Mortal Kombat 11 has some exceptional fighters and the DLC additions have been nothing to scoff at either. That being said, there are some releases that have been better than others, especially in terms of skill, so we decided to see where each Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighter ranks in terms of tier placement for those looking to up their fighter game to a professional level. 

Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Fighter Tier List

The below tier list comes from a consensus based on player feedback on an average scale. While this is accurate on a general basis, it is important to note that there's no "one" way to play the game and every player has their own unique fighting style. That being said, there is a science to the varying skills each character has to offer, so without further adieu: 

  • Shang Tsung - S Tier
  • Sindel - S Tier 
  • Terminator T-800 - A+ Tier
  • Nightworld - A Tier
  • Shao Kahn - B Tier

There are even more DLC characters on the way, including the highly anticipated Joker addition coming next month and Spawn later on in the Spring. We'll update this list should the tiers change due to character tweaks in future patches and with the inclusion of new characters. 

As for the game itself, Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. You can learn even more about our thoughts on the fighter with a small blurb below from our full review:

"Mortal Kombat 11 has everything you could possibly want in a new MK title except for maybe a Shaolin Monks-style mini-game. There’s plenty of single-player content to enjoy, great online multiplayer with some of the nest netcode we’ve seen in modern fighting games, a large and varied character roster, and the best graphics in a fighting game this console generational. It will be very difficult for NetherRealm to top what they have here."
