ARKHAM ISLAND, EAST


ARKHAM EAST - SECRETS MAP


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer 

The Riddler's secrets map is in the ground floor guard room closest to the Arkham Mansion stairs and statue of Warden Sharp. You can't get in, however, until you've received the security-hacking sequencer.

ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLE SOLUTION #1

"The legacy of this island has been well and truly buried."
Head to the cemetery and look for the open, sunken grave. It's well-lit and the headstone is shaped like an "A" for the asylum's founder, Amadeus Arkham. Zoom in and scan the face of the tomb to solve the riddle.

ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLE SOLUTION #2

"Gotham's greatest family towers over the city."
This one's easy enough. Just find Wayne Tower on the horizon, zoom in and scan the giant "W".

ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLE SOLUTION #3


TOOL NEEDED: Detective Mode 

"My challenges appear to those with the correct position in life."
This is a question mark alignment puzzle. Climb to the very top of Arkham Mansion's tallest tower and face south. The dot is on the floor at your feet, but the top half of the symbol is spread out upon the roofs below. Line them up and scan.

ARKHAM EAST - PATIENT INTERVIEW #1

 

The tape is in the southern guard tower. On a desk. Impossible to miss once you're up there.


ARKHAM EAST - PATIENT INTERVIEW #2


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer 

The two guard towers here are linked by catwalks. Where those two walks meet, there's an office. Once you can hack your way inside that office with the sequencer, you'll find both an interview and a trophy.


ARKHAM EAST - CHRONICLE #1

 

Left of the Arkham Mansion stairs is a locked-off courtyard. Grapple over the wall, drop down and check the righthand wall - behind the railway - for a tablet.


ARKHAM EAST - CHRONICLE #2


TOOL NEEDED: Explosive Gel 

Face the Botanical Garden staircase from the graveyard. You should notice a patch of destructible wall on the side of those stairs. Use your gel or your Ultra Batclaw to get inside and find the tablet.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #1

This one's sitting out in plain sight, on a little jetty overlooking Gotham harbor. It's near the southern view of the water, though, not the northern... very close to the Arkham Mansion stairs.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #2

You’ll find this trophy at the very back of the graveyard, near the cliff shore.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #3

Left of the Arkham Mansion stairs is a locked-off courtyard. Grapple over the wall, run to the back and grapple onto the upper balcony. Behind the column here, facing the view of Gotham City, is a Riddler trophy.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #4

This one is above Trophy #2, on a flat section of Arkham Mansion's roof. If you look at your map, you can also see that it's the narrowest part of the roof, separating the northern and southern halves of the mansion.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #5

In the middle of the cemetery is a small wooden shack. The door is open and the trophy is right on the desk.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #6

Grapple and climb your way to the top of the mansion's tallest tower. On the side with the clock face is the trophy.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #7

If you're on the tallest mansion tower, and look down towards the circular tower, you should spot a rectangular recess between the slopes of the roof. A trophy is there - just glide down and grab it.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #8

Located on top of the northwestern guard tower, the one closest to the Arkham North door.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #9


TOOL NEEDED: Explosive Gel

Left of the Arkham Mansion stairs is a flat courtyard. Smack dab in the center of this courtyard is a destructible piece of flooring. Use your explosive gel and take the trophy underneath.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #10


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer

This one's in the ground floor guard room closest to the Arkham Mansion stairs and statue of Warden Sharp... the same location as the map. You just need to wait until you have the sequencer to gain access.


ARKHAM EAST - RIDDLER TROPHY #11


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer

The two guard towers here are linked by catwalks. Where those two walks meet, there's an office. Once you can hack your way inside that office with the sequencer, you'll find both the trophy and an interview tape.


ARKHAM EAST - JOKER’S TEETH #1-2

These are halfway up the stairs to Arkham Mansion's main entrance. They don't appear until the story directs you to the mansion, however, and you'll definitely want to get rid of the two snipers on the overhang above first.


ARKHAM EAST - JOKER’S TEETH #3-4

You'll find these two sets as you're making your way to the Botanical Gardens, looking for Harley's fingerprints. They're at the foot of the long stairs. Watch out for lunging lunatics!


ARKHAM EAST - JOKER’S TEETH #5-6

These two sets are in the more southern guard tower of Arkham East.


ARKHAM EAST - JOKER’S TEETH #7-8

These two are on the stairs to the Botanical Gardens. They didn't appear for us until Poison Ivy had turned Arkham's sky red and we were on our way to stop her with the antidote.


ARKHAM EAST - JOKER’S TEETH #9-10

These two are near the door to Arkham West, close to a ground-level guard room. We didn't spot them until after finishing the game, so can't be sure when they first appear.

    There seems to be a problem with the embedded text links, whenever you click on one, pops another page with the same content, instead of the desired one.

  • taylor-alexander-donley - December 15, 2012 6:39 a.m.

    ok so i beat the game, all i need is to find the last spirt of arkham tablet, and i have no clue where it could be...or who it is.. can anyone help????
  • trex66 - October 31, 2012 10:30 a.m.

    The map I have shows a 'cave' just above the Caves on the map. looks like it has an entrance next to the bat cave entrance by Intense Treatment. Goes to what looks like a cave opening out to face the Mansion? I googled BAA maps and most don't show this area? I finished the game but don't remember ever being in this area. I can see the opening from the roof of the Mansion but can't fly or shoot line that far. Any ideas what this is and how to get to it?
  • xXLilxMafiaXx - October 12, 2012 4:53 a.m.

    The 9-10 teeth for the connector tunnel from Arkham West to Arkham East are a available just before you fight Ivy. I've completed the game once but couldn't find the missing teeth I needed, as result I'm redoing game... Hope this helps xXLilxMafiaXx Xbox360
  • Tcollins2525 - September 30, 2012 11:16 a.m.

    I am stuck on the mission where you have to find mr. Freeze by going to the coldest spot. The only thing I think is the right way to go is theres a garage door and some kind of electric box above it, and I shoot the remote electrical charge at it and the garage door opens just a little bit but not enough to crawl through. So I have no clue what to do or if that's even the right way, been stuck for two days!! Please any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • ZombiPineapple - October 1, 2012 8:17 a.m.

    You do the slide kick to slide under the door.
  • jessicad - August 18, 2013 3:40 p.m.

    You're on the right track. If the door doesn't give you enough space to crawl, what you need to do is slide under it the same way you did when you were inside the chimney of the steel mill near the beginning of the game.
  • jam320 - September 17, 2012 11:24 a.m.

    Riddle me this - Beat joker (check), got all riddler trophies (check), got all interviews (check), got all joker teeth (check), MISSING 2 Arkham chronicles. It should be easy to find them but my map is clear of all question marks. How can this be?
  • jam320 - September 17, 2012 11:33 a.m.

    Nevermind I answered my own question.
  • taylor-alexander-donley - December 15, 2012 6:51 a.m.

  • jason-chene - July 27, 2012 3:10 p.m.

    I cant figure out how to get back to the second level of the medical facility. With the elevator locked I don't remember how to get to the rest of the medical facility.
  • sebastien-rittau - July 28, 2012 8:17 p.m.

    there is a vent beside the elevator that you use
  • rams83928 - July 27, 2012 2:13 p.m.

    ok found the chronicle. i just need the two teeth in arkham west and i'm done????????
  • rams83928 - July 27, 2012 2 p.m.

    I have 239 riddles done. Just need two teeth in arkham west. they are not showing up. i've searched everywhere. Also, what about the last chronicle? there is one slot left on the character bios. where is that?
  • ImmaChicken - August 7, 2012 2:40 a.m.

    The last chronicle doesn't look like the others, it's in the penitentiary. It's where you find the warden in handcuffs and first get the cryptographic sequencer. It's near Clayface's cell.
  • ImmaChicken - August 9, 2012 2:26 a.m.

    Sorry, it's on the floor of the room with the warden in it, there's a circle on the floor with "batman" scribbled all around it.
