Gotham Knights Knighthood guide: how to unlock the glider and other traversal abilities

There are numerous ways to get around the city in Gotham Knights, but the most efficient method is locked behind a separate progression system called Knighthood. Early on, players can utilize the Batcycle, grappling hook, fast travel, or even travel on foot to get around. While these methods work just fine, you’ll want to gain access to the enhanced traversal system by reaching Knighthood. These different means of getting around look different across the four playable characters. For instance, Batgirl can glide, while Robin utilizes a teleporting device created by Justice League technology.

But how exactly does Knighthood work and what do you need to do to unlock the new traversal abilities? Here’s what you need to know.

Knighthood requirements

There are three main requirements to Knighthood that can be completed at any time during a playthrough. These are not missable and the game tells you what you need to do within the Challenges menu.

Complete the Timed Strike tutorial

Within the Belfry, make your way over to the training area by the dummy. Under the Advanced Training menu, you’ll see a Timed Strikes tutorial, which requires you to perform five standard and heavy Timed Strikes attacks.

Stop 10 Premeditated Crimes

Premeditated Crimes are ones that you can gather intel for on the previous night’s patrol. As you engage with regular Crimes, be sure to scan your enemies ahead of time. You’ll then come across certain enemies with a question mark above their heads, indicating you can interrogate them for information. Doing so will unlock a Premeditated Crime, which will appear on the next night’s patrol. These are indicated by a red marker on the map. Once you stop 10 of these, you’ll earn credit towards Knighthood. Keep in mind, you likely won’t come across 10 enemies to interrogate within one night’s patrol, so be prepared to spend a bit of time on this one, unfortunately.

Defeat 3 Enforcers

Enforcers are heavy enemies that appear as part of Crimes, so be sure to keep an eye out for them as you gather intel for Premeditated Crimes. You’ll probably come across these naturally as you grind for XP and gear.

How to unlock new traversal abilities

After you’ve met the requirements listed above, visit the Belfry and you’ll see a new icon tied to the character you’re playing as. These appear in locations all around the Belfry, so walk towards them, interact with them, and you’ll get a short cutscene. You then have to interact with Batman’s mask and you’ll gain access to whichever traversal ability corresponds to a particular character.

  • Batgirl: Glider
  • Nightwing: Glider
  • Robin: Teleporter
  • Red Hood: Mystical Leap

Unfortunately, Knighthood progression does not carry over across each character, meaning you need to meet the requirements four separate times to unlock everyone’s traversal ability. Hope you like stopping crimes!

The Sims 5: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
sims 4 for rent expansion pack shared living the 6

It's time to brush up on your Simlish if it's rusty because the long-awaited The Sims 5, aka Project Rene, is officially on the way. This has been the longest gap between main entries since the series began, and while we did get tons of expansions for The Sims 4 to hold us over, plus the change to it becoming free to play, we're more than ready for a new entry. Each time a new game in the franchise comes out, die-hard fans always need to have a bit of skepticism about what features will be there -- both new and returning. Again, the last entry eventually got to a great spot, but it certainly wasn't there at launch. We can't answer all your questions yet, but here's everything we know about The Sims 5.
Release date speculation

Still referred to by the code name Project Rene, The Sims 5 (which we will call it until the official title is revealed) does not have a release window as of now. Developer Maxis did state it was working on it in October 2022 at the Behind the Sims Summit presentation. The only clue we got there was this statement from Lyndsay Pearson, franchise creative vice president: "Over the next couple of years, we'll continue sharing updates with all of you on Project Rene."

The main characters of Grand Theft Auto V stand side-by-side.

A slam-dunk of a game for the talented developers at Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto V has been out for several years now, but it’s still an extremely popular title. We’re also guessing there’s some renewed interest in the game because the world knows we’re getting a Grand Theft Auto VI in the somewhat-near future. If you’ve ever played a GTA game, you’ll know the going can get a little tough from time to time. This is why it’s nice to live in a world with cheat codes. 

Whether you just want to have a ton of fun with unlimited health and ammunition, or you’re seriously struggling with a certain section of the game, we’ve rounded up all the cheat codes you’ll need to know for GTA V, for platforms including PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC.
How to use GTA 5 cheats
There are a few ways to enter GTA 5 cheat codes. The first and easiest is to use your cellphone. You can open your cellphone by pressing Up on the D-pad. From there, enter the corresponding number, and the cheat will fire. You can also classically input cheats by following a specific button combination. The combinations are the same across PlayStation and Xbox, but we've split them up to account for their different button-naming conventions, so it should feel more natural reading and entering them.
