Scarecrow Nightmare (Arkham Asylum)[]

Batman is placed on a floating graveyard, from which skeletons rise in waves. These skeletons come in standard campaign variety, such as Sword wielders (Which act the same as pipes) or Skeleton Titans. There are also skeleton variants that wield weapons unique to this challenge map, such as Torches (Which act the same as Stun Batons), Glowing Dual Knives (These skeletons act like High Security Henchmen) and Assault Rifles.

Taking even one point of damage instantly kills Batman. There are no medals to earn, making it purely a survival challenge. The challenge was originally part of a GameStop pre-order deal, but is now free as part of the GOTY edition.

Trivia[]

  • In Arkham Knight, the nightmares are the only DLC challenges that appear on free-roam. This hints that they were possibly originally meant to be included in the base game, but were cut.
  • The challenges are the only way the Batmobile can be seen on the Island where Lady of Gotham is located.
