"Encased in cryogenic ice. Ice can be shattered using a heated projectile."

These are the same as normal security panels but are encased in ice that prevents them from being hacked, so to access them, break the ice with a thermal Batarang.

Batman: Arkham Asylum[]

The hack-able access panels in Arkham Asylum are very simple and don't require passwords, just a wavelength to unlock.


Single-use console[]

This kind of access panel is found all over Arkham asylum and they break immediately after receiving the frequency(being hacked). and then cannot be reused.

Multi-use console[]

This console is rare and is only found at certain points like the penitentiary gas-filled room, it must be hacked three times before being deactivated but still cannot be reused. note this is the same console that protects Mr. Freeze's titan cure safe in batman Arkham city. see the gallery below.

The ones in Batman Arkham City are very different from those in Arkham Asylum in. Now they have passwords instead of wavelengths. Another thing to note is all panels show what you are hacking and their target access. examples are. Hacking MCP TYGER mainframe. Target door access and target security console.

the security scale, notice it's a TYGER panel so it's in the red.

The security scale shows up around the lock on for hack device. the scale indicates the strength of the security and has nine measurements. green is low, yellow is medium, orange is slightly higher than medium, and red is high. there is also a second security scale that appears when on the hacking screen. this one also appears in Arkham Origins.


All three can't be hacked until they get their associated codes in the story. when a hack is completed on all variants(except reusables) the lock icon will become a green unlock icon that flashes on the screen several times before permanently disappearing. note all of these can be hacked early if you're on a new game plus and have obtained the codes for them on your previous game. Also, note that none of these can be hacked while a [communication disruptor] or backpack jammers are active.

These are difficult to hack while their security level is always red and so is their hacking screen. along with that, the lock is always red too, this shows that the security is very strong.
