Batman: Arkham Knight Riddler Missions Guide – How to Beat Balancing Act

For this challenge, the Riddler will instruct you that it is urgent that you head over to Chinatown. Remember to bring your Batmobile since you’ll need it to complete this Riddler mission. But this isn’t another racetrack. This Riddler mission is more of a puzzle and it’s all about balancing.

Similar to the last mission, the Riddler will bring you underground. When you get out of the elevator, head forwards until you reach a fork and then proceed up both ramps on the left until you are on the platform with the Riddler button and activate it. Once you are there, get out of the Batmobile and use the Batmobile remote.

Drive the Batmobile onto the balancing ramp and use O on PS4 or B on Xbox One to remove the bar holding the ramp in place. Once the ramp can move freely, weigh yourself on the opposite side of the Riddler button and when it reaches the bottom, rev up your engine, boost up your turbo, and ramp your way to the top.

Drive over the red platform and then stop. Make sure you are completely off the red platform before activating the Riddler switch command button, and then progress across. You’ll be faced with another balancing ramp. Same as before, use your turbo boost to shoot across. Once on the other side, fire the power winch and rev your engine.

This will complete this part of the challenge and will cause Nigma to go into the next phase of his diabolical plot. The player switches to Catwoman in a room full of cabinets full of keys. Most of them will kill her, one of them won’t.

This is pretty simple. Look at the diagram; it’s an aerial view of the room that Catwoman is in. Once you know that, it should be pretty easy to match the pattern in the room with the one on the wall and pick the green highlighted cabinet.

Congrats! You’ve completed the challenge and earned yourself the Pieces of the Puzzle trophy.
