In the latest Batman: Arkham Knight trailer, you might have seen a new gadget in play. This new Batman: Arkham Knight weapon is called the “Disruptor,” and lets Batman take on enemies from long range.
While it might look like a gun, it’s not one, so don’t expect to nail headshots and the like with it. Listed below are the its core abilities and weapon features.
The Disruptor has three charges per engagement, requiring Batman to carefully select how best to use each charge in order to compliment his plan of attack. The core abilities at Batman’s disposal out of the box are:
Jamming enemies weapons when they attempt to fire at Batman
Exploding enemy weapons (by using two charges on the same weapon)
Rigging weapon crates to shock enemies who try to arm themselves
Tagging vehicles with tracking devices for Batmobile pursuits
The Disruptor can be equipped with a long range scope, and as mentioned above, will jam enemy weapons to give Bats an advantage on the battlefield.
As expected, the weapon can be upgraded, with one such upgrade allowing Batman to hack and disrupt a Drone Tank’s turret.
Here’s a short clip of the Sniper Disruptor:
Batman: Arkham Knight is set to be out on June 23 for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
