"Batman: Arkham Asylum" is an action-adventure game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The Caped Crusader finds himself trapped in Arkham Asylum. Now he must navigate his way through nightmarish environments in an attempt to stop the Joker and reestablish order. You'll use several of the gadgets featured in Batman comics as well as some new gadgets that were created just for the game. Among Batman's assortment of gadgets is his exploding gel dispenser. Batman's exploding gel is a tool vital to your success. With the gel equipped, you'll be able to take out enemies, distract foes, and breakdown weak walls.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Equip Batman's exploding gel dispenser by pressing "Left" on the D-pad. This control works for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. You do not need an upgraded version to explode the gel from a distance.

  2. 2

    Point the exploding gel at the desired surface by pressing and holding "L1" on the PS3 or the left trigger on the Xbox 360. The gel can be sprayed on any flat service, but it will affect only those walls and floors that are weak and crumbling.

  3. 3

    Spray the exploding gel on the desired surface by pressing "R1" on the PS3 or the right trigger on the Xbox 360.

  4. 4

    Create distance by moving to a higher location or running to another area. You must be in the same room as the gel for it to detonate. If you leave the area, you will not be able to detonate the exploding gel.

  5. 5

    Ready the detonator by pressing and holding "L1" on the PS3 or the left trigger on the Xbox 360. Detonate the gel by pressing "R2" on the PS3 or the right bumper on the Xbox 360. The gel will explode as soon as the button is pressed.

Tips and warnings

  • Multiple gels can be applied at once.
  • Upgrades to the gel allow for automatic detonation or individual detonation of multiple gels.
