Catwoman Challenge Guide (Videos)
 
Since there isn't a lot of Catwoman footage available online and a lot of people seem to be stuck with various parts of her challenges, I stayed up all night and made this video guide for all of you.

Here is a note on using Catwoman's whip in combat (and some predator situations):

The tricky part about Catwoman's whip is that it actually has two quickfire functions. Tapping http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/lt.png (or aimed with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/lt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/rt.png) will do a whip trip where she sweeps there legs out from under them. Using http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/lt.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/y.png is a quickfire disarm (or holding http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/lt.png before pressing http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/y.png for aimed attacks). So depending on who you are up against, it will have different results. An example is that you can't quickfire disarm a guy with a stun baton, but you can quickfire trip him.

And using her whip stun (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/b.png) more than once on a shield will break your combo. You have to use the aerial assault combo http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/b.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/a.pnghttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ges/misc/a.png. Also if a shield guy is next to an armor guy, more often than not you'll target the armor guy, so try to be aware of that or else you'll break your combo since aerial assault doesn't hurt armored thugs.

There are some vids in the campaign that show the exact errors I was talking about here.

Moves List:

Certain moves are standard for all characters (such as Special Combo Takedown) so this will be only moves specific to Catwoman.

Special Combo Whip Attack: :xbut:+:abut:
Special Combo Whip Trip: :bbut:+:abut:
Combo Whip Trip: Tap :ltbut:
Quickfire Bolas: :ltbut:+:xbut:
Quickfire Whip Disarm: :ltbut:+:ybut:
Quickfire Caltrops: :ltbut:+:bbut:

Catwoman does not have a :rtbut:+:rtbut: quickfire function.

They're here! The Campaign vids! These took some time to upload and may possibly have some sync issues, though all I've tested are good. So let me know if you notice any issues. I edited out restarts to save time.


It's always a good idea to plan your mutators accordingly. If possible, get the worse ones out of the way early and try to make the more difficult challenges a little easier. With that being said.....

Finally :) thank you so much :D

Drucifer82 11-06-2011 01:48 PM

You're welcome. It was a long and grueling process. My cap card is SD only, so while it looks decent on my monitor, playing was horrible. Oh, and ya know, these campaigns are murder, too. :D

snake2410 11-06-2011 03:35 PM

Awesome, working on these now. I got her pred master campaign done last night thankfully. It was tough.

Orrest92 11-06-2011 05:19 PM

Thanks so much man, im sure this took awhile. Greatly appreciated.

xXmyxxmastaXx 11-06-2011 07:34 PM

Thanks OP . when she does a ground takedown it looks like she is scratching their dick lol.
She is to goddamn sexy

demi 11-06-2011 09:32 PM

Good job bro. Will give them a whirl when I start Predator.

I have no problems with Combat on Batman or Catwoman.

Drucifer82 11-07-2011 01:24 AM

I should have the campaigns up by tomorrow. They are taking longer to upload than I thought. But considering they are 3 x the size of the other vids, I suppose I should have foreseen that.

FARPRO 11-07-2011 01:37 AM

Just got feline revenge today but these vidsaregoing to be great to remind me how to fly througgh the pred challenges. Cat woman is so tough to use on those. Hopefully robin and night wing are a bit smoother

Drucifer82 11-07-2011 01:51 AM

Nightwing is very fluid, he's an interesting hybrid of Batman and Catwoman.

McGoogles 11-07-2011 02:47 AM

For Top of the World Extreme, it seems as if you need to take down the enemy immediately after knocking them down with the caltrops. I had to restart several times because of it not registering.

Anyways, thanks for taking the time for the videos. It sure helped me.

You're welcome. And yes, if you don't get the takedown immediately, the Caltrop Trip medal will not register.

Drucifer82 11-07-2011 05:13 AM

I'm having problems getting Catwoman's Midnight Assault Campaign to upload. I'm running it through Adobe Media Encoder now to see if that will fix the issues.

EDIT: Just as I say that, YouTube finishes processing the vid. I'll hold on to the other one just in case. The last of the Campaign vids are uploading now and hopefully by tonight I'll be able to add the Campaign vids to the guide!

TheMarkOfPower 11-07-2011 06:03 AM

very good video guides man, helped me out with one challenge already, and im sure i will get the rest later using these. :Bounce:

TechnoViking813 11-07-2011 08:29 AM

I used these videos to help me on the catwoman Campaign Challenges. It would be nice to see videos like those above but for the Catwoman Campaigns only, but for now im not picky

The post below the current vids is reserved for Campaign. As soon as I have them all uploaded to YouTube, I will add them. They are taking a long time to upload because they are significantly larger files. While most of these vids average 5-7 minutes run time, campaign vids run 15-20 minutes each.

Very soon, friend! The last 3 are uploading right now!

Drucifer82 11-07-2011 05:33 PM

Campaign vids added :)

I can't get the Double Ledge Takedown medal on End of the Line Extreme. No matter how lightning-fast I press the Y button after "Double Ledge Takedown" appears, she ALWAYS grabs only one enemy. I just spent 6 hours doing this Map over and over and over again, and it just cannot be done. I have no idea how you got it to work, but it looks I'll forever be missing this one solitary medal.

If possible, wait until the thermal henchman is scanning the center gargoyle and the sniper is crossing the bridge. Then you'll have more time to do the double-takedown. You'll likely have to wait longer before the opportunity arises, but its easier to pull off that way.

Aquaman6686 11-10-2011 03:14 AM

Finally got it, completely by accident. All Challenge Maps complete, with all medals, as all four characters! Now its on to Campaigns.

Awesome video guide! Some were extremely helpful. Thank you very much... :woop:

You're welcome. I've also done one for Nightwing and will be doing one for Robin. For now I am working on making campaign vids for Batman to complete the Batman guide that Pyx started as well as assisting with polishing up the cheev guide.

ParoXysm QC 11-15-2011 11:36 PM

Oh my god, the predator challenges were so hard!
Way harder than the Batman challenges...
Thanks for the tips...

LordOdadjian 11-24-2011 02:07 AM

Just a tip, I think you should also include a note about Catwoman's special combo moves in the OP. For example, she has A+X and A+B special combo moves (whip lashing and whip trip). IMO, I've found A+X (whip lash) to be totally useless, but A+B (whip trip) is a god like move that lets you throw in ground pounds when you have a high combo.

More importantly, for whatever reason, Rocksteady decided to not give her a special combo Break/Disarm (X+Y) - I think it breaks your combo if you try to do it, but I'm not totally sure. It's really annyoing not being able to break the riot shields. You kill the guys with riot shields but some other guy just picks the shields back up.

Otherwise, great guide!

Yeah, only Batman can Disarm and Destroy. It's not just Catwoman who was excluded.

As far as her special combo moves go, they are required for her physical challenges in the main game. So anyone who's playing this game will know those by the time they get to Challenge mode.

I disagree with you on the uselessness of her special whip attack. As you can see in my vids, I use it a lot. I do it because it gives you a multiplier for each person it hits. So for example, if I hit 4 people with the whip attack and my multiplier is x50, then I get x50x4x50 because the value of the attack is 50 and I hit 4 people on a x50 combo.

Wait, there's an upper level on the Top Of The World map? *Headdesk* that would have made life so much easier!

Yes, there is lol. Don't feel bad, I don't think it's there in story mode. I happened upon it when I was completing Batman's challenges.

Karumph 11-26-2011 04:04 AM

Thank you very much for your guides. I never would have even tried for these achievements without them.

Drucifer82 11-26-2011 04:45 AM

You're very welcome. I've put a lot of hours into this game and it's predecessor. Guides for the DLC was the least I could do.
