You will be tasked with finding and defeating three different Man-Bats located in three different locations in Gotham City. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to find and defeat each Man-Bat:
- The first Man-Bat can be found at the Elliot Center in the Financial District. It will be located on the very top of the large building. To reach the location, you can either fast-travel to the nearby fast-travel point or use one of your heroes’ traversal abilities to reach the rooftop.
- The second Man-Bat can be found at Gotham City General Hospital in West End in New Gotham. Like the first Man-Bat, it will also be on the rooftop of the building. Use your map to find the location of the hospital and head to the rooftop to engage the Man-Bat in combat.
- The final Man-Bat can be found at Waynetech. It is located in the south of Lower Gotham. Look for a tall building in that area. Once you find the building, head to the rooftop to fight the Man-Bat.
This can be a task during main mission 8.1 Dangerous Skies or you can unlock the The Man-Bat Family achievement by defeating 10 Man-Bats in Gotham City. This achievement can be unlocked by completing the story and not starting New Game Plus but instead roaming the city. Each night you start has a chance to spawn one at each of the Man-bat location.

Man-Bat can be stunned by interacting with certain objects in the environment such as electric panels or explosive barrels.
