Batman: Arkham City Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Bell Tower

1. When you head out from the courthouse you can take out the enemies that appear at it’s front entrance for some experience. Once they’ve been dispatched, head toward the green marker or if you look up in the sky, the famous Bat Signal.

2. When you reach the tower there will be enemies guarding the entrance. Take them out starting from above then finish them off. Enter the tower.

3. When you enter, Harley will attack as she flips toward you. You can wait for her to reach you then counter, or, you can just punch her. When she’s down, she’ll start talking, then she’ll kiss you goodbye as she heads out the door.

4. The enemies will have their guns pointed at you, so the game will prompt you to press “triangle” to throw a smoke pellet that disorients your foes. Use this distraction to grapple up to the statues above. Then when you’re perched, use detective mode to assess the situation.

5. One of the thugs is holding a hostage with scaffolding above him, the other thug is holding another hostage and is directly behind some wood paneling. Finally, you’ll have to take out two thugs simultaneously, so drop in from behind them and Three Stooge them. When the action is done, you can talk to the hostages, both doctors and officers.

6. Now go down the hall where the sign says “Bell Tower” and enter the door. If you remember Mr. Cash from Arkham Asylum, you can talk to him as well. He’s next to the “Bell Tower” sign. When you enter the door, run down the hallway and turn right. Remember you have a grappling hook so leave those calorie burning stairs in the dust. When you reach the top, climb the ladder to load the area at the top of the tower.

7. When it loads you’ll see the gun, but Joker’s not there. Use detective mode to scan the gun. After that happens, The Joker will give you five seconds to get the hell out of there. Move in a direction and double tap “X” to jump through the window. If you want to make it interesting, wait until 2 seconds to jump out.

8. Hurray! You’ve survived another murder attempt as you see the Bell Tower crumble. Now it’s time to track down The Joker.

Pete

On October 19, 2011 at 4:18 pm

You’re suppose to throw it through the electric charge first and then turn it back to the circuit box. Took me forever.

I watched him get out of that room with the rec. he shot that door one fricken time and it opened up i shoot it once and it stays shut. how do i get out of this room. the part i am talking about is in pt 6 of his video about 6 minutes and 35 seconds into it.

Rancid

On October 20, 2011 at 8:48 am

For the guys who get stuck at the first door after you get the REC, try using your alternate fire button. The REC seem to have two opposing charges it can fire, that turn electromagnets, generators, and motors in opposite directions. Handy for later.

Im stuck on the part where you have to save Talia from the joker. You are supposed to follow the joker into the theatre but there are snipers with guns that kill me every time I try to go into the theatre. If I try to kill the snipers I can only kill 3 or 4 before I die and when I go to the door of the movie theatre is says it is locked. Anybody else stuck here?

Jimmy

On October 21, 2011 at 12:01 am

I’m stuck at the observation deck. I took the elevator up and my next mission is to breach wonder tower and I can’t get down. I tried jumping off but he keeps shooting his grapple up here. So idk where to go

James

On October 21, 2011 at 12:38 am

I’m in the same boat with you Jimmy. I’m at the obseration deck at the very very top of wonder tower and there is nothing. I’ve tried jumping and flying but there is nothing to indicate what to do next besides look at the view. Anybody else know where to go from here?

julia

On October 21, 2011 at 4:09 am

@jack
use your batclaw to zip up to one of the gargoyles, one of the gargoyles has a broken through passage way behind it you can leave through. hope i helped

On October 21, 2011 at 8:12 am

Hey guys, I’m stuck after fighting Ra’s. I try to exit the subway, but on one side I get blocked by Croc, and at the other side I hit a dead end. I just beat the group of baddies underneath the exit, but can’t figure how to get out…

Hammer

On October 21, 2011 at 9:06 am

If you get stuck on the remote controlled batarang part just fly the batarang through the electrifed fuse in front of you then LT + RT to u-turn and then go hit the switch. Took me forever to figure it out.

Malcolm

On October 21, 2011 at 9:20 am

If someone can figure out how to get down from the observation deck please help

On October 21, 2011 at 8:55 pm

I’m stuck on the Mr. Hammer fight. I can’t beat him. By the time I kill all the goons, I only have two or three health bars, and I can only get in at most 10 hits on Mr. Hammer before he smashes me, and I can only get smashed a couple times before I die. If I just fight all of them at once, I die really quickly. Any suggestions?

Corey

On October 21, 2011 at 9:43 pm

I can’t get to the observation deck from the tower!!!!

Steve

On October 21, 2011 at 9:51 pm

From what I’ve seen, there is a glitch where the observation deck doesn’t load all the way. Rebooting to see if that fixes the problem

Jimmy

On October 22, 2011 at 7:44 am

Ok James I got it. Shimmy around the side where the antenna is. On that platform jump to to little antenna that pokes out a little bit. From there u keep going up. Grapple up and keep jumping on those little antennas u should be up there pretty quick

Jimmy

On October 22, 2011 at 7:48 am

Same for u Malcolm. Unlock the gate to the left and shimmy around to the wood platform. Grapple up from there and jump to ur left on that little antenna that pokes out. Sry James I meant to tell u also to grapple up when u reach that first wood platform. From there u just keep going up guys

G

On October 22, 2011 at 12:52 pm

yea same here peter i cant find out wat to do next

James

On October 22, 2011 at 9:26 pm

I made it to the top of the observation deck (the very top platform after grapple hooking to this glass platform) where I’m suppose to stop protocol 10 but there is nothing there at the top. What am I suppose to do? I try flying down but it keeps automatically grapple hooking me back to the nearest antenna or deck. Am I suppose to blow something up? Help!

Jimmy

On October 22, 2011 at 10:12 pm

James u have to keep going up. After u take the elevator up and u fight like 6 guys unlock the fence to the left. Go out that way. Climb down and go across there just by using ur hands. Around the back will be a wood platform. Get on that and grapple straight up. U will see a huge green dot from the riddlers ? If u turn left u will see a broken antenna. Jump onto that. U might have to shimmy again or grapple but with way u keep isi g the little antennas and the grapple till u reach the top. Up there is like 5 more guys and mr strange. U have to stay in the vents to defeat them or keep chasing them around for a silent takedown

Shelzy

On October 22, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Im stuck in the entrance of the Wonder Tower, for some reason it keeps telling me that the code is wrong when im hacking?
Its really random and im totally stuck can someone please help me?
Is there something i need to ddo first or what?

Eklavya

On October 23, 2011 at 1:54 am

I’m at the very top of wonder tower but do not understand where to go next. I hacked the panel and a door high above opened. When I grappled up and went ahead, it took me to a couple flights of stairs. In front of me is a locked door of sorts with Tyger written on it, and to my right is a really short vent. When I cross it over, I’m at the very top, but I dont find any guys, grates, or even Strange for that matter… Help, i’ve been stuck here for hours… (i even thought making Batman jump off would kill him and i’d start afresh… but in vain)

Dave

On October 23, 2011 at 8:50 am

I have finished the main story and am playing the last part of Catwoman’s story. I am in the Gladiator Pit in the Museum. Unfortunately, the power is turned on to the two fences on either side. I can’t find any way to get past this. I have tried going in through the Iceberg Lounge but the damn cops won’t let me in!
Any thoughts? . . . I’m beginning to think I will have to start over as I have a bunch of side missions I want to do.

RPinney

On October 23, 2011 at 10:02 am

Having the same problem as a couple of people above:

After defeating Titan,opening the gate in the Gladiator Pit and unlocking the door using the sequencer, the elevator will not raise up no matter how many times I shoot it with the REC– using the RT or B button. Any suggestions?

RPinney

On October 23, 2011 at 10:26 am

Since I can’t seem to edit the above post…

There are two modes of fire for the REC. Wished the game would’ve clarified that a bit more.

janet

On October 23, 2011 at 10:43 am

Shelzy rotating the joysticks in different directions makes different words, you have to find the right one

Jimmy

On October 24, 2011 at 1:11 am

Side mission Deadshot part 2.

I have come to my second victim scanned the sceen and discoverd the bullet trajactory. you are supose to follow this line to the origin of the shot. it goes straight through a water tower and continiues untill you come to a casino sign, where it suddenly ends i the middle of the air, i have tried to line myself up so that i travel in the exakt same way as the trace of the bullet and i have been on the highest points thats as close to that as you can get. But i i cant find the casing or whatever there is your supose to be looking for. Has anyone had the same problem? do you know where the casing is?

On October 24, 2011 at 3:01 am

Hey, in the Armory, where Freeze/Fries’ suit is, if you explore enough, you’ll find a Riddler trophy hidden behind a blast of steam. HOW CAN I GET IT? I’ve tried EVERYTHING I could think of, and wandered around the area for over an hour, but I couldn’t figure it out. PLEASE HELP!! Thanks, in advance.

Jake

On October 24, 2011 at 7:37 am

For the guys (and girls) who are stuck on the observation deck listen up. Face the elevator then go to the fence on the right where there is a sign which reads “do not open” -or something to that effect- and look at the wall towards the bottom left hand corner of the fence there will be a hacking panel here, hack and the fence will open :)

Peter Pan

On October 24, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Still looking for the second identity theft victim does anyone have a more specific location?

Gelfmbx

On October 24, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Peter Pan

On October 24, 2011 at 3:15 pm

@ The_Wasteland_Wanderer you’ll have to continue the main story until you get the freeze grenade and you’ll be able to freeze the steam

Peter Pan

On October 24, 2011 at 3:19 pm

@ Gelfmbx if you’ve gotten that far you should already have the Master tyger hacking you’ll just have to play with the analog sticks to get the right code

i cant find mr freeze in gp building???

Graham

On October 27, 2011 at 2:45 pm

PLEASE HELP! I’m playing on the xbox 360, currently doing the first of Ra’s Al Ghul’s Demon Trials (flying onto the ice disk things) and have never worked out how to fly upwards – how to dive bomb is very easy and clear but no matter what I do, I can’t make Batman flyu upwards! Probably a really easy question to answer so please help me out if you can. Thanks.

Kevin Thielenhaus

On October 27, 2011 at 6:05 pm

Hey Graham,

While gliding, the controls are inverted — that means, after dive bombing, you need to hold down on the controller to fly up. You won’t be able to maintain upward momentum for long, though.

Hope that helps!

Pete0999

On October 29, 2011 at 8:51 pm

Graham, you have to do a very steep dive in order to pick up enough velocity to climb. most of the jumps need about 3 dives and climbs – when you are within range of the ice platform you will be able to grapple to it. It’s quite hard, you need carefully controlled glide skills

Pete0999

On October 30, 2011 at 12:20 am

staff – you need to send the remote batarang thru the electricity – it will pick up a charge – you then need to make that same batarang reverse, fly thru an opening in a door and hit the fuse box! Takes practice. I first worked on getting it thru the electricity and back into the room with the fuse box. when that worked most times I then concentrated on hitting the fuse box. iTs pretty unforgiving, I touched the fuse box quite a few times but it doesn’t unlock unless u hit the red button. that’s some damn accurate flying!

blackstar

On October 31, 2011 at 2:00 am

I am stuck on first pedastel I can not get up lift from gliding controls I am always going towards the ground. And no it is not RT dive bomb i am hitting I hit it and let off and can not get Batman to glide up he still glides down towards ground. What is going on???

blackstar

On October 31, 2011 at 2:07 am

Even reading the info up above has no justice to making him go upwards, inverted or not I tried both ways on control settings moving left stick I can get him to go towards ground so much easier then getting Batman to stay a drifting for further flight, is there another button to press for uplift, cause the Left control stick is not doing the job?

lanka

On October 31, 2011 at 7:35 am

thank you!……..

GamingGodfather

On October 31, 2011 at 8:31 am

The only way to add lift to dive first. You can not glide up otherwise. One way I figured out the tower was to jump and glide to the left or right while tapping grapnel. What you need to get to are the antennae sticking out of the side of the tower. Other than that your cape doesn’t help much at all.
If there is something you can’t get to in the game you probably don’t have the equipment to do so. The steam is a good example and all will be made clear later if you pay attention.
One bit of advice, break everything you can while you are Batman. Raised walls are the main example. This will make your trophy hunt much easier with the Cat.

MC

On November 1, 2011 at 9:42 pm

How do you get to Nora Freeze I see all the henchmen by the door that’s locked and a wall to bust in but how do you crash in I’m not sure what to do

Jake

On November 2, 2011 at 2:57 am

Side mission: hot and cold
So frustrating. I’m in the steel mill and trying to open the elevator door after I’ve taken out the 3 goons in it. I’ve tried the industrial motor and all it does is move it up and down. Please help

Rory

On November 2, 2011 at 5:32 am

MC ignore the door all the goons are guarding you cant get in that way anyway facing the door turn right and go towards the water make an ice raft and jump on it then you should see another entrance under the building use your bat claw to pull yourself close go through the door and you should be inside…

Terry

On November 2, 2011 at 6:59 am

After first changing inot Batman, there are 3 or ? with buttons under them on one of the rooftops. I bataranged one of them and a 5-second timer went off. What are these?

trevor

On November 3, 2011 at 5:13 pm

cant find freezes wife found a door in the location shes sopose to be in any suggestions?

Dave

On November 4, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Tip for the remote control batarang: after you throw it, release the left trigger and then hold it down again to turn on the brake. Makes a huge difference.

Awesome game

Sam

On November 5, 2011 at 8:42 am

@trevor
At the north dock, you need to throw a freeze mine into the water and grapple your way over to the wall where you are able to spray an explosive gel on it. Explode it and grapple your way across and enter the doorway. You can figure it out from there.

Sam

On November 5, 2011 at 8:50 am

I have a couple of questions. I just completed the game twice, once of the original story and one on story plus. I am trying to stop the random acts of violence, but I can’t seem to find any after I completed the game. Anyone know what to do?
Also, I am trying to complete the physical challenges for batman, but I can’t because I only need to dive for over 50 meters and I tried diving at the top of wonder tower, but it only goes up to 49.2 meters. Anyone know how I can dive for over 50 meters?
This is the only challenge left and it’s driving me crazy.

Sam

On November 5, 2011 at 8:54 am

@Terry
You need to spray an explosive gel on 3 of the ?’s where you are able to. Explode them and throw the batarang at the last one and it will unlock the trophy.

Chris

Is there a sweet spot I have to hit with the Remote Electrical Charge to open doors?? Cuz none seem to be working….

Kevin Thielenhaus

On November 14, 2011 at 8:17 am

Using the REC, or Remote Electric Charge, you can fire two different shots — on the X-Box 360, use the Right Trigger or Right Button, both shots have different effects. Try both on generators to open doors to figure out which works.

Ross

On November 15, 2011 at 12:11 pm

PLEASE HELP THIS IS FRUSTRATING ME SO MUCH!!

Dalika5

On November 30, 2011 at 2:25 pm

I’m stuck on the Zsasz side mission. I’ve found his hideout and can get through the water trials with ease but when I get to the part with the bat claw and the wall ring I don’t know what to do. I’m sure it’s obvious but still unaware of what I should do.

Jad

On December 1, 2011 at 4:23 pm

Its very tricky at first.. I also thought that you should use batclaw on the ring, but what you actually must do is to zipline your way to zsasz.. Fire the first zipline then quickly press r2(if you’re using ps3) and aim the second zipline going to zsasz then fire.. By doing so, you will land directly on the bridgelike platform where you can take zsasz down from behind.. Dalika5..

On December 2, 2011 at 8:45 am

Right the only bit I’m stuck on is the identity theft 2nd victim. Right ok. I got to the potential identity theft witness. He has no disappeared (gone for a cup of tea I guess) what I can’t find is, the forensic trail: murder victims blood labelled 3 and 4. I have environmental analysis everywhere. Someone please help? Also with catwomen I’ve done her story but if you notice on the map the building at the most northern point is poison ivory’s place, now you can enter but cat women tells me I need all her gear before taking her on. On the D pad I have the whip, gallop and. the catdrops, what else is the and how do I get it? Cheers ears

I am stuck in the fight sequence with Ra’s al Ghul, where he takes Talia has his hostage and threatens Batman to join the Assassins League or he will kill Talia. Than Batman was supposed to throw Ra’s sword and take out his sonic batarang. But in my case he is not taking out his sonic batarang and is standing there staring Ra’s al Ghul and Talia holding Ra’s sword. I have tried every botton but nothing is happening. If someone knows the solution to the problem, please do reply.

does the game end after you play as catwoman and then you switch to batman outside of the museum? (when you first learn of the map points where you can switch characters)
its after you beat twoface and get all of catwoman’s loot back. i just need to know because there hasnt been any new primary mission updates since

In the clandar man area its not a cyptographic sequencer panel, it’s a fuse box that needs to be broken by sending a remote controlled batarang through the electric shock waves upstairs in the back hallway then send it through downstairs over the gate and dorectly into the fuse box to get the Calendar Man Riddler Trophy.

Zach

On January 4, 2012 at 10:11 am

To: “fox”. You must get the Remote Control Bataran out and Hold R2 or Right Trigger and it well send a rebound batarang which will subsequently bounce off te wall and. Hist Rā’s al Ghul on the back of the head saving Talia.

Zach

On January 4, 2012 at 10:57 am

@Arkham i was stuck there too you must send the batarang through the electric shock lines and then U-turn it back through the flood gates will then open.

Zach

On January 4, 2012 at 11:35 am

For #1 you can also just dive through instead of using the time consuming Explosive Gel. Or if you have New Game Plus and are playing it and you have all the upgrades you can do a quick explosive gel by pressing L1 and ‘Square’ simultaneously.

Zach

On January 5, 2012 at 1:17 pm

#13 you can also walk up to it and just press action button which is use.

Kevin Thielenhaus

On January 6, 2012 at 11:47 am

Hi Shelly!

All you need to do is run towards the door, then hold the crouch button. You’ll slide right under the door! Sliding might take some practice, but that’s how you get underneath low and narrow areas.

right for anybody stuck it the bottom of the lift shaft (in the saw mill basement) what you have to do is use the electric gun 2 push the lift up but before it drops back down push it up again, the lift should move higher in the lift shaft allowing u to grapple to the top of the broken lift

Game came to an end after demon trials and stuck trying to free Talia from Ra’s al Ghul. I tried pushing every button and nothing works. Cannot drop sword to get reverse bat a rang.

Suppose o be a cross hair to show up on where to throw it – nothing is working. Do not know what buttons to push or anything – tried everything with keyboard and mouse buttons

Package said game made in Mexico – I guess that is why game is messed up

shmooie69

On February 8, 2012 at 6:50 pm

you need reverse batarang upgrade before entering demon trials and saving talia from Ras Al Ghull

Thanks for telling us that bull before getting there – that is why keyboard does not work cause you dont have the upgrades

Game is beginning to suck

shmooie69

On February 28, 2012 at 8:09 pm

found the solution to the Ra’s Al Ghul problem where people get stuck. Where he takes Talia Hostage and you need the reverse batarang to save her.

Its a computer bug in the game.

Solution is to go to Batman Installer on computer start up screen / main menu and go to Batman Installer

Go to settings

Adjust screen resolution to 640 x 480 and put on windowed instead of full screen

Set other graphic settings to low

Replay from last checkpoint and Batman should run around quicker. At the point where Talia is taken Hostage, the reverse batarang info popped up on the screen and can finally use it

Hopefully this helps people on pcs where they get stuck

shmooie69

On February 28, 2012 at 8:18 pm

go to game Launcher in computer main screen not installer’

I guesss in start up screen it would say batman launcher

Then set settings to low

Have you tried hacking the console near the door? Use Detective mode if you’re have trouble finding it.

Hope that helps!

On April 15, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Quick question: Does the walkthrough also tell you about the riddler trophies/challenges, hidden stuff, achievements, etc. as you progress through the story, or do you have to find out about that stuff from it’s own guide?

Shadow Fangs

On April 18, 2012 at 12:07 pm

For anyone who is struggling to get out of GCPD building:

I was too and it was really annoying me. Although the REC doesn’t seem to open the shutter if you aim it, if you do quickfire (4,4 on PC) it works. Strange but true.

There’s no need for yelling! I think we can help.

Step 1: Don’t panic!

Step 2: Tell me where you’re stuck. Please be specific! If you’re having a problem at a point in the guide, tell me which section / numbered entry.

It’s no fun getting stuck, and we want to help.

Please email me if you have any suggestions why it’s not showing. Thanks!
