Huh, I will definitely have to try that, thank you good sir.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how/where to do the reverse ledge takedown on 'Police Brutality (extreme)'. Anyone know what to do? It's the last challenge medal I'm missing.

They need to be in a doorway. Best to do it right over one of the narrow doors as they are coming out.

EDIT: Regarding the combat guide, blade dodge counters are worth a base 100, and you are invincible while doing them. Very nice on rounds with late ninja adds for scoring.

Critical strikes are base 20 and beat down takedowns are base 50.

Not to be a sour puss, but where are the rest of the challenges? Most of the extreme challenges are missing. I'm stuck on the lost city (extreme) predator challenge and I could really use a video guide.

I'm stuck on Natural Selection Extreme. Can't get the damned Boom Box medal. So I agree, I could use some help on that one please.

When you first start off, walk out onto the gargoyle and freeze grenade the guard standing on the right of the elevator. Wait for the guard on the ring platform to start moving to the right (11 o'clock or so), then glide down behind him. You can now line up the zipline medal without getting shot (if you don't freeze the guy on the right he will shoot at you when you fire the perpendicular line at him). Immediately latch up to a gargoyle as you come off the second zipline.

For the remote baterang, you have to really boost the hell out of it because of the handrails. Pretty much from accross the map boosted most of the way.

After that just play it safe by using sonic baterangs and inverted takedowns.

Don't use the quick fire denotate, actually select the detonator and use LT RB.

To be clear, you're saying select the Explosive gel gadget and use it's secondary button to detonate the gel I place near the box? Because if so, I have every time. I jam the snipers rifle, let him see him, he tries to shoot me drops his gun and runs to the case and I detonate the gel. And no medal pops. So I guess the question is, do I have to place the gel in a very specific spot, or am I just timing it wrong? Do I have to do it before he grabs the weapon, after he grabs it, while he's grabbing it? I've done it like 3 or 4 times now and it just won't pop.

If you mean the mine detonator gadget I didn't know it could detonate the gel.

Maybe it just sucks. I had hell with it, tried getting him on the way, getting him with his hands in the box, and getting him coming out. The first time I did it without quickfiring it worked so I just assumed that was the problem.

It wouldn't be half bad except you only get two weapon disrupts.

I finally got it. The timing for it is a pain in the arse. Basically you have to detonate it the moment they put their hand in the box, before they've actually grabbed a weapon. Took me several tries to get it right. And then of course the firt time I got it right I got shot to death by the other guards, lol so I have to do it AGAIN. *sigh* well, it's done.

Thanks for this! I wonder if they are as hard as the ones in Arkham Asylum? Shock and Awe (extreme) was one of the toughest challenges ever

They are easier as Batman, but Catwoman gets quite a bit harder than shock and awe.

I'm sure you will be thrilled to know that it shows up twice on Campaigns. However, both times there is a free medal mutator so you can just use that to bypass boom box. I still find that map to be less of a pain than Top of the World extreme.

Turns out I didn't need the mutator either time, boom box is popping every time for me now, guess I'm just lucky. /shrug

Oh, I already did the first one in Campaign, and I used the mutator, didn't even bother to try it. lol.

And yes, I hate Top of The World. Extreme or not, it's just an annoying map, forget about the medals the map pisses me off.

I'm curious is Robin as difficult as Catwoman? I'm pulling out my hair just trying her extreme predators, they are insanely hard. At least 2x more difficult than batman.

Button mashing is the last thing you wanna do! Go about it tactically. Take out the guys who will give you trouble (shield, armor, etc) with your special moves. Concentrate and be patient and you'll be fine.

That said, some of them will infuriate you.

With Natural Selection (Extreme), for the medal Boom Box, where the bloody hell is the weapon crate? I know this is probably a stupid question but I do not know where it is.

There's one downstairs near where you start roughly (on the other side of a wall). The upstairs one is under the gargoyle facing along the bridge, near Freeze's armor.

Same here! i love the combat and the game but I have tried for hours to get all the medals in Arkham Asylum and only managed it on the first two. Predator Challenges are just about patience and no problem (for me), but if there is a secret other than "don't get hit" or "get better" I would love to know because I don't know what else to do.

Secondly with that about it really hinders my desire to get new characters like Robin/Nightwing/etc. because it seems the achievements will just be based on doing the challenges which I cannot fully complete, but for the achievements you have to get all the medals, but I want to get the characters because I love this game, and so on. It is a vicious cycle indeed.

Also, make sure that you're not trying to use it on the armored inmates, they can't be hurt by it.

you may want to point out that if you use all 5 gadgets in a round you get 2000 bonus points. this can be very helpful in the end, giving you a cumulative total of 8000 (in some cases saved my ass by putting my score over the edge to get 3 stars @ 4th round)

once you get the hang of all the gadgets it is very easy to get out of the way at the beginning of the round. (I could be wrong, but i dont believe you have to use all of them in one combo, just all in one round)

I would love it if the AI responded for me the same way it does in any video I've ever seen on either Batman game.

I did it off of one of those really tall towers by the steel mill. I was gliding over the water, doing a dive bomb/glide and I did the whole 250 without using grapnel boost. It wasn't that difficult once you figure out how to dive bomb then climb.

That is so true. I follow the predator videos to the letter and it never works for me. Some guard won't go where he is supposed to and he ends up spotting me and killing me.

Most all of the challenges so far have been cake, especially the combat ones, but the extreme predator rooms have been a bitch so far. I'm having a lot of trouble with End of the Line Extreme. It's basically one shot and you're dead at that point too so there are no second chances.

I was wondering if anybody has any tips for Catwomen on the extreme predator challenges. Catwomen is at such a disadvantage in these challenges it's insane; less health and it's pretty two shots and you're dead, useless gadgets, can't effectively grapple to gargoyles, no real way to escape multiple gunmen. The only real advantage she has is the ability to walk on the ceiling of certain walkways and this isn't even possible or useful in all the maps. I'm stuck on two extreme maps, end of the line and top of the world, the former of which I believe to be impossible until proven otherwise.

If you don't care about the beauty of variety and getting high into the ranked combat leaderboards - just make sure you get into FreeFlow Focus as fast as possible and then keep striking/countering anything in your path (don't use any special takedowns; it will cancel it).

It makes combat stupidly easy.

Thank's for this I have been trying to do the 2 glide challege's for quite some time. As it say's glide for so many meter's I thought dive bombing would cancel it out.
