When Kate took over for her cousin, she tried using Bruce's batarang, only to find that it didn't fly in the intended direction when she threw it. For that reason, she asked Luke Fox to make batarangs designed to work for her. The only noticable difference between the two designs are that Kate's are thicker and sharper.
During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Ray Palmer had requested to upgrade Kate's batarang. Kate reluctantly agreed and later Ray gave her a Batarang filled with compressed light energy from the A.T.O.M. Exosuit.
Needing practice in throwing, Ryan as Batwoman threw four batarangs at a member of the False Face Society; Luke reprimanded Ryan because each projectile is rather expensive and is at a limited supply. When Batwoman faced Victor Zsasz, Luke had not replenished the supply, but later, apologetically for how he was treating her, Luke presented Ryan, who promised to practice, with a batarang.
Ryan hoped to use a batarang as a way to gain the trust of Evan Blake when she wanted to enter an illegal auction; Blake admired the item and asked Wilder which of the Bat female vigilante was the original owner, to which Ryan said "Batwoman 2.0".
Batwoman used a batarang to stop Black Mask from killing Sophie; Sophie used the same batarang to free herself from her binding. During the fight between Batwoman and Black Mask, Sophie again used the batarang as a projectile and threw it into the gang leader's back to stop him when he threatened to shoot Batwoman. When he removed the projectile, Black Mask commented that he liked the balance of the batarang as a weapon.
