Raiden, Black Manta and the Black Lightning premium skin are all now available to use in Injustice 2. If you’ve purchased the characters but can’t use them in-game, here’s how to fix the problem.

For some reason, Injustice 2 struggles to auto-install new content. You basically need to give your console a kick up the butt to get things going.


Xbox One

  • To to the Xbox home screen and navigate to the Injustice 2 icon (you may have to do this within the My Games & Apps section).
  • Hit the Options button, then select “Manage Game”
  • Scroll to “Ready to Install” — the “Red Hood” DLC can be installed from here.


  • Quit out of Injustice 2 and head to the PS4 home screen. Then navigate to the Injustice 2 icon.
  • Scroll down to find related items and select “My Addons”
  • The Red Hood DLC should be accessible — and downloadable — from there.

Individual characters are usually able to be purchased a week after their fighter bundle. Stay tuned. These characters are part of the game’s “Fighter Pack 2” and will be joined by Hellboy in the not-too-distant future.

Injustice 2 is out now on Xbox One and PS4.
