Best Mortal Kombat X Tips Part 3: Defending

- February 28, 2016 -

Now that I’ve covered general play and attacking, you need to know my Mortal Kombat X tips for defending.

Ideally, you always want to be the one dealing damage and keeping your opponent under pressure, but that’s not always possible.

Here are the tips you need to know.

Use Combo Breakers

It can be tempting to save your meter for a flashy x ray attack, but that’s not always the wisest option. Don’t be afraid of using combo breakers to mess up your opponent’s attack, just make sure you have a plan for what you’re going to do after you break.

Wake Up at Different Times

If you get up after being knocked down right away, you’re encouraging your opponent to continue their momentum. Hold down to delay your wake up so that you can screw with whoever you’re facing. You’ll become unpredictable.

Make Use of Wake Up Attacks

Certain moves such as Scorpion’s teleport can be performed as you’re waking up. This can help you get the drop on your opponent, but beware, the timing can be a little tricky. Make sure you don’t over use wake up attacks because you’ll become easy to ready.

That’s it! If you follow all of my Mortal Kombat X tips, you’re bound to not suck. Not sucking is not the same as being good though, stay tuned to the tips section for advanced play and character specific combo videos.
