With the release of each new chapter in Season 2 of Story mode, we see high CP costs for chapter mastery. However, a lot of people complaining about the high cost are not factoring in a couple of things.

This is not limited time content like Spec Ops are. Even with former Spec Op heroes becoming required deploys for new Spec Ops, the CP requirements on Spec Ops has still remained in the 300-500 CP range. Since new chapters are going to remain available for as long as this game is around, naturally chapter mastery is going to have a higher cost to master than Spec Ops. New chapters aren't meant to be mastered in a single weekend, at least for relatively new players. Even seasoned veteran players will keep returning to each chapter due to farmable items.

Also, 20 completed tasks from the previous chapter are required just to unlock each subsequent chapter. Even though a new chapter may require over 2,000 CP worth of recruited heroes, there may be several that were already required for previous tasks in the game. With that in mind, this is what I want to focus on here: What is the true cost of completing each Season 2 chapter?

Total CPs Required for full Season 2 Mastery: 11,547

This is assuming paying 200 CPs for every Spec Op hero and 135 CPs for every PvP hero.

  • Gambit is not an Epic Boss Deploy Hero requirement but is required to unlock the Premium Mission that has the Epic Boss.
  • Cyclops can be recruited for free during Chapter 1 - The Pulse.
  • Cable, Deadpool, Psylocke and Shatterstar can be recruited for free during their respective PVP Tournaments.

This is going to be our baseline, since all that is required to unlock this chapter is completing the first chapter in Season 1.

  • Iron Fist can be recruited for free during Chapter 1 - The Pulse.
  • Fantomex can be recruited for free during his respective PVP Tournament.


Chapter 2's CP requirement is already less than the CP requirement for Chapter 1. Now, we can subtract Dr. Strange (23 CPs), Gambit (90 CPs), Hawkeye (1 CP), Nightcrawler (48 CPs), Scarlet Witch (90 CPs), and Wolverine (90 CPs). So effectively, assuming full mastery of Chapter 1, we are looking at something more like this:

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 898

We are now looking at a requirement that is basically just slightly over half of the CP requirement of the previous chapter.

Season 2, Chapter 3

Here are the hero requirements for Chapter 3:

  • Heroic Battle ic Required to initiate a Heroic Battle
  • Challenge Mode ic Team Up in a Mission
  • Epic ic Required Deploy for an Epic Boss
  • Command point icon Total Command Points required: 1,342
  • The Side Tasks requiring the use of Shatterstar, Magik, Daredevil, Hank Pym, and Fantomex in combat can be done without recruiting them during their respective Team Up Missions in Chapter 3.
  • Punisher is not an Epic Boss Deploy Hero requirement but is required to unlock the Premium Mission that has the Epic Boss.
  • Invisible Woman, Ms. Marvel or She-Hulk can be recruited for free during Chapter 1 - The Pulse, but only one of them can be chosen.
  • Punisher can be recruited for free during his respective PVP Tournament.
  • Ghost Rider and Magik can be recruited for free during their respective Spec Ops.


The unadjusted CP requirement for Chapter 3 is midway between the requirements of the two previous chapters. Comparing Chapter 1 and Chapter 3, they have Black Widow (Free), Dr. Strange (23 CPs), Hawkeye (1 CP), and Phoenix (48 CPs) in common. Adding the heroes in common between Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 adds Black Cat (23 CPs), Black Panther (90 CPs), Captain America (90 CPs), Daredevil (48 CPs), and Spider-Man (90 CPs).

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 929

So now, we are looking at just under 1,000 CPs for Chapter 3 mastery if you have already mastered the previous chapters. This is still only 2/3 of the CPs that are initially required to complete Chapter 1.

We can even take this a step further. Anyone that completed Spec Op 3 would have gotten Magik (200 CPs) for free, and anyone that completed Spec Op 4 would have gotten Ghost Rider (200 CPs) for free. This would reduce the cost even further for those people.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 498

This shows why Spec Op completion is so important now, as completing each Spec Op can potentially reduce the cost of completion for future content by 200 CPs.

At first glance, this is a pretty big jump over the requirements of the three previous chapters. However, breaking it down by chapter, Chapter 1 and Chapter 4 have Captain Britain (90 CPs), Cyclops (15 CPs), Deadpol (135 CPs), Hawkeye (1 CP), Hercules (90 CPs), and Storm (48 CPs). The heroes shared between Chapter 2 and Chapter 4 excluding the heroes required for Chapter 1 are Black Panther (90 CPs), and Thor (90 CPs). Comparing Chapter 3 and Chapter 4, we can add Colossus (23 CPs), Mr. Fantastic (33 CPs), Ms. Marvel (15 CPs), and Wasp (90 CPs) to the list.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 1,253

Even though the adjusted CP requirement for Chapter 4 is higher than the previous 2 chapters, it is still only around 60% of the total CP requirement, and the adjusted total is still nearly 250 CPs less than Chapter 1's total required CPs.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 4's requirements, we find Mockingbird (200 CPs), Emma Frost (200 CPs), and Hank Pym (200 CPs), the prizes from Spec Op 1, Spec Op 2, and Spec Op 7 respectively 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 653

Nearly half of the CP cost from Chapter 4 above and beyond what was required of the previous chapters is from Spec Op prizes.

The initial CP requirement for Chapter 5 is a 25% increase over the previous chapter. However, as we start breaking down the chapter to chapter comparisons, we see that Chapter 1 and Chapter 5 have Cable (135 CPs), Hercules (90 CPs), Kitty Pryde (33 CPs), Nightcrawler (48 CPs), and Psylocke (135 CPs) in common. Comparing to Chapter 2 adds Fantomex (135 CPs), Human Torch (33 CPs), Quicksilver (48 CPs), Spider-Man (90 CPs), Thing (33 CPs), Thundra (90 CPs), and Tigra (90 CPs) to the list. Comparing to Chapter 3 expands the list with Invisible Woman (15 CPs), Punisher (135 CPs), and She-Hulk (15 CPs). And once we factor in Bishop (135 CPs), Hulk (90 CPs), and Spiral (135 CPs) from Chapter 4, the CP requirement should look a lot more managable.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 1,160

Even with an initial CP requirement that was 1,000 CPs more than Chapter 1, Chapter 5's adjusted CP requirement is about the same as the adjusted total for Chapter 4.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 5's requirements, we find Valkyrie (200 CPs), Havok (200 CPs), Vision (200 CPs), and Rescue (200 CPs), the prizes from Spec Op 5, Spec Op 6, Spec Op 8, and Spec Op 9 respectively 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 360

With the former Spec Op prizes factored in, the cost to complete Chapter 5 is in the same range as the cost to complete a typical Spec Op if you have mastered all chapters prior to Chapter 5 and acquired the required Spec Op heroes for free.

Chapter 6's CP initial CP requirement is the lowest since Chapter 4, mainly due to Playdom going back and replacing some of the required deploys who were not even available for general recruitment yet. Eliminating required heroes from the previous chapters, Chapter 6 and Chapter 1 share Black Knight (90 CPs), Black Widow (Free), Captain Britain (90 CPs), Deadpool (135 CPs), Dr. Strange (23 CPs), and Scarlett Witch (90 CPs). Comparing Chapter 2 adds Captain America (90 CPs), Fantomex (135 CPs), Iron Fist (15 CPs), Iron Man (Free), and Luke Cage (23 CPs). Comparing with Chapter 3 adds Doctor Voodoo (90 CPs), Ghost Rider (200 CPs), Magik (200 CPs), Punisher (135 CPs), and Sif (23 CPs). Chapter 4 Mastery does not contribute to this list. However, Chapter 5 does add Rescue (200 CPs).

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 448

448 CPs is by far the lowest total required CP amount when adjusted for the requirements for previous Season 2 chapter masteries. And that is only from 3 heroes, which makes the math in the next section very compelling.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 6's requirements, we find Magik (200 CPs), Ghost Rider (200 CPs), Rescue (200 CPs), Daimon Hellstrom (200 CPs), and Ares (200 CPs) the prizes from Spec Op 3, Spec Op 4, Spec Op 9, Spec Op 11, and Spec Op 12 respectively. Due to requirements from previous Season 2 Chapters, we can eliminate all but Daimon and Ares from the list for the grand total below.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 48

Assuming completion of all of the previous Season 2 chapters and completing all of the Spec Ops indicated, the total cost to complete Chapter 6 is the recruitment of War Machine, a 48 CP hero.

Chapter 7's CP initial CP requirement is the highest so far. Eliminating required heroes from the previous chapters, Chapter 7 and Chapter 1 share Black Knight (90 CPs) and Shatterstar (135 CPs). Comparing Chapter 2 adds Black Cat (23 CPs) and Thundra (90 CPs). Comparing with Chapter 3 adds Beast (90 CPs), Dr. Voodoo (90 CPs), Magik (200 CPs), and Wasp (90 CPs). Chapter 4 Mastery contributes Bishop (135 CPs), Domino (135 CPs), Emma Forst (200 CPs), Hank Pym (200 CPs), Mockingbird (200 CPs), Spiral (135 CPs), and X-23 (135 CPs). Chapter 5 adds Fandral (90 CPs), Red Hulk (135 CPs), and Valkyrie (200 CPs). Chapter 6 contributes nothing to this list.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 760

760 CPs is not one of the lower requirements, but we are left with only 5 heroes.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 7's requirements beyond those already needed for previous Season 2 chapters, we find Wonderman (200 CPs) and Heimdall (200 CPs), the prizes from Spec Op 10 and Spec Op 14 respectively. 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 360

Assuming completion of all of the previous Season 2 chapters and completing all of the Spec Ops indicated, the total cost to complete Chapter 7 is the recruitment of Agent Venom (135 CPs), Gamora (90 CPs), and Hogun (135 CPs).

Chapter 8's CP initial CP requirement is a significant drop from the previous chapter and is probably near the average that I would expect for most Chapters. Eliminating required heroes from the previous chapters, Chapter 8 and Chapter 1 share Cable (90 CPs), Scarlet Witch (90 CPs), Shatterstar (135 CPs), Storm (48 CPs), and Union Jack (90 CPs). Comparing Chapter 2 adds Captain America (90 CPs) and Daredevil (48 CPs). Comparing with Chapter 3 adds Dr. Voodoo (90 CPs), Ghost Rider (200 CPs), and Magik (200 CPs). Chapter 4 Mastery contributes Bishop (135 CPs), Domino (135 CPs), and Mockingbird (200 CPs). Chapter 5 adds Tigra (90 CPs) and Vision (200 CPs). Chapter 6 contributes nothing to this list. Chapter 7 adds Wonderman (200 CPs) to the list.

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 490

Chapter 8 is down to 490 CPs across only 3 heroes.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 8's requirements beyond those already needed for previous Season 2 chapters, we find Nico Minoru (200 CPs) and Falcon (200 CPs), the prizes from Spec Op 15 and Spec Op 17 respectively. 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 90

Assuming completion of all of the previous Season 2 chapters and completing all of the Spec Ops indicated, the total cost to complete Chapter 8 is only recruiting Molly Hayes (90 CPs.)

Chapter 9's CP initial CP requirement is up to around the same as what we saw back in Chapter 7, which is to be expected this late in the season. Eliminating required heroes from the previous chapters, Chapter 9 and Chapter 1 share Pheonix (48 CPs) and Shatterstar (135 CPs). Comparing Chapter 9 with Chapter 2 adds Black Panther (90 CPs), Thor (90 CPs), and Thundra (90 CPs). Comparing with Chapter 3 adds Colossus (23 CPs), Daredevil (48 CPs), Ghost Rider (200 CPs), and Magik (200 CPs). Chapter 4 Mastery only contributes X-23 (135 CPs). Chapter 5 adds Fandral (90 CPs), Havok (200 CPs), Red Hulk (135 CPs), and Valkyrie (200 CPs). Chapter 6 contributes Daimon Hellstrom (200 CPs) and War Machine (48 CPs). Chapter 7 adds Agent Venom (135 CPs), Gamora (90 CPs), Hogun (135 CPs), and Wonderman (200 CPs) to the list. Chapter 8 Mastery adds nothing to the list. 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters: 695

Chapter 9 is down to 695 CPs across only 5 heroes.

If we look at past Spec Op completion for Chapter 9's requirements beyond those already needed for previous Season 2 chapters, we can add Anti-Venom (200 CPs), the prize from Spec Op 18, to the list. 

Total Required CPs with Mastery of Previous Season 2 Chapters and Completion of Spec Ops: 495

Assuming completion of all of the previous Season 2 chapters and completing Spec Op 18, the total cost to complete Chapter 9 is recruiting Angela (135 CPs), Drax (135 CPs), Moon Knight (90 CPs), and Nova (135 CPs).
