    Achievement Name: Catch (5g)

    Description: Find someone to play remote Batarang catch with

    This is a very simple and easy to get achievement. The person with which you need to throw the remote Batarang at is the ‘Unknown’ hooded character you meet (and subsequently receive the ‘Watcher In The Wings’ side mission from). The best time to get this achievement is right after rescuing Vikki Vale from Joker’s snipers after her plane crash, the spot where Batman takes her is directly opposite where ‘Unknown’ is standing (on the roof of a building). Simply throw the remote Batarang at him and he will catch it.

    Snow MarleyIt is missable, but you can do it also in new game+. If you'll miss it there again, you'll need a new save

    To make it any easier for us gamers, just watch this video.

    After just meeting 2 Face for the first time in the court-house. Go outside on the balcony above the front door and look across the street. Throw the remote batarang at him and he will catch it. Pling....achievement unlocked.

    PrimeBigTimeDidn't work for me outside the courthouse. Tried 20 times from all angles. May be glitched or possibly can only be done from the balcony as you indicated. May be why you got a negative but that wasn't me.

    ZordnilHaving just started the game i didnt know you had to equip the remote batarang first so all my throws would miss. Your video showed how to do it, thanks!

    Strange that no other guide details how to be able to hit what you're aiming at.
    Thumbs up from me, but maybe put it in text too?

    The "Someone" is the "mysterious [hooded] figure watching" you in the Watcher in the Wings side mission (available after your initial visit to the Courthouse). Simply hit him with a Remote Batarang [LT>+RT]. If done correctly the achievement will unlock immediately after he catches it. Here is a map of his four locations. Note: This achievement is missable. If you get too close to him you will trigger a cut-scene and miss the chance. You'll have four opportunities throughout the game; the first being immediately after the Courthouse, but your best bet is to just avoid landing on the roof he is standing on. Easily done by accident if you are unaware of his presence/locals. If you have already completed this side mission, it can also be acquired in NG+ mode (unlocked by completing the main story) or alternatively you could start a new game (it doesn't take long to get back to the Courthouse, about 15 minutes).

    AvataYes, right after you visit the courthouse (again).
