Geras can add or subtract 30 seconds from the clock for timer scam shenanigans — UltraDavid breaks down Mortal Kombat 11's newest combatant

Mortal Kombat 11's reveal event showed us the return of many fan favorites like Baraka and Skarlet to the roster. Although Kronika appears to be playing a major role in the story, the only confirmed newcomer so far is Geras.

Geras is Mortal Kombat 11's grappler archetype. In other words, this character has UltraDavid's attention as he tends to prefer playing grappler characters in fighting games.

Recently, UltraDavid uploaded a breakdown of Geras on the UltraChen YouTube channel. Thanks to the custom variation system, Geras players will be able to choose abilities like Quick Sand, Gauntlet of the Ages, Bed of Spikes, Shifting Sands, Lost Time and Spare Time, Sand Simulacrum, Reawakened, Reverse Time, Stepping it Back, and Sand Pillar.

Needless to say, the theme behind Geras appears to revolve around time manipulation. For example, Geras can add 30 seconds to the clock with Spare time and remove 30 seconds with Lost Time. Note that the time cannot go below 9 seconds with Lost Time.

According to UltraDavid, Geras is the type of fighter that wants to be up close against opponents. He is not considered to be a footsies monster. While he might have some difficulty against zoners, he does have access to a few tools to make it more challenging to keep him out.

Here's a quick look at Geras' timer scam abilities. Once again, this is thanks to the custom variation system.
