    Sorry but I didn't mark every gold brick location. However, here are some tips to help you find them all.

    I would wait until after completing the story line so you have all of the Batman/Robin suits before you start finding these. Use my solution for finding the Gold Brick Finder (and it's always good to have the Stud Multiplier Red Bricks).

    Once you have that brick you're going to want to fly around Gotham and find all the red beams pointing in the sky. These will uncover the map and show you where the villians are. To find the heros you need a select amount of Gold Bricks and you can see the locations on Video Games Blogger. You're then going to want to find/buy the following characters:

    - Aquaman (can byspass a couple Hazard Suit Robin tasks)
    - Penguin (uses bombs much like Power Suit Batman)
    - Cyborg (uses magnets much like Magnet Suit Robin)
    - Lex Luther (can break black/purple blocks)
    - The Joker (usses electricity like Eletric Suit Batman | can open Joker boxes)
    - The Riddler (can open Riddler boxes)
    - The Flash (can bypass secuirty camera doors sometimes - thanks iSuzzyBunny!)
    - Black Canary (can bypass some Batsuit tasks - thanks iPhinnyy!)

    These characters will allow you to skip alot of climbing buildings with Batman/Robin in the required suits which will save you a ton of time. You will still need to scale a couple buildings for Acrobat / Hazard Suit Robin tasks. Aquaman can bypass the water-only tasks for Hazard Robin, but you will need Robin for a couple of the colored chemical tasks.

    Once you have this team built up you can scan Gotham (press Y on the map) and every little gold bleep is a brick. Sometimes the map will point to a Helicopter or Speed Boat that you will need to buy / ride to get the Gold Brick. The Red Brick will not "find" these (If you struggle with the helicopter ones, I recomend going there with one of the Lexcorp flying machines - they're much easier to navigate vertically).

    There's mini-games/rides/other tasks around Gotham (especially in the "Fun Park" area) that will pop out gold bricks once you've completed them.They all register as gold blimps on your map. There's also one for finishing the Bonus Level.

    Remember you pick some up in missions:
    You get gold bricks for completing the following in each level. This is another place the team comes into play. I recomend going into the second playthrough / free-play with the Minikit Finder, and Citizen Finder. Each task = 1 Gold Brick.

    - Completing the level
    - "Super-Hero" (collecting studs)
    - "Citizen In Peril"
    - Collecting 10 Minikit pieces

    PrimeBigTimeGreat guide, not sure why the negs. The key piece is knowing which characters to unlock to complete free play. Thanks for including that.

    DecadentBeaverWell, I have rescued all Citizens, Superhero every level, collected them all around Gotham and done all the vehicle races. I have 3 left for the Mini kits, but I'm at 246 gold bricks. I've even done the bonus level. I've scanned my map several times, and nothing is showing up. Anyone got a clue where I should look? I really want finish this game as I only have 5 achievements left to get.

    DecadentBeaverNevermind, I found the little blighter. It was hidden under another map marker icon. Remember to check under them icons just in case folks. Great help with this guide by the way.

    CndnVikingSorry but giving this thumbs down because a list of general tips doesn't really constitute a guide, and for somebody like me who seems to have inexplicably come up a couple short, and can't figure out why this doesn't really help.

    WeisGuy9Nice, thanks! Was going crazy looking for the last fucking brick. It was the one for completing the bonus level.

    CormacI had 248 when I'd finished all the levels with minikits and people in peril. They were in gate races on the vehicles I hadn't bought yet.

    Just need to figure out the riddle of Catwomans motorbike appearing and I'll have 100% completion.

    WeisGuy9The map marker shows it to be on top of a building, but it's not there. It's actually sitting on the ground in an alley just near that building.

    HolyHalfDeadAquaman can also be used instead of Robin's Hazard Suit to get underwater gold bricks.

    It also helps to unlock Mister Freeze to get the gold bricks that require Robin's Ice Suit.

    As NinjaDave04 points out, you must also ride the Polar Bear at the zoo.

    FemmeFatality13For anyone who may return to this game, or are just playing it now (because it does go on sale fairly often), if you find you are missing gold bricks, go to the Batcave and use the vehicle spawners to check if you have all the vehicles in each category. I was stuck at 249 FOREVER it felt like, and it turned out I was missing the micro whatever it’s called (it’s in the airplane group & it’s a jet pack type contraption). Once I located and purchased it, my last yellow dot finally appeared, allowing me to complete the race and get that last gold brick 😊
