FunPlus International recently revealed that they are collaborating with DC Comics to introduce a new hero into the game. This means that you can collect and play with one of the most recognizable villains in the DC universe, Joker.

He is a homicidal artist and agent of chaos. No name strikes terror onto the citizens of Gotham quite like the Joker. Many believe that he is a complete psychopath with no moral compass whatsoever. He is characterised by his green hair, a permanent grin across his face and his chalk-white skin.

You should note that his psychosis causes his personality to shift between a goofy prankster and a mass murderer within a number of seconds. This makes it impossible to predict his next move. This unpredictability makes him a very dangerous opponent.

Similar to the other heroes in State of Survival, Joker also features unique skills and abilities to aid him on the battlefield.

Joker’s abilities

Since the Joker is a famous DC character, his skills and abilities in the game are very fitting to his personality and characteristics. The following table indicates Joker’s skills and a description of each:

Once activated, Joker throws a joke-in-the-box at the designated area, which attracts nearby infected and explodes in seconds. Additionally, it releases a laughing gas. Those affected by the gas will enter a state of confusion. Every 6 turns, the hero releases a joke-in-the-box on the target of his attack. This will cause a stun effect which lasts for one turn. Afterwards, it will switch between stun, silence and disarm in that order.

Doomsday Party

The Joke-in-the-box explodes and starts a party. It increases the attack of all units on the battlefield by 100 percent for 4 seconds. Every time a joke-in-the-box is released, it will increase the damage dealt to all allies by 10 percent.


When attacking, there is a small chance of throwing food at the target. The food will explode when it hits a target, dealing 56.4 percent damage. It will also reduce the target’s moving speed by 30 percent. The hero causes disruption to all enemy units. This increases the damage taken of enemy infantry by 5 percent for 1 turn.
