Some of them will be more complicated than others, so you’ll need to practice before you go into battle. Well, let’s find out what combos you can use.

|B2 + J1 + 2||You bounce back, forming an ice clone instead. If the enemy hits it, them will freeze, after which you take out an ice chain mace, which you use to hit your opponent by throwing them in the air, performing combos of hits, and throwing them to the ground with a mace.|

|B2 + J2 + 2 + exDB4 + F1 + 2 + BF3||It’s identical to the previous attack, but at the end, you take out an ice spear, which you use to throw the enemy into the air, then pierce them into the weapon and throw them to the ground.|

How to Play Sub-Zero in MK 1: Guide & Tips
Considering that Sub-Zero hasn’t changed much since the previous parts, the tips will be more basic and well-known. Your main advantage will be freezing your opponent. Luckily, Sub-Zero has enough attacks that you can freeze the enemy, or counter-attack by turning them into an icicle. Freezing will give you a significant advantage in battle, so don’t neglect it.
Another good tip is to use combos in the air. Unlike Havik, Sub-Zero has many more opportunities to attack the enemy in the air and deal significant damage. Most of the combos we’ve described above are based on air attacks, so if you learn how to perform them correctly, you’ll be unbeatable in combat.
