To be fair though, in completing the tower, there are like 80 other points you'd have earned. So really, it's 100, not 20.

The tower missions really aren't that hard. I'm breezing through and already on mission 180 in two sittings. Only really struggled on a few of them. But that's kind of disappointing that the Mileena flesh pit outfit really did turn out to be the reward.

I'm on 220 and no skips so far. If you got stuck on one, just keep at or ask people on here or on GameFaqs. That's what I did for a couple ;)

Haha when i started this i didnt know anything about it so i figured it was just like 20 or so missions and then come to find out it is 300 and was like HOLY CRAP!! but im glad because now i can play the game for awhile and not get bored. MK RULES THANK YOU ED BOON!!!

@#8 the "breezing through" won't last. trust me. i have 18 missions left. defeating 3 goros in a row was a bit tedious seeing as how you only have one life bar with no health recovery at any time. but yea, they get harder as you go on for the most part.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011 @ 08:54:13 PM

Challenge 251 is completely impossible. I completed the 3 shao kahns, 3 goros, flawless goro, the last one but i can't do this. First of all baraka is the regular fighter I have the the biggest problem facing, sindel is in the top 5, the shao kahn in 251 must be in the ultra f*****g hard lvl becos the only time he stops doing those shouders atacks that looks like nightwolf's is to throw hammers and spears at me.

#20 the one with jax and kabal---to make kabal get in the air use the ground smash; that should make him bounce in the air you use the air gotcha and air throw for that

On Challenge 300, to be honest the only real challenging ones were 251 with Shang Pusung and challenge 300 which is complete BS !!! I keep getting to Shao Khan and he pretty much just rapes me .. I wish skipping this challenge gets you the achievement !

Comment #40 by Or3o Prime
Tuesday, May 03, 2011 @ 10:37:22 AM

Challenge 300 just takes a few tries (about 10-15). DO NOT hit "START" (Pause Menu) and RETRY. Let the Character kill you, and then retry when the game prompts you to choose. The Difficulty will gradually lower until they pretty much just stand there and taunt you. Another added bonus is that a few retried matches in, you health will regenerate a little bit between fighters. This might be the edge some of you need. I known I did. I broke my Fight Stick figuring this out.

Tuesday, May 03, 2011 @ 10:40:03 AM

Any Advise on Army of Goro's and Army of Shao Kahn's. Both still kicking my ass. Challange 300 theory does not work (or at least is not as noticable).

Tuesday, May 03, 2011 @ 06:15:50 PM

Lol, only 3 challenges I can't complete Army of Goro's, Army of Shao Kahn's and challenge 300 End game were you have to fight Goro, Kintaro, Milleena and Shao Kahn on one bar of health, not to mention they get power ups... Though I did just skip challenge 300 and you get an achievement for unlocking Mileena's 3rd costume but unfortunately you don't get the achievement for completing the tower. Pretty much impossible unless you're very very very very lucky :D

Saturday, May 14, 2011 @ 02:55:32 AM

I just beat Barakas, Sindel, and Shao with Shang Tsung and was able to JUST do it with less than 5% health after a million tries. The beginning and middle was a breeze and quite fun and funny with the awkward challenges, but now its becoming a headache to get these last 50 done :(...Still need to do the army of shaos and goro's and not looking forward to it at all. Anyways if anybody has strategies or anything to help on the late 200's challenges for everyone to see, please post them! Thanks and happy hunting to all!

Comment #47 by Ackula
Sunday, May 15, 2011 @ 12:56:10 PM

I beat the 300th one last night after 5 tries. It is pretty easy if you use Scorpion. You just jump over Goro, pop him in the back fir a few hits and combo in the spear throw, rinse and repeat. Same for Kintaro. There will be times when you can't get in a combo, instead just spear them in the back, and when they get to you, just uppercut them, it does 10% damage, which is the same as the combo does. For Mileena I used the same strategy, except you have to watch out for her teleports, as soon as you see her go into a teleport, teleport as well and follow it up with the spear throw. Shao Khan is much easier, just jump in front of him and then quickly jump behind him and uppercut him. When you briefly land in front of him 9/10 he does the hammer sweep move which leaves him vulnerable from beh

Comment #48 by shinigami313
Monday, May 16, 2011 @ 07:59:48 PM

Best way to beat the 300th challenge and I did this on my 4th try cause I was blown away on how epic this match was. I used Liu Kang and spam the hell out of Y,X,A and dash forward to continue the combo. The first match up is between GORO, try to spam that combo or simply run away and shoot low fire balls he wont be able to hit you let alone get close to you. Now you should be able to be it simply with a flawless so don't worry, now kintaro is a sorta bitch to deal with cause he actually chases you a bit. But once you have him in a corner just spam the crap out of that combo then jump back and rinse and repeat, watch out for his grab cause apparently it has a huge hit box and will grab you automatically if trying to jump back, best method to do is dash forward and then jump behind him, so

Comment #49 by shinigami313
Monday, May 16, 2011 @ 08:03:07 PM

some odd reason the AI will detect the dash forward comand first and assume you will attack from there. Now meeena It was hard as hell at first just to pull off the combo but after a while it'll come naturally to you. Now as for meleena match wait till that hoe is about to attack and do your Xfactor. and spam the move cause she's not a defensive character like those two (goro and kintaro) so she'll take the actual damage. so that girl is out the bag. Now shao khan on the other hand he's the easiest of them all! he has the worst AI pattern in the game. Jump and he will jump with you but in the opposite side, dash forward and jump again, and he will jump as well. Dash forward and jump again and he will do it as well, sometimes he'll just stay there and whip out his hammer and do an overhead

How do you kill the big guy?

Comment #51 by fatality789
Thursday, May 19, 2011 @ 01:07:29 PM

I found just 3 challenges difficult: the one with 3 Goros, the one with 3 Shao Kahns and the last one. Last one is pretty bad. But after losing for the 7th time (I counted) your health replenishes somewhat in between the fights and that helps a lot if you want to beat this without spamming. You have to actually LOSE and get killed 7 times (or so) for this to count. Simply hitting the start button and hitting retry won't do. Hope this helps. :)

Comment #52 by fatality789
Thursday, May 19, 2011 @ 01:10:49 PM

Also, skipping any challenge will not unlock this achievement. You must actually beat every single one of them.

Comment #53 by chibi trunk
Sunday, May 22, 2011 @ 04:23:30 AM

good news. for the army of shao khan. just takes a lot of bullets,
and uppercut timing. and the army of goro's use ermics air blast. with
either a uppercut, or 3 to 4 hit combo after you land. if timed right goro
will land his leap attack and you can either uppercut him or combo him.
as for mission 300 shang was the guy i used. soul absorb was my best friend.
did that and uppercuts. by the way when your x-ray feels up use it and hope
it lands.
oh i finally beat the tower, that was the good news..

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 @ 03:12:56 AM

Oh my god, I can't believe it! I just tried # 300 and all i gotta say is it was
a breeze! The way I did it is as follows: let the AI kill you for about
15 times, then (I used Scorpion) spam A,A,B combos on Goro and Kintaro, defeat
Mileena by spamming back, back, X followed by forward+Y,X,B combos and spam
down, back, B followed by an uppercut on Shao Kahn! That's it! And honestly: I
think the Shao Kahn army should have been the last challenge!

Comment #70 by Redneck Rambo84
Friday, June 17, 2011 @ 11:28:28 AM

To beat challenge 300, let Goro beat you about 5 or 6 times, but don't press start to retry the challenge. Wait until the game asks whether you want to continue or not. That is the only way it will work. After about the 6th try, your health will regenerate by 1/3 after every fighter and the opponents are significantly easier. I used Stryker and when I got to Shao Kahn I just shot him over and over again from a distance.

Comment #71 by Travis2310
Sunday, June 19, 2011 @ 06:54:57 PM

This whole achievement is fucking ridiculous. 300 challenges (some which are complete bullshit), for 20 gamerscore and a skanky outfit?

The 3 Shao Kahn challenge is completely insane. Who the fuck sat down and made this challenge, and thought it would be cute to not have health regeneration? It's hard enough beating 1 Shao Kahn, but 3 with one health bar? Using Stryker?

Fuck the developers of MK, and fuck anyone else who had anything to do with making this fucked up game and this fucked up achievement.

Comment #72 by Travis2310
Sunday, June 19, 2011 @ 09:54:34 PM

Finally completed the tower after 2 days. Glad I don't ever have to do some shit like that again.

The easiest way (for me at least) to beat lvl 300 was to use Liu Kang, and cross your opponent up with a jumping "Y" attack, then chain that into the "Y,X,A" combo, and finish with a Flying Kick.

I used that on all four and beat it in like 5-6 tries. Mileena gave me the most difficulty because she doesnt really have a scripted style you can pick up on like the other 3 faggets. But good luck to anyone who doesnt have this yet.

Comment #73 by GoWestYoungMan
Friday, July 01, 2011 @ 11:30:42 PM

This tower is so frustrating. You'd think it'd be worth anything!
300 challenges for a 20 gamerscore and stupid Meelina's big boob'ed outfit is ridiculous.
Then kinda does prevent bordem from the whole game, since the other MK's were just beating the whole 'ladder' thing and finishing story mode.

& How many 'Test Your...'s are there? Can you finish them all in the tower?

Comment #74 by Cirative
Monday, July 11, 2011 @ 02:27:52 AM

For those complaining, it's not "just" 20G. Upon completing the tower, you get:

-10G for unlocking Mileena's third outfit.
-20G for doing all the Test Your Sight challenges.
-20G for doing all the Test Your Might challenges.
-20G for doing all the Test Your Strike challenges.
-10G for completing 25 challenges.
-20G for doing all challenges.

That's a total of 100G. Quit whining.

Comment #80 by Distractor08
Friday, August 05, 2011 @ 04:49:30 PM

For those who have trouble, let me break down strategies to win.

For mission 251 w/ shang tsaug vs baraka, sindel, and kahn.
Do not jump against baraka, he will always counter w/ the annoying spin move as well as don't cast foward fireballs for he always counter w/ his beam attack. Sindel was the easiest. You can jump against her, but same w/ baraka, don't cast normal fireballs. For Kahn, stay away and cast fireballs and dodge his spear and the annoying hammer throw. If he gets to close, jump behind him and if he doesn't dash, do a combo. This was the hardest for me since I stink with shang tsaug.

Comment #81 by Distractor08
Friday, August 05, 2011 @ 04:53:19 PM

For stryker vs the army of kahns. STAY AWAY as much as possible and fire your gun only. Kahn will not be able to throw his spear since his armor goes down and the gun fire is very fast. If he throws a hammer, it will go through. Make sure you jump for that. Kepp the process up till he dies.

For Ermac vs army of goros, which was easier for me. I always like to do the down back x move, then comeback w/ back foward x. get him in a corner and start comboing him. Goro for some reason has a difficult time in a corner. If he blocks, then jump behind him and do the process over.

Comment #82 by Distractor08
Friday, August 05, 2011 @ 05:00:33 PM

For the last and final missio: For the record, it took me six tries. Got it on my sixth try. here is what I did. First of all, NEVER PAUSE AND SELECT RETRY. It is proven that you get a little health back between fights if you keep going as long as you dont pause and restart. I chose Sheeva. For goro, keep jumping behind him and use the y, x, y, foward x till he dies. For kintaro, stay away as much as possible, his ground pound is your friend. If he taunts far away, then fire a fireball. For millena, I don't know. I know you MUST use your x-ray for her and her only. It does the most damage against her. Make sure you block unless you cant and grab her if she is close. For Kahn, I got a flawless. Use the up down method quickly and keep it coming. Kahn always counters and fails.
