Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

Serial Killer

Track down the serial killer  

This side-quest (Identity Thief) is quite a bit harder to trigger. You need to basically be standing on top of the body for the game to register you've found it. Again, follow the numbers on the map below to proceed through the questline. If you are having trouble triggering the other locations try again later once you get further in the story or reload the city by entering and leaving a building or quitting to the menu and starting the game up again.

I doubt its Zsas since there is a "Dial Z for murder" achievement

zsas doesnt have bandages on his head, and someone else has stated the dial Z for murder is linked to zsas.

To get this you have to complete the "Identity Theft" Side Mission (I think.)

its definitely Hush. but he just mocks you and leaves, so maybe he'll show up in DLC.

There are 3 victims total (All in the same area ,on the left side of the map, and in close proximity to each other) and once you find him and enter his base, You enjoy a small cut scene and hack open the metal cage and leave through the door and there you go

Never got the opportunity to finish? Only the first victim popped up automatically as a side mission. After that however there was nothing. Is it like the Dead Shot one, where each victim will pop up on it's own, or do I have to stumble upon them manually from now on, like the assault on political prisoners? I've just finished the game and still nothing. Also I have to ask as a spoiler, did they reference Batman knowing who he is? Because I found it a little weird that he didn't know right away. Continuity wise in the timeline of Batman I thought he'd encountered Hush by this point.

I found a real good map at this link. Like everything else in the game, it is not exactly the easiest to find on your own.

For anyone who hasn't managed to get past the first body...

The second and third bodies only came to notice after I had completed my game and was collecting Riddler Trophies in free-roam.

They happened in quick succession and this was commented on by Batman, for this reason, I think it is scripted to be a post-game feature.

I found the second body no problem but can't scan it. Anyone else having this issue?

I've already beat the game and complated a number of side missions and still no sign of this one.

@ 19 Did you follow "thessnake03" link? It shows you where the bodies are, but for the last body you need to find the Riddler's hideout and collect a lot more riddler secrets.

# 14 yur right there is definitely gonna be another game otherwise why would they have ended it like that unless rocksteady was just being lazy. And it would be pretty sick to see hush as the main villain in a game I hope they do that.

Seeing as they have confirmed future arkham titles (that's right, plural) I think it is safe to say we will see Hush again. I would recommend completing new game plus and listening after the credits to hear Harley signing Momma's gonna buy you a mocking bird. Major hints to Hush and Harley alliance? Or just rocksteady hammering it home that she is pregnant for those who didn't see the test? My money is in the first one =]

Only after getting the Genius achievement the second victim popped up.

Hush and Azrael are both going to be in "upcoming" titles. Batman says he'll look into both "tomorrow."
And for those who still haven't found all three bodies, they are all around the Ace Chemicals building. You just have to be at a certain progress threshold in the game before Batman will notice them. I found the bodies before that threshold and neither time would Batman scan. Then when I got far enough and went back to them he suddenly realizes he's looking at identity theft victims. Cool

I found the second victim by the courthouse after I beat the riddler mission; Genious Achievement.

The third popped up when I got just to the south of Ace Chemical building.

finished the game. got all the riddler trophies and riddles. finished every single other side quest. ran around the fucking ace chemical building. nothing happened. i'm like at 35% of the side quest or something, i think i found two bodies. so frustrating. nearly finished my ngp playthrough and on that save i have one body. seriously wtf.

Comment #37 by superdupergizmo

to anyone this might help: i had to finish ngp for the case to continue on my hard playthrough. weird. all the corpses showed up in five minutes.

I'm getting frustrated. I have found the first body, fully scanned it. Nothing pops up for a trail, however, I have found the political prisoner to talk to after following the trail, but no trail. Help!

Friday, December 14, 2012 @ 09:00:48 AM

#18 I also had a lot of trouble scanning the second victim, i was right on top of it but Batman wouldn't acknowledge it.
Anyway, I went off to do something else, when I returned I walked up to it from the street after hopping a fence, Batman started talking about it straight away and I could continue with the quest. This was on New Game + and I'm sure I had it the first time too, probably a glitch so just leave for a bit and try again if it ain't working
