Injustice 2 | Starfire Combo Guide Videos
Recently, Injustice 2 released projectile heavy Starfire into the mix of an already projectile heavy arena. Starfire has effective tools at all ranges and an exceptional crossover heavy attack as well as the incredible anti-air back and medium attack. She can combo almost anything into her character power which itself is a great keepaway tactic. She has a forward plus medium attack that dashes forward fast and far that can create some combo options. Here are a few combos from easy staples to frame specific timed combos.
Injustice 2 Starfire Combo Guide | Key
Moveset for Starfire's combo videos below:
1 = the light attack button (PS4: square, XBOX: X)
2 = the medium attack button (PS4: triangle, XBOX: Y)
3 = the heavy attack button (PS4: X, XBOX: A)
4 = the power / ability button (PS4: circle, XBOX: B)
F = Forward; press the joystick/pad towards your opponent horizontally.
B = Back; tap away from the opponent on the directional pad/joystick horizontally.
U = Up, Jump Up; tap upward on the directional pad/joystick.
D = Down, Courch; tap down on the directional pad/joystick.
MB = the Meter Burn button; press the meter burn button. Use requires timing with another attack.
Don't forget that blocking is similar to Street Fighter, except you press only down to block low. Pressing back and down (diagonal back-down) will get you in a heap of trouble as you randomly complete HCF (half circle forward) motions if an opponent crosses you over (jumps over you and then attacks).
RT = Right Trigger. Can be remapped to a different button.

Commands: Jump over opponent, midair 3, D + 1, Shooting Star (D, B + 3), 4.
After the crossover, the D + 1 can easily be replaced by D + 2. This combo screams "Experiment with me!"

Commands: Call Your Knorfka (2, 3), Meter Burn Star Dust (D, B + 1, MB as projectile starts), Charged Star Punch (B + 3), jump forward with midair 3, D + 2, Shooting Star (D, B + 3), 4.
Train this to be your bread and butter. The "Call Your Khorfa" 2-3 chain is very strong compared to the other starters. Timing the Charged Star Punch after the Star Dust takes just a minute amount of practice. The jump forward 3 is difficult to time. You want to tap it after you have just passed the apex of your jump.
