The character roster in Mortal Kombat 11 is great. You can play different archetypes, messing with fun fighting mechanics. And you have an absolutely impressive variety of backgrounds to choose from — from a “usual” girl who knows kickboxing to a god-like creature from another universe.
Jacqui Briggs is precisely that girl. Whenever you are not in the mood to smash everyone with paranormal abilities (like Cetrion does) or use the bloody violence of such guys as Joker, consider the martial art skills and technological devices of Jacqui (because, why not?)
This girl is one of the top fighters in Mortal Kombat 11 (yep, you can see her in the S Tier of DashFight’s MK11 tier list). And… Ok, let’s skip that part about the dedicated practice with a character that allows you to achieve many victories. That’s obvious, and we are here not to explain long (effective but long) ways of learning a fighting game character but to highlight nice shortcuts. Who’s ready for a fantastic video guide by LawKorridor, who explains how to play Jacqui Briggs: her best variation, gameplan, strings, and combos?

Jacqui Briggs’ Gameplan
This character is good at a range (B2; F1) and lands nice crashing attacks (F3; 1, 1). Jacqui has an insane jump and a lot of gimmicks. Also, she can change the pace to a slow one using her Grenade Launcher. Thanks to her pressure, Jacqui can play a great structural game.
LawKorridor calls Jacqui Briggs a rushdown monster who can be dangerous everywhere on the screen.
LawKorridor recommends utilizing Jacqui’s jump and leap, praising their range. Her Grenade Launcher opens possibilities for mind games. Normal attacks can be canceled into Bionic Bounce.
