All Robin Momentum Abilities

Jarrod Garripoli

In Gotham Knights you’ll have two ways to progress your character, one of them will be your standard skill tree which gives you passives that increase the strength of your character, which is gained by leveling your character or completing specific missions. The other method of progression is “Momentum Abilities”. These are your special attacks that you’ll be using throughout the game, and for the most part be the predominant way of defeating enemies when used in combination with melee, and ranged attacks.

You can only use Momentum Abilities by spending Momentum which you can gain by attacking enemies with normal or ranged attacks. Momentum can be found at the bottom right of your screen, and you can hold up to four segments (Nightwing gets an extra one from his skill tree) of it, although you’ll start the game with only one. Some abilities cost more Momentum than others, so you have to pick and choose the right ability at the moment.

How to Unlock All of Robin’s Momentum Abilities

Momentum abilities unlock as you progress through the story, and will usually require you to complete a challenge of some kind to unlock them. Here is a list of all the Momentum abilities that Robin has, and how you can get them.
