Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum Achievements

Freeflow Combo 40

Complete a combo of 40 moves (any play mode)  

This is one of the hardest achievements to complete. You will need to string together a comb of 40 hits without being attacked from your enemies. You may find this a little easier with the weapon upgrades as you can pull off far stronger combos and raise your level faster.

Once you raise your combo level it will turn gold allowing you to pull off stronger hits. You will also be able to take longer breaks between combo attacks on enemies giving you time to think about each move you pull off.

While fighting with the Titans you can build up a high combo level while riding on their backs and hitting over Jokers men. Just take your time and practice.

See Freeflow Perfection for combo combination.

The closest I ever got was 39x combo thanks to riding a brute, then got hit immediately after. :-(

Easy as pie i got it during protect the batmobile objective. If you're not so good in countering, evade them.

You need to have enough enemies to get this achievement. It's actually harder on normal difficulty because the thugs die faster. You could do it in a combat challenge room but the easiest place would probably be during the "protect the batmobile" part on hard difficulty.

Also, avoid doing combo throws and combo takedowns; just focus on making every flow attack a critical and use evade to break up groups of enemies so you don't get surrounded.

Close to the end of the game, where you get the achievement "Party Pooper", there will me around 20 or more henchmen celebrating your arrival. Just knock all of them out. I got a combo of 61!

if you have already beaten the game i would highly recomment to go to downloadable content, where you can download a game type with endless waves of enemies

It's easy. Just go to the DLC's and do the arena one. jump over them when you get surrounded.

I got a 38 combo in the long fight after you shut off the pump generators. I hoppped on one of the brutes and swatted a whole bunch of enemies to get ~30, but I couldn't geget the last couple of hits without getting stomped by a brute :( I give up on these combat achievements :(

Protecting the batmobile is the best (and first I think) place to get this.

Start by grappling to the roof of the building on the left. Move to the corner so you can do an X takedown.

If I remember right, I targeted the fourth goon from the right. Don't RT and Y him as you still need him as fodder. This should also split them all up nicely. As soon as you land hit the three guys to the right of you're floored opponent (after the takedown you will be in automatic slo mo for the rest of the fight as long as you do not miss). Just follow the rules of fight club I have done on 'Combo hit 20'.

I did try to get this after climbing the elevator shaft for the first time.

As I said in the 'Combo 20' thread on hard mode each goon takes eight hits and this was the first time I saw five guys together.

A few dozen goes later I did it (what I thought) perfectly and only reached a thirty nine hit combo. Not to be phased I tried again. Twenty or so goes later.... another thirty nine combo hit. Joke. If anyone out there has got the elusive forty here I would really like to know if it was possible!

The easiest way to get the Freeflow combo 40 achievement and the Freeflow combo 20 achievement is to put the difficulty achievement on hard, wait till you get to the mansion and have to fight like 20 thugs at once. How I got it was to glide kick the first guy and then to just use my evade skill by pressing X twice and keep cycling between hitting a couple people and evading. I just kept dancing around the whole group till I hit combo X 40. This is also a good place to get your Freeflow perfection achievement.

Got it on the Heart of Darkness combat challenge on hard (one of the "Prey in the Darkness" Maps")

Get to the last round and use the Titan. If you get at least a x10 combo before getting on his back you should get this no problem. Lowest I got was a x46.

After months of other games (including Arkham City) I returned to this today, like 5 minutes ago, straight into the easy profile, 90 something percent, challenges, normal batman, not armoured, Sewer Bat Extreme, round 1 I got a 44 hit combo. Lasted the whole round. Like a boss. Or like a batman... PS. I got the GOTY version but posted here as well because this normal version seems more popular on the forums.

Oh, by the way, for anybody trying desperately to get this, and believe me, I've been there, (used to think this was one of the hardest achievements in the whole game), the trick is critical hits or whatever they're called. Instead of spamming "X", press "X" as you go along so it is easier to counter, evade and you'll get critical hits if you press as you go, so you really only need to get a 25 hit combo. (Starts at 6) I really can't stress this enough. AS YOU GO ALONG!

Batman AC is a much easier game I found... I went back to AA to pick up cheevos that i didnt get 1st time, and all I found was that going from Ac to AA is really hard. Havent got this one here but will be trying tonight.

Managed to get the achievement where you get the part pooper one. That seems to be the easiest spot.
