Batman Challenge Guide (Videos)





Basic Tips & Tricks for Combat Challenges:
- Most important thing is your Combo Counter, keep it high!
- Use a great variety of attacks and gadgets to receive bonus points
- Do not get hit for an entire round to get 500 points bonus
- If you keep your Combo Counter from Start to Finish you will receive 1000 per round
- Jump over enemies to avoid getting hit
- Use Stun attack, followed by normal hits to raise your combo quickly
- Normal Kills will give you 10 Points x Multiplier
- Special Kills will give you a lot more points, use them wisely!
- Ground Pound gives you 75 Points x Multiplier, use it always at the end of a round

Once I got my Free Flow combo up thats all I did - nothing but X and the occasional Y and walk off done. I used Y+B for armored and X+Y for those carrying doors + swords. Them out of the way led to a lot of combos without any hassle.

There are different types of Challenges.

-Ranked Challenges-
a) Combat Challenges = 12 Challenges = 36 Medals
b) Predator Challenges = 12 Challenges = 36 Medals

-Campaign Challenges-
This is simply a mix of the actual, above mentioned challenges. There are always 3 different challenges in a row and you have to get 3 medals in each section = 9 medals per challenge. Moreover, you are not allowed to fail more than 3 times.
There are 12 Campaign Challenges = 108 Medals

Anyone have a rough formula for how a Beatdown is scored? Is it just 10 * i * (mult + i - 1) summed over i strikes and mult is your multiplier going in? Also, is i a fixed value or dependent on the target?

I only have 9 medals left for the campaign as Batman - Ruthless Vengeance, my let down is Survival of the Fittest Extreme, I just cannot get the 60,000, I'm always about 3000 short, those damn titans, keep getting in my way building up a combo and not enough thugs. Watched the video, but sometimes keep messing up the ground take downs and beat downs. After 2 hours time to give up and play a new game. A day off from work and what I am doing!!!

I would love it if the AI responded for me the same way it does in any video I've ever seen on either Batman game.

That is so true. I follow the predator videos to the letter and it never works for me. Some guard won't go where he is supposed to and he ends up spotting me and killing me.

Most all of the challenges so far have been cake, especially the combat ones, but the extreme predator rooms have been a bitch so far. I'm having a lot of trouble with End of the Line Extreme. It's basically one shot and you're dead at that point too so there are no second chances.

I was wondering if anybody has any tips for Catwomen on the extreme predator challenges. Catwomen is at such a disadvantage in these challenges it's insane; less health and it's pretty two shots and you're dead, useless gadgets, can't effectively grapple to gargoyles, no real way to escape multiple gunmen. The only real advantage she has is the ability to walk on the ceiling of certain walkways and this isn't even possible or useful in all the maps. I'm stuck on two extreme maps, end of the line and top of the world, the former of which I believe to be impossible until proven otherwise.

This one took me a minute to maneuver. But I've found that if you swing up, disable the guy on the right's gun, swing to his gargoyle, disable the guy in the front's gun, then swing back and do the freeze/rec to set up the first two medals it makes dealing with the next part easier.

If you don't care about the beauty of variety and getting high into the ranked combat leaderboards - just make sure you get into FreeFlow Focus as fast as possible and then keep striking/countering anything in your path (don't use any special takedowns; it will cancel it).

It makes combat stupidly easy.

I was wondering the same thing. These challenges would be cake with smoke pellets like that. For me it's one and done. Unless I'm missing something.

That's really strange.
Other people asked me the same thing and I still didn't find out why I can throw infinite smoke bombs and you can't. For me it takes 10-15 seconds until they refill. I can only say that I bought all upgrades and finished all side missions. I'm having the current patch installed and don't use any cheats / mods.

Did you already buy all upgrades and do the side missions (also the AR Training?) And make sure you select the smoke bombs on your own (they are on the left side in the gadget menu). Hold down LB to aim and RT to throw them.

I'll start a new game on an other account to find out if it's related to any ingame progress or not. I'll let you know about my findings.

I have all riddler trophies and every side mission/ main story including calendar man and my smokes don't regen. I can only guess it has to do with the update

If you're having problem with the predetor master challenge use this video. I had the same problem it was the only thing I needed for pk 2.0 but got it earlier today. I kept failing the last map when I used some of the tricks in this video I completed it the first try with decent times on everymap. My advice is to save the free medal for the last map since its the easiest to mess up on imo.


Now if someone just could have put up videos with some tips and tricks of the last 4 catwoman extreme predetor challenges I would be happy :P. Im dreading them on campaign mode.

The campaigns are way harder than the challenges. Here are some of my notes to encourage yall.

7th Campaign Hostile Takeover. (extreme challenges)

*I used Medals 2 and 3 for less health and immunity aura for the first fight in Prison Riot Extreme. The immunity didnt make much difference because the stealth assassins are impossible to deal with anyways.
*Second challenge, police brutality maybe?, I used the first and fourth modifiers and got through on my second attempt. It is hard to do the ledge takedown. I have to stand on the floor at the bottom of the steps by the second dude you are supposed to silently takedown. Getting on the railing will not do the invert ledge takedown to me. The timer was not hard when I used the sonic boomerang to lure enemies into corners alone.
*The third one joker's fun house I used the last modifier, but if you have problems with either of the earlier maps use it there. The joker's fun house just takes practice and feeling confident enough to use the AA for dodging the one armed bandit.
