Gotham Knights - Barbara Dancing

One of the biggest mysteries in Gotham Knights is how to unlock colorways. No matter how much crime and murder happens on the streets of Gotham, it’s those dang Colorways that are the hardest thing to wrap your head around.

And the game’s tooltips are frustratingly vague.

Gotham Knights - Colorways

“Finish Case File investigations, complete Challenges, explore, and experiment to unlock new Colorways.” Come on, how elusive can you get with your wording? To make matters worse, pretty much every online guide that I could find was just as vague, so no one seems to really know how these unlocks work.

So I worked my way through Gotham Knights‘ Colorways system to untangle how these are unlocked. Unlocking each one has a slightly different prerequisite, so I’ve listed out all of them.

Also, if you want a full guide to the game’s crafting system, I’ve got one here. For Colorways, keep reading!

Update: With Update 2.000 comes the new Showdowns game mode. This game mode will let you unlock some more Colorways. If you want a full guide on unlocking Showdowns, I’ve got one here. Continue on to see a complete list of Colorway unlocks in Gotham Knights.

How to apply Colorways once you’ve unlocked them

Gotham Knights - Colorways

Applying Colorways is super easy, and you can do it anywhere in the game, even when you’re out on patrol. Just go to the main menu, then go to the Gear tab. From there, you want to navigate to Styles. Once you’re there, simply go down to the Colorways option. Now you can change to any Colorway you’ve unlocked. Of course, you can only apply Colorways to the suit you’re currently wearing — you can’t change Colorways for transmogs.

As for bike, you’ll change Colorways while you’re in the Belfry. The Batcycle is tucked away in a corner of the Belfry to the right of the Batcomputer.

Gotham Knights - Batcycle

From here, just interact with the bike to open up the customization menu. Your Colorways are listed at the bottom of this menu.

Im only missing one colorway for the batcycle, it’s called cool and it’s the 29th one on the list of colors. Is it a new game plus reward or is it bugged? I haven’t heard anyone talk about it and I have no objectives or challenges relating to it.

I did all the side missions like Batman caches, collectibles, I literally did everything on the map and I did all the batcycle trials and traversal trials for every character. I basically 100% my first play through and unlocked everything except the cool colorway and that’s literally the only thing I don’t have. It could be bugged or we missed something.

Gordon signature and crimson batcycle colourways I got from batgirl and red hood’s first traversal trials respectively. Not sure if unlocks are in order or random from a pool.

I have all 60 batarangs but I do not have the blackout batcycle, do I need to finish the story before getting it?

Just wanted to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for doing this. I’ve enjoyed the game so far, and all I’ve wanted to do was unlock some of these colors, but have had no clue how to do most of them. Most websites say, “it’s luck,” and the game pretty much refuses to tell you how to unlock anything.

How do you finish the stories? I completed robins but I have no idea how I did it. I’ve switched between all the characters maxed out their levels got their travel ways and they all have level 30 armor and weapons

Hey this is by far the most comprehensive and complete guide I have found so thank you. Quick question I have all 60 batarangs and don’t have blackout. On the other hand I have yet to even unlock batcycle time trials and have gunmetal unlocked are these 2 colorways swapped?
