Combine the Right Classes

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught features several different Fighter classes that define expected behavior, Ability types, and core stats. Each class features defined strengths and weaknesses, so build accordingly:

Assassin: Melee Fighters that specialize in taking out high-priority foes by moving from foe to foe. Very high Attack, but lower Health than Warriors.

Warriors: Melee Fighters that focus on dealing damage. A good balance of above average Attack and Defense with high Health.

Attacker: Ranged Fighters that deal damage from a distance, avoiding engagements. High Attack, but low Defense.

Sniper: Ranged Fighters that specialize in taking out high priority foes from a distance. They have the highest Attack of any class, but very low Health and Defense.

Defender: Melee Fighters that specialize in withstanding attacks from foes. They have the highest Health and Defense of any class.

Support: Ranged Fighters that generally focus on fortifying their team by applying buffs, directly healing teammates, or debuffing foes. Moderate Defense with a slightly higher balance of Attack and Health.

Placement Matters

It is incredibly important where you place your chosen Fighters on the battlefield. A strong team is made even mightier with strategic placement. Defenders and Warriors are best utilized in the front, while Sniper and Support Fighters with less Defense are great for picking off foes from the backline. Be sure to view the battlefield prior to each encounter. As waves of foes will consist of different arrangements and classes, you can craft a fool-proof strategy based on what you see koming in future waves. Take some time, experiment, and don’t be afraid to try new strategies that your opponents won’t be expecting.

Mind, Body, Spirit

Each Fighter in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught aligns with one of three Affinities: Mind, Body, or Spirit. Some Fighters, for example, may be strong against Mind but weak against Body, so learning your Fighter’s Affinity will help you build a better team for withstanding the challenges ahead.


Be sure to check each Fighter’s specific Abilities to not only learn how they play, but also what secondary effects they possess that can really turn the tide of kombat.

Many Fighters have synergies that you might not notice at first glance. For instance, Baraka can inspire fellow Tarkatan teammates by stacking damage bonuses from Bleed effects, while Mileena’s Abilities focus on dealing additional damage to foes suffering from Bleed. Outfitting a team of Tarkatan fighters with both Mileena and Baraka makes for an incredibly powerful, blood-thirsty battalion.

Experiment with different kombinations of Fighters to discover additional synergies!

Gear Up for the Fight

Gear is incredibly important to your overall success, and you’ll unlock plenty of it through natural game progression. Equip Gear to Fighters that amplify their natural strengths, and look out for set bonuses, additional power ups for equipping a complete set to a single Fighter. Kollecting and equipping the proper Gear can be the difference between a mighty victory and an untimely demise.
