Catwoman, as she appears in Arkham City

The notorious cat-burglar. Thanks to her claws, she can attach herself to any ceiling that allows it, and hide above her enemies.

Unlocked by:

  • (AC) Buying and installing the Catwoman Story DLC.
  • (AK) She is available to use from the start.

  • In Arkham City, she can be used in free roam, and has her own set of Riddler trophies planted on the environment. However, the game needs to completed to allow switching between her and Batman.
  • In City, her armor can only be upgraded to half of that of the other characters.
  • In Knight, most levels don't allow her to attach to ceilings, as they weren't made with Catwoman in mind. However, she now can get all armor upgrades, and her run remains silent. Oddly, she cannot perform Dual Takedowns anymore, for unknown reasons.
