How to unlock the Back to the Beginning side mission in Spider-Man Miles Morales
The Back to the Beginning side mission is unlocked quite late into the main campaign of Spider-Man Miles Morales.
Once you've done this, Aaron will get in touch with you, starting the Back to the Beginning side mission.
How to complete the Back to the Beginning side mission in Spider-Man Miles Morales
The Back to the Beginning side mission in Spider-Man Miles Morales begins in the southern part of Harlem, near where Central Park and the Upper West Side meet.
You'll need to head down into Aaron's hideout, which is a subway tunnel beneath a bridge. Keep an eye out for the entrance, because it's hidden behind a number of wooden panels.
Once you've found it, drop down into the hideout below and investigate the silver cabinet at the back of the room.
Doing so will reward you with 100 XP and the Purple Reign Suit.

Purple Reign Suit in Spider-Man Miles Morales explained
The Purple Reign Suit in Spider-Man Miles Morales is inspired by the design of the Prowler in the game, sporting the same purple and lime green colours. It even gives Miles' visor a green glow.
Unlocking this suit also unlocks the Reclaimer visor mod.
This mod will replenish one of your gadgets' ammo when you perform a melee Stealth Takedown on an enemy, making it perfect for players who prefer stealth over open combat.
Don't worry, if you don't like the look of the Purple Reign Suit, but do like the Reclaimer Mod, then, just like every other mod, you can use it with any of the Spider-Man suits.
