    Below is a video made by BatmanArkhamVideos that shows all of the assault locations. Using the locations from the video I created a map that shows each of the 16 assault locations via an orange dot.

    After visiting all the locations, if some assaults did not appear (All will not appear in one fly though the city) then enter then exit a building to refresh the map.

    It is also suggested that when you are looking for assault to fly around in detective mode. In my experience it seemed to make the assaults more likely to appear.

    Doom SpudStone cold syx it still works after the game is finished, that's how I did it on both playthroughs recently. Just follow that map and fly around to each othe spots one after the other. When you've checked all of them, enter/exit a building and the map should be reset. It might work more reliably if you actually quit and re-enter the game after exiting the building.

    StrangeMovie145This is also helpful, just after getting the batsuit go to the left of the courthouse you'll hear Jack Ryder getting attacked, not sure if this is already on the map but it's something that players tend to forget as he is what starts the quest anyway.

    Assaults in Arkham City are defined by a political prisoner (innocent person) being accosted by an inmate. It'll usually be a guy in an orange jumpsuit beating on a guy in a parka. The best way to come across these is to keep your ears perked up for some guy yelling at somebody who is very scared of them OR just random sounds of someone getting beat up.

    These are very easy because you only have to fight one guy and he's never armed nor does he have any armor. In fact, you can pretty much always do a silent takedown if you sneak up from behind, but you really don't have to since the guy is so easy to beat.

    You'll find these assaults in areas with lots of alleyways like the Industrial District, Park Row, and the Bowery. They will pop up randomly so there's not much sense in actively seeking them out. Just do them while you're completing the millions of other things there are to do.

    If you happen to pass by an assault without realizing it, an objective marker will usually show up on your map for a certain amount of time if you happen to fly right over it. The objective marker is blank.

    You can keep track of your progress by going to the map and hitting X for Side Missions. It'll be under "Arkham Assault" and will show you what percentage of them you have completed. The achievement will pop immediately after you get the last one.

    FYI - You don't really get anything for these missions except XP and a grateful civilian.

    I got this achievement after finishing the main game and nearly every other side mission while i was rounding up the last 20 or so Riddler Trophies.

    When I was doing this again in New Game Plus, I had already finished the trophies so I had less reason to run around. That being said, A couple of the assaults wouldn't pop until after I had re-explored certain areas and beaten up leftover henchmen. The best example would be the museum. There are a couple of baddies left in there (make sure you check the War Room). Once I did that and left the museum, the last assault came up right around the corner to my right.

    If you have any info or suggestions that may improve this solution, please comment below. Thanks!

    I was missing several and this video helped immensly. Just go to all the spots shown on the map, and if there isn't one exactly there, chances are one will activate while you're close by. Its how I found the ones I was missing.

    Edit: I only had to use this during New Game +, they showed up just fine when I played through the first game.
