Batman: Arkham Knight All 14 Most Wanted Side Missions Guide on PC, PS4 & Xbox One

Here's a guide which will give you tips and strategy on how to finish all 14 Most Wanted Side Missions in Batman: Arkham Knight for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Batman: Arkham Knight Most Wanted Side Missions Guide
The Most Wanted Menu in the Main Menu / Pause Menu allows Batman to easily keep track of the various missions and side missions he encounters in Gotham City. Select a mission category and instantly set a Waypoint for the next objective or starting point in that category.

Note: While playing, select the bottom entry on the radial menu (or press down on the Directional-Pad) to see Batman’s overall progress toward completing each Most Wanted category.

Tip: Finishing the Most Wanted side missions will also give you some nice bonus XP, you’ll receive 3 WayneTech Upgrade Points as you complete each Most Wanted case.

Important Knightfall Protocol Tip: Although you “only” need to capture 7 of Gotham City’s Most Wanted villains and put them behind bars at the GCPD building to activate the Knightfall Protocol ending after beating Scarecrow. But you actually have to complete all 14 Most Wanted cases — and lock up all 11 villains and all militia criminals in the city to bring the GCPD at 100% capacity — is a requirement towards 100% game completion. Which is the only way to receive the true final ending to Batman: Arkham Knight!

As our “Batman: Arkham Knight Endings Guide” shows, it’s well worth the effort for the extra scenes.

Unlockables: Completing all Most Wanted Side Missions will help to unlock the following Achievements / Trophies…

Most Wanted Side Mission 1: The Perfect Crime + Mutilated Body Locations
Get ready to complete all Batman: Arkham Knight Most Wanted Side Missions!

XCV will be your guide through the game’s most difficult side missions.

How To Get Started With Your First Most Wanted Side Missions?:

• STEP #1: At the start of the game’s main story, you’ll need to put Poison Ivy in a GCPD isolation cell. Although some won’t be found until you’ve progressed further into the main story.

• STEP #2: Once she’s locked up you can talk to Commissioner Gordon at his desk where another cop will activate 3 cases for Detective Batman to investigate. These are of course the first 3 Most Wanted side missions: The Perfect Crime, The Riddler’s Revenge & The Line of Duty.

• STEP #3: Open the “Most Wanted Side Missions” via the “Main Menu” (press pause when in-game) to select & start going after your first Most Wanted villain arrest.

Case Synopsis: Investigate posed mutilated bodies left by the serial killer Professor Pyg. Then defeat him to lock him up in the GCPD cell.

How To Unlock: This case is 1 of 3 cases that open after taking Poison Ivy into the GCPD building’s isolation cell.

The locations for the mutilated bodies can be found by listening for opera music, or check the map coordinates below.


Overview for the Mutilated Body Locations Guide:

• Mutilated Body Location #1: At map coordinates (1507, 3329) on Bleake Island — Skin, ear. Muscle , hip. Bone, hip.
• Mutilated Body Location #2: At map coordinates (2000, 2475) on Bleake Island — Skin, arm. Muscle, pacemaker. Bone, knee.
• Mutilated Body Location #3: At map coordinates (3083, 1864) on Founders’ Island — Skin, ribs. Muscle, eye. Bone, arm.
• Mutilated Body Location #4: At map coordinates (2800, 2448) on Founders’ Island — Skin, chest. Muscle, bicep. Bone, toes.
• Mutilated Body Location #5: At map coordinates (2350, 2018) on Miagani Island — Skin, thigh. Muscle, kidney. Bone, skull.
• Mutilated Body Location #6: At map coordinates (1941, 1584) on Miagani Island — Skin, thigh. Muscle, throat. Bone, pinky.
• Professor Pyg Location: At Pretty Dolls Parlor shop in Ryker Heights on Founders’ Island.

Professor Pyg Boss Fight Strategy: During the boss fight Lazlo Valentin AKA Professor Pyg and his Dollotrons, it’s not necessary to beatdown on the Dollotrons for as long as seen in the video guide, since it takes about 16-20 hits to take them out this way, and you will be interrupted by another Dollotron or Pyg’s butcher knives, which restarts the beatdown. Just make sure to reach Critical (yellow combo numbers) to be able to perform an instant Takedown.

The beatdown allows you to time Pyg’s knife throws so you don’t lose your combo. I don’t think it’s possible to perfect free flow this because the combo breaks when you need to perform the environmental takedown on Pyg, using the operating table to knock him out.

Most Wanted Side Mission 2: Riddler’s Revenge + Trophy Locations
How To Unlock: This case is 1 of 3 cases that open after taking Poison Ivy into the GCPD building’s isolation cell. But later parts of this side mission won’t be accessible until you reach the Pinkney Orphanage in story mode.

Case Synopsis: Defeat the Riddler and rescue Catwoman.

Trophy Locations: All 243 Riddler Trophies & other Riddler collectibles have to be found to save Catwoman. You can find every last one using our “Batman: Arkham Knight Riddler Trophies Locations Guide“.

The Riddler Boss Fight Note: You can fight the Riddler when you collect all of the riddles, trophies and destructible objects. Practically all collectibles in the game.


Most Wanted Side Mission 3: The Line of Duty + Missing Firefighter Locations
How To Unlock: This case is 1 of 3 cases that open after taking Poison Ivy into the GCPD building’s isolation cell. Although some won’t be found until you’ve progressed further into the main story.

After rescuing the last of the 15 firefighters, to end the side mission you must free the captain and bring him back to GCPD building.

Tip: By defusing all explosive devices, you can lure Deathstroke out to fight him in this tank. It’s very useful to have the Batmobile Weapon upgrade for the 60mm Cannon Cobra lure, since you have to destroy about 6 of them before taking on Deathstroke.

Most Wanted Side Mission 9: Friend In Need
How To Unlock: Won’t become available until you’ve progressed far enough into the main story. This mission opens up after the ‘City of Fear’ mission reaches 70% completion.

Case Synopsis: Investigate the loss of contact with Lucius Fox. Search his last known location at Wayne Tower.

Thomas Elliot — the Identity Thief AKA Hush — intrudes upon Wayne Tower as Bruce Wayne and takes Lucius Fox hostage, and demands Batman to go retrieve Wayne to save Lucius’ life.


Most Wanted Side Mission 10: Lamb to the Slaughter
How To Unlock: Won’t become available until you’ve progressed far enough into the main story. This mission opens up after the ‘City of Fear’ mission reaches 90% completion.

Case Synopsis: Investigate the Lady of Gotham and bring Jack Ryder to safety.


Fight Strategies:
1) Sabotage the two weapon crates.
2) Build up combo meter until critical and dismantle both enemy knives.
3) Then throw counter ERRBODY into that electrified fence.

You will want to Counter and Cape Stun more than Strike. Evade Jump over a cult member before firing the Special Combo Gadget weapon ensures that you don’t lose your combo and have enough time to counter (a dodge always resets enemy AI parameters). Remember that you get more XP from variations than a high combo count.

Aftewards, use the Remote Electrical Charge gun to disable the generators to apprehend Deacon Blackfire and save that insufferable Jack Ryder.

Most Wanted Side Mission 11: Gunrunner

How To Unlock: Won’t become available until you’ve progressed the main story up to later in the game during “Chapter 3: It Is Dangerous Out There”.

Case Synopsis: Find and destroy all of Penguin’s weapon caches. It starts by awaiting the Penguin weapons van location update from Nightwing.


Most Wanted Side Mission 12: Two-Faced Bandit
