How many of you can actually finish Shock and Awe (Extreme)?
 
Like many of you, I was stuck on the Shock and Awe (Extreme) challenge map for ages. My problem wasn't getting the score, it was finishing within the given time. So many times I got to round 4 with ~30,000 points, only to fail because I couldn't finish it before the floor lit up. The only time I ever completed the map, I got all three medals.

So I am curious, how many of you can actually finish the dang thing, with or without a qualifying score?

I just finished it. The amount of freakin times i got over 30000 only to fuck up on 4th round i lost count.

Same as you except I still haven't passed it. I can't allow myself to give up though, I've made it this far dammit!

I beat it fairly quick the one I had the most trouble with was the Sewer Bat Extreme. But yeah it was tough beating all those dudes so fast.

HamKet 09-16-2009 03:20 PM

I'm wondering if it is even possible to finish it without a qualifying score, since the only way to actually finish rounds 3 and 4 within their times is to be practically flawless.

CX CH 09-16-2009 04:18 PM

Shock and awe was a bitch, like you HamKet i got to round 4 with like 29000 pts and then the game starts to rape me and I end up losing but after like a 100 times I got it:woop:

inert 09-16-2009 04:24 PM

Shock and Awe (Extreme) was the last challenge that I completed, being the toughest by far. It took me a dozen tries or so. Beating it was never a problem, but getting the score was. That particular challenge forces you to balance out your strategy.

You can either go for a long combo and run out of time, or go for quick takedowns and not get a high enough score. However, with the amount of enemies in the last wave, a perfect freeflow combo can net you lots of points. I managed 22,000 in the last round.

Oh yeah, throwing people over the railings is always fun. Worth some points too, although I never looked at how much. (Ring Out Bonus)

Multiplier X 25

I have only managed to finish it twice: first time with 28.3k, second with around 31.1k.

That last one was crazy. So, the timer hits 0 as I finish a quick takedown on a guy, and I still have 4 guys left. 2 of the guys are close to the edge and one hit ring-outs both of them. By now, I'm just mashing X to hit the other 2 guys. First one goes down after 2 hits and the second one goes down after 1 hit, just as the screen was about to turn completely black. They still gave me the win!!! I could swear the neighbors heard me whoop in joy.

Just have to beat the game in hard an I'm all set. Yay!

Check out this post for a video of someone using explosive gel

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...&postcount=123

It's not pretty, and it won't get you on the top of the leaderboards, but it works.

I did it on my first try using this method. I did rounds 1 and 2 without the gel, you just have to do well, I had 20000 points after round 2. Rounds 3 and 4 i used the gel to thin out the ranks at the beginning. Finished round 3 just as the screen faded to black. Try not to overuse the quick takedown since it eats so much clock

Check out my guide if you need help

Beat it and got my 1000/1000!!! That one wasn't as bad at the Jungle extreem though having to get 50K.

DeadSpace99 09-17-2009 12:06 AM

I know I beat it and actually got a decent score. I love doing takedowns on Victor Zsasz I laugh each time.

My Gamertag is Papa Skull 09-17-2009 12:06 AM

It was the funnest combat challenge up to date! :D

But seriously that challenge was simple. Just keep your combo up and keep on throwing the enemies off the edges. (Knives/Stun Batons)

I think I'm still in the Top 10 for that.. :D

Actual Jungle Extreme was very easy I got over 80,000 no glitch 100% legal and Sewer Bat Extreme is a joke only had to make sure to kick the guys that went for the gun now Shock and Awe Extreme is a pain but what you have to do is try to keep you combo up so you can keep using Takedowns and go for the Guys with knives fist with a takedown is an easy K.O. on them and for Points do a Ground Pound as many times as you can in a combo you get X 100. My best is over 55,000.

Donaldduck287 09-17-2009 04:28 AM

:D shock and awe extreme really trains you for the other combat challenges. I got 33000 on it and now I just need Rumble in the Jungle Extreme which is actually pretty easy because the stage is way bigger compared to shock and awe extreme oh and there's no time limit haha

ao33 09-17-2009 04:51 AM

I beat Shock and Awe in 20 minutes... took me at least 4.5 hours to beat Rumble in the Jungle though (with three "bat|" ranking I mean")

DaCameraMan 09-17-2009 05:02 AM

I finally finished shock and awe (extreme) yesterday. I came close twice with 3 medals, but ran out of time. I didn't quit till I got it. It was a pain. What I did was take down the baton and knife guys as soon as possible. Either throw there ass out or break there limbs. When round 2 starts I would advise using your Batclaw to the guys on the right. That is to keep that one clown for going for the weapon on the upper right level. Once that is done try to keep your combo up as best you can. Watch that right side because the henchmen still try to go for it in every round. What saved me was I kept throwing guys out of the ring or broke there limbs. Trust me you will do the same if you want to make it in time. To do that, keep your combo up. Now I have one more to go, Rumble in the Jungle (extreme) I was close, 46,050, but I know I will get it today. Good luck!

tattie 09-17-2009 10:41 PM

I only finished it like 5-10 times, and only once getting over 40k.

Once you perfect the first three rounds, it just a case of running the 4th and you will get it.

forum1983 09-18-2009 08:08 AM

OMG I am so glad I'm not the only one with this issue. I was playing it last night until 1 a.m. (I've most likely played that map at least 80 times) got so frustrated I put it away. So this afternoon I downloaded the new content to try out and when I had my fill of that I was thinking I would try the map again, first time I got gold and passed it. Up to that point I was lucky if I got silver and wasn't ever close to passing the 4th round before time ran out.

I just finished Sewer Bat (Extreme) and Rumble in the Jungle (Extreme), unlocked my Combat Gold and Perfect Knight! Now I'm 1000/1000!!!!!
:woop: :drunk

Reloaded 09-18-2009 12:06 PM

I didn't have any trouble with S&A Extreme I got the score needed in like 3 tries. Rumble in the Jungle took a little over an hour though.

TwinTipZ 09-20-2009 01:41 AM

I can't even finish Shock and Awe (extreme)... I found Rumble in the Jungle (extreme) very easy... You can get over 20k the first round easy (14k normal combat points, 5k perfect freeflow perfection, 1k perfect freeflow, 500 dark knight).

specVjavi 09-20-2009 02:59 AM

thats funny cause i actually had more trouble with rumble in the jungle extreme... that was the last challenge i needed to get 100%.

TwinTipZ 09-20-2009 03:03 AM

well i just finished and i'm glad. Shock and Awe was a bitch.

Taylorboy 09-20-2009 08:34 AM

I had a hard time with all the challenges until i realised about the Orange Counter and take downs Y + B. With that i managed to pass each extreme with slight ease.
IMO, it's all about how good you do in the first rounds.
Take Rumble in the jungle, If you can hit 20k in the first round and a good 10-20k in the second, then you can get it easy.

With Shock and Awe (extreme), grapple the tasers + knife guys (Jump out of the way before the tasers hit you), then simply get a combo of 5 and do a takedown on the knife guys or tasers. I also do this for the guys who get the guns.
Also a thing to note, if a guy goes for the gun leave him get it. He cant shoot you from that platform. Just keep a good eye on when he gets back. So keep hitting the regular goons until he drops then do an instant takedown.

Ziggy1911 09-20-2009 09:00 AM

Damn that level was a bitch. I thought the sewer was tough, but like the vid says. "shock & aw SHIT !!!"

I did notice that if used correctly, the explosive proximity gel worked well for me on round 3 & 4. Hope that helps someone.

Most Frantic 09-20-2009 03:24 PM

The first time I managed to finish round 4 I ended up with 29800 points.
I don't have to tell you how annoying that was.
But I didn't have too much trouble beating it again; I actually had more trouble on rumble in the jungle.

:O the exact same thing happened to me. I was looking at the score and i was releaved that i was about 500 points away then i did an instant takedown and i finished with 29600 odd and had 250 for the variation. Was not impressed :P. It is nice to have done it eventually though.

Jemocasa 09-20-2009 07:39 PM

It only took me 5 attempts to get the 3 medals on it, and I only failed to finish it in time once.

L0cke89 09-20-2009 08:18 PM

I got it a while back.

The moment I remeber was when I punched the last guy in round 4 with just over 30k screaming at the television only to notice a few moments later that I was still short about a few milliseconds.

In my opnion, if you know what to do and how to quickly beat down the enemies, this can be done in a few tries each time. But until you get there, it will a take a good chunk of your spare time ;p

the_b1ues 09-20-2009 08:23 PM

I did it i was so bad at the challenges then one night i just got the hang of it all of a sudden and did all the combat challenges in one night.
