Injustice 2: Quick Basic Tutorial for Playing Aquaman

Aquaman

Aquaman

Aquaman has a long trident if that excites you. In the game, he is capable of summoning the rage of seven seas and burying his opponents in a watery grave. You don’t want to do that? If so, only he could do so.

Playing as Aquaman

Aquaman

Aquaman in Injustice 2 is said to be one of the best zoning characters in the game. Using his Trident Toss and Tentacle Slam, he is able to keep his opponents narrow. TS will force the opponent to jump forward to close the gap. At this point, you need to combine both attacks so that the opponent won’t be confused. Plus, try to punish any hit with Trident Rush.

In the event that you’re finishing up a combo, use his Character Strength to recover before taking any damage. This CP allows the character to cover himself in water, allowing him to cast a spell that helps him quickly recover from attacks, chain attacks, and escape the opponent’s combo attacks.

Key Moves and Combo Attacks

Aquaman

Shark Strike (down + square / down + X) is one of the fastest attacks of Aquaman and is a great tool to punish your opponent after blocking an attack from them making them vulnerable attack (ie “unsafe attack”). You can destroy it as Trident Rush, Trident Scoop or Tentacle Strike to initiate your attack momentum.

Rising Trident (down + triangle / down + Y) is an anti-aircraft attack with long vertical range. Use this move to cover most aerial approaches and force your opponent to land.

Trident Slam (back + triangle / back + Y) is mid-range overhead combination starterof Aquaman. Be sure to remove this attack as it may leave you vulnerable when blocked in close proximity.
