Worst Nightmare - 15 Challenges

 

***Best to knock these out as soon as the opportunity arises as these are easily missable***

 

***If you follow this guide exactly you can complete all in one playthrough***

 

1. Perform an Inverted Takedown, a Vent Takedown, and a Wall Takedown

 

One of the first predator encounters is when you are going to decrypt Enigma's first radio tower. There is a hostage situation in which it tells you to drop smoke in order to take down the thugs. Simply travel atop the wall joints until you are on top of the hostage-taker and perform an inverted takedown. The enemies will run away and be positioned for the next two takedowns. Travel through the vent and perform a vent takedown then perform a wall takedown on the enemy next to the breakable wall.

 

2. Perform 3 Silent Takedowns in a single Predator Encounter

 

This can be done on rooftoops or during an actual story predator encounter. Simply sneak up behind 3 enemies and perform a silent takedown(:ybut:) on each enemy. This can be performed before entering the ship to meet penguin and be used in conjunction with rank 3.

 

3. Finish a Predator Encounter without being seen

 

Must be done in a predator-type environment in the story or side missions ONLY. Simply knock out each enemy with a silent takedown to complete this. Best done at the predator encounter on the ship going toward penguin.

 

4. Use a Sonic Batarang to lure an enemy into a takedown(3x)

 

Must be done in a predator type environment. Can be done on rooftops around the world. Simply throw the sonic batarang and wait until an enemy is attracted to the sound, then take him out silently. Repeat 3x.

 

5. Complete a Predator room without using Detective Vision

 

Must be done in a predator-type environment and can be done on rooftops. Just approach the environment without using detective vision and silently take down the thugs.

 

6. Perform 4 Exotic Takedowns in one Predator Encounter: Vent Takedown, Explosive Gel Takedown, Corner Takedown, and Hanging Ledge Takedown

 

Must be done in a predator-type environment in the story or side missions ONLY. The best environments for this challenge are the bank mission, Deadshot's side mission, or the Blackgate Prison. The vent take down must be performed through a vent in the wall and not a grate. Explosive gel takedown can only be performed on a wall with an explosive sign on it. Place the gel on the opposite side of the wall and wait for an enemy to approach the other side of it. Corner takedown can only be performed on an enemy in front of a corner after you have snapped(:abut:) to it. Hanging ledge takedown is the most difficult of the 4. Wait atop a DOORWAY until an enemy passes through it and wait for the prompt for a silent takedown. Restart checkpoint if missed.

 

7. Complete a Predator Encounter without doing any takedowns

 

This must be done in a story or side mission predator encounter. You can do this during the black mask mission. Simply stun then beatdown all enemies in the room to complete. A good strategy for this is to use the multiple batarang attack to knock out most of the guards so you can beatdown one that is standing. Also, you can deactivate the guns by using the disruptor.

 

8. Complete a Predator Encounter without using Detective Vision and without being seen

 

This must be done in a story or side mission predator encounter. You can do this during the hotel lobby predator encounter. Go slow without detective vision and silently take down all the thugs in the room without being seen.

 

9. Perform 4 Loud Takedowns in one Predator Encounter: Grate Takedown, Inverted Takedown, Knock-Out Smash Takedown and Ledge Takedown

 

This must be done in a story or side mission predator encounter. Best done in the 2nd predator encounter in the hotel. Grate takedowns are performed from under the floor grates. Inverted takedowns are performed atop the wall joints or gargoyles. Knock out smash is performed by executing the silent takedown move then hitting the :xbut: button. A ledge takedown is performed by holding on to a ledge below an enemy and hitting the :ybut: button. ***This challenge can be completed with rank 10 if you hide immediately after each takedown***

 

10. Complete a Predator Encounter with a High Threat Level or higher without being seen

 

This must be done in a story or side mission predator encounter. Most predator encounters throughout the game have a high threat level. Simply knock out all the thugs to complete this challenge. Unlocks the Sonic Shock Batarang.

 

11. Take out an enemy with the Sonic Shock Batarang

 

Can be be completed on top rooftops. Simply lure a thug on top of the Sonic Shock Batarang then shock him.

 

12. Complete a Predator Encounter with a High Threat Level or above by performing at least 5 Different Takedowns

 

This must be done in a story or side mission predator encounter. This can be done in the Blackmask side mission if you are following this guide exactly. Use 5 different takedowns in a single encounter: grate takedown, vent takedown, inverted takedown, knockout smash, silent takedown, wall takedown, ledge takedown, hanging ledge takedown, sonic shock batarang takedown.

 

13. Eliminate 3 enemies within the duration of one Smoke Pellet

 

This can be completed on the rooftops, the ship, or the steel mill. It is best to knock out one enemy and attract the others to his position, then drop smoke and knock out the enemies. To save time, knockout smash each enemy instead of silent takedown. If you only have 3 enemies you can glue grenade one and attract the other thugs.

 

14. Eliminate 3 Enemies using a Propane Tank

 

The easiest places for this is during GCPD, hotel lobby, or the Firefly story mission. If you are following this guide exactly then do it in the first bomb room in the Firefly mission. Find the area with the propane tank and knock out(or batarang/glue grenade) one guard attracting the attention of the other guards in the area. Keep remote clawing/multiple batarang the enemies until you get 3 in the same area. You can only remote claw a propane tank to a standing enemy and in order to knock out 3 at once you must have two on the ground next to the standing enemy. Once you have two knocked out and one standing pull the tank toward him using the remote claw.

 

15. Pull 2 enemies over a railing at the same time using Advanced Gadget Techniques.

 

This has to be done with the remote claw and simply attach two enemies together on opposite ledges so they each fall off. Make sure you aim at each guy and target with the claw(:rbbut:). You can do this right after rank 14 in the next bomb room with the 2 guards talking on the catwalk. Just distract one guard to the ledge above where you first enter with the sonic batarang.

 

 

World's Greatest Detective - Complete 66% of the database

 

 

You will get this naturally going for the Anarky tags, Enigma data packs and Pinkney Plaques. Simply progress until you reach 66% of the collectibles database.

Much appreciated. I have completed New Game Plus and I still haven't got all the Worst Nightmare challenges. I did challenge 12 during my second run and now i free roam to do the other three. (Don't tell me I have to do them on "I Am the Night" mode...)

 

The rooftop of the GCPD is a good place to do the smoke pellet thing. I was wondering if I could do the last two (14 + 15) on free roam. Is there a propane tank somewhere out there? Or the two guys on opposite ledges?

 

Great job. Much needed guide.

Thank you for this I was confused on the 20x strike (with upgrade) one I was going to head over to fight Sheva after I did all the collectibles then game gets courrpted. You should put this up on Trueachievements too be great! :} Very awesome!

As far as the propane tank challenge, I will say negative on the free roam. However, you can pull off challenge 15 on the ship I would imagine. Just attract a guard to a spot across from the guy standing on the right side.

Ι believe 15 is doable also on the roof on steel mill. I grabbed the sniper (tag with RB) and shot another one on the opposite ledge as soon as the line went yellow. They both fell to ground level so I assume it can be done, but I can't confirm because I can't find a damn propane tank to do 14!

 

ΕDiT: I started "I Am the Night" mode and since you don't get to start with all your gadgets, the first time you can do challenge 14 is in the GCPD. Just before the Predator room, you get to stand on a wooden arch and see down below about 7-10 bad guys you are about to fight. Near them is a propane tank (why on earth... nvmind). You can stand on the arch and shoot them with the remote claw (tag & shoot) so that you can knock out some of them. Be careful not to string the propane tank yet. When you have enough people down (but not out yet), string up the propane to one of them, as xoskxflip describes. If you do it right, you'll get the verification when the fight is over. If you happen to think that you got it, but you didn't, no worries, the Predator room is ahead and you can get it in there.

 

I got to GCPD in about one and a half hour (or about 2 hours if you take your time/watch cutscenes) since I started the "IATN" mode.

 

Alson IATN mode isn't all that difficult, you just have to keep your health in mind, so that when you run low, you restart the checkpoint.

I thought that area was a "combat" area instead of a predator area. It makes sense that you could be right, did you actually get it there?

im stuck on the Grapnel Accelerator Takedown is there a good place to do it?

I definitely can remember doing two of these takedowns so far. One was when I broke into the GCPD, but I don't know exactly where it was and the enemies won't respawn there anyway..

 

But: you can get it somewhere near the courthouse where you fight Anarky. On one of the buildings' rofftops nearby is an enemy walking down some stairs and then he's coming very close to the edge. Try to look around a bit, it's quite a narrow alley and there's a fence/gate nearby as well.

There is a walkway that wraps around Wonder Tower in the Solomon Park district. it has two snipers on, you can wait for either of them to reach the end of the cat walk and grapnel up from ground level.

 

Which mission is the first bank predator room a part of? I know it's where the Deadshot mission is but I would rather not have to wait that long as it's only Rank 6 I need to do in there.

It's when you apprehend Black Mask inside the bank. That's the first time you go to the bank and according to sun100, you can get it Rank 6 in there on your first visit. It's a pretty early story mission. Not sure of what the name of the mission is.

Ah yes, I remember now, no way am I leaving that room without getting rank 6 lol

I have had multiple freezes but no corruptions.

Nope...I'm online. Only 2 freezes in my 20+ odd hours. I think 30+ hours at this point, I don't know.

 

Knock on wood.

Good luck! I was able to get it done at Blackgate, so now I have to do 7-15 on New Game+ this weekend. I'm hoping they're not too hard.

Yes, I got it there (GCPD, before the predator room) and then went on to the Penguin's boat to do 15 on ng+ free roam mode, as you describe. As it seems (about 14), it doesn't have to be a "predator" area.

They are not too hard, I ended up doing rank 14 in the first room of firefly's mission as described. The tank is on the bottom and takes some positioning if the guards to get it. I was just like you, in that I completed rank 6 right at the end of my first play through.
