Guide Walkthrough  ============================================================================== Iâll try my best to give a very detailed guide for the game but donât hate since no guide is perfect. ============================================================================== The Beginning [TB] ============================================================================== So the game starts off with Hugo Strange interrogating Bruce Wayne and with the roll of the opening credits, we then flash back to Bruce Wayne making a public announcement about Arkham City but then Special Ops move in take the billionaire playboy man. You then flash forward to a room where Hugo Strange tells you he knows that your Batman, he then exits the room and you see your reflection in window, use the left stick left and right so the chair breaks and you fall down, a guard comes in and you counter him and grab something from his radio, a guard then comes in and attacks you then throws you outside, walk and go into Line A where you need to wait till both prisoners move out of the way before moving up, you then meet with 2 people. Exit and counter all the guys attacking you then help up Jack Ryder, then a guy attacks you from behind and your brought to Penguin, counter Penguin when heâs about to punch you in the face then keep attacking till you get free, finish off all bad guys then jump onto the dumpster and up the ladder, jump across and go up the ladder again and then you talk to Alfred. Jump across to the ACE Chemical plant [where the E is] and then move along the ledge, follow the tutorial until you reach the top of building, after that you don the suit of Batman and get the TROPHY: Iâm Batman. ============================================================================== Catwoman and Two-Face [CTF] ============================================================================== After becoming Batman you hear radio chatter which you have to decrypt first [put the locator on the flashing point to receive the frequency and hold the action button] about Two-Face having Catwoman in the courthouse, glide over and face 6 guys guarding the courthouse, after that go in. After coming in go up the stairs and go right, after coming to the balcony you have a cutscene, go up the ladder and silently takedown the guy up here, you then drop down and fight 5-7 guys, after thatâs done Two-Face shoots you and you see a cutscene and also get a TROPHY: Acid Bath ============================================================================== Find the Shooter [FS] ============================================================================== After the cutscene use Detective mode and scan the window then scan the floor to see the trajectory of the bullet, talk to Alfred then head out, the door is blocked so go up the stairs and go left to exit, after exiting drop down and fight 7-8 guys, then follow the marker to the church where 3 guys are guarding the entrance, immobilize them, then enter. After entering Harley Quinn attacks you so counter her or punch in the face, after that happens she talks to you and after sheâs done the guys start shooting so use the SMOK PELLET and then GRAPPLE up, you then use the Detective mode and Batman describes the situation and how to take care of them, take out the left and right guys first then take out the last two with a cool double takedown, rescue the hostages and get the TROPHY: Savior Go back to the entrance and enter the door to the left, go up the wall and look up for a RIDDLER TROPHY then grapple up to the top and up the ladder, scan the gun and then Joker starts talking you, after he says you have 5 seconds to get out jump out the window and watch the tower blow up, you then need to find the Joker, you also get 2 side missions: Distress Flare and AR Training. ============================================================================== Find and talk to the Joker [JOKE] ============================================================================== Follow the meter to Jokers complex which is the Steel Mill, follow the signal then talk to Alfred you tells you theres only one way in, grapple the chimney stack and get the TROPHY: Chimney Sweep. After gliding down you land on a wire [I donât know why thereâs a wire there in the first place]. This part is another tutorial lesson, slide under, use the batclaw on the to pipe to cool down the steam then drop down, drop to ledge then jump, explosive gel the floor then use the batarang on the switch on the top right corner, go through the tunnel follow the pipe till you come you are blocked and he tells you to follow the pipe back to the origin then go back then takeout 10 guys after coming out of the floor. Go through the big doors and batman tells you that the guys in the other room has guns so hit the switch and go left, go through then up then grapple to the statues, go to the guy by himself and silently take him down, then double takedown the other 2, jump through the window and go through the doors. Wait for the guy walking to get to the other guy so you can double takedown, then grapple up and silent takedown the next guy and then takedown the 2 guys in the room with the hostage. After you rescued the medic look behind you with the Detective Mode and shoot the door to make it go up, then again and up to the vent and take out 4-5 guys after dropping down, head back to where you beat up the 10 guys and use the crane to break open the door, grapple up then you get kicked down, fight like 9-10 guys plus a one armed freak, beat up all the small guys then take out the big guy, you get the TROPHY: One Armed Bandit. Go up and watch the cutscene, you need to find Mr. Freeze to help you. ============================================================================== Finding Mr. Freeze [MRF] ============================================================================== Head North to the GCPD building and see guards posted outside, take them out and look for the door with a motor above it, slide under and go down and break the wall to get the RIDDLER TROPHY, then head to the doors and get the chip from Penguins guy. Walk down and see that there are 5 armed guys here, make some noise and 1 guy will come out, make sure your above on the ceiling before taking him down, then Heartbeat Monitors tell when a guy goes down, another guy will check on him so take him out, go into the vent above and plan out how you want to takedown the other 3 guys, the last guy standing will drop his weapon so interrogate him to learn where Mr. Freeze is. After that go back to the exit where the gates close on you, open the grate and go into the next room and use the decrypter to get out, now head for the Museum. ============================================================================== The Museum [TM] ============================================================================== There are 5 guys waiting outside the door at the Museum, take them out then hack the terminal to get in, there are 2 guys with knives here, follow the lesson and take them out, jump left to get a RIDDLER TROPHY, then jump right and hack the terminal but get locked out since Penguin is using a military grade communication disruptor, head back outside to locate 3 of them before heading back inside.  Above you on the roof and is guarded by 5-6 guys, you need to destroy 3 sides before moving on  Head North for the next one, when your about 45-50M away turn on Detective Mode and see 4 guys with guns here, sneak attack the lonely one then proceed to take out the rest  The last one is in the subway tunnels, there are 3 armed guards protecting the entrance, then go down and see 2 guards so double takedown, hop over the gate follow the path, you eventually see 3 guys and a TITAN canister, go through the vent and grapple onto the ledge then takedown the guy on the bridge, grapple back up then takedown guy who checks on him, then take out the other 3 guards accordingly, then destroy the last disruptor [Communication Breakdown] and head back to the Museum where 6-8 guys are waiting for you. Go inside and disable the gate, head up and dinosaur will scare you but its nothing, go down and 3 guys are beating up someone, take them out and talk to the prisoner, go down and you need to use a RC Batarang, throw up to the hole then down to hit the switch [use brakes to help you out], go and enter the pit, you fight like 17-21 guys here which is no problem but then comes the second part where you fight like 10-12 guys and a TITAN freak, to beat him super stun which is 3 times then punch him to ride him, keep doing this till he goes down and you get the TROPHY: Gladiator. Use the RC Batarang and go left to hit the switch to open the gate a bit, slide under then hack the terminal to unlock the door, jump in and go up then gel the top then climb up and gel again then through the door where you gel 1 more time before a cutscene. Walk on the ice and free the officer but donât run on it as it will break and if you fall thereâs not a nice surprise waiting for you, after freeing the officer go back on the ice and look right and see 2 more officers, shoot down the raft hanging and use it to get the prisoner on the left first then go to the other side to get the other one. Go up and enter the next room. After entering you see 6 guys and 3 with thermal vision which detects you when hiding on a vantage point. [My suggestion is to blow up the wall to the right to get their attention and pick off one by one.] After saving them head back out and go to the room across from you to Mr. Freeze. After you reach the other side there is 3 people waiting at the door but canât get them since the gate comes up, hack the terminal and take them out, go in and slide under to reach Mr. Freeze, gel the wall to your right and a One Armed freak attacks you with 5-7 other guys, take them out and release Mr. Freeze. Blow up the TITAN Canister in the next room and hack the gate to get out faster, head back and see that all the ice is now water, head back to where you saved the 3 hostages earlier, use the rafts to make it across and donât fall off, after going back to the Armory Room, go to Mr. Freezeâs suit and get the chip, now head to the Iceberg Lounge, when your close enough the shark will attack, beat it down and proceed to penguin. After coming into the room go left or right it really doesnât matter, wait for Penguin to shoot before proceeding, make it to the ramp and when close enough use the jammer on his gun then uppercut him off the table, after that you fall into a pit and meet Solomon Grundy. This zombie is really easy, there are 3 parts to him though.  The first part is you have to use the Explosive Gel on the conduits on the floor to hurt him [Quickfire] then punch him till another part happens.  After he will be pissed and you have to do the same thing but only this time the conduits have doors on them, wait for them to open to hit them, after this part finish him but heâs not done yet, press the action button and break free; TROPHY: Wrecking Ball.  You shoots shockwaves at you so all you have to do it jump it, its exactly the same thing, after you kill Grundy you head up and fight Penguin, dodge all his shots till you get to him and finish him off. ============================================================================== Ras Al Ghul [RAG] ============================================================================== After coming out from the Iceberg Lounge you talk to Freeze who tells you he needs a suitable enzyme to help his cure and a ninja in the glass near you escapes, scan her blood and follow the trail, after the trail ends you get hit from behind, follow the ninja till she attacks you and counter her where a cutscene occurs, after that you get the LineLauncher. Go to the Steel Mill, and see a hole leading underground, dive in or take out all 4 armed guards here, go down and face 3-4 guys after jumping across, then face 2 and 1 Armored guy when you drop down, move up and two paths. Left which you canât do yet as you need a certain gadget so go right, use the LineLauncher and then look right and shoot there for a RIDDLER TROPHY, then shoot across, move up and there are 8 guys and a RIDDLER INFORMAT under the breakable floor, hack the terminal [CARRIAGE]. Look for a door to the right of you then after entering go left and go in, you get sick but no worries, LineLauncher across and fight 2 Armed Guards, 1 Armored and 2 guys, look across for a RIDDLER TROPHY and go through the door. After entering you see a doctor and you need to save her, take out the guy to the right first then plan out what you want as the enemies always go a different way. After that go down and open the door, REC the generators at the bottom of the door, and after the second door, 3 ninjas appear, the next generator needs to be gelled before opening it, go to the door and see thatâs its locked, scan the robot next to you and he tells you that you need the recordings from them to see where they enter, use Detective mode to find them all and ninjas will attack you when scanning some of them, after you have it all go to the wall and you need a key, a ninja will drop down so counter her and then enter, keep going till you see a ladder where you then fall ill again and see your parents, get up and go to the big doors where you are confronted by Talia, who tells you need to pass some trails before talking to her father. You will enter a room with a chalice so drink from it and youâll start tripping out, talk to Ras who tells you that you need to follow him and not touch anything as you will die [you donât die you just restart] and follow the blue line to get to him, after reaching him youâll need to glide again to another blue crystal where you fight 2 sand ninjas, fly again into the circle where you go into another part. Glide through all the obstacles to the blue crystal, glide again to another blue crystal where you fight 5-6 sand ninjas, after that glide into the circle and your completely fine, follow Talia to meet her father. You start trippin again but this time its real, you right Ras Al Ghul, you first fight 5-6 sand ninjas while dodging his attacks after thatâs all done he will make a sand sculpture of himself with sand ninjas as his shields, shoot when there is gap [need to hit him 6 times] and dodge his sword and ninja star attacks, after you beat him heâll fall down where he jumps up at you and you need to press the counter button multiple times, after this you will have a little scene then 20 ninjas jump at you, you need to press the counter button till all the markers disappear to be successful, then fight them off while Ras attacks you [THIS CAN REPEAT ITSELF YOU DO NOT HIT RAS THAT MUCH] keep fighting till he makes himself big again, do the same thing but this time he swings his sword but its easy to dodge, after you beat him youâll need to counter him again where you stop trippin out. After this heâll use Talia as a shield where you use a Reverse Batarang to hit him then Superman Punch him to knock him out; TROPHY: Sandstorm. Head back to the subway where 5 guys are waiting for you, take out the Jammer first then proceed to taking them all out, head west to exit, after there are people with riot shield now, keep heading forward till you get to the exit, take out 11 guys and a RIDDLER INFORMANT, hack the terminal [COMPARTMENT] and get out of here. ============================================================================== Find the Mayor [FM] ============================================================================== After coming out you find out that Mayor Sharp is inside the city, follow the marker and fight off the thugs and then a cutscene, you also unlock a new gadget which you have to back to the Iceberg Lounge outside entrance to get in. ============================================================================== Mr. Freeze Why? [MRF?] ============================================================================== GO back to Mr. Freeze where a cutscene occurs, after that happens you have to fight him. You have to surprise attack him 5 times,  Silent Takedown at the very beginning to get first strike [NOTE: AFTER DOING A CERTAIN TAKEDOWN, FREEZE LEARNS AND COUNTERS THAT]  Use the puddle of water on the bottom, flip the switch when heâs on it,  Use the REC on a motor when he is near it,  Hide in under the floor to sneak attack him,  Drop down and smash in his helmet. You get the TROPHY: Hide and Seek ============================================================================== Find the Cure [FC] ============================================================================== After all that you 2 are friends again, use the freeze grenade on the steam to exit the building, after leaving a helicopter sees you then it gets shot down by the Joker, find the wreckage where Vicky Vale is pinned down by sniper fire. First find the 2 snipers on the same building but cannot do a double takedown, then move up and see 2 more snipers where you can do a double takedown, rescue her and get a new side mission âRetrieve sample cureâ. Go back to the steel mill back entrance but watch out for sniper fire when coming here, there are 2 snipers at the back entrance, take out the very top one then the guy by the ledge, take out the lower sniper then the last 2 on the catwalk, go to the door and double takedown the 2 guarding the door. Keep going and fight 3 guys, you then use the freeze grenade on the water, jump onto it and batclaw downstream, crouch till you get to the other side and then climb up and then do the same thing here, keep going and freeze grenade again, break the window and attack the 6 guards inside here. Go through the door where 2 guys are torturing another guy, take them down and free the guy but wait heâs a bad guy so take him out when he attacks you, gel the wall, go down and make an ice block, use it to get across then when you come to the part where you think you canât go anywhere, use the LineLauncher to get across, freeze the steam coming out then make an ice block and then go up. Use an RC Batarang to get some electricity on it then come back to hit the switch, look right and hack the terminal [ROMAN IONIS], go through the doors and back into the Steel Mill where you rescued the doctor After you come back here there are 7 people with guns and mines [HAVE THE MINE DISRUPTOR TO MAKE THIS EASIER FOR YOU], take out the guy closet to you right away then grapple up, blow up a mine on a guy then hit the fire extinguisher near the door to smoke takedown 2 people, then take your time to plan out everything. Use the REC to open the door and into the vent, after coming out grapple up to avoid being detected by the sniper to get to the assembly line, then use that to take down the sniper, go up and see Harley Quinn tied up who tells you about a side mission âStolen Frozen Techâ, go back to where you first met the Joker where 5 people are waiting for you, grapple up and do a double takedown on the snipers then come down and attack the people on the ground, go up and then left to face the Joker. Beat the Joker down with a some punches of justice then after 9-11 people show up to help him [TALK ABOUT A FAIR FIGHT], then a One Armed freak comes out with more people so take them out, the final part is 2 TITAN freaks that come out with more people so take out the big ones first before taking out the small ones. We then come down to the Joker where after enough is done a cutscene occurs. TROPHY: Ghost Train ============================================================================== Mastercode Key [MK] ============================================================================== After you get up a helicopter will find you so scan it then they start shooting you with their machine guns [YOU CAN GRAPPLE ONTO THE COPTER TO SCAN RATHER THAN GLIDING AND SCANNIN AT THE SAME TIME] the helicopter I found was near the Steel Mill but I donât know if thatâs for everyone so good luck with finding the code. Go to the marker where 2 snipers are looking for you, take them out then hack the door [MASTERMIND], go in and go to where there are 3 guards, after that happens a little scene which you have to listen to, then fight off like 5-7 guys, drop into the sewer after this. Get the RIDDLER TROPHY then drop down and go left, gel the floor and go through the door and talk to the doctor.

TROPHY: Free Fall. ============================================================================== The Conclusion [TC] ============================================================================== After you come out the Joker is calling you out and you need to answer right away, go to the location either wise Talia dies, go to the marker where Joker will say something to you, take out all the snipers on the rooftops before heading on the ground for the last 2, enter the theatre and watch the cutscene. After all that you fell for the old Joker gag, [NOT A GOOD DETECTICE EH LOL] so you fight clayface, heâs really simple all you have to do is throw your freeze grenade till he freezes up then grab the sword and attack him with it, [he has 2 attacks, sweep and then rolling at you] the second part is the same thing but he shoots clay balls at you, after you kill him you fall down into the pit, where you need to fight him again, this time you have a sword which is really fast which you cut down all the clay people, you need to throw your grenade into his mouth after he shoots his projectiles at you, keep doing this till you finish him off. Watch the cutscene and you get to play as Catwoman and Batman, you can freely roam the city without TYGER soldiers, you can now complete all the things you didnât complete in the game, you also unlock New Game Plus. ============================================================================== Catwoman Episode 1 [CE1] ============================================================================== You watch the cutscene and then fight 5 guys which is really easy, after that go to the vault and grab your prize and watch the cutscene. ============================================================================== Catwoman Episode 2 [CE2] ============================================================================== Go back to your apartment and see 4 people waiting outside, take them out and go to the window and get your BOLAS and CALTROPS, then head to Ivyâs compound where 3 armed guards are, after that go under the bridge to get to the other side. You then fight 4 people after watching the scene, then climb up and fight another 5-6 people, go up 1 more time and fight 6-7 people where Ivyâs plants shoot at you, after you finish go to her and watch. TROPHY: Arkham City Sirens ============================================================================== Catwoman Episode 3 [CE3] ============================================================================== Then you need to go to the sewers where 3 TYGER guards are, take them out and go into the sewer, go through the sewers till you reach the room with computers, you then need to pickpocket 3 guards for their keycards after that you need to go back to the computer and unlock the vault, you then need to take out all 5 guards which is simple, just silent takedown from the top then go into the vault when done. After your in you see Ivyâs plant and briefcases [Ivyâs plant you destroy] grab the briefcase but then 5 TGYER guards attack you, after that grab the briefcases and leave [TROPHY: Pickpocket], you end up having to make a choice, either ditch Batman or save him; if you ditch Batman you get to see what happens to Gotham [only audio in the credits] but then after its done you rewind and can go left to save batman. ============================================================================== Catwoman Episode 4 [CE4] ============================================================================== You need to go to your apartment, when you enter you get blown up, defeat all 4 guys here then head to the Museum. Where 4 guys are waiting outside for you, go inside after, go down and fight 5-6 guys then go down some more and through the door, follow the way to the pit where you fight like 17-21 guys, then slide under the gate and go up the elevator, keep moving and go through the door to where all the water is, climb down and youâll hang onto the ceiling, open the gate then jump onto the ceiling, keep going and go right till you see the entrance, move up and fight 2 armed guys and 1 more, after that go into the Amory Room. See Two-Face on the bridge with another guy, try to separate the guy next to Two-Face so you can takedown, try and take out the surrounding people as fast as you can then attack Two-Face after you attack him for the first time more people come out, this where it gets tricky, try and get Two-Face in a corner and then CALTROPS the way in to beat him down easier [Thatâs my way] then he tells you that he gave half of your stuff away. Now you need to find 16 pieces of loot from Two-Faces henchmen, there are 10 in around you and the other 6 is near the courthouse. TROPHY: Family Jewels ============================================================================== IV. Side Missions  ============================================================================== There are a total of 12 side missions in the game which each one takes like 1-3 hours to complete depending on how distracted you get with other things. ============================================================================== Acts of Violence [AV] ============================================================================== This side mission is started by helping a political prisoner out when he is either getting beat up or roughed up by the inmates, all you have to do is listen while travelling the city and take out guys to help progress the completion status of the side mission. ============================================================================== AR/Advanced AR Training [ART] ============================================================================== This is just a tutorial on how to glide and drop dive in the game, complete this to get a nice upgrade to your grappler, look for a red batman sign to start the tutorial. AR 1: This one is easy, just follow the markers. AR 2: This one you learn to drop dive AR 3: Now this one you drop dive then have to glide after AR 4: The final one is glide then drop dive then let go then drop dive then glide to the last one. After you done this Alfred will send the Grapnel Boost, use the marker on the map to get this as this is a useful upgrade. Advanced AR 1: At the Steel Mill, you need to glide then drop dive then level out to fly through the tunnel Advanced AR 2: Notably the hardest one out of the 4, you just glide to the first one then go down, when about half way to the second ring you drop dive then level out to get above the fence, then the next one has to be perfect as you need all the speed to reach the last one. Advanced AR 3: This one is easy one as there are only 3 targets to hit, you need to drop dive then glide through the tunnel. Advanced AR 4: The easiest one of them all, glide then drop dive then do a U-turn and go above the fence, then when your about to fall grapple then boost and then fly around to hit the last one. After you complete this you get the AR Knight Trophy. ============================================================================== Cold Caller Killer [CCK] ============================================================================== To start this side mission you need to answer a phone anywhere in the city where you get a TROPHY for that and youâll talk to Victor Zsasz who tells you that heâll kill a person if you donât reach another phone ringing in the city within the time limit. So after you reached the phone you need to get to heâll start talking to you about his life, you then will have to talk the call by hovering your circle over the circle that moves to trace the call and fill up the bar at the bottom, you will have to do this like 4-5 times as he hangs up after each call. [NOTE: IT BE WISE TO HAVE THE GRAPNEL BOOST WHEN TRAVELLING THE CITY AS IT SHAVES OFF A LOT OF TIME TO GET TO PLACES] After you have enough of the call traced you locate his hideout, go there where 3-4 inmates are outside. After going in, go through the vent and then out, jump across the gap after the water in low, then slide under and move across the ledge when the water is low, jump across the turbine and use the LineGrappler if you have it, use it to get across then wait for the water to go down, jump then grapple onto the ledge then silent takedown Zsasz and watch the cutscene. You get the trophy: Dial Z for Murder ============================================================================== Enigma Conundrum [EC] ============================================================================== To start this side mission is to either get âFind Mission Medical Teamâ or go back into the church [Going back is probably the church is the easiest thing to do]. After you enter the church you find that all the volunteers and officers are missing, you then see the riddler who tells you that he has them and you need to solve his riddles to find them. He starts off with his first one which is âIâm a instrument that plays straight from the Heartâ [Sorry canât remember what the riddle was but this is close to it], so head to the end of the church and use the Environmental Analysis on the ORGAN to solve his riddle and get a TROPHY, he then tells you to head to the Courthouse and a surprise is waiting for you outside. After you exit there are 3 guys but 1 of them is glowing green [Green means that he works for the Riddler] take out the 2 other guys then interrogate the green guy to give you clues about riddler trophies around the area. Head to the Courthouse where there are 11 guys and an Riddler informant here. Go in and fight 4 guys and 1 Riddler associate then free the hostage who then tells you some numbers 3-2-5, 2-7-5 which is a radio frequency where 325[Is the bottom numbers] and 275[Is the top numbers] after that the officer gives you a box which you need to solve the riddle âIf you know me, you want to share me, but if share me, Iâll be gone, what am I? and the answer is SECRET. ============= FIRST HOSTAGE ============= Head to the marker and drop down where you can help a political prisoner, look on the wall at the with the big ? on it so investigate and break the wall and head through the door, after that the Riddler will talk to you and after that look behind you and hit the big neon ? to open the door. There are 2 ways to do this  You can hit the switch in front of you which turns off t he power for a path, then hit the switch to your right which makes another path, then head to the elevator and hit the switch to the left to go up, then glide to the hostage and get the trophy (Conundrum).  Run across the floor to the elevator then hit the switch to go up. After this the guy gives you 6-2-5, 9-2-5 where you decode but need more Riddler trophies for the next hostage. You need to have 80 of Riddler Trophies. ============== SECOND HOSTAGE ============== Requirements: 80 Ridder Trophies After you have enough trophies answer the riddle; The more there is, the less you see. What am I? DARKNESS. Youâll play a game which is really simple just follow the hostage [NOTE: IF YOU FAIL THE FIRST TIME USE DETECTIVE VISION] then rescue the hostage and get the frequency 8-6-0, 1-2-0.
