The laughing butcher is on the loose in Infinite Crisis.
Infinite Crisis, the free-to-play MOBA set in the DC Universe, is adding champions at an almost alarming rate. We've recently taken a look at Flash and Poison Ivy, and now Turbine have revealed the most infamous serial killer around, Gaslight Joker.
Gaslight Joker, also known as the laughing butcher, is a melee enforcer champion who chops his way through enemies. His passive, Blood Money, allows Gaslight Joker to regenerate health over time whenever he picks up credits. It's important to make excellent use of this ability, considering all of his other moves cost health to activate.
His first usable ability, Fetid Cleaver, causes his next auto attack to deal bonus damage, and he also gains bonus attack damage based on his maximum health. The move also heals Joker based how much extra bonus damage he can dish out.
Developed by Turbine, Infinite Crisis sees the worlds of DC's Multiverse come crashing together, pitting twisted incarnations of some of your favorite heroes and villains, like Batman, Green Lantern, Catwoman and The Flash, against each other in head-to-head multiplayer combat. With characters like Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman, it's DC Comics superheroes like you've never seen them before!
Shower of Filth is Gaslight Joker's second ability, and it's pretty funny. When used, Joker throws a ham (yes, the kind you eat on Easter) at his enemies causing everyone it hits to run in fear and receive a debuff called Filthy that makes healing and regeneration moves less effective.
Continuing with the ham theme, Joker's third ability is Ham Snack. When used, Joker generates a shield that protects him from damage and the effects of the next enemy skill used against him. The shield also grants bonus resilience, making disables less effective.
Gaslight Joker's Ultimate ability, Rat Swarm, summons a disgusting horde of rats that surrounds Joker and deals damage and slows enemies caught in the area. The rats also do more damage to enemies contaminated with the Filthy debuff.
With abilities that both heal and deal damage, Gaslight Joker is the perfect initiator when it comes to team fights. If you want to check out all his moves and some tips and tricks to playing the champion, watch the Infinite Crisis video below.
