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, with the exception of Atrocitus, but more on that later.

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.

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:
