There are 154 total collectibles to find in Gotham Knights if you don’t count Batman’s secret hideouts, which aren’t that secret because they appear on your map as you play through the campaign. We won’t cover those places here. Instead, we’ll focus on the truly hidden collectibles, including Batarangs, Monuments, Street Art Murals, and Strigidae Pages, all of which are much harder to find.
You can access the entire map of Gotham City and its 11 boroughs very close to the start of the game and for the rest of your time with Gotham Knights. With the exception of the Strigidae Pages (which are available after Mission 2), none of the collectibles are locked behind missions or level caps, although you may want to unlock fast travel before heading out to the northern districts.
Here’s a quick primer on what to look for:
Batman has left 60 Batarangs all over town, many of them in some pretty hard-to-find places, and you just need to step on them to pick them up. They give off a column of blue light that shoots into the sky, but you have to be relatively close to them to see it; it doesn’t help, there are millions of similar blue lights across Gotham.
Batarang collectibles will glow orange when scanned by the AR device, but you have to be incredibly close to them to see the outline (essentially above them), and even then it can be tricky to detect the edge. You will get the Batarang Collector trophy and achievement for finding them all.
There are 40 landmarks to find in Gotham. However, they are not exactly what you might think: GCPD is not a Landmark, for example. Neither did Arkham Asylum. Your database collects all the points of interest you encounter; some fall into the Landmark category, some do not.
To collect landmarks, you need to interact with their historical marker signs (small square signs) often found on nearby walls or columns. You must interact with these signs to indicate that you have visited the locations. Signs glow two different colors when scanned with the AR device: orange before they’ve been collected and white after they’ve been collected.
These locations are some of the hardest collectibles to find in the game, as seeing the glow of a sign can be incredibly difficult. You will get the History Major trophy and achievement for visiting them all.
Street art murals:
Street Art murals are, conversely, some of the easiest collectibles to find in Gotham Knights. Most boroughs only have one mural to find (though some have multiple), and you need to scan them with the AR device to collect them.
They are surrounded by a bright orange border when you use your AR pulse. This border can be easily seen through other buildings and contrasts sharply with the city around them. You’ll get the Claim the High Ground Mural trophy and achievement for scanning them all.
This part of the guide is still in progress, and these collectibles are not yet included below, although they will be very soon. They become available after Mission 2.
