difficult on each spawn wave, starting with just a few small FGs and culminating with medium FGs on later spawns. When you kill all the FGs, Loki’s shield will drop and his health bar will appear.
Loki will teleport, block vigorously, and shoot at you during this phase. Even though his shield is down, he’s still not easy to hit! I strongly recommend special attacks like Iron Man’s R1 for this situation because the high number of missiles in a short time makes it virtually guaranteed you’ll hit Loki right away.
Once you hit Loki for 33% of his HP, the process will rinse and repeat with one more clone. It’s a difficult fight, once you win, you’ll get a short cutscene and be returned to the surface.
After Loki Fight: Don’t move! The last Nova crossover coin will appear in front and to the left of where your character spawns, on a street corner. Wait for it, as it takes a little while.
A Change in the Air: Locate the weather machine.
The quest objective will take you to the top of a building where you can see a weather machine nearby. You can either super jump and take the elevator or fly over to the the nearby building. Once here, a single special attack from most characters will be enough to destroy the generator. When you destroy the machine, all the FGs will despawn, so make that your objective.
Chilling Chase: Follow the frost giants.
There will be more MODOK drones in this mission and most future missions, so as soon as you complete Captain America’s 10 medium shielded FGs, you’ll want to switch to Hawkeye.
Hawkeye – *On Target: Defeat 15 MODOK drones as Hawkeye.
*Five by Five: Defeat 5 enemies in 5 seconds as Hawkeye.
Air Mail: Retrieve and deliver the Sky-cycle to Avengers Tower.
This mission will unlock the Sky-cycle, which will bring the flight ability to all your characters who are missing it and make getting around the city much easier. Unfortunately, the Sky-cycle does not have weapons.
A Heavy Dilemma: Carry the power source to the safe zone.
Though Nick Fury says he needs a “big, strong Avenger,” any character can carry the power source and complete this mission. You won’t be able to jump or fly with it, so you’ll have to put down and defend the power source during FG spawns. You’ll find some more small FGs and ice chunks here, if you still need any for those feats. After completing this mission, the small FG toy will unlock for the toy box.
Snow End in Sight: Destroy the weather machine.
This mission is like A Change in the Air five times over. Make sure to be full on special meter or bring some character swaps to make this nice and quick.
Training Ground: Save the subway train from the collapsed tunnel.
Kill the FGs and then perform an air smash to break into the subway tunnel. Once here, defeat some more FGs and break the ice and then the supports on the sides of the tunnel. Back on the surface, fight a couple more FGs on top of the subway trains.
Pier Pressure: Follow the frost giants and retrieve Sif.
Go to the dock as indicated, then kill FGs and enter the warehouse.
Sif’s Ship Shape: Save Sif.
For a little variety, this mission will have you killing a couple waves of FGs, then taking a snowmobile out and riding across a wintery patch of Manhattan. There’s little in the way of bonus objectives or feats out here, so just make your way clean through and to the cave marked by your quest objective.
Once inside, you’ll find the introduction of the large armored frost giant. Kill the enemies and proceed, unlocking the snowmobile and Sif for the toybox.
I’ll Let You Off With a Warning: Activate and defend the heat generator.
Defeat the waves of FGs and MODOK drones at the heat generator for a couple minutes. This mission is amazing for any sort of combat feat, as there are MODOK drones, small and medium FGs. You can also use this mission to get *Life Line: Revive another player 3 times.
Hulk – *Running Rampage: Use Hulk’s Rampaging Rush against 20 enemies.
Iron Man/Thor/Nova – *Air Raid: Defeat 30 enemies while flying.
Hot Spot: Activate and secure the heat generator.
This is very similar to the previous mission, but a bit harder. Go to the docks and defend and secure the heat generator. I tried to do this with Nova, but even with full special move maxed, I still had to switch back to Captain America for his incredible R2 shield ricochets and R1 special attack.
Captain America – For his strong R2 and R1 attacks.
Hasty Retreat: Rescue civilians from frost giants.
The civilians will start out frozen in ice. Break them out, then pick them up with Square and walk or fly them to the heat generator safe zone. These missions can be tricky on Extreme difficulty because it’s hard to have enough time to break, pick up, and run the civilian over to the safe zone before the legions of FGs can hit you.
Using a flying character can make it much easier, as you can shoot or use the L2 crash landing to break open frozen civilians. Then you can quickly pick them up and while flying, aim with the right stick and throw them at the safe zone. I recommended also collecting the most distant civilians to keep the FGs running back and forth as much as possible.
Bad Press: Break the radio towers broadcasting Loki’s propaganda.
As with the weather generators earlier, the FGs around the radio towers here will despawn as soon as you break the radio tower. You can complete this mission in less than a minute with a flyer if you do a fly by on each of the towers.
Keeping it Loki: Save the mayor.
First you’ll have to kill the four frost giants protecting the mayor, then run or fly him to the safe zone, where more FGs will spawn. Kill all FGs to complete the mission.
A Worldwide Web: Retrieve the United Nations delegates.
This is another civilian rescue mission. See the advice on Hasty Retreat. Completing this mission unlocks the AIM drone for toybox.
Taking Some Heat: Break the weather generators.
In this mission, you’ll have to destroy more weather machines by hitting the four yellow boxes at their base. This is most easily accomplished with a flying character with a charge up R2, as then you don’t even have to engage the FGs. Destroy three sets of machines to advance.
Just Say Nano: Defend Avengers Tower while JARVIS creates a nanovirus.
Defend the two nodes at the base of Avengers Tower from FG attack. There will be no timer for this mission, but I completed it when the nodes were at about 25% HP remaining.
Safety First: Civilian rescue in the park in front of the Avengers building.
If you’ve done all the missions above, then this is very similar to Hasty Retreat and A Worldwide Web, so the same rules apply here. Also, if you’ve done those missions, upon completing this one, you’ll get *Damage Control: Get 16 civilians to heat generators.
Viral Infection: Power up the nanovirus on Loki’s casket of Ancient Winters.
Carry the canister in the park to the quest beacon. When you pick up the canister, FGs will spawn. If you kill this initial wave of FGs, no more will spawn. If you elect to kill the FGs rather than run, you must defend the canister.
A Chilling Conclusion: Defeat Loki’s Frost Beast
Frost Beast Boss Fight
You can super jump or fly over the frost breath. After frost breath, the Beast will lay down ice mines with a small AOE. You can avoid their radius by super jumping or flying or also picking an area far away from any of them.
If you successfully avoid, you will now have to dodge the Beast’s hand. Once his hand slams down, attack it with everything you’ve got. It usually takes two waves of this to completely get one hand. Then his head will drop, and you can do 33% of his HP in damage.
After this, FGs will spawn, both small and medium. You can throw these FGs off the edges or fight them, but as soon as the Beast starts breathing and blowing up mines everywhere, most of them will die. It may be best to just avoid them.
Apart from the FGs, the strategy is the same as before. Avoid the frost breath by flying or super jumping and avoid the mines. Then let him slam his hand down and hit it! Do another 33% damage to his head.
Large armored FGs will spawn when the Beast is down to his last third in health. He’ll also start spraying frost breath directly in front of him every so often and slamming both hands down. You cannot hit him during these new attacks, so continue to just avoid him with deft usage of your Circle dodge.
You still injure him the same way in this phase: wait until he slams his hand down, hit the hand, and then hit the head. If you succeed, congratulations! You’ve completed the last mission of the main story. Completing this mission will get you *Beastly Barrage: Destroy Loki’s secret weapon.
All characters can complete this boss fight with different levels of ease. It’s probably easiest with the flying characters, since avoiding frost breath is less of an issue of timing. Super jump characters can still very easily avoid the breath, though, and that’s the most dangerous part. The hardest would be Hawkeye, who has no super jump or flight.
