The Special Combo Whip Trip is one of the 3 Special Combo Moves used by Catwoman, the others being the Special Combo Takedown and the Special Combo Whiplash.

Animation[]

When executing the Special Combo Whiplash, Catwoman quickly trips with her whip, floors and deals damage to multiple surrounding enemies at once as she rolls on the ground. Most of the time at least one enemy in range will still be on their feet while all others are floored.

Gameplay[]

In Batman: Arkham City, the command for the Whiplash is the same as Batman's Special Combo Multi Ground Takedown, namely B + A on XBox, ○ + × on PlayStation and T on PC. In Batman: Arkham Knight, with the introduction of the Weapon Steal ability that occupies that command on console, its command was switched to Y + X on XBox, ▵ + □ on PlayStation and Alt + 3 on PC, which still coincides with Batman's aforementioned move.

The Whip Trip can trip multiple surrounding regular-sized enemies at once, even Armored Henchmen and shielded henchmen. It is ideal to thin out crowds, or open opportunities to use slow gadgets (such as the whip, which can be used on the last standing enemy) or moves (such as the Ground Pound).

Like the aforementioned Whiplash, the Whip Trip adds 1 combo multiplier, then 5 points per multiplier per hit enemy. It counts as 1 combat variation.
