In Mortal Kombat 11, you can explore the Krypt and open chests, including special Flaming Chests. Unlike Chests which are relatively straightforward, in that you can open them by spending Koins, Flaming Chests are a bit more confusing. First, you have to find a special item, then you have to have a different currency than Koins.
To simplify everything, we’ve put together a guide on how to open Flaming Chests in side the Krypt area of Mortal Kombat 11.
Open the Krypt Flaming Chests in Mortal Kombat 11
To unlock cosmetic and consumable items, it’s recommended that you explore the Krypt area of Mortal Kombat 11 and open up Chests. In addition to your standard Chests, which can be opened in exchange for Koins, there are special types including Flaming Chests. When you first encounter one in Mortal Kombat 11, you’ll likely notice that you’re unable to open it.
Instead, you’ll need to meet a few other requirements before you can open Flaming Chests. First, you’ll need to find and pick up the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi (aka Scorpion’s Spear) inside the Krypt. To get the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi, you’ll need to make your way into the Armory in Goro’s Lair. If you’ve yet to open Goro’s Lair, you’ll need to pick up the Cracked Horn of Motaro and use it to unlock Goro’s Lair inside the Krypt.
Once inside Goro’s Lair, look around for a pillar with flames streaking through it. Interact with this pillar, and you’ll acquire the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi. Next, explore the Krypt until you spot a Flaming Chest. With the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi, you’ll be able to suppress the Chest’s flames by hitting nearby pot lanterns with your Spear.
With the flames quenched, you’ll be able to open the Flaming Chest by spending Hearts, rather than Koins. To recap, you’ll need the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi (aka Scorpion’s Spear) before you can open Flaming Chests. Using this Spear, hit nearby pot lanterns to quench the flames, then interact with the Flaming Chest again and spend Hearts to open it.
