How do I apply explosive gel to breakable objects that are out of reach?

  1. I'm sure everybody has noticed there are a lot of breakable walls you can't just walk up to and apply explosive gel. So how does anyone know how to break them?

  1. Notice that when you scan these walls, they say that they give with enough force, not necessarily explosive gel. Since Arkham City did away with the Bat-claw upgrade to rip down fake walls, you'll have to get a little clever. Sometimes, you'll need to use the zipline to kick straight through the wooden walls, sometimes you'll have to dive straight through the wall, that'll take a lot of practice. I just did one in the ceiling where you need to use the grapnel from underneath to break straight through.

  1. assuming that this mechanic is the same as the first one, you will eventually get an upgrade to the batclaw what allows it to fire four points, thus enabling you the leverage needed to simply pull the thing down by tapping A. I havnt gotten far enough to be sure, but again, this is how it worked in Arkham Asylum

  2. In the Industrial District, use the Electrical gadget to start the little train. The train will move forward and position itself under a fragil ceiling, climb on top of it; you can use your explosive gel on it.

  3. **Possible Gadget Spoilers**
    Pyromite is correct about the WOODEN walls, you can dive through them. Stone ones will still require the explosive gel. Stone walls by the water will require the Ice Grenade upgrade that you get after defeating Freeze. It allows you to freeze a chunk of water and then use it as a raft, so to speak. You attach the grappling hook to nearby metal rings to pull yourself around and you can pull it up to the doors and plant the gel. For walls that are above ground, I haven't tried it yet, but there's also an upgrade for the line launcher that will allow you to walk on it, rather than just zipline. I'm assuming you could plant the line to the higher (out of reach) breakable wall, and then do the line walk to plan the explosive.
    Hope that helps.

  5. For wooden walls, (Which consist of the majority of walls out of reach) you can simply glide head-on into them. Stone walls that are out of reach will always have a method of getting to them, be it be moving an object, or use the freeze bombs.
