Challenge 251 on Vita! WTF!

#1 Edited by Salesmunn (75 posts) -

I'm having a hell of a time with this. I cruised through 250 but 251 is brutal. I can beat Baraka and Sindel relatively easily but I can't get Shao Kahn under 50% health. I watch videos like this and and it looks easy but that jump/uppercut/jump doesn't work at all on the Vita.

Any thoughts? Just advice on beating Shao Kahn with Shang Tsung.

I just cheese him with projectiles from far away. Rarely fails me.

Honestly, you gotta get lucky with the strat he is using. Sometimes the CPU falls for it sometimes they don't. With Kahn you really just gotta try to keep your distance and know how to read his moves. He becomes predictable after you fight him enough. The only problem is when he hits you he hits HARD. Just keep at it duder.

I finally got past it and of course, aced it. It's all about the medium and far ground fireballs. Get Kahn at mid-range do the medium ground fireball, if he's at far range, spam the far ground fireball over and over. If he gets close try to jump over him and maybe sneak in a jump-kick then keep spamming fireballs.

If you start up and he's spamming you with his charging ram attacks over and over, you're fucked.
