Best Characters in Injustice 2
Harley Quinn has really come into her own in Injustice 2. While she definitely had her use in the first game, this time around she’s a perfect starter character for newcomers and absolutely devastating in some trained hands. With the new stat system, it’s clear to see that Harley isn’t exactly built for survivability. Her defense and health pool is lower than anyone else on this list. However, she more than makes up for that with high agility that allows her to string together long, intense combos.
Harley’s specialty is keeping opponents off balance. Thanks to her tantrum stance – which sees Ms. Quinzel throw herself on the floor where she can pull off numerous different abilities – she’s able to constantly keep opponents guessing what her next move may be. She’s also great at juggling with combos designed around keeping foes in the air as she delivers a flurry of rapid strikes. Harley also has incredible range with attacks designed for long, medium, and close range. As long as you have an understanding of the stronger characters you’re up against, Harley can find a gap in their defenses to exploit.
It doesn’t hurt that this is one of the best iterations of Mr. J’s better half that I’ve ever seen in a video game. She’s still a bit on the crazy side, but she’s stronger and more confident as well as showing just how good a person there is under all that makeup and mayhem. The combination of interesting character development and easy to use yet highly useful mechanics make Harley Quinn one of the very best.
