Injustice 2 Gear and Customization Guide
Injustice 2 has a pretty robust gear system that can greatly change your character's looks and stats. Sometimes you might get rare gear with augments or set bonuses. You also get better gear as you level your character.
There is a lot that goes into the gear system, so I'm going to go over everything you need to know.
Injustice 2 Gear System Basics
First, let me go over the stats.
- Strength: The amount of damage your normal attacks and combos deal.
- Ability: The amount of damage your special abilities deal.
- Defense: The amount of damage you take from your opponent's attacks.
- Health: The max amount of health your character will have.
Each piece of gear can raise 1 or more of the above stats, so that is something to look for when deciding which gear you should equip.
Augments and Set Bonuses
Sometimes, a piece of gear with have augments and/or set bonuses.
Augments are extra bonuses you get for equipping gear. Some examples of these would be: extra profile/character exp, inflicting more damage against certain characters, and increasing the amount of credits and guild credits you can earn.
Set Bonuses are extra benefits you get for equipping multiple pieces of gear in the same set. These usually offer bigger bonuses, and you get those when you equip 2,3, and 5 pieces of the same set.
You can also unlock Ability Modifiers for characters. These will change current abilities or even give you new ones. One example of an ability is the Confetti Cannon for Harley Quinn -- which replaces her Pop Pop ability with a short range Confetti Cannon.
Other abilities can add bonus effects, such as Poison to Harley's cupcakes. Robin, for example, gets an ability that changes his sword into a staff like Nightwing.
Regenerating and Transforming Gear
If you get a piece of gear that you really like, you can keep it forever if you want. There are 2 methods for doing this -- Regenerate and Transform.
Regenerate allows you to reroll the stats of your current piece of gear AND bring it up to your character's current level. You can also choose to keep the old stats if you wish.
If the piece you regenerate is lower level, and you choose to keep the old version, it will NOT have the level increased. You must select the new version to increase the level, then you can try regenerating it again.
This should be used mostly for getting different stats, or bringing set pieces up to your current level.
Transform is purely cosmetic and requires you to use Source Crystals. You can keep the stats of your current gear, but make it look like another piece of gear.
This is great because you can makes your character look exactly how you want by doing this. I suggest only doing this on level 20 (max level) gear that you don't plan on switching out.
A.I. Battle Simulator and Gear
Gear is also important in A.I. Battle Simulator, so it is sometimes a good idea to make different sets when fighting in that mode.
When you select an A.I. loadout, you can also decide how your character will act during a match. If you go to the second screen during loadout customization, you can adjust the 60 points however you'd like.
You can choose to make your character focus more on close-range attacks, stay far away for ranged attacks, try to do long combos, and more.
Sometimes you will get gear for someone you don't use, or a bunch of extra gear. The good news is that you can sell all of this unwanted gear.
You even have a chance to get Regen Token when you sell gear, so it is a good idea to clear out your inventory every once in awhile. I've gotten over 2 tokens so far just selling gear I will never use.
That's all I have for the gear system and customization in Injustice 2. Let me know if you have any questions! And be sure to check out our other guides for further help with the game:
