LEVEL 2 - Silent Takedown

Notes: This time, all three attacks need to be launched within one battle. Pick your targets carefully and do not let yourself be spotted by anyone.

Reward: 2500 experience points

LEVEL 3 - Unseen

Notes: First of all, you need to remember that the air attacks (combined with knocking out the enemy) will not allow you to complete a given encounter, without getting spotted. As a result, avoid such attacks. It is also a good thing to complete this challenge early, so you can reach the tenth level, of this category of challenges, still before you complete the game's campaign mode.

Rewards: 2500 experience points, new ability (Auxiliary Upgrades category): Sonic Batarang

LEVEL 4 - Bait and Switch

Notes: The action ends in success only if you distract an enemy who cannot count on the support of his colleagues.

Reward: 5000 experience points

Notes: It is a good idea to complete this challenge during one of the initial encounters with the bandits, because they are not too much of a threat then and you do not need to watch their moves that carefully.

Reward: 5000 experience points

LEVEL 6 - Takedown Variation

Notes: You do not need to pick any location in particular, because all of the sneak-attacks can be performed in any of the predator rooms .

Reward: 5000 experience points

LEVEL 7 - Head-On

Notes: To the extent possible, it is best to complete this challenge as soon as possible because further into the game, in the rooms that assume acting silently, there will appear elite enemies who are much more difficult to defeat in a direct combat. Of course, you should not forget about the correct performance of escapes after each successful attack.

Reward: 5000 experience points

LEVEL 8 - Perfect Vision

Notes: This challenge is very similar to the one on the fifth level, if you are spotted, you need to start the scene over again.

Reward: 5000 experience points

LEVEL 9 - Loud Takedowns

Notes: Remember that you need to escape to the nearby vantage points after watch loud attack, which limits the risk of being spotted and taking heavy damage. Just like in the case of the level 6 challenges, all of the predator rooms that you visit.

Reward: 5000 experience points

LEVEL 10 - Apex Predator

Notes: The high-risk encounters are available only further into the campaign but, you need to remember that you complete this challenge before you complete the storyline mode.

Rewards: 5000 experience points, new ability (Auxiliary Upgrades category): Sonic Shock Batarang

LEVEL 11 - Sonic Shock Batarang

Notes: To all intents and purposes, it is the test for the operation of the Sonic Shock Batarang ,and not a challenge per se. As a result, you can gain a lot of experience the easy way.

Reward: 15000 experience points.

LEVEL 12 - Always Different

Notes: Avoid taking out the enemies in any way different than takedowns, thanks to which you will avoid the situation in which you have cleared the room too early and, as a result, fail the challenge. Furthermore, you should attempt completing this challenge further in the game, because it is than that the higher-level predators appear.

Reward: 15000 experience points.

Notes: This challenge is much easier than it might seem, at first. To complete this task, you need to use the Remote Claw and connect two enemies, on two different balconies, with a single rope in such a way, as to make both of them wall after you give the rope a jerk. A good spot to complete this challenge is the main area in the Gotham Merchants Bank.

Rewards: 15000 experience points, Worst Nightmare tag.

World's Greatest Detective

The premises of all of the challenges from this category are identical, and they reward you for supplementing the database.

It is worth noting here that to reach the final, fifteenth, level, you do not need to supplement the entire database, but only 2/3.
