Fatalities are the finishing move you can initiate once your enemy’s health bar is almost depleted. They offer a very satisfying and gory end to a fight, precisely what Mortal Kombat is about.

When choosing your Kombatant in invasion mode, you will have an already unlocked fatality by default. This means the first fatality of every character, including Scorpion, will be available for you to try out.

However, to perform Scorpion’s second fatality in Mortal Kombat 1, you must reach Mastery Level 14. So, take your time and progress in the game.

Important Tips:

  • To earn XP for leveling up, you can play other game modes and earn XP by completing objectives. This will significantly help you in boosting your Mastery Level.
  • On the other hand, you can still perform Scorpion Second Fatality in Mortal Kombat 1 before you have unlocked it. However, you will not be shown the button combination.

Either you have unlocked the fatality by leveling up or don’t want to grind for that XP; the button combination for the move will be the same. So, if you still haven’t unlocked it, you might want to get a sticky note to write the combination.

The ‘ Finish Him ‘ prompt will appear once the enemy’s health bar has depleted. Now, make your way closer to the dying opponent, and press the following button combination:

  1. Close-Range
  2. Back
  3. Forward
  4. Back
  5. Back Punch

Moreover, it is essential to note that back punch will be performed differently on different consoles.

  • On PlayStation, Press Triangle.
  • On Xbox, Press Y.
  • On Switch, Press X.
  • On the Keyboard, Press I.

Once you have pressed the correct combination, three clones of Scorpion will appear. Initially, the first clone will stab the enemy with a Sword, while the second clone pierces through the skull with an Axe. Finally, the third clone puts the enemy on Flames.

After that, the real Scorpion will pull the injured enemy with his iconic weapon and smash his chest with a powerful kick. Furthermore, this kick will disassociate his skeleton from the flesh, finishing the fatality.

My Thoughts

I honestly am a big fan of Mortal Kombat Fatalities and love how they have evolved over the last couple of games. Scorpion’s second Fatality is definitely amongst my top 5 Fatality cinematics. Moreover, if you’ve played previous Mortal Kombat games, you know that you can perform the locked fatality before unlocking it.

Following this guide and keeping the tips in mind, you will see a very satisfying Scorpion Fatality. A very explicit and gory fatality makes this a fun one to execute. Check out more articles:
