Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City Achievements

50x Combo

Complete a combo of 50 moves (any play mode, any character)  

This achievement can be done at many different times throughout the game but is easiest done during a sequence like the one in the video below. It is best to get the FreeFlow Focus Combat upgrade to increase movement speed and reaction times as well as the Critical Strikes upgrade that increases the combo by x2 for each successful hit.

This one took me an embarrassingly long time to get in the first game. -:/ Many, many reloads outside the elevators, trying to get a good run riding the titan-enhanced thugs. I may have screamed once or twice. -:/ Here we go again.

By the sounds of it this sounds easy for Catwoman, as apparently she is a lot faster than batman :S

I got it numerous times in the original the evade(A,A) was helpful for keeping the combos going

also it's only 5g suggesting that it may not be THAT hard?

This is gonna be so easy especially on challenge maps. Seriously people get like
80+ combos on the Arkham Asylum maps so this should hopefully be the same

Also the fights in the main game itself are going to be massive. Just look at the fight you have in the iceberg lounge. As long as you get the combat down you should have no problem with this.

I preordered the Collector's Ed of Arkham Asylum and got a massive combo on the Crime Alley map that came with it. Hopefully, since I'm preordering City Collector's, there will be another easy map to get it on :P

Hopefully when you counter two people at once, it counts as a double move (i.e. +2 to the multiplier) and not a single awesome move. With Batman's new moves and gadget inclusion, it might be a bit easier this time around.

The funny thing is that I found this one hard in the first game but after I did it the first time, I did it many more times with ease. lol

After giving up on trying to get the one in Batman: AA until a few weeks ago, I'm really not looking forward to this again! Loved the game (and have this one preordered) but I am so crap at building up combos. Looks like I can say goodbye to the combat medals this time around too!

This achievement was extremely easy. Most of you who are thinking the worst already will probably do this without even thinking of it.

Wow ridiculously easy... anyone having trouble with it can try carnival challenge map pack(dlc) it has infinite amounts of people

After getting the upgrade that makes all critical strikes count for 2, getting at least 50 becomes very easy.

Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 12:03:53 PM

It was a pain to get in rhe first game, but then you did get more achievement points now its only 5G so i,m geussing its much easier this time around. I loved AA, i not got this one yet but i hear its alot more open world now then AA was. That should be great then.

Comment #23 by JustRomanAround
Sunday, October 23, 2011 @ 06:37:32 AM

Hmm, finding this a lot harder than i did in Asylum - currently my highest is 37 and I am 70% of the way through the game! it's harder now that bad guys have shields and body armour.

Just got it and lemme tell you, I was a big noob when it came to combat in AA though somehow, I have been doing pretty good in this game. Yes, with the critical hits upgrade you basically have to do only 30x combo to get till 50. (IIRC, with critical hits, you have to carry it till 5x and if you continue to time it right, you get +2x for every single hit.)

Comment #25 by stone5against1
Sunday, October 23, 2011 @ 11:34:51 AM

I didn't even have to try for this one.. Got it in the first fight against Clayface when you get the sword.. hit like 70+ times, just mashing the X button
There's lots of areas with a lot of easy unarmed enemies, should be easy enough to get if you don't bother with finishing blows, and just concentrate on hitting and countering

Comment #26 by asylumspadez
Sunday, October 23, 2011 @ 05:49:44 PM

Actually isnt that hard, I have gotten to 35-45 numerous times. I havent even tried getting it, I have been far too focused on the 400 riddler challenges.

Comment #27 by Weirdy Beardie
Monday, October 24, 2011 @ 05:17:22 AM

This popped for me during the Mad Hatter side mission - infinite unarmed bad guys, if you've got the freeflow focus upgrades this should be do-able.

Comment #28 by asylumspadez
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 07:23:08 PM

Pretty easy, Did it during the combat challenges. The highest I got was to 63. A good tip is to double tap the A button to evade people, this helps you avoid enemies and keep your combo going

If anyone is really struggling you could get it easily with the

This achievement is gay I got a 49 combo no lie on a challenge map and then I beat it before I could get 50. Bull$#*!

Comment #31 by IN5PE
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 03:03:10 PM

I got this in Mad Hatters side mission. Just get the freeflow going and be ready tyto counter when needed

Comment #32 by Bhova88
Monday, October 31, 2011 @ 07:38:42 AM

Pretty simple, with free flow focus you should be able to achieve combos in excess of 50 pretty easily. If having your having trouble, two things I can recommend.

1. Remember 1 button push equals one move, and try to establish a rhythm. If you aren't good with the automatic takedowns/weapon breaking or dodging pick a challenge level with no weapons. If you go in button mashing, your combo will fail.

2. One of the extreme challenges has two titan henchmen on the third stage (it's the one that's in the same location you fought Joker. Do the titan takedown (B,B,B) and ride the henchman around hitting people, should get to 50 pretty quickly.

I found a glitch on accident for this if any of you need some help on this. I will try to explain this the best I can.

You know in the Steel Mill in the Assembly Line room where you solve the Riddle about the two caged brothers? Well that is where you need to be. You throw a Freeze Blast and Freeze Mine right onto the fence where the brothers are sitting at. It should blow up and cause them to stand up. Once one of the brothers stands up you can spam combos on it through the fence until you get to 50. This is how I did it stumbled upon this on accident LOL.

I tried your method and it worked, but there is a definite trick to it and you can also risk losing the brothers forever if you're not careful.

Luckily I had Story and Story Plus completed before I tried this. I went back to the Steel Mill on Story and found the brothers and tried the technique. He's right, you just spam ice grenades and freeze blasts, then you can start walloping the brothers.

Batman would do a large combo getting me up to the mid 20's and would keep finishing with a giant kick. After the kick I could no longer hit the brothers. Both become untouchable and I left the area to try to reload them. When I did this and returned, the brothers were gone permanently. I tried quiting and reloading, going to dashboard, and reloading, but they booked it.

I retried on

Comment #35 by uppyb0t
Sunday, November 06, 2011 @ 12:49:42 PM

I retried on Story Plus and found that it autosaves once you're coming up to the area, which is also useful if it fails on you. I tried again and found that you need to punch the right one from the left so it will push him into the rightside wall. Then it traps him there and Batman will punch up a storm. I got him to 49 and Batman slowed up, I thought I had lost it for sure, but then he finished it off with a slowmow kick and ended the combo at 50.

Ding ding.

If you miss the combo, instantly quit and reload your Story. It will start you within the Steel Mill extremely close to where they are and you can try again. If you leave the area and it autosaves, you've lost them forever.

I found this achievement rather easy as my 2 highest combos are 94 and 103.

Comment #37 by MM2313
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 05:19:48 PM

This was a really easy achievement to earn. I earned this one while going after the Ghost Train achievement on my very first playthrough, which was now as of this writing. I just stayed focused and kept on hitting guys, one after the next, and quickly moved around the room as fast as I could. Once I reached fifty hits, the achievement forever became mine!

It should have been more than 5G!

Comment #39 by Knaussenheimer

I finally got this after many many tries and I did it as nightwing on the iceberg lounge VIP challenge WITHOUT USING CRITICAL STRIKES!

i found this achievement fairly easy. just go to the iceberg lounge get to the 4th round
and jump over everyone and punch easy as that

105 hit combo

Comment #42 by Whammyaniac
Saturday, December 03, 2011 @ 07:41:51 AM

I got this in the courthouse after I finished the game. There's a whole bunch of unarmed goons (GOONS! :D) in an open space. Do what the video shows: get in a hit (2 if you're feeling lucky), and then immediately evade. Repeat until you get to 50. You don't even really need to counter (although I did), since evade negates the need.
Leave the brothers alone, they ain't hurting anyone anymore! =P

I think this achievement should've been worth 20G.

I feel like the 100% achievement will be easier than this one. I am terrible timing my attacks and stuff, I just mash X :(

You can make it a lot more difficult by just using Meele attacks(thats swipe and beatdown only), which I did and I am really proud of myself...

5G only for this achievement? It should be at least 50.

Comment #47 by cjdavies
Tuesday, December 27, 2011 @ 02:50:24 PM

The most I have had so far:
Batman - 13
Catwoman - 38

I know who I'm using to get this.

Comment #48 by pillowpxnts
Wednesday, December 28, 2011 @ 11:24:39 AM

This cheevo is easy. Playing as Batman, select ranked challenge 2 - 'Survival of the Fittest.' Get to round 4, and use the evade technique (A,A) and do one punch ONLY. Only one. Patience is key. Evade, punch, repeat. Continue until you hit 50.

Also you can use the modifiers so that way shield guys wont bash your face in and cattle prod dudes wont break your chain whe you attack.

Is there more than one way to get it other than the Mad Hatter level?

Comment #52 by L Invictus
Sunday, January 22, 2012 @ 12:06:41 AM

I popped the game in and got it today. It was my first achievement, and one that I was pretty happy about. I got it with Night Wing on the Wayne Manor Challenge Map - which I think is a pretty good character and place to rack up this achievement, as long as you put as much focus on avoiding getting hit, as you do landing them, if not more.

catwomans much easier to use....did it on a challenge with a 54 combo...first time ever over a 33...

do it on the second combat challange and use catwoman, she's very swift

If you haven't gotten this yet, I suggest Harley Quinn's revenge at the end when you fight the room full of robots. The robots are slow and all said and done my combo was 85x. Just be sure to watch out for her sniper (red beam).

Comment #60 by faxanadonts
Thursday, October 31, 2013 @ 12:59:57 PM

I found getting to 50 was a lot easier if I always used evade (double tap A) inbetween attacks (X) instead of trying to use counter.

Using counter there was too much chance that I would try and use it when there ending up being too many enemies around me.

Comment #61 by Mystery616
Friday, March 21, 2014 @ 06:45:17 PM

I agree with #58. I stink at combos, but the robot fight in the DLC is real easy to get this if you pay attention.
