Best Abilities For Robin
Robin has a range of different kinds of abilities in all three of his skill trees. However, among these trees, only two types of abilities are worth unlocking first. These two abilities are Exploding Decoy and Turnabout Takedown. In addition, Robin has abilities that can cause elemental damage. Fans can use this to their advantage by setting up combos after each ability to stir up more chaos in a fight.
Exploding Decoy can do a lot of damage along with a way to move away from your enemy. Moreover, this Decoy can do elemental damage as it explodes and leaves a residue, which causes additional damage to your enemy if they walk over it. Finally, you can combine this with elements such as freeze, stun, or poison and follow up with more combos to deal massive damage.
Turnabout Takedown is an ability you might remember if you have played the Arkham series. Robin is fast and agile, so taking down big enemies using takedowns could be perfect. Unfortunately, most of these large enemies can be tough to deal with in the game as they are generally much more potent than others. So taking them out using Turnabout Takedown is the perfect usage of this ability. However, ensure they don’t spot you, or you will have to fight them one-on-one.
