Batman: Arkham City Walkthrough
Batman: Arkham City is once-again developed by Rocksteady Studios and builds upon the intense and atmospheric foundation of that game. The entire city of Arkham is open to explore and serves as the new “hometown” of Gotham City’s most ruthless gangs, thugsters and insane criminal minds. Arkham City features the award-winning gameplay of Arkham Asylum but entirely beefed up for this sequel, and set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district withint he heart of Gotham City. Brand-new story elements are drawn together alongside an all-star cast of characters and murderous villains taken from throughout the Batman universe. A range of new and enhanced gameplay features deliver the ultimate Dark Knight experience on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Key Game Features:
- Become the Dark Knight – Experience a genuinely authentic Batman universe, advanced by compelling gameplay on every front, from intense high-impact combat with street thugs, to nail-biting stealth segments, to multifaceted forensic investigations to epic boss encounters with murderous super-villains into compelling new glimpses into the tortured psychology of The Caped Crusader.
- Play as Catwoman – Catwoman marks her debut as a fully playable character with her own storyline within the main quest that is seamlessly interwoven with Batman’s. Catwoman features enhanced navigation skills, intense new combat moves and and wicked Gadgetry that combine to deliver a fully unique experience from her male counterpart.
- Advanced FreeFlow Combat – Walking the dark streets is more difficult than ever as Batman faces highly coordinated, simultaneous attacks from ass sides with mobs that bring heavy weaponry and all-new enhanced artificial intelligence to the battles. However Batman easily counters these attacks with twice the number of combat animations as before and double the range of takedowns, counters and melee attacks available to the tough superhero.
- New Gadgets – All-new Gadgets make Batman: Arkham City cooler than ever before. These include the Cryptographic Sequencer V2 and Smoke Pellets, and new features of previous Gadgets that return and expand the depth of Batman’s Utility Belt.

- Arkham Has Moved – Following the events of the first game, new Gotham City Mayor Quincy Sharp has ordered the relocation of Arkham Asylum’s inmates… Into a sprawling new location. A super-prison that is five times larger than Arkham Island, and featured a much more diverse range of industrial districts, iconic locations and famous Gotham City landmarks.
- Huge Cast of Characters – The ecclectic cast of beloved characters fans know and love has grown by leaps and bounds in Batman: Arkham City. Players will encounter everyone from Catwoman and The Joker to The Riddler, Two-Face, The Penguin, Harley Quinn, Calender Man, Hugo Strange and many others.
- Featured Voice Over Talent – Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy bring their voices back to reprise their characters of Batman and The Joker, respectively, alongside an all-star line-up of additional voice talent that joins them.
How to beat the Two-Face Boss:
Two-Face is really easy to take out. Simply attack the thugs until you can make your way around and up to the stairs. Once you do this you’ll have an open line to Two-Face’s back from which you can pummel him to a pulp. VICTORY IS YOURS!
In part 2 of the Batman: Arkham City walkthrough for this section, we make our way into the Steel Mill via the main chimney.
Time to rescue Dr. Stacy Baker.
In part 2 of the Batman: Arkham City walkthrough for this section, we fight the Mr. Hammer boss.
How to beat the Mr. Hammer Boss:
The first order of business is to take out the grunts around Mr. Hammer, while keeping a close and watchful eye on (what else), his hammer. Making sure not to get smashed by it. Use the Remote Electrical Charge to stun Mr. Hammer and use Batman’s speed and agility and Mr. Hammer’s slow pace to your advantage. When stunned dart in and get a few blows before backing off. Mix and repeat and Mr. Hammer should be done for in a few.
PS: This is also where you begin to work with Bane to destroy all the TITAN containers in Arkham City.
