My successful attempts at ''The Curtain Falls'' trophy

Jesus Christ, this was the trophy that prevented me from getting 100 percent in Batman: Arkham Knight for so long.

 

Took ages to get a good Freeflow Combo going. What I ended up doing was using Evade (X) instead of Counter (Triangle) because far too often I've had enemies hit me from behind.

 

Toughest trophy in the entire game. Crime Alley is a bitch too but it's slightly easier. Getting to Killer Croc with one million points isn't all too bad, just make sure you don't lose all your health and get a combo going even if you get hit a couple times.

I had so much practise with the arkham city challenges and did in under one hour 🤷‍♂️

But still cannot understand how to struggle with this. Catwoman was done on the first try.

This trophy is hard, but not unobtainable as long as you keep at it. I got it yesterday, so here is my advice:

 

I tend to save the easiest goals for the last in most games so it feels like a downhill jog instead of an uphill battle. Catwoman being my least favorite, started with her. I personally had not played the DLC yet so I did the story episode to familiarize myself with the moveset, then jump straight into Monarch. I didn't move on to the next character until I finished their Challenge Pack objectives and respective Hero/Rogue requirement, so you don't have to switch move sets. One thing I did not do, which I recommend, is to just play through all 4 rounds so you can see what you're up against. It will just lead to frustration if you master rounds 1 and 2 and then 3 you drop your combo because you didn't expect this or that.

 

You can use flip over enemies as much as you like, but only dodge away from enemies once. Counter when it's time to counter, if you go for a dodge or stun sometimes the timing isn't in your favor, better to just do what the game expects. But be alert because there are always exceptions. The game will not interrupt attacks that are required to defeat an enemy, so for example, if you stun an enemy you are open to an attack from behind, if you stun a guy with a shield, you'll be able to attack safely. This is essential to round 4's. And each character typically has a move that will be a godsend, Catwoman special trip combo to take care of shields in groups, Batman's weapon break to take shields out of play for good. Take out brutes first, if they are present, then the medics, then go to town on the rest.

 

Catwoman's round 4 is a few medics and an army of shield carrying goons. Nightwing's and Batman's are identical, 4 or 5 brutes with medics and shields. Robin's has less brutes and more shields.

 

It took me maybe 2 to 3 weeks of trying maybe an hour everyday to finally beat it with Catwoman. Then Nightwing was 1 to 2 weeks. Robin 2 days. Batman just 10 minutes. Seriously, if you work your way from hardest to easiest it seems like a breeze, you'll be adding offensive options to your repertoire instead of removing them.

 

Take a screenshot or save a video to confirm you got it when all 4 rounds are over. And do Crime Alley after Monarch, the tactics you practice and master here will make that one way easier.
