The villainous group and their confusing puzzle

by Christian Bognar


The Court of Owls are here in Gotham Knights, and there is a pretty high chance you are struggling with the owl head puzzle. With 16 puzzles for players to complete in the main story and additional puzzles featured in the side quests, this particular one seems to be the most confusing as there is not much information at the player’s disposal. If you are having problems getting this puzzle out of the way, don’t worry — we will give you a quick step-by-step walkthrough so you can finally progress through the main story.

How to Solve the Owl Head Puzzle

Players will come in contact with the owl head puzzle during the main story at the 5.2 mark. Players will enter a big room with an owl-head-looking sphere filled with light and trapped with nowhere to go. Unfortunately, players will not be allowed to progress the main story until they complete this puzzle. Below are the steps that need to be completed in the correct order.

  • Grapple on top of the wall opposite the door you entered.
  • Jump off and step on the pedestal to the left
  • Walk over to the pedal furthest right and step on it
  • Grapple to the top above the door you initially entered through
  • Progress through the door that just opened on the opposite end

Congratulations! You have completed the Owl Head Puzzle and can officially progress further into the story.
