Kill the Justice League Gameplay Reveals Weapon Manufacturers, Afflictions and More

Rocksteady Studios has released a new Insider Episode of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, delving more into combat and revealing some of the DC Universe characters helping out players. It also showcases the various weapon manufacturers like Star Labs, LexCorp, AmerTek, DCPD, etc.

Each has unique properties, like LexCorp’s weapons featuring fixed recoil and spread patterns. AmerTek has high ammo capacity and fire rate but heavy recoil. You can also discover weapons related to villains like Bane, whose Bane Rage Set infuses items like grenades with more damage after a critical hit.

After these manufacturers become available, Penguin can craft specific weapons from them. You can also equip Afflictions by speaking to a returning villain, imbuing poison, Diablo Blaze (fire), electricity and Deep Freeze (ice) into their guns, melee weapons and grenades. Diablo Blaze deals fire damage over time, but you can’t Shield Harvest affected enemies.

Deep Freeze will freeze enemies and cause them to shatter from gunfire. However, they won’t break easily from melee attacks or drop ammo. It seems you can have up to two Afflictions, though it’s unknown whether this is per squad member or player in co-op.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches on February 2nd, 2024, for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
