To unlock the Mortal Kombat 11 Forge, you need to venture deep within the Krypt. Within this Krypt mode, you'll need to find new Forge recipes, so you can take the items you've accumulated in the Krypt, and use them to create new items. In our Mortal Kombat 11 Forge Recipes guide, we'll be putting together a list of all the Forge recipes we've found so far while exploring the Krypt.
Mortal Kombat 11 Forge Recipes
Finding Forge recipes in Mortal Kombat 11 is a tricky business. The trouble is, all the chests that you unlock within the Krypt by spending Koins can randomly contain a rare Mortal Kombat 11 Forge recipe, but because they're all randomly placed, you can never guarantee which chests will hold a recipe. Below, we've compiled a table of all the Forge recipes that we've found so far. Keep in mind that when any of the recipes below only list two out of the three items, it's because the third required item for crafting is left a mystery by the game. You'll have the experiment in order to discover the mysterious third item required for a recipe.

How to Unlock the Forge in Mortal Kombat 11
But how do you unlock the Forge in Mortal Kombat 11? It's not a separate mode or option from the main menu of the game, but it's actually located within the Krypt mode. When you first enter the Krypt, you'll have a straight hallway to proceed down, flanked by unlockable chests either side of you, until you can pick up the Hammer of Shang Tsung.
When you've smashed through the wooden gate using the hammer, turn left. You can head past the portal on the wall, to a weaker section of the wall that you can destroy by using the hammer.
In this new area you can get to by destroying the wall, there's a large gong. Hit the gong, and you'll unlock the 'Enough Already' Achievement/Trophy, which in turn unlocks the Forge. From here, simply head back out to the main area, and a large wooden gate in the direction of the moon will now be open. This leads to the Forge.
How to Use the Forge in Mortal Kombat 11
Press X/A when in front of the Forge, and you'll be taken into the crafting menu. This is where you can combine three items to create one new item, be it a piece of gear, weapon for a character, or even a brand new Fatality move.
At the current time, it's not yet clear whether you can replicate items from Forge recipes that you haven't unlocked. If this is the case, then all you need to do is look up discovered Forge recipes and create the items, but if you do need to unlock recipes before you use them, then it could be a pretty long grind.
