That update made a world of difference just beat stage 2 and 3 first time through. Used the good health crystal (50% health boost) and an attack consumable (Mileena sais, blood ravens etc). Those two consumables coupled with my main Noob and it was easy as!

Wait those rockets are unblockable as well????? Well F that lol. This is only stage 2, has 2 towers and with 3 BS modifiers. 3! Arrow stuns you for forever, rockets are unblockable and if you can somehow manage to block/dodge arrow and jump over rockets, the third modifier (Jacqui/Cassie) will hit you or the character you are facing. If that is not enough, Cassie(don't know about Jacqui) has full screen earthquake/electric thing with her drone which you need to block as well. So even if you time your jump over the rockets perfectly, that shit will still hit you. Who the hell comes up with this?? And that's only stage 2. And there are 30? What a BS this gauntlet...

They dropped a patch today the XB1 to make all towers easier, and rewarding.

Yeah well I'm on PS4 so patch was days ago and Gauntlet, stage 2 is pretty much the same. Still 3 modifiers, rockets still unblockable (which should be blockable now).

With stage 2 what I did was play scorpion and stayed close to cassue and Jacqui to avoid takeda, when she would use kung jin id use bo rai cho's konsumable to prevent her from hitting me. It took a few attempts but you judt have to be close quarters the entire time

It works, now, If you give him the armor komsumable and other perks then you’ll get over stage 7

My Noob still can't beat stage 2...

In case you didn't see my suggestion above for how I beat stages 1-7:

Use Baraka.
5 Grappling
20 Rushdown
25 Kombos
10 Reversal
0 Zoning
0 Runaway

I literally opened an account just to say THANKS! This Baraka a.i setting helped me get thru this whole tower. Thanks! Flawless

Nice advise but which special moves you use for Baraka?

To get through the Cassie and Jacqui and friends do not use the AI. I picked Scorpion and stay far away. Use the consumables. I used, Hydro wave, Meat head and Mileena Sai. They have extremely short cooldowns and the Hydro wave knocks them over. Just block and use each consumable one at a time. The Hydro wave is the best one since it knocks down, buying you time. If you have Takeda Kunai you can also use it against them instead of Mileena Sai. Any Fire based consumable is deadly so use them, but the main one is Hydro wave since it is a largely unavoidable and knocks down. If you have Zaterra charms you can use that to cheese any fight with Hydro Wave since the wave will knock down and the acid with drain their health.

Just made it. That was hard one. Just don't jump or duck. Don't use any low or jumping attack. Equip some tossing konsumable like Takeda's kunai or onaga's meteor and keep bashing.

Glad to see I’m not the only one that’s having problems. Took me many tries but eventually passed it with sub zero. Used shinnoks amulet to make my attacks unblockable and the other konsumable that strengthens your punches I think. Now I’m stuck on level 8.

Hey players,

For the flawless victory challenge against Sub-Zero and scorpion, just don't duck or do any moves, or kombos, that have you ducking in any way. Thanks opinions base attacks won't hurt you just counter and kombo consistently and you'll get past it easy. Don't even fear that rocket, it goes for your offensive/defensive meters not your health. Hit it in 3 tries. Any other questions with any levels hit me up. I got you.

Second note, got the Cassie jaqui tier challenges in the gauntlet, you're going to want to use the temporary armor and, 25% health konsumables and just be aggressive with kombos and attacks. Liu kang works great with his down, back, O custom move and the flying kick enhanced. Again any questions mk11 related, holla at me

Use Jacqui Briggs and some konsumablea that keep them away. Spam b, f, 2. Yes. Poison immunity is very useful too but I made without as you just spam special moves
