Gotham Knights Batarang Retrieval: Downtown is a Challenge that requires you to find and collect 12 Batarangs hidden in the Downtown Gotham District of the video game developed by WB Games Montréal for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms.
The said Challenge becomes available after you complete Gotham Knights Case 01: Batman’s Last Case, which means that the Batarangs Collectibles can be found early in the game.
Gotham Knights Batarangs do not require special equipment, so you may want to complete the associated Challenge and find the 12 Downtown Gotham Collectibles as soon as possible, especially because by finding them, you get the chance to earn XP, thus boosting your character’s levels.
Since Downtown Gotham is quite large and because it’s divided into two smaller regions, it means that for this Challenge, you have to find all Batarangs in both Financial District and West End.
Therefore, the following Gotham Knights Downtown Batarangs locations guide was divided into two parts, so you can easily track the required collectibles.
Each part comes with a custom map to guide you to the locations of the small collectibles you need to retrieve.
So let’s see how to complete the Gotham Knights Batarang Retrieval Downtown Challenge and where to find all 12 Collectibles in this district.
Gotham Knights Financial District Batarangs Locations Map
The map below shows the locations of the six hidden Batarnags in the Financial District area of Gotham Knights.
To make sure you don’t miss any of them, try to follow the same order as the one on the map above and if you need additional help finding them, simply check the following tips and screenshots showing their locations.
Batarang 1: On A Roof On Top Of Elliot Center
The first Gotham Knights Downtown Batarang is found on the lower roof of Elliot Center, west of the Belfry.
To get it, first, make sure you reach the top of the Elliot Center by grappling from one roof to another.
Next, head towards the northern edge of the roof, then look down, and you’ll spot another lower roof (balcony).
Drop down and look around to spot the glowing Batarang pinned on a concrete wall. Get close to it to collect it.
Batarang 2: On The Lower Roof Of The GSC Building
From the previous location, head east, and you’ll see the GSC Building. Look for the yellow GSC billboard.
The hidden Batarang, as you can see in my screenshot below, is on the lower roof and can be easily spotted while standing on top of the water tower south of the GSC building.
Batarang 3: On Top Of The Belfry Tower
The next Gotham Knights Financial District Batarang is fairly easy to spot but requires a bit of grappling.
As you can see on the map above, it’s found on top of the Belfry Tower. So start grappling from one roof to another until you get to the radio tower on the roof.
Batarang 4: On A Roof Between Two Buildings
After visiting the Belfry, head north towards the 4th location on my map above, and you’ll see the GCNB building.
North of it, you’ll find the Gotham City Towers Apartment landmark, and you’ll notice two tall buildings.
Between them is a lower roof where the 4th hidden Batarang awaits.
Batarang 5: Next To A Chimney
West of the previous collectibles, you’ll find the Quartz Labs. From the top of the building, you should be able to spot two tall chimneys.
Make sure you check the roof where the chimneys are found, and you’ll find the next Batarang near the chimney closer to the street.
Batarang 6: On A Clock Tower
Last but not least, for the sixth Gotham Knights Financial District Batarang Collectible, you’ll need to head northwest toward the location marked on the map above.
Look for a clock tower close to the water, and on top of it, you should be able to spot the collectible.
West End Batarangs Locations Map
As said, to complete the Batarang Retrieval: Downtown Gotham Knights Challenge, you also need to find the six hidden Batarangs in the West End area.
Their locations are marked on the following map.
Assuming you need additional help collecting them, here is where to find every collectible.
Batarang 1: On The Roof Of Classy Glasses Store
The first West End Batarang is found on the southern side of the region. Head to the location marked on the map above, and you’ll eventually spot a large church.
While facing the entrance, on the left side is a store named Classy Glasses. Check the roof, and you’ll find the hidden Batarang behind a chimney.
Batarang 2: On The Roof Of Gotham City Gazette
From the previous location, head northwest towards the Gotham City Gazette building.
Use the grappling points to reach the upper roof, then look around for a ventilation system behind the large red billboard.
The second West End Batarang is on the ground.
Batarang 3: Under A Billboard
West of the previous collectible, on the western side of the area, you’ll find the Chelsea Tunnel landmark.
Head to the location marked on the map, and you’ll find two cranes.
While remaining on the roof, look for a billboard under the southern crane, and on the ground, you’ll find the third Batarang.
Batarang 4: Pinned To A Wall
Less than 200 meters north of the previous Batarang, you can find another one pinned to the wall of a red building.
Use the map above for its exact location, and when you reach the said building, look for the collectible on the wall facing the water.
To get this Batarang, drop from the roof above it while hanging.
Batarang 5: On The General Hospital Roof
The next collectible is quite accessible because it’s found on the roof of the General Hospital building.
Head to the location marked on the map above, then use the grappling points on the exterior walls to get to the roof. The Batarang is sitting on some grates.
Batarang 6: On The Roof Of The GCPD Major Crimes Unit
The sixth and final Gotham Knights West End Batarang Collectible is also quite accessible because it’s found on the roof of the GCPD Major Crimes Unit building.
You’ll find the said building in the northwestern corner of the area and the Batarang on the roof behind a fence.
Upon retrieving the last collectible, the Gotham Knights Batarang Retrieval: Downtown Challenge is complete; however, there are more collectibles waiting for you in Gotham, so make sure you check our Wiki hub here if you need help finding them.
