I'm having a hard time on NG+, maybe you guys can help. Namely on how to take out the armored guards with the signal disruptor packs in predator sections. How do I do this? I can't glide kick them as they just block it. They break free from silent takedowns. I try ledge takedowns but as my detective vision is screwed I can't see anybody and end up hanging only to be spotted before I can pull the guy off the ledge. Inverted takedown doesn't work either. The only thing I can think of is a beatdown, but the amount of time it takes to do leaves me a sitting duck to get shot up to all hell, and as it's NG+ I can only take a few shots at most. Even if I wait and isolate them it does no good.
And I was doing OK with the fighting in the beginning, but it's becoming a B!TCH now. There's a lot more variety to the enemies, the knife guys are very hard to spot until they're chopping you up, there's tons of armored guys, gun racks that they run to, and they throw a lot more objects. And they're faster and no counter icons to boot. I used to rely a lot on takedowns but am now finding I can't even get a four-hit combo started to be able to do one. Man it's kicking my ass. I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish it. I'm on the way to Raz's and am NOT looking forward to that big fight with Joker on the tracks later on.
