How To Play Raiden In Mortal Kombat X, PS4 Controls For Main Moves, Fatalities & Brutalities

Mortal Kombat X's Raiden has three different variations: Master of Storms, Thunder God and Displacer. The Displacer variation reveals pretty useful against evasive enemies, because activating it you can teleport right in front of them and attack. They won't ever know what you are really about to do, because thanks to Raiden you will be able to stay in any place in the arena and willing to make whatever you can to beat the opponent.

Raiden In Mortal Kombat X

This is Displacer's unique move set:

Electric Fly: Back, Forward, X
Lightning: Down, Back, Square
Vicinity Blast: Down, Back, Triangle
Electrocute: Down, Forward, Triangle
Rising Thunder: Down, Back, X

Thunder God variation is a very classic Raiden with some kind of supercharge. Moves are the very same we have always appreciated from this classic fighter, even though they are now even more powerful.

This is Thunder God's unique move set:

Electric Fly: Back, Forward, X
Lightning: Down, Back, Square
Vicinity Blast: Down, Back, Triangle
Electrocute: Down, Forward,
Rising Thunder: Down, Back, X

Master of Storms is the ultimate variation if you want to have control on the arena you are fighting in. Thanks to this variation, Raiden is able to set traps all over the place and to decide whenever and however to use those.

Using traps can reveal fundamental with way too aggressive opponents, too.

Electric Fly: Back, Forward, X
Lightning: Down, Back, Square
Vicinity Blast: Down, Back, Triangle
Electrocute: Down, Forward, Triangle
Rising Thunder: Down, Back, X
Static Trap: (Front), Down, Forward, Circle

Fatalities:

(Close-range) Forward, Back, Forward, Square
(Long-range) Down, Forward, Back, Forward, Circle

Brutalities:

Down, Forward + Triangle
X-Ray (L2+R2 when meter is full)

Raiden's X-Ray execution sees him sending from his hands a shock with medium range. What is good in this move, especially against enemies that have the ability to teleport, is that the shock comes in both the directions.
