I am playing Arkham Knight, and I have only played a small amount of the main story. According to saved game selector screen, I have progressed 4%. I haven't picked up any upgrades or new gadgets or any abilities.
I decided I was interested in seeing if I could complete some of the AR challenges, and specifically I'm trying to pass the Crime Alley challenge. I'm pretty experienced with all the Arkham games leading up to this, so I feel I should be able to play adequately enough to compete in the challenges, so long as it is actually possible. However, in spite of many, many attempts, I can not get past the third stage.
There are some hints that maybe the game expects that you have more attributes in order to compete. For example, opponents become electrified, meaning you can't hit them without being shocked. I looked up on the web how to defeat them, and from what I gather, one needs to be able to take them down with a quick fire grappling hook. I don't seem to have that, though.
At the challenges designed for a fully equipped Batman after having completed the main story? Or is it that I am unaware of certain skills or features that I should be using against specific opponents?
