Yes, I agree; that part was the most difficult for me when playing on Hard. It took me a number of tries to work out a strategy that worked for me.

 

I put down some fully upgraded explosive gel before the titan entered so that the thugs in the elevator would trigger it and get knocked into the electric fields. Try to get as many Critical Strikes and make use of Instant Takedowns to thin their ranks. I also was able to get the Titan to run (blinded) back into the elevator shaft he can down on and stumble around in there which let me take out more thugs. I also tried to get a few more hits in before I got on his back and got in some Rodeo Strikes (again, trying to strike the thugs into the electric fields if possible). Maybe others have some suggestions for you.

 

Ivy did not seem too bad in comparison.


 

hmm sounds good.i think i will try that.it sounds like u got lucky on that Titan part you described.i hope i get it too!thanx for strategy

How do u start a new game? I played thru on normal & would now like to play on hard but I only get the "contiue game" option from the menu. I'm going for the "100% Complete" trophy so dont want to start a new save file.

The only reason to start a new game is because you want to play through again on hard for the trophy.  If you want 100% complete...get all the riddles and combat and predator challenges on one of your saved games.

Agreed; Ivy is actually really easy to me, as long as you manage to avoid her attacks and kill the henchmen.

Thanks for the strategy - I've been stuck on this battle for literally weeks now and it's really frustrated me. I wil try some of these things out.
