Playing through Batman: Arkham Knight will grant players access to a whole slew of crime-fighting gadgetry that easily trumps the offerings of the previous games in the series. Like most action games, each gadget is introduced as you come across a need for it, with the exception of one. The Freeze Blast is noticeably absent from all of the tools that are simply handed to Batman on a silver platter. The thing is, this is a fact that may fly under your radar until it’s time to collect all of the Riddler trophies.
If you’ve been playing Batman: Arkham Knight (or any Batman Arkham game for that matter), you will have undoubtedly noticed that the Riddler sometimes places his trophies behind puzzles/obstacles. One very rare obstacle this time around is the good old-fashioned steam vent. The only way past these deadly little tubes of heat is to freeze over the open end. To do so, you will need a gadget capable of producing ice, something that the game never directly gives you, so we’re here to tell you exactly where to pick it up.
Head on over to Panessa Studios, enter the building as you normally would and take the elevator down. Enter the room with the quarantined cells and make your way towards the first one from the left. Next to this cell is a table with an odd blue item on top of it. That item is your Freeze Blast.
Not only is this item required for obtaining certain Riddler trophies, but it can also serve Batman quite well in combat situations. Freeze advancing enemies dead in their tracks, set up proximity mines, or rain cold hell upon your adversaries as you glide in.
Did you find it weird that the game never just told you where the item was? Happy to see the return of this cool gadget? Did you walk right by the item the first time you were in the room? Let us know in the comments below.
