For Gadget attack, these are the 5 attacks. They do not need to be in 1 combo, just during 1 enemy encounter. Also, I am not sure if they had to actually damage an enemy, as I got this achievement on my first try after I got the freeze gel.

Batarang (Tap LT)
Bat Gel (Hold LT+X, LT+X to detonate)
Grapple (LT+Y)
Electrical charge (LT+B)
Freeze blast (RT+RT)

Note: you will get the Electrical Charge the first time you go to Sionis Industries, and the Freeze blast after your final required visit to GCPD, and you start the game with the other 3.

Contract Terminated can be completed before post game.
I'm less than half way through the story the first time and I unlocked it already

Power Grappling doesn't stop gliding - but if you land or put your two feet down on the rod/cable it resets.
Yeah, thanks. I got it after I posted this. I knew to climb the Wonder Tower, but I was having issues with it resetting me after a certain elevation. But I figured out the technique.

Thanks again.

Great guide but you should make it for original 1000 instead of adding DLC to the main roadmap because catwoman dlc is free with new copies such as Alan Wake Signal DLC was. This way the people who didn't bought it new will understand your guide too, you can make a road map and guide for dlc at end.

PLUS PLZ MENTION THAT Perfect Knight Day 2 can be obtained without catwoman dlc or not? and are there any other achievements which we can't obtain without DLC?

I agree with the post above me even though the majority will buy it new it would be good to have brackets to just show the original 1000. Even though it probably won't affect it that much.

I suggest you put "Catch" into missable achievements, because you can complete "Mystery Stalker" before obtaining it and you're screwed.

Yep, thats what I had but I asked a mod for a stick and he said that some stuff needs to be polished namely that achievement. However it is indeed missable. It is best done on New Game Plus however it is possible to be completely oblivious to it and have to make a new save unlike any of the other achievements.

I have changed it back.

About to start the game today. Just wondering if "Catch" and "Mystery Stalker" are the only missable achievements? Also wondering around what part of the game is Mystery Stalker so I know to look at for it. Its it closer to the beginning? Thanks in advance.

20-25 hours? That's a bad guess.

EDIT: Oh, I see. You forgot you had to do the Combat and Campaign Challenges. Makes things a lot harder.

Hey great guide so far. iBuzz7s posted an earlier guide on how to get the story teller achievement. In case you missed it, basically you must talk to calendar man on 12 specific dates of the year. If you want to get it legitimately play it for a whole year, otherwise adjust your console date in the settings to the appropriate time as follows:

10/31/2011 - Halloween
11/24/2011 - Thanksgiving
12/25/2011 - Christmas
1/1/2012 - New Years Day
2/14/2012 - Valentines Day
3/17/2012 - St. Pattys Day
4/1/2012 - April Fools
5/8/2012 - Mothers Day
6/19/2012 - Fathers Day
7/4/2012 - Independence Day
8/16/2012 - Feast Day of St. Roch
9/5/2012 - Labor Day

I would have posted the video but it won't embed for some reason.

Someone mentioned that if you want to get the posted date for the achievement, pause the game after triggering the last conversation and connect to Xbox Live, the cheevo should pop during the conversation, but don't quote me on this because I have yet to get it.

Yeah, I had all that stuff but accidentally deleted it this morning. I will fix it shortly.

What if you don't know about the achievement and do all the Azrael encounters?

Then when you play New Game+ you still do all the encounters without doing the Catch achievement?

That would require a new save entirely thus it is classified as missable.

All the other miscellaneous achievements can be done at any time after to post game except for this one b/c it is dependent on a side mission.

I already added the info regarding Azrael in post game.

I was waiting till today to make an Achievement Guide but the new improvements are looking good. Besides, I don't have a capture card so I would be nabbing other people's videos.

Let me know if there are any areas that you would have written differently or if there is anything that you would like me to elaborate on.

I will be working on getting the rest of the videos done so the guide should be 100% complete by Friday.

I can confirm that you can do it out of order; you don't have to wait until New Game Plus if you miss the courthouse. I read this guide after that point, zipped up to the ferris wheel after the steel mill (missed a chance to get "Catch" here), and I then went back to the courthouse.

Stalker was not there when I first arrived, but I went in the door on the upper level of the outside front of the building and walked back out and he was there. Threw my batarang to get "Catch" and caught up on Symbol #1.

Great Guide.

I would have simply put a spoiler warning so that on some achievements that are story progression I can give some tips - boss fights strategies, trouble finding Penguin's airwave jammers, etc.

Mentioned that going up close to the giant green question mark will allow you to press A to interact as most people had trouble initiating the first save hostage achievement.

Also mentioned that Side Quests can be progressed through the main story and completed but would have encouraged to complete them after the main story concludes. This being there is a lot of experience to gain from doing the side quests and holding off from them would be a loss of XP.

Nothing more - as you have it it looks great. Making a detailed walk-through for the Riddler would be tough.

Only thing now is putting a description of saving each Hostage.
