Mortal Kombat is the famous game franchise around the world for its brutal gore scenes, and complex controls. Only an experienced player can fight their way through the deadly tournament and avoid the fatality death. While this is the main point of the game, NetherRealm Studios do give the casual players a way out to enjoy the game with accessible options and some character with a fairly controlling system that even a novice can master after several hours of practice.

We are all impressed by our friends who can win the whole tournament on Brutal difficulty blindfolded, but for the slow-handed player like us, there are a lot of options to consider to start comfortably and have fun while playing the game. If you are out of practice or just got into the game, these are the top 5 kombatants you definitely should try in Mortal Kombat 11.

5. Johnny Cage

Johnny Cage

In the previous game, Cage was introduced with a wild and varied combo that might a little bit difficult for newcomers. In Mortal Kombat 11, his combos are short and simple and mostly aim for the high and middle area in swift succession. He has Shadow kick as an effective gap-closing. After a few games, you will be able to get used to his moves and buttons to put up a good show.

4. Ruler of Outworld, Shao Kahn

There is the reason why this character isn't free, and he will be your best investment in the entire game. If you fought against Kahn before, you would know how annoying he was. He is quite fast for his size and has a series of ranged attacks for gap-closing like releasing his spear or even leaping forward with a downward hammer strike. Kahn is known for his brutal strength and does tons of damage with short combos. He is one of the most versatility characters, his combos are simple and easy to learn, the only downside is you have to pay money to get him.

3. The Spectre, Noob Saibot

Most people overlook Boov Saibot, Sub-Zero dead older brother. Mortal Kombat keeps the old double team mechanic of Noob. But this time, he teams up with his own shadow. Noob also has a fast, plain and simple combo, but what makes him scary is his special abilities. He can project his shadow to attack for him several times which might remind you of Zed in League of Legend. His gap-closing skill can combos with numerous attacks and his combos are easy to grasp. His skill works best in close distance, he is a safe option if you want to try to be a little bit aggressive.

2. Vengeance Incarnate, Scorpion

Scorpion is one of the oldest characters that have attached to the franchise over the years. Scorpion is built to be noob-friendly with easy combos, medium damage output, simple special attacks, and varied skills. He can fight from any range but work best in close range. His combos and attacks are short and the easiest to learn and master. You should always look into this character if you want to have some fun while learning the game and master the character over time.

1. The Chosen One, Liu Kang

Liu Kang is also one of the most popular figures in the Mortal Kombat series. In Mortal Kombat 11, he has the most basic combos and attacks and lots of his special attacks require the same series of buttons (away, towards, face button). In addition, he is given a nunchuck at the start of the fight, even a kid can smash the buttons and win a fight. Most of his attacks can be used by multiple presses of the same button which is why he is extremely easy for new players while being fearsome in the hand of a competent player.
