Version 1.04 ofMortal Kombat 11 is dwell, and evidently NetherRealm Studios has patched the so-called “head glitch” out of the sport’s Krypt. Though it was short-lived (the sunshine that burns twice as shiny burns half as lengthy, eh?), the exploit allowed savvy gamers to skip an excessively grindy course of and accumulate on a singular space’s rewards with minimal effort.
TheMortal Kombat 11 Krypt homes numerous chests, and few areas stand out fairly like Shang Tsung’s Warrior Shrine. The shrine is lined with 26 pedestals topped with spikes, every with a character-specific “Head Chest” laid at their toes. The recreation’s problem to the participant is to carry out 50 Fatalities and Brutalities on every of the fighters inside the recreation’s just lately rebalanced Towers of Time mode so as to unlock their corresponding Head Chests. Anyone in addition to competition-tier professionals is aware of that that is an insane expectation that even collection creator Ed Boon would battle to clarify away, so, fittingly, theMortal Kombat 11 neighborhood just lately discovered their approach round it by exploiting a surprisingly easy glitch. Now, it seems the Head Glitch’s time is unfortunately up.
Although PS4 gamers ofMortal Kombat 11 have been beforehand in a position to merely maintain the X button whereas loading the Krypt and proceed doing so till reaching the Warrior Shrine and (in some way) opening their desired Head Chest of selection, patch 1.04 for the PS4 model seems to have eliminated the exploit, based on GameFaqs. It’s presumed that NetherRealm caught sensible to gamers’ workaround because the Head Glitch went viral among the manyMortal Kombat on-line neighborhood, however the developer has but to furnish patch notes to substantiate that its elimination was the first focus of the small replace.
It’s no secret that NetherRealm workers work very laborious, so it is little shock that the replace was rolled out so rapidly after gamers found the glitch’s existence. At the time of writing, model 1.04 has but to roll out for Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC gamers, so any non-PS4 gamers trying to slap decapitated heads onto loot-giving spikes with out having to carry out probably a whole bunch of ending strikes could wish to give it a attempt earlier than it is taken away for good.
WhileMortal Kombat 11 is pretty stingy with its beauty rewards, NetherRealm addressing the sport’s Head Glitch is not actually in the identical territory of Bioware squashing the one bug (lovingly referred to as the “loot bathe” by gamers) that fastened loot points inAnthemhigher than any intentional repair ever did. Beyond the fighter’s points with microtransactions,Mortal Kombat 11 is a wonderful recreation in its personal proper; one thing a variety of new video games cannot boast in 2019. However, gamers’ willingness to bypass even legit sides of its synthetic grind speaks to the truth that even good full-price video games are higher when gamers really feel like content material is not being arbitrarily locked away from them.
