    Scorpion's Attacks

    This is the box to look for!  

    Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe utilizes four attack buttons, identified in the game (and also in this guide) as Attacks 1, 2, 3, and 4. The following table lists which button corresponds to each attack on both the Xbox 360 console and the Playstation 3 console. The button combinations for the Xbox will be listed first and the PS3 button combinations second below.

    • Attack 1 -- X or square
    • Attack 2 -- Y or triangle
    • Attack 3 -- A or X
    • Attack 4 -- B or circle
    • Block -- RT or R2
    • Throw -- LB or L1
    • Klose Kombat -- RB or R1
    • Rage -- LT + RT or L2 + R2

    Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe has basic combat attacks that you can read about in my article at Kombat Basics and Additional Kombat Information.

    Scorpion is the kind of character some girls like, very aggressive and best when played this way, but then he's a demon and likes to keep everybody guessing about his next move. Use Spear to set up his big combos and keep opponents on the defensive with Hellfire and Fiery Teleport. Blown Away and Blasted Wind are high-powered combos, and you can combo nicely into a Spear grab from Silver Fury to set up for one of these two big damage attacks.
