You’ll need quick fingers for this one.
Another one of Mortal Kombat 11’s many secrets has been uncovered just over a year since the game launched. Eagle-eyed players recently spotted a seemingly random meteor flying across the background in the Towers of Time mode’s menu screen. These players quickly realized that the meteor always shows up at ten minutes past the hour, on every even hour. However, the secret to interacting with it took much longer to solve.
Thankfully, NetherRealm boss Ed Boon gave a significant helping hand this week by posting a teaser on Twitter.
This opened the door for TheThiny, a modder from the Mortal Kombat community, to crack the code by creating a mod that repeatedly spawns the meteor to make things easier.
The code is: Left, Up, Left, Right, Left, Up, Up.
You have to input this code as you see the meteor on the screen, so be quick. If the meteor passes before you’re finished, you will have to wait another hour to try again. TheThiny has provided a full walkthrough of the process on their YouTube channel.
The code itself is a nod to the original “Blood Kode” from the Sega Genesis version of Mortal Kombat. If you translate it as Left = A, Up = B, and Right = C, you end up with ABACABB, which is the exact original code from the 1992 classic. This code is also a nod to the 1981 Genesis album of the same name.
Once the tower is unlocked, you have to start it then and there, as you only have one hour to play through it. So if you plan on doing this, make sure you’ve carved out some free time beforehand. You’ll need the following to access the tower:
- 250,000 Koins
- 500 Hearts
- 2500 Souls
The tower is on the maximum difficulty setting, so you may need some additional consumables to help you complete it. If you lose, you are able to replay the tower, but only if you don’t quit out. If you quit, the tower will disappear and you will need to go through the entire process again, including paying the entry fee. Once finished, the tower will reward you with a random Kombat League skin, along with additional skins and augments for the character you were playing as.
If you are yet to pick up Mortal Kombat 11, now is a pretty great time to do it. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Edition launched just last week and includes all of the DLC characters and story content in one handy bundle.
