- The upcoming patch for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will fix a Burn bug that trivializes endgame content.
- Aside from adjusting Burn damage to scale as the developer intended, the update will also split player Mastery Level rankings into pre- and post-Burn-nerf leaderboards, in addition to introducing some balancing changes.
- Rocksteady began testing the new patch on February 8 but has yet to commit to a concrete release date.
Rocksteady Studios has detailed the contents of the next Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League update, revealing that the upcoming patch will deal with the fact that some players have completely broken the game by abusing a Burn-related bug, in addition to introducing a number of other changes. Despite confirming the plan to nerf Burn builds, the company did so while praising the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League fandom for breaking the game so soon after its release.
The first new AAA title from the Batman Arkham series developer in nearly a decade was released for PC and current-generation consoles on January 30. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was met with mixed reviews from critics, but more encouraging reactions from the fandom, as underlined by the fact that its Steam player scores are currently in the “Very Positive” category, based on nearly 3,500 ratings.
All of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League’s Boss Fights Share a Massive Downside
While Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League allows Task Force X to battle several former superheroes, every fight shares one disappointing aspect.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Is Fixing Burn Builds
And while the new Suicide Squad game was off to a bit of a rough start on PC, audience size-wise, enough people have been playing it for one completely broken strategy to already surface online. The approach in question revolves around Burn builds, which currently benefit from the fact that their central status effect is bugged, with its damage scaling across Mastery Levels “far beyond what the game was balanced for at launch,” Rocksteady wrote on the shooter’s official Discord channel. The next Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice league update will address this issue, consequently making higher Mastery Levels much more challenging for Burn builds.
Player Rankings Will Be Split Into Pre- and Post-Burn-Nerf Leaderboards
Rocksteady used its announcement as an opportunity to “applaud” the players for “breaking the game,” stating that the ridiculous Mastery Levels some have achieved with their broken Burn builds will be immortalized. To that end, the upcoming update will introduce another leaderboard for players in the post-Burn-nerf era in which all Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Afflictions will hopefully work as intended.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Is Rebalancing Mastery Levels and Nerfing Some Items
The next patch will also include a few other changes that are geared toward rebalancing the shooter’s endgame offerings. Specifically, Rocksteady will make enemy health scale less aggressively past Mastery Level 50, with that change promising to make the late-game grind more bearable. At the same time, The Heat Wave’s Molten Skin and The Turtle’s Shell are getting nerfed because the developer concluded they made the game too easy due to how easy their effects are to trigger; instead of providing immunity, both items will offer 90% damage reduction following the next patch.
The upcoming update is still without a concrete release date, although Rocksteady Community Manager Darroch Brown confirmed that the patch began in-house testing on February 8 and will be deployed “soon.” These fixes are far from the only thing that the developer has in store for its live-service shooter, with a recent Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League leak suggesting that Season 1 will be jam-packed with content.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Set a few months after Batman: Arkham Knight, players can pick from one of four antihero characters including Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark, as they attempt to stop Brainiac and the currently brainwashed Justice League.
