The best part of Mortal Kombat 1 is being able to see what new and interesting animations NetherRealm has created. From Fatalities to Brutalities, the amount of gore and brain-splitting actions in the game are numerous. Taking a look at the latter, Brutalities have always been a unique way of adding more mix-ups to the formula.

However, unlike Fatalities, Brutalities don’t have a dedicated training area, leaving many fans struggling to try out newly unlocked ones. Let’s enter the arena and figure out how to practice Brutalities in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1).

Since there’s no training system put in place for practicing Brutalities in MK1, players have had to get creative. Before entering a match, players will want to head to the settings and change the amount of rounds to win a fight to 1 round. After doing so, head into ‘Versus‘, select ‘Local’, and choose the character you want to test. You can choose any enemy character, but make sure to set their difficulty to ‘Very Easy’.

From there, simply start the match and start wailing on the innocent very easy enemy CPU. Once you get the enemy within a one-shot kill, you can set yourself up to perform the Brutality. If you happen to make a mistake and kill your opponent, you can easily pause the game and restart the match. Doing it this way with one round and with the CPU opponent set on a very easy skill level will help you save time when attempting these finishers. Let’s just hope there are no issues on NetherRealm’s end preventing players from performing certain button inputs.
