Detective Mode
An unique lens with which Batman can easily extract and analyze info from his surroundings. In this unique point of view (initiated voluntarily by pressing a button), opponents and interactable environments are highlighted in an orange color.
Use it to assess the hostile scenario: to find out just how numerous opponents there are, who is armed, who isn't really, and numerous additional precise information about your adversaries. As a smart individual once stated: understand thy opposing forces and you shall pwn.
If you're stuck somewhere, never forget to use Detective Mode to identify if a wall can be broken down, whether a switch is connected to a door, etc. You're Batman, so think like him!
