Batman[edit]

Batarang[edit]

Select Aim Throw Quickfire
Down dpad L1 button R1 button L1 buttonArcade-Modifier-Tap.png

Batman's signature weapon. Use it to stun enemies or hit objects that are out of reach. Use the Quickfire Batarang to unleash up to three rapid-fire Batarangs in the middle of combat without losing your combo. A Quick Batarang throw is also very effective when discovered by a single armed enemy, stunning them temporarily to provide enough time to escape.

Batclaw[edit]

Select Aim Fire Quickfire
Up dpad L1 button R1 button L1 button + Triangle button

Fires a claw-like projectile that interacts with out of reach objects and pulls them toward you. In combat, use the Batclaw on enemies and immediately follow up with a Strike attack (Square button) to perform the Batclaw Slam. This does double the damage of a normal Strike but takes more time to perform, leaving you vulnerable to attack.

Batclaw Disarm[edit]

This upgrade to the Batclaw enables you to surprise an attacker armed with a firearm by snatching the weapon from their hands from a distance. This can be used effectively in combat situations using the Quickfire Batclaw.

Explosive Gel[edit]

Freeze Blast[edit]

When used in combat, enemies will panic and attack wildly, often hitting each other. Requires a recharge time after use.

Sonic Batarang[edit]

Once deployed, the Sonic Batarang gives off a high-pitched alarm that will interfere with nearby enemies wearing heartbeat monitors, causing them to investigate.

Note: The Sonic Batarang will have no effect on enemies who are not equipped with an armband heartbeat monitor.

Sonic Shock Batarang[edit]

Detonate

Upgrade to the Sonic Batarang which integrates a high power electrical charge that can be detonated once deployed. This will overload the heartbeat monitor of a nearby henchman, incapacitating him.

Note: The Sonic Shock Batarang will have no effect on enemies who are not equipped with an armband heartbeat monitor.

Line Launcher[edit]

Use the Line Launcher to rapidly move horizontally across areas. While riding the Line Launcher you can aim in a new direction and fire this again to change direction without dropping to the ground. Offensively, this gadget can also be used to take down unaware enemies by moving above them and using the Takedown button (Triangle button) as you approach to drop down and take them out in one move. Note that this powerful move will alert nearby enemies.

This upgrade to the Line Launcher enables you to flip up on top of the zip line and use it as a tightrope. This can be used to create new positions to observe and attack enemies, or to collect Riddler trophies. While on the cable, you can move above an enemy to perform a Drop Attack or Glide Kick.

Disruptor[edit]

Select Aim Jam
Right dpadRight dpad L1 button R1 button

The Disruptor is used to remotely shut down freeze-based weapons. It may be used up to two times before a recharge period is required.

Firearm Jammer[edit]

Remotely disables enemy firearms without the enemy being aware that the gun they are carrying has become jammed. Once disabled, these targets will be shown as blue in Detective Mode so they can be easily identified. This gadget can also be used to disable TYGER sentry guns and to temporarily disable TYGER helicopter machine guns. After two uses of the Disruptor, a recharge period is required.

Mine Detonator[edit]

Detonates proximity mines that have been placed in the environment. If timed correctly, the concussive effect of these explosions can be used to knock enemies out. Additionally, removing mines can be used to reveal secret areas or access Riddler trophies. The Disruptor device can only be used two times before a recharge period is required.

Cryptographic Sequencer[edit]

Select Aim Hack
DownLeft dpad L1 button R1 button

The Cryptographic Sequencer is used to hack into security consoles and unlock access to secure areas. After recovering an encryption key, the Sequencer enables you to lock on to secure radio broadcasts which are subsequently stored, tracked, and played back by the Batcomputer.

Cryptographic Range Amplifier[edit]

Increases the effective range of the Cryptographic Sequencer, allowing you to override out-of-reach security consoles and open up areas that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Cryptographic Power Amplifier[edit]

Freeze Cluster[edit]

Select Aim Throw
