Mortal Kombat 11 brings back some of the fan-favorite characters. After all, it’s a memory of the timeline of the entire series. But some characters are also forced to make players groan instead of cheering. One such fighter is Noob Saibot – and he’s back with a bunch of “troll-y” tricks to make his opponents angry. However, if you are a lover of special moves, you are bound to love him as much as you hate him.
Noob Saibot Strengths & Weaknesses
Every character in Mortal Kombat 11 has multiple downloads. With a combination of loot, additional items, skins, and more, you can tailor the look of your fighter just the way you want it. And there are some really annoying combinations – though the game does limit the number of possibilities you can bring into battle. Some characters are also more flexible than others, but all warriors, in general, have their own basic strengths and weaknesses.
Noob Saibot, according to Netherrealm, is a more distinctive moving character than most of its peers. And those particular movements almost revolve around shadow copies. These fighters act like bullets. The main difference is their versatility: shadow clones can go low, high, follow angles, and teleport. That makes them unpredictable and very good at “trolling” enemies, by hitting them when it seems they should be safe. That momentum is greatly increased when he performs 10 clone attacks, which will add a “Crush” bonus to his next clone move.
Noob is also particularly focused on low-profile attacks. That’s great for forcing the enemy to bow down and really think about where they’re blocking – something many low-level players won’t get used to.
The special move of Noob Saibot dominance comes at the cost of “normal” attacks. He has one of the most limited casual sets of moves in Mortal Kombat 11, according to the developers. That makes it difficult for him to come close to and mingle with other boxers – he needs to maintain distance to keep his advantage.
