Gotham Knights must master the Loot Grind

Gotham Knights is evolving in the last few months leading up to release, but only so much has yet been shared. Gotham Knights‘ Marketing has focused almost entirely on getting to know WB Games Montreal’s take on the bat family and now injecting a lot of gameplay through individual character spotlights. Some fans are happy with that Gotham Knights currently looks like it while others aren’t, but the shared concerns from fans have been solid, such as how the fight plays out and how crime scene puzzles are designed Gotham Knights.


Another worry about Gotham Knights is that the gameplay can be reduced to a looting grind from moment to moment, especially in the free time of the players in the open world or in search of new suit skins. In fact, most open-world action RPGs feel the need to fill their environments with filler content to occupy any area where much of the game’s content can lead to unsatisfactory bloat. if Gotham Knights As its open world revolves around a loot grind, that might not necessarily be a disadvantage, but it must make its grind exceptionally engaging and rewarding if it is.

Random crimes in Gotham Knights are looking viable

Gotham Knights‘Nightwing and Red Hood Gameplay Walkthrough gave fans a glimpse into two distinct criminal activities that players will encounter while patrolling Gotham City. One crime was an illegal hack while the other was an illegal broadcast.

The former challenges players to simply take out a small group of enemies while attempting to hack a distant device, although there are only about five enemies for players to contend with and the hacking percentage increases too slowly when that there might be a sense of urgency. The latter asks players to pursue a vehicle, turning it upside down on contact and fighting the enemies that crawl out of it.

These random crimes are state of the art and mimic the same random crimes players have come to expect from most DC or Marvel open world action games. But because of Gotham Knights‘ Combat and peculiar enemy AI, these crimes seem much more persistent or slow. Having only a handful of enemies per random crime seems lackluster, but it can also come down to how far apart they are and how strong each enemy seems.

None of the previously revealed random crimes in Gotham Knights look difficult or interesting, and the concern is that the rest of the game’s other crimes and quests will look as mediocre as this one. It is made clear that regulators and other factional gangs will be rampant Gotham Knightsand whether they’ll saturate the open world with fun activities or a mindless meal of loot is yet to be seen.

Loot seems plentiful and potentially cheesy in Gotham Knights

As Gotham Knights currently looks completely impressionistic from an artistic or aesthetic point of view. It should also be noted that game director Geoff Ellenor previously explained that players can customize the way Gotham Knights‘ UI and HUD look like in-game, so in certain gameplay presentations the game may not look how it looks to every player.

That said Gotham Knights Has been shown to have massive and interpolating pickups in the environment that fall from defeated enemies. This is most evident in the gameplay for Gotham Knights‘ Red Hood, where a blue pistol icon appears that is almost as big as Red Hood himself, as well as a bunch of tiny red magnifying glasses and other miscellaneous pick-up resources that fly over the character and are absorbed by him when they do are near.

Gotham Knights‘ Workbench menus have been glossed over without delving particularly deep into the monotony or struggling to gather enough resources to craft. Once these resources, mods, and other items are fully described, it will be easier to get a sense of how this RPG design might evolve for the duration of Gotham Knights‘Quests.

But right now, the screen is filling up fast with several pick-ups, and the workbench’s crafting tab has a list of surplus materials that hopefully won’t be a hassle to micromanage. Players who want specific gear, suits, color variants, and other crafting items might be happy to indulge in these loot loops, however Gotham Knights shouldn’t have to resort to tedious activities that players have to do ad nauseam for their desired aesthetic.

Gotham Knights Loot Grind must be completed with extraordinary quests

It’s currently hard to say how exciting side quests will be Gotham Knights since WB Games Montreal only got a glimpse of fragmented parts of a pre-alpha build. This side quest was featured in the first official gameplay reveal for Gotham Knightswhich takes place “in the middle of the Mr. Freeze storyline” and may change drastically between the time it was shown and the time the game is actually released.

Mr. Freeze’s role in Gotham Knights contributes to rogue crimes subplots that feature additional antagonists, and it’s likely that these rogue crimes will be the most rewarding for fans of the mythology. Similarly, there may be other crimes or quests that do not involve villains that also need to be exceptional and engaging to at least disguise the idea that they are fill-in missions designed as mundane loot loops.

Additionally, certain quests have a different base difficulty related to the player’s current level as suggested in the game’s open-world menu, and this can also affect how much the player earns from each quest. Since Villain Crimes actually have the player tracking and fighting Super Villains, there’s a good chance they’ll be the most fun.

Aside from the Court of Owls, no other notable antagonists have been officially revealed yet, other than the Penguin who may just be there Gotham Knights in an explanatory role rather than as an antagonist that players fight in his own crime villain storyline. But that is exactly the case with these rogue crimes Gotham Knights hopefully introduces dynamic antagonists to make questing as fun as possible amidst RPG progression.

Gotham Knights Slated for release on October 25th for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
