Batman: Arkham Knight – Heir to the Cowl

  • Unlocks at Chapter 3
  • You are to investigate reports of a masked vigilante
  • Rewards you with 8 Upgrade Points when complete

During this side mission you get to play as Azrael, but you must find him first by looking for the burning bat symbols dotted around Gotham.

Go to the first marker and you’ll find the symbol and Azrael. This challenge requires you to defeat the thugs without taking a hit.

For the second trial go over to Founders’ Island and the rooftops in southwest Otisburg. Here you will fight thugs and a Brute. Take the Brute down first and you must avoid the enemies throwing containers at you.

The third trial starts on Bleake Island, east of Chinatown and just west of the circular intersection. You need to beat the enemies on the rooftop here using the Batclaw as they have electrified armour. Take your time and you’ll complete this easily.

Once this is complete get over to the small island amongst the main islands to find another burning bat symbol. Here you have to fight ninja so be prepared to counter a lot. You’ll also need to avoid the blades of the other enemies. Once they’re dealt with them, go to the top of the clock tower, enter the room and access the computer.

You have to find specific markers in the footage here. The first is given to you, but you’ll find the next at 5:52 in the third column on the left, second row down. The third is at 16:25, second column from the left, third row down. The fourth is at 28:54, third column from the left, second row down. The final marker is at 41:35, one block down from the last one.

As you regain control of Azrael pick up the sword and walk up behind the entrance. Decision time; you can choose to kill Batman or break the sword…

Whichever choice you make completes the mission.
