Robin Challenge Guide (Videos)

Here it is at long last! Robin's challenge guide! Before we get to the vids I have a few notes about Robin's gameplay.

Robin (at least in my own experience) seems to have problems with triple counters. Every time I've tried to manage one I've had a 10% success rate. I also discovered (after recording his combat challenges) that you can use his quickfire Snap Flash (+)in lieu of a counter (). I recorded myself playing Joker's Carnival with him and did it in that video around the 5:38 marker and right at the end of the vid.

With Robin's Lost City map, you will have a far greater rate of success on the Fire Extinguisher medal if you take out the two enemies with thermal scanners first.

I'm personally not a fan of the Freight Train map. I struggle with seeing who I'm targeting in the side scroller format. Some seem to like it, though.


Just like Nightwing, Robin has extra maps and they are listed in their respective categories. You will find them in the Downloaded Maps section of the game.


Moves List:

There are standard attacks for all characters (such as Special Combo Takedown) so this will only apply to moves specific to Robin.

Special Combo Staff Sweep: +
Special Combo Knockdown Throw: +
Combo Shuriken: Tap
Quickfire Explosive Gel: +
Quickfire Zip Kick: +
Quickfire Snap Flash: +
Quickfire Bullet Shield: +

Robin's campaigns are probably the biggest nuisance of his gameplay. These took me the longest to complete of everything.

Also like Nightwing, Robin has 13 campaigns.



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



Campaign 13 - Black Mask Campaign

Robin's gameplay is giving me a headache...I'm coming from Nightwing right now, and Robin is SO inferior. No ranged effectiveness whatsoever.

I was playing a lot with Nightwing before playing Robin, too and it was kind of a headache, but having adjusted I can say that while Robin doesn't quite have all the perks Nightwing does he's still a pretty good character.

I took first place with him on TOTW Extreme the other day and have significantly reduced the completion times on a lot of his pred maps. I'll be doing vid updates when possible.

I started playing as Robin after finishing Catwoman's medals, so he was a godsend compared to her. You're saying Nightwing plays Predator mode better than Robin? Now I'm looking forward to finishing up my last achievements. Thanks again for your guides.

I have two questions about the DLC:

How do I use Robin's snap flash? I equip it but there's no option to use it in predator mode. Even the LT+B quick fire doesn't seem to do anything.

And how does Nightwing's detective vision work?

Robin's Snap Flash is a little explosive you can plant on enemies & detonate whenever you want. You can sneak up & plant it on their backs or while they're stunned on the ground by hitting + when locked on.

Nightwing's detective vision is pretty much bare bones... you can just see enemies & it has a little radar in the upper right corner that shows when enemies are close (pretty useless).

Thanks!

So Snap Flash can only be used on an enemy? That explains why there was never an option to use it when I tried it - I was trying out all the gadgets in a quiet corner.

If you sneak up to an enemy, you can plant it on them with + or you can quickfire plant it on someone when in a tight spot with + (see my End of the Line Extreme vid). It can be detonated with + or +.

Thanks for the replies.

So, are you allowed to plant snap flashes on dead enemies?
