Batman: Arkham Asylum Boss Guide


Victor Zsasz is a deranged serial killer who keeps a tally of his victims by carving notches into his skin. Not the nicest of blokes, then.

Zsasz is an easy one. Don’t let him spot you though – he’ll execute Dr. Young if you show yourself. And you don't want that to happen.

Simply stroll to the entrance to Warden Sharp’s main room and lock to corner cover.

Now wait for your chance. Zsasz will eventually peek out from Young’s back, rendering himself vulnerable to your attacks.

Ready a Batarang with manual aim and throw when he looks. That’s all you need to do.

Cue a Trophy/Achievement for your troubles. If only all the bosses were as simple as Zsasz here.

Harley Quinn

Ex-shrink Harley proved so popular after her introduction in Batman: The Animated Series that she became canon in the comics too.

You don’t actually get to fight Harley – just her closest henchmen. Pay close attention to the arena floor…

Harley will send an electric current through the arena. It moves in a counter-clockwise pattern – just pay attention.

Fight the goons as normal, but when the middle floor starts to zap run to the platform on the left and climb up.

Counter any incoming moves and return to the central platform when the coast is clear. Keep repeating the routine.

Beware later waves of henchmen; they’ll start carrying knives and stun rods which make it tricky.

Killer Croc

Killer Croc was once a human called Waylon Jones, who was born with a terrible medical condition that turned him reptilian.

Do not disturb Croc or else you die. But so long as you crouch you can safely move as fast as you like.

At the 59 meter mark Croc will jump out and charge. Be cool, manually aim a Batarang and knock him out.

On the way to the sacs you’ll need to keep knocking him down. When bubbles appear get ready to run – some platforms will sink.

Bridge gaps with the Line Launcher to collect the last sacs. Get ready for some Crash Bandicoot style action…

Luckily Batman was prepared for Croc’s final charge. Equip the Explosive Gel and detonate when Croc steps on the giant bat.

    how do you get past the part where you have to free 2 guards when they are hanging over the electrified water in 2 minutes. I free the one but i don't know what to do from there. And on th PC version how do you use the sequencer, is it A,D, left click, right click in succesion or do you hold them down?

    uug, i wish you FOUGHT killer croc,not just ran around an hit him with baterangs but it'd probably be hard to figure out how to work him in a fight without him being just like bane or a titain

    Gamesradar I found a super secret easter egg its called the scarecrow scenario I swear to god that this is not fake, okay once you got the line launcher got to Arkham North use the launcher in a guard tower to go back to the intensive treatment this works a 100% percent I think I'm the only one who knows this okay continue down until u see joker goon putting mine on gargoyles okay take all the baddies out, now destroy the bomb at that little office in the middle okay 2 doors will be available goto the right one and BAAM you'lle just have to see it by yourself this is scarescrow's 3rd boss fight where batman is trapped in alternate world the mission was awesome please gamesradar post this a a feature or something and this is not a hoax and if everybody has found this already where sorry for the rush Gamesradar try it now!!!!!

    How do you beat Sandman? He isn't even listed here as a boss. I must be missing something here cause I can't figure out how to get past him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • Pr0fesserCha0s - August 28, 2009 5:58 a.m.
