Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

Gotham Base Jumper

Jump off the tallest building in Arkham City and glide for 1 minute without touching the ground  

You must climb the Wonder Tower during the main story, but you can return post-game to do this as well. Climb on top of the Wonder Tower, jump off and glide around for one minute. Power Grappling does not stop the glide, but you can simply hit the edge of the Restricted Zone to be turned around and push back up in the air to glide indefinitely.

@4 ditto. but knowing buildings might stop your flight might be kind of annoying.

its wonder tower where hugo strange is hiding out, if you notice the wonder tower are is completely walled off so it certainly wont be easy getting in and out of wonder tower. Maybe this is where you end the game capturing hugo strange

If you are having trouble getting this try going to the top where you can see two balconies that are pretty close to each other,you can go back and forth power grappling between the two.I found it to be alot easier than getting close to the minute time limit only to have him automatically grapple to the tower and having to start over again.

Alternating dive bomb and gliding while circling the tower makes it really easy.

I got it by grapnel boosting off one of the beams that extends out off the tower. It's not hard that way it's just that sometimes you get out of reach and you automatically grapple back up to the building. If you want to shave off about a second or two, glide from a bit higher up where there is a ledge and the dot of the green question mark is. Have fun with this (it only took me about thirty tries).

Thanks for the video #11!

I just have one question, how do you get down after getting it?

Comment #21 by goofydrip
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 03:43:16 PM

@20 you gotta climb back to the top and retrace your steps back down the subway and so forth.

1. Go to the wonder tower
2. Jump forward from the floor before going to the last elevator
3. Glide in circles around the tower doing Dive Bomb for 2 seconds and pull up and Glide to regain altitude.
4. Achivement unlocked.

@ #23 - You're complaining about how short and easy this game is yet you don't have two of the easiest achievements in the game. Good arguement...

@ #23- did you get all the achievements for the combat and stealth challenges too? with batman, catwoman, and robin? if so you must have a crazy amount of time on your hands or just be really good at the combat challenges. I find it hard to get 2 medals on a combat challenge let alone 3 and if you got all 3 on all combat challenges my hat is off to you sir.

You don't need to dive bomb to do this. Get up on the highest ledge before taking the elevator up to where strange is. Glide out towards the blimps and eventually the invisible wall will make you turn back, then turn back into it. rinse and repeat until this pops.

WTF? Everytime I get to the 55second mark Batman activates the grapnel gun and ruins the whole thing. Why is that happening?

@ SenorDingDong2k - the same thing keeps happening to me. I don't get it.

It's been patched. The "invisible wall" trick no longer works.

OK so what does work now?

Can confirm that the invisible wall trick does still work. Got this achievement a second ago using this method.
