Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

AR Knight

Complete all augmented reality training exercises  

Complete all eight AR Training exercises to unlock the achievement. The first four unlock on your way to the Steel Mill for the first time, and completing them unlocks the grapnel boost upgrade which allows you to glide indefinitely by grappling from building to building without ever touching the ground. The trick to the advanced exercises is to time your dives properly. Stopping the dive early by letting go of the trigger and barely pulling back helps make it through the tight corridors. The video below contains all the exercises.

Training missions aren't usually any hassle so this should be fine. hopefully this one will actually be able to teach you something that isn't obvious.

Just got this and it's kind of a pain. Give yourself a couple hours or so and maybe pour a drink. Lots of sadistic meshes to collide against.

The AR missions aren't hard but I've yet to perfect the dive bomb; keep touching the floor.

@#11, You just did the 4 Seesions by the Cranes in the water and it popped? I did those 4 and received the Grapnel Gun, but I didn't get the achievement. This is disappointing. neo

You have to do the advanced ones as well.

Easy achievment hardest being advanced 1 but no big thing!

11 is just talking about the basic ones. It would take 30 minutes just to transit between the advanced ones.

Hate these. Some of them are so frustrating!

Let go of the trigger at the end of your dive (continue holding A) and don't hit anything else and Batman should
level himself out and you can easily steer him through the last 2 rings on a few of these.

It also helps to mute the game when attempting.

The advanced AR near the courthouse you can dive bomb the firat 2 then use your grappel hook the fly up and spin around to get then next 2 instead on trying to
turn in your dive bomb

Got it, only hard one was the one that required me to glide consistently through a tunnel near joker's territory. Only advice I can say is practice, also after you hit the 3rd ring stop diving and glide neutrally(don't use the thumb-sticks). After hitting the 4th ring pull up during the whole time in the tunnel.

I don't know about anyone else, but that first advanced one near the Joker stuff was a pain in the @$$!

Holy shit finally got it, but I had more fun getting my last root canal!
#19 has it right, let go of RT as soon as you go through the 3rd ring,
that will at least get you in the tunnel every time. From then on it
just takes patience and about 50 tries lol

I hate these kind of achievements. I think I tried dozens of time, but finally I just gave up. I can find hidden items but flying...that I cannot do.

Definately the two advanced ones that have the low tunnels - one off the crane and the other near Joker's place .. were absolute nightmare. Kept catching on tiny bits of stuff near the entrance/ceiling.. The advice to let go of RT just after the third on the Joker one helped hugely, thankyou!

This achievement is glitched for me on the PC version, I've "unlocked" it three times, but wont show on

Thanks again to #21, after watching that I got three of the four advanced ones within 10 minutes. I found the trick was to just let go of RT and only do very minor tap corrections, otherwise you're straight into a wall or ceiling.

Also the rings are where they are for a reason; they mark when to let go, and if you do that you should get it in a few tries.

For the one by the courthouse I didn't bother with doing the rings in one go, just dived, grappel boosted clear, and then came back for the next one, took one attempt this way.

I camt even start the first one

Friday, January 13, 2012 @ 07:53:12 PM

I dont get it

I completed the game on normal but it wont give me the icon to start the training. I went on Newgame+ and i did it right away and i completed that, got the cheevo. Then I went back to the first game and there is still no icon where the training begins and my stats are still stuck on 91%.

Did I just fuck up my game?

Does anyone know if you are supposed to get an equipment upgrade once you've done the second set?

having some major difficulty with these, got the first four and the one near joker's hideout of the advanced, can't seem to do the other ones for some reason.

Holy bajeezuz that was a pain in the arse......Especially the one with the fun-house tunnel.

Sunday, May 13, 2012 @ 04:14:56 PM

I got it, Advanced AR 1 is a pain but the key to getting these is making sure you can line up with the markers and then work on the timing. Once you get Advanced AR 1 the others aren't so bad.

The advanced ones are a pain in the arse-you never need to do shit like that whilst doing the story so what is the point? Anyone?
