After focusing on Injustice 2 for the last couple of years, NetherRealm Studios is returning to their roots with the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat 11.

First announced at The Game Awards on December 7, Mortal Kombat 11 is the next chapter in the acclaimed and iconic fighting game series.

What announcements can we expect from the stream?

Characters

It’s expected that NetherRealm will reveal the full Mortal Kombat 11 roster during the gameplay reveal stream.

Raiden and Scorpion have already been shown off in the initial trailer, meaning they’re a lock for the final roster. Shao Khan was also confirmed as a pre-order bonus, as well.

Beyond those three, we can certainly expect the Mortal Kombat staples of Sub-ZeRo, Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage to show up.

Mortal Kombat is also known for having plenty of crossover characters on the roster (everyone remember Alien and Predator?), so there’s truly no telling what NetherRealm has in store here.

Weapons could be on their way back to the Mortal Kombat franchise for the first time since 2006.

Gameplay mechanics

Given that this is a “gameplay reveal,” there’s no doubt that we’ll see plenty of gameplay footage for fans to sink their teeth into.

Ever since Mortal Kombat 9 back in 2011, NetherRealm fighting games have all used a similar fighting system that fans have grown accustomed to over the years.

A feature that could finally be making its way back to the Mortal Kombat franchise is weapons. Both Raiden and Scorpion made heavy use of various weapons in the initial announcement trailer, meaning that a feature that hasn’t been seen since Mortal Kombat: Armageddon in 2006 could be making a return.

Demo

While not confirmed in any way, there have been rumors floating around over the last few days that point to a special demo being released in the days following the reveal.

There has already been a beta announced that is exclusive to those who pre-order but it sounds like NetherRealm might have something else up its sleeve.

All Apex Legends Season 6 weapon TTKs revealed: body vs head

An Apex Legends fan has taken the time to break down every single weapon’s time-to-kill (TTK) for Season 6, all the way from the lowly Mozambique to the deadly R-99.

For those who are still not sure which guns to prioritize in Apex Legends’ sixth season, help is on the way. While everyone’s comfort with recoil control and the game’s attachment loot RNG makes gun preference entirely subjective, it is worth knowing how each gun performs at a base level.

As such, a YouTuber by the name of ‘Davengeful’ has blessed King’s Canyon’s best with the nitty gritty details of how each of the battle royale’s weapons performs in a standardized lab environment. 

Standing within 10 meters of a red training dummy (or, technically, ‘DUMMIE,’ which stands for Digital Utility Mock Man Intelligent Example), Davengeful tested all of the game’s Season 6 assault rifles, light machine guns, submachine guns, and shotguns. Standing further away, they also tested the sniper rifles.

For these tests, Davengeful did not use any hop-up attachments and simply fired with perfect accuracy to gain a base stat. That means there is no Selectfire Prowler data to be used, just the gun’s typical burst behavior. Still, the regular version of the SMG remains one of the strongest guns in the game.

As no surprise to players who have dropped into a game of Apex Legends even once, the Mozambique is a grotesque weapon. While its headshot TTK is decent (and faster than some of the game’s other guns), its body TTK is a whopping 4.504 seconds. 

For context, that’s slightly longer than it would take for you to down four enemies, hitting just body shots, with the R-99.

The R-99 simply continues to shred enemies in Season 6.

With TTK listed in seconds and no hop-ups included, here’s how the Season 6 list of weapons stacks up. This is current as of October 16, 2020, so all data is subject to change with the release of new patches.

As it stands, the list proceeds downward from light weapon, to heavy, to sniper, to energy, to shotgun, and, finally, the highly touted R-99 Supply Drop gift.

RE-45 1.103 1.389
P2020 1.231 1.770
R-301 0.689 1.262
Alternator 1.040 1.517
G7 Scout 1.009 1.741
Wingman 1.009 1.834
Spitfire 0.785 1.453
Prowler 0.785 1.262
Hemlok 0.689 1.549
Flatline 0.817 1.231
Sentinel 2.053 3.581
Charge Rifle 2.242 3.517
Longbow 1.009 2.625
Triple Take 1.009 1.741
Volt 0.913 1.231
Devotion 1.103 1.581
Havoc 1.103 1.612
L-Star 0.722 1.326
Mozambique 1.198 4.504

Mastiff 1.198 1.262
Peacekeeper 1.294 1.549
R-99 0.850 1.103

As you’ll notice, the R-99 is entirely deserving of its rarity because it has the game’s fastest body TTK and one of the fastest headshot TTKs. Its longtime companion among revered light guns, the R-301, is also devastating — with the fastest headshot TTK in the entire game.

While the snipers may feel underpowered from this table, it should be remembered that this is only raw, base data. Snipers are easier to hit shots with from range, thanks to scopes and bullet velocity, so players shouldn’t be discouraged just by the data found here.

Still, they should be discouraged from using the Mozambique. The numbers aren’t lying with that one.
