Batman: Arkham Asylum Riddler Guide



TOOL NEEDED: Explosive Gel 

The eastern office building in this area has a destructible roof. Climb on top, use your explosive gel to blow it away and drop down for the Riddler's map.


"Tweedledum and Tweedledee SAW it, can you SEE it?"
Head as far north on the map as you can, until you reach the main gates into Arkham Asylum. To your right will be a see-saw with beanie caps sitting at each end. Scan the whole thing to solve the riddle.


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer 

"Let's face it, there are two Dents on the wall."
Once you have the sequencer, go to the western ground floor guard house and blow the fuse. Enter and scan the "Vote Dent" posters on the wall and desk.


TOOL NEEDED: Detective Mode 

"Now I see it, now you don't!"
This is a question mark alignment puzzle. Stand underneath the arched entrance to the dilapidated building and look up. The symbol should be clear.



Two guard towers stand in this area. The western one holds an interview tape in its nest.


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer 

Once you have the sequencer, go to the western ground-floor guard house and blow the fuse. Enter to find the tape... it's the same room as the Harvey Dent riddle.


Find the crumbling building to the west of the main asylum gate. When going through the door, look up and right and you'll see an alcove. This is where the beetle symbol awaits.


You'll see this symbol on your first trip to the Batcave. Pretty hard to miss.



Grapple onto the roof of the building, in the section left of the Arkham West door. Once up there, cross the shingles on your left to find the trophy.



Find the crumbling building to the west of the main asylum gate. When going through its door, look to your left. The trophy is sitting on the floor in the corner.



On the eastern side of this area is a rocky plateau. To reach it, climb the eastern guard tower and glide down from its roof.



Look on the roof of the western guard tower... the tower closest to the Arkham West door.


TOOL NEEDED: Explosive Gel 

On your way to the Batcave, you'll enter a room with some skulls sitting in the center. The right wall is destructible with explosive gel, and has a trophy hiding behind it.


TOOL NEEDED: Explosive Gel 

On the paved road, right between the two guard towers, is a destructible floor panel. Use the gel to blow it away and drop into the little hole to nab the trophy.


TOOL NEEDED: Cryptographic Sequencer with Range Amplifier 

Stand on the road and face the main gate out of Arkham Asylum. On your left is a guard office with an electrified door. Use your upgraded sequencer to power it down and nab the trophy.


TOOL NEEDED: Line Launcher 

Head to the guard tower that's closest to the Arkham West door. Stand inside its office and look west towards the cliff. You should see an alcove with the trophy. Zip across the gap with the Line Launcher.


TOOL NEEDED: Ultra Batclaw 

Directly below the alcove holding Trophy #7 is a destructible wall hiding Trophy #8. You need the Ultra Batclaw to pull it down.



Above the entrance to the Batcave is a tunnel. Grapple up there and you'll find two Riddler trophies. This one's easy. The next one's a little trickier.


TOOL NEEDED: Ultra Batclaw 

So tantalizing! This Riddler trophy is only a few feet away from the previous one, but iron bars block your path. To get to it, leave the tunnel and head into the Batcave entrance. Grapple up twice, but before heading through the steel door, turn around and look for a destructible patch of wall. Use the Ultra Batclaw to tear it down and jump over for the prize.



These will be directly in front of the door to Arkham East, after surfacing from the sewers and while heading to Arkham Mansion.



When you're breaking back into Intensive Treatment to find Killer Croc's lair, you'll have to get past this spiked sniper station. Climb one of the guard towers and use your new Line Launcher to access the platform. After taking out the sniper, take out the three sets of teeth.



These are near the door to Arkham East. We didn't spot them until after finishing the game, so can't be sure when they first appear.



These are on the western guard tower. We didn't spot them until after finishing the game, so can't be sure when they first appear.

  • 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
