Mortal Kombat 1 Stealth-Dropped a Secret Brutality for All Characters

1 month ago 47

Mortal Kombat 1 players have discovered a secret Brutality for all characters that developer NetherRealm appears to have stealth-dropped into the game.

All Mortal Kombat 1 characters have Brutalities — unique moves that end a match in a particularly brutal fashion. They’re triggered by doing an extra input command on top of a specific combo ender or move that wins the final round. Most of the characters in the game have six brutalities, but ever since Mortal Kombat 1 launched in September last year, players have discovered secret Brutalities, too.

As reported by EventHubs, Mortal Kombat 1 players are only now discovering a secret Brutality that works for every character in the game. It involves depleting your opponent’s health bar with a back throw that sees your character launch their hapless foe straight into the game’s camera. To trigger this match ender, hold up and back punch after performing the throw.

X / Twitter user Mortal_Kombat_Addict revealed a few examples of this secret Brutality in the clip below (warning, as with all things Mortal Kombat, the video is a gorefest!):

The secret Brutality was discovered after the launch of Mortal Kombat 1 Season 5: Storms, which also saw the release of DLC character Ermac for Kombat Pack owners. Speaking of Ermac, the soul-loving ninja has a new Brutality ripped straight from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.

Season 5: Storms revolves around the arrival of Raiden as the main boss in Invasions mode, and includes fresh challenges, story elements, boss battles, and rewards. Season 5: Storms runs until June 4. Kameo fighter Mavado is available May 2024.
