Riot Shields are weapons used by enemies from Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Batman: Arkham Knight. They render their carrier untouchable by regular attacks, which forces the player to use advanced tactics against them. The easiest way to attack their carriers is to perform a Cape Stun, and then perform an Aerial Attack. They can also be taken out with a Special Combo Takedown, and the shield can be destroyed with the Disarm and Destroy move.

Shields were still being used by enemies during the events of Arkham Knight. Militia Brutes would use their suits tech to activate the shield.
- While performing an Aerial Attack on a shielded Henchman, the character could not be hit by other enemies. This was not the case when performing the move to other enemy types.
