Please skip any parts you don't need. =================== Prologue - x310x | =================== After the cutscene, jump into catwoman's boots. Be careful because you'll be given control right in the middle of a fight. This is a pretty simple fight though as long as you aim towards your enemies and hit the strike button (X or  depending on console). Watch for enemies attacking denoted by little lightning bolts surrounding their heads. Whenever that appears, hit the counter button (Y or triangle) to block and counter attack. Just hammer through these guys. Once done, walk over to the safe at the top of the stairs and open it. Bruce Wayne - x311x ------------------- When you finally regain control, try to move left and right using the left analog stick to knock the chair over. When the guard tries to attack you, counter his attack. This begins a rather long mini-tutorial on countering. Just follow the guards orders and eventually you will be attacked by inmates. Counter these attacks as best you can. You can also attack them yourselves at this point. This part is more like a regular fight. Despite still being in chains, you can still attack and counter and eventually you'll be freed. Defeat the remaining enemies with attacks and counter attacks. Then when you say something about finding Alfred, head over to the dumpster and the climb up the ladder. At the top, run forward and jump across (just hold A) to the air ducts. Follow the ducts around and jump up by the broken ladder and then climb the ladder at the top up to the roof. Keep hopping up one ledge at a time until you call Alfred. Once your talk is over, turn right and you should see a tall building with ACE in big letters going down along the side. Line up to jump across and grab the exposed ledge. Grab it and circle around to the side of the building. You'll continue circling around the building in a sort of navigation tutorial. Follow the button prompts and you'll eventually make your way to a ladder and the top. ================== Batman - x320x | ================== Once you've suited up, you'll start trying to hack a signal. You can listen to either of the Green nodes for information and flavor audio but you want to use the sticks to navigate your cursor to the yellow circle. Once you're there, hold the A button to decrypt the signal and listen in. Once you've listened to the message, turn back towards the ladder you came up and in the distance you should see what looks like a courthouse, as well it should. Make your way along the rooftops until you get close. Hold the A button and run off of one of the buildings to glide. If you are close enough to the enemies in front of the building, you should see a little blue Bat symbol above their head. This is your target and you can change it by adjusting your gliding. Once you've picked an enemy, hit the strike button to glide kick into them, starting a fight. These enemies may have bats but that doesn't change them too much. It really only means you should be careful to counter them when they attack because their attacks do extra damage and may daze you a bit. If you manage to get your combo counter high enough then you should be prompted to use a takedown move by hitting two buttons. Do so to instantly take one of the enemies out of the fight. Remember to keep the combo meter going so you can get more takedown chances. Once you've eliminated them, move inside. Yes, through the front door. The Courthouse - x321x ---------------------- Once inside, go up the stairs and at the top, take a right and look through the giant glass window into the center of the building. After a cutscene, go right and you should see a ladder. You can climb the ladder... or you can just use your grappling hook. Get to the top and Batman will mention taking out the guard with the gun. Hold the right trigger to crouch and close in on the guard. When you are behind him, hit the counter button to do a silent takedown. Once he's down, look down and stand by the edge. You should see the glide kick icon. Pick an enemy and hit the strike button and you'll automatically drop down to attack. This fight isn't really as bad as it looks. Most of the enemies actually flee leaving you to fight what is probably a smaller group than you had outside. Keep your wits about you and you'll do fine. After you finish the fight, watch the cutscene. Tracking the Shooter - x322x ---------------------------- Once you regain control, open the evidence tracker (aka. Detective Mode). Look to the window on the right and put the cursor on the bullet hole. Hold the A button until the green encircles the whole cursor. Once you've done that, search the floor in the center of the room for another bullet hole. Again, hold the A button. This will calculate the trajectory and your next destination. Use the grappling hook to climb back up to the ledge the guard was originally on. Drop down the ladder and run back through the hallway. Instead of going back down the stairs, continue on through the door with the green exit light beyond. Once outside, you can use the grappling hook to get up to the flag pole and to the roof. Feel free to listen to the guys bellow for some fun banter. When done, turn left and you should see your destination. It's a large thin tower with red banners running down the length. Make your way over and you can sit on top of one of the gargoyles. Drop down on the guards, there are only three of them. Once you've dealt with them head through the big door. The Church - x323x ------------------ Once you are through the main door, you will be attacked. Just wait and counter attack when appropriate. Once you've done that, wait for all the talking and then you will be prompted to drop smoke pellets and then use your grappling hook. Do so in that order. Thus begins your first stalker segment. This one isn't too complex (no moving parts). Hit detective mode when prompted. All of the glowing gold gargoyles are perches you can swing to using the grappling hook. Move up towards the intersection. From there you can take down the enemies on either side (one by the scaffolding and one in the confessional). Just get behind each one by gliding and then use a takedown. You can do a takedown through the back of the confessional. Once they've been taken down, go back up to the gargoyles and then drop down from the one behind the last two enemies. Come up behind them and hit the takedown button to take both out at once. Now that the room is safe, head back towards the front door and on the left you will see a door that leads up to the bell tower (Batman will mention going up there when you are near it). Go through the door and as you go up the wooden stairs, if you turn right you can just grapple up through an archway. Walk into the tower itself and grapple your way up from ledge to ledge and then take a ladder up through the trap door (it will glow gold in detective mode). When you get into the next room, inspect the sniper rifle using the evidence tracker. Once done, Joker will talk to you and mention something about a boom. Turn right and run towards the window. Double tap the evade button to jump out of the window. Joker's Funhouse - x324x ------------------------ From here, you want to head roughly south east. Follow the map (hit back/select to open it) and you're heading for the bridge to the industrial district. As you go, you'll be alerted to the availability of the Augmented Reality training. Feel free to pursue that to receive an upgraded grapnel (the gun that shoots the grapple hook). Continue across the bridge into Joker's fun house. If you're getting a Green arrow, then you're headed in the right direction. Your final destination is the Steel Mill (which is a chimney with giant statues attached). Once you finally find it, grapple up to the top of the chimney and you'll enter automatically. ========================= The Steel Mill - x330x | ========================= Waste Exchange - x331x ---------------------- You'll find yourself perched on a wire. Glide over to the ledge on the side and follow the hallway around. You'll come to a low gap by a trickling water pipe. You want to run towards this and hit the crouch button. You'll slide through the hole to the other side. Now make your way over the pipes here and you'll eventually come to a railing that appears to be on fire. If you approach, Batman will say something about how you'll be boiled alive. Enter detective mode and look dead ahead. There will be hatch across the gap. If you push up on the directional pad, you'll select your Batclaw. Aim and shoot at the hatch, then repeatedly tap the A button to open it. Go over to the rail and drop down. Head towards the center and drop over the ledge. Slide to the left and then climb up again. Turn left and go onward. You'll come back to the center section again but you'll be able to hop on the rail in front of you. Do so and walk over the middle. When you run out of rail, turn right and hop to the next one. Use this to cross to the other side. Follow this platform around and at the end, activate detective mode. You'll notice that the floor is a blue color and has a "Pow!" symbol in the middle. Select your explosive gel (left on the directional pad) and then aim and shoot it on the blue surface. Back off from it and follow the command prompts to detonate it. Drop through the hole. Head forward and crouch under the pipes. Don't walk into the pipes spewing steam/water. Instead, choose your baterang and use it to hit the button above and to the right of the hole in the wall. You'll automatically crouch. Just follow this crawl space until you can see into a room with inmates. From here, take a right and continue to follow the path until you come to some pipes spewing fire. After a second or two, the flames will die down so you can cross. Be quick though because the flame will return to its normal size quickly. Just past the flames take a left. Loading Bay - x332x ------------------- You'll enter the main room but you'll be under it in the vents. Go through the vents and come out the other side. Once there, you'll be able to stand up. Take a right and then crouch and go left. follow the path until you see more pipes with steam and three green buttons on the other side. You have to hit all three of these quickly to shut off the steam. To do so, tap the aim button to quick throw instead of aiming. Head back the way you came and crawl under the metal steps back towards the center room. You'll enter a squarish area from which you can enter the center room. From this spot, you can actually enter above with a takedown, eliminating an enemy right from the start. The group above consists of about 8 enemies. Most of them are nothing special however you should watch out for flying objects. Occasionally, an enemy will grab a milk crate or brick from the side to throw at you. Keep an eye out for this and dodge as appropriate. Aside from this, the rest of the enemies are pretty simple, not even carrying any kind of weapon. Finding the Doctor - x333x -------------------------- Take the door that leads west out of the room. There's nothing currently of note in the next room so go through the next set of doors. You'll come to a room and Batman mentions that he needs to find another way around so head to the left. If you follow the conveyor belt, you should see a door with a giant red button next to it. Hit the button to open the door and crouch under it. Hop off the belt and the grapple up to the ledge. Head into the bigger room and the grapple up to the vantage point for another stalker section. This is pretty short but you won't be told what to do. Just go from vantage to vantage until you're behind the enemies (there are only three). Drop down behind the lone enemy and do a silent takedown. Then go down the stairs and do a double takedown on the enemies there. Go back up the stairs and jump through the window for good measure. Just cross to the door in the next room (or play with the giant Harley statue for fun). Smelting Chamber - x334x ------------------------ The next room has six guards in it. The first two are an easy target so just crouch down, sneak up behind them (they'll be right in front of you) and do a double take down. Climb up to a vantage point. At this point, you'll have two enemies wondering around and two in a room in the corner with the doctor. After you get rid of the two outside, one of the two in the room will come out. To get the first two, you can either drop down and sneak up behind him for a silent takedown or you can wait for him to walk under a vantage and do a takedown from there. It shouldn't be a problem to do either because they are fairly far apart. Once they are gone, move to the vantage attached to the room and just wait for the guy in the room to come out. He'll go right under it and you can do an inverted takedown. Swing over to one of the other vantages and you can do a glide kick on the last guy through the window. Just make sure to finish him while he's on the ground. Go over and hit A to free the doctor. Finding Joker - x335x --------------------- Head out of the small room the doctor was in and turn left. Cross the center of the room and you should see a shutter door with a motor above it (it will be gold in detective mode). Take out your new toy which is right on the directional pad and then hit RB/R1 to shoot an electric charge. Note that in some cases you want to hit RT/R2 instead to have the opposite effect (in this case, it would close the door instead of open it). Go into the small room and do the same thing above the next door which will reveal a door right behind it. This one you just walk through with the A button. Grapple up to the ledge and enter the air duct. Pop the vent open and drop down behind these guys. You can do a silent takedown or practice using the guns quickfire stun attack. It really does just stun them and is nowhere near permanant so keep that in mind. This guys really are nothing though and there are only four of them so take them down however you please. Once done, you should find yourself in a familiar room. Just turn around and find the door. Keep heading backwards through doors until you are back in the loading bay area from before and Harley Quinn will talk to you through the giant Joker Mouth on the wall. Loading Bay - x336x ------------------- On the opposite side of the room is a generator (glows gold). It's kind of a cylindrical thing on a box. You want to alternate the two different electric shocks to push the giant hook in the middle of the room forward and backward like a swing. Eventually you will send it through the door in the Joker's Mouth. Pull it back out and then grapple up through the new hole. Fight! If you use the quick shot on the big guy, it will cause a spasm which will swing his hammer in a big circle. Might sound kind of dumb in a 1 on 1 but it's a great way to start the fight. Hit him with that a few times and you should only have 1 or 2 enemies left aside from him. Keep your distance from him and watch for his giant jumping attack. Once it's just the two of you, close in and hit him three times and then double tap the evade button to jump over him. Hit him no more than three times and evade over him again. Rinse and Repeat until he is dead. Climb back up and try again. Catwoman - x337x ---------------- Now you get to navigate as Catwoman which is far more different than the differences in fighting style (though not hard to adjust for). She can still run and jump but instead of the grapnel, she just has a whip which doesn't retract. This means that you can latch onto something and swing but then you need to climb up the side of the building. This is actually pretty simple, only requiring you to hit the same button a couple of times. You can aim in the direction you want to climb if you look before you leap. However, you will be rewarded with experience (in the upper left) for timing your leaps perfectly so you make a fluid climb to the top. Make your way NE to Catwoman's home. You'll actually see a Bat Signal above your destination. On the west side of Catwoman's roof is actually a caged in area that you can hop onto. Go close to one of the gates on top and you can climb down through it and hang from the ceiling. Go over the top of the enemies below and you can drop directly from here for a combat takedown. The enemies are pretty simple but you can use this to practice your whip usage. Hit the LT button to attack an enemy with a whip which will knock them over from a good distance. Once done you can approach Catwoman's window and hit A to get your Caltrops. Keep heading NE (follow the green marker on your compass at the top). You will soon come to a building crawling with enemies (you'll hear them before you see them). These enemies aren't anything special, dispatch them and then head for the tower in the water by way of the broken bridge. Be careful when you cross just beyond the bridge because there are enemies with guns up here. You can sneak up to take them down silently if you are careful. Use your ability to climb around the side of buildings to your advantage. If you get caught, use your whip to down them and then do a ground takedown to eliminate them quickly without taking too much damage. Once they are clear, head up the stairs to the catwalk and then you can actually swing down to the underside of it and crawl along. You'll bump strait into a Riddle statue so you might as well grab it and then go forward until you are prompted to climb back up. This will put you on the other side of the locked gate. In the next room, you'll get into a minor fight with only five or so enemies. The most important part is that they act somewhat zombie like which doesn't change how you fight them so much as just being neat. After you finish them, a toxin will flood the room (not a Neurotoxin). Jump up to the ceiling and then climb through to the other side. Again, once you climb up, you'll be confronted with a slightly larger group of enemies. Just keep your wits about you, there is plenty of space for the fight. There are about 8 or so enemies here. Once you've cleared them, there will be more toxin, another jump to the ceiling, and then another climb around to the top where you will be confronted with even more enemies. The difference in this area is that one of the plants on the wall will occasionally shoot fire balls at you. Try to move the fight along as best as possible to limit the number of shots it gets and remember to watch out when it does shoot. ========================= Joker's Errand - x340x | ========================= Turn left and grapple up that way. Keep going and try to find a high point so you don't have to fear being shot at as much. You are headed North of your current location to the GCPD Building just east of the Amusement Mile. If you are wondering why the numbers going up is a good thing while looking for a cold spot, it's because it's actually already a negative number but they placed the negative sign in a terrible spot, making it hard to see. Or maybe I'm the only one who thought that. GCPD Outdoors - x341x --------------------- Once you get there, be careful of patrolling guards. They all have guns so be sure to take them down one at a time while they are alone. If you are discovered, use your smoke pellets. If you are fast, the smoke pellets could even be enough to take out the enemies in the area (rather than just running). After you've cleared the area, in front of the building is a ringing phone that you can answer to start a side mission. Head around to the side of the front of the building. There will be a shutter door that you can open with your Electric Charge. It will only open a little ways so you'll have to do a running slide under the door. Inside, turn right and head towards the double doors. You'll take the encryption key from the radio and do another hacking game for Penguin's radios. Find the yellow circle and then hold the A button. Now just head through the double doors. GCPD - x342x ------------ Go forward a little ways until the ceiling above opens up. Then you can grapple onto a ledge. Run forward and at the end you'll find a vent. Climb inside and it will bring you around to the giant middle room and your first real Stalker challenge. There are five enemies in the area. The easiest to take out will probably be the front most two. One of them will be facing the front door and not turn and along the same wall and up some stairs will be another guy facing a different door way. Just wait until they are alone and drop down for a silent takedown. Once you've got those two, there are two more that circle around either side of the room. You may have to explosive gel the glass first but you can actually do an inverted takedown through the glass. Just have patience and wait for him to go right underneath. Take one down and the other two guards will probably go to investigate. Wait until they come out from under there. When they are finally out, select your baterang and use it to hit one guard and immediately glide kick the other. You should knock down both enemies, then just do a ground takedown on both to finish them off. After a brief talk, head back to the entrance of the building. You'll be trapped and download the unlock codes you need. Drop through the grate in the floor and head into the nearby room. Climb back out and use detective mode to find the unlock panel on the wall. Select your Cryptographic Sequencer. Target the panel and shoot (RT/R2) to start the real hacking minigame. You want to rotate the sticks to clear all the letters so you're only left with one letter per column. The left stick controls the left bunch of letters while the right stick controls the right bunch of letters. Rotate the left stick slowly until the first column resolves into a single letter. Continue rotating and soon the other letters should fall into place, one by one. Once you have gotten the left group, hold the analog stick there and go through the same process with the right analog stick and word. Once you have both words, the doors should unlock. Head back outside. To get out, you'll have to open the shutter and slide under like you did before. ===================== The Museum - x350x | ===================== Climb up and then start heading WSW. The Museum is the Western most part of the city. Once you get to within a building's distance, watch out for armed guards. Drop in front of the museum and take out the guards here. They should present no real challenge. Once you've cleared them out, there is another security panel by the gate. Hack it to open the gate and then go through the door. Once inside the museum, you'll meet a new enemy type. These enemies carry knives and can't be countered like normal enemies. When they attack, if you push away on the left stick and the counter button, you'll take a step back to dodge their attack. Unlike normal counters where you just need to hit counter any time they have the indicator above their heads, with knives you actually have to time it for when they are attacking and you need to hit it for each swing they take at you. When you successfully dodge a swing, you don't counter. In other words, no damage is dealt to the enemy. The nice thing about enemies with knives is that if you knock the enemy down, they can drop their knives which just turns them into regular enemies that can be countered like any other. In cases like these, I encourage you to be aggressive towards knife wielding enemies, this will create a simpler group of enemies to deal with. Do so here to deal with these guys quickly. Jump through the window on the right and try to hack the panel in here. You'll be told you can't do it and you'll have to head back outside to find the jammer in question. The Jammers - x351x ------------------- The jammer is actually on the roof of this very building. It's above the northern wing. Climb up so you look over the jammer and then you can jump down and fight the enemies. You should be careful here because while none of these enemies have weapons, they can get weapons from the green stack of boxes by the wall. If you hear some kind of siren, it means that someone is trying to get a weapon out. This person should be your priority because if they get a weapon out, it can end this battle pretty quickly. Run to each of the screens on the jammer and break each one. There are three. But wait, there's more! The other jammer is just north-east of the museum. You should see it in detective mode. You may end up approaching this building from a lower level rather than higher because of the low lying buildings around it. It may be preferable to go around it and get up higher before trying to take the enemies down. There are four of them. Two are together right next to the jammer and can be taken down with a baterang and glide. The other two will come running and if you leave you can probably do the same thing to them to quickly clear the area. Disable this jammer like the last one. The Subway - x352x ------------------ It appears there is one more. You want to head south to the Subway station. You can actually get in without removing any of the guards. The entrance is on the west side. Just drop down on the far side of the glass and hop the barrier to get inside. Go down the stairs and do a double takedown on the guards talking about reading. Go down those stairs and at the bottom, take a right and continue down more stairs. This should open into the actual subway area. Head to the back left and you'll see a vent that you can remove. You actually want to grapple up onto the train nearby. Walk along the trains, and you'll eventually have to slide under some pipes, hurdle over others and then break through (with a simple attack) some boards blocking an archway. You should hear a couple of guys talking about Solomon Grundy. Hop over to the next train and crouch under the pipes. Turn right and drop down behind the group looking at the painting of Solomon Grundy. Try and take the left two in a double takedown and then you should only be left with one enemy. Dispose of him and turn left. There will be a shuttered door. Open it and slide under. You'll come to a stalker section. While you could try and climb up past the guards to do your thing, I find it easier to just hop into the grates. Get in the grate and follow it around to the far side. Eventually someone will come up from the tracks and walk behind some boxes, blocking view from everyone else. Wait for him to get behind the boxes, hop out of hiding and do a silent takedown. From here, it's just a matter of letting the guards come and investigate which will generally isolate them from the rest. They come in groups of two usually so you just need to wait for them to separate, take one down and hop back into the grate. Rinse and repeat. Once done with that, head over and destroy the last jammer (on the far side of the train car). Once you are done with that, you can simply return the way you came. Just watch for enemies that you may have left hanging around outside. Once you get outside, if you use your grapnel, you'll probably climb right back up to the museum. Return to the Museum - x353x ---------------------------- Head back inside and through the window you jumped through earlier. This time you should have no trouble hacking the panel. Hack it and go back down the hall and to the railing. Turn left and climb up to the vantage points. You'll see a couple of thugs harassing someone below but before you intervene, there is a new enemy type down there. It's an armored enemy type. To deal damage, you first need to hit the B button to stun them. Then attack them like any other guy. Be warned that this guy also has a knife (they really didn't want this to be easy). Despite having only three enemies, you're looking at a very varied fight so stay on your feet. They are an Armored knife thug, a knife thug, and a regular guy. Make sure you dodge when necessary and you'll be fine. I highly recommend getting the Knife counter Takedown as soon as possible because it will make dealing with the armored knife guys easier. Just to the right of the cop is your exit. Go down the hall and through the single door. You can't do anything on either side of the hallway yet. Turn right up ahead and inspect the gate you can't seem to open. You'll be told to use a remote control baterang (control is inverted by default). You want to throw it up and over the gate then back down to hit the button. Follow the hall left and go through the door. Gladiator Pit - x354x --------------------- This is a big fight with probably 20+ enemies. It's a hugely simple fight though with no real diversity. In fact, you could probably make it through this fight by just attacking and suffer only one or two hits. Once you've cleared the room of the small fries, you'll have to deal with a Titan. This is a little bit easier than in AA. You don't have to play chicken, you just have to execute a three hit stun and then you can attack the Titan freely. Once you've done enough damage, you can get on his back and ride him. He has a charge attack and ground pound attack. Use him to do as much damage to the group of small enemies that has joined you. Eventually you will get bucked off, at which point I cleared the rest of the smaller enemies. They are weak and will go down fast. Once they are gone, you can finish up on the Titan fairly quickly. After Penguin departs, head towards the gate under the stairs. You will need to throw a baterang over or through (it's possible) the fence on the right to hit a button on the wall. I found it was actually easier to try and throw the baterang through a gap in the fence than over it because the angle coming back down was too steep. This will open a gate under the left set of steps. Go through it and almost directly ahead of you will be a lift. Run and hop over the fence to get inside and then shoot the generator to go up. At the top you want to spray some explosive gel on the ceiling. Go down, detonate, go back up and climb out of the elevator. Torture Chamber - x355x ----------------------- Go forward and you'll soon find another destructible wall. Blow it up, walk through and go through the door on your left. Watch the cutscene and then hop down to the ice to rescue the cop. walk very slowly so you don't break the ice. If you hear a beeping sound, it's because you're moving too quickly. Once he's free, head back down to find the other two. head towards the right side of the room and be introduced to Penguin's friend. If you turn detective mode on, you will see golden glowing hooks scattered around the room and something hanging from the ceiling. Use the batclaw to grab and pull this object. It will fall in the water creating a raft. Shoot it with the batclaw and pull it towards you. Hop on and then use the batclaw on any of the hooks in the room to pull the raft towards them. Shoot at hook behind the cop and float over to his platform. The second guard is a little bit trickier but not overly so. You actually have to rescue him from the raft so make sure you get close. War Room - x356x ---------------- To get to the War Room you need to cross to the south side of the Torture Chamber. You'll have to use the raft to get to the ice, then cross and use the raft on the other side to get close enough to grapple up to the doorway. Once you climb up, you'll come to a hallway with some thugs, including an armored thug. There is a security door in front of you so look for the panel on the left to hack it. Once you've gotten it down, I prefer to start this fight with a baterang just for good measure (for taunting you). Clear these guys out and head through the door. Go around the corner, slide under the gate and then to the right of where the prisoner is being held, put explosive gel on the wall. A fight will start that is rather similar to the one you had before. In fact, it's pretty identical. If you shock the big guy, you'll get the same result. If you stun the big guy, you can get a decent number of hits in on him. Once they are cleared out, head through the wall to the right and around the back of the make shift cell. Free Freeze by hacking the panel. He will tell you to go to his suit. Go back to the torture chamber and cross to the northern side. Climb up and walk through the door at the end. Armory - x357x -------------- You will enter a new Stalker area. Hop up to the statues and make your way over to Mr. Freeze's suit. Drop down and do a silent takedown of him. From this point on, they will scatter a little so it's a matter of separating them out and picking them off. I highly recommend hanging by the stairs because it seems to be out of view of almost every area (including the bridge). You do have to be careful to listen for them saying something about "So you think you can hide in the darkness?" which means they are going to use their infrared goggles to search whichever vantage they are near. If you are near him, move to a different vantage and you'll be fine. The only other thing to watch for is when you get rid of half of the men, one of them will take a hostage. From that point on, you can't be seen or you lose. Listen for Batman to give cues as to what not to do. For instance, I dropped an inverted body by cutting the rope with a baterang and he mentioned that if I used another baterang, they'd discover my location. Once you've gotten the last two guys, go over to a vantage by the bridge and wait for the hostage taker to turn his back. Drop down and sneak up for a takedown. Be sure to be fast. Head back to the Torture Chamber. Go to the Iceberg Lounge. On the way, there will be a surprise. You want to mash the strike attack and then continue to the lounge. the Iceberg Lounge - x358x -------------------------- When you enter this room, Penguin will be in the middle of the room with Freeze's gun. To use the codes to disable the gun (that you got from Freeze's suit), you need to get closer. Make your way around the outside ring, stopping when you have a wall between you and Penguin. Wait for him to stop shooting and move to the next wall. Keep moving until you get to the far side and can walk up to him. When you start walking up to him, take out the Override using the directional pad and use LT/L2 to aim. As you start walking towards him, hold the RT/R2 to activate it. Keep holding it until you are on top of him. Now punch him. Solomon Grundy - x359x ---------------------- Solomon Grundy is a rather indirect fight but you need to keep an eye on him. He has an overhead attack that can reach pretty much anywhere. It's fast so you need to dodge as soon as it's coming. His other main attack is that he can spin the chains in a big circle. You have more time to plan this but you need to time your dodge as they balls are going by you. To defeat him, you must plant explosive gel on the three different pads that keep changing colors and then set them off. You should be prompted to use the quick spray and quick detonate. Notice the little jump Batman does during the quick spray? That actually also counts as a dodge and will work for Solomon's attacks. Just dodge when necessary and plant those explosives. Once all three are destroyed, you can attack Solomon. Go pound on him to start the next phase Phase 2 is rather similar to the first phase except you need to hit the pads on the ground while they are open and they don't always stay open. You also need to be aware that he might occasionally release a little critter on the ground. This is easily handled with a quick baterang. Go about this fight the same as the last and just remember to be careful to dodge his attacks. When you destroy all three again, pound on him again. Once he's on his back, you need to go up and "Finish Him" And by that, it means start Phase 3. Phase 3 is similar to Phase 2 except that he hits the ground causing a shockwave that can hit you pretty much anywhere and he does it frequently. You also have to watch out for the little critters because they come at you much faster. Destroy the three pads once more and then attack Solomon Grundy a final time to destroy him. Phase 4 starts with you being shot at. Just dodge left and right while still making forward progress. Once you are in striking range, let rip on him because he has no defenses. This will be over quickly. ================================= The League of Shadows - x360x | ================================= Leave the museum and head NE. You're aiming for just south of Park Row and the Ace Chairman's Building. You could also just follow the blood trail there but hopefully this will save time. On top of the NE corner of this building, you should find bandages. Scan them when prompted and then chase after the Ninja. You will follow her for a little bit and then catch up to her. When the fight starts, just wait for her to attack you and then counter to plant the tracker on her. Meet a friend and act like a jerk. You are tracking the assassin again but this time you will be quite a ways away. Follow the arrow and the box to your destination which should bring you all the way around the city to the Southwest part of the Industrial district. You'll find a Subway Maintenance Access that you want to jump down. It might be best if you try and glide and then dive bomb down because there are a few guards around the top with guns. The Sewers - x361x ------------------ Once in the sewers, just follow the path you're on until you come to big gap. Drop down and take out the thugs here but be careful because one of them is armored and there isn't a whole lot of room to maneuver. Make sure to use your evade to jump over enemies so you can get some space. Once you get rid of them, head down the tunnel and take a right. Crouch under the gate and then pick the line launcher. You want to aim and shoot to go across the water but you want to release your aim and then re-aim as you get to the intersection. You want to aim left and then shoot again. This will send you in a 90 degree angle. Land and then take a left. Go down the hallway and take a right so you're standing on wooden boards above a group of thugs. Use a takedown to go through the wood. This fight is a little complex. Thankfully there are no armored enemies but there are weapon crates scattered around the map and milk crates that enemies will try to throw at you. That can create quite a handful for this fight. Your priority should always be anybody going for a weapon. Take them out first with gadgets if you need to. After them, as long as you keep moving, you can skip the guys with the crates otherwise you want to go for them next. Once they are cleared out, there is a panel on the Southeast wall. Hack it. Go through the gate you just opened and you'll find yourself in a familiar place. This is where the last jammer was. Near the jammer, in the northeast corner of the room is a door so you can continue your search for the assassin. Go through the door, use the line launcher to cross the water and then grapple up to the ledge above. Go through the door at the top and walk forward. Old Gotham - x362x ------------------ Walk through the hole in the wall, turn left and use the line launcher to get moving across, then you want to do a second launch to the right half way across. You want to try and line it up as best you can you actually connect with the armored guy on the second line. Knock him down and do a ground takedown to save yourself some trouble. Once he's down, quickly try to find the enemies with the guns. One of them should be towards the front of the room. At this point though, just keep pounding and moving and you'll be fine. Go through the double doors in this room. Wonder Tower Foundation - x363x ------------------------------- You are at another stalker phase. This level isn't too bad at all. Get up on the gargoyles and circle around until you've almost put the middle shaft between you and the hostage. After a minute, the man with the jammer pack will come around under you. Just do an inverted takedown on him. Then circle around so you can see the hostage. One of the two will go to investigate the body and you should take out the one who stays by the hostage. Go back up and wait for more people to come and check it out. You should be able to hit one with a baterang and then glide kick the other. Do two take downs on them and then wait for the last guy to come up and you can take him down too. Once they are all taken care of, head back to the intern and talk to her. Head back into the big room and head for the door on the north side. Wonder City - x364x ------------------- Head through the next couple of rooms by activating the generators on the ground. At the end, you'll be attacked by Ninjas. They have blades so you have to treat them like enemies with knives. In this case, it pays to be aggressive since they all have swords. They shouldn't be too difficult. Make liberal use of strikes and evades. Once they are clear, there is a piece of floor that can be destroyed with explosives. Open detective mode to find it by the projection wall. Blow it open and then use an electrical charge. Enter Wonder City and walk towards the door in the distance. After you take a better look at the door, examine the different machines to access their video memory. After you've examined a few of the robots, you will be attacked by two ninjas in the middle of the street. After a few more robots, the same thing will happen. But the middle of the street is a relatively safe place for the fight. Use your strikes, counters, dodges and takedowns and you'll end these fights quickly. Once you've examined all of the machines, head towards the big door and just to the left is the secret door. Examine it to find the switch and then you will be attacked. Be ready to counter and when you do, the door will open. Follow the tunnel and turn and eventually you'll come to a ladder. Climb up and out. Walk forward and follow the light. you'll eventually be lead down some stairs and through a door. Go through the door and do as he says, drink from the chalice. Demon's Blood - x365x --------------------- This section seems like it could be very hard but they actually tell you exactly what to do. Just follow the blue trail. When it goes down, dive bomb until it climbs, then climb. Make sure not to touch anything while doing this except for the giant blue crystal plateau. When you land on a plateau, be careful because you may be attacked by clay ninjas. They are like the regular ninjas except they provide more opportunities to counter and are on a smaller surface. If you get to a point with a spinning orange-yellow vortex, you want to dive bomb into it. After diving into the second vortex, you'll find yourself in a room. Walk through the door and up the stairs to see Talia. Walk through the next set of doors for some talking Ra's Al Ghul - x366x -------------------- First, you will be attacked by clay demons. Fight them off just the same as the ones you did before. After you've defeated them, Al Ghul will come up in giant form out of the sand. You want to shoot quick electrical charge shots at him but they have to get beyond his rotating wall of soldiers. This is easier than it seems. Just keep shooting and it'll slip through. The only real challenge is doing this will dodging his other attacks. Just dodge whenever you see any kind of attack coming. They travel fast and you can't afford to hesitate. Once this is done, you'll be attacked and need to keep hitting the counter button. You'll get some conversation at this point but then you will be attacked. By a lot of enemies. Hammer on the counter button until all of the indicators are gone. This will give you an awesome combo counter to start with and then you can just run around bashing on all of the enemies. If you don't kill all of the enemies fast enough, the beginning of this sequence where you have to counter multiple attackers will happen again with whatever remaining enemies there are. Once you've cleared them all, Ra's Al Ghul will appear in his giant form again. Destroy this form just as you did before and he will attack you again. Hammer on the counter button again. After you finish the fight, you will have to use the reverse Baterang on him. Hold the aim button and then use RB/R1 to lock on. Release the button to throw the baterang to finish up here. Return to the Streets - x367x ----------------------------- You'll have to head back up the way you came. It should be pretty quiet up until you get back to the subway. Unfortunately, it seems it's actually easier to get rid of the guards than to sneak by them. When you come through the door into the subway you want to get on the gargoyle to the left (so you're over the tracks). Eventually the guard with the jammer pack will come by near you and you can drop down and take him out. Do so and return to the rafters. move around a little so they don't find you. This is not an easy area to clear. They have the infrared goggles so be careful where you stay but as long as you make good use of your baterang (don't use it too often or they'll find you) and take downs, it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Just remember to move around a lot if they find you. When you manage to clear this area, head out through the Southwest. When you go through the shutter door, you'll actually find a new enemy. This one has a shield. To defeat them, just stun them and hit evade twice. This will knock them down and they will lose their shield, making them normal enemies again. Be aware that their attacks can't be countered in any way so you need to just avoid them or take down their shields. Keep going until you get back the subway terminal. You'll have to crawl through a vent to get into the room and you'll have a very large group of enemies above you. This is a tough fight. You'll have a couple of shielded enemies and plenty of people with bats and pipes. You should also watch for some thrown weapons. Use the takedown on the armored guy to save you some trouble. Then try and find and take down the shielded enemies. Even though someone else will pick up the shield eventually, they can put a real stop to your flow so keep the shields out of the fight as best as you can. Then deal with the little guys until someone else picks up a shield and deal with him. When in doubt, just evade until you have some distance. Back on the Streets - x368x --------------------------- Get some altitude and start heading Northeast of here. You don't have to go far to find Quincy Sharp. This part is a little tough because it's five thugs right around him. If you have the weapon deactivator or the disarming boomerang then this is the perfect opportunity for those. Deactivate two weapons, boomerang a third, drop on a fourth and then attack the fifth and you should pretty quickly have eliminated the guns from the battle. After that, it turns into a regular fight. If you don't have these, drop in on someone and make good use of the smoke pellets. Either way, interrogate Quincy Sharp afterwards. After a little bit of talking, you'll be headed to the GCPD. Head there but be careful because there are guards with guns on a lot of the rooftops now. It's actually safer in a lot of cases to glide through the streets than over rooftops. Another safe alternative is riding choppers since they don't check each other. Head over to the GCPD (east) and find a perch. There is a group of enemies down below. Drop down on one of the regular enemies to take him out instantly and then you have to use lots of stuns for the armored guy and the two shields. Be sure to evade a lot on this battle and don't worry too much about combat flow, just try and get it down because this isn't a particularly easy battle. Once you've removed them, just activate the door as normal and the bottom will thaw. Then you can just slide under as you normally would. Enter the front door of the building. You can't really sneak up on Mr. Freeze here so just walk in the front door. =================== The Cure - x370x | =================== Mr. Freeze - x371x ------------------ This is actually a pretty simple fight. You basically just have to set traps for Mr. Freeze to stun his suit and then attack him while he is stunned. The only real problem is that you can't stun the suit the same way twice and you have to stun him five times. You just have to stay out of sight so you can set your traps and not get destroyed by his Freeze ray. And make sure you watch for his drones in the air. They will try and find you and ram into but usually you just have to put something between yourself and them so that they'll crash. Start off the battle by luring him to one of the magnets. Stand out of his line of sight and aim at the magnet with your electric charge gun. When he gets near it, shoot the magnet and he will get stunned. When he's kneeling on the ground run up and pound on him until his suit actually takes damage (noted in the upper right) and his suit starts beeping. Then run away and hide. Second, if he follows you up to one of the high sides, flip over the railing and hold on so you can do a ledge takedown OR if he stays below you can just get behind him and do a glide kick from behind. Once you do one of these, you can't do the other. Either of these will stun him. Then hit him for damage and retreat. Third, do a takedown from behind. Just get behind him any way you like and crouch walk up behind him. Hit him with a takedown to stun him. Fourth, go to the room that has the wires running into the water. Just inside is a button. Hit it when Freeze walks into the water to stun him but wait for the voltage to die down before you attack him. Fifth, in this same room, off to the right (assuming your still in the room) is a destroyable wall. Go put explosive gel on it and wait for Freeze to come in the room. Then run and slide under the wall. If he comes out then you can slide back into the room. Just wait for him to get close to the wall and set off the explosives. This will give you your last stun. Go in and finish him off. Once his bar is exhausted, you'll have to burst his bubble. Punch him in the face a few times and that should do it. The Chase - x372x ----------------- Head towards the exit like normal except that it's blocked. turn around and run down the hallway towards the gate. The gate is partially open but the pipes are blocking the way. You want to throw your new freeze bombs at the opening of the pipe so it blocks the pipe. Now you can just slide through. Go through the door on the other side to exit the building. Watch events unfold and go to the rescue. Head west but go slowly so you can see the beams from the sniper rifles. Watch for them around the crash site and then follow them back to the source. There should be two to the right and two to the left. Sneak up on them from behind and take them out before rescuing the reporter. Be careful when taking out either group because the sniping groups can see each other. However, if you are quick, they likely won't have time to get a clear shot. With them out of the way, go talk to the reporter. How you actually get there is up to you but you are headed for the Southwest corner of the Steel Mill. Be careful because there are guards with sniper rifles all over the place and they only get thicker once you get to the Industrial District. You can go fast or you can go slow and take out all the guards, it's really your choice. Either way, when you get close, Oracle will give you a waypoint directly to where you are going. Outside is a small stalker section. There are two snipers here, one on a really high tower and one on a lower tower. Just make sure you get the high tower sniper and then the low tower sniper. After that, it's a cakewalk really. Just wait for the enemies to come out of hiding and make use of your baterang and takedowns. They should fall in no time. Make your way inside. Inside, freeze the first guy and then try and take out the other two. It's a pretty simple battle but they do have access to a knife and a shield so watch for those. Steel Mill returns - x373x -------------------------- Look down over the railing and you'll see water. Throw a cryo bomb into the water to make a raft and then jump on. Use the batclaw to pull your raft along but make sure you let go and duck before you hit the wall. When you come out on the other side, use the bat claw to pull you towards the saws and then just jump up to the ledge above. Make a new raft on the other side and use the rings around the outside to stay away from the saw in the middle. Bring the raft to the far side and hop off again. Climb up and look through the window. Glide through the window to start the fight. Keep a finger on your baterangs and the other on your counters. Those will save you big in this fight. Use the baterangs on the people trying to get weapons and counter everything they throw at you, which will be a lot. And watch out for the armored guy. He's the only special type of enemy here. ..."And why did it end in a church!?" Best line ever! Go through the only door in the room and do a takedown on the unarmored guy. Then just stun the armored guy and take him down. Release the guy if you want but if you stick around for too long, he'll attack you. Blast a hole in the wall and go for a raft ride. Use the anchor points on the wall to pull yourself away from the saws and then use the other up ahead to pull yourself under the wall. On the other side of the wall, you will need to pull yourself back the way you came and off to the side. Get off the ice and onto dry land, then use the line launcher to get across to the other side. From there, take a right and make another raft. Climb up on the ledge ahead. This part is a little tricky. You need to throw a remote control baterang through the hole in the door ahead, have it fly through the sparking electricity in the next room and then it needs to turn around and go into the other door and strike the panel in the small caged in room. It takes a few tries and some practice. On the other side, make a raft and be on the lookout on the right for a ledge to grapple up to. Once you get there, look for a security panel. Hack that and a draw bridge will drop for you to cross. Cross the draw bridge and take a right. Head for the double doors and eventually go through them. Smelting Chamber - x374x ------------------------ This room is tough. You want to wait for someone to go under the gargoyle you start under. Climb up there and wait for an inverted takedown opportunity. After you get him, start hopping around. There's no real pretty way of doing this so just wait for people to separate themselves from the group before you drop down on them. Use the fire extinguishers so you can drop down and take someone out without being noticed. You'll have to use all of your tricks to get through this room. After you clear the room, there is a shuttered door in the Northeast. Open it and use the railings to cross to it. Go in and open the next door as well. Climb in the vent and into the next room. Go to the far end of the room and use the conveyor belt to get into the room with the guard. You can hop in one of the boxes (MGS?) and the conveyor belt will carry you around unseen. It won't take you out of the room though so ride to the end and do a silent takedown on him. Hop up on the ledge above to find Harley Quinn. Talk to her for a side mission. Then continue on behind her. Go under the small door into the next room and then take the door on your right. In the next room, if you can, disable the weapons of the two snipers up in the doorway. Then you can just approach and take out the three guys on the ground. Clean them up and then hop up and get rid of the snipers who will try ineffectually to shoot at you. Follow the arrows on the floor. Joker Boss Battle - x375x ------------------------- Punch him a few times, he's a push over. Then fight the guys who come in to help. Unfortunately, he throws every size at you. You have a one armed guy and a Titan in this battle along with little guys and the Joker. Try to clean up the little guys as best you can while staying on the move. I highly recommend using the Electric Charge on the Hammer guy. When it's just the two big guys and the Joker, go for the Titan. Hit him with the Super Stun and then attack him until you ride him. Use him to attack the one armed guy. Rinse and repeat until the Titan is dead, then take the one armed guy down and finally the Joker. Be sure to watch out for train cars coming randomly throughout the fight. They can do some decent damage. Catwoman - x376x ---------------- Climb forward and up onto the catwalk. You are headed toward Park Row. You'll find a few guys on your destination. You have an armored guard, a shielded guard, and gun guard. Focus on the guy with the gun, then the guy with the shield. The guy with the armor is easily countered whenever he strikes. Once you've dealt with them, go into the sewer. Run along the sewer, into the confiscated goods vault. Go into the next room and after she talks to herself a little, jump onto the ceiling and head into the next room. You want to find three guards and pick their pockets (not take them down). Head back to the control room and use the computer to unlock the door. Head back towards the vault door and clear the area. Just isolate your enemies and pick them off. Be sure to use the shortcuts in the stacks where boxes are missing. Head into the vault door and check the plant and the briefcases. You'll have to fight your way out. One enemy has armor and the other has a shield but otherwise they aren't anything special. There are six in total. Just make sure to use the space you have in here to your advantage. Now grab the briefcases and head out. When you're almost out, you'll have to decide between saving Batman and walking away with the briefcases. You get to choose. While there is a wrong choice, it is an interesting choice to make at least once and won't really set you back any effort. When you're ready, go save Batman. Crawl through the vent and you'll automatically make your way to the Steel Mill. ======================= Protocol 10 - x380x | ======================= Chasing Choppers - x381x ------------------------ When you regain control of Batman, make your way outside. After a long talk, start scanning choppers. Eventually you'll find the one you are looking for. Grapple up to it and steal the command code. From here, head all the way around the city to the Wonder tower. I highly recommend hitching a ride on a chopper when you can because you are pretty safe when attached to one. At Wonder tower, you want to head for the middle level (the one with the two Snipers). Deal with them as you will and then unlock the door there. Head inside. Processing Center - x382x ------------------------- Follow the hallway and go through the shuttered door. Drop down to the lower level and exit the far side of the room through the other shuttered door. Turn left and go through the door at the end of the hallway. Drop down and face the new enemy here. The stun baton enemies aren't difficult to understand but they can be a pain to deal with. Stun enemies can't be countered in any way and you can't attack them from the front or you'll be stunned. The only way to deal damage to them is by jumping over them and hitting them from behind. Deal with these three enemies. Once you are done with them, you'll be beat up by another group of enemies and you won't be allowed to react. Once you regain control, pay it all back. Beat them good. You've got a little bit of everything in this group so be careful. Watch for a gun, shield, and stun batons as well as occasional thrown items. When you clear this wave, the next wave will come with no weapons but one of the enemies is armored and there are plenty of weapons on the floor. Try to make quick work of them before they can get any weapons. Bounce the bozos and head through the manhole cover off to the side. Wonder Tower Foundation - x383x ------------------------------- Head forward and drop through the hole in the ground. Eventually you'll come to a ledge. Line Launch south and at the second gap, you want to shoot at 90 degrees to the left. Put explosives on the ground to blow a hole in the ground. Drop down in there and meet the intern in the next room. She'll tell you about all the guards (that you're probably already aware of) in the open room beyond. This stalker area is rather brutal. If you can deactivate a couple of weapons, use it on the two snipers on either end. The prime striking points are the gargoyles in the inner ring. Use them offensively but once you've taken someone out, head back to the outer ring of gargoyles and usually you'll be fine. Do be aware that the enemies have thermal goggles. Just be patient and stay on the outer ring and you should be fine. But don't forget you can still use some of these Gargoyles offensively too. Decode the elevator when the room is clear. Be aware that it might have multiple answers but only one of them is correct. Wonder Tower - x384x -------------------- Inside the elevator is another panel you need to hack to get it moving. At the top, hop through the ceiling and go outside, there will be enemies waiting to ambush you (don't take too long because they'll open the door). While the glass takedown looks great, I'd go with taking down one of the two stun baton guards because it will leave you in a better position. Just get moving around and use takedowns on the stun and armored guards and this should be a fast fight. Off to one side of the elevator is another panel to open the gate. Hack it and climb through the door. Slide around to the back of the building and from the antenna, grapple up above. Once you reach the landing, turn left and jump to the pipe on the side of the building. Follow that around as far as you can, and then you can grapple strait up and then you'll want to grapple again off to the side. Head back along the building and up the ladder into the elevator shaft. Run and Jump across to the far side landing (down one level). Head forward and take a right and you'll come back outside to a giant antenna again. Walk out and then tightrope walk on the wire. From about halfway along the wire, you'll be able to grapple up on top of the caged in walk way you just come from and from there you can grapple strait up above you. You'll be just outside of the elevator shaft now and in the back of the room, to the left will be another panel to hack. Hack that and it will open a door far above you. You have to be right under the door to reach it with the grapnel. Once up there, go through the hallway until you come to a dead end. On the right side a little ways up you will find an air vent. You want to take the lower path in the vent which will lead you outside. From here, you can get to the gargoyles. Observation Deck - x385x ------------------------ Start the battle by hanging off of one of the outside ledges and doing a ledge takedown. Use any neutralizing tools you may have (deactivate weapons, sonic baterangs). There are two ladders in the room, they always go up one and down the other. I found the best spot was by the ladder that goes up. If you go through the middle of the room, Dr. Strange can see you and will point you out so be mindful of that. Almost all of the dirty work will have to be done on the ground so make good use of crawl spaces and cover. If you are patient though, you should be able to catch a guard alone at that spot and do a silent takedown. However you go about it, there are five left (assuming you took out the guard by the ledge). When you are done, climb that ladder and go to strange's door. Hack the panel with an awesome password and then confront Dr. Strange. ====================== Immortality - x390x | ====================== Follow the marker. Be careful when you got to about 50 meters though because there will be snipers all over the area (we're talking about ten or so). Take your time getting rid of each sniper. You want to be very mindful of the lasers and where they are pointing. For the most part start from the outside and high up and work your way in to your waypoint and down. Again, be very careful about whom you are taking out. There should be NO lasers near the enemy you are going for and you might want to wait just a moment to make sure no lasers sweep over him. If it's clear, sneak up with a silent takedown. You shouldn't do anything other than silent takedowns because everything else will draw a lot of attention and you probably won't manage to make it back to a vantage point alive. After you've unraveled almost all of the snipers, drop behind the last two by the doors and take them out. Head inside. Clayface - x391x ---------------- Batman tells you right off what you need to do to defeat Clayface. Throw ice bombs at him. Hit RT/R2 twice to through one. Just keep tossing them at him and avoiding his attacks. He has a few attacks but they are painfully obvious when they are coming. He has a blade attack that is in close on the first swing and covers almost the entire area on the second. He also has a Hammer attack where he can squash you, an overhead leap that can cover the entire room, and an overhead swing that you can either dodge or use counter to dodge (you'll see the regular indicator above his head during this). He has one other attack where he turns into a ball which can be kind of hard to avoid if you're close to him so it's a good idea to keep your distance. So you'll dodge a lot. In between dodging you should just be hammering him with grenades. Eventually his life bar will run out and he'll be frozen. Go beat on him a little bit. Eventually, he'll thaw and he'll return to his attacks. He will be more aggressive and take less damage than before but he's only got one new attack this time. He will spin around and shoot little pieces of clay at your feet. Just keep dodging this and repeat what you did last time. Phase 3 is entirely different than the first two. Rather than fight clayface directly, you'll fight little clay creatures. You'll also notice two bars in the upper right. The orange bars are the creatures you're fighting. Once that disappears, Clayface will appear from the giant puddle of clay. You need to throw freeze blasts into his mouth. If you don't get it the first time, it will slow him down giving you a much easier time at getting it in his mouth the second time. This will lower the blue bar. But the more damage that you do to Clayface, the more minions he will send at you. The real tough part here is that the minions have an incredible reach so you need to be very attentive to countering. It may even by wise to do just that rather than attacking them. Drop four freeze blasts in his mouth and he's done for. ***End*** Or is it... Epilogue - x3xxx ---------------- Head back to your apartment. Once you get there, drop into the cage like you did before and approach your window. Then a fight will start. They are a pretty simple group of enemies. Take them out and head to the museum. When you get to the museum, there will be a few guys, one with a shield, in front. Deal with them, head inside and deal with the group in the dinosaur exhibit. A couple of them will have knives. Run down the hall, through the door and into the gladiator room. There's a good number of enemies here, a couple with shields and knives and lots of hammers and thrown weapons. Thankfully there are no Titans or guns so just keep moving and using your takedowns and you should be fine. Go through either door, up the stairs and through the door at the top. You'll be in the torture chamber now. You want to swing under the catwalk and head right. Climb through the grate into the caged room. Then you want to pounce up to the catwalk above and follow that path around to the north wing towards the armory. You can drop down and there will be a few enemies just down the hall. Be fast because they are packing guns but thankfully there's only three of them. Head into the armory to start a stalker section. This section is interesting because you can't get rid of all the guards. They keep respawning. Your only real target is Two-Face. Depending on where he is, you need to sneak up on him in a different way. If he's on the bridge (like when he starts), you need to get over and hang on the ledge and wait for a ledge takedown. If he's by the entrance walking between the two balconies then you need to wait for a clear shot to sneak up behind him. You can also catch him on the lower level. He will walk around the Mammoth in the center. It's rather hard to catch him here but if you can get around behind him for a silent takedown, it'll make finishing the fight a lot easier. The best method I've managed is to go to the back of the room so you're near the Mammoth's rear end. Climb up the ledge of the bridge so you are on the right side and wait to do a ledge takedown. Once you've done it, drop down, turn 180 degrees and then run forward and left into the alcove. There should be a vent here. Climb through it, take a left and run to the end and climb up into the vent. Come out the other side and try to make your way into the room and back up to the Gargoyles. With any luck, Two-Face will go back up to the bridge and you can rinse and repeat. Feel free to use a pouncing attack if that is what is convenient (for instance, when he's on the bottom floor). One you've finished with him, you are back to Batman and can roam the city completing riddles and side-quests. ============================ | | | Riddles | | x400x | ============================ Statues ------- Across from the museum and south is a building with a maze on it. This is also the same building where you can change characters. There are two generators and a switch on the roof and a ball in the cage. Use the generators to move the ball. Since each generator can move in two directions, you can move the ball in all four directions. The switch will open two gates inside. You just need to get the ball to the other side of the maze so you can retrieve the trophy. Court House - Halfway down the stairs to the holding area, turn around and look up. This statue should be above the doorway from the first floor. Riddles ------- Courthouse - Go in through the back door and into the court room. Immediately to your left is a boxed in desk with a gavel and two handguns. Scan the handguns. ============================ | | | Side-Missions | | x500x | ============================ Zsasz ----- You start this mission at the GCPD but you don't actually do anything until you receive your first call at the Museum. Riddler ------- NOTE: This will contain answers to Riddles, you've been warned. Head to the church and you'll be presented with a Riddle. The answer is Organ so scan the organ at the back of the room. Head to the Court House and back to where Two-Face was. Take out the thugs there and you will be presented with a number puzzle. You must line up the numbers so the bottom number is 275 and the right number is 325. After this, you'll be given a word puzzle. The answer, is secret. Mysterious Watcher ------------------ You will find him first across and to the left (south) of the GCPD building. He will talk to you and leave a symbol on the ground. Scan it. ============================ | | | AR Training | | x600x | ============================ Grapnel Upgrade --------------- Level 1 ------- The first training involves simply gliding through the 5 rings. Just run off and glide and turn left and right as needed. Level 2 ------- This level requires you to dive bomb. Glide through the first ring and while you are above the second one, hit the RT/R2 to dive bomb strait to the bottom. If you hit one, you should hit the others. Level 3 ------- This is a little tricky. Fly over the column of rings and dive bomb but as soon as you hit the bottom most ring, return to a regular glide and continue forward and slightly right to the next ring. Make sure you pull back on the stick so you climb a little bit after you dive bomb. You have to make it through this ring and one more beyond it to finish. Level 4 ------- So fly over to the first column and dive bomb but as soon as you're done, pull up and head to the next column. The goal is to be high enough that you can dive bomb through the second set of rings. Do so and then you just have to glide through a couple of rings beyond the column (which will be slightly left of this column). Advanced Level 1 ---------------- This seems simple at first but turns into a nightmare. You have to glide off of the sign by hitting A and pull back on the stick so that you make the first ring. Then you have to dive bomb through the next two rings and let off close to the ground to hit the fourth. Getting the fifth is tough. When you let off of the dive bomb, you want to tap back just a little bit so you don't fly into the ground but you not too much or you'll fly into the wall above. Then you still have to maintain your flight through the tunnel without crashing. Try going lower than higher because the curved pipes are easy to crash into, even if you think you won't. This will take a lot of practice to get. Advanced Level 2 ---------------- Start gliding towards the first ring and then Dive bomb as soon as you get to it so that you're going through the bottom part of the ring. You actually want to level out a little early and this should help you have control better once you get inside. Hit the second ring, go inside and hang a left. Be careful not to hit walls and there's an island in the middle before the last ring. Don't accidentally land on that. Advanced Level 3 ---------------- This is similar to Advanced Level 1. I start at the back of the crane so I have more time to get oriented. Jump off from the back and approach the first ring. Dive bomb through the first ring and when you're about half way to the water, let go of the dive bomb and correct yourself. Then just coast through the tunnel. The only thing that's tougher about this one is that if you fail, you are let off in a group of thugs so you need to pay attention. Advanced Level 4 ---------------- For this, you need to glide forward, dive bomb and do a 180 at the same time, level out and coast backwards. How you actually do this is that you want to glide towards the first ring but start turning left just before you Dive Bomb. You want to stop pushing left when you are about half way through your turn and then quickly pull back on the stick and stop the dive bomb. If you manage to get under the bridge then you're golden. ============================ | | | Gadgets | | x700x | ============================ Legal - x900x ------------- Copyright ExtremePhobia (Brandon Fusco) 2011, all rights reserved.
