Mortal Kombat 1: Unlock all custom skins

To unlock custom skins, you will have to play Mortal Kombat 1. Yeah, that’s right. Let me explain. Each unlockable, be it custom skins, color palettes, costumes, Brutalities, and even Fatalities will be unlocked by you playing through the different modes the game has to offer. If you are wondering what you can do to unlock them, then go ahead and follow this list:

  • Play the Kampaign. After each successful fight, you will unlock a specific set of gear that belongs to your character, enemy, or something random.
  • Play Invasions and Towers. You will earn even more unique rewards and cosmetics for playing each of these game modes and landing victories.
  • Level your character up. If you choose to play a specific character during Invasions or Towers, you will level up their mastery level. Each level unlocks a specific cosmetic item, including skins.
  • Purchase skins with Dragon Krystals. If you are new to the game, then you will notice you’ll need to spend Dragon Krystals to get the premium and unique character skins in Mortal Kombat 1. You can only get Dragon Krystals by spending real money, so you get the point.
  • Spend Koins in the Shrine. Koins are one of the three currencies available in MK1. Spend 1000 Koins in the Shrine to unlock items. Yes, RNG is here to stay.
