Tips to play as Robin in Gotham Knights

● Robin’s decoys are much more helpful when fighting against a single enemy to create distractions. However, if you are fighting multiple ranged enemies, then the decoy will not be much effective.

● Use surveillance drones to activate certain fast travel points and reach the crimes more quickly to solve the cases.

● Robin’s damaging attacks are his melee strikes; try to use a combo of attack and dodge when fighting a bunch of enemies. This will help you to survive longer in the fight, and you will not suffer much Damage.

● Try to use the Bo Spin ability to deflect the incoming projectiles towards you, don’t just use it as an offensive tool; you should rely on it to get away from incoming Damage.

● Robin’s strength lies in his Stealth plays, so try to attack the enemies from the backlines and wait for the right opportunity to jump into the fight. ● Use your microbots when the enemies have gathered around you as the Damage on the explosion is area-wise; this will cause maximum Damage to the nearby enemies.
