The Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Rambo gameplay trailer is here. NetherRealm Studios released the showcase this morning giving us a look at what the 80s action movie star can do in battle.

In this new trailer, we see John Rambo take on a handful of classic Mortal Kombat combatants, as well as a quick glimpse at the dream match up of Rambo vs. Terminator. Many of his weapons and techniques are shown off here, including his bow and arrow, knife attacks, and traps.

Before his gameplay was unveiled, fans in the Mortal Kombat community feared that Rambo would be just another zoning / gun-using character. From the trailer, we see this is not the case.

Primarily, Rambo utilizes his bow and arrows and knife in combat. These two weapons appear to be the cornerstones of the character, with other variations bringing in several other familiar tools.

Rambo has the ability to travel under incoming projectiles by way of his slide attack — which has the ability to trigger a Krushing Blow. Like any skilled hunter, Rambo can also crawl across the screen in the prone to grab the opponent's ankle and slice it with his knife, effectively ducking under projectiles.

We do see a point in the trailer where Rambo uses guns, pulling two large machine guns out of the ground and spraying the opponent with bullets. This attack looks to be a special move and can be amplified.

Rambo has a variety of different traps and explosives in his arsenal as well. We see logs swinging across the stage that clobber the opponent, Bouncing Betty mines that can be triggered by walking over them, and even ropes that can string the opponent up in the air.

The first Fatality we are treated to for Rambo is one that starts with a powerful knife throw to the opponent's chest. They stumble back and trigger a spike trap that impales them, and as they beg for mercy Rambo appears behind them and rips their throat out.

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is due out on November 17. It will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia, and on that day fans will be able to play as the new DLC characters: Rambo, Mileena, and Rain.
