Gotham Knights allows players to take on the roles of Batgirl, Red Hood, Robin (Tim Drake), and Nightwing. One of the coolest aspects of the game is that it allows players to switch the main character back at headquarters. This means that players don’t have to play the game four times to see how each of the four characters fight.

There are story reasons to play Gotham Knights four times though. Now, each of the four characters has their own skill tree as is typical in an action RPG. For Batgirl, there are four branches to look into including Justice, Grit, Oracle, and Knighthood. Of the many skills available, some should be unlocked as fast as possible.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

8/8 Glide

Players begin with three skill trees unlocked for all four characters. To unlock the fourth, Knighthood, players have to do a few tutorial workouts in the Belfry simulator. This should be done as soon as this battle sim unlocks as there are some truly great skills hidden in Knighthood.

The first is called Glide and it allows Batgirl to fly around on her cape. The mechanic works similarly to how Batman’s glide ability is controlled in Arkham City and Arkham Knight. This will allow getting around the open-world city easier.

7/8 HP+

HP+ is a skill that shouldn’t be too hard to figure out which is under Grit. It increases Batgirl’s health by 40% which is a huge bonus in the early hours of Gotham Knights. This skill is especially recommended if players plan to go through this venture alone without the assistance of a friend.

The more health players have, the better chance they can survive a brutal onslaught of enemies which is RPGs 101. It’s great that multiplayer co-op is a choice and is not a forced feature unlike a live experience like in Destiny or Anthem. Those games can be played solo too but players must be online.

6/8 Second Wind

Second Wind is another skill under Grit that can help solo players out in the campaign. It gives players the opportunity to revive Batgirl once from death. There is an additional skill that players can purchase after this, Vigilante Resolve, which increases the number of revives to two.

An auto-revive system has been a part of RPGs forever, usually in the form of a spell though like Auto-Life in the Final Fantasy games. Second Wind is useful during multiplayer sessions too even though respawning is basically the same thing. The more medical help players can get in an RPG, the better.

5/8 Sense Of Victory

Sense of Victory is the last Grit skill worth pointing out in Gotham Knights. It is also the last skill players can unlock in this tree, meaning it is an ultimate ability. This skill will heal players by 4% when they defeat an enemy normally.

If players are a bit more skilled in their combat abilities then they can earn 8% of their health back. All they need to do is perform a stealth takedown or throw the enemy in submission. A leech skill like this is great to have in an action game that throws dozens of enemies at players.

4/8 Digital Ghost

Digital Ghost is a skill on the Oracle tree that will make sneaking around easier. Batgirl has a knack for hacking into computers, making cameras and other detectors useless. However, hacking takes time and sometimes these consoles are not easy to find.

Digital Ghost then is a good skill to buy because it makes Batgirl invisible to cameras and sensors magically. If players are confident enough in their ability to find hackable computers to turn these systems offline then they shouldn’t buy this skill. For players that want to stealth through situations as fast as possible though, buy Digital Ghost.

3/8 Super Health Packs

Super Health Packs is another Oracle skill and is another name that should be obvious. This skill will upgrade the healing capabilities of a normal medical pack. Unfortunately, it won’t increase the number of medical packs Batgirl can carry but it will heal 20% more of her health.

There is a bonus effect to Super Health Packs as well. Defense will increase by 50% for ten seconds after using this item. This temporary boost is great to have especially for boss encounters like Mr. Freeze.

2/8 Enhanced Combo

Enhanced Combo is another Knighthood skill and this will increase the combos of melee and ranged attacks by one. Normally action games like Gotham Knights increase the number of combos by more than this through steady upgrades.

Still, even with the single upgrade, this will make fighting enemies easier. It may take some time to get used to the new flow of battle though, so it would perhaps be a good idea to train in the battle sim again or to go after some low-tier crimes before jumping back into the main missions.

1/8 Drone Firepower

Players will eventually unlock a drone that can be summoned freely. The catch is that this drone runs on a cooldown, unlike Batgirl’s other skills which can be used infinitely so long as they have their meter filled. Most of the skills under Knighthood increase the potential of this drone such as Drone Firepower.

This skill naturally increases the fire rate of the drone, giving it more opportunities to hit enemies before disappearing. Players should be sure to save the drone for dire situations like the boss fight against Clayface, as it’s easily one of Batgirl’s best upgrades in Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights was released on October 21, 2022 and is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
