Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Team Bonuses

You’ll get bonuses for teaming up heroes who belong to the same series in Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Here’s how Team Bonuses work.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 features a huge cast of iconic Marvel characters, and even rewards you for teaming them up in interesting ways. You see, several of the teams that feature in the comics are available in the game, so pairing up heroes from say, Spider-Man Universe, will yield specific buffs. To help you make sense of it all, we’ve put together this Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Team Bonuses Guide. We’ll explain what Team Bonuses are, and how to apply them to your heroes. We’ll also list the possible teams, and what type of bonus each applies once activated.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Team Bonuses Explained

Team Bonuses are a great way to boost your team’s overall strength in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, though applying them isn’t as obvious as it might seem at first. You’ll need to head into hero select to change your team, where you can use the L button to check what teams each character belongs to. Teaming up characters sharing the same Team Bonuses will apply effects to the overall squad. You can see the effects that the Team Bonuses are applying to your team by looking in the top right of the hero select screen. Check out the image below for more info.
