Mortal Kombat X has managed to include a couple of new tricks up its sleeve as well as a welcome focus on detail. Both can be seen if you just happen to take a step into Mortal Kombat X‘s Krypt. Remember having to just pick between letters in the alphabet, as you walked around a huge grid? Well, gone are those days. The Krypt is now a large area with branching paths, secret passageways, mysterious timed chests, and its very own little adventure. In order to make your way through the Krypt, you will need not only Koins (Mortal Kombat X‘s currency), but also a few tools left behind by some of Mortal Kombat‘s most beloved fighters.
The tools are scattered about the different areas present in the Krypt, and some require the unlocking of special doors and passageways. Below, you will find an easy-to-use guide of each inventory item’s location in the Krypt, and what you will need to have (if anything) in order to obtain the item. To make things a bit easier, we’ve placed them in the order that you should go for them while exploring Mortal Kombat X‘s Krypt.
Located on the Walkway of Souls at coordinates (-13,19) in the Krypts starting area. You will find a head pinned to a tree by Scorpions signature weapon. Walk up and interact with the tree to collect this inventory item.
Continue on after finding Scorpion’s Spear until you find the Frost Path area. Head to coordinates (-21,20) and pick up an orb of the cryomancer’s ice magic.
After finding the previous items head on over to the Spider Kave to collect a few more of the Krypt’s inventory items. Proceed to (5,11) and pick up the sparking staff of the thunder god.
Head over to the Scorpion Pits (also located in the Spider Kave) and make your way to the coordinates (18,10). You will need Scorpion’s Spear to get across and collect the Spider Gem.
Kung Lao’s Hat
Continue over to the Chamber of Bones in the North West section of the Spider Kave. At coordinates (-7,12) you will find Kung Lao’s bladed hat resting cozily inside of a corpse.
In the north western area of the Spider Kave section of the crypt you will notice that there are actual hallways that have been built. Head over there and locate (6,30) in the Widow’s Pass. Here you will find Reptile’s Claw entangled in some web.
Kotal Kahn’s Sword
This item takes a bit of puzzle work in order to obtain. Head over to the Switch Passage (13,33) and solve the lever puzzle that can be found there. The correct order to pull the levers is 4>1>3>2 (the numbers are indicated by spiders at the base of each lever). Afterwards, proceed through the now unlocked door and pick up this inventory item at (22,34).
Now that you have Kotal Kahn’s Sword head on over to coordinates (6,35) in the Switch Passage in order to gain access to a new area, the Shadow Spider’s Hive. Walk over to (5,40) to find this Krypt inventory item nested in stone. You can now exit the Spider Kave.
Liu Kang’s Fireball
With Kenshi’s Katana in hand, head over to the entrance of Shao Khan’s tomb (-2,21). Upon entering, Liu Kang’s Fireball will be directly ahead of you at (0,6). The item grants you access to the White Lotus Temple located at (-20,4) in the Krypt’s first area. Head left once you pick this cool looking item up.
After activating the first lever in the tomb (requires Sub-Zero’s Iceball, but you have that already) continue around the hallway towards coordinates (-5,18). Here you will find Ermac’s Pendant just waiting to be picked up. Continue through the hall activating the remaining two switches (Reptile’s and Ermac’s).
Jax’s Rocket Launcher
After activating all three switches, you can head back to the first area of Shao Khan’s tomb and use the main lever there. This will grant access to Kahn’s Stronghold. Walk in and claim this powerful weapon for yourself at (0,12). Now you’re ready to collect the final item. Head back to the Krypt’s starting area.
Make your way to the Shrine Entrance (-11,12) and blast open the gate using your brand-new Rocket Launcher. Inside is a statue that allows you to wager Koins for items. Bet the maximum of 10,000 Koins, which you happen to get just for opening this gate, and you will receive the Kamidogu which grants access to the Netherrealm gate of the Krypt (-24,18).
There you have it, every Krypt inventory item is now yours. Go forth and explore, kill random QTE enemies for koins, and open up everything. For more guides, tips, tricks, and information on Mortal Kombat X be sure to check out our ever-growing wiki.
