Default 2nd Playthrough with Batclaw Issue

Going to tag this one since the question may contain the infamous spoiler.

Make sure you go to the edge of the drop so Batman says "I need to get across". Then he'll send for the line gun. If you've already done that then i've no idea what's wrong.

Try walking to the gap which you cannot cross and you should get a cut-scene when Batman figures out what he needs.

I'm nearly off the edge facing the direction I need to go and he just stands without saying anything. Going to try and re-start the system but that's just odd.

I'm at a loss. In that room you can't do anything until you get the Batclaw. No problem on normal but now on hard nothing happens. Did I do something in the wrong order to not have that cut scene happen?

I have played through the game twice on hard, and have never come across this matter. Try clicking RB or what ever what ever it is on the PS3 to try and grapple onto the door...he might say something then.

Still nothing. Could the game be glitched? Haven't had any issues prior. Should I try and swap out the game? I can't see there being a problem with the game but I'm at a loss.

Try taking a run up.

Goto the far end of the room, and then keep hold of the sprint button as your reach the edge. That normally triggers an auto jump move, but in this case it won't be able to. It might trigger what he should say.

Also try doing that after leaving the game and loading it back up.

I had this same problem the other night. You need to destroy the tanks of Titian Toxin in the room with your explosive gel. The tanks glow orange if you use detective vision. I think the tanks are meant to be destroyed in the fight but the gel will do the trick.

I think the reason I was at a loss was in the first playthrough the tanks were destroyed in the fight with the Titans. And I was in and out of Detective Mode and for some reason never dawned on me to blow up the red vats. Knew it couldn't be something with the game as it's run fine since I got it two weeks ago.

Thanks alot saint. I knew someone on here could get me out of that one.

Good man, Saint

I had always had the Titans run into these during the fight, so thats probably why I have never come across this problem before.

Make sure you destroy the explosive gas tanks on the wall.
