As you play through the storyline of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, you’ll increase your story score and climb the online leaderboards, making all your friends jealous of your progress. Story score doesn’t always work as expected, though, so how do you increase it and what does it represent?
What is Story Score in Suicide Squad KTJL?
Story score is a number that represents your progress through the main storyline of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. It’s meant to be a quick way for other players to determine how many chapters you’ve completed, how strong your characters are, and how many side quests you’ve done.
It’s not strictly related to main campaign progress. You can still be very far in the story and have a low story score if you ignore side missions and don’t level up your characters, for example, or you can be in the opening chapters of the game and amass a high story score by completing Riddler challenges and Support Squad missions.
While this is a good idea on paper, there’s one major problem with the story score mechanic: it doesn’t work. Some people have noticed that their story score has remained the same after hours of gameplay, and some players are even getting different story scores than the people they’ve been playing through the campaign with. If you find yourself in that situation, it’s not your fault.
Like most server-related things in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, your story score will most likely adjust itself to a more accurate number after rebooting the game or waiting a few hours for the servers to recognize that you’ve made progress. Some players still have bugged story scores after all this time, though, so you might be one of the unlucky ones.
Thankfully, story score doesn’t affect anything in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. It’s just an inconsequential number that only represents your main story progress, which isn’t important after you roll credits and reach the endgame. That’s the real grind of Suicide Squad, and those leaderboards are the ones you should care about. Hopefully, Rocksteady will address the existing issues with story score and provide some information about what exactly raises it and by how much, but for now, it can be safely ignored while you chase better loot.
