Tips and Tricks[]

  • If You want to last longer during Officer Owens' shootout, shoot the guy who usually kills all players first.
  • If you do side missions during this, if going by the bridge body, you can also get the firefighter as he is pretty close by.
  • Collecting the REC Gun here will let you get Riddler Trophies and Shadow War done faster and earlier than usual.
  • At the Jeep fight, take to the sides of the street where it's harder to be hit.
  • At the Penthouse, you can take out the men at the front silently and deal with only 4 inside.
  • In New Game Plus, you can use the Disruptor to sabotage the man's Gun in the Penthouse.
  • In The Penthouse, near the top corner walls are lights and electrical boxes you can use to take out henchmen.
  • You can also use the Fear Takedown on The Rioters at The Firefighters, if on New Game Plus.
  • On New Game Plus, if your Fear Takedowns are Upgraded to 5, you can take out everyone at The Building near Panessa Studios and all but one at ACE Chemicals.
  • Also, if not on New Game Plus, you can use the Batmobile's Riot Suspressor to shoot the men at Panessa Studios, but this will not work at ACE as The Batmobile cannot enter or get close to that area.
