Gotham Knights: Complete Robin Guide

Check out the complete guide on Robin below in Gotham Knights.

After all the speculation, we are finally getting a new game from Warner Bros, which involves the city of Gotham. However, this time, we will not have the most beloved character in DC and the hero of Gotham City, Batman. However, even without him, the city of Gotham still has heroes to protect itself, which involves the Disciples of Batman himself. Players can join Batgirl, Red Hood, Robin, and Nightwing on their adventures of beating bad guys and saving the city of Gotham.

In your journey to setting Gotham free of crime, you must go through different boss fights and enemies. Players must be at their A-game to defeat these enemies, and mastering each character can be challenging. If you are wondering how you should play Robin in the game, we have made a complete guide on Robin in Gotham Knights below.

A Complete Robin Guide of Gotham Knights

There are a total of four playable characters you will be able to control and use in Gotham Knights. These characters include Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood. Each of these characters is unique, and they all have different kinds of abilities and playstyles. Moreover, in this article below, we have added everything you need to know about using Robin in Gotham Knights.

Best Playstyle while using Robin

Following the footsteps of Bruce Wayne if you miss playing stealth as Batman. Robin offers exactly that in Gotham Knights. If you want to play as Robin to use his abilities to the fullest, you must be stealthy. As you continue playing with him, you will see his skill sets will add skills that will help him become the knight who attacks from the shadows. 

Using Robin, you can play stealth better than any other character in the game. He has a few abilities similar to Batman’s in other games like Arkham Knight and Arkham Origins. He can string up enemies using grapple points, and he can also use smoke bombs to return to grapple points. Robin can even use exploding decoys to distract enemies inside combat. He is sneaky and elegant, making him a must-use character if you want to play stealth in the game.

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.
