Officially speaking Mortal Kombat 1 it is not yet available on the market, and will not be available until Tuesday 19 September, in any case the Early Access and the various Beta and Stress Tests have already highlighted the values offered by the various fighters. Here are the ones that we think are the absolute best at the moment.
The meta of Mortal Kombat 1 cannot yet be defined as completely settledfor the simple reason that the vast majority of users have not yet had the opportunity to crowd the game servers and fully dissect the new combat dynamics, revolutionized by the introduction of Kameos, and the new moves of each individual character.
Who are the strongest fighters in Mortal Kombat 1?
Based on what we have been able to ascertain, both firsthand and by reading the opinions of other players online, at the moment the strongest fighters in Mortal Kombat 1 seem to be Liu Kang, Kenshi, Sub-Zero and Johnny Cage.
Liu Kang is a character quite easy to learn, plus in Mortal Kombat 1 he has extended his move set thanks to the new fire powers, which among other things allow him to hit from a distance with flaming projectiles. Kenshi and his ghost are certainly less immediate to use, but once you have mastered them you will be able to corner any opponent. Sub-Zero, for his part, can turn opponents into icicles, is very agile and has abilities combo extenders that can launch opponents from one side of the screen to the other. Johnny Cage, on the other hand, in addition to being a very versatile fighter, can also boast the new Hype mode: by exhibiting over the top poses and provocations during the battle, the Hollywood star can fill a Star-shaped indicator until his special moves are canceled out with other special ones, thus allowing him to string together more than one in a row.
We are well aware that electing the strongest characters of all is objectively impossible, since a lot also depends on the playing style and personal affinities. Hanging out online we learn, for example, that other players’ preferences also include fighters such as Li Mei e Kitana. If you are participating in Mortal Kombat 1 Early Access, we are curious to know which fighter you are using and which ones you think are most effective at the moment: let us know in the comments!
