In MK2, Rayden is similar to how he looked in the first game, but his outfit now has blue all around the upper body.
He keeps his lighting, Torpedo and Teleport from the first game. He can now use the Torpedo in the air. Rayden is notable to have a special move that can only be used in multiplayer. His Electric Grab technique will cause the opponent to be shocked. If fast enough it is possible to perform a kick move right after. However, the move is disabled and unusable in Arcade mode.
Rayden mainly relies on his Torpedo and the long range of his normal move. His roundhouse kick is fast and he has great reach with his normal move. When used in the corner while the CPU is about to get up, the Torpedo will hit them. This can be repeated over and over until later in the tower, since the CPU will block the following attempts. It can also be used to avoid or retreat from the corner. His lighting is good at long range.
