You'll enter a large room and the camera will pan around before giving you control again. Oracle has uncovered that Joker has been creating an army for himself using Venom and Dr. Young to perform experiments.

Hop around the room until you find your way upwards. You'll come across two Joker Teeth, and then a Riddler Trophy. There's another Riddler Trophy in a column high up above. You'll have to hang on a ledge and climb around the back before climing up to the platform it resides on.

You'll finally come to a passageway with two more Joker Teeth and a door that leads to Surface Access.

Surface Access[edit]

Pick up the recording, then walk down the passage and blow up the wall. Leap across the pit and open the door to Arkham North.

There are gunmen in the watch towers, at least one is a sniper, and several henchmen on the ground in the center. Head to the Arkham East door and destroy the three Joker Teeth.

Arkham East[edit]

You'll be back at the ambulence, but there will be four henchmen and a high security henchman waiting for you. Enter through the next door and grapple up to the walk way. Take out the gunman. Hop down and float across. Grapple up to the other watch tower and kill the second gunman. Grapple to the top of this watch tower to find a Riddler Trophy.

There are two gunmen on top of the entrance to the building. One or two Joker Teeth are on the ground near the front door. If you enter you'll be greeted by two henchmen safely patrolling behind a forcefield door, and no way in.

Grapple your way to the rooftop, and walk around to find the Riddler Trophy. Climb back down to where the two gunmen were, and use the Batclaw on the grate high above. Climb through the passage and fall down.

Head back through the library door on the second level. You'll notice some strange visuals before heading into a new area.

Wayne Manor[edit]

This hallway goes on and on. The rain will continue as narrations of Bruce's past replay. When you reach the end, Batman will collapse and transform into his child self in front of what he believes are his parents. After a bit, the child will rise and you must walk him down the street and back into the hallway of the Mansion. Batman will regain his form, but the hallucinations continue as you pass through the door.

Scarecrow will appear once more, this time turning from side to side while pausing at each end of his search. Jump across the gap and run to the second hiding spot. Use the Batclaw to drop the crate and create an additional hiding spot. Again, drop the crate and move on.

Scarecrow will block your path and call up four skeletons to fight. They are no more difficult than one of Joker's basic thugs. Remember to use the Batclaw to pull enemies closer to you if they are stuck in Scarecrow's gaze.

Continue hopping across the platforms, slowly and safely.

You'll reach a second fight with skeletons, this time with six. Four of them wield swords.

Continue onwards to the gears. Grapple up past them, then hop across. This next second requires good timing to avoid Scarecrow.

Get close to the edge where it is still safe. Run and jump when Scarecrow turns, then leap across when the pendulum is away. Before climbing up the platform, wait for him to turn to your left. Hop up and run towards the camera and duck behind the fencing. Continue onwards and use the Bat Signal.

Walk forward and use the Batarang on the bell's rope. It will open the door to the East Wing Corridor.
