It's very weird. I assume you are pressing both buttons at the same time? Not one after the other...failing that maybe you could delete the DLC and download it again.

Wait how do you press both buttons at the same time, with one thumb?

Or do you have to take your left thumb and do it, I didn't think *+* meant simultaneously but one after the other. That isn't an easy move to execute because you stop moving about surely!!!

You should be able to do both at the same time with your right thumb, it's not too hard even if you press the top half of one and the lower half of the other for B+A. X+A is quite easy as you can cover both with the thumb. Give it a shot and I think you'll be fine.

Ok thanks for the tips it seems I need to get to a combo bonus of +12 or so before it kicks in, so just pressing the buttons beforehand did nothing. I didn't know that and thought the original post is really helpful, it doesn't mention it either.

Anyway thanks for your patience and help - much appreciated.

No worries mate, you can upgrade so you can do these after 5 combos, once you do that you shouldnt have too many problems.

Yeah I would just get the combo/critical strike upgrade. Once you hit x5 multipliers with that upgrade, you can use Nightwing's A+B takedown or the X+A multi-hit special move.

I used to have lots of trouble with the combat challenges as well, in terms of scoring. The best advice (and I can't remember if I read it here or not) I remember reading was to primarily focus on combo continuity versus variety.

As tempting as it is to want to throw in an explosive gel here or caltrops there, just having your multiplier in the 20s/30s/etc will rack up the points.

So that, and use evade when you're "stuck" in a sense - maybe you just finished a beatdown and because of the camera angle you aren't sure where the other enemies are, evade backwards to buy yourself a second or two to plan the next move. Hope this helps.

I really hate playing as nightwing... he's by far the hardest character of the lot, why all the stupid luck based predator challenges.
