Before figuring out the best abilities and weapons, you should know what Robin's role in the team is. He is very stealthy and cunning, using takedowns and elemental attacks to his advantage. If you pick him, make sure you know that he is best played as a stealthy hero.

Luckily, as you level up, all of your other characters level too. This means that if you don't like how he plays at the start of the game, you can wait and try him out again later. Focus on what sets him apart, and work out how he will fit into your team composition.

Best Robin play style in Gotham Knights

To play Robin effectively, you want to make a big focus on stealth. Though his gear will follow the template set by other characters, most of his skills focus on deceptively taking down enemies from the shadows. He is quick and nimble, though his staff is a little slow in a fight.

He does have a skill tree focusing more on heavy and critical attacks, but this is true for all heroes, and probably not where you should focus your time or ability points.

With Robin, you should be focusing on pumping up his health and power stats. Stealth moves are powerful enough as is, meaning you should focus on surviving each encounter.

For this reason, you should invest in the Flash Forward Suit and Cutting Edge Bo Staff. They both focus on damage output and survivability.

Gotham Knights Robin best abilities

When planning out abilities, you should immediately put some points into the Shadow skill tree, buying Turnabout Takedown. This allows you to stealth strike larger enemies, making combat encounters much easier. From here, purchase Vantage Hanging Takedown, allowing you to hang enemies on vantage points. This means their allies won't find them, and lets you be a lot stealthier.

Once you have done this, place a few points into the Tinkering skill tree, allowing you to fight one-on-one more effectively. Sticky Pellets X3 is worth purchasing, granting you more firepower, as such landing more ranged damage.

Now that you know how to build out your Robin, you may be looking for something else to play. If so, check out our Genshin Impact tier list, AFK Arena tier list, and YuGiOh Master Duel deck tier list. There's so much to play here.
