As Mortal Kombat 1 players make their way through Season 2 of Invasions Mode, they’ll start to run into Locked Gates. Every Mesa has them, though players won’t be able to open them right away. Before they can start to unlock them, they’ll need to find Bloody Fangs. However, this Legendary key item cannot be found in shops or chests and the game provides no hints, leaving many players wondering how to open Locked Gates in Invasions.
Given the game’s aggressive monetization, players would be forgiven for thinking that these were some kind of premium item designed to tempt players into opening up their wallets for expensive cosmetic items or a way to skip some of the tiresome Invasions Mode grind. However, much like the Nether Stone key item in Season 1 of Invasions, players can get their hands on Bloody Fangs through main story progress alone.
How to Get Bloody Fangs in Mortal Kombat 1
Players will get Bloody Fangs as a reward for completing Season 2 of Invasions. They’ll get the key item right after the fight with Nitara, along with 1,025 Seasonal Kredits and Nitara’s Twilight skin, Dangerous Bite palette, and Night Flier gear. The former will need to be used relatively quickly, as Seasonal Kredits will expire once the Season of the Blood Moon comes to an end. Thankfully, there are plenty of great items available in the Seasonal Store at the moment, so players shouldn’t have too much trouble finding something to spend their Seasonal Kredits on.
What’s Behind the Blood Gate in Invasions?
After getting hold of their Bloody Fangs, players should return to each Mesa and unlock every Bloody Gate that they come across. Behind these gates, they’ll find chests containing new skins and palettes, Invasions Mode Klues, and several more challenging fights. The latter can be a great way to level up kombatants and kameo fighters. However, most players will probably find it much faster to respec their stats to max out their Attack and then grind one of the Endurance nodes in the Fire Temple Mesa.
