On February 2 – Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang will be unleashed into the streets of Metropolis, with the impossible task of defeating the world’s greatest superheroes in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
In the latest episode of our Suicide Squad Insider video series, we give you an in-depth look at the customization options that allow you to personalize your experience and bring the chaos any way you want.
If Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang are to have any chance against a corrupted Justice League, they’re going to need a little help from their friends. Although reluctant colleagues might be more accurate, Amanda Waller has forcibly enlisted a whole team of misfits to support, assist, and power up Task Force X, whether they like it or not.
While he is a long way from the mean streets of Gotham, Penguin has still managed to make a name for himself in Metropolis as the authority on anti-Metahuman weaponry. Need a punchier shotgun, a more explosive grenade, a bendier boomerang? Penguin’s got you covered.
Mechanical genius Toyman is a self-confessed Superman super-fan. Which is what makes using his skills to help defeat the Man of Steel even more painful. Still, no time for moral grey areas with a bomb in your neck, which is why Toyman will help the Squad tinker, customize, and optimize their weapons. From bonus critical damage on your sniper rifle, to extra Shield Harvest chances on a tanky build, it’s clear Toyman isn’t playing games.
And the most surprising member of all… Ivy! After Poison Ivy’s demise at the hands of Scarecrow, she has been reborn and captured by Lex Luthor. She then escaped and is now using her knowledge of plants to create elemental weapons for the Squad. Despite having no memories of her past life, she remembers how to make some mean spores, as she can set enemies ablaze, freeze them to the bone, or electrocute an entire horde, guaranteeing critical hits against them.
All of these support characters and their gameplay features provide a deep and rewarding level of customization to your builds in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Through the use of talents, weapons, and gear, you can play the game in totally different ways as a close-range menace, dealing out brutal shotgun blasts and melee strikes, or a tactical sniper delivering devastating headshots.
The only thing that Harley Quinn likes more than explosions is bigger explosions. And explosions don’t come much bigger than with the BAAANNNG! grenade. While it delivers an earth-shattering blast, it limits you to only carrying one grenade at a time. However, Harley has a couple of tricks up her sleeve to make up for this. Like the Bullet Propelled grenade, a devilish flavor of SMG that triggers the explosion of whatever grenade you have equipped on a critical hit. Or the Prison Piñata, a Legendary melee weapon that makes Shield Harvest kills drop grenade ammo. And the gift that keeps on giving… Nesting Doll. A grenade that has a chance to spawn another grenade on every grenade that hits enemy. Brainiac’s army won’t know what hit it… (It will be several grenades).
Deadshot prefers a slightly more professional approach to eliminating Terminauts. With his trusty jetpack he can create a vantage point anywhere in space, which gives him just the right angle to start hitting headshot after headshot with The Cooler, a sniper rifle that freezes enemies with a critical hit, leaving them locked in place for the rest of the Squad to hit a shot. If you want to amp up your lethality a little more, the Paint Bomb grenade increases your critical damage against every enemy hit. And if you need to really send your damage sky high, the Shooting Star modification for his jetpack doubles your critical damage after being airborne for five seconds.
To have a snowball’s chance in hell against a corrupted Justice League, the Squad is going to have to learn some teamwork skills. And for once, Captain Boomerang is ready to work as a team and tee up some bad guys for the rest of the Squad. Combined with The Great Suspender, Boomerang can unleash the power of the Speed Force boomerang, launching enemies into the air and sending them into slow-mo for a couple of seconds. Once up there, you can ensure they’re totally plucked with the Turkey Shoot, an augmented shotgun that does massive damage to slow-mo enemies. This will prove Captain Boomerang is a team player. And he doesn’t have a body odor problem. Unrelated, but he’d want you to know.
This King Shark build will have you crashing into the action like a tidal wave, leaving destruction in your wake. With his traversal mod Give Tribute, Nanaue will instantly turn any enemies he dive bombs into shield harvestable status, allowing him to overcharge his Shield and seriously tank up, with Harvest Rain, a variant of his trusty combat knives, that massively increase his damage. This weapon is the perfect way to turn up the heat.These builds are just a taste of the personalized mayhem you’ll be able to unleash on Metropolis when Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches February 2 on PlayStation 5.
