BRUTAL BUDDY is one of the most unusual Klues found in Season 2 of Invasions Mode. Rather than requiring players to use a specific Mortal Kombat 1 fatality or brutality like some of the ones before it, it instead presents them with an incredibly broad choice. There are scores of ways to solve the BRUTAL BUDDY Klue, as players will soon realize once they decipher it.
Before they can do that though, players will first need to make it to the Rampart Mesa, which is found right at the end of the Season of the Blood Moon. BRUTAL BUDDY is tied to Within Reach; a Node that players will need to pass through on their way to find the Armory Key. As it turns out, getting to Within Reach is probably the hardest part, as solving the BRUTAL BUDDY Klue is actually incredibly straightforward.
How to Solve the BRUTAL BUDDY Klue in Mortal Kombat 1
To solve the BRUTAL BUDDY Klue, players will simply need to perform any Kameo Brutality. The button inputs vary from fighter to fighter, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer here. Sektor provides a great option though, as most players will have already unlocked his Fire and Forget Brutality while completing the Spicy Ketchup Klue in the Living Forest. Assuming they do have the move unlocked, players can perform it again here by pressing Forward + Grab (L1 on PlayStation, LB on Xbox, or L on Switch) followed quickly by Down Down when the other kombatant is low on health.
BRUTAL BUDDY Klue Rewards
Upon completing the Brutal Buddy Klue, players will receive Johnny Cage’s Bloody Sunset palette, Liu Kang’s Brilliant Bloodshed palette, and a Legendary talisman. They’ll also get 500 Seasonal Kredits, which can be spent in the Seasonal Store that’s accessed through the game’s main menu. It’s important to note that Seasonal Kredits are tied to the current season of Invasions Mode and will expire once it comes to an end, so players should make sure to spend any leftover Kredits before it’s too late. Sadly, they can’t be used to purchase premium content, but there are plenty of unique cosmetics on offer in the Seasonal Store.
