How to Beat TITAN BARAKA in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1)

Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions has just received some new content. We have a new Mesa, “Pyramid”, and a new boss. Titan Baraka is undoubtedly the toughest boss you could come across in the Invasion mode.

The mode is basically for people who can grind for hours collecting different skins and gears for the characters. If you ask me, fighting against AI is definitely not my thing. However, the new Titan Baraka skin was too tempting so I hopped back in. After several tries, I managed to emerge victorious from what I would say is definitely the toughest boss fight in MK1 Invasions.

If you are struggling against Titan Baraka, here is a guide that will help you defeat him in no time.

How to Beat TITAN BARAKA in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1)

To be honest, you need to have pretty good stats on your character before you can take down this monster. Make sure you assign most of your XP Points to Attack and Health

There will be 5 stages to the boss fight:

Stage 1:

This is the easiest of the stages. You just fight regular Baraka who might use armor moves once in a while. Keep doing high-damage combos to take away as much health as possible.

Stages 2 and 3:

This is where you see Baraka growing huge almost becoming twice your size. He hits like a truck you need to have your guard up all the time.

There are a few animations you need to be aware of.

  • Baraka will spin like a beyblade taking away almost 80% of your health bar. This is a high attack so duck whenever you see him gearing up for a BladeSpin.
  • Baraka will crouch for a while and then blast spikes from all over his body. This is where you need to get away from him. Whenever you see him crouch and charge up for the blast, jump or back dash away as far as possible to reduce the incoming damage. If you stay close, you will be hit by every single spike he hurls at you. So stay away and keep blocking.
  • The last one would be a low and an overhead projectile at the same time. The overhead one has a trajectory that can be avoided if you go close to Baraka. Just stay near him and block low.

Stage two is easier as Baraka does not do combos on you. However, stage three is when monster Baraka hits you with combos. Be sure to stay close to him until he starts charging for the spike blast. Don’t finish your strings. Do 2 hits at a time and perform as many uppercuts as possible.

Stages 4 and 5:

Well, Baraka returns to his normal size but be careful as he is even more dangerous than before. He calls in backup and you would have to dodge a series of arrows and smaller tarkatans who start running towards you.

You need to walk away from the arrows and jump over the Tarkatans. It is not possible to dodge all of them but try to take as little damage as possible.

Stage 5 is going to be the toughest fight as you square off against regular Baraka again. However, this time he plays like a pro and does max damage combos on you. Block literally everything you throw at him. Your best bet would be to make him whiff. Backdash and make him whiff, then punish him for a full combo.

Also, make sure you keep your meter full as you would need to break at least one of his combos. Use a character that has good projectiles so you can keep your distance from Baraka. It is going to be tough but will you need a few tries before you can finish off this boss.

There you go, that’s all you need to know about “How to Beat TITAN BARAKA in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1)”.
