Batman: Arkham Origins Multiplayer Tips - The Gang Elites
Get ahead of the competition with our Batman: Arkham Origins multiplayer tips straight from the development team! This chapter covers playing as Gang Elites. If you missed our chapter on playing as the Heroes, you can read that here.
Stick together and cover each other. Teamwork is key.
Gang Elites can cover grates, corners, gargoyles etc. to prevent Heroes takedowns.
When playing as an Elite, keep your head on a swivel. Heroes often lurk above or below.
If your Gang is out of reinforcements, killing a Hero will bring back all your dead teammates.
Hit Evade to avoid melee attacks, takedowns and Super-Villain executions.
Your health will recharge if you don’t take any damage for a while. Retreat and recuperate.
Use your enhanced vision often but in short bursts so as not to exhaust it.
You start with one grenade: more can be found in specially marked Ammo Crates.
Keep an eye on the Intimidation Barmeter, and concentrate on taking out Batman and Robin if it gets too high.
Your health and dash will recharge faster when you’re in cover.
If you run out of ammo switch to your Backup Sidearm, then get to an Ammo Crate.
Keep an eye out for specially marked doors, the first Elite to reach them gets to play as Joker or Bane.
Protect yourself from the Heroes’ Explosive Gel by looking directly at it when it detonates.
A wide variety of different control schemes are available in the Options menu.
Get close to a damaged enemy Gang member and use melee for a lethal Melee move.
Your Elite abilities can turn the tide, don’t forget to use them.
Only hunt Heroes if they’re getting close to an Intimidation victory. If not, hunt the other Gang.
Watch the back of teammates using the UAV or RC Airship: Heroes will try to take them out.
Your Backup Sidearm is quite effective at long range, but is best saved for emergencies.
