Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate has one of the largest rosters in the history of the franchise. Although the underlying mechanics for all are the same, each has a unique kit that will shape how they play at a competitive level. With that in mind, it can be daunting to get your feet wet for the first time and take on the challenge of learning how to play a character on a level beyond just casually facing off your friends. Competitive players have practiced and internalized these characteristics to compete against each other on the grand stages.
For this reason, at DashFight, we wanted to get together with the best players in the Mortal Kombat scene to give you all the tools you need to get started with the God of Wind Fujin by the excellent MTL Leon. You can see the full video guide below. If you need to revisit any part of the guide, you can also come back here to follow the text guide.
Fujin's Best Buttons
The Best Buttons are the key moves for the character. Either as players or opponents, you are likely to want to use or see these in play since they offer the best neutral, anti-air, and pressure value.
- 1 - Fast and reliable, can double as anti-air if needed.
- B1 - Great reach for a Mid.
- B4 - A Low poke with excellent hit advantage.
- 2 - High attack and safe on block.
- 4 - This is your go-to anti-air as it can also convert into other moves easily.
- D4 -A quick low poke with good range.
- D3 - Another low poke with good range and safer, though it can be punished.
- F3 - Slow and unsafe, but good damage and good push on block.
- B2 - A great way to disrupt your opponent.
Fujin's Best Variations
Since players can now use their custom Variations in tournament settings, there is no excuse not to learn what goes well together. So here is MTLeon's Fujin variation specials ranking:
- Sky Wakka (DU)
- Airsenal (DB2)
- Wind Push (BF1)
Gone are the days of smashing buttons and spamming that one combo we learned five years ago. Instead, if you want to compete or impress your mates, you have to go into each match with a Gameplan to carry through to victory. Here are your key principles:
- Mobility is Key. Sky Wakka and Arisenal will give you the tools necessary to control much of the screen at your own pace.
- You will rely on combos far more than you would initially expect. Try to practice them as much as you can.
- At a close or very long distance, you will likely struggle, there is a sweet spot somewhere in the middle that will give you the advantage.
Fujin's Best Strings
No one wins on the back of single punches. Having a memorized list of the Best Strings you can use and change throughout the match will vastly improve your chances of coming out ahead.
- 1, 1, U4
- 1, 2, 4, 3, 4
- B1, 1, 2, 1, 2
- B2, 1, 3
- 4, 2, 3
- F4, 3
