Secret Achievements/Trophies:

Best…Alternate…Ever! (10G) – Unlock Mileena’s 3rd alternate costume. — Beat the Challenge Tower to #300. Video and description courtesy of .

If you have good timing and range, you can beat it. The AI can’t handle cross-over jumps.

  • 1) Goro – You should focus on building your meter with Goro. He taunts a lot so you get a lot of free chances to do damage. Jump to avoid the Ground Pound he does and then counter.
  • 2) Kintaro – Use your X-ray on Kintaro, but watch out because Kintaro has crazy air grabs, and fireballs that can mess you up. If he jumps up out of the screen, jump diagonally away.
  • 3) Mileena – She has some crazy fast attacks; you’ll want to block and be aware of her quickness and try to find openings. Try to use X-ray on her and finish her quickly.
  • 4) Shao Kahn – If you stay just out of range of this guy, you can beat him. As you can see, I whiff a lot with trying to use the spear and instead punch nothing but air. But my timing was on point, and I was practicing jumping circles around him.
