Holy F*ckin F*ck!!! I can't believe I finally passed this shit!!! Its all about the timing of the critical strikes. I figured that out and racked up 54445 and 146 on the leaderboard. That is fuckin unbelievable for me. Its a total can do so just figure out the timing to get criticals every time and use throw outs or takedowns as soon as you can, just like everyone else has already said. Batclaw followed immediately by combo rangs is a great crowd clearer. Shock and awe extreme I never want to see you again!

I did Shock & Awe Extreme with 3 medals in seven attempts just now but for whatever reason I'm finding Shock & Awe more difficult! I just can't reach the 30,000 mark, I think it's because I takeout the enemies too quickly rather than stringing a nice varied combo.

I spent a few hours on shock & awe extreme last night ... oh my god!! Not since the days of early Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) & the SNES have i found something so infuriating!! I wanted to throw my pad at the screen! On my last try before bed i did it!!! Im so happy it was so close though!! the screen was pretty much black when batman was doin his slow mo ... dont even think i saw his fist connect lol. That is the ONLY time i have beaten the clock! Anyway im now part of the perfect night club!! Ive 1000K on Batman!

i can understand people finding shock and awe hard as there is a time limit... i still cant do it... but rumble in the jungle? im not great at the challenges but i did this easier than some of the normal challenges... The combo goes sky high on the back on a henchmen... just keep the combo going hitting every one in the way and hit the opposite henchmen and jump straight on his back after...

It took me many tries, but I beat it. Now that I have beaten it, I can do it without any problems. o_O Haha. Just be ready to counter the attacks.

It took me a surprisingly few amount of times, not because i'm amazing or anything, quite the contrary, it took me forever to get decent at the combat system. I got really lucky cause I managed to prevent any of the thugs from getting to the gun case, or even leaving the main rumbe area. Perhaps that's the trick...

I did all of the combat challenges this afternoon after completing the story on hard. I found it pretty easy after getting used to the timing of the comby system.
For Shock and Awe (Extreme) I needed only two tries but i spent over 2 hours to get 50k on Rumble in the Jungle (Extreme). Beside that map i expected the combat challenges way harder after reading all the posts here.

Most important thing to rule the combat challenges: Don't spam X.

Now im going for the predator challenges - awesome game.

I managed to get them after what felt like an obscene number of attempts and time, but actually really wasn't. As stated before, just get a really good score for Round 1, a decent score for Round 2, and focus on surviving and quick elimination for Rounds 3 & 4, particularly Round 4. Same holds true for RITH(E), just without the focus on quick eliminations since there's no time limit to worry about. Get a highish multiplier before mounting the first Titan, continue the combo when you're thrown off and making your way to the second. Rinse and repeat.

YES! Just done it! I'd got the points and run out of time about 10 times, just finished it with 30020 points! Last hit was well after the time as well! To everyone still struggling just stick with it, I was close to giving up after a few tries but got it eventually. My main strategy was just to use my instant takedowns as soon as possible of enemies with knives/stun rods. Now onto the stealth challenges!

I just got passed the challeged a little while ago. It is easy to get 30,000 points, the hard part is surviving the 4th round. My advice for the 4th round is this: Don't start out with a batclaw, don't aim for points (You should have all the metals by now, your object is to survive), don't waste time with gun lockers they will have to come down to get you, and finally, use instant takedowns on guys with batons and knives the second you get them.

If you pass round 4 you will probaley be a second away from failure, that is how close it is.

Yahoo!!! Just managed to get it. I was able to get 30K but just could never finish in time.

Also I just stayed in the starting area and Batclawed the goons at the start (assuming the electric poker guy is far away) and then Batarang'd the other goons - so with a few of them down it was easier to focus on bashing the regular goons and save a special move for the knife bastards and the electric poker guys.
I will not be coming back to this challenge anytime soon.

Congratulations. Whenever I tried batclawing those guys, the stun baton thug always gets to tase me whenever I pull him in. So I never resorted to that.

i just finished it and earned the perfect knight achievement. i saved S&A:E for last since everyone said it was by far the hardest, but i didnt have as much trouble as i thought i would have. i was somehow able to get 21,000 on the second round alone and got 9,000 on the first round, so i was able to just focus on killing and not worry about getting a higher combo or variation bonus in the last 2 rounds.

all i did for the 3rd and 4th round was punch none stop. when i saw a (spidey sense) i pressed and when i saw a red spidey sense i evaded . as soon as i got a combo of 5, i used it on the stunners/knivers. when i had time i used the batclaw and/or ground takedown. the batarang is actually quite useful to down 3 guys very quickly without becoming vulnerable for too long.

This was my last one, and i couldn't finishe roudn 3 for ages. Then i got that down to an art. then i couldn't beat round 4 within the time.

Then i finally did it and got 28k then again with 27 k

alot more grinding of the level later i finally got it, 49k and top 600 on the ladder

--
i will point out when i started the challenges i could barely get 6k on thefirst map

just keep practicing guys and you'll get it eventually. The most important tips for that level are use critical hits and throw as many people off the side as possible starting with the knife and taser guys. Also jump over and critical hit taser guys to make them drop their weapon and cape and critical hit knife guys when needed

most important, slow down, relax and take your time. believe it or not there is plenty of time. its when you rush and make mistakes when it runs out far too fast

Thanks for the congrats dude. I actually tried it again for laugh and I only made it to round 3.
What I meant to say was Batclaw the knife dudes and batarang the electric taser dudes.

If your serious about your edit you might want to spell check and sort out the grammar in your own post. I personally don't care how i type on message boards as long as the meaning gets across. just thought i would point that out

That is an amazing score.
Question: when an enemy is dazed and laying on the ground, how does one jump all the way accross the screen and land on the dazed enemy to peform a ground takedown?

Same as you'd do a regular takedown...RT+Y. You just have to make sure you're "aiming" in the right direction, and generally Bats only leaps great distances if there is nothing between him and the victim.

after getting frustrated for what seemed like 4 hours. i finally managed to beat this map. and yea what you have to do is throw as many people as you can off the side, and make sure that you keep the combo going, and lastly don't let them hit you once. it takes some practice but eventually it will be really easy.

See, I try that and I end up losing out on my combos. I just beat the game on normal mode yesterday however. I've got an amazing 1 bat trophy for intensive care, yes I know I'm pro.
