Here's how to very quickly snag three Shao Kahn skins and a new spear right now in Mortal Kombat 11

Don't sleep on this Tower of Time

The quest to unlock gear for characters in Mortal Kombat 11 is an ongoing process that takes a lot of time and effort. Naturally, it's always a treat when any potential ways to streamline gear unlocks pop up, and one of those opportunities is upon us today.

If you're a Shao Kahn fan, there's a ladder in the Towers of Time that you should absolutely jump into as soon as you can. Completing it won't take very long, and the rewards you'll get include three new skins, a new spear, and more.

The tower is called "Challenge 269" and features a single fight with three opponents — all of them are Shao Kahn. The catch here is you'll have to get through a full life bar of each Shao Kahn in one sitting, and if you lose you start back from the beginning.

It sounds tough, and with the difficulty labeled as "Very Hard" it definitely appears daunting. However, if you're crafty you can clear this very quickly and walk away with some quality goodies.

The first Shao Kahn comes packed with armor that negates all hitstun for a while. In order to beat him, all I did was go for uppercuts (so that I wouldn't commit to combo strings that would inevitably get interrupted) and focus on blocking. Doing so allowed me to clear the first one pretty easily.

As for the other two Kahns, their fights are pretty standard. I mixed up between going in on them and staying back and throwing my hammer (I also played as Shao Kahn), and that seemed to do the trick just fine.

One thing you'll want to do before the match is equip a handful of modifiers to keep you going. Aim for health regeneration modifiers and this tower will be a cake walk for most players.

I was able to clear this tower in about five minutes, and for my troubles I snagged the following:

Golden Empire (skin)
Ruthless Cutthroat (skin)
Zaterran Remnant (skin)
Lance of Bloody Slaughter
200 Hearts

On top of that, winning the match also rewarded me with a new helmet and hammer for Shao Kahn.

This ladder will expire in a little under three days, so if you want some new gear very quickly be sure to act fast!
