If you’ve been looking to get your spook on in MultiVersus and play as Jason Voorhees, I’m here to break down everything you need to know about the iconic slasher, including all his combos and the best perks to use on him.

Alongside The Joker, Agent Smith and Stripe, Jason looks set to bring some old-school horror into the game and has a moveset full to bursting with Friday the 13th references.

Like his movie version, Jason is an unrelenting brute who puts his machete and axe to good use with heavy attacks that can quickly ring out opponents. With a selection of moves straight from the Friday the 13th playbook, prepare for some brutal combos.

Additionally, his bed-folding Crunch Time and Sweet Dreams sleeping bag attack have a wide area of attack, making it difficult for opponents to dodge.

While playing as Jason in MultiVersus, I found that his generalist preset perks are just the ticket for an unrelenting stream of attacks. These Perks are:

Perk

Description

Well Rounded

You receive a 5% boost to damage dealt and defence.

Purest of Motivations

Your team receives a 15% damage boost for 10 seconds after an ally is rung out.

 

If your teammate also selects this perk, the damage boost lasts for 20 seconds.

Speed Force Assist

You receive 5% increased base movement speed.

Pugilist

Your melee attacks deal increased damage.

While these will certainly get you through your early matches as Jason in MultiVersus, you’re eventually going to want to change them up later on so you can keep your opponents guessing.

How to unlock Jason Voorhees in MultiVersus

To unlock Jason in MultiVersus, you’ll need to pick up the Season 1 Battle Pass. After purchasing the Battle Pass, he will be unlocked immediately and you can start mastering his moves.

If you played the MultiVersus Beta, he will be unlocked for free so you won’t have to spend a penny. However, upon completing the Battle Pass, you'll be rewarded with the Uber Jason skin, straight from the Jason X movie.
