Injustice 2 is a fighting game that was released on consoles and PC. It’s the sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us, which was critically acclaimed for its gameplay mechanics. We’re here now with a tier list of the best fighters in this new release, so you can use them more effectively in combat.
The top three tiers consist of Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman respectively who are all considered as heavy hitters with high health points and strong damage output. On tier four we have Catwoman, Aquaman, and Black Adam who are very good at zoning out opponents by using their abilities well.
They also have some great supers like Catwoman’s whip-cracking or Black Adam’s lightning bolts to keep opponents at bay. At the bottom of our top ten, you’ll find Cheetah, who’s one of the fastest characters in the game. She has many projectiles and is also good at taking damage. The next character on our list is Cyborg, who can be very useful if you are looking for a well-rounded fighter with strong ranged abilities.
Below we have created an A to Z tire list of Injustice 2 –
Aquaman – Although Aquaman can be considered a bit of an underrated pick, his specials actually pack quite the punch. He’s one of the characters who can effectively defeat opponents at long range without even touching them.
His combos require some practice but they’re worth learning if you want to beat your opponent more easily.
Catwoman – Catwoman is the fastest character in the game, and she’s pretty good at mixing up her opponent. She should always try to dodge long-ranged attacks and instead go for short combos.
She can also use many ranged attacks thanks to her whip and other projectiles like bolas or caltrops. Catwoman is a very versatile fighter but she should refrain from using heavy attacks because they are very slow.
Superman – Like other heavy hitters, Superman is amazing at dealing damage and has great survivability. All of his combos are effective both on the ground and in the air, which means you should always try to open up with a leap or two before pummeling your opponent into submission.
His heat vision is excellent for both ranged and melee battles but can be easily blocked. It’s also possible to reflect this skill back at Superman using the right timing, which will cause him a lot of damage.
Wonder Woman – Wonder Woman is another heavy hitter with good zoning skills. Most of her combos are effective in close-range fights, but she can deal a lot of damage at long-range as well.
Her shield can be a great tool for avoiding projectiles, especially the ones that aim directly toward you. This makes it easier to use Wonder Woman’s super meter and unleash some devastating combos.
Black Adam – Black Adam is the only character in tier S who is also good at both ranged and close-ranged fighting. This means that he can easily switch between these two styles to keep his opponents guessing.
His most powerful skills are his lightning bolts, which can be very deadly if they hit opponents while performing combos. Black Adam’s specials are also pretty strong and will be able to take down any opponent who gets too close.
Green Lantern – Green Lantern is an excellent character to play if you want a well-rounded fighter with good abilities against both melee and ranged opponents. His combos are quick and can deal heavy damage, but he also has some projectiles that make it easier for him to attack opponents at long range.
His ground game is strong thanks to the Banishing Ray, which can be used to deal fast damage to opponents who are standing next to him. The best way to use Green Lantern is by keeping your distance and waiting for your opponent’s mistakes so you can pounce on them with quick combos.
Starfire – Starfire can create a lot of pressure for your opponent at the beginning of the match by utilizing her projectiles. She’s also quite good at taking damage, which is something you’ll need in many fights.
Her ranged attack combos are hard to pull off but they do lead to great results when done right. Keep in mind that Starfire doesn’t have many high-damage combos, but the ones she does have are very effective.
Scarecrow – Scarecrow is a very good close-ranged fighter, but his true power comes from zoning his opponents. The fear gas projectiles are perfect for keeping your opponent away from you while making it easier for Scarecrow to follow up with some combos.
His other skills are also great for dealing damage, especially the stinger move which can be used to stop opponents in their tracks. Scarecrow is very difficult to play against, especially if you’re at long range.
Bane – Bane’s strength lies in his powerful attacks and the way he can keep up with his opponent’s speed. He also has some useful ranged skills that are great for keeping your opponent at bay while you deal damage from afar.
Although his combos are slow, they can deal a lot of damage and also help Bane to restore some of his health. His slower speed and heavy attacks make him vulnerable to players who like quick combos and lots of mobility.
Flash – Flash can be both effective at long range and in close-ranged combat. He’s also the only character in the game that has a speed advantage over most other fighters, which makes him very hard to hit sometimes.
Flash is great at combos, but his real power comes from his powerful attacks like the punch and uppercut skills. These two moves can stop most other characters in their tracks and deal a lot of damage, especially when Flash uses them at the same time.
Atrocitus – Atrocitus relies on his rage powers to deal a lot of damage from close-ranged combos. He does have some projectiles that can help him keep his distance, but he deals a lot more damage when you’re able to get up close to your opponent.
His skills are also quite strong and they provide Atrocitus with a lot of ways how to stop his opponent in their tracks and deal some good damage. This makes him a very tough opponent to beat, especially if you like to keep your distance.
Cyborg – Cyborg is a character with slow but very powerful attacks. He can deal good damage from combos and even cause opponents to flinch in place, making it easier for him to follow up with more combos.
Although he’s not the fastest fighter when it comes to mobility, his punches and beam attacks are great at keeping opponents away from you. His only downside is the fact that he doesn’t have a projectile attack that can help him from longer ranges.
Flash – Flash has lots of projectiles that make it easier for him to deal damage from long range. Although you’re best using his speed to stay as far away as possible, he can also deal some good combos up close.
Sub-Zero – Sub-Zero is another character that relies on his projectiles to keep opponents at bay. When dealing damage up close, you can also use his freezing moves to stop your opponent’s movement.
His combos are all quite powerful and deal a lot of damage, especially if he can catch his opponent off guard with the latest uppercut move. His biggest downside is the fact that Sub-Zero’s projectiles are not very powerful.
Enchantress – Enchantress is the only character so far who can use her pets to help her deal damage. She has three different pets that provide her with some unique ways how to deal damage, whether it’s from projectiles or melee attacks.
The downside of playing Enchantress is that she doesn’t have any long-ranged moves at all and she does lack powerful combos, which makes it harder to deal lots of damage.
Joker – Joker’s strength is the fact that he’s very unpredictable and his skills are great for catching opponents off guard. He deals a lot of damage from close-ranged combos but also has some projectiles that can help him keep his distance.
However, he does have a slow movement speed and is quite vulnerable when it comes to taking damage. Joker can also be quite hard to master, especially if you don’t know how his skills work.
Cheetah – Cheetah is a good character but her special abilities are not very useful in the game. Her skills are strong and she can deal some high damage from combos, but most of them also require her to be closer to the opponent.
If you want to play Cheetah your best bet is to rely on her speed in order to stay as far away as possible. She’s a good fighter, but she has a few issues with her skills and combos.
Swamp Thing – Swamp Thing’s strength is that he deals lots of damage both up close and from afar. He does have some slow attacks but there are more powerful combos that deal a lot of damage.
Although he doesn’t have a projectile attack like Cyborg, Swamp Thing can deal lots of damage and ensure the enemy stays in place with some powerful combos. The only thing that’s preventing him from being an A-Tier character is the fact that he lacks some abilities when it comes to mobility.
Black Canary – Black Canary doesn’t have many combos that can be used in order to deal lots of damage. She does have a projectile attack but it’s not very powerful and she lacks other moves that would make her a stronger fighter.
If you want to practice with Black Canary, your best bet is to try and spam her bolts while staying far away from the enemy. She’s a very weak character and doesn’t have many good moves, so it’s best to go another route.
Captain Cold – Captain Cold is very slow when it comes to movement, which is the biggest downside of playing him. He does have some powerful combos but they aren’t strong enough in order to deal lots of damage.
All in all, Captain Cold’s skills are quite underwhelming and he doesn’t have any good projectiles that could help him keep his distance from the enemy. You’re much better off choosing another character to play within Injustice 2.
The characters in Injustice 2 are unique, which means you’re not limited to playing with only one fighter. It’s best to go with the ones that you find more interesting even if they don’t have many combos or are quite hard to use up close.
No matter what character you choose, make sure that the others can deal lots of damage from far away and can deal with most enemy fighters. These are the characters that will help you win every battle in the game so make sure to pick them before starting a new match.
Of course, keep in mind that some of these might not suit your playstyle or even have abilities that might be better than others. It’s all about getting used to some combos and special abilities and eventually, you’ll find out which character you like the most.
