Mortal Kombat 1 – Peacemaker Fatalities and Strategy Guide

Like previous entries in the series, Mortal Kombat 1 is rolling out plenty of DLC fighters, with the game’s first “Kombat Pack” including Omni-Man from Invincible, Quan Chi, Peacemaker from Suicide Squad, Ermac, Homelander from The Boys, and Takahashi Takeda.

The latest of these DLC characters, who officially joins the roster today, is Peacemaker. But how does this wayward superhero with John Cena’s chin from the latest Suicide Squad movie and ensuing self-titled HBO Max series actually play? And perhaps more importantly, how do you pull off his gruesome Fatalities? Don’t worry, we’ll quickly get you up to speed on the ins and outs of Peacemaker…

As you can see, each Fatality has to be performed a certain distance away from your opponent. If you want to get a better sense of what we mean by “close,” “mid,” and “far,” just choose Learn from the main menu then pop into Fatalities, and the game will show you the exact ranges you need to be standing at. Every fighter in MK1 has a pair of Fatalities – one that’s available from the start and one that won’t be added to your move list until you unlock them (here’s how you can do that). That said, you can still do all Fatalities, even if they haven’t been officially unlocked, if you know the right inputs.

Here’s how to pull off Peacemaker’s two Fatalities:

  • Pest Exterminator– Down, Forward, Down, Back Kick (Mid)
  • Fatality #2 – Forward, Back, Forward, Back, Front Kick (Mid)

Peacemaker isn’t the speediest or most agile kombatant, with very little in the way of arial offense, but he’s a solid heavy-hitting brawler with some good combos that can relieve opponents of 40 or 50 percent of their life bar, even without burning any meter. He has a number of ranged moves, most notably his gun and his bird buddy “Eagly” he summons to the battlefield, and some good get-in moves, like his torpedo attack. The best strategy I’ve found so far is to shoot your opponent from afar, get in close with torpedo, then start chaining together some heavy combos. Another key to Peacemaker is his forcefield, which makes him immune to projectiles for a limited time, thus making it even easier to get in close to opponents and start busting out the combos.

Mortal Kombat 1 can be played on PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and Switch. The Kombat Pack that includes Peacemaker will set you back $40 and is also included in the MK1’s $110 Ultimate Edition. You can check out more of Wccftech’s Mortal Kombat 1 guides here.
