The Flash in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a big threat. He's fast, somewhat smart, and has the most "dangerous" quips out of the entire Justice League.

With the right tools, however, you can beat this speedy hero. Here's how to eliminate The Flash in the game.

How to get rid of The Flash in Suicide Squad

You won't be able to defeat The Flash in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League until you have the right tools to take him down - and you won't get them until you meet a genius teen named the Toyman (Hiro) as part of the main story.

After helping the Toyman out on a quest with his enlarged toy truck, you'll eventually gain the Speed Force Decoupler. It's a shame he's a huge fan of The Flash, because the Suicide Squad now has to kill the infected hero.

Step-by-step instructions on how to beat the Flash

Before you take on the quest to defeat the Flash, it's a good idea to switch to Captain Boomerang. If you've read the comics, you'll know The Flash is Boomerang's nemesis. As this villain is psyched for battle, you'll gain extra XP and damage during the fight.

Also, if you find yourself struggling during your first clash with the Flash, finish some side quests first before attempting the fight. Additionally, make sure you have a strong SMG or pistol in hand. He's too fast for an accurate sniper shot.

Now that you're facing The Flash, you'll use the Speed Force Decoupler. He'll be invulnerable at first but when you see the red hero flashing blue like in the below picture, shoot the decoupler with the R1 button (right bumper). You can then start shooting The Flash, removing his HP on the top.

The Flash won't just let you hit him without returning the favour. He'll create balls of energy that explode. Look for the red perimeter on the floor and stay out of it. Later on in the fight, The Flash summons whirlwinds across the arena. Use Captain Boomerang's fast teleporting weapon to escape their ferocity.

As the battle reaches its conclusion, Barry Allen gets more desperate and will unleash two whirlwinds. Use Captain Boomerang's dashes as well as his boomerang to outmanoeuvre them. Keep removing his health until the hero passes out and dies. It's like a tough Destiny fight.
