Strategy for Shao Kahn.
04/19/2011 03:39 PM EDT
So decided to go through Expert with my main(Mileena, mentioning her in case someone suggests why I may have had the problems I did) and tore through it until I got to the 7th battle, Baraka. Maybe it's a match up problem, maybe it was the AI's stupid reflexes depending on your button input, but I lost like 4 times.

Fine, got to Shang Tsung and almost perfected him, same story for Goro. Get to Shao Kahn and lose about 8 times. I tried being defensive, offensive, a balanced attack, and the best way to tackle him, at least with Mileena, is defensively, which can be hard since she's a pressure character. What do I do to not lose that many times?

Are there certain attacks that after you block them , you should perform pop ups for? Xray over using the bars independently? Just for this fight, really...

Nvm all you need to do is block or jump over him and combo away. Somewhat like goro/kintaro except you may get punished by his upward rush.

Figure out a lengthy juggle with your char = profit regardless of difficulty.

This is how I beat him in story mode:

These are the tools you need:
-Jump in punch then Uppercut combo
-Blocking
-Standard Lightning
-Enhanced Lightning

What you want to do is repeat this pattern:

1.Stand just outside sweep distance.
2. Tap Block, if he doesnt do a move, jump in combo. If he does a move, block it and jump over him and then do the combo.
3. After your combo connects, throw a meaty lightning. When Kahn gets up he will either eat it, or block it and build your meter.
MEATY-A PROJECTILE DELIVERED AS THE OPPONENT ATTEMPTS TO GET UP
4. When your meter is high enough, use an enhanced Lightning for extra damage.
5. Repeat

Additional Notes:
DO NOT GET HIT BY HIS GODDAMN SLEDGEHAMMER!
The Combo hits twice, and thus breaks his armor frame.
If you want to get fancy, you can add teleporting behind him when he throws the hammer and hitting a combo.


Thats all that you need to do, but it is easier said than done.
