While the overall journey to get the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi is not long, it can be confusing, especially if you don’t know where you’re going. The Krypt is a puzzling place, and it’s very easy for players to get turned around. The good news is, we’ll walk you through each step one at a time and go over all the items you need to collect as well as any locations that you’ll need to visit to complete this task.

The first step to acquiring the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi is to first acquire the Gem of the Living. To get this item, you will need to explore the Krypt and pass through The Courtyard. To gain access to the area you need to visit, look behind the massive throne-like structure and bash the wall in using Shao Khan’s Hammer. Inside you’ll find a gong that you can ring to open one of the sets of massive wooden doors in The Courtyard.

MK11 - Door to Goro's Lair

Head through this area, following the path along the right. This will lead you past a small shrine area and into the Warrior Shrine. You should now see several statue heads along the wall on your right, as well as a massive door at the end of the path. As you approach the door, a small meteorite should land on the path. Hit it with Shao Khan’s Hammer to acquire the Gem of the Living.

Now that you have the Gem of the Living, make your way back through the Crypt to The Courtyard. Once here, look for the hole in the wall that you broke through earlier. You need to enter the same area where you range the gong before. The entrance to this area can be found behind the massive throne-like area in The Courtyard. There are two possible ways to enter this area, though both will require you to use Shao Khan’s hammer to break through a crumbling wall.

Once in the area with the gong, look for the door on the left-hand side of the area. Use the Gem of the Living to gain access to the area beyond. Pass through the doorway to enter the Gardens. This is a new area you can explore in the Krypt. For now, though, beeline through this portion of the island. Pass across the bridge and then head up the stairs to the left. This should take you into the Vault.

MK11 - Cracked Horn of Motaro

The next item you need to collect on your journey to collect the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi is found inside the Vault. Look for a lever on the wall and activate it. This should open a gate. Head inside the gate and you will find the Cracked Horn of Motaro. Pick up the item and then it’s time to return to the Warrior’s Shrine to continue your journey.

After making it back over to the Warrior Shrine, approach the large door and use the Cracked Horn of Motaro. This will open the door and give you access to a path that leads down into Goro’s Lair. Head down into the lair using the elevator. Follow the path through Goro’s Great Hall and into Goro’s Throne Room. Your destination here is a doorway off to the right of the throne. Taking this path will eventually lead you through to The Armory. Here you’ll find the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi wedged into the wall at the back of The Armory. Approach it and pick it up to add it to your inventory.

You’ll get a brief tutorial on how to use the item, as the gate will have slammed down behind you. To exit the room, you’re going to want to use the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi to break the lantern torch over the door. This will cause the door to open, giving you access to the rest of Goro’s Lair once more.

How to use the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi in Mortal Kombat 11

Now that you have Scorpion’s Spear, it’s time to start using it. This item has a few different important uses. For one, you can now use it to pull hanging bodies to you. This will allow you to acquire some Hearts or even Koins from them, which will provide opportunities for you to open up even more chests throughout the Krypt.

The primary use for the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi, though, is to unlock specific doors or even chests. All throughout the Krypt there are various chests with flaming skulls on them. If you approach them, you won’t get any kind of prompt to unlock them. However, if you have the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi, you can look around for various hanging torches. When you use the spear on these torches, the flames on the chests will disappear, allowing you to actually unlock them.

Now that you know how to get the Spear of Hanzo Hasahi as well as how to use the spear throughout the Krypt, make sure you continue exploring and gathering new items and trinkets. There are a ton of great skins and items to be found in the Krypt, so be sure to return to it often when you have enough Koins or Hearts to open up new chests.
