Explore the night time version of the Tarkatan camp in Season 2 of Mortal Kombat 1 invasions to unlock the final mesa of the season
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 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.
The Tarkatan Colony
Before you travel through the winding valleys of the Tarkatan Colony, you will need to complete the mesa prior: Shang Tsung's Laboratory.
This time around, you descend into the colony during night time, with a heavy fog flooding the encampment. Unlike last time, there are not that many looping paths, so you should feel free to travel through it quickly.
Tarkatan Colony Nodes
You can check if you are missing on nodes by looking at the path's color. Uncleared paths are marked in green, cleared ones are in light blue, and paths you can’t move into are in red. You can also follow the green arrow for directions as to the quickest route to the end of the mesa.
As you make your way past the area, you are bound to come across three different Klue nodes. Its worth noting that for one of them: "Heavy Hitter" you will need to have leveled up your Motaro Kameo up to level 2 to unlock his brutality and make use of it during the encounter.
For the others one, in "Fire It Up" you want to use Jax's fatality, and for "Bad Timing" you want to use Reptile's. If you want to check out all the Klues in this second invasion season, we have a helpful guide here.
Tarkatan Colony Bloody Fangs Nodes
After the mid-mesa miniboss, you will go through this mesa's chest portal, which transports you to a small off-mesa section for extra rewards. Most will be talismans, relics, and consumables, but you may also get a skin drop or two. Here is the full list of skins you can earn from the Tarakatan Colony, though keep in mind that if you already own them, you may get a palette version or a different one instead.

After The Tarkatan Colony
With vampiric Sindel defeated, you are not ready to face the last mesa of the season, the Rampart. By this time you should be a few levels higher than most opponents in the nodes, but if you feel you are struggling, then we can recommend you visit the shop on the Wu Shi Academy for some leveling-up items, or the shop and forge on the Gateway Portal to take a couple of good talisman with you into the fights ahead.
