How to Unlock the 4th Skill Tree in Gotham Knights

One step closer to filling Batman's shoes.

Gotham Knights has a surprising amount of depth when it comes to customization and leveling. As you gain more levels, you’ll gain more Ability Points. Use them to spec into new things to make your character even stronger, just like you would in any other RPG. However, as you play more, you’ll realize there’s a 4th skill tree, but how do you unlock it in Gotham Knights? Here’s how to do that.

How to Unlock the 4th Skill Tree in Gotham Knights

As the game says, “Complete Knighthood Challenges to unlock.” It is pretty straightforward but can be a bit tedious at first. What you will need to do is the following:

  • Complete the Timed Strike Training
  • Stop 10 premeditated crimes
  • Defeat 3 minibosses

The challenges are all the same for every character, including the Timed Strike Training. Even if you have already completed that for one character, you have to do it again for each.

It’s important you unlock Knighthood as fast as you can, though. This will grant you the ability to fly around on Patrol and unlock your hero’s ‘ultimate’ ability. Flying will be extremely useful when you are tasked to complete things like Organ Trafficking events or Time Trials.

As for your ultimate, these will become integral to your Momentum Abilities. They do not require you to build up Momentum to activate, but they do have long cooldowns because of how powerful they are.

Finally, you will also notice that the Knighthood tree will have abilities that directly strengthen the lethality and efficiency of the aforementioned ultimate. There will also be more universal perks in this tree, although they will cost a lot more Ability Points than those in your other trees. Because of this, you want to find a good balance between speccing all into Knighthood and your three other main trees.

Gotham Knights is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
