The Forge can be unlocked by exploring the Krypt area of Mortal Kombat 11. As such, the first step to unlocking the Forge is heading to the Krypt. If this is your first time visiting the Krypt, you’ll want to open the two free chests at the start as you’ll get 100,000 Koins this way. Next, head straight down the hallway until you run into the Hammer of Shang Tsung.

Once you've smashed through the wooden gate with the Hammer of Shang Tsung, head into the next area and to your left to find a breakable wall to smash open in Mortal Kombat 11.

Pick up the hammer, then use it to smash through the wooden gate straight ahead. Head through the hole you’ve smashed into the gate towards the back, then turn left and look to your left. Along the wall, you’ll see cracks which indicate this section can be smashed with the Hammer. By smashing the wall, you’ll open a new area with a gong inside.

Use your Hammer of Shang Tsung to bang the gong to unlock the Enough Already achievement as well as the Forge area of the Krypt in Mortal Kombat 11.

Use your Hammer to bang the gone and you’ll earn the “Enough Already” achievement and will also open a gate in the previous area. Head back through the smashed wall, then look to your left to find the set of large wooden doors open. Head through the wooden doors and you’ll be able to unlock and enter the Forge.

By interacting with the Forge, you’ll be able to mix materials to create new, powerful items. For example, we mixed together 1 Copper Plating, 1 Element of Order, and 1 Essence of Edenian Magic to create x10 Ethereal Armor. Again, the Forge area can be unlocked in the Krypt itself. Once the Forge is unlocked, you can visit it whenever you like in order to mix materials together and craft items.
