Injustice 2 Aquaman

Injustice 2 Aquaman Guide to help you learn everything you need about playing as Aquaman, his combos, and best builds. Aquman in Injustice 2 is all about zoning to pressure his opponents and forcing them into making bad decisions.

Following a bitter defeat during the fall of Superman’s Regime, Aquaman has returned to the surface in order to keep Atlantis’ freedom. However, with new threats looming over the horizon, can Aquaman swallow his pride and do what is necessary for the betterment of his people? Originally named Arthur Curry, Aquaman was born to a human father and Atlantean mother. He is the rightful heir to the throne of Atlantis.

Playing as Aquaman

Aquaman in Injustice 2 is arguably one of the finest zoning characters in the game. Using his Trident Toss and Tentacle Slam, he can keep the opponents at an arm’s length. The TS will force the opponent into jumping forward in order to close in the gap. At this point, you need to mix up both these attacks in a way that keeps your opponent confused. In addition to this, try to punish any whiff with the Trident Rush.

In case you are on the receiving end of a combo, use his Character Power to recover before sustaining any damage. I love Aquaman’s Character Power called the Water of Life. This CP allows the character to coat himself in water, allowing him to use a buff that enables him to quickly recover from hits, chain attacks, and escape his opponent’s combos.
