If it's the same as the other games, it's when your hanging off the edge of a ledge or railing, and pull an enemy over the ledge/railing who is above you.

No,which you said is called a "Ledge takedown".The hints of the challenge says:"Performed while standing on a ledge with anenemy directly below".

Stand on a ledge, for example a railing, and you'll be prompted with the takedown button when the goon is beneath you.

0.28 in the video.

I was going to say you answered your own question, but then you said it's still not complete. I don't know how to do it then

are you sure its the hanging ledge you need to do cos i had trouble with that challenge but it was the vent takedown i got wrong because its has to be a vent not a grate and the reverse choke takedown is the hanging ledge takedown

I'm on the Deadshot bit myself and having the same problem. I figured out the vent, wall and corner takedown...where exactly on the map did you do the hanging ledge one? Thanks

I was also greatly agitated by this challenge and gave up. I kept trying ledge after ledge but let alone almost everytime they suddenly look up and see you, I never once was able to get the prompt... I'm almost convinced its an absolutely broken mechanic.

I can't help but agree. I know exactly what kind of takedown it is, in Arkham City you would often get to do this kind of takedown on a thug holding someone is a hostage (like on the top of Wonder Tower challenge map).

I found a room in the main story that seems perfect to do part 6 of Worst Nightmare (SPOILER: It's when you're going after the Joker and he's holding Harley "hostage" END SPOILER), it has walls to explode out, plenty of vents and of course corners. But no matter what I do I can't get the prompt to show up when I'm standing on a ledge above an enemy. I've tried several different ledges in the room, I've tried standing on top of the railing, standing behind the railing, crouching etc. Nothing. I thought maybe it requires some specific kind of edge where there is no railing, but there are a couple of those in this room too and still nothing.

Spoilers again.
Ok, I FINALLY got it to work. In the room I mentioned above (in Blackgate, when your return there) it is possible. Instead of trying it in the doorways of the little rooms around the edges or on people on the lowest floor, stand on the top most level and get a guy on the next level down. Basically stand outside the room where Harley is tied up.

Of course I still didn't finish the challenge because I had a corner takedown left and then the remaining three guys glitched. They started running to a guy I took down with a vent takedown and while two of them just stood there, completely oblivious to me, the other was running full pelt into a ladder. I had no choice but to take two of them down with a double takedown which caused the third guy to jump down and start running into the same ladder. Tried to punch him away but ended up knocking him out and it saved before I could reload. Eugh.

How to do a hanging ledge takeddown

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TvurdbjceM

That is how you do the hanging ledge takedown. I used that same map to do the other 3 takedowns and completed the challenge.

Thank you for this, I finally got it to work in the same room as you described. Very inconsistent to say the least.

Going through the game on playthrough 1 I had this challenge around the time of the "Black Mask" robbing the bank and what not. After the vault gets blown up you'll have to fight some goons. At least two of the goons that roam around the lower level walk directly under some wooden awnings that jut out of the stone balconies, which you can stand on and do the takedown from. There are also vents, grates, corners, and stone walls to get other takedowns.

I got a hanging ledge takedown in MP, but not how any of you describe.

I stood under a walkway, and grappled up to the walkway, holding RB so I was hanging on the ledge on the outside of the walkway. Then I did the takedown by pulling the guy over the ledge.

Find any platform and stand right before the ledge of it. You need to stand, you can't crouch nor being on the top of any railings (that will give you a reverse ledge takedown). Wait for someone to come beneath you and do the takedown.

What you did was a ledge takedown, yes, you were hanging, yes, you took an enemy down but you didn't do a "Hanging Ledge Takedown", you did a "Ledge Takedown".

A hanging ledge takedown must be performed from above the enemy as they walk below through a door way or other open feature.

This has been confirmed 100% already, if you pull the enemy over a ledge then this doesn't count as a hanging ledge takedown when going for your Dark Knight track.

Batman will wrap his feet around the thugs neck from above and choke the thug out if done correctly, if Batman does anything other than this then you aren't doing a hanging ledge takedown.

This is exactly correct. You must stand on an elevated surface with no railing do not crouch. You will be prompted with a silent takedown and choke the dude out with your legs. Best spot I have found is the 4 grated surfaces the flank the bridge inside the bank.

This Takedown is so inaccurate in it's name. They really need to revise and swap the Ledge Takedown titles.

-----

The way it's set up now:

For a Ledge Takedown, you're literally HANGING off a ledge - pulling someone off.

For a Hanging Ledge Takedown, you're perched ON TOP on the ledge - wait to drop down on someone to choke them out with your feet.

-----

They should have revised the names in this game, as they don't make sense and need to be switched as you can see by my examples above.

But fuck logic, right?

In this case they are naming the actual physical action and not the setup of the action.

So yeah no logic...

Even more BS is their hint for successfully completing it.

Eh, setup seems more logic than the actual takedown. But screw it!
