How to Fix Brutalities Not Working in Mortal Kombat 1

To fix brutalities not working in Mortal Kombat 1, you need to open the advanced view of the brutality and read the notes.

In most cases, the brutality cannot be performed because your inputs are wrong.

Here’s how to open the advanced view of a brutality:

  1. Open the moves list and select “Finishers”.
  2. Navigate to the brutality that you want to perform under “Brutalities”.
  3. Switch to “Advanced View” of the brutality (press square for PS5).
  4. Read the notes in the advanced view for additional information on how to perform the brutality correctly.

Note #1: Certain brutalities of certain characters are not working/bugged in MK1 and WB Games are currently investigating it (source: mortalkombat1.bugs.wbgames.com/bug/MK1-107).

Note #2: If you can’t perform a character’s brutality no matter how many times you try, it might be bugged and you need to wait for an MK1 update that fixes it.
