Injustice 2 Guide: How to Get Legendary Gear

Injustice 2's Legendary Multiverse just launched, bringing some sweet new Legendary Gear along with it! Here's everything you need to know about Legendary Gear!

Injustice 2 has been universally hailed by fans as a more than worthy successor to the original game -- featuring a stellar story with eye-popping facial animations and a challenging (but rewarding) combat system. NetherRealm Studios' attention is now focused on providing the community with regular updates in the form of new characters, new ways to play, and exciting new gear to use.

The sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Legendary Multiverse update recently rolled out, introducing all new Legendary gear to unlock in the new Legendary Multiverse in NetherRealm’s DC brawler. The fan reception hasn’t been as positive as you might think, however, due to the hoops players will have to jump through to unlock each piece of Legendary gear. Let’s take a closer look at this controversial update.

What is the Legendary Multiverse?

For a quick refresher course on what the standard Multiverse is, take a look at our Injustice 2 Multiverse Guide. In addition to the regular Multiverse and the Guild Multiverse, you now have the Legendary Multiverse available in the single player menu. The Legendary Multiverse is made up of several worlds -- one for each character in the game. There are currently seven worlds available, with more to come at an undisclosed date.

What is Legendary Gear?

Legendary gear is new a tier of gear that you can equip to your Injustice characters. Before this update, the available gear tiers consisted of white Common gear, blue Rare gear, and gold Epic gear. Legendary gear is represented by the color red.

Each character has one piece of Legendary gear, and it is specifically for the Accessory gear slot. There are also no random rolls for Legendary gear, so every piece of Legendary gear will have exactly the same base stats across all characters.

What makes each piece of Legendary gear awesome is that not only does it look really cool, but it also applies augments to the characters, giving them access to unique and powerful abilities that cannot be earned any other way.

What Legendary Gear is Currently Available?

As NetherRealm Studios has remained tight-lipped on what each character's Legendary Accessory is, we won't know what they are until they are unlocked and shared by the Injustice community. Of the seven pieces of Legendary gear that are currently available at the time of writing, only 3 have been unlocked and revealed.  It's actually quite astounding that even those 3 have been unlocked so quickly, due to how difficult they are to unlock.

I will continue to update this with more information as it is revealed, but for now here is what we know.

Batman: Gotham's Most Wanted Utility Belt

The augments for this Legendary Accessory are:

  • New Tech: Batman can triple jump forwards and away.
  • Battle-Rangs: Increases Batarang damage by 10.00%
  • Mechanized Swarm: Increases damage of Mechanical Bats by 50.00%
Cheetah: Relic Hunter's Sharpened Pike Tip

The augments for this Legendary Accessory are:

  • Blood Trail: Cheetah has a chance to make her opponent bleed from claw attacks.
  • Evasive Maneuver: 2.00% chance when being comboed to automatically escape.
Bane: Venom of the Cavidad Obscuro

The augments for this Legendary Accessory are:

  • Straight Damage: Bane no longer has negative debuff effects when Venom wears off.
  • Venom Rage: When reduced to 5.00% health or lower on the second health bar, Bane gains 20.00% increased damage.
Wonder Woman: Legendary Sword and Shield

During the Watchtower Stream that revealed Legendary Gear, we got a glimpse of this gear piece in action -- as well as a brief description of its Augment from the devs.

When activated, Wonder Woman's Legendary gear will allow her to receive two random buffs instead of the usual one, which could allow her to dish out a ton of damage. 

One of Wonder Woman's Legendary gear unlock requirements are that the player needs to have played 7,000 minutes with the character. As this is 116 hours worth of game time, it's no wonder this gear piece hasn't been unlocked yet.

Blue Beetle: Legendary Scarab

Blue Beetle also had some of his gear teased during the live stream. Although NetherRealm didn't give an in-depth description, it was fairly obvious how Blue Beetle's Legendary gear would function.

Blue Beetle's unique gear ability allows him to use both projectiles and his trait at the same time, which was previously impossible to do.

Swamp Thing: Legendary Club

Swamp Thing's Legendary Club will apparently allow him to make use of an air dash to mix up his play style. That's about the extent of the information available at present, so we'll wait and see what other benefits his gear piece will lend to the Green protecting character.

Atrocitus: Legendary Dex-Starr

Atrocitus' Legendary gear and its ability remains a mystery, and I will update this entry as soon as more information comes to light.

How Do You Get Legendary Gear in Injustice 2?

Similar to the normal Multiverse worlds, each world in the Legendary Multiverse will have 3 events that you can play. To be able to take part in each event, you will need to meet the requirements that are listed when a specific event is highlighted. Once the requirements are met, you can complete the event -- and once all 3 events are completed, you are rewarded with that character's Legendary gear.

It may sound easy, but I assure you that it's no walk in the Batcave. One of the requirements for each character is that you sacrifice 250 Epic gear pieces. This is most players' main gripe with conditions for getting Legendary gear because of how rare Epic gear already is. For help with amassing all those Epics, check out our guide on How to Level Up and Get Gear Quickly.

That's all I've got for now in this Legendary Gear guide, but there are plenty of other aspects of the game to check out in your grind for these accessories. For more tips and tricks, you can take a look at our Injustice 2 guides to get the most out of this critically acclaimed fighter. Here are some to get you started:
