Welcome to day 3 of WASDuk’s continued coverage of glitches in the iOS/Android version of Injustice: Gods Among Us. As you know, WASDuk has reached out to some of the most elite Injustice: Gods Among Us players on Earth Prime. The results from their intelligence files and battle strategies are second to none. As a result, WASDuk will be bringing you a glitch a day from different League members throughout the week. Today’s glitch was discovered, explained, and developed by Matthew Marria.
Glitch: Darkseid & the Mirror Match
People who have either hacked or jail broken (in an extreme way) their devices are testing out the new Challenge Characters that us poor non-hackers have to sit around and wait for. The screens and tales of dominance have been utterly captivating, but not being able to join in the fun is like being stuck on monitor duty by J’onn in the Wacthtower. Regardless, non-hackers can’t blame the hackers for having their fun. In a few months, our Booster Gold-ish status will change to a standing that is more akin to Superman, and we’ll revel in the dark side of combat!
The newest glitch in DC/NetherRealm’s Injustice was discovered a few hours ago by Matthew Marria while he was matching his teams of Darkseid, Bronze Lex Luthor or Bronze Flash or Bronze Green Lantern, and Batman against the infamous Mirror Match. For those of you coming in late, the Mirror Match pits you against any team that you have assembled, and each foe is at an elite V level. However, Matthew Marria noticed that Darkseid’s special ability has a calculation glitch. He explained it in the following Facebook post:
As revealed here, Darkseid’s Empower Minions adds 300% to both the damage and health of Bronze card-fighters. As Matthew Marria explained, Darkseid’s passive seems to increase his “minions” power far beyond what was thought possible. In the screen below, Bronze Green Lantern is shown to be throwing a punch that does 306,648 in damage!
Then, Bronze Lex Luthor is throwing normal strikes that do 1,448 each in damage. That is only a little less than a fully leveled and powered heavy strike by Red Son Superman.
Last, the Flash begins to throw hits that deal 3,206 each in damage. That is nearly twice the damage dealt by a fully leveled and powered Red Son Superman.
Eric Yeung, another one of our local Injustice geniuses, gave his opinions of the huge stat boosts below.
Indeed, Nightmare characters would be shaking in their boots if Darkseid revealed this much actual power. If DC/NetherRealms never fixes this glitch, then playing the Mirror Match repeatedly will be tons of fun, as beloved characters like Nightwing and Cyborg, who have no Gold versions, will finally be able to dish out way more than a Gold card-fighter can.
Nonetheless, Injustice players began flocking to the Mirror Match, and Dan Hosta teleported into the Watchtower to post the following screen shot of the New 52 Green Lantern. The screen records the total damage dealt by everyone on his team, but GL’s finishing move hit for an astounding 231,061.
Brian Navarro confirmed the actual damage dished out in the glitch by sending the following telepathic message (he trains with Dr. Fate, y’all) to WASDuk:
“This is a glitch that only happens on the mirror match. The bronze’s damage is increased by 1500% but their health remains increased by 300%. This glitch doesn’t seem to work when going up against Darkseid on challenge mode.“
Adding even more damage from Batman doesn’t hurt either. It’s good to see the Dark Knight and Darkseid getting along. They’re both usually too moody. In the end, this glitch does not seemingly appear in any other level. It is only a Mirror Match issue, yet it provides players with one hell of a truly guilty ride!
