  3. Why can't I get Variation Bonus x8?

Can somebody please tell me all the Variations of attacks you can do in this game? I've Platinum'd it before...

Right now I'm near the beginning of the game. I have the combo batarang upgrade. So when my combo includes all of the following:

Strike
Dodge
Counter
Cape Stun
Combo Batarang
Combo Throw
Ground Takedown
Combo Takedown

Shouldn't I be getting x8 Variation bonus on that? The only thing my combo should be missing is Combo Batclaw, but for some reason, I keep getting only 7x Variation bonus with this. Why?

Yeah I remembered correctly.


But for some reason ,the game isn't always recognizing that I'm doing that. I keep doing 8 different moves but only getting x7 bonus most of the time. One time I did it and got 8x variation bonus, but I don't understand how/why.

I've now unlocked everything. It seems to be a crapshoot whether or not I get x8 or x9 when I do all of the moves in a combo. I don't understand it.

The only thing I can think of that you might be missing is Critical Strike and Combo Batclaw. Good luck.
