Mortal Kombat X: How to access Triborg's Cyber Sub-Zero variant

Triborg is a new fighter in Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat XL and he holds a secret fourth variation. Find out how to access his Cyber Sub-Zero variant.


Those that have picked up either Mortal Kombat XL or the Kombat Pack 2 for Mortal Kombat X have likely been dealing some mechanical mayhem with Triborg, whether it's with the machine's Sektor, Cyrax, or Smoke variation. However, some may have discovered that there's a fourth variation for the cyborg fighter: Cyber Sub-Zero. So exactly how does one access this much cooler (in more ways than one) variant?

In order to access Triborg's Cyber Sub-Zero variation, select the fighter, as normal. When the prompt to select a variation comes up, hit Up on the D-pad twice. A 'Cursor Hidden' selection will be highlighted, where hitting Back Punch (Triangle/Y) will select the Cyber Sub-Zero variation. You must hit Back Punch for this to work. Simply hitting the Confirm button as normal will select Sektor.

Repeat the process for any match, in which you desire to use the Cyber Sub-Zero variation. Here are the frozen cyborg's moves:

  • Ice Ball: Back, Forward, Front Punch
  • Slide: Down, Back, Back Kick
  • Air Far Dive Kick: (Mid-air) Down + Back Kick
  • Ice Bomb: Down, Down, Back Punch
  • Drone: Down, Down, Front Kick

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
