Injustice 2, the superhero fighting sequel from NetherRealm Studios, is out and it’s bigger than its predecessor in almost every way possible, including its companion mobile port.
Injustice 2 on mobile is more than a clever marketing tactic because underneath the free-to-play hood is a gameplay experience that faithfully emulates the complex combat fundamentals of its console counterpart. This is in part thanks to an intuitive touch-screen interface that’s optimized around the intense fighting action that the series is famous for.
Not only is the app an effective way to play the DC epic on the go, but it’s also an outlet to unlock content for the retail version. In fact, there’s exclusive content to be found in the mobile version of Injustice 2 that can only be obtained through the mobile app. And we here at GameSkinny have got the tips you need to nab all that sweet swag, taking it from your phone to your TV!
Connecting the Console and Mobile Versions of Injustice 2
To connect the app to your game, navigate to the “Extras” option from the main menu on your console version of the game, then move over to “Link to Injustice 2 mobile”, where an activation code will appear on the screen. At this point, you’ll need to open the “Settings” menu on the mobile game and select “Console Link”.
Once opened, you’re going to enter the provided six-digit number into the field. The link will now be complete, and you’ll get a Diamond Mother Box to compensate you for your minimal efforts.
In addition to getting Grid when you boot up Injustice 2 mobile (see below), you’ll earn an automatic, daily Bronze Mother Box payout for linking with the Mobile version of the game. So be sure to boot up the game at least once a day to squeeze the most you can out of the reoccurring gift.
Unlocking Grid in Injustice 2
The first taste of Injustice 2′s mobile goodies is given to you right off the bat as the game will give you access to Grid, an alternate character that’s accessed as a premier skin of Cyborg.
Once you get the skin, make sure you select Cyborg in the “Customize Character” mode and equip it to one of the five load-out slots available from the “Available Skins” option at the bottom of the loadout panel.
Voila! You’ll be able to play as the titan tinman’s evil doppelganger.
Source Crystals Rewards
The only way to access the real goodies in Injustice 2 mobile, like more Premier Character skins and equipable gear, is to spend Source Crystals. This currency is incredibly rare in the base console game but is readily available in bulk as a microtransaction purchase.
The mobile version of Injustice 2 is a bit more generous as even the most basic of accomplishments (playing the Injustice 2 on console, for example, will net you an easy 25 crystals) will often yield clusters of crystals. Just make sure to check the “Objectives: section on the left-hand side of the main menu to reap the prizes from your efforts often. You’ll get the chance to score more than crystals from time to time — sometimes even exclusive gear.
There you have it — a surefire method to get the most out of Injustice 2, whether you’re on the couch or on the can. Be sure to comment any other methods you know of to farm all the goodies you can get out of Injustice 2 down below!
