If you want to leave MarkTheAmazing a tip for writing this Batman: Arkham Asylum guide you can do so here.


So here's the story. you've just captured Joker from what the Joker does best: Crime. You take him to Arkham Asylum, where he really belongs. But you do not know what the night will have in store for you, The Batman.

You escort him to his cell, or so you thought.

When you finally get to the IC Unit, you can't go in so you watch him go in...

But of course, somehow, someway, he escaped. He's actually in complete control of the Asylum. This was his plan all along.

Now, the game will introduce you to the combat style of the game. Square or X, depending on what console you're on, or whatever key you have for hitting on PC.

The Joker will now let you in so he can have some fun with you. c:

Now, go to the Patient Pacification Center which should be down the hall, to the left and down that hall.

Welcome to the Madhouse...

Then, you'll need to take out Zsasz by going on a gargoyle and glide kicking him.

Afer that, to get outta there, you'll have to break the vent that is on the left wall.

Now when you get outta the vents and go down the hall, there'll be people in a room getting contaminated with Joker's toxic gas.

So grapple up to the vents to enter the room.

You'll have to rescue some of the guards on the upper level.

Then, to rescue the ones on the lower level, you'll have to destroy the control panels down below with your Batarang.

And you got it!

Now, you've rescued all the guards and some patients and you can advance to the next area.

After following the directions on the ground, you'll meet the Joker again.

He'll release a mutated inmate on you. A little mini boss, I guess.

All I did was walk around until he died since he will because of the formula he took.

A guy will open a security door that's to the left of you and you'll ask him if he can bring the elevator up.

But he can't. Plus, the Joker has gotten ahold of Commisoner Gordon so you must save him!

Saving Commisoner Gordon

According to Oracle, you'll have to go back to the office where you first met Commisioner Gordon tonight, so you can get some evidence.

When you get there, you'll find some evidence which is vapor evidence. To find Gordon, you'll need to follow this in Detective Mode.

You'll end up at the Secure Transit when you follow his trial. You'll meet Harley Quinn who ends up breaking the elevator. So you'll have to find another way up.

After you shimmy, glide and jump your way up there, you'll meet some inmates with interesting characteristics...

Now, after beating up those henchmen, break the vent to advance to the next area.

When you get to the next area, there'll be armed henchmen that you'll have to silently takedown.

You'll have to climb the gargoyles above to go behind them.

After you're done with that, upen the vent in the room with the inmate that was talking to the Joker.

You'll the enter the Intensive Treatment Lobby where you'll have to take out more armed henchmen. Just go up the gargoyles and wait to attack.

When you try to get out, you find that Officer boles has not made Joker you have to find another way.

Then the Riddler will contact you about his riddels being spread around the island, blah blah blah. We're focusing on the main story right now. So go through this door which is to the right of the lobby.

After talking to an officer and going through some dorrs, there'll be a vent you'll have to break open so you can enter the surface of the island.

Now you're at the surface! Go to the door that leads to Arkham North.

Some of the inmates will be trashing the Batmobile. you gotta save that sweet ride! So proceed to Arkham North.

After saving the Batmobile, you'll get a new toy! Some explosive gel c:

You're gonna have to use it to destroy the wall to make a way to get to Arkham West.

Now when you get there, just go straight to that house ahead of you. Thats where you'll need to go.

Once you're on the roof, there'll be a weak part of the roof which you'll need to destroy with the explosive gel.

Now enter the door that's to you right.

You'll end up here. There's a vent below to your right.

Break it and proceed to the next area.

So, now you're here. A tunnel of nothingness. Just head straight.

And yet another vent to go through thats to the left of the tunnel.

You'll end up in the sanatorium, where there's more henchmen to get silently.

After you take 'em out, a doctor will tell you that there's more doctors being held hostage. So you're gonna have to go save them!

I first went to the patient observation room. This one is simple.

It's another break-the-control-panels-to-save-the-people one. Just break get inside the room, by a vent of course, and destroy the panels to resume air ventilation.

All done! Off to the next hostage!

The next one I went to was the Surgery Room one. This one is also easy.

You'll just have to defeat some henchmen and that's it.

Doneeeee. Now off to the next hostage!

The X-Ray Room has to be the easiest one!

Just spray some explosive gel on one wall...

And the next one...

And KABOOM! Detonate.

Now go back to the sanatorium.

Even more henchmen will come. So take them out.

Enter the elevator to go find Gordon.

You'll arrive here. Just go on ahead.

Explode this wall to get into the next area.

You'll find Gordon! But he gets dragged out of sight...

Break the vent to go get Gordon!

But you were to late...he's dead.

Go on down that hall to find his killer.

You find yourself in a morgue...

There's nothing to do in here but open the body do so...

It's Bruce's father! Why is he here?!

And the next one is his mother! What's going on here?!

Now the last bodybag...

It's Scarecrow! Of course!

Now, you're in a wasteland in your mind.

This part is sorta easy. Just avoind being seen by Scarecrow and get to the searchlight which will destroy him.

Boom. You got him!

You'll snap outta it when you destroy Scarecrow. Now get outta there.

It turns out that wasn't Commisoner Gordon who was dead. It was a guard but of course Scarecrow made you think it was Gordon.

Proceed to this room to see if Gordon is in here...

Just follow Joker's directions he gave you.

You'll end up in this room where Gordon is being held. But there are henchmen down below. You'll have to take them out.

Or just go up here without being noticed :P Basically, take out Harley.

Thats it! You saved Gordon! :D

But they have Bane...uh oh...

It's pretty simple to beat him. Make him hurt himself until a bar of health is empty. Then do a combo on him to take out the tubes that has the TITAN Formula.

And that's pretty much it. A cutscene will show how Bane died.

Now you'll have to get to the Batcave on Arkham island.

Getting the Titan Formula

It's in Arkham North so head there!

Go up the roof of the Intensive Treatment building and the courtyard beside it is where the cave will be at.

There you are!

Just go straight and you;ll get there. A cutscene will show Batman flying to the cave.

When you get there, Batman will do some research and find out what Joker is trying to do.

You'll also recieve the Batclaw! A gadget that can pull objects.

Now, get out of the Batcave to find Dr.Young.

You use the Batclaw to open vents from a far distance, like this one.

You'll get to the sewers when you go through that vent and go down the hall to the left. You're gonna have to get to the top to find where Dr.Young is.

When you get up there, you'll just have to go down the hall and you'll find a weak wall to explode to proceed to the next area.

Behind the wall will be a door. Enter it.

Now, since you're on the surface, go find a rout to the Arkham Mansion where Dr.Young should be at.

Take the Arkham East Door.

Just go straight ahead and you'll find the mansion. Grapple hook up there since you cant go through the front door.

Open the vent with your Batclaw. Then enter it to get inside Arkham Mansion.

When you get inside the Mansion, get to the ground and grapple to another surface ahead of you.

Then, break open the vent to proceed to the next area.

When you get to the Main Hall, grapple up to a gargoyle.

Then skip the fighting and get to the ground where the door is.

Enter it to proceed.

Continue down the hall until you get into this door. Go inside it.

Now this part is a little're gonna have to take out the inmates silently again to save the hostages and advance to the next area.

After you're done with that, go up these stairs and go into the door on the right.

Go up some stairs and break this vent to advance.

Go to another vent that's ahead of you.

You'll arrive at her office.

Break the vent that's to the side to advance.

You'll be inside her office now.

Scan for evidence which will be fingerprints of Dr.Young.

Now just follow her tracks!

You'll end up at the Library after following for awhile. You'll have to save some hostages now.

Grapple up the first level and break the vent that's on that level.

You'll end up here and now grapple up there.

This is where you'll end up. Now you gotta break the rope that's supporting the chandlier so it can break through the glass.

There ya gooooooo. Now go save the hostages!

After that, you'll find the Formula that Dr.Young made.

After that, advance inside this door to get to the next area.

You'll be at, Wayne Manor? Just proceed...

Then while you're walking everything will go white...

The Mansion will be turning into streets...

You'll faint and end up somewhere...

You'll be a kid! In front of your dead parents!

Enter this door to proceed...

This look familiar? You're under Scarecrow's control now.

Again, just advance to the searchlights so you can kill him.

There'll be some henchmen, just take them out.

And...Boom! You got him!

You'll end up back at the Main Hall in Arkham Mansion...

Break the bell so you can get down and proceed.

Now, you'll have to rescue Dr.Young at the Warden's office.

Just enter the door that's ahead of you.

Just go down that hall and it'll lead you to this door enter it to get to the Warden's Office.

This part is kinda easy. Just aim the Batarang to hit Zsasz so he'll let go of Dr.Young. Next, she'll ry to open the safe to get the formula but she'll explode with the safe and die.

Great. More henchmen. Take 'em out!

Scan for Evidence around the area.

Destroying the Titan Formula

Your new objective is to destroy the production of the TITAN Formula that's happening in Botnical Gardens. SO you'll have to get out of the Mansion and to Botanical Gardens.

Go thru the Medical Facility Door to get there.

Now go straight ahead to the Penitentary.

Now just proceed to find the Warden.

Follow the path until you get to this door which will lead you to the cell blocks.

Just go around some of the cells to find this door.

Here is where Poison Ivy is held at.

Behind her will be where the Security Control Room is. Thats where the Warden will be at.

When you find him, you'll get another gadget! It can hack into any door's security and open it.

You use it first to get outta the room.

Now head back to Botanical Gardens.

But first, Harley Quinn is back and doesnt wanna give up.

Hack into the security to stop the electricity current in the floor.

Now you can exit and find Harley.

When you get to the Guard Room, there'll be a surprise.

There'll be guards tied up above water with an electric current.

So hack into the system to shut off the electricity.

Onto the next panel to hack...

Then cut the rope off so they can get down.

Hack into the door so you can get Harley Quinn.

Make sure you go through the Main Cell Block...

And into the Controlled Access area.

There'll be a vent ahead on the ceiling to go into.

That'll lead you into the Extreme Incarceration area where you'll have to defeat waves of inmates and avoid the floor that will get an electrical current off and on, on different floors. So two tips for this little battle. Remember to move to different floors when the electrical current ets turned on for that area. And counter a lot of the attacks. Basically, DON'T DIE (:

And boom. Done with that. The door in the middle will open. Enter it to proceed.

Now, go to Botanical Gardens which is in Arkham East.

And boom. You're there c:
Im hoping you know your way around the island by now.

When you go down the lobby/hall thingy, hack into the security so you can open the electricity fence thing.

There'll be more armed guards you gotta take out.

After that, enter the door that's on the right side of the building.

Now enter the next door which leads to the Glasshouse Generation Room. Hack into the security to shut off the electricity that will be in the Flooded Corridor.

After that, enter the door to the north.

Joker will talk to you and block the way to get to him. SInce you already turned off the electricity, just go through. There'll be a grate on the wall. Rip it off and go through.

You'll end up in some chamber. There'll be a weak wall to destroy so you can get to the other side.

There'll be a door ahead, enter it.

Another vent to go through.

Some henchmen to beat up...

Now down some stairs and into the door.

More guards to take out silently. :P
But this time, the first guy you take out HAS to be the leader who's up there in that room.

There ya goooooooo.

Now get the rest c:

Now hack into this panel to stop the waterline to see Joker.

And, there'll be two mutated beasts. Great. Get 'em!

Now hack into security to open the door for the way out.

Batman will call in a delivery and you'll get the line launcher.

Use it to get to the other side to the door.

Walk down the hall to get to the other door which will lead to the next room.

You're back at this area again. You can finally get to the other side.

Enter the door at the end of the hall.

Well, now you have to get to Croc's Lair to get a plant that will complete the antidote. Leave Botanical Gardens to get to Aaron Cash.

Head to Arkham North and launch a line to this building. Since the door is blocked off you'll have to get up to launch the line to the door that's above.

When you get inside, get on top of the vents and go forward. There'll be a vent at the end of the wall.

You're back here and there's more guards to take out. AND they planted explosives on the gargoyles. Tips: Go on top of the buiding in the middle after on a gargoyle. Get some of the soldiers by getting on the ground. Hav a plan to get out of sight though.

Also, there's a panel inside the buiding that you'll need shut off so the doors will open.

This door will be in the lower level of the lobby.

When you get to the end of the hallway, your screen will go insane. This is part of the game, do not be frightened.

The game will redo the introduction and you'll be the Joker...and the patient will be Batman... die.

Just kidding! you're in Scarecrow's world once again. And once again, there'll be some henchmen and searchights to destroy him.

And you're back into the real world...whatta dream.

The door will lead to the Scure Transit. Just jump down.

Hack into the panel to get the doors open so you can get to the sewers.

There'll be some henchmen to fight before you can get to Croc's Lair.

Now enter the door that's ahead to enter the sewers.

A cutscene will commence showing Scarecrow getting eaten by Croc. How nice. Advance up the sewer to get to where the plants are located.

Now, to get the samples you'll have to follow the distance meter on the screen and be VERY quiet. Like, crouch and walk. He will hear you sometimes. Just throw a batarang at him and he'll fall over. Thats all you really need to do. Stay quiet. Get the samples. Get outta there.

And when you're done and he's chasing you, the doors will close...

Wait for him to come close enough to detonate the explosives.

And there ya go! He's dead.

Now, just go back to the Batcave to analyze your antidote.

When you're done analyzing and whatnot, you'll get the Mega Super Ultra Batclaw! It can rip off walls now.

And now, you're gonna have to get to Botanical Gardens to stop Poison Ivy.

Getting out of the Batcave is a bit tricky.

Just go straight ahead and land on that little piece of land.

Go inside of it now.

Grapple up to get on top of it.

Now launch a line to get to that piece of land.

And there ya goooo. Off to Botanical Gardens! But first, go to the sewers to shut off the pumps since Scarecrow ruined the water. You'll have to fix it.

If you dont know how to get there, justgo back here and go up.

When you get to the top, break this wall so you can get in.

Now, get to the pump room!

Hack into the security panel to stop the pumps.

Now to the control room, here will be more guards to take out silently. Do so.

When you've taken them out, hack into this panel to stop the pumps in here.

Now, you can go to Botanical Gardens.

But first, a mutated visitor. Take him outtt.

There'll be some walls that you can break where the mutated guy came from. Break that so you can advance up.

When you get all the way up, there'll be a door. Enter it and proceed.

Destroy this wall to get to the surface of the island.

Now enter the Arkham North door.

As you walk up, there'll be a place where you can grapple.

So, grapple up there.

There'll be a door on the other side. Go inside it. It's a little shortcut to Arkham East.

Now enter the Arkham East door.

And there you go. Go through the flooded corridor, over the ditch of nothingness,

And into the door.

This boss battle is fairly simple. Just throw the batarang when she opens up and avoid the vines and stuff. Thats it.

Then spray explosive gel on her to get her really weak.

She'll get back up and you'll do the same thing. Batarang, avoid. Only difference is there are henchmen now.

Then you're done!

Now, go through the Arkham West door.

And go to the "party".

Defeating the Joker

Which will be here. Sorry, forgot what the building is.

The Joker will show up on a TV and say stuff but nothing much will happen.

Just kinda explodes.

Now go through the door to end this...

Now there'll be mutated henchmen and regular henchmen...well this'll be fun.

Sorry for skipping the cutscenes. But, after the Joker having a little fist fight with you and injecting you and him with the TITAN formula, you take the antidote for yourself. Now you have to fight him with your bare hands.

This boss is fairly easy. Just beat up his henchmen and when he looks the other way, use your batclaw to oull him down.

Then do some combos on him to damage him. Just keep repeating this.

And that's it. You're done with Batman: Arkham Asylum. Nice job!

Then you'll have to go back to fighting other crimes. Thanks for looking at this walkthrough. Hope you found this helpful!
