NetherRealm has issued a big update to Mortal Kombat 11 that makes sweeping changes to all characters.
The headline for many will be a nerf to Scorpion’s Hell Port and air Hell Port, considered by many to be one of the game’s most annoying moves. This teleport sees Scorpion appear behind his opponent for a strike that can lead to a high damage combo if it’s not blocked. It’s such a fast move it’s hard to react to, so to combat it you have to predict it, which isn’t always possible.
Scorpion’s teleport is so maligned it’s become something of a running joke among those who soldier through the Kombat League, Mortal Kombat 11’s seasonal ranked mode. Scorpion is certainly one of the most popular characters in the game, and at most ranks you run up against him often. And the Hell Port and air Hell Port spam is real.
