The latest ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ challenge is really a duplicate of one of the very first challenges introduced in this game. The fact that this challenge is making a repeat appearance speaks to how essential Batgirl is to any ‘Injustice’ crew. If you are new to the game or didn’t get this dominant character when you had the chance this challenge is for you. As usual with these trials you need to complete five levels of ladder fights to obtain the Batgirl card.
The Batgirl Challenge
The only way to obtain the Batgirl card is to win her through the challenge. After that you can add her to your roster of playable characters to upgrade her through fight experience. The challenges are made up of five tiers of battles that each have their own unique requirements. For example, a particular character might have to be part of your team or only certain levels of characters are allowed in the fight. Here is the complete requirements list for the Batgirl challenge levels:
- Challenge 1 – Only Bronze Level Characters Can Be Used
- Challenge 2 – Nightwing Must Be on Your Team
- Challenge 3 – Only Bronze or Silver Level Characters Can Be Used
- Challenge 4 – The Joker Must Be on Your Team
- Challenge 5 – Deathstroke Must Be On Your Team
You can play through the challenge the first time in ‘standard’ mode to initially obtain the Batgirl card. Afterwards you can play again in ‘expert’ and ‘nightmare’ mode to get a duplicate card that allows you to increase the rank of Batgirl to quickly power her up.
The Awesomeness of Batgirl
I don’t use the word ‘awesome’ very much, but having won Batgirl during the first iteration of this challenge way back in 2013 I can’t imagine my team roster without her. Right off the ‘bat’, she comes fully loaded with a damage value of 935 and a health rating of 1100. There aren’t many characters that can boast those kinds of stats and most of those who can come from Krypton. Only the recent challenges of ‘Blackest Night’ Batman and Martian Manhunter can compare in terms of raw power. Batgirl’s three unique special attacks are what really sets her apart from the crowd and distinguishes her as one of the most deadly opponents anyone could face. Her ‘Art of Deception’ attack delivers a punishing blow from her batarangs from behind a smoke screen. The ‘Redemption’ special attack is so powerful that I often use this to disable more than one enemy in a single assault. The ‘High-Wire Act’ unblockable special attack allows Batgirl to unleash a savage onslaught that few enemies can withstand. The real gem of the Batgirl character is her unique special ability. Her ‘Tactical Advantage’ capability allows Batgirl and her teammates to start each match with one bar of power already full.
By far, Batgirl has been one of my most beloved and reliable members of my team roster. I play the iOS version of ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ on my iPhone5. You can learn more about the ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ game at the NetherRealm Studios and Warner Brothers websites.
