What are the strongest AI teams in MK11? 

AI Battles is a popular mode in Mortal Kombat 11 where players create teams of computer controlled characters to fight each other and rise up the rankings.

We'll list the best loadouts found so far. Keep in mind the importance of augments in your loadout, some of these teams may be underwhelming without them.

Just keep playing as you will randomly get more augments as rewards. And don't be afraid to play around with your stats but generally, close to 30 points in Rushdown and Kombos is ideal for damage output and keeping your AI at the right ranges to do that damage.

10. Bloody Brawlers

Kabal unleashes the fury in his Fatal Blow attack.

This unusual team consists of a Black Dragon, a Kahn and a Blood Priestess. These unlikely allies make for an underrated team composition. Make sure to load out Kabal for combo potential and a bit of stats in counters to optimize his whiff punishes. Kotal Khan should have his totems and Tecuani specials and Skarlet should be geared towards zoning. 

Team Characters:

  • Kabal
  • Kotal Khan
  • Skarlet

What makes this team powerful?

  • Kabal can be geared towards zoning as well as the normal rushdown loadout. 
  • Noob Saibot in particular is extremely useful and easily beats most characters with his high damage and his teleport. 
  • Sonya matches well against Noob Saibot so use her to help counter other teams using Noob.

9. Shaolin Style

Liu Kang and Kung Lao are dropping their first mixtape next month.

The Shaolin Monks and the Thunder God assemble for this furious team. Look to equip your characters for max damage output. In particular, you’ll want to Raiden with Thunder Wave and Kung Lao without his Orbiting Hat, as he’ll waste precious resources on it. You really can’t go wrong with Liu Kang, he’s basically Bruce Lee with fireballs. 

Team Characters: 

  • Liu Kang
  • Kung Lao
  • Raiden 

What makes this team powerful?

  • High damage output and versatility, just add a bit more stat points to counters to help make sure your fighters are the ones doing the fatalities at the end of the match!
  • Raiden has excellent augments for maxing out his damage to ridiculous levels.
  • Liu Kang and Kung Lao have augments that make them more powerful together.

8. Team Special Forces

Special Forces are the military in a world where fighting ability determines everything.

The Special Forces only accept the best and this team is representative of that. Jax is also a great choice as well to substitute for Sonya or Jacqui. Pay attention to what augments you have to help make that decision as it can really make a big difference during a fight. 

Team Characters:

  • Sonya 
  • Cassie Cage
  • Jacqui Briggs

What makes this team powerful?

  • This team does great damage all around, and is a good choice for easy wins at lower ranks. 
  • Cassie Cage can be dangerous if you apply a bit of stat points in zoning and grappling, make sure to equip her with her low gun-shot. 
  • Jacqui Briggs has some bad matchups but she will eat certain characters alive, even when they have better augments then her. 

7. No Man’s Land

There were men here, before Skarlet killed them all.

This team of ladies will create obstacle courses of projectile attacks for your opponent to weave through. This is a keepaway team through and through, excellent for countering certain rushdown characters like Geras and Jacqui. Make sure to load out your characters with their best zoning tools, like Skarlet’s Blood Ball and Jade’s Air Glaive. 

Team Characters:

  • Skarlet
  • Jade
  • Cetrion

What makes this team powerful? 

  • This team is excellent for dealing with rushdown characters.
  • All of these characters have useful augments for supporting their zoning by increasing damage on their special attacks and granting similar buffs. 
  • Cetrion is a lesser used character which means less people are accounting for her in team building. 

6. Team Ninjutsu

Anyone who has seen the first MK11 trailer hears 21 Savage when they look at this picture. 

No one can stop this Deadly Alliance! Scorpion and the Sub-Zero brothers team up for consistent damage and counters. With the right augments, few teams will be able to stand up to these classic “palette swap” ninjas. 

Team Characters:

  • Scorpion
  • Sub-Zero
  • Noob Saibot 

What makes this team powerful?

  • Scorpion counters certain characters well thanks to his teleport and consistent damage output
  • Sub-Zero has some bad matchups but his Krushing Blows are very effective and make for some swaggy comebacks. 
  • All three characters have augments that raise damage based on how many Ninja are on the team, exponentially increasing your team’s damage. 

5. Team Lovestruck

Jade is considering a new boyfriend at this point in the Story Mode. 

Jade and Kotal Khan were reunited in the story mode in a romantic scene, but now they are skilled warriors in AI battles. Baraka can come too, his damage is always welcome. This team requires matchup knowledge but keep Jade against rushdown characters and Kotal against zoners and you should find success.  

Team Characters:

  • Kotal
  • Jade
  • Baraka

What makes this team powerful?

  • Since the latest patch, Kotal has become a useful AI battle character, make sure to equip him with Tecuani Maul as it’s very effective.
  • Jade should have several points put into zoning and counters to help her strong keepaway.
  • Baraka does crazy damage and that’s what the people want to see. 

4. Team Noob

Dr. Claw has returned as a spectre to haunt the MK11 universe. 

This is a well rounded team that is based around Noob Saibot, who is very strong in AI battles.  It all comes down to his damage and the AI's inability to consistently punish Noob's teleport. Jade will help you counter certain characters with her keepaway tactics and Liu is well rounded with high damage. They help cover Noob’s bad matchups which will leave Noob to pick up an easy win.  

Team Characters: 

  • Noob
  • Jade
  • Liu Kang

What makes this team powerful?

  • Noob is a strong AI battle character in general and this team compliments him well.
  • Jade is a heavy zoner and can lock the opponent down with her glaive pressure.
  • Liu Kang is a solid choice in general for his Krushing Blows and fireball game.  

3. Combo Video

Do you even know how to do 50% combos?

As we know by now, Noob is an excellent character in AI battles, being very useful for beginners and still viable at higher ranks. Sonya and Geras round the team out and can bring it home in the rare occasion that Noob should lose. Make sure to take away Geras’ Big Fist and give him Sand Spikes for extra combo potential. 

Team characters: 

  • Noob Saibot
  • Sonya Blade
  • Geras 

What makes this team powerful?

  • This team consists of beginner friendly characters who don’t need augments to produce immediate results. 
  • Noob Saibot in particular is extremely useful and easily beats most characters with his high damage and his teleport. 
  • Sonya matches well against Noob Saibot so use her to help counter other teams using Noob.

2. Team Outworld

You don't want to know what is in those eggs. 

Similar to our top ranked team, this team features a crew from Outworld and punishes the opponent with big damage. You want D’vorah to avoid trying to set up her offense and just go for damage which is almost always more effective against the AI, so load her out with Deadly Swarm and the Widow’s Kiss teleport. Shao and Baraka should be geared up for their highest damage potential.

  Team Characters: 

  • D'Vorah
  • Shao Khan
  • Baraka 

What makes this team powerful?

  • This team can potentially have powerful augments that buff damage depending on how many characters are from Outworld.
  • The damage output is among the best in the game.
  • D’Vorah is an unusual pick and players may not be accounting for her when building loadouts.

1. Outworld Rulers

Shao Kahn gives his fellow Kahn a nice massage.

The savage land of Outworld produces savages indeed, with this team dealing massive amounts of damage. For stat spread, keep it simple without much deviation from 30 points in Rushdown/Combos. Kotal should be equipped with Khan Cut, you should avoid taunts and buffs for Shao and Baraka should have Gutted for maximum destruction. 

Team Characters:

  • Kotal Khan 
  • Shao Khan 
  • Baraka 

What makes this team powerful?

  • This team capitalizes on augments that increase damage for each other Outworlder on the team as well as Shao. 
  • The combination of 9% damage increases from augments can lead your team doing insane damage. 
  • The high damage output will make matches faster which will lead to more rewards and augments.
