Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum Achievements


Take on a beast in hand to hand combat  

This achievement is missable within the story.

If you miss this achievement within the story mode you can play challenge mode to take on a Titan in the extreme combat challenges.

This is going to require some patience. Once you first encounter the Titans you need to defeat them using only your fists. If you use the Batarang you will void yourself of earning this achievement.

Once you start fighting the Titans make sure they run into each other and dodge out the way. Once a Titan is worn down enough and holding it's head start attacking. Make sure to evade side swipes, you may need to attempt this more than once. You don't need to kill both Titans just one.

to get this one you have to beat one of jokers' titans literally BY HAND! it's a pain i know but you can't use bat-a-rangs or any gadgets at all or you won't get this achievement

works best on the "newly improved titan." it's easiest done by consistently hitting once or twice then jumping over the titan as a back and forth motion (not on Bane), and if you're lucky you'll get it on the first try. there are videos on youtube that show you how to do it.

Just keep rolling, jump forward and get off a few punches, then jump away. Do NOT use any gadjets, otherwise you won't get the achievement.

Few tips. I tried this one on the challenge mode, the Rumble in the Jungle if I'm right. You wait for the last wave of bad guys, there is a single Titan.
Destroy all the little ones and there, try and do the achievement.

Method I used is dodge, constantly, for everything. Then, when he throws a body at you, you run toward him, and when he starts picking up one, you hit him. 3 times tops, and you dodge. This is not that long, and with the right timing, you won't get hit. And this is much easier than trying to get behind him. When you get a third of his health bar, he goes on the ground, and as you can't ride him, you will just keep hitting and hitting him until the end.

I had to replay this part in the game about 6 times. Just make em run into each other (or hit each other with bodies), get your shots in, and look for the halo of stars. Riding these beasts definitely makes the task less time consuming.

Do what #7 said, do challenge mode, Rumble in the Jungle, it's way easier than in story mode. On the last wave there will be one titan and a few henchmen. Take out all the henchmen, and when it's only the titan left, let him run, and when he stops, hit him two time in the back, then jump over him by double tapping "A", hit him two more times, jump over him again, until he is downed. Then just hit him like it's no tomorrow, and congrats, achievement unlocked =D

I got this one from the level that you find where joker is making the titan, and he injects the two henchmen. I just kept moving and had them run into each other went up and hit them. After the first one is beat you will get the achievement

or when there is two of them in the botanical gardens. When one charges position
yourself so he smashes into the other one.

I just got it in the pressure control junction, just after shutting off the pumps in the west and east control rooms. There's only one, so I just wasted the henchmen while avoiding him. When he was the only one left, I stood in front of the electric doors and let him run into them, then used him to punch down some of the next round. I actually found it easier than using the Batarang since I don't often get my dodging jump out in time.
Also, I didn't check to compare the name before, but now it's defined as "Defeat Titan henchman [sic] without using Batarangs (any play mode)". Dunno if it's tailored to what I did personally or what...

Can you get this one on the skeleton beasts during the final battle with scarecrow?? seems like it'd be a lot easier this way...

@18 don't think so as they only take one hit

got this on the pair of titan's after turning off the sewer pumps
use 1 titan to kill the other by riding him and then the other one
will be stunned too

not too hard on easy once i tried to do it
no bat-a-rangs but i can confirm using explosive gel doesn't void the achievement

I got this in story mode, super easy. Honestly, the batarangs didn't even do any damage & I died from trying to use them lol. Basically, you just gotta beat the crap out of them by hand! :)
-In the story, it's when you're in the Botanical Garden & after you save the two guards & enter the 'secret room' where Joker awaits with the beasts!
-Basically, just beat up a henchman, & when you see the stars above his head, get on him and "control" him to beat up the other henchman. Works like a charm!
-Once one is down, it's a lot easier to avoid impacts.
-Beat up the other henchman, & BAM! Free achievement. :)
DON'T USE ANY BATARANGS!!! That's basically the main thing.

I got this on Rumble in the Jungle on easy. Don't use batclaw or batarangs at all on the fourth round just in case you hit the Titan. I used evade for most of the round and let the big guy just run over all of the henchmen. Once all of the henchmen were knocked out, I used my explosive spray and then got the Titan to run over it. I had already unlocked the auto-proximity upgrade for the explosive spray, and as soon as the Titan detonated it he knelt down and was stunned. I just kept punching him and I beat him in just a few seconds.
