How to Use Special Moves, Combo Attacks, Character Powers in Injustice 2
Injustice 2 characters have a variety of moves they can perform, providing you know which buttons to press and in what order. The moves fall into four categories: Basic Attacks, Special Moves, Character Powers, and Combo Attacks.
Special Moves are unique to each character, and are based around the powers of said character. For example, one of Batman’s Special Moves is to to attach an enemy to the Batwing, and shoot them repeatedly with the gatling guns attached to the flying vehicle.
Combo Attacks are unique to each character, and revolve around equipment or abilities, as is the case with Special Moves. A certain button combination must be used in order to execute a Combo Attack, and each of these is different from character to character. Character Powers are also used in the same way, with each one being unique to the character using them. For example, one of Green Lantern’s Character Powers is to swing his enemy overhead using a chain. For each Character Power, you should consult the character moves list.
Character Powers are specific to each different character, and are charged up during the heat of battle, and can then be used for a certain amount of time by the player. The Character Powers can take the form of stat boost, like Superman and Wonder Woman, or it can be a special combat ability, like Batman summoning a swarm of bats.
