    Basic Tips & Recommended Attacks

    Cyborg loves playing keep-away. Hi ranged attacks can land anywhere on the screen, and he comes equipped with a grapple ability that’ll place him in either corner of the screen – not to mention his disruptor that sends opponents flying back. Cyborg isn’t the easiest fighter to play as, thanks to his retreat tactics and not-too impressive ranged damage output, but use all his powers in conjunction and he can kick butt.

    Repair Circuit (Character Power): Hold down the power button to restore Cyborg’s health. It isn’t as rapid as it implies, but if you constantly use after knocking back opponents or retreating, you’ll be regaining a significant amount of health.

    Nova Blaster (Special): Cyborg’s basic ranged special.

    Power Fist (Special): A powerful launcher that can catch opponents a few steps off from Cyborg. Transition into Target Acquired or Nova Blaster to keep them bouncing.

    Sonic Disruptor (Special): A simple way to send your enemies flying back. Great for getting melee fighters off Cyborg.

    Humanity (Combo): A simple powerful combo that will send opponents flying back.

    Lost Faith: Another powerful blow-back combo. Even when blocked, Cyborg will be able to continue to attack unphased.

    VS Deathstroke

    Welcome back Deathstroke. Remember all of Cyborg’s abilities to escape close-range encounters? Don’t use them here. Deathstroke’s ranged game is much stronger than Cyborg’s, there’s no winning in playing it his way. Instead, jump in close and unleash combos.

    Deathstroke can’t rip apart the landscape, but Cyborg can. Use your stage hazard advantage to knock Deathstroke around, but don’t stay away for too long.

    Use Humanity, Lost Faith, and give the Techno Tackle a shot – just remember, Techno Tackle is best when combined with Meter Burn.

    VS Lex Luthor

    It’s robot vs. robot in the fight against Lex Luthor, who has his own set of Cyborg-like moves. Lex can shield himself from harm, fire lasers from the sky, and suck enemies in close instead of pushing them away.

    Like Deathstroke, you’ll want to fight up close. Use combo attacks like before, especially those with a low or light strike to start off – you’re almost guaranteed to beat Lex Luthor to the punch with any of those.

    Lex loves to take control of the battlefield – he’ll summon drones that fire tiny, weak projectiles, drop mines, and basically force you to back off until you’re in his missile or laser range.

    The Nova Blaster is very effective here. When he makes you run, use it to keep the armored man interrupted.

    Otherwise, fight it out up-close where Cyborg’s improved speed will keep him winning.

    VS Catwoman

    Finally, this fight allows Cyborg to use his best functions. Catwoman’s ranged game is weak, she can only pull opponents in close with her whip.

    When she gets in close, hit her with Humanity or Lost Faith, then blow her back with Sonic Disruptor. If it looks like she’s about to pummel Cyborg, break free and retreat with a back or forward grapple, then answer with Nova Blaster.

    Cyborg’s super strength will help here too. Use the fixtures to the left, or the floating devices over head to easily lay more damage on Catwoman.

    Don’t let Catwoman build her combo meter! Every time she lands several hits in a row, she’ll build her combo, which she can unleash as one powerful attack up close. Interrupt her combo meter with Nova Blaster, or any other attack to avoid the cat’s claws.

    VS Cyborg

    This is a mirror match, so you already know all your opponent’s moves. Don’t let him use the stage hazards here – they’ll be destroyed if you use them yourself. Easy, and fun!

    The AI Cyborg is quick on the trigger, and he’ll use his Meter Burn abilities often. Get in close and use light combo attacks to weaken him, but be prepared for his Power Fist, which he’ll likely use with an added Sonic Disruptor or Meter Burn Nova Blast.

    Otherwise, fight aggressively. The AI won’t block much, and it won’t punish you for making mistakes – go in and go all out.

    No character creation mode, bah..
    Even Wrestling games have character creation mode.

    Wrestling is technically a sport, so the introduction of new characters (hence, create a wrestler) is plausible. Injustice is a licensed franchise from DC and they would never allow a create-a-fighter option.

    But doing it in DC Universe online its ok right?

    I’m just saying that I believe we have to break this barrier in gaming. I’m Hispanic and I wont buy this game or any fighting game that does not implement a character customization option. I don think its worth a 60 dollar price tag on something I can finish in a day without it having replay value. I mean there isn’t even an Asian superhero for crying out loud. Not to mention the1 token black guy.

    I for one love games so much that these industries don’t care about catering to the player and that’s the reason no one is buying there games. Then they start whining that they didn’t hit there sales mark because they believe people are pirating. No its because they cater to one demographic.

    While I appreciate the Character Game Guide (very useful)
    I would prefer the guide to be in the format that you used for Mortal Kombat
    ie One use a universal Key 1,2,3,4 for the buttons (or atleast make some sort of key so that we can id the difference between the X-Box 360 and PS3 versions) and
    Apart from just speaking out what you are inputting can you also write the combo down (just like you did in the MK Videos) That may be a lot easier for certain people (it certainly was for me) instead of trying to strain their eyes on what is on the side screen (ie the small display of buttons input display)

    I hope that I haven’t offended anyone with any of my comments and I am wondering if you are going to put up anymore videos of characters in the future. Also please show Enhanced Versions of the Super Moves and can you also tell what are the Strengths and Weakness of a character. Ie Lex Luthor may be a strong character but has slow speed but doesn’t have that many combos etc… and who a said character has an advantage against and who he is weakened/disadvantage against.

    I hope that you consider my suggestions and don’t consider my post as Spam even though it is in my name. :)

    My Bad I carefully noted your videos after a couple of watching so I can now see the button display for the combos though a universal key might be a bit easier, it is still better than nothing.

    Would like a lex luthor video as well.
    Also the other suggestions though please consider them
