NOTE: Monarch Theatre must be completed using Batman, Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman. There is not a tracking feature in the Achievements application for this achievement, so you will have to keep track yourself.
This achievement is pretty straightforward, but a bit hard. I actually did not find this one to be as tough as the "The Chill in the Air" achievement, even though "The Curtain Falls" requirements appear more difficult at face value. The most important part of pursuing this achievement is obviously not breaking your combo meter streak.You can get hit during this challenge, only if it occurs before you start your streak!
If you break your streak during the fight, restart. You can double check your progress by seeing if you receive the "Perfect FreeFlow" bonus at the end of each round.
The enemy layout for Batman and Nightwing are the same (standard enemies for the first four rounds, one medic in Round 2 and Round 3, and then two medics and four Brutes in Round 4.) The enemy layout for Robin and Catwoman are quite easier and I had no trouble completing their portion of the achievement, mainly due to the fact that Robin has to face only two Brutes, according to TEK5c Reginald
, and Catwoman has to face none, according to Bikelund
, in Round 4.
I have included some generic combat tips below.
Use Evade (
) often. It is very helpful and can be used to dodge the majority of the attacks thrown at you.
) is essential as well, but be wary of the Blade Dodge Takedowns. They can be useful for quickly dispatching enemies, but they also leave you exposed for easy hits if you miss the
button hold and releases. Use them at your own discretion.
In the last round, you will face Brutes that have either Blade, Electricity, or Shield abilities. Make sure to use a Combat Takedown (
when your combo meter is full) to efficiently take them out. As shinyshirthero
pointed out, it is important to isolate enemies on the outside of the fighting arena, because it is easy to get hit if you spend too much time in the middle.
I would suggest taking out enemies in the following order: (Thank Twobby
for reminding me)
Medics, Guns, Shock Batons, Shields, and generic thugs
I would also recommend knocking out the Brutes first since they can hit you quickly, but they're also not too bad to leave until the very end.
If you have any other tips or you spot any mistakes, let me know in the comments. Thanks and best of luck!
