Red Hood

Game: Gotham Knights

One of four playable characters in Gotham Knights, Red Hood’s strengths are his grappling abilities and dishing out serious damage from afar.

Red Hood’s skill trees are all relatively similar, in that they’re mainly focused on dealing more damage — the Marksman tree buffs ranged damage, the Brawler tree improves his grappling, and Vengeance adds general DPS.

This tree focuses on ranged damage output per second, speeding up your attacks, boosting your critical attacks, or rewarding longer aim time with increased damage.
