In case you’ve been playing Injustice 2 and haven’t noticed yet, there’s a mini game tucked into the game’s Super Moves that can actually make quite a difference in close matches.
Demonstrated above by YouTube user Enkindu, here’s how it works: during the super, if you press heavy attack and time it with the hits, it will increase the damage dealt to your opponent. However, your opponent can counter this by doing the same thing and as a result, decrease the damage.
“You’ll get icons below the health bar signifying your timing was correct,” writes Enkindu while confirming that this is applicable to all characters.
If you’ve tried this yourselves, let us know if you managed to tip a match in your favor!
