How to Do a Timed Strike in Gotham Knights

In Gotham Knights, Batman is dead and a new large, criminal underworld has taken over Gotham City.

It’s now up to the Batman Family to protect Gotham, save its citizens, instill discipline in its cops, and fear its criminals.

The 4 knights are Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin.

In the game, you can solve mysteries that link the city’s history and defeat powerful villains.

Some quests and objectives like “Timed Strikes” are hard to complete because their hints can be vague.

It’s an open-world, action RPG set in a dynamic and interactive Gotham City.

You can play solo or co-op mode and stop criminal activity when you find it.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to do a timed strike as Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, or Robin in Gotham Knights.

How to do a timed strike in Gotham Knights

To do a timed strike in Gotham knights, you need to press the “Square” or “left-click” immediately before your first melee attack hits the enemy.

Repeat the process 5 times to complete the tutorial.

If you’re using Red Hood, doing a timed strike is more difficult, especially for Xbox players because he’s using ranged attacks.

For Xbox players using Red Hood, hit Y, and when the bullet is about to hit the enemy, press Y again.

Key points:

  • Before a melee attack hits, press “Square” or “left-click” again.
  • For Xbox players using Red Hood, press “Y”, then press “Y” again (before the bullet hits the enemy).

The tutorial requires you to do 5 timed strikes.

You can also hold down “Square” or “left-click” before the first attack is about to hit to perform a heavy timed strike.
