For owners of the Ultimate/Digital Deluxe editions or “Fighter Pack 1,” Injustice 2‘s first DLC character, Red Hood, has been available for a few days now — and many players are scrambling to see what the revived assassin can do in these early days of “exclusive access.”

ElChakotay brings us a combo video featuring some very stylish sequences, including placing two mines, as well as two meter burn shurikens in a single combo, along with some great usage of his Trait — which allows the former Jason Todd to add shock pads to his dual pistols — granting him access to a rekka chain to extend his combos and notably increase his damage output.

LOSTyGIRL has compiled all of Hood’s intro dialogue, and shows off some Premiere skins.

As he’s done with other characters, rooflemonger brings us both a bread & butter combo guide — covering multiple situations and difficulty levels — as well as a tips & tricks video going over applications for his tools and early findings.

Cody Dickson bring us a video “encompassing all of Red Hood’s abilities,” showing off combos from jump-ins, mine setups, meterless and metered options, Trait juggles, air throw setups, and even a full combo into his super.

Lastly, Shujinkydink shows us combos for mid-screen and  corner situations, as well as a potentially impractical-yet fancy sequence off of his F3 overhead, involving a Trait cancel.

We’re sure to see more tech for the character emerge in the coming days and weeks — especially since he releases for all players this Tuesday, July 20th — so stay tuned to Shoryuken.
