Introduction:
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition is a 2.5D video game developed by Armature Studio and released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It was ported to console versions when it was originally on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. This game is based on the DC Comics vigilante Batman, it is a companion to the 2013 video game Batman: Arkham Origins, and is a part of the Batman: Arkham series. As Arkham veterans jumping into this side-scrolling Batgame, please remember -- this is not the full retail version. The combat system is completely different and clunky at times. This Deluxe Edition features 3D maps, difficulty levels, batsuits, and enhanced visuals from the original mobile versions.

The Fundamentals:
When starting out as Batman, these are the button layouts and the various actions they represent:

- Detective Mode; (hold) Analysis
- Grappling Gun
- Crypto Sequencer Interaction; (Hold) Run; Evade
- Cape Stun
- Punch
- Counter; Silent Takedown
- Aim Ready; (hold) Crouch
- Fire
- Line Launcher
- Gel Launcher
- Batclaw
- Batarang

Story Achievements:
This is not difficult but it can drag a bit. You MUST defeat a certain boss LAST for them to leave a certain crate that pertains to a Batsuit item that you're needing for a specific achievement (like when defeating the Penguin's endgame will give you the New 52 Belt). Just note the order of the bosses that you have defeated and you're good to go or else you'll have to replay the game through again. The game will note when you start a new game which boss you have defeated already with their unique icon in the select screen.

 

The game will take you to:

  • Gotham City at Nighttime
  • Industrial (Black Mask)
  • Cell Blocks (Penguin)
  • Administration (Joker)
  • The Lighthouse
  • Arkham Wing (underneath the Cell Blocks)

Here is a quick rundown on the missable Achievements in the game: "The Collector," "Breathless," "Grave Digger, "World's Snazziest Dresser," "Bad Case of the Mondays," "Party Pooper," "Circuit Breaker," "Flew the Coop" and any one achievement connected to finding clues ("World's Greatest Detective") and combat combos ("LEAGUE OF SHADOWS").

Please follow each individual achievement on how to obtain them on your first playthrough. Also, follow this thread as it shows all of the case clue locations.

Multiple Playthrough Last Boss Note:
To obtain the last Batsuit piece and well as the (different) last boss, you MUST defeat a different boss each time. For example, defeat The Joker, the Penguin then Black Mask. This order will give you the final One Million piece (belt) when you open the last crate left behind. Remember, the first 2 bosses makes no difference, just defeat a different one last each time.

Conclusion:
When going into this game, remember - this is not the console version of it. It's a side-scrolling game with very little wiggle room during the combat sections. With a bit of persistence, you will 100% this game in no time.

  • Find all detective cases and have all pickups and upgrades

    (3)  

    This achievement is missable.

    To obtain this Achievement, you must find every Armor ("Armored Edition"), RUSH ("2112"), Heavy Gauntlet ("Talk to the Hand") and Detective Cases ("World’s Greatest Detective") in the game. Please read those individual achievements on how and where to acquire them.

  • Defeat Joker

    This achievement is story-related and unmissable.

    When you first start out, DO NOT run after the Joker; he’ll just run away from you. Instead, Line Launch towards him to score a hit. Have it equipped already and you can just for a quick-action launch.

    After the kick to the chest, Joker will pull out a gun. He’ll fire at you three times - jump at the last second when his red reticle shrinks. When he starts to load (listen for the sound), Line Launch towards him again. This will happen twice.

    As a backup plan, the Joker pulls out an electric baton. Equip your Shock Batarang (), aim and hit the baton; the Joker will run away. When he stops to recharge the baton, Line Launch towards him. This will happen a couple of times.

    After the Joker gets knocked around some more, he’ll put on a gas mask and flood the room with Joker gas as this part is a timed section. The Joker will mix shooting and electric baton rush attacks all the while his thugs will drop grenades. Time your Line Launches perfectly as your health will start to deplete.

    Note: If you don't move for a few seconds, the Joker Thugs will throw down grenades.

    After defeating the Joker, your reward will be Crypto Key Gamma.

  • This achievement is story-related and unmissable.

    Strategy Note: Go to Administration first to obtain the Shock Batarang. They are a perfect defense for the flying drones.

    First, you cannot take out Penguin head on as he will unload on you with his shotgun as well as his henchmen with the machine guns. The trick here is hitting the alarms with your Batarang to cause misdirection. Once the machine-gun thugs go to investigate, sneak up behind one of them to use your Batclaw () to take him down (I found it easier to go to the very top level and hit one of the fire extinguishers, and a thug will come check it out. to the center vantage point, then use your Batclaw to incapacitate him). Same for the other one. When you’re done with them, Glide towards Cobblepot for a ground beatdown.

    On the second go-round, the Penguin will bring out three machine-gun thugs and a drone. Same as before with the thugs. Use the Shock Batarang on the drone (if you have it).

    On the third go-round, Penguin will bring out more machine-gun thugs and now with two drones. Repeat as mentioned above. Here’s a tip: if the thugs are far away from Cobblepot, you can just Glide to him and it’s over, ignoring the thugs completely.

  • Defeat Black Mask

    This achievement is story-related and unmissable.

    After the previous area with the electrified barriers, you’ll come to a chamber where Black Mask is waiting. The trick here is to stay in the darkness as Black Mask has two guns and can gun you down in seconds.

    First, go into Detective Mode () to scan the area (floor grate, alarm, over-head lights). Once that’s done, hit the alarm at the far-right side of the room with your Batarang; Black Mask will go and investigate. Now, hit the over-head light closes to you with a Batarang and, as quickly as you can, get into the floor grate. Head towards the far-right floor grate. When Black Mask re-positions himself, jump out of the floor grate and hit the alarm on the far-left side of the room. As soon as you do this, jump right back into the floor grate and head to the middle floor grate to takedown Black Mask.

    Note: While you're here, scan the clue right below Black Mask, The Bidding War case - Gold Coins.
