How To Unlock All Kameos In Mortal Kombat 1

Who doesn't want to fight with a cybernetic centaur on their team?

Mortal Kombat 1 is finally here and with Liu Kang’s new era comes a brand new system to contend with – Kameos. I loved the Kameo system in Mortal Kombat 1 – calling it out in my review as an ingenious way to keep things fresh and give much more flexibility to players.

But as you’ll also see in my review, a lot of the Kameos come locked with a whole third of them being unavailable when you first boot the game. The game also doesn’t tell you much about what you should do to unlock them either, which might leave players in a bit of a pickle.

The solution is tied to your Profile Level for your account. As you finish fights in Mortal Kombat 1, you’ll gain XP. Levelling up your profile will unlock all kinds of things including coins to spend and customisable parts for your profile. But the most important thing is that it lets you unlock the remaining Kameos.

All you have to do to unlock the remaining Kameos in Mortal Kombat 1 is to level up your profile. They happen every five levels.

Level 5 – Scorpion (Mortal Kombat 1)
Level 10 – Sub Zero (Mortal Kombat 1)
Level 15 – Kung Lao (Mortal Kombat 2)
Level 20 – Shujinko (Mortal Kombat Deception)
Level 25 – Motaro (Mortal Kombat 3)

They’re all some pretty great Kameos with Motaro being my personal favourite. Shujinko is the most unique, though, he enters each match equipped with two of your opponents moves and can use them in lieu of other moves. If you’ve played Mortal Kombat Deception, you probably know why.
