how to unlock fatalities in mortal kombat xl

Since its inception, Mortal Kombat has been making headlines because of its over-the-top Fatalities, which are especially violent finishing attacks that players can execute at the end of matches. In Mortal Kombat 11, each character has two Fatalities they can use at the end of fights, but only one Fatality per character is available at the start of the game.

When first starting the game, there are 25 Mortal Kombat 11 Fatalities available to players – one for each character on the roster. However, since there are two Fatalities per character in Mortal Kombat 11, there are technically 50 Fatalities in the game, and players may be wondering how to unlock them all.

Where To Check Fatalities


While Mortal Kombat 11 players can always use the pause menu to check how to do Fatalities, they can also check to see which Fatalities they have unlocked and how to do them through another method. To check unlocked Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 11, go to Kustomize, and then click on Characters. Select the desired member of the Mortal Kombat 11 roster and whatever variation, and then use the right bumper to go to the Kosmetics tab. Then scroll over to the Finishers tab to see the locked Fatality and how to unlock it.

How To Unlock Fatalities In Mortal Kombat 11


There is one way to unlock Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 11, and that is by opening chests in the Krypt. NetherRealm is still working on balancing the Krypt so that the chests are more rewarding for players, but for now it’s safe to say that it may take quite a long time for players to unlock all of the Mortal Kombat 11 Fatalities.

Mortal Kombat 11 players can refer to our Krypt guide for more information on how to explore it, but the gist of it is that they use currency earned in-game to open chests. These chests yield random cosmetic rewards, including Fatalities.

Here are all the unlockable Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 11:


  1. Shao Kahn (Kahn-Sequences)
  2. Frost (The Cyber Initiative)
  3. Johnny Cage (Who Hired This Guy)
  4. Sonya Blade (Supply Drop)
  5. Cassie Cage (#GirlPower)
  6. Jax (Still Got It)
  7. Scorpion (Chain Reaction)
  8. Noob Saibot (Split Decision)
  9. Baraka (Rock, Paper, Baraka)
  10. Raiden (Direct Current)
  11. Jacqui Briggs (Nothin’ But Neck)
  12. Sub-Zero (Frozen In Time)
  13. Kano (Face Like A Dropped Pie)
  14. Kabal (Hooked)
  15. Liu Kang (Belly of the Beast)
  16. Kitana (Royal Execution)
  17. Kung Lao (Meat Slicer)
  18. Jade (Pole Dance)
  19. Skarlet (Heart Condition)
  20. Erron Black (Death Trap)
  21. D’Vorrah (Can’t Die)
  22. Kotal Kahn (Kat Food)
  23. Geras (Peeling Back)
  24. The Kollector (Head Lantern)
  25. Cetrion (Good and Evil)

In the future, it’s possible that Fatalities will be unlocked using other methods, but opening chests in the Krypt is the only way to unlock Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 11 at launch.

Let’s be real. The reason you’re playing Mortal Kombat instead of another fighting game is because of the game’s gratuitous gore. It’s okay. We get it. Fatalities are one of the main aspects that set the series apart from other fighters.
