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 (or aimed with +) will do a whip trip where she sweeps there legs out from under them. Using + is a quickfire disarm (or holding before pressing 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 () more than once on a shield will break your combo. You have to use the aerial assault combo . 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: +
Special Combo Whip Trip: +
Combo Whip Trip: Tap
Quickfire Bolas: +
Quickfire Whip Disarm: +
Quickfire Caltrops: +

Catwoman does not have a + 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.....


CAMPAIGN CHALLENGES

Campaign 1 - Search and Destroy


Campaign 2 - Street Justice


Campaign 3 - Offensive Maneuvers


Campaign 4 - City Invader


Campaign 5 - Midnight Assault


Campaign 6 - Hostile Takeover



Campaign 7 - Double Jeopardy



Campaign 8 - Ruthless Vengeance



Campaign 9 - Combat Expert


Campaign 10 - Predator Expert


Campaign 11 - Combat Master


Campaign 12 - Predator Master

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.

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

I have no problems with Combat on Batman or Catwoman.

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.

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

He was cool gadget-wise, but he seemed to "stop" when I used certain moves at certain times during Combat Challenges. It was weird and I was able to work around it, but it messed me up a couple of times.

Overall, though, I hated Catwoman. Predator Challenges were downright frustrating with her. While Nightwing's inclusion of too many "luck-based" objectives was annoying, it didn't beat how bad overall Catwoman was. Also, did anyone else feel like they were noticed more often as Catwoman over the other three?

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.

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!

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!

I updated Catwoman's TOTW Extreme with a guaranteed method to get the Caltrop trip medal. It's still a horrible run time, but less stress in that department.

Got my 1250 a couple of days ago. The videos were a huge help across all three DLC characters.
