Harley, King Shark, Boomerang, and Deadshot all come with three unique skill trees, where you can unlock various passive and active abilities. Let’s look at King Shark’s Talent trees and check out his playstyle. Here are all of King Shark’s skills in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League.

Every King Shark Skill, Talent, and Ability in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League

King Shark is all about massive vertical and distance leaps while barraging your enemies with heavy weapons and slicing them to bits. He has the highest health pool and the highest Melee damage potential in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League.

I’m focusing on him right now, and I really like his playstyle, where I can quickly switch from fight to fight with his jumps and stay virtually indestructible through damage reduction and Shield regen skills. Despite his size, he can also be quite fast in a fight, as he has three air dashes for maneuvering swiftly in mid-air.

This core playstyle is complimented by three Talent trees called Firepower, Strength and Dominance, and Powers of the Ancients. Firepower skills boost heavy weapons, shotguns, and assault rifles. Strength and Dominance abilities are mostly for tanking and melee damage. Lastly, Talents in the Powers of the Ancients column greatly enhances his traversal abilities and attacks. As you level up, you get one point to place in each Tier, going left-to-right column by column. Let’s list all of his skills for a better overview of each Talent tree.
