In this guide, we’ll show you the best ways to earn easy koins in Mortal Kombat X.

How To Earn Koins

Enter The Krypt:
The best way to earn koins is by exploring the Krypt. Unlocking gates that lead to new areas often rewards you with lots of cash. For instance, opening the door with the gems in Spider Gem Hold gives you 8000 koins.

Koin Chests:
Certain chests in the Krypt contain decent amounts of cash. The ones marked as “timed” will disappear and reappear depending on the time. Here’s a list of their locations:

Krypt Gateway (0, 1)None4000 Koins
Icy Hollow (1, 17)150 (timed)2000 Koins
Hollow Grounds (-5, 21)200 (timed)2000 Koins
Kotal’s Kavern (21, 35)2502000 Koins
Shadow Spider Cave (7, 10)7542000 Koins
Lost Mausoleum (5, -1)8602000 Koins
Shao Khan’s Tomb (2, 8)9802000 Koins
Kahn’s Stronghold (1, 14)11404000 Koins
Frozen Graves (-2, 7)12004000 Koins
Each match played will net you a bit of cash. Combos and finishers influence the total, so the better you fight, the more you’ll earn. For reference, we took 2000-2500 Koins on average from a won fight ended with a fatality. It’s possible that rare or more complicated finishers bring more money to the winner.

Animals in the Krypt:
Sometimes, animals will randomly jump at you while you roam the Krypt. If you press the required button quickly enough, your character will defend yourself and you’ll earn a handful of koins (200-300).

    Ive killed spiders that gave me up to 500 Koins. Also, I cant proceed any further past the 4 levers since Im one of those who cant interact with them anymore. Hope a patch is coming soon cause I really like what they did with the krypt in this game.

      I’m not sure if you’ve tried this yet, but if you pull all the levels they will reset. Sorry if that’s not your problem and it’s truly bugged 🙁
