Sometimes Gotham Knights is a shiny take on the open-world Gotham City, letting you live out your crime-fighting dreams as one of four caped crusaders. Other times, it throws you weird little research puzzles that can prove surprisingly frustrating. If you’re here, then you’ve probably found the latter to be true. Or, more specifically, you got stuck looking for bugs in the Penguin’s office at the end of Case File 2.1 – AKA Oswald Cobblepot.
Luckily, once you know where they are (and what you’re looking for), these bugs (or listening devices, as the game calls them) aren’t that hard to find.
What am I supposed to do in the Penguin’s office in Gotham Knights?
On your first visit to Oswald Cobblepot’s office in The Iceberg Lounge, you will unfortunately get virtually no information from the Penguin himself, and you will be forced to leave. However, after disrupting a few of Cobblepot’s criminal enterprises in the city, you’ll return to the Iceberg Lounge, and he’ll wave you over to deal with the bugging bugs around his office.
You will know this mission has started when the task in the upper left corner of the screen says “Locate and Destroy Bugs”. However, even when using your AR vision, these can be hard to find. That’s because bugs really only show up as tiny red squares, so small they’re easy to miss if you don’t know what you’re looking for, but we’ve got the three slots you need below. below.
Location of Listening Device #1
The first bug in Penguin’s office is located on the base of the table lamp on Oswald Cobblepot’s desk. Find the bug on the lamp using AR, then head to the lamp to interact with it, destroying the bug.
Location of Listening Device #2
The second bug in Penguin’s office is on the vase directly behind Cobblepot’s chair. The vase is next to a laptop, sitting in front of a table, and the listening device is at its base. As before, scan the listening device, then walk up to it and interact to smash the bug.
Location of Listening Device #3
The third bug in the Penguin’s office is located on Oswald Cobblepot’s bust of himself, found next to the doors you entered the room with. Scan the bug that’s on the bust, then walk up to it and interact to destroy the final bug. With all three destroyed, you can talk to Cobblepot, setting the next phase of the story in motion.
