Start your journey of the second season of Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions with this detailed guide on the Fire Temple Mesa

Mortal Kombat 1 Invasion mode looks to provide players with season content in an interesting new format for the franchise. Unlike the franchise's previous entry called Krypt, Mortal Kombat 1’s single-player focused content presents a table-top-like game for players to explore, find secrets, and eventually unlock more cosmetics through its Seasonal Koins system and chests.

Throughout these guides, we will be exploring the details of Invasions, how to complete them, tips and tricks, and what rewards you can expect in the season of the Blood Moon.

All Mortal Kombat 1 Invasion Season 2 "Blood Moon" Mesas:

The Story

The second season of Mortal Kombat 1 invasions, the season of the Blood Moon, sees a Vaeternus that managed to conquer Outworld and beyond, eventually reaching over all the realms. As Nitara and the rest of the vampires never found balance, they eventually reached across timelines, into Liu Kang's, to exert their will unto his. They even went as far as converting many heroes into vampires.

Now is up to you to dismantle their conquest, and travel through the mesas to reach the Rampart, and the home of the ravenous Vaeternus Nitara to finally rid Liu Kang's timeline of their presence.

Fire Temple

The start of this second season of invasion is at the end of the last one. The Fire Temple has been cleansed once before, so let's get to it. Compared to last season, this time around you will face a wide range of opponents in each mesa. As this is the first mesa of the season you will not have access to the Wu Shi Academy to power level your way to the top, so be mindful of the fights.

That said, super armor has now been moved to only mini and mesa bosses, so it should be a much more speedy path. The Fire Temple is also the smallest of all the mesas this season.

As you start out, you will want to path your way down the temple into the port at the bottom. Near the start you will see your first Bloody Fangs gate. These gates, like the Netherstone ones in the first season, require you to beat the Invasion season boss first to unlock, behind them there are a few more mini-boss-like fights and rewards to match.

In this area, you will also come across the first of the few chest rewards; some of them will require you to purchase keys from the shop and to complete their Klues. You can check the Klues for this specific mesa in the nodes table or see all the klues for all the Mesas here.

Not all chests will contain skin rewards, some may just be palettes, relics, or other items. Keep in mind as well that depending on the skins you own, you may receive other rewards.

As you make your way through the temple, remember that you can check if you are missing on nodes by looking at the path's color. Uncleared paths are marked in green, cleared ones in light blue and paths you can’t move into in red. You can also follow the green arrow for directions as to the quickest route to the end of the mesa.

At some point you might be ambushed as well. In season 2 this is much rarer than before, but it also still worth doing, as ambushes generally reward you with permanent character buffs. If you want to be ready for these fights, why not check out one of our pro-player guides? As we cover all the new Mortal Kombat 1 content we have a guide out already for Omni-man, who you can play as in Invasions for that extra flair.

After The Fire Temple

Once you defeat the final boss of the Mesa, Raiden, you will unlock the Sun Do Festival. In contrast to last season, completing the first mesa will not grant you access to the Gateway Portal or Wu Shi Academy, you will need to complete the next mesa as well.
