How to Earn the Shock Til They Drop Achievement

This page will provide details for earning the “Shock Til They Drop” achievement in Gotham Knights.

How to Complete the Shock Til They Drop Trophy/Achievement

You'll find Regulator Shockers in crimes involving the Regulators.

To earn the “Shock Til They Drop” Trophy/Achievement, you’ll have to defeat 45 Regulator Shockers. This is similar to the Family Meeting achievement where you had to defeat 30 Godmothers. Like the Family Meeting achievement, you’ll want to leave this as late as possible, and hope you defeat all, or a large majority of them without having to go out and look for them.

If you still need some of them by the time you reach the end of the game, you’ll need to complete crimes, normal or premeditated involving the Regulator Faction. With some luck, a Regulator Shocker is amongst them. Here are some tips to help you locate them more easily.

Hover over premeditated crimes to see which faction is committing them, if it's the Regulators, you can be sure a Shocker is with them.

  • Open the map, and check the Premeditated Crimes around the area. Check under the Faction to see if it says Regulators underneath it. If it does, this means that you are guaranteed to fight Regulators in that specific crime.

  • The higher the difficulty, the more likely the chance to face them. At the end of the game, and post game, this difficulty can rise to Very High.

  • Normal crimes indicated with a white triangle can also have them, don’t neglect them.

Like mentioned above though, focus on the other long trophies/achievement first like Expert Crime Fighter as you may well finish it before you have to waste time looking for them.

What are Regulator Shockers

Regulator Shockers are the Minibosses in the Regulator faction.

Regulator Shockers are Minibosses inside the Regulator faction. These burly men have high health, and armored hard-hitting attacks. They are armored which means you’ll need to perform many Guard Breaks on them to defeat them. They are almost always backed up by other members from the Regulators, so you may want to take them out first which will make your life easier when you only have the Shocker to focus on.

They are weak to Concussive damage, so you may want to equip weapons that have that element attached to them. Batgirl’s Beatdown ability is especially strong against them, and a couple of them should be enough to take them down. Nightwing’s Shotgun Darts are also pretty good against them, as is his Whirlwind ability. Red Hood’s Barrage is also great due to its many interrupts, and finally, Robin has a couple of great methods in his arsenal. The first is his ability to perform ambush/Silent Takedowns on large enemies if you have the Turnabout ability unlocked. The second is his piercing attack, Bo Spin.
