If you are enjoying Mortal Kombat 11, you will know in regards to the grind.
Mortal Kombat 11’s soul-crushing grind lets down what’s in any other case an excellent combating recreation (for extra on the way it all works, try our lately revealed overview).
So, it comes as no shock to see gamers uncover varied methods to beat the grind, utilizing a mix of exploits, the AI and even makeshift controller button urgent contraptions.
First up, we now have a preferred exploit that gamers are utilizing to farm hearts. Hearts is one in every of three digital currencies within the recreation, and are used to open the Krypt’s greatest chests. Unfortunately, Mortal Kombat 11 is miserly relating to dishing them out to gamers. You get 5 for doing a Fatality or a Brutality on the finish of a victorious recreation. If you do not win, you do not get the chance to earn hearts.
THERE MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD.
Players have turned to the Krypt to farm hearts. In the Krypt, folks hanging from ceilings and different grubby gubbins may be pulled to your place utilizing Scorpion’s spear. Once pulled, your character will tear the unfortunate soul aside, and you will obtain one, two or three hearts.
Now, gamers have discovered an exploit that makes farming hearts a doddle – a monotonous doddle, however a doddle nonetheless. Here’s the way it works:
Get to the raise that takes you right down to Goro’s Lair, particularly the half subsequent to The Kollector’s room.
Enter The Kollector’s room and pull the man hanging on the left. Nab a coronary heart or two.
Go again to the raise, head up, then head again down. The man could have respawned a bit of bit nearer to the raise. Spear him, nab the hearts. Head again to the raise, go up and again down once more, rinse and repeat. Eventually you will spawn the man proper subsequent to the raise door, so you do not even should run to him in The Kollector’s room.
Testing this exploit, I used to be in a position to farm round 15 hearts in 5 minutes, which is greater than I would get from enjoying video games in The Tower of Time or in on-line ranked battles. It’s very, very boring although, and I count on NetherRealm will patch this exploit out sooner relatively than later. Until then, gamers are having a area day.
Moving on, we now have using AI-controlled characters to farm forex for you.
As with Injustice 2, Mortal Kombat 11 lets you might have the pc management your character for you for sure recreation modes. You can even put factors into varied behaviour parameters. Since Mortal Kombat 11 got here out, gamers have discovered a couple of overpowered builds of shadowy ninja Noob Saibot, and are utilizing him to scrub up within the towers. Other characters are additionally helpful within the Towers, however AI Noob is definitely an early favorite.
The best AI farming methodology appears to be to set Noob Saibot to work on the Endless tower and see how far he can get. I’ve seen gamers report he is managed to get within the 50s for them, which is nice going. Noob will even carry out Brutalities and Fatalities, securing these valuable hearts. Take that, grind!
The solely situation, after all, if you need to press a button on the controller after every battle to proceed. So, gamers are fashioning button-pressing units to completely automate the method.

Now, that is hardly a enjoyable factor for the participant to do. Watching the AI play Mortal Kombat 11 is not what I am considering doing. But gamers are letting the AI get on with farming forex whereas they do different issues, resembling work or examine.
Thanks to the man who prompt it. My scorpion AI does and wonderful job whereas I am at work. from r/MortalKombat

As lengthy as Mortal Kombat 11’s grind stays so… grindy, gamers will proceed to play the sport in these sorts of the way. Is it a difficulty? Looking at Mortal Kombat 11’s early days neighborhood, gamers are having fun with coming collectively to work out the perfect methods to beat the grind, sharing character variations, AI builds and Towers of Time methods, and I believe that is fairly cool.
AI Noob, in the meantime, has grow to be one thing of a meme. Thanks for all of your arduous work, buddy!
