Before I get started with games, I always like to know beforehand if there are missable achievements, especially regarding the storyline. For example, in Arkham Asylum, there was the Party Pooper achievement near the end, where you had to defeat all the clapping enemies from the Joker's party.

Are there missable achievements like this one in Arkham City? I don't mean things that are optional to complete in the first playthrough, like all Riddler Trophies or all upgrades, but achievements that are actually unable to be acquired without fulfilling certain criteria.

To clarify, I mean in the base game, not including the optional DLC like Catwoman and Robin.

From what I've seen and gained, there is maybe only one that is missable. However, you will have a second chance to get it if you go through a New Game Plus to get that achievement.

This one is not related to the main story, and is related to another achievement Mystery Stalker. You only meet a certain person 5 times during the game, and after that they are gone. You have to throw a remote controlled batarang at them.

Stop the clock is simply a side mission. Not missable. Catch is the only missable achievement. – deutschZuid Oct 28 '11 at 13:28
@JamesJiao Thanks, wasn't 100% if it was story related. Updated – Doozer Blake Oct 28 '11 at 13:31
batman can catch it himself and it will count. – user49590 Jun 4 '13 at 14:59
@user49590 - My recollection is that you canNOT catch it yourself in Arkham City. (This is different from the similar trochievement in Asylum.) – Shinrai Jun 4 '13 at 16:59
Reading this here drove me crazy, cause I can't remember doing it, but it seems like this achievement doesn't exist on PC:… – Sentry Jun 4 '13 at 22:07
