While you play, your character will level up, but if you focus on specific areas these Batman Arkham Knight tips will help you level up faster and smarter so that you aren’t left without the skills you need to beat an enemy.
Our Batman Arkham Knight tricks and tips will focus on the PS4 and Xbox One, as the PC version is no longer available. You don’t need to follow every tip in this guide, but it will at the very least help you get started on which skills to upgrade and how to go about earning more WayneTech Points faster.
Unlike some games, when you level up faster in Batman Arkham Knight you won’t be playing against better players online. The biggest focus here is to unlock all of the cool Batman gadgets and upgrades that will allow you to fly around Gotham faster and beat the bad guys easier. Even as you level up, the thugs and villains you encounter are still a challenge.
Here are the essential Batman Arkham Knight tips to level up faster and tricks to earn skill points quicker.
Redeem Any Bonus Items
If you pre-ordered Batman Arkham Knight you likely got a digital upgrade, and you may also get this with later orders. There is a code on your receipt or in your email form the place you purchased the game that should deliver several skills free of charge.
Best Buy included a WayneTech Booster Pack that includes an Explosive Gel takedown, Aerieal Juggle, Batarangs while gliding and a Batmobile firepower upgrade. This will help you in several early missions. If you forgot to redeem this you can do it now and any skills you purchased will remain active, but you will get a refund on the WayneTech points so that you can upgrade something else.
Stick to the Story
For the first part of the game you should stick to the main story instead of taking out the random bad guys that you hear as you move throughout the city. You want to make your way towards the Ace Chemicals plant so that you can earn a collection of upgrades. This will also progress the story and help you earn upgrades from Lucius Fox that will arrive from the Batwing.
The videos above will help you walk through the first part of the Batman Arkham Knight story that will deliver a Batmobile upgrade and a new Batsuit without spending any of your WyaneTech points.
Play AR Challenges to Level Up Faster
There are a number of AR Challenges throughout Gotham. You can unlock some of these by playing the story, and others will appear on the map and are easy to unlock by completing small in game challenges like ejecting from the Batmobile and flying for 300 meters or diving off the edge of a building.
In these simulations you can learn how to use your skills and you will also earn a variety of WayneTech Points that will help you upgrade your skills and unlock Batman’s gadgets. While we do recommend playing the story, after you get past Ace Chemicals it is also a good idea to spend some time playing through AR Challenges to earn points that will help you upgrade your character faster.
