Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements


Find someone to play remote Batarang catch with   

You must throw the remote Batarang at the Mystery Watcher that you encounter multiple times in the game. This can be missed the first time through however it can still be done in New Game+ right from the start since you have all the gadgets. If you miss it both times then a new save will be required thus classifying this achievement as missable.

You can see the Catch achievement in the first 30 seconds of the Mystery Stalker video.

This could be a achievement with a second player i.e. multiplayer.

Or the same as the first game, and you throw it to yourself again..?

Unlikely to be a Co-Op achv as Rocksteady have said the game is SP only so most likely you have to throw it to another character who you can switch to & control to catch it!

@4 & 5: But, I could see them placing him in a room with you, after a cutscene or conversation, and giving you control while he stands nearby. You could toss it at his character model, which could automatically catch it. It'd be cool. That was the first thing I thought of. But, like everything else, I suppose we'll have to wait and see.

This achievement sounds like it could be fun as hell or a pain in the ass.

I'm gonna lean towards Catwoman since she is the only other Playable character in the main game.

You guys don't be so silly. You play as Batman, you meet up with his trusty companion BatDog, and play catch. Either that or you have to send a batarang to Catwoman in a two part mission

The mysterious stranger works. If you bump into him just quickly reload your checkpoint. I was suspecting it was him and got it on the ferris wheel as well. Not sure but other *unkillable characters may work.

The first place to get this achievement is right after saving catwoman from being sniped. Azrael is standing on the edge of the other building right outside where the bullet came from.

@15: Azrael was the violent batman in the comics, who replaced Bruce when Bane broke his back/spine.

To be precise he is on the roof located on the opposite building from the
entrance of the church after saving Catwoman next to a giant green riddle sign
when looking through detective mode from the roof of the church.

Just realized i got it wrong, i forgot what building you rescue Catwoman from
but its before entering the church.

yeah that sucks, i already beat that side mission to, is there anyone else to do it with?

Comment #22 by ChuckleheadOne
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 02:35:09 AM

@21 I think at that point you'll just have to start a new game and play up to the Catwoman rescue at least to get it.

Right after the first time you encounter the Joker you will come out of a cut-scene (you'll know its the right cutscene when Batman breaks a phone that was taped onto his chest. Get onto a roof and find the ferris wheel, it should be close. Find Azrael at the top, then throw a remote baterang at him. He'll catch it and the achievement will pop.

Go to the rooftop of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse (try and stay on the ground before you go up to the roof). Go to the front of it and walk all the way to the end of the flag pole. Look for the large Hotel sign and you will see just above it is the Stalker that has been following you. Throw a remote control batarang at him and he will catch it for the achievement

It doesn't seem like this is Jean Paul Valley the Azreal from the comics. If it was you would think Batman would have picked up on it to begin with.

Lol this was one of the first achievements I got. Totally by accident. I was just checking out his new gadgets, saw something cool. I went " Ooo whats this looks like sonic batarang" threw it before realising it was a remote control batarang, barely knew how to control it, saw a silhouette of a guy and aimed it at him. Bam achievement pops up. lol. Convenient accident much ? :P

@30 you dont have to restart the campaign the mystery stalker shows up at random places

Comment #33 by Beximus
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 08:21:48 AM

@27 & 28 - Your side missions carry over from the normal game into New Game +, so if you already completed it during the main game, Azrael won't be there.

Comment #34 by kushiel42
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 12:59:19 PM

#33 - That's not actually true. Every side mission resets when you start a New Game+, whether or not you completed it during your first playthrough. You'll need to complete all of them again to 100% the game, so you should have the chance to get this chievo during that NG+ playthrough.

i just thu it at myself

Comment #36 by kinomi
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 03:56:46 AM

Throwing it at yourself is simply a riddler challenge ... Azrael/Mysterious Watcher , as far as I can tell , is the only one you can do this with. And yes, if you've picked up the 4th symbol for his side quest , you have to wait for a new game or new game+ .

Comment #37 by Whammyaniac

Being the only missbale achievement, I focused on this first. Just throw a batarang at Azrael when you exit the courthouse. Not hard at all.

The final puzzle, the circles should be rotated/matched to the four locations where Azreal was found?

Honestly guys I was playing around with the remote batarang I threw it and made it circle around the area I was in and made it hit batmans face and I got the achievement lol

When you see the Mystery Watcher throw a remote batarang before you approach him and the achievement is yours :D
