The Quickest Way to Level in Injustice 2

Experience points are key, so this guide tells you the fast and easy method for doing it.


When it comes to games that require you to progress to get better skills or gear, leveling up is very important. Injustice 2 is no different, so the quicker you gain XP, the faster you will level. Injustice 2 matches offer experience points, as does most of the single-player content. But doing it efficiently and quickly will get you leveled up fast. Here's how to do it.

Bonuses Through Equipment

Lots of Injustice 2 items give XP bonuses. Some are straight adds to the base XP, while other will give XP if you meet certain conditions. Granted mixing and matching may not give your character the most dapper look, but if you are trying to level fast, you will need to sacrifice the GQ image for equipment that grants the most experience. If you are lucky, you can find a good piece that looks good with your set, while granting solid XP at the same time..

Getting Good in Matches

Most matches in Injustice 2 will grant some form of XP, but the better you perform, the more XP you will get. Using a variety of moves and combos will grant you better experience than using the same move or single moves repetitively. Combos that do a lot of damage or meter-burning special moves, couple with a super move, will give you the most experience once the match concludes.

Single-Player Story Mode

You can choose you difficulty level in the single-player story mode content, and the higher the difficulty, the more experience you will get. Of course, you need to be up to the task, as higher difficulty could mean more failure, frustration and a stagnant XP level. But just be aware that max difficulty will give the best XP

Opening Your Wallet

Source Crystals are a big part of Injustice 2. Once you hit level 20 with one character, you have the option of using 10,000 Source Crystals to get another character to level 20. Seeing as you tend to get them rather slowly, you can spend real cash to get crystals and save time on leveling in game. Here are the source crystal prices:

  • 2,000 for 99 cents
  • 11,000 for $4.99
  • 23,000 for $9.99
  • 50,000 for $19.99
  • 150,000 for $49.99
