Secret Ship Hatch

Easter Eggs

On a small unassuming wooden ship in North Gotham Dock's Industrial District, beside a flashing red buoy, lies a secret hatch that leads down into the rather eerie interior of the ship. To gain access to it, you'll need to stand above the outline of the hatch and hack into the Gotham Municipal Network using the password CITYOFTERROR. The hatch opens and you're free to enter.

Arkham Island

Easter Eggs

Take a look across the Northeast perimeter wall into Arkham Island, and you'll notice that's it's full of the titan-enhanced ivy plants from the previous game in the series, Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Big Head Mode

Easter Eggs

Every game should have a big head mode, and thankfully Arkham City does. To activate it, whip out your cryographic sequencer and hold the LB and RB triggers down at the same time. With these held, rotate the analog sticks 10 times in opposite directions from each other (one clockwise, one counter-clockwise) to unlock big head mode for both Batman and his enemies.

Corner Cover Movement


While in corner cover, throw a batarang, and press LT and RT to have Batman catch it again. Now do the same again, and you'll notice that your position has mysteriously changed. It's like the continuity gaffes found in most movies, now brought to your favorite video game.

Costume Selection


From the save selection screen, highlight the save file of your choice and press left, left, down, down, left, left, right, up, up, down, to bring up the costume selection option.

Killer Croc

Easter Eggs

After defeating the nefarious Ra's al Ghul, head into the sewers and search for a wall with a button (that doesn't look at all out of place). Hit the button with a batarang to summon a killer croc (only slightly less out of place than the button).

New Game + Mode


Another feature every game should have is new game plus mode, and Arkham City has that too. To unlock it simply beat the game on any difficulty setting. This mode will let you keep all of your items and experience from the previous playthrough, but also up the difficulty of the enemies and bosses to compensate.

Secret Radio Messages

Easter Eggs

While looking for Riddler frequencies, you may happen to intercept curious messages with someone reading off numbers. The numbers are codes to secret messages, and take some cracking to figure out. One of the codes, once cracked reads: I will return Batman. That simple code can be solved with the formula A=1, B=2, etc.

Another code dishes out the numbers: 3 20 26 18 26 16 24 1 11 4 24 9 3 8 5 2 12 18 6 16 7 11 3 10 17 5 13 4 21 8. The formula for this one is different, and not quite so easy to crack. Can you figure it out?

Reference to TV Show (Lost)

Easter Eggs

If you're one of the millions of fans who made Lost one of the most popular shows on television, you just may catch a reference to the series within Arkham City. It occurs during the Joker's short speech during the main storyline, a speech which makes specific mention of television shows before the actual reference. So pay attention when you reach that point and see if you catch it.

The Crime Scene


Southwest of the Church/Medical Center you'll find the Crime Alleyway. This aptly named alley is of significant important to our caped hero, as it's where his parents were murdered before his eyes so many years ago, setting his journey into motion. You'll two silhouettes on the ground here that represent his parents. After clearing the area of enemies, activate the nearby rose to have Batman kneel and music play. If you hold this position and moment of tribute for one minute without doing anything, you'll unlock an achievement.
