While it was never a full-on weaon-based series like Soul Calibur or Samurai Shodown, MK had weapons being used for the vast majority of it's games and for a vast majority of characters in the series, with the weapons having their level of usage, visibility and gameplay impact being changed from game to game, and in some cases, from character to character.

In his newest video, Ketchup breaks down everything that weapons have brought to the MK series, from Mortal Kombat II all the way to Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

Author's note: Technically speaking, the MK series started to have weapons since Mortal Kombat 1, but it was only with Scorpion and Kano and with only 1 special move each (Scorpion's Spear and Kano's Knife Toss), while MK2 was the game that really gave the signs of things to come for the series as the concept of weapons has been used for more characters and not only way more than just one special move, but Fatalities as well.

Check out the video from Ketchup below, enjoy:
