Shao Kahn is harder in Mortal Kombat 9 than ever before. I fought and defeated him using Liu Kang using fireballs of course and staying away from him. But with Raiden he is even harder to defeat since it’s like playing on Expert difficulty on Ladder Match mode.
I have tried all I can, fireballs teleports etc and I can only take away half his blood (even with the X-Ray) before he does his hard-to-dodge moves.
Can anyone share how they defeated him?
Play lame; Keep your distance, teleport when he throws his hammer (block or jump over his arrows) and then do the Electric Fly (back -> toward -> Front Kick, the attack that resembles Superman flying and pushing the enemy). When he decides it’s a good idea to stop attacking to taunt you, land a combo (or a Electric Fly if you don’t feel confident enough to combo him). If he approaches you, keep going back until it’s not possible to do it anymore, then jump and use the Electric Fly on the air to get to the other side of the stage safely.
If you can avoid the majority of his attacks, he will go down eventually, but it is quite hard.
