How to Beat TITAN SHAO KAHN in Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions

Season 2 of MK1 Invasions is upon us and based on the new Blood Moon theme. We also have a new Titan battle like when we fought Baraka. Only this time, it is Titan Shao Kahn or The Konqueror.

Honestly, he is not as difficult to beat as Baraka but is one of the toughest boss fights yet. A lot of users are struggling with the match, especially since Shao Kahn does an insane amount of damage.

So if you are one of them, I will help you beat the boss within 2 minutes.  You don’t need any fancy gear, no talisman nothing. There is a simple trick that will help you end the fight in no time and I am about to tell you.

How to Beat TITAN SHAO KAHN in Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions

I am not a huge fan of the Invasions mode but I love the skin that they give us (Raider of the Farkon Steppes) after beating The Konqueror.

Like every Boss fight, this one too has 4 stages. However, there is no survival phase so that is kind of a relief. Instead, you fight him head-on all the time.

Here are some of the tips that you might find useful:

Stage 1:

General Shao armors through most of your moves. However, if you start a combo from a jump attack it works most of the time. If you have played Invasions earlier, I would recommend adding the majority of your points to attack and health stats. This would make you tanky as Shao Kahn hits you like a truck.

Stage 2:

Don’t use your meter. Save them up for breaking combos when Shao catches you. A very useful way to deal with his attacks will be to jump right behind him. Yes, Shao Kahn gets stuck in the animation and you can literally uppercut 2-3 times and deal a lot of damage to him.

Uppercuts are super overpowered when your attack rating is high. So don’t be shy about throwing them out once in a while. Also, jump kicks are really effective, especially for this battle. You can jump-kick Shao, land behind him, and follow it up with a combo string or an uppercut.

Stage 3:

Titan Shao starts the round by smashing the ground several times with his Axe. If you get the timing right, you can easily jump-kick him while he hits the ground. He will be armoring your attack so he won’t get knocked down. This will work in your favor as you can almost take half of his health away. However, if you get the timing wrong and start getting hit by his ground smash, block low once and then start jump-kicking Shao again.

Stage 4:

This will be the last phase of the boss fight. General Shao will do a rising knee and smash the ground with the axe making the area unstable. If you stand on that, you will lose health really fast so avoid it at all costs. Just jump behind Shao while he is stuck in his animation and keep attacking him from behind. Even after he lands you can deliver two uppercuts on him.

Don’t keep relentlessly attacking him. If he catches you, you are as good as dead. Keep your distance, wait for the animation to trigger, jump behind him, and start attacking. Overall he is not that hard to beat and I am sure after reading this guide, the fight will become even easier.
