Mortal Kombat 1 Tips the Scales Towards Player 1
A significant issue has arisen for those who pick player 2 in Mortal Kombat 1, typically younger siblings across the globe. Regardless of your chosen fighter, Kameo, or stance, you'll find you can't connect combos as seamlessly as player 1. This puzzling problem, demonstrated in YouTube videos and recognized by experienced players, is believed to involve the hurtbox for player 1, although the WB Games bug portal hasn't confirmed this theory.
However, the bug portal has acknowledged that they're currently examining the issue, suggesting it'll be resolved shortly. So, until then, it's best to steer clear of choosing player 2 when indulging in a friendly session of Mortal Kombat 1.
