How to Solve Mortal Kombat 1 Hug it Out Klue

To solve the Hug it Out Klue in Mortal Kombat 1, or MK1, the first step is to set Sareena as your Kameo partner. Why? Because you want her Brutality. Specifically, the one called To a Crisp. Near the end of the fight, the move that entirely depletes the opponent’s health bar needs to be Sareena’s throw, which you execute by hitting Forward + L1/LB, or Forward + X and A / Square and X. As soon as the throw animation begins, start mashing the Down button. Technically, you only need to press it twice, but just in case. I find mashing at least makes me feel like the move will come out more consistently.

And, yeah, that’s how you solve the Hug it Out Klue in MK1, or Mortal Kombat 1. It might take you a couple of tried before you get it down pat, but you’ll get it eventually. In the grand scheme of things, fixing it so the throw is the final blow is relatively easy. By the way, the Hug it Out tile is in the Living Forest section, and the tile itself is called Static Shock, because electricity does a whole bunch of damage due to the modifier. Good luck. Your reward for pulling it off will be not one, but two skins, one common consumable, and a handful of credits. Here are the full details:

  • Current Queen Mileena Skin
  • War Powers Reiko Skin
  • Precision Scope Common Konsumable
  • 250 Seasonal Kredits
