    There is only one place in the entire game where this can be done. As you progress through Administration pursuing everyone's favorite clown, you'll come to an area heading underground where you'll hear Joker on the intercom pretending to talk to a magazine about an interview. He'll say "I'll have to call you back, Batman's trying to beat me up", along with some other things. When you hear this, you'll know you're in the right place. Simply walk right, drop down, and commence the ass-whoopin'. There are 3 armored thugs that you must perform beat downs on (B, then X repeatedly). They net you about 25-30 hits each. The rest of the thugs will put you well over the 100 needed. Just take your time, be aware and ready to counter others behind you, and realize early on that your combo will stay intact (unlike the console big brothers) if you take a few steps to reach the next guy. If you mess up, just reload the checkpoint. It starts you right when Joker starts talking to the magazine.

    DaeryoonKeeping the combo going in this game is way worse than the retail games. This is insanely challenging and a ridiculously stupid game. And this seems to be the only spot to do it in the entire game. Good solution.

    M1ght33 J03You may want to do this without gauntlet upgrades. They reduce the number of hits to take somebody down, which means you may take them down prior to getting 100 hits.

    BrasshandeThe lagginess and general muddiness of the controls as compared with the full Arkham games is the main barrier to getting this achievement, with plenty of retries personally needed because Batman wouldn't turn round before throwing a punch and so breaking the combo, but the technique in this guide is most certainly the way to go about doing it

    Easiest and guaranteed way:

    After you hear Joker supposedely talking to the weekly comedy magazine you move right until the screen adjusts and the first guys start showing up on the right corner.

    What you need to do is to position Batman in that corner, with no guys behind him. To do that you'll probably have to jump over the last guy to the right. Once there's no one behind (to the right) Batman, you must start doing the beatdowns (cn_B+cn_X) on the first guy to his left. That way, every goon waits their turn to be beaten. However, every once in a while, one of them will try to move behind you. Once they do that, even if they are not totally aligned behind you, you can still jump over and position yourself as the first one on the right again and continue the beatdowns.

    If you mess up, don't finish the last guy and simply reload the checkpoint.

    Once the combo meter goes a little over 100 the achievement will pop.

    If this solution helps you in any way, you're welcome to give it a thumbs up and leave a comment.

    The other two solutions are spot on with backing yourself into the corner in the one place this achievement is attainable and beginning the ass-whoopings. But to make things easier on yourself, do a beat down on the first two thugs to get them out of the way, then continue to do the beat down combo on every enemy, fighting your way to the left and countering when necessary. This knocks out the standard thugs in five hits each and minimizes the total number of counters you will have to deal with. Seeing as the counter and combat systems aren't as responsive as the other Arkham games, this method makes nailing this achievement much, much easier. I freeflow combo'd the entire room and cleared it with a 123 hit combo without taking any damage. Also, try to get to this point as early as you can to avoid picking up gauntlet upgrades, therefore guaranteeing you get lots of hits. I had already picked up one gauntlet upgrade before I got there and could still unlock it.
