Batman: Arkham Knight Riddler guide - how to solve every Riddler challenge

Stagg Enterprises Airships Riddles

"Need something moved quickly, in a freezer? This company's owned by a cockney geezer!"

This riddle can be solved right when you reach Airship Beta. Step past the destructible wall and scan the North Refrigeration flyer on the whiteboard.

"A bragging reporter's worse than a narc, but perhaps the assassin has found his mark?"

Can be solved in Biological Engineering, the room where you rescue Stagg the second time. From the entrance, check the upper left platform. On the desk here is a magazine with a cover story by Jack Ryder - scan it.

"No Dark Knight, Stagg's pet is no figment, it's just lacking the usual pigment."

This can be solved while exploring Airship Alpha in story mode, or whenever you return to the ship. Check in the research laboratory for a group of destructible walls. Near them is a cage holding an albino monkey, which you can scan.

Stagg Enterprises Airships Trophies

Airship Alpha

When you first enter the airship, you'll crawl through a vent, placing you right atop a cage holding a trophy. Use the Remote Hacking Device to open the way.

Airship Alpha

When you reach the lower room beneath the foyer, look up to see a trophy in a rounded cage behind some wires. Use the Remote Hacking device to free it, then use the airship controls to roll it down the tubes to you.

Airship Alpha

Look up on the other side of the same room to spot a small generator. Give it some juice with the Remote Electrical Charge to open a small alcove you can grapple into. Hello, trophy!

Airship Alpha

In the same room, you'll also learn how to simultaneously use the ship controls and the Remote Hacking Device. Push the trio of boxes to the right and rip open the grate to grab the trophy beyond.

Airship Alpha

There's a second trophy immediately after the previous one. In the next hallway, step on the pressure pad to light up the Riddler switch down the passageway. Now throw a Remote Controlled Batarang through the slot in the grates to hit the switch and free the nearby trophy.

Airship Alpha

Found right after Stagg is taken to Airship Beta. As you crawl through the grates moving boxes with the ship's controls, look for this blue hatch. Hop inside to find another trophy.

Airship Alpha

In the same room is a door you can open with the Voice Synthesizer. Enter this new area, and watch for a sentry gun around the nearby corner - use the Remote Hacking Device to shut it down and give you chance to dismantle. Once it's clear, activate the nearby airship controls and check by the door you came through. There's a cracked ceiling you can bust through with the Explosive Gel. Do this to drop a crate into the room with you, then use the airship controls to send it crashing through the nearby glass, letting you grab the hanging trophy with the Batclaw.

Airship Alpha

Directly behind the sentry gun you just disabled.

Airship Alpha

In the same hallway is a hatch leading to a Riddler puzzle. Stepping on the pads closes the hatch above, so use the Line Launcher to wire walk out and grapple up.

Airship Alpha

When you head toward the research laboratory in the back of the ship, look for this trio of Riddler switches. You'll need the Triple Batarang skill for this, but once you have it, you can hit all three switches simultaneously and free the trophy from its little cage.

Airship Alpha

Check the rear of the research laboratory for some monkey cages and a panel you can access with the Remote Hacking Tool. Once you're in, a Riddler puzzle will be revealed. The monkey will follow your movements, and the Riddler switch will switch between gates inside the cage. Lead the little guy to the far right and hit the switch to trap him atop the pressure pad. This will free up the trophy hanging on the ceiling for you to Batclaw it down.

Airship Alpha

Near the first monkey cage puzzle is another terminal you can hack to reveal a second puzzle. This time there are two pressure pads: you'll need to guide the monkey and raise the gates to get him onto both in the brief time limit. Do this to free another trophy from a nearby cage.

Airship Beta

Available once you return to the ship later in the story. Open the airlock facing Airship Alpha and step on the pressure pad. This will cause several Riddler switches to light up across the way. Hit each one with a Remote Controlled Batarang while glowing to release the trophy.

Airship Beta

Once you pass under the sign labeled "Subject Testing," look for a damage wall. Blow through it with Explosive Gel to find a Riddler puzzle on the other side. Use the airship controls and Remote Hacking Tool to arrange the boxes as you see them in the screenshot above. Now you can get through the hatch to the top of the structure. Once here, free all the boxes and lean the whole group to the far right. Lock them in place, and lean left to move the free box. Now you have a clear path down the other hatch to the trophy.

Airship Beta

Upon returning to the ship later in the story, the hallway near Subject Testing will hold a sentry gun. Use the Voice Synthesizer to open the nearby door and free the crate inside, then use the airship controls to send it flying off the side of the ship. Glide down to find where the crate landed and collect your trophy.

Airship Beta

Move past the holding cells to spot one with a trophy inside. Use the computer at the end of the hallway to open the way.

Airship Beta

Found in Biological Engineering, the room where you rescue Stagg a second time. From the entrance, drop down and to the right. Hack the nearby console to reveal another monkey cage puzzle. Same deal: lure the monkeys on the switches as they follow you, but be ready to time a Batarang throw to trap the top monkey in the center.

Airship Beta

Take a left from your entrance in Biological Engineering. Near some stairs is a pipe leaking steam. Seal it with the Freeze Blast to slip through the small opening and grab the trophy on the other side.

Airship Beta

Found in the back left corner of the same room; use the Voice Synthesizer to open the door blocking the trophy.

Airship Beta

Found in the same room, beneath a large containment tank - use the vents or hatches to get there. Light up all three generators down here with the Remote Electrical Device to free the trophy.

Airship Beta

In the very back of the room, under Stagg's cage, is another console you can hack to reveal another monkey cage puzzle. You'll have to trick the bottom monkey like before, then yank down the trophy with the Batclaw.

Stagg Enterprises Airships Insect Crates

Airship Alpha

When you first enter the ship, you'll crawl through a vent. This is in a corner on the other side.

Airship Alpha

Found in the lower chamber under the foyer, where you learn to use the Remote Hacking Tool and airship controls simultaneously.

Airship Alpha

Found in a corner of the cargo hold where you first rescue Stagg. Use the Batclaw to pull it down.

Airship Alpha

In the opposite corner of the same room.

Airship Alpha

In the same room is a door you can open with the Voice Synthesizer. Enter this new area, and watch for a sentry gun around the nearby corner - use the Remote Hacking Device to shut it down and give you chance to dismantle. Once it's clear, you can bust up the crate back here.

Airship Alpha

When you reach the other end of the broken walkway above the cargo hold, you can spot this by a hatch. Use the Batclaw to grab it.

Airship Alpha

Look for this atop a monkey cage on the lower level of the research laboratory. Use your Batclaw to pull it down.

Airship Alpha

Check the back corner of the same floor for another one you can yank with the Batclaw.

Airship Alpha

On a ledge in the very rear of the research laboratory, under a vantage point.

Airship Beta

As soon as you enter the second ship, check the corner of the room for this crate. Use the Batclaw to pull it down.

Airship Beta

Once you pass under the sign labeled "Subject Testing," look for a damage wall. Blow through it with Explosive Gel to find a Riddler puzzle on the other side. In the corner of the same room is a crate.

Airship Beta

Found in Biological Engineering, the room where you rescue Stagg a second time. From the entrance, look up and to the left to spot this atop a vent. Find a vantage point where you can hook it with the Batclaw.

Airship Beta

Under the stairs in the middle of the room, toward the entrance. Use the Batclaw to get at it.

Airship Beta

The last crate in this room is in the back right of the room, on the lower level. Hook it with the Batclaw to bring it down.

Airship Beta

The last crate overall is in the corner of the helm, where you confront Scarecrow. Yank it down with the Batclaw.
