Mortal Kombat 11 brings back a number of fan favorite characters. It’s a celebration of the entire series’ timeline, after all.

If you’re a fan of special moves, though, you’re bound to love him as much as hate him. And we’ve got you covered for a head start. So let’s take a look at our Noob Saibot guide for Mortal Kombat 11.

Noob Saibot Strengths & Weaknesses – Mortal Kombat 11
It’s tough to say exactly what makes Noob Saibot tick in the newest Mortal Kombat. The game isn’t out, after all! But developer Netherrealm Studios did us all a favor by showcasing this character (and many more) in video demos. So we’ve got a basic idea of what to expect. Don’t think we’re resting on our laurels, though! We’ll be sure to update this guide with better strengths, weaknesses, and tips once the game is out. For now, though, let’s take a look at what we know about Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat 11.
Noob Saibot is, according to Netherrealm, more of a special move character than most of his peers. And those special moves nearly all center around shadow clones. These flying fighters function more-or-less like projectiles. The main difference is their versatility: shadow clones can go low, high, at angles, and teleport. That makes them hard to predict and great at “trolling” the enemy, by hitting them when it seems like they should be safe. That momentum gets a big boost when he performs 10 clone attacks, which adds a “Crushing Blow” bonus to the next clone move.
Noob also sounds particularly focused on low attacks. That’s great for forcing foes to crouch and really think about where they’re blocking — something a lot of low-level players won’t be accustomed to.
Noob Saibot’s special move dominance comes at the cost of “normal” attacks. He has one of the most limited normal movesets in Mortal Kombat 11, according to the devs. That makes it harder for him to get up close and mix it up with other fighters — he needs to maintain distance to keep the upper hand. Oh, and his special attack spam is sure to make your friends hate you…
