In a fighting game, especially those with characters that have established histories and fan bases like the DC-skinned Injustice 2, everyone will have their favorite characters. As much as you might want to play certain heroes, the reality of the fighting game meta is that certain characters will generally come out on top given equal skill. That’s not to say that a skilled fighter can’t take one of the weaker characters and really make them shine, but going with characters that just have plain better stats for your playstyle may give you that little edge you need to keep on top of the game. We’ve compiled a list (courtesy of vg247) of the best Injustice 2 characters over a variety of categories so you can match your playstyle to the best characters available.

Strength

Strength determines the damage each character does with their basic attacks. Obviously gear can boost these stats, but this list shows the top-tier champions by base stats alone. Choose a character on this list if you want to pummel people to death.

  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Darkseid
  • Gorilla Grodd
  • Scarecrow

Ability

This list represents the Injustice 2 characters with the highest Ability score. While Strength determines the power of basic attacks, Ability represents the power of special attacks. Go with an Ability character if you want your damage to come mainly from your unique attacks rather than basic kicks and punches.

  • Aquaman
  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Batman
  • Black Adam
  • Black Canary
  • Blue Beetle
  • Brainiac
  • Captain Cold
  • Catwoman
  • Cheetah

As important as being able to beat down your foes is, staying alive through your foe’s onslaught in Injustice 2 is also crucial. The next two categories will give you a sense of the beefiest characters that will let you last as long as possible in the ring.

Defense

Defense determines how much damage you take while blocking. This list should give you an idea of the best blockers in the game.

  • Aquaman
  • Black Adam
  • Brainiac
  • Cyborg
  • Firestorm
  • Green Lantern
  • Supergirl
  • Superman
  • Swamp Thing
  • Wonder Woman

Health

This final category shows the characters with the highest health pools. After all, if you health bar in Injustice 2 is totally depleted, you lose. Picking a character with higher health is a good idea – especially if you’re newer to the fighting genre.

The top health pool in the game goes to Darkseid. No other Injustice 2 character matches him in this category, but in the interest of variety and lists we’ve included the second tier too.

  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Batman
  • Captain Cold
  • Catwoman
  • Deadshot
  • Doctor Fate
  • Gorilla Grodd
  • Green Arrow
  • Harley Quinn
  • Joker
  • Poison Ivy
  • Scarecrow

You’ll notice that many characters are featured more than once on these lists, some are featured many times. While there’s more in Injustice 2 tiers than simple base stats, it’s definitely a consideration. If you really have no favorites, maybe try going with a hero featured on multiple of our tier lists and see where that gets you. Are you guys enjoying Injustice 2?

It appears that many

are eagerly anticipating the launch of the highly anticipated PS5 exclusive, Stellar Blade. Shift Up, the developer, has shared a lengthy video showcasing the “secrets” found in the physical box of the game for PS5. From what we can gather, these secrets include a reversible cover/dust jacket and a download code for cosmetic items.

We must clarify that while we do appreciate the variant cover, it may be more appealing than the game’s standard art. However, it is not something we would typically classify as a “secret.”. However, what’s interesting is that Shift Up has confirmed through the comments section that this will be the case in all regions. Additionally, the visually striking action RPG will remain uncensored worldwide.

It’s refreshing to witness a developer going the extra mile for physical collectors, and it’s evident that the developer is determined to leave a favorable mark in the console realm. Stellar Blade is set to make its highly anticipated debut this Friday, April 26th, exclusively on the PS5.

New PS5 Patch Introduces Rare 40FPS Mode for Avatar Game

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has received an exciting update that introduces a new graphical mode, elevating the game’s visual experience. With a smooth frame rate of 40 frames per second and enhanced resolutions, players can now immerse themselves in even more stunning and detailed environments. Now downloadable on PS5 with the latest patch 3.2, this mode is compatible with 4K TVs that can handle up to 120 Hz. Before this update, Avatar PS5 only offered quality and performance modes. However, with this new option, players can now enjoy the benefits of both modes after downloading the 2.4GB update.

Throughout the PS5 era, 40fps modes have been a rarity, much to the disappointment of the hardcore community. Insomniac Games first introduced them in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and later added the feature to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. They also included it in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Other PS5 titles, such as Hogwarts Legacy, Lies of P, and God of War Ragnarok, also offer 40fps modes.

In addition to that, Patch 3.2 for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora brings along the following:

Worldwide:

  • Research Station Alpha now features a convenient Fast Travel option
  • The issue of controller re-mapping and resetting on game restart has been resolved
  • Addressed multiple instances of crashes
  • I corrected a few spelling errors
  • Addressed the issue of voice lines overlapping during dialogue

Primary Objectives & Optional Objectives:

  • [Main Quest: Shadows of the Past] This main quest is an intriguing journey into the depths of history. Addressed a bug that previously hindered quest progression in co-op mode

More bug fixes have been implemented.

  • [Available on all platforms] The rescued human characters no longer return to the Resistance HQ wearing masks
  • Available on all platforms. There is a noticeable improvement in the visibility of NPCs when they are at the edge of the Player’s vision
