  • How Many Currencies Are In Mortal Kombat 1

As it has become more common in the previous and the present generation of fighting games, Mortal Kombat 1 comes with more than one currency. In fact, there are quite a few, and it can be confusing to know which one you want to farm and what coins you won’t be able to get just by winning matches.

How Many Currencies Are In Mortal Kombat 1

There are four different types of money you can earn in Mortal Kombat 1: Koins, Seasonal Kredits, Dragon Krystals, and Krowns. You can get almost all of them by just playing the game (and even by losing battles!), but one is exclusive to one mode and another one is only purchasable with real-life money.

Koins are your basic income. You get this by fighting in the Ladder, playing against other players online, having battles and finding chests in Invasion Mode, and completing the tutorials and daily challenges.

For example, the starting quests give you 250 Koins. Cleaning the basics tutorial (the first set) will give you 1,250 Koins.

You use these in the Shrine, which will give you a random collectible for each 1,000 Koins you donate.

While you can receive skins, gear, and more in the Shrine, please note that it’s most likely that you will get many pieces of concept art in a row as there are lots of them to unlock.

Seasonal Kredits

Seasonal Kredits are used exclusively to purchase things in the Seasonal Store. This is a market that has multiple skins and individual pieces of gear for all the available characters.

The first season, The Season of Spectre, will last until November 1, 2023.

To earn Seasonal Kredits, you need to have battles in Invasion Mode, Ladders, or in the multiplayer. You earn this currency whether you win or lose, but the amount you earn will change depending on that and other factors, like if you used a Finisher, a Fatal Blow, and other battle conditions.

In Invasion Mode, you’ll earn 100 Seasonal Kredits for just winning battles. If you add a Finisher, you’ll get 150.

You can also earn this coin by finishing daily and weekly quests after completing the initial batch of quests available.

Krowns are currency exclusive to Invasion Mode. You’ll earn it by winning your fights (50 for each win), and you can only spend it in this mode’s Shop and Forge. The Shop lets you buy Konsumables, and the Forge lets you upgrade your Talismans with the Komponents you find.

Finally, Dragon Krystals are the coin used for microtransactions. They cost real money and you’ll be able to purchase unique skins and gear that you wouldn’t be able to get with in-game currencies.
