8 months ago · Guide Information


Detective Mode

Detective mode is a vision mode similar to those seen in the newest Tomb Raider and more recently in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt that allows Batman to see important objects in the environment. In detective mode generally the following are observable:


  • Blue enemies are unarmed or equipped with melee weapons.
  • Red enemies are equipped with firearms and should be approached with caution.
  • Green enemies are Riddler associates and can be interrogated for collectible locations.
  • Drones, sentry turrets and other mechanical enemies will appear in orange.

Armed enemies appear red (left) whilst the vents and other environmental objects appear as an orange colour (right).


  • Orange indicates objects you can interact with during predator mode – gratings, floor hatches, wall vents, vantage points, cables etc.
  • Orange can indicates control/computer panels and cabling leading to objects that they control such as turrets, fans, etc.
  • Light blue indicates destructible walls or windows that can be destroyed with Explosive Gel.
