Acidic

Mortal Kombat X_20160302184858

One of the deadliest beings in the entire universe is now available to use in Mortal Kombat X. Alien, you may know it as a Xenomorph, is a quick and cunning fighter that uses it’s incredible range and speed to overpower its target. This new Kombatant has three variations that each have a specific focus for use in battle.


Acidic is the most basic of the three variations, relying on the use of Acid for lingering damage and defense, as well as vicious tail attacks. When using this style of Alien, you want to stay within medium range because its ranged projectiles do not go very far. It will still be difficult for opponents to keep any sort of real distance from you though, as the melee reach on this fighter is unparalleled.

Acidic is perfect for players who feel confident in their abilities and have no need to hang back. It requires quite a bit of aggression, but the fast pace and powerful strikes make up for putting yourself in harms way.

Acidic Specials (commands given for PS4 from a right facing position): 

  • Sizzle Strike – Up, X
  • Corrosive Sting – Down, Circle
  • Exo Sting – Down, Left, Triangle (can be enhanced with R2) (can be used in air)
  • Exo Sting – Down, Left, Triangle (can be used in air)
  • Acid Blood – Down, Left, Circle (can be enhanced with R2)
