Easter Eggs In Batman: Arkham Origins

 Batman: Arkham Origins

As you’d expect with a game that is as large as Arkham City and took so long to make, developer Rocksteady has packed the world of Gotham with many details. Among them are all kinds of hints and subtle secrets and hidden Easter Eggs for fun and devious players to discover.

Warning: THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Easter Egg #1: Harley Quinn Pregnant: In the Manager’s Office of Joker’s Steel Mill is a pregnancy test right beside Harley Quinn’s outfit from Arkham Asylum. The test reads positive, hinting that Harley may in fact be pregnant with Joker’s child, but in the DLC Harley Quinn’s Revenge, there are more pregnancy tests that read negative, excluding one positive sitting next to a box a label on it’s side reading, “May provide a false positive.” There is also a crib in the office that has the Scarface puppet in it, dressed as the Joker. Here, once again, is a test that states “May provide false positive.”

Easter Egg #2: Joker Singing “Only You”: After beating the game on any difficulty, a missed call from Joker plays. In it, the Clown Prince disturbingly sings Only You (And you alone) by The Platters.

Easter Egg #3: Harley Quinn Singing “Hush Little Baby”: After you beating the game on New Game Plus Mode, you can hear Harley Quinn singing a distorted version of the lullaby Hush Little Baby.

Easter Egg #4: Secret Coded Messages: After beating the game, using the Cryptographic Sequencer will reveal three seperate messages on three various signals and at the end a chime. These numbers can be deciphered with three different methods: The first can be heard on the broadcast 700.00 x, 500.00 y and reads “9 23 9 12 12 18 5 20 21 18 14 2 1 20 13 1 14″. It can be decoded via simple Caesarian Cipher, in which A=1, B=2, C=3, etc. The message reads “I will return, Batman.” The second can be heard on the broadcast 500.00 x, 900.00 y and reads “5 15 9 7 21 18 18 14 3 5 24 15 12 7 22 3 5 24 15 12 7 22 3 10 5 1 9 22 3 8 25 26 15 16 25 10 15 17 25″. It can be decoded in a Caesarian Shift, where the alphabet is shifter down, in this case Z=1, Y=2, X=3, etc. The message reads “You will pay for what you have done to me.” The third can be heard on the broadcast 200.00 x, 500.00 y and reads “3 20 26 18 26 16 24 1 11 4 24 9 3 8 5 2 12 18 6 16 7 11 3 10 17 5 13 4 21 8″. This is the most difficult to decode, and requires a keyword to translate. By using a Vigenere Cipher with the keyword “Scarecrow” the message will read “Fear will tear Gotham to shreads.”

Easter Egg #5: Killer Croc: After defeating Ra’s Al Ghul for the first time, you can find Killer Croc. This is the only opportunity to see him. Instead of following the current objective, go to the easternmost part of the Subway Maintnance Enterence. Once there, throw a Remote Control Batarang through a small hole in the bars and hit the button on the other side. Killer Croc jumps out of the floor, threatens Batman, and returns to the murk.
