Mortal Kombat 11: Basic Tutorial for Playing Geras



Geras in MK11 is very flexible, ensuring fast attacks and serious damage. Furthermore, our Guide will also detail his entire move, BnB combos, Brutalities, and Fatalities. So, no need to worry anymore, let’s learn how to play, starting from his strong point.

Mortal Kombat 11 Geras


When we talk about playing and his strengths, you might want to rely on his grappling technique and use them to deal with some serious damage.

Geras in MKXI is a very offensive character and likes to attack opponents. You should do your best whenever you get the chance.

Some of the great abilities he has been hitting opponents with a sledgehammer and dragging the player into quicksand where they’re stuck, giving him plenty of time to set up devastating combos.


When it comes to his weakness in MKXI, one thing he lacks is his ability to move in the air in front of his opponent. Furthermore, Geras is not a beginner-friendly character.

Hence, if you’re just starting out, you’ll probably need to spend some time before getting to grips with him.

Furthermore, his abilities like Quicksand and Hammer are powerful but can be dodged by smart players. But then again, it is the truth for almost every character in the game.

How to Play Geras

As mentioned earlier, Geras has some effective trap setups that he can use to pressure the opponent. Alternatively, you can also use them to distract your opponent and make him / her off guard.

He is an attacker and likes to charge his opponents. His angle combination potential is not surprising and he can do some ridiculous damage if he tries to squeeze the opponent’s corner… this is what you need to aim for.

Fatality 1: Phasing Through Time

The first Fatality in Mortal Kombat 11, Phasing Through Time, was revealed when the character was first announced. It’s simple but effective enough to destroy his enemies. It also seems to be a Long-Range Death. We will learn more about the button combination of this move closer to the game release.

Phasing Through Time begins with Geras teleported behind his enemy, punching them in the back hard enough to break his chest. Next, he teleported in front of them to perform a barbaric blow, seemingly causing them to break their necks with spilled blood. Eventually, he turned back to hit the back of his head with an open palm, causing the skull to burst and the brain to fly out.

Fatality 2: Peeling Back


The second Fatality of Geras is called Peeling Back and it’s a bit awful… However, that’s only on par with the course. You activate Fatality at a close distance and with the following inputs: Down, Forward, Back, Punch Forward (Square on PS4, X on Xbox One, Y on Switch).

This fatality is very similar to one of his special attacks. He prepared everything by putting up a large sand wall to stab his prey. Then he did it, and eventually watched by opening the opposing player like the bathroom door.
