Batman: Arkham Asylum is a action-adventure stealth video game based on the popular Batman franchise. It was developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos and WB Games in 2009 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows. Mark Hamill provided the voice of Joker in the game.

The game takes place on Arkham Island. It starts with Batman apprehending Joker and delivering him to the Asylum. With the help of Harley Quinn, Joker quickly takes control of the whole facility. With bombs scattered around the city, the Defender of Gotham must find a way to stop the Clown Prince of Crime's insane plan and deal with the released prisoners and supervillains before it's too late.

The following weapons were used in the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum:

Contents


Heckler & Koch G36KV

The guards at Arkham Asylum use Heckler & Koch G36Ks with G36C carry handles and aftermarket stocks as their main weapon. After the inmates are free they take these weapons from armories, and from guards they defeat. This weapon does not deliver as much damage as the shotgun, but its fast firing makes up for it.

Remington 870

The pistol-gripped Remington 870 shotgun is used mostly by the high security inmates that are seen with red outfits and they are stronger than the others. These are Arkham Asylum weapons, but the guards do not use it. It can deliver devastating damage to the player if there is a direct hit.

Desert Eagle

A Desert Eagle is the sidearm of Commissioner Gordon, but it is only seen in a shoulder holster.

Heckler & Koch USP

The Joker uses a Heckler & Koch USP in an unknown caliber to execute Batman in one of the Scarecrow-induced "nightmares".

Taurus Raging Bull

The Joker uses a Taurus Raging Bull when you play as him in the PS3 version. It holds only one shot, the trigger guard is large enough to have two of Joker's fingers in it at once, the barrel has a little blood on it, and the front sight is raised slightly.

M2 Flamethrower

One of the Riddler's puzzle solutions is to find the weapon of an obscure Batman villain, Firefly. While in the game artwork this is a fictional weapon, the weapon in the game itself is an M2 Flamethrower.

Auto Ordnance Thompson M1927

This semi-auto only M1927 Thompson can be seen in a display case at the Arkham Asylum Penitentiary. The displayed Tommy Gun belongs to Scarface, a puppet controlled by schizophrenic The Ventriloquist (Arnold Wesker), one of the supervillains in the comic series.
