Gotham Knights: How to Change Characters And Unlock Your Gliding Ability

“Do Gotham Knights characters share skill points?” After all, if they don’t, then that means you’re going to have to level up every character every time you want to swap heroes. So far as that goes, I actually have some good news for you.

Skill points and experience are shared between Gotham Knights‘ characters equally. So, if you’ve been playing as Red Hood until you reach Level 8 and suddenly want to play as Robin, Robin will also be Level 8 and have all the skill points associated with that level available to him. That makes it significantly easier to find your favorite character or simply swap characters whenever you start feeling a little bored with your current hero.

Unfortunately, there are some aspects of the game that are unique to the character you’re currently playing as. Most notably, you will need to complete each character’s Knighthood challenges separately. That means that if you want to unlock every character’s unique traversal ability and other key skills (like Momentum Abilities), you will need to put the time into each one of them. Since that can take quite a while, you’re really still best off trying to focus as much of your attention as possible on the character you think you’re going to want to spend the most time as.

Can you change character in Gotham Knights?

Yes, you can change your character in Gotham Knights. Despite feeling like you can pick one character and stick with them, you can change your playable character in Gotham Knights at pretty much any time.

With all of the different stats, upgrades, and abilities, you’ll want to change which of the Bat Family you’re playing as and not just stick with the same one. You’ll want to work your way through the skill trees of Red Hood, Nightwing, Batgirl and Robin to see what abilities they unlock.

It’s understandable, though, that you may end up with one character as your main if you’ve played through various story missions with them already. Thanks to their different skill trees, it would be easy to stick with the character whose abilities you prefer.

Thankfully, if you do wish to change your character, each one levels up in tandem. This means that if you’re playing as Red Hood, any experience and skill points you earn will be applied to the rest of the Bat Family too. A neat feature that means when you do switch characters they won’t feel under-leveled and will have plenty of skill points available to spend.

Finally, crafting resources are also shared between the characters, so you can dismantle one character’s piece of extra equipment and use those suddenly spare parts for your preferred character’s next upgrade. That does help make the process of leveling multiple characters slightly smoother than it would otherwise be.

Gotham Knights: How To Unlock Your Gliding Ability

One Step Ahead is slightly trickier. Basically, you’ll need to head out on patrol and find the locations of 10 Premeditated Crimes. To locate Premeditated Crimes, scan any regular enemies before you fight them. Look for the “question mark” that appears over some of their heads. That question mark lets you know that you’re able to interrogate that enemy for additional information. After interrogating them, you’ll be able to stop a new Premeditated Crime during your next patrol. Unfortunately, that means it will take you several nights to complete this challenge. You may unlock several Premeditated Crimes in a single patrol if you’re really lucky, but that depends on how many of the right thugs you’re able to find in one night.

Against all Odds is actually the most annoying of the three challenges. While it’s easy to take down the game’s Enforcer enemies, you never know when or where they’re going to appear. You can usually find them during Premeditated Crimes and certain campaign missions mixed in with the other enemies. Basically, keep working your way through the rest of the game, and you’ll eventually find the Enforcers needed to complete this challenge.

When you’ve completed your current character’s final Knighthood challenge, go back to the Belfry and interact with Batman’s mask. That will allow you to unlock your character’s glide ability.

Actually, a word of warning about that “glide” ability. Batgirl is the only character in the game who can glide in Gotham Knights as Batman glided in the Arkham games. Each character in the game actually has their own method of quick traversal:

Batgirl – Cape Glide
Nightwing – Mechanical Glider
Robin – Teleportation
Red Hood – Mystical Leap

Batgirl’s method of transportation will feel instantly familiar to every Arkham fan, but the others will take some serious getting used to. Red Hood’s transportation method, in particular, is a little awkward to get the hang of at first.

Gotham Knights: How to Unlock Every Suit In the Game

To unlock suit Transmogs in Gotham Knights, you first need to unlock a particular suit style. You’ll start with some styles available to you, but the more styles you unlock and craft throughout the game, the more Transmog options you’ll eventually acquire.

Once you have your preferred Transmog suit style unlocked, open the Batcomputer, go to the Gear section, and select “Styles.” There, you will be able to apply any suit style you have unlocked to your current outfit. That will cause your current outfit to look like the suit style you’ve selected. Crucially, changing a suit’s style via the Transmog option will not impact its stats in any way. It will only change how the suit looks. This system helps ensure that your best piece of gear doesn’t have to be bound to a style you’re not a fan of.

Sadly, it does not currently seem possible to customize individual parts of a Transmog outfit at this time. So, if you discover or craft a powerful Shinobi suit for your character, you’re able to customize the individual parts of that Shinobi suit via the crafting system. However, if you Transmog that Shinobi outfit to look like a Neon Noir outfit, it will always look like the default Neon Noir outfit. Truth be told, that’s a pretty bad customization system that pales in comparison to similar systems featured in games like World of Warcraft and Destiny.

How to Unlock Suit Colorways in Gotham Knights

Suit Colorways are what allow you to change the color and patterns of your current suit’s cowl, symbol, gloves, and boots. The specifics of which aspects of a suit you’re able to change kind of depend on its style, but the basics remain the same. If you want to customize how your current outfit looks, you’ll need to unlock the Colorway that allows you to apply a different color or look to specific parts of your suit.

Colorways in Gotham Knights are unlocked by completing various objectives in the game. Much like unlocking suits, there doesn’t seem to be a specific way to acquire specific Colorways at this time. As you complete various objectives, missions, and combat sequences, you’ll randomly unlock different Colorway options that can be applied to various parts of your outfit.

To apply an unlocked Colorway to your current suit, head back to the Gear section of the Batcomputer menu and select the “Styles” option. Here, you’ll be able to apply whichever Colorways you’ve unlocked so far to your current suit style.
