Occupy Gotham

Part 2 - Miagani Island Tower Locations

There are a total of eight militia Watchtowers located on Miagani Island and they can be found in the following locations:

Miagani Island Watch Tower 01:

Map co-ordinates: (3255, 2169)

Description: On the Eiffel Tower-type structure beside the Miagani Botanical Gardens.

This watchtower has a definite predator mode feel to it. There are six armed Soldiers and a Boa Drone patrolling the higher levels of the building. You should use you usual predatory tactics to take them out.

There are hatches between levels of the area and cables strung above the area which will allow you to sneak up on enemies undetected. You can also use the Remote Hacking Device to download the codes to the Boa Drone and have some fun with that. As per usual wait for enemies to become isolated before taking them down using a range of silent takedowns and corner takedowns to prevent detection.

When you only have a few enemies left, creating a distraction and luring a group of enemies into Fear Multi-Takedowns is also a good idea to get the job over and done with more quickly!

Once you have eliminated all of the enemies you can then find the command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 02:

Map co-ordinates: (2841, 2394)

Description: Along the water about halfway between Penitence Bridge leading to Founders’ Island and Mercy Bridge.

This watchtower is essentially a small predator area. We’ll need to deal with the five Soldiers. We’ll also need to contend with the presence of mines scattered atop the rooftop and a wall mounted Sentry Turret overlooking the area. We will need to use the Remote Hacking Device to blind the Sentry Turret before we set foot on the rooftop.

Due to the small number of enemies, this is actually not too difficult. We can sabotage the weapons crates or mines with the Disruptor (if you have the upgrades) before using the Voice Synthesizer to have guards inspect them. Additionally, causing a distracting and performing a Fear Multi-Takedown will give you the opportunity to wipe out the majority of enemies in a single action.

Once you have eliminated all of the enemies you can then find the command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 03:

Map co-ordinates: (2738, 2655)

Description: Just west of Mercy Bridge leading to Bleake Island.

This ‘Occupy Gotham’ watchtower is another predator-type scenario located on the roof of the same building where we found the Penguin during the main game’s story. At this point however the enemies present are somewhat different… and more difficult. We’ll have to contend with eight Soldiers (including mine layers and one with a detective Mode Scrambler) and a Minigunner.

Due to the presence of the Detective Mode Scrambler and the Minigunner, this watchtower will be difficult. As such, you will want to maintain position on the cables strung overhead or the vantage points so that you can keep an eye on the enemies below and pick off isolated Thugs one at a time when you see an opening until you are able to remove the Scrambler from the equation.

In addition to the vantage points and overhead cables, there is a large underground tunnel network and several destructible windows/walls in the small building atop the roof. All of these should be exploited as you see fit to take out successive bad guys.

Remember to leave the Minigunner for last as attacking him will draw any remaining enemies to your location.

Once you have eliminated all of the enemies you can then find the command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 04:

Map co-ordinates: (3037, 2826)

Description: On the rooftop of the Bank of Gotham building directly west of the northernmost broken bridge on the east side of Miagani Island.

This watch tower is a small enclosure found on top of the roof of the Bank of Gotham building. It is guarded by a group of eight Soldiers (two with shields and two with melee weapons), two Combat Experts, a Medic and a Brute with a shield.

Before triggering the fight, be sure to use the Disruptor to sabotage the three weapons crates scattered around the area. As per our standard operating procedure, get the Medic out of action as soon as possible before focusing on other enemies. Note that there are several environmental takedowns and melee weapons that can be utilised whilst taking on the Brutes. You’ll also need to be on the lookout for projectiles due to several tossable objects located around the area.

Once you have eliminated all of the enemies you can then find the command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 05:

Map co-ordinates: (3318, 2871)

Description: On the rooftop with the two large statues directly east of the Grand Avenue Station.

This watchtower is a little different from the others as it is comprised on not one, but two different command consoles. The watchtower itself is comprised of a small bridge linking two statues around the top of a building and as such there is not a lot of room. Before we begin, you’ll want to make your way to the easternmost of the two statues and use the Explosive Gel on the console here to disable the sentry Turrets overlooking the second command console on the bridge below.

With the guns disabled, the watchtower becomes a standard fight scenario. There are eight soldiers (three with guns), a Medic and a Brute in need of elimination. Use the Disruptor to disable the firearms and weapons crate before dropping down and fighting the group. As pre usual, prioritise the medic before anything else!

Once you have knocked out all of the enemies you can then find the second command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 06:

Map co-ordinates: (3119, 2529)

Description: In Grand Avenue on a high-up bridged walkway between the ‘Black Canary Club’ and ‘Orb Theatre’ building rooftops.

This entire watchtower is located on a small bridge linking two skyscrapers together. There are two wall mounted Sentry Turrets at either end and two rotating Sentry Turrets on the bridge either side of the command console.

The trick to completing this watchtower is to pick an end to start with (either east or west will do) and use the Remote Hacking Device to disable the nearest wall mounted Sentry Turret. Move up to the closest Sentry Turret on the bridge when it is safe to do so and dismantle it. Then retreat, move to the opposite side and repeat the process.

You’ll be able to approach the command console and use your Explosive Gel on to blow it up once the two ground-based Sentry Turrets are down.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 07:

Map co-ordinates: (2944, 2158)

Description: On the roof of Elliot Memorial Hospital, just at the end of Penitence Bridge leading to Founders’ island.

This watchtower is probably the toughest on Miagani Island due to the enemy presence. It is also one of the more unique watchtowers as it is comprised of not one, but two different command consoles. Before you start fighting, you’ll want to make your way to the northwestern tower on the rooftop and use the Explosive Gel on the console here to disable the Sentry Turrets overlooking the second command console below.

With the guns disabled, the watchtower becomes a standard fight scenario. There are eight Soldiers (two with stun sticks, two with melee weapons), four Combat Experts and two Brutes and we’ll need to give each of their noggins a floggin’!

There are multiple environmental takedowns available to make things a little easier, but there is no sugar coating it - this can be a really tough fight due to the stun sticks and the Combat Experts in play and taking things defensively early on to focus on countering (especially the Combat Experts) is probably a good way about starting the fight. Once you have eliminated a few enemies, you can become more aggressive. Try to use the environmental takedowns to deal with the Brutes when you get the opportunity and keep an eye out for incoming projectiles.

Once you have knocked out all of the enemies you can then find the second command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.

Miagani Island Watch Tower 08:

Map co-ordinates: (3008, 1864)

Description: North of the Salvation Bridge exit to Founder’s Island.

This watch tower is another small enclosure-type combat experience guarded by a group of five Soldiers (one with a melee weapon) and a Brute and is reminiscent of many of the fights you encounter early on in the game. If you can pull off a Fear Multi-Takedown to lead off the fight, you’ll halve the numbers (or more) immediately, making it even easier!

Once you have eliminated all of the enemies you can then find the command console and use your Explosive Gel on it to blow it up.
