Mortal Kombat 1 has reintroduced Quitalities, one of the most brutal combos to finish an online match after your opponent disconnects from the fight. Here’s everything you need to know about Quitalities in Mortal Kombat 1.

First introduced in Mortal Kombat X, Quitalities have become an iconic way to deal with rage quitters while playing an online match. As a fun and comical feature that’s available to all characters, a Quitality is one of the legendary finishing combos, similar to a Brutality or a Fatality in Mortal Kombat 1.

Even if classic Mortal Kombat players already know what’s behind a Quitality finisher, new players can get confused about what it is and how to perform it. So, here’s all the information you need to do a Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1.

How to perform a Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1

A Quitality only happens when an opponent quits in the middle of a Mortal Kombat 1 match. If your rival decides to ragequit or is disconnected before the fight has played out, then a Quitality will be triggered.

Much like the iconic Fatality or Brutality finishers, when a player leaves the fight, the lights will go down and a brutal move will be performed. However, the key difference is that a Quitality sees the losing character carry out the act on themselves before the announcer and a graphic confirms the end of the fight.

Quitalities are one of many finishers in Mortal Kombat 1.

Unlike the other messy takedowns in Mortal Kombat 1, a Quitality doesn’t require a specific input to pull off. Instead, players have to wait for their opponents to leave early to witness the bloody but hilarious end to the match.

Unfortunately, this does mean that a Quitality can only show up in online matches in Mortal Kombat 1 and there is no way to perform them in single-player games against the CPU.
