Special Moves

Robin, like Batman, is a gadget-type character that relies heavily on his equipment. In Robin’s case, he utilizes his sword and a mix of birdarangs to get a job done.

Character Power – Deadly Arsenal (Circle/B)

Robin utilizes a variety of different birdarangs:

  • Smoke Pellet (Circle/B) – Robin throws a birdarang he can teleport to
  • Explosive Birdarang (Down, Back + Circle/B) – Robin throws an explosive birdarang he can detonate at any time
  • Remote Birdarang (Down, Forward + Circle/B) – Robin throws a birdarang he can recall at any time

Supermove – Holding Back (R2+L2/RT+LT)

Robin stabs the enemy in the stomach. The attack is blockable and Robin must be in arms reach of the enemy. If successful, Robin throws a series of explosive birdarangs past the enemy. He then proceeds to slash the enemy multiple times before the birdarangs return to hit the enemy, which then explode.

How to Unlock Nightwing

Despite being in Injustice 2’s campaign, there is no dedicated Nightwing character that’s playable. However, there is a way to unlock his fighting style for Robin. To do so, players will need to get lucky and acquire the Staff of Grayson add-on ability. This will replace Deadly Arsenal with the ability to switch between his sword and Nightwing’s staff. His moveset while using the staff is the exact same as Nightwing’s in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Be aware, this is an extremely rare item. You can only get it as a random drop while playing as Robin, or through Mother Boxes.
