Swamp Thing has extraordinary range, can disable the opponent's jump / dash, and much more in Injustice 2 - here's a quick breakdown

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • February 21, 2017 at 5:45 p.m. PST

IGN has put together a quick breakdown for one of the most recently announced Injustice 2 fighters, Swamp Thing.

In it, we learn that Swamp Thing has incredibly range, mostly due to his command grabs that can scoop up opponents from any distance. Though he doesn't do too well against projectile-heavy characters, he does have some tricks up his sleeve.

Below is a quick GIF of Swamp Thing in action to get you started.

Noob Saibot meets Dhalsim.
He looks fun and quite a lockdown character upclosed, and quite a good character far away.

Those dark stages are going to be a problem with gameplay since its difficult to see certain specials like that log sliding projectile.

Uhhh, weakness are characters that can rush in with attacks and he has to build up to get the Abigail's garden. I think not, he's pretty much balanced.

So just go to the options menu, select video and increase the gamma.

Swamp Thing is cool but loved seeing more Cheetah gameplay! She sure looks fun.

Nothing goes over his head. His reflexes are too fast and he'd catch it.

This is by far the most creative character that NRS has put together, shout outs to them for that.

They did really well with Swamp Thing, in concept!

I wish there were more "oddballs" for them to work creative concepts, like Mad Hatter or Clayface or Scarface & Ventriloquist.
