How to Switch Characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn, a woman in pancake make-up with a humanoid shark next to her.

Find out how to change characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, allowing you to experience new moves and more.

The latest game from Rocksteady puts you in control of the Suicide Squad, a team of villains forced to fight to save the world. At launch there’s Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark and Captain Boomerang, with more set to come in the future. You can play as any of these as you try to save the world, but how do you change your character in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League?

While you can easily change your character during play in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, it’s important to note that you can only switch to characters currently being controlled by bots. So, if you’re planning on playing online with others, be sure to select your character of choice before starting matchmaking. As long there are characters being controlled by bots, however, you’re free to switch to them pretty much any time you’re out of a combat situation.

To change your character in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, you first need to press left on the d-pad. This will bring up a radial menu with which you can switch characters. Press up to select Harley Quinn, right for Boomerang, down for King Shark, and left for Deadshot. Again, remember that you can only switch to characters that aren’t currently being used by other players. It’s best making use of this feature when playing alone, as you can tactically switch characters when they’re Psyched Up for a mission, making them tougher for it and increasing their XP reward.
