Nowadays, the multiplayer of Injustice: Gods Among Us is not the most crowded, mainly because it is a game from 2014, already very old, and because Injustice 2, its sequel, was released.

However, it is possible that the game gains a survival due to its period that was free. The servers are still up and running, so it’s always a good idea to fight other people via the Internet, to train and improve your techniques.

As much as the game has training modes or story mode, it is in multiplayer that any fighting game shines. And if playing online isn’t an option for you, try playing against others locally, in offline multiplayer.

Train Injustice: Gods Among Us combos

Like almost every fighting game, Injustice is made up of good combos. Combos are, as the name says, “combinations” of strokes. It is the combos that define a victory.

Think of it this way: if the character only punches the opponent, the opponent can counterattack. But if it is a sequence of punches, the chance of a counterattack is less and a victory is more likely.

In fact, the combo tip is valid for any fighting game, but in Injustice they can be combined with devastating attacks, which will guarantee your victory more easily.

Another good tip is to combine attacks with the scenario. Many scenarios are interactive and allow you to attack enemies with objects. Therefore, try new opportunities and combinations, when training or in new fights.
