iOS/Android Challenge Stage Walkthrough: Batgirl

The latest Challenge Stage for the iOS version of Injustice: Gods Among Us is a blast from the past. While Android users are being offered Regime Raven for February, whose Challenge Stage walkthrough can be read here, Batgirl and the Arkham Origins Batman have been revived for iPad and iPhone players. DC/NetherRealms was wise to reanimate this duo, as Arkham Origins Batman is one of the most dominant cards in the game. His Invisible Predator ability allows him to begin matches with two power bars. If Batgirl joins him, then he can instantly deliver a unblockable move. This team can be capped off with a number of worthy support characters, such as the Killing Joke Joker, who refills his team’s health when he is knocked out, or Red Son Wonder Woman to add power generation to the team.

Some players may gawk at the huge price tag in Arkham Origins Batman’s utility belt (375,000 credits), but he is well worth the cost. His stats and hulking presence are matched only by the Kryptonians in the game. Furthermore, when this version of Batman was first introduced to iOS devices, he was removed from the Injustice shop far too quickly. As a result, many players were unable to purchase him, and only a select few could throw around his weight.

Please note that the new characters WASDuk broke the news about yesterday will come in future Challenge Stages beginning in March. Read about the upcoming Darkseid, Containment Doomsday, Boss Solomon Grundy, and 600 Wonder Woman here.

As with any Challenge Stage, players will receive the above announcement and 25 tokens to use for matches. The 25 tokens will get players through the first two rounds, but players must also be equipped with select card-fighters to compete in the 5 battle stages.

Battle 1: Only Bronze Characters Can Be On Your Team

The first round of fights requires you to only use Bronze Characters. As a result, WASDuk has compiled a strategy guide to help you assemble the best Bronze teams in the game, which can be read here. The first play-through is quite simple, but the subsequent additional play throughs, especially the final Nightmare rounds, will require more complex teams to be assembled. As a result, consider your team’s passive abilities carefully. Bronze Green Arrow, Nightwing, and Lex all drain power from enemies with their level 1 special attacks. Flash gets a 15% speed bonus to attacks for every level 1 special he uses (it maxes at 3 uses, or at 45%). Sinestro gets 15% power generation every time an opponent tags out against him (no limit). Furthermore, Andrew Ryan Singer from the Facebook group iOS Injustice Players points out that a great team can also contain the New 52 version of the Flash (only available via Bronze Booster Packs or through the console) because he adds 5% power generation.

Battle 2: Nightwing Must be On Your Team

The loop-hole in this requirement is that players can add Gold card-fighters to Nightwing’s team. The best support cards in the game are the Red Son characters, who will absolutely steam-roll the opponents in this round. However, if players want a Gotham theme, then Batgirl (IF you completed her Challenge Stage before) and any of the Batman card-fighters can be added. For fans of the Teen Titans, team Nightwing with Regime Cyborg and Regime Raven in order to GO!

Battle 3: Only Silver or Bronze Characters Can Be On Your Team

Gold card-fighters are not allowed to be used here, so form your teams carefully. Last week’s Tuesday’s Trinity revealed a life-saving trick with Green Arrow’s Freeze Arrow ability. If players find themselves getting pummeled, then add Green Arrow to your team. His level 1 attack can be used to ice your foe. Once you render the foe immobile, do not strike him or her. Instead, simply wait while your team’s power maxes out. Once every member’s bars are full, unleash a series of devastating unblockables.

Battle 4: The Joker Must Be On Your Team

In DC comic’s lore, the Joker was responsible for paralyzing Batgirl (aka Barbara Gordon) and she subsequently became Oracle. A common team consisting of the Insurgency Joker and two other versions of Harley will do fine in the first play through of this round. In the final Nightmare play through though, consider using a nearly unstoppable team in Doomsday, Red Son Wonder Woman, and the Killing Joke Joker. Doomsday’s Hero Killer ability refills 50% of his health for every knock-out, Red Son Wonder Woman will add 15% power generation with Red Son Power, and the Killing Joke Joker can be sacrificed to get you out of any contingently sticky situations.

Battle 5: Deathstroke Must Be On Your Team

There are three versions of Deathstroke to select from, but the Red Son Deathstroke is fantastically dominant. His level 2 special attack, called Contract Killer, deals ungodly amounts of damage. Therefore, a team composed of multiple Red Son cards is ideal, as the passive abilities of Red Son cards double for every other Red Son card on the team. Pair him with Red Son Superman to get a 75% damage boost, a 15% speed boost from Deathstroke, and either Red Son Wonder Woman or Red Son Solomon Grundy to gain power generation or health.

Last, be sure to note that the original Batgirl Challenge stage did not offer multiple play throughs. The final battle in the Nightmare Stage now has been upgraded to having two fighters. Rather than facing Batgirl alone, she will be joined by Arkham Origins Batman. This duo will begin the match with four power bars between them, so be sure to check yourself lest you wreck yourself, son. Once you take down the new dynamic duo, then Batgirl will be added to both your deck as well as to your Injustice shop.

    The people playing injustice on a kindle fire have not got a regime raven challenge but a normal aquaman (yes not regime) challenge that doesn’t work, it says all the levels are complete and all the five rewards are quote “%gold booster pack hooray stuff” do you know why this is

    • Chris Patton

      That is no fun at all! We are looking into it now, and will get back to you shortly! You can always count on the WASDuk Lanterns!

      • cyrus

        Lol, thanks very much

    • Chris Patton

      From Gemini:
      “That was the glitch Aquaman that we have. They should click
      Each stage to make sure that it was all completed then check in the shop if he is available there to be purchase.”

      • cyrus

        All the challenges are completed and if you are connected to internet opening the shop crashes the game. Also he is in shop when not connected to internet for 999,999 credits however if you click on him he turns out to be the flash >.<

      • cyrus

        I don’t think I can fix this, I’m not that fussed about raven so I’ll just st tight and hope it is fixed for next challenge or soonish. Thanks for your help anyway

  • http://twitter.com/mason_moorexxx MASON_MOOREXXX

    would you care if I retweet this?

    • Chris Patton

      Hey, Mason! No, feel free. Also, be sure to follow us and we’ll hit you back as well, my friend!

  • Dragon

    Do you recommend using lvl 20 Batman Beyond or lvl 24 prison superman in the 5th stage near the end? My other team members are lvl 27 Doomsday (gold) and lvl 9 Deathstroke (silver, cuz I have to)

    • Chris Patton

      They are similar, as their passives are useless, but their second special attack is a multi-strike combo. I lean towards prison superman because he is stronger, but always side with the character that has a higher level. For example, if Supes is elite 3 and Bats is elite 4, then go with bats. If you are trying to clear the game, then Red Son Superman is the best, and Batman > ALL batmen.

      • Dog

        I can’t get pass the red son trio on challenge 5 nightmare difficulty. I missed the red son death stroke challenge is there any way to get him? I have mostly every gold character maxed out except him, batgirl and arkham batman.

        • Chris Patton

          Hi! This team is giving everybody headaches. Here are some dominant teams to try:
          1) Regime Wonder Woman/Red Son Superman, Red Son Wonder Woman, Deathstroke
          2) Doomsday, Deathstroke, Killing Joke Joker
          3) Arkham Asylum Batman, Batgirl, Deathstroke

          The trick is to always use support cards to boost the team. Let me know if you have those cards.

  • zjq10

    Two questions:

    1) I’ve completed the the challenge twice and now on the last difficulty, the bronze challenge is really rough. It always is but usually 3 elite v level 40 bronze characters with their unblockable move maxed can do it. I keep dieing on the second battle. Obviously it could be me but it seemed unusually difficult. Is anyone else having trouble with this? Just for a frame of reference my team is Nightwing, Deathstroke, Sinestro – all level 40 elite v.

    2) Good point about the combination between Batgirl and Arkham Origins Batman – is he possible in gold packs now? Just seems rough to pay 375 6 times to max him out when that would essentially give you a maxed out Red Son Team or a maxed out Man of Steel duo.

    Thanks

    • Chris Patton

      Yes, check out our bronze guide!!! The best team for you may be Nightwing (less damage/power drains), Lex Luthor (15% to damage/power drains), and Green Arrow (5% to damage/power drains). Try that team, and if you lose a close match, then replace Green Arrow with Solomon Grundy, who can reanimate once.

    • Chris Patton

      For AO Batman, it depends on your style. On the one hand, if you team him with Batgirl, then he can start a match by dealing an unblockable, plus he has the highest stats in the game. Thus, a team of he, Batgirl, and either KJ Joker or Red Son Wonder Woman can be more than lethal. But, it depends on whether you will use him. Red Son is the best pack in the game, so I would say Red Son > AO Batman > Man of Steel Pack. Last, no you cannot get AO Batman in the Gold Booster Pack.

      • zjq10

        Thanks Chris.

        I’ll prolly wait on AO Batman. Wonder how long he will be in the store.

        But you’re also probably right about the Bronze team. Guess I’ll have to max out Lex.

        • Chris Patton

          Lex can be left on a lot of teams, as his damage boost is only surpassed by a few cards in the game. But, that Bronze Challenge on Nightmare is a… Nightmare ;-)

  • Skinsfan

    Chris, love the site and all the updates on what is no my favorite ios time sucker, injustice….saw the post above I the batgirl challenge being redone, but I can’t seem to see it. I’ve updated to the latest version, restarted app numerous times, and even rebooted my phone, but no luck. Am I missing something or has the challenge even started yet?

    • Chris Patton

      Yes, the iOS Challenge is 3 days in. Have you gone to the App Store to see if you can update the Injustice version? You should try that. Lemme know if that does not work, my friend.

  • Jonathan

    :( Hoping for some advice for the people that missed RS Deathstroke. My ass is getting kicked in Nightmare Mode with only silver Deathstroke to do the requirements. I’m saving for AO Batman though, and I was planning to team him with Martian Manhunter or KJJ to win the last battles. Any advice?

    • Chris Patton

      Hi, Jonathan! I would stack your team with 2 of the best cards in the game. For instance, do you have Regime Wonder Woman and Red Son Wonder Woman? Red Son WW gives a power generation boost, and Regime WW gets power generation for blocking. Thus, she may be able to take out 1-2 fighters, and then you can use a Deathstroke and RS WW to finish of the last fighter. Also, if all else fails, use either Superman’s freeze breath or Green Arrow’s freeze arrow. If your opponent is frozen, then they do not thaw. Simply let your power bars fill and DO NOT strike the foe. Unleash your unblockable so once they fill, my friend!

      • Jonathan

        Oh, thanks a lot! Well I do have my Regime WW Elite V, but my Red Son is only Elite III. So do you think a team of Wonder Women is better than a AO Batman with support? Maybe I’ll just spend my money to buy two RS packs because those fights have me crazy and I refuse to skip lol. My Regular Superman is only Elite I so no chances there :(
        My strongest cards are: Martian Manhunter, Regular Batman, Doomsday, WW, Black Adam and KJJ. They are all Elite V. My Red Sons are all EIII and my AO Bats is only Elite II. :D

  • http://Wasduk.com Chris Patton

    Hey! My WW Regime had everything maxed out, but be careful about who she is flanked by. For example, Regime a Green Lantern won’t last long, but he gives her a HUGE advantage. If you can deal an unblockable with her, then a card like KJ Joker is ideal, because you can throw him in to die, and WW can recharge to do 1-2 more unblockables. However, with the cards you have, I would team Regime WW, Batman (25% to damage), and KJ Joker. That team is solid. Also, be sure you BLOCK with Regime WW!

  • Macca1994

    I don’t have this challenge yet for some reason is there any way I can’t fix this

  • Macca1994

    Sorry chris just updated app it’s sorted now back to grinding for cards

  • Sheikh

    I was doing the regime raven challange in my android but after update the latest version the challange expired before time

    • Chris Patton

      That is horrible! Have you rebooted the device?! This happened to iOS users on the Aquaman Challenge! Let us know if you can’t fix it!!!

  • Macca1994

    The bronze challenge on nightmare for batgirl, really is a nightmare!

    • Chris Patton

      Yep! So hard if all cards are not elite V @_@

  • David

    New 52 green lantern, deathstroke and lex at level 5 should get u thru make sure u buy their unblockable specials to max or near. Use deathstroke first because when he knocks someoneout he gets back power. To land blockable moves just wait until the computer does a basic attack if u press fast enough a maybe a few times u should get to do a special thats not blocked.

    • Chris Patton

      Why New 52 GL? his boost is so small. Do you mean Regime GL?

      • David

        Because he is the best bronze card based of his stats and his 1st special does just as much as his 2nd u could go for the stun n bring another person in but stun chance is small. His super is near 10000 damage with lex on ur team same for deathstroke. U have to save inorder to knock out the computers best card. Best stragety for that stage is to do heavy basic combo with gl or deathstroke until the comp tags in the card with more health than use the supers from ds n gl to knock out the higher health cards and then use lexs super to knock out the card that is left over.

        • Chris Patton

          I’m not sold, because 10,000 damage is nothing. With Regime GL you get 25% power generation and can execute multiple unblockables! Knowhattaimean?!

  • David

    Best team u can make with only one gold character is regime aquaman ,green arrow and regime green lantern, green arrows move freezes them until u touch them. Any move including supers are double the damage while frozen. So green lantern does like 40 thousand damage. Aqua man drains the enemy teams entire power with his super. Thats how u can beat the night mare levels except when u have to use death stroke still works just takes longer to build power.

    • Chris Patton

      So, you freeze with Green Arrow, and power drain with Aquaman? why is it the best?

      • David

        Because when u get to nightmare level and u dont have a level five red son deathstroke on the final stage its hard to beat some of the lineups with 150 thousand health and two other gold cards with nearly half that health. Aquaman does more damage than ww and takes the entire enemy teams health. Build ur meter with aquaman against the first card and then use his super and then bring in green arrow wait for the computer to basic attack and press that special 1 as rapidly as u can u should have nearly 3 bars so one should hit unless ur really bad then let aquamans meter fill bring in green arrowthen do the same with green arrow. Unleash aquamans attack and it should almost kill the higher health bar card and will kill any card with 90000 health because it does twice as much damage. Repeat to finish off other cards. Computer cant unleash a special if they dont have any. A little harder to do on random tag but its still possible.

        • Chris Patton

          Right on! We’ll try that team!

          • Dacid

            Where can u email the makers of the game because they should upgrade all the batmans and regular wonder woman should be a gold card not silver same for doomsday. Batman beyond stats should not be below batgirl!!! His passive ability is a shame not just because it doesnt work but he should be immune to all types of damage like poison,burning,bleeding and shouldnt be able to be frozen. Its freakin batman damn it with a future tech suit. The batmans shouldnt all do the same first move either. One should have the kick slide combo, the other with the gatling gun move, scatter bombs. If they wont do that at least fix it so batman can stun again because he cant. It says stunned but the computer moves right away now. Batman arkham origins should have an unblockable 2nd move and if the headbutt knocks out a card his knees should be able to hit the next card coming in. They should also fix insurgency batmans passive it should be any move does 300 percent more damage. So if u stunned them and hit them with the lunge kick it would do almost 100000 damage.

          • Chris Patton

            Dacid! They read these articles and comments, so they may or may not note your arguments, my friend.

          • David

            How do you perform redson wonder womans 2 special at a 200 percent? I know the 2nd half is just a rapid button press but i can never get the first part to be 200? Only 150. Any help? Also when ranking cards u should take into consideration the speed and distance that can be covered in attacks. Aquamans combos do good damage at a great speed compared to most same, his titan throw can be performed at far and he is the only character in the game that can knockdown an opponent with his light basic combo with out swiping at the end by pressing the screen really fast if done can also get an unblocked special attack if u press one of the special buttons right away. 2nd attack does massive damage and can knock out multiple enemies. His bleeding damage attack sometimes does bleed damage even if blocked and last longer than any other characters.

          • Chris Patton

            Well said David, but I also wonder why J’onn also does that… Regardless, WASDuk is constantly plotting how each month’s ranking will change ;-)

  • David

    Still didnt get my answer to red son wonder woman 2nd special?

    • Chris Patton

      Hey! So, we have been trying but I find it quite impossible. Getting a shorter time to hit 3 times, seems to limit damage between 150-180%. Thus, it is similar to getting Bane to 100%. Only the Flash can do it ;-(

      • David

        I dont mean the 2nd part the first part where u have to touch 2 different spots in the first part of the 2nd special.

  • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

    Chris, This is in reference to the Injustice GOA App for iPad/iPhone, I already have the Batgirl Gold Card level V maxed out. In the beginning of the latest upgrade of the App the devs hinted at receiving a BOSS card, I took it that they were refering to a Red Card. I’ve won the Easy and the Hard levels of the Batgirl challenge and I just don’t know if it’s worth my time and saved energy credits to try and win the final Insane level. Case being if I’m just going to have 3 extra Batgirl cards to sell back, it’s just not worth my time. Also, thanks for the site, it’s great!
    -Matt

    • Chris Patton

      Matthew! The BOSS reference was for an upcoming Boss Solomon Grundy Challenge a Stage. Thus, no, it is not worth your time. But be sure to get AO Bats maxed out!

  • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

    Chris, Thanks, I maxed AO Bats out within 24hrs of his original release, it took many hours and wiped out my coin reserve, but was well worth it! Sad to say that I just completed the Batgirl challenge, and it did nothing other than earn me an extra card. I would really like the devs to allow some type of card trading among friends on FB, but I know that’s just a pipe dream as long as there is $ to be made from people who buy coin credits. Thanks anyway! BTW, an awesome combo is Wonder Woman Regime, AO Batman, and Batgirl! Open with WW and just block, this will fill her special attack bars faster than your opponents, also BG’s special attack bars will gain power. Before your opponent inflicts a special move on WW, switch to AO Bats and KO them. After that you are left with WW ready for full attack, and BG is not far behind! A lethal team!

    • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

      P.S. That lethal team is only lethal with all three crash maxed out.

  • Macca1994

    Hi, chris was wondering if you knew what the next challenge is after the current batgirl one ends would be very helpful, Matthew I use the exact same team it truly is lethal an would recommend it to anyone to get them 3 maxed out, it’s takes a lot of grinding but it’s fun to do when your cards are getting stronger an stronger

    • Chris Patton

      This is NOT confrimed, but it is being strongly suggested by our beloved hackers that it is 600 Wonder Woman.

      • http://Wasduk.com Matthew North

        I hope the hackers are correct, a new WW would be sweet! Especially since for some reason the Devs love making WW part of your team a requirement!

        • Chris Patton

          Yeah, she has some great passives for certain teams. Regime Waw is very unique, so 600 WW will make her a true god @_@

    • Chris Patton

      It is believed to be 600 Wonder Woman, but it is not yet verified.

  • http://Wasduk.com Matthew North

    Chris, do you have an intel, on when the next challenge will begin, for the
    Injustice GOA iPhone/iPad app?

    • Chris Patton

      Hi, Matthew! It should begin next week. However, NRs won’t verify anything. If it doesn’t begin next week, then it means the new characters (600 WW, Darkseid, etc.) are not completed.

      • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

    Chris, I have the PS3 version of Injustice GOA. Do you know how I can unlocks the Batman Beyond, Harley Q. Arkham, and Bane Knightfall cards? I can’t find the option on my console, I think it’s called MET. Any help should be most appreciated! Also, I’ve sent out requests to all of my FB friends, IOT try and gain the 5 Alliance credits but to avail, do you know of an easier way to earn them, other than logging in everyday and earning the 9 or so credits a week from doing that?

    • Chris Patton

      Hi! You can join the FB group IOS Alliance Credit Hub, and others will help you by friending you and sending AC points. For the PS3, double check the reqs and be sure you meet them while using MET!

    Matthew breaking news looks like it DARKSEID!!!!!!:)

    • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

      Thanks Macca, that’s awesome! I just hope that they don’t skimp on power or life strength! The players earned in challenges of late have been (in my opinion), lopsided. Either either strong with too little heart, or vice versa!

  • Macca1994

    He is a great card best challenge mode to date amazing!!!

    • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

      I couldn’t agree more! 1,050 Damage, 1200 Health on the basic card!!!! Also he’s not only the strongest/healthiest card to date but he is 101,000 power credits cheaper than Batman Arkham Origions, Darkseid costs 274,000 PC’s/ Batman AO 375,000 PC’s! Also all Bronze players on Darkseid’s team receive a +300% gain in health & power! NRs knocked it out of the park for the first time since Bats AO!

      • Dog

        Yea but his passive ability sucks unless u pick bronze cards and turns it just turns them into silver cards bssically. He’s not Grundy slow but he isn’t batman quick. If his second attack gets blocked it will only do the first half of the move. Batman still the best single card. 2 power bars to start with a special that gives u the ability to knock the first card right away.

        • Chris Patton

          Yeah, good points about Batman. However, it is great to have a Challenge Stage character that is debatable as being one of the best, lest we forget Elseworlds Flash.

  • James

    First good challenge character in a while. I would argue he is better than BAO though. BAO has a great passive but Darkseid is 101000 credits cheaper!!!!!!! He also ends up with about 2000 more health and has 50 more base damage this gives him approximately 65,000 damage ult. His power swipe combo is very effective is used CORRECTLY!!!!!! However, I believe BAO is better when teamed with batgirl, but if someone truly wanted to yolo they could put him with BAO and Batgirl. Just sayin.

    • Dog

      2000 more health or 50 more damage is not a huge difference. Bao ability makes it easy to beat those challenge levels that allow no supers, radiation, or low power gain matches. Instant knock out to start or near is knock out is a better ability than making bronze cards into silver cards. He cost more just because of his ability. That’s why doomsday cost more than batgirl, lobo, and aquaman because of regeneration ability even though stats are similar.

      • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

        Speaking of Lobo, I honestly believe that most under estimate his passive!

        • http://wasduk.com Matthew North

          0% power loss? Come on that’s badass!

          • Chris Patton

            Hi, Matthew! MMH can drain his power, but it is very useful against the power drainers like Lex, Nightwing, Green Arrow or Black Adam. He is pretty cool, IMO ;-)
