Maintaining a full squad of four characters can be a hassle in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Most people only want to main one character, but it’s important to have each member of the squad leveled up if you want to take on the game’s hardest content.
Thankfully, leveling up is super easy no matter how far you are in the main story. Whether you’re in the process of taking down the Justice League or you’re endlessly farming Incursions and chasing better loot in the endgame, you can raise any member of the squad to the maximum level in just a few hours.
How to Level Up Fast in Suicide Squad KTJL
The best way to level up any character in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is to do as many side missions as possible. If you haven’t finished your Support Squad missions, those are the best places to start since they unlock new mechanics, Afflictions, and crafting recipes. There are also repeatable side quests throughout Metropolis that involve rescuing civilians and taking out Brainiac‘s forces.
Occasionally, you’ll see a glowing pink icon next to a mission on the map. This icon indicates that a certain member of the squad is Psyched Up for the mission and will receive bonus XP and damage if you play as them. It’s basically a free way to get double XP, so you should always take advantage of the Psyched Up bonus when you have the chance.
Lastly, make sure to destroy rooftop encampments and destroy carrier drones between missions. Rooftop encampments are the shielded turrets that you see on top of buildings that are guarded by a small squad of enemies, and carrier drones are the floating robots that carry civilians away to be converted into Brainiac’s soldiers. You can’t destroy carrier drones until later in the story, but you can destroy rooftop encampments in just a few seconds with a well-placed grenade and a few bullets.
Best Endgame XP Farm in Suicide Squad KTJL
If you’re in the endgame of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, then there are a few other avenues that you have access to for leveling. While Metropolis missions are still an excellent way to gain XP, especially if you focus on completing Raising Hell objectives and eliminating any Hit Squads that Brainiac sends after you, you can earn even more XP by playing endgame missions.
Incursions are the main endgame mission type in Suicide Squad, and the “World’s Un-Fair” Incursion is the best one to farm for XP since it’s the shortest of them all. Once your character has a decent build, just repeatedly farm this Incursion to level up fast and earn some gear in the process. In addition to that, you can also try the Killing Time survival mission to gain access to an endless stream of enemies and a solid source of XP. You won’t unlock this mission until you reach Finite Crisis level 10, however.
In essence, the leveling process is the same for all Suicide Squad characters. Just patrol the city and do whatever Metropolis missions pop up while taking out encampments along the way or spam the fastest Incursion if you have the Promethium to spare. Thankfully, any squad upgrades that you unlock by gaining levels on a character that is already level 30 will apply to your entire team, even if they haven’t reached the level cap. These are small bonuses to damage and other stats, but they add up.
