How to Play Reptile in Mortal Kombat 1 – Guide & Tips
As you may have noticed, Reptile’s main combos are mostly in the air, so you need to focus on that. You should also train one of the main character’s abilities, invisibility, which, along with other techniques, can guarantee you a good outcome in battle. Learn the Reptile’s Awakening attacks, such as in BF2 and BF4, as they are the main component of most combos. We recommend that you learn the skills and combos on the training ground against the bot so that you can go into battle against online opponents with the attacks you have already learned.
