Enter Arkham City, a place where Gotham’s most infamous criminals rule. In Batman: Arkham Underworld, you will rule the streets… not as Batman, but as a crime lord! Arkham Underworld is a Clash of Clans type game based on DC’s ever popular Batman universe, but with a twist: you’re not Batman, you’re a crime lord! Develop your own hideout as you take over Arkham City along the help of the famous Batman villains like the Riddler, Harley Quinn, and more! If you have played Clash of Clans before, you probably know how to get through this game pretty well, but for those who haven’t let’s get started with our Batman: Arkham Underworld cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Complete the headlines!
Quests, or this game likes to call them, “headlines,” can be accessed by tapping the newspaper at the top left corner of the main menu. These function like your typical mobile game quests. Complete the listed objective and reap the benefits! Each headline has multiple levels to it, and they can be complete three times before they are maxed out. You will always receive diamonds as a reward for completing headlines, so it is in your best interest to complete as many of these as you can!
2. Keep moving your super-villain!
Unlike your thugs, your super-villain remains under your direct control at all times. This means that once they finish an order you assign them to, you will need to reassign them a new position or target to attack. Be sure that you do not let your super-villain fall behind your thugs. Without a super-villain to take the hits, your thugs will go down very quickly and you will be left with no back up!
3. Use the right super-villain for the job!
You will learn quickly on that you should always have your super-villain lead the charge for your thugs. While this is a generally good strategy, it is important to keep in mind that certain super-villains are more “tanky” compared to the others, whether that means they have higher health or they have abilities that help them mitigate damage. For example, the second active ability the Riddler can learn is “Holograms”. This ability creates decoys of the Riddler and while they do not deal any damage, they can absorb hits for him. Be sure to consider all of your super-villains and their abilities before you commit to one for a mission!
4. Distribute your skill points wisely!
Super-villains must spend skill points to learn new… skills! They gain experience when they go on missions and once they have collected enough, they will level up and earn a skill point to spend. Choose your skills wisely! If at any point you wish to reallocate the super-villains skill points, you must spend 10 diamonds to do so.
5. Use your active ability often!
Each super-villain has active abilities they can learn and use throughout the course of the game, and they are very powerful. Riddler’s starting ability is “Question Arc”, a high powered blast of electricity directed as a beam. Harley Quinn’s “Jack of Hearts” is a sentry gun disguised as a present. As a bonus, it self-destructs once it uses up all of its ammo, damaging any nearby enemies! Both of these active abilities have a relatively short 15 second cooldown between uses, so do not be afraid to use them. A mission going haywire can be fixed with liberal use of abilities!
6. Buy a lot of luxury items!
Luxury items will generate Respect points for you, allowing you buy better thugs and the like. Not only that though, but you want to make sure that you place them all over your hideout. During a hideout defense when another player tries to raid your hideout, your positioned thugs will be able to use furniture and the like as cover, helping them survive longer.
That’s all for Batman: Arkham Underworld.
