Easier Poison Ivy on Hard

So I was having trouble with this one on hard. I kept trying to fight the guys and kept being in the wrong place at the wrong time and couldn't get out of the way when the vines came up through the ground. This is what I did. Get past the first part of the fight like normal. Batarang the crap out of Ivy and watch out for her energy balls and vines. Next part of the fight. As soon as it starts, batarang like crazy and move up to the center, right in front of her. The guys will move in toward you. Spam Y and LT at the same time. This will counter their attacks and throw a batarang at Ivy to weaken her. Watch for the vines, when the one on the right(her left) starts to come up through the center roll to the right, and continue to spam LT to throw batarang and when guys make it to you start hitting Y again with LT. As soon as the vines leave go back to center like before. When she gets a little less than half health the guys will leave then you will have to avoid her energy balls and vines like the first part, but keep throwing the batarang. When she has a 1/4 of health the guys will return, simply do the same strategy you did with Y and LT. Soon she will have no health and the cutscene will happen. I know it's cheap, but effective.

Iv just started my Hard run through .. so if I have trouble with her when I come to this bit, I may try this out .. I pretty much did the same thing on Normal.

Most ppl forget you can Double Tap LT and it Rang hits the main target and not the goons lol I used all the time!

I beat it on Hard and didn't really have that much trouble with Ivy. The timing is very easy to figure out for the vines and the energy balls. Also, once the cages are lifted, run to them, and quickly attack the goons as soon as they jump out. 99% of the time you'll knock them off the platform.

great game, except for the ending and you never really get to fight Killer Croc

Going for the challenges now

I agree with stone devil, the timings for the boss fights are so easy to work out.

Just done it on normal, if you work out the timings and use the quick Batarangs then it should be easy, fight as normal and when you see the bush starting to develop just jump like mad away from them.

Thanks. This should help a lot of people struggling.

I didn't find it to be too hard tbh, completed it with one try.

I think it's generally best to avoid the henchmen rather than taking time to kill them. I did the bane fight without getting hit, just kept running away from the group of grunts and focused on the boss

All you need to do on Ivy hard is double tap A all the time, and figure out the timing for maximum damage when shes open the shield thing, its basically dodging arond the time when those balls are launched, not wait till they are airborne, and immidately hit LT

I nearly died fighting her on Easy, I'm pretty much screwed for Hard. I couldn't time dodging the poison orb things and hitting her when her shell-esque thing opened at nearly the same time.

Haven't done it on hard yet but on normal i dodged as soon as the orbs appeared, before they even launched and had no problems. I only got hit once because I got greedy with the 'rangs. Seems if you wait till the orbs launch to dodge you are already screwed.

Yah, the orbs aren't the hard part. It's the 5 or 6 guys that attack you while you are dodging the vines.

Ivy was way easier on hard for me, on normal took me 5 trys. On hard it took me two tries, beat first form in about 3min.

On normal I didn't die once. On hard I died like 4 times. The goons proceeded to kill me always near the end.

The advice for the second part was spot on. Just mash Y and LT and avoid the vines. Made it a piece of cake, didn't even get hit. Thanks.

I found you can knock the goons right off the edge if you attack them as they come up. It gets rid of them quickly so you can focus on Ivy.

Any tips on the timing of the vines at the beginning?

Not really. The only thing I can say is don't immediately roll away from the vines when you see them coming up where you are unless you can make it out of their way with one roll. It seems batman takes a sec to recover after a roll leaving you vulnerable. Instead get in the habbit of running for a sec or two then roll. This is also a good thing to do when titans charge toward you.

Old thread, but thought I'd add something. Don't try to kill any henchmen. Concentrate on avoiding taking damage (from vines by dodging out, & henchmen by countering). When you get a chance, quick-throw the batarang - she'll take damage even without the eye open.
