Complete Red Hood Guide

Before heading into our guide for playing Red Hood inside Gotham Knights, let us first talk about his Origin story and how he became a part of Gotham city. Red Hood is also known to be Jason Todd, who Joker killed after Jason decided to bring Joker. He was eventually resurrected, and after he got his memories back, he started hating Batman and went against all the rules Batman had made. He believed in the ideology of killing villains to stop them for good rather than keeping them alive and expecting them to become good.

Best Playstyle with Red Hood

Red Hood is one of the more versatile characters you can play in Gotham Knights. Due to his abilities and attack types, you can use him from long-range and close-range. Depending on what you are up against, players can shift their style and deal lots of damage. Red Hood mainly focuses on Brute strength and dealing damage upfront by grabbing enemies and using his pistol.

In a way, you can call this character-heavy as he is equipped with some hard-hiding armor and raw strength. Apart from close-range combat using his pistols, you can also use Jason’s long-range weapon to deal damage from afar and keep your enemies guessing what hit them. Red Hood also has a remarkable ability that you can use to teleport to places using some magic platforms. So even if you get down on health, you can quickly escape a situation without dying.

Best Abilities for Red Hood

Among all abilities for Red Hood, two, in particular, are the best to unlock at any part of the game. Red Hood can be used both from long-range and close combat. So depending on what strategy players use, they should unlock abilities based on that. However, among all the skill trees below, we have added the best abilities you can unlock.

Critical Expertise

Critical Expertise will increase the critical damage by 20%. This skill can be the most useful if you unlock the skill sets that increase the chances of dealing critical damage. You can unlock this skill in all of the characters, but since Red Hood has abilities that can increase the chances of critical hits, it can be very useful.

Large Grab

This ability can be the most useful when dealing with enemies you are larger in size. First, defeat all the small enemies and leave the mini-boss for the last bits of the fight. Now go ahead and perform heavy attacks to break their guard and knock them to the ground. Perform a Large grab to deal massive amounts of damage, and you can add something like Extended Grab Window to make any enemy grabbable and do a good amount of damage.
