    Hey Folks,

    NOTE: My achievement popped when I completed Shark Bait, which would have been 26-stars for me. Since the same thing happened to my Catwoman and Nightwing achievement, I am going to assume that one (or more) of the previous challenges did not count for Azrael, except I went bottom to the top this time.... Please comment if you have the same issues.

    For this Achievement, you need to earn 21 stars as Azrael, which is actually quite simple with all the AR challenges that Arkham Knight has to offer. You should be able to unlock this by doing the Combat or Predator Challenges. You do not need to 3-star the challenges, just accumulate 21 total stars.

    Combat Reminder/Hint: Environmental Takedowns are a x100 multiplier, so use them if available on a high combo. Also, for getting a freeflow perfection(never breaking your combo) you will score your strike counter multiplied by 100 at the end of the round. (22 combo x 100 = 2200 bonus)

    A Hint as Azrael:
    -Azrael does have the destroy weapon ability, so use that to your advantage when fighting riot shields and stun batons. Picking up a baseball bat of the ground (cn_X+cn_A) will still allow you to wail on as many thugs as possible which I found very useful in the combat challenges.

    You can play the following challenges to get 21 stars(my stars are in parentheses):

    -Shark Bait (3 stars)
    -Precinct (3 stars)
    -High Interest (2 stars)
    -Flying Grayson (make sure to use environmental takedowns) (3 stars)
    -Feline Frenzy (The baseball bat is very helpful here) (3 Stars)
    -Newton's Cradle (3 Stars)
    -Teen Titan (3 Stars)
    -Combo Master (3 Stars)
    -Tower Defense
    -Azrael's Atonement (3 Stars)

    -Stage Fright
    -Sky High
    -Financial Crash
    -Smash and Grab
    -Terminal Velocity
    -Revive and Shine
    -Under the Pale Moonlight

    That's a total of 60 Stars, so play at your strengths, and don't stress out too much.

    Happy Gaming!cn_guide

    WhyattThrashNote: Only 24 stars are available without buying DLC. Also, some of the achievements from the title update require DLC to unlock so bear that in mind if you care about completion percentage and aren't interested in buying the DLC.

    There is a simple and easy way to play:
    'Batmam', 'Nightwing', 'Azrael' and 'Batgirl' can use cn_LT + cn_Y + cn_X to use the 'Combo Batclaw'. During this process, the character will be in a time that cannot be hurt. This skill can be used repeatedly. After each use, the 'Combo Meter' will increase by ×2, when the value reaches/above x5 can use 'Special Combo'.

    'Robin', 'Catwoman', 'Harley Quinn' and 'Red Hood' can't use 'Combo Batclaw' but you can use cn_Bcn_Acn_A to use 'Aerial Attack', which allows you to get a ×2 'Combo Meter' just like 'Combo Batclaw'. But you will still be hurt before the end of this process, it is recommended to dodge once after each use. This method can be used with 'Beat Down' (cn_Bcn_Xcn_Xcn_X). This method is also applicable to 'Batman' and other characters.
