Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

Mystery Stalker

Reveal the mystery watcher  

The Mystery Watcher appears at the locations below, which correspond to the numbers on the map. If you miss seeing him, you can return at any time to find him standing there - the achievement is not missable. If he is not there, try exiting and reloading the game. During the story, he only shows up in this specific order and you will need to speak with him at one to make him move to the next. Post-game, he will sort of be at all the locations at once and you can do them in any order.

  1. As soon as you leave the Courthouse for the first time, he is on the building across from you.
  2. After leaving the Steel Mill, he can be found at the top of the ferris wheel.
  3. Finishing up at Wonder City and exiting from the Subway you will be told to interrogate someone. During the cutscene the Mystery Watcher can be seen on the building opposite of you.
  4. Revisiting the GCPD for the second time he can be seen, again, on the building opposite from you.

After finding him at the four locations above, your map will open and you will need to enlarge and rotate the symbols to fit the four points you spoke with him at. Doing so will reveal the fifth location, marked with a "5" in the map. Head there to finish the quest (Watcher in the Wings).

This isn't a main story achievement, so you can bet against it being Strange related.

I say Batmite.

I have to disagree with this being about Hugo Strange as well.

The sign looks "mystical" and it isn't in the story related section of the achievements

It's not Deadeye, it is Azrael. Though I can't find all the things for this bastard, unless I have it already without knowing it.

It's Azrael. Scan all his locations and then solve his puzzle. You'll get it.

Gotta love how it shows you how to line up the symbols on the tile.

You'll need to find him 4 times, each time you'll get a symbol. After getting all 4, you'll have to match up the symbols on the map, leading to Azrael's final location nd your achievement.

Nevermind guys as my whole saved game got mysteriously wiped when I was up to
(spoiler) getting the cure from joker and now I have no desire to play the game
at all.

You can go back at any time to Azrael's location's to find him.
You don't have to wait until the end for him to return.
I walked out of the front door of the courthouse about 75% through the
story, and he was still sat on the roof opposite.

@32 how did you walk out the front door of the courthouse at 75% through story? on my play-through the front section of the courthouse exploded and now i can only access via the rear door..?
im only missing the encounter with the watcher opposite the courthouse, got all the others, searched everywhere local to courthouse and tried selecting the side mission in menu but still cant get him to show up. any suggestions..?

If you don't get the Catch achievement before you get this one you will have to start a new game or get the "Catch" achievement in the Game+
