Just days after the release of Injustice 2, the fighting game community has discovered an infinite combo string for Gorilla Grodd.
One of the main antagonists in the story line, the super-intelligent primate can lock his opponent in an endless loop with just two moves. Begin with “Back + Medium Attack” and cancel into leap to land a cross-up heavy attack. Follow it with another “Back + Medium Attack” to force the opponent to re-stand and follow the same combo. When done accurately, the opponent will be unable to move and completely open to Gorilla Grodd until he messes up.
The infinite combo string is explained in the video below, which incidentally was recorded during the beta of Injustice 2. However, Event Hubs has confirmed that Gorilla Grodd is still able to perform the combo in the currently available live version.
While despicable, the combo does require precise timing and accuracy. A minor error in judgement will immediately end the infinite string. However, that does not mean the issue is resolved. NetherRealm Studios definitely needs to look into this and patch it through a hot-fix or an upcoming update.
Elsewhere, the fighting game community also discovered a nifty way of decimating opponents with Deadshot. An endless spam of his wrist cannon from the other side of the screen, filled with incendiary ammo, can be effective in completely zoning out the opponent. The barrage of weapon fire only leaves little windows of opportunity for the player to retaliate. We are still in the early days of release, and it will take time before a possible counter is discovered for Deadshot.
Injustice 2 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The possibility of a PC version is still in the air.
