Batman Arkham Knight – The Disruptor Causes Enemies’ Guns to Explode

Posted 1 year ago

The latest Batman Arkham Knight trailer “Those who follow you” revealed a new weapon called the Disruptor. This new gadget has been tailored to meet the challenges of Gotham City’s vast landscape through its long range capabilities, and provides options that bolster Batman’s ability to control engagements like never before.

Core Abilities

The Disruptor has three charges per engagement, requiring Batman to carefully select how best to use each charge in order to compliment his plan of attack. The core abilities at Batman’s disposal out of the box are:

  • Jamming enemies weapons when they attempt to fire at Batman
  • Exploding enemy weapons (by using two charges on the same weapon)
  • Rigging weapon crates to shock enemies who try to arm themselves
  • Tagging vehicles with tracking devices for Batmobile pursuits

Expanding Batman’s Tactical Options

The Disruptor provides Batman with greater tactical flexibility in any engagement before it even begins. Before combat, the Disruptor can be used to jam the weapons of an opponent, buying Batman precious time to gain the advantage and land the first attack. In Predator scenarios, the Disruptor can be employed to target various enemy devices by rendering them inactive, or even turning them against their owners.

Additionally, the Disruptor is equipped with a long range scope, allowing Batman to survey and set up control of the situation from the rooftops of Gotham City with pinpoint accuracy.

Extensive Upgrades

The Disruptor has an extensive selection of upgrades to choose from – each providing their own unique advantage to Batman.

For example, the ‘additional charge’ upgrade provides more simultaneous options for each engagement, allowing additional greater situational control over the devices and weapons that could become an obstacle.

Alternatively, a high level upgrade is available to Batman allowing him to hack and disrupt the turret of the Arkham Knight’s Drone Tanks. This creates the opportunity for Batman to draw the Drones attention on foot, only for its turret to backfire and self-destruct when it attempts to fire.

The new feature that Game Director Sefton Hill has been teasing is a new co-op mode which looks simply amazing with Batman teaming up with Nightwing, Catwoman or Robin and executing some crazy tag team moves on the many enemies he faces throughout Gotham. Whether the new mode is part of a different campaign or part of a challenge is unclear at the moment but it’s most definitely looking quite awesome.

For the first time ever, watch Batman: Arkham Knight’s exciting new “Dual Play” mechanic in action as you switch seamlessly between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in free-flow combat.


Batman Arkham Knight is shaping up to be the best adventure of the caped crusader yet.

With a mature and deep story and an incredibly advanced fighting system, as is quite evident in the “All Who Follow You” trailer as well as in the “Officer Down” trailer, it will most likely be one of the big contenders for Game of the Year.
