Soul Fragments are one of many currency types that players will need to collect in Mortal Kombat 11.

In this guide we’ll discuss the various ways that players can farm Soul Fragments.


How to farm Soul Fragments in Mortal Kombat 11

Players looking to stock up on Soul Fragments in Mortal Kombat 11 will have their work cut out for them. As one of the primary currencies in the game, getting plenty of Soul Fragments will be key to unlocking all of the various items hidden in Mortal Kombat 11’s Krypt. Thankfully, players will find a multitude of ways available to them for Soul Fragment farming.

The Krypt

While it might seem silly, being as this is where you will spend your Soul Fragments, the Krypt can actually be a great place to farm Soul Fragments as well. While you’ll spend more of them here than you make, you’ll have the opportunity to find Soul Fragments when opening chests that you find throughout the Krypt. You can also keep an eye out for special puzzles and doors that will reward you with some Soul Fragments when opened. Also, you’ll find various doors that you can open inside of Goro’s Lair, where you’ll be able to earn upwards of ten Soul Fragments just for progressing through the area.

Opening doors in the Krypt will often reward you with additional Soul Fragments.

After opening up the second door in the main courtyard, you’ll also start to hear the sounds of large rocks crashing into the ground. These rocks, when broken up, can also reward you with various goodies, including anywhere from five, ten, fifteen, or even twenty-five Soul Fragments.

Finally, there is a special hidden NPC that players can find while exploring Goro’s Lair. Inside of Goro’s Dining Hall, there is a locked door that players can unlock. When unlocked it will lead you down to the Torture Halls in Goro’s Lair. Here you can use Kenshi’s Blindfold to find a breakable wall. Tear it down and then interact with the strange statue beyond. This will cause the NPC to appear and run off. Find the character elsewhere in the Krpyt, hit it with Shao Kahn’s Hammer, and you will be rewarded with a hefty two-hundred Soul Fragments for your troubles.

Towers of Time and Klassic Towers

As one of the most diverse things that will keep players busy over the coming months, the Towers of Time and the Klassic Towers can be a great way to farm for various currencies, especially Soul Fragments. Completing a match in the Towers of Time will always reward you with ten Soul Fragments, when you bring home the victory. Make sure you’re prepared to win, and then hop in and start earning Soul Fragments.

You can also hop into the Klassic Towers and earn some Soul Fragments. The big kicker here, though is that not every Tower will reward you with these precious items. Instead, you’ll need to shoot for the Champion Tower. Completing the Champion Tower (which is eight fights) will reward you with 7 Soul Fragments. You’ll also earn an additional 70 Soul Fragments just for complete the Tower, though, which could make it worth it for some.

Each Tower in the Towers of Time can reward you with Soul Fragments.

You’ll also find that each Tower in Mortal Kombat 11 has various rewards called Performance Rewards. Some of these will reward you with some Soul Fragments for completing different performance-based milestones, like completing a Tower in a certain amount of time. You’ll also want to always try to maximize your score in the Towers that you compete in, as getting Brutality kills will usually earn you extra points towards these rewards as well.

AI fights

If you really want to buckle down and go into farming mode, then looking into AI fights could be your ticket to success. These fights pit 3 fighters of your choosing against another 3 fighters in a battle to see which AI will win. You won’t actually be playing here, which means you can set the fight up, then head off and take care of something else while it finishes up, or just watch the brutal battles take place.

Setting up an Endless Klassic Towers run with AI fighters can be a good way to farm for Soul Fragments.

You’ll still need to set the AI fighters up with any consumables that will even out the playing field. Overall, they perform well enough on their own that you shouldn’t have to worry too much so long as you pay attention to the modifiers of the current match. It’s especially useful to just set your AI fighters up on an Endless Klassic Tower and enjoy the 10 Soul Fragments per battle that roll in as your fighters complete the various tiers of the Tower. You do get a bit of a penalty for using AI fighters, though, which can hinder you from hitting specific performance rewards. So, be sure to keep that in mind.

Daily Challenges and Login Bonuses

Each day that players login and play Mortal Kombat 11, they’ll find a series of challenges available for them to complete. These challenges range from different tasks that are easy, to more difficult tasks as well. Sometimes these challenges will pay out upwards of one hundred Soul Fragments, which makes them a great way to grind out some easy fragments. You can also earn some login bonuses, which will be granted each day that you log on to the game and play. These rewards can be a series of different rewards, including Soul Fragments, though the chance here appears to be pretty slim.

Farming for Soul Fragments is an important part of progressing in Mortal Kombat 11. Like the other currencies that you can find in the game, Soul Fragments should always be on the players mind, and you’ll want to do everything you can to maximize earning them. Make sure to follow the tips we’ve provided in this guide, as this will make it much easier to unlock all the secrets hidden in Mortal Kombat 11’s Krypt.
