Batman wearing the XE Suit on top of GothCorp in Cold, Cold Heart.

The Extreme Environment Batsuit, usually shortened to the XE suit, is a Batsuit that helps Batman in extreme environments (mainly cold and cryovapor) and is used during the Cold, Cold Heart Incident.


By wearing the XE suit, Batman gains access to a new heat-based arsenal such as:

  • Thermo Charged Batarangs
  • Heat-based Takedowns
  • Thermal Gloves
  • Honeycomb structure insulates against extreme cold without increasing the suit's weight

Upgrades can be unlock for additional other features such as Quickfire Thermal Batarangs, an upgrade for their Thermal Gloves, and an Ice Escape Shockwave by completing various side missions around New Gotham.

After Arkham Origins Incident[]

Bruce envisioned the suit as a way to withstand extreme conditions such as subzero temperatures. It is unknown if the suit could withstand other environments as well.

A week after the Joker's defeat on Christmas Eve, after his initial encounters with the mysterious Mr. Freeze, Batman deploys the XE suit and its array of thermal-based weaponry to combat the enemy's cryotechnology.

It is unknown if the suit was still in use during the period of events of Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, or Arkham Knight or if the technology was simply incorporated into the newer models of the Batsuit.



  • The Batsuit drop off is similar to the drop off in Batman: Arkham City.
  • The Shock Gloves are replaced by the Thermal Gloves in the XE Suit.
  • The Double and Triple Batarang Upgrades can help you take down more enemies, including Mr. Freeze.
  • Upgrades to the XE Suit are given when doing side missions.
  • Before the release of the DLC, there was a mod that allowed the player to use an alpha version of the suit in the main story. It was absolutely textureless, but the Thermo-charged Batarangs were available for use as well as an electrical shockwave. It was later revealed to be this suit. Although players can still use a mod to play it in the main story.
  • Besides the new Batarangs, all other gadgets remain unchanged in the XE Suit.
  • This is the only suit Batman wears in the Arkham series that completely covers up Batman's face. It also is the only suit to change his voice, as an oxygen tank is needed for Batman to breathe (presumably to use in the event Batman was trapped underwater or in extreme temperatures). This makes Batman sound more robotic, and more like an underwater diver.
  • This is the first and arguably only special Batsuit Batman wore canonically in the Arkhamverse.
