Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

Gold Revenge

Obtain all 72 medals on the original Arkham City ranked maps (as Batman)  

Perform well enough to unlock the Gold medal on all 24 Arkham City ranked maps as Batman. To unlock these maps, you will have to collect Riddler trophies during the main game. See "Genius" for more info on those.

There are twelve Combat challenges which are fairly easy. Focus more on keeping your flow going than throwing in a lot of variation. You're more likely to make a mistake trying to throw an explosive gel down than just using attacks, dodges and counters. When the titans show up, jump over them to confuse them for a few seconds. Against either of the twins, continually beat them and use Bat Swarm whenever possible to keep the other goons off you. You'll get your combo extremely high by the time they die and rack up the points.

The twelve Predator challenges are slightly more difficult. You'll have to perform three specific tasks in each map, all during the same attempt. Press  at any time to view their requirements. Not too many tips I can give for these, the videos in the link below do better justice than words can.

Click here for a complete video guide to these challenges.

Note: Because he was playing on Easy difficulty, PowerPyx had the ability to recharge his smoke pellets. If you're playing on a harder difficulty, you'll need to slightly alter your play style compared to what he does in some situations.

I've been making some combat videos for batman. Not all of the rooms are included but I give some great tips that can be used universally. - Prison Riot (Extreme) - Funhouse Brawl (Extreme) - Hell's Gate (Extreme)

Hope they help!

In this game, the stealth challenges are harder than the combat ones. I already got all 3 medals on every combat challenge map but am struggling with the extreme stealth challenges.

Is it just me or are the challenge maps easier in AC than AA, i only had to
replay a combat challenge twice, while 1 shoting the rest. And even halfway
through the stealth ones without a hitch.

Aside from a video, has anyone got any tips for Top Of The World (Extreme) Stealth challenge? I can get all three ?'s but always end up getting killed because my hiding places are compromised.

The combat challenges in this game are much easier then AA, but I think they still offer a nice difficulty curve. Hated having to do the Funhouse Brawl (Extreme) because of the two TITAN and Abramovich round. Still got it done though.

You're telling us you played through then entire storyline twice, found all 440 riddler grid items, and obtained every medal in 12 hours? You should have recorded it...most likely a world record.

@ #6
I find it easy to start off with 1 of the tasks as the first kill then go through and kill off another 2 henchmen to make it easier for the other 2 you have to do. Its not that hard but it can get annoying.

Anyone doing this, in the combat challenges use the a+x batsworm whenever possible you can get all the points needed in like the middle of the third round it makes it way easier

@#5 12 hours eh? Well, SweetBlackMagic was right, you should have definitely recorded it. Congrats anyways, you did the impossible. (literally, i'm pretty sure its impossible to do in 12 hours. but nice try.)

This is easier than the campaign challenges especially without the stupid modifiers

This is by far the most annoying achievement in this game.

some of the later extreme maps are brutal! I had to give this game a rest. I see that there are some that have done it and I my hat's off to them.

@5 what a load of crap. Probably takes more than 12 hours to beat the game twice, but then that still leaves riddler trophies, challenges and side quests. And even if you did it that fast you obviously weren't enjoying the game which was made to be enjoyed, not just sped through to get gamerscore like some crappy game.

@16 Then perhaps being a Doctor isn't your cup of tea, may I suggest trying a different construction worker, or dishwasher.

For the love of God I cannot seem to score on combat challenges, I love predator ones, got almost all medals now, but combat ones I barely can obtain 1 medal :(

having the one armed guys makes it so easy to score, punch them until the combo goes yellow, batswarm, rinse and repeat. once he's down you try to keep your combo going as long as possible, had mine over 80 a couple of times now and the score flies up, best so far is 132080.
also if you have a bad round or are left with only one guy, then you can get gadget variation bonus by going through as many gadget attacks as you can, i think the bonus can go as high as 5000.
also i think best to go for both variation bonus' in the first round as there usually isn't much chance to score big from the multiplier

These were the worst thing about Arkham Asylum only now there are four times as many. Plus as many again as DLC. What a fucking grind.

I can only get One medal! This is going to be almost impossible for me

I find the stealth ones much easier than the combat ones. Usually because i always use the gadgets in fighting i need to try and just punch and counter to keep a combo going.

Evade and Disarm and Destroy combo are key for combat challenges.

Instead of trying to use counter, double tap A to evade, after each attack, and keep using Disarm and Destroy whenever you can. I was getting nowhere but once I applied these tips everything became 100% easier.

My Tactic for The Abromovici twins is to electrocute them and don't get a combo until numbers are reduced
then begin attacking him but making sure you are aware of other enemies that may be lurking around
