The overall rules of the challenge maps haven’t changed since the first game. I’d definitely recommend approaching them at the end, i.e. after completing the main story mode, side missions and finding all the secrets. There’s a total of 12 maps, though you need to complete them separately with each character.

The further part of the walkthrough included the two characters available in the basic game, i.e. Batman and Catwoman. Each of them has their individual mission, though played on the same maps. I’d recommend first completing the ones for Batman, as even the Extreme versions will be easier than those of Catwoman. There are three missions on each map, each with a bigger description in the tables below. Remember to first familiarize yourself with the maps and missions, aiming at completing the map as fast as possible. As a side note, remember that even after completing every mission on a given map, you will still need to eliminate the enemies to finish the challenge.

LIST OF MAPS – BATMAN

NAME

CHALLENGES DESCRIPTION

Meltdown Mayhem

1) Smoke Detector – You need to use a smoke pellet after Batman gets noticed and afterwards use the fact that the local enemies have been blinded and approach one of them from behind and knock him out.

2) Mind Your Head – You need to throw a Batarang at an enemy and afterwards quickly approach him and finish him off before he can get up.

3) Shock Tactics – you need to hit one of the armed guards with an Electric Charge, causing his gun to fire and therefore scare the one beside him. Of course you should attack groups of two or more, as only then you will succeed.

Police Brutality

1) Blast Zone – Spray the Explosive Gel on one of the destructible walls, wait for a guard to reach it and detonate the charge.

2) Knockout Smash – Approach the enemy from behind. Start off by pressing Y to silently take him out and afterwards X to finish him off fast (instead of waiting until his body is laid onto the ground).

3) Window Pain – Stand beside one of the windows, wait for one of the guards to appear on the other side and attack him by surprise (Y button).

Natural Selection

1) Weapon Jam – Use the Disruptor with the Jam Firearm to block the weapon of one of the guards. Afterwards, let him see you so that he tries to shoot you.

2) Aerial Assault – Attack an enemy from above, at best by gliding off one of the vantage points. After knocking him down, quickly finish him off.

3) Friends Fly Free – Use the Grapnel Gun to grab the bridge connecting the upper balconies. Don’t however climb up, instead keep hanging from the ledge. Wait for two guards to get beside you and attack them by surprise (Y) to throw them both through the balustrade.

End of the Line

1) Kick Off – Stand on the roof of one of the subway cars on the station. Wait for an enemy to appear on the opposite car, aim at him with the Line Launcher and start the ride, kicking him and therefore throwing down to the ground.

2) Scare Tactics – You need to scare at least one enemy, for example by using the Smoke Pellet or Electrical Charge. You need to act fast, appearing in front of your target by surprise. Therefore you can glide or jump out of the ground shaft.

3) Freeze Frame – Use the Freeze Blast to freeze an armed enemy and afterwards knock him out (Y).

Lost City

1) Grate Moves – You need to hide in the ground shaft, wait for an enemy to get above Batman and perform a surprise attack (Y).

2) Fall Guy – Stand on the lowest balcony and wait for a guard to appear on one of the higher balconies (or the ones adjoining the elevator). Grab him with the Batclaw and push over the balustrade.

3) Breaking and Entering – You need to stand beside one of the wooden walls, wait for an enemy to appear on the other side (Detective Mode will come in handy here) and take him out (Y).

Top of the World

1) Fire Hazard – Wait for an enemy to stand beside one of the fire extinguishers on the lower level. Throw a Batarang at the extinguisher and afterwards quickly approach the blinded enemy. Get behind his back and take him down (Y).

2) Confiscated Weapon – Approach one of the armed enemies. Use the Batclaw with the Disarm upgrade to pull the gun out of his hands. Afterwards, once the disarmed guard is pulled towards you, press X for a knockout.

3) Mined Your Step – Don’t eliminate the guard with proximity mines prematurely. Instead, wait for him to plant at least one. Afterwards you need to wait for an enemy to approach it and detonate the mine by using the Disruptor with the Mine Detonator upgrade.

Meltdown Mayhem (Extreme)

1) Armor Piercing – You need to eliminate the armoured enemy as the first one. Luckily it’s very easy and doesn’t require you to use Beat Down, as you only need to wait for him to get beneath one of the vantage points and use the Inverted Takedown on him.

2) Bringing Down the Roof – Spray the Explosive Gel on a destructible wall fragment. Wait for an enemy to enter the room below and detonate the charge.

3) Venting Anger – Hide inside one of the side ventilation shafts, wait for an enemy to appear and attack him by surprise (Y). Curiously, you don’t need to worry about opening the grate as Batman will break through it automatically while leading out the attack.

Police Brutality (Extreme)

1) Don't Touch That Dial – Neutralize the enemy with the Jammer as the last one. Therefore it means that throughout this level you won’t be able to use the Detective Mode.

2) Feet First – Stand on the balustrade of one of the higher balconies, wait for a guard to appear beneath you and perform a surprise attack on him (Y). You should of course wait and deal with one of the last enemies using this method, as Batman can be easily spotted by others.

3) Smash and Grab – Locate the vantage point with a glass ceiling fragment beneath it. Wait for a guard to appear in the room on the very bottom and perform a Inverted Takedown, breaking through the glass.

Natural Selection (Extreme)

1) Boom Box – Spray the Explosive Gel beside the crate from which enemies can take weapons. Afterwards alert one of the guards (e.g. by showing yourself or using the Sonic Batarang), therefore making him head for a gun. Stand in a place from which you have a god view on him and detonate the charge as he tries to get the weapon.

2) Chaos Theory – Stand on one of the vantage points, wait for an enemy with thermal vision goggles to appear beneath it and quickly perform an Inverted Takedown on him (Y), before he manages to scan the point.

3) Deep Impact – Stand on one of the vantage points and wait for at least two enemies to stand beside each other on the lowest level. Jump down and hold the right trigger to activate the Dive Bomb. Try to land beside the enemies and press B when Batman touches ground to create a Shock Wave. Notice – you will need the Shock Wave Attack to perform the last step.

End of the Line (Extreme)

1) Perpetual Motion – Start off on one of the higher balconies of the subway station, focusing your attention on the enemy who uses the ladder from time to time. Stand beside the ladder and prepare to use the Electrical Charge. You need to do it when the guard almost finished climbing onto the balcony you’re on.

2) What Goes Up – Check out the hints regarding the above (1st) challenge, as you can complete them both at the same time.

3) Don't Touch That Dial – You need to neutralize the enemy with the Jammer as the last one. That means not being able to use the Detective Mode throughout the whole level.

Lost City (Extreme)

1) Bullet Proof – You need to eliminate all the guards without getting damaged. Therefore you should complete the whole stage without getting noticed by anyone.

2) Switch Hitter – This mission is quite hard and I’d recommend trying to complete it on the highest balconies, the one adjoining the elevator. The idea behind this challenge is firing a line towards an enemy, hitting him while riding the line AND afterwards changing direction and doing the same with yet another inmate. You should probably take some time to prepare the whole thing and also make things easier by freezing one of the enemies beforehand.

3) High Speed Impact – Begin on one of the vantage points and equip the Remote Controlled Batarang. Aim at one of the enemies one the higher balconies, the one standing beside the balustrade to be precise. Throw the Batarang and make sure to speed it up by holding the right trigger. The enemy you hit should get sent flying and fly over the balustrade, but in case he doesn’t, wait for him to fully recover and quickly throw another Batarang.

Top of the World (Extreme)

1) Fists of Fury – You need to use Beat Down to eliminate one of the enemies (you execute it by pressing B and afterwards tapping X). It’s best to do it with the last enemy, therefore ending the level.

2) Human Cannonball – Wait for the enemies to stand beside each other and try to attack them by surprise, using the Remote Electrical Charge. Shoot at the enemy with the armour and with some luck he will fall into his buddies.

3) Cold War – You need to use the Freeze Cluster to freeze at least three guards at the same time. For obvious reasons you should try doing it in the beginning part of the level, making use of the fact the enemies gather in one place.
